My "Invisible Council"
I am reading this book called "The Awake Dreamer". It is by an intuitive teacher who helps you engage in your dreaming world a bit more. I am sure many of you have read the book " Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. He talks about his Invisible Council. He would have these imaginary discussion with 9 people who he felt could help him solve his problems.
Well I call it my dinner party. 5 men and 5 women who I would like to have dinner with. I started trying to do this last night and I got some advice in my dream. Maybe it's just like AI and I get the advice that these people typically give out or maybe it's something spookier. I don't know but it was fun and I am going to continue
1. Katharine Hepburn
She is just fierce. She knows exactly what she wants and she just gets it. I love her energy. She is there for her no nonsense attitude.
2. Albert Einstein
He has a creative spin on how to problems solve. The book "how to think like Einstein" has changed how I think about things.
3. James Altucher
I wasn't even imagining a conversation with him last night but he popped in my dream. He told me I needed to work out. lol. I did today for the first time in a while and my creative juices just exploded. I felt alive in my head. I got out of a funk. So... thanks dream James.
4. Princess Louise of Argyll
She was Queen Victoria's rebel daughter. I think I was her in a past life if past lives exist. She didn't really do what she was told. She didn't marry royalty. She attended school. She worked out when working out was thought to be harmful. She paved her own way.
5. Leonardo Da Vinci
I feel like he had kind of a manic creative streak. I have those from time to time. All I want to do is create for 24 hours and then I am done for like 3 months. I want to read more about him.
6. Betty White
I think she changed a lot of things in her world. She also knew when to stand and fight and when to just let some stuff go and laugh it off.
7. Duncan Hines
One simple thing changed his life. One simple Christmas Card put into motion a whole chain of events that changed his world. I need to remember that simple things can change our world.
8. Marjorie Merriweather Post
Trust your instincts. Her father had past and her husband was in charge of post cereals. She met a guy who made frozen food taste delicious. She said " we need acquire his business". Her husband a brilliant money guy kept putting it off. They eventually bought it and Post Cereals became General Mills.
9. H.J. Heinz
I love Ketchup but that's not the only reason. He didn't like the taste of his food. He wanted to create something that made it taste better. He kept failing and trying and failing and trying but then he got it. I want to keep trying.
