Remember those luscious daydreams you used to get lost in? How long has it been? Too long I’m guessing, I know it has been for me. Ahhhh…daydreaming, it used to be so much fun. Do you even remember what daydreaming is all about?
The dictionary defines daydreaming as, A dreamlike musing or fantasy while awake, especially of the fulfillment of wishes or hopes.” Doesn’t that sound like something you should do more often?
The fulfillment of wishes, that’s the stuff dreams are made of. Are there any limits to dreams? Not that I’m aware of. Remember the song by the Lovin Spoonful?
What a day for a daydream
What a day for a daydreamin’ boy
And I’m lost in a daydream
Dreamin’ bout my bundle of joy
And even if time ain’t really on my side
It’s one of those days for takin’ a walk outside
I’m blowin’ the day to take a walk in the sun
And fall on my face on somebody’s new mowed lawn…
Wow, does that bring back the memories (OK maybe not for all of you) but the fact remains daydreaming is fun. So forget all the talk about meditation and let’s daydream. Remember how? I found these easy steps when I googled “daydream”, so figure.
- Begin by imagining your ideal dream in your mind. It may help if you stare at one spot in the room so you’re not thinking of other things.
- Fall into the thought, see the images and people in it moving around and see yourself in the daydream—you might even try looking down at your feet and hands. This step will take a little time, but not long.
- If this worked, the spot you were staring at will not be what you’re seeing you will be looking at your dream, you may have closed your eyes but that is fine.
Have fun with this, we can talk about the benefits later. What a day for a daydream…
