What is it about September that feels so inspiring?! Is it the beginning of a shift in weather, the fact that from here you can see the holidays just at the end of the block? Or perhaps that you know a new year is about to be ushered in?
Yes, I mentioned the New Year. I am already there, visioning what 2012 will be like. I have shared here before how looking into the calendar year, a process I call DreamCatching, has helped me successfully grow my career as an arts educator and workshop leader. If I could plan out the next six months to a year in a general way, I could fill in the details as the days and weeks passed. Dreams transform with the help action into actuality!
The exhilarating part is watching as the Universe brings possibilities our way. I grew up on the coast, on the Gulf of Mexico, watching surfers catch a wave and ride it to shore. They don’t choose every wave; they wait for the right ones.
As we begin to understand the Wildest Dreams we have for our lives, we will be able to determine which waves to catch. Will this wave take me where I want to go? Sometimes we aren’t sure, but often, if we are mindful of the inklings that bubble up inside, we can see which possibility matches our Wildest Dreams, and we can catch that wave.
I have been doing a lot of DreamCatching lately. I recently finished Flying Lessons and am rigorously working on a new website and on building an awesome collaborative community that I know you will feel right at home in. Last week, I signed up for a first-of-the-year class with mixed media artist Suzi Blu, and last night, I committed to a more intensive creative biz workshop with Kelly Rae and Beth Nicholls called Business Soul Sessions. Those two workshops will energize the two areas of my dream, energizing my own expressive art and developing a soul-connecting business, that I have identified as the most import for the next phase of actualizing the vision I have for my future. What a score!
The next six months is going to fly by. But with my long board under me, I can goofy-foot my way into the New Year!
Share some of the elements which make up your Wildest Dreams. What would it be like to have a community to support you as you stretch into claiming the possibility and actuality of those dreams? Let this community begin to grow in that direction together, it simply takes beginning to share and support one another’s passions. Do you dare catch this wave towards claiming your Wildest Dreams?
