“When all you have is dreams, then you have everything”
This is the first line of the chorus of an Acoustic Rainbow song titled “You are the Light of Love”.
Like many of the band’s songs, it’s far from a throwaway line as it contains a message to guide the listener to a more fulfilling and joyful life! So lets take a closer look…
At first sight the chorus line may appear to be wrong- if all you’ve got is dreams then you ain’t really got very much, have you sunshine!?
It reminds me of Seasick Steve’s wonderful title- “I started out with nothing and I’ve still got most of it left!” However, just like Steve’s title, it is in fact a statement of positivity. Here’s why.
If you focus on your dream and keep visualising it happening then you are bringing it to you.
If you can think positively about it most of the time it will eventually manifest in your life. What you focus on in your mind the universe will give you via the law of attraction.
Look around the room you are in. Everything in there started out as somebody’s thought – the chair you’re sitting on, the internet device you are reading this blog on, the internet itself, the table you are sitting at etc etc….
The Power of the sub-conscious mind
Everything came from an initial thought that somebody eventually changed into a physical thing. This is how the universe is wired up- to respond to thoughts. So, it’s very important to have a dream (your ideal thought) and to revisit it often.
As Richard Rogers wrote in the lyric for “Happy Talk” from the movie “South Pacific”, “You’ve got to have a dream, if you don’t have a dream, how are you gonna have a dream come true?”. Precisely!
Even Captain Sensible understood it! Or did he? Anyway, a great time to do this is when you are about to fall asleep at night. As you are in that half awake/half asleep moment, picture your dream in as much detail as possible and try to feel as if it has already materialised, then fall asleep. Your subconscious mind will then carry on promoting your dream while you are asleep!
It’s like a freebie working on your behalf for 8 hours!
So, getting back to the song lyric!
What this line is really saying is that, once you understand the principles of manifesting what you want in your life, then you can literally dream anything into existence.
- A new car,
- Your ideal partner, m
- More money,
- Better health and wellbeing and so on
All can be acquired by the same method so you truly do have access to everything. Sounds too good to be true? Try it for yourself, starting with a relatively small request before you move up to larger manifestations.
The universe doesn’t differentiate between big and little requests, but your mind does, thereby hindering the process. So start with a small ask, for example, a certain type of flower or fruit to manifest- something that you don’t normally have at home so you will be impressed when it arrives.
The most powerful way of asking for something is to say thankyou for it before it arrives, for example, “Thank you for sending me a pink orchid. I am truly grateful.” And to feel gratitude in your heart, as if it has already arrived.
You only need to ask once and then hold a child-like belief that what you have asked for will appear. No doubts, just believe. Your conscious mind will try to butt in with its normal take on things, “Don’t be ridiculous, this is never going to work!” etc. Ignore it. Eventually, after you have had success with manifesting, it will give up and stop trying to sabotage your efforts.
Take the Challenge!
Give yourself a couple of days to manifest your flower or fruit and see what happens.
Don’t think about how it will appear – just have belief that it will. It works.
I know because I use it all of the time. For further guidance try reading “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne as an easy introduction to this way of thinking or, for more advanced help I thoroughly recommend “Ask and it is given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks. It will change your life.
I’ll stop there. Look how much I’ve written about one line from one song!
Well, I asked the universe to manifest a page for me so it was relatively effortless !!!
