A Joyedian’s Tale: Living with the Remnants of Another Me

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.

Attempting to write blog posts in chunks is not so great for this Virgo, Gemini Moon, Aquarius Rising individual. This is my third time sitting down to write this post, and I find myself saying: “Oh, that was SO this morning.”   I blame the Gemini.

This is the house, the house that I live in.


Hi, Bowser!

I’ve lived in it for 10 years, most of those years with Brian, the love of my life.  When I bought this house I had just moved out of my parents’ house, was 4 years into a career, and imagined I would settle in, maybe for the rest of my life.  Soon after, Brian moved in, then 2 cats (to keep each other company) . . . then a dog (for Brian) . . . and then finally another dog because  — obviously — we are crazy.

Now, looking back, much has changed.  I left that “career” job years ago.  I’ve had at least 6 other jobs since then, and now I have absolutely no urge to “settle down.”  In fact, I’ve spent some of the best moments of my life in other states and countries.

I realized: I’m an entirely new person, living in the shell of an old me.

The good news is that Brian and I now finally have a shared dream.  We’re going to go mobile.  Today we started a shared Google Doc so that we can work on our plan whenever the mood strikes us.  (Planning can be tough with two entirely different work schedules.)   We’ve begun talking about the bare essentials we’d need to take with us and some changes we’d need to make, such as:

  • selling our home and finding someone to host us so that we’d have an actual “permanent address” for mail and the like
  • a shared crossover vehicle, instead of our 2 compact cars. (Enough to hold 4 pet carriers as well as all of our belongings!)
  • new health insurance

This is my dream — to make my life the Camino: to live every day as an adventure.  It’s time for the next adventure, and the whole family’s going this time!

Here’s to our 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.





“Where there is a real superiority of mind, pride will be always under good regulation.” — Fitzwilliam Darcy, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

“I was given good principles, but left to follow them in pride and conceit.” — ALSO Fitzwilliam Darcy, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen


The noun pride describes a feeling of happiness that comes from achieving something. When you do a good job or finish a difficult task, you feel pridePride can also have a negative meaning and refer to exceedingly high self-regard.

I had a post in mind, but now I’m thrown off by researching the definition of the word.  I was all set to denounce pride, releasing it so that I could set myself free from the jealousies, insecurities, etc associated . . .  But . . .  the “feeling of happiness that comes from achieving something”?  In other words . . .  celebrations?  Recognizing accomplishments?  Maybe even . . .  gratitude?

I could certainly use more of those things.

What are your thoughts?

Much love any many blessings. ❤

Angel Numbers: 8888! and 2222!

I got some very strong angel numbers back-to-back today.  The 8’s are a strong message of abundance, and the 2’s are a strong message of everything going well and according to plan.  These showed up at the same time on my odometer today as I was thinking about intuition and my purpose to help others with knowing themselves and making their own decisions.  I must be on the right track!

Much love and many blessings. ❤

Camino Thoughts: Day 2 of Walking

I’ve been meaning to do this for some time, so here it is!  Straight from my Camino Journal: Flashback to Day 2. . .


Happy birthday, Rachel!  I will probably always remember that.  Many blessings to you, Rachel.

Today was a bit hellish at the end.  Another monstrous downhill, this time very rocky.  My left foot was a bit sore before today and only got more sore after today’s fiasco.

Had a few conversations in French today –> used Google Translate to communicate with someone who knew just a little more English than I know French (which is barely any!)  We talked about America, music, movies, and a few other things.  I also had a beer with another young lady.  That’s all really to say for now.  I’m a bit tired.

Had a good convo. in Spanish with a biking Spaniard yesterday.  And really like the patata tostada. 🙂  And am really attracted to Romance language speakers.  I think I will start with French this year.  And I will offer myself for Spanish.  For the rest of the year we can speak a language we know already or start knowing or just use the language for a year. (Idea for a language club.)

Had a creepy dream this morning.  Had known about a a car accident.  Had thought it was this crazy guy, (maybe a drunk?)  But when the car door was opened, it was some young woman.  Was disturbing.

Suggested mantra from my coach:

I, Teri, release whatever it is I need to release and accept whatever I need to accept to remember my dreams here and now from this day forward.
