SUE MAISANO: “How To Daydream and Achieve Your Goals”

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

~Albert Einstein

 

Daydreaming is like meditation or hypnosis except for that it is more effortless and natural. Done properly, daydreaming can be very effective in helping us achieve our goals.

Your mind and body already know how to get into the zone of daydreaming because you had been doing it unconsciously all the time.

Perhaps when you are driving, the lengthy, repetitive and boring activity sends your mind to a space of peacefulness, or what seems like to be void and silent. With this quieting of the mind, you wander away from daily mundane and goes on a mental exploration. In other words, you started to daydream.

Everybody daydreams, it is human nature.

I had a daydream 15 years ago.

How could I remember a random daydream that long ago you ask? Well, the daydream I had seemed too foolish to me at the time, so it stood out and stuck with me. I remember I had to stop myself on the tracks and put on a mental break to get myself out of the daydream.

As a frustrated Chinese college student who wanted to come to America, I had a lot of worries, one of which was relationship. I didn’t have any relationship problems per se actually, because I had no one to have a relationship with, aka I was a desperate single.

One day as I was randomly strolling the campus on the walkway my mind slips away. Admit this light, glowing and pleasant feeling, I thought maybe I would marry an American guy one day and have a bunch of cute mixes.

I was not sure if I initiated the thought or the thought found me. I felt that the latter was more appropriate. The thought was soft and gentle, and it brought pleasant sensations. I was free from everyday struggles for a few brief seconds while I was bathed in the daydream.

Then my logical thinking kicked in. My inner voice said this was not possible so stop thinking like this and fool yourself. I brought myself out of the daydream by deciding to focus on something more “practical”.

Nevertheless, that daydream was realized years later, against all odds.

Many inventions, scientific breakthroughs and writings were conceived in the daydream like state.

Einstein came up with the Special Theory of Relativity in daydreams. His saying that “Imagination is more important than knowledge” further testifies the importance of imagination and daydreaming.

Edison kept a small bed in his office where he daydreamed about his next inventions. If not for his immense creativity the world might still be a “dark” place.

And as your mind and body grow accustomed to a certain amount of sleep each night — six hours, seven, maybe the recommended eight — so can you train your waking mind to sleep creatively and work out the vividly imagined waking dreams which are successful works of fiction.”

You see, great minds recognize the importance of imagination and daydream to bring out creativity as well as accomplish personal goals.

How to use daydreaming to reach your goals?

Daydreaming is a state of being that we naturally go through each day. You can choose to purposefully daydream and raise your vibrations. When you daydream, you somewhat detach from the physical and access higher planes where energies can manifest into physical existence. You start to tap into the source where physical realities spring from. In other words, you become more creative.

Practicing entering the daydream space purposefully will help you draw closer what you desire. Here are a few steps to help you initiate and deepen your daydream abilities:

1. Find a quiet space.

Daydreaming is a type of “dream” so treat it like a dream. When you go to sleep each night, you put on your soft pajamas, retreat to your bed, cover yourself with warm blankets, and turn off the light. You close your eyes and side aside the day’s happenings.

You drop deeper and deeper into sleep where dreams may occur. You do it at each night at around the same time, same place, same procedures that it’s almost like a ritual. Similarly, with a daydream you need a quiet space, especially a quiet mental space where you can safely set aside the daily mundane.

Find a time and place where you won’t be constantly interrupted. Maybe take a short walk in the woods or on a trail. Maybe use the mental space in the soothing shower in the morning. Maybe it’s a place in your house where you feel comfortable for your daily daydreaming. Wouldn’t be a bad idea to daydream first when you go to bed each night.

2. Let go of logical thinking.

Sometimes you dream of your deceased relatives, but in that dream it may not occur to you that your relative had already passed. Sometimes in your dream you have a completely different identity than what you are in your waking hours. However, the dream self does not question its own validity.

It’s because your logical thinking is in suspension when you are in a dream. You are free from your logical restrictions. Your imagination grows wings when you dream. Similarly, when you daydream, suspend your logical thinking. Einstein said: “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

If your logical thinking is interfering with your daydream you certainly are restricted and won’t be able to access the Universal energy with unlimited potential. In fact, you won’t even be able to daydream if you cannot let go of your logical thinking for even a brief moment.

Of course that is not to deny the power of your logical thinking at other times. What you need to practice on is to let go of logical thinking when you intent to do so. It’s a mental discipline to direct your will.

3. Let go of expectations.

After your daydream, carry out your daily activities as if nothing had happened. Don’t become obsessed with what you daydreamed about. When you do the actual daydreaming, you are delivering your message to the Universe. The Universe is always hearing and responding, and it initiates motion, which may not be visible on the physical plane, towards manifestations of your dream.

Let go of expectations is to allow it to happen and is perhaps the hardest part of bringing your daydream to reality. For everything we do we tend to cast our bet, our preferences of how things should go. If things go our way we are happy, if things are going against us we are worried. Our emotions are greatly controlled by what’s happening outside of us. We truly become a victim with no control.

We entangle ourselves in the process of creation and block the process of manifestation. What we are doing is to compare the outside happenings with what we hold in our expectations and we see this discrepancy. We then mess the process of creation with our negative emotions, further pushing our dream reality away from us.

It’s a downward spiral. With letting go of expectations we lose the comparison. Then the outside happenings become neither good nor bad because we don’t cast our bets, our preferences. This level of letting go allows the Universal energy to proceed naturally without any restrictions.

Then all of a sudden, when you are least expecting it your dream become a reality in a magical way! By then you might have already forgot that once you daydreamed about it. Such is the beauty of letting go of expectations.

Now you have it, three steps to bring your daydream to reality. Find a quiet space, let go of logical thinking, and let go of expectation. Which one do you think is the easiest? Which one do you think is the hardest part? Can you let go, even just a little bit? What are you daydreaming today?

MICHELLE MAXWELL: “‘Are You A Good Ghost Or A Bad Ghost?’ — How To Banish Troublesome Household Entities”

I’m a natural ‘ghostbuster’ and never have to worry… my home is always a sacred space without interference. If I want contact I will initiate it… otherwise it’s “Buzz off, Jack!” 👻

Let’s face it, sensing an uninvited presence in one’s home is never a pleasant revelation. We invest a great deal in our homes — financially, personally, and even spiritually — so it’s a bit of an unpleasant surprise to find an additional “guest” at our table.

However, many spectral entities leave remnants of themselves in the world of the living, and more often than not are no cause for concern. Some even provide protection and assistance when we least expect it!

The flip-side, however, is that there are indeed malevolent entities that can take up residence in one’s home and cause a great deal of annoyance, if not pain and outright misfortune. At first it can be hard to differentiate between the two, as it often takes awhile for spectral evidence to mount. Misplaced personal items, broken appliances, and bothersome noises may seem innocent enough or go undetected for weeks or even months before proving otherwise.

So how can you know if your ghostly tenant is worth keeping around or evicting? For starters, pay attention to the signs. Not all entities leave overt evidence of their presence, but you can usually detect subtleties: cold spots in various parts of the house/apartment, the feeling of being watched, and little shifts in the placement of household objects. Pets will often act agitated or avoid going into certain spaces, while some will growl or bark at a pointed spot when seemingly nothing is there.

Conversely, the manifestations may be more severe. You or members of your household may start getting sick for no apparent reason, or become ill-tempered. Appliances may break down and, in extreme instances, objects may be thrown about or smashed. An overall feeling of doom may linger over the place, evoking feelings of fear and despair.

Once you’ve assessed the evidence, you can decide what steps to take from there. If you are fortunate enough to sense that the presence in your home is innocuous enough — if not benevolent — then you needn’t do much to appease them. Simply going about your business and allowing them to go about theirs is usually enough. If you want to make an “official” gesture of acknowledgement and welcome, you can set out fresh flowers or keep a votive candle lit in a part of the home where the spirit is most often felt. If there are particular offerings you feel the presence would like, by all means leave them out as well. Less-is-more gestures are generally preferred by elementals, as excessive attention can disrupt their natural vibrations.

If you feel your household entity is of a more malicious sort, then you will need to take the necessary precautions as soon as possible. Please note: if these steps do not take effect within a week or so, a professional may need to be consulted. Certain energies can be extremely dangerous, and only experienced and reputable practitioners should be called upon to deal with them. If you feel your efforts are not proving successful then do not put your safety at risk!

That said, even less pleasant entities can often be dealt with by employing a few simple DIY measures. Before you do anything else, it is crucial to purify or “smudge” your space. Using sage or palo santo, go from room to room at least once a day and thoroughly seal the windows, corners, and doorways with the smoke. This will immediately cleanse the space and drive away unpleasant energies. You may need to do this as often as it takes before the presence recedes completely.

Crystal gridding has also been proven effective in ridding a home of unwanted energies, as well as barricading against future assaults. There is a wealth of information available on crystal gridding, and it’s advisable to check online or at your local bookstore to find the best selection and layout for your situation. Black tourmaline, smokey quartz, selenite, and amethyst are among the most popular stones used for protection and reinforcement.

A more labor-intensive endeavor may involve doing some research on your home. While certain entities can attach themselves to individuals, following them wherever they go, others are bound to a specific place for a specific reason. If you live in a home with a researchable history, it may be worth your while to see what you uncover. This will also prove beneficial for any professionals you seek the assistance of.

What you absolutely SHOULD NOT do in the circumstances listed above is attempt to use any occult items in which you have no experience or understanding of. Real psychics devote decades to implementing these tools in their work, and a troubling number of cases have been reported where amateur misuse resulted in permanently disastrous results.

Ultimately, your intuition is your best tool when determining the nature of a spiritual presence in your home.

Our fears and imaginations can and do play tricks on us, and often turmoil in one’s personal life can impose itself on the places inhabited most intimately. Try to approach your situation with honesty and a sound mind, and once again, do not hesitate to call in a professional if you feel you are in over your head.

ADEANA M. SLATER: “Fear Is Your Worst Enemy”

“Your higher self is nudging you along on the pathway you have chosen for yourself and desired to do before incarnation. That’s why it’s best to go with the flow of this intuitive guidance and don’t fight against this energy.”

~Adeana Slater

 

I’ve been guided to talk about fear because this seems to be the biggest collective hold-up. The fear of change. How can you desire change? You are unsure of your intuitive guidance YET so this fear has a grip on you. I will tell you that fear is the biggest illusion manifested in this 3D consciousness that has held all of you captive and you feel trapped into this same cage that was initially manifested by you. And do you expect someone to rescue you from this same karmic mess you wiling entangled yourself with?

The answer is NO. No one is here to be your knight in shining armor. This can both SAVE both the Masculine and Feminine energies. No one can “save” you but yourself. We are closing the doors to the 3D ways of thinking and behaving. This means no one else is accountable for you. You can no longer point the finger and desiring it to only be in your favor. The blame game has stopped. The victim role has stopped. These actions are all lower vibrational energy that had to transmute and be released for the New Earth energy.

Fear is nothing except the power you give it. It’s actually all an illusion. A program to deter you from your chosen path. And we can bring in intuitive guidance and we can rehash the energy norms that I’ve had talked about before. It’s all interconnected. I think the difference is that it still is a choice to uplift yourself and release everything that no longer serves you. This choice and decision you make to go with the flow and listen/follow your intuitive guidance to change for the better, will only make life easier and better for YOU.

The energy bombarding Earth is to help assist in bringing this change forward. Resistance will just make everything harder. The Collective has agreed for and asked for this change. So it is here!! The energy brings the awareness to you what needs to be removed. It’s up to you to do the work to actually remove it. However if you don’t, this situation will continue to aggravate you in intensity until you do. This seems forceful, but you are not urged to do anything that is not for your highest good and for the highest good of all involved. You will not be pushed into change that is not good for you. Your higher self is nudging you along on the pathway you have chosen for yourself and desired to do before incarnation. That’s why it’s best to go with the flow of this intuitive guidance and don’t fight against this energy.

Fear is manifested and will stop you in your tracks completely if you allow it. And guess what? This fear you are sending out will only manifest fear of the same. And if this specific fear IS change itself, than you will be pushed out of this seeming comfort zone that you are fearing to change. Do you see how energy can work positively for and against you? Do you see that you are responsible for all of these changes? Based on your action or reaction to energy itself?!! You must become intuitive and also feel no fear. I know that’s a big gigantic step for you. But it truly goes hand in hand.

You will be intuitively guided to take a big gigantic step into your new soul path. It will take courage beyond belief to do this. And with this energy, you are asked to smash through any fears or illusions that are stopping you to do so and for being ALL that you desire to be.

Reach higher. STILL And always.

Love to YOU. ❤

SUSAN VIVYAN: “Thoughts And Words Are So Important”

Watch your words carefully as they carry more power than you realize. Many are becoming aware of the power of thoughts, words and are more discerning in their choices. Yes, it is a choice moment by moment. More immediate results than you realize.

It is via stillness, meditation, concentration, awareness that you become aware of the power of your thoughts; words leading to actions. When one is the observer in the 3rd person and not immersed in the drama of their own making a wiser perspective emerges. Greater understanding with more discernment guides daily choices. The inner reflects the outer and more discretionary decisions are made.

One can still be very present, live in the moment; however, the focus of an aware life is more refined like sand which slowly and gently flows through your fingers with little abrasive quality.

Listen to the words of others but more importantly discern your own thoughts and words. Become a detached observer with no judgment or criticism. Allow corrections to your thought patterns and/or actions to be done with gentleness and softness.

Treat yourself with respect. Embrace your imperfections. Allow growth to emerge with constant nurturing and self-love. Focus on your thoughts, your words. Refine your choices.

You are important!
