- “Sad not to be getting any more of your e-mails. I am still working on my mini album and will let you know when I post on my blog. Just wanted to let you know that I learned a lot of new techniques from your course. I don’t like to sew, so I adapted those parts and did with paper instead. Also, I feel like I now have an organized plan for my dream which is one of the most difficult parts to do. Sometimes you just don’t know how to actually begin to do something. Putting it down on paper helped me a lot.”
- “It was wonderful and I recommend it to EVERYONE! You are fantastic … always quick with a kind word … and help! Thanks so much!”
- “Today I was looking through my childhood memories when my 12 year old daughter joined me. It was so nice to share these memories and my dreams with her. A wonderful side effect of the workshop!”
One semester I took a course on the human mind. The professor was a clinical psychologist and the purpose of this class was to give us a glimpse into the mind of potential witnesses. I’ll let you know it was not my strongest subject… I excelled at taxation and business law. Please do not hold that against me… However, it was one of the more interesting courses I took (Along with modern physics and forensic medicine 101).
One of the more fascinating facts I have learned in that class is that the human memory is quite flimsy. A person can paint a picture of something that has never happened in his head, yet if the picture is detailed and vivid enough, this person will be able to embed it into his memory and won’t be able to tell the difference between this made up memory and an event he actually experienced. Scary, huh?
For this week’s journaling prompt I would like to play and write down a detailed memory which has never been… Play along with me – AT YOUR OWN RISK.
My fictional memory is:
It was 7pm. I had just come back home. All day long my belly had been tossing and turning ever since I had heard about their absence. I was sitting in the porch with my mother and her friend when I heard: “They’re back. They got dehydrated and lost their way – but they are back now”. I was filled with joy and the knot in my belly had finally untied. They were found. They are alive!

The imagination of children is highly developed. It actually seems to degenerate as we grow older… For that reason, childhood dreams tend to be grand and out of this world. We feel that everything is possible if we just want it strongly enough.
childhood dreams can involve figments of our imagination as well as feasible goals and aspirations. So were my childhood dreams. I had so many of them. I can hardly remember most of them, but I do recall a few. Some has actually come true and some not. It is fabulous to go through them and find out which actually came to reality.
For this week’s journaling prompt set aside a few moments and try to remember what were your childhood dreams. Write a list of every dream you manage to call to mind and make a note about the ones that actually came true.
The layout above showcases my childhood dreams. The picture was taken at the kindergarten in the summer of 1984… The journaling reads:
I had so many dreams… having a puppy, a pony, finding a fairy, catching the rainbow, getting new stickers, stumbling upon a mountain of ice-cream, getting chocolate milk straight from the tap, getting married, being a nurse, a fashion designer, a lawyer… Some came true. Some not.

Guided writing is a great way to explore the boundaries of your imagination and the depth of your thoughts. With guided writing you know where are you starting from but have no idea where are you going to end up…
I really love this type of writing exercises and no matter how the end result looks like, I am always happy because of the process.
This week’s journaling prompt is going to be slightly different. This week, I want you to complete the sentence: “The key to the kingdom of my dreams is…”
You can take this sentence anywhere.
Go fiction -
Describe: Where is it? What is it? How does it look like? How can one find it? What does one have to go through while searching for it? Is it easy to find or is it dangerous and weary? go with the flow.
Go non-fiction -
Engage in some healing journaling. Where do you see the key to the kingdom of your dream? Is there a ‘fix-it-all’ solution? Is there one thing in which you trust and to which you aspire? How is it going to help you in fulfilling your dreams?
The key to the kingdom of my dreams is… hidden in a secret crevice inside the wall, just below the window’s pane. You can trace the exact spot by following the first ray of light during the winter’s solstice. After finding the key you must gently lean it against your left ear and listen to it whispering the directions to the lock it opens. Follow your heart and you shall not fail in finding the secluded hiding place from which you can enter the kingdom of my dream.
(what, where) is the key to the kingdom of your dreams?
How do you feel about guided writing?
Where does your heart and/or mind takes you – fiction or non-fiction?

As a small child I was very keen on trying each wish-fulfilling-generator I had heard about.
I was wishing upon the falling stars.
I was on an everlasting pursuit after an ancient lamp to rub a genie out of.
I had sought the magical typewriter, which every time you type ‘I wish..’ on it – your wish comes true.
I was constantly perfecting my answer to the fairy who would grant me three wishes.
… and so on and so forth.
Once I had read in a children’s book that each person is granted with one wish, but no one knows when his time of fortune would arrive. In this book the reader is warned not to waste his time of fortune on benign things like guessing which bus would get to the station next. This warning had had a very strong impression on me, so for the next month I was constantly wishing the most magnificent of things. Among which I wished there would be no hungry children in Africa (at that time it was the number one reasoning for me to polish up my plate). I wished I would find a long lost treasure. I wished I would have all the colors in the world to paint with. You’ve got the picture.
As the years are passing by, my belief in miracles and wish granting genies is weakening … (I dare not say ‘vanishing’ as the wish-fairy might hear that). Nevertheless, I still have many secret wishes in my pocket. I am differentiating a ‘wish’ from a ‘goal’ by their likelihood to get fulfilled. The former is less likely to materialise than the latter.
For this week’s prompt I would like you to go back to the time where you strongly believed in miracles (you might not go back that much…) and to write down your three** most wonderful and splendid wishes. Remember, your wishes don’t have to be feasible !!!
**If your genie grants more than 3 wishes, go ahead and splurge.
