Here’s a little exercise for creating a plan of action that will leverage the Universe and engage the magic. It’s such a simple “plan” (if that’s even the right word) that you can think of it and assemble your own version of it without even putting pen to paper, although for your first time or two with it, I recommend writing it down. Once you understand the exercise, you can do it when you’re dozing off to sleep, walking the dog, or driving to work. This exercise gives you a tool for looking at your responsibilities versus those you delegate to the Universe.
The Triangle Exercise
Your Side of the Triangle
On your side of the triangle think of and include (or write down) anything and everything you can do to further your advancement toward the realization of your dream. Include all you can do, physically, logically, and spiritually to achieve the goal at the top of the triangle.
Here are some ideas that may or may not apply to whatever it is you want:
For improving a relationship:
For starting a new relationship:
Spiritually speaking, no matter what you’re after, here are some entries for your side of the triangle, if they appeal to you:
There’s nothing “new” on these lists; what’s new is what you’ll bring to them, now that you understand how your baby steps will enable the Universe’s giant steps on your behalf— and this can make all the difference.
The Universe’s Side of the Triangle
Finally, on the other side of the triangle, think of the possible magic, miracles, serendipities, and happy accidents that you might experience, all of which would also help you advance toward the realization of your dream. This is where you’re going to put in what the Universe can do for you. Some examples:
Depending on what your dream is, please add your own ideas to both sides of your triangle.
Once you’ve made your lists, take a look at both sides of the triangle and then realize that you doing everything on your side of the triangle, without the Universe doing its part, would never be enough to make your dream come true. Similarly, if the Universe were ready to rock and roll on your behalf, able to do everything on its side of the triangle, yet you weren’t doing your part, progress would be impossible. If you want the Universe to be able to do all it can, with all it has, from where it is, then you must do all you can, with what you have, from where you are. We do have a choice as to just how much of the Universe we’ll unleash, and it’s based on the choice of how much action we take.
