Making your dreams come true is one of the greatest joys in life. It’s also a key focus of holistic/spiritual life coaching. We’re all here to live fully – to feel alive, expansive, and engaged in creating a bright future.
This is what we call the “Heart of Success.” It makes pursuing your heartfelt dreams and goals an important priority and “Ground Rules” play a critical role.

The 5 Steps for Making Your Dreams Come True with Spiritual Life Coaching
1. Get clear on what you really want.
Studies show that people who write down their dreams and goals achieve far greater success than those who just think about them. Only 5% do this, which means the vast majority are missing out in an important key to success.
On the other side of the equation, bemoaning what’s not happening usually makes things worse. We’ve confirmed this many times. Just thinking about your heart’s desires often feels vague and confusing. It may even feel impossible and if you think it’s impossible, it probably is.
By contrast, putting your heartfelt dreams in writing is clarifying. Try it. It’s the first step to making your dreams feel real. And when your dreams feel real, they have the potential to become a reality.
We wrote down our heartfelt dreams and goals years ago and we’re glad we did. To our surprise, they started to come true. Overtime, with a lot of trial and error, the results exceeded our expectations.
We were so excited about what we had learned that we started to teach students in our holistic coaching and healing courses how they could do this, too.
The puzzle pieces of how to make dreams come true were falling into place. Still, we felt like something was missing.
This is where our concept of Ground Rules entered the picture. In retrospect we realized that writing down some Ground Rules may be even more important than writing down your dreams, but first you have to make a shift.
2. Open to the mystical realms of spirit.
Clear thinking opens you to new possibilities, because it awakens your creative mind. This connects you with mystical forces that can open doors and guide you every step of the way.
When you focus on realizing your heartfelt dreams, you’re opening to the mystical realms of spirit. This changes everything. You’re entering a new reality where miracles happen and dreams can come true.
A mystical idea you may have heard before is that life is like a game and you make up the rules. You could say this is true because the human mind and spirit have the power to create. As personal development pioneer Eric Nightingale advised,
“You get what you think about most of the time.”
This means your outer world mirrors your inner world. People who believe in themselves and their possibilities tend to make their dreams come true.
3. Lighten up and enjoy life.
The reason to treat life like a game is that games aren’t so serious. We play games because they’re enjoyable. Playfulness also creates a state of flow. What if your life could feel lighter and more joyful? This may be a big step in making your dreams come true.
This is a key point. Notice how you feel when you consider the possibility that your life could be lighter, more joyful and even fun. To us, this feels good and energizing.
Reflecting on the “Game of Life,” questions arose for us, like “What is the purpose of this game?” and “How will I know if I’m winning?”
As mentioned, we’re here to live fully – to feel alive and engaged in creating a bright future – to tap into what we call the “heart of success.” This, then, is the purpose of the game.
But how will you know if you’re winning? When you clearly define your dreams and goals, you connect with your reason for being alive. This brings the desired outcome of the game into focus.
You’ll always know if you’re winning if you feel alive and believe you’re moving in the direction of your dreams. This brings us to the rules of the game.
4. Set some Ground Rules.
If life is a game and you make up the rules, what would you like to experience along the way? Do you want your life to flow in the direction of your dreams with joy and ease? Do you want to make it easy to win? Your Ground Rules can clarify these things and more …
We created the concept of Ground Rules for manifesting dreams to clarify our intentions and you can do this, too. These Ground Rules are like rules of the road on the journey through life. With joy and ease as one example, you can see that there is a broad range of possible ways to experience life. The obvious question is this: why not experience it in the most favorable ways?
Setting Ground Rules to Elevate Your Thinking
Ground rules provide an opportunity to bring some magic into your life. Visualize for a moment the reality you want to create where your dreams are coming true.
Imagine living in a reality where you are in the right place at the right time to live joyfully and realize your purpose in perfect time. Wouldn’t this be better than a reality where you seem to continually miss opportunities?
Imagine living in a reality where you can have positive, loving relationships. Wouldn’t this be better than feeling isolated and alone?
Imagine living in a reality where your dreams come true with the greatest possible ease. Wouldn’t this be better than having to struggle every day to “make things happen”?
This is truly the Heart of Success – living each day to the fullest. With a written set of Ground Rules, your life can change dramatically, but only with the addition of another critical key.
5. Match your thoughts and feelings with the intentions you set in your Ground Rules.
Once you have written your Ground Rules, your focus moves to matching your thinking to your intentions. This takes practice, so it’s both a challenge and an opportunity. Mahatma Gandhi offered this advise:
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
If you bemoan your fate and focus on what’s not going well in your life, you can’t expect life to flow with joy and ease. This is a critical point most people miss. Since your outer world mirrors your inner world, you have to focus on feeling good, and flowing with joy and ease now, if this is the kind of life you want to create.
Life is, of course, a journey, and none of us is perfect. Ground Rules provide an opportunity for growth. Shifting restrictive thoughts and feelings that might attract a reality that’s different from the one you intend to create supports this growth.
Remember, what you focus on, you create.
Tap into the Heart of Success and Make Your Dreams Come True
The 5 steps provided here can change lives. But if you really want to live to the fullest, this just touches the surface of what’s possible with spiritual life coaching.
From a spiritual perspective, it’s a miraculous journey. Unfortunately, you can be delayed and frustrated by numerous potholes, barriers, and detours if you don’t know the rules of the road.
There’s so much more to explore and so much more life to live.
If you’re curious about what might be possible for you, you’re in the right place. We’ve devoted three decades to exploring ways to tap into the heart of success, make dreams come true, and live to the fullest. We started with our own lives, then as spiritual/holistic life coaches working with countless clients and students who have transformed their lives on this journey.
