When the world is filled with uncertainty and it seems like the dark and negative are everywhere, your dreams and visions for yourself have the incredible ability to change not only your world, but also the world.
By spending time dreaming and imagining a fabulous future, you raise your vibration and in doing so, bring more light and joy into the world.
So as an antidote to chaos and worry, let’s spend some time imagining and creating this week…
What are those big dreams you have? Not necessarily even specifics- what do you want to experience or feel? Maybe it’s freedom or adventure; maybe family is your priority or changing the world through your ingenuity.
If you have specific dreams, what do you think they’ll bring you? What’s the energy under the dream? For example- let’s say you have big visions for your business. What will the manifestation of those things bring to you? Again, maybe it’s freedom, or maybe it’s empowerment, maybe you want a sense of accomplishment or you desire to give back. What is the feeling of the end goal coming to fruition?
Once you identify the feeling(s), sit in that feeling. Feel it, right here, right now. If it’s i.e. freedom, where do you feel it in your body? How does it make you feel to experience that?
Don’t wait for the goal to manifest to give yourself that energy, start doing it daily now. Being in the energy of the goal will more easily pull the manifestation of it towards you.
Now let’s look at bigger picture energies. Ask yourself, what is it that I truly feel will help me to experience more happiness and joy in my life? Then close your eyes and connect deeply to yourself. Allow whatever images, feelings, or thoughts that appear, no matter how seemingly random; just see what pops up. Maybe it’ll be a memory, maybe a future vision. What comes to you?
Let’s go deeper, back to bigger dreams: what do you want for yourself? Not what you think you should want- what do you want for you??
Now if nothing comes, don’t panic. You may have been conditioned to live your life for others or to follow certain life guidelines, so it might take time to connect in authentically with yourself.
For example, because I know many of you deal with this one: just because everyone tells you that you have to get married in your 20s, have babies in your 20s or 30s, doesn’t mean that’s right for you. Maybe that’s not your path at all no matter how much your family or society pressures you. So again, what kind of life would make you happy?
Let’s daydream. Really let go. No boundaries. What sounds like a fun life? No limits. If you could do anything, be anything and go anywhere, what would you do/be?
Again, pay attention to what emerges and do not dismiss anything. Everything you fantasize about is a clue to where your Soul is calling you. Don’t dismiss that nagging desire to take a cooking class, or learn to play piano, maybe you want to live in a foreign city for 6 months- whatever is calling you is where there is tremendous possibility for growth and soul evolution so listen to those desires.
What’s one thing you keep dismissing that sounds interesting to you? Can you give yourself that by taking action? Start slowly and commit to pursuing something that, for no other reason than that you desire it, you pursue it. Even if it has no intrinsic value (by other people’s standards), it will be life altering; even something so seemingly simple as taking a pottery class. Everything has value when you feel a pull to explore it.
I lived in Paris for 4 months in college- why, because I wanted to. I had no interest in school or it furthering any educational purposes; I wanted the life experience of living there. Ironically I almost failed my French class while I was there (I got a D), but I didn’t care- I lived in Paris! I wanted to feel Parisian for 4 months. I wanted the adventure and joy. I wanted it with every part of me. And I’m so grateful I gave that to myself.
So this week, dream new dreams or augment the ones you already know: both big and small ones. Get into the feeling of having them manifest now. Let them fill you with joy. And then take an action to bring them into your reality.
Remember, when people are on their deathbeds, it’s the regrets of what they didn’t do that haunt them. Build a life you can be proud of and in the process, you heal the world.
Me, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
