A Joyedian’s Tale: The Return of Sra. Crankypants


Dear angels, God, Ascended Masters, Entities of Light, saints, Mother Gaia (Earth) . . .  and any and all beings for the good of all concerned, thank you for another day and for being a part of it.

Today Sra. Cranky Pants is back (my alter-ego).  It occurred to me a few minutes ago — after riding out another of my many emotional rollercoasters — that I could actually be grateful for these experiences.  With this much emotional impact, I’m bound to grow.  It’s even inevitable for me . . . even when I try not to.

Yesterday I got triggered multiple times, this after being slammed a few days earlier on Monday and Tuesday with some high emotions and tough karmic learning.  I just wanted to quit caring.  I visualized closing doors over my heart.  It just felt like too much.

However, thanks to a husband who can’t accept “I’m fine.  I really don’t want to talk about it” — both honest “Thanks” and sarcastic “Thanks” there because I actually really didn’t want to talk about it, and yes, there is still a little bitterness there — a lot of it spilled out.  I didn’t feel great afterwards, but I would also like to quit judging myself, particularly on how I think I’m supposed to be for other people.

So, I’m still a little edgy today.  The ten degree weather really isn’t helping because I’m a sun and heat girl, and I’ve decided I’ll be riding out Chicago winters until our dream of living mobile happens — which is related to yesterday’s triggers, so I won’t be touching on that anymore today, thank you!

And in other news — though I am thinking this may actually be connected to what I was just writing about —  I am on Day 2 of Self-Healing with Reiki.  I decided it’s time to advance to the next level(s) of healing, and circumstances are pointing toward Reiki at the moment (though I enjoy the Healing Touch Chakra Connection sequence and will probably end up creating some combo of the two).  I’ve reconnected with my Reiki I teacher, I read through the entire Reiki I binder yesterday morning, and I am completing 21 days of the self-healing practice before I touch base with her again.

Sometimes you’ve gotta clear out the gunk so the light can stretch further.

Much love and many blessings. ❤

A Joyedian’s Tale: Dreams and Plans


Dear angels, God, ascended masters, Entities of Light, saints, Mother Earth . . .  and any and all beings for the good of all concerned, thank you for another day and for being a part of it.

I’ve had some interesting dreams the last 2 days.  Yesterday I had a beautiful dream that I was back finishing the Camino (a hike in Spain).  I just had a little bit left, and I would be going straight to the wedding when I finished.  I realized I didn’t even have a backpack on.  I guess I didn’t need it!

In this morning’s dream I was in a play with a girl role similar to the role I played in Back to the 80’s.  During the first performance I nearly forgot a line and also forgot to put a microphone pack on, so I was yelling out my lines.  At the end, one of my student’s from the School of Metaphysics came up to me asking me about translations of some of the words into Spanish.  I didn’t understand why they were doing a Spanish version.

The first dream seems to show the transition between the Camino and my upcoming marriage — from one adventure to the next!  The second dream has something to do with the field of imagination, communication, and forgetting the tools needed to voice my dreams.

I have recognized that for some time I’ve been in an unproductive state of mind.  I’ve needed a mindset shift.  I’ve been dancing along the edge but haven’t made the leap.  Perhaps this is what my dream is about.

I am reading Your Soul’s Plan by Robert Schwartz and Light Emerging by Barbara Brennan.  They complement each other well.  My sister says this is the time of study for my astrological sign.  This fits in perfectly.  I’ve been itching to immerse myself in something.  I love the concept of healing a person from a soul level, re-connecting them with their soul plan.  Both of these books speak on this.

I still experience darkness.  I am facing some of my “demons.”  A big one right now is envy.  I see commercials and Facebook posts of people doing something similar to what I want to be doing (like traveling and living in RVs).   “Freedom” has been coming up for me quite frequently. I feel like I get restless so much more quickly lately.

What I’m reading tells me that the darkness is a good thing.  You need to experience darkness to better understand the light, right?  If this is what I need to realize my dreams, then I embrace it.  This is what it looks like while it’s all coming together.

Much love and many blessings to you all. ❤

A Joyedian’s Tale: The Life and Adventures of a Lightworker


Dear angels, God, ascended masters, Entities of Light, saints, Mother Earth . . .  and any and all beings for the good of all concerned, thank you for another day and for being a part of it.

I am most excited today about taking a bath.  I haven’t had a bath in years (YES showers, though, no worries!), and I forgot how wonderful they are.  For years I gave away bubble bath gifts and packed away epsom salts, wishing I had a working bathtub. And then this year I thought — why not??  I HAVE a bathtub — how hard can it be to replace this faulty stopper?  Well, apparently it is pretty darn hard actually, but thanks to my absolutely wonderful future father-in-law, I now once again can take baths.   And I took one.  And it was soooo wonderful.  I seriously felt like a little 5-year-old again, playing in and soaking in the steamy water.

In other news — I’m bringing some things back.  I’m slowly introducing myself as a “Joyedian” again.  I was starting to miss it a bit, and a friend said: “Why don’t you just bring it back?”  So, I thought, “Why not?”    I’ve also started up a healing practice again.  I performed some chakra clearings (from Healing Touch Level One) on my mom and sister over the weekend and posted on Facebook that I’m looking for others to serve.  So far I haven’t gotten any bites, so I may start heal tackling my fiancee Brian for practice. (Kidding!  Of course I need permission before any healing.)  Well, let’s see. . .

“Brian, do I have permission to heal tackle you?”


“I just tell you I’m going to heal you and heal you.”

No response.


“What you talking about ‘heal tackle me’?  You can’t tackle me!”

“So, is that a no then?”

“Well, sure, why don’t you go ahead and try.  We’ll see who really gets tackled.”

Ok well. . .  maybe I’ll just stick with my mom and sister for now.

I’ve begun meditating again!  And actually wanting to and enjoying it.  This is huge for me.  For the past few years most of my meditating was done for the School of Metaphysics so that I could check it off my exercise log for class.  I was thinking about the exercise log this week and also thinking I should bring it back.  But instead of pressuring myself to fill it out 100%, I would use it as more of a guide and observational tool.  I would list various activities that could add to my spiritual practice for the day and keep track of which I use from day-to-day.  I think I will start brainstorming on that today and report back tomorrow.

In still other news, I’ve been kind of dark lately.  I’ve gotten caught up in my “story” and felt very, very stuck the last few months.  Thankfully, I decided to go ahead with my original plan and last weekend I gifted myself an intuitive report for Christmas.  My previous School of Metaphysics teachers (now married!) Golbahar and Brian performed it.  I got a past life crossing with my fiancee Brian, and it was AMAZING!  One of the parts that really stuck out for me was the advice that I need to believe in “miracles.”  What was particularly neat is that I went back and listened to one of my recent coaching sessions with Lorilei, and I realized she also mentioned a focus on “miracles.”  I almost cried!

My dreams have continued to be a little odd and interesting.  In this morning’s dream I actually used the world “holographic”, but it was referring to being trapped in an alternate reality created by an apparently nefarious male in my dream.  Alternate realities.  Life is but a dream.  Good stuff.

This is pretty long now, so I’ll end with the final suggestion from last week’s report: if you’re in a relationship, why not make a vision board of your life together?  I LOVE collaging, but since Brian is not as big a fan, I told him I’d get the board set up, and we could add little-by-little as we go (see this pic for this blog entry).  I took a huge cork board that he’d gotten from work and covered it in strips of white poster paper (for a less-distracting blank slate look).  It’s now sitting in our bedroom, ready to be tacked with images!

What other dreams will be painted today?  Much love and many blessings to you all! ❤

A Little Precognition


I wonder how often I have precognitive dreams.  I have not yet been able to fully understand the ones I’ve had so far. One or two were blatantly precognitive.  For some took me a while to make the connection.  None of them have been exact replicas of the future, which makes them harder to recognize.  They are often symbolic, like my other dreams — but instead of replaying scenes from my past, they show me possible scenes from my future.

This morning I dreamt of one of the patients at the healing center where I work as an office assistant.  In “real life”, his family had grown up knowing my family, and we reminisced and connected the last time I saw him.

This morning I vaguely remembered having a dream about him. I believe he was at the center, and I knew in the dream that he had scarring and was receiving healing/treatment for serious damage done to his body after delivering his baby.

It didn’t even occur to me until a couple of hours ago that I had SEEN HIM today in real life!

I’m not sure what to make of this dream yet.  If I take it a part and look at symbols and themes, what strikes me first is the symbols of “baby” and “birthing”, and also the damage done to the body.  Birthing the “idea”, damaged the one birthing it.  What also strikes me is what should strike anyone — a male gave birth to a baby!  In the School of Metaphysics we speak of the opposite sex in dreams as the inner , subconscious aspects of Self.  Whatever this idea or concept is . . .  it’s seems to be something to be cautious about.  I feel it is  saying something about not sacrificing or damaging the body or the Self, the vessel, in pursuit of goals/dreams.

Much love and many blessings. ❤

Dreams of Healing


I wish I’d written down my dreams immediately this morning.  What I do remember is this:

  • In the dreams I considered myself a “healer.”
  • I was in a room with individuals, but I don’t remember any touch interaction.
  • In one dream a woman was talking to me directly about the value of “struggle.”  And how it made her grateful for her life.
  • There was overall a feeling of gratitude.
  • In at least one dream, children were involved.

I’ve been looking into healing touch again. I was poking around in Barbara Brennan’s Hands of Light book.  And today I’m poking into a book a friend lent me: The Healing Energy of Your Hands by Michael Bradford.  Sometimes I ask myself if I’m just distracting myself from other things that I currently have in the works.  And sometimes I think: You’re being guided that way.  And anyway, maybe that doesn’t matter if it makes me happy.

Much love and many blessings to you all. ❤


Spiritual Dreams


If you happen to have caught me on Facebook: “Teri Karl Joy”, I promised to share about some interesting dreams I’d had this week.  I’ve been blessed to remember a lot of my dreams this week, but I’m PARTICULARLY excited about the spiritual dreams I had (even one just today!)


I dreamt I was at my parents’ house.  A cat had gotten in, a white and orange one (female).  I was annoyed at this and shooed it back out the balcony door.  Then I remember being below on the porch and seeing a black and white male cat looking forlorn.  Then he saw the female cat emerge and was happy again.  They actually sat, hugging each other.

Also today, something about a guy or two who were guides for me somehow.  (like tour guides).  I remember sleeping next to one (not sexual).

ALSO, I was at some kind of event, maybe a workshop.  There were a few people that I was acquainted with, and I gave them a quick hug, but then I recognized Mary Morrissey (one of my mentors) in the group. When I got to her, I have her a big, long, real hug.  She told me that there was a secret to the universe in each of the slides (Powerpoint Presentation), but it would only last a second.

I believe today was also the night I dreamt that there had been severe flooding, and I’d driven my car into the water, and it had gotten stuck.  (I’d lost it.)


I dreamt I was high up, mountain climbing.  I suddenly realized what I was doing, where I was, and I became a little terrified.  I was a little careless and knocked down a bolder.  My dad was some lengths below me, and didn’t get hit by it (but I was struck upon reflecting later how careless I’d been about it.)

There was a tarantula following me around everywhere.  I was in the dining/living area of my parents’ house.  I wasn’t frightened, just mainly annoyed.  At some point I immobilized it (maybe even killed it), but I don’t remember doing it.  It may have had something to do with the legs.

And THEN I dreamt I was leaving a space because there was a stampede of animals coming behind us.  I had scooped up these two small animals that had legs that were limp like rag dolls.  I entered this area where people were all sitting around, in a circular formation, and something came out toward us.  At first I thought maybe it was a unicorn or something, but it ended up being a person, a young man.  He looked like he was high school level, and I think he had very curly hair.  I think he was singing a song from Godspell.  He was singing “All Good Things Around Us”.  So, I started singing with him in harmony, because I was in Godspell in high school, and I knew the song.  I told him this.  He was excited about it.

Immediately following was another dream where I was in a setting like a university library.  There were 2 women, an older woman and a woman around my age.  We were sitting at a table together, and they took out a card.  The older woman asked me about what cards I use, like which type they were.  It seemed like she was asking if they were for good energy or lower energy.  And I said, “Well, they’re angel cards.” So, that seemed to satisfy her.  And then she pointed out a card, and there was a person on the card, and she was motioning toward the ankle, the foot.  She said something about “purpose” or something similar.

The card dream is the one I am most excited about.  If “feet” are spiritual foundation, as I learned in the School of Metaphysics, the woman (a wise, mentor-type figure), is telling me to make my spiritual foundation my purpose.  I have gotten this message multiple, multiple times from my angels.  But, sometimes it’s good to hear it through other avenues!

Godspell also caught my attention.  It is a musical based on the Gospel of Matthew in the Bible.  Back in high school I bought a karaoke version of the Godspell CD so that I could practice the songs, and I still have it now on my iTunes.  Over the weekend I decided to put my iTunes on shuffle while doing chores, and I heard 4 or 5 Godspell songs back-to-back.  I figured maybe I had accidentally just shuffled the Godspell album, but then the very next song was not a Godspell song.  (The angels know that I love coincidences!)  

When I asked out loud “How can I build my spiritual foundation?”, the answer I received was “Be still.”  A beautiful answer.  And it also occurs to me as I’m typing this that a little Godspell karaoke might also be of some assistance. 😉

OTHER SYMBOLS OF NOTE FOR ME TO CONTINUE TO WATCH FOR: Animals, teenage-aged men, parent’s house.  These could be related to old ways of thinking, patterns of thinking, and developing subconscious parts of myself.

I’m going to get back into dream interpretation.  (But in the meantime I would like to share a few more “Camino” posts.)  The plan is to start a weekly video on youtube.  I will share the link in my next post about dreams.  If you have any you’d like to share, please do.

Much love and many blessings. ❤

Dreams: October 11th, 2017

I dreamt I was sent on a quest to find 10 crystals/diamonds. But I was not to touch them, kind of like Aladdin in the cave.  I found 9 of them, I was pretty sure.  They just started appearing for me as I was looking for them along the way.  Someone after me had the same quest, and I relayed the directions.  There was something with Mother Teresa, too, like she had something to do with the quest or had completed it before.


People were to complete these tasks.  There were many groups of us in one area (a school gym?) all doing the same thing.  There were certain steps and a certain order, and we were struggling with some of the steps and getting bogged down and not completing it in time.  I felt very frustrated.


Something with travel.

Something with this outdoor area, multiple areas (stages) in this dream.  In one place renovations had just been completed, and there was this HUGE stage area that had been completed.  The stage wasn’t huge, but there were MANY, MANY seats.  A huge auditorium outdoors (amphitheater?)  There were also many places for people to gather, and there were some people that I bumped into at an outdoor eating area who I’d seen before.  We’d met on previous travels or something.

Something possibly with being encouraged to meet certain men?


I recognize what the second dream may be about.  Frustrations with things moving too slowly here.  Could be bureaucracy, could just be the slowness of the physical in general.  I’ve been experiencing the frustration with “stuckness”, so I can definitely relate to that dream.

The crystals dream is intriguing.  I don’t think I’ve dreamt anything like it before.  I think I was told to look for “diamonds”, but the objects looked more like large, fat, towers of selenite, like the one at work.  It seems I must be searching for something valuable or needing to search for something valuable.  It may even have something to do with the crystals.

The last dream is a smorgasbord and could be innerlevel goings on or symbolic of all of the movement of my mind during the day.


I really need to go back to asking myself questions.  That will direct the answers.

Much love and many blessings.
