In my last post on meeting your blocks to manifestation, we talked about how problems with your self esteem can rise up and create blocks to manifesting what you want. How that Rotten Little Voice inside can tell you that you’re unworthy, that success is scary, that achieving your dream will just make you unhappy, that your success will hurt other people , and other lies that keep you trapped and unable to live your dreams.

We’ve talked about the Rotten Little Voice in other previous posts, but it also can pop up as an obstacle to maifesting your dreams.

So how can you silence that Rotten Little Voice? How can you improve your self -esteem so it will support you in manifesting your dreams?

Different people need different answers. Because of this, I’m offering an all-you-can-eat-buffet of solutions, so you can pick and chose and fill your plate with what serves you best.

Want some ideas? Try to:

  • Use affirmations to reprogram your unconscious beliefs:
  • Use E.F.T. (Emotional Fredom Technique) – a system of tapping on energy meridians combined with affirmations to clear stick negative beliefs:
  • Spend  more time with people who make you feel good about yourself, and less time with the “dream -killers” who put you down:
  • Use subliminal tapes to feed your unconscious positive feedback while you do other thinsg:
  • Use hypnosis or self-hypnosis to  change your habitual thought patterns;
  • Visualize yourself suceeding at your dream -include emotion, the five senses, you in the viualisation:
  • Spend times remembering the times that you have suceeded, big or small;
  • Do things that make you happy – its harder to put yourself down when you’re happy;
  • Feed your spirit positive things – read positive books, listen to positive music, etc. Limit your exposure to things that tell you that living your dreams is hard or will make you unhappy;
  • Do the gratitude dance – be thankful for the good things already in your life and the things that you have already achieved;
  • Look for role models who have succeeded in the area that you want to succeed in. Learn from them. If them, why not you?  (And if there are no role models in your area, why not you as the first?…)

These are just a few of many methods you can use to get your self -esteem up and dancing, and stop blocking yourself.

And make your dreams come true…

See you soon

We’ve spent quite a bit of time looking at symbolic dreams and how to get the information they bring to us.

But what if you don’t dream? Or don’t remember your dreams?

Full dreams tend to occur during the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) part of sleep. With few exceptions, most people experience REM at least once per sleep cycle (whether that is a full 8 hours or even during many naps), so data indicates that most of us are dreaming on a regular basis.

Many people don’t remember their dreams. Some don’t remember so deeply that they don’t even remember that they have dreamed.

That seems like a kind of impasse there, if you can’t interpret your dreams because you can’t remember them.

There is a way of working with that, though…

First, when you’re planning on interpreting your dreams, be sure you’ve got writing materials (pad and pencil/crayon and sketch pad/ birch bark and quill dipped in crushed berries/whatever floats your boat!) right next to the bed.

(When passing from dreaming to waking state, you come through several different levels of brain waves. If, on top of that, you visit the bathroom, go get a drink, then have to hunt around for something to write on, you might as well kiss that dream goodbye now and save yourself the trouble.)

Then when you’re in bed and drifting off to sleep, tell yourself repeatedly “Tonight, I will dream and I will remember my dream…”

If you sleep alone, you can do this out loud. If you share sleeping quarters, do this silently in your mind (it’ll work just as well).

The silent method is because you don’t want to weird out your sleep buddy, plus it’s far harder to dream if said buddy keeps thumping you with a pillow and saying “Will you hush up?!!!

How does this work? As you pass from full alertness (Beta waves) down through Alpha, Theta and Delta waves, your mind becomes more receptive to suggestions you give yourself. You’re, in effect, retraining your body to remember.

(For the record, this is an extremely simple form of self-hypnosis. If you have questions about that, please feel free to comment or email).

This may work pretty quickly, or it may take more time to work, based on parameters such as how deep you sleep, how receptive you are to your own suggestions, how much your sleep buddy hits you with that pillow, etc.; but the bottom line is that, if you keep doing it, you will begin to remember your dreams.

And, lucky you! You just happen to know how to interpret them…

More fun and games with dreaming on the way..
