I often imagine I’m levitating. I dream that I will live forever, in a beautiful harmonious world full of magic and wonder.
Unfortunately I am not yet able to fly, and although my little segment of the world is pretty good, it definitely isn’t paradise. However, when I focus on my magnificent dreams, I experience some very beneficial side effects.
When I imagine myself to be unconstrained by the limits of this physical world, I experience, without fail, a boost in energy and a surge of inspiration. I feel motivated, capable and confident in my abilities. This in turn leads to happiness and success in whatever I am doing.
Actually achieving the ultimate dream then becomes less relevant, because it has already benefited me in the here and now. I may spend time visualising mystical realms of indescribable peace and beauty, but it is the calm clear mind and feeling of love that remains after the visualisation that is important.
Whether you dream of world domination, or holding your breath for an hour and diving down to the bottom of the ocean, there is a tremendous power in indulging your dreams. Not because they might come true (although believing in your dreams is the first step in making them a reality!), but because getting in touch with the things that light up your heart brings so much inspiration, joy, clarity and confidence.
I have used this technique personally to overcome mental fogginess and apathy many many times. It has also played a part in overcoming my struggles with depression and anxiety, along with a lot of other help, support, self-love, medication and therapy. It is just one of many useful strategies I have picked up, but it definitely plays a significant part for me in cultivating happiness and moving my life in the right direction.
So if you have a weird and wonderful dream, please don’t feel like entertaining it is a waste of time. Maybe it’s achievable, maybe it isn’t… but believing in it may just make your journey smoother and more enjoyable. Enjoy all of the successes your dream brings you along the way, and gradually loosen all of the limitations you have imposed on yourself, until you are truly living in a world where dreams come true!
