The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.~Eleanor Roosevelt
Today’s card Pay attention to your dreams and Doreen Virtue’s words are great today. I had been planning to introduce a dream (vision) board exercise this weekend.
Are you good at remembering your dreams? I rarely dream, or maybe I should say I don’t recall my dreams.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe. ~ Anatole France
My Prayer: Thank you for tucking me into bed tonight and helping me enjoy a wonderfully restful night’s sleep. Archangel Michael i invite you into my dreams, as my teacher, guide and healer. Please allow me to understand this ( put in your situation) on a spiritual level and give me guidance
The message my guides gave me today when I journaled after drawing this card was:
So tonight ask Archangel Michael to help remember you dreams and record them when you wake or get a nudge in the middle of the night.You have a dream book so start to use it and it will really help you release those final fears that are stopping you full living your purpose. make a gratitude dream board too.
The message from the card reminded me although I may not remember my dreams, the information resides in my subconscious and helps me in many ways. the dream journal will prove access to Archangel Michael’s counsel.
Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions. ~ Edgar Cayce
Today’s Activity: This comes from The Vision Board Bookby Joyce Schwartz. I received my Vision Board coaching certification and the wonderful award of the Vision Board Coach of the year for 2013from Joyce.
The 7 wonders of you:This is an activity I use with my clients to get into a state of gratitude about their talents and when maybe they have hit a gratitude brick wall and can’t see all the abundance that they have to be thankful for. It happens. I know the other day I was doing my daily five and I went blank. So if y0u get stuck this mindmap I found on Pinterest might be useful
Now back to the 7 Wonders of you. We are going to make a Gratitude vision board over the next two days that will celebrate the wonders in your own life. often we forget to be grateful just for being. So to get inspired for this we are going to focus on this 7 wonders of you activity. To WONDER-To be filled with admiration.
Do you take time to appreciate the wonder of you? Are you grateful for living?
So what are the 7 wonders of your life? What are the states of being that inspire you, that give you a sense of purpose, make your heart sing and fill your heart with joy. You can always ask a friend or your partner what they see as the wonder of you. For TALK came from Des as we were walking on the beach this afternoon and I was sharing this exercise with him. He reminded me of what how my talks and interviews inspire others
Here are my initial ones that I am going to put into my dreams tonight and tomorrow meditate on:
Love, Talk, See, Create, Heal, Inspire and Hear
Play with the idea and see what you come up with. Start with 2 or 3 and add to it. Tomorrow we will expand on this and them make a Gratitude dream board based on your 7 wonders of you. You can download a blank one here.
Here are some quotes to inspire you 🙂
The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams. ~ Oprah Winfrey
Dreaming after all is a form of planning ~ Gloria Steinem
“Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities.~ Tolkien
“If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less, but to dream more, to dream all the time.” ~ Marcel Proust,
Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you~ Marsha Norman
Write down five things you are grateful for today- maybe focus on being grateful for times in your life that have had you walking a different path Count your blessings one by one as you started to on Day 6.
Use Hoʻoponopono if you need to relax, center yourself or to be forgiving of you.
Still using your gratitude rock? I was reading today the Lee Bower suggest you use your gratitude rock daily: Say a phrase: Everyday I choose to be in an attitude of gratitude. I get to chose how each day begins and receive the positive energy that accompanies my awesomeness of and gratitude for all of the many blessings in my life.
If you can dream it you can do it ~Walt Disney
Until tomorrow keep touching your gratitude rock and counting your blessings and seeing the abundance that you already have.

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. – H. P. Lovecraftis
Are you following your heart’s desire or does fear stop you?
The title for this post came to me in a meditation last week and then as if the universe was in sync, I discovered as I made my tour around the blogosphere, as I opened my email and then on Facebook others were writing about the same topics- Desires, Dreams and FEAR
How many of you get stopped by FEAR? I know I do!
Fear of the unknown
Dreaded fear of the what if syndrome
Fear of stepping out and moving beyond your comfort zone
Fear of being discovered! Now that means you do have to come out of hiding 🙂 and I am sure you can add more.
Is Fear an Illusion?
Robin Easton says:The monster called “Fear” has a seemingly very “reasonable” way of tricking us back into our complacency, our inactivity, and even our deadness. However, I’ve found that fear is more often than not an illusion.”
FEAR so often stops us living our dreams, yet when we take that one courageous step forward new ways of being spring forth. It is then we can shine our light and live our dream, our heart’s desire and be the hero or heroine in our own life. I know so often I get stopped by fear of the dreaded what if syndrome. Yet we probably have all seen the acronym for fear False Evidence Appearing Real and this is what I so often forget. It’s not real it what we think, we just don’t know. this can have us playing small as well as missing I believe much joy not to mention golden opportunities that will pass by.
When we can tap into out heart’s desires and step into our dreams we wake up and begin to shine our light and miracles can happen. We will then experience more feelings of joy and abundance not to mention those of love and empowerment.
How do we overcome our fears? How do we remain fearless?
On my journey around my favorite blogs I discovered a wonderful resource from Tess at The Bold Life : 75 Ways to remain fearless. Just a few if these ways will move you forward. One of my favorites is no 48: Radiate abundance. Prosperity is a knowing. Think abundant thoughts, make abundant choices, be an abundant person. I know that when you live in and from abundance the way you see yourself and the world will change in a positive way
We need to take action to move out of out fear as Kathleen Gage said in the email I opened that morning “Oprah didn’t happen upon her success. Nope. She failed a bunch of times and had to deal with the fears that haunted her. She got it wrong long before she got it right. Many people don’t realize that Oprah’s first television debut was a complete failure, but that didn’t hold her back. She rose above seemingly insurmountable odds (and lots of getting it wrong) to become one of the most influential women in history”
Today I feel like I am starting out on a new journey to move out of my comfort zone and shine my light. The past 14 months I have been able to hide behind my illness and my fractures and really putting myself out there again takes courage and I am listening closely to my heart’s desire, my heart whispers and following my intuition. It feels good and I am happy to be moving forward fearlessly.
Fear is not you enemy it is your compass pointing you to areas you need to grow– Steve Pavlina

“The Intuition principle is about getting in touch with who you are authentically by listening to your intuition.” – Angela Artemis
Angela Artemis says The Intuition Principle is the key to finding your purpose, living with passion and joy, and heightening your success. It is that inner voice that directs you in times of need and the unexpected solution to a problem that appears just when you need it. The Intuition Principle is a book that will empower you. I have been using my intuition for many years and there are new exercises Angela has introduced me to through the book that will extend my intuitive life.
I had the pleasure of talking with Angela about how and why she developed her intuition, why she wrote the book, how she helped me through giving me a prescription that rekindled my creativity and more. I hope you will find something that touches your heart and inspires you to to either begin to use or extend your intuitive practice.
Did you have some ah ha moments during the video? Please share in the comments below. Did what Angela shared open the door to either expanding or growing your intuition? The Intuition Principle can show you how to create the life you were always meant to live by :
