My story starts here…

"You are not alone, nor will you ever be."

By Ashley Dixon | Spirituality in Business

I had a dream last night….
here’s your warning… this is going to get personal.

I’ve been in a state of confusion, overwhelm and honestly – I’ve been doubting myself a lot and even letting myself feel like a failure at times.

I have a really big dream in my heart and I’ve been feeling as if it is so big that it is impossible. Impossible because there is no way I can accomplish it all on my own.

My dream will allow me to help millions, yet the thought of it actually happening is shattered every time the idea comes to my mind. The thought of all the hard work it will take to pull it off exhausts me and scares me that history will repeat itself and I will burn out again.

So, last night before I went to bed, just as I always do, I asked God to show me how. To show me the way, to make this dream a reality. And sure enough, as soon as I fell asleep and drifted off to dream land – He showed up!

In my dream, I was standing there, side by side with God.

He reached out and took me by the hand and said “First of all you are not alone, nor will you ever be.” We began to walk, it was dark. I couldn’t see a thing but I trusted Him and then all of the sudden I felt my feet in the sand, an ocean breeze on my face and as the water hit my toes the sun began to rise and the sound of the waves began to roll in.

God said to me “You have no idea how we got here, but here we are – your happy place.” He didn’t need to explain, I completely understood what His powerful words meant.

He squeezed my hand tighter and said “For every wave you see, there is a person that needs you to show them…” and He disappeared.

Though I could not see Him, I knew He was right there with me and as I began to really reflect on what His words meant – I began to cry.

How in the world could I have been so selfish?

There He was telling me, there are oceans filled with millions of waves. A world full of people, people who needed me to stand in my greatness so that I could help them stand in theirs. And even though I had no idea how I would reach the ones who needed me, I knew that all I needed to do was hold hands with God and He would show me the way. Just as He did in my dream. I just need to stay focused, listen to Him and continue to take the next step. Without a doubt – I know He is leading me to my happy place!

What I didn’t tell you is that just the day before, I had written this down in my journal: my happy placemy happy placemy happy place
I know, goosebumps right? Isn’t it amazing?

Oh! And my favorite song, that  I listen to on a daily basis is:my happy place

And if you have been following me for a while then you’ve probably heard me talk about how important the impact you have on the people you come into contact with is. I tell my clients, their impact on others sends ripple effects out into the world just as a pebble creates little waves when thrown into the water.

I could go on and on about how this dream coincided with so much going on in my life.
Many things most would just call coincidences… I call them clues that I’m on the exact path God laid out for me!

I wanted to share my story with you because I want you to know you are not alone!  

God is always leaving clues about what is to come for you. Stay focused on that burning desire in your heart! It’s your calling!

God has big plans for you! He needs you to listen and take action so He can lead you to become the person He designed you to be! To complete your mission of fulfilling the calling He placed deep within your heart!
