Day 216:  Homemade Dreams!

Day 216.  I wake up from a vivid dream.  Dear Friend’s soon to be 10 year-old daughter in an extreme close up says, “What’s your dream?”  I’ve just been watching a public service announcement about the Declare Your Dream Experimental Motivation Project—in my dreams.  Wow.  I instantly know this is a dream I can create while awake.  It’s 5:18am.  I remember the time on the clock when I nodded off last night read 11:07pm.  Six hours.  I had hoped to get a full 8.  I lie there for a moment.  Images from my recent dream slam into me like bumper cars.  There will be no more sleep.

I have a confession to make.  I’m a compulsive confessor remember?  I went to the PO Box two days early!  I know, I know.  But I had to mail the package of refill Dream Cards to Eye Doc Sis and it was a temptation I just could not resist!  Ahhhhhhh, it feels so good to confess—I think I was a Catholic in another life.  The good news is that I was not disappointed by my premature trip to the PO Box.  New dreams have arrived!!!!  Woo hoo!

Homemade Dream!

But here’s the really fun kicker.  There was a homemade dream card in the batch!  When I first looked at the envelope I was confused.  It looks like a little thank you note.  It was hand addressed but with no return address on it.  Oh, and you’re not going to believe this—I CAN’T READ THE POST MARK ON IT!  Well, I can actually read the date it was mailed—July 25, 2012—but I can’t read the location.  This is definitely a sign that this experiment is supposed to be 100% anonymous.

The homemade Dream Card was a sweet surprise and what I hope is a sign we will be receiving even more dreams of the homemade variety along with the official Dream Postcards soon.

The new dreamers have been welcomed, the new Dreams prayed for and sent off to the Universe to send back to the Dreamer fully manifested.  They have been scanned and added to the experiment.  Please go honor and support these new dreamers and their dreams by seeing their dream and getting motivated to declare yours.

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…homemade dreams.
