A Magical Way to Attract More of What You Want!

Fairy Godmother by Ingvard The Terrible

Last week I shared a simple but powerful journal exercise with you, designed to help you get clarity about what you REALLY want in life. If you didn’t read it, or need to refresh your memory, here’s the link:  Getting to the Heart of things

All you needed to do was to write an answer to a simple question, and then do this again over a period of days.  That simple question was What do I want?

Today I’m going to show you how to begin attracting what you want, through another simple technique can change your whole world.

Isn’t this gorgeous! Heart Shaped Map, 1536, by Oronce – 1494-1555

This week I want you to use your answers to last week’s million dollar question, and rephrase your words so that you are affirming that you now have these things.

If you wrote five days of What do I want? you will now have five days of I now have… to write.

Affirming these things as already being a part of your life creates a magical and magnetic attraction.

Does it work?

You bet it does!

In the spirit of sharing, I’ll show you an example chosen at random from my 2008 diary.  You’ll see that it is focused on the petty day-to-day stuff of my life at that time. That’s how it should be! Back then I was very ill, bedridden most of the time, unable to travel due to poor health, and unable to even walk up stairs without getting breathless.  I had a partially finished manuscript but I really didn’t know if I would ever finish a book, or if it would be any good.  Money was tight.  I had no clothes that fit me, but luckily I was infrequently invited anywhere, so the limited wardrobe wasn’t an issue. The neighbours had a dog that was driving me mad with his incessant yapping.  It’s fair to say life was challenging, and I couldn’t see a way to change it.

What do I want?  Monday April 21 2008 Brisbane

What do I want? I want to be really fit and to be able to walk endlessly even if it is up or downhill or in difficult terrain.  I want to have a life that is full of travel and adventure.  To achieve this I need to have good health.  I want to be able to easily make good choices about what I eat, how I exercise, and what sort of lifestyle I choose.  I choose health.

What do I want? I want a life of passive income that gives me time to be a part-time writer and psychic, and a part-time adventurer of other lands and cultures and even of my lands and cultures.  I want another dog who is well behaved like his brother Charlie and who does not bark needlessly.  I want to have good friends who invite me places and I want to be able to be a good friend to them.

I want to be able to write wonderful books that mean something to people and that are well written.  Really good books, not just successful books.  I want to have a wardrobe of adventure clothes and outdoor clothes and ball-gowns and town clothes and things for every occasion.

I want to pay off my credit cards in full each month and each month be investing in houses or shares or other interests that pay dividends and create capital growth.  I want to keep giving to charity and helping others.  I want to have good posture.

Here’s what I wrote as my What I now Have…  You write this by using your initial answers and affirming, with joy and gratitude that you now have these things in your life. If you feel uncomfortable as you write any of this, pay attention to those feelings and them bless them and release them – you no longer need to be in resistance to attracting good into your life. And don’t worry about HOW you’re going to attract these. That’s the Universe’s job!

What I now have  Monday April 28, 2008, The Farm

I am so happy and grateful that I am now really fit and able to walk endlessly up or downhill or in difficult terrain.  I have a life that is full of travel and adventure.  I enjoy good health.  I easily make good choices about what I eat, how I exercise, and what sort of lifestyle I choose.  I choose health.

I have a wonderful life of passive income.  I am a part-time writer and psychic, and a part-time adventurer of other lands and cultures and even of my lands and cultures.  I have a beautiful new dog who is well behaved like his brother Charlie and is quiet and obedient.  My good friends invite me places and I am a good friend to them.

I write wonderful books that mean something to people and that are well written.  Really good books, not just successful books. I have a wardrobe of adventure clothes and outdoor clothes and ball-gowns and town clothes and things for every occasion.

I happily pay off my credit cards in full each month and each month I now invest in houses or shares or other interests that pay dividends and create capital growth.  I enjoy giving to charity and helping others.  I have excellent posture.

This was an interesting exercise for me this morning, as I almost never go back and review my old journals.  So now it’s July 9, 2012.  What has really changed for me?

Here’s the view from my hotel in Gubbio, Italy, 2010!

I have vastly improved health, and can walk miles.  I have had two overseas trips, and have two more planned and booked. I’m choosing health and have things in place that support this choice.

I have the beginnings of passive income streams, and more strands to come. I pay my credit cards off each month, and have investments. I only work part-time, at writing and at psychic work, and I have a beautiful dog Bert who is a brother to Charlie.

I have three completed manuscripts, one currently under review with a publisher after being accepted for the QWC Hachette Manuscript Development Program in 2011, and two more new manuscripts underway. My wardrobe has a range of new clothes and I plan to get some made when I am in Thailand later this year.

I had a fund-raising high tea only yesterday, and I can happily say that I have some wonderful friends, and can contribute to charities in ways that are very meaningful to me.

Did I do any of this with a conscious plan, carefully thought out and enacted?

No.

I just did this exercise.

Works pretty well, don’t you think?

Here’s a photo one of my beautiful friends took from our High Tea yesterday, where we raised money to support a young man’s education and to feed and house his family while he is at University.

  1. Good for you Nicole! I’m really pleased that all of these things are working out for you. Now that I’ve got pages of last week’s ‘What do I want?’ exercise, I must do the next part of the exercise and affirm that I now have all these things. I’m glad you posted this because I had been wondering what to do about the previous exercise as it didn’t seem quite finished somehow. Now I know why! Thank you, I’m looking forward to my affirmations.

  2. Thanks for this, and for the previous posts on things like self-love and nurturing. I’m new to your blog — still looking through all the posts and having a great time doing so.

  3. Thank you so much, Nicole, this is inspirational. I am thrilled for you, at how you turned your life around and I am inspired afresh! Love and Light.

  4. Smilin’ all over…so inspired to create the life of my dreams. Looking back at last weeks exercise has been very interesting to see how I only asked for change within…nothing from the outside world! I’m going to cut loose and do it again & put it all out to the world.

    You are a treasure of a friend & yesterday was awesome beyond mere words. The letter from my ‘Fairy Godmother’ is absolutely so perfect in every way…even the picture on the front. Just Loved…Loved…Loved being part of your inaugural fundraising High Tea…xxx

  5. man, you’re a good answer to a crazy question! thanks for the inspiration! here’s to good friends, loving connections, spiritual guidance and being a great mate! :)

  6. Very timely and good on you for actually doing the excersize!! So ofrten I intend to do something like this and never actually do it! You have inspired me to take action and then let the Universe fulfill its side of the ‘bargain’. Thank you

  7. Awesome! I was meant to do that exercise last week when you posted it and doh! life got in the way – I shall start it tomorrow and then follow up with this post. Yes, I believe it works and people like you are absolute proof (well done you, gorgeous soul) I can even see in myself after the very bad start to this year just by setting my intention how my life is changing and moving toward my goal. Bless you soul sista as always ♥

    You might be wondering why the different name? I’ve started a new blog – but not quite finished yet but will be soon :)

  8. I started to do the exercise then got waylaid – I will have to start again when I am ready I guess, am a bit overwhelmed at the moment. I find your blog a great source of wisdom and comfort – thanks you lovely person, Nicole! Jx

  9. Hi Nicole
    Visited you years ago – and boy has my life changed since – it’s taken a while to navigate myself back to me but it’s been a journey I’ve loved and grown from. Unbelievably stumbled across your blog – the universe brings you want you need when you need it I guess. Have plateaued out since manifesting my dream life near the sea and couldn’t find the door to the next stage – but hey I just found the map to it through your blog. Thank you for this – I am about to begin this exercise. I’ve felt the shift in the last week for my family as a whole and I know I am ready to receive my the direction for my next part of my life which I just know is fun fun fun…… My blessings to you forever, Karen XXX :o)
