Find a quiet moment. Turn off the phone, the TV, the stereo, and commit to not answering the door. This is your time. Your sacred time. Tell the children, your spouse, or your room-mate to leave you undisturbed for a while. You have sacred work to do. You might want to light a candle or place a bowl of water near you, but most of all, what you need most is your solitude.

Allow yourself to be aware of one thing you want to create in this world. Just one thing. Be with this dream and desire. As you watch, sense, see, hear or feel it in your imagination; let it come alive. Feel what it is like for you when this is fulfilled. Nurture this feeling with your love and appreciation.

If any feelings of unworthiness, doubt, or any fears come up, simply hold them in your love. Do not try to fix your feelings. They are there for a reason. Rather lovingly comfort those feelings with your compassion. Notice they eventually dissipate. Then focus once again with love on your dream until it feels full and strong in you.

When you feel full, breathe deeply, exhaling through your mouth, bringing yourself into the awareness of this moment. Wiggle your fingers and toes. Gently open your eyes. Live from your dreams.
