Spiritual Dreams

girl-2506201_1280

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!)

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.)

EARLIER THIS WEEK

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. ❤

5 Wisdom Cards, Claircognizance, and Learning Obedience and Trust

I am experimenting with my claircognizance.  For now I am only intentionally using it to pick the correct wisdom deck and appropriate cards, but I’d like to expand that to events throughout that day.

I’ve mentioned before that there are 4 clairs, different psychic abilities — at least there are 4 that I’ve heard of.  They are clairsentience, claircognizance, clairvoyance, and clairaudience.  Doreen Virtue tells us that we have the potential for all 4, but there are some that we’ve either developed more or tapped more than others.

I always thought clairsentience was my strongest and the one that I should depend on the most.  I am a very sensitive person and have very strong feelings and emotions.  However, I have found that my feelings can be very misleading.  I sometimes misinterpret my emotions, and this leads to poor decision-making.  So, in the past week I’ve looked into “just knowing” things.  I know I’ve used this almost unconsciously in teaching and coaching, and I’m thrilled at the resonance I’ve found with using it for readings from the angels, Ascended Masters, etc, and my inner self.

#1

the-dreamer-card

This is the card that began last week’s journey: “The Dreamer.”  It is so beautiful that the last card I’d picked before this for myself was “Dreams” (mentioned in my previous blog post).  Clearly there is a common theme here!  I picked this card in answer to the question: “What guidance do you have for me today?”  Very open-ended, right?  Dreams have been a theme in my life, before I even realized it, and I was thrilled to receive this card.

#2 The second time I drew this past week I asked for guidance on the first card: How can I achieve my dream? Advice on this, please!  And this time, I received this fantastic card:

focused-intention-cardIt makes perfect sense!  Clarity, focused intention.  Keep your attention on your dream, and make it happen!  I have begun to be more intentional in my life in general.  Today in the coaching call with my coach, Jacque, this same thought came up again.

#3 This card threw me off at first:

fertility-card

The card is “Fertility!”  (I am not planning on having children anytime soon!)  However, I knew there was likely a deeper meaning.  I received this card in response to a question about a piece of my dream.  During my first training as a Life Mastery Consultant I had received a very high (for me!) amount in my head for a yearly salary.  I was so out of vibration with the amount that I began to feel mildly ill, in my mind and even in my body!  I didn’t understand why this amount had come to me, and so I asked about it.  I knew from reading the card’s description (in the deck booklet) that the message was to allow myself the plentitude (abundance!) to create my dream and to live out my purpose.  A scary thought, but a lovely one.

#4 and #5

patience-cards

These two cards were very painful.  (Sometimes I don’t like to wait!)  I was drawn to 2 different decks and was awed that I received the same message from both decks.  My question was about a new branch of coaching that has not yet come to fruition.  I had been receiving positive signs from the angels about it, but I wanted to check in again to be sure.  The message is clear.  Divine timing is at play here.  Maybe I am not ready.  Maybe the organization is not quite ready.  (or both!) But stick with it, be patient and wait.

I received a similar message this morning when working with my coach.  I wanted to learn more about receiving and why it was sometimes a challenge for me.  She asked me to check in with my inner self, and the answer I got was that it was not time to explore this yet.  This was very frustrating to me!  Tears came to my eyes, and I instantly felt like a petulant child.  How could this not be in my best interest? Wouldn’t this help me be successful?  She then actually used the analogy of a child for me.  I could even see it.  There are things that we — not omniscient and not omnipresent souls, young beings limited by our senses on the physical plane — may not understand yet.  We can do damage to ourselves by messing with things outside their timing, just as children can harm themselves when exploring things that they cannot yet understand.

So, this is the beginning of my obedience, obedience to my inner self.  This week has been a challenging one for me, every day my ego sneaking in and wreaking havoc with my emotions until I realize it was ego all along and surrendering it all once again!  I encourage you to surround yourself with supportive teachers (spirit, people, and also recordings of great people!)  They have encouraged me and straightened me out when I feel “lost”!

Much love, many blessings. ❤

Truth Tuesday: Angel Messages

It’s become a weekly tradition for me to check in with Doreen Virtue’s Angel Messages on the weekend.  It’s always inspirational and sometimes unbelievably spot on for me.  I’m praying that I’ll be able to open myself up enough to receive more messages directly.  You can get to Doreen Virtue’s Angel Therapy youtube channel directly here.

Much love and many blessings. ❤

Angel Communication

I have a couple of number combinations that have frequently popped up for me in the last year/few years.  And I believe it’s the universe’s way of communicating with me.  Some time ago my numbers were “911”.  Lately they’ve been “66” or “666”.  Since I’ve been looking into the meaning of numbers lately, I decided to do a little research on those particular combinations.  This is what I found from Joanne Scared Scribes on “Angel Numbers”:

On 911:

“The number 911 carries the vibrations of the numbers 9, 1 and the Master Number 11.  [That’s me, 11!] Number 9 resonates with the attributes of Universal Spiritual Laws, compassion, benevolence and generosity, living life as a positive example, leadership, service to humanity and lightworking. [Me, again!]  Number 9 also relates to endings and conclusions.  Number 1 resonates with self-reliance, new beginnings and progress, activity and energy, inspiration, attainment and fulfilment.  The double 1 resonates with the Karmic Master Number 11, which brings its attributes of illumination and enlightenment, inspiration, symbols, alternate consciousness, mysticism, catalyst, sensitivity, enthusiasm, creative/creativity. This makes the number 911 a powerfully spiritual vibration.”

“The Angel Number 911 indicates that the angels are telling you that a new door has opened up for you as a product of your positive thoughts, intentions and actions.  Make the most of this opportunity and walk forward with confidence and surety, knowing that you are fulfilling your karmic destiny.”

On 66 and 666:

“The repeating Angel Number 66 is a message to trust the Universe and your angels with supporting and assisting you in achieving and manifesting your desires in regards to your home, family, social and personal life. Repeating 66 tells you to keep your thoughts and feelings focused on achieving your goals, and you will attain your desires with the help and guidance from your angels.”

“The repeating number sequence 666 tells us that it is time to focus on your personal spirituality in order to balance and heal any issues in your life.  Tell the angels about any fears you may have concerning your material supply or lack thereof.  They are listening and wanting to help you feel prosperous and abundant.  Angel Number 666 asks you to be open to receiving help, love and support from both humans and the angels as it is there for the offing. You need to be receptive in order to receive and accept the help you need. ”

“The Angel Number 666 may also be indicating that your thoughts are out of balance at this time and you are asked to look to all aspects of your life making sure that all is as you feel it should be.  Look to service and humanitarian aspects including volunteering your time, donating money to charity, doing conscious random acts of kindness and/or being of service to those in need in some way. The angels and Universe will reward you accordingly and your needs will always be met.” [This is all exactly what I need to hear!]

Have you noticed any special number combinations popping up in your life?  If you have, search your own angel numbers and please share! 

Cross Communication: Trying to Find and Accept the Universe’s Plan for Me

I’ve been asking for guidance a lot lately from my spiritual guide(s).  I haven’t figured out how to communicate with them yet, though I still sometimes see them in my number combinations and hear them in the songs lyrics on the radio.

I feel like my heart and my mind are not lined up in what I want to do with my life, and I’m not sure exactly what to listen to.  Or how to listen, either.

Lately I’ve been losing tutoring students.  I was overwhelmed with students — freaking out and wanting a break — and now that I’ve gotten the break, I’m not taking it well.  I’m taking it as rejection or a sign of failure or a need to worry about money more.  I feel my spiritual guides must be frustrated with me. (Can they get frustrated?)  Here they are, giving me what I want, and I’m rejecting it!

Why am I here in the first place?   Why am I in this place at this time?  It is because I wasn’t happy.  Am I happy now?  Happier, yes.  But I think I’ve forgotten how to be happy lately.  I’ve forgotten how to just be.  To enjoy life.  To not become my job.  I am NOT my job.

It’s time to remember.

P.S. Spiritual guides; I’m sorry.  I do trust you.  Please continue to guide me.  I’ll try to listen better.
