I believe that dreams come true. You can manifest your thoughts into reality. I know because it happened to me.
In my first book, Epiphany Rise – No More Secrets, there is a chapter entitled, ‘Lucid dreams.” It tells the story of me flying high in the sky with several other people, and we land on an isolated island far away. I was only about seven years old at the time. The Island had the whitest sand and the bluest water I’ve ever seen. I never wanted to leave that place.
Fast forward: Long story short. Thirty-seven years later, I was sitting in Harpo studios as a guest when Ms. Oprah announced she was taking the entire studio audience with her to Australia. Yes, I am an Oprah admirer, a big fan of her success and an ultimate viewer.
The day finally arrived, and we were in the air. We landed on the other side of the world to what’s known as, down under. The next morning my group was on another plane. We didn’t know where we were headed. We landed on an Island called, Hamilton Island, one of many of the Whitsundays Islands, just off the coast of Queensland. Once we received our room key, we were instructed to be ready in 30 minutes. 45 minutes after our arrival on Hamilton Island, we were driven to the dock and boarded a ferry to take us to our evening destination. Although I was excited, I was also exhausted.
I’m not sure how long the ride was, but I believed it was about 45 minutes. We were traveling through one of the seven wonders of the world — the Great Barrier Reef. The feeling I had as we approached the isolated Island called Whitehaven Beach was inexplicable. I was in awe. Tears streamed down my face. A sudden feeling rushed over me, and I knew immediately that this was the place I dreamt about when I was a child. The Island’s sand sparkled like crystals, and it had the prettiest bluish-turquoise water I had ever seen in my life.
Once my feet felt the water underneath them, the little girl in me began to spin around with laughter and joy. My head flung back as my arms stretched out wide. Facing the heavens, hot salty tears cascaded down my cheeks. That was one of the best feel-good moments in my life. I got the courage to tap Ms. Oprah on her shoulder and shyly tell her, thank you. I had the worst ugly-cry ever! I said I dreamt this entire scene before. However, I didn’t know it would involve all of this and her. I told Oprah that this was a dream come true – Literally. She hugged me and said, “You deserved a hug.” I believe it was because I was ugly crying and she could hardly understand me. I can’t help but laugh about it now. It was one of those moments when you think to yourself – Did I do that? I mean my nose was running, my eyes were swollen, it was delightfully awful. To my point… Did I see my future when I was a child? Something magical happened that day… I was kissed by the Sun and given a beautiful gift.
