This week we dive into the right language to use when talking about your dreams.
I was in a session with my coach and she totally busted me! She caught me talking about my dream in future tense which is a no-no when working on manifesting what you want.
Not only was I talking in future terms…
“…when it happens…”
“…maybe it will happen…”
“…I can’t wait until…”
I was also using word and phrases that were laced with doubt…if, when, maybe. My energy was sending out thoughts to the universe that were pushing my dream farther away keeping a gap between my dream and what I want in my life.
My coach said…”Nicole, stop that! You’re talking about your dream like it’s far away, stop that!” We laughed because as a coach, I’m suppose to know better. But even I get caught up in doubt, self-limiting thoughts and beliefs…hello, that’s why I have a coach!
I was so grateful she pointed it out to me. I just didn’t realize how much I was talking about and thinking about my dream with a “hopefully it happens someday” kind of energy. Even saying “it’s happening” is still future tense.
And to make sure I really received the message. later in the week I heard someone else doing it. They did the same thing, “…when it happens…it will be awhile but…it’ll hopefully all come together”. Busted!
So this is your reminder, or lesson in case you didn’t know, stop “coach swearing” (that’s what my coaching and I decided to call it!)
Talk about your dream in present tense, it’s here…in fact, it already happened!
Better yet, take these few short but powerful steps to bring it forward even faster and keep you on track and consistent. Your thoughts, energy and words will align and send out the right message to the universe, you’ll have the right energy when you take action on your dreams.
- Write out your dream, in detail, present tense. “I am so happy now that…having this is so fulfilling because…this is what I wanted and more” and so on.
- Speak your dream forward. Read your words out loud, even better if in front of the mirror while you look yourself in the eye. This is a powerful way to make your words reality, to proclaim to not only the universe but to yourself that what you dream of is already here.
- Repeat, repeat, repeat! Read your written dream so many times it feels like a memory. It already happened, describe the wonderful details to yourself and others just like you would any wonderful memory. Your subconscious mind does not know the difference between what is reality and what you create as reality, it has no sense of time. Everything is right now. So live in your dream now. By doing this, you align your energy and your dream to bring it all together and connect the dots.
- Celebrate and show up expecting the best. That’s right, live your life as if your dreams have already happened. In the quantum field they already have, you are simply expecting the very best to show up for you in what we can call ‘real time’. If you knew your dreams were guaranteed to happen, how would you show up? What kind of energy would you have? Don’t wait, show up that way now.
These are important tips because you don’t get what you wish for, you get what you believe, you get what you tell yourself and what you tell others. Speak your dream forward and live your big dreams now!
And by all means, stop “coach swearing”!!!
