Cosmic ordering can be a powerful force for good when used correctly.
Much like the law of attraction, you can leverage it to bring you positivity and bring you closer to whatever it is you desire.
You can also use it alongside the law of attraction for potentially greater results.
As you’ll soon discover, positive energy is at the heart of cosmic ordering and is essential to getting you where you want to go.
Before we move on and get into how exactly you can do cosmic ordering, let’s start with the basics.
What is Cosmic Ordering?
Cosmic ordering, which bears some resemblance to the law of attraction, is likewise a form of positive thinking.
To give some background, the phrase was first coined by Bärbel Mohr, a German bestselling author who wrote several books on the topic.
Mohr’s standout book was called The Cosmic Ordering Service. You can check it out on Amazon here. The outstanding success of the book led to it being a bestseller and being translated into many languages.
After writing this book, Mohr went on to give lectures and teachings on how to use cosmic ordering in your life to live a more fulfilling life.
As for the practice, cosmic ordering draws comparisons with a Christmas wish list, except sending your wishes out into the universe instead of Santa.
Mohr believed that if we were to write down a list of wishes, we could wait and then eventually see them play out in reality.
Many people claim to have used this technique with great success, and just like the law of attraction, this form of attraction is a way of putting positive intentions out into the world.
Even if you don’t receive the results you were hoping for, you will hone your sense of presence and focus.
So if you give it a go, you’ve really got nothing to lose!
Here’s How To Do Cosmic Ordering In 4 Steps.
Step 1: Be Present
As is typically the case with positive thinking, in order to yield the results that you seek, you need to be at one with the universe.
Put simply, this means you need to be present with your surroundings.
Take the time to breathe and steep yourself in the energy of the present moment before attempting to write your cosmic ordering list.
By applying mindfulness, you are allowing your mind to focus in on what is important, rather than the negative cyclical thought patterns that we often tend to fall victim of.
Cosmic ordering works on the premise that you are giving out positive thoughts and energy into the universe, and the best way you can do that is by taking the time to be present in yourself.
After all, you can’t expect to resonate with the energy of the universe if you aren’t mindful enough in the moment to notice it all around you.
Let’s take a quick look at some of the ways you can practice being present, to better prepare yourself for cosmic ordering.
● Start small
These days, mindfulness is everywhere. Even though it’s losing some of the stigma of being only for monks and people with a love of discipline and religion, it can still seem hard to reach.
With that in mind, forget the 1-hour meditation sessions and week-long retreats which might have you reeling at the prospect, and instead opt for the easier option.
I personally enjoy to incorporate mindfulness into my daily life, and into the actions I am already taking.
Whether it’s taking a deep breath with your morning coffee, or taking a moment while you are walking to truly observe your surroundings, it all counts.
A minute of meditation here, some mindful eating there, and before you know it you will start to feel more connected to the world around you, and ultimately to the universe.
● Recognize negative thoughts
Negative thoughts spiral. Have you ever woken up in a bad mood and not shaken it until much later in the day?
There’s a reason for that. Left to its own devices, our mind loves to focus on the negative.
That’s why if we decide to adopt the principles of the law of attraction, and seek positivity instead, we can escape these negative thought patterns.
This is a challenging process though, so as a first step, try to recognize and label negative thoughts whenever they arise.
Say you step on some lego (the worst), and you immediately feel irritated, you can tell yourself that you feel irritated, and just by saying it alone you will feel some relief.
You will learn to realize that we have much more control over our minds than we are led to believe at times.
The more you label and ultimately avoid these negative thoughts, the abler you’ll be to enter a healthy mind space which is necessary for cosmic ordering to work for you.
Step 2: Direct Your Focus
At the beginning of this article, I used the analogy of a Christmas list to explain the process of cosmic ordering.
While this helps to understand it quickly, the main difference between the two (aside from Santa) is that in a Christmas list you want to write down everything you desire.
With cosmic ordering, however, you ideally only want to focus on one thing.
That is to say, it will serve you to think about your most compelling desire so that your focus isn’t diluted.
It’s a good practice for us to be able to identify just one thing that we want, since that way we are able to dedicate all of our energy towards it.
Just like the myth of multitasking, by splitting your focus with cosmic ordering, you will essentially be sending out mixed messages into the universe.
Right now, in this very moment, I ask you to think about what means the most to you and what would bring you the greatest sense of fulfillment in your life.
For example, if what I most desire is to discover an opportunity in alignment with my purpose in life, then that is what I should write down.
That way, when the opportunity does come along, I will notice it and be ready to seize it with both hands and not let it pass by.
Step 3: Harness The Power Of Visualization
You have probably heard of visualization being used to achieve all kinds of incredible feats.
A football player visualizing themselves scoring the winning goal in the World Cup final. A violinist visualizing their concert before getting up on stage. An entrepreneur visualising their dream job and working towards it.
It has been well documented how useful visualization can be to achieving goals.
The more vividly you visualize what it is that you want in life, the easier it will come to you.
If you have a muddy, watered-down vision of what love is for you, for example, how can you expect to find it, or how will you know when you do?
Just like being present, for cosmic ordering to be a powerful force of positivity in your life, you will benefit from practicing visualization at every opportunity.
In order to create the right visualization practice, there’s a couple of things you need to know how to do.
● Create the right atmosphere
While sitting in a quiet room may be the perfect conditions for you to visualize, for many it isn’t.
You’ll have to use trial and error to see what works best for you. Maybe that means getting some pleasantly scented candles and putting on some relaxing music. Maybe it means sitting on the floor or on the sofa.
Whatever puts you in a calm, relaxed state is your best bet. In order to visualize, you’re going to want to clear your mind as best you can.
Starting with meditation practice is a great way to quiet the racing thoughts in your mind.
Once you feel nice and relaxed, begin to imagine and truly see what it is that you want.
● Use your senses
When you’re imagining your desire, make full use of your senses to make it feel as close to reality as possible.
If my main desire is to work remotely from a tropical island for example, then I’m not just going to picture it.
I’m going to smell the coconut trees, hear the waves gently breaking on the shore and breathe in that fresh, tropical air.
By bringing in as many senses as possible, you will be amazed at how clear your desire now seems.
What was originally a hazy idea of a desire can become a fully-fleshed out, wonderful vivid film playing in your mind.
Step 4: Write Down Your Desire
Now that you’ve worked hard on creating the right mindset and you’ve visualized your desire, it’s time to get it down on paper.
While this step seems the easiest of all, there’s more to it than just writing a sentence detailing your dream or desire.
As we touched upon in the previous step, the more you put into your desire, the more you will get out of it.
Replacing senses with words, we are going to be as descriptive as possible when we write down our desire.
Ideally, you will do this step immediately after your visualization session. That way, you will still have your desire clear as day in your mind.
Now it’s just a case of using your words to do this visualization justice.
I recommend that you address the letter to the universe, to remind yourself of where you are sending this positive energy.
Once you’ve finished writing your letter, you have a few options.
You can either address it to yourself, to show that you are making a commitment to give out positive energy.
You can burn it if you enjoy the symbolic show of melting into the universe.
Or you can keep it somewhere you can see it act as a form of daily affirmation that you can read aloud every day to maintain your focus.
It’s important not to see the whole process of cosmic ordering as a one-time thing, but rather, you should try to see it as a rewarding journey that will bring you closer to the positive energy you seek.
