Don't abandon your childhood dreams, no matter how improbable they may seem. They contain within them a seed of your soul memories.
Some of my earliest childhood memories involve mermaids. When adults asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I mainly answered, "A mermaid!", although sometimes I would change it up by saying, "A siren". I loved being in the water, so much so my family likened me to a fish. As a kid I would spend hours in the ocean or sitting at the bottom of a pool. I truly believed I could breathe underwater and communicate with whales and dolphins. I found such peace being immersed in water. Being a mermaid was as real a goal to me as any other. That is why I crushed to discover that humans didn't actually believe in merpeople. The mermaid, like the unicorn and other magical beings, was relegated to the domain of fairy tales. My connection with the mystical mer realm diminished with time until I had all but forgotten my 'childish' whim.
Many years later, I was visited by angels, and they directed me to Doreen Virtue's Angel Therapy online show. I quickly discovered, to my utter delight, that Doreen was a fellow mermaid at heart. At this time, old memories began to surface of previous incarnations as a mermaid. I went on to work with angels of all realms, including the beautiful sea angels called mermaids.
I was thrilled to discover than my mermaid career goal was indeed realistic. That is why I happily share my mermaid story with my clients as a way of demonstrating to them that magic is real, and that our childhood memories, no matter how improbable, hold the key to our life's purpose.
