Dreaming, Growing & Dichotomies

What do you snip off too soon? What do you not give enough growth time to? For many of us, myself included, it’s time to dream. I think I must be doing something in order to grow.

FairyTale_18MoonToday’s card reminds me of the growth that dreaming can inspire. Here lies Sleeping Beauty with her little cat on her legs. A beautiful picture of a castle hangs above her. The moon shines in casting glittering light on her face. Through the window a vine creeps.

It’s that vine that caught my eye. So often we trim things back. We don’t just let them grow, do we? I know someone who has allowed an outside vine into her house. It’s always a bit startling to walk through that front door to see green growth following me.

What do you snip off too soon? What do you not give enough growth time to? For many of us, myself included, it’s time to dream. I think I must be doing something in order to grow.

But really? Do I? If I don’t give myself time to dream…time to creep into other realities…time to stretch myself, how can I grow? It’s a dichotomy.

It’s a dichotomy that works, y’all. Do what needs to be done to achieve your goals. Yesterday I finalized an agreement with am artist that I admire. This person will be illustrating my Fairy Tales Tarot Spread eBook. By the way? The unillustrated version is free and if you get the workbook+planner, you get the unillustrated version for free AND the illustrated version once it is ready. Can’t beat that with a stick, right?

So I spent some time with that workbook+planner dreaming. I “wasted” time by lolling about with a pen and paper scribbling down things I wanted in my life. One of those things was to have an artist illustrate my spreads book.

Then I did something about that dream. I actually asked two people who were at the very top of my dream list and one said yes.

**THUD**

Yes? OMG! So not only did a dream come true, I checked a goal off of my 2013 goals on January 2. SECOND! I’m still pinching myself over that one.

So what are your dreams? What are your goals? What are you doing to achieve them? Are you spending time dreaming and creeping into other realities? Are you spending time actually writing down the goals and the steps?

Well why not? Let’s get to it, y’all! There are 362 days left in 2013. That’s plenty of time.

  1. It is great to allow your greams to grow and mature into somthing real. Too often we do tend to cut them off before they have time to spread and become relity. Thanks for your timely blog as everyone looks to starting a new year with new ideas!

  2. One of my evolutions this year is to have more ‘reflection’ time when it comes to my biz…..I do reflect, but having a time ‘on purpose’ to do it I believe will be powerful………and I keep a book of all my ideas and refer back to them…..this way I capture the idea and at a later date, I see if I’m still pumped about it or not……..this came to me when you said, ‘what do you snip off too soon’ πŸ™‚ Thx for sharing!

  3. *soft smile* I think my entire biz is a dream come true (well, mostly I do, anway!)

    Congratulations on reaching out to the artist – and extra congratulations for getting a yes! May this be a sign of how the rest of 2013 will go for you πŸ™‚

    Blessings

  4. So glad you’re following your dreams, Arwen! I was amazed when Will Worthington said yes to doing the Celtic Lenormand πŸ˜€ Like you say, dream and then do, and amazing things can happen!

  5. Oh, and there was a dream I had at the end of 2012, but hadn’t put in the planner (I’d kind of forgotten it by the time I got to the section of big dreamy dreams that might not even be possible). I just thought, “I wouldn’t even dare ask about that!” Then, this weekend, the person I didn’t dare approach contacted me!!! Still pinching myself πŸ˜€
