Using dreams to help change your reality
(This article is from my newsletter series)
Your thoughts create your reality – it's a fact. They create your reality through impressions onto your subconscious mind, which is the link between you and the infinite intelligence that manifests your reality. Your subconscious mind is a living storehouse with layers of conditioning, including fears. Much of this conditioning originates in events and times far below your conscious awareness. That doesn't matter! Like a faithful dog that carries out his master's wishes, your subconscious mind will continue to create your reality based on the instructions and conditioning it has been given. If carrying out these instructions brings you ill health and misery that is of no importance to your subconscious mind. It merely creates a reality based on the input—your input!
It may seem like madness, but remember that the conditioning you pick up in childhood is by design and mirrors your limitations on the spirit plane. Your purpose in coming here is to overcome these limitations. The conditioning you pick up plays like a tape on an endless loop in your subconscious mind, and with those instructions your subconscious knows the reality to create. The subconscious never sleeps and trumps any fleeting thoughts in your conscious mind in creating your reality. In this way, even in the density of the earth plane, you manifest the reality you need in order to face your limiting beliefs and thus grow through eliminating them.
Right now, you can attract into your life everything you want, whether it is fame, fortune, love, heath, happiness or success. You can also attract into your life lack of recognition, poverty, loneliness, ill health, misery and failure. What you attract is fully within your control. You are never a victim of chance. How to attract what you want with your thoughts is the subject of many excellent books such as Think and Grow Rich! There are also many outstanding courses that teach you practical tools for creating the reality you desire through focusing your thoughts and mind such as The Silva Method. (My preference is for the original more comprehensive course.) This knowledge is certainly not new and definitely not secret. But a note of caution, just as with dream interpretation, there are some misguided books on the subject, so don't swallow what you're fed blindly (including what you read here)!
You may have a conscious plan of what you want, but since your subconscious mind is the real architect, how do you know what you're going to create? Better yet, how can you program your subconscious to create what you want? This is where dreams come in. It will come as no surprise that dreams ask you to clear conditioning that is detrimental to your well being and blocks your success. They show the age you picked up specific conditioning and how it affects you today. They also show who it is connected with, so you have everything you need to work on changing it. Teri asked for a dream that would reveal the source of her limitations. What follows is part of her dream in her own words.
I slip into my friend's house unnoticed. I think I can find the answers I'm looking for by going to a back bedroom. When I get to the bedroom I decide to try on some clothes. I am in a state of undress when I hear the voice of a man and I realize he is heading towards this extra bedroom to put something away. I am suddenly embarrassed to be discovered in her house, especially since I am still undressed, and I'm ashamed that I never asked her permission to be there. So I try to hide under an orange blanket but he sees me right away. He thinks I am one of her grandchildren hiding under a blanket. I have to reveal myself and try to explain that I was just using the bedroom to try on some different clothes. He says that I'd better get dressed and then he leaves the room. I have a hard time finding my own things and I'm feeling a little panicked. Finally I am able to get dressed again and I sheepishly go out to the living room to apologize.
This dream tells Teri she will "find the answers" (said directly in the dream) by looking back to when she was in the womb (back bedroom). She must clear the conditioning she picked up there (undress and reveal herself). The conditioning is connected with her father (man in dream) and shows up today as feeling she somehow needs permission, being overly apologetic and sheepish, having a sense of panic where there should be none, hiding who she is, and holding back on sharing herself. The above are all words directly from her account of the dream. The orange color of the blanket also links her weight problem with the issues around her father.
Teri's solution to dealing with these issues is to cut-the-ties with her father. There are many effective therapies but cutting-the-ties works very well with issues you have no conscious memory of. It is a technique that instructs the subconscious using dream-like symbols to release the conditioning and fears associated with the individual with whom ties are being cut.
In reality, after nine years of trying to conceive, Teri's mother was elated to discover she was pregnant. Her father's reaction was to accuse her mother of infidelity and he refused to believe he was her father. Clearly the dream brings the focus to the correct point in her life. In other parts that are not shown here, the dream promises that dealing with these issues will springboard her spiritual leadership ability into a new dimension of success—clear encouragement to put in the work to eliminate these issues.
Cutting-the-ties is described in detail on my website. The therapy is extremely effective at removing the conditioning pointed out by Teri's dream. That conditioning is the foundation on which her issue of not feeling worthy of the space she occupies is built. By removing the foundation, everything built on top of it becomes unstable and is easier to tear down. Her apologetic nature, lack of confidence, sheepishness and embarrassment when sharing herself will disappear. They have no choice but to. The subconscious does resist but it does not question. Through the therapy it will purge the stored conditioning. Once out of the way, new positive traits are revealed. The evidence of new positive traits is generally how we perceive growth, but it is elimination of the conditioning that obscures them that is the real growth. The positive traits are already there but are either fully or partially masked by childhood conditioning. Once purged of conditioning, Teri's newly trained subconscious will create a different and far more welcome reality than her present one.
Using your dreams you can discover conditioning and purge it from your subconscious. You are then freed from the harsh reality that your conditioning creates. You are also free to impress on your subconscious new thoughts that will shape reality and fulfill your desires for health, happiness, success, love and more.
Cutting the ties
Cutting-the-ties is a service I have offered since 1992. You can do it on your own but for many reasons it works far better when facilitated. It typically takes six weeks to complete. Six weeks is not long compared to the 40+ years the conditioning is embedded!
