Taking steps in the direction of our dreams can begin a process that resembles embarking on a home remodeling project. First, we have the desire to improve or accomplish something. Our dream generates enthusiasm, playfulness, creativity and action. Our vision compels us to set out on the great adventure of making that dream a physical reality, with only our ideals to inspire our course.
Once we set the process of change into motion by acting on our intention to express or manifest this new aspect of ourselves, we stir up dust. Our personal relationships begin to reflect the changes to which we are opening. We let go of the old, and allow room for our new creation. The journey is akin to tearing down the drywall in order to replace the plumbing. As we venture through our personal upgrade, we may run into snags that leave us feeling over-extended, over-time, and over-budget. We can feel discouraged when we find ourselves in the midst of a construction site, having destroyed that which does not support us, but not yet seeing the improvements that inspired us into motion in the first place.
This is the moment when faith propels our success. This is the time to look at that picture that we initially envisioned. It is not the time to stop renovating. We must recall the specifics of our dream, as well as why it matters to us to express our heart’s desires. Renewed commitment at this juncture carries us to the fulfillment of our intention. Once our dream has been attained, we set a new standard that moves us beyond our previous situation.
In the end, choosing to manifest our dreams improves our quality of life as it inspires us to live fully. And it prepares us for our next remodel…
