Write Down What You Want

old desk
Gary tells us how powerful it is to write down what we want. His desire to homestead in Canada became a virtual blueprint the day he put it in writing.

You know, I started making paradigm shifts early in my life, although I didn’t realize that’s what I was doing. That happened because I changed my desire about life. And that desire was to be, first of all, different. What did that mean to me when I was 9 years old? I didn’t actually know. I just knew I didn’t want to be poor; I didn’t want to grow up like my father; and I didn’t want my children, when that time came, to grow up like I did.

One of the things I learned from this experience was to know what it is that you don’t want and to write it down. Know what it is you don’t want. I wrote down, when I was a young boy, what I didn’t want in life.

But I also wrote down what I did want. I remember back in 1963, 1964, writing down my desire to go to Canada to homestead and carve a ranch out of the wilderness—and I did it at the age of 18. Age has no bearing on ability. Age has never been a factor for me in doing something.

But so many times we get locked into a “Well, I’m not old enough” or “I’m too young” or “I’m too this” or “I’m too that” or “I’m a woman and I can’t do it” or “I’m a guy and I can’t be a salesman because I can’t bat my eyes just right.” It doesn’t matter what sex you are; it doesn’t matter where you are in life.

We all make excuses for not doing things, and we often don’t realize we’re making excuses. Sometimes, we spend more time justifying not doing something than if we just DID it!

  1. I am suffering with painful arthritis in my knees. Is there an essential oil that I can mix with Coconut Oil to rub into my knees to help with the pain? I would appreciate anyone who has an answer to this.
    Thank you.

  2. Thanks for this posting! What a brilliant reminder for the children of today! Yes, I agree for myself too, yet, what if I can encourage my boys to write down what they would ultimately love for their lives!!!!
    It seems that even with all of my “parental smarts” I may have shared some of my old thought patterns anyway. So giving them the power to shift and create for themselves now… life changing!
    add a little Believe Oil into the mix, oh yes, Legacy changing!!
    thank you~

  4. Hi, Gary,
    I’m excited for our East Coast friends that they will have the privilege of meeting my mentor and friend, whose work with essential oils has inspired me to re-create my life from the bottom up. Today, I am doing what I often do: writing down what I DO want, speaking it aloud, and placing my request/prayer under a lit candle – my way of notifying my God, the Universe and my Higher Self that I am ready to give what it takes to receive the blessings which are forthcoming from my intention.

    I have had the great good fortune of attending life-changing essential oils healing events with Gary Young.

    Those of us in the Northwest and people in other locations around the globe are sending prayers and blessings for all of you on the U.S. Atlantic seaboard. We share your intentions for healing in Abundance and Joy on this day and in the future. Godspeed.

  5. Dear Gary, my late sister Miyu served you as your interpreter when you visited Japan many years ago. I am using this channel to ask you for an information which could save my dear friend’s life.
    In fact, she suffers from an ovarian cyst but don’t want to go to hospital. She wants to try Frankincense. Question is how can she use this oil effectively to fight our this cyst. Twice a day application and drink as related in a testimonial?
    Thank you for your help.
