I almost forgot about it.  Hard to believe?  Well, not really.  We all have that fear sneak in now and then.  In my mind, I know that I have access to whatever I need whenever I need it.... that I have had the experience of having money show up just at the right time, of the right people showing up to say the right words exactly when I need and can hear them.  In my other mind (that some call their 'heart') where things are softer, more tender, more susceptible to fear [which of course also happens in my mind - how's that for irony?] I falter.  There are things I can do about it.  Talk with others, put up reminders around the house, and read inspiring books instead of watching TV.  I can surround myself with nothing but abundance-affirming information, activities and people.  This doesn't make me less 'human'; it only comes from that human [who is me] exercising her right to choose.

The Number One Dream Killer


Yep. Think about it. You write down your dream in as much detail as you can (it feels good - no, it feels fantastic!) you tell it to a trusted friend (or maybe a few), you start a plan of action to get there...... Then, you begin to talk yourself out of it.

You may say to yourself, 'I don't deserve it.' You might agree with another person's comment that it might be more than you can handle 'right now.' Or you might look at your bank account and just not see the funds to support it. Doubt creeps in, or maybe doubt completely obliterates your dream. These all have happened 'to' me, so I know how it works. The real kicker is that I let it happen... I lost faith in my own dreams, I made the decisions that killed them.

That doubt is your own mental process. You can change the way you think! That's what this dream building business is all about. That's why I do this. You can use you mind/your thoughts to create a reality in which you HAVE what you want as easily as you create the reality in which you don't. Really, it's the same process with a much happier, fulfilling, loving, amazing outcome. I recommend it. :)

Drop the doubt, and pick up possibility!

Don't dream it, be it

This is actually a line from a song from one of my favorite movies:  Rocky Horror Picture Show.  I know, weird how things get caught in our minds.  Like the line from Star Wars "Fear of loss is the path to the dark side."  I'm not saying these two phrases are connected in any way.  I'm just saying that the things that stick in our minds will guide us.  We can gain awareness of our thoughts by sitting still for a minute and listening for them.  How many times a day do you remind yourself of something?  Without even knowing it.
Be who you are.  Part of that is being aware of your thoughts.  Thoughts become emotions and emotions become actions in the world.  Our actions affect not just ourselves, but everyone around us.  Your dreams become your realities.... Engineer them, work with them to produce exactly the life you love.

As some of you may know, I am not the biggest proponent of marriage for anyone.... Straight, gay or otherwise inclined.  I haven't experienced many long term marriages in which both partners are happy and loving toward each other a majority of the time.  At best, most couples in the marriage contract tolerate each other after the first several years and become highly skilled at compromise (never good for the soul). I am always cautiously optimistic when I learn that my friends are getting married and I love how happy they are at their weddings.  If all couples had to stay together for 10 years (a completely arbitrary number; my first instinct was to say 30 years) before they got married, I think there would be a lot fewer divorces.
The celebrations of the first same-sex couples in Minnesota that particularly touch me are those of the couples who have been together for 30+ years.  You gotta know those folks are committed and likely still in love.  The public recognition and legitimacy now afforded these people is marriage should be.  Of course if we made everyone wait 10 years, there might also be fewer children. Which might not be a bad thing either, given the global population problem.  Don't get me started on that...
Sunday morning mind ramblings.....always a crap-shoot.
