Dream Big (2010)

This speech was prepared for a short seminar I did recently at the Boston Media House college, in Johannesburg, South Africa. This is based on my original write up, but was further polished for public viewing.

The content of this write up is based on my own awareness of reality and the law of attraction. It is offered in the hope that it may be useful to you. Please use your discrimination and judgement in assessing this material. If something rings true to you, awesome. If something does not, please leave it behind.

Thank you for this. It's a good reminder for me. I got a lot out of reading it and the hidden message as well ;-).

Thank you, Warren! It's very inspiring.
I also familiar with that awareness of reality. And this is very interesting and strange topic.
TimBaldwin Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013
Brilliantly said!!! The best part is you didn't include the whole "god" thing. I close and return many self help and art books as soon as religion is brought up. But this, this is very well done.

Very nice Warren. You do simply fantastic work! Congratulations on your successes!

I happen to believe we create our world, too. Never had heard of Abraham Hicks, though, or the Laws of Attraction. I must give it a read.

I've heard about the law of attraction, but I believed it's just a marketable lie, total bull to sell books on it. Now that I see someone so skilled who believes in it, I might give it a try. Thanks!

I've just stumbled upon this.

really inspiring.

I've been pretty 'off the road' for some time but I've always had this perception of things happening just the way you explain it. I sure need to focus more on this kind of thoughts. Above all, inspiring speech.

Perhaps your most beautiful work is not an illustration but this. I saw it elsewhere and I admit that you helped me with some focus issues about my life. Do you mind if I translate this to Spanish (giving you all the credit and linking it here, of course) Thank you, man...for sharing this. I Totally got it.
WarrenLouw Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Its a real pleasure =) Im glad it could help you. Your welcome to translate it to Spanish. Just let me know when its up.

dunemoonbeam3 Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2011
hii its me "utopian art guy" Im getting better, at what im making, I think believing in yourself plays a huge role , but also knowing how to get there is also hard. An aim like "DRAW PEOPLE TO LOOK PHOTO REALISTIC" is not an easy goal, but somehow im getting there
RyanOdagawa Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2011
Warren, this is great! I just happened by this right now, while looking thru your stuff. The LOA concept has worked for me since I saw the Secret around 06. But this reminds me I need to constantly update my "dreaming" and keep aiming higher. Looking at all of the great art here helps inspire!

I just wanted to share something I read today that was profound to me, which gave me a broader view of the "Power of Now". It's from a book called " The Madness of George Bush". I highly recommend it...(it's more about the madness of ourselves and the implications that we voted for him)

Anyway, the author explains that "by the way we observe in this present moment, we actually reach back in time an create the past." And that "when we become convinced that the past exists in a solid way, we solidify it in our imagination as being that particular way, which will thereby create compelling evidence proving the rightness of our point of view (that the past really is that way). When we imagine that the past is a particular way, for example, this conviction affects our present moment experience AS IF the past really was that way, which just makes the past seem even more AS IF it really was that way, ad infinitum. This is to fall into a self-created and infinitely self-confirming feedback loop that is synchronistic and atemporal in its operation and thereby has the nature of a self-fulfilling prophecy."

The implication to me is that what we view as our past problems and issues don't have to define us, and that we can shape our future. Apologies for the novel! ;)

"THE SECRET!" How you approach life and your ideas in this pice and many others is right on point.
The message is clear this is what I needed to here.

Thank you.

This was a pleasant read, not mention you wrote this very nicely.
mike2501 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
that is so great..
can i ask for a copy of the background template you used on this one..
or can you tell me how to make one.. thank you very much.
WarrenLouw Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks! Um, well you can just paint one. check out the deviation "My way" for my brush settings and you can create your own. It can be a lot of fun.
Darkklade Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2010
Oh crap I'm a negative person with negative thoughts, I guess I'm screwed then. Oh well good luck with everything you do though, this was a greatly written peace.

JessahKat Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2010
I just read this today. And I really needed it. I feel inspired and compelled to move forward at a point where it's just as easy for me to do the opposite. I just wanted to say, I really appreciate this. Thank you.
Zhifay Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2010
I'm using the law of attraction for a while now, and i did incredible things!
But I have a question about it, and I hope you can answer that, because you talk abut it like an expert.
So here it is: Can I get unusual powers with the use of this law? (etc. telepathy)??
Because in the Jerry Hicks book Abraham says that you can have anything that you believe in.
If someone would tell me that i can have these powers, i could believe in them, and i would try to develop them in myself. I mean, if you can get anything, for me it looks like you can have these powers too.
What's your opinion about it?
WarrenLouw Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
If you believe, anything and everything is possible. Believing is the key, because that helps bring you into alignment with it without any resistance. Practicing that kind of absolute belief can be tricky because of the world that we have been raised in, but its all possible. At the end of the day its all about vibration. Achieving the "impossible" takes a high vibration of belief where there is no doubt (low vibration). When there is absolutely no contradiction in your vibration about it, it will be.
Zhifay Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2010
I think i can do that. Maybe in summer i will try, when i will have time :)

is it at all possible to have the background speech brought to the for for us to read?
NFG24 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2010
throw the contrast on your monitor up really high and look at your monitor from below [if it can tilt, or try sitting on the floor].

i wanted to mention this as well. the first few lines of this "hidden text" refer to things or energies "coming to earth." but they're said in a third person perspective, like it's not warren talking.

is there something else you'd like us to know, warren? not gonna lie, stuff like that is kinda creepy.
tangnamoo Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2010  Professional Filmographer
damn! This is inspiring! Thank you for sharing this.
HappyHyperHoneydukes Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
This made me feel all warm and happy inside!
Sebi3000 Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2010
I love your way to express all of this :)

I often read about the law of attraction, but the hardest step for me is to think positive.
I'm not over that yet... :(

If I wish for something 'bigger' ( I'm not talking about material things), I can't really believe in it and so it doesn't happen..

Have a nice day :)
WarrenLouw Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Dont worry, you'll get there one way or another. Its a process.

Its very difficult, impossible most of the time to jump from a place of disempowerment to one of positive empowerment. The leap is too great to make. You need to work your way there through all the stages. You'll know where you are by the way you feel. You'll notice that when you move from a place of hopelessness to one of anger, you feel like you are regaining some of your power, and it feels better, which means progress is being made. The work is to keep moving in the direction of the better and better feeling emotions. The emotional scale goes something a lil like this - from hopelessness or depression (where you have no power) into anger (where you start to regain your power), to less anger, then into frustration, less frustration, and then once you reach hope, making your way to positivity and joy becomes much easier. You just have to work on closing that gap to get there =)
Sebi3000 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2010
Thank you very much for your comment :)

I'll try hard on closing that gap, thanks for your inspiration :)
