Did you ever have an experience that was personal and you went public with it? It is so difficult to do because deep down in your belief system there is a part of you that is so strong, but you cannot share it because you go into a “fear place.” That was the case with my secret dream.
But I made my secret dream public this past week. I try not to bring to the table things such as religion and politics. I do however have a dream that underlies all my online activity. One that keeps me up until 3 a.m. writing, working and syndicating to realize my dream.
Sometimes our goals are private and we really don’t want to share them with others. It is something we have deep in our hearts. I have shared my goal on a piece of paper, drawing a tree with branches… and on the top I placed my true goal. Each branch contained an opportunity in my business. Things I needed to work on. Also things I needed to snip off, to make my tree strong and healthy.
On top of the tree is my secret goal. One I strive for. It is not for myself, because I am truly happy with the means to the goal… the process of internet marketing via Social Media. It is through this process that I have grown to create beautiful relationships and solid business partners.
About two weeks ago, I had an “Aha” moment that struck me while I was deep in meditation: “You must go public with your dream and spread the word.” I jolted up, in fear.
No way can I bring up my secret dream, my ultimate goal! People wouldn’t agree with me. I could jeopardize some the relationships I have formed. Well, that lasted for about 60 seconds. The challenge presented in my “Aha” moment was far stronger than my fear.
Now, Hmmm, how do I go about this? It is totally off the course of what I write about in my blogs. It comes out of the blue. So I let it go.
Surprisingly, I met up with Edward Elliott.
On his blog, he encourages a group of people to share their dreams on Fridays.
This caught my eye and I joined the group. Shortly after that, he got in touch with me and we had a conversation on Skype. He asked for my story.
Well, there was my answer to the big question of how to get the word out. I scurried on Thursday to put something together for him and he posted it the next day.
There I was facing the spoken word of my personal dream. Coincidence? Of course not. In my business, I always tell people “there is no such thing as coincidence”.
You may call it God, Collective Consciousness or Law of Attraction. Whatever word you choose is ok. But I ask you this: What are the chances of an experiencing an “Aha” moment that would become manifest one a week later?
What I want to stress here is that we can set up our dream lists, we can read books or write about it, but it is not until the spoken word is formed, that our dreams come true.
Words have power. In the beginning was The Word.
I spoke about something a bit controversial and knew that some people would disagree with me and that is O.K. But Edward came to my life and connected with me to pull me out of my Dream Closet.
This blog is dedicated to Edward Elliott and all his efforts and the wonders he is creating. He just celebrated his 11th anniversary with his wife and they look so happy on Facebook.
God does work in strange ways. I am so grateful to you Edward. Happy Anniversary and may your journey with your wife be blessed.
