One question I always ask every one of my clients is “what does your dream life look like?” And 99.9% of the time, they can’t answer it.
Suddenly becoming aware of the fact that they don’t have a clear vision of what they want their future to look like can bring on all the feels. Sadness, embarrassment and shame to name a few.
But here’s the thing. Dreaming came naturally to us as children but once we started school, the dreaming was no longer encouraged. Instead we were taught “how” to think. We were told what the world expected of us and were rewarded when we did and said what we were supposed to.
As we got older, the pressures of life got heavier. Our free time began to disappear and any spare moments were used to take a breath before we had to face our responsibilities yet again.
So the fact that you feel like you’ve lost the ability to dream isn’t your fault.
It was a skill that wasn’t encouraged so like anything left unpracticed, the ability went away.
Here’s a simple way to open yourself up to thinking about creating something more fulfilling in your life right now (no need to stretch it to your DREAM LIFE, just yet)
This is such an easy way to begin the process of opening yourself up to dreaming again because our brains are wired to seek out negativity so by identifying what isn’t working and then asking yourself what you’d like to experience instead, you can begin to slowly wake up your ability to dream from its long, deep sleep.
