Legend of the Dreambox
The Legend of the Dreambox (often attributed to Lemuria) suggests writing down your fondest dream, greatest desire, strongest wish on a small piece of paper, putting that paper in a Dreambox and placing it beside your bed. Every evening as you retire and every morning as you rise, hold your Dreambox and think of your dream, believing with all your heart that it is so. Legend has it, if done faithfully...your dream will come true.
At first I thought it was pretty stupid. there is no magic to putting paper in a little wooden box and holding it, but I quickly realized that isn't the point. The point is to realize what you want the most and to make a point to think about it. Think about it often and your dreams can work their way into your life.
I told you I didn't buy the dreambox. But that isn't to say I won't make my own when I get home.
