Acknowledge Your Dreams

So many of you are waiting for God to tell you what to do with your lives, and yet dear ones, you can find the answers right within your own heart. What is it you want to do? What is it you want to create? You may have very big dreams, such as I want to help end world hunger, or create a big vacation, or have the relationship of my dreams. Or your immediate dreams may be quite small - you may want a wonderful sandwich for lunch at a price you can easily afford. Whatever your dreams, focus there with what is in your heart. Give your dreams and desires acknowledgement, dear friends, for no wish, no dream, is frivolous in the eyes of God. If you want the sandwich it is because you want to take care of both your body and your finances. If you want the vacation it is because your soul seeks respite or adventure. If you want the relationship it is because you wish to love and be loved.

Do not judge your wishes and dreams for none is 'better' or 'worse' than another. All dreams, all wishes, truly at their core, are wishes to experience the love of God in your lives or to express the very same. All wishes and dreams are movements towards greater love. All wishes and dreams, when acknowledged with honesty, starting inside of yourselves, create movement and growth.

Do not hesitate to acknowledge your dreams for fear of disappointment. Do not stop yourself from dreaming because you have no idea how you can have what it is you want. Do not block your hearts dear friends because every time you do so, you block up the flow of love in the universe. When you open your hearts, acknowledge your dreams, feel your feelings, and allow God's grace to rush into you, through you, and out into the world. It is your vibration of excitement, acknowledgment, and anticipation that will draw good unto you. Hopelessness, despair, disillusionment... those are vibrations that do not create any movement whatsoever.

If you feel disconnected from your hearts, stagnant, or in despair, get moving physically. Truly dear ones, just allowing energy to move through your bodies, will create movement in your souls. Take a nice walk in nature. Stretch a little bit, within your body's capacity. Breathe slowly and deeply, if nothing else, and allow yourself to feel God rushing through you. As your winter moves towards spring, the life force within you wants to get moving again, much as the sap within the trees begins to flow when the weather warms. The trees in winter dream of their budding in the spring. So too you can dream of the growth you wish for in this coming year. You can dream of the things you want to create in your life. The trees do not know how their buds will be called forth. Instead it is in their very makeup and genetic program to respond to the impulses of weather and sunlight to do so. So too, dear ones, you do not need to know how your dreams will be called forth in your own life. You only need acknowledge them and trust that it is in your soul's makeup and program to respond to the impulses of the universe when they are given.

So take time while it is still winter, to go into the stillness, and dream your dreams, for to acknowledge your own hearts is to acknowledge God's plan and movement for your lives.
