How to Make Your Dreams Come True

By Lady Saoirse

Learning how to make all your dreams come true isn’t exactly easy, but how to do it may surprise you. Find out why making dreams come true is important and how to do it.

Having a dream and making dreams come true are entirely different things. Over time dreams change. Sometimes what we as children dreamed of doing when we “grew up” is something we decide we don’t want anymore once we reach adulthood, and sometimes, we have a special dream from the time we are kids, and we go on to achieve that as an adult. How do you work your magic to create the reality you want and how can you find out what things make you happy enough to dream about them? How do you let go of things that are not helping, and how do you focus on the things that are really important? Read on to find out how to make all of your dreams come true.

Hold Fast to Dreams!

“ Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. “- Langston Hughes

There is something deep within each and every human being that makes us long for things, and if we cannot accomplish what we dream of, it seems like we lose a part of our souls. That’s why it is so important to do our best to make our dreams come true, and there are ways we can do that well. Learning how to fulfill our wishes after discovering what is in our hearts which tells us what to strive for, and then shutting out the voices of naysayers are great ways to get started. 

How to Fulfill Your Wish

Fulfilling your wishes and dreams can be easy or difficult, depending on the dream, but either way, however much you have to do to achieve dreams is worth it. The first step is identifying all the details you can about your dream, and then find out what it takes. For example, if you always dreamed of singing opera, find out how successful opera singers learned and what it took for them to get jobs singing professionally. Some things take many years of work and study, and if you have the drive and focus, you can achieve these goals.

One thing to keep in mind is what your dreams are and how they involve other people. If your goal is to be the world champion of something, and you tell yourself you can never be happy unless you achieve that, what happens if you never win? Or if you come in second place? Only one person in the billions of people alive can be the top champion, but a lot of people can excel! Be mindful of exactly what you tell yourself your dream is and don’t forget that you can send out energy to the universe for help.

One way to do this is through prayer. You can ask your goddess or god to help guide you, strengthen you, and help you stick by your goals to achieve your dreams. They may tell you things that are not fun. They may point you to a story in lore where stamina and effort are highlighted and they may tell you to look for learning. It is always a blessing when the divine answers our prayers whether they tell us something fun to hear or something about hard work. Some people prefer to send wishes out and truthfully, while there is no substitute for effort, there are good times to make wishes to help us.

Search Your Heart

Be very specific when praying, wishing, or making plans of action to attain dreams. Think and research to find out what having this dream you feel you want entails- all the details possible, that is. If you dream of opening your own restaurant, find out about the long hours and difficulty making a profit first and decide if you are willing to endure all of that before you open doors. Finding out every last bit of information about your dream and what it takes to make it as well as maintain it before you get started may save you from headaches and exhaustion that would happen if your dream becomes a nightmare.

Sometimes, we see beauty in things on the surface but we don’t know the frustrations something will bring. Finding that out and deciding for yourself deep in your heart if your dream is worth it with the not so great things that come along with it is very important and a big part of the learning process. Talk to other people who have achieved what you dream about, and maybe someone will even mentor you if you are lucky! Find out all the details and then sit with the good things you find out and the difficult things you find out before deciding to go forward with pursuing your dream or not. Your heart will help you to make the right decision.

Practice Psychic Shielding

Your intuitive abilities, meaning, your psychic abilities will come in very handy when you are pursuing dreams. The meaning of an intuitive person is somebody whose ability to instinctively know things without evidence, and if you are intuitive, your abilities will help you to know when negativity is coming your way. Many have powerful focus on their dreams, and when working towards those dreams, it is important that while focusing so hard on progress to also be mindful of psychic energies that may creep in and permeate your defenses if you are not careful. When you are not noticing outside influences is a time when unwanted negativity can creep in and sabotage you.

One of the biggest sources of negativity when you are working hard at your dreams comes from people who could not accomplish what you are trying to, and they will try to get you to stop trying. A lot of people have powerful emotions tied into their dreams, and some of the people who can see how well you are doing and who resent your progress will start to poison your thoughts. They may tell you that you are not worthy, or talented enough, but you must always deflect these negative attempts to stop your progress.

Famous American actor and dancer Fred Astaire is known as one of the greatest dancers in the history of film, but even he was torn down early on when he was trying to succeed. He had achieved some success on stage, but wanted to do films, and Paramount was not impressed with him. Undeterred, he auditioned at a Hollywood organization called RKO, and it was said he was not that good looking, and the assistant’s notes read “ Can’t act. Slightly bald. Can dance a little.” He didn’t let the negativity stop him. Instead he framed this unflattering note, and put it in his home to remind himself to keep trying. He went on to act, dance, and also sing in dozens of films, television programs, and was honored around the world. If somebody would speak against Fred Astaire’s performances, they would put down anybody, but we don’t have to listen. Instead, listen to your dreams and keep working on achieving them.

How to Create Your Own Reality

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”- George Bernard Shaw

While we can’t have everything we want in life, we really can decide a lot for ourselves. We may feel we have a string of bad luck, but we can always change that. Our psychic gifts can help us in many ways when we are making decisions about how we want our lives to be and yes, we really can create our reality.

How to Change Your Bad Luck

How to Change Your Bad Luck

Have you been dealing with trying and trying and being unable to accomplish what you set out to? While something like that can happen to anybody, there is one question to ask yourself. “What can I do differently so I can get a different result?” Sometimes bad occurrences are random or completely out of our hands, but if you have been acting using the same patterns over and over with zero results, it’s time to go ”back to the old drawing board” and rethink your approach. If something isn’t working, it’s time to do something else. It may take a few tries of a few different things to get positive results, but the outcome will change when your methods change. Keep trying new things until you get the results you want.

Use Your Psychic Abilities

Your psychic instincts will let you know what to do oftentimes, but it takes some effort to hear what you are being told. Sometimes you have to take time out away from everything to tap into your inner voice for answers. Find a quiet place and ask your psychic self what it is going to take to get results. You can do this in meditation, or simply ask yourself a question and then relax your mind and wait for an answer. Sometimes the answer comes immediately, and others, your awareness is open to the answer, and you see the answer in a place where you least expect it. A book could fall off a shelf open to the page that holds the answer or you could feel psychically drawn to a class or seminar where the topic is being discussed and your answer will be there. Ask your psychic self what is needed, listen patiently, and you will get answers.

I Create My Own Reality

A surefire way to create your own reality is to find out what result you want and find out what it takes to get that result. If you want a job in a certain field, find out the things people who got that job have done, and then go and do those things. If you want the body of an athlete, becoming athletic will give it to you better than just making a wish for it and taking no action will. Everything that you do creates a change in reality, and that creates a response from the universe. Focusing on individual goals, one step at a time, and doing what you have discovered will make those goals come to fruition is the way to create reality. When we are out there creating the world for ourselves that we want, we can make all of our dreams come true.

How to Find Things that Make You Happy

“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”- Marcus Aurelius

One way to discover what your dreams are is to figure out what makes you happy. Sometimes, we spend so much energy and time performing tasks other people have selected for us, we don’t really know what it is that we want in our own lives. Being optimistic about things, and unleashing hidden passions are just two ways to be happy, but when you figure out what makes you happy, make a leap of faith and go for it!

How to Be an Optimistic Person

It’s not easy to remain optimistic when it seems like you aren’t finding what makes you happy, but how to be optimistic is by keeping an open mind to possibilities and trusting that good things will happen even if everything is not perfect. There is darkness, but there is also daylight. Bad times or times when you don’t feel a sense of joy don’t last forever. Believe that you will get through times when you don’t know what makes you excited about doing things and open your mind to whatever it is that makes you smile. Maybe things like hikes in the silence of nature make you happy and maybe busy city nightlife does, but you will find the things that make life joyous for you. Open your mind to discovering what makes you happy with the faith that you will get answers.

Unleash Hidden Passions

Was there something you were crazy about as a child that you have not had time to pursue for many years? One woman loved art when she was a kid, but her family pushed her to go into teaching. Upon retiring, she went back to college, got her degree in art, and opened an arts gallery. Are you too busy with work to travel the world like you always wanted to? Apply for a job doing travel sales within your company and travel all you like! There may be things you are passionate about that you have not had time to think about for years that you can begin to pursue as hobbies and there may be things you can do regularly. Just let your passions propel you forward to fulfilling dreams. 

Go For It!

Go For It!

Now that you know what you want, and you have figured out some of what it takes, set goals that are practical, learn all you can, and keep trying until you succeed!

Set Attainable Goals

A very important question to ask yourself is whether your “dream” is a fantasy based on something that looks exciting or whether this is something you, personally, are born for? Maybe you think it would be great to be a rock star and lead a life of fame and glamor going around the world and meeting exciting people all while being beautiful and creating amazing music. However, if you are not good at music, have no plans to learn how to be, and don’t want to put in the countless hours of work that professional musicians do, this is more of what they call a “pipe dream” or an unrealistic fantasy. While there is nothing wrong with a little bit of fun daydreaming, if you hinge all your hopes on something you are not going to accomplish, all it does is set you up for disappointment, and it takes valuable time and energy away from the things you are supposed to be doing.

Some people believe we are born to do certain things. Certainly, some would say that Greta Thunberg was born to help save the earth and others would say that Mother Theresa was born to help people who suffered, and while not everybody can touch as many lives as people like them do, each one of us is born with great potential to do great things. We are all better able to be successful if we are doing the right things that we are meant to do than trying to do all the wrong things. Sometimes, it is difficult to know just what we are supposed to be doing, but there is something you can use to find out, and that is magic!

A magical operation you can use to find out what things you are meant to do for the world and yourself is to do a simple prayer- but do it to yourself. Find a peaceful place where you can be alone for as long as you need to and then quietly take a deep breath, and say to yourself, “There is something deep within me that is striving to come out. This is the essence of who I am and why I am here. I release all expectations and will listen to the hidden parts of myself when they share their wisdom of who I am and all that I will do.”

Then patiently listen, and over time, answers will reveal themselves. Sometimes they come in the form of an opportunity and others in the form of different types of jealousy. While some people would say that jealousy is not a good trait, what are good traits are things that show you what you are drawn to. If you feel a deep need to do something someone else is and it’s because you are feeling a bit of envy, that might be a way of being called to do that. You can wish tarot answers and use your psychic powers to guide you to what you are meant to be doing, but there is something very important to keep in mind when you are finding out. For your life, you will do a lot of different things, take a lot of jobs, and try a lot of different things that you don’t necessarily stick with long term.

Your life will be made up of different experiences, as opposed to just one experience that lasts your whole life. Even if you work the same job until you retire, there are other things you will do. Maybe you will be a spouse and a parent, and maybe you will be childless and single but will teach on your evenings off. You may work as a chef but then change careers and manage a bookstore. You might coach kids sports, do volunteer work, officiate weddings, rehabilitate injured animals, clean up nature trails with friends, join clubs, host coffee gatherings, or even do travel sales. You will “wear a lot of different hats” based on the different things you do, and you will enjoy a lot of different experiences.

Learn

Make sure that while you are doing all these different things that you are unafraid to try new things. “Don’t be afraid to suck at something new” is a quote that has been said in many different ways but that makes a lot of sense. The more we learn, the more we experience, and sometimes, we find our passions when we least expect them. Feeling the vibrations from new experiences will allow you to test out new things and see how well they suit you. Being the other way than you were before will show you new parts of yourself and while learning new skills, you will discover hidden abilities you never knew you had.

One woman discovered she had a passion for working with Nursing Home residents when she did a volunteer position for a college course and when she graduated college, she worked in nursing homes for over a decade. One man was taking classes to be an electrician and took a job in industrial production on the side just to earn money. Thirty years later, he had still not finished his electrician courses because he liked the industry he had a job in so much, he was still working in it. One man retired from the Army and took a part time job doing security at The Grand Ole Opry for something to do and while he did not need the money, he loved the job so much, he stayed there until he was no longer able to work anymore. He had a lot of memorable experiences and made many friends. 

You never know what you are going to find out while you are exploring options, and you will discover dreams you never knew you had before you started learning more. Learning more, trying new things, and gaining more skills on a regular basis will help keep you sharp, help you to grow, and help you experience amazing things you never knew existed! How is that for a dream come true?

Keep Trying

One truth about achieving dreams is that things don’t always come to you easily, or quickly, but you have to stick with it and keep trying. It’s worth it no matter how long it takes or how much energy and resources you put into it. When you are faltering, and feel like quitting, remember what it was that made you want to reach for your dream in the first place. Take a look at all you have invested in it, and understand that every last time you tried and had to keep trying was every bit worth it. There are no true failures when you are doing your best. It’s okay to take a break to rest before you start working at it again, but after that rest, keep going. Keep reaching for that dream and keep trying. You will achieve that dream.

The Art of Letting Go

“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Then quit. No use being a damn fool about it. “ – W. C. Fields

While we are told by society to try with all of our might no matter what, sometimes, we realize that we are trying for things that just aren’t ours to try for. When you have literally given it all you’ve got in you and you have done so for a very long time without results, sometimes it’s important to keep trying, but others, the passion is gone, and you are just burned out. Sometimes it is time to quit, and others it is time to change your mindset. Sometimes, changing patterns of behaviors are necessary and no matter whether you keep trying or quit, it is very important to remember who you are and what is important.

Letting Go of Thoughts That Don’t Help

How to create your own reality is not by telling yourself things that are not helpful. Not everybody functions as their own goddess of hope, but if you tell yourself that you are a failure and can NEVER achieve something, then you won’t even try, and you will make sure that you actually can’t accomplish what you want to. Letting go of toxic thoughts of failure is one way to work towards achieving your goals and that will help to make your dreams come true. Telling yourself something isn’t worth trying for if it isn’t easy is another toxic thought we have to let go of, and comparing ourselves to others, assuming we are not as capable, has got to stop too.

Sometimes, we stand in our own way with our negative thought patterns, and that has to stop. Instead of indulging in self sabotaging thoughts, affirmations like “I don’t know how much I can accomplish, but I’m going to do my best” and “I might not be able to do it perfectly today, but I can improve a little at a time” and “Everybody says I can’t do this, but I am going to find out for myself” can keep you going and are far better for you than self defeating thoughts. Herbs for attracting money can only help so much magically if you are poisoning your thoughts against yourself, so let go of thoughts that don’t help! 

Changing Patterns

Knowing when to quit and make changes is a great secret to success. Your thoughts are just part of things. Your actions are as well. Patterns are habits we have developed and sometimes we have to learn new habits to succeed. Maybe the sleep schedule you were on before was perfect, but things have changed, and you have to get up a little earlier to get started. Making even a small change in patterns can be all it takes to cross the finish line to goals! Be flexible enough to make the changes you need so you can accomplish your goals and achieve your dreams!

Stay Rooted

Sometimes you have to stay rooted, meaning, keep trying. While there are times when it becomes obvious that you are either not going to attain a dream, or you just don’t want it like you thought you did, other times, it is crucial to dig your heels in, roll up your sleeves, and keep trying. When you have been working very hard for a long time at a dream, and you have been unable to meet a goal, it can become disheartening and exhausting. Times like these you may feel like giving up. Stop and ask if the only reason you feel like giving up is because you have not attained the dream yet- or if something else is happening. If the only reason you are thinking of giving up is you have not attained it yet- hang in there and keep trying. Nobody ever achieved a dream immediately. Yes, your dream is worth working for a little bit longer. Stay rooted and your determination will keep you going. 

Aim For the Highest Good

“The most important thing in life is knowing the most important things in life.” – David F. Jakielo

Be prepared that your dreams may come true in ways you had never expected, and you won’t necessarily have everything exactly the way you had planned it. That’s okay. We don’t decide every single detail about the things we have in life, and sometimes, the way things turn out are so much better than we had ever hoped for, but we can’t reach those dreams until we try. Have no regrets, it’s your life and your dreams! If you don’t reach for your dreams, putting them off for whatever reason, a part of your heart and soul will be broken, and may never recover.

Poet Langston Hughes wrote more about dreams in his play A Raisin in the Sun and he expressed very eloquently what happens to our hearts and souls when we don’t reach for dreams. The poem is called Harlem, and he wrote:

“ What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up

Like a raisin in the sun?

Or fester like a sore-

And then run?

Does it stink like rotten meat?

Or crust and sugar over-

Like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags

like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?”

When you have a dream and feel deep down in your soul this is something you need to pursue, do it. Maybe you can’t do it today, but that doesn’t mean that you can never, ever do it. While we can’t have every last thing we want in life, a true dream is something that must be pursued, and without it, life can feel meaningless. Making your dreams come true is one of the greatest things you can do in life, and you deserve to achieve your dreams. May you know what your dreams are and learn how to attain them. May your pursuit of your dreams be joyous, and may you make all your dreams come true. So be It.
