Using Literature to make sense of life and dreams

The Dream Well

Themes can help us to recognise the connection between dreams and waking life Themes can help us to recognise the connection between dreams and waking life

One of the core aims of understanding dreams is to recognise the connection they have with waking life.  Once you can start to do this you are well on the way to creating a life full of richness and meaning.  But recognising this connection can be one of the hardest things to do.  So many people ask me “what does my dream mean?” and my standard response is “only you can really know.”  An answer, I know, which is very unsatisfactory to most!  So I created The Dream Well, to help you become the expert in your own dreams.  One of the easiest ways to start decoding dream meanings, and the by far the most popular, is by identifying individual symbols, then trying to decipher what each particular symbol means to you personally.

But there is another…

The Buddha’s Four Noble Truths

Great post by Ms. Julianne~

Through the Peacock's Eyes

As I was working on my journaling and discussion for the next class in my Butterfly Journal workshop today, I went to an old blog post from 2012 to check on a reference I wanted to make about the Buddha’s Four Noble Truths. I had written four posts to cover this topic, one for each Noble Truth. Only a few people were reading this blog at the time, so I have decided to refresh these posts by putting them all together here into one post…

Noble Truth #1 –  There is Suffering (Dukkha)

sacred-india-tarot-buddha-5-of-disks Buddha images from the Sacred India Tarot deck

The Buddha developed the Four Noble Truths as a means for each of us to understand the nature of suffering, i.e. what suffering is, and to show us a way to overcome it. Though they are his teachings and guidelines, each of us still has to come to the awareness…

Fairy Friday

Celtic Music

I invite you to go into the image, go into your garden, listen to the beautiful music, and enter that place of magic. Create your fairy dust by breathing as a power plant. The 4 Point breath is a super generator. 1) Inhale through your nose, to say 6 to 8 counts, deep into the diaphragm, 2) hold the breath for the same 6 to 8 count, 3) release the breath from your mouth, to a 6 to 8 count. 4) NOW, hold the empty space for the 6 to 8 count, inhale through the nostrils at the same rate of 6 to 8 count, and repeat. You can tell when you have repeated the cycle enough times, start with 3, and see how it feels. It causes your cells to just vibrate. This is a breathing exercise so do as your health permits.

More on me later~~~…

Gentler

Raga Keeravani – Indian bansuri – Flute –

Hello friends. Monday last, while walking to class, my guide told me, “Be gentler, be more gentle with others, be more gentle with yourself. Be softer, drop the defensive walls built in childhood. Be vulnerable, show vulnerability.” “Say What? My inner child starts to panic a bit. I have let it ruminate in my thoughts over the past week, and reflecting upon the defensive tough, yet friendly egoic wall. As children we do what we have to do to survive. I am not inferring I had a tragic childhood, not at all, but events that impressed the psyche of the inner child. All things to observe and put into that alchemical fire of transmutation. Really trying to see myself from an outsiders perspective, by outsider I mean anyone who is not me. Wait you are all me, and I all you, therefore…

The Angel

Guarded by an Angel mild:

Witless woe was ne’er beguiled!

And I wept both night and day,

And he wiped my tears away;

And I wept both day and night,

And hid from him my heart’s delight.

So he took his wings, and fled;

Then the morn blushed rosy red.

I dried my tears, and armed my fears

With ten-thousand shields and spears.

Soon my Angel came again;

I was armed, he came in vain;

For the time of youth was fled,

And grey hairs were on my head.

William Blake

Massive Stellar Impact Thru Enormous Prominence February 1st-3rd

New Beginnings Guatemala

dby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
this month is making its entrance with a intense astrological event of high frequencies. Around the world, astronomers are monitoring a prominence of gigantic proportions hovering over the sun’s southeastern limb.Tomorrow on February 1st the half moon is only a few degrees from Mars in the constellation Libra, and two mornings later, on February 3rd, a hugely crescent moon passes by Saturn, only a few degrees away. All this is building up an energy field, that again is challenging the human race to a big step in our collective awakening.

Such an intense upgrade in divine light code information is always a gateway to reach the next possible higher level of Light Body Awakening. The changes created in the magnetic field off the human body, directly affect the pineal gland of our brains, thru the higher electromagnetic activity. It causes the gland to produce an…
