Prior to having children, my husband and I watched a White Christmas travel experience on T.V. that has stayed in our hearts forever image the thrill of being able to travel to the Arctic Circle and spend Christmas with Santa at the North Pole!
Ill admit that even though Im all grown up, I still get as excited as a young girl every Christmas and the thought of having a wonderful Christmas adventure to the North Pole stayed with me for years. When we had our daughters, it became even more important for me to share an experience of this kind with my children. I remember writing down a Grand Dream Goal of Spending Christmas in the North Pole.
I obtained brochures about White Christmas travel experiences and took them home. I remember sitting across from my husband as we looked through the magazines, our eyes taking in the breathtaking scenery and our hearts resonating with the exciting itineraries. At one point, we both glanced up at the same time and stared deeply into each others eyes. The emotion began to flow. We were moved to tears by the thought of taking our children (who still believed in the magic of Santa Claus) to spend Christmas with the ‘real’ Santa at the North Pole. We never did discuss a date or a year that we intended to travel, we just knew that this was an experience our hearts strongly desired to have while the children were still young enough to believe.
One of the principles I follow is: See your Desire, Create your Desire. Displaying pictures of your dreams and looking at these images every day is a powerful tool to manifest them into reality. That year, my wall calendar showed the days of December alongside an image of Santa standing in the snow holding a sack of toys. Was this a sign? Yes! I thought and affixed the picture to the wall above my desk where I would see it every day. Having done this, I wrote out my ideal White Christmas holiday itinerary and stored it in my dream folder to read on a regular basis. These two, very simple steps aligned my heart and my mind and this made it easy to surrender to my dreams and release attachment to the date because I just knew it was going to come true.
One night in November 2006 when I was lying in my husbands arms, he said How much do you love me? I replied with our family response of More than all the grains of sand on all the beaches of the World. and it was at this point that he placed tickets for a Fully Paid, 7 Week European Christmas Adventure on his chest! YeeeeHaaaa! I was over the moon! WOW! How fabulous to have my amazing dream of a week in the North Pole manifest into reality only 2 months after I first wrote it down and receive a bonus 6 week European holiday as well!
The steps I took to manifest my dream into reality are:
1. Defined a heart-felt desire
2. Saw it clearly in my mind
3. Put my dream in writing
4. Obtained a picture
5. Shared my dream with a like minded individual
6. Cried tears of joy when imagining it coming true
7. Had faith that it was going to happen
This wasnt a head desire, it was a heart desire. My thinking and planning mind didnt even get involved and not once did I entertain thoughts about how it was going to come true. I just knew what I wanted, wrote it down, felt the joyful emotions associated with it, believed it was going to come true and then got out of the way.
I believe the above story is a true reflection of the magical Law of Attraction. Its a perfect example of the ease and simplicity with which you can swiftly attract your dreams when you align a desire with your heart and soul, then surrender and allow the Universe to work in its own perfect way.
