I think it would be great if everyone had at least one impossible dream. You know the kind of dream I’m talking about – the dream that you would LOVE to come true but you have no idea HOW it would ever happen.
The reason it’s good to have impossible dreams is that it forces you to THINK BIG. It also allows you to take inventory of where you THINK your limits are. Yes, there is a lot of SELF-INQUIRY that happens when you usher in an impossible dream; it’s kind of like a little love-bomb of Louise-Hay-ness.
When I was a kid, my big dream was to be a ROCK STAR. So I played with Jem dolls, took singing lessons and watched Kids Incorporated religiously. Later in life I worked at a major record label (and hung out with the BACKSTREET BOYS, might I add), went to school for music, and recorded a couple of albums.
Did my impossible dream of becoming the world’s next Martika come true??? Not even close. But I don’t regret any of it because the impossible dream was like a carrot that dangled in front of me and guided me through an awesome adventure.
(BTW, now that I look back on my life, I consider it a blessing that I didn’t end up a rock star. I probably would have wound up smoking crack with Courtney Love by the side of some highway in Kentucky.)
I have also learned that the point of big dreams is not necessarily to make them come true, but instead to use them as catalysts to allow a greater amount of LIFE FORCE ENERGY to flow through you.
OK, I see you scrunching up your face like the grinch and yelling “what you talkin’ ‘bout KB???” at your computer screen. So I shall explain.
Anytime you think of something AWESOME that you WANT but haven’t yet acquired or accomplished, you will feel a little tingly. Kind of like watching Johnny Depp in Chocolat, but even better.
This tingly feeling is a signal that you have RAISED YOUR VIBRATION and allowed a greater amount of life force energy to flow through your body. And THIS is what life is all about – aligning with a greater energy field.
Don’t believe me? Let’s try it. May I present to you what my yoga teacher calls, “a feeling study”.
Draw your attention to one of your impossible dreams. For this exercise I will use my impossible dream of appearing in a Tim Burton movie (alongside Johnny Depp, of course).
Ready everybody? OK, close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Now VISUALIZE your impossible dream as if it were a reality. Really get into it. See it, hear it, feel it, touch it, taste it (if Johnny Depp is taking part in this visualization, you may need to EASE OFF a little bit at your own discretion).
What I’m saying is GET INTO IT.
After at least 2 minutes have passed, notice the feeling in your body. Feel a little lighter? A little happier? A little more excited about life?
Congratulations, you have just raised your vibration. This is the point of having an impossible dream.
Of course, this vibrational “high” will wear off after a while, which is why it’s a good idea to keep those impossible dreams in the forefront of your mind at all times.
At which point PHOTOSHOP will really come in handy…
What is YOUR big dream?
