I hope this post finds you in dream mode as you sit and read. Today, as in everyday our world has thousands of messages being broadcast that will work hard to shift your paradigm and crush your dream thoughts. Not a very inspirational beginning for this post, but one that I felt was needed for this day.
Each day you will experience well intentioned individuals in your life that want to give you advice. Close friends and families whom you have shared your dream thoughts with over the past weeks. They will most times unintentionally begin to spread the gloom and doom thoughts they pickup from the television or newspapers, or even worse the exaggerated gossip input from the coffee shop. They are caught up in the victim mentality and they don’t have their own dreams to think about and share with you. So, they become your dream vampire. With all of the negative news that the media puts out every day (most of which you can live without) they are slowly hammering nails into you dream coffin. Like I said, most people don’t realize what they are doing, and if they knew better they would not do it to a friend, and definitely not to themselves.
You Mr. or Ms. Dreamer on the other hand are in a different place! By this time you have begun your journey, or if you are just beginning, you are on a road that will lead you down a much more interesting path. You don’t have to allow the dream vampires to suck your dreams out of you and bring you down to waddle with the turkey population in our world.
Hopefully you have experienced the first two steps to the Four Steps to Workamper Freedom series. With you new found understanding of what it means to remain in Bondage to life and the process of Reason and how it allows you to develop your dreams and move out of Bondage, you are ahead of the crowd. You are working on your dream and moving forward in developing your knowledge and understanding about your dreams, and determining how and when you can bring them to fruition in your life.
The dream vampire is going to tell you that with the current economy and the changes coming in legislation no one will be able to afford to live in the future. Suck ….Suck….Suck… the vampire is at work every time YOU allow them to get their teeth into you. It is your choice of what you listen to. Who you spend your precious time with each day. What you allow into your paradigm.
You must make hard decisions regarding who you are going to spend your time with each day. What influences you are going to allow into your life. These are some of the most important decisions you will ever make when it comes to your dream development. You can gently remove yourself from conversations with sucking vampires by excusing yourself from a conversation. Don’t plan outings with vampires who will leave you literally drained at the end of the evening. Make a decision to let them pray on someone else. This may sound unfriendly, but why would you want to continue to associate with people who are always bringing you down!
This gets a bit trickier if you happen to be living with the vampire. You must begin gently a mode of education that will take some time to be effective. For example, instead of sitting and watching a local news cast where they tell you about the latest murders and crimes in your city, excuse yourself to go read or do something else constructive that will feed your paradigm with positive input. Sounds simple, but you will find it takes effort. You don’t realize that the TV is one of our greatest dream vampires. Especially the shocking formats they like to use regarding the latest killing, or government scandal. Suck…Suck…Suck.
So dreamer today is your day! Make a decision and begin to move away from the dream vampires in your life. You will find over a short period of time that you really are not missing much, and if some bit of news is really important, you will find out about it soon. Most of the time what you will be filling your conscious mind with will be hundreds of times more nourishing to your paradigm.
