If you fall, you have wings…

I come to, realizing I’m standing atop a tall tower. It isn’t solid, but instead made of wooden girders that allow me to peer down to the ground, many feet below. I try to walk forward but halt as a strong fear arises inside me. I take a deep breath and look over the edge, then wished I hadn’t. I have no idea why I am up there or how to get down safely. The fear is paralyzing.

Suddenly, I feel compelled to close my eyes — which makes no sense in my current circumstance, yet I follow my knowing. Behind my eyelids, an old familiar memory movie begins to play. I was seven and was traveling inter-dimensionally to meet a group of energy beings. Filled with light and rainbows, they welcomed me to the training ground.

I received a pair of energy wings, gently attached between my shoulder blades. They told me, all you have to do is think where you wish to go, and you’ll immediately be there.

Sounds simple enough, right?

Think and be there?

Could it be that easy?

With practice, I became masterful in the art of energy projection. Immersed myself in the belief that thoughts become things. I took to this like a bird catching updrafts from the trade winds. A bit shaky at first but growing in confidence as I experimented with the art of manifestation.

My mind reflects upon my mastery as I open my eyes once again atop the tower.

And then I receive the message, ‘If you fall, you have wings.’


Even if I were to slip and tumble over the edge, I could quickly gather my wits and redirect my trajectory. The laws of physics are bendable. It’s not inevitable to end up at the bottom — I get to choose. What a lovely lucid dream.

Sometimes, you find yourself climbing to great heights. Perhaps you worry about the responsibility or are nervous about living up to expectations. The tower upon which you stand feels unstable, failure is always one step away.

However, you have options.

You can envision the tower becoming solid. You can fly to another tower that’s more suitable. Or you can choose to land lightly on the ground, putting your feet on the Earth.

None of these options includes a long and painful plummet. The time for that type of drama has passed.

You know who you are, you know what you need to be healthy, fulfilled and living in alignment. Even if you can’t see the full picture, your soul understands what’s next.

First and foremost, you need to flex your manifestation wings. Yes, you have them too, perhaps in a slightly different form than mine.

Think and go there.

Imagine and make it reality.

Take time to dream, then act on your heart’s desires.

How relieving to know if you fall, you have wings…
