Making the decision to dream big can be a scary endeavor for many people, and yet it’s the exercise that leads us to living a life we absolutely love.
What if we gave ourselves permission to dream beyond our current reality? Where could these thoughts take us? Taking these three steps can help you begin building your dream life.
- Honor your discontent.
Discontent is an important signal from our soul that something bigger is seeking to emerge through us. Give yourself permission to enter and explore the realm of your deep desires. Harness this discontent by letting the dream begin to live in your mind and heart as a true possibility. Notice your body and your emotions. Does the feeling of desire heighten and your sense of aliveness? An expanded feeling of aliveness is an important indicator that you are on the right path.
- Practice repeating “Up until now…” to keep thoughts of your past experience from limiting your possible futures. If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get the results you’ve always gotten. Pause for a moment. You’ll hear the old chatter that dictates every reason for not taking a risk. Listen, then pause. All these negative experiences and disappointments may have been true in the past. Now is the time to shrug them off. Your history does not determine your destiny. All your disappointments and regrets belong to a time that is ending at this moment. In the next moment, let out your yearnings in a first roar of awakening. This is a roar of triumph.
- Consciously co-create with God, and the impossible becomes possible. Co-creation means you partner with Spirit to build the greatest life you can live. When you recognize yourself as a co-creator, you ask for guidance and break through the self-imposed barriers that have stood between yourself and your desires. Begin each new day thanking God and concentrating on a desire of yours that you previously believed was out of reach. Just for that day, act as if what you wanted was possible. Then see what transforms.
Here’s to your BEST LIFE!
