Going Within


Awaken To Your Dream

Awaken To Your Dream  (above -Dawn’s  Healing Card AWAKEN)


We seek outside ourselves for answers that can really only be found by going within us.  The wisdom of the ages is found inside each and every one of us here on earth.  The journey to go within can seem very frightening at the beginning.  It’s so expansive and there is no instruction book explaining exactly how every step will look along the way, like a scientific experiment with guaranteed results every time.  Only hints and recommendations of what happened to this person or that person and what they felt or did while at the same time telling you to trust that it will work for you too.

That’s where the BIG leap of faith comes in.  Spirit will push the door open giving you opportunities to step into something new or different.  When the time is right for you, you will take those first steps into the doorway in a leap of faith that you may not even believe in.  You will do it because it “feels” like something you are supposed to be doing and it “feels” right for you.  Your GUT, your intuition, your knowing, will KNOW that it is the right thing to do, and that’s all you have to worry about to get started on the journey within you.

Along the way you will discover that you do have guideposts inside you from your life experience, from books you’ve read, and people you’ve talked to that point you in the right direction.  When you get stuck you’ll find that the right people will show up, the right books will come your way or just the right information will land in front of you to help you to the next step.

It’s not about perfection or doing everything the books say to do.  It’s about how you follow YOUR intuition and knowingness inside you.  It’s all about pure TRUST in yourself and Spirit.  How you walk it your way.  It’s about a leap of faith that you DO know what you’re doing, even if you don’t.  You just know you have to do it for YOU.

Wisdom is not playing one card against the other. 

Wisdom is holding your cards into the unknown and letting go of the outcome. 


Spiritual Paths And Change

Logo 1-5 inch

The spiritual path is about change, change in your life, changed in who you are, and sometimes change in the direction of your life.  It is something that initiates itself when you have reached a point in your life when you are ready for it, whether you know it or not.  It can be a gentle nudge, a solid push, or an absolute kick in the behind to jar you and get you going.

You begin to look around and take interest in life differently.  Subjects you may have wanted to study, classes you may have wanted to take or things that you never have dreamed would interest you will find their way mysteriously into your life.  And you’ll decide to explore one or all of them. That’s one of the changes that opens the door to let spirit in and a new adventure begin into who you really are inside.

If you should hear a mysterious knocking at your conscience door, take a chance and open it slowly at your own pace.  Be sure to ask if it is the light and truth of Spirit and in alignment with your highest and best good, as well as all those concerned.  Then gather your strength within you and step into the newness of what it brings you, thus allowing the healing journey to begin or continue.

Blessings and love to you all.



Stuck on a mountain and

No where to go.

Which way is the circle?

Which way is the snow?

The ice is all melting

And I’ve nowhere to go.

Help me I’m falling and

I need your help too.

Help me!  My habitat is

Falling into the sea.

And all I have with me is

This tiny iceberg and me.

WHEN IT FEELS LIKE THERE IS NOTHING TO HANG ONTO, HANG ON TO YOURSELF AND BREATH.  There is always a path forward.  We just need to slow down and take time to listen inside for the guidance of what to do next.  And sometimes that means just standing still waiting for the changes in yourself and others to catch up.  It’s OK to stand still.  It’s OK to be stuck.  It’s OK to be lost.  That just means your are exactly where you need to be so you can learn to listen inside better.

Breath slowly and deeply and wait.  Trust that the answer(s) will come when you and the universe are ready to hear them.  And know that you are safe and on the right path.  The light and truth of spirit are guiding you in all things.

The strength of winter is surrounding us as we step into the Holiday Season at the end of one year and beginning of a new one.  But this year there is an edge to it.  Our beliefs and lives have been placed in sort of a spin, whirling around waiting to learn what the government decision will be for a new National budget just before the year ends, how will the new health care policies really effect us, what will these new weather patterns bring the world next as we read about one major storm and disaster after another and so much more.

It is probably one of the most unstable times in our history pertaining to all issues in our lives.  And yet, how appropriate for these challenges to be facing us at this time of year, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.

More than ever, this year we will be given the opportunity to really push our belief systems on faith, trust, love, and gratefulness.  More than ever we will have to confront our own fears and pressures as we try to fulfill our own and others expectations for the season.  What do we really believe?  What do we really trust in?  How grateful and loving are we really?  How much of it is wrapped in money?

The past few years have taught many of us more about the true value of life as we have faced devastating losses from the economy, job losses and natural disasters.  Now again this year as began we moving towards recovery, only to find more obstacles in our way, we will be asked to draw upon the very bare bones of our beliefs and graces.  What do we believe and trust?

The true meaning of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years were to celebrate people, life, birth, relationships and hope.  They were created with faith and love towards others and themselves, joining different cultures and beliefs together in hope of a greater and better future for all concerned.

They did not center on how big of a gift they could give or even how many; not how much money they did or didn’t spend on who for what.  It wasn’t about who had what and who didn’t.

It was about the gift of themselves to each other in sharing and listening, reaching out to understand and celebrate the likenesses and differences they had.  To celebrate the newness of what they were creating together from the work they had done to get that far.

Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years all center on the births of new ways of thinking and being and the plans of how to change in the future to achieve those goals.  And these will be our same challenges this year as we are drawn back into our basics (memories, fears, beliefs, jealousies, joys, and pains).  We will be reaching into our own souls to find a way to make the holidays ring in joy and merriment.

Who are we really doing it for and why?  What really counts in our lives?  Why are we so caught up in what others think about us that we go broke trying to impress and please everyone else instead of really just enjoying each other and celebrating the true meaning of the holiday season.  What do we really believe and trust and what and who do we believe in?  Ourselves should be part of that answer and each of us will fill in the blanks with the rest.

Many blessings to all of you and all the various beliefs and faiths and holidays you all have and celebrate.  From me, I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful and better New Year.  Blessings, Dawn
