I learned from a dream last night that I have the ability to see the end in the beginning and that if I look closely I will see there are lots of opportunities around me right now to keep moving forward and to keep making things get better and better.
This is not about time travel or about future or fortune-telling, although it’s fun to play around with those concepts when writing fiction novels. This is about capacity building.
In its essence, when someone learns how to do this skill of seeing the end in the beginning, it means enough skill and capacity has been built up to be able to face obstacles, challenges and struggles in a way which would have been impossible before.
Skills and capacities are built up in two main ways. The first is by noticing when anxiety shows up and instead of feeling anxious learning to remember what you do well and repeat it often so that Confidence is unshakable. The second way is to notice when fear shows up and instead of feeling afraid the key is to learn new skills and develop new capacities so much so that the fear is nearly eliminated.
Then with Confidence and Courage an individual can move forward in the directions of their aspirations.
So my dream last night showed me a symbol of whole chickens in the fridge. There were two in the fridge and one in the freezer. Chickens like this are a personal symbol to me about prosperity, health and well-being because in real life, when I can buy a chicken, and have time to prepare it properly, and have calmness and serenity to sit down to a meal and enjoy it, then one chicken can feed me and my daughter for a week.
First we have roasted chicken with sweet potatoes, carrots and corn.
Next we have chicken soup and chicken sandwiches.
Then we have chicken & rice.
It’s delicious, affordable, easy-to-digest, simple to prepare and gives me comfort all week long.
To dream of having three is a symbol of having three weeks worth of ease and well-being.
How does this relate to the skill of seeing the end in the beginning?
When I open the fridge in real life or in a dream and see one chicken I can see it all the way to the end. I see the end result of a week’s worth of good food in my mind at the same time as seeing one cold uncooked chicken on my fridge shelf.
Having the skill of seeing the end in the beginning helps in every relationship and in every situation.
I’d like to write more about this right now but I also want to get a pot of stew in the crockpot now so I’m going to go do that and I’ll write more about seeing the end in the beginning another time.
