OK, I’m not a doctor. But right now we have a moment to receive a remedy which, once a upon a time, a doctor might have offered us.
Notice the word offer. We have an opportunity to take in bits of information about what we need to do. To heal.
We don’t have to – we could scrap the curiosity and stuff our faces with cake. But I’m pretty sure many us are well versed in self soothing. So it’s important that we use this moment for something greater – like an adventure into the depths of ourselves to discover something powerful.
Sounds intense, but don’t freak out.
There’s ways to make the woo-ness practical. And there’s a way to use the intel we’re capable of receiving, as we shuttle through the continuous changing landscapes of our life experiences.
So we suffer less, and feel more empowered throughout the changes.
“I’m grateful for change as it teaches me how to left go.”
In this moment, the inner mining is easier than it used to be. You’ve got readier access to intel that’s usually buried deep.
So how do we get this information?
Time for practicality. For how-to. Because on top of this really cool, nebulous energy we are currently enmeshed in that really wants to offer us gold nuggets, we are also socked into another vibe that’s demanding we be practical AF (It’s the north node in Taurus. I’ll save it for another post.)
We need to merge the seemingly impractical with the practical. And I’m suggesting we do that by mining our dreams for intel.
Maybe you’re not a big dreamer. Maybe you just don’t pay much attention to stuff like that – “What’s the point? They’re just dreams, Susan!”
Ok – that’s one take. But if you wanna utilize the woo to be your own doctor, and begin to understand & treat the root cause of your struggles, dreams are where it’s at.
This is obviously a really huge topic, so I’m just going to start with one powerful principle of dream analysis for now. And maybe go into more later. Who knows.
Dream analysis for self doctoring
Consider that every main player in your dream is an aspect of You.
Your unconscious is trying to show you an element of your own psyche that you’re not conscious of in your waking state.
If we consider that our dreams are a space where our unconscious can freely communicate with us, without the barrier of the awake state ego blocking the messaging, then we can begin to understand how powerful it is to be curious about the people & creatures that show up in our dreams.
For example, when an animal shows up in your dreams, it often represents something primal within that needs to be tended to.
So let’s say a tiger was in your dream, and it was tied up or caged. This is representative of a primal element of you – creative energy – that you are not allowing to live and be free. It’s suffering through restriction, and the task is to allow that creative life force energy to exist in your day to day waking life.
Simply put, what lights you up? What makes you feel alive? Start doing it in some capacity. It’s possible to be practical & creative. And it’s necessary for your health to discover how.
Another example could be the appearance of an ex who rejected you being representative of an element of your inner self that you are rejecting. A simple question you could ask yourself is, what are the ways I am rejecting myself? What are the ways I am not loving myself? Being dismissive of myself?
Start writing down your dreams.
Don’t judge if you can’t remember much. Every little bit has value. And the more you pay attention to your dreams, and take the time to write them down, the easier they will come to you moving forward.
It’s like your unconscious gets the memo it wants to hear: “Oh snap! Dave’s gonna start paying attention to me?! Let’s DO this!” And then your dreams start to become more expansive and you begin to remember them with greater clarity.
Consider the elements that stand out for you. But don’t go overboard.
Don’t try to force a diagnosis or understanding. You gotta stay flowy with your dreams. This is how this current energy works, too. If you try to force things it won’t work with you as well – you kind of restrict the flow.
Alright. That’s my offering on how to work with this current vibe. It’s really powerful energy that doesn’t come around very often. And it’s here to help us.
Work with the flow of it. Don’t push too hard. Just see what comes up. And honor every aspect of what you discover – and yourself.
