I’ve been there. In dreaming I am attempting to settle any anxiety that I have about a future/past event. In visiting this event I am giving myself the chance to create any outcome that I want to occur.
My god, what an ability! What a blessing. Now that I understand this I can use it deliberately. Dreams have no reason to frighten or confuse me any longer.
Couldn’t this also be said about imagination?
Isn’t this also what we do when we ‘overthink’ a situation? What we are doing is using creative abilities to imagine a future/past event. However without ‘knowing’ of our creative power of thought and emotion we could overthink, using anxieties and fears and dreads without the understanding of how powerful we are as creative beings. We create an open vision and use our imagination to scare ourselves silly before an event ever takes place.
By understanding that I can ‘go there’ and create whatever situation that pleases me, there can be no fear or dread. I have the power of creation! This future/past event is MY EVENT! I am the planner. I am the host. I am whatever, whoever, I need or want to be. This is my event for the making.
I do not have to ‘hope’ that things will go in my favor. I have to make things go in my favor. This is my event. No one else is planning this event for me. I am planning this event for myself in whatever way that I choose. And if I choose to plan this event in anxiety and fear then that is exactly what I will get; not only while I am overthinking it but also when I actually get there to experience it. Actually overthinking it IS being there and I have already tortured myself.
I have the creative ability to use my excitement in a positive way, in a manner that ‘feels good’ to me. I have the creative ability to choose joy over anxiety or fear or dread.
I choose love. I choose peace. I choose happiness. I choose FUN!
It’s my painting. I can paint what I want to see.
