A day of celebration! or Dreams really DO come true!

Today marks the official publication date of River to Ocean: Living in the Flow of Wakefulness. My heart is full of gratitude for the journey it has been. I am also deeply thankful for the many people along the way who have contributed, and that being so, it is a day of celebration for all of us. My greatest hope is that River to Ocean inspires wakefulness and conscious living for all it reaches. Beyond the book itself, I hope that in sharing a few words about the manifestation of my dream in the form of publishing my work, I hope you are inspired to follow, diligently and wholeheartedly, your dreams, whatever that is for you. In saying yes to this idea over 8 years ago, I can now truly appreciate how each part of the process was necessary and at times, required patience, trust and perseverance. Having arrived on the other side, so to speak, I can tell you that it is very much worth it. Most of the time, I just kept one foot ahead of the other, and trusted the process and my intuition that this was an important if not essential part of my life’s journey. As I say in River to Ocean, your intuition can serve as the river guide to the awakened life that is yours to claim. Your willingness to listen deeply to what your heart yearns for is part of that wakened life. As River to Ocean finds its way in the world, hopefully into many hands and hearts, may it encourage you to launch a dream or two, perhaps one that has been waiting for you to say “Yes!”.
