What Is Your Style of Dreaming?

Style of Dreaming

On Saturday I went to the movie with girlfriends.

I love going to the movies.  The movie The Social Network was quite entertaining. Last week I talked a bit about Mark Zuckerburg. He was on Oprah and I was impressed with the way he handled the interview.

Even though I’ve had a Facebook page for a long time, I had no idea of what went on behind the scenes. The one thing I was left with that pertained to following your dream, is that no matter what else is going on in your life, your dream drags your ass around wherever it wants to.

I decided to Google some how do I become a rapper sites. Not only did I find some amazing answers and detailed steps, I was stoked to find out I was doing almost everything they suggested.

That made me aware that there is style to achieving your dream. I used to do multilevel marketing and I never forgot how this person in my “up-line” would say “fake it till you make it.” It was good advice. It works in lots of situations.

The first thing I saw on the rap instruction page was number 6. It resonated with me in more ways than one. Even though it is the hardest thing to do, it is the most important:

Stop thinking.

The more you mull shit over, procrastinating, worrying, analyzing, the more it takes you away from the dream. Sensation is the key. How does it feel in your body? It’s kind of like dancing, just stop thinking, let go and let it happen.

So I am going to use number 6 as a mantra all week. I will get out of my own way so my dream has a relaxed, non-judgmental space to hang out in. Oh yea, the word “spit” in number 6 is a rap term.

6. Stop thinking. Just spit and go with your gut feelings, and just let yourself fall into it. If you think too much about your next line you are going to trip up and stumble over it. Just let your mind flow freely from one thought to the next. Practice and writing will help you learn how to do this. ~ the wikiHow site

Doesn’t this sound like a good idea?

Even for other things in your life. We just need to take a big deep breath and drop our shoulders and know our dreams are coming true.

What is your style of dreaming?

    I guess your gut is used for more than just eating, eh?

    How many times have we been confronted with something and not gone with our gut reaction? And then to find out, our gut was telling us the truth.

    I guess we’ll be spitting and going with gut feelings a lot this weekend at the Braveheart
    Women’s Convention in Beverly Hills! Oh yeah, baby!

    Love ya-

    I think –stop thinking– is a really good reminder for all of us. The way I look at it – it can also mean – don’t debate – ACT. I feel that we stress ourselves our a lot weighin all options. Sometimes you just have to commit. Thanks for the great post!

    YES stop thinking has always been one of the most effective strategies for me, especially for someone who was always so damn cerebral! Stop thinking and just write your damn book, bitch ;) as my best girlfriend would lovingly say to me! :) (OKAY she would say write you f*ing book bitch ;) she and I have sailor mouths ;)

    Stop thinking and fall in love! Stop thinking and get it done~!

    Stop thinking and get out of your own damn way!

    You’re doing it girlfriend and you rock my world :)

    Such an incredible reminder…”get out of your head” is something I have to remind myself often…great post!

    • Laurie

      Yea, it’s easier said than done. Meditation helps, if you can get out of your head long enough to do it…hehehe

  • even though i am a man i still find your blog inspiring :)

    Love this: “The one thing I was left with that pertained to following your dream, is that no matter what else is going on in your life, your dream drags your ass around wherever it wants to.” So true.

    I think of The Facebook as the extreme dream story, as others were probably hard work but fun – Ben and Jerry’s and Richard Branson of Virgin airlines who wanted his employees and his customers flying to have a great time come to mind.

    I love this group of women. I love what we are doing and I can’t wait to hear from the women of the world when I get the 8 Women Dream World Wide part up and running.

    I can only imagine the dreams we’ll see.

    I keep picturing you rapping to Rosie O’Donnell for some reason.
