I wanted to start this new year with a post about bringing your dreams to life.
I remember my mentor telling me sometime back, about how she sketches her dreams into reality and how I should give it a go.
Since then I have been sketching out my wishes and visions and I am amazed at how they come into being.
When I was a little girl (say about 7 years old) living in West Africa, I used to have a best mate whom I used to play this game of telling stories through pictures. Using pencils we’ll sketch out the whole sequence of a story like this…
I’ll sketch out a house that was built by the river, she’ll sketch that it had a mummy and a daddy and four children (illustrated as stick people), I’d then continue the story with say… It had lots of trees where the wicked witch lived! And the story would go on and on (whilst we totally ignored our teacher I might add)
Even at that early age, the instinctive nature of using story telling and our imagination was already instilled in us. This natural skills of using our imagination, telling stories and manifesting our heart desires is part of natural abilities.
So if you don’t already do this, I encourage you to start the new year by buying the most lovely note pad you can find (that one that gives you a lovely feeling each time you look at it), get a pencil to go with it (I love using pencils as you can easily scrub out and change your story).
Start to scribble down your heart desires, visions and hopes in pictures. You’d be amazed at how accelerated your dreams come to life!
Wishing you a very happy 2014.
PS: Here’s a picture of my notepad along with what I love to sip (hot chocolate) while I sketch away (most times in my favourite café).
Please share if you like this post and comment if you have your story to tell.
