I soon found there was lots more to this than I’d envisaged
When I was starting LivingNow magazine in Australia I was given so much help. I was a ‘babe in the woods’ when it came to publishing. I thought because I could type, talk on the phone, and write, that was all that was necessary. I soon found that was not so. Thankfully, for the first few years, I was given a dream each night with answers to the problems I’d had that day or that I was about to face. It was like having a business mentor who guided me each night.
Here are a few paras about my dream help at the very beginning.
For the first few months of 1989, I was busy preparing things in readiness to publish the magazine. All the while, I had dreams to tell me things to do, and it soon appeared that, when my dreams were showing me as pregnant, they were actually talking of the expected delivery of the magazine. Then I birthed the baby, and then he was a toddler (but this was in the dream state and before the magazine actually eventuated — so it was then telling me things that needed to be done in readiness to nurture the baby).
One night the dream I had showed me in the bathroom of a small airport cleaning the face of the toddler, preparing for the take-off. Then I heard the plane beginning to taxi down the tarmac – so I ran out, dragging the toddler with me. As can only happen in dreams, the pilot stopped, threw down the steps, and we were able to board. The meaning I got from that was that I’d spent too long on preparations and needed to get the magazine airborne.
