Yesterday was my husband’s birthday. Today is the anniversary of our first date. I’ll tell you how I met him 11 years ago. I was living at a Zen monastery and another of the monks asked me, “Who would be your perfect mate?” After thinking a couple of moments I described, off the top of my head, a perfect guy for me… “tall, dark and handsome”…

He walked in the door and asked me out, a week or two later.

The moral of the story:

When we know what we want, we send out a beacon… we not only are then able to see it, but it is able to see us, too.

Get clear on what you want. Have fun with it.

When we are clear about what we want it sends out a beacon, making it easier for you to locate what you want, and it more able to locate you, too.

What keeps us from doing this is

  • distrust in our desires
  • distrust in our imagination
  • distrust in ourselves

What can help you practice getting clear on what you want and send a beacon is learning to tap into, and communicate with, your subconscious mind—the part of your mind that doesn’t over-analyze, that trusts, and that is your body.
