Notice when we intentionally attach to a word or thing or idea, it shows up everywhere. Say we are focused on butterflies. Wherever we look, we notice butterflies. Our eyes are directed towards them.
We can use that same technique in goal planning. Because we intentionally set a goal, we tell our thoughts it is something of value. Once we aim for it, we fixate on it. Then our brain helps us find associations with it by sending out signals, searching for a match and trying to make a connection.
Let us embrace the mystery of our mind and use it today.
