What is Your Dream?

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivering his I Have a Dream Speech at the Civil Rights March on Washington, D.C. 08/28/1963



When thinking about Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, what part of his message do you take to heart? His speech was originally titled, "Normalcy, Never Again". (The first draft did not include the words, I have a dream.)


Are you happy with your Normal? If not, what do you dream about changing?


Dr. King went off script at the end of his speech when gospel singer Mahalia Jackson shouted out "Tell them about the dream, Martin!" That's when Dr. King went into preaching mode with the words "I have a dream" being used to make his points.


What would have to happen or be said to you - to shake you out of automatic pilot and take you into a place of greatness?


It doesn't have to take a catastrophic event, but often the act of being tossed into a world of turmoil - where the ground's been ripped out from under your feet is a very powerful motivator to build yourself a more authentic life. One where you can operate from your true internal compass and be aligned with your own Divine Connection or Source and be at Peace.


Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and exhale slowly...remember you are truly never alone.


Seeing yourself at one with all that is good in the Universe can relieve and calm inner stress. Align and surround yourself with people who support you for who you are and who support the dreams that you hold for your life.


Appreciate the gifts in this Life experience. Recognize and embrace your own unique Spirit. Practice extreme self-care in order to not only help yourself, but to help others.


Acknowledge your own strengths and every one else's special gifts. Encourage peace in your world through the way you live your life and bless others.


Change may be inevitable, but your reaction to change is controlled only by you. With each shift or change in your life, it is an opportunity to move forward and expand.
