The answers to our deepest worries can be found in our dreams

The other day I was very stressed. My contract at work is ending, and through various other signs from the Universe I felt led to believe that my time at this company was done, and it was because I am meant to do something more creative, something greater with my life. I hate being trapped in a cubicle in a windowless building anyway. Well, two days ago I found myself living from a place of fear. A coworker gave me some unsolicited advice that morning that went something like, “If you don’t hurry up and find another healthcare job you will lose your car, your apartment, and you will starve.”

I  wrestled with fear all day and had spent the day in a state of anguish. I felt closed, small, trapped, helpless. Before bed, I sat down and meditated for just 10 minutes. It was late and I needed to get to sleep, but I wanted to clear my mind. Afterwards I asked my ancestors and the powers that be in the Universe to give me an answer that I was on the right path in sticking to my intuition that something greater awaits. Or, to show me if I really need to fight the good fight for the cubicle life.

That night I dreamt of a friend who is an artist and a collector of old Star Wars Figures, superheros and other toys. He was working an artistic job at a gallery of sorts where he had free reign creatively and to move about as he pleased. There was a sale of some sort on the upper level and when I ran into him, he was on his way downstairs with an action figure he had bought. He was taking it to a friend downstairs and he said excitedly, “He is gonna LOVE this!” He stuck his arm out and showed me the figure. It was two in one, attached to the same base and he told me how this was very rare. He was excited to share this gift with his friend and I felt joy as he got on the elevator and was on his way to deliver his gift. As the elevator doors closed, my alarm went off and in that still space just before waking, a nearly audible message came through from my guides, “We told you. It IS possible to find work that doesn’t feel like work!”

That’s what I have been praying for, diligently. To build on this message, I was told by a gifted reader many moons ago that it is my purpose in life to teach others to play. I’m still trying to work out the details of what exactly that means, but I know it will happen for me and I know it does not involve working in a cubicle.

My strength in my certainty was renewed and I was able to go into the following days with a clear mind and a renewed motivation to work on my creative endeavors, such as this blog. 🙂

Spirit Donuts are Fat-Free

Last night I sat at the kitchen table with my grandmother and my little sister. She offered us a donut, as this seems to be her pastry of choice the past few times we’ve seen her. She has always loved to serve us sweets, but apparently has taken a special liking to donuts in the afterlife.

My grandmother died over a decade ago. Does this mean that she is gone?  That I can no longer connect with her? Absolutely not! All matter is energy, condensed to a very slow vibration, and energy cannot be created or destroyed. So, while my grandmother has moved on to another plane of existence, she still exists.  I have found that is possible to access other planes through meditation, but I find that dreams are where I am able to connect most easily with those souls who have passed on. 

Sometimes before I go to sleep, especially if I have a problem weighing on my mind, I will ask my ancestors to provide guidance. My dreams almost always provide the answer.  I read an article once that said the dreams we have through most of the night are pretty much just the “brain dump” where the brain files, stores and processes the events that happened during the day.  It went on to say that the dreams you want to pay attention to happen just before you wake up. I have found that to be precisely when I receive the “answer” dreams.

Last night I didn’t ask for guidance, it just came. My sister and I were visiting with my grandmother and they were laughing about something as she served us the donuts. I interrupted them to point out that I don’t remember her ever serving us donuts when she was alive on Earth, and we all laughed about how much she really likes them now.  She knows I prefer to stick to more of a whole-foods diet and don’t eat many sweets.  So, she told me that I can eat all the donuts I want in the Spirit World because Spirit Donuts are not made of processed foods or sugar, they are made of love.  Suddenly I felt myself waking up, it was time to go. As I was leaving, she kindly noted that I have been neglecting my writing, neglecting to record my metaphysical experiences so that they may help others who are on a similar path. I felt the message as she handed me a donut for the “road.”

I woke up laughing to myself about the concept of Spirit Donuts. I invite you to ask your ancestors tonight as you go to sleep what wisdom (or treats!) they may have to share with you.
