Why Your Dog Needs Dog Wheels

If you want your handicapped dog to lead a happy and complete life, then dog wheelchairs can do the trick. With wheelchairs, you can help your dog deal with its disability more easily and regain its lost mobility. There is no reason to panic now when your dog suffers from a sore back or has injured its limbs paralyzing it. A wheelchair can completely transform your pet’s life and give back its lost freedom. Additionally, a wheelchair ensures that no further damage is caused to the dog’s bones and joints.
Dog wheelchairs are particularly useful if the pet suffer from hip dysplasia, neurological disorders and arthritis. Wheelchairs give extreme comfort and aid during the post surgery period. They provide strength to the bones and muscles and help overcome the paralysis. The wheels and tough frame of the carts enables your dog to move around freely without hurting itself. Inactivity and reduced movement may cause the muscles of the animal to weaken and dry up. Dog wheelchairs fasten the healing process and help revitalize your pet’s muscles.
Arthritis and other degenerative diseases may reduce your dog’s movements, sometimes even rendering it immobile. Before the condition worsens and frustration sets in, fasten your dog with a wheelchair. Dog wheelchairs help in toning muscles and aids in workouts as well, thereby reducing the disease from further aggravating. Wheelchairs bring back the smile on your dog’s face making it playful as before and in the process help your dog to reclaim its lost energy. Immobility can even drive your dog into depression. By providing your dog with a wheelchair, you can reduce its boredom and depression as it can resume with its daily activities like before.black-dog-wheels
Dog wheelchairs normally comprise of wheels, a frame, harness and a saddle to support it. Some wheels also come with additional features such as stirrups and counterweights. In case your dog has injured any of its limbs, these features help in maintaining balance.
An adjustable strap is provided that helps the dog to fit perfectly in its wheels. A back support saddle will give support to your dog’s back and also provides grip to the underbelly. Some of the best wheelchairs are those that facilitate your dog to even swim in water. Hence, when buying a dog wheelchair, ensure that all the above mentioned features are in place. Poorly designed dog wheelchairs may increase the risk of more injury and hence it is better to go in for superior quality wheelchair for your best buddy.
Dog wheelchairs are crafted to help your dog overcome its immobility and paralysis. So, make the most of it and bring back the lost delight in your handicapped dog’s life. With a wheelchair, your dog will be able to resume its normal activities with ease.

Is “The Resonance Effect” The Definitive Reinvention Of Medicine With Frequency Specific Microcurrent?

The Resonance Effect, How Frequency Specific Microcurrent is Changing Medicine

the-resonance-effect-cover-200x300.jpgChiropractic doctor Carolyn McMakin’s book “The Resonance Effect” – North Atlantic Books – adds an interesting dimension to the hidden in plain sight world of microcurrent, that could, according to the author, possibly be the way to change the face of medicine with Frequency Specific Microcurrent, (FSM): The subtitle of her book”The Resonance Effect, How Frequency Specific Microcurrent is Changing Medicine” somehow implies that the physics of resonance easily translate into healing for her and her clients.

Branding her kind of microcurrent as “frequency specific” sparks interest, especially in regards to recent advanced microcurrent Russian research, and more of that later, so this seems timely and a great reason to read this. Also, with some form of electrotherapy having been around for thousands of years before being disavowed in the West in the 1920’s in favor of pharmaceuticals, the notion of using specific frequencies for specific ailments is very compelling. However, the author’s emphasis on frequencies may delude us from the fact that even with the simplest microcurrent device with only two frequencies built in, the same stupendous results she claims have been achieved already in the past.  This writer is an ardent microcurrent user, and this review is written with the intent to help microcurrent users, and user-to-be, not to get sidetracked or limited by this book’s emphasis on “specific frequencies” only microcurrent.

The mystery list of specific microcurrent frequencies

Author Carolyn McMakin’s is really “resurrecting” an electrotherapy treatment with frequencies widely used in the early 1900, and her story starts with Australian osteopath Harry van Gelder. coming from England to the U.S. in 1946 and buying himself a practice. And there, Harry found, left over in a back room, an old electrotherapy machine that came with a mysterious list of frequencies. The discovery story continues, some 40 years later, with Carolyn meeting George Douglas, who had trained a few months with Harry and he is in possession of that mystery list of frequencies. George, as her instructor in chiropractic college, manages to fix her shoulder with one of his nontraditional modalities, and Carolyn gets intrigued by the result. When they decide to partner up, he gifts Carolyn with a new microcurrent machine, and also introduces her to the frequency list. Full of doubts at first, together they venture out to test, if the frequencies list would work with a modern 2 channel microcurrent machine. Carolyn, having had her dreams of becoming a doctor squashed, but not her ambitions, has just freshly graduated as chiropractor doctor. Already she sets out, as her life goal, to validate that Harry van Gelder’s old list of frequencies actually can do something to help people, above all, that’s her mission, but doing it with the help of the frequency list.

Intuition vs. scientific inquiry

Intuition-vs-scientific-frequency-specific-microcurrent-e1502495867220-231x300.jpgIntuition-vs-scientific-frequency-specific-microcurrent-231x300.jpgThe list contains mysterious pairs of frequencies, one for body tissues and parts, and the other for different ailments. For years, Carolyn applies these frequencies to establish their efficacy in a scientific way, and to test which pairs of frequencies work for certain conditions in specific tissues, in a scientific way. But mostly, she is “intuiting” her own technique, initially.

She allows her intuition to be the guide, and she gives the reader a glimpse of it:  “Everything went quiet. There was a moment of inspiration and synthesis.  It just felt right.” In these moments she feels “resonance” happening. She has an especially puzzling case of neck pain client lying on her table. She writes: “A quiet prayer formed in my mind. Help”. While praying, she sees, in her field of vision, the pair of esthetician’s conductive gloves resting on that microcurrent facial machine for cosmetology treatments, done in her practice after hours. Her intuition tells her to put the two and two together: The gloves. The frequencies written on a card on her microcurrent machine next to her. “In my mind, I could suddenly see my hands in the graphite conducting gloves, and the current from one glove to the other through his neck muscles”.  She never had used the frequencies before, but “it felt right” to choose a specific frequency. And then the miracle happened. “His neck muscles melted”.  The conductive gloves she wears while she massages the client’s painful neck muscles turn hot, and so does the tissue under her hands, it dramatically softens, and at the same time the client reports warmth, tension release, and pain gone. Allowing inspiration, intuition to be part of her medicine, this the author calls having a resonant moment. Arguably, was that, in that resonant moment, an effect of frequency, or was it rather the effect of electricity on blocked energetics?

All Science starts with an observation

As much as this reader would like an explanation from her, what her “resonance effect” actually does effect in the body, in terms of biochemistry or electrobiophysics in order to bring about these sudden results, the author withholds that information, hopefully leaving it for another book? And alas, later in the book the author explains, it would take her more than a lifetime to explain this. So not in this lifetime.

And isn’t it more gratifying to have thousands of suffering people cured, than having some scientific healing model developed that sometime in the near future might be done with and replaced again with the next one?

Again and again in her book of her many success stories, she describes a similar sequence of events, that a sudden change happens, if the right frequency pair is applied. The conductive gloves she massages with, turn hot, tissues soften, and patients feel the tissue turn warm and instantly are pain free.

This warming effect by the way is not uncommon in microcurrent applications, especially in early sessions, and that without the use of any of the specific frequencies on her list.

“All science starts with observation”, she says. All this, she says, she had to” figure out, it was all trial and error and it took time…” She credits a lot of her findings to an inner quiet voice, calling it  “the sock puppet voice in my ear”.  Learning to follow that inner voice she says,”I learned that if a frequency was correct, it changed the tissue in seconds….The frequency had to match the condition and the tissue.”

How to spread the word about the “resonance effect”

spread-the-word-150x150.gifStarting in 1995, she combines her chiropractic treatments with the frequencies list and microcurrent and eventually is able to establish their efficacy. Over Guinness in a pub, together with her naturopath assistant, they create the branding “frequency specific microcurrent”, short FSM,  and a logo to go with. And having successfully tested which pairs of frequencies work for certain conditions in specific tissues and having developed them into protocols, she publishes her first paper. She presents her protocol for myofascial pain at the national meeting of the American Back Society, in 1997. Also, early in her career, she realizes that she has to spread the word among the next generation of health professionals and organizes her”Interdisciplinary Health Care Symposium”, bringing together medical school, chiropractor college, and naturopathic college students in her area. She then lectures in England, speaks at the NIH Grand Rounds as the first chiropractor ever in its history, presents at the IFM Symposium, and, starting in 2001, with George, teaches her sponsored FSM core seminars in Australia, and that for seven years straight. She has conquered doctors in numbers, won over chiropractors, naturopaths, dentists, scientists, massage therapists, even equine massage therapists and olympic sports trainers and athletes to believe in her system. And she states, that over 2000 licensed practitioners in eleven countries are using FSM now, although I read on the internet, it’s a much smaller number, and that might be an outdated number. Beyond a doubt, she gives her trainees solid advice, to stay below the radar of medical inquisition, and to play the game of “evidence-based medicine” in chapter 7 “How do you do that”. She tells them to “just follow the rules” (of the FDA) which certainly is not going to change medicine but will surely will keep them in practice, with that prudent attitude.

Her life is her work – rescuing patients

Packed with anecdotal case studies, her book is a good read, especially since she is quite refreshingly frank with her own life struggles. As a writer she successfully interweaves her own biography because it is so closely linked to her work.

Her life has not been easy, challenges are many and constant, her family challenges, her mother’s and then her own illnesses, her gruesome work schedule, all interwoven with case studies from extremely difficult client cases whom the medical system rejected and could not help. Yet, Carolyn comes to the rescue and they all get help from her growing list of frequencies and evolving protocols, (except those patients who drop out, seemingly lost but obviously having a secondary gain in being good servants to “traditional” medical indoctrination). By helping even the most desperate cases, especially with inflammatory diseases like chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, her practice flourishes, and with that specialty, her work load increases even more.  If Carolyn McMakin’s claims are as astounding as she makes us believe, then all alone she jumps to the rescue even when all other medical efforts fail. And sometimes when she jumps to the rescue, she overlooks her intuition to slow down. She gets severely ill several times, overtaxing her strength in working impossibly long hours, travelling constantly now to give seminars, teaching in clinical settings. She even ventures out into the sports arena and cures top athletes from their injuries for whole nights and days, because they are under time pressure, just like her.

A closer investigation into the resonance effect and FSM

A-closer-investigation-into-FSM-e1502496075107-300x225.jpgThe facts lead us to look at the subtitle of her book “How Frequency Specific Microcurrent is Changing Medicine” more closely. Is this actually the case? Is the medicinal cesspool going to be changed that way? Or is Carolyn’s desire a dream and her work doomed before it even gets going beyond her thousands of case histories? Has her job not been, so far, to pick up the broken pieces our medical system leaves behind? Does Carolyn have to do the mop up work, and business goes on as usual in medicine?

Let’s be practical here. A total medical reset is needed across the planet. The questions are numerous, but is Carolyn’s work the only representative of the most up to date research in microcurrent or simply a rehash of the other electrotherapy from bygone years? And what about the millions that are being funded by the pharmaceuticals with microcurrent implants?

Is medical practice, and starting out, medical education, not leaving out something really important, that is needed in order to heal? Is it her ability to allow into her practice, what doctors would call “unscientific methodology”, her enlisting a strong dose of inspiration, of intuition, poetry, even prayer, into her medical repertoire, all that what a classically indoctrinated medical doctor likes to call “woo-woo”? What does Dr. Carolyn have that medical doctors don’t? Is Carolyn McMakin ahead of the times? Or rather, did the medicine of old not have these qualities, when shamans and medicine men did the healing?

Woo-woo vs. resonance physics

Interestingly, Carolyn answers exactly that point.  Using as an example for resonance the key fob beeper on a car key chain, and how the car door gets opened or closed, she says “that’s not woo-woo or magic, it’s physics…..”. She insists on being scientific, yet she points out in her book how Harry van Gelder’s holistic concept of the body system is far ahead and superior to what today’s medical establishment parctices, and she acknowledges that medicine is as much a science as it is an art, or is that woo-woo again?  She insists on being scientificand part of the crowd even when the whole medical system is a convoluted cesspool of doctored double blind studies, pharmaceutical kickbacks, toxic vaccinations, cell cooking microwaves and WiFi blindness. It’s a miracle that she is still working with a medical licence. What is really her relationship to the medical system?

Electrotherapy history goes back thousands of years

Tesla-Electrotherapy-Medicine-273x300.jpgWhen teaching her first class in FSM, she afterwards bitterly regrets that she spent too much time on “historical, nonspecific microcurrent and not enough on frequency effects”. Was that the reason she now skips microcurrent history altogether in her book? But yes, in the beginning, the book goes into the history of electrotherapy a bit, just a little bit.  So bear with me when I’ll add some history on my own. Carolyn tells, that in the early 1900s electrotherapy was big in Europe as well as in America, and that electrotherapy had become hugely popular with doctors who used electricity to successfully treat an amazing range of different diseases. I remember a friend telling, living in Hot Springs, Arkansas, and on his almost daily visits to the hot springs seeing inside the bath houses displays of old electrotherapy devices (since then removed) hanging there from the early 1900. It is tempting to make the connection to Carolyn McMakin’s work, how it is based on just one of these old machines going back to 1922.  And connecting to the spirit of those times back then when all that, what we now call modalities, were all accepted ways to cure and coexisted peacefully in helping people, when these old ways were not coined “woo-woo” but employed for helping to heal, when  “Mother Nature” was still part of it, with walking barefoot in wet grasses, putting people high up in the Swiss Alps into sunshine and fresh air to cure lungs, and so on. The book explains, the demise of electrotherapy started in 1910 when the Flexner Report outlawed electrotherapy, and it was final around the Fifties when all electric equipment had ended up in back rooms with sheets put over them. Doctors would loose their licence when practicing any of it.

How the Flexner report has changed medicine

Flexner-Report-202x300.jpgThe Flexner Report had infiltrated medicine in a very unhealthy way and has to this very day, even though we have watered down “modalities” But there is this deep rift which pharmacology has created in medicine, with its insistence on chemistry only, leaving the benefits of physics out, as in Carolyn’s work, and the word physics only appears in adjunct therapies like physical therapy.

My own research shows that electrotherapy goes back a long way in history, from thousands of years in the Orient, to the use in ancient Rome of shallow ponds with electric eels to cure depression and lethargy, after second emperor of Rome Numa Pompilius building himself some kind of an electricity lab and experimenting and creating some kind of a battery, and up to the invention of batteries in the 1880s. Like Numa Pompilius maybe had found already, batteries created a dependable source of electricity, and that  made electrotherapy thrive in the early 1900. And then, how it got actively persecuted and squashed and killed off, nobody seems to talk much about or gets excited about much Although Carolyn gives us a short rundown on the Flexner Report, and I am grateful for that information, later on in the book she just sums up the demise of electrotherapy  with her detached statement ,” it fell out of favor”, just like Google almost belittles it as “funky looking electrical equipment that fell out of use in the 1940”.

But the author brings in the AMA but the  the blame rests on the Flexner Report, which as early as 1910 began to streamline medicine into a corporate moneymaking enterprise, and eventually outlawing electrotherapy devices. And squashing not only electrotherapy but everything non pharmaceutic or “alternative”, then in use, “like homeopathy”, in favor of surgeries and drugs. Forbidding doctors to use electrotherapy they were forced to give it up or go underground, and that created a huge disconnect in medical practice to this day.

The demonizing of electricity

Frankenstein-and-electrotherapy-227x300.jpgThat brings up the idea, that even Hollywood was employed in the Flexner demonizing electricity, with the “Frankenstein” movies to infiltrate and manipulate popular beliefs about electricity by giving it shock value, a jolt of horror to create fearful associations with electricity and electrotherapy to this day. This indoctrination is still in effect when friends and family show objections to trust the healing power of electricity, or even hesitate to try out a microcurrent device on their arm. How difficult it must be to market these to a mainstream audience I can only imagine.

RESURRECTION

Following the book’s story line, after being shut down for nearly seventy years or so, electrotherapy needed a “resurrection”, and for Carolyn resurrecting becomes the story of her life for Carolyn and the first chapter of her book, she calls it “Resurrecting Resonance”. To bring back electrotherapy it seems it took someone like Carolyn McMakin, inspired and totally supported by George Douglas, her mentor, and partner, and that forgotten machine from 1922, to double up with an ancient frequency and to turn it into a healing business again. As it turns out, the rest of the world has not been sleeping either. Europe did not have a Flexner Report, (although it is very probable, that the repercussions of that deleterious message indoctrinated medicine everywhere). And even before Carolyn’s scientific inquiries, micro had made strides already in Europe in the late Seventies. Microcurrent devices according to Google have been around since the 1980s. At that very time in Russia clinical trials had been done on 18,255 people with 88.25 cure rates in all major disease groups, with Scenar, and were published, and thousands and thousands of people in the meantime have been using handheld devices now for almost 25 years, here in the U.S. and elsewhere, with just as miraculous results as Carolyn. So, what is the big hush about microcurrent in her book? Maybe she is being prudent, because she does mention the FDA visiting and interrogating her for 20 hrs. and requiring a 14 page affidavit. Who then wouldn’t be afraid to talk too much about microcurrent?

Follow the money…

Is it, that microcurrent works so well, that the medical system wants none of it, and that because there is no money in it?

Is Carolyn McMakin just a singular phenomenon within the medical system, somewhere in the woo-woo category, but tolerated because she helped too many people to be ignored? And is the handheld pocket size very handy microcurrent device, only the very clever know about, a threat to the giant business of traditional blood and gore medicine?

Whatever the case, Carolyn McMakin’s effort is a heroic one and needs to be acknowledged big time, and having written her book she is going to be an important role model for many that way. She literally has helped thousands of clients out of their misery, and that’s really the book’s meant testimony. It is the sheer weight of her accomplishment, as a chiropractic doctor, her scientific exploration aside, that make her book, and her life story, so rich. And for the reader it’s a revelation of read about her client’s sufferings, last but not least coming from the ignorance of the medical system that cannot or does not help them.

Her case study results and successes are believable, yet we know, that’s what happens in the microcurrent world. What others might call miracles, that’s what the body does when charged up with electricity, employing its innate healing powers, and that is what everyone’s testimony of using microcurrent sounds like. And it’s common knowledge that it has been proven already in the original clinical trials in Russia back in the Eighties, with their phenomenal cure rates of 88.25 % in all the major disease groups, so that the results she gets are nothing new. Surprisingly the author never mentions any of this.

Her emphasis on specific microcurrent frequencies

Carolyn McMakin has worked very hard and long hours, and that for decades, diligently pursuing individual frequencies one by one and experimenting with each one of them, authoring 8 clinical research papers, and even a textbook for her thousands of students. She genuinely, through research and clinical studies, arrived at her system, crediting each specific frequency for her successes with clients, which were rejects from the medical system deemed “incurable”. And she decided to publish this frequency list and go public, and that way she avoids patenting, and anybody can go ahead and use them. The only thing, her FSM Advanced Course teaches an additional six hundred plus frequencies for additional tissues and frequencies.With that astronomical number of frequencies, to me it sounds impractical, when to me it does perfect sense to simply treat oneself with what she calls”nonspecific” microcurrent and get the results. It could, it seems, simplify that whole medical drama.

Insisting that only the “right frequency” for each different disease and only the right frequency for each target organ or tissue together do the trick, maybe deludes the fact that it is electricity that does the cure. Even the simplest and totally natural microcurrent stimulation with, say, grounding can render a similarly wide spectrum of results that can be attributed to connecting to the earth’s electron reservoir.

Will this narrowed down emphasis on specific frequencies not confuse the issue? That it is electrons as a pure energy source derived from electricity that do the healing, not a specific number of pulses or beats per second?

What  makes her claim seem an exaggeration and therefore unconvincing to me is her lack of exploration on her part, by disregarding the highly sophisticated handheld microcurrent devices on the market with millions sold. These also have specific frequencies, a simpler method of application, without gels or gloves and with high and ultra low frequencies.  One such line manufactured in the US are the FDA approved Avazzia microcurrent devices.  Also, the millions of SCENAR and DENAS devices which have been in use widely with even wider ranges of clinically proven results now in various medical disciplines. And similar to not mentioning the Russian clinical trials done with SCENAR  in the 70s and 80s, Carolyn McMakin’s perspective on present day microcurrent electrotherapy remains blotchy throughout the book,

Why no mention of neuropeptides?

The common ground is the use of microcurrent, the innate beneficial, healing properties and healing secrets of electricity.  But it is my understanding, that it is the whole range of frequencies in microcurrent electricity that, when infused into the body, recharges the system with enough energy to solve pain and mobilizes the self healing capacities in the body. As in the case of the before mentioned  microcurrent devices, microcurrent electricity also initiates the secretions of neuromodulators and neuropeptides, as newest research is pointing out, and not only for the rejuvenation, but the regeneration of tissues.

Medical-hamster-wheel-300x196.jpgApart from what successes she can claim in her doctor’s practice, Carolyn McMakin still operates within a system where the doctor-patient or therapist-patient dependency is fully intact. But then there is that ideal vision where patients are not getting sicker and sicker but are empowered to take charge of their own health, becoming independent of the medical system, by stepping out of the deadly medical treadmill altogether. People who are better informed about healthy lifestyle choices, trained to work with microcurrent devices they own. People fully aware of how their bodies work, using microcurrent in a responsible way, including the inevitable healing crises, and caring for their body’s electrical needs with their handheld devices. And just as intended by the Russian microcurrent inventor Dr. Karasev, these are aimed at bringing the patient from dependency on the medical system to medical sovereignty, getting him off the medical treadmill to take charge of his own health and well-being.

TENS vs. FSM

To the FDA, all microcurrent rates under the TENS category, approved for pain control only, the author informs us. Yet she barely mentions the significance of the signal’s difference between a TENS machine and microcurrent, or are they not different after all? To me, what she says is not in any way conclusive and it does not include biofeedback organic signal either. Carolyn informs us, that TENS units are only available by prescription from a health professional, but if you look on Amazon, there they are thousands of TENS 5 star reviews, from 30 dollars a piece. This, and other glitches make me wonder if there are more of them in her book that I might not be aware of.

I fully respect Dr McMakin’s contribution, her findings and results, and it’s quite engaged because of so many success stories she cannot fit them all in her book, as she says. And she seems to really engage with patients and all that, but all that she focuses on entirely are her findings and working with her frequency list. How come she is blind folded or keeps quiet about SCENAR, and that millions of other microcurrent devices are being used worldwide with even more profound successes than found in the Russian clinical trials already, with absolutely groundbreaking cure rates?

And when, only as a side line, the author mentions that other devices do exist, it almost sounds a little derogatory when she says

“there are other devices out there created to take advantage of the market FSM has created”.

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
Maybe Frequency Specific Microcurrent is marketing branding?

Which-came-first-the-chicken-or-the-egg-300x200.jpgIt appears from these facts that it’s not her aim to be a team player in the microcurrent world. It’s more that “my frequency or the highway” kind of approach. And that has happened, too, in other areas like in homeopathy. There seems to be, in medical science, this temptation to separate disease from the body. Instead, the body is a holistic vibrating system with cascades of microcurrent frequencies that have a wide homeostatic effect, from brainwave patterns to neurogenic secretions from nerve fibers, that’s what research says and proved to be the reason for SCENAR being so highly effective, and much easier to apply, with the Russian clinical trials back in the 1980 ties. All achieved simply with the same basic frequencies.  And the many people who had life changing healing success with the early banana shaped denas SCENAR which has only two specific microcurrent frequencies! And thanks to SCENAR inventor Dr.Alexander Karasev, who, as an electrical engineer, must have understood more than anybody about the healing powers of electricity, which, as newest electric engineering (Eric Dollard) attests, is sourced from outside of what was commonly believed, from out of the etheric realm.

To recap, this book is lacking in the data of what we know from microcurrent research that has been done for years by universities all over the world, data that show that there is a tremendous amount of activity that’s initiated by the microcurrent, or electricity, or electrons in the mitochondria and the subsequent chain cascade of reactions that happens. From what she calls “nonspecific microcurrent,” we microcurrent users already know, it is no big deal to dissolve scar tissue, it’s no big deal to soften muscles. What she claims as being miraculous, it’s kind of funny when it’s kind of ordinary in the microcurrent world. Then, Carolyn’s way might just be another “highway”, and, as the saying goes, many roads lead to Rome.

In her last chapter “In Their Own Words” the happy testimonials from patients, practitioners, and practitioners who were also patients, speak for themselves.

In the end I admit that trying to catch the author on gritty details does not do her justice. She has written a beautiful book. A book with much food for thought, and a bright future for health and wellness. Kudos!

Dreams – The Truth About How To Turn Your Dreams Into Reality – The Top 7 Steps

How To Turn Your Dreams Into Reality…

“The secret to change is one step at a time.” —Mark Twain

Everyone has dreams, visions or plans about things they’d love to have or to achieve. But too many of us have given up on them along the way. I remember working with a client who had dreams of becoming a writer. They were smart, articulate, well educated, but due to a bad experience in a College English class, the college professor called their writing style “amateurish and childish”, they stopped writing and so they gave up on their dream. My thought is that you only live once, so let’s figure out ways to truly live your dreams.

The eyes of a child. Sometimes it’s good to see things in a child like way. To be called childish though can hurt deeply especially if you’re pursuing your dream…

As happened with my client, words can have a big impact on us and I really hate it when words diminish our desire to pursue our dreams, but sometimes we allow them that kind of power over us…  Like everyone else, I too have been impacted by the words of others…I hope to use words in a different way though, too re-inspire you to follow your dreams… Having a dream is the easy portion. We all have dreams. Some are big dreams and some are small dreams. Transforming your dream into a reality can be far more challenging. However, with the help of proven techniques, you can get you from where you are to where you want to be faster than you thought possible.

Don’t buy into the hype that some people promote that you can just imagine your dreams and they will come true – you have to take some kind of action towards achieving them., it’s not a completely easy thing to accomplish your dreams, you definitely need to put in some hard work in order to achieve something worthwhile. It used to be, in many cultures, that it was inspiration from dreams that we had while asleep that we then took action on in our waking lives. So keep a look out for guidance from your dreams.

It used to be, in many cultures, that it was inspiration from dreams that we had while asleep that guided action on in our waking lives at times and hence the term “follow your dreams”. So keep a look out for guidance from your dreams.

Before you write this off as some crazy notion, let me assure you that sleep and dreams are highly important. In fact, it has recently been shown that sleep is vital to our success and well being because it is literally when new learning is consolidated and neurons grow. Scientists have shown this through the use of what’s called “light microscopy”

Now back to the Top 7 Steps To Turn Your Dreams Into A Reality. Here’s a process to follow to turn your dreams into reality.

1. Turn your dream into a goal and have a plan associated with it. When you have a goal, you have a true target. For a greater chance of success, your plan should have a deadline and it must be measurable. It has been said that dreams are objectives without a deadline. Devote yourself to steadily working towards setting a deadline and things will start to happen.Having measurable goals is important because without them you really have no way to tell if you moving forward… The human brain plays funny tricks on us and without a good way to track our progress we often succumb to false impressions our brains create.

Let me give you an example of a measurable goal that has a deadline associated with it: “By November 15, I will lose 20lbs.” An important principle with setting goals is to make them compelling so that they stir up your sense of desire to accomplish them. At the same time, you also want to be realistic about what is possible. If you see your goal as impossible to achieve it becomes very hard to generate the energy and enthusiasm needed to move forward to take action.

2. Break your goals into small steps, so that they are easier to achieve and don’t seem as overwhelming. Want to know the fancy term that social scientist came up with for this technique? “Partializing the problem”

3. Now prioritize your goals into what you need to accomplish each day. Inside our minds, we all have a a constant stream of dialogue going on. Most of the time we are unaware of it, but thousands of times a day your brain gives you messages… So now it’s time to put this mechanism to good use and to let your brain know that your goal is more important than most of the random “inner chatter” that happens all day long. You know, more important than things like… “I like bacon” or “That person is annoying”.

Remind yourself throughout the day of your goal and your priority as well as many reasons you have behind wanting to accomplish it…

4. With that being said the next thing to do is to make a list of things that you associate as being negative that are related to your goal or dream. Most likely you already have negative things associated with your dream or goal. You may not have even realized it before, but these associations have been holding you back from achieving your dreams. So make a list of all the negative items that come to mind when you think about achieving your dream or goal. Then look at the are list and start to identify ways to deal with these challenges. Every time a new negative association pops into your mind, jot it down and create a method to deal with if needed. Keep doing this exercise over time as things will change and new challenges and negative associations will arise.

5. Now make a list of all the things that you view as positive about reaching your goal or dream. As you consider the positive imagine how would feel achieving your dream. Build up that feeling. Imagine people cheering and clapping – whatever helps you to intensify the feeling. Think about how accomplishing your goal would change your life… What would be different about your view of the world or your self-image? Now consider your next objective. What would it be? Make this objective as desirable and attractive as possible. Create a vision of your life after you’ve accomplished your goal. What does it look like, feel like etc… As you do this exercise, consider how repeating this process will keep your motivation levels high.

6. Now take a look at what additional steps you need to take in order to make you dream a reality. Do you need a license or permit? Are you starting a business? Do you need special resources? Do you need additional knowledge” How about skills that you might need to acquire? Create a list of the resources, knowledge, and skills you may need to acquire and begin your planning process to work through getting them.

Keep in mind the concept of outsourcing. Are there other people who can help you. Maybe you don’t need all the knowledge and skill you’ve listed. List the people you know who can be helpful to you and consider their expertise or resources that they might lend… A wise friend once said to me, “No man is an island” and that is very true when accomplishing your dream. Sometimes you need guidance and mentoring along the way. You may be afraid to ask for help, but keep in mind that most people actually like to help. Continue to break down any obstacles you may need to overcome into smaller manageable steps that you can overcome.

7.  Take action every day & Track your progress. On a regular schedule review and evaluate where you are with your goal and re-evaluate what you need to do in order to move forward. Keep in mind that circumstances change and you may need to modify your plan.

Repeat every step as needed and best of luck to you on your journey to accomplish your dreams. When you achieve your dream don’t forget to celebrate!
