Everybody has a dream. It might be a big dream or a little dream. It might even be an escape from something painful. It could be a dream founded on a ‘what if’ thought.
We ask little children what they want to be when they grow up. Firefighter. Veterinarian. Teacher. Doctor. They have a dream. Most of them change the answer to that question many times before they choose a career but there’s always an answer, a dream.
As an adult, you might feel trapped in the reality of where you are now and a ‘dream’ seems like a luxury you can’t afford. Or you might have a dream but it is a small, easily achievable one that won’t challenge you to grow.
Remember when you were little and the sky really WAS the limit? I wanted to work on the NASA space program. That was my dream. I went to college, majored in Mathematics, worked for the Department of Defense for 14 years and THEN I went to work on NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope! I did it!
I met Senators and Congressional Representatives, famous folks like Carl Sagan and Tom Clancy, astronauts – a dream come true. There were astronomers from around the world working with me. I got to travel – to Paris, to Huntsville, Alabama. (OK, Huntsville wasn’t a part of my big dream!) And there I was in my dream.
I was only in my 40s and, yet, the dream was realized. What then?
It was time to create an even bigger dream.
I felt the call to become a Spiritual Healer. Not exactly what every Math major dreams of! But I followed through, studied different modalities, explored my gifts, and changed careers in midlife. I became a Spiritual Healer and Medium. And helping people is much more rewarding that meeting Senators and having a glamorous job about which I could preen and brag. MUCH more rewarding!
NOW I dream big. I reach for the sky in a different way. I travel to meet up with clients and share my gifts. I am living my Purpose and I am constantly being called to reach out to more people, to share in a bigger way. The Dream keeps expanding.
What is YOUR STORY? Have you realized the dreams you had as a child? Have you dared to dream big dreams as an adult? Where is your life now with respect to your dreams?
And how BIG are those dreams?
It becomes an easy thing to shrink our dreams as we experience life because it seems too challenging or, sometimes, even too dangerous, to follow that dream. But in the 21st Century we don’t have the luxury of dreaming small anymore.
This is a time for each individual to show up for their Soul Purpose and LIVE BIG! The Planet and the rest of us need for you to show up in your Purpose. Even if it is scary, Dream Big.
And when you have created your Bodacious Big Dream, step into it. Create the vision, feel the excitement, step into it and, in the words of Captain Picard, ‘Make it so!’
