The Power of Dreams

Pain acts as an alarm, alerting us there is a problem.

In response, all of the body’s systems, including the mind, are called into action to aid in the process of self-recovery.

Similarly, when we encounter emotional conflict, we also experience pain. The mind mobilizes its own defense to assist in repairing the emotional wound in the same way we release an army of antibodies to heal a cut finger.

Among the mind’s most inventive weapons in the battle for emotional recovery are our dreams. We create them to counteract anxiety or pain.

As children we use imaginative play to help us gain mastery of challenging events. We try out roles as sports stars, princesses, police officers, and superheroes, enabling ourselves to feel powerful in a world in which grown-ups are in charge.

As we grow out of childhood and societal expectations and norms gradually restrict our imagination and behavior. Yet one fantasies remain part of helping us cope with conflicts. We start calling them Dreams.

Now we imagine being billionaires or CEO’s or celebrities, rewarded with power or fame for our accomplishments or imagine becoming a pillar of change in our society. This helps us convert painful feelings of disappointment, helplessness, failure, or loss into a manageable and sometimes even pleasurable thought process.

MIND MANTRA – Your desires have a great part in healing your emotional pain. Your desires give you the capacity to dream. Dreams give you positivity. If you are able to act on that positive direction, you can create a lot of happiness for yourself.
