Believe in Your Dreams!
By Debbie Friedman
I went to see the movie "Miracle the first weekend it came out. Not once, but twice. I loved it. The Dream, the Vision, the Commitment, the Determination, the Spirit. Most of all, I loved the message: BELIEVE.
Believe in the possibilities of life. Believe in yourself. Believe that your dream, too, can come true.
Believe that you deserve to have the very best life has to offer. Believe in the wonderful giving nature of the Universe. Believe that the Universe wants you to have everything you desire. Believe in miracles.
It all begins with a dream, a vision of excellence. Then focusing your attention on that vision until it becomes so clear that you can see it, feel it, taste it, touch it, smell it, know it. Along with that vision, taking the consistent actions with commitment and determination to bring your dreams into reality. And, then, expecting the miracles to happen.
Each person prepared themselves mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. They didn't let disappointments or challenges stand in their way. They were willing to do whatever it took to reach their dreams.
And the miracles happened".
This last weekend I watched the movie "Field of Dreams". Not once, but twice. I was drawn to see it, even though I've seen it so many times before. I knew there was a message for me that I must have missed.
The tag line for the movie, in case you don't know, is "If you believe the impossible, the incredible can come true."
And incredible it was. Following the words he heard "If you build it, he will come Kevin Costner's character, Ray Kinsella, plowed under his cornfields to build a magnificent baseball field. He knew that Shoeless Joe Jackson was going to come. He expected the miracle.
And he waited. Sometimes I think we forget that miracles don't always happen over night, that sometimes we have to wait for our dreams to come true. In spite of obstacles, financial difficulties, the doubts and disbelief that others expressed, Ray held on to his dream and was willing to take the actions he was guided to.
In the end, Ray's own father was the one who came to the field so that Ray could have a "catch with his Dad one more time. That precious moment that had been Ray's true, underlying dream was finally fulfilled.
Ray asked his father "Is there a heaven? His father answered, "Oh, yeah"it's where dreams come true."
This was the piece I'd missed before in the movie. And yet, I've often wondered what if this really is heaven on earth. What if anything and everything was possible if we just believed and were willing to follow our passions?
This IS the time to believe in your dreams, to believe in the limitless possibilities of life, to believe in yourself, to believe in miracles.
Stop paying attention to the "What If's that have paralyzed you and killed your dreams in the past. Those are old beliefs grounded in lack and limitation thinking, what we call poverty consciousness. You don't want them and you don't need them.
Instead, choose to play a different game and consider this possibility: What if this IS heaven on earth and you have the ability to create your life based on what you choose to think and do?
Here's some steps you can take to believe:
1. First, believe in yourself. Celebrate all of the successes in your life - big and small. Endorse and encourage yourself with positive, loving, kind self-talk that reinforces your belief that you are a magnificent human being, deserving only the very best in life.
2. Get in touch with your dream and your vision. Spend time each day focusing on your vision so that it expands and you can see it, feel it, taste it, touch it, smell it, know it.
3. Find your team that believes in you and will support you.
4. Set your goals and take the appropriate actions.
5. Expect the miracles to happen every day of your life.
6. Know that you deserve them and that they're happening for you!
