Lets face it, we all have dreams. and we all want to know how to manifest them.
I believe everyone is an artist, and the artist in you has imagined a dream for your life
I’ve had dreams since as long as I can remember…and so have you. We lived our dreams in our imagination. We were brimming with confidence and were sure that one day we would manifest our dreams. However sadly for most of us, it all ended when we grew up.
Why? Because the world and all its instruments, including our parents and teachers told us that our dreams are just not possible. So we gave up on our dreams and followed the paths that were laid out for us. Some became doctors, others became teachers and some others followed other professions. However there were those who were determined to manifest their dreams.
They defied the establishments and followed their passion. They became sports stars, musicians and still others became artists and actors. When we look at these people they show us something which is a key ingredient in learning how to manifest dreams. They all have a passion for what they are doing. They have discovered what they love and they started doing it and found that they are actually good at it. And very soon other people noticed it too and started supporting them by watching their games and movies and buying their music and art.
There’s something else that these people have and that we too had when we were young. It is “imagination.” They imagined their dreams, which is necessary if you want to know how to manifest dreams. Imagination is very important for manifesting dreams, because it allows you to experience something before you can actually have it.
If you want to know how to manifest dreams you must realize that all reality starts in the mind. The architect cannot construct a building if he hasn’t designed it. And he cannot design something if he hasn’t seen it in his mind. Dreams always start on a blank canvas, that’s why staring at a blank canvas can be the most exciting thing to do, it lets your mind wander and imagine great things!
Similarly you cannot manifest your dreams if you cannot see it first. But seeing is not enough. It needs to become tangible. You need to hear it, feel it and touch it. Next you need to affirm it with emotion in the present or past tense. That indeed it is so. Another thing that is necessary if you want to know how to manifest dreams is to listen to yourself and following your gut. That small voice inside you that may tell you to go left when everybody shouts, “go right!” Following your dreams seems daunting, especially if you’re surrounded by negative people. However, if you give up on your dreams you may end your life with regrets.
Isn’t it better to see how far you can go. Where you may end up? In case you’re thinking who am I to want to be great and famous, let me remind you of the famous words of Robert Anthony: “You can have anything you want if you will give up the belief that you can’t have it.“
Homework for the week: Stare at a blank piece of paper for a few minutes, and let your mind fill the page with images, take note of these images and capture the positive ones, trash the negative ones. Keep in mind this will be a very hard exercise, the first moments might be filled with anxious thoughts or negative images, let the blank paper absorb it like a sponge, then let your mind wander – close your eyes if you need to and wait for the dreams of your childhood to wake up.
