“I just SAW my project as A big chocolate chip cookie! It was real and sweet” ~ Anna, Gilbert, AZ

This is a “first-thought = best thought” exercise, and so there’s no right or wrong way to do it so just stay loose and let the answers to the questions bubble up from the bottom of your belly.

I know some people have a hard time “visualizing,” and if you are one of those people, no worries – just see if these questions spark anything for you.

Step One: Plug In To Your Intuition

First, get into a comfortable position and take a few deep breaths to clear your mind and plug in to your intuition.

Once you are feeling focused and relaxed, allow an image of your project to appear in your mind.

This image might be sort of abstract, or perhaps it’s literal, or maybe some of both. Whatever jumps to mind first is perfect, even if it seems a little weird.

Step Two: Noticing Your Project’s Unique Image

Holding this image of your project in your mind’s eye, ask yourself the following questions:

  • What does your project look like?

  • Does it have a shape? A color?

  • Is it shiny? Dull? Sharp-edged? Soft?

  • Reach out and touch it – what happens?

  • Does it glow? Does it move when you touch it? Does it bend?

  • Notice some of the special details – whatever it does or doesn’t do.

Step Three: What Does Your Project Want To Tell You?

Now listen carefully – does your project have anything to say to you?  Let it speak.  Don’t argue – just listen.


When you’re ready, take another deep breath to ground yourself again, and make some notes about what you noticed.

Share below what your project told you. I would love to know!

Whatever you learned today about your project, I hope it’s information that will move you forward -
