Are you busy chasing your dreams?
How our language, focus and intention determine what we manifest
I don’t know how it took me so long to realise… Seriously. I’ve been working with language, energy, intention and manifestation for a long time. How did this one escape me?
I can only put it down to the fact that everything comes to us when we are ready to receive it and learn the lessons it has to give.
For a long time, I have worked on chasing my dreams. I have set my course, refined my intentions, created energetic containers for manifesting my heart’s desires and worked with other energy healers, coaches and more to clear whatever energetic blocks are standing in my way.
Each and every aspect of my life is a million miles from where I’d ever expected it could be, in a wonderful way. I’ve manifested some incredible people, events and outcomes into my life and continue to do so. And, there’s still more work to do.
In clinic, I assist clients to change their lives too — from stuck, dull and uninspired to living more fulfilling, purposeful existences. The more we open to possibility and clear the blocks standing in our way, the more freedom, expansion and magic enter our lives — even in the dull, monotony we learn to find magic.
We all have dreams that we are chasing…
Very suddenly, during a client session, it hit me like a magical, exciting, lightning bolt giving my whole body chills and shivers. Why, when we talk about our hopes and dreams do we use language like “I’m chasing my dreams”?
When we are chasing dreams, it implies that they are running away from us.
What if, instead, we looked at our dreams as though they too are searching for us?
Without us, the holder of the dream, fulfilling the dream in this reality, the dream remains nothing but a conceptual thought, a murmur on the wind, a fleeting desire.
The dream needs us. It needs a physical vessel to channel it from dream and concept into the physical plane. Without us, it remains stuck in a theoretical space.
One client I worked with yesterday had it come up that not only was she chasing her dreams, but her nervous system was also stuck in a flight response wanting to run away from the very things she desired — fear getting in the way of her actualising and materialising her desires. She was running away from her dreams even as she was chasing them.
It was the cat chasing it’s tail, never making contact. Getting close, closing the gap and then, boom, another leap away from the two connecting and becoming real.
As we feel into how this sits in our life, it is vital we acknowledge this dance — towards, away from, towards, away from, repeat.
How does this dance feel for you?
For me, my dreams and I occasionally meet in a dark alley, make mad, passionate love and birth into reality what I intended. However, with this awareness it feels more like dumb luck of the two of us connecting rather than a planned, consciously co-created birthing process.
At other times, I run from dreams, then I run to them, they run towards me, then away and we repeat this dance ad infinitum.
Now that I’ve seen and felt this reality, I am settling into a more grounded confidence of what I want in my manifesting life — my dreams need me as much as I need them.
Everything I have dreamed of lives in my dream because it too, wants to see the light of day, that’s why it’s been shown to me.
My steps to bring it in:
- Settle into my body.
- Feel into all my senses what it will be like having my dream and I in loving and co-creative union with each other.
- Enhance the feelings, supercharge them, amp them up to the next level.
- See the merging and melding of my consciousness with my dream’s consciousness.
- Release it to the Universe, my guides and angels with love and the knowledge that it’s on it’s way to meet me in Divine Timing — that, or something better.
