The other morning I was talking to my sister.
“What? You had a miscarriage? I didn’t even know you were pregnant!”
Then my eyes opened.
“What was THAT? Oh!! That had nothing to do with my sister!”
The dream was a symbol for the nightmare I had been living.
After selling my 17 year ergonomic business in 2008 I followed a calling. Over a period of years I created and offered a string of products and services and each time I began marketing them they flopped!
Every one of my project launches miscarried!
OMG. That really put things into perspective for me. I browsed my work and realized the massive amount of writing I completed. Sales pages. Optin pages. Thank you pages. Download pages. Video creation. Editing. Branding. Marketing messages. Social Media. Technical challenges. Family issues.
And then falling flat on my butt.
Doubt crept in and I lost momentum over and again. Sometimes I just wanted to give up. Does that sound familiar?
And then I realized the perfection of the entire experience.
I had been slowly dipping my toes in the water and building my confidence with each baby step and each success. One of my artist friends, Tara Dixon said “They are all baby steps.” … No truer words could be said about the process of bringing your dreams to life. We must keep going no matter what and eventually we will make great progress. The process of the work made me confront my deepest fears and beliefs so I could shift them.
The good news…
My art dream is beginning to bud. I love creating colorful art and I’m creating a new collection. I took my latest launch full term and we are almost midway through the course and my clients are experiencing transformations and I love serving them.
You see – a few years ago a coach told me to connect to my core gifts and that everything would spring forth from there. What gifts? What passions were at my core that I was not in touch with? These questions had me exploring who I am.
Was it easy? No! It was a slow and very painful process. I persevered on my own and eventually tapped a deeper understanding of myself and this changed EVERYTHING for me. Months later as I reflected on the previous couple of years I saw the processes I had been using on myself to heal and transform and own my artistic gifts.
I’m grateful for all the miscarried projects, birthing pains and successes. The lessons are now my teachings. I continue to do my inner work and transform my life as the unlimited being that I AM.

If your personal, magic genie entered your life today and said you would be granted a life living your biggest dream from childhood what would it be? Would you be ready to live your dream?
Go back to your youth and remember what you wished for. Your dream is your gift and it lit you up.
For me it was art.
And perhaps like me you did not have the opportunity to play in your gift at that time. That is because NOW is the time. We are living in a beautiful time to reclaim our gifts and live more happily then ever before.
I worked to discover myself over the past several years having no idea where it was going to take me. I was searching for my happiness even though I was not aware of it. I just kept doing my inner work to feel good more often and it worked!
And one of my other gifts is that I connect people to their Divine Gifts that have been hidden from view for decades. Now is the time in history to uncover those gifts, play and share with the world.
What is stopping you? When will you give yourself permission to connect to your gifts and live in your passion? Your gift is your ART. Yes, you are the artist of your life and you awake each day with a blank canvas. What is the art you are creating today? Everything is art. Look around. Look inside and tap into YOUR art!

Ha! Well the perfectionist that lives inside of me attempted one more Ringside Flower Mandala drawing! Still not the same but perfect anyway. We creatives can just let go and create without worrying about getting it right. It is all right and perfect in this very moment. Play!
I am drawing one of the mandalas in my coloring book called “Ringside Flower.” As you will see the process is totally creative and I found it impossible to make it look EXACTLY like the one I originally drew! Enjoy and let me know how this video helps you!! xoxoxo Wendy
Art opens the doors to your creativity, imagination and inspiration to solve your problems and I explain how! Let me know how this video moves you to create!
I am looking at a list of stories I am going to be writing about this month. Two years ago I started making a list of stories from my life and I felt stuck in some ways. Many story ideas were coming to me but most of them seemed to be from my adult years.
In the past few days since embarking on my 30 Day 30 Story adventure I have listed many stories from my childhood that are now speaking out to me. They want to be told.
And just now I am looking at them and see that they have several similar threads running through them. It is so cool to be realizing this now.
Here are some of the themes I am seeing:
- Going for it no matter how unreachable it seemed
- Taking action on my ideas even though I was ridiculed or not seemingly successful
- Getting yelled at my teachers (yeah me!) and being made fun of by students who could not see my uniqueness
- Standing out like a sore thumb and finding a way to fit in even if I was ignored anyway
- Having big desires at a young age
I am sure there are more threads and I can see how these all relate to my purpose!
Have you looked at the stories of your life and how they are all related to your purpose?

So here I sit on the edge of my seat … literally … and I am “listening.”
I’ve had inklings about my niche of “divine inspiration” for a while now. I launched a program in 2009 called “Birth Your Idea.” I was so scared about stepping into it that I did not market it for long. Then months later I had the idea of marketing a program called “Reconnecting to Your Genius” and through inspiration I created even more content.
But I never launched this program because I was too darned fearful. That was two programs guiding people to get in touch with their inspiration and creating and manifesting from that.
So my inspiration was guiding me to coach others how I do what I do this “thing” that I have always called my greatest gift and my biggest nemesis! For over two decades I have been saying this and it took this entire past year to accept it is time to share it with others!
I’ve been creating products … the physical “hold it in your hand” kind of products since the early nineties. I created an ergonomic product in 1992 to raise the computer monitor up to stop neck pain and a series of other products. It was 2003 when I first had the inspiration to write my ergonomics eBook and soon after began creating all kinds of audio products. And now a DVD and spiritual technologies. And art prints and t-shirts and more! It is PLAY for me!
I never really questioned this gift. I kept taking the logical actions to bring them to life when it was appropriate. My biggest challenge over the years was how to handle the CONSTANT flow of ideas to me. It happens time after time … while in the middle of one project the ideas start to flow about another one. So I have learned that I must capture this information as it is coming in otherwise it will just fly away!
At one point over 20 years ago it was so overwhelming to me that I asked the ideas to stop so that I could quiet my mind and they did. I did not know how to harness the energy of these ideas and it drove me nuts! A few years later they all came back and ever since I have been perfecting how I do what I do!
And it is not as if I can always just write the idea down real quick and be done with it. Sometimes it is an entire download and I just allow it to come in. That is how I have learned to honor my gift. It has taken me years and years … well decades … to learn how to discern what to work on.
There is not enough time in the day to take action on every idea that comes in. Many of my ideas are for others whether they have asked me for them or not and I only offer my ideas when I am guided to. So most often I just let it go. I have often joked about requiring a team to literally follow me around to record and organize all my notes and ideas and to take action on them as I have instructed.
When I have teams in place this discernment is even more important so the passion continues and we are productive and getting !
Over the years I have been told that I am always doing something new and exciting. I did not look at it that way. I was just doing my thing. Friends I have not seen in a while would want me to immediately fill them in. Just last year someone I knew over 20 years ago told me that he remembered this about me … and we did not even hang out … he was dating a friend!
That really made me think since I had been pondering the bigger picture for months. When I owned my ergonomic business it was obvious what my niche and purpose was. So that is when I started to take a closer look.
I hired Andrea Hess for a reading since that is one of her specialties. Almost immediately she told me that my niche is divine inspiration. Why was I was not surprised?!! Just I never thought about coaching others how to do this because it is so easy for me.
And that was the challenge all these months!! I kept asking myself “Who would want to hire me?” “Why would someone benefit from my coaching in this area.”
I did not necessarily actually ask these questions but these were the feelings, the sentiments I had. It has been very difficult to wrap my mind around this. As I began sharing with others they would say “You mean you can learn that” or “I wish I was inspired.”
It has taken a lot for me to get this far. It is a lot to step into sharing your gift with the world especially when the world could use a lot of divine inspiration. The fear that I have felt has been intense and at the same time difficult to put my hand on.
I did have the courage to develop a series last year called “Open to Divine Inspiration” and I loved creating it and presenting it.
And now I am so excited to announce that I am leading a 6 month coaching program starting in February called “Living in Divine Inspiration to Consciously Create Your Most Fulfilling Life with Passion, Joy and Ease.”
I chose a 6 month program to give everyone an opportunity to open and create. A lot can change in this amount of time. Just one inspiration and inspired action changes lives. This is how I have lived my life and where major portions of my income have come from in the last 20+ years.
And this can be learned. That is what “Living in Divine Inspiration” is all about. Look for an announcement for the free teleclasses I will be leading beginning next week. If you want to be on the list to attend this free teleclass series then register here –> http://www.wendygyoung.com.
