Shapeshift Your World from the Inside Out
In “Dream Big: The Universe is Listening,” international bestselling author, seminar leader and dolphin whisperer Ilona Selke empowers people to use their imagination to create personal and global change
Ilona Selke has written four books, produced 25 music and meditation CDs and coauthored two books, one with Brian Tracy and one with Jack Canfield.
Consciousness ResearchFrom Stephen Hawking’s theories on time travel to recent study of performance in athletes when they envision and experience their success prior to achieving it physically, the idea of affecting outcomes that exist outside of the current moment has begun to inch its way into mainstream consciousness. But how do we take it from theory into practice? How can the everyday person who is not a scientist or a professional athlete hone their ability to create a better future for themselves and the world?
International bestselling author, seminar leader, lecturer, musician and dolphin whisperer Ilona Selke is opening the door for people of all ages and experience levels to begin the practice of self-betterment and global stewardship through her new book, “Dream Big: The Universe Is Listening,” available now in print and all e-book formats.
Stop. Look. Choose.In “Dream Big,” Ilona offers readers profound yet simple advice to take charge of their own healing and life outcomes: stop, look and choose. Through engaging real-life stories of transformative experiences combined with inspirational guidance, she invites all to consider the nature of the universe from a new perspective. “Dream Big” provides concrete practices to support people in setting and achieving goals while transmuting whatever may be blocking them into healthier, more joyful energies.
“These techniques are easy to follow and easy to recall,” Ilona says. “Just remember three words: stop, look, choose. Stay with this practice for days, weeks, months, years and watch your world transform.”
Expanding Our WorldviewUltimately, Ilona is inviting all of us to expand our way of seeing the universe. She calls it, “a little step up from what our current mainstream understanding is.”
For example, the greatest scientific minds of our planet believed for millennia that Earth was flat. It wasn’t until new research—and openness to that research—entered the equation that we discovered Earth is spherical. In the spirit of current scientific theorization about a fourth dimension in which the laws of time and space do not apply as we typically experience them, Ilona asserts that we can consciously choose to interact with space-time and affect outcomes in our lives. Making this global shift in consciousness, she says, is the key to our global transformation.
Experiential Learning for All AgesIn addition to “Dream Big,” Ilona offers a full spectrum of accessible, joy-infused tools for people to explore. These include her Living from Vision online self-study course and app, Living from Vision coaching certifications, in-person seminars at her Shambala Oceanside Retreat Center, one-on-one sessions, guided meditations and yoga via CD and app, music CDs and other published works.
Even young children can benefit from learning to “dream big,” harness their personal power and believe in the possibility of magic in life thanks to Ilona’s inspiring book and accompanying app for kids and adults, “Alin Learns to Use His Imagination.”
The Dolphin ConnectionIlona Selke's first name means “radiant” and her family name can be traced to the Celtic myth about selkies: sea-dwelling mammals, such as a seal or dolphin, capable of shapeshifting into a human. In one legend, a selkie changes into a beautiful woman and has children with a man. Their children were able to see into the future and communicate telepathically with animals. One wonders then at Ilona's own history and calling. In Australian Aboriginal mysticism, it is believed that you are the embodiment of your name. For Ilona Selke, this certainly seems very close to the truth.
Ilona has spent more than 1,000 hours in the water with dolphins and has experienced their uncanny ability to react to thought alone rather than any visual or physical instructions. She has written two books about the wisdom she discovered through her close work with dolphins: “Dolphins, Love and Destiny: Yoga for the Soul” and “Wisdom of the Dolphins: Discovering the Mystery of the Holographic Universe.”
