Yesterday right before bed I said in a loud, semi-demanding voice: “I would really like a very easy dream! One, so straight-forward there is no way I couldn’t interpret it. So blatantly obvious. . .” blah blah blah, you get the picture.
I got a beautiful gift: another flying dream.
I dreamt that people were out walking, at various points along a walk, and I wanted to show them I could fly. I had a way of taking off to get momentum, and I used my arms, as a bird might use wings. I made sure I did it in front of them so they could see it — I could fly! I soared all around these rooms, one with a high ceiling, kind of looking like a converted barn with many comfortable sofas/big cushiony chairs. One seat in particular had a wicker composition with a high, rounded back and a hugely wide cushiony seat, and it was tucked away a bit, facing the wall. A friend joked that that was my seat, my special place. As I was flying I remember my arms tiring a bit, and I realized it was because I hadn’t been flying much. I needed to work those muscles back up.
Flying tends to be a symbol for freedom (nothing holding you down/back). I was particularly struck by the part where I was aware that I had to build my muscles back up. That is the message I take away from my dream: I need to work those muscles. The “muscles” could refer to one of 3 things for me: my intuition/psychic ability, my spiritual composure, or my imagination. All are pretty related and can be developed through each other.
This may connect to my recent search for answers regarding my psychic abilities, but I think it’s more likely connected to the experience I had last night.
Last night I was at work, and a situation came up where a client was unhappy, and I wasn’t sure how to make the client happy while also preserving the regulations of the workplace (which were there for good reason!) I became very stressed and disoriented and expressed this to another person at work. Her response altered my perspective and helped me find a positive way to view the situation.
Soon after our interaction, a client walked in. We worked out some scheduling and then she mentioned my recent trip to Spain and started to talk about her trip to Ireland and Scotland. I told her that I’d never been to Ireland but that my grandparents in-law had been giving my fiancee and I some flack, since I’d traveled quite a bit to other places, and Brian is half-Irish! I said that maybe she could convince me to go, and she did an excellent job! The way she described her experience (an off-the-beaten-path one) took me right there, walking up the Cliffs of Moher and hearing about all of the generations of families living along the cliff and also taking a bus tour through Glasgow and seeing where the royals got crowned! She said she’d love to hear more about my trip to Spain. I could see the glow about her face after sharing her experiences with me. I’m sure it was a mirror reflection of my own.
I realized a great sense of peace and contentment had settled upon me. Something, I didn’t experience too often but that surpassed my normal states of being. Soon after, I checked my mail, and I had a message from Brenda Large from the Joliet Junior College Continuing Education Department. She wrote that she had just met a gentleman who had written about his experiences on the Appalachian trail who did presentations on his experience. “This made me think of you. I believe you had quite a journey this summer. Is this something you would be interested in as a seminar? I would think you could fill a two hour seminar with tales from the trek and photos.” She asked me if I would be interested. “Yes! Definitely interested! Great idea!” I responded.
Interesting timing, no?
Much love and many blessings. ❤
