Mon. March 7, 2022: Dream Your Ideal Life

Between the pandemic and the GOP trying to kill anyone who doesn’t knuckle under to them and the war in Ukraine, most of us haven’t allowed ourselves the time or space to dream lately.

It’s time to change that.

Over the next few days and weeks, create blocks of time here and there to sit and daydream.

What would your ideal life look like? What elements would it contain? Where would you live? What kind of work would you do? How would you construct your day? What would your relationships look like? What would you make room for in regard to your interests?

Don’t worry about the practicality of any of it. This is about dreaming.

If you work with tarot, use the 7 of Cups card as you consider this. The 7 of Cups is the daydreamer’s card. Interpretations are sometimes slanted to the negative. When it comes up for me, I find that it usually means I need to block out time to daydream and look at a variety of options, without rushing to a decision. Yes, decisions have to be made eventually, but this is not the right moment for it. This is when you need to dream.

Imagine it as being real in the moment, not something maybe for the future.

Free write in your journal, or a notebook put aside for these daydreams.  Don’t limit yourself. Keep the notes of these dreams. Put the date down each time you write something. We will work with them later in this process.

Let your imagination roam.
