If Your Dream Happened, What Next?

August 11, 2015 | 31 Comments »

Imagine Your Big Dream HappenedImagine you just got what you’ve always wanted …

That big thing you’ve been working on manifesting – or the secret dream you’ve been entertaining … pretend it just happened.

What would you do next?

(I mean after the success registers and you share the good news and post the pics.)

What do you do after that?

Whatever it is, maybe do that thing now.

It just might cue Universe to deliver it once and for all.

If my big things happened …

If I sold all my productsΒ and was making a bazillion dollars as the best in the LOA business – you know what I’d do next? I’d work with my people. I’d get busy doing my thing – inspiring conscious creators to amp up their manifesting game.

If my body was in tip top shape, healthier and more amazing than ever, you know what I’d do next? I’d enjoy it. I’d wear clothes that did it justice and move through the world like someone who was comfortable in her skin. I would take super good care and love this body through and through.

If I were living on a gorgeous property that celebrated nature and animals, you know what I’d do next? I’d get outside and enjoy it. I’d admire the trees, and feed the birds, and pet the goats, and tend the garden. Just generally enjoy being there.

All of those things I can do now, in some form or fashion.

(Several of them I already am doing – but there’s a vibrational difference between doing it to get there and doing it because you are there. Know what I mean? Different signals.)

You can probably sense what an empowering move this would be, for a variety of reasons:

  • It creates internal alignment with the big dream. Woot!
  • It takes pressure off the big thing to happen.
  • It moves us right along the ‘good life’ spectrum, so we’re not stuck waiting for something to manifest.

Not only would you be delighted, but Universe would see you as a vibrational match to those dreams. And the manifestation isn’t far behind!

Give some thought to what you would do after your big dream unfolds. Whatever that is, see if you can find a way to engage that now.

It could be a game-changer.

    Martha Beck asked me this question many years ago, and my answer to “what next?” was REST! I’d lay on the couch with RELIEF and REST!

    She made that my homework. (To lay on the couch as if my dream of being a thriving coach had already happened.)

    Pretty brilliant way to create alignment! πŸ™‚

  2. Love it! Florence Scovel-Shinn called it “digging your ditches” (in preparation for the deluge).

    It doesn’t have to take money…it could be clearing out the old to make room for the new, doing online research in preparation, organizing thoughts on paper, or making inquiries for your ‘support team’.

    Thanks for the reminder, Jeannette!

    Many blessings,

    • Jeannette says:

      That’s an important point, Nancy – that it doesn’t have to take money, and it doesn’t have to require another person (that’s another one people often get held up by), in order to practice this. πŸ™‚

  3. Elle says:

    Jump in the pool with my clothes on, celebrate with loved ones all the while flashing my best smile which for sure I won’t be able to wipe off. I was actually practicing these yesterday (not the pool part) so thank you, Jeannette for this! This is a sign!

  4. sue Wiesbrook says:

    You talk about if you have a body in good shape you would wear clothes that do it justice. I just don’t know how to do that at 40 pounds overweight. I am just not good at this.

    • Sue — You might want to imagine something else that is really easy to get to. Like: having a conversation with a friend about how much lighter you feel in your thin body. Or: finding boxes to put all your old clothes in to take to Goodwill. Being easy with this, as much as you can, will work wonders!

    • Jeannette says:

      No matter what our weight or shape is, Sue, we can get better at wearing clothes that do it justice. We don’t have to wait for “perfection” to wear clothes we look and feel great in. πŸ™‚

      Frank, really good advice to “be easy with it”!

  5. Love this!

    When it comes to a specific manifestation, I imagine what it would look like and feel like to be in that moment right after my intention has happened.

    And I really like focusing on simple, mundane things like:

    going to pee out of excitement (which I still do after 48 years of having this body) or…
    watching a movie and having that sudden memory that the thing I wanted to happen has happened or…
    ordering dinner at a restaurant and thinking about how that one things is now done.

    These are things I know I will be doing because I know how I am after intentional manifestation.

    Paul & The Communion of Light have said to me, a number of times, that the key to fast manifestation is to imagine the me that I see myself as right now as having a slightly amplified experience as a result of my intended manifestation. And that has turned out to be true over and over again.

    Thanks Jeannette!

    • Jeannette says:

      I got goosebumps reading this, Frank:

      “… the key to fast manifestation is to imagine the me that I see myself as right now as having a slightly amplified experience as a result of my intended manifestation. And that has turned out to be true over and over again.”

      Love that! Thanks for sharing it here! πŸ™‚

  6. Amanda says:

    Oh this is such a delicious post! I forgot all about this:-)

  7. Dear Jeannette,

    Thanks so much for this wonderful post, absolutely wonderful to imagine that our wishes have become manifest and think about what next. It is so much fun to do this and also shows how we can get on with the next thing right now…as well as a little reminder that we are okay either way.

    I would love to use the first line of your blog post….”Imagine if what you always….” on my website imagine365.org with your permission.

    Many thanks,

    I LOVE this exercise! I was listening to the audio book, “Sacred Success” by Barbara Stanny recently, while I was on a road trip. She said when you are doing anything, ask yourself, “What do I want to come of this?” because “clarification determines the outcome”. I think Bashar may have spoken about this too. Your exercise makes me think of the same thing – live the outcome!

  9. Heather says:

    Great exercise, Jeannette. πŸ™‚

    1st dream: I would take a nap, feeling grateful, happy, accomplished, proud.

    2nd dream: I would get my swimsuit ready πŸ˜€

    3rd dream: I would again take a nap,feeling grateful, happy, accomplished, proud.

    Hahaha I can do them now. πŸ˜€

    • Jeannette says:

      Yay for naps and swimsuits, Heather! lol And for feeling grateful, happy and accomplished. (Sounds you and I have lots in common.) πŸ™‚

  10. Great article, good suggestions. You are a top notch LOA person, and it shows when talking about living the future as if it is now. Acting like you already have what you desire. Good one again.

  11. Practically Always Pollyanna says:

    Fab post. I want to try this out!!!

  12. Sara says:

    Oh Jeannette! You always hit it out of the park! What a brilliant idea. I’ve been working with an intense health challenge for 4 years now. One forgets the beautiful future just waiting on the other side. Thank you!!

    • Jeannette says:

      Here’s to getting on the vibrational side of those changes you’re looking forward to, Sara. I’m seeing you appreciative and delighted and so very satisfied. πŸ™‚

  13. Kelly says:

    Fabulous post!! Does anyone have suggestions for what one would do after marrying one’s dream mate:)?

    • Jeannette says:

      All of my responses to that question are unhelpful, I’m afraid, Kelly. (Despite my most excellent imagination, I cannot pretend to be happy about getting married. Yikes!)

      I bet someone else who has a much better marriage vibe will have a good suggestion, though …

    • SO funny! I was going to reply to this last night and Jeannette’s reply reminded me to do so.

      I really, really love imagining the mundane things, because even in my own high-flying life, most of the things that happen are mundane.

      So the everyday things you do together:

      >> eating dinner (set a space for him/her at the table),

      >> cleaning house (imagine what things you don’t like to do that your perfect mate will be delighted to do and how fast cleaning house now is),

      >> walking the dog (as you walk the dog, tell the dog that your mate had to skip this one but that he/she will be here next time — dogs always agree, so that’s an easy one!)

      On and on like that.

      Hope this helps!

    Dear Jeannette,
    I was participating in a new age sharing group, and a member suggested that each we try an “LOA” type dream request. The group leader said “No”, and I let the the thought go.

    However much to my surprise that night I had a vivid dream experience where I was speaking directly to each member of the group saying, “Don’t forget God loves you!”.

    The next time we met I did just that, with no expectations, only an unconditional loving intent.

    It was a unique experience which generated a wonderfully flowing group energy, that went beyond personal ego.

    I will always be grateful for that opportunity.

    Later as a gift when I left the group, I painted “The Circle” showing this positive flow of energy which I gave to the Group leader, and his Life Partner. The painting hangs in their store.

    It can be found under ‘Photos” at my Facebook page:

    As always, thank you for your insightful LOA Blog.

    This is a great idea! You really do have to imagine as if you’ve already manifested whatever it is you truly desire, and with the belief it’s truly possible. These are the key components of the law of attraction.
