Do you ever find yourself daydreaming?
Maybe you dream of your future home, trips or retreats you want to take, or perhaps it’s having an hour to yourself? Maybe you dream of having a particular group of friends, the ideal relationship, the perfect work environment, or time with your family?
My toddler, Sophia, often catches me as my focus drifts into the distance (usually at our house). She asks, “Mama, are you dreaming again?” “Yes, I am sweetheart!”
I’m dreaming of how we’ll beautify our home and make more space for loved ones. I’m dreaming about gatherings with strong, heart-centered women, trainings to come, and adventures with family. I’m appreciating what I have and imagining my evolving reality.
Some think of daydreaming as a lack of presence; I think of it as deep listening.
Daydreaming is an access point to inspiration and guidance. The dreams feel good, and that which feels good is in harmony with who you are. The musing imagery shows you what you’re meant to create, what will light you up, and what your soul needs.
The gift of daydreams is that they are not filtered by money stories, what others will think, or what’s “realistic.” It’s thinking big without the pressure of “thinking big.”
The moment you choose to believe that daydreams are pictures of your future reality, they become visions. You must step into them before you know the way. It’s often exciting and scary. If the images hold strong, you must too, so you step forward again.
All of my most fulfilling ventures have come from reoccurring daydreams. They continually visit until it feels like I have no choice but to actualize them, usually with little to no roadmap.
If you ever find yourself daydreaming about being with strong, heart-centered women, slowing down to access the wisdom of your being, learning more about the body you live in and how to co-create your life, then we share a vision.
If it excites you in any way, this is for you. Skootch your rationale aside, make space for “I wonder how this could work?” and step into the vision.
Whatever you dream of repetitively, honor it. It’s showing up for a reason. Dare to step toward it. Trust in the visions that come to you–they’re for you!
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Howard Thurman
