Are your dreams, the vision you have for your life, fulfilling your purpose …
… too small
… big enough
… or .. too big?
During a recent half day intensive, I asked my client what his vision or dreams for his life is.
We had been talking about his Guardian Angels, their names and exactly what they help him.
Like so many women and men I am privileged to work with, he is accomplished and considering retiring from a second career within the next 12 months.
When he tried to answer the question, there was hesitation because Ego-chitter chatter started up. Mind you, my client is well-spoken and has been consciously opening-up Spiritually.
Still, answering the question — what is you’re your vision or dream for your life, living your purpose of being of service as a Spiritual Life Coach and Angel Card Reader — it was not so easy.
We — all of us — are taught that we must work, sacrifice our own dreams until we retire. Then, maybe, we’ll have time to pursue our heart’s desires … our dream of helping others and fulfilling our purpose.
So I ask you … what is your dream? NOT the automatic answer you’ve rehearsed so no one looks at your weird or asks you a million-and-one questions you may or may know the answers too.
I am asking you to go deeper, below the surface of what you say to family, friends and even people you don’t know when they ask you … and even the story you tell yourself when to make you feel better for not being where you feel you ought to be by now …
If your dream is too SMALL it won’t help pull you through the tough times, those Dark Nights of the Soul that literally attempt tp suck all the life-force right out of you!
Is your dream soooo BIG, that it’s oooo far out of reach in this lifetime that it stops you from ever getting started?
Here’s the thing …. Your vision, the dream you hold deep within your heart-center must be exactly the “right size” … not too small … not too big … but just right.
Before anyone says or thinks — Terrie Marie I just want to help people, it’s not about the money — or — I just want to follow my path, I want to be open to guidance …
Okay, I totally get that, I do. I used to be in that same spot mentally, emotionally energetically and Spiritually. AND, sometimes I find myself in that spot … temporarily.
If you aren’t clear about what you want to do, be or have … how are your Angel Guides going to guide you?
The image I’ve being given to help make this clearer than mud is this … imagine you are in a canoe on a slow peaceful river that’s two miles (kilometers) wide.
You have no paddles and there is no one else around as far as you can see. You are totally at the mercy of the wind, the speed of the current and the flow of the beautiful, slow moving river.
Yes, you will eventually get to where you want because you are affirming trust and faith, surrendering the outcome.
Being open to how your path unfolds is part of the journey. If you’re not willing to state with as much detail as possible, what you want, you’ll be easily distracted by shiny objects and creating resistance and delay every step of the way. Been there, done that … and sometimes catch myself starting to go there!
Sometimes my clients tell me they don’t want to be greedy, or make demands or worse … limit themselves. Ummm … when you plan a trip you know exactly where you want to go and how you’ll be getting there. There can be detours due to construction or you’ve decided to stop along the way at a scenic point, taking in the view.
Why are we soooo afraid to say or write out what we truly want?
Let’s face it … we’re afraid it won’t happen for us … we’re afraid of what people will say or think about us … or worse we will fall flat on our batukus bruising our pride. For some, it might be a fear of success and what that may mean, or that the people in our lives will want something from us just because we’ve made it.
Here’s a news flash … even astronauts make course corrections. So do aircraft carrier Captains and pilots.
I have experienced many failures and will probably experience others along the way. Some of these failures are very public, others not so much. Sometimes I want to quit … sometimes I do … for a little while knowing full well, I’m just going to re-hire me.
To summarize … your dream must be just the right size to stretch you beyond what you have, who you are and where you are right now.
Your dream needs to be vivid enough to help you see the light even during the darkest moments and the blackest Dark Night of the Soul.
Your dream is the fuel that pushes, encourages … and at times … propels you forward even when it appears as if everything is completely against you.
So again, I ask you …. What is your dream? Is it too small? Is it too big or just big enough to grow into?
