What Is Your Dream?

Whatever you dream, dream big!

A few years ago I was in the Amazon Jungle, staying with a tribe in Equador called the Achuar.

This trip with the Pachamama Alliance was like a dream come true!

The Achuar are what is know as a “dream culture” they ’see’ things in their dreams at night which pre-inform the days, weeks, months, even years ahead.

This is fascinating for anyone who has ever dreamt something, and then found it to actualise- these people in this part of the World live this way!

Their dreams are upheld with the upmost authority and we were also advised to begin to keep a pen and paper by our bedsides, so we could recall our dreams and interpret them for ourselves, recognising themes, patterns or signals that come to us whilst we are in that altered state of consciousness known as sleep!

I suggest you can do the same, what do you say?

Action Step: I would love to hear about your dreams, and your dreams in the sense of your waking dreams also- your ‘goals’ if you like!

It really is amazing the power of writing these goals down, I came across a list I had written 12 months ago during a recent clear out and could not believe how much of it I had achieved- so try it!

Write down just one or two and see how it goes for you!

Even better, why not share them and “go public” with your dreams…

I love these 2 quotes about dreams,

The first is by D.H. Lawrence, it reminds us that we are alive and have the power to do things with our lIves!

It is exciting that he uses the words “dangerous people” I like to think that people who are awake are indeed ‘dangerous’ to the systems and intitutions that are out of date, out of integrity, and out of alignment.

I think we may also be ‘dangerous’ to the “status quo” that want us to settle down and not question and challenge authority or push the boundaries!

The second quote is lovely, and so rhythmic- you’ll know immediately why I love it…

“All people dream, but not equally.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind,
Wake in the morning to find that it was vanity.
But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people,
For they dream their dreams with open eyes,
And make them come true.”

D.H.Lawrence
“My mind wants to interpret
All my dreams.
My heart wants to love
All my dreams.
My soul wants to fulfil
All my dreams”
