You Gotta Have a Dream to Make a Dream Come True
You Gotta Have a Dreammm !!
You guessed it – this month we are having a Conscious conversation about Dreams.
I remember first hearing the phrase “You Gotta Have a Dreammm!” from my Amway days. Yes, I admit to being a full-fledged member of Amway with my ex-husband. And no I did not participate voluntarily.
Some of you may remember Amway as a soap company out of Ada, MI. In fact, it was one of the first multi-level marketing/soap selling business to pave the way for MLM’s today.
What does this have to do with having a dream? I’m getting there.
So, the whole time I’m in Amway with my ex I’m completely terrified. I only see a “ScamWay” with the ones at the top of the pyramid making money, living in mansions, driving fancy cars, taking dream vacations and so on. Truth be told I was terrified of getting my dream.
At each meeting, they would preach to you about your dream building. “You Gotta Have a Dreammm!”. I got so sick of hearing that I wanted to hurl. I completely blocked the message. It was too much pie in the sky for me to look at what I wanted, believing I would never get it. I was in no way aligned with possibility let alone dreaming. It was scary, painful and I wanted to hear nothing about it.
It wasn’t until years later that I realized how much valuable information was being shared. I got so caught up in the soap box, cult-like construct that I missed the whole message. I missed the Dreammm! I thought I had to line up and drink the soap box Kool-Aid to get my dream, but I didn’t.
The point to my whole “Amway” babble is this. We all came here to live and experience our dreams our way. Not someone else’s version but our version. It’s our purpose. To manifest the grandest version of our greatest vision. Don’t be afraid to try. Don’t buy into the mind chatter that says can’t. You can do it and you have nothing to lose. Get some ideas off the Internet. Talk to people who are dream-oriented. See what information and ideas are out there. The information you gather will help you get started in building your personal dream path. Something YOU can get excited about.
Dreaming expands your mind and helps you ask better questions. Dreaming allows you to see the world as it could be instead of as it is. Dreaming gives you the ability to understand the majestic connection you are to everything in the world. When you dream, you focus. That focus gives you the ability to recognize the details unfold as your dreams become reality.
All human beings are also dream beings. Dreaming ties all mankind together.
~ Jack Kerouac
Welcome down the rabbit hole of dream possibilities.
