Money Blockages; Money is Energy

Many people have blockages against money. They subconsciously reject money, and block themselves from having more money in the future than they have today. This problem stems from many things – when they discover those things and clean them, a person can make a lot more money than they ever have before.

Without finding and cleaning those limiting factors, it’s extremely difficult to make more money – or, we sabotage ourselves once we have the extra money by losing it or wasting it; or, our it is taken from us in various ways. When that happens it’s easy to say “see! I told you I’m never allowed to have more money!” and, in a way, that’s true. But the restriction is not from the outside, it’s not “The Man holding you down”, it’s actually internal.  That’s Good News – it means you have jurisdiction over it – so you can fix it.

Money is not evil or good. If you feel any differently, then you have something to clean in yourself, about money.

Money is energy. What you do with this energy is what’s important. You can use your energy for good, or bad. The same is true for all energy you have – body energy, feeling energy, thinking energy, talking energy, gasoline you put in your car, etc. Having more money-energy won’t suddenly make you a bad person, or a good person, for that matter. You are still you, rich or poor or somewhere in between.

Money Restrictions Inside of Us

1. movies you may have watched

  • “Other People’s Money” – greedy business man is the only one with lots of money; takes money from others through deceipt and deception; hurts everyone while laughing maniacally about it.

  • movies with the theme of: do anything you want to do, run away, destroy stuff, don’t learn anything or get good at anything; forget everyone else!

  • violent movies where the good guy can only win by killing all the bad guys

2. stereotypes in our consciousness

  • greedy businessman

  • money-grubbing businessman

  • “what-can-I-do-you-for” salesman

  • losing money through investments

  • thief will steal my money

  • car repair shop up-sells you to get more money out of you

I’m not saying these things don’t exist – of course they do.  But if your subconscious decides that ALL businessmen are evil, ALL car repair shops are going to up-sell you and lie to you, not only is that wrong but it blocks you from being involved in those things in a beneficial way. Maybe you could be the greatest car-repair person, it’s what you love, but you’ll hold yourself back because of these misanthropic stereotypes inside of you. You should be allowed to be involved in anything, everything, without limit. You should be allowed Freedom.

Finding Your Money Restrictions

Figure out what is limiting you about money, then take steps to fix those limitations. Each specific limitation may make sense to you, or they may not – either way it can be very powerful. For example, you may realize you have a thought-pattern someplace inside of yourself that says, “anytime I have more than $3000, I lose it.”  Or maybe, “I do not deserve to hold a check in my hands that says $20,000”.  Really?  Why?  Try to tune-in to your personal limitations, even if it doesn’t totally make sense to your brain. “If I have $50,000 or more, I will be attacked.” It doesn’t make sense, but it can be a powerful blockage inside yourself that you need to clean. These things are not helping you, they are only hindering you and need to be cleared away.

Look back at your past experiences with money. What’s the most money you’ve ever held in your hand?  In your bank account? For how long? What feelings came up? What thoughts? What happened afterwards with the money? What mistakes have you made with money? What successes have you had with money?

A lot of our negative emotions and responses around money come from:

  • our parents or grandparents

  • our friends

  • our coworkers at our job/school

  • our spouse/significant other

  • the society we live in

  • the media we absorb (news, movies, music, games, YouTube)

In fact, if you experience the negative side of money in 3 or more of the above areas, you certainly will believe it, for no other reason than “everyone around me agrees”.  You aren’t even getting a chance to think about it and decide for yourself. Your society decided for you, and told you the way it is.  That’s not Freedom. You deserve to think for yourself, and make personal decisions in your life, and everyone around you needs to respect that.

Fixing Your Money Restrictions

Once you’ve found 1 or 2 or 3 of these restrictions, it’s time to start cleaning them.

To clean the emotional side of your monetary limitations use the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), documented in various places on the Internet. There are free instructions for how to do this procedure for yourself, which is harmless and very beneficial at the same time.

Use the Tapas Acupuncture Technique (TAT) to clean the emotional side of your money limitations, as an alternative to EFT. Both TAT and EFT are very powerful techniques, and both freely documented on the Internet.

I am not posting links to these, you can find them yourself if you are really interested in helping yourself. Nobody else can fix your limitations, just you.

We don’t publicly have very many ways to overcome mental obstacles and hangups, yet. Society needs to fix this. Once you have overcome many emotional issues and seen the positive results, look for ways to clean these issues in the mental part of yourself. Find new ways to think. Simplify your thinking. Find the positive side to everything in your life – it takes creativity and can be a real challenge to find them. But you can.

Use the “as-if” technique to heal some separation issues within your mind. This is when you catch your mind saying, “that person is completely wrong and dumb, I’m glad I’m not them.” You stop yourself and say, “let me see it from their point of view. What was their past experience that would make them say that? do that?” Put yourself in their shoes. Because the truth is, you’re still you, there’s no danger in thinking this way. You can see life thru their eyes for a moment without losing yourself. You might be surprised that they have more dimensions to themselves than you first thought.

You can use the “as-if” technique to get more comfortable with a future that you want to experience. What would it be like if you were that person driving the high-end car, wearing the nice jewelry? Of course that could be you – so be them, for a moment and see what their life is like. Don’t know what their life is like? Find out. Talk to them. See what they’re seeing. You can choose to accept it or reject it – but you have to know what it is, first, to do that.

Visualization is a powerful thing for the mind. You can use it to burn up obstacles once you find them. There are many good visualization exercises in books like:

Root of Bad Businesspeople

The root problem behind the “cheating/stealing businessman” misbehavior is the OLD way of thinking about business (which some people still think, even today): the win/lose idea, also known as zero-sum game. It’s a very old viewpoint that’s completely outdated today, where the person believes that in order to have more, other people must have less. They take from others in order to have.  But that’s not really how the world works, even though it may seem like it to their misguided mind. Many people were raised to think this way; mentally intelligent people are some of the worst subscribers of this incorrect thought form.

The world around us actually works as a Win-Win scenario.  For me to win, I need you to win as well.  How is that possible?

Trees and People – A Natural Example

You inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. You can’t breathe carbon dioxide. Something needs to provide more oxygen, again and again throughout your entire life, or you will die.  It turns out trees and plants take in carbon dioxide, and emit oxygen!  Both life forms win, that way.

Real Estate Investing – Done Properly

Three siblings inherited a house from their recently deceased parents which they want to sell and split up the money. They don’t want to fix it up but it’s in bad disrepair, so it won’t sell for much. They don’t care, they just want the money fast. So they sell it to an investor quickly for cash – they’re happy now because they got $150,000 for the place, which split 3 ways is a decent amount of money for each person.

The investor spends lots of time and money fixing up the property repairing various problems that accumulated over time (replacing water turn-off valves that are frozen stuck, replacing the roof that is worn out, painting and repairing cupboards and walls, modernizing the kitchen, doing landscaping, etc.). The investor then sells the property a few months later for a lot more money. The investor is happy because they recovered all their costs and made some money as well.  The new buyers of the property are happy at the price, because it was $5000 below the usual sale price for this type of property in this neighborhood; and because everything is all fixed up and fresh. The contractors who worked on the project were paid everything in a timely manner, so they’re happy. Paint, supplies and parts were purchased, so local businesses benefited; the local economy is boosted a little bit. And the neighbors are happy because their view has improved – a freshly painted house, trees and shrubs trimmed nicely, and junk that had accumulated in the yard is cleaned up. The property values of other houses in the neighborhood are a little higher now because this house is cleaned up and looks nice again. Everybody wins.

All businesses founded on the principle of Win/Lose are going to die off.  New businesses founded on Win-Win will eat their lunch – take their customers and all their business. It’s already happening, you can see it in the most modern businesses on the Internet and in the world, today. Businesses with a specific goal to dramatically help their customers end up growing bigger and more successful. Businesses that are just in it to make money for themselves are shrinking and losing business. It’s dangerous to think the old way, today. It’s time to think new.

Being Dishonest Costs More Than It’s Worth

If I screw you in a business dealing, you will never work with me again. Why would you? So, I have to spend all my time looking for new business, starting from ground zero every time, which is by far the hardest way to run a business. And its the most dangerous, because I’m constantly creating gigantic risk for my business – any one of these people could sue me, spending lots of my money and time with expensive lawyers and court rooms. That’s not a good business plan.

A better business plan would be to make sure that my customers and my business partners get everything they were promised.  Maybe more. Now will you do business with me again? Of course you will. Return business costs a lot less. We can make money together, again and again. Partnerships, joint ventures work this way. Happy customers are a powerful thing for a business to have. Why would any business person not want to do it this way?  For me to win, I have to make sure you win. Even if I make a little less on this one deal, its still a huge win in the long run.

Here’s an example.  You and I have a business deal together, where we’re both supposed to make $5000 each.  But I find a tricky legal way to get an extra $1000 away from you; you will only get $4000, and I will get $6000.  But, despite knowing this trick, I ignore it and stick to the deal as we agreed – so you get your full $5000. And, once the deal closes, I additionally send you a thank-you card and a $50 gift certificate for the movies. Surprise! You’ll want to do business with me again next month – when we both make another $5000 each, and the next month we do that again, next month again, etc.  By giving up $1000 of stolen money, I made $15000 more with you, which I couldn’t have done before creating a happy relationship with you.

And that’s not considering the moral or karmic consequences from stealing from other people. Those are even stronger arguments, however, not everyone in our society has a balanced moral compass; not everyone believes in karma, which is why I explained it the way I did, above – proof using only money and business and numbers.

Karmically, Win/Lose is more Lose; not as much Win. If you steal $100 from someone, sure, you gained $100. But they lost $100 plus they get to experience the massive emotional distress of realizing someone stole something important from them! The pain from that experience could be the equivalent of $10K, $20K, $100K monetary value to them! Then they tell people in their family what happened, which makes their family sad – that’s more lost value. Then they spend money on a way to lock down their money in the future; they buy a safe, a wallet with a chain, a concealed gun to carry around… that’s even more lost value. All so you could gain $100. Looking at it from an overall-perspective, it was not worth it.

In fact, I propose you try doing the exact opposite – if you see someone not watching their wallet and it occurs to you to steal $100 from them, then do this:  take $20 from your own wallet and add it to theirs when they’re not looking, and watch what happens.  Now you are down $20, but they gained a lot more than $20!  The joy and amazement they’ll experience at seeing something magical happen that NEVER happens in our society – more money appeared out of nowhere! When does that ever happen? Never – but you made it happen.  How will doing this make you feel, too?  Even if you don’t get to see them “discover” it, you know they will later… do you think you’ll feel anything special from that?  And what equivalent amount of money is that feeling worth for you? More than $20….

The Inside Scoop

Win/Lose is created by the Lower Mind which is the logical, separative, calculating part of our mind. Limitation.

Win-Win is created by the Higher Mind which is sometimes called the Heart, or Intuition. Limitlessness.

The lower mind is not a bad thing – it’s just a different tool than the higher mind. We have both, we need both.

The lower mind speaks loudly; the higher mind whispers quietly. Meditation can help you calm and control your lower mind, allowing you to hear your higher mind.

We’re trained in school to operate our Lower Mind, but never taught to operate our Higher Mind. Most of our media is filled with lower-mindedness, rather than higher-mindedness.  Modern business is founded on lower-mindedness.  That is why it’s much harder to find Win-Win solutions at first. That’s why so many more people think Win/Lose instead of Win-Win.

In the future great schools will teach Higher Mind, and Win-Win scenarios for all age groups. The teachers will be surprised to find how easily young children accept these ideas naturally.

In the future great business entrepreneurs will make a tremendous amount of money and success with the Win-Win principals. Actually, many are already doing this today. It needs to be expressed publicly, and demonstrated for everyone.

What examples of Win/Lose have you experienced in your life?
What examples of Win-Win have you experienced in your life? Try to find 3 examples.
Is there a decision you are thinking about that looks like Win/Lose, today? How could you change it so everyone involved gets what they want or need? How different does that solution look from your current one? Is it a practical solution? Can it be made practical? How can you present this alternate solution to the other people involved?

When you learn how to create Win-Win situations with other people in your life, by practicing it, you won’t believe how your life will change for the better. You can do it.

Higher Internet

There is a higher Internet that exists on the Higher Mental plane.

I am not sure whether it existed before the physical-plane Internet did; let’s say earlier than 1990. I never dreamed about anything remotely related to the Internet before that time, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t exist.

I believe that when we build things on the physical plane, it customizes our minds down here to understand that certain things are possible, and gives us the ability to believe and to think in that way.  For example, before the USA and Russia sent rockets into outer space, and before Russia put up Sputnik (the very first orbiting satellite), Humanity’s consciousness largely did not include the thought of flying to other planets, other worlds. Sure, there were science fiction stories in the 1950’s thru 1970’s that talked about it, maybe a few before then even, the idea was just being born in our consciousness; but that type of story was not main-stream until much later. Most people did not read such stories.

When we create things on the physical plane, it opens our minds to understand and believe it, to form the mechanisms of how it works, and to cure our misbelief that “it can’t be done.”  I’m sure that this, in turn, enables our higher minds to participate in related things on the higher levels.  And if it doesn’t exist on the higher levels but would be useful up there, I’m sure that some of us participate in creating in there, and sharing it with everyone on those levels.

I have many memories now over the past 5 – 10 years about my experiences with the Higher Internet.  I’ve seen it operating, I sent messages to other people, I received visual messages and audio messages (like voice-mail); I remember “checking my messages” before waking up in the morning – and hearing the voice of a friend, with background sounds, just the same way I heard it the night before; it was obviously recorded, in my voice-mail, and I hadn’t deleted it yet.

When I woke up, many things struck me from that experience: My waking consciousness has no idea who that person is, though my higher-self remembers it’s my good friend, we talk a lot, and he was telling me something interesting.  I remember hearing a background noise of a vehicle going by behind him, and I remember hearing it at the exact same moment, in the same way, same volume, same everything – when I listened to it just before waking up the night before!  And, my emotional fear was saying “maybe there’s a truck coming towards me? I need to turn my head and see it, and get out of the way?” But no, there was no truck, I didn’t need to see anything; which is unusual – if this sound I was hearing was an Astral experience, my fear would have CREATED a truck for me to have to escape out of the way from; but nothing like that happened; nothing escalated, nothing transmogrified into my fear-based imagination. That’s one way I know it was on the Mental level, above Astral.

I have seen news on the Higher Mental plane, I’ve watched movies there (including some that my closest friend created), and used this Higher Internet to locate beautiful works of art – following the “clickable link” from paintings in the gorgeous art studio (more beautiful than any I’ve seen in our physical world by far), over to the actual original painting hanging on a wall in a building on a planet that I’ve never visited before.  In fact I was fixing all the “links” in the art studio, by following them and locating the painting if it had moved, and re-connecting the link, to make it easier for other people to do the same — zoom themselves from the displayed-art to the actual original artwork by the original author!  That is just one role I’ve played in improving the Higher Internet.

Sometimes experiencing something in our Physical world becomes an immensely important experience for life on the higher worlds.

When you do something in our world, and just as you learn it you end up never needing to use it ever again – you might think to yourself, “what was THAT all about? What a waste of time!” But the truth is, you didn’t waste your time. You learned something new. You trained yourself on something useful that you didn’t know before. That can be extremely useful on the higher levels.

Learn and do all that you can in our world, especially things you’re drawn to learning and doing. Don’t worry about when or where you’re going to use the skills and knowledge. On some level you may already have used them. You might be surprised how these most interesting things come in handy for you, somewhere, some day.

Great Beings in the Higher Worlds

In the Higher Worlds, there are great beings you can meet who have special skills in every avenue in life: Science, Art, Music, Education, Finance, Philosophy, Technology, Communications, and so on.

On the Higher Mental plane there are many people from many levels, including people who are much more spiritually advanced than we are, who live primarily on the Higher Mental plane and levels above that. They live very balanced lives that enables them to work on many exciting projects that are interesting to them, on topics that they are experts at. They work on projects that will help on many levels, including levels lower than themselves, like the Physical and Astral levels that affect us.

They work on new projects and make new discoveries, simplify things, connect things, and explain things to those who are interested. If you are able to visit the Higher Mental plane, you can join them and help them with their research projects, and contribute to great causes – and have a lot of fun in the process.

You Probably Work With Them

If you are scientifically minded you might join some of these great, great scientists in their every day work. And it’s not that big a deal; you don’t get super excited and nervous to meet them – you meet them on their own level, and they have respect for you just as you do for them. You try to understand their project and how you can help, and they try to understand your skills and limitations, to find the best way that you can help advance the project. It’s really fun and freeing and expansive feeling to do this.

When you’re meeting with these scientists and artists and philosophers on the higher levels, you can see them and hear them face-to-face just like in our physical world. But also, you can feel them – you feel their presence.

Hearing Meaning in Their Words

You also hear more than just their words; you receive the meaning that was intended, when the words were spoken, so there cannot be any misunderstanding of what was meant. It’s not like down here on the Physical Plane, where someone speaks a short sentence to you and have to figure out mentally what the heck they’re talking about, based on the context at the time, what the meaning could be, what related info is related or not related, how their background differs from yours, the meanings of acronyms you aren’t familiar with; none of these things are an issue on the Mental plane.

On the Mental plane you have an understanding of the thoughts that the person sent you at the same time as hearing the words. Perhaps the sound carries the thought? I know that in the Physical Plane, sound can carry thought; I’ve experienced that on a couple of occasions. This happening is a regular occurrence on the Mental plane, it’s just the way things are there, all the time.

You don’t even have to be looking at the person to be talking to them; you can just be mentally connected with them; understanding with them, thinking with them, listening to them, solving problems with them and conversing with them. Maybe they aren’t even in the same room with them, it’s possible; but sometimes you’re standing just next to them and you can feel their presence with you, and you can just communicate with a few words, and boom, the meaning gets across.  You can ask a question quickly and instantly they answer is given to you in just a few words and you clearly understand it.

Person Qualities – the Feeling of Them

When you meet some of these high-level people, sometimes they have special qualities about them. They have a feeling about them that feels like them – a unique, indistinguishable feeling that they are really them. They don’t have to speak or be seen by you, but you can sense them and know without a doubt it’s really them.  On the Physical Plane we only have this kind of sense (if we’re lucky!) with a few people: maybe our mom and/or dad, a close brother or sister, our beloved spouse; someone we spent a large part of our lives being very close to with our hearts. On the higher levels it can happen with anyone you get to know, any friends you have there, it’s very common and normal there.

Thinking about this reminds me of how I felt my grandmother’s presence in my bedroom a few days after she passed away, when I was a teenager; I clearly knew it was her, I could feel her presence near me and watching me, loving me and encouraging me and so proud of me. She was saying goodbye as she moved on, and wanted me to know that she loved me and is very proud of me. I could clearly tell, the feeling was so strong, and it really felt like her. That strong feeling of her never happened again.

It’s a very very unique feeling.  I know I have this feeling with my father, and my mother. I can remember the memory of their feeling, they each have a unique feeling unlike anybody else I’ve ever met, anywhere.

I know this doesn’t happen that often on the Physical Plane, but it definitely happens a lot on the higher levels.

Music in Their Presence

Another quality some of these advanced beings have is music in their presence – you can hear a background music playing. It’s not loud, but it’s clearly there, you can hear every note, and it fits perfectly with their presence, their intention, their action and intention at the time and place where they are. It’s like the sound track of their life, right at that moment, which involves you too because you are in their presence. I guess they hear it too, I’m not sure; I think they consciously choose the music, and can adjust it; it’s just part of their expression of existence on that level.

You know how you can get a song stuck in your head, and you can’t get rid of it for a period of time? Recently I had the same song constantly with me throughout the day, day after day for almost a week.  As soon as I’d wake up in the morning it would start playing again, and I would carry it with me all day. That kind of song colors your life, a bit, affecting the way you feel and the things you do, the way you speak, how you react to other people and conditions, somewhat; and so forth. It sets the tone of you, a bit. Well you’re the only one who can hear it. But what if others could hear it too? What if you could turn it off and on at will? What if the volume was never too loud to interfere with any other sounds or communication?

You can make the music-in-your-head come to an end, but you have to hold it to that – it takes practice to keep it from coming back again in a minute or two, because it usually wants to come right back again.

A better example of this musical existence would be like in High School when you’re hanging out with all your best friends, you’re all walking together, or biking, or sitting, you’re all focused together on something, and one of your friends brought their boom box, playing your group’s favorite songs. You hear it and feel it, you’re in it, connected to it. It feels so epic – like you’re on top of the world, invincible, energized; it just feels right in a way that’s hard to describe unless you’ve experienced it. On the Higher Mental plane it’s not that emotional, it’s like a refined version of that, a distilled, purified version of that feeling. It’s beautiful and perfect.

It’s interesting to listen to the music that is the background music of an advanced person on the Mental plane. It’s a little bit like in a movie when an epic moment is happening and the music sweeps into a crescendo; some TV shows do this near the end of the episode to great affect. This strikes a chord in us down here, because it’s a real thing on the higher levels. Even if we don’t have direct conscious memory of it, it’s there as a great part of human happiness and existence.

Continuous Music

On the Mental plane these songs do not have a beginning, middle, and end like songs do in our world.  These songs keep going and going; climbing up and down, growing and shrinking like the waves of the ocean, and the tide; always completely appropriate to the situation going on with the person creating the music.

I most recently heard a person’s music like this in my dreams last night, there was a woman who was helping me learn how to use a kind of tool or vehicle better on the Higher Mental plane, and I noticed her music and listened to it for a second or two while working with her on some project. Another time I recall hearing my dad (one of my meetings with him a year or two after he had passed away). He was playing a Jazz song that he really liked, and wanted everyone nearby to listen to it (typical dad!) It sounded nice, very crisp and clear and perfect, but it just wasn’t my kind of music.

Let’s Research This

People need to think about these experiences, study them, write about them, and discuss them together. How does this mechanism work? Who can do it? Can it be learned? Can it be taught? How advanced to you have to be to do this? What aspect(s) of self-development does it take to do this? Can we actually make progress here on the Physical Plane that helps us achieve this on higher levels? What is the work we do here, to achieve that?

It sure would be cool to be able to do that down here on the Physical Plane.

Animals visit the Astral Plane, Stopping Nightmares

I believe that animals visit the Astral plane sometimes when they go to sleep. Sometimes when our dog sleeps, he has a nightmare where he has to bark at something. Maybe an enemy dog, or an invading cat, who knows what it is. Our dog never barks in waking life, he’s a breed who just doesn’t do that, unless there’s a serious emergency of some kind. I’ve only heard him actually bark twice in the 7 years we’ve had him.

But last Monday, and again today, my nice doggy was sleeping on his cushion while I was working in the office. He started yipping a little bit, and began barking a kind of restrained bark, his whole body shaking from the activity. He was dreaming a bad dream, and when I touched him to pet him and reassure him, he flinched and woke up, and raised his head a bit to look at me.

I knew what to do, what I always do to stop nightmares.  I got out the eucalyptus oil.

Eucalyptus oil helps fend off bad energies and forces and thought forms from your body if you need it, and is especially good at stopping nightmares when you are going to sleep at night. I’ve used it for years, it’s really really good at this.

I open the bottle and cover the top with my fingers, then tip it upside down for a moment to wet my fingers. Then I pet my nice doggy’s fur, down his back, on the top of his head, and a little on his belly.  I try not to get too close to his nose, since dogs are so sensitive to smells – and eucalyptus oil is seriously pungent and strong.

He went back to sleep both times (yesterday and today) – with no nightmares.  Unlike previous times where I didn’t use the oil, and after waking him up and seeing him go back to sleep, he had nightmares a second time, right away.

Another way you can use it is to put a bowl or cup of hot water in the room, and add 2-3 drops of oil in it. You don’t need more than that to fill the whole room with the nice aroma of eucalyptus.

This stuff really works in my experience.

If you want to buy some, try to find the purest eucalyptus oil you can get. No extra ingredients.

I recommend it for people and doggies alike.

Dream-Experiences Stick With You

Have you ever had a dream that was so cool, it impressed you so much, you just couldn’t stop thinking about it the next day?

Some dreams stick with you, even years later.  You’re able to still remember and marvel over what happened in that one dream.

When that happens it was probably an out of body experience, not just a plain dream. You were probably on a higher level when you experienced it, you may have experienced it with as your higher self, and it left such an impression on you that your lower physical-world consciousness was aware of it happening too.  Sort of like if you’re doing something and people are talking nearby but you’re ignoring it; then, all of a sudden their subject changes to something unusual, something you’re interested in, or possibly about you; suddenly your ears perk up and you can’t avoid listening to the discussion even though you’re still busy doing what you were doing.

I have experienced this many times, I’ve been to many places over the years that were each completely different from each other, and brought back memories of entire segments of the experience that were amazing. My creative imagination is just not capable of coming up with such rich, diverse scenarios that stay consistent during the time I’m visiting them – it’s got to be something more than pure imagination.

You might experience visiting unusual lands with different colors than where we live, being in amazing class rooms in a school, meeting interesting teachers, working on group projects with good friends, visiting laboratories or facilities, being involved in battles against unknown bad guys, exploring new buildings or campuses with amazing architecture, saving someone’s life, communicating over the Higher Internet, or playing virtual-reality games that would blow your mind.

Not only are these things amazingly fun while you’re experiencing them, but they’re fun to remember when you wake up. If you write them down after you wake up, as best as you can, you’ll have a reminder of so many more details that could get fuzzy over the next 10-20 years.

The main dream-experience sticks with you the rest of your life.
