The winds of change are still blowing and a feeling of melancholy is swirling about. We are neither here nor there, it’s cloudy and feels as if we’re in suspended animation while old things die away and the new has yet to emerge. What are we to do? UGH!
Do not allow the negative emotions to spiral out of control. Take this in-between time to: review where you’ve been and how far you’ve come; continue to purge what’s no longer needed or useful; rest and practice mindfulness or meditation exercises often; feed yourself healthy, nourishing foods; and dream a lot.
Yes, dust off your dreaming skills and put them to work. Everything that now exists was once a dream in someone’s mind – an inspired idea, an imagining, a flight of fancy. My favorite dreamer of all time is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His “I have a Dream” speech is one of the most memorable in history. Because this one humble and brave man had a dream, and dared to share it with the world, we are living it out today and continuing to make it bigger and better.
As you practice dreaming about amazing and miraculous possibilities, you open an invisible door that can lead you to it. All you need to do is dream, make note of the ideas that arise in your mind, and take the inspired actions that feel good to you. In Chapter 64 of the Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu tells us that “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Simply take one small step at a time and before you know it, you’ll be living that dream.
Mel’s Two Cents: During this seemingly chaotic time, practice taking a load off and dreaming. Dream like a child who still believes in magic and whose priority is having fun. Dream of what will make you laugh and squeal with sheer delight. Dream of what will make you cry tears of joy and pride. Dream of what will make you dance like a beautiful, colorful peacock strutting his stuff. Dream of what will bring you immense joy and fulfillment. Dream of a world full of peace and love. Begin to dream your desired reality into your existence today. Make it a fun game that you play often which will feed the child inside who’s frustrated and bored. Dream. Dream. Dream.
Sweet dreams my friends.
Until next time.
