Why you should choose to follow your dreams

I am writing this article after waking up this morning feeling really refreshed after a great night’s sleep. It was one of those nights that seemed to be full of enjoyable and eventful dreams too, and I can still clearly remember many of the things that those dreams contained.

I am writing this article after waking up this morning feeling really refreshed after a great night’s sleep. It was one of those nights that seemed to be full of enjoyable and eventful dreams too, and I can still clearly remember many of the things that those dreams contained.

I hope you too regularly get nights full of dreams, but if you do, what do you with them? You see your dreams are important and can give you many important insights into your life.

In reality you will dream virtually every night, and often 5 or more times per night, but most of the content of all of those dreams will be lost to you unless you can remember it or, more importantly, know how to teach yourself to do so. Learning how to recall, analyze, and then interpret your dreams is something that will really open up new possibilities for you and your life.

Quite simply, whatever you know or believe about your dreams, the fact is that they are based upon the contents of your mind, or more specifically your subconscious mind. Each day you are bombarded by images of all sorts and it is only those that you consciously choose to recognize that you actually experience.

The rest simply pass into your subconscious for sorting later, i.e. whilst you sleep. Your eyes, ears, and other sense receptacles are merely the medium by which light, sound, and other senses are received and then passed to your brain. It is the brain that actually decides what you consciously see, hear, taste, etc. But the reality is that every day light waves and sound waves carry millions of unnoticed images to you and just some of them can appear in your dreams as the brain does its daily sorting.

An example of this is that until it was made illegal, advertisers used subliminal messages to get you to buy their goods or services. These were hidden messages placed into background music in places like supermarkets, malls, and airports. You wouldn’t consciously hear them as your ears simply don’t have the ability to choose what they take in and pass to your brain. So they would go into your subconscious until you later saw or heard something to trigger the desire to buy.

Another example is that when you have the radio on when you are driving or working do you actually “hear” everything that is broadcast? You may notice your favorite tunes or important news announcements, but much of it will simply have no impact. But the fact is that sound waves are carrying everything that comes out of the radio via your ears to your brain and then into your mind, either conscious or subconscious. And it works exactly the same for all the things that are in your line of vision in every place you go each and every day.

Wow! That’s a lot of stuff!

And the only way you will get to it is when your subconscious mind releases some of it in dream form. So can you see why it’s so important to choose to follow your dreams?

Consider these three points:

– The people in your dreams can tell you so much about yourself. You will usually dream about them to emphasize particular qualities or skills they possess (or possessed) that you wish you had and would benefit from learning how to acquire.

– The events in your dreams may point you towards things you want in your waking life. You will often dream about doing things you would not or could not do in real life and your dream may be encouragement to go out and develop those skills or areas of knowledge.

– The way you feel whilst you experience your dreams can be vital in enabling you to look at the emotions you are experiencing in life and help you towards any changes you may need to make. This can be particularly relevant in areas of your health or relationships.

Each day so much information is absorbed into your mind that it would surely be foolish to ignore it. And the world of your dreams opens the door to so much of it and so by learning to remember, record and understand your dreams you will gain real life-changing benefits.

Throughout history people from all walks of life have used their dreams to help them to achieve their goals. I hope you choose to follow your dreams too!

Standing Firm With Your Dreams

Standing Firm With Your Dreams. To have a dream is to be visionary, optimistic, courageous and self believing. Your own internal measurements are first and foremost the most important.

Standing Firm With Your Dreams

To have a dream is to be visionary, optimistic, courageous and self believing. Your own internal measurements are first and foremost the most important. However occasionally you will need to seek external feedback on your progress towards your goals.

My message I give to you is, when you do, be sure it is from people who are truly interested in seeing you succeed. Avoid the dream stealer like the plague. These are, some negative friends, competitive peers or any person who doesn’t have your best interest at heart.

 ”Neutral doesn’t count.”

Seek feedback from someone who is on your side, wanting you to succeed, but will still be objective and honest with you. Avoid joining the misery crowd, as they are always on the look out for new members.

”Misery truly does love company, don’t make it your company.”

If your dreams and goals call for you to surpass the achievements of your particular social crowd, business or work colleagues. Be sure to look out for the bow and arrow of those who are wishing you were back where they are.

”Dodge the snide remarks and catty comments, let them roll right off your back.”

Now before I leave you here’s one last culprit associated with stealing your dreams away, and that is FEAR!

  • False
  • Evidence
  • Appearing
  • Real

Fear destroys fortunes, relationships, confidence, career success, your personal dreams and ultimate happiness. When we are fearful we avoid the things that matter most, the things that will make the difference to our lives our situation and will lead us to live in harmony with our beliefs, values, wants and desire. Fear, if left unresolved can destroy our lives it is one of the many enemies lurking inside us.

I advice you to do battle with fear and build your courage to fight what’s holding you back. So you can set yourself free and achieve what you may had once thought was the impossible.

Let’s do something amazing!

“Don’t just wait. Make it happen.”

“There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen” ~ James A Lovell ~

Ever hear that good things come to those who wait? Sometimes this is true, but it is also true that greater things are received by those who are willing to go get them. Without being willing to go for what you want in life you are limited to receiving what life will hand you, instead of receiving what you worked hard for. In order to go for what you want out of life you must first plan.go-confidently-in-the-direction-of-your-dreams

How will you know what to go work hard for if you don’t even know what you are working hard for. Do some research within yourself and within your world to know where you should aim, and then pursue your goals and dreams with a desperateness, and limitlessness that is unrivaled by anyone. Doing so will allow you to be in prime position to receive what you most deserve out of life. So get up, get active, and make things happen now!

Conscious Language: The Power of Our Words

thoughtOur language has great power. It is an integral part of bringing what we desire into our lives, and also is a key element for bringing what we don’t want into our lives as well. Many times, we’re not even conscious of what we’re doing or saying and wonder why we’re not getting the results we desire.

The Law of Attraction states that what we focus on grows, whether it’s conscious or not, or intentional or not. We’ve all had the experience of thinking about buying a new car and all of a sudden, it seems like we see that exact make and model everywhere! It’s not that there are suddenly more of this kind of car, but rather, we’re noticing them because of the shift in our focus.

What we focus on grows and we’ll bring into our consciousness- whether that’s positive or negative. If we’re just focusing on problems, we’ll get more of them- even if we’re saying, “I want to solve these problems”, or “I have to get rid of these problems”.

For this exercise, I like to think of the Universe as a great big genie, standing in front of me asking, “Gail, what would you like today?”  If the only things on my mind are problems… problems… problems… the genie, who has no way to distinguish between “good” or “bad”, rubs his hands together and says, “GREAT, she’s thinking about and talking about problems, let’s give her more problems!” Even if we’re saying, “I want to get rid of these problems”, the energy behind the words is fear, lack, limitation and THAT’s what we’ll attract to us.

Our thoughts and language have great power. Once we realize that and use it to our benefit, we can create a life of happiness and ease.

The power of language really hit home for me a few days ago. If you follow my blog, you’ve already met Koda, our 2-year old Samoyed pup who teaches me great lessons daily. Koda loves to go for a walk- any time. Since I work out of my home I’m usually barefoot. Koda has learned that when I put on my socks and shoes, that usually means I’m going somewhere- and that he’s going too. (Oh goodie, walk time!)

A few days ago it was chilly and I went into my bedroom, sat down on the bed and put on a pair of warm socks. Koda saw this and immediately did his “Oh wow, we’re going for a walk!” happy dance. Knowing what he was thinking, I asked him, “Do you think we’re going for a walk?”, to which he excitedly pawed at the floor and ‘talked’ to me. He was certain we were going for a walk. When I tried to tell him that I have to work for a bit longer and “We’ll go for a walk later”, all he heard was WALK. He was convinced that we were going for a walk right then and there and sat by the front door waiting for me. He stayed there for more than an hour, knowing that I said the word “walk”, which had to mean that we were going soon. Even when I said “We’re NOT going for a walk”, all he heard was “walk”.

What struck me as so funny about this is that Koda was just like the genie. All he heard was “walk”. He ignored the “later” part, just like the genie hears “problems” and doesn’t pay attention to the “I don’t want” part. We get what we focus on- whether it’s what we want or not.

This simple example made me consciously think about my language, not only with Koda, but also with the Universe. What am I saying I don’t want instead of focusing on what I do desire?Instead of “I don’t want problems!”, change it to, “I’m happy, healthy and prosperous.” After all, it’s much more fun to focus on the things I DO want than those I don’t.

More importantly, if the Universe is going to give me more of what I focus on, then shouldn’t I focus on the GOOD things that I desire?

When we look at our lives in this way, it seems like such a no-brainer.  Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want. Simple and easy.

Then ask yourself, “What am I focusing on in this moment?”, knowing that you are creating tomorrow’s reality with today’s thoughts.

When you look at life that way, it makes us much more conscious not only of our actions, but of our thoughts and words today. Your actions, thoughts and words today are but seeds for tomorrow’s garden. What are you planting?

We have the opportunity to keep it simple. Focus on what you desire. Think good thoughts. Speak positive words. Be happy.

As for Koda, he continued to focus on “walk”, and he too got what he desired… just a bit later than he’d hoped for… but that’s a blog for another day. :)

Accepting Responsibility For Our Actions

Accepting Responsibility For Our Actions. Everyday, we're faced with decisions, but rarely do we make these decisions based on conscious choice and then take responsibility for these actions, accepting that these choices bring about our reality.

Accepting Responsibility For Our Actions

Everyday, we’re faced with decisions, but rarely do we make these decisions based on conscious choice and then take responsibility for these actions, accepting that these choices bring about our reality. This is especially true when our actions don’t bring the desired result we’d hoped for. It’s easier to blame other individuals for our disappointments. Heaven forbid we take a look in the mirror and acknowledge the role we played.

While we may find ourselves in situations that we feel are not of our choosing, we are still responsible for how we handle the issue and blaming another is an easy way to take the responsibility off ourselves. We remain in victim mode, allowing the event(s) to control our emotions and our actions almost always follow the emotional reactions we project.

Taking responsibility means acknowledging our emotions in any given situation. If we project hatred, hatred is what we get in return. If we feel deceived, we will be deceived. If we feel hurt, we will continue to hurt ourselves. It’s a never ending circle of emotional projection that can only be changed when we accept full responsibility for the part we played. Denial comes when our childish side moves to the front.

The wounded, inner child part of us is always the victim. It has no control over emotional reaction and this is something only time and experience can bring. Wisdom comes from learning to accept the roles we place ourselves in and how those roles shape our very being.

Taking a good long look in the mirror is a painful experience. If it’s not painful, we’re not doing it right. We’re not looking in the right places and we’re only seeing the features of ourselves we want to see. It takes a lot of inner fortitude to look at our unattractive areas and see them for what they are. Sometimes these areas can be fixed. Sometimes they are damaged to the point that we feel nothing will be the same again. Send inner healing to these areas, for what you see in yourself is what you project into the world around you.

We need to recognize the areas of our lives that we’ve refused to accept responsibility for. The longer we deny their existence, the longer we stay in victim mode, allowing the wounded, inner child to control every aspect of our emotions. The programming of our inner child dictates emotional response, but programming can be changed and the inner child eventually grows up and accepts responsibility for who they are, what they will become and how they treat others. Our inner child is a vital part of who we are and there’s a big difference between a wounded, suffering inner child and a healthy, well-adjusted one.
