Slow Down, You Move Too Fast
Soul Work is a slow process. It’s a bit like Aesop’s fable about the race between the tortoise and hare: The more meticulously you use your inner wisdom, the better the results.
In dreams we can actualize or envision our future, and this is healthy. Maybe a long time ago you stopped imagining and envisioning playful thoughts of fantasy, or even worse, perhaps you ceased to believe that dreams really can and do come true.
Every one one of us must have seeds of ideas that can grow and come to life, but like any seed of intention this will take time and patience. We all grew up on “make believe” stories, and as silly as they were, those fairy tales ignited our imagination.
Remember when you were a kid, there wasn’t any adventure in your head that you didn’t think you couldn’t make come true when you grew up. What did you used to tell yourself you wanted to be when you grew up?
I think we all can allow ourselves to feel a little bit lost, perhaps frustrated at times, and maybe even a bit down in the dumps… after all we are only human, as they say.
But what makes us feel this way? Is it because we have stopped “make believing”? Is it because we have gotten ourselves all caught up in the fast pace of life and we don’t allow ourselves time enough to dream anymore? Slow down!
Picture a sloth moving in slow motion, passively idle, plodding along almost drowsy but always with a smile on its face, worry free and happy.
Whatever it is that you do dream about, if you set your intention of that dream, it will manifest itself when the time is right.
Procrastination from the Universe only comes when you truly stop believing in yourself, when you are racing through life and don’t give yourself enough time to daydream and imagine.
Phantasm wasn’t just intended for when we were kids.
If your dreams have become a mirage, then perhaps it is time to clear the dust from your eyes so you can begin to see visions of what can and will become reality.
