We don't always get what we think we want but we always (without fail) get the precise support that our soul needs. Our dream can often be a lure, the intention of which is to lead us to a state and a place higher than the dream itself. To align our will with divine will requires total trust especially when the diversions from what we desire and how we imagined things would be start to happen. We have to constantly surrender in order to flow towards our destiny without manifesting unnecessary fear and suffering. This is where the gold is, it's not in the goal. ~Caroline de Lisser
The numbers 2+0+1+7 add up to 10--and according to numerology, this is a number of leadership and mastery . Pesonally, I feel the call to step up and out of the trance of self-doubt and discouragement and into the current of change that is available to those of us who are really ready. No more waiting until the perfect time or holding out for better circumsances. Don't be lukewarm. The time is now. All of my practice, training and education has prepared me for what is emerging and today I recieved the invitation loud and clear: Will you do what is being asked of you? Of course, the invitation comes without specific details--just the first step of commitment; of willingness and saying "Yes."
This call to personal mastery means knowing and loving ourselves completely and honoring the dreams that were planted inside of us when we were born. Our dreams for our lives are vital to our health and well-being because they connect us to our purpose for being alive. The deep desires of our hearts offer a pathway to one of the most vital qualitites of our human expereince: hope. This gift of hope provides a necessary counterbalance to the rigors, routines and habits of our lives. Dreams give us a glimpse into what is possible for each of us. Unfortunatley we are taught from a young age to "stop daydreaming" and we are conditioned to give up our cherished dreams in favor of "reality." While we all must come to terms with what our version of reality presents to us, we need not forfeit our dreams. The dream itself provides the fuel for our destiny, which is our ultimate destination. For this reason, our dreams don't have to be exactly fulfilled to be useful for our lives. I love this idea that Caroline de Lisser presents: the dream could actually be leading us elsewhere--it may be serving as a vehicle, rather than the destination itself.
So much of the energy around the new year has to do with making our plans and hitting the ground running. There is a starting line buzz that I always feel in these first few weeks that tends to feel like people lacing up their new shoes, jogging around in circles to warm up-- anxious to be first to run at the sound of "go"; single focused on making it to the finish line in record time. But my rhythm always feels less hurried and more introspective this time of year and I believe that January should be dedicated to dreaming and establishing your own pace as you begin to bridge your heart's desire with your priorites for the new year.
Here are a few suggestions to help you renew and refresh your connection to your dreams:
Keep your dream close to you as you move forward into this new year. Remember that you don't have to fulfill your desinty or realize your dream in a single day, month or year. Set your own pace; it's not a race. Commit to your own call to mastery, do what needs to be done and trust that all is well.
All is well!
What My Clients Are Saying:
"I know that “life changing” is a bit over used but it best describes how I feel about what Jenny Clarke offers with "The Courage to Create" course. She uses the metaphor of the labyrinth. A twisted turning path with hidden chambers that takes you to the center and then back out again with new insights. I took the private version of this program. The weekly lessons took me to the core of who I am. Along the way looking into some long closed chambers where we cleared out a few ghosts and discovered some buried gems. At the end of the course I emerged forever changed with a new understanding and appreciation of who I am. You can not get lost in a labyrinth as long as you keep moving forward. The journey begins when you take the first step. I highly recommend that you take the first step and sign up for the Courage to Create!" ~L.H.
