from one of my 1980’s sketchbook-dream journals
I was recently the guest of Dr. Marcia Emery on her wonderful VoiceAmerica radio show, The Partnership of Intuition and Dreams. (To hear the show, click here)We spoke about Spirit Guides and how they often appear in dreams. I described a very powerful dream I had where I was guided (and given real empowerment) to shift my life in an enormous way. If you have dreams where you are being told something, shown something or instructed in anyway, it is so worth paying close attention to the message. I really do believe in our core, deeply within our subconscious, we have an eternal source of love and life. We truly are that source, and that source animates our bodies as we practice our free will as humans making choices and responding to the world around us.
The dream above was when a Frog Shaman appeared and told me off. Spirit Guides and angels can be very clear, decisive and forthright. You know to listen. This guide appeared during a time that I didn’t know if I’d find my true love and be able to have children. I really did want that, but had not found a man I was truly in love with. I wore a ring I got in Ireland with two hands holding a heart. I was told if the point of the heart faced me, I was already taken. If the point of the heart faced outward on my finger, I was available. Constantly, this ring reminded me that I was available for Mr. Right. It put me in the “it has not happened yet” mode or dimension. The emotional energy I was fluffing up inside me was one of lack rather than abundance, but I was not very conscious of that. So one night I was in a dream, standing by a country road on a beautiful country day. I saw down the lane, two figures walking and talking. Gradually they came closer. I remained on the side of the road. As they got closer, I could see that one of them, the one walking on my side of the road, was a Frog Shaman. How did I know? He was in a robe and had a great Frog headdress on. He was authoritative and had a very important presence about him. As the two strolled by me, deep in conversation, the Frog Shaman turned his head toward me and said, “Take that ring off right now!”
I awoke with a start. It was morning anyway. I jumped out of bed, took the ring off and never wore it again. I realized that this Frog Shaman Spirit Guide (part of my unconscious?) guided me to disengage from the emotion of lacking and wanting, from pain and/or fear, basically. From that day on, I felt a weight of expectancy and anxiety lift from me. In good time, I met the true love of my life.
