Daydream into Reality
As adults, we rarely daydream anymore — or dream at all, for that matter.
At some point during your adulthood (or childhood, sadly) you were told to stop dreaming, to face reality, to be realistic, etc.
Among a multitude of other topics, the book Ask and It Is Given has reawakened the excitement for daydreaming. The author did not call it daydreaming, however; instead, they used the term “Virtual Reality” also known in the manifestation practice as visualization. The practice of manifestation is something I have tried to analyze, understand, and apply for a few years. It was not until the art visualization that I truly felt the connection to spirit and feeling oneness with the vibration of my dreams.
Visualization goes something like this:
- Become a director, a film maker — set the scene in your head. Choose the characters (you being the main character).
- Pick the ideal situation. Maybe you’re in the interview process of a new job: imagine yourself at that job, getting up in the morning for that job, your commute, your daily protocol, etc. Romanticize it.
- Close your eyes and feel this scene: taste the coffee that you drink before your commute, feel the sun on your cheeks as you walk into your office, see your beautiful view from your new window. Really sit and feel it in every sense that you can imagine. When you feel good, whole, warm — that’s when you know it’s working.
This can work for anything you’d like to achieve. In doing so, you are matching your current vibration with the vibration of actually experiencing that reality. You are feeling that experience as if it is happening right now. This tactic is the one that really resonates with me in where I can actually feel what it’s like to experience my desire.
If anything, it feels good, and the better you feel, the easier you will find that these desires will flow to you with ease.
I did this on a flight to an interview. In my seat, I closed my eyes and imagined myself at this job I was interviewing for. From my breakfast in the morning, down to getting home at night, I envisioned my daily while having this job. I couldn’t help but smile and be proud of my accomplishments. A month later, I’m in the lab doing the job I visualized, and I’m loving it.
Even if you feel as if you have no control, use this exercise to feel in control (because you are). Create your dream reality, sit in it, and watch it unfold into this dimension.
