Despite plenty of hours of sleep I have been waking exhausted. By the sheer number of dreams I have been having I would venture to guess I haven't been slipping into deep sleep much.
When last night's dreams kicked up full of emotion, vulnerability, and frustration I sent to work. Passively playing witness does not seem to be moving the process along and so it was time to take control of my dreams. Stepping in I went from frustrated victim to determined participant.
I entered a contest not focused on winning but focusing on showing who I am and what I believe. I guided the group through how to take a pain and find a gratitude. I led them on not only a gratitude journey but on how to bring relaxation techniques into daily practice and how to put both to use when grief strikes. In my dream I could feel my strength returning.
I'm grateful for the past week of processing through my dreams. I'm grateful for the journey they took me on while I slept. I'm grateful to take control back last night. I'm grateful for the turn of events in my dream. I'm grateful to use the techniques I know to make a difference. I'm grateful to have felt the power and knowledge showing through as I coached the people in my dream.
What are your dreams telling you? Are you a passive witness to your dreams or an active participant?
May today remind us that there is always a time to bear witness and a time for action. May we choose what best suits our needs and fills our hearts. Have a beautiful day!
