How do you get from where you are to where you want to go? Determine your destination, put the car in gear, step on the gas, and away you go!
In today’s techno-centric world, we need only turn to the GPS system on our dash to help us find our way. It’s as simple as entering our destination. A few bell sounds here-and-there to indicate where to turn (or perhaps a sultry voice to guide our way) and, before we know it, we’ve arrived at the place we summoned from the very beginning.
Sure, we may travel some unfamiliar roads along the way. And perhaps a neighborhood or two that leaves us feeling a bit uncomfortable. Yet, knowing our GPS system is well aware of our final destination, we can be fairly confident that we’ll arrive at the destination of our choosing. We can relax and let go and not worry so much about how we’re going to get there; we just know that we will.
Ok, pardon the pun, but you had to know where this was going. What does it take to arrive at the place in your life that you’ve longed for in your heart, that you’ve spent years dreaming about, that you’ve pictured in your mind a thousand times over (just last week)?
What if the answer was as simple, and as obvious, as programming it into your internal GPS system? As deliberately as you would enter “123 Main Street; Springfield, MO” in your external system, you enter the desired end result in your internal GPS and simply allow the details to show-up. And just like you do with your external GPS, trust that your internal system knows exactly how to take you where you truly desire.
Nothing kills a dream faster than getting caught in the net of “I don’t know how I’m going to do it.” And asking ourselves over and over again, “Exactly how am I going to get there?” Release yourself from the “how” and the notion that you must control every detail and allow the Universe (or God or Spirit) to show you the way.
What’s the worst thing that happens when you take a wrong turn every once in a while? The system simply recalculates and puts you on a slightly different path to get you to your destination. No problem.
Imagine that you could realize your dreams, your goals, and your highest aspirations in a similar fashion. Enter your (personal) destination by imprinting the end result in your mind's eye; then, watch how people, situations, and opportunities present themselves along the journey to help you find your way.
A couple of caveats for you.
First, don’t choose something you have a hard time believing in or it won't show up. Commitment to the destination is huge.
Second, don’t be attached to the outcome. For example, if you’re looking to get married, don’t insist on George Clooney. By all means however, insist on a relationship!
As you set your sights on your destination and get yourself in gear, consider a bit of Steppenwolf blaring from your sound system to start you on your way:
Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space
(Away you go, indeed!)
