This 10 minute closed-eye meditation is to be either an extension of the I Have Dreams Dammit! Podcast, "What Inspires You?" episode 12, or as a stand-alone meditation.
I Have Dreams Dammit! is a podcast where I share the lessons I've learned in the battlefields of the creative journey. If you are pursuing a dream - or living your dream - and you have come up against some massive obstacles - both in the world and inside of yourself - good, that's the purpose! I truly believe that if you have something screaming inside of you, something that you must do, be, or create, then that is something you must pursue. Like in the book, The Alchemist, it is your Personal Legend.
“To realize one's Personal Legend is a person's only real obligation.” - The Alchemist
"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all."
- Helen Keller
"Ships are safe in the harbor but that's not what ships were built for" - unknown
Profound and tragic personal loss almost took me out of the game of life, but I survived. Part of the reason I survived (I believe) is so that I can share with you the deeper lessons that I have learned (and what I continue to learn) on the path towards manifesting my dreams. I am bringing my Elixir to you, my fellow dreamer. I will also be interviewing my professional artist & creative entrepreneur friends to gain a deeper insight into what it took for them to act on that inner creative calling.
Whatever happens, #keepgoing.
You probably got totally reconnected to your dream during the holiday break. If you had time off of work, you were finally able to think your own thoughts and reconnect with what you REALLY want to do with your life. As you head back to work, don't forget your WHY. LISTEN NOW
We live in an exciting time! You can promote your dream to the WORLD for FREE! What?? YES! In this episode, I run through all of the basics of selling & promoting your dream online. DON'T LET FEAR STOP YOU FROM GETTING YOUR DREAM OUT THERE!! Your tribe is waiting for you! LISTEN NOW
If you follow THAT feeling, that feeling that has been inside of you your entire life, if you follow it... you never know where it'll take you! I got my dream job at Paramount Pictures, I created a video that that was featured on the home page of Yahoo!, I was on the set of La La Land with Dapo when he worked with John Legend. My feeling leads me into all these cool experiences. Where will YOUR feeling lead you? LISTEN NOW
You know how I always say to follow the breadcrumbs? Well, my guest today is the perfect example of how this works and leads you to your purpose. Kate Neligan is an Equine-Partnered Life Coach, Author & Speaker.
I usually try NOT to talk about my spirituality as to not alienate anyone, however, dreams & spirituality go hand-in-hand for me. So here is my take on the subject. LISTEN NOW.
The reality of living your dream will be very different than the dream that was in your mind. But that's not a bad thing. The reality of the dream can be BETTER than the dreamed dream! Instead of getting discouraged when reality kicks your butt, go back to the "dream blueprint" and see what you can tweak so that your dream is more in alignment with what makes you come alive as it lives outside of your head. LISTEN NOW
If you do not change, you will not achieve your goal. The traits in you that got you to where you are right now will not be the same traits that will help you get to the next level. You MUST change. Are you holding on to the past? Are you sabotaging your dream and not even realizing it? What do you NOT want to do? Go TOWARDS the fear and discomfort. Your dream lives in the center of that fear. LISTEN NOW
What inspires you to keep going? Knowing what inspires us can keep us on the right track. But knowing isn't enough. We need to make sure we DO the things that inspire us! I am sharing with you the things that have inspired me and that continue to inspire me. I asked listeners to submit to me what inspires them and I am including their messages as well. LISTEN NOW
A "fatal flaw" is "a flaw which causes an otherwise noble or exceptional character to bring about their own downfall and, often, their eventual death."
