Daily Guide to Life Design #5: Decide What to Believe, Then Look for Evidence

A few weeks ago, Kelly told me she wanted to write a story about growing teeth back. "Neat. But... whatever," I thought. I didn't believe in no stinkin' teeth growing back. But wouldn't it be nice?

A few days later she stumbled across an article linking tooth regeneration to nutrition. It might not have been the most reputable source, but holy crap! Tooth regeneration!

Then a couple days ago I discovered the idea of "oil pulling," where you swish coconut oil around in your mouth for 20 minutes a day. The antibacterial oil pulls toxins from your teeth and may even heal cavities. I shared the article on Facebook and lo and behold, I already had friends trying the practice!

Today a friend encouraged me to try the oil pulling myself. I did so begrudgingly, but it really wasn't that gross. I don't have any cavities, but I sure want to keep it that way.

To recap: in less than a month, Kelly and I went from wanting to believe in tooth regeneration, to seeing evidence of it everywhere, to finding ways to test the theory ourselves.

What do you want to believe? Make your list and let the universe provide the evidence! Start looking for the TINIEST speck of proof that your belief is true, and you'll start a snowball of indicators that will eventually result in your belief becoming truth.
