Sahara Wind asks, “When will things be in place so I can let go of the practical job I am doing for financial support and embrace the work I feel so connected and passionate with. Are there obstacles or only perceived ones?”

You are answering her own question, my dear.  The obstacles are those you create to keep you from stepping forward.  All beings should pursue their wonder, their path, for in that they are unlimited and free and to achieve all of the wonder.  I do not deny the knowledge that is needed to live in the physical world, certain tokens.  But see it as a need for help, survival, to find joy.  Not as a certain bit of candy at a certain time but an actual tonic for life.  Put in place freeing yourself my child and it shall be.
