Daily Gratitude Challenge!
I’m doing a gratitude challenge on some other platforms and I already love it so much! I wanted to bring it here too.
The rules: I post about something I’m grateful for once per day for 30 days. As a bonus, I can contemplate other things I’m grateful for during the day to get gratitude deeper into the fabric of my being. I’d love to encourage you to post your own gratitude here too. Let’s share this!
I actually felt the power of gratitude some years ago in a dream. I was having a nightmare and went lucid. I had the inspiration to try gratitude; looking for any little detail of the dream I was grateful for and to feel that. By doing so, my nightmare completely transformed into a blissful dream.
Note I’ve had lucid dreams probably hundreds of times in my life, and while I can often do cool things like fly in a lucid dream, I don’t have *absolute* power – it’s a bit like Neo after he awakens to the Matrix. One thing I can’t normally do is turn a bad dream into a good one; usually my best remedy for a lucid dream is to force myself awake. The only other time I remember consciously shifting the overall energy of a dream was by meditating on self-love.
Anyway, I believe that if gratitude can be so powerful in a lucid dream, it can be powerful in this dream we call life. Isn’t it a nice thought to basically say — “Whatever else, I want this dream to be a beautiful one!” — otherwise manifestation can sometimes be a Monkey Paw kind of backfiring thing. And what better way to make your dream beautiful than by acknowledging that it already is!
So much for the theory. 🙂
