The number one reason what you perceive as your dreams are not your life is because you do not really know what you want. Sure, you may say you want to be rich. Sure, you may say I want a house. Sure , you may say I want a mate. BUT you are not specific enough. You need to really know what you desire in the greatest detail. How would you know if your dream was staring you in the face if you never fully detailed out what that dream is.
Here is an example of something in my own life. I was living in Oregon. I was tired of the grey skies and I longed for more sunshine. You see, I was born and lived in CA much of my young life. I was in Oregon because I had family there that I could stay with while I was going to college. While I was there going to school I met the love of my life. Someone I had know as a child with whom I reconnected. 20 years later I found myself still in Oregon and longing for the sunshine. Then in 2007 I found The Secret and started living by the principles I learned.
Fast forward 5 years, and I had manifested many things in my life. A dream house, a dream car, a dream job with a dream boss. Life, by many standards, was pretty darn good. Yet, I could not manifest the climate to change in Oregon. Weather was beyond my manifesting abilities….lol. That year I entered a coaching program and we practiced on each other. My coach walked me through the exercise of identifying my dreams. He had me describe everything in the greatest details.
My dream was to move to a sunny place and have a house with a pool, a beautifully landscaped yard, a house that extended my indoor space out into my outdoor space. I described this house and this place in great detail and I shared this with my husband. That same year we took a trip to Florida. We enjoyed our time there so much we knew that was the place for our house. I added a picture of the state of Florida to the vision I had created.
6 months later we went back to Florida and spent time connecting with the state and I started looking for a job that would take us there. I connected with that dream every day.
2 months after we got back home from that trip I received a call from one of the jobs I applied for. Three days later I was flying to New York for the interview. 2 days later I called my real estate friend and put our house on the market. Three weeks later we were in Florida. 3 months later my husband went out with a realtor with the vision of my house I had described so detailed in his mind. The third house they walked into was my house. In almost every detail. My husband was so excited, he didn’t even ask the price. The house was exactly as I had described it. Each of had our own “wing” of the house. We had the pool, the beautiful landscaped yard, the indoor-outdoor expansive space.
We lived in that beautiful house for 6 glorious years. Then I had a new dream.
When you get detailed enough and keep picturing all the glorious details you will know exactly the right opportunity, and the right action to take to bring that dream to you.
