I bring my awareness to my heart and resonate with its love.
Naturally and easily my heart-love radiates through me.
Love is present now—rippling in to the future, releasing the past.

The movie the Odd Life of Timothy Green came out in 2012. It’s about a couple who can’t have children, so they accidentally “wish” for one, burying a small box in the backyard which contains every attribute they want in their child written down in it—everything they could wish for. A boy suddenly shows up who exhibits everything they wrote down! Their every wish come true!
The movie is about fulfillment and loss, with one lesson in “be careful what you wish for”.
There is a lot of talk these days about the energy of attraction, magnetizing, manifesting, and generally using energy to get what you want. I’m in. I like figuring this stuff out as much as the next person.
But, I don’t see a lot about the caveat “be careful what you wish for”. It almost seems like quite the opposite, as though people think when they learn this attraction-magnetizing stuff all their problems will be solved and they can have whatever they want. Maybe that is right and I just haven’t figured it out yet. But, maybe there’s more to it.
Here’s what I mean. Let’s say for example someone says, “I want to be a millionaire by the time I’m 30”. This person then proceeds to work 80 hours a week, sucking up to anyone who they think will give them tips (monetary or intellectual) or money, and treating anyone else as inferior. The work hours take their toll on this person’s health, and they certainly don’t have time for friends or a meaningful relationship. They’ve made their first million by age 30…but at what cost?
I have no doubt that we can manifest what we put our minds to. I just think it’s important to think about implications and consequences, for ourselves and others, as we do.
It’s a really good reason to use the phrase, “with free will and for the highest good of all”.
This is a protection phrase. When you add it to your “I want” statement, it assures you nothing is going to come back to harm you or others (not “bite you in the ass”, in other words). It protects you from yourself and protects others from any action you may take through ignorance or thoughtlessness in your pursuit of getting what you want.
If I have to hurt anyone to get what I want, why would I want it anyway? There’s already too much of that in the world.
We are setting the stage for ourselves to move forward in this year of Journeys. The heart always wants the highest good for all. The heart always wants your-my-our highest good. In the heart, this is natural; in the head, we have to use the words, literally to think it as a tag line so that our minds get on board with what is already natural for our hearts: With free will and for the highest good of all.
