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!
