Did you know that Roatan, Honduras used to be inhabited by Pirates, including Henry Morgan? The British Government made piracy illegal and then they proceeded to hire the “pirates” to ransack Spanish ships. The pirates became known as privateers, and they lived on Roatan at Port Royal (which is also the name of one of the local beers… yummy). Any loot that the privateers took became property of the British Government, and the privateers received a decent salary for their work. They were allowed to keep one gold chain in their possession, so they got creative and made the chains really long and heavy! They were also allowed to keep one gold earring. Getting a proper burial was very important to the privateers, and upon giving a fellow pirate their burial, the earring was taken as payment.
Today I am dreaming about finding a pirate map with a huge red X on it marking the spot where some of that British loot was hidden (they didn’t give it all to the British… they are pirates!). Oh, the adventure I am going to have searching for that treasure! Once I find it, you can bet that I will share it!
There’s a little history lesson for you today, and also a reminder to have a dream! Dream big or dream small, just make sure that your dreams seem crazy, illogical, amazing and personal. The more you can allow yourself to think about the impossible, the closer you will be to achieving those dreams.
Enjoy your search for hidden treasures, whatever that means to you. Namaste.
