I had some interesting dreams last night that really made me think. A couple were set at a hotel and the one I’ll share with you begins with me going to my room and seeing that there was already a woman in there occupying it. She seemed a little off somehow, not really with it. I tried to just go along with it but I became more and more uncomfortable with the situation.
Then I started to experience the world as she did. When my husband walked away from me and towards the door, he seemed to disappear from my sight. I seemed to be viewing the world from a different light spectrum than a human usually sees. It was disconcerting to me. It was a little how I might imagine a bad acid trip to be. My reality bubbled in front of me with colors that you don’t normally see in the air in front of you, like mixes of green and then yellow.
I decided I was done trying to be okay with the situation and asked the hotel staff to get me a different room. They seemed to take it very seriously and at first I believed it was for my benefit that they were upset about it, but as I listened on I found out that the woman was the wife of someone important to the hotel and I even detected a bit of protectiveness and affection for the woman. They were more upset at the woman being disturbed then in the inconvenience it had caused me.
Something about that calmed me inside and felt right. It felt like something that has gone missing in the world and it felt good to be put back in my place in a manner of speaking. All of my dreams pointed to this more humbling place as well as showing me how I’ve veered away from myself a bit and am not as accepting of all of me as I should be. I need to be more soft and compassionate for the human condition and the many things we face during our adventures here.
It felt good to be reminded in the most subtle and loving of ways of what’s more important and to be pointed back to my center where I belong. It’s easy to go off track in the hectic pace of the current world and I don’t enjoy life as much when I lose sight of what actually matters down here.
I also feel that it’s more important than ever to be aware of this. Time seems to be short and I feel the best thing I could be doing right now is getting more in touch with my heart and soul and things beyond the material world as we are constantly reminded everyday that it isn’t forever. We are always on borrowed time.
Until next time, take care!
