“It’s alive!!”—My new tip for making beautiful things happen
“Be wide open and ready.”—Patch Adams
Years ago when I wrote an article on Providencia for the Washington Post, I was torn. This little island off the coast of Colombia was unknown and so pristine that the airport (or rather the little strip that served as the airport) greeted guests with “Welcome” written out in conch shells.
It was like the Caribbean before it became THE Caribbean. Publicizing it, I worried, might garner crowds and detract from its charm.
That’s how I feel about this manifesting tip I’m about to share.
Last New Year’s Eve, while visiting my sister in Savannah, Georgia, I plucked a stick from the beach at Tybee Island and wrote in big four-foot letters, “E-Squared will become a huge international sensation.” I let the waves take it out into the world.
Admittedly, not a marketing strategy covered in most college textbooks.
But it worked so well that last month, when visiting Anna Maria Island, I decided to take another stick and write, “Oprah invites me to talk about E-Squared on Super Soul Sunday.”
Last week, her producers called my publicist asking for video.
So while I still write daily in my journal, you can bet that when I’m in Carlsbad next month visiting Hay House, I’ll be affirming something new into the beach.
