• What is most important?
• What brings me joy?
• Am I happy?
• What can I be grateful for in this moment?
• Am I making a difference?
• How can I make the world a better place?
• Am I dreaming big dreams for myself and the planet?
• Am I using my talents and abilities?
• What is my purpose?
• Am I connecting with Source?
• How can I have deeper communion with Spirit?
These are the kinds of questions which drive my life. Before I take a job or move to a new location or make any big decisions, I have to ask myself questions such as these. What else is important? Joyfully appreciating all the beauty which surrounds me? Absolutely! Spending time with the people I love? Oh yes! Allowing more flow, grace, and magic in my life? Most definitely! Listening to that still quiet voice? Oh yes. Following my dreams? As Meg Ryan so famously modeled in that scene from When Harry Met Sally, yes, yes, YES!
I believe the whole reason we’ve been given a body is so that we can propel our soul to greater evolution. And how do we do that? By loving profoundly, by learning our life’s lessons, and by living our joy.
We are here to make manifest the dreams of our soul. The dreaming happens on the spiritual plane, but the manifestation happens on the physical plane. We need both our spiritual and our physical selves in order to fully live our purpose. When we each learn to honor the voice of our soul, when we fully commit to our soul’s path, the whole world becomes a bit brighter and we all move a bit closer to fulfilling our potential – both as individuals and as a species. So let’s claim our dreams and then bring them into manifestation! It’s really not so hard once you learn to 1) pay attention to that still small voice, 2) let go of the doubts and fears, and 3) believe!
I came into this world with a diverse set of gifts. We all did. My task is to offer my gifts (writing, dreaming, teaching, creating…) for the betterment of the world and the evolution of my soul. Fortunately, the evolution of my soul is always part of the betterment of the world! Healing and growth at the microcosmic level always positively affect the macrocosm. Isn’t that great? When we grow and change and heal, we help the world. It’s just the way things work.
One of the ways I am currently stepping into my purpose is by offering the workshop below. And how else may I serve? May I support you in the manifestation of your heart’s desires? May I give a talk about what to do when you receive a cancer diagnosis? May I teach a vegan cooking class in your home? Speak at your church or synagogue or mosque? Help your nursing home staff learn to be more sensitive to the needs of elders in their care? Teach hospice volunteers and caregivers about end-of-life issues and what may happen “on the other side?” May I inspire you with my writing? Bring joy with my photographs? Officiate at a memorial service or help to create a ceremony for a special rite of passage?
My goal is always to help make the world a better place. In whatever way I joyfully can. I want to dream strong, to live with purpose, to be creative, and to love deeply and passionately.
Meanwhile, I wish you a life filled with an abundance of love, joy, and peace!
Dreaming Your Life, Living Your Dream Workshop
aka Creating the Life You Want!
February 21, 2016
“Your heart knows the way. Run in that direction.” ~Rumi
This year is a leap year. What great symbolism! Is it time for you to take a big leap? Is it time to make some changes and leap into the life you’ve been secretly hoping for? If you’ve been feeling a bit unhappy with your life, if you’ve put your dreams on the back burner, if you’ve found yourself thinking that the life you want is just not possible now, then you would benefit from this workshop!
We all deserve to have the life we want. I’m not talking about a hedonistic life filled with superficial pleasures. No, I’m talking about the kind of life your spirit yearns for, the life that makes your heart sing, the kind of life that makes you excited about waking up in the morning!
There are spiritual tools we can learn in order to manifest the life we’ve been dreaming of. Spiritual masters and indigenous elders know these secrets of manifestation. And fortunately this information is no longer hidden knowledge.
During this workshop we will create a sacred place where each one of us can get in touch with long-lost dreams of what we want our life to look and feel like. We will use various exercises and visualizations to rediscover these dreams. We will also explore what our purpose may be in this lifetime, because our deepest heart-dreams are almost always connected to our purpose. And then I will teach you about the tools you need in order to manifest these dreams into your waking reality. I will give you multiple examples of people who changed their life around and how they did it. (I’ll give you one hint right now: They believed it was possible! Belief is key! So how do we let go of our doubts and our fears and our … let’s face it, excuses? That is something else we will explore together.)
By the end of our afternoon together, I want each one of you to be able to say to yourself, “YES! I am creating my new life right now! The old is fading away. I am holding fast to my dreams and manifesting a new and better life for myself right now!”
