“I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments” as stated by Oriah in her book “The Invitation”.

Have the courage to sit alone and look deep within yourself. Sit with your own company and be still? Await the words of the heart? What dreams have you put on the back burner? What do you wish for? What goals are you ready to pursue? Do you even know for sure which direction to go in?

If you don't know the answers to these questions, do not worry. You only have to take simple steps to find them.

Clear the chatter in your head. Be Still. Be silent. The answers will be revealed if you are patient. It is time now to create the life you want. It takes courage to set your dreams in motion; determination to keep them on track; risk to take the first step; passion to fuel your inner fire; joy in living the life created by YOU. And create it you must!

Get to know yourself, what is it that YOU really want in your life? Be still. Turn off the television, shut down your computer, put your phone on quiet mode for one solid moment. Think. Dream. Pray. Meditate. Give thanks. Ask to be lead to where you need to be. There are signs all around you pointing you in the direction of your dreams. I truly believe nothing is by chance. When you stay in tuned with yourself and to your surroundings; answers are everywhere. All around you are people you are meant to meet, places you need to go but you must stay present. Don’t be 3 steps ahead of yourself. Be still. Pay attention. Be alert. Now is the time. Create your life exactly how you want it to be. Imagine a life of joy knowing you are living your dreams. It all started for me sitting in solitude by the ocean. In silence our dreams are manifested.

That is my wish for you.

We always attract into our lives whatever we think about most, believe most strongly, expect on the deepest level, and imagine most vividly.” ~Shakti Gawain
