Follow Your Dream

Anyone who has read my articles knows I am about transforming life, manifesting, and dreams realized. I write about these things because I have witnessed firsthand that we can be, do, and have our desires. I also understand that words do not teach, experience teaches. Words do guide, inspire, and help lead to inspirations so others can experience the wonders we want in life.

What is your dream? I am not talking about becoming super wealthy by following another’s system because it worked for them. I am talking about that inkling you have had forever. The one that is so deep but has always been there. The one thing that is uniquely your own.

Those types of dreams are also the ones that can seem the scariest. They feel too big for an ordinary life. You may think, “Who would ever listen to me?” or “I am not special enough.” Or I am not (fill in the blank) enough.”

Don’t you think that those people we admire on the world’s stage, thought the same along their way? Most people start from simple beginnings. My question is, if not you, then who?”

If not you, then who?

We are all given unique desires and dreams, just as we are all given unique talents and abilities. We need to stop holding ourselves back and talking ourselves out of it, by doing that, we are cheating ourselves, our families, and humanity.

Choosing to follow a huge dream can be scary. Courage is facing what scares us. YOU CAN BE COURAGEOUS!

Following a big dream seems so hard. I thought so also. We live in an amazing and generous universe. Many amazing things have manifested in my life. Really, everything I have wanted. Those things I want now are becoming. The key is getting myself out of the way.

When I strive and work at things, they never seem to work out as I try to figure out the “HOW,” I tend to fall flat. Over and over again. Who Can Relate? It is not until I step aside from the how and focus on the why.

The why makes things happen, not the how. I leave how for God. The more “I let go and let God,” the clearer things become, and the more the path unfolds.

Here are a few simple steps.

  1. Stop making things so hard by obsessing.
  2. Appreciate where you are. Find joy and satisfaction right now and right where you are.
  3. You must believe it before you can see it. This is faith defined as well as a staple for manifesting.
  4. Be ready to be amazed.
  5. Get out of the way.

My life is going through a new transition. I saw it begin a year ago. I knew June 2020 would be an amazing new beginning. I had no idea what it would be, just the beginning of following the big scary dream that I have held close to my heart for years. The one I felt I was not worthy of holding. I even tried to start a couple of ideas on my own. I Spent thousands and failed spectacularly. What I tried to create on my own was too small, too shallow, and an imitation of other’s dreams.

I decided to step back and have faith in the larger dream. I am learning to let God have the reigns. What is happening leaves me pinching myself to be sure I am not dreaming that I am awake.

I am getting the opportunity to be mentored by a man who is admired by millions. He has changed lives around the world. I am not even sure how he became interested in me, how we exactly crossed paths. All I know is I have a dream, and I put it out there to the universe that I am ready to be courageous and live a larger life. I am trusting God or the universe to work out the details.

Dreams can come true much bigger that we can do for ourselves. Following our dream takes faith, following inspiration, and getting out of our way. Remember, it is not about how – That leads to struggle. Following dreams is about why.

How do you get there? I have those days where I start to worry. How can I afford it? How can I say the right thing? What can I do? Crickets chirping. I hear nothing, have no inspired thoughts.

Then I let go. The days of my most liberating meditations and prayers, the days I know I do not need to worry about how it will happen. Those are the days when the most exciting developments happen. The details are worked out for me in the background. The how is beyond my comprehension, so I stop worrying about it.

Those are the most amazing and productive days.

Remember, dreams can come true. Follow Your Heart!
