I am terrified to admit what I really want.

October 30, 2018

Last week I was journaling and I noticed that when I tried to admit what I *really* want, like just to myself in my journal, my mind would jump over to this place of listing all the reasons I can’t have it. Like:

Well yeah I want ______ but I don’t want to do do a bunch of annoying work to get it.

I would be so happy if I had _____ but that would mean I would have to _____ and that would suck.

I wish I could just ______ but to do that I need to ______ and that never works.

So instead of staying with the first part of the sentence, the part where I’m connecting with the joy and magic of my dream, I leap into the second part where I’m focusing on the parts I don’t want.

I’m also making about stories about what I have to do to get what I want.

And making a whole pile of excuses for myself to not even try.

Because admitting that I want what I want feels too vulnerable right now.

What I want feels far away and impossible. So I jump over into the excuses to save myself the discomfort of being in that scary vulnerable place.

But I really want it. So I keep going back to it, then jumping back into the excuses, over and over.

Something needs to give.

I don’t know WHAT needs to give. And I feel like I should know because this is what I do, I help people move towards dreams that are so vulnerable they are afraid to even say it out loud. I mean this is my job! Why am I so lost?

So put on my teacher’s hat which gives me a new perspective.

The path isn’t just non-linear it’s non-directional – you’re floating in Dream Space sweetheart be gentle with yourself.

If you already had all the answers that would mean you’re doing something you’ve done before. To grow beyond where you’ve been you’ve got to be in this space of not-knowing.

Which means: you are *exactly* in the right place.

And it’s in this place of excruciating vulnerability and feeling lost and impossible about your dream where you’re going  to build the path.

This is how it works babe.

I take off my teacher’s hat and sit with that.

Everything feels re-arranged in my mind.

Now, I can admit to myself that I want it. And I feel those excuses falling away, making space for new possibilities.

What’s changed?

I’m able to hold my dream without having to know what I’ll have to do to make it happen. I’m willing to be with the truth of how I feel: the truth is I want this thing.

My desire for it has nothing to do with my lack of knowing how to make it happen or my fear that I am not able to make it happen.

I have permission to not know how to make it happen. I have permission to feel how I feel and want what I want.

Yup this dream still feels scary. I worry I’m going to have to step far out of my comfort zone for this one. But that worry is not so excruciating that I can’t admit to myself what I want.

Progress.

Some advice if you’re in this boat too:

Being terrified to admit to your dream means you’re not giving yourself enough space to feel your feelings around your dream.

So give yourself some space to make room for your feelings, all of them: the discomfort, the vulnerability, the fear, the excitement, the love you have for your dream.

Once you make space to feel that excruciating vulnerability of it you’ll have space to feel the magic and joy of it. You’ll be able to settle into your dream.

This doesn’t mean your dream will just magically come true for you.

But it does mean you’ll be a position to start working/playing with it.

Want some help with this?

Join me for Centered. Grounded. Present. We start on Monday!

This is a three week online coaching group with 2 goals:

  1. To make space to process whatever makes it hard to be centered, grounded and present
  2. To help you go into the holidays and the new year feeling more centered, grounded and present.

Give yourself some space to process your fears and uncertainties you’ll have space to feel the magic and joy of your dream.

I mean – just having a dream is so vulnerable! I’ve been a dreamer all my life, and a professional full-time dreamer for eight years and I STILL feel terrified when new dreams come to me.

This is how dreams work. They are here to grow us and that growth process is scary sometimes.

So let’s take some time to process all of this together because the only way out is through.

Together we’ll get centered, grounded and present so we can make space to work through whatever we need to work though at this time.

The uncomfortable feelings that come up around a dream FEEL SO BIG but it’s usually easier than we think to move through them – when we’re able to really make space for them. That’s what this group will help you do.

I planned this for November so that we could be in a position to really enjoy the holidays and start the new year feeling clear and ready to make magic happen.

This is what’s included:

We’ll have three coaching calls on Zoom (happening on Monday November 5, 12 and 19th at 1:00 Central). This is where we’ll make space and do magic together. I’ll lead you through alchemy processes to invite these qualities in and then you’ll work through whatever comes up for you in that work – so each person in the group will be on their unique journey within the supportive space of our circle.

Yes the calls will be recorded and after the first call you can send your questions in ahead of time so I’ll address them on the calls if you can’t attend live.

We’ll have a private forum (open for three weeks only) to share and get support outside of the calls.

And you’ll get a downloadable guided meditation for getting centered, grounded and present – keep it on your phone so you’ve always got it with you.

This is how registration works:

This is free for everyone who is a member of the Creative Dream Circle.

If you’re not a member of the Circle you can join Centered Grounded Present for $99 US. 

This will give you access to the Coaching Group PLUS everything in the Creative Dream Circle for 30 days: from Nov 5, 2018 to Dec 5, 2019.

Centered Grounded Present is a 21 day program – you get an extra 9 days at the end because transformative work changes things, often in unexpected ways. So this way you have some time in the Circle with lots of classes, recourses and support to work through whatever may come up for you.

Please read the Coaching Group Guidelines + Policies carefully for all of the details. In order to create and maintain the container that allows deep transformative work to happen, all participants must read + agree to the Guidelines + Policies. And so: these policies are non-negotiable.

New Video: On not feeling confident

I’m in one of those phases where my dreams are growing me and this is always worth in the end but it’s uncomfortable during the process.

Yesterday I took a nap at 9:30 am.

October 16, 2018

I am a morning person. I do usually bound out of bed excited to start a new day, that is a major benefit of being self-employed doing the things you love most.

But yesterday I could not get moving. Everything I tried to do felt wrong. I felt heavy, like I was moving through concrete.

By 9:30 am all I could do was take a nap. VERY unusual for me.

I actually lay in bed and meditated until I fell asleep, which felt amazing. And I woke up feeling clearer.

I could see how hard it was to get to work on my creative projects when I had so much on my mind and in my heart. Climate change and the rise of far-right politics. Children being kept in cages. The Supreme Court of Canada giving the government permission to break the treaties…

It’s not just on my mind there are so many heavy feelings to process around everything that’s happening in the world right now.

And those heavy feelings make it hard to get in touch with our creativity and our dreams.

But we need our creativity and our dreams to lead us through this. Making space to process all of these heavy feelings so we can work through them is vital right now.

Yesterday I was able to meditate and process most of the morning. Then I could get back in touch with my creativity and had a productive afternoon moving my dream projects forward.

This is the miracle of Inner Work.

I know I’m really lucky to have the time and space in my schedule to do that. But right now we ALL need to figure out how to make time for this. That’s why I am doing this:


Centered. Grounded. Present.

There are a lot of gifts in being sensitive and empathic – but right now it’s pretty much a recipe for overwhelm.

So let’s take some time to process all of this because the only way out is through.

By making space to really be with everything that’s going on inside you right now, you allow it to move through you. You process it and then let it go so you can create clearer space for yourself to step into the new year full of possibilities and magic.

So let’s get centered, grounded and present so we can show up for 2019 sparkling like the jewels we are!
