Recognize and Accept Dreams

Recognize And Accept Dreams

Recognize and accept dreams
because these are two important steps in success. You need your dreams to shoot for. You need your dreams to provide a compass to the essential you. Dreams can be slippery. It is very easy to forget what your dreams are. So recognize your dreams. This is Step One.

When you are caught in stress and the busyness of living it is sometimes hard to remember your dreams. In the last blog, I told you that I could go two places to paint some landscapes that are not far, but would be fun. I had already forgotten those ideas when it came time to write this entry. I had been moving. It has been raining. I forgot. And as a result was a little less of myself. Reaching up out of ordinary life allows you to be more vibrant, alive, full, radiant, and imaginative. Dreams pull you like a magnet towards something that you want.

Treat dreams as though they are cocoons that have radiant energy life forms in them, waiting to burst forth someday to reveal a powerful form of you.

We don’t have a lot of societal support for dreams, so keep them to yourself or share them only with people whom you can trust not to put you down. I have had even my best friend really pooh pooh my most precious dream so be careful with them.

Accept your dreams
. This is Step Two. Whatever your heart desires, this is a dream that belong to you. It is OK to have this dream. It is OK to want something special. That wanting comes from Source and gives you the opportunity to expand and grow. Dreams are delicate. Dreams are tender. Dreams need your loving acceptance of them. Cherish your dreams. Make space for your dreams. Allow them to emerge. And when they emerge, find ways to remember or “capture” your dreams.

Strategies to “Capture” your Dreams
Let the dreams exist. Make a special place for them. Give them their own book. If you’re really brave, get a sketch book in which you can write, and draw, or paste pictures, and add color. Don’t worry about being a great artist. Concentrate on what your dreams are, and then write them down, draw pictures, or paste in pictures from magazines. As you think about them, say to yourself “I accept my dreams.”

Create a Dream Box. Spend an afternoon browsing through magazines. Cut out words, phrases, pictures, images, and articles if you want that represent something you want. Then as life continues on, you can continue to add more to your dream box. My daughter and I went to TJ MAXX and found these wonderful boxes for less than $5.00 a couple of years ago. My daughter filled her box with pictures of horse gear she wanted to buy, furniture she would like to have, and things that made her feel good when she looked at them. My dream box has pictures of couples boating or going to the beach, and a wonderful aqua colored piece of cookware that I will own.

If you are a scrapbooker, then make a wonderful scrapbook showcasing dreams.

A friend of mine made a dream journal of the dreams he had at night, and got lots of images from National Geographic magazines to represent the dreams he recorded. You too can make a dream journal but make it for your waking dreams.

A pocket notebook
that you can keep next to your wallet might be all that you need. Just keep notes on those slippery dreams, and add more, as you get the inspiration. Right now, I have a dream box, a small notebook that I carry all the time, and a larger notebook, where I make notes to follow up. For example. I dream about painting watercolor paintings outdoors. There are several organizations that do plein air painting during the summers. So in my small notebook, I write “Paint outdoors this summer in the San Juan Islands.” In my medium size notebook, I write the results from my web search of the names and dates of where I need to go, and anything else that I might run into that relates to that dream. I sat in the library one day, and reviewed artists magazines, and looked at the artists whose work or whose color paintings gave me a fantastic response. I wrote them down in my medium size notebook because those are things I can do to help me towards the dream itself. They give me inspiration, and possibilities. Two artists that I looked at live out in the San Juans. Perhaps I will take a trip and go to their studios.

See. That’s the way dreams work.

Dreams begin to inspire and add juice to our thoughts. We begin to conceive that dreams are possible and actions you might take begin to pop into your mind.

Action of any kind is Step Three. When our dream shrink or get forgotten, we lose our imagination, our thinking gets small, our perspective shrinks.

So catching those dreams in some way is really important. The more colorful and vibrant you can describe them, the better. And since it is a dream, you don’t have to be concerned with the “what is”. You can fully indulge in the idea. My daughter dreamed about the biggest and best horse barns. I dreamed about the greatest painting trip to Scotland. She’s now living on a horse farm as the barn and horse manager. I’m living in an exquisite area that has plenty of landscapes I can paint (and weather and topography that looks a lot like Scotland).

Cherish those dreams. They are leading you someplace. Dreams help you shift states. Writing down your dreams help them to manifest. Looking through your dream box helps you upgrade your vibration and be inspirational.

Imagination is an important function in achieving success
. Click here to read more about imagination. Imagine your dreams coming true. Be choiceful and focus on what it will be like when a dream comes true. Turn your focus and attention away from the “what is” today – including the fact the what you want is not here. Because that just highlights what’s not here. Savor the thoughts of “Won’t it be wonderful when…” For more information about this topic, review the category Focus and Imagination.

So cherish these dreams. They are important. Dare to Dream.

Appearances Are Deceiving

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

Appearances are remarkably deceptive. I came over a rise, and there before me so powerful, so awe-inspiring, so breathtaking, was Mount Rainier. I caught my breath. One sweet sun lit morning, driving through the University District, the road made a long incline down. Coming from behind the treeline, across the channel, was the appearance of this magnificent mountain. It was huge and luminescent.

Whenever I am out, I watch for the Mountain. Seeing the Mountain is a gift for the day. I have found certain places while driving that Mt. Rainier is visible. The higher the elevation where I am, the more of Mr. Rainier I can see.

When the overcast or the clouds are too thick I can’t see the Mountain. From appearances, the mountain is gone. Sometimes the overcast is there and one would assume from appearances that the mountain is not visible; but you can see the Mountain perfectly. Sometimes the day is incredibly clear, but a thin veil of clouds clings to the Mountain. Appearances are very deceiving. Yesterday, I drove across the Snohomish River Valley. It was beautifully clear and there to the south, I could see Mount Rainier. My heart sang. I love seeing The Mountain. It has a powerful presence.

Preoccupied in thought, I once drove right through my favorite viewing spot and didn’t look. I gasped and then looked diligently.

Looking for Mount Rainier has become a metaphor for me. Appearances would have me believe that the mountain is not there much of the time.

The Truth of the mountain’s existence is not dependent upon whether I can see it. My capacity to see the mountain (the appearance) is dependent upon how high I am, where I am in relationship to trees, what the weather is, what direction I am facing, and if I happen to be looking or not. My “what is” regarding Mount Rainier has no correlation to the greater Reality of that mountain. Even when conditions have the appearance of not being conducive, the mountain can be seen.

Conditions that we view in our life may seem to be reality; the “what is” of our current life. Conditions are like the weather however, they constantly change. If we focus only on the “what is” in our life, we never view the greater Reality. Appearances are deceiving. I may seem to be unemployed right now, but I am working at one contract, I am in consideration for three positions, I have a phone interview coming up. I just finished a temporary assignment where I did not get the job I applied for. However the employer reviewed resumes and asked me to come in and work with the person he hired to revamp part of his accounting. The greater Reality is not “I am unemployed.” The greater Reality is a wondrous activity of mixing and matching. I am considering building a business. It’s a creative forming time.

When we focus on our “what is” we create more of what we think we see. What we focus on affects our state and our vibrational emission. Law of Success and Law of Attraction suggest that we focus not on our “what is” but on what we want to bring into our life. Focusing on appearances is not helpful. Focusing on the Reality that we are Creating is far more beneficial.

Inspirational Practice, a Law of Success Strategy

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

Law of Success can be bolstered by inspirational practice as a strategy. One of my best friends always keeps inspirational books in her bathroom in a lovely basket so you could read a page on a bathroom break. Her inspirational practice example inspired me to put a tiny table with some of my most favorite books in my own bathroom. Sue Bender, author of Plain and Simple says that she has a daily ritual of reading one page out of each of four small books. She says “The books change, but they always remind me that I am not alone, that there is a spirit larger than myself at work, a universe larger than my immediate self-interest and concerns.”

As one of your spiritual practices, create a focus point in one room, and begin to collect books there that you love to read. Create your own inspirational practice. This will help your practice with the Law of Success. I like to read mine as I am going to bed, or just after I wake up. Have a lovely uplifting cup of inspiration to begin your day. Inspiration helps us be more alive. The breath of Life breathes us as we allow our self to inhale hope and joy and wisdom. We remember our deeper Self.

As part of my own inspirational practice, I keep a number of books by my bedside. Two books by M. J. Ryan are staples of my inspirational practice right now. Attitudes of Gratitude, is a favorite book. When I read it the first time, I would read a chapter of two, and savor it during the day. It was like getting a full course meal. Trusting Yourself is a powerful book necessary for anyone who wants to tap into the richness of themselves and cooperate with the Law of Success.

Part of my inspirational practice is opening a book, and allowing synchronicity to choose the page on which to focus for the day. Or you could be methodical, and just begin at the front of the book and read a short article each day. When you reach for inspiration, you are consciously cooperating with the Law of Success. You are opening up to the greater Universe and your deep connection with Source. Reach for the best in yourself. Each day, nurture your being with some type of inspirational practice. You might enjoy our companion website www.quoteinspirational.com. Law of Success asks that you continually uplevel your state of being. An inspirational practice is one way.

You might enjoy these books by M.J. Ryan
