As a life coach, I guide my clients through a growth process that allows them to get to the heart of what really matters to them. Experiencing life from this place, we automatically redefine our world. How do we access the truth of what really matters to us? One way is to honor our daydreams. Daydreams are those thoughts, fantasies, or dream-like images and musings that cross our minds repeatedly as we go about our daily activities. We all have them…sometimes many times a day. Frequently, we think of these colorful ideas as interruptions to our train of thought, or as silly distractions interfering with what we have to do or where we have to go. Too often we ignore our daydreams. Unfortunately, what we then fail to appreciate are the soul-longings and soul-messages contained within each daydream. Daydreams are the remnants of our essential self which we are being called upon to reclaim.
I encourage my clients to be very mindful and respectful of each passing daydream, to slow down and listen. For in simply noting and reflecting on each dream’s contents, we are gifted valuable information that can lead us back to ourselves, and to living happier, more satisfying lives. I believe we all know, deep inside of ourselves what we value, long for, and need. Yet amid the craziness of our busy days, at times feeling emotionally disconnected from ourselves, we can lose sight of what we value. Our daydreams, those flickering, quickly passing fantasies, if carefully considered, can lead us back to soul priorities.
