Catching Up With My Dreams

Photo

 

I have been on the receiving end of Notes From The Universe for years; the brain and heart-child of Mike Dooley who opens his mind and allows for messages to come through. It is what I do as well; when Spirit speaks, I take dictation, calling myself God’s Typist at times.

When I find Mike’s missives in my in-box or on Facebook, I scoop them up like the precious treasures that they are, since I know for sure that they were meant for me….well, me and half a million other people who have signed up for them since its inception. This one tickled me when I caught it today and beckoned to be invited to the Bliss Blog. How could I refuse?

This is an exercise I engage in on a daily basis. On the way into my office where I provide counseling for folks in recovery from addictions, I am plotting and planning what needs to be accomplished in addition to sitting with them as we explore the strengths and challenges they face. Paperwork, payroll entries, insurance authorizations, consulting with co-workers, making phone calls, scheduling appointments. Many are already ‘done’ in my head by the time I have made the 20-some minute commute. It gives me some nebulous sense of control over various areas of my life. When I am conjuring up creative ideas for articles, workshops and presentations, I apply the same principles. I imagine (not just visualize) the best possible outcome and see, taste, touch, smell and hear it as it generally unfolds as I have pre-created it. I wonder though, is the scenario already in existence and I just ‘catch up’ with it? Are some things ordained and some things random and free will oriented? My mental jury is still out on that one.

When I have uh oh, trepiditious feelings about things that are uncertain, the ‘should I or shouldn’t I?’ voice kicks in and I am once again that kid standing on the edge of the high dive wondering how deep the water is and if there are rocks, snakes, sharks or alligators waiting for me to take the plunge. I can’t back down, since there is a line behind me. What is there to do, since I don’t want to remain paralyzed with fear?  There was a time when I did just that; to mix metaphors here, I was a deer caught in the headlines when it came to making decisions. These days, once again, I envision and then embody the Highest Good outcome and it too usually plays out. I take a full breath and then a brave leap and I am airborne and splish splash into the receptive waters. Good thing that I worked as a lifeguard in my late teens and early twenties! I paddle through some pretty deep emotional waters; refusing to wade on the surface (what fun is that?).

Each day, as I (mostly) blissfully see my way clear to what I desire, release it to a benign and generous Universe that has my good in mind and then allow my body to catch up with my dreams~
