Most people wait for that "perfect" moment to begin living for their dreams—a financial windfall, retirement, or perhaps a move to a new city—but sadly, that perfect time often never comes. Create Your Dream Life Now is a practical, but visually delightful illustrated workbook that encourages people to start living dream-filled lives now.
By incorporating powerful workbook exercises, guided meditations, and nine key wisdom tools, the book teaches readers how to dramatically transform the landscape of their lives in just twenty minutes a day. The deeply transformational content of Create Your Dream Life Now is offered in a simple, fun, and inspirational way that makes an ideal gift book.
Create Your Dream Life Now represents a midpoint between a visual poem and a detailed yet reader-friendly functional guide and workbook to spiritual practice. It stands out from other manifestation books by marbling practical exercises, interactive meditations, and spiritual reflection into the subject matter. The work of acclaimed artist Joan Coleman fills the pages of this four-color book, which includes sections on: Who You Are; Desire; Create Your Dream Life Now Meditations; Gratitude for the Now; Gratitude for the Future; Affirmative Prayer; Creative Visualization; Mindfulness Meditation; The 9 Keys to Creating Your Dream Life; Action; Synchronicity; Alignment; Faith; Wisdom; Prayer; Love & Service; Gratitude; Healing; Dream Week Living; and Dream Week Journal Pages.
