My Dream Has Now Become, My Reality…1-brad-castillo

Written by Brad Castillo – April 2016

Some of you already know the story behind, “The Legend of Kate Kensington” and what it took to bring it to where it is today. With any good story, there has to be a journey of transition. A transition so POWERFUL that it unlocks your body armor and touches your soul.

I wanted to share not only a dream, but a message of life to those that are struggling with acceptance.

Because that is exactly where I was in my Darkened Days… Struggling with acceptance and embracing the possibility of letting go. When the walls begin to close in, the pressure of reality becomes more focused and you begin to succumb to the Darkened energy.

But for me, there was a light… and this light spoke to me!

“By excepting what you can not change, you will release your pain. There is so much more than just this life. It’s beautiful! You are just going to have to believe that things are this way, because they are meant to be”.

I continue to struggle everyday with my life, but I now have my Faith in the Lord. Life will always be a balance; this is why it is so important to surround yourself with positive people. In the end, they will bring out the BEST in you.

During my journey of turning a Dream into a Reality I felt as though I was being guided to certain things in the Bible and messages from people of inspiration. I wanted to share with you today something that I have read over and over during the course of shooting “The Legend Of Kate Kensington”.

It was a gift for me, and I would like to share it with you!KateWater

When you are working on a Dream, at some point a transition takes place. The transition is, what you are becoming in pursuit of the dream. Even if you don’t get the Dream, you become such a strong and powerful person because you have entered a life of challenging yourself.

You are now developing yourself in such confidence. Once you discover who you are, then you will really realize how you have been given authority and dominion over everything on the face of the Earth, including all the dimensions of your life.

But you can only do that with the struggle of life!

Most people avoid the struggle and they do their best to avoid the pain… when you go through life like that, something in you dies! Something in you that you have never activated is lying dormant in there, that you never get a chance to call on because you have not challenged yourself.

The land of familiarity belongs to the Dead!

Most people like to feel like they are King in the area of their comfort zone. They only want to do those things that they know how to do well.

Unless you are tempted to do something beyond that, you have already mastered, you will NEVER GROW!

If you want to begin to grow, you have to put something out there that you can’t reach easily….

Something that has to make you stretch, make you jump for it, MAKE YOU STEP BACK AND DIG IN!

You may fall and skin your knees… but you get back up!

Through this process you learn how to leap higher… you start challenging yourself to dig deeper and you discover some things about you. Some talents that you have in you, that you didn’t know that you could do.the-official-theatrical-legend-of-kate-kensington-poster-hayley-whitney-printing

Challenging yourself develops confidence! Confidence allows you to grow!

It begins with trusting in yourself and letting go of the fear of failing.

There are some things about life that defies logic… You just can’t explain how the outcome is going to be…

Walk by faith and not by sight! Trust in the Lord!

Once you begin to trust yourself and your ideas and instincts, life takes on a whole new meaning, because you feel as though you are lead.

You don’t need anybody to improve your dream. It was given to you!

If they can’t see it, it is because it wasn’t given to them!

It was given to you!

Hold it!

Nourish it!

Cultivate it!

Work on it!

It’s yours!

It’s your baby!

Work on it until it comes into fruition!

               My Dream, These Words and the POWER of FAITH have saved my LIFE and has surrounded me in the POWER OF LIGHT!
