About Dawnie Dahir
Like a breath of fresh air, by walking outside my energy naturally rises to where I feel a connection to nature. It is where I go for inspiration when I have a question or problem that I am dealing with. I have learned to clearly ask a question, go outside, take my mind off of the question/ problem and notice the beauty of nature around me. Along my walk I receive the answer through what I call Whispers. They come in many forms, such as a mental picture in my mind’s eye, or a feeling of joy in my heart. Whispers from the Divine can also show up as great ideas, or a knowing of information that seems to come out of the blue. I’ve learned to follow my Whispers, to follow the guidance that shows me the path to my happiness and my life’s purpose.
