Take Control Of Your Dream World

womansleeoBy Guest Blogger Te-Erika Patterson

Have you ever been deeply immersed in a dream that overwhelms you emotionally?

You may feel stuck and unable to control the happenings in your “awake” state and you can’t believe you are experiencing the same things in your dream world.

You can take back some of the control in your dream world by training yourself to experience a lucid dream. Lucid dreams are simply dreams that you experience while asleep, however, in your dream state you have complete control over what happens.

How do you do that? Well, if you can, when you’re dreaming you have to understand and recognize that you are dreaming. Once you realize that you are dreaming you have to use your power to change the dream to what you want it to be. You can do this. All you have to do is make up in your mind, while dreaming, that you want a different experience.

Lucid dreaming is fun because when you get the hang of it, you’ll look forward to going to sleep at night. You can travel to far away places, fly, say what you always wanted to say and kill the boogey man if you want to because you realize that you have all the power. You can also visit other lucid dreamers and hang out or talk.

When you’re about to go to bed tonight, try to relax before you go to sleep. Say aloud to yourself, “I am in full control of my dream world and it will be whatever I want it to be.”

Your power is in your consciousness, and I’m not talking about your “awake” state. I’m talking about the recognition that your life, while dreaming or awake is fully under your power.

We see what we want to see. What is your dream world made of? If you don’t like it, you can change it. The power is within you.

Tip 21: How To Be An Alphanista

womaneyesYou are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”–CS LEWIS

Ever had a dream that happened but didn’t quite happen like you thought?  Or a dream that is taking entirely too long to come to pass?  Years are going by, and you’re still dreaming, painting pretty pictures in your head and nothing is moving.  What to do?  Create a new dream.  Scratch the old ones.  Anything you are too attached to won’t happen because you are too close to it.

When you are too close to a dream you hold on to that energy and don’t let it out to bring your dreams back to you.  I know, I know.  It’s all metaphsyics.  Notice when you “forget” about something you lose you find it?  Such is life.

What just popped in my head was seeing some older folks, saddened and lonely, still holding on to their dreams and what could have been.  It’s quicksand and before you know it, you’re all the way in and so stuck that you become a memory of yourself.  So, like an Alphanista,  and always an alpha female, look at those dreams that seem stagnate, and create new ones.  In order to give something life, it has to “die”.  Never be afraid to let go, and press “play” again.  It’s called reinvention.

How do you create new dreams?

1) Get rid of the old ones, whether you burn them, toss them into the sea or simply rip them up, just do it.  It’s sad, you’ll cry, and you’ll get over it.

2)  The next day, start flipping those magazines for photos or start writing out new dreams for>>>marriage, money, career, health, etc.

3)  Set a place for your new dreams.  Whether it’s a box, under your bed, or in a journal, keep them in a sacred place and every now and then pray over them, and take a look at your life, and see if it will be dream come true or a dream revised.
