Dream Big... Help Has Arrived!
By Lisa Cherney



Have you ever had an idea, started from nothing, and made it a reality? If you are a parent you may have done this. If you are a business owner, you have done this. If you are an artist you have done this. My Conscious Marketing™ Program came from a notion of wanting to help people find the perfect, authentic words for their marketing.

I had an idea to create a workshop, but immediately “came to my senses” and put it aside. After all, I had tried to offer other programs and they didn’t take off. Why would this be different? I realize now (after 10 years and helping 1000s of clients) that it was different because it came from divine inspiration. Not my head trying to figure out a way to make money, but from a higher place.

When we are relaxed and allow the divine inspiration to come through, it is amazing what we can accomplish. The Universe (Spirit, Angels, the Divine, God, whatever you call it) is here to guide you into the realizing of dreams, but their guidance is often blocked. It is not given the space to come though and help. It wants to help, but we don’t allow it.

Of course this is not surprising since we don’t often accept help from people, let alone something we can’t see. We seem to have a need to do it all by ourselves and then we get stressed. When we are feeling stress (usually an indication we are not in the flow) then we REALLY don’t hear the Divine when it tries to guide us and offer support.

Step by Step Guidance
The irony is that we often ask Spirit for help. We look to the ceiling, with our arms up in surrender, and say, “God, help me!” We pray quietly asking for a sign that we are on the right track. But… we aren’t listening when help arrives. We reach out in times of dire straits, however, the Universe’s support is available every day. YOU don’t allow for the help to come through. If we did allow help to come though we would be creating amazing things. We would be unstoppable.

But instead we are lost in our minds and do not know how to come out long enough to hear divine inspiration, let alone stay in that space to be guided step by step. That is what is here for you if you are open… step by step guidance. These ideas are given to us for a reason. And it’s not so it sits unrealized in your head. It’s not just so it can be talked about for years. They are given to you for the world to see and Spirit is here for you, to help them come through.

So, how do we make sure we are listening for that step-by-step guidance? We sit, we meditate and we stop. We stop long enough to hear the guidance. We are mindful, we arrest our thinking, we eat, work, drive in peace, we walk, we write, we sing, we dance, we laugh, we cry we give ourselves the space to feel.
When was the last time you just let yourself feel without judgment? That means the feelings come though and you allow them, observe and do not try to figure them out. I mean it; do not try to figure them out!

Feelings are to be released, not to be analyzed. Then come back to the present moment. In other words, “As you become present and thereby total in what you do, your actions become charged with spiritual power” says Eckhart Tolle in his latest book The New Earth.

Are You Stuck?
It is this analysis that also keeps us stuck. Are you feeling stuck? Maybe you are stuck and just don’t know it because it is a habit you have had for a long time. Ask yourself these questions to see if you are stuck:
1. Are you feeling stuck?
2.  Do you feel like you are standing still while others move forward?
3.  Do you wish for things to be different, but are not doing anything different?
4.  Do you know you have a bigger purpose, but remain little?
5.  Do you run away from challenge?
6.  Do you know you are meant for bigger things?
7.  Do you have ideas and inspirations, but don’t see them manifesting?
8.  Are you a dreamer but don’t take them seriously?
9.  Do you feel like you will explode if something doesn’t change soon?

Is it time for you to allow your dreams to come through into reality? Not many teachers say this, but I believe it is not everyone’s path to realize their dreams. But, if you are reading this, it probably is YOUR path. Make now the time to see things happen. Now, don’t get overwhelmed by this challenge. Notice the feelings and be with them. Then take a step. Make a move, lean into it and enjoy the journey. That is the key.

Resist the temptation to get overwhelmed. That is your mind highjacking the idea and taking it to a space that it will surely never return from. Take it out into the sunlight and be with it. Allow it… and then ask the Universe for help. Don’t forget to look for the help to arrive. It is all around you. Keep your eyes wide open and it will come to you. This I know for sure.
