What happened to the dreams you had as a child ?
My childhood fantasy was to become Solitaire the Clairvoyant from the James Bond Movie, Live & Let Die. Unfortunately that position has already been filled by the fabulous Jane Seymour. I have, however, achieved many of my dreams including designing my own Tarot deck & traveling (and living), around the globe, experiencing many different cultures.
How can you reach for your dream ?
From song lyrics to motivational speakers, it seems everyone these days is telling you to follow your dream, because as the song goes, “You got to have a dream/ If you don’t have a dream/ How you gonna have a dream come true?” But if you’re not sure what your dream is, how can you bring it to light? Here are three simple tips to making it happen:
Give yourself permission to dream again …
When you were a child, you had dreams. Big, fantastic, impossible dreams. Somewhere along the way, you probably got sick of hearing about just how impossible and improbable those dreams were, and in the process of growing up, you got more realistic about the future. You let your dreams die, once you realized how unlikely they were to ever become reality. When people laughed at your for sharing your dreams, you probably felt foolish, and decided to keep them to yourself.
But just because you tucked your dreams away for safe keeping, doesn’t mean they’re not still there. Your dreams may have changed, or you may still want the same things you did when you were a kid, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that you give yourself permission to hold onto your dreams, whether you share them or not.
To bring your dream back to life and into the light, as yourself what you would do with your life if money and time were no object; what you would do if failure were not possible? As you start to imagine your dream life, your adult brain will try to impose limitations, put objections, practical issues, in the way. Remind yourself this is only a dream, and practicalities are not important. It’s OK to start with small dreams, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll start to unleash your imagination, and those dreams will grow again.
There’s no such thing as a ‘bad’ dream …
Your dream doesn’t have to suit everyone, it doesn’t have to measure up to other people’s dreams, and no one can take it away from you, so relax and don’t judge your dreams. As another saying goes, “the heart wants what the heart wants.”
It’s not healthy to dream about world domination or something that directly hurts another person, the Universe will automatically negate this. You’ll probably find if you investigate the motivation for any apparently unhealthy dreams like this, it’s not about someone else feeling bad, but about you feeling good. With a bit more time, and a bit more practice unleashing your imagination, you can probably see a way to get what you really want without hurting others. By the way the number 1 dream I deal with on a daily basis is “I want to win the lottery. Believe it or not I have known lottery big winners, I can honestly say that winning the lottery can be a double edged sword.
Give your dreams time …
If your dreams don’t spring to life fully formed in glorious Technicolor the first time you try to conjure them up, don’t panic. Give it time, and cultivate patience. It took years to squash your dreaming habit, it may take a few weeks or months to resuscitate it. While some people know what they want out of life early on, for others it may take years to have an experience that sparks their inner fire. It may be you just haven’t been exposed to your dream experience yet. So just remain open to new things, and trust that someday soon your imagination will catch fire and you will find your dream.
Many people find that by sending their dreams & wishes to the Universe via my online wishing well or my Cosmic ordering service, their dreams become lodged in their subconscious & slowly bubble away in the back of their mind. I truly believe that your subconscious will strive to manifest everything you desire, so get dreaming again now !
I truly hope you manifest everything you wish for xxx Paul xxx
