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.
