How Shamans Dream the World into Being
Whether you realize it or not, we are all dreaming the world into being. What we're engaging in is not the sleeping dream we're familiar with but the waking dream we craft with our eyes open. When we're unaware that we all share the power to cocreate reality with the help of the universe itself, that power slips away from us and our dreams turn into nightmares. We begin to feel we're the victims of an unknown and frightening creation that we're unable to influence or change. Events seem to control us and trap us. The only way to end this dreadful reality is to awaken to the fact that it is a dream too and then recognize our ability to write a better story—one that the universe will work with us to manifest. The nature of the cosmos is such that whatever dream you have about yourself and the world will become reality.
As soon as you awaken to your power to dream, you begin to flex the muscles of your courage. Then you can dream bravely, letting go of your limiting beliefs and pushing past your fears. You can begin to create truly original dreams that germinate in your soul and bear fruit in your life. Courageous dreaming allows you to create from the source, the quantum soup of the universe where everything exists in a latent or potential state. Physicists understand that in the quantum world nothing is "real" until it is observed. But quantum events do not occur in the laboratory only. They also happen inside our brains, on this page, and everywhere around us. When you access any part of a dream, a great matrix of energy, you can change that reality and alter that entire dream.
Modern physics is describing what the ancient wisdom keepers of the Americas have long known. These shamans, known as the Earthkeepers, say that we are dreaming the world into being through the very act of witnessing it. Scientists believe that we are only able to do this in the very small, subatomic world. Shamans understand that we also dream the larger world that we experience with our senses. Like the Aborigines, the Earthkeepers live in a world where the dreamtime has not been pushed into the domain of sleep like it has for us. They know that all of creation arises from this dreamtime and returns to it.
