I Have A Dream…(And So Do You!)

And everything else Dr. Martin Luther King stood for, took courage and undoubtedly challenged him in immeasurable ways.

And yet, he bravely continued to stand up and fight for what he believed in.

Over and over again.

Because he, like many of you, believed in justice and equality, peace and freedom, love and hope, and the power that comes when you give life to your dreams.

And yet, waking up to the Truth of who you are, trusting the guidance you receive and using your voice to create positive change in a world that is mostly asleep, can feel excruciatingly difficult.

In fact The Healer’s Journey™ is not easy.

It requires you to die (an ego death) over and over again.

And in the case of some great souls, it literally means dying for what they believed in (but that is a post for another time).

It calls forth strength and courage – which you doubt you have (as they are often deeply hidden) under the not “good enough” stories and beliefs that live within you, and leave you feeling small, insignificant or less than

And yet, “The Call” can not be ignored.

You are being summons to greatness and are being asked to risk everything as you peel back those old stories and allow your inner heart light to shine.

The Healer’s Journey™ asks you to be vulnerable, trusting, honest and transparent, while mastering the art of letting go.

Not easy tasks.

Luckily, there are teachers, mentors, and guides who have come before us, and left wisdom upon our paths, to lift us up and remind us that we are not alone, and that how we feel is right, true and needed.

Yes, even the difficult parts…

And people like Dr. Martin Luther King whose voice reverberated the TRUTH he lived and died for…

Or those spoken in a dreamlike whisper by Hafiz, a Sufi poet who lived 700 years ago…

They remind us that even the masters have felt, know and understand the difficulty encountered on the journey HOME.

You are not in fact crazy, alone or off course.

These feelings are part of the journey!

I revisit quotes by greats like these often, especially when I am struck with difficulty, I feel weary or disheartened, or simply need inspiration to keep me moving in the direction of realizing my dreams.

MY SWEET, CRUSHED ANGEL

You have not danced so badly, my dear,

Trying to hold hands with the Beautiful One.

You have waltzed with great style,

My sweet, crushed angel,

To have ever neared God’s heart at all.

Our Partner is notoriously difficult to follow,

And even His best musicians are not always easy

To hear.

So what if the music has stopped for a while.

So what

If the price of admission to the Divine

Is out of reach tonight.

So what, my dear,

If you do not have the ante to gamble for Real Love.

The mind and the body are famous

For holding the heart ransom,

But Hafiz knows the Beloved’s eternal habits.

Have patience,

For He will not be able to resist your longing

For Long.

You have not danced so badly, my dear,

Trying to kiss the Beautiful One.

You have actually waltzed with tremendous style,

O my sweet,

O my sweet crushed angel.

My Sweet, Crushed Angel

-Hafiz

(as rendered by Daniel Ladinsky in I Heard God Laughing)

And just like Dr. MLK and Hafiz, YOU are being called into greatness by a force much larger than yourself. I encourage you to trust your guidance.

I also invite you to courageously give rise to the voice to the TRUTH that lives deep inside you, as I know there are many others in the world who are touched and inspired by your presence.

Each month a group of courageous and creative entrepreneurs on a spiritual journey come together in a circle to open our hearts more deeply to the truth of who we are, as we find our voice, and do our part to make the world a better place.

If you are looking for a community of women who are using their spiritual gifts to bring more love, peace and healing into the world, please join us.
