Does your dream body look or feel different than the body you have now? Do you want to lose weight, gain muscle, heal a condition, or improve your body’s health, functioning or fitness? Have you been trying to reach your goals but haven’t fully accomplished them yet?

These four mind-body shifts can help!

1. Get clear on how you want to feel.
How do you think you will feel when you have the body of your dreams? Let’s say you want to lose weight. How will you feel when you reach that number on the scale? Will you feel more confident? Sexy? Feelings are the key to any manifestation. Include images that activate those feelings when you are visualizing your dream body.

2. Clarify the energy behind your actions.
Are you exercising to lose weight? Are you going to the gym because you hate your body? According to the law of attraction, the universe will give you more of the same. More needing to lose weight. More hatred of your body. However, you can exercise because you love your body. You can exercise because your health is a priority or because you appreciate that your heart is pumping and you want it to keep pumping! Are you trying to change yourself? Or are you being the person you want to be, in the body of your dreams? That shift can make the biggest difference.

3. Act as if you have the body you want.
Chances are, most, if not all of the changes you’re making to reach your goals, will still have to be maintained once you reach them. Once you lose weight, you will still have to exercise and make healthier food choices. Engage in those actions now. Every day. Even if it’s in a small way.

4. Remember, your body allows you to live your dreams.
It’s easy to focus on what your body looks like or what it can’t do. Each and every one of us was given a body, and it’s the only one we are getting! Any dream you have, you need your body to accomplish it – to experience it, see it, touch it and feel it. Love and appreciate your body. Thank it for supporting your dreams and the universe will support you, too!

Some tips to help you to combine the law of attraction and weight loss for your idea of the perfect body that you desire.
1) State what you want. Say it out loud to yourself or write it down and describe what you want in detail and state how it will make you feel to achieve this goal.

2) If you can find a picture of that body that you desire. Cut it out and display it in a place where you will see it daily. Or you can create a vision board with pictures of what you desire and feel good when you look at it.

The key is when you see this picture imagine it as your own body. You can cut out a picture of your face and place it on the picture of the person with your desired body if it will make it easier to visualize it as your own. (And try not to condemn the food that you eat, be thankful for the food as you are eating and visualize yourself getting slimmer with each bite).

3) Express gratitude daily for your perfect body, skin, nose or whatever you desire daily. Say thank you as if you already achieved what you desire.

4) Believe that what you want is already yours and stay focused on what you desire and not on what you currently see and what you want will come into your existence.

I have heard and witnessed several stories of people who have combine the use of the law of attraction and weight loss and they have transformed their bodies.

I have also heard of people using the law of attraction to increase their hairline, vision, height and even to slim down their noses without surgery.

I have a friend that always says “I can eat whatever I want and I never gain weight” and she eats more than anyone that I know and true to her words she has been slim all of her life. You get what you believe.

I have heard stories of so called “ugly ducklings” whose dreams were to become models growing into beautiful swan, just by believing in the fact that they are truly beautiful, their looks changed into their ideal vision of themselves and ending up pursuing modeling careers.

My best friend’s son learned from his doctor that he was only going to be 5ft 4inches tall. He was not happy with this news so he refused to believe it, so he focused on growing much taller than what the doctor stated. Now he stands at about 5ft 9in tall and still growing.

I have heard stories of people throwing out prescription glasses because they believed strongly that they had perfect eyesight only to regain their perfect eyesight in days.

So, as you can see you can you use the law of attraction and weight loss to attract the body of your dreams or anything else that you want and desire.

The key to deliberate creation is to ask, focus on what you want and believe that it is already yours and remember to remain thankful and what you want will be your new reality.

And always remember to choose the way that you way YOU want to look, not the way someone else want you to look.

Because, what I have noticed is that if you gain weight people will say you are too fat, if you lose weight then they will say you are too skinny.

So, what I have learned is that I have to choose the way that I want to look that pleases me because you will never be able to please anyone else and why should you. You should only want to please yourself. The only person that truly matter!



The analysis of dreams and their cause by psychoanalysts are defective. They maintain that
the cause of dream creation lies in the suppressed desires of the dreamer. Can they create dreams as
they like by suppressing desires? No, they cannot do that. They say that desires stimulate or help the
dream creation. But they do not know what supplies the material out of which they are made and
what turns the desires into actual expression, enabling the dreamer see his own suppressed desires
materialised and appearing to him as real.

The desires only supply the impulse. The mind creates the dream out of the materials
supplied by the experiences of the waking state. The dream creatures spring up from the bed of
Samskaras or impressions in the subconscious mind. Indigestion also causes dream. The Taijasa is
the dreamer. It is the waking personality that creates the dream personality. The dream personality
exists as the object of the waking personality and is real only as such.
The waking and dreaming states do not exist independently side by side as real units.
Why do we dream? Various answers have been given to this question. Dreams are nothing
but a reflection of our waking experience in a new form. The medical view is that dreams are due to
some organic disturbances somewhere in the body, but more particularly in the stomach.
Sometimes coming diseases appear in dreams.

According to Sigmund Freud all dreams without any exception are wish-fulfilment. The
physical stimulus alone is not responsible for the production of dreams. The dream mechanism is
very intricate. The wishes are of an immoral nature. They are revolting to the moral self, which
exercises a control on their appearance. Therefore, the wishes appear in disguised forms to evade
the moral censor. Very few dreams present the wishes as they really are. Dreams are the partial
gratification of the wishes. They relieve the mental tension and thus enable us to enjoy repose. They
are safety valves to strong impulsions. You will know your animal-self in the dream.

Here’s a poem by Christina Rossetti entitled “Monna Innominata”

I wish I could remember that first day,
First hour, first moment of your meeting me,
If bright or dim the season, it might be
Summer or Winter for aught I can say;
So unrecorded did it slip away,
So blind was I to see and to foresee,
So dull to mark the budding of my tree
That would not blossom for many a May
If only I could recollect it, such
A day of days! I let it come and go
As traceless as a thaw of bygone snow;
It seemed to mean so little, meant so much;
If only now I could recall that touch,
First touch of hand in hand – Did one but know!

The Philosophy of Dreams

Men of knowledge have declared the unreality of everything that is seen in the dream,
because all these objects of the dream are located within the body and exist in a confined space.
All these entities like mountains, elephants etc., are seen in the dream only inside the body.
Therefore, they cannot be real.
And on account of the shortness of the time, it is impossible for the dreamer to go out of the
body and perceive the objects of dream. And when the dreamer wakes up, he does not find himself
in the place even in the dream. It is not a fact that all that is seen in the dream can be situated in a
limited space. And a man sleeping in the east, very often feels himself as it were, experiencing
dreams in the north. As soon as a man falls asleep he begins to dream objects, as it were, at a place
hundreds of miles away from his body, which he can reach only after a month or so in the waking
state. His going to such a long distance and coming back to his body within half a day (one night) is
not a fact. Hence this is unreal that he goes out of the body. He dreams of some place but he wakes
up in another place where he slept the previous day.
Though a man goes to sleep at night he feels as if he is seeing objects in the daytime and
meeting many persons in the broad daylight. But this meeting is found to be false. Therefore the
dream is a falsity.
The Sruti declares the illustration of the state of dream, by saying, “there are no chariots“
etc. This assertion is based on reason.
Moreover the different objects perceived in the dream are unreal even though they are
perceived to exist. For the same reason the objects of the waking state are illusory. The nature of the
objects is not different in the waking and the dreaming states. The only difference is in the limitation
of space connected with the object. The fact of being seen is commonly illusory in both states.
Further, the waking and dreaming states are same since the objects perceived in both states
are same. That which is non-existent at the beginning and also non-existent in the end, is necessarily
non-existent in the middle. The objects we see are thus only illusions, though we regard them as
real, due to our ignorance of the Reality of the Atman.
The objects used as means to some and or purpose in the waking state are contradicted in the
dream state. A man in the waking state, eats and drinks and appeases his hunger and is free from
thirst. But when he goes to sleep, he finds himself in dream again afflicted with hunger and thirst as
if he has not taken food and drink for days together. And the contrary also happens and is found to
be true. A person who has taken full meal and drink in the dream finds himself afflicted with hunger
and thirst as soon as he wakes up from sleep. Hence we establish the illusoriness of the objects of
both the waking and the dreaming states.
The objects perceived in dream are all usually, met with in the waking state, and those
which are not met with in the waking state own their existence to the peculiar conditions or
circumstances in which his mind is working for the time being. Just as Indra, etc., who reside in
heaven have thousand eyes, etc., on account of their existence in heaven, so also there are the
abnormal peculiar features of the dreamer due to the peculiar conditions of the state of dream. All
these objects are but the imaginations of his own mind. It is just like the case of a person in the
waking state, who, while going to another country sees on the way objects belonging to the place.
Just as snake in the rope and mirage in the desert are unreal and are mere mental imaginations, so
are the objects of dream and waking experience.
In the dream state also those which are mere modifications of the mind cognised within are
illusory. For, those internal objects vanish the moment they are perceived. Objects perceived
outside are considered as real. Similarly in the waking state objects known as real and mental
imaginations should be considered as unreal. Objects, both external and internal, are mere creations
of the mind whether it is in the dream or in the waking state.

Guru Guru Japna
Aur Sab Svapna,
Guru Guru Japna
Jagat Deergha Svapna.
Jagat Deergha Svapna
The world is like a long dream.
Take shelter in Guru
Everything is unreal. (Guru Guru)
When you perceive the things in Dream
You take them all to be real,
When you wake up and perceive
They are all false and unreal. (Guru Guru)
The world of name and forms is like
The dream you have during the night,
You take them all as real things,
But they are only false and transient (Guru Guru)
The only one which really exists
Is that God with Brahmic Splendour
Wake up, wake up, wake up to Light,
Wake up, wake up, from Maya“s sleep,
And see the things in their proper light. (Guru Guru)


Svapna is the dreaming state in which man enjoys the five objects of senses and all the
senses are at rest and the mind alone works. Mind itself is the subject and the object. It creates all
dream-pictures. Jiva is called Taijasa in this state. There is Antah-Prajna (internal consciousness).
The scripture says, “When he falls asleep, there are no chariots in that state, no horses and roads, but
he himself creates chariots, horses and roads.“
The dreaming world is separate from the waking one. The man sleeping on a cot in Calcutta,
quite healthy at the time of going to bed, wanders in Delhi as a sickly man in the dream world and
vice versa. Deep sleep is separate from both the dreaming and the waking world. To the dreamer the
dream world and the dream objects are as much real as the objects and experiences of the waking
world. A dreaming man is not aware of the unreality of the dream world. He is not aware of the
existence of the waking world, apart from the dream. Consciousness changes. This change in
consciousness brings about either the waking or the dream experiences. The objects do not change in themselves. There is only change in the mind. The mind itself plays the role of the waking and the
The dreamer feels that the dreams are real so long as they last, however incoherent they may
be. He dreams sometimes that his head has been cut off and that he is flying in the air.
The dreamer believes in the reality of the dream as well as the different experiences in the
dream. Only when he wakes up from the dream, he knows or realises that what he has experienced
was mere dream, illusion and false. Similar is the case with the Jiva in the waking world. The
ignorant Jiva imagines that the phenomenal world of sense-pleasure is real. But when he is
awakened to the reality of things, when his angle of vision is changed, when the screen of Avidya is
removed, he realises that this waking world also is unreal like the dream world.
In dream a poor man becomes a mighty potentate. He enjoys various sorts of pleasures. He
marries a Maharani, lives in a magnificent palace and begets several children. He gives his eldest
daughter in marriage to the son of a Maha-Raja. He goes to the Continent along with this wife and
children. Then he returns and visits various places of pilgrimage. He dies of pneumonia at Benares.
Within five minutes, he gets the above experiences. What a great marvel!
As in dream, so in the waking, the objects seen are unsubstantial, though the two conditions
differ by the one being internal and subtle, and the other external, gross and long. The wise consider
the wakeful as well as the dreaming condition as one, in consequence of the similarity of the
objective experience in either case. As are dream and illusion a castle in the air, so say the wise, the
Vedanta declares this cosmos to be.
Dreams represent the contraries. A king who has plenty of food, dreams that he is begging
for his food in the streets. A chaste, pure aspirant dreams that he is suffering from venereal disease.
A chivalrous soldier dreams that he is running from the battlefield for fear of enemy. A weak sickly
man dreams that he is dead. He dreams also that his living father is dead and weeps in the night. He
also experiences that he is attending the cremation of his father. Sometimes a man who lives in the
city dreams that he is facing a tiger and a lion and shrieks loudly at night. He takes his pillow
thinking it to be his trunk and proceeds to the Railway Station. After walking a short distance he
takes it to be a dream and comes back to his house. Some people dream that they are sitting in the
toilet and actually micturate in their beds.
As soon as you wake up, the dream becomes unreal. The waking state does not exist in the
dream. Both dream and waking states are not present in deep sleep. Deep sleep is not present in
dream and waking states. Therefore all the three states are unreal. They are caused by the three
qualities: Sattva, Rajas and Tamas. Brahman or the Absolute is the silent witness of the three states.
It transcends the three qualities also. It is pure bliss and pure consciousness. It is Existence


Once a disciple approached his Guru, prostrated at His Lotus Feet and with folded hands put
the question:
Disciple: O My Revered Guru! Please tell me the way to cross this cycle of births and
Guru: My dear disciple! If you can understand who you are, then you can get over this cycle
of births and deaths.
Disciple: O Guru! I am not so foolish as not to understand me. There is no man on earth who
does not understand himself; but every one of them is having his rounds of birth and death.
Guru: No, No. You should understand the nature between the body and that person for
whom this body is intended. Then only any one is said to have understood himself.
Disciple: Who is the person to whom this body belongs?
Guru: This Deha (body) belongs to the Dehi (Atman). Try to understand the true nature of
the Atman.
Disciple: I do not see anybody besides this body.
Guru: When this body was asleep, who is the person who experienced your dreams? Again
in deep sleep who is he that enjoyed it? When you wake up, who is he that is conscious of the world,
your dreams and the soundness of the deep sleep?
Disciple: I am just beginning to have a little idea of the nature of Atman who is present in all
the three states.
From the above conversation between the Guru and the disciple, it is clear that the dream
and the deep sleep states are worthy of our study in order to understand the true nature of the Atman,
as we already pretend to have some knowledge at least of our waking consciousness.
Dream is but a disturbance of the deep sleep and the study of the former, as to its origin,
working, purpose and meaning will naturally lead us to the study of the deep sleep state also.
The best way to study a subject is to trace its history and development in the hands of
eminent authors and to focus our critical faculty on what we have studied from the~

  1. STUDY OF ir treaties and to rectify any omissions, when we shall have a complete and satisfactory survey of that subject.
    The dream reveals within itself those unconscious mental mechanisms evolved during the
    course of development for the purpose of controlling and shaping the primitive instinctual self
    towards that form of behaviour demanded by the contemporary civilization. A working knowledge
    of the dream as a typical functioning of the psyche“that is, a knowledge of the dream mechanisms
    and of the theory of the unconscious symbolism“is therefore indispensable for dream
    interpretation. This knowledge may be gained intellectually from the books written by authorities
    on that subject, but emotional conviction is the result only of personal analytic experience. Dream
    should be considered as an individual psychical product from the storehouse of specific experience,
    which indeed the dreamer may in consciousness neither remember nor know that he knows.
    In the analysis of a dream, one would say that the assimilation of knowledge of the
    unconscious mind through the ego is an essential part of the psychical process. The principle
    involved in valid explanation is the revelation of the unknown, implicit in the known in terms of the
    individual. This principle underlies all true dream interpretations.
    The value of a dream therefore lies not only in discovering the latest material by means of
    the manifest content, but the language used in the narration of dream and in the giving of
    associations will itself help towards elucidation.
    The subject of “dream“ and its analysis will be, therefore, a most interesting one in
    understanding the true nature of the individual. We, therefore, quote in the following pages,
    relevant extracts from the lectures of Sigmund Freud, the famous authority on that subject and will
    evolve it further, if necessary, by the help of the knowledge we get from the Indian Sages and Seers.
