Daily Om ~ Take Action

In order to make our dreams come true, we must take action rather than simply wishing for what we want.

There is a popular misconception that we might be able to just wish our dreams into being. Maybe on some other level of consciousness this is the case, but here on earth what we need to do is take action in our lives. Vision is an important companion to our efforts, but it can’t accomplish anything all by itself. When we focus on what we want and ask for what we want, we are initiating a conversation with the universe. Our desires, passionately defined and expressed, bring about valuable and relevant opportunities, which we then respond to by either taking or leaving them.

Many of us are afraid to step out into the world and make things happen, and so we hang back, dreaming and waiting and watching. There are times in life when this is the right thing to do, but this phase of inaction must eventually give way to its opposite if we are to build our dreams into a reality. This can be really scary, and we may fail and struggle, but that’s okay because that’s what we’re supposed to do. Waiting for everything to be perfect before we act, or waiting for what we want to be handed to us, leaves us waiting forever. No one expects us to be perfect, so the best thing we can do for ourselves is to get out there and take action on our dreams.

One of the hardest parts about having a vision is that when we test it in the laboratory of life, it often comes out looking completely different than what we had in mind or, worse, it doesn’t come out at all. If you read the life stories of people who have brought their dreams into reality, you will hear many stories about this experience. But you will also hear about hard work, taking action, perseverance, and, finally, the successful birthing of a dream.

  1. I get to feeling rejected by the Universe when dream doesn’t turn out the way I imagined, but I know as you’ve written that our dreams do manifest, just maybe not how we imagined them. I get so much pleasure out of your posts that always leave me contemplating more.

  2. Good morning 🙂

    I really like your Daily Om posts, Celticawitch, and have started looking forward to them.

    Energy, intent, hard work, being positive..the list goes onin order to turn our dreams into reality. No quick fixes.

    • Good morning to you too…bright and sunny here 🙂
      Yep, you’re absolutely right although sometimes I’d love a quick fix but I know that’s not how it happens…and anyway, whenever I’ve tried to quick fix something (usually with sticky tape) it never lasts long at all xxx

      • Bright and sunny here too, my husband is out in the garden right now with the jet spray doing the deck as yesterday it was quite windy and blustery outside. Have to say though that my garden looks sad this summer, what with the water restrictyions we had earlier, and then when I did plant out a few things, the non stop rain did not have the desired effect either. Weird summer really. The only things that really grew in abundance again this year was the sage, which is good as one can never have to much sage for smudge sticks etc.

        Yep, sticky tape solutions never last 😉
