“The universe is always dreaming bigger things for you than you can imagine.”
The thought rose out of my meditation. It floated into my mind as gently as fog lifting off a river in the morning sun.
When coaching at Choices, there are two team captains whose role is to support the coaching team and focus them on the task at hand. Part of what they do is to remind the team members of their strengths and gifts, and to support them in letting go of the things that hold them back from giving their best to the group.
Between Choices and the two additional weekend sessions of Givers 1 and 2, trainees and coaches return for over the following two to three months after Choices, the team captains put out a coach’s email challenge inviting the team to share their experiences from coaching, and to examine an aspect of their beliefs/behaviours that was illuminated throughout the week of Choices.
This time, the team captain’s asked people to share, if they are willing, one dream they felt stirring that they were going to take action on now.
Dreams are funny things for me.
I fear dreaming, or at least fear articulating my dreams.
It’s that old core belief thingie. Somewhere within me is a voice that likes to stomp on my dreams with its chatter about how stupid I am to dream, how people will think I’m silly, or call me ‘stuck-up’ and all sorts of other vile things that are not true, but are said with such convincing fervor, I give into their demands that I not dream — big or small.
Those are childhood voices that do not serve me well today, but still, they creep in with their insidious insistence they have the right to limit my capacity to dream big and live large.
This mornings centering thought in the 21-day meditation challenge I am participating in is: “I turn my belief into actions.”
Which lead me to wonder, if I fear dreaming, or simply don’t believe in my dreams, what am I turning into action?
Good question. I wonder if my fear of dreaming holds me back from connecting to the dreams the Universe holds true for me? I wonder if fulfilling on my dreams is the path to experiencing all the Universe has for me?
What about you? Do you have a big dream you don’t like to illuminate in fear it will be squashed, ridiculed, scoffed at? Are you afraid of dreaming?
