I love Spring! I feel rejuvinated, exuberant and inspired to let fresh ideas hatch. Although I generally have lots of ideas and dreams underway at any given time, regardless of the season, Spring is a time I tend to focus more on my dreams. I start by asking a question: What do I really want in my life? My answer begins with acknowledging all of the things that I am grateful for in my life already. From here, I focus on what else I want to create in my life. Then I write it down. Next, I send those dreams and goals loving energy while giving them plenty of room to unfold, bloom and manifest in whatever way is the highest and best. Over the years, I’ve found that Spirit’s plan is always far better than my plan; although, admittedly, there have been times when I have argued that point or felt impatient that things were not moving along fast enough for my liking. Yup, I’m still working on patience.
What I have found works best for me is focusing my attention on a dream, being willing to do whatever it takes, allowing the path to unfold and being open to surprises that I may not have anticipated. In a nutshell, I state my prayer, do the footwork, get out of Spirit’s way, and trust that whatever comes is in my highest and best interest. When I do that, it’s easy. It’s only difficult when I resist. So now that Spring is upon us, I’m ready to get busy dreaming!

“On the threshold of a dream… out of death shall come life…”(The Moody Blues). This is the best way to describe the passing of my precious Patches, my 16 year old calico cat. She had been failing for months, but I had promised her that she would not have to tolerate a vet, unless she chose it. I had a session with Rain on Monday evening. It was at that time I was told Patches was almost ready to go, but first I had some work that I needed to do. My guides stepped in to help, giving me suggestions of what I could do. I decided to take a couple of days off from work. What unfolded was incredible and has been life altering for me.
