LETTING YOUR DREAMS BE YOUR INSPIRATIONS

Ramona welcomed members and guests and asked the group to share their wins.

Eddie Conner provided another inspiring meditation.  And a BIG THANK YOU to Eddie for always providing wonderful meditations for our group.

The opening video was “Receiving the Gift of your Inspirations” by Abraham Hicks. 

Ramona started the discussion by asking “Who has had a dream come true?” And “Who has dreams that haven’t come true?”. 

Sometimes our dreams don’t come true because we have doubts and contradictions. It’s like having a train with two engines, but one is on the back of the train pulling in the opposite direction. Conflicting thoughts create fear, habit and insecurity because we are not thinking thoughts about what we want.  We are focused on thoughts about what we have, what is.  These are thoughts that don’t serve our purpose.

What happens when we share our dreams with the wrong people? Typically, they tell us every reason our dream won’t come true. It waters down our desires, dreams and goals. When someone tries to tell us why our dream won’t come true, remember to say to yourself “I DON’T CARE!” to release their negativity.

The same is true when we find ourselves telling our story over and over.  Everything we experience is an indication of our being, or NOT being, in alignment. The feeling of alignment has these characteristics:
         That we are in the flow.
         It feels good.
         Appreciation.
         Gratitude.
         Happiness.

As an example,  close your eyes and think of a dream you’ve had for a while.  It hasn’t happened yet…maybe you’ve given up on the dream. It’s like holding a glass of water. For a short time, it doesn’t feel heavy. But after a while, it can feel quite heavy.  The weight of the glass hasn’t changed.  The same is true of our dreams.  Holding on to them will weigh us down and generate other like-minded thoughts.
Some examples of limiting thoughts are:
         I’m not skinny.
         It’s too hard.
         I have bad luck.
         They’ll be jealous of me.
         I’m not smart enough.

So, how do we make our dreams come true? Make a plan but start general, e.g. “I plan to feel good today”. Plan to be in a place where ideas flow easily.  The better we feel, the more effective and better feeling every plan will be.  Then pay attention to emotions.  When they dip down, catch them, rebalance, take deep breaths, meditate, go outside for a breath of fresh air, take a walk.  Continue these activities as needed. Letting go of resistant thoughts will place us in the receiving mode.

Be ready to be ready. Take 15 minutes a day.  Reconnect, meditate, do something to quiet the mind.  The more we do it daily, the more we will be able to say “I’m ready to be ready.”  Ideas will flow.  We are not facing reality…we’re creating it.  And it all starts with getting ourselves into alignment.

The closing video was “Rampage – I like Feeling Good” by Abraham Hicks.
