Have you ever said something was only a dream, only a coincidence, or only your imagination? In this book you’ll discover that these “only” things can be keys to finding and living your bigger story. You’ll learn to tap into the nine powers of dreaming, the nine rules of coincidence, and the seven uses of imagination. You’ll be inspired by stories of how innovators and world changers have used these gifts, and you’ll learn wonderful games to help you access your intuition, heal yourself, and bring juice to your everyday life. When we claim the power of the Three Only Things, we reclaim tools that are profoundly simple yet have the power to remake our lives and the world.
