Have you read the Reader's Digest article titled 'Dare to Dream: What happens in your head at night is more important than you think'? According to scientific research, our dreams communicate to our conscious mind what our subconscious mind is worried about (or not) thus helping us work through the day's emotional quandaries. Let me give you a few examples: 1) Several years ago, I met a woman that I wanted to be friends with, but in my waking life I wasn't sure I could trust her. That is, until I dreamt about two different people (one man, one woman) in my distant past whom I couldn't trust. When I juxtaposed how I felt when I interacted with this woman vs. the other two individuals, my subconscious was telling me I could absolutely trust her.

We don't get our dreams done on our own. We weren't meant to. Which is why we need 'dare to dream' teams. Like my 'dare to dream' creative team. For instance, Brandon Jameson designed the logo and banner for 'dare to dream', for Know Your Neighbor AND my personal stationery. Brandon's design work visually captures what I hope to convey in words....As I analyze the dynamic of my relationship with this creative 'dream team', there seem to be some broadly applicable observations: 1) Start with short-term projects...

The Myth of Psyche

According to psychologists Jean Shinoda Bolen and Robert Johnson, there are very few stories that describe the psychology of feminine, rather than masculine, development. The myth of Psyche is one of them. To become who she is – to accomplish all that she is meant to – Psyche needs to not only love and nurture and care and connect, she also must learn to sort through and prioritize her possibilities, to obtain power without selling her soul, keep her eyes on her prize, and say no.
