A couple of weeks ago I had a dream about someone who was struggling for life because they could not catch their breath. This is someone I actually know, who has in a round about way had an impact on me, having been present for some very major events in my life. As such a presence I have learned over the years to hold them somewhat close – like family. They on the other hand have no idea. Not a thought! In my dream I ran hither and fro to find someone to help save their life. Then I woke up. I’m not close enough to this person to really know anything about what goes on in their life, however living in a small town some news does travel around. Talking to another friend tonight, we discussed dreams and their possible deeper meaning. Later it came to me that the person I dreamed about had recently lost a pet… a pet that had a mission, a purpose that had very deep meaning for the object of my dream, and was very close to succeeding in that purpose. The loss was senseless and helpless. The entire communities feelings were palpable. Being empathic, I felt the empathy, sympathy, and for some the “attitude” or “opinion” in many cases not favorable… the primary feeling of the town though was one of sadness. The dream I had occurred a few days after the pets demise. I had wished that I could offer some sort of support to help with the pain of loss. But that opening is not available to me. Now it makes sense. I could feel the persons pain and the communities awareness like it was water touching my skin. Feeling helpless to help. So in my dream I scampered around trying to find help to save a life, not really being able to make a difference. Why such a sad story for Thankful Thursday? Because I realize that I still am connected, that I feel so much more of my surroundings. Something I thought I had shut down before moving to Colorado. But my connection to other living things, and people is very much alive and searching for a way to express itself. If only in my dreams for now. I feel like I’m able to open back up and let the empathic juices flow again. So again my distant friend… you have impacted my life in yet another powerful way. I wish only the warmest and most generous journey in life for you.
On to a friend whom I am exploring for the second time in life. He too has given me a gift. Again tonight, while visiting about dreams with my friend, we also touched on other gifts that come in some very surprising packages. My renewed friendship with a very special man whom I’ve always held feelings for comes after a darker period in our relationship. Not really dark as in dank and perilous, but just non existent (12 years non existent). Recently he has shared with me several times that we are embarking anew, the past doesn’t exist for us. We are just meeting fresh and beginning a new journey. I’ve had to absorb this and fondle it… and it resonates with me. As my life each day is one of a new journey! My friend has freed me of the past. He has opened the gates to allow this mare to run free, take in the wind, soak up the sun and to come to him as she feels the need. A perfect symbiotic relationship. One of no encumbrances. How I wish others could find this path and the love and joy and most of all FREEDOM that comes with it. Thanks HANDSOME COWBOY… I really do find you (the person you are from your earthly soul to your captivating mind), so very alluring and safe. I wish only to offer the same in return.
I am so thankful for the realizations that came today, for my friend who traveled down the path with me toward these discoveries… HUGS Maryanne!
There is always something to find gratitude in. Even if it’s found in a dream… or offered as a place from which to begin anew.
