I believe in dreams.
I also believe in hard work.
I believe in doing the "good work of self" so that we are worthy of receiving the dream we desire.
I believe that when we align ourselves with the Universe's deepest desire for us in a co-creative way, pretty much anything is possible—in the human realm, that is.
Co-creativity, by the way, means you do your part and the Universe does its part.
My newest book, My Deepest Self, is one of those long-awaited dreams. For many years, I knew I would write a book like this. I just didn't know how or when, so patience was required.
I believe in " divine timing" and honoring that timing, even if we are chafing at the bit to HAVE IT NOW—or in our own way.
Somehow, mysteriously, the Universe knows when we are ready and, at just the right moment, the door to new terrain is opened. Within the blink of an eye, it seems we are there ... the place we had dreamed of.
Without this blog post sounding too self-promotional, I simply want to say to you, don't give up on your dreams. My last book was published in 2008. I had to wait seven years for the next one to come forth. I stopped and started. Many times. I failed—often. I even lost faith in myself for a period of time when a fairly famous literary agent who chose to represent me, suddenly dumped me saying, "Nobody wants to hear what you have to say."
(As you can imagine, that was a big blow to overcome.)
I encourage you to trust divine timing. Know that something you may want isn't here because everything you need to make it a reality may not yet be in place.
Trust your soul-self. Wait. Be patient. Continue to do your part. Root your intention. Work on your inner being. Evolve yourself so that your are fully awake and aware and can read sacred signals. Stay positive and hopeful.
You will know when the time is right for your dream to be made manifest because nothing will be able to stop you. The Universe will be behind your every effort because you are now full of love and goodness and generosity. And patience! (The Universe likes patient people ;-)
Dreams are realized when we have fully surrendered to the will of the One. When you are able to do this the world cracks wide open.
You can trust me on this one. ;-)
is a touchpoint. a resting place, a "remembering" of who we really are and how we can best live—kindly and compassionately with ourselves and others.
