“There is a world all living creatures have dreamed of together ever since the Earth came to be.”
– Ilchi Lee, excerpted from the poem, Sedona Message


Winter gives us time to dream this dream in a quiet manner as we long for the coming spring. That is, if we can still our future pull for wildflowers and budding trees, and settle our mind into the here and now. With some quietude in winter, we discover the great gifts that dwell deep in our hearts.

In the remainder of the poem from his book, The Call of Sedona, Ilchi discusses the messages he has received from the land and from nature during his time in Sedona. He shares his dream that all of those who come to Sedona interact with the heart of the earth and become aware of the great spirit and strength within themselves.

Also from the poem:
“This dream is the reason why you have come to this place,
and it just might be your question and your answer.
This dream just might awaken the greatest things within you.”

Without the fanfare of the russet shades of fall and the brilliant colors of spring to distract us, winter stands on its own, offering a slow motion, and at times nearly black-and-white-photo version of our world, allowing us to ponder the details we might otherwise have missed.

There, in the greyed thicket peeking up through the snow, or over there, tucked beneath the old fallen tree darkened with melting ice, lies our “now” moment. There’s just enough to catch the eye and entice us to follow; into a thought . . . into the dream.

And remember, this dream just might awaken the greatest things within you!
