When we throw our dreams into space, we don't know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country...Sometimes the dreams that come true are the dreams we never even knew we had. In our dreams, possibilities begin and our inner callings are given voice. In the quiet whispers, in the stirrings of the heart, the unconscious flows into connection and action as we weave our most precious life.
My dreams have been coming true lately. Before my journey to London, I felt very stuck and frustrated that I couldn't "manifest" in the way I had in the past. I wondered why it was so darn hard to bring my ideas and dreams to reality. I created a vision board, wrote about what I wanted to experience in my life, meditated. I realize now that those prayers and desires were actually taking root, I just didn't see them. At the time, I didn't trust my own creative power and process. Sometimes it takes patience and letting go of the timeline and the picture of how it's all going to look to truly surrender to the higher plan and highest good.
I am thankful for the struggle and thankful for the distraction of other "work" to allow me to soften my intense mindset and focus. I was pushing with the energy of frustration and fear, but have learned to cultivate the feeling of surrender just a bit more. From my experience, here are a few steps to help us get out of our own way!
- FOLLOW YOUR INSPIRATION
Sometimes our dreams become clear to us as we start to listen to that inner voice inside. What are you drawn to? What wild hair keeps standing up? Without judgment, allow yourself to follow your desires and yearnings, like glittering clues along a path leading home. Let your inner wisdom lead the way as it whispers and comes to you in your sleep.
It doesn’t need to make sense. Creativity, intuition and guidance comes in surprising ways and what seems like a silly proposition, can actually lead to greater insight and revelation.
When we follow our bliss, we are honoring a deeper destiny at work.
- CLARITY OF VISION
The clearer we are about what we want, the easier it is to manifest with the co-creative partnership of the universe. Your dream is more likely to come true if you first see it clearly in your mind.
Write out what it is you’d like to experience and how you’d like to feel. Ask yourself, “how will this intention serve me and how will it serve everyone I come in contact with?” Infuse your writing with positive language and allow the joy and happiness of experiencing what you want permeate your being. Manifesting happens from the feeling!
- LET GO AND TRUST
What does it mean to truly surrender? For me, it’s letting go of how things will unfold. I’ve learned that there is a greater path for my highest good that my smaller, ego-directed, fearful self can’t always see. I hold light-filled space for what I want (through meditation/writing/vision boarding), but I surrender to spirit on how it is going to come to me.
The outcome that we try so hard to force may not be as good for us as the one that comes naturally. Remind yourself that you are protected, guided and that your intentions will bloom when the season is right 🌟
