Today's Wishcasting asks What dream do you wish to explore? Immediately I think of my Aunt for whom Cowgirl is named, and who always said to me "you can always dream; dreaming is for free!" If I've discovered anything in the past year, it is not to stop at dreaming, but to think about Action and take those first steps towards manifesting my dreams.
I have a list of dreams in my new planner and in thinking about which one I want to explore, I find myself getting really excited when I think about a retreat with some of the women I've connected with online. My Unravellers 365 group has discussed a retreat/get together and I want to be part of making that happen in the coming year. I also have dreamed about attending Squam in the Fall and am especially eager to go this year as the lovely Susannah will be teaching there for the first time. (And YIKES! The Fall 2010 schedule has been posted and registration opens February 1 which means I have to act on this soon!)
In essence, these dreams are about connection. I want to explore these new friendships and strengthen the bonds that have brought us together. I want to make new connections, as they generally bring with them energy, inspiration and creative resources. Both these dreams involve travel, which I've always loved but now am more hesitant to undertake because of Cowgirl. And Moosie. But I know when I journey away from home, it is to fill myself with new ideas and travel is a way I replenish my spirit. I return home better able to share myself with my family. And these trips would strengthen the network that supports me as I work to spin my dreams into reality.
So I'm getting my calendar out and inking in some dates ...
