A while ago the hubby told me something I've been waiting to hear for almost a decade. He had finally become lucid within a dream.
That probably doesn't sound like a big deal. But I was doing inner cartwheels as I nonchalantly asked him, "Oh, really? Tell me more."
The dream itself was short-lived. Truthfully I was hoping for something a little more exciting, but I recognized how magnificent of a step this is.
You see, I'm fascinated with lucid dreaming and astral projection. I've had unbelievable experiences throughout the years, both extraordinarily beautiful and weirdly terrifying. I'm so passionate about it because it's one of the best ways as incarnated beings to explore our multi-dimensionality, connect with our guides and otherworldly beings, and open our eyes to the truth of who we really are, to name a few of the possibilities.
Even on a practical level lucid dreaming and astral projection have their benefits. We can use them to overcome fears (I was sleep-with-a-nightlight terrified of the dark until 3 years ago), come up with creative solutions (more powerful access to your mind), and simply have an amazing time (your imagination tends to be the limit to what's possible - hello flying!).
Stick with me a little longer, there's a point to this and it's not to convince you to try LD or AP (even though you should if you haven't already).
These adventures open doors, so of course I've wanted to share them with EVERYBODY. Especially the hubby. I want him to encounter the magic I get to experience. However, he is the biggest skeptic I know, taking a logical and show-me-physical-proof approach to everything.
That's ok, nothing wrong with that. But it's still been frustrating to have him dismiss my experiences when I knew he would understand if he only opened up enough to do the same.
Eventually, it went from "it's not real" to "it's never going to happen for me" to "Ok, I'll try to learn how to do it".
...and that's the thing. If you don't believe something is going to happen or that it's possible for you, you're less likely to live it. When he was finally able to shift his mindset around the possibility of lucid dreaming, he EXPERIENCED it.
You have to be willing to believe that incredible things CAN and DO happen for you. You have to be willing to aim for the stars.
As a way-shower, gamechanger, lightworker, mystic, priestess, artist, or Starseed, you're building a new paradigm. Of course, you're going to come across backlash and naysayers, they're still viewing it from the old paradigm. That's why it's so important to keep believing in the impossible.
...to keep believing in yourself and your dreams.
Don't worry about those who can't see the vision, keep building towards it. They'll come along when they're ready if it's even for them to begin with.
You keep doing you -- showing up, following your intuition, working towards your desires, living your passions, integrating your shadows, healing your traumas, serving your purpose -- and everything else will fall into place in divine timing.
Plus, like Dumbledore told Potter, "Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?"
with love and magic,
