Have you ever been to a job interview where the interviewer asks the question, "Where would you like to be in five years?" And you answer something that sounds good, but it isn't exactly the truth?
You aren't going to tell an interviewer, "Well, when I'm admitted to grad school I'm dumping this crappy job and starting the life I really want." If everyone answered truthfully most people would not get the job.
My Mentor taught me something years ago, and I tried it back then….but haven't done it for a few years. She told me to write a detailed description of your future on a piece of paper, fold it up, and put it away. She always kept her lists in books, and if you borrowed a book she searched for her wishes in the pages before she handed you the book.
She told me that when she was younger, she had a dream house in mind. She wrote out a detailed description of the house, what it looked like, how may rooms it had, what kind of kitchen she wanted, what kind of feeling the house had, and where it was located.
She folded the paper up, placed it in a book, and forgot about it. Years later, she and her husband built her dream house. The house was built in the country, it had a room for every one of her children, and it was the peaceful sanctuary she always wanted. She had every board blessed with holy water, and she even placed pyramids in between the floors. The energy in that home is amazing, and you feel like you have walked into another world when you passed the threshold.
My Mentor told me that a few years after she moved in, someone wanted to borrow a book, and she found a sheet of paper with the wish for her house in it. She read the list and nearly everything she wished for had come true.
I think it's time a start a new list. It can't hurt to have a list for me, the universe, and my Otherworld Entities.
Where do you want to be in five years?
