Sometimes I wake up with an idea for a post.
Except it doesn’t feel like an idea I had, but rather one that was given from above while I was sleepy enough to hear it.
This is one of those posts.
Which is why it seems angels want someone here to let the beginning of 2017 be even better than they were thinking.
Here’s the idea delivered this morning as best I can sum it up …
You’ve probably got something in mind about how your new year’s eve is going to go, right?
Whatever you’re imagining, how about we upgrade it a titch?
Because whatever we imagine is what we’re a match for experiencing.
And I guarantee just about every one of us has an even better new year’s eve in store than we’re allowing.
In fact, here’s a recent personal example:
I had RSVPd yes when a love interest invited me to his place for a holiday party.
I’m not normally a party kind of girl. As an extreme introvert, I actually consider parties torturous. Truly torturous.
It is not my idea of a good time.
Especially when I don’t know anyone there. I was in a state of dread every time I thought about it.
But cancelling didn’t feel good, and I stopped myself from conjuring every legit excuse I could imagine that might prevent me from attending. (Sick dogs, bad weather, broke down cars – you name it, I had to curb myself from going there mentally. Because I know I am completely capable of conjuring that stuff.)
So apparently I’m going to this damn party I don’t really want to go to.
(Trust me, the guy was super hot, and I didn’t know him well enough to explain that I’m a homebody who doesn’t do social gatherings, or I would not have put myself through this!)
On the way there, I used my magical powers to rethink the night. (Conscious creators know I’m just talking about my imagination. It’s the single most powerful tool we’ve ever been given.)
And I decided to use mine for good instead of not-so-good.
Here I’d been conjuring up painful and strained conversations. Awkward interactions with people who were drinking too much. Tense feelings in general. Imagining how soon I might make my escape.
And I switched it up to imagine myself feeling comfortable in this gathering. I imagined huge genuine smiles and lots of fun. I imagined delightful people that I was happy to talk with. I imagined laughing so hard I was doubled over.
I imagined myself having a good time.
Yes, it was a stretch, but I’m good at engaging my imagination for my benefit instead of my detriment.
I’m not going to lie – I circled the place three times before I could bring myself to park and walk in. (When I say “extreme introvert,” I’m not exaggerating.)
But within minutes of making it through the front door, I felt comfortable. These were good people. They were friendly and welcoming. And they were mostly sober, which is a good thing in my book.
They were open and engaging. They were interesting and funny. I was having fun! With them!
I wondered why I ever worried about going to a party! I’m a party girl! This is my idea of a good time! We should totally do this again – soon!
The smiles were big and genuine. I laughed so hard I maybe embarrassed myself a little. But I love that about me, so it’s okay.
I loved these people in a rather inexplicable way. I adored them. I enjoyed getting to know them and loved their stories. They were amazing! Such good people! I felt lucky to have been invited into this circle.
Believe it or not, I was the last one to leave, that’s how much fun I was having. I would have stayed longer if anyone else had.
I hoped that they were having a new year’s eve party and that I might get invited to it, too. lol
Isn’t it cool what unfolds when we use our creative powers for good?!
You’ve probably don’t have the kind of new year’s eve handicap I had for that holiday party, but regardless of what you’re imagining about your new year’s eve, maybe give Universe a chance to make it even better by imagining it so.
Imagine yourself having even more fun. Or more peace. Or joy. Whatever you’re in the mood for.
See yourself smiling and loving and enjoying. Or sleeping contentedly – if that’s more up your alley.
Feel the empowerment or satisfaction or positive anticipation – or whatever you’d like to feel.
Conjure up the vibrations of excitement and delight, or love and connection – even just a super cool surprise! – and Universe will coordinate that manifestation for you.
Let’s at least put aside any negative expectations we might be holding, and make room for something even better.
Seems like a great way to start the new year to me.
I learned this gem from Julie B at GVU. She’s a rock star manifestor and proved it again with this easy peasy super effective manifesting charm.
Here’s how it works …
When things don’t look so good, and you can’t figure out how it’s going to work out, just say, “Even better!” out loud (or in your head) until you feel the vibe click.
We all know that vibration right?
Okay, that’s the vibe we’re looking to activate. Just by saying the words “Even better!” (without knowing what it looks like) we make room for something even better to unfold than we were capable of thinking up ourselves.
Julie B uses it when someone gives her an answer that wasn’t what she was hoping for. Like when the person she needs to see can’t meet this week, but they can next week. She declares “even better” on the spot which transforms the “ok, I guess I’ll make do” vibe to “fabulous news” vibe.
And we know the magic that unfolds when we dial up good vibes!
GVU members know some of my “even better” stories from recent forum posts:
I shared how nervous I was to get a new retainer after mine broke. When my regular dentist didn’t come through, I found a local orthodontist who got me in the same day and had a whole different kind ready that afternoon. It’s more comfortable, easier to clean, and cheaper to boot! (Even better!)
I needed new sandals for Maui, and was striking out left and right online and off, until I thought to swap out my “dang it” vibe for “even better!” Sure enough two fabulous sales guys plus a raving customer (who let me try on her shoes) at REI hooked me up with three fabulous sandals! I love them even more than my last pair – and that’s saying something!
Then I’m shopping for a mother’s day present, and can’t find what I’m looking for anywhere. When it seems I’m super SOL, Russ suggests a store I wouldn’t have thought to try. I’m sure he’s wrong – they won’t have it. But at the last minute I swap out that warped intention with my “even better” lucky charm. Not only did I find what I was looking for, but – you guessed it – it was even better than I hoped! Came home with four – two for mom, two for me!
A friend is looking for a new facility for her horses.
(I get to play with her and the herd once she gets settled, so I have huge incentive to see her manifest this soon.)
I told her she could borrow my “even better” lucky charm.
And then I thought everyone should have one of these. 🙂
All you gotta do is remember to say the words (make sure you feel the vibe, too) to let delightful results unfold.
I’ll use it when it’s time to sit in a new hair stylist’s chair later this month. And maybe next time I try a new restaurant. And definitely when I go out on a new date.
Thanks again to Julie B for teaching me her “Even Better” magic.
Those of you who know Access Consciousness probably know the power of its cousin “How does it get any better than this?” And of course we all love Julia Hamrick’s Easy World magic, too!
Regardless of how we engage it, here’s to getting out of our own way and letting Universe deliver it even better.
