Okay before we jump into this article, I know some of you may be thinking all sorts of things about dreaming, you might even have rolled your eyes and thought oh-no here we go again. So let's clear up what dreaming isn't ...
- It's not a luxury (it's a necessity of life!)
- It's not just for children (whatever your age, it's the perfect age to dream and don't ever stop!)
- It's not a time-consuming waste of time (OMG seriously if you don't have time to dream, do you eat, sleep and shower?)
Now I've got that out of the way, let's hear from Albert Einstein...
Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions.
Everything around you right now was created because someone dared to dream and to take action. Cool aye. Dreaming is an in-built tool at your disposal right now, always, that allows you to create a life you love.
Allow yourself to dream now...
Gather up your journal or a book, your favourite pen, perhaps a cuppa or a glass of water. Then head to a spot where you know you'll feel relaxed and comfortable.
Now wriggle around and get comfortable. As you do that notice how you're feeling even more relaxed and calm.
Allow your mind to drift out to a time in the future, perhaps it's the 31 December 2016 or further out if you prefer. Imagine the life you're living...
- What does it look like?
- Where are you?
- How do you feel?
- Who is with you?
- Are there any smells or tastes?
- What else you notice?
Be sure to write down all of what you dream. Allow your thoughts to flow. There's no need to judge or censor them. Simply dream. Once you're done, you'll want to set aside time to review what you wrote down, to organise your thoughts and prioritise the actions you'll take.
Create the life you love
Dreaming is a powerful, integral part of creating a life you love. To realise those dreams, for them to be REAL, you'll also need to commit and take action. Give yourself permission to pursue your dream, to be successful. Be relentless in the pursuit of your dreams through purposeful action. If you do that - dream, give yourself permission to commit and take action - you can start to live your dream. Wow, imagine that.
