How to Receive Your Heart’s Desire
In 1969, a mostly unknown, 28-year old actor and martial artist named Bruce Lee wrote a letter to himself to commit a path for his future. He put ideas to paper and his heart’s desire out into the world.
He got them back.
My Definite Chief Aim
I, Bruce Lee, will be the first highest paid Oriental super star in the United States. In return I will give the most exciting performances and render the best of quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting 1970 I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end of 1980 I will have in my possession $10,000,000. I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness.
Do this with your dreams and goals, no matter how lofty. Be lofty. Do it in every area of your life: your intimate relationship, your career, your physical health, your connection to God or spirit.
Imagine what an 11 out of 10 would look like. Write it down.
Each day, go into meditation and focus briefly on the finished picture of your goals. For example, one of Bruce Lee’s goals was to be the highest paid Oriental star in the U.S. He might visualize a newspaper headline with his name announcing his salary in his next movie. He could envision a marquee with his name headlining.
Feel what this would be like to see and experience these things. Put yourself there and feel it in your body. This is very important.
Then let it go. All you need is a few minutes each day to focus on it, enliven it and the universe will do the rest. Look out in your daily life for ways your wishes are coming back to you.
To sum up:
1) Make your list. If you can’t rate your imaginings as an 11/10, they aren’t big enough. Go bigger.
2) Each day, set aside 5-10 minutes. I like to do this in the morning, before I start my day. Commit to this time daily.
3) Bring yourself into a meditative state first. Two suggestions for getting there: a) focus on your breathing or b) chant a high-vibration word. I like the word “Hu.” It’s an ancient name for God. Do either of these two things (or something else) for a few minutes to settle down your mind.
4) Feel the outcome of your desires. How would it feel to be cashing that million-dollar cheque? Or snuggling up next to your soul mate as you fall asleep in each other’s arms? Feel it in your body and evoke an emotional response.
You create your own reality. Every day.
Do it now.
