So, pick a dream... any dream you've been thinking of lately, and hold onto it for a moment. Or start small, if you wish. You can imagine a phone call, a kiss, a flower, or a bubble bath.
Spend a couple moments now assigning 2 or 3 different mental images to your dream. Make them joyful, colorful, delicious, pleasantly scented, seriously...anything you want! Just make sure they're full of "you"! Now... take a few deep breaths, close your eyes if it helps, and then begin to visualize your picture sequence.
Energize It with Emotion!
Take in some deep breaths. Pull up the images of your dream that you created above, then think of how you will feel when this dream is fulfilled: joyful, relieved, accomplished, perhaps? What will your body experience once your dream is fulfilled: relief, relaxation, health? What will your mind experience: assurance, stillness, contentment? What will your heart experience: peace, happiness, love? And what will your spirit experience: tranquility, connection, oneness? These thoughts energize your dream with emotion and will bring it to life. Creation of our dreams and desires takes having an awareness of what we DO want to occur. This is mindfulness in action! Spend time with the images of your desires and hold them steady in your mind. This will bring them about, and quick!
A release of your desire will help to bring it about more quickly. Prayer is the tool I use most often to release dreams and desires. Writing is also a wonderful tool for releasing.
1. you allow it and thereby hasten the manifestation
2. you doubt it, doubt yourself, doubt your worthiness, doubt the messenger, etc. and thereby slow down the manifestation
3. you deny it, and thereby push away your manifestation as if to almost stop it all together
No worries, though. All of these options are perfectly normal and we've all done all three of them throughout the course of our lives! If you find yourself doubting or denying, you can always stop and choose to allow in that moment. It's never too late to make a different choice and allow life to flow. What you want to begin developing here is an allowing spirit that is open to new experiences and opportunities. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately, depending on how you look at it), we cannot always create the exact way our dreams and desires will materialize. Hope, faith and trust are states of being that can help in developing a spirit that is open-minded and unlock the door to allowing the dreams you create into your life.
You Deserve It!
