I was asked about deliberate creation, from http://justmeandyoukid.com/: I still don’t understand deliberate creation. How do you deliberately create a great day? Is it a self-mantra that you repeat, an attitude? How does this happen for you?
I am thankful for the questions above because we will answer each of them this week as we delve into what deliberately creating our life is all about.
The answer is when we make a conscious decision to deliberately create our thoughts and our lives, everything changes from that moment forward. The Universe conspires to bring forth your desire. Things will begin to shift to bring you closer to what you desire.
To deliberately create is to decide and to say to yourself what it is you wish to create (and to believe, have faith that it will be done). You can affirm aloud or to yourself. You can write in a journal or paint it in a picture. You can create a dream board or daydream. All of these are modalities in deliberately creating what you want.
The key is to be honest with yourself about your life’s desires and values and stay focused on them. This way, you are not wasting time creating a mish mash of what you do and don’t want.
We can haphazardly create our lives, with no focus. We all know what our lives look like without deliberately thinking about what we want to create.
Think of a business plan, as compared to deliberately creating. You can write a business plan, but do you do not know all the specific results that will come of it, nor can you anticipate all that may come up. You know generally that your business plan will garner certain results, as opposed to not having a business plan at all. The same with an outline for a novel or an actual outline of drawing. You know generally what is being created because you’ve created the outline. Now, picture your drawn outline image, and God coming in to fill in the colors and depths of that image. That is how deliberate creation works.
You are creating the outline, which is the what and why, and God is filling it up with the who, when, where and how. Always remember your role and part in deliberate creating. Your job is to deliberately create what you want, remain in a place of allowing and gratitude, remain faithful and then to be thankful when you’ve manifested what you want.
Your unique desires are direct expressions of God Spirit, so of course God says “Yes” when you ask and affirm what you wish to create.
Deliberate creation and allowing work hand in hand. When you deliberately create (your business plan or novel outline), information is sent out to the Universe to bring forth what you desire back to you. When you allow the fruits of that creative thought to come back, the easier it is to manifest what you want. Sometimes the fruits do not look like what you wanted to bear from your deliberate thoughts. But, always remember there are different vantage points to things and situations, and the blessing is always there, just not yet revealed to you in a way you can comprehend or see yet.
It is important to think about your values and desires for your life, and listen to your intuition. Your intuition will guide and tell you when you are hitting resistance or when you are flowing with Divine Spirit.
I will leave you with a list of my own affirmations that I said this week and last, so you can see the modality of affirmations in play in deliberate creation. Borrow or create your own and say them regularly.
- I am an extension of God.
- For in Him, I live, and move, and have my being.
- I am abundant.
- I am well, whole, perfect and complete.
- I am love.
- I am peace.
- I am free.
- I am creative.
- I am a friend.
- I am triumphant in everything I do, no matter the outcome.

Kimberley, I really like this part, “Now, picture your drawn outline image, and God coming in to fill in the colors and depths of that image” The idea of allowing God to take care of the details of your life is an important reminder to allow co-creation in life. Hey I thought I might add an idea too. For your original inquiry, “How do you deliberately create a great day?” I would add, think of any way you can help someone else have a great day-go out and do it and you will share that experience-as we are all connected, the more you make your life about creating great days, the more your days will naturally become great. For whatever you want. Create it for anyone and you will reap the benefits as well. It will make you feel great to be that kind of person.
Hi Tracy~ Thank you so much for taking the time to add that important piece – it really is like building blocks when we are creating each day. Each great day builds upon the next one, and over time, there is momentum in the direction of good days. I imagine over time, even through a few bumps in the road, one could better handle them because of their positive experiences they’ve created to sustain them through the rough times. When we help someone else have a great day consistently, the cycle is full circle – we feel good and the person we’ve helped feels good and will likely pay it forward to the next. Last Saturday, I spent some time with a friend who had surgery, and although she had physical pain, we didn’t really notice because we were laughing and connecting. By the end of our visit, I could tell she was just a little bit stronger and in fact, I was, too. Thank you, thank you for stopping by and adding to this post. ~Kim
You’re welcome. Great insight on the momentum piece. I think you’re right on. The momentum is like building a weird kind of spiritual muscle memory that helps us remember to use the tools of trust, graitude and awareness when things get tough. Thanks for that reminder of how it works.
