Writing Reality

4 Sep

my new dance room

Starting new things can be tricky.  And starting a new job, at a new school has been challenging to navigate.  I have been constantly wondering: Where do I go for what? Who do I ask?  How will I make friends (for real)?  My mind becomes filled with the general thought of – everything is hard.  Everything!  Like making friends, getting my room set up, planning my curriculum, finding the right person to talk to, etc, etc.  Eventually I started to believe the voices in my head, and I felt super stuck.  So I took matters into my own hands, and practiced a method I have been learning thanks to my work with Handel.

I write what I want my life to look like.  I filled my mini-intention book with big declarations for my day first thing in the morning.

So this is what I wrote…

Tuesday:

I am an irresistible friend.  People are drawn to me because I am a good listener.  I make people feel valued and I am interesting.  I am a source of energy and light and people gravitate towards me.

The Result:

The moment I walked into the building Tuesday morning a woman who I have not yet met, came directly up to me and introduced herself.  I had meaningful conversations with people I had not yet seen since we returned to school, I had a place to sit at lunch, I was an irresistible friend!

Wednesday: 

I am a powerful leader.  I speak with clarity and grace, and I get what I want and what I need seamlessly.  It is easy, I attract things effortlessly.

The Result:  The materials that I was missing for my dance room were delivered straight to my room.  I found more of my missing materials in a pile on the 7th floor.  I ate lunch with my boss and went through my whole laundry list of requests that were received openly.  I was a powerhouse of clarity and grace!

I know it is silly, I sometimes can’t help but laugh at myself while I am sitting on the subway telling myself ‘You are an irresistible friend Leah!’.   haha. BUT IT WORKS!  There is something very powerful that happens when you claim something before it has become real.  Chasing out the negative thoughts and replacing them with positive ones.  By setting my intention for the day ahead my thoughts and actions are channeled and in alignment with my ultimate vision for who I want to be.
