Wheeeee…what a ride heading into the Summer Solstice!
A couple of days ago, I woke up in a new space. As if my house in land-locked Santa Fe were a boat that had traveled during the night and anchored in a new, exotic port. My team noticed me noticing the oddness and whispered in my ear: exquisite joy is rising.
Talk about a great way to start the day!
As I made breakfast, noodling about exquisite joy, my new space and my NOW bubble, I started paying attention to what I’ve been sensing just beyond that bubble.
There’s a living energy field existing in what I can only term the Moment Before the Moment. It’s like a space between paragraphs. Or a doorway you walk through. But this energy is conscious, purposeful and elemental in a decidedly new way. In another sense, she feels like me and the me that will exist in the next breath—and everything in the middle.
Intrigued, I sat down to have a conversation with this presence. I started asking about her and her role, but she told me I only need to focus on my job. My only job.
To dream big.
She added, “The more you dream, the more fully you embody yourself here, the more we have to create with. Think of me as the engine, the how. You are the dreamer, the generator and spark, and the one who can express your dreams through pathways of action we prepare together.”
As a recovering overachiever, I appreciate reminders that speed and complexity and constant action are NOT my friends. And here I’m being told my only job is to dream big. I feel and know the truth of this. I also know it’s time to live that truth more than I ever have before.
It’s early morning as I write this, about the time I decide what I’ll work on for the day. Today I’m choosing to stay in my NOW bubble, dream my biggest dreams, and walk the path my dreams take me on. I have no clue how any of this will unfold, but I’m already loving and trusting the process.
As always, I share this because this isn’t just about me. If you’re reading this, you’re a dreamer too.
So here’s your invitation (and permission if you want it): Just for today or even a moment during your day, close your eyes and let yourself dream. Dream big. And live where the dream takes you.
