The previous steps are:

Step 1: How to Honor Your Discontent
Step 2: How to Test Your Dream
Step 3: The “You are Deserving” Mindset

To increase what you have you bless it. You are saying thank you for everything you have in your life: the house you live in, hot water, food in the pantry. Sometimes it can be just that simple. Acknowledge that you are blessed on many levels.

When you start acknowledging and being grateful for what you have, […]

Dream Building Step 4: How to Manage Your Fear

Today we are covering Step 4 of Dream Building. The past three weeks we have covered:

Step 1: How to Honor Your Discontent
Step 2: How to Test Your Dream
Step 3: The “You Are Deserving” Mindset


This week’s lesson is on how to manage your fear.

First, you need to understand what fear is. It’s nothing more than a border guard. It stands between where you are today in your reality and where you want to go. We unconsciously (and consciously) avoid discomfort and moving towards a big dream is definitely uncomfortable.

When fear rises instead of entertaining it as real or […]

Dream Building Step 3: The “You Are Deserving” Mindset

Today we are covering Step 3 of Dream Building. Step 1 was “Honoring Your Discontent.” Step 2 was “Testing Your Dream.”

When we have gone through Step 1 and 2 and have decided to follow our dream because it is worthy of us and we get all excited, guess what happens? Our ego rears it’s ugly head and starts telling you stories like: * ”What makes you think you can have this?” * ”Why do you think you deserve this?” * ”Remember all these other times that you tried something and failed.”

The ego is always going to come in […]

Dream Building Step 2: How to Test Your Dream

Today I want to talk about Step 2 in Dream Building. We covered Step 1 last week – “Honoring Your Discontent.” You can find this blog/video HERE. Step 2 is “How to Test Your Dream.”

There are five questions you need to ask yourself to determine if this is the dream you want to pursue. What you are doing is exchanging your time for your dream. Our time is our most valuable asset because we never know how much time we have. It’s going to take time to build things and you have to make sure it’s worthy of you.

Dream Building Step 1: How to Honor Your Discontent

I’d like to start a 10-part series on how to create your dream or dream building.

The first step in Dream Building is honoring your discontent.

We all have a choice in how we want to live our life. Most of us get into this mundane routine of getting up, going to work, coming home, going to sleep, and repeat day after day. We feel like there is something more and bigger than us that we need to do, but we are stuck in this rut.

When we honor our discontent we start to figure out why we’re feeling what we’re feeling. Usually, […]

The Fifth Daily Technique for Achieving Your Dreams

Today I want to talk about the fifth daily technique for achieving your dreams: the little things.

What does that mean? If you’ve followed the first four daily techniques you are:

In a thumbs-up day (this is how I’m going to live today and you’re in a state of gratitude),
Pointing your way (this is what I’m going to do today to move closer to my dream)
Mastering your fear that comes up (fear will ALWAYS come up.
Taking an action step, despite your fear, that will move you closer to your dream today

We all live very hectic, crazy lives. Our […]

How to Use Constructive Thinking to Create Your Dreams

Today I want to talk about constructive thinking. Last week I talked about having a blueprint of what you want. I also mentioned that a lot of what is in your unconscious mind is going to come to the forefront. This is because your mind is telling you that your blueprint is not part of the image of your life you are seeing.

There is no denying that this is going to happen and that’s okay because this is an unsettling part of your journey. Your ego is freaked out because it doesn’t know where it’s going. The ego does not like uncertainty!

As long as […]

Are You Taking Baby Steps on the Road to Your Best Life?

Today I want to talk about baby steps. When I started my business, Awakening Spirit, 20-plus years ago, I did it by taking baby steps without even realizing I was doing it.

We live in a 7-11 world. The microwave is too slow and all our problems are solved in an hour if we base our experience on the TV shows we watch.  That is not what real life is or what running a business is like.

When I started my company, I had a lot of head work I had to do. First I had to realize that I was worthy and deserving. I […]

Growth and Evolution as a Spiritual Being

What does growth and evolution as a spiritual being really mean? Once you are enlightened, does your life really change that much? Can it change that much? It all depends on you.

Many times we come to this Earth to evolve in a slow and methodical way. Then there are those times – like now – that acceleration happens and we are being forced to move from a young child, to adolescent, to young adult, to adult, to senior. How we move through life is how we move through the spiritual evolution. Some things we don’t have a choice […]
