I like to say, dreams are actually our inner psychic knowing what is to come to us. Things we feel called to, from our heart. How do we know what is coming from our hearts and what is coming from our ego? Get clear about it by reading my What’s the Difference Between Sacrifice and Compromise? Vlog post. Our head has wants; our heart has desires.
When we are not listening to our heart or we are not pursuing the things we love, a part of us may start engaging in self-sabotaging behavior. It's important to not have the soul sucked out of us. Feed your soul and do things to fulfill your creativity and your passion. Don't let anything suck the soul out of you!

He is a seeker who appreciates consciousness above all else. The focus of the retreat is Love: Practice Makes the Master.
● What are your dreams? Are you giving yourself permission to pursue them?
● Have other people’s doubts or comments about your dreams prevented you from listening to your own inner guidance?
● Do you have a limiting belief that you are too old, too unqualified, or too poor to go after what you want?
● If you are in pursuit of a dream, are you actively and consistently taking steps toward it?

Daniel's Key Insights and Ahas:
