|Showing Nicole a good time in our favourite local pub!|
My friend Nicole decided that 2011 was her year.
2011 was the year she was going to do something about her big dreams; dreams she had had for more than 20 years. After careful thought she distilled it down to four major things: to visit all 50 states of the US; to travel to Greece; to find her soul mate; and to find her soul job.
It's only September and Nicole has now done two of those four! That's an excellent year's progress in my opinion :)
But more importantly, Nicole also decided that this was the year that if any of those four dreams didn't come about for one reason or another, she would begin the process of letting them go, and be ok with letting them go, so she has room for new dreams to come into her life. She has realised that perhaps those two dreams she has achieved so far in 2011 had to happen first before the next two are ready to fully ripen. Either way, she is open to the possibilities of whatever comes next, as there are always more goals to achieve and more dreams to dream.
We had many wonderful conversations about manifesting, and how wonderful it is when you are on the doorstep of making dreams come true. We were having a chat very late on Nicole's last night in London, after a lovely dinner party with three quarters of the Antipodean Lady Mafia (and the boys), with a glass of wine close at hand, and suddenly Tom, having observed the two of us chatting, said "you should be recording this."
And so we did!
Please bear in mind that there was wine, lots of excitement and sleep deprivation involved in the making of this podcast. I also say the "s" word at some point.
Bear in mind also, as Johan Hari said this week, that an interview is not an x-ray of a person's finest thoughts, it is merely a record of an encounter.
So, with that disclaimer out of the way (!), I hope you enjoy hearing what we have to say. Hopefully you will feel like you were right there with us.
And Nicole is now in Greece, on her fabulous tour of the senses, living it up. I hope she is revelling in every joyful, juicy moment of it.
How have you made / are you making your dreams come true?
