Today's Worksheet: A Perfect Twelve

In Esther and Jerry Hick's book Ask And It Is Given, Abraham Hicks suggests a beautiful exercise whereby you envision your ideal twelve hours.

I'd like to add a twist to that: Envision an ideal "Home Day" (a more fantastical scenario). It's important to imagine both a doable day and a fantastical day because we want to create images that feel resonant and reachable, and loosen up some bigger possibility thinking.

Home Day Perfection
Keep your vision within the confines of space and time. Let your imagination and idealism unfurl, but save grossly impractical things like "I wake up in Athens, lunch in Manhattan, and smoke a bedtime hookah in Rajasthan," for your Away Day fantasy.

In everyday life, where would you be, what would you be doing, who would you be with, what would you be eating, how would you be earning, helping, creating, living, loving in a span of twelve hours? Walk through everything that would go into the waking hours of blissdom for you.

Focus on ideal. If bliss would be "I'm working in my jammies from home," and presently you're commuting three hours to the office, write it down anyway.

Away Day Perfection
In an extravagant or time-bending day, where would ou be, what would you be doing, whom would you be with, what would you be eating, how would you be earning, helping, creating, living, loving in a span of twelve hours?

The whole point of this exercise is to actually create those ideal twelve hours -- or as close to it, even if it's just fifteen minutes, as frequently as possible until that idealism is the fabric of your everyday reality and lifestyle. Day to day makes up a lifetime.
