The last year or so, I've taken to saying this with as much fervor as I can muster when I wake up. It's a line from the poem" Song at Daybreak," by Jessica Powers.
It helps me be hopeful. Beyond that, it helps me tap into the infinite Realm of Potential.
The Realm (or Field) of Potential is the plane, for lack of a better word, in which all potentials exist. Everything that can be exists there, in some form, waiting to be brought into physical existence.
Is the Realm of Potential "real"? I don't know. I suspect something like this exists, but even if it doesn't it's a useful concept. It reminds me that anything is possible, and for a powerful moment or two, it takes me out of the thought-based approach of looking at likelihood.
That's important, because when our thoughts tell us something isn't likely, it sets up barriers to that thing coming into being. It acts like a pair of glasses that filters out the pathway toward that thing or event coming into being.
So when I embrace the line "Come down to me, my beautiful unknown," I'm allowing the words to immerse me in the glow of the infinite Field of Potential. It's a great way to go into the day.

higher it goes. With your awareness, travel up this gridwork, leaving
the earth plane and entering the realm of Source Energy, where the Field
of Infinite Potential is.
In this realm, see yourself meeting with
the as-yet unmanifested energy of what you want to bring into being. Use
your imagination to experience it in detail. In your third eye, picture
it, smell it, hear it--as intensely as you can. Make it even more
beautiful, more full of light and good.
Now turn it into a symbol if that feels right.

able to interact with you. Engage with it in whatever way feels right

Now let the energy of what you want change into pure particles
