We want to be able to know our dreams when we see them. When we look at all the various opportunities on the menu of life, we want to know our dreams well enough to choose the opportunities that will lead us closer to our dreams with confidence.
Luckily, we don’t have to wait for someday to get acquainted with our dreams. We can begin becoming best friends with them today.
Our dreams offer wisdom on how we are to achieve them. Our dreams most often already exist in the world. For example, say we dream of running and finishing a marathon. This dream already exists as fulfilled in all the people who have completed a marathon. We can learn much about the pathway to achieving our dream from them. We can meet people who have completed marathons and ask them questions or we can read books written by them. Their wisdom can become the wisdom of our dream communicating with us.
The more we can live in conversation with our dream the more insight we will have as how to realize it.
Recently, I read a book written by Jerry and Ester Hicks*, which talks about the importance of feeling the emotions of living your dream even when it has yet to materialize.
How we feel affects what we notice and who and what is attracted to us.
When a friend is speaking, we build connection with them by showing them that we understand the emotions in his or her story. In the same way, we can build connection with our dreams by living their joy in our present lives.
Respect the power of your dreams. Your dreams are seeds that can grow into the reality of your future. Respect yourself as a changing being. We once did not even know how to crawl. Look at all the dreams that you have realized between then and where you presently are in life. Now think of all of your dreams that could be realized in the next few months, let alone the next five years. Your dreams are dancing in your future. Now is the best time to become friends with them.
