Why You Should Write a Future Letter at the New Year

Don’t you love a fresh start?

Most of us move forward haphazardly in life and see where it takes us. This underutilizes your most powerful superpower, your brain. Did you know your brain is this insanely efficient computer that will try to answer any question you ask it?

Always be sure to ask clear questions whose answer will propel you toward an answer that actually helps you get to where you want to go. Writing a Future Letter starts to create clarity so you can put your brain to work.

If you know what you want and you are intentional, then you can start to manifest everything your heart desires and more. One of my favorite tools to do this with is writing a Future Letter.

What’s a Future Letter you say?

It’s a letter to The Powers That Be as if it was already a year later thanking them for the wonderfulness of the previous year. Some people address theirs to The Universe, God, or even just their future selves.

Sort of like one of those holiday letters you get from friends and family telling you about their year in great detail.

I like to do mine at the beginning of the New Year. I’m already mulling over what will go in mine. Probably a lot about my business, trips, love and health. Anything and everything described with great nitty gritty detail.

I love starting the year out with such gratitude and clear intentions. It almost feels like I wrote the script for my year and it’s just a matter of allowing it to unfold.

When you’re done writing it all down tuck it away somewhere safe. You can read it again next year and see what came true, what’s still brewing, and what you don’t want anymore.

You’ll get a sense of what feels important to you. Then you can start goal setting and create an action plan with By When Dates.

How To:

If your current year is 2017, date your Future Letter 2018. This coming New Year mine will look like this:


January 1, 2018

Dear Universe,

I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of heart for all the miracles that happened this year. I got exactly what I needed and life has never been better etc…

With love, gratitude and an open heart,

Carmen xo
