Have you ever had a dream that was so powerful that it drove you to do crazy, unreasonable, unconventional things?

I have had a decade long dream to sail in the Mediterranean.

I have visualized being in the healing waters of Mykonos hundreds of times.  I would close my eyes and feel what it would be like to walk the streets of Santorini feeling the timeless beauty of the snow white architecture and admiring the spectacular views from the cliffs.

And for many, many years this vision  seemed like a pipe dream.

As soon as I saw that Abraham Hicks Publications (Esther Hicks is one of my greatest teachers) was doing a seminar on a Mediterranean cruise in September 2013, I knew I had to go.

But I kept waiting for my husband to get time off of work so we could go together.  I waited  for the money to come in. I waited for someone to give me permission to be gone during my kids’ birthdays. I waited for everything to align perfectly.  And it just didn’t.

So I had a choice.

Do I let the external circumstances prevent me from going or do I follow my heart  and go anyway?

How many times in your life have you felt something strongly in your gut, but over-rode it with your rational mind?  How did that turn out for you?

For me, it always felt like I cheated on myself.   I just couldn’t spend one more minute ignoring what my inner wisdom was telling me.

So after a particularly powerful MasterMind group session and subsequent conversation with one of my alignment buddies,  I got into such a place of clarity about who I am, I knew I HAD TO GO!

And once I made the decision, everything else flowed.  How I managed to register for a sold-out cruise less than a week before the start, get killer tickets to Europe and line up fabulous childcare will be a story for another time, all I can tell you is that when you are in alignment with your desire, life will bend over backwards to bring you to it!

And at the end of the 11-day Mediterranean adventure, I knew unequivocally why I was so called to take this trip.  I literally felt reborn by this experience.

I learned invaluable lessons, experienced crazy amazing things like seeing auras for the first time (still can’t believe it!), hung out with billionaires, famous authors and leaders in their fields, but most importantly, I allowed myself to be smitten all over again.

I fell for me. HARD.  😉

This magnified self-appreciation, new ability to romance myself and increased capacity to give/receive love is PRICELESS and worth every step of the way.

I lived and breathed such magnificence, I spent so much time meditating, appreciating, MasterMinding and enjoying life to the max, that I am not the same person who left for Rome three weeks ago.

I am a more self-assured, brilliant, witty, limitless, creative and powerful version of me.  And that is worth EVERYTHING in my book.  Because just like a mirror, the world will reflect back to me my inner expression.  And I cannot wait to see how this new version of me shows up in the world!

So here is my challenge for you.  Think of a dream that you’ve had for a long time.  Maybe it’s to travel to India, maybe it’s to become a yoga teacher, maybe it’s to have children or to feel deep inner peace.

Commit to taking one step (Just ONE!) this week toward your vision.

It can be as simple as reading a book about a place you want to visit, signing up for a Catch a Vision session to receive a customized written vision for your BIG DREAM or journaling a script of what it would feel like to already be living one of your life goals.

The important thing is that you signal to yourself and to all existence that you know what you want and you’re ready for it.

And there is no better way to do that then to post what step you are taking in the comments below. Let me hold the vision for you and support you on your journey!

Sunrise over Istanbul.

And when you arrive at your goal you will recognize that the only reason for the destination was to have the journey.

Before you know it, you will be watching the most spectacular sunrise over Istanbul after a night of ecstatic dancing, feeling so ALIVE, so full of yourself, so invincible, that you will have no remaining doubt that truly anything is possible.

And you will recognize that the reason things didn’t line up the way you were hoping was so that you can unequivocally prove to yourself that circumstances don’t determine how you feel and what you do.

You set the tone and then watch that intention ripple out in your life.

I’m looking forward to reading your visions and the steps you will take this week!

In Great Joy,

Lana
