It was such a nice piece about a wonderful musician. He posted the link to his FB, and I enjoyed reading it. At the end of the article, readers were encouraged to suggest another creative for an interview. My mind fell on an artist that works with me. Her mural is currently uplifting the atmosphere of a school building and I told her that she needed press. BOOM. There was my force of nature Capricorn that is everywhere and does everything. My lovely yoga instructor is simply a refreshing individual and brings a lot of quiet power to the table. However, it was also possible to refer myself. The article said so. I thought but why would I do that, I would not be chosen. They already had harp a while ago. Then I thought…..why wouldn’t I be chosen? I am not the average bear and do not fit societal standards by many a measure. Four days later I was informed that I was selected.
I have the gift of looking at a woman and seeing a diamond in the rough in the event her shine is currently dimmed. Many times, I have the suggestions that can bring that potential to the surface and turn her into the prowling lioness that she truly is. If I can do that for others, why not pass some of that on to myself? Look at what happened. So at this point….I draw but one conclusion.
Have a dream that is bigger than yourself. It should be just out of your reach. Wild. Free from inhibition. Then slowly but surely work towards making it come true. The time shall pass regardless of if you sit at home watching Netflix, or blog away on a Sunday afternoon while cooking jerk chicken. Work towards that ridiculous thought in your mind that you do not think can actually happen.
Thanksgiving found me with a five hour performance at a familiar haunt. The opening of this holiday season would prove significant for me in that it would gauge the rest of the season. A first time happening popped its beautiful head in that I was also booked for the day after the dry bird for the first time ever. I wondered if there would be sadness over the missing presence of my father during this time. Fortunately, the sadness never came. Why, I found myself quite happy and rejoicing.
I think what helps me a great deal is that I do not think of my father in the past tense. My relationship with him continues. As sleep came after a terrible headache caused by a lack of meat, Daddy paid me a visit in a dream. He was happy as could be. I saw him in his home at the end of the hallway with a big smile on his face. It seems as if he was pleased with how I was caring for my mother and he encouraged me to continue along my way. My eyes opened the next day with great joy as the packing for the bris began.
My dream was so very pleasant. It was filled with beautiful music. Unfortunately, I was unable to fall back to sleep for the remainder of the night. When I was finally in my car to head to work, I had to return to my home approximately three times to handle missing items. Upon opening my work email, I read a chastisement of sorts. My initial reaction was to burst into tears and return home. Instead, I chose to respond to the person with a stern explanation, especially since he is not my boss. Then there was the situation with scheduling not being clear. I contacted the source and nipped all other heresay in the bud.
A fellow vendor crossed my mind, and I picked up the phone to call him. Upon answering he said that he was just thinking about me. I smiled and said that we were connected. He forwarded me an email that he wanted me to have. Do you know that it had some of the information from my dream? I pursued this further with internet research. Before long, my gut told me that I was going to leave early. It happened. There I went out the door without permission. Why? I knew that I didn’t need it because I had given it to myself. Its amazing what happens to you when you assume authority over yourself.
The afternoon radio show featured a man that said being laid off was the best thing that ever happened to him. He was able to get himself into a better position working for himself. He was healthier because of the lack of fumes and less stress. It made me think about myself. From the day that I took action to put myself in a better place, a weight was removed from my back.
I have been paying attention to the signs that I have received all day. Time spent in silence with a cigar helped iron out some of the messages. It wasn’t long before I understood what was desired of me. A better place is in store for me if my efforts continue to be persistent. Pounding of the pavement is a must, but it is something that can be done. More conclusions were drawn as well as the embracing of the lunar eclipse; this is a time for positive things and new beginnings. I look forward to my dreams tonight because I can only imagine what I will see. Will there be more melodious sounds? Perhaps a glimpse of my soul mate. Do I have a soul mate? I believe that a person can have more than one but that is for another post.
Dreamwork can be very exciting a provide you with messages that you need to hear. What happens when you dream of others? Well, you are suddenly put in the position of to share or not to share. I have learned the hard way that most of the time, you should at least consider sharing. I have even received phone calls encouraging me to share anything that pops into my head at any given time so that the person is not walking around in the dark.
I chose to speak of this this evening because this has happened at least twice within the past two weeks. The one that has just happened was quite beautiful, and I did share it with my sister. Because the dream showed me a beautiful Indian wedding close to the beach with a classical Indian dancer, I recognized the presence of Yemaya and the beauty of India. My conclusion was that my sister should begin to produce wonderful frocks that combine her knowledge of the spiritualty systems there as well as the wonderful colors & fabrics. Would I have gathered as much otherwise? No. My head has been submerged in my workshops, crafting, and cooking. It was my joy to share with her and shall always do so.
We were given mouths to speak. We are given dreams to build. If we speak our dreams aloud, imagine what we can accomplish:) Tracking your dreams is also very important if you are interested in your personal interpretations and tracking patterns. Some dreams will be more important than others and sometimes, yes your mind just wants something to do while you are asleep. However, it truly does help to know what your own symbology means or understanding the source of the dream. Sleep well.
As I sit staring at the dawn of a new year, my heart is filled with passion, hope, and plans. Many lessons have been learned in 2009 which will propel me into 2010. There are people in the world that can not unleash their own demons and will destroy you in the process; these are the people that you need to stay away from even if it means a huge effort on your part. Protect yourself from negativity at all costs so that you are not caught in an energy that can do nothing but harm your light. It has also come to my attention that as busy as I have been, more business will be required in order to get everything in its exact place. It is in 2010 that I promise to have a louder more compelling voice than ever before. There are certain plans that are already in place that I plan to see through in the new year.
I have learned to never stop dreaming in 2009…in 2010, some of those dreams will become a reality. It is with this sentiment that I say to you, let this be the time when you dare to do the impossible, be the dream in 2010. Peace-Love, & Light to all. Look for my unleashing soon…..
