The Witches of Broomstick

witches-on-broomsLast night I dreamed my friend, Maureen and I were witches.  Our mission was to annihilate those witches who were evil.  We would pop into a place where a bad witch was and dispose of her.  Energy would shoot from our finger tips, and the job would get done.  We would pop, always riding on our broomstick, to the next bad witches location and do the deed all over again.

The very last witch in the dream was different though.  When Maureen and I shot energy from our fingertips, she just stood there calmly taking it all in.  She was quite beautiful and serene looking.  I shouted at Maureen that we needed more power and this time flames flew from our fingertips, and the witch was consumed with flames.  I was aware that we had not killed her though.  I began to have doubts about our mission for the first time.  How could someone so calm and serene be bad?  She didn’t look bad, though I know looks can be deceiving.  Most importantly, to a good witch like me, is that she didn’t “feel” bad.

Up until this moment I trusted that the Powers That Be who sent us on each mission knew what they were doing.  Could they be wrong?  It was at this point that I woke up.  I was actually pretty excited at first realizing that I could fly and that I had so much power literally at my fingertips.  Then I began to look for the deeper meaning in the dream.

Of course, I called Maureen right away and told her about the dream.  Between the two of us we were able to see that the meaning of the dream had many different layers:

  • With great power comes great responsibility?   Ben Parker, Spiderman’s Uncle – Always use discernment when using your power.
  • Just because someone tells you another person is bad or wrong doesn’t mean they are.  Use discernment.
  • What is my mission here on planet Earth?  Is it something I think I “should” be doing because of my spiritual programming or is it time to “discern” a deeper meaning into my life’s work?

I think more of this dreams meaning will reveal itself to me over time.  I would love to hear any interpretations you may have as well.

Discernment and Faith

dd69569daf0ebf8dbf0ba4f8d7d80c4aDiscernment means to perceive or recognize a truth by sight or with other senses; knowing.

Faith is a passionate intuition.  ~William Wordsworth~

I used to have trouble with the word faith.  In the religious sense of the word, it means to have a strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.  Until that is, I realized the word also means complete trust or confidence in someone or something.

We can’t know discernment without faith, faith in ourself that is.  How can we know something is true if we can’t trust ourselves to know that it’s true?  That is what I am being pulled more and more into, faith in myself.  I say pulled into because that is what this feels like.  I am gently being pulled deeply into my center.  And in my center I find my Truth.
