Our bodies are like clothes that we wear for various occasions.
Whatever the soul needs to experience and express determines the
body that is fashioned for its life. Just as certain attires are not
appropriate for a particular affair, a body that may be great for one
lesson or adventure may not be effective for another. Just as our
clothes get worn out, get tattered, and need mending, the same
happens to our clothing of the soul. So we must be careful how we
care for it. Just as we may really like one outfit but realize we
have to change clothes the next day. The same is true of this body,
for each life is but a day of the soul.
From the book 30 Day’s of Metaphysics and Miracles in Your life by Craig Kimbrough
As I share this month’s page, life seems much grander. Besides the fact that I need to take care of my body at least well as I do my clothes (I really like clothes), I am also reminded that I am more than just this body and that “we are not just humans having occasional spiritual experiences, but rather spirits and souls having occasional human experiences.”
When I think of this, I find myself wanting to meditate more to move into more dreamlike experiences and visions of the soul. I also think of my dreams at night and how wonderful they are. And how they take place in other realms with me functioning in a different body, while I lay there in the bed, gaining all kinds of experiences and lessons.
Note: Every month I will share a page from my book Thirty Days of Metaphysics and Miracles. The idea is to read the page and incorporate it in your world by making it your message, seeing how it applies to what is currently going on in your life, and then living accordingly. Many who have tried doing this have reported astonishing results. People who have the book, randomly choose a page daily. For those who choose to participate, this is the page and main message for this month.

We often hear about how the gyms are packed just after the new year and how soon afterwards it all wears off. No more packed gyms. Over the years I have learned that most of us think about making some sort of new start around the new year, whether we officially make a commitment or not. I am no different. I personally think it is a great thing to think about self improvement, moving to the next level or finally living the life of your dreams. Or even if you have been living the life of your dreams, I also think it is great to move into more challenging dreams. And what better time to do so than when a whole new year is beginning.
So my question for you is how is your’s going so far? How is your brand new diet, new way of being, new way of acting, new life? Are you on track? Oh me? Mine is going great. I just started again yesterday. That’s right yesterday, January 18th! I felt like I didn’t really get into it enough this new year, so I started again. And why not? I feel like every day is another chance to move into our potential life, and live as that potential person, right here, right now.
At our Sunday meetings each person says in a sentence what they are looking forward to or thankful for, while the rest of the group chants Om. One of the members of the group, my friend Wayne, recently says the same thing each week. He says “I am moving into the life I am meant to live.” Mine is very similar. I am going to play my part to the fullest. My potential part that is, and be the person that I see in my meditations and dreams, that is doing things I may normally hesitate to do. And I want to spend my time and focus in the ways I know I should. In other words I will be the character that belongs in my great movie, poem or book. For yesterday and today, so far I have done great. And I am on a high.
I have been reading more, meditating more, and decided to move on a sign I got to take a big financial risk for my meditation teaching endeavors, and positive movement. I am doing the same for my other business. I am also acting more quickly on signs I get for my personal life. And if I fall off or slip up, it is okay. I still choose to be that great character and get back into my part. But enough about me.
How about you? How is your new year starting off? And if it is not to your satisfaction Are you willing to start again?
Peace and Blessings
I am one with the great dreamer
If I Focus on the good, more good shows up
Be true to myself and the lesson at hand
Be in my place where I truly belong
Spread peace and love everywhere I go
Help others understand they too are in a dream
Do what I am truly meant to do
Have compassion for others even if they are challenging
I am in an adventure and a most wonderful character
I am the star of this movie I find myself in
Move deeper into peace every single moment
Realize I can do whatever I like
God and The Universe is always with me
I must focus on the beauty and leave the rest behind
Answers will show up as I walk this path
Meditate more and watch the magic unfold

I was meditating and talking to my teacher, Mr. Ambrister, who in this reality had passed on some 13 years ago. The next thing I knew, I saw a group of people sitting in a circle. As I approached the circle, I was being told that our mission is to live and spread peace, love and happiness everywhere we go. As I moved further into the circle I saw more light and I felt so good that it was unbelievable. To tell you the truth, I could not tell if I was the one telling the group, or if someone was telling me all of this. The one thing I did know, was that I was a major player in the this arena that I was in, and I felt great about the mission, and the fact that I was to play a part in it. Then, I woke up. And I said to myself, “what a great dream!”
Upon awaening, I thought, “this is what my life is to be about.” And I was so thankful for the experience. I was reminded that we all need dreams and ideas to aspire to. And my question to us all is, what is your dream for today?

I had a dream last night about a friend of mine who expressed anger and resentment towards me some time ago. We have not talked since. In the dream the friend was trying to call me but could not get through. So he tried calling my wife, trying to reach me and I got very upset. Then I woke up.
When I awakened I could not believe that I had this dream, and reacted in this way in the dream. I reacted just like he did in this waking dream, with anger and resentment. I had another dream the same night where I was in a fearful situation. When I awakened from this dream, once again I was surprised. I was surprised because my dreams are not usually of this nature.
Upon reflection, these dreams told me that I am still holding on to some things in my world that I need to let go of. It also told me that I am in some way focusing on things that I don’t want to occur and now having them show up in my dreams. So for 2016, I choose to let go of fears, anger and resentments, as I move forward into this world with more peace and love. I will remind myself of this more as I step up my meditations, and focus on the good in my world.

Question for Craig: I had a dream last night in which I was to be seated at a table with my Grandmother. My children were with me. I felt as though my Grandmother may oppose us being there with them, because we were of a lower class or caste. For a moment I felt bad and crunchy or somewhat inferior. I was telling my kids, “it is okay we are going to sit that table with them regardless of how they feel.” As I was coming out of the dream, I was thinking “My Grandmother would never feel that way about me. Why am I having this dream?”
When I woke up all I could think about was a job we had to do for one of my clients. I felt like I did not charge enough and was in a bad deal. Do you think this had anything to do with my dream?
Craig’s Answer: Yes absolutely. Our dreams reveal quite a bit about ourselves, and are often trying to teach us how to behave better in the future. The fact that your first thought was about this bad business deal says a lot. But the fact that this was your Grandmother in the dream also tells us that at times, you may place yourself in bad deals in your personal life also, where you struggle with feeling inferior. Not with your Grandmother. She was only a symbol. But perhaps in relationships with your wife and children, or with friends.
In the future, you must only make good deals in which you are feeling yourself valued. Doing this will change how you feel about yourself. You will be telling yourself and the Universe that you only deserve the best. The entire world will respond accordingly, and change how it responds to you. If you can do this, only make good deals, you will find yourself in the best of income situations, and personal relationships.
Today’s Positive Guru Application: Pay attention to how you deal with other people. All day long we are making deals. Only make good deals, being fair to the other party, but at the same time absolutely feel fair and good to you. Soon this will become a habit and you will be surprised at where you find yourself in business and in love.

Are you a Positive Guru?
It is said that Albert Einstein discovered the theory of relativity in a dream.
In the movie The Wind Rises the main character gets his ideas for engineering design from dream. He would actually go into a dream hoping to get answers.
We can learn to do the same thing in our lives, ask to receive information that we need from our higher self just prior to going to sleep, and get the answers from our dream. We can then live our lives accordingly.
Application: Just before going to sleep think of something that you would like an answer to or more clarification on in your life. The more complicated the problem at hand the better. Ask your higher self, God or the Universe to reveal the answer to you in a dream. Upon awakening try not to let your feet hit the floor until you stop to recall your dream. Then pay attention to how it relates to your question posed the night before.

I woke up this morning
remembering three dreams
I sat there
and pondered all three
I found beautiful meanings
in each one
bringing me back to remembering
how we create our lives
I felt so alive
unraveling the mystery
I asked for answers
and they unfolded
I discovered new directions
in which to travel
I love this time
of the day!
Today’s Application: Tomorrow remember to take notice of be thankful of and use the early morning time for meditation and reflection, even if you have to wake up a a few minutes to a half hour earlier, it is well worth it.

I saw two people about to enter a house. One of the people had problems they wanted addressed and the other had led the first to the house to solve the problem. Next, I saw the same thing happen a total of four times with different problems that needed solving. Then, I came out of the dream. At some point, I am not sure if it was during the dream or right afterwards, I was wondering “why am I seeing this?” At the same time I knew that all four were related and was trying to understand how. I felt a knowing that all four situations were being taken to a higher place within, to be taken care of and transformed. In my mind it was telling me that I must go to a higher place within and all my concerns will be taken care of.
Then I got up and opened up couple of books randomly to pages. Each one was talking about how we have a higher place within that has answers to all problems and situations. This motivated me to meditate to handle all my situations, many of which I was talking to God and the Universe about earlier the previous day. I also had only given myself 20 minutes to meditate because I had to get ready for my day. I soon began to get ideas and answers in meditation.
When I meditated I expected to get answers, but still had to remind myself to let go of any problems. Some of these answers I already knew but I felt much better about the solution. At certain points when I got answers on a deeper level, I would get jolts or boosts taking me into deeper feelings of bliss or ecstasy. Then I came out energized, convinced once again that going within can handle all my situations in life.
Note: The answers to all problems are within. If we can meditate and let go while expecting the answers to come we can see things much more clearly. Our dreams are always trying to tell us something. If we can remember this and be open to being led to those answers, the dream will be quite revealing.
