Getting a Wild Hair

I had a coach who used to call them “wild hair” intentions – those crazy, whimsical thoughts that you don’t really give much thought to because they’re so outlandish.
Having a wild hair intention is a fun way to get outside the box of your gremlin mind – the part of your brain that tells you what is possible and what is likely. That gremlin brain is often a show-stopper for some our big ideas.
Since our manifestation power lies in our ability to hold a thought, being able to get to that thought is what matters. That’s all it takes to get the ball rolling. If you can’t hold the thought, then you’re handicapped in what you can create.
So having a wild hair intention is a nice little trick to get a hold of one of those thoughts.
Another way to get to the cool thoughts you might not otherwise have access to is by finishing the question: “Wouldn’t it be cool if … ?” Or “Wouldn’t it be nice if … ?” works too.
It might seem like those thoughts don’t hold much power, but on the contrary, I often experience (as do my clients) that it’s THOSE easy, fun, seemingly fleeting thoughts that take manifest first and fast!
For that reason, fleeting thoughts have become my favorite. The reason they work so well has to be that we don’t have resistance (i.e. attachment) associated with those ideas. There’s nothing stopping them from swooping right on in!
My suggestion to you is to play with this one yourself. Entertain a wild hair notion or a fleeting thought (pleasant ones, preferably) and then forget about them. Remember this post and visit again to share your stories!

    I’m loving that idea of “asking sweetly,” Rick! That fits right in with the concept that the Universe conspires on our behalf, and all we need to do is gently indicate our desire with a sweet smile and it is done.

    THAT’S an allowing thought! Congrats to your wife for being so “easy” with her manifesting. She sets a great example!

    My wife has gotten magnificent at manifesting things on a whim. She was just telling me last night that she left for work that morning and thought, ” I wish I had a new pot to plant the Elephant Ears bulb my Mom gave me.” 20 minutes later she pulled into her first stop and the company was getting rid of a big indoor planting, and she asked and they said sure, take the pot.

    She is also starting a business and the Universe is falling over itself helping. All she does is sweetly ask. I love it.

    Now, while I am believing that I’m getting exactly what I’m asking for, this doesn’t seem to resonate with my thoughts. So, I’m going to work on the asking sweetly part.

    Thanks Jeanette. I happened upon your website the day before I discovered the Secret. (About a month ago). No coincidences.
