Last night I dreamed I was riding on a bus with my boyfriend Hugh Jackman. I felt the need to go for a run so I jumped off the bus and careened down this hill onto a path that led into the woods. Once on the path it went from daylight to darkness. These woods were very creepy looking. I had been here many times before and I remember how frightened I had been each time I arrived at this place.
This time it was different. I wasn’t afraid. I leaned down to pick up a small stuffed animal that was laying on the ground and my surroundings immediately became illuminated. I could see that the forest was still very scary looking but I had no fear. I knew I had been here before and that I always made it through to the daylight again.
On the other side of the forest was a room filled with homeless people. They were listless and stared off into space. I offered them rice crispy treats and they perked up and seemed happy.
When I awoke I immediately knew this dream was a message from my subconscious that “I’ve got this”. I have been here before and I can do this. “This” being the major move I have just made. Yesterday I moved from the Twin Cities where I have lived for the past 30 years to Ashland, WI. In many way’s I’m entering the unknown (dark scary forest). But I have the light within me to see me through to the other side.
I feel the homeless people represent how many of us seem lost right now. The work I do offers sustenance (rice crispy treat) and reminds us of the sweetness of life.
I would love to hear any insights you may have to this dream. Please feel free to share your interpretation with me here.
Words have power. The written word even more so. I was about to write a post in a Facebook group that I’m part of when I stopped myself. As I was writing the words I became aware of how real I was making the issue I was writing about. I was casting a spell and inviting the group to strengthen the spell by reading it. I was going to write about the pain and struggle I have experienced around some physical challenges I’m having now. As I typed each letter the spell began to form and I had this sense that if I continued writing the post it would make what I was going through that much more difficult. I erased the words and thus erased the spell.
I did talk about my struggle with a close friend and my boyfriend. These two people are safe. These two people see me as whole and complete. They understand that sometimes we need to talk about things to release them and in the releasing them I began to feel better by the end of the day. Not everyone can hold space for us in this way. It is a special gift we give one another.

Be Impeccable with Your Word
Your word is the power that you have to create. It is a gift. All the magic you possess is based on your word. Every human is a magician, and we can either put a spell on someone with our word or we can release someone from a spell. We cast spells all the time with our opinions.
Your word can create the most beautiful dream, or your word can destroy everything around you. If you don’t misuse your word you will only create beauty, love, and heaven on earth.
This got me thinking about what it means to be a spell caster vs. a light weaver. To be perfectly honest, some days I am both. Yet today I am more aware of the impact each has on the world and the responsibility I have when I choose my words.

Everything we experience has a beginning, a middle, and and end, and is followed by a new beginning. Therefore do not draw back from the passage into darkness: When in deep water, become the diver.
~Ralph Blum, The Book of Runes~
It is easy to retreat from darkness. I feel It is the fear of the unknown that really frightens us. I know this from my ability to skedaddle at a moments notice when darkness comes to call. The real challenge in any situation is to hold still and allow the darkness to unfold around you. We tend to think that the darkness will consume us. That is not true. If we could see the brightness of our own Being we would no longer be afraid of the dark. We would never be afraid of anything again.
I ask my Guidance how do we recognize our own light? Be still my child, you are so often running around, consumed by busyness that beingness can not be found. Beingness, light, love are all within you. Your fear keeps you from your knowing. Be still. Being still does not mean holding yourself tightly so that you can not breathe. All things come to you on the breath. All love, all light, everything comes to you when you breathe.

I asked my IGS (Internal Guidance System) or Soul Self this morning why I was continuing to experience extreme physical symptoms. It seems that just when I have one symptom cleared another pops up. Here is the message I was given today.
Your physical symptoms are in direct response to your evolution in consciousness. The more “emotional baggage” you release the lighter the body becomes. You literally open the body to receive more light. That can be a painful process as the body carries so much density.
Imagine you are looking directly into the sun. When you do so the light hurts your eyes. You are taught to believe that light is all rainbows and fairy tales. Light is strength. Just like the diamond is the strongest element on Earth you are formed in the same way. A diamond is created under extreme pressure and heat. Do you see what we mean now?
Trust your body to know what it is doing. As long as you continue to listen to your body and take care of its needs it will support you. Let go of the idea that the body is betraying you. It is evolving along with your consciousness. Be patient as the physical journey to consciousness is more challenging than the rest.
