Be the person 

you always dreamed

of being



By Robert Christiansen Ashford


I am here to tell you a truth as I understand it.


It’s not going to make you feel warm and fluffy, not at first, but it will empower you if you read to the end.

Our world is filled with fear, hateful rhetoric, environmental disasters and atrocities.

These are inflicted on humanity, by humanity throughout the world.

We are experiencing the highest outpouring of negative energy ever. A tsunami level event targeted at ourselves.


How does it make you feel when you sit down and watch the news in the evening?

A tinge of anger, frustration, a belief that it’s not your fault, and there’s nothing you could do about it if it was

Who is creating the troubles we find our little world in?

I bet you can list off two or three world leaders you feel are responsible for most of this stuff. But the truth is, we are responsible. Every one of us.

Our thinking is the reason we are surrounded by fear and hate. How we view ourselves is why.

We, the people, are spewing forth a flood of poison on the world, and waiting for someone else to clean it up. 

But we cannot buy or negotiate our way out of it, and we cannot vote our way out of it.

In fact, we cannot change the world out-there. 

Only by changing how we see the world can we change it. If we see it as a place of war, fear and hate, that is what we create.

How one person thinks, feels, acts, day to day, affects everything around them.

Haven’t you been on a train, or a plane, or in a bar where one person’s negative influence saturates the atmosphere. It’s toxic.

Now think how seven billion people thinking negative thoughts and experiencing negative feelings every day, almost every minute of every day, are going to affect the world?

And what about the effects of positivity?

Think how absorbing it is being around someone overflowing with positiveness. You can’t help but smile and feel energized.   

So, where do these feelings come from?

Feelings come from within. It is a decision to be either negative or positive.

No matter what is going on out there, the change must be made within before it manifests in the world around us.

This is the greatest opportunity in history.  

Our fears are visible in our conscious awareness, all we need do is let them go.

Anything negative that shows up is like a guardian angel urging you to give it up.

We cannot get rid of them if we don’t know they’re there, right? How can you deal with a pain if it’s hidden? How can you get rid of it if you don’t know it exists?

We have the opportunity to better ourselves and our planet if we address our pains, our negativity, our fears.

If each person reading this addressed their own fears for just a short time each day, do you believe it would affect our world?

It would affect everything. Think of the potential. Think of what could happen?

We are capable of the extraordinary if we make an effort from the heart.

We are capable of changing our world.

So, how can we do it?

How do we address our fears? 

First, we must accept responsibility for how it is now.

Everyone reading this has at some time experienced and expressed fear, hurled negativity, anger, hurt or frustration at someone or some thing.

By taking responsibility, we empower ourselves to change it. 

If it’s always someone else’s fault, we disempower ourselves. It’s then no longer in our power to make a difference.

Second, be clear about what you want.

Most of us focus on what we don’t want and don’t even know we’re doing it.

Third, become the person you have always dreamed of being.

Imagine yourself as that person, firsthand. Feel the congratulations, feel the handshakes through your own eyes. Feel the admiration of your peers, and inspire them to be the person they want to be without wanting anything in return.

Try to do this every night before you fall asleep. Fall asleep as the person you dream of being.

When you find that person and feel the reality of them, you will find inspiration.

Fourth, take action. Decide to do this, not tomorrow, but now, today.

Write these simple steps down and keep doing them.  


There are many options available to make a difference of course.

Meditation to clear the mind, yoga, martial arts, light and sound technologies, consciousness technologies such as brain wave entrainment, Heartmath Institute, books by Neville Goddard, Dr Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden, Dr Joe Dispenza, Tony Robbins, can all lift us up.

We got ourselves in to this. We created this level of fear. We can get ourselves out.

But it only works if we make an effort and do it.



Do what feels right to you. Don’t listen to the naysayers. Realize that from every negative thought, event or belief, there is an opportunity to become a seed of hope and optimism. Don’t give in to fear.
