“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.” George Bernard Shaw Read
My Dream Life is so vividly clear to me. I can honestly say that it has always been very clear to me. I have never lacked the belief that I WILL have my Dream Life. I have never lacked the belief that I COULD have my Dream Life. I realize now, as I sit here at 32 years old, that my one misstep is that I have been trying to figure out HOW to bring my Dream Life into the physical plane.
I have suddenly become very determined to meet my Dream Life in person. I know that I have come so far in my physical life already. I have had people tell me that I need to just let enough be enough, stop striving for more. Perhaps I would heed their words if I felt like I had finally satiated that itch under my skin. I have yet to reach that sweet place of rightness, when the most obscure puzzle piece slips easily into it’s partners embrace. My only regret is that I listened to those who told me I should be happy with how far I have come, that THIS life was good enough.
I hold no grudge towards them, they can’t see the splendor of my Dream Life. They can’t see the way the sun rises and then sets across my property. They can’t rest their head in the hollow of my horses neck. They aren’t able to sit at my desk, looking out the window watching the chickens peck and scratch the ground as they hunt for fat worms. Their hands are not dug deep into the fertile soil of the garden that sustains me all year round. Their bare feet can’t sink into the plushness of my cream colored bedroom carpet. They don’t sit on the loveseat in my study reading books that spark ideas that lead to the writing of spectacular stories! They aren’t able hug my wellness coaching clients who walk out my front door with smiles on their faces because they finally don’t feel alone in their health journey. So no, I can’t begrudge those who have told me to be satisfied, because they simple don’t see what I see.
From the first moment I learned about visioning, I started building my dream home. And that vision has only expanded since then. It now includes travel plans and my own business and hobbies that I love. If you asked me today to tell you some detail about my Dream Life, I could answer as if I were already there.
So what gives? Outside of the small amount of time I set aside for visioning, I spend most of my time trying to figure out HOW to make enough MONEY to give birth to my Dream Life. Ah, what a folly I have learned of recent.
And so, today marks the day when I stop trying to MAKE my Dream Life a reality. I have been told by many people that I have a tremendous imagination. And do you know what our most powerful manifesting tool is? You guessed it, our imagination.
Every time I try to figure out how to FORCE my Dream Life into the here and now, I’ll stop. I’ll take a breath, and I’ll taste the freshness of a home grown cucumber in my mouth. I’ll cross my legs on the sofa downstairs and close my eyes, drawing in a deep breath of the lavender. I’ll open my new laptop computer and get lost in my Python coding classes for hours. I live my Dream Life each day, and I delight in the moments when that which I have imagined is created in my physical world.
