"The Tibetans have a tradition of using prayer flags. A breeze blowing past a prayer flag is believed to take the prayer inscribed on the fabric with it to the spirit realm. I suggested to my friends that they write out their goals on paper and attach them to the prayer flag as a primitive way to make their desires known to the gods. Because the subconscious mind relates more strongly to images than to words. I encouraged them to supplement their written words with photos from magazines and drawn designs of themselves enjoying their desired reality."
