Work Your Dream!

“You gotta have a dream to have a dream come true,” so the song says. But, it’s not enough to have this wondrous vision tucked under our ribs clinging close to our heart. We need to work it! Not just when it's easy to do but all the time. Especially in those moments when we feel the world is fighting against us and our dreams. Really how rude of the Universe!

But think about this, our thoughts create the reality around us and attract the same vibrations back to us. So we need to create thoughts of what we want not what we don’t want.

Why am I bringing this up? Because as writers, we spend most of our time alone in the private world that we create and drift in and out of our dreams. We are lucky creatures that we can do that. That’s who we are. We are creators of dreams. But sometimes we question and doubt ourselves whether we are on the right path. That's the moment when we find ourselves riding a wild horse known as obstacles. We can ride him easy with a light touch thrilling in the moment with our hearts pounding or gripping hard with our hands and legs afraid to breathe fearing the impending fall.

The point I’m trying to make is no matter where we are in life there are going to be those high flings and bumps along the way. By controlling our thoughts, we can create a better outcome. Don’t you think?

I’m sharing this animation not only because it’s beautiful, but because there’s a hidden message worth discovering.

What do you do when riding your wild horse?

Till next time,

PS: The painting is mine and it's called "Dreaming of You."

I enjoy reading posts that analyze and encourage the creative process. Thanks for sharing your views. I agree, it's an amazing gift we can bring our dreams to life on paper. I'll share a link to one of my favorite creativity coaching sites, by Dan Goodwin.

Thank you Marsha, and you're right we do have an amazing gift. We need to honor that gift given to us.

Thanks for the link.

Thanks for the great post, Elizabeth,

It's very timely for me because I feel that one of my writing dreams is so close at the moment I can almost reach out and touch it. I know I have to keep focussed and not let those 'doubting voices' intrude.

Love your painting. You are so talented

I am thrilled that your dream is so close that you can almost touch it. It's said that once the universe knows your intention/ dream it wants to run to you with arms open wide. So yes, don't lose your focus. Your dream is running to you.

I am so exicited Dee by your news. Double woohoo!

That was beautiful. And your painting is too. Liked so much your thoughts about bringing dreams to reality by your thought processes.

Mrs. Seraphina,

Thank you.

I like to share with you a book I found particulary useful. "Choices and Illusions" by Eldon Taylor. And there is a wonderful CD program called "Genius Mind," by
