A couple of months ago, I came across this quote via a dear friend…
For a variety of reasons, I immediately fell in love with it. First off, it symbolized my recent and unwavering love for the mystical side of life. It alludes to my own reality. I don’t always see life through the eyes of the masses and have discovered that there is much more to life than the plans I make for Saturday night, the trip I’m going to take next month, or the school program on Wednesday night (although, paradoxically, the present moment is all we really have). Here, the unicorn metaphor fits perfectly.
When did I discover my unicorn? The moment I made a choice to live with purpose. I wasn’t really sure what that meant (and I’m definitely still figuring it out) but I knew that it involved rediscovering my inner desires and drives. I had to uncover the things that light and nurture my fire. Here are a couple of the experiences I pursued that sparked me up along the way.
1. My interest in soul was birthed out of a conversation with a friend about missing my dad. A book referral and a recommendation to take a course on developing my psychic abilities kick started a whole new reality for me. This course reinforced my unfolding notion that there is truly more to life than meets my naked eye. Have you ever opened your third eye? You should try it. No, really, you should! There is a new, six week course starting this weekend if you are interested. Leigh Hopkins and Echo Bodine do NOT disappoint! You don’t have to be psychic (at all) to enroll in the course and you will learn oodles about yourself.
2. As I began to use the knowledge and skills I learned in the course with Leigh and Echo, my intuition began pulling me towards pen and paper. Writing, really? The last time I wrote anything more involved than an informal email was more than 5 years ago in graduate school. No matter, I signed up for an e-course on building a blog because I knew that my soul needed this form of expression. I expected to learn a few things about setting up a blog and attracting an audience. I had NO IDEA what I was really in for because it can’t adequately be expressed! This course should be called ‘Discover your magnificence, love life and yourself, show the world what you’ve got, and learn ALL the ins and outs of building that blog you truly love!’ No kidding. Through the course, not only did I learn about building a blog, but I also completely transformed into a person who knew I could do anything that I set my mind to. Thank you, Liv Lane, for contributing to the path that led me to this moment. It just so happens that this course is being offered again! It is more than worth the effort and time if you have ever considered a bloggity-blog-life. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… if you enroll and are disappointed, I’ll personally refund your money! Click here for more information: How to Build a Blog You Truly Love

3. I loved the first Psychic Development course so much that I am now enrolled (and in the middle of) the second course. It is enlightening, fun, and intensely interesting to connect because I finally feel like I’ve found a group of people who are likeminded and understanding of purpose and soul. I can’t say enough about Leigh and Echo. Thank you for facilitating my development… again! This and other courses can found at Viva Institute.
4. The path continues! I don’t know about you, but I see a theme. I must love me some e-courses! I just signed up for a Writing Course that starts June 1st with Jess Morrow of Invincible Summer. What can I say? My intuition told me to do it and these days, my intuition rules! I’ll share an update after I start the class but I already know it is going to be incredible!
There’s more… it’s #5. I just can’t share it quite yet. Let’s just say that I am really excited about… my life! My dreams are materializing as a result of these opportunities and my own willingness to recognize life’s opportunities.
You can do it too. You can make your dreams a reality. What interests you? Where is your heart? What risks have you taken recently? With whom do you share your hopes and dreams? Do YOU know your own dreams for this lifetime? Where is YOUR unicorn?
Here’s the thing… there will always be people in your life who question you, mock you, roll their eyes at your dreams, and wonder if you’ve gone mad (for the record, I’d rather be ‘crazy’ than complacent). There will always be excuses that you “can’t find the time” to follow your dreams. These hurdles can feel disheartening and frustrating, but you are amazing, and can blaze your own trail. So, go out there, grab a unicorn, and take a ride on the way to your dreams! At this moment, you have one life… take the risk of living it!
