Every day I do readings for people who want help living the life they dream of. Part of the process is overcoming obstacles like negative thought patterns, lack of confidence, and fears. One of the common obstacles people face is figuring out how to live their dreams while also taking care of the people they love and their current commitments.
In this TrueYou TV episode, I’m sharing a message from my Spirit Guides about how following your dreams positively affects the people you love, and I’m sharing my recent experience of moving to Guanajuato, Mexico as an example. I hope this video helps you realize that following your dreams is the best thing you can do for yourself and everyone in your life.
There may be times when you receive criticism for following your dreams. It may seem at first that following your dreams isn’t best for the people you care about. If you are wanting to end a relationship, for example, your partner may not be enthusiastic about your decision, to say the least. However, I have seen in my life and in the lives of other people that every decision made in alignment with one person’s spirit has ultimately been in the highest good for all involved. If you know you’re not the right person for your partner, for example, then ending the relationship will allow you and your partner to find your ideal mates.
I was having a conversation with a new friend yesterday, and he was telling me about traveling the world for the past 9 years with his daughter, who I believe is 12 now. His daughter has lived in Malaysia, Mexico, Oregon, Australia, and various places in Europe. It struck me that some parents don’t move so their children can experience the stability of living in one place. However, he mentioned that his daughter speaks three languages now, is very thoughtful and wise, and has exposure to many different cultures and ways of living. By following what felt best for him, his daughter received the kind of education that can’t be learned from a textbook.
You are here to shine your light in the world. You are here to share your gifts and to experience your joy. Everything that brings you a true sense of joy and fulfillment ultimately benefits everyone. So instead of giving up your dreams, think about how they could benefit everyone you love. Give your dreams a chance. You have a desire to make a change in your life for a reason, so trust that whatever you desire can become your new reality.
Tidbits from our Guanajuato life this week:
We were invited to our landlord’s 62nd birthday party yesterday – our first party in Mexico! It was a blast, and our landlord makes 62 look like the new 30. We met many fascinating people who traveled all over the world before landing in Guanajuato, including a man who makes his own chocolate from scratch! I told him he’s my new best friend 🙂 One of the guests was a musician, and we became a jazz duo on the patio with me singing and him playing the guitar while the sun was setting. Relaxing, fun, full of laughter and friendship…the perfect birthday party.
My hubby Mark and I went hiking this weekend to La Bufa, which is a famous mountain in Guanajuato. It was lovely to have the view of the city far below. It was so quiet and peaceful high up above the city…just us, the occasional dog barking, and the couple having sex in the bushes (true story!!! with a camera!!! LOL)

Sending lots of love your way on your beautiful journey!
