Pregnant With A Dream: Meeting Lisa Nichols
Are YOU Pregnant With a Dream? Now, I don’t mean a baby – but rather a dream that you KNOW you are meant to bring to life, to birth something that *if you don’t* you’ll always wonder what could have been…
In the words of Marianne Williamson “Each of us is pregnant with a better version of ourselves.”
So true. I know first-hand what it feels like to have dreams that scare the bejesus out of me, and to simultaneously know that I *MUST* bring them to life, despite my sometimes overwhelming fear. That’s why I wrote the book, Are You Pregnant With a Dream?
As life coach and founder of Create Your Life!, I know what it takes to go from Fear to Freedom, and I have coached hundreds, soon to be thousands, on the magic and momentum that takes hold when my 9-step Dream Acceleration(TM) Process gets activated.
In September 2013, after watching a YouTube video of Ms. Lisa Nichols speaking (she was in the movie The Secret, a Chicken Soup for the Soul author, founder of Motivating the Masses, and so much more…) a dream was activated in me: I wanted to meet her. Not in a celebrity-crazed-kind-of-way. But in a … this-woman-is-powerful-and-the-real-deal-and-I-feel-absolutely-compelled-to-do-whatever-I need-to-to-meet-and-talk-to-her kind of way. And, proof to the power of a dream-in-action, just two short months later, it happened!
Here are some “selfies” that Lisa Nichols and I took after a little heart-to-heart.

And here’s one of her working her magic on stage:
A quick aside about that second photo of us standing in front of the Lisa Nichols poster:
I noticed that, in the poster, she has braces on her teeth – and I asked her about it. Now, really, do you think she could have had that photoshopped out before blowing it up into a great big stand-on-it’s-own poster? Shoot. Let’s be honest … I would’ve!
Of course she could have! BUT – she had braces when the photo was taken, so that’s what’s in the picture. How’s THAT for a little window into how *REAL* this woman is. 🙂
It was a true honor and a privilege to not only meet her, but even more … after our off-stage connection, there was a moment (during the height of her guiding the room through a mind-blowing belief transformation process), that I SAW her. And – she saw me see her.
People were shouting and crying and doing all kinds of wild, free and full self-expression … an experience that left every person in that room forever changed …
She did what only the best speakers do: she got herself out of the way. And in that moment, I SAW HER, with tears in her eyes, as the room was divided into our small groups doing the exercise she had given us to do. She and I locked eyes. It’s was a pregnant pause. Beautiful beyond words. One that I will never forget it.
Thank you, Lisa Nichols. Thank you Universe of Possibility. It’s good to be alive. It’s not always easy – but it’s so so good… We are absolutely in this together.
So, again, may I ask … Are YOU Pregnant With a Dream?
May your dreams always inspire more than they intimidate.
Love and blessings,
