How The Power Of A Single
Change Your Life
by Laura Day
To start this new year off on the
right track I’d like to invite you to make one single
wish, the one change you want more than anything else in
the world. You can make others after this one comes
true. Your wish can be anything, "realistic"
or not, as long as it is the one thing that you hunger
for when you wake up and go to sleep yearning. Perhaps
that wish is for that thing that you envy in others.
Make your wish and write it down before you read the
rest of this article. Keep this wish in your heart as
you read on. We will work more on it later. You are
going to use your own inner resources in The Circle to
grant yourself this wish.
How many times have you started diets over the
holidays or greeted the first of the year with an
overwhelming exercise program and a list of New Years
resolutions. Huge, seismic, self imposed (mostly
punishing) changes rarely work. They overwhelm too many
different parts of us. These solutions deny the hunger
and need, the insecurities and experiences that created
the problem in the first place. If we could truly change
our lives this way we’d all be thin, nonsmoking,
vegetarians working from home making enough to donate
large sums of money to our favorite causes while being
able to afford all the organic produce we could eat!
The conceit of the "thinking" mind assumes
that we can overcome years of programming, subdue our
conflicting subconscious desires and the patterns we
have created in ourselves and our world, by simply
deciding. As a human being you are composed of many
parts, intellect, intuition, the subconscious to name a
few. We create our outer world and our experience of it,
through these energies and perceptions. In a sense, we
each live in our own world. The miracle of creation is
that you can change your world by making subtle, organic
changes in yourself.
Think back to the first time you fell in love.
Remember the first time you found a mentor, a passion, a
perfect job, friend, sport or hobby. Your life changed
miraculously in that instant. And yet notice that the
transformation was probably not a result of perfect
planning, hard work, punishing exercise or self control.
The change was simply a miraculous coincidence, an
apparent accident of timing and opportunity. All that
came before the change in your life was transformed in
that synchronistic moment. Though it may have seemed to
be the result of "luck," you created that
metamorphosis by subtle shifts within you.
These subtle internal shifts induced external shifts
in others and the world around you, paving the way for
the synchronistic moment or series of evens that
permitted your "miracle" to become real.
A circle is the most energy-efficient geometric form.
All of life, from our cells to our planet, strive for
the form of The Circle. A Circle occurs when all energy,
within us and around us, is working together in perfect
creative harmony, to form a life-giving pattern. The
virtually limitless energy of The Circle is available to
us all. It is available to you, right now. In those
moments of "luck" or "miracles" you
have stumbled into this energy unknowingly.
The nine elements of The
Circle: How The Power of a Single Wish Can Change Your
Life allow you to access and
direct these "miracles" consciously and
I stumbled into The Circle in the very darkest moment
of my life. Almost everything I loved and valued, all my
support, even my beliefs were lost. As with trauma, one
followed another until I did not recognize myself or the
world and people around me. I remember the moment that I
realized that I could fight no longer. I was out of
resources, energy, ideas, plans, hope, belief. I let go.
My total being was distilled to a single wish, one that
seemed impossible to attain. I lived that wish. Within
three weeks, my wish had come true and a new life, a
wonderful life built itself around me. In documenting
the elements of this experience, and using the elements
with thousands of people and companies to create desired
change The Circle revealed itself to me.
Even though I have been aware of my intuitive and
healing abilities since I was very young, in moments of
difficulty I would seek others out to answer the
question "What is wrong with me?", "How
can I heal?, What is going to happen?", "Are
my dreams going to come true?". Not until I was
forced by circumstance did I stop trying to fix what was
wrong with me and rather use what was right in me that I
realized that I could create the changes I wanted in
myself and my life.
I am not unique. I have spent my career showing
people that each of us is intuitive, a healer and a
creator (whether we "believe" in this
"stuff" or not!). What makes us powerful is
our awareness of these gifts of self and our ability to
direct our energy in the world around us.
So let us begin, you and I, this new year, together,
in The Circle. If you simply put one foot in front of
the other in The Circle, you will end up where you want
to be and, more importantly, who you want to be!
Refer back to your opening wish. Pretend that your
wish has come true. Feel your "New Reality,"
taste it, smell it, see it, think it, remember it, hear
it. Experience and embrace your wish with all of your
senses. Notice how life has changed around you in this
"New Reality." Notice how you have changed.
As you embrace and embody your wish with all of your
being your perceptions will change from moment to
moment. You will notice barriers, judgments, memories
and feelings. Do not be troubled. This is your
subconscious emptying itself of all that gets in your
way. Simply notice if something troubling comes up and
let it go. If something troubling comes up again in the
future discuss it with someone, ask someone to do a
reading on it, a healing, do a drawing, dance it, work
it through this issue in whatever way feels best to you.
As you embrace and embody your wish with all of your
being notice that your New Reality has already happened
and allow yourself the awareness that you are made of
atoms of energy, each atom having a program now changed
by your New Reality. Notice that not only are you made
up of atoms of energy but also that everything in the
room, your life, the world, the universe, is made up of
this energy as well. Notice that as you change the
program of your energy, all the patterns of energy,
people and events change around you as well. As you
change, you create a new world around you.
You have just completed the first two of the nine
elements of The Circle needed to create your wish as
reality. Conscious Creation and Embodiment. You should
soon notice that even having just begun the process,
meaningful coincidences will begin to occur. You will
begin to both embody and experience in your world pieces
of your New Reality. It will give you a glimpse of your
own ability to create and recreate this New Year.
I Join you in The Circle,
