Awakening The Giant Within Myself Despite More Than 3 Weeks Without Power

Awakening Giant Within Myself: My Positive Transformation

Today, I feel happy. We’re still living without power. Nothing has changed. We don’t have any more reasons for happiness than a few weeks ago. But something in my mind has changed profoundly.

I’m simply content. Negative thoughts are almost non-existent and if they try to raise their head, I simply banish them. It even seems like the sun is brighter, the sky is bluer, and the world smells different.

Thanks to living without power, I’ve had lots of time to read books and one of them was “Awaken The Giant Within” by Tony Robbins.

The Story Of The Most Inspiration Person I’ve Ever Met

The first time I heard of Tony was exactly one year ago when I met an inspiring woman who is a huge fan of Tony’s books and seminars. Her name is Joy and she has managed to create exactly the kind of life that she wanted. She had her own share of suffering, but she never gave up. She’s now about to give birth to her first baby, has a perfect husband who she loves with all her heart, and has built a successful business.

If I had to pick one person that inspires me the most, it would be her. When I met her for the first time, after just 30 minutes of conversation, she interrupted me with a question, “Why do you always say that you’re worried about something?”. I got annoyed for a few minutes, but then I realized that she was absolutely right. “I’m worried that…” was one of the most used phrases in my vocabulary.

That day I banished that phrase from my vocabulary for ever. I also looked at other phrases I was using and I also noticed that I said I hated things a lot when all I meant was that I disliked them or that they annoyed me a little. The vocabulary we use is so important, yet we pay so little attention to it. Joy opened my eyes to the fact that we are able to program our minds, our states, our thinking, and our destiny.

I’m Taking Back Control Of My Mind

At that time, I didn’t know that what she said was from Tony Robbins’ teaching. When I started reading his books, I realized why she said and did many things the way she did. “Awaken the Giant Within” is an incredible book that managed to transform my thinking so much. I shouldn’t even say that the book did it because all it did was show me the tools how to do it myself by taking control of my mind. You must read it if you’re looking for ways to be more productive, to achieve more, to feel more alive, or simply to be happier.

This little stint without electricity reminded me once again how important it is to read self-development books. It’s definitely one of the lessons I will carry over to the regular life once it resumes. I might not have time to eat, but I’ll always make sure I have time for an inspiring book.

The perfect vision of the future disguised as a dream

Last night, I had a dream. When I woke up, I felt incredibly serene and confident. Not many dreams have been able to touch me as much as this one did. I dreamt that Luca and I had a baby. She was beautiful, healthy, and super hungry. It might seem like an ordinary dream for you, but it was the first time I’d ever dreamt of having a baby and felt good about it. Usually, dreams about babies turn into nightmares for me because subconsciously I never feel ready and I’m always terrified by all the changes. This dream symbolises an important switch in my brain. I’m not afraid anymore, and I believe it’s because of all the work I’ve done on my mind since reading the book.

There was another important detail in the dream. Luca went away one afternoon without telling me anything, and when he came back, I found out that he was trying to create an amazing surprise for me. He was looking for a piece of land to build our first home for us. Another dream come true.

Why was this dream so different from all the others?

What set this dream apart from all the others for me was two feelings I felt during it. I felt secure and peaceful because we were financially stable and self-sufficient. I also felt like my life finally had a real purpose because I finally had someone to look after: a baby! I felt truly useful.

This dream made me understand a lot about myself. I’m grateful for it. It was a like a little glimpse of our future. Perhaps not so close, it might be in the distance, but it IS our future. One thing is imagining things or writing your life’s design on paper, and another thing is seeing it in a dream, in colours. It was such a powerful vision. Wow! My subconscious sent me a clear signal that it is finally on board and it’s understood what I’m searching for. My subconscious and mind are now working in synergy. Finally.

Now all I need is a bit of patience, time, passion, and hard work. I’ll get there!

How about you? Have you ever had inspiring super-realistic dreams like this? Have you read “Awaken The Giant Within”? Have you got any other similar books to recommend?

By the way, just a little update regarding our electricity situation: a TV crew is coming this evening. Let’s see if putting our issue out there is going to start moving things faster. Maybe we can still have Christmas with light!

Lots of love,

Vita xx

  1. I too was worried, uneasy, what-have-you about having a baby myself. And like you, one day I said, ‘you know, there aren’t many things in life I can control, but having a baby? That I *can* control!” What a wonderful dream…:) Here’s to your dream baby!
