Dreams are powerful! Dreams are inspired pictures of a new future waiting for each of us. The bigger the Dream – the more powerful the urge to work towards that Dream. A dream starts out like a tiny seed in the mind and that seed once it is planted needs to be nurtured in order for it to grow and bloom. When we ignore our dream(s) they often die and a little piece of us dies with it. I feel that our Creator, Universe, Source Energy, Infinite Mind (whatever you can relate to) will never plant a Dream Seed in your mind without giving you every opportunity and resource needed to accomplish that DREAM. When you have a dream, pay attention to it! Nurture it! Be assured your dream will one day become an important part of your reality. I love the following quote:
Inspiration is having the clear picture of what I am wanting — and letting Universal forces come into play to get the outcome. — Abraham
Not so long ago I had the honour of giving the Keynote address to a group of mature students who had big dreams and as mature students/learners they all saw their dreams become their reality. Their hard work and persistence paid off. They all believed in themselves and followed their Dreams.
Anyone who has been around me for a long time know how passionate I am about Dreams. When it comes to manifesting, visioning and picturing/planning ones future, I feel it is imperative to set Big Goals for your Dreams. Why? Read on.
Dreams are persistent! They don’t go away easily. I call my dreams “God Whispering” or “The Universe knocking” and often refer to them in workshops as “Infinite Intelligence calling”. Whatever power you relate to, it is important to know that each one of us is being supported towards attaining our dreams and goals. Dreams come to make us grow and become more than we ever thought possible.
Infinite intelligence makes sure that everyone has dreams and goals. However, not everyone pays attention to the Whispering, the Knocking and the Calling when they have a dream! Quite often, life interrupts and people bury their dreams. There is nothing sadder than a garden of buried forgotten dreams and goals. From my personal experience, when you follow your dream, unseen forces will conspire to assist you in accomplishing them.
There is a famous saying that goes “CONCEIVE – BELIEVE – ACHIEVE!
CONCEIVE – Is the mental VISION of your dream. Hold it close to your heart. Focus on your vision and “visit” it daily.
BELIEVE – In your dream. Believe you are deserving of having it. Most of all BELIEVE you have already gotten it!
ACHIEVE – You may have to take the necessary Action Steps needed to Achieving your dreams and goals. James L. Allen says it beautifully: “The key to happiness is having dreams; the key to success is making them come true.”
Below are some action steps you can take to making your dreams come true:
- Know what you desire and VISUALIZE IT. Keep a vivid picture in your mind. Always write it down.
- BE PASSIONATE about your dream(s). Passion is energy and energy is a powerful attractor.
- TAKE ACTION toward achieving your dream. It may take you out of your comfort zone. Know that there is tremendous growth waiting for you.
- KEEP FOCUSED on your dream(s) and unseen forces will conspire to assist you beyond your wildest imagination.
- BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! Don’t let anyone’s opinion of what you can or cannot do influence your decisions.
- BE TENACIOUS! Hold fast to your dream(s) knowing in your heart that “Dreams Do Come True!”
“You are today where your thoughts brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you. “James L. Allen
