Nicknames

Monday through Friday I have a clerical warehouse position, and I wear comfy around-the-house clothing to work because A)I can and B) Used books can be REALLY dirty and dusty.

So, I wear a lot of T-shirts.  I have T-shirts from my bike trips, T-shirts from all of those 5Ks (walking) that I did that awesome summer when my friend decided she wanted to sign up for every event possible and needed some company, and old softball and volleyball jerseys from the high school years.

As a young kid I think we just got our name on our jersey (Karl); as an adult I became “TK” (a nickname from high school that stuck).  But in those in-between years we got creative and picked our own names.  One of my earliest jerseys displayed my pride in my quickness — “SPEED DEMON.”  (Yes, somehow that fit on my jersey — just barely.)  And then apparently I got really whimsical and metaphysical.

One day when I was picking what to wear for the day, I stopped for a moment and stared at the name on the jersey: “DREAMER.”  That’s an interesting volleyball nickname.  Sure, it works — it could work for anything — but, synchronistically (new word), I am the Dream Awareness Coordinator for my school branch; so, it struck me as funny and particularly applicable. I picked up another one: “BELIEVER.”  Also, appropriate for sports, I guess — you need to believe in your team.  But it’s also something I’m really focused on now in my life: faith.  I’m beginning to know the power of the mind — thoughts in particular — and I’ve realized the antidote to my doubts is the seeds of faith.  Next is “QUASAR.”  (Not sure what it means?  I wasn’t either!)  This one is a funny story.  I needed a nickname, and I did one of those flip-through-the-dictionary-and-point-to-a-word things, and that’s what I got.  Seemed like a funky word, but I loved the definition.

Google says:

a massive and extremely remote celestial object, emitting exceptionally large amounts of energy, and typically having a starlike image in a telescope. It has been suggested that quasars contain massive black holes and may represent a stage in the evolution of some galaxies.

What a secret and nerdy way to say I’m a star!  And what metaphysical, symbolic potential!

And  “SPARK.”  That light image again.  What comes to mind with “spark”?  Light, ignition, motivation, beginnings.  This ties in with lightworking; this is what I am experiencing through metaphysics; and this is what I want to help others to experience.

So, there you have it — dreams, faith, and light.  Proof that your soul does know its purpose from the very beginning.  I don’t remember why I picked some of those names, but my soul has known the path all along.

Some Quick Dreams: Affirmations, Coffins, Parties, and Babies

I’ve been gone for quite some time as I’ve been involved in getting ready for graduation from the first cycle of the School of Metaphysics, and I’ve been preparing for Dream Awareness Weekend.  I miss posting.

Here is a quick summary of 3 dreams I’ve interpreted (with some advice) over the past month — though I’ve still been remembering my dreams pretty much every day!

Dream #1:

My friend is over.  She is sitting on the couch.  She mentions something about not being allergic.  I am surprised she’s not.  Room resembles parents’ basement.  I am sitting on the floor.  I think cats will probably come over.  Zelda does.

Interpretation:

At first I had no idea what this dream meant.  I was trying to figure out what aspect of me this friend represented.  Then I went back over the day before, and I remembered that I had tried using affirmations that day.  I realized that this person was a very supportive, affirming person, and that she had represented this part of myself that I had just used.  She had felt comfortable in my mind, not repelled, she was sticking around.

Dream #2:

Burying a coffin.  We want to bury it in this grassy area, but we know there are other coffins there.  We can see their shape in the ground. 

Interpretation and Application:

I was really stumped on this dream and got a lot of interesting ideas from a lot of different people.  The main idea is that the focus is death, which is change.  There is a part of me that has changed, and I am seeing other parts of me that have also changed.  Since I never see any bodies, I am not fully aware of exactly what has changed within me.  Again, I need to be still and conscious of what I’m going through during the day.  Then I can identify the changes going on within me.

Dream #3:

There are parties.  We go to one.  There are more, and I want to go.  (Halloweeen?) Costume party.  I am debating which to go to and whether or not to go.  I see posts about it on Facebook.  I’m trying to think of what to wear.  I’m hoping someone will go with me (my fiancee or sister?  not sure which).  But they don’t want to go.  (Someone texting me about it?)

Interpretation:

A part of me wants to get to know myself better, to try out new expressions of myself and to expand and to grow.  Another part of myself is ready to turn in, to rest and give myself time to withdraw and process.  I shared this dream in a dream workshop, and my teacher added that this is duality, and that it is a good thing.  There is a time for expanding and for contracting.  We need both.

Dream #4:

I knew I’d had twins (but I never saw them in the dream, in fact, by the end of the dream I realized I didn’t remember being pregnant, didn’t remember going into labor, etc).  Cindy asked me about the baby, and I was unable to give her much detail.  I thought one was a little chattier than the other.  It began to bother me that I knew nothing about the babies and that they weren’t even with me.  I wanted to get them.  I talked to my mom about breast feeding.  She was telling me not to worry, there were other options, and I was like “I haven’t even tried breastfeeding yet! Let me try and see if they even latch on!”

Interpretation and Application:

The focus of the dream is the babies.  I want to care for them, I want to nurture them, and feed them, but I have no idea where they are.  I asked Dr. Barbara about symbols that you never actually see in my dream and mentioned the babies.  The babies are ideas.  Since I don’t actually see them, they are ideas that are kind of floating around somewhere out there, but I’m not fully connected to them, aware of them.  I’m not able to nurture the ideas and help them to grow because they have not fully materialized in my mind yet.  I need to be still and receive the ideas fully so that I can fully visualize them and help them to mature.

 

Please be sure to check out The School of Metaphysics branches page  during April 25th-27th 6pm until the end of Sunday night to find the branch nearest you (although any of the schools will be fine!) and to get your dream interpreted for free.

Our ideal is that every individual be able to connect to his/her subconscious mind through remembering, interpreting, and applying the messages from dreams.  This is the first step!

What’s On Your Mind?

It is not important what you do.  It’s important who you are becoming.

You are your thoughts.

What are you thinking about today?

Are you even aware of what you are thinking?

You create your own reality.

What kind of day have you created for yourself today?

Happy Thoughts

5 “Happy Thoughts of the Day”, starting with the most recent:

5. Pumpkin Ice Cream (Non-Dairy!)  Brian made it with frozen pumpkin puree, frozen bananas, Shaklee 180 (vanilla), almond milk, pumpkin spice, and vanilla extract.  (Lovely 10pm snack! :-))

4. Reading Bossypants on the couch.  I have renewed this book (as well as 2 others) 3 times!  Which means I’ve had it for over a month and a half.  And before tonight I had about 5 pages read to show for it.  FINALLY, I got to it today, and I’m really enjoying it.  I was having a bit of a love/hate relationship with it for a while:  “Fey is the funniest ever!. . .  Ooo. . .  that one was mean; maybe not my sense of humor. . .”  But then I jumped around in the book and realized it was indeed pretty funny overall, starting up again.  I can totally see why my improv teacher recommended it.  Fey makes some very good improv points.  Besides the enjoyability of this particular book, it is also so nice to just be sitting here, reading, for fun.  I’m finally allowing time for it.  (Gotta finish this post so that I can get back to it!)

3. Got some important things accomplished today, simple things: post office, buying toilet paper, and getting the litterbox completely cleaned out (TMI?), but I am celebrating the small things!

2. Animal love.  Got some bonding time in with the animales today.  Chased Link around a bit when he was in his crazy mood and cuddled with all 3 of my lovies at some point or another throughout the day.

1. Did some exploring and decided I want to be a dance therapist!   I’m afraid to get too excited about it —  because I have the tendency to get super excited about something and have second thoughts soon after — but I read up on the profession, and it sounds right up my alley, combining something I enjoy (physicality/dance!) with helping others (therapy).  I’m going to talk with Cindy about it during our next phonecall.

What are your “happy thoughts” today?

More Wandering Thoughts

Could not get any work done today.  Resistance was too great.  Did have a tutoring session.  And house-cleaned.  That’s work, right?  Great gathering.  Glad it worked out today.  Went from Nim’s Island to Vanilla Sky just now.  Both bizarre movies but in different ways.  Both enjoyable in a way and in a way — not.  But I like them.  Very creative films.  I tire of films and shows that are all the same: full of the same drama, following the same script.  Happy to be here, close to the one I love.
