I sleep hard and have an equally hard time remembering my dreams. I used to remember them, every bit of them as a child. Some of them came true in the near future. I kept a journal for years of my life about my dreams, and when I would finish one I would burn it. That was my ritual for letting it out on paper than letting it go. In my dreams as a child I could fly and did often. I could also breath under water, and I loved that so much that I would try to do so awake and swallowed a lot of water, choked and laughed at myself sure I was missing something I did differently in my dreams. When I discovered that my animal totem is the whale I was not surprised as I have always been drawn to the water, meditated in water.
I also used to have nightmares. Very vivid and scary ones that would wake me up screaming in a sweat during my adult years. My ex husband used to always ask what I was dreaming about and I couldn't really tell him, it was a blur all I knew is someone was hurting me, someone in the shadows I could never see. Eventually I stopped dreaming. I was scared of nightmares so I would tell myself not to dream before I went to sleep. The nightmares came further and further apart as did my dreams, all of them.

About 3 years ago when all my suppressed childhood memories came rushing up from somewhere deep and dark I started to have the nightmares again and for the first time the ones hurting me were no longer vague, they were real and I remembered. I knew why I couldn't see all those years. I didn't want to, I had avoided that pain for so long that even in my dreams when it would demand to be dealt with there was a screen of blur blocking the memories that wanted healing.
Only now am I beginning to remember my dreams again, and I am doing so with intent. I am dreaming good dreams again and I want to know what they are telling me. Now that I am loving me, believing in me and my dreams. Believing in my ability to make my dreams come true I want to dream and dream and dream, haha.
Okay, so I have this idea that my dream could be our reality. I am starting here and for the past few days have been trying to figure it out how, you know. Figure out how to do it, where to start. My idea is in my heart but my mind seems to get it all messed up and verbalizing it even harder. The ideas I dreams about are so different than what I have seen in my life time. I think our mind is our own worst enemy sometimes.

So this morning while I was in the shower I started talking to Spirit. We had a great conversation. I love it when I am open to the voice inside of me I now know as Spirit. I asked Spirit... "how do I make my dream a reality?" Spirit said "Conceptualize It!" I said "Okay, wait what exactly does Conceptualize mean?" and Spirit said "Look it up!". Hahaha. I think Spirit takes much joy in the process of all things. We are so caught up on time, on visualizing the end result we sometimes forget that all steps getting there are needed, the good and the bad ones. All of it. I mean if we already were there we wouldn't have any reason to be here right?!?!.
I had a most awesome time with Mr. Marley this morning on the bike trail. I was bursting with love and I could feel it exploding out of me, it was way cool. We went really far today, almost too far. We made it all the way to the railroad tracks and I could see the buildings downtown and wanted to continue on so badly. However, the yellow light was letting me know we should turn around and we did apparently just in time because my chair died just as I parked it next to One Love close enough to charge it. Phew!

I have a feeling today is going to Rock! I created a group on Facebook this morning called "And the good news is..." for positive news, posts and conversations that generate sharing good news rather than bad and depressing news. I thought I would share that with you all and anyone who wants to join hit me up on Facebook to join, we would love to have you. Here is the link...
I also wanted to share a video with you that I watched last night.
You don't have to believe this, I mean why would you? The reality you live in tells you not to!
Here's a thought (All Pun Intended) What if it is true?
I mean seriously, assuming this is possible would you rather continue in your current reality believing you are helpless in a horrible world and being held back by that fear of helplessness or would you rather believe you can change your reality with positive love fueled thoughts.
I'm just sayin!
Thank you for joining me today, I love you all from a place of excitement for the positive changes taking place in the world today, gratitude for the awakening taking place by the masses and certainty that the Universe is unfolding as it is meant to. Have a most blessed day.
