Every time I’ve gone after a dream, I’ve been filled with fears, doubts and uncertainty.
When I first started blogging or when I first released a book I wrote, I had no idea how it was going to turn out. In fact, I was bombarded with thoughts of fear and failure.
When you pursue any dream in your life, there will be this little voice in your head that doubts your dreams and tries to undermine your success. You know that voice I’m talking about.
It can be difficult to see your dreams through from creation to success, because of these self-sabotaging thoughts and mental patterns.
If you’re like me, you begin to think about how everything can go wrong.
You see obstacles, problems, procrastination and stumbling blocks.
You think you’re going to fail.
That’s where Wayne Dyer’s book, Wishes Fulfilled, came into my life, and helped me change the view of
It will single-handedly give you the tools you need to help you drown out the loud noises of self-doubt and go after your dreams.
The book starts with a reminder of who you are and how to first claim your divinity.
“Your higher self is a piece of an all-loving, all-embracing creative Source.”
If you’re cut out of the fabric of divinity, you’re part of a divine cloth.
Dyer encourages you to start from this place of divine knowledge and from a place of your spirit.
Experiment with such affirmations as, “I am all-knowing, I am all-powerful, I am unlimited.”
“Try this: imagine God as the ocean. If you take a bucket out of the ocean, is the water in the bucket the ocean?”
From this place of accepting your divine nature, you can materialize your every wish and desire.
Here are 5 steps that Wayne Dyer shares with us in Wishes Fulfilled to help you fulfill your wishes and make them come true.
1. Your sacred imagination
Your dreams and, more specifically, your imagination form a sacred space. This is not something you should deny or assume doesn’t exist anymore as it did during your childhood.
Try not to contaminate your imagination with negativity or the things you don’t want to materialize in your life. Do not allow disempowering ides of how your life used to be take up space in your imagination.
“Your imagination is your own fertile field for growing any seedling that you choose to plant for a future harvest.”
Don’t let your “reality” or how you see the world today govern your imagination. Imagine and mentally visualize where you want your life to be in the future.
2. Affirm your imagination
Rely on your inner spiritual guide and permit your thoughts to transform.
Be confident and persistent about what your mind can already see in the future.
Use empowering “I am” affirmations.
Affirm, “I am love”.
“I am happiness.”
“I am prosperous.”
“Be fearless, and let those ideals be your reality.”
3. Feel your new reality
“Make your future dream a personal fact, by assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled.”
Dyer suggests that knowing something spiritually is experiencing it – feeling it.
“By literally feeling the reality of the state you seek, which is firmly in your imagination, you have the means of creating miracles,” Dyer writes.
He cites Neville Goddard from the Feeling is the Secret, “a change of feeling is a change of destiny.”
Your feelings affect your subconscious mind, and what you feel is what manifests in your life.
You can choose where to focus your attention and what feelings to feel.
You can choose to feel good regardless of the problems and challenges you see in your life.
“Don’t dwell on your troubles, difficulties or illnesses.”
Instead, “feel the feeling of love in your body directed at what you place in your imagination as an idea, and then you activate the subconscious mind.”
4. Intention and attention
What you focus on and pay attention to materializes.
“You never allow your outer circumstances to deflect you from your desires.”
Instead of focusing on the results and the current circumstances of your life, focus on your dreams and desires. Stay true to the vision you have for your life and what you believe is possible for you.
Have trust and faith that your dreams and desires will come true, no matter what the outside circumstances appear to be.
Use superglue to attach your intentions to your imagination.
Manifesting your wishes is a spiritual process. To stay true to your life’s dreams, you’ll have to ignore facts, logic, past experiences and even your day-to-day reality.
5. Wake up (in your sleep)
Use sleep as a way to propel what you’re envisioning and to make your dreams materialize.
You can reprogram your subconscious mind by changing what you think about before going to bed.
Be mindful of the thoughts that are floating through your mind.
Stay positive, hopeful and confident about your wishes and dreams, especially before you snooze. Feel peace; right before you fall asleep, visualize and assume that your dreams have already come true.
Allow your pre-sleep ritual to reprogram your mind so that you’ll fall asleep imagining your dreams coming true.
It’s time to let go of what has happened and what your current life looks like.
Dyer encourages you to transform your life by escaping reality and staying true to the unlimited possibilities in your imagination.
Embrace your divine nature and allow everything to manifest from this soulful place.
