I often have dreams that are incredibly vibrant and stay with me after waking. I know these dreams are different to my usual “run of the mill” type dreams that I never remember afterwards. I have a book where I write down the dreams that strike me as ones I should remember. Should I ever decide to write fantasy/horror I have some terrific plots in that book 😉 Sometimes I look up the meanings of some of the dreams that I have. At times they make sense to me and at other times I just shrug and laugh (particularly the time my dream referred to my sexual inadequacy. I mean really????)
On January 1st I awoke after a most amazing dream. It had the ocean, pirates (the Johnny Depp kind), sailors, rocks, rolling green hills, neon lights of a big city on the horizon, downward slopes, amazing architecture, full pantries, household renovation, my cat and many other strange and amazing things that can only occur in dreams. It took two pages to write down my dream. I looked up the meanings of various things and this took another two pages of writing. If my dreams were trying to tell me something then I am pleased that they did. None of it was bad, in fact it was all good. And it left me excited at the prospect of a wonderful coming year.
Once I’d written down the interpretations of this, I reflected on the many blessings in my life. There are so many. I am surrounded by love, creativity and joy on a daily basis. You can’t get much better than that.
So I am working with the theory that you begin the year how you intend to continue. In that case, I will continue to dream – not only when I am asleep though. Waking dreams are just as important. I will continue to count my blessings and live each day with gratitude. I will continue to be creative. I will continue to eat will (with the occasional treat). I will continue to love and care for those I both love and am fond of. I will continue to blog. I will continue to be inspired. I will continue to be there for others. I will continue….
This has been a great exercise in self reflection and it is one that I am glad that I did.
Blessings to you all. Have a blessed day 🙂
