Dreaming a Better Future into Being

November 11, 2007 on 1:07 pm | In Active Dreaming | 1 Comment

In his books, Conscious Dreaming, and Dreaming True, author Robert Moss writes about active dreaming, a shamanic practice of creating a better future by deliberately, actively dreaming it.

If that sounds fantastic, consider this: particle physicists tell us that there may be many possible futures. Common sense tells us that our future is determined by our choices and our actions, but active dreaming can also help make our choices real.

How do we tell the difference, though, between actively choosing the future (besides the actions that we take in daily life), and simply daydreaming? I think it is by how things actually turn out.

That means we don’t know for sure until it happens, but we can improve our active dreaming by focusing on the positive results. That’s called gratitude.

If you actively dream a certain future that you have chosen, and you take whatever practical actions in daily life reality to make it happen, and it does happen, expressing gratitude is important, whether you are grateful to the Universe, to Divine Mind, or to whatever spiritual system you believe in.

The old-fashioned way of saying that is “count your blessings.” Counting your blessings and expressing your gratitude is actually a potent metaphysical practice. That’s why it is taught (often without explaining the real purpose) by so many religions and spiritual teachers.

That brings me to the point of this post. A group of bloggers from many different religions and belief systems has formed an alliance, called Blog Your Blessings, to promote a good future for Earth and all her peoples.

Members of the group are pledged to blog about their blessings each Sunday as a way of expressing more positive energy in the world. If you are interested in the group and the Blog Your Blessings posts, you will see a list of links to the members’ blogs on the lower right corner of this page.

Blogging your blessings seems particularly appropriate at this time of year, but it is really a form of feedback to strengthen your practice of actively choosing a better future. That’s why I joined the group.

To join Blog Your Blessings, sign up at Blue Panther’s blog.

I am very grateful to have found the Blog Your Blessings group and for the work that they are doing. That’s the blessing I’m blogging about this week.

  1. Marvelous insights! Thank you. This paragraph was particularly helpful:

    Thanks for being a blessing. Happy BYB Sunday.
