I had several dreams last night. Each time I was finishing one I would say to whoever was in the dream the same sentence, “The distance between worrying and reality is called perception.” I have no recollection of the dreams. I do have the quote imprinted in me because it was used many times. The line between fear, anxiety, stress and worrying is definitely a matter of perception. Reality is an illusion. When we finally let go of the belief that we have control the Divine steps in and aligns us with the best possible solution. Our higher selves begin to guide us and we allow for it. We release the doubts, discontentment, and disillusions that we can conquer everything by manipulating it. The veil of “what if” turns into a welcoming “what really is.”  A shift in consciousness is all that it takes…sometimes a lot easier than done.  It takes practice and every once in a while knocking the ego out of the way.

These dreams allowed me to wake with the knowing that the stress I’ve had has been a production of my perception. No doubt that the challenges have been real. No doubt that the heartache has been felt. No doubt that I have entertained the drama while knowing better. But, once I am aware of my perception I can relax and enjoy what’s ahead.

Have a great weekend, my friends. Release, recharge, and retreat! Love and light….Millie

  1. Thanks for a beautiful article on “Perception”! The key learning which I received from you is “The line between fear, anxiety, stress and worrying is definitely a matter of perception”. Thank you again.

  2. Ah yes Millie…So true are your words. I am reading a book right now called “Words can change your brain” by Andrew Newberg and Mark Waldman…Amazing stuff. It talks about a new way of communicating called compassionate communication…It is mind boggling to think for so long people have thought of the world as just that, the world, but in reality there is a different world for every single person. I’m so glad we are finally getting around to learning the truth about our worlds. Thanks for sharing dear one and happy weekend to you as well 🙂 ❤ VK
    btw…I moved to my new blog just in case you are interested.

  3. Love this, Millie. I had a similar experience last night only with words I wanted to keep. Finally, I had so many that I had to get up and find a pen or risk the eyre of sleep-filled moments between. But the lesson in yours – divine. Avoid the abyss. 🙂
