Positive Poetry (This is no time for sleeping)
Sometimes it comes as just a hunch or a dream
Or someone telling us there’s something that we need to do
It can be in the daytime or the middle of the night
When it happens, often we are caught off guard
It can be very subtle
Like a secret message coming from on high
Other times we get this feeling
In that moment we know that we need to pay attention
At times it makes absolutely no sense
but does it really matter when strange knowledge comes?
These are the times we get that weird feeling
and for a just a minute, we know we are not alone
We may look around and wonder
“Just what is going on?
I can’t believe this is happening
And is happening just for me”
Maybe it did and maybe it didn’t
No don’t loose that feeling. You are on the way home
Pay attention to that chill, and the way that you were feeling
Hold on tight to your message, and trust what comes
When the Universe speaks, this is no small thing
It’s your unknown destiny, the path to your dreams
Leading to wonderful things, or even saving your life!
Just which one it is, you might not yet know
A wonderful new business and an incredible way to serve
Or a change in course that avoids a terrible crash
A marvelous new adventure or the love of your life
This no time for sleeping, this is your chance

Today’s Positive Tip (How to better remember your dreams, Craig answers a question from a student and friend)
Question: I am starting to realize that our dreams tell us a lot and can guide us. My problem is that
lately I don’t remember my dreams as much. Do you have any suggestions?
Craig: That is a trip. I was planning on that being the subject of my next post. I will take this as a sign to post this question and answer right away. This question used to come up quite a bit when I was teaching meditation classes at Wayne County Community College.
My suggestion is first to keep a note pad next to your bed. When you wake up in the morning, don’t let your feet hit the floor. Try to remember your dream first. Write down anything you remember, even if it is only a portion of the dream. If you don’t remember any of the dream at all, then write down how you felt either in the dream or when you first woke up. This must all happen as soon as you wake up. Do this daily. When students would try this, to their surprise they would remember their dreams and come back the next week talking about their dreams.
Questioner: That makes perfect sense.
Craig: Yea, the idea is to not start your day until you pay attention to your dream. That’s why I say don’t let your feet hit the floor until you take the steps I described. Once you get up and start thinking about what you have to do and get into the grove of this waking dream (your daily life) it is too easy to forget about what you experienced while your were asleep.
Today’s Positive Thought (You have to empty your basket)
ften we feel that when we are on the spiritual path, we don’t get angry. We’re just these extra nice people who never get angry and upset. But we’re still human, and we’re still growing even when we are consciously on the spiritual path. Even when we’ve learned how to meditate or go within, and come in contact with the eternal vibration, even if we are having deep experiences, we are still human. At times we’re going to find ourselves in situations that make us angry and upset. When we do find ourselves getting angry, or when our basket gets filled, we need to empty it. We need to let it out rather than try to hold it in. If we hold in our anger and suppress it, it will just build up until we explode, or it comes out in a much bigger way.
If we express ourselves and get it out early we can get back to our peaceful happy way of being.
Today’s Positive Thought (Recognize and move on your spiritual information)
If you are an inquisitive person and very sincere in wanting answers and information in your world, there will come times when you get what I call spiritual information. When I speak on being very sincere in getting answers I mean that getting the answer must be so important that it means more to you than hanging on to old ideas, or fitting in, or being accepted. Once again if you move into this place at any given point, you will have spiritual information come your way.
often when it comes, it comes in way that is very surprising and somewhat other worldly. It may come in a dream but when it comes it really strikes you and makes you feel like the dream was real on some level and trying to tell you something. The dream may even feel so good that the feeling is way beyond what would be your normal experience of feeling good. It may be that you get an idea, and right in the midst of this idea the whole world seems different. You could be in a situation and all of a sudden, you feel like you are being told something. What you are being told may come over the radio or be relayed in conversation by someone, but it seems as though it is talking directly to what is on your mind. You may find that what you are going through at a given time might seem to tie into something else quite perfectly, and you can’t believe the way it fits together. While all of this is happening it’s like you are there, but not there, perhaps like you are looking at the situation from afar. The world may even seem to slow down as the information comes your way.
These are times to take notice. The Universe is getting your attention. If you have had ideas or information come in such ways, think back and ask yourself “did I move on them? Did I act in light of this wonderful spiritual information?” If not, revisit and act. Over the years I have learned that when such things happen the incredible sensations that come at the time are signs that we should really pay attention and realize we are viewing from a higher place.
Today’s Positive Thought and Reminder (work from the mystical state or your deeper mind and allow the answers to come)
If you have something on your mind that needs working out, try to work from the mystical state. Rather than trying to figure it out and get stressed out in the process, try to leave it with God, The Universe, and or your deeper mind, that positive place within that has the answers. Tell yourself what you need worked out, remind yourself that it is already worked out, then meditate. Let go of the problem and be prepared for the answer to just show up. Also be happy knowing the answer will come. The rest of the day do all you can to keep in a higher state of mind. You can listen to uplifting talks or music. Watch uplifting movies. If you are a meditator, you can repeat your mantra throughout the day. If you can truly let go and keep your mind on positive things, the answer will come.
