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.

Pride

peacock-1676635_1920

“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

From vocabulary.com:

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. . .

6/29/17

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.

Communications Log Entry 1

In the health center where I work they keep a communications log so that the owner, therapists, and office staff can all communicate quickly with each other and have an easy record of the responses.  I’ve decided to create my own log.  

Yesterday I had a session with my coach, relaying my frustration that I didn’t feel as connected to my intuition, angels, and other guides as I knew I had the ability to do.  (I’d done it in past lives!)  Part of me felt that maybe the timing wasn’t right.  But part of me also felt that I wasn’t giving it the attention it required.  If I really wanted this badly . . . didn’t it need a little more love and focus?

She asked me to implement 3 things.  For multiple days, but at least for one day.  I’m going to shoot for 60.  This will be a combination of many things: a log of dreams, intuitive happenings, animal symbols, and angel numbers.  It will be a record of questions I’ve asked and answers I’ve received.  

So, here we go, starting with yesterday/this morning:

DREAMS

This morning I dreamt I was running from someone.  I believe he was Asian, and perhaps a martial artist.  In one of the first sections of the dream I was hiding in a side room with my sister.  My parents were in the other room, perhaps as a gatekeeper.  I didn’t see it, but I understood that my parents were later killed.  Again, I was running from this man, and perhaps a gang of people.  I quickly ducked into a restaurant (not sure if my sister was with me) and the owner hid me in the back, possibly among some very large pots/cauldrons.  I think they came in looking, but I can’t remember.  At the end I was in a room with a friend, probably her house.  We were standing at the counter and there was a telephone.  When we picked up the phone we got a strange voice.  At first it sounded like it was the Asian man talking with us, but then it seemed like it was a recorded message. I had the feeling we were now trapped in this place.

I also had a dream that I was in a bathroom with my current employer, and she was cleaning up some water on the floor, saying that it had come from the place of my fiancees previous employer.

Finally, I remember a dream sequence where I was rolling around laughing on the floor twice.  Once was after I’d been shown a picture of something, I think of someone, on someone’s phone.

Yesterday I dreamt something about improv.  I remember doing quite a bit of it.  At one point I believe I was making swimming motions.  I remember people being attracted to me, coming toward me.  (I must have been good at it!)

ANGEL NUMBERS

The gas pump stopped early for some reason.  I didn’t realize until I was back driving again that the car was only 3/4 full.  I looked at the price and total gallons and then decided to look up these numbers in Doreen Virtue’s angel number book:

618

Your manifestation practices are working.  Keep visualizing and affirming abundance.

818

Your positive affirmations about your career and finances are working, so keep going.

198

Your life purpose is the answer to your prayers about money.  Devote yourself to service that involves your natural talents and interests, and you’ll be fully supported in return.

Other angel numbers that popped up, to see if they repeat: 45, 111, 77.

QUESTION AND ANSWER:

Question: I wonder how I can better connect with myself and my guides?

Answer: Reach out to them, experiment, and log your experiences.

Question: My friend/colleague is reaching out, and I don’t feel I can support her in the way she is asking.  How else can I help?

Answer: Ask her how else you can help.

OTHER OBSERVATIONS

  • I had some computer challenges yesterday.  The computer froze up at the office at least twice. (Was it me?)
  • I noticed a repeat of some of the names on the scheduler.  (Twice there were back-to-back clients who shared the same name.)
  • Quite a bit of head buzzing (overhead and forehead, where the 3rd eye is.)
  • This morning I could have sworn the dishrack was full. I planned to ask Brian to clear it.  But when I was on the phone this morning talking with him about other things, I looked over, and it was clear.  He had cleared it the night before.
  • Driving home, late at night, for the first half of the drive I hit mostly red lights.  (For the 2nd half I decided to stop paying attention to it.)
  • A tutoring student who I hadn’t heard from in a while reconnected with me yesterday evening.  I had been thinking about him that morning.
  • It is currently 8:18 as I’m typing this.
  • I had the inclination I needed to stay in the right lane.  That turned out to be the best move.

CURRENT READINGS, ETC

  • I have read up to chapter 3 of Crossing Over by John Edward.
  • I recently purchased My View from Heaven: A Boy’s Story of His Journey to Heaven and the Purpose of Life on Earth. By Sarina Baptista

OTHER OTHER

  • I recently became an official volunteer for Joliet Hospice.  I have now completed two visits to a nearby senior living community.
  • I have found my attention being drawn to graveyards for the past year.  This past week I had a lovely birthday breakfast with my dad, and as we are walking, we decided to stop in the local one and discovered some very old, very fascinating grave markers that dated back to Civil War times!

This feels like a study!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I already am!  Feel free to join in the fun!

Much love and many blessings. ❤

Top Two Lessons from the Camino

IMG_1846

I’m back! Writing again!  It’s Teri, Joyedian (entertainer, healer, teacher).  As you know, I just walked 500 miles in 31 days though northern Spain on the Camino de Santiago.  It was an amazing experience, and I’m definitely doing it again!

I’d like to share with you the two most important things I learned:

1) Everyone has his/her own “Camino.”  Some prefer to walk alone; some go in groups.  Some preferred to stay in albergues (hostels), while others stayed in hotels.  Some got blisters, some had none.  Some carried small backpacks, and some carried the world on their backs!  It is the same in life.  Every person’s journey is unique.  We come into this world with gifts to give and lessons to learn.  We come to shine our light for the world.

2) My life’s mission became clearer.  I inspire individuals to change themselves so that they can change the world!

What is your “Camino” (Journey)?  Would you like to share part of this wild ride called life with me? 

I’m starting up the monthly “Your Joyful Life” newsletter again.

It includes inspirational, motivational content, including:

  • my favorite blog post of the month
  • my favorite video of the month
  • workshops and classes coming up
  • the Special! of the month
  • your monthly FREE gift  (September’s is the transcript from my Toastmasters speech “10 Things I Never Expected to Never Forget on the Camino”)

Are you in? Here’s what I need from you:

1)  Click here for terikarl.com to my access my contact form and tell me  “Yes, thank you!” or “Yes” or “I’m in!”  etc,  if you’d like to receive “It’s a Joyful Life”

OR

2) Do nothing and just keep enjoying “A Moment in Life.”

Much love and many blessings. I look forward to hearing from you.

Love,

Teri

Something Unexpected Brought Back from the Camino

IMG_0051

These yellow bags were handed out at a few of the albergues (hostels) along the Camino in Spain.  They were part of a promotion to clean up the walkways of the Camino.  I wondered what success they could possibly have with this initiative.  Would this bag really used by pilgrims for recycling along the Camino?

However, the initiative planted a seed in me, one that I wasn’t even fully aware was there.  When I returned to the U.S., I resumed my new walking routine.  I walked the paths near my home.  Two days ago, I paused while walking, distracted by a piece of broken glass on the sidewalk.  I picked it up and walked with it until I got to the nearest garbage bin.  On the way back, I noticed more pieces of glass.  I picked those up and disposed of them as well.  Yesterday I was prepared — plastic bag and paper towel in hand — and gathered glass, wrappers, cups, bags, and other debris along the path.  I decided this could give me extra purpose to my walk and that I would often bring bags to stick in my mini-backpack just in case.

Will this help the Camino?  Maybe!  Maybe someone will notice what I’m doing someday, and will start picking up around them.  And they will inspire someone else.  And so on, and so on.   You never know what you might learn.  And you never know how you might inspire a difference.  Every bit changes the world.

Love, light, and many blessings. ❤
