We’ve all heard the saying, “Be careful what you wish for, lest it come true”. It’s mostly spoken when something bad has happened to you. Inherently, it also warns about not wishing for things to happen. I agree that it’s not a good idea to wish for bad things to happen to yourself or anyone else. However, I totally encourage everyone to wish for good things to happen. I see wishes becoming dreams and dreams translating into reality.
I remember a time in my life when I had given up on dreams. I felt as if this was all there was to life and eventually that thought brought me sadness. I later understood that the spice of life was having a dream. I don’t remember where I heard this, but I was encouraged to dream. Not only to dream but dream big with no limitations. It wasn’t easy to do at first but with a little practice the dreams came into my consciousness and they were big. They not only brought a smile to my lips but also hope to my heart. “There is more to life!” “There is another way!” I became a dream believer.
Do you believe in dreams? Do you believe they can come true?
The first step in bringing a dream to manifestation is clarity. Begin by answering the following question:
What exactly do I wish to manifest? Be as specific as possible.
A great exercise to do is repeatedly ask yourself the “Why?” question.
For example, you dream about becoming a world renown journalist.
The first question would be “Why do you want to become a world renown journalist?”
Answer, “Because I want the public to know the truth?”
“Why do you want the public to know the truth?”
“Because that way, people can make informed decisions?”
“Why do you want people to make informed decisions?”
Continue until there are no more “Whys?” to answer.
You may be surprised at your answers. Your “Why?” may have nothing to do with becoming a world renown journalist. Maybe you find out through answering the “Why?” question that you do want to be a journalist but the “world renown” part is not as important to you as you originally thought. Or you find out that, yes, this is exactly what you want to manifest and you’re willing to do whatever it takes to get there.
Clarity is key. Try this exercise a couple of times and let me know your results.
