Dreams, Intuition and Synchronicity

My dreams have become my greatest teacher in this life. Inspiring new desires of my physical being, quenching my thirst for knowledge and growth while continually reminding me of my ever-present loving connection with Creation.

Over the past few years, I have been learning the wisdom of dreams and how to utilize them in my physical life. Seven years ago, I went through some deep disappointments that popped the bubble of who I thought I was and who I desired to be. In the period that followed, my physical being was depressed. Little did I know, this “deep-rest” would open a doorway into my inner being, leading to great expansion and deep nourishment. I now recognize this as the greatest treasure I have ever known.

In this deep-rest state, seven years ago, I had little interest in physical reality. In losing my zest for life I would often withdraw into sleep, giving up the constraints of the physical reality for the ease of the dream world. I started to realize how much flow and freedom existed within. I began to experience vivid dreams bundled with fulfilling connective feelings. In waking life, the limitations of my physical conditions still felt all too limiting and overwhelming compared to the freedom I deeply desired and continued to realize in my dreams.

I tended to my physical reality minimally and took frequent naps finding respite and going deep within my inner consciousness. Gradually, I began to value my dream world beyond the rest and relief it offered, realizing it had an intelligent consciousness of its own. I began to record my dreams after waking, and over time, recalling dreams came as natural to me as remembering an outing with a friend. 

I learned to enjoy the depths of my consciousness, discovering new realities and bringing them back into my waking life. By remembering the dreams, the feelings and the symbols I began to decode my inner beliefs and see the threads of connection between the two worlds of waking and dreaming. When waking and working with my dream symbols, I noticed the dreams showed moments of the next day.

Many times, my dreams were as vivid and real as any physical event I could imagine, the colors and sounds orchestrated in such magnificent beauty, equivalent to any vivacious party in the physical realm. These powerful feelings and sensations filled and enriched my being as I awoke into a form as valid and real as anything I have known in this life.

As the years continued, I began to emerge from this dream cave of solitude I had created, bringing the jewels I found from my inner consciousness into my physical, daytime consciousness.  I learned that different dreams serve different purposes…

[Right Speech] was incredibly valuable for my coaching skills, and for my life. There was so much applicable information presented in an embodied and pragmatic way. [Meg Hess, PCC, D. Min.] has an ability to evoke wisdom from everyone.

I very much appreciated and enjoyed the content of this class (The Dynamic Trio). I was using concepts and techniques Ann Marie shared with my clients the day after training. I loved, loved, loved the inclusion of mindfulness in the training and in the concepts. I strongly believe that psychology and spirituality are synergistic disciplines that Ann Marie weaves together masterfully.

I have never thought of myself a leader. The designation just didn’t resonate, and I thought this class [If Steve Jobs Were Your Coach: Leadership Skills to Thrive] might be an odd fit for me. This class helped me rethink what leadership means to me. I learned that leadership qualities are powerful everyday tools that I can call on to generate energy and shift perspective in any life circumstance! I came away from this course with an array of creative strategies and lenses to choose from, as I meet challenges in my own life and as I work with coaching clients facing their own challenges.

This school has changed my life in a incredibly positive way. MCS speaks to my soul, and I am more present with my clients, my partner, my children and in my life because of what I’ve learned at MCS.

Kristin’s dynamic teaching style made this class fun and exciting and got my creative juices flowing. I was surprised at how much I learned about what I needed, and didn’t need to move forward in launching my coaching business. I also gained more clarity on how I want to deliver my message of what I do. Read more

Right Speech is a critical prerequisite to helping all conversations in life unfold with clarity and understanding. I wish something like this were taught to all students in our early K-12. Just imagine how the world would improve!
