The Grief and trauma felt as a widow, has a way of dimming the smallest or greatest of dreams you ever held as a child.

Working with a Coach to explore this mystery will help you recollect hidden memories. Or sometimes some event or deeper inclination will bring these back to the forefront of your mind. This enables you to find a purpose for joy and hope after your loss.

I’m here to encourage you that when you are feeling stronger, and more person centred those dulled dreams will resurface.

A Divine/special dream you have could be so impactful, for many generations after you.

That’s why getting started can initially be quite vague and tedious.

Have you ever felt that you might even be aware of the dreams you have for your life, but you sometimes conceal them, not sharing with people closest to you, as you fear they are too huge to be fulfilled by yourself.

Factors that hinder your ‘Divine/Specific Dream:

  1. Fear of Failure: The fear of failing can be a significant barrier for you. The thought of failing to achieve that dream can be overwhelming and it might discourage you from even trying.
  2. Lack of Self-Confidence: You may doubt your abilities and believe you are not capable of achieving this dream. This lack of self-confidence can hold you back from taking the necessary steps to pursue your aspirations.
  3. Financial Constraints: Pursuing certain dreams may require a significant financial investment. If you lack the financial means or stability, you might find it challenging to take the risk and invest in your dream.
  4. Lack of Support: Having a strong support system, such as family, friends, or mentors, can play a crucial role in pursuing your dreams. Without encouragement and understanding, you may feel isolated and less motivated to follow through.
  5. Family or Social Expectations: Sometimes, family, or societal expectations can clash with your individual dreams. Pressure to follow a more traditional or practical path can lead you to abandon your dream in favour of meeting external expectations.
  • Health Issues: Physical or mental health problems can impede your ability to pursue certain dreams, especially if the dream requires physical stamina or emotional well-being.
  • Time Constraints: Some dreams may demand a significant amount of time and dedication. If you already have substantial responsibilities, such as a demanding job or family obligations, you may find it challenging to allocate enough time to their dream.
  • Lack of Knowledge or Skills: If you feel you lack the necessary knowledge or skills to pursue your dream, you might hesitate to start or might believe you are not qualified to succeed.
  • Unrealistic Goals: Setting unrealistic or overly ambitious goals can be discouraging. If your dream seems unattainable, you may abandon it due to the perceived impossibility of achieving it.
  • External Circumstances: Sometimes, life circumstances beyond one’s control, personal loss, such as economic downturns, political instability, or natural disasters, can interfere with pursuing certain dreams.
  • Changing Priorities: As you grow and evolve, your priorities and interests may shift. A dream that once seemed important might lose its appeal over time.
