Creating a Dream Collage

You see things; and you say, “Why” But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"
~George Bernard Shaw  

One of the most powerful things you can do toward creating your dream life is to create a dream collage that you gaze upon (or meditate on) prior to entering dreamland.

I know someone whose entire life changed as a result of hanging her dream collage over her bed. She began dreaming about her collage and thinking about it throughout the day. Within a few months, she went from waffling in her career and being virtually homeless (couch surfing), to ultimately being recognized by the Queen of England for being one of the most successful (and empowering) female entrepreneurs in the UK! 

Here’s what to do:

1. Line up energetically with that which dreamed you.In other words, imagine or feel your connection with Source, God, Goddess, Love/Intelligence that governs the universe.
2. Revisit your “Declaration” (from day two) to get clear about what you want…what you really, really, really, really want…to feel, to have, to be, to do…all the way at the core of your being (not just on the surface, ego level.)
3. Create a Dream Collage by cutting images out of a magazine (or on-line with Pinterest or Oprah’s “O Dream Board”) to incorporate your desires. Here’s a suggestion of the different domains of your life in which to find images:

     • Spirit
     • Health/Fitness
     • Relationship/Family
     • Work/Career
     • Finances
     • Sex/Intimacy
     • Rest/Recreation
     • Charity/Philanthropy
     • Travel/Bucket List

Give yourself permission to create without editing. And please don’t think you initially need to be overly spiritually mature. This is an opportunity for you to play and get your yayas out. By giving yourself permission to play in the sandbox of making the kind of fanciful collage of your wildest desires, with no holds barred, you’ll discover aspects of your desire and destiny that never occurred to you before.

It is important that you engage in this process in a fun and playful way. Know that it is safe to swing out and envision all you’ve ever desired, as well as all that you never knew you desired. Once it’s all out in plain view, your spirit will rise up like the phoenix through the flames.

This collage is not one to get attached to as is. Think of it as a living, breathing entity in constant change. Shift this collage, add to it, and discard elements that are no longer relevant. Tend to it. Keep it fresh, organic, and up to the minute reflection of your ever-changing, ever-evolving, ever-awakening, ever-activating soul.

 In a word, how does your dream collage make you feel?
