As the current year comes to a close and the new one begins, I spend time getting my goals, budgets and plans in place. Part of this process is the Bliss List. The way this works for me is to write out a list of all the things I would like to experience or have in the new year. I don’t spend too much time thinking about it. I just let it flow. It could be small intangible things or something big in the physical realm. Just let whatever comes to mind happen without judgement or criticism. I suppose you could do the same thing on your computer or other hand held device. I still enjoy the act of writing on paper. It seems to hold more significance for some reason. This is about setting your intent and then allowing the Universe to support your desires. Connect with what you believe will make you very happy.
Once you have made your list put it away and don’t think about it. You have planted the seeds. There is not much else you need to do. You can look at your list once or twice during the year to see how things are going. It’s fun to see how things unfold. Many times things turn out better than I could possibly have guessed! I have also done vision boards in the past. You simply get some magazines and cut out pictures that you like and glue them to poster board. I have a vision board I created a few years ago and almost everything has come true including my trip to Japan. It has taken longer than a year but I still enjoy looking at it. I have it hanging in my closet where I see it several times a day.
I suggest that you make a life Bliss List and a one year Bliss List. I have helped my bodywork clients with this project. Sometimes you need someone to share the process with so that you will get it done. My bank has a sign that says – Just Begin – The Rest is Easy. Have fun and just wait until your intent starts to blossom. Perhaps the secret is in taking time to appreciate all the wonderful things we have. Slowing down long enough to appreciate the gift of life and all it has to offer is definitely a benefit. For me a cleaner house will also be a benefit.
