Bob Proctor, featured in The Secret, suggests writing down what you want. “Begin each sentence with, I am so happy and grateful now that…” (and you fill in the rest). When you give thanks as though you have already received what you want, you are emitting a powerful signal to the universe. That signal is saying that you have it already because you are feeling gratitude for it now. Each morning before you get out of bed, make it a habit to feel the feelings of gratitude in advance for the great day ahead, as though it is done.
