Manifesting dreams by changing inner dialogue

Trust in the future is when you are connected to, or learning, your intentions from the inside out …..

In a previous post I mentioned how the experience of the first eight months of this year has increased my focus on a couple of life areas that I hadn’t given much attention to in past years. One was my relationship of a significant other and the second was having space that felt like my home.

What I had been experiencing in those two life areas came from neighbours. One was an older married man who became a stalker and a large family next door who turned out to be a part of a bigger family circle of whom owned the house I was in. It was an unwelcome experience that lacked boundaries and became what I can only call as having watchers. I also had to insist they stay off the property as my office was located off the garden which resulted in a level of hostility in the masculine householder that was at a level not appropriate for the circumstances. They felt an ownership over the property. I simply wanted my clients to feel comfortable in movement sessions.

Even without clarity in these two life areas, home and relationship, I did include them in my own goals for the last few years in a sketchy way. The universe must have been listening as last fall a bomb blew up my lifestyle. That bomb was the stimulus to forcefully manifest some long term goals that I had been considering for two previous years yet couldn’t see a way forward and was stuck. I hadn’t anticipated fulfilling them would be out of my control or dramatic as it was. I am thankful that this blow up was my residence and business location and not my health. The universe has its own wake up calls.

I am also grateful I made a decision not to lock into something in fear and make immediate commitments. I still didn’t have a dream. When the bomb blew up it stimulated inner questioning of a third life area, my own career and it’s direction. I took a leap of faith and an attitude of seeing what came to me. I was open to anything being possible. This became a discovery of who I am, and what I can do.

I had three life areas that represented stability all without a hard focus; home, career and relationship. All three are the cornerstones of groundedness and stability. These three areas reflect basic needs for survival; shelter, food and water, and any one of them would influence the other six life areas; wealth, health, future, spirit/knowledge, community and fame.

Now preparing materials for others to put their next year intentions to paper I began reviewing my own. I get how transitional this year has been so far. Yet I have discovered a new dimension of integration of my own dreams into a core experience, while simultaneously believing in them as though they have actually happened. It’s a new way of manifesting them. Like attracts like. All these years of emphasising this to others to try and challenge their resistance for taking actions and now here is my own experience of it. This time with a deeper personal connection to this statement. I have finally found the piece that has been missing for me in that popular nineties philosophy – the law of attraction.

What I am most proud of is how the guidance is a pattern for creating a new inner language. By following the program over the years since developing it myself, it has created a new inner way of speaking that I can describe as one of achievement. One that makes things possible. There is no trying or effort. It is simply a pattern of learning that appears can change the inner dialogue process. I am ecstatic to experience this new dimension of being able to manifest from a core level of connection to myself that is not influenced by mainstream ideologies.

I write about a concrete example of this direct core action in Finding my breath and motivation after COVID (?) has been like creating lemonade from a lemon.

I am reminded that this is what I mentor to others. Now connecting to this dimension for manifesting dreams myself I look forward to being able to support their deeper connections to actively becoming their own intentions.
Being in a circle with one of my mentors in 2004, Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, Phd & Author of Nonviolent Communication, A Language of Life, I reflected on his question on where we as individuals could see ourselves taking these teachings. I knew in my heart that I wanted to integrate this language into the somatic journey of the Feldenkrais® Method of Somatic Education. In Feldenkrais there are two ways of offering movement education we call Awareness through Movement and Functional Integration. Each one is focused on patterns for the participant to become self-aware versus being told what to do. One is hands on called FI for short and the other are group lessons called ATM for short. This goal program that I call Awareness through Goals is an added functional dimension of human behaviour and the missing piece in the Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education for me. It is the development of inner dialogue that becomes thinking and ways we communicate. By following the goal pattern one integrates universal values into their very conscious way of being from which all action springs from. Marshall it’s taken close to two decades to achieve this. I hope you and Robert Gonzales are watching over and smiling your approval.

The only way to change is action

Be the Master Creator of your 2021 experience

Integrate intentions with ease & enjoy the process for creating a new & successful living pattern through the development of  new neural pathways

Increase brain function to generate healthy body, mind, emotional & spiritual health going forward into 2021

Tap into your inner creativity 

Any meaningful change begins when you notice what you would like to do differently in a non-judging way 

Harnessing right & left brain function equally for the journey into 2021 for better outcomes

Creativity through right-brain activities, such as art, crafts, writing, music and walking in nature, can turn ones illusive longing into obvious statements before left-brain goal planning even begins.  Leadership  through a right-brain activity can tap into all bodies of function creating a healthier balanced approach.

Activating goals this way (by integration of all bodies of human function) can create a living force and increase one’s will to achieve them.  Integration of all bodies of human function includes a focus of attention equally on the physical, cultural, perceptual, emotional and mental bodies.

Harnessing the mental thinking mind to give it guidance can support a fuller wholesome experience.  The difference is that the creative process in included versus simply engaging logic for figuring out strategies or solutions.  More on how the a dominant focus on the mental mind can influence self-judgement below.


Resolution statements taps only into your mental body.  This mental body has been culturally educated to respond to the world through the following reactions:

What this means for you for becoming the change you want to be

Resolution statements activated from the left-brain may focus on short-term goals and not lead to a lasting change that integrates into long-term lifestyle changes.  Adding right-brain activities can lead to a fuller integration leading to long-term lifestyle changes.  A focus only on the left-brain mental body can be its own driving force of single-mindedness that lacks balance and support for all functioning systems.  This approach has effort and can be controlling.  It lacks embodiment and eventually may become the source of depression.

Why?  Change declarations from thought function may only be influenced by outside stimulus like statements beginning with I should, or you should, that are based upon outside self-image and trends.  Long lasting and life-enriching change comes from the inside and goes beyond self-image and stimulus.  Logic of the left-brain is focused upon outside solutions and it is not an inside experience.   Meaningful change grows through the what if’s in a system of open exploration and not through a closed system of I/you should and should nots.

How to begin explore change verses forcing change through concepts

 Becoming the Master Creator in your 2021 experience

The steps of turning Intentions into Goals begins with exploring a vision of 2021.  It is then followed by noticing the illusive four walls of experience created by our seasons; fall, winter, spring and summer.  This connection to intention can then easily be turned into a doable guided pattern incorporating universal values, characteristics and qualities in a novel and uncluttered way creating new habits through the months and seasons.  The ease of learning is integrated through the experience from a simple guided pattern.  Awareness through creation using intention before action.

Turning intentions into doable goals in 5 easy, integrative steps

There are 5 fun and easy steps to activating the integration of intention and action in a meaningful way using a novel pattern to stimulate right and left brain functions with activities that can create life-enriching experiences and relationships.   As each step can be life-changing and integrative commit to spend time on each step before moving to the next one.  Direction suggestions will be given for each step.

Step #1 – The Foundation

Book time with yourself to focus your attention through your creative nature.  This step can be a private experience in your own space or shared with a friend group or spent privately with a mentor or coach.  It will take up to two hours to lay out the image with additional time to gather materials beforehand.  This initial step will be stimulating.  Let it digest for a minimum of three days before moving to step two.

What is stopping you from moving to a life of more joy?

The thinker

  • If you hesitate as you believe you are not creative, go beyond this thought and gather together some magazines, glue, scissors and some paper.   Create a collage mixing pictures and words that speak to you.
  • If you tell yourself you are dominantly a thinker, go beyond this thought and gather up some of your favorite magazines, glue, scissors and some paper.  Create a collage using words and include pictures that speak to you.
  • If you cannot devote this time to  be adventuresome and connect to  yourself and growth, pause and make a commitment and do it anyhow.  This is as important as eating, sleeping, and socializing, etc.  Perhaps even more important as it is the point of clarity and balance in  our natures.  It is invaluable learning and guidance that comes from  within.

2021 in numerology is a number 5

2021 becomes 221

2 + 2  + 1 = 5

What does this mean personally and as a society in this philosophy?

  • 2021

Twenty, twenty was the start of a new decade and when calculated in numerology 2020 becomes the number four.  Now a year later as we enter 2021 it becomes a number 5 with numerological calculations.   

Number five is is exactly what we need to follow 2020.  It represents a pivotal change that has already begun emerging in our experiences this fall   A five is about being in the present moment, exploring and being adventurous.  This number 5 experience is a perfect one to follow 2020.       The number four of 2020 was all about a new operating code, 20/20 vision and 4 walls.  Four walls in numerology is the metaphoric home we experience personally and collectively. Wow, how dead on has this been for 2020?

More on Renee’s 2020 Numerological predictions

Twenty, twenty-one is a Feldenkrais® Practitioners favorite type of metaphor as the influence in this somatic learning practice is the same essence as in a number five experience.  In Feldenkrais ones focus is upon cultivating inner awareness  by tapping into one’s five senses to hone one’s qualities of  spontaneity and adaptability.  The purpose is  to thrive in different environments and social situations.  A number five’s qualities also are spontaneous and adaptable for thriving in different environments and social situations, and it reflects the five senses.

  • #5

This is a Master number and represents change and accomplishment.   I personally love number 5 addresses as they reflect creativity,  fun and adventure versus the hard work  that #4 reflects.  This is a welcome sign for this coming year as the global societal shift continues.  Number 5 manifests dreams and turns them into reality  Thankfully the focus of attention of #5 is on humanity!

2021 has huge potential for building  new ways of exploring this new era signaled in during  2020 & experienced globally
  • #5

The qualities of a number 5 are:

  • 360 degree vision
  • adventuresome
  • explorer
  • exciting
  • fun
  • creative
  • flexible
  • adaptable
  • possibilities and sees the glass as half full
  • optimism

The areas of influence are:

  • change
  • resourcefulness
  • choice
  • motivation
  • adaptability
  • transformations
  • independence
  • dynamic
  • random energy
  • ability to think independently
  • good communication
  • logic
  • understanding
  • environmental awareness

The focus on humanities four walls of 2020 is now shifting onto humanity itself and the focus of society’s welfare is now expanding into creation.  The universally felt life changing shift in lifestyle and direction that began in 2020  is the new journey forward and brick and mortar walls will be changed forever.

The number four experience of 2020 has been true to its essence of  hard work. Now this emerging #5 essence is creating upon this new foundation with less effort.

Support the #5 influence needs  is structure

Number 5’s need the support of structure in order to accomplish their vision and new projects.  The energies of a #5 are fun and adventure and the potential is to start to many overlapping projects reducing the likelihood of completing them.  This would be a good time to consider creating a plan for the coming year to create a focal point for being successful.  There can be ease  through goals and value planning that is laid out in a guided pattern for easier integration and do-ability in a pattern of consciousness building that taps into what one longs to create.

Be the Master Builder of your 2020 experience

Integrate your intentions with ease & enjoy the process of creating a new & successful living pattern 

Tap into your inner creativity to Imprint your inner longings for 2020

Any meaningful change begins when you notice what you would like to do differently in a non-judging way.   Creativity through the right brain activities of art, crafts, writing, music and walking in nature can turn ones illusive longing into obvious statements before goal planning even begins.  Leading through a right brain activity can tap into all bodies of function creating a balanced approach.  Activating goals through integration of all bodies of human function can create a living force and increase the will to achieve them.  The functioning human bodies includes the physical, cultural, perceptual, emotional and mental bodies.

It’s time to harness the mental thinking mind and give it guidance to support a fuller wholesome experience.  More on how the a dominant focus on the mental mind can influence self-judgement below.


Resolution statements taps only into your mental body.  This mental body has been culturally educated to respond to the world through the following reactions:

What this means for you for becoming the change you want to be

Resolution statements activated from the left-brain may focus on short term goals and not lead to last change that integrates lifestyle.  Including aspects of right brain activities can lead to the integration of lifestyle change leading to long term change.   With a focus only on the mental body it generally becomes its own driving force of single mindedness that lacks balance and support of all functioning systems.  It can be controlling and eventually may become a source of depression.

Why?  Change declarations from thought function may only be influenced by outside stimulus, I/you should and self-image.  Long lasting and life-enriching change comes from the inside and goes beyond self-image and stimulus.  Meaningful change grows through a system of open learning, not through a closed system of I/you should and should nots.
