How Would You Feel If…?

The essay you are about to read was inspired by an idea clarified within Katherine Jegede’s “Infinite Possibilities.”

Directly inspired.

So, with that in mind, let’s dive into the idea that Katherine Jegede has given us.

A Simple Question

Right now, you want something.

Or, at least, that’s my assumption.

Just think about what you want, for a moment or two.

And, right after you do so, ask yourself a question.

“How would I feel, if my desire were a fact?”

Or, perhaps, “How would I feel right now, if I was…?”

There are infinite variations.

Just ask the question.

Give Yourself Space

Right after you ask the question outlined in the previous section, you must give yourself space.

Space for what?

Space for the feelings that your wish arouses to be enjoyed.

Just as an example, if you ask about a new job, you can allow yourself to enjoy that job, to enjoy the peace and pleasure and sense of satisfaction that it evokes.

The same applies to any other desire.

If you do this often enough, your wish will feel natural, lovely, and inevitable.

Or, even — and, this really is better — present.

Your wish will feel present, within your life. And, when it does, you will reach your intended destination.

A Few More Possibilities

You can ask, and explore, the question we outlined earlier.

But, you can also pair it with other activities.

If you want to, you can appreciate specific elements of your wish, and its fulfillment, while asking this question.

Or, you can imagine a scene that implies the fulfillment of your wish.

And so on and so forth, endlessly and infinitely; ad infintum.

The possibilities are vast and infinite.

Conclusion

You can live the life that you dream of.

And, you can do so, using simple methods.

My hope is that this essay — and the simple method it contains — helps bring you where you want to be.

No matter what, though, thank you so much for reading!
