LABOR, BABIES, & MOTHERS

In the US, we just celebrated Labor Day. In the spirit of the holiday, having been in labor (pardon the pun) for an extended duration, I’m pleased to announce the birth of my new baby – an artistic expression through images and words. Inspired by our AWAKENDREAM Coming Home to MySelf Retreat.

MotherMasterMOTHER

Mother of cycles,
you are eternal Home to me;
sisters, aunts, mothers, grandmothers,
you’re there for me, always – no matter how far away I fly;
Mother Mary, Mother Earth, Mother of Galaxies,
Mother in my dreams,
you continually cycle back to me…
bringing me home, dancing me home, singing me home,
with empathy, painted – with colorful drops of Mother.

When I can’t keep up,
or cannot make the climb, you are the charger of my soul;
when I fall,
You bleed, and reveal your scar so I can learn self-healing;
when I lay broken,
you show me flowers that broke open too,
erupting into gardens of inner beauty;
Whenever I call,
Mother in my dreams,
you continually cycle back to me..
bringing me home, dancing me home, singing me home,
with empathy, painted – with colorful drops of Gaia. Continue reading

Dreaming with Tigers, Lions and Dogs, OH MY!

Last week I had a dream that I was at a friends house. They have many dogs in their home. The owner of the house is a hunter. I am sitting in their living room and I have my two little puppies on my lap. The other dogs are laying down on the floor near me. Everything seems normal until a tiger and some mountain lions start circling us. They tell me they are trained and domesticated but I am still scared. One cougar starts playing with my puppy Luke but he is being too rough. I put my hand out to get him off and the cougar starts playing with my hand and biting it like a puppy bites to play. He thinks he is being gentle but he is not. I look down at my hand and it is being destroyed. I push his giant head away trying to get him off and then I wake up! EOD (end of dream)

I didn’t quite understand this dream at the time but now several days later I am slowly putting the pieces together. Yesterday my husband chose an oracle card. The card was called FIRE underneath it said “Take responsibility for your power”.fire

Today I decided to research Mountain Lion medicine to get a better understanding but it wasn’t until I saw this that I realized how perfect the card FIRE fit with the cougar message, my dream and real life situations. I used http://dreamoraclecards.com/

Synchronicity – You can’t make this stuff up!

Yesterday morning, I dropped my daughter, Sky off at the airport. She was headed to Georgia to spend time with her best friend who moved there two months ago. My daughter is only 16 and this was her first time traveling completely alone. She had some anxiety but I knew she would be fine. I left her at the security line and went to the parking lot. Knowing my child I knew she needed some extra comfort. I jumped in my car and before starting it I said my prayers. I prayed for a safe flight, asking the angels to be with her and the flight crew etc… I finished off my prayer by asking my step dad Hector, who passed away a few years ago, to look out for her. To calm her down and be with her on this flight. I took a deep breath and now this mom felt a whole lot better. I started my vehicle and proceeded to exit the parking lot. I approached the ticket area where I would have to pay for parking. I fed my ticket into the machine and it takes it then spits it out, takes it again then spits it out. There is no one at the booth, so I pressed the button for assistance. Continue reading

How to Dream the Best Possible Dream — & My Surprise

I had thought it would be different. I’d believed my dream would be more grandiose. I’d carefully selected the inspirational phrases. I’d cut out photos of tropical paradises, lounge chairs, and escapades to exotic places. I had poetry, amazing yoga poses, fruitful opportunities and more, all sitting there, awaiting their turn, hoping for their own space in my world. You see, I was going to create my “dream board.” Creating my dream board is an endeavor that I undertake on a yearly basis. To create my dream board, I attempt to dream the best possible dream for myself, what I’d most like to experience in the year to come. I contemplate, dream, and imagine. Then I place the most exquisite words and the very best images onto my dream board collage where I can see it every day.

It’s interesting what happens when you allow yourself only one small poster board measuring 11 inches by 14 inches upon which you can place your most important dreams, the very best of all possible dreams, in every single aspect of your life. You might be surprised. Somehow, it brings your subconscious wishes into crystal-clear focus! Furthermore, it forces you to prioritize!! You’ll discover that only your deepest yearnings will find their space on your board.

I’ve found that my dream board has much more to show than what is on the surface. I view the images and phrases as if they were in a dream, you know, like the ones you have at night. When I do this, I look for double-meanings and repetitive themes. For instance, I could have Continue reading
