Shopping for Answers With Oprah
Are you unsure of where to start to sort things out?
Wish you had a personal advisor, or coach to help you make those big decisions?
Surprise! You do have a personal advisor, or coach - it's your intuition. And all you need to do is train yourself to access this inner wisdom.
I've been using dreams to access my inner wisdom since I was a teenager. They never fail to answer the big questions I have in life.
Here's a dream I had recently in response to my question: Am I on track with creating the life of my dreams?
I stayed in bed after waking to remember my dream - an excuse to remain huddled under my comforter a bit longer, and drifted back to sleep instead. When I woke up I'd had a more interesting dream than the one I'd been trying to remember.
In this dream I owned a retail store that was empty. There were rows and rows of glass display cases containing giftware and jewelry. I thought I heard snippets of conversation towards the back and walked over to see if it might be a customer I could help. As I approached I saw that the person speaking was Oprah Winfrey.
Oprah was leaning against one of the counters. She wore a gray wool jumper over a short puffy sleeved blouse with black ribbon woven through the eyelet border. It looked like something a young girl would wear, not a media mogul. I never saw who she was speaking to as the person was seated in a chair partially obscured by a tall display shelf. She leaned forward toward the person in the chair and began singing. 'Hush little baby don't you cry Mama's gonna buy you a mocking bird….'
Then Oprah looked over at me and then turned back to the other person and continued singing - which made me feel very self-conscious about standing there listening to her. I decided I should back away and respect their privacy. As I moved away a hoard of patrons appeared in the store and rushed forward surrounding her eager to hear the star singing. I was suddenly the only one not near enough to see or hear her. I felt very disappointed at giving up my ringside seat to this private concert.
The night before I'd asked for a dream to show me if I was on track with my goals. Thinking about the dream, I realized that Oprah was dressed like a girl which made her more approachable. She also didn't tell me to leave when she was singing to that other person - I made that decision. It also occurred to me that my shop must have had something to offer Oprah or she wouldn't have been in there.
So, I believe my dream was saying that I won't be on track until I learn to value what I have to offer, ask experts for help when I need it, stop second guessing myself, be more gutsy about promoting myself, and open to accepting opportunities that come my way.
Dreams are the best and easiest way to begin to tap into your intuitive wisdom. You don't have to do a thing aside from go to sleep at night; which you were going to do anyway.
Try this tonight:
• Give yourself a directive to have a dream that answers a particular question you've been grappling with.
• Tell yourself it may take up to 3 nights to have the dream.
• Each night before shutting your light remind yourself of the directive.
• Keep a pad and pen on your bedside table to write down the details as soon as you wake up.
• Once you've had the dream analyze for the answers you've been waiting.
I guarantee you'll be amazed at how clearly the answers come through!
