Part 1- The Magic Of The Dream Maker
Perhaps the most unrecognized figure in modern times is that of the dream maker. Everyone knows the dream maker, but only a few would recognize them. In most cases meeting them might appear to be a coincidence or an accident, but not quite so; if they receive you, it’s only because you’re ready.
There’s an air of mystery surrounding him or her, something quite undecipherable. They don’t advertise or talk about who they are, but only when you ask. Even though they might seem unapproachable, as perhaps you don’t know what to say or why you feel compelled to talk to them, the dream maker is always available.
Expect the unexpected when entering the world of the dream maker. Everyone is invited, although not everyone might be ready for what they will see and experience. In this case, the meaning of the saying “be careful what you wish for” comes to light. Within the world of the dream maker you will experience magic, the fairy tale, the drug free psychedelic trip, for this is a state of higher consciousness. It’s unconditional love, the return to childhood, when everything was possible.
When he or she invite you into their world, it doesn’t mean that they’re offering you the world. It is your world they want you to see and remember. The dream maker knows that your world is as beautiful as theirs, only that different and it cannot be compared, as each one has an unique expression, essence and magic. Her realm is life in a different dimension where you can remember your dreams and live them once again if only for a while. He will encourage you to follow your dreams. She will urge you to follow your heart. Both, he and she will let you go as you ask.
The craft of the dream maker is to be, just be. When we allow ourselves to be in the present moment, everyone is the dream maker. That’s all it takes, being here and now without manipulating, without anticipating and simply allowing life to express its wonderful beauty and magic.
The dream maker is here to give and will never take anything from you unless it is offered. How you value this experience might involve an offering in return. An exchange keeps the balance and it’s an appreciation to magic that will contribute to more magic. But they know that magic is in giving, not taking. And what they have to give is endless.
The figure of the dream maker is usually misunderstood as they might appear as if they have nothing to give in a world consumed by the idea of appearances and material wealth. One way to recognize them is through their eyes. Their eyes are magnetic, eery and in them you will see the the Universe, the endless possibility.
He will lend you his highly perceptive senses to experience your own reality; she will amplify the messages of your soul, so you can remember the message you carry within and your earthly purpose.
Even though the experiences you will have are captivating and might seem to be out of this world, you will always feel safe and protected with the dream maker. Fear is an emotion of the third dimension only. When in their company you will feel surrounded by respect and love from others and throughout the experience you will feel all sorts of new states of being, such as confident, powerful, invisible, playful. All you have to do is ask and they’ll provide.
He will never stay too long. And she will go when you’re ready to move along without her company. If you fall in love with the dream maker, they will let you go without heartbreak and you might remember the experience you shared as a dream. The dream maker has shown you the most beautiful manifestation of their soul, so you can see and feel yours; and even though the moment might feel dreamy, in your heart you know that your gypsy soul is where you must return when you’re ready.
But if you fall in love with the dream maker and you want them to stay, then you only have to show the courage to leave your life behind and follow your dreams. Either way the dream maker will always love you, for they are In Love.
The dream maker is real, very real. Go and find them. Just remember; once you’ve been touched by magic there’s no return, and your world will never be the same again.
Next time you ask for help or make a wish, make sure you are clear about what you ask; you never know who’s listening. Love and freedom are limitless fields of energy and dimensions for which you might to be as prepared as your imagination might believe.
Part 2- Moving Towards Magic, Love And Freedom
You asked for freedom. You asked for love; to love and be loved. You asked to play, to dance, to sing; to go on adventures. All these things you asked before you were born, and the purpose of the soul is to explore and achieve them all until you live in freedom and in love.
A free person can be free in a man made prison, for the soul can never be imprisoned.
In a world that has been designed to be a prison for the soul, freedom is a constant act of rebellion. Freedom is the natural state of the soul, but little by little we lose as we grow up. In most cases the people who love us most turn to be the cruelest jailors, as they impose limitations and strict set of rules, so we can become the person they wish us to be. Everything has been mapped out for us.
In the family equation what we want is never important. Some people are not built to fit the norm. In fact, no one is, but there are cases in which it is clear that the soul is on a mission and has a message to deliver to the world. Artists, singers, musicians, writers, performers being the most obvious. If you have a thirst for adventure, traveling, know new places, new cultures or even you resort to little escapades so as to be free, you also belong that that group.
Humanity’s lack of adventure leads most people to escape through drugs and alcohol, food, prescription medication, violence or sex to name a few. At this stage, in our minds everything is better than reality. When we follow this pattern we pay the highest prices for a little escapade, offering our bodies, time and minds to lesser gods, and worse, to people who don’t care about you. Escaping from reality comes at a high price. There’s no one we can blame for it but ourselves.
In some cases our loved ones would go to extremes to keep us from following our dreams of love and freedom. This phenomena is represented in different ways. Guilt is thrown around in the name of love. When a child is submitted to this kind of control, it is also possible that psychological ‘problems’ appear. While the mind is easy to control, the soul is not, and an internal battle begins. Prescription medication inevitably follows in an attempt to numb all senses. Ghost conditions might also appear, also diagnosed by a mother or father. OCD, ADHD, etc,.
Welcome to Numb City, where you’d be just another passive citizen watching your dreams and talents wither throughout a lifeless existence intended to survive, not to be confused with life.
While this type of behavior is mostly unconscious and it is very likely that parents truly do not know that they are inflicting a terrible damage to their children, as all they want is to protect them, ignorance doesn’t make the harm lesser. As someone grows up and begins to interact with the world, new elements are introduced in the journey. If freedom is what you are seeking for, a man or a woman might come into your life. Rest assure that anyone that comes into your life speaking of love and freedom while your parents are still trying to control you, they will throw the first accusations to defame or exclude such people from your life.
This is no longer ignorance, it is malice, cruelty and unconsciousness as it worst, speaking words of fear. No free man or woman would be affected by this. We are free because we never listened or bought into the lie of others. The irony is when a father who’s also her daughter’s prescription drug dealer in an attack of panic and fear accuses another man who speaks of love and freedom of drugging her with his dreams. Yes, your daughter got high on consciousness. Now go and report that and tell everything about magic. We fear nothing, and as we hide nothing, we are easy to find if you’re looking hard enough.
The term for this is called ‘Gas Light’. ‘Gas light’ is a 1944 film by George Cukor in which a husband convinces her wife that she is insane. In order to do this, he leaves the house during the day and changes the intensity of the gas so the lights flick and change at his will. When he returns home and his wife tells him, the lights are back to normal and don’t change.
Magic begins as soon as we are born. Then in most cases gets lost in translation. After a period in which we no longer believe in magic, we begin to wander in search of it. We might not believe entirely, but deep within we always know that it is there. Often, these men and women I referred to above are warriors of love and freedom that reintroduce you to it. As they are free, they will always allow you to make your own choices. You may follow them or return to your prison after a little escapade. It will never come from them to force any acts upon you so as to set you free. Freedom like everything else in life is something we owe to ourselves. No one else can do it for us.
Life changes when we enter again in the realm of magic. You might have been called by a mad man in the street, touched by the kind hand of The Muse or taken to an entire new world where all dreams are possible. The most important fact to remember here is that once you have come in touch with the dream maker, all arrangements you might have made previously no longer have any validity.
Part 3- Betraying Magic And The Dream Maker
The second part of this three blog piece states that once you have come in touch with magic or with the dream maker, any previous contracts you made in life no longer have any validity. Understanding this is essential to guarantee that your path continues in the light, not in darkness.
When you first met the dream maker you made a wish and asked to explore new experiences that made your life better. If he or she agreed to help you, by now you must have experienced everything you asked for and more unexpected surprises, things you never believed were possible. As the dream maker is someone that moves a lot and hardly ever stays too long in one place or in someone’s life, it is very likely that you have returned to your all routine.
The first days of your return will feel almost as magic and eerie as they were with him or her, but as time goes by, your old life and habits become more suffocating. Now you have a different reality to compare, so it is no wonder that these previous arrangements now seem too disproportionate or uncomfortable.
Let’s say that you asked to experience a healthy relationship in which nothing is taken from you and in which you can give freely or love or freedom or all of it. Once you have gone through the experience, you will recognize the energies of those men and women who approach you and be able to differentiate between a healthy energy or a negative one and act and choose accordingly. This is the perfect opportunity to change patterns that no longer serve you.
If you asked for love and freedom, you might feel that your family, relatives and friends keep you in a prison they call ‘love’, but which offers little of it, which is what you most desire. The dream maker would have warned you about returning to such habits and the consequences that come with it.
In most cases when we enter the realm of magic, we tend to associate it with certain people or places. The fact is that once you experience magic, it follows you everywhere, as the forces of the Universe move accordingly to make it possible. Returning to old habits, such as alcohol, drugs, mindless sex or an unhealthy relationship to name a few will make you reality feel worse and you might not know why.
By now you know that all feelings and experiences you had with the dream maker were enhanced and amplified. The ‘betrayal’ of magic is nothing but returning to old habits. If you have one of these experiences, you must follow the healthy steps you learned during that period and be true to yourself. One does not have to renounce to family or friends to have a healthy and magic life, but setting boundaries might be required. At the same time, one does not have to renounce magic to keep family and friends.
As the experience with the dream maker is a jump into a fully conscious life, it could be too intense for some people and even tempting to return to old habits to have some sense of normality. Not everyone is ready to move into consciousness so suddenly, and it is OK not doing so. Just remember that every action and decision you make might take you far apart from magic, and the colorful fairy tale you lived with the dream maker turn to darkness.
The further and deeper you insist in going into darkness the more unbearable magic will make it for you, so you finally wake up, follow your dreams and return to the ways of the soul: playful, creative and magic.
If this is the case, the reason is that there is something to see in darkness and do not forget, this is the path you chose, the hard path. No one is to blame for it but you. Make your darkness conscious and bring truth to your life. This is your own truth.
You might have asked help from a dream maker not knowing who they were, but you recognized their abilities and their willingness to help you. If this is the case, honor your agreements and see your life returning to light. If you asked help from someone and after a period of ‘enlightenment’ your life turned to darkness, this might be the reason.
Beware of betraying the dream maker. They might not seem much to the outside world, but they are the strongest of people and are very well protected by the forces of the Universe. And never; never play with the heart of a magical man or a magical woman, for their heartbreak will return to you tenfold when least expected.
The dream makers live in love and are In Love and will continue loving you regardless of your actions, words or what you do to them. In time you will wonder why they never hit you back. This is because they are here only to show you the way home and everything they do is with love, only love. Their heart might break one minute to heal the minute after. Their souls and hearts are on fire. This is how they heal the world.
In love they will patiently wait until you look back at that time they touched your life, see their expression in the eyes and you realize that this is love, that this is safe and this is home. Then you’ll understand, that there’s nothing to forgive, that everything is forgiven; that they loved you all along.
If you decided to separate from magic and the dream maker, remember what they told you, that what you experienced with them you can create yourself, that it is not necessary to return to them. He or she will always let you go. There’s not in them any sense of possession, only love. Dream makers don’t create dependency, they provide ways for your to find and live in freedom. If you forgot, the way back to magic is to honor yourself and honor yourself, and be, just allow yourself to be, here and now.
And in case you doubt, if once they loved you and fell in love with you. They’re still in love. They’re always be in love with your beautiful soul.
