When contemplating the idea of dreams, I’ve come up with an interesting new definition that I really like…
Our dreams are our Soul talking to us, reminding us of what we set out to do when we were first born into these physical bodies. They are our Soul reminding us – from the highest perspective – of what our unique contribution to this world was intended to be.
Dreams are not some lofty concept that our rational minds conjured up. They are our Soul saying, “This is what we were gonna do! This is what we came here for!”
And so it becomes our joyous and holy responsibility to honor our dreams, and to make choices that move us towards our dreams.
Each and every one of us was born with a unique set of gifts, skills, talents, and sensibilities. These always go hand in hand with our natural preferences, which are the things we like to do.
Yet while the Soul urges us to follow and honor our natural preferences, the rational mind may come in and say, “Nah, let’s just not do that! Nah, let’s just do what everyone else is doing! Let’s just go through the motions, let’s try and survive here. Let’s just try and do what we think is possible from our limited vantage point.”
All the while the Soul says, “No! Stop! Listen to me! Let’s do what we came here to do! Let’s fulfill our destiny!”
Many people today have talked themselves out of doing what they really want to do. Some may not even know anymore what it is they really want to do. If you feel that’s you, my urging to you today would be, get back in touch with that silent place within, and rediscover your purpose in life. It doesn’t matter where you’re at right now, what your physical age is, or where you’ve been before; your point of power is in the Present Moment! And you can choose right now to move towards where you truly want to be.
But you must listen to your Soul! Listen to your Soul and give your rational mind a rest for a change. Just give it a break. That rational mind of yours’ been working overtime, it’s exhausted! Just give it a rest. Let your rational mind go on a well deserved vacation.
Why not give yourself permission, and lovingly tell your rational mind, “Thanks very much, I appreciate the input, but I’m moving on to a higher perspective! I’m breaking free from these perceptions of lack and limitation that have clouded my vision. I’m moving on up into my Soul Space!”
And if you’re already following the path of your dreams, just pause for a moment and give yourself permission to feel good about that. Just feel good. Just. Feel. Good. Allow yourself to notice that you’re on the right track, and allow for the possibility of miracles.
The life of your dreams is the life you came here to live.
