Here’s a wise statement posted 6/2/15 on theseeds4life blog:
The distance between Dreams and Reality is called Action – Unknown
I have long been a proponent as an ECKist of taking ACTION on your clear dreams, both your goal “dreams” as well as your nightly dreams or even also your visionary daydreams. When you work consciously with your dreams over time, you can receive many direct insights. I’ll share some basic examples here (though do be mindful to hold your most profound dream “gifts” more to yourself; as sharing them can dissipate their strengths).
As we are focusing this month on how to “heed the call” of our own higher—or future—Selves in order to know what direction to take toward realizing our own better endings, I’ll share about one of these sorts of inner promptings. Some 3-4 months ago, as I woke I ‘heard’–though nonverbally, just through a direct awareness or impression: “9 Years”. I understood immediately that this meant if I would stop drinking soda I could save nine years of my life. I had been drinking soda at that time rather liberally, so this message struck me very clearly as a “wake up call.” I needed no further prompting; I inwardly agreed and committed to stop the soda habit, “cold turkey.”
However, the lesson was not yet finished. That next week I purchased some naturally sweetened fruit juice drinks with light carbonation that seemed to me like a fine alternative to the unhealthier “soda pop” drinks I was giving up. But that night, guess what? As I woke I saw a bottle of this drink in front of my inner vision, with a label pasted across the front of the bottle that simply read: SODA! I returned the carton I had purchased that day, and so far since then, I have been gratefully true to this inner gift of awareness that made personal sense to me. Now I mainly drink water or unsweetened iced tea!
So, listen! Have you had a wake-up call? What action is it calling for you to take?
I welcome your insights and stories.
