As we continue with Doorway 11, we come to the topic of Dreams and Wishes. This is the inner doorway to expanding your horizons through conscious dreams and down-to-earth wishes. On the opposite side of the map, at Doorway 5, you develop your passions and desires. Those desires inform your dreams and wishes for things that may be beyond your physical capability to create. This is the fertile ground of imagination that often includes other people and circumstances beyond your control.
Dreams and wishes are less mundane than intentions but are using the same principles. When you dare to imagine something that makes your spirit dance, you know you are on to something. The important thing with dreams is to give yourself permission to expand your mind and let your heart be part of it, too.
Dreams are fuel for living. They power you up, inspire you, and activate your latent gifts. Sometimes there’s no limit to what you’ll do to bring a dream to life. Sometimes dreams languish in our hearts and never see the land of the living. Some of us live in our dreams and some of us dream our lives into being.
Every invention or gadget, principal or process, was birthed in the land of dreams. It was a spark in someone’s being that was brought to life. Whether it’s flying or electricity, computers or cell phones, someone’s dreams changed your world. However you navigate the world beyond time and space, it is a powerful force to create change not only for you but for everyone.
Many of us had big dreams when we were young. Life happens and other things can take precedence. However, it’s a good practice to revisit some of those old dreams, and see if they still speak to you. Is there something you had your heart set on, that you’d still like to make happen? The dreams that still hold magic for you are likely the ones that help connect you to more of who you really are.
With dreams and wishes, and intentions, for that matter, you do not have to know how things will unfold. The only thing you need to know is what you prefer.
Goddess of Now
The Goddess of Now says dreams and wishes are glimpses into more of your true nature. Giving yourself time to daydream and imagine yourself in different scenarios can open your eyes to wonderful new possibilities. Pay attention to those moments when you hear yourself say, “I wish…” Regardless of what prompted them, you’ll have a clear idea of what you prefer, deep down inside, and that can be very helpful.
The Goddess says you are never too old or too tired to dream. You can dream while you sleep! Allow yourself to explore your imagination and dream big! You might be surprised at what they can bring you.
