When we are sleeping nothing else is … your body and all its organs are all functioning, including your mind. Luckily we don’t have to tell ourselves to breathe and our heart to beat while we are sleeping! Our subconscious mind never rests or sleep, it keeps on going to keep us going, it controls our vital forces. Sleep helps us heal faster when we are sick or injured. Clearing your mind and forgiving yourself and everyone else before sleeping helps healing take place more rapidly. Lack of the appropriate amount of sleep can cause us to be irritated, depressed and can cause mental disorders. To me, dreaming is the best part of sleeping. Because I have worked for many years with my dreams and through my dreams my subconscious mind has delivered messages of hope, ideas, confirmation, solved problems, warned me and inspired me.
Prayer and Sleep bring counsel: Take a situation where you need help with making a decision as you are going to sleep say a prayer/affirmation over and over in your mind. You will awaken with an answer. It may be from a dream or it may come from an intuitive knowing/gut feeling you have upon waking.
Here is an example: A woman living in Dallas has a job offer in New York City at twice her salary she is making now in Dallas. After considering everything and doing the pro and con list etc. she was still wondering if she should take the move. So that evening before going to bed she said an affirmation/prayer regarding this matter. The next morning she awoke and had a persistent feeling to not accept the position. She phoned the company and following her gut feeling/intuition, she declined the offer. In the end, about 2 months later her inner knowing(not a good idea to move and take the position) was verified through events that the company went bankrupt.
Try it for yourself and discover the counsel your sleep brings you. As you are about to go to sleep, claim that the infinite intelligence of your subconscious mind is guiding and directing you. Then expect an answer perhaps in a dream or on awakening. You will definitely receive an answer. Another thing that I happen to do is write the question in gratitude form – “Thank you for giving me the lead or answer regarding_________(insert your dilemma) that is for the best and highest good for all concerned.” Then I fold it up and put it under my pillow. I literally sleep on it! And above all while doing this focus on knowing the right answer will come, it is already there you just have to open up to it. Remember, if you do the affirmation and write the note to sleep on and then just go back to “I don’t know, I don’t know.” thinking worry and frustration you will surely receive worry and frustration and not your answer.
Using affirmations to change, improve and reprogram our subconscious minds work wonders and do bring about wonderful changes in our lives. The main point about working with affirmations is that you want the wording to work for you. Feelings and emotions behind a thought is what helps the speed at which the desire manifests. Therefore, it is important
that your affirmation sparks those good vibrations, feelings and emotions to get the manifesting ball rolling. For example, some people like lengthy ones and others like shore and sweet. Some like it to rhyme and some like to sing it. Whatever works for you is best. But as you are saying your affirmation you will notice how well they are working by what your dreams reflect you.
Let’s use money as an example. You are needing some money or wanting to add more prosperity to your life so you start using an affirmation: People Love To Give Me Money. And you are saying this all day and night
to yourself and having a great feeling and thinking Wow this is great and then that night you dream a dream that is dark and dreary etc. The dream points out to you that you have a block to receiving money
or that you just don’t believe that people would randomly give you money. Voila! the block is revealed. Thank yourself for pointing out this subconscious belief. This block can be changed but until you dreamt it you were unaware of this subconscious belief or disbelief and an affirmation will work for you once you change that belief.
In fact, any of us who are not in the flow of money and prosperity have some kind of basic subconscious block to riches and prosperity.
How do you change the blocks? in a word, visualization. I suggest that you take your ‘block’ and I will continue here with prosperity. Get into a meditative state, or just quiet the mind. Now repeat your affirmation
and see, feel and hear the affirmation – use all your senses in a scene that you could conceive and believe happening.
If you cannot conceive the idea and believe it with all your heart then you must use an affirmation that works for you.
Once you find the affirmation that clicks with you and as you change your belief (block) in your subconcious mind your night time dreams may show you how you are progressing or your dreams can also show you when you need to change your goals or when outdated beliefs are blocking your way of real spiritual truths.
Positive money beliefs in dreams can be represented by having gold, silver, money, jewelry, being surrounded by oppulence in your dream backgrounds, luxury, etc
Sweet, Prosperous Dreams!
Have you lately said “I’ve got a feeling,” “I don’t know how,but I just Know” or “I knew that was about to happen”? These are all statements that describe intuition. A non-logical knowing of something. You actually feel the knowing deep within yourself around the heart and stomach area hence “I have a gut feeling” or “I have a hunch”. Intuition just happens and you don’t know from where this ‘knowing” is coming. All you know is you know.
Some people still feel that our physical body is all we are and that once that is gone then so are we … but that is not true and it doesn’t matter whether you agree or not. We are spiritual beings having a human experience and our physical bodies are the vehicle which we use to work through and in while we are experiencing life on earth. We are multidimensional beings, who’s minds have several unseen layers and who’s physical bodies are more than what we see reflected back to us in a mirror. Beyond our physical body, surrounding it is energy that is called the electromagnetic field. This energy field is an extension of us and is where our unseen (by most) sensitivities are extended. There are four layers of energy surrounding our physical bodies. Closest to the physical body is the etheric body/vital body, followed by the emotional body/astral body, next is the intellectual/lower mental body and furthest out is the intuitional body also known as the higher mental body. All of this together, mind, body and soul are what is our whole self.
Being a true to mySELF follower, I have listened to my gut feeling for many years. By doing so, I have been taken to places and introduced to people I would have never experienced had I questioned the outcome of where following it would take me. I know many times my family and friends were talking amongst themselves whenever I made a seemingly “shaky” decision to them based on my gut feeling. In the end it always works out and so far all is right, good and perfect. I just know … this is where I am supposed to be right now in this moment.
Following your intuition is always the right path. If things don’t turn out the way you ‘think’
they should in following your intuition that does not mean that you were wrong.
It does mean that you/your mind put boundaries around the possible outcome and confined it to turn out only one way and if that preconceived way did not work out then your intuition was wrong. This is the mind taking control, not your all knowing SELF. YourSELF always knows and is not concerned with what the mind thinks. It does not ask questions, make judgments or give reasons for this “knowing.” So, the next time you get a “hunch” or “feel it” go with it, trust yourself and don’t think about it or try to define the outcome … in the famous words of Nike. Just do it.
