What do we want in life?
When we think about what we want in life, we often talk about it, but never really believe in our hearts that we can actually have it. Here in this seminar Patti Dobrowolski takes you through a process by drawing that will allow your mind to create on paper what you really want. The human mind is a powerful thing and half the battle is tricking your brain and convincing it that what you want is real. You can use this process if you want to run your own business, go travelling or have a life that is less stressful and fulfilling. Oxytocin and serotonin is released in the body when we draw and dream, and this also makes us feel happy and creative. We spend too much time in life thinking about and talking about what we don’t want and getting it, then focusing on what we do want. Being creative is a good way to express how you feel and draw images that reflect this. We have all heard of the placebo effect, whereby you give someone a tablet that they think is a drug, when in fact it is nothing more than just plain old powder, but because their mind thinks its real, they start to have lots of different sensations, feeling sick, dizzy, numbness, so if we can create this which is unreal, then we can create a life that is real and one that gives us what we most desire.
To do this just follow the 3 step process:
- See it
- Act on it
So if a new life is what you want, then give it a go and see where it takes you.
