The Essence of Your Dreams

“In fertile soil

may the essence of your dreams

grow into magnificent blossoms.”

~ Blessitude

Listen.  Listen to your heart.

To the place inside that is yearning.

Is there a dream not realized…

Something that won’t go away?

Listen.  Listen to the longing.

Honor the truth

And make a plan.

Your destiny awaits.

 

I’m really beginning to realize that each and every one of us comes into this world to play a part, or role, that is integral to the whole of the story.

I believe that deep down, in that place that no one else hears, there is a voice that speaks to us and guides us to our destiny.

I also believe that we spend an awful lot of time edging that voice out with the thinking voice in our head.

Here’s to quieting the mind and allowing the essence of our dreams to speak in tones we can hear.  And then may we make plans to honor what we hear, that which we already know deep inside.

Blessitude!

  1. Hi Lorrie, lovely message agree the mind must be silenced. The discernment is the most difficult thing people have to learn as there is so much confusing advice on what and what not to do. I follow my own strict practices on this. Blessings to you and such an amazing piece of artwork too.

    1. Thank you Sue 🙂
      I know that my center is getting stronger…and that I NEED to honor her guidance. I am so grateful for all that I learn with my mind…that resonates with all that exists inside me. There is a comparable synergy. Thank you for always showing your beautiful soul…I love when you leave your energy here. Blessings for a wonderful week ❤

  2. I love the essence of this message Lorrie… and such a beautiful watercolor image. 💕
    I was just thinking before reading your post about how, we tune in to what we love in our daily lives, but often are not even aware of it or how it nurtures us.
    When we become aware, we can take more and more steps in expressing ourselves and realizing our deepest dreams.

  3. “. . . every one of us comes into this world to play a part, or role, that is integral to the whole of the story.”

    This is a lovely concept, dear Lorrie, and I immediately thought of an analogy with jigsaw puzzles – each of us being a certain but altogether necessary pattern, without which the entire picture is not complete. All we have to do is bring harmony to the surface of our life’s interactions (our contributory piece of the visual picture) and maintain our original shape so as to fit (being authentic in our deeds and actions). If we can do these things, we play the fullest role we can in creating as complete a picture of harmony as is possible. No more can be asked of us, it would seem. H ❤

    1. Ah! Yes, Hariod! You have solved the ‘puzzle!’ It’s perfect really. No more could be asked of us if we are authentically OURSELVES. If we allow our own little piece of the puzzle to remain that which we are…then everything…everyone…”fits!” What a concept. Thanks dear friend. Hope all is well ♡

  4. Love the painting 😉
    For me at least, the voices in my head were the product of ‘shoulds,’ which I dropped a couple of decades ago, thankfully. Great reminder to reside in mindfulness, dear Lorrie. Aloha.

    1. Oh…Bela…the dreaded ‘shoulds!’ I am painfully aware of them…and work very hard to keep them out of my life. At the very least I try to replace should with ‘could” because it implies that it is a choice. Thank you, Bela…and Aloha to you ♡

  5. Ohhhhhh, you’ve been creating. Woohoo! Lovely art piece Lorrie.
    I totally believe we all have a purpose. I also believe that we are not just a body, but spirit and soul.
    Hope you are well, my friend.

  6. Beautiful beautiful message, Lorrie. I need to quiet my mind because it tells me everyone does photography these days so what are my chances of getting known? Hmmmmm …. And I say to that voice it’s not about fame but what I love to do. Follow your heart, dream, and have faith. Thank you! ❤

    2. The humble unknown never knew the importance of their offering until the Artist explained the Art at its completion. Yet…Life is so alive, the telling of it is only expressed in the experience of it.

      Your very own words, AmyRose, sparkle with Life!

      1. To read these precious words left me stunned, so much so, I read them again and again. The depth, the wisdom they contain has me in the presence of One whose footsteps carve Life itself upon this blue and green globe we call home. I am not able to express the immensity of what you offered me as a Gift, freely and unihibited. I am the humbled. I am honored. You have touched me to my core. The mystery of what you penned, I write to read again and again, leaving that paper next to me on my pillow. Bless you for speaking to me in such a manner that has directly changed something within me, charging me with vitality in which I now have the power to move forward. My Gratitude holds no bounds. ❤ ❤ ❤

  7. Haha Lorrie, I love when you write about something that I am right in the middle of , but struggling with it, and then this perfectly timed message which simply put me back on the right track – brierfly there has been this undercurrent of having to be prepared for a life that’s disappointing. I wasn’t feeling well and know that’s not a good time to evaluate.
    Yes, I forgot about all the dreams that I could pursue, all the different ways I can choose to make my life to take a direction or to decide to have none, all in the pursuit of adventure and seeing this world. Thanks Lorrie! xo Harlon

    1. Love your response, Harlon! I think most people kind of get used to the status quo and get into a rhythm of life doing the things they NE ED to do…and so often forget about the things they dreamed of doing…just plain forgot their dreams. We all have the ability to make things happen…we really do.
      Wishing you dreams that tickle your fancy and sending healing love that you feel better ♡♡
