When a dream shows you a wonderful, uplifting, positive symbol, you can use it to spin a little dream alchemy to accelerate the manifestation of excellent outcomes into your life.
There are many tips throughout this blog describing how to transform a negative aspect of a dream into a positive one by visualising the change over and over again. For example, if you dreamed of a little bird, trapped and unable to fly high, and related your dream to feeling trapped in your career, you can visualise the little bird freed from its trap, flying free and high. What this visualisation does is communicate with your unconscious mind, using its own symbolic language, to change those unconscious beliefs that have been stopping you from flying high in your career.
But remember, what dreams do is process your experiences of the last 24-48 hours to update your view of the world and your place in it. In this way, they are the blueprint of your future, as the future is most likely to turn out according to your beliefs and experiences.
Now, imagine something happens at work to give you a glimpse of what it would be like to fly high in your career, to feel free instead of trapped. Your dream might process this experience resulting in a dream of a resplendent bird flying high, up and far away from where it had been trapped. Such a dream would suggest your beliefs are changing, that you are beginning to see that there is nothing holding you back from flying high.
That being so, how long are you going to wait for this belief to fully form? This is where the dream alchemy practice comes in. By simply visualising this positive part of the dream – the resplendent bird flying high, up and far away from where it had been trapped – and making sure you add uplifting feelings of joy, freedom, and ease to the visualisation, you can consolidate your new belief and accelerate its manifestation in your life.
What will you manifest in this example? A sudden insight that the trap was all of your own making, an opportunity to fly high and, possibly, some synchronicities in the shape of resplendent birds and high flying symbols peppering your days awesomely.
