Want more prosperity in your life? One of the best and easiest ways to get the Universe involved in bringing prosperity to you is with the Placemat Exercise, a unique communication tool developed by Abraham Hicks. It’s called the Placemat Exercise because Jerry and Esther Hicks used to do it on restaurant placemats. It’s so easy you can literally do it anywhere. Here’s how:
- Daily take a fresh sheet of paper and draw a line down the middle. On the left side of the page, write “Things I Want to Be, Do or Have Today.” On the right side of the page, write “Things I Want the Universe to Bring Me Today.”
- On the left side of the page, write only the things you really want to be, do or have. Do not include things you have to do, should do or don’t want to do. This is not your to do list for the day. This is an exercise to settle your mind on items that please you, that you are looking forward to, that inspire you.
- On the right side of the page, write the things you want the Universe to do or bring you today. This includes things over which you have no control, things you don’t want to do but have to, or things you just don’t want to think about. Ask for inspiration or willingness to do the things you have to do but don’t want to. Ask the Universe to take care of things you don’t want to do. Ask the Universe to make your travels timely and without delay (you have no control over this). Whatever you would like the Universe to do, including bringing you certain states of being like joy, ask and it is given.
- Once you have completed your list, spend at least 17 seconds feeling pure positive emotion while focusing on each item. Feel what it would feel like to have those items on the Universe’s side of the page completed. Imagine having those things already done. The goal is to string together 17 whole seconds of pure positive feeling for each item on your list. This takes a little focus, and it’s worth it. Each 17 seconds of pure positive emotion is worth 2000 hours of physical work on the world plane. Learn more about Abraham Hicks by going to their website at http://www.abraham-hicks.com.
