I use tricks to help me - images in particular. While I have successfully set goals using collage compiled into a visual of what I want to see in the future, I am an artist and visualizer by trade. One of the things I get paid to do is to draw pictures of people. I draw what they say, what they think, their words, metaphors, dreams, strategies and new desired realities.
What I have found is that when you or any team take the time to draw out what is inside, you lay claim to that which you desire. When a team paints a powerful picture of what they want to see happen, they begin to own it and to see it, both inside their heads and outside on the page. The whole process sends out an internal and external call to life - in some wild and unseen process - and life does what it does best, it responds. Subsequently things change and often quite dramatically.
We are stepping into a new year - 2010.
What would you like to call out for? Whatever it is, consider doing it with intention (that's the drawing the picture of it part) and love (that's the loving every aspect of what you imagine); two things that when combined, create combustion and results.
Many of you have done my Snapshot of the Big Picture process.
Now is a great time to do it again. If you don't remember how it goes, go back to my blog from January of last year and get started ringing in a year full of all the things you want to have.
Add to the visual you create, a bit of night and day dreaming and a little elbow grease.
Then be sure to let me know what happens (I believe that great things will).
Here is wishing you and yours the very best and happiest of new years!
P.S. Please feel free to visit my art on display at Ella Mon in Ballard starting the second weekend in January and into February.
