When communicating with the Universe, is it appropriate to use sticky notes?

I have bought into the Law of Attraction. Your thoughts will manifest your destiny. You will bring about the exact outcome that you expect to receive. If you have a pessimistic attitude, problems and obstacles will find their way to you. If you see your glass as half full—or as I like to think of it, always full enough—then the moons and stars will align in your favor.

I can honestly say that I am happy the vast majority of the time. There are people in my life who have told me they have sympathy for me… because I’m not married. My reaction is to look at them like they have two heads. Why on earth would you be sad for me?? I’m happy every day. And I’ve managed not to marry the wrong man while I wait for the man who’s perfect for me. Meanwhile, countless others are brushing their misery under the rug because they can’t relate to, communicate with, understand, or even make themselves like their spouse. My goodness. I’d so much rather be standing in my shoes. The man I marry will be fantastic and so worth the wait, so I don’t mind a bit.

In the meantime, I’ll continue communicating with the Universe, which is an art that I’m still trying to master. Without knowing it, I began doing it as a child. My vivid imagination pictured scenarios that would ultimately play out. I imagined myself throwing strikes in my little league games. I visualized good report cards. I pictured myself delivering a flawless performance in piano recitals and in high school, flawless speeches in debate tournaments. (You didn’t know I was so nerdy, did you?) I imagined myself going away to college… and being accepted into grad school. I imagined myself as a woman who walked into a high-rise office in heels every day, although I had no idea what people did once inside those buildings. I just knew I wanted to be there. And so it came to be.

Now that I recognize the power we all hold to determine our own futures, I am starting to play with it a little. Starting to be more specific. A couple years ago, a cousin of mine told me that she wrote down a dollar figure on a piece of paper once—the salary she wanted to make the following year. It was far-fetched given what she currently made, but she had faith. And lo and behold, the following year she filed taxes for slightly more than the amount on her piece of paper.

This morning I decided that I wanted to ask the Universe for a few specific things. One involves my career and a certain type of opportunity that I would like to be given this coming year. The other involves personal growth. I grow every time I travel and there are certain parts of the world that I haven’t seen yet. Certain traits of certain cultures that I would like to understand and adopt. And so I decided to write them down and carry them with me—both the career opportunity and the travel destination—so that I would not forget my goals and the Universe would not misinterpret them.

I pulled out the nearest small piece of paper I could write on, out of habit. And then I stopped and stared at it. It was a pink sticky note. Hmm. I wonder…

When communicating with the Universe, is it appropriate to use sticky notes?

    The universe, it would seem, is not without a sense of humor… or a sense of irony, for that matter.

    If the universe is pals with planet Earth, then I’m sure it appreciates ecologically friendly choices such as smaller pieces of paper =)

    There is a great deal of scripture that deals with the power of the spoken word. In fact, the universe itself was created by the spoken word. I’d say that our words determine our future, to be sure, and the law of attraction is applicable on many levels.

    attract wisely.

    I have some thoughts on ‘attraction’ when it comes to whom we might marry (as I hope to be married one day, as well)… I think we have to first BE as awesome as that which we would hope from our counterpart…

    but for me, the higher I rise when it comes to personal excellence… the less prospects I find in such stratospheres. Thus, rather than have expectations of “fantastic” (of course, the root of that word is ‘fantasy’)… my expectations have adjusted into something more peaceful and viable…

    so that I might not spend the rest of my days searching for a woman who doesn’t exist, and that I may be a contented man, no matter the circumstance. I think this outlook facilitates the law of attraction.

    I think I also try to be personally powerful enough that my “needs” are easy to meet, and that I might have enough greatness to be more able to care for others, while not requiring too much care myself.

    Finally, I think it wise that we examine our motives, of WHY we want what we want… whether its money, or career… or a mate. Our motives are necessarily selfish… but when they are balanced with positive intent for others as well, then perhaps we will appreciate even more, when we see the results.

    good post, Pamela

    Well, you know my feelings about the law of attraction!! I really like your post – and of COURSE the universe responds to sticky notes! Don’t make yourself smaller than you are to fit with someone who is smaller than you want them to be… or smaller than you really are on the inside, because then you will attract an imbalance. If you are huge and awesome, you will attract the like if that is what you want (case in point, my totally awesome, larger than life, amazingly powerful husband)!!! OK, I brag a little, but I waited a long time and kept my standards in an elevated stratus! And I could not be more grateful that I did.

    And remember how olympic athletes are taught to train… they imagine what they want, they try to FEEL it, think it, BE it. They train their minds as they train their bodies, and they have achieved world records doing so. They accomplished what no one thought possible. Amazing business men and greats minds alike do it. Einstein alludes to the power of imagination. So, ANYTHING is possible! If you want it, if you have the strength of character and the imagination and a practiced mind, the sky is the limit!
