Your Gateway into your Sixth Decade and beyond is all about moving into a greater sense of your own self.
What better way to do this than to open up to your imagination and your dreams?
The shamans from the indigenous cultures say, when asked to cure a member of the community of their ills: “When did you stop dreaming? When was the last time you sang or danced? When did you last hear or tell a story?" For they know that when we stop dreaming, singing, dancing, hearing or sharing stories, in other words having fun, well, we’ve stopped truly living. We've restricted our freedom, shut down our heart and mind to anything other than day by day routine.
we may be restricted in our actions even in speech however our freedom to think and imagine are
Seeing the Spaces In-Between and Living Outside of Time.
My life – my reality, my take on the world – really has all the answers, and yours does too. But this 24/7 world demands my time......but wait, hey, no it doesn't. I have all the time in the world!
Well, we do don't we? We have stepped off the merry-go-round. We may have been pushed or eagerly jumped. Perhaps we needed help to make that all important step or, like many were exhausted, with a step by step plan for the last twelve months in our careers.
You know, in our everyday reality, during our fourth and fifth decade of life, sometimes we simply cannot see what is going on, really going on, because we are so often busy doing, busy juggling, just busy living.
It is now, as we move through the Gateway into our Sixties and beyond we have the time and can look for the shapes in-between the trees.
And what do we find?
Time has spaces in between, a minute can be a long time, an hour can go so quickly.
There are spaces in between conversations, we call them pauses, so much is said in those pauses.
The spaces in between waiting for a flight, a train journey, a dental appointment. So-called empty spaces.
Now's the very time to reflect upon dreams from childhood.
Have you achieved them? What might serve you well right now? You really are the pattern maker and breaker of your own existence you know. Whatever your age!
When you do, you'll meet the playful and lighthearted parts of you. And they'll reawaken your own innate wisdom for joy, peace and healing.

Enjoy imagining yourself in something you've never imagined or thought about yourself before! How does it feel? Does it light your fire? Your passion? We need passion it keeps us young and vital.
Meet with your intuitive Self, your imagination and your insight, experience an alignment between heart and mind. It's your access to mindfulness and your inner world where an unlimited source of happiness, joy and vitality awaits.
I can make choices: I can take back my thoughts, my mind, my feelings. I just need to learn to trust in my reality and not be driven by others.
So what can I do?
I can trust the shapes in-between. Trust in being, in giving myself the space and time for reflection. Understand that reflection inside my own mind guarantees greater clarity, peace and joy. I will truly see the spaces in-between."
What will happen when I do this?
You'll experience how you can rest, release, repair, reset and recharge at will and
