The Art Of Daydreaming

"When the soul wishes to experience something she throws an image of the experience before her and enters into her own image." ~ Meister Eckhart ~
Do you have any idea what you think about all day?
It sounds like a silly question, but most of us don’t actually observe the drama that’s constantly going on inside our heads. You’ve heard the saying “Be careful what you wish for because you might just get it!!”
This is the universal Law of Attraction at work and it applies to all of us without question. Unless we make a conscious effort to watch ourselves from the sidelines, our everyday thoughts and our reactions to the environment are largely habitual.
We do our daily work and we plan and we interact with our fellow human beings. But in between all that, we have a lot going on internally. Secret fears. Grudges. And a whole lot of negative self talk. As you begin to become aware of your thoughts, you’ll begin to see that the reality outside yourself mirrors what is going on inside your head.
Daydreaming and the Law of Attraction
What you focus on expands. If you are constantly worrying about this or that…then guess what? You will attract more events in your life to worry about. It really is that simple.
If you tell yourself NOT to worry about something…well you are focused on it, so you ARE worrying about it. The trick is to think about what you DO want and not what you DON’T want.
Did I say it was easy? No, it’s not easy to change a lifetime of habitual thinking, but just being aware of it is a step in the right direction.
You want to make space for that which you want. Like making space for a new piece of furniture in your home, you must do the same for new ideas and dreams. Here are three tips to help create space for what you want.
Make time for dreaming. I like to do this in the morning with a cup of coffee. But do what works for you. But build this into your daily schedule. Let your ideas breathe a bit. This could be in the form of journaling. Or as you gaze out the window with a cup of coffee. Let your mind wander on that which you hope for, dream of. What sounds delicious, fun, exciting? What do you want more of in your life!
Monitor Your Energy. At different times throughout the day, check in with where you're devoting your mental and emotional energy. Are you devoting it in ways that will restore, protect or replenish your energy? For me, this often includes brainstorming, gratitude, laughter or social connection. Meditation, prayer, nature walks or making a list of things you are grateful for are some great ways to do this.
Start small, start today! Action begets action. The smallest steps make space for the next ones. What one thing will you put into practice?
