There is a special alchemy, a transformative magic that occurs in our lives, when we finally give ourselves permission to follow our dreams. Like a flood of light that cascades around us on the etheric realm, the impetus for action and change towards following our deepest dreams, washes away karmic debris that we have carried from previous lives and lower vibrations of fear accrued in our present one.
The deepest dreams of the heart, when truly examined are rarely based on fame on fortune(though those can be a result of realizing ones dream). Rather, the deepest dreams are often the manifestation of ones greatest gifts, made accessible, powerful, and shining outwards into the physical world. For example, when I committed to sharing my spiritual perceptions and understanding with the world at large, my life and reality altered in alchemical, transformative ways. In claiming my personal power to ‘see’ beyond this physical reality, to be clairvoyant and assist people in their own levels of self awareness, I transformed the way I ‘saw’ the world. When I was open about perceiving other levels of reality, I offered acceptance to others for perceiving in their own fashion, the greater reality of the cosmos. In this sharing, I gifted myself with a deeper level of self love and acceptance than ever before in this present life.
By offering ‘readings’ for others, I could witness the transformative power of prayer, release, and abundance on the spiritual level of existence, and celebrate in aiding in the facilitation of others self healing journey. My deepest dream from my heart, was to use the written word to continue to share messages of hope, divine love, and the etheric reality. By allowing myself to initially speak about what I was ‘seeing’, I become self empowered to write about what I perceived. The writing became a blog, and a Facebook page, those two opened the doorways of my consciousness to manifest a book, ‘Soul Evolution’. Along the way I faced several internal battles, between fear and divine consciousness. The fear was layered from other lifetimes, ones in which I had died for sharing spiritual messages or healing. In this current life I carried fears surrounding finances, or lack their of, and insecurities surrounding spreading my messages to a wide enough audience that anyone would read my book. Each level of fear, was a test of my commitment to my dreams for sharing and inspiring messages of Compassion. Some required days of prayer, others several walks in the woods, and a few sleepless nights of mantra, to overcome. Yet at each stage of birthing, I was able to connect with that strength of will that accompanies following the light of my hearts dream and desire.
Each person, who commits to a dream, whether it be as a builder, a communicator, an artist, a self realized individual, a musician, a teacher, or a myriad array of other manifest dreamers, will face challenging levels of fear. This is where truly connecting and honoring the deepest dream becomes alchemy. It is not only the fears of the self that must be overcome on a journey towards dream realization, but also the fears that one has ingested from culture and society at large. Some fears our society in the west encourages, surround the ‘value’ of ones projects and dreams on the financial level. There is an undercurrent of belief that pervades many who wish to create, and it suggests that unless a large quantity of money flows from the project, creation, passion, or lifestyle, then the value is low. This thought pattern denies both the creators, and the world at large from inspiration, hope and cosmic consciousness raising.
The value of following our dreams, investing time and money towards what we truly, deeply, passionately believe in, radiates outwards like a tidal wave, and flows across and over every person we interact with on a grand scale. To follow our dreams empowers others to follow theirs. It is important to consider that one persons dream could lead to a revolutionary pattern of thought that encouraged such divine love and compassion on a grand scale, that the face of the planet began to shift in manner that none could have foreseen a decade before. What if you, the person reading this post, are that person with such a power? What if your small project long dreamed of ignited and empowered a nation? Would you deny the future generations of this world, such a gift, because the fear of not generating enough income from your dream stopped you?
Along my journey I cashed in my savings, published my book, and leapt with arms outstretched towards sharing my own light to the best of my present capacity. The leap has thus far, been absolutely worth it. I value myself, and am better able to value the dreams of others. I have loving relationships in all my interactions, because I feel empowered enough to see others with the Love I afford myself. My dreams continues to be realized each time someone tells me the words I have written or spoken were helpful to them in some way. I would be delighted to sell a million books and perhaps this will or will not ever happen, but truly, the realization of my dream was when I sent out the first hundred for free and received thanks from people who were inspired and empowered through reading ‘Soul Evolution.’ My value to myself and my family unit has grown exponentially, as we each work together to support and encourage another’s dreams. Money is a reality of the world, yet it is not how we should set value on one another’s dreams.
I would like to share two prayers I have long utilized on this journey of birthing and sending outwards my own dreams into the world and the collective consciousness. The first is for identifying ones deepest dreams:
“Dear God/dess or creation, please send me the light of Durga, Quan Yin, Archangel Haniel to fill my being with the courage, compassion, self love and acceptance necessary to allow my greatest gifts and dreams to surface in my consciousness. I am ready to release all fears surrounding unworthiness, lack, and insecurity. I am ready to walk, talk, and act in accordance with my own divine Light, and to offer the world, in the best ways I am able to at this time, all of the Love I carry into this world. Thank you, Amen, OM, and Aho.”
The second is for during each small or large step along the way to realizing these dreams:
“Dear God/dess of creation, and the source, please help me to connect daily with the ways in which my individual light, contributes to the betterment of this world and cosmos at large. Please send me messages, helpers, guides, and Angels to assist me on this path, especially on days where I feel afraid or unsure of my next step forward. I ask that the Archangels working alongside me in this life, clear my fearful thoughts, and raise my personal vibration to coincide with Divine Love. I am a willing participant and advocate of this love, and ask that each day I am better able to perceive ways in which I can manifest my gifts out into the physical reality. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”
As our Souls travel through time and space, it is the mark of energy, and resonance that we leave behind that will define the next stage of our personal Light evolution. What will be each of our pathways, rivers, and intersections of the Divine is entirely up to the choices we make surrounding following our dreams.
I wish each person reading this post, the courage, the strength of will, and the alchemy of spirit they need for their own empowered being to shine, share and evolve. Take chances, be brave, be bold, and define success on the manner in which we can all help one another.
