It’s Nice To Have Dreams – Dreams Inspire, Empower and Create Hope – Give Yourself Permission To Dream! ~ Springwolf
Our Humble Dream
On Sunday July 29th I posted a Sunday Homily “It’s Nice To Have Dreams“, concerning the power of having dreams to reach for and aspire to. In the Homily I mentioned “One of my newest dreams was inspired by a picture I saw on Facebook. I would like to build this on our utility trailer, haul it to the Renfaire and use it as a divination house. Now wouldn’t that be absolutely awesome?!”
We keep talking about our dream in our family and everyone keeps coming up with great ideas. Including our 9 year old son. Who suggested we make a post on our blog to track the ideas and share them with our family and friends. He said “If we think about it and dream about it and that adds energy to making it real, then wouldn’t more people thinking about it add even more energy?” Well, ok; out of the mouths of babes!
So we’re putting his suggestion into practice. We’ll be updating this post from time to time adding our new ideas and progress to making this dream a reality.
Spring’s Haven Divination House It’s Good To Have Dreams
When I first had this idea, I shared the vision with my husband who immediately started designing it in his head. When you share your dream with others and they support your vision, the exchange and sharing of ideas can add to the creation and manifestation of that dream. Not to mention, you can come up with some great additions to add details to your vision! Continue reading →
Work on your designs and creative endeavors. Play around with ideas and see how they fit into your plans for creating what you want and desire. Put your energy toward manifesting not only what you need, but toward your dreams as well. It doesn’t cost money to plan, design and put forth some mental and visual energy toward your dreams. But that energy can keep your hope alive and help the ethereal work with you to manifest their reality.
Not only can you resolve issues or problems that you face in your life right now, but you can also inspire you creative thought process to work out the details behind your dreams. Don’t be afraid to think and contemplate about what you want to achieve. Be they long term goals or short term desires, putting energy toward their design is the first step to bringing them into reality.
While too much daydreaming can be bad, not visualizing your dreams can be limiting as well. So give yourself permission to spend 15 or 30 minutes each day contemplating, visualizing, putting pen to paper to make a list, or draw a design and define the details for your dream. You might even add what you need to make it happen or the steps you need to do to get it started.
If you have a website or a blog, do you wonder if your words and artwork are safe from thieves? Sadly there are many who steal bits and pieces of the work of others and claim it as their own. I’ve even found complete articles of mine posted on someone else’s website with “By their name” at the top of the page. It amazes me that people think they won’t be found out.
Every now and then you should spend a day doing a Google search for your name, recent article titles, or graphic images. My attorney recommends you do this every quarter. When you find someone has stolen your work, email them and call them on it. Most will respond with ok I’m sorry. Some will simply take down the work. Others will change their open forum to a members only forum and you won’t be able to tell if they’re still stealing your work or not. And some will be down right belligerent and ignore you or write you a nasty letter in response. At that point you will need to decide how irritated and angry you are about the theft.
There are some tips to putting the law on your side. I’ve added some information and helpful ideas on my own Terms & Conditions pages, specifically a new page entitled Image Credits.
The new page also covers how to help others work from being stolen without credit. From copyright language to image searches, I hope this information is helpful to others who are concerned with the proliferation of stolen work. Whither it’s yours, or someone elses.
