Dreams to reality

Heading off on your journey to success!

In this series we are following the journey of turning your dreams into reality. Many people are surprised to learn that there’s a specific process to make this happen and the effort required is minimal when compared to the results.

This post is a slight diversion, but valuable to explain the process and to provide some grounding and understanding on what we are doing, as well as debunking some of the hype.

Dreams to reality. Perhaps ‘dreams’ is not the right word, as that can connote not being ‘real’. In this context, ‘dreams’ means ‘wants, desires, goals, plans, outcomes’; any word that means working towards something you want badly enough to create a strong emotional link.

You may have heard the expression ‘I will believe it when I see it’ or ‘seeing is believing’. When you work to manifest your dreams this becomes the opposite – ‘I will see it when I believe it’. That requires some faith and self-belief, which is harder than it sounds because it often runs against our lifetime mental programming.

Faith means believing in yourself and your ability to create something. Everything is created twice; first in your mind and then in reality. Let’s look at a fun example to see how it works, because it works for everything.

Lunchtime, you feel hungry and decide you want a sandwich so you ‘visualise’ what you want. You see it in your mind; white bread, chicken, tomato, lettuce and mayonnaise. You go into the kitchen and make it or walk into a shop and buy it.

Easy, because you never doubted your ability to manifest a chicken sandwich. You’ve done it before and it doesn’t require much mental energy. This may seem like a silly example but when we talk about manifesting, attracting abundance, visualising, self-belief, affirmations, putting it out to the universe and the like, this can all sound ‘new agey’ and easy to dismiss out of hand. But if you can understand that you’re turning dreams into reality every day, then the leap to the bigger picture is not as difficult.

I’ve read experts and gurus that make this process out to be mystical, bordering on a religious experience, when it’s simply a common sense process that can be followed. I believe in the power of our subconscious and its ability to help us find a way. Part of this is our ‘self-talk’ – if we tell ourselves ‘I’m hopeless, things never work out for me and I won’t ever achieve this’ then that’s what our subconscious works towards. We ask for it. We get it. It’s a simple process.

Positive self-talk and belief are important when realistically applied to our life and our goals. Have you noticed that successful people are usually positive and energetic? Do you think they became that way because they are successful, or being that way led to their success?

Henry Ford said, ‘Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.’  That sums it up perfectly.

In the next post, we’ll learn the next step in the process of achieving what you desire!
