Dreams, as I am using the term here, are defined as ambitions or aspirations. They are a part of everyone’s life. Some people have vivid and absolute pictures of what they want their lives to be. Others tend to see little of their future and just let life happen to them. Still others believe, sadly, that their dreams are impossible and meaningless.
Dreams are, of course, a product of your mind. You alone can decide how badly you want a dream. But you have to know what you want before the universe can begin to help you see it as yours and produce it for you. That knowing is a decision on your part. No ambivalent feelings allowed here.
When you know what your dream is, you can begin to form a picture. By seeing this picture often, with as much detail as possible, and by adding the emotions you believe you would feel working for and receiving your dream, you can make it happen.
Of course, there is another necessary element, that of action. If you truly want this dream to appear for you, you will follow through with the appropriate action. That action proves to the universe that this is what you desire. If your actions are only half-hearted, your dream was only half-hearted.
There is a last major ingredient to add to this picture. Gratitude! Picture the accomplishment of your dream as a gift and add the feeling of gratitude. Gratitude for something you haven’t even seen yet can make it much more real.
Think on these things and realize that your positive thoughts are what bring wonderful things, material and otherwise, to your life. The life you probably want to create, one of beauty and fulfillment, depends on what your dreams hold.
This is all not to say that you should live in the future. It is, rather, a suggestion that your dreams mean something. They are your mind’s way of telling you there is something good for you out there. To ignore them is to ignore an important part of yourself.
Make your dreams work for you. This is your life, and nobody can make it something you don’t want, except you. You are in control. Theory
"The soul contains the event that shall befall
it, for the event is only the actualization of
its thoughts, and what we pray to ourselves
for is always granted."
