Dreamin' Demon

The dream I had the other night was the sort of dream that would wake most people. Believing it was inspired by my rather unhealthy meal way too close to bed time, I didn’t think much of it. I jotted it down because part of me wondered why I was visited by a demon.

Most characters in your dreams are really just mirrors, reflecting back to you something about yourself. They play their part so that you can learn about yourself. The dream nagged me as I couldn’t wrap my head around an aspect of myself being demon-like.  Was it a sugar monster or a caffeine fiend?  What about me was 7 foot tall, greenish-gray, gross, and cocky? The fact that I was not scared in the dream caught my attention as well. Evidently, slaying demons was old hat to my dream self. I had banished this one twice before.

Do I confidently slay my personal demons? Well, sometimes, but that didn’t feel like the complete answer. Looking further for clues, I considered what the demon had said. He talked in a deep growly voice and when I jokingly asked him what his poison was this time, he laughed.  “Oh girly, it doesn’t matter if I tell you because you are never going to figure it out,” he said.  “Grass and vodka,” the demon added.

I considered him telling me the answer could be a trick. Of course, this time, he was going to be much more difficult to expel. As he lumbered around pulling doors of hinges, even though I told everyone not to lock the doors because he’d just pull them off, I hid in the basement planning my next move involving grass and vodka.

Tracing my thoughts and questions leading up to the night of the greenish-gray ghoul, my mind had been working on how to ground myself every day and how to use flower essence.  Aha! I got you my scary messenger! In order to fight off unpleasant things I need to put my feet in grass every day and by adding flower essence to vodka ( I make an air freshener this way.) I can put myself the right mood.  (vodka or other alcohol is a good way to keep essential oils.)

To banish him I stood barefoot on top of a hill holding a vodka bottle. As he swooped down upon me I held my ground and threw the bottle at him.  "Oh crap!" He shouted as he burst into flames. 

#1 Ground yourself every day- standing barefoot in the ocean or on grass is best. Any natural surface will do, even wood. Breath for a few moments and visualize yourself connecting to the earth.

#2 Support Yourself with essential oils- go to the oil section in the natural food store near you. Pick out what scent appeals to you or pick one based on a aliment you have. I love orange for the bathroom as orange oil detracts bugs and brightens your mood. See the photo below. Massage oil into your hands for a beautiful self care ritual. (Check label to see if it can be used at full strength or needs to be cut with another oil like coconut or olive.)

How to use Signs and Symbols as Guidance

 

Numerology is my favorite symbol to interpret. It is numbers as symbols that has been guiding me the most. Yesterday I got 444, twice! While working on the signs and symbols post for this week, 444 showed up a second time.

 

Here are some other ways signs and symbols come to me:

  •       Dreams
  •       Doing readings for others
  •       Books
  •       Songs
  •       Tarot and Oracle card readings
  •       Yoga
  •       Meditation
  •       Astrology

    When I see repeated numbers it reminds me to pay attention. (R is for Repeated Numbers coming up 4/20!) This practice has led me to all sorts of synchronicities. If this ‘information getting’ appeals to you, start with one from the above list. If you can remember parts of your dreams or it really peaks your interest, start there. If you mediate regularly, ask a question right before you meditate and see what comes up for the next 24 hours. Buy a tarot deck and play.  If you have a 3 in your Life Path, write or draw and see what comes. My practice started over ten years ago with dream interpretation.

I’d like to take you through one of my current processes in getting messages.  I watch Psychics on TV because I like to study how they operate. A young man does readings for famous people while drawing in a note book. This makes sense to me as I have allowed my writing to be a channel and I too create doodles as a form of meditation.

I will present the rest of this post in a video format.

HERE:

Tricia Gunberg using the symbols of the Crow, Raven, 555 to Illuminate guidance for the next 12 months.

 It will include all the signs and symbols for the week of March 13- March 21, 2018 as I believe this to be a very potent week as it will set the energy for the next 12 months. (March 22, according to Astrology is the beginning of the year.) Review your Personal Year number to see how it coincides with this week’s message.

The symbols I will discuss:

Where in your life do you need more love?

One way to see this is where you have frustration, can you ‘love’ on the frustrating situation/person? To be honest, all of this resonates for me. My entire journey has been about loving myself more and recently, loving myself unconditionally.

Imagine a world where everyone thinks and feels:
“There is nothing you can do to make me stop loving you.”

 Can we offer unconditional love to others and ourselves?

 

I see I am near 444 words- ha! So I’m stopping.

Love and Light,

A Gift for Yourself

This could make you sad or even cry, if you're not in the mood for that today, come back another time. It is an older post with an update.

I awoke recently with a very pleasant feeling. The feeling was almost overwhelming. It was similar to falling in love. Bliss, maybe? Before I opened my eyes, I search my brain for what could have stirred up such an emotion.

A wonderful dream.

I play it over in my brain, putting it in order. Three men stared in my dream. One is an old classmate, Curt. The second man, I do not know, appeared only one time standing between the other two men. The last is a very tall blond, we have just started dating. I know he was the one who sent me into bliss.

I am in a dimly lit tunnel. Everyone around me is rushing. I feel the need
to get somewhere too.  A familiar face comes into view, it is my friend Curt.
He is here to help me.  But no! He violently slams me to the ground.
Everyone is gone and I cannot get to where I need to go. I am sad,
broken and naked. Aware of my nakedness, I search for clothing but
cannot lift my arms to put it on. The tall blond man appears.
He helps me to my feet. Standing naked in front of him,
he dresses me. There is a smile on his face.  
I am in a clothing store, the three men appear at the front. I notice it is Curt,
another man and the blond I had been dating. Memories of the tunnel
fill my head. I want to avoid Curt but I need to avoid the blond man
more. He had seen me sad, broken, and naked. Embarrassment
and shame rush in when I recall the smile on his face.
I sneak around toward the exit, I am almost there when
someone grabs my arm. It is the blond man. He is smiling that
smile again. It feels different this time. “You are smiling that smile,
what does it mean? Why do you smile at me like that?” He says;
“I have seen all of you; your pain, your hurt, your broken bones.
I have seen all of you and…
I love you.”

The dream ends with him about to kiss me thus creating that blissful feeling upon me as I woke. The men represent my past, present and future. Curt represents my past self, the one that slammed me down to the ground when I needed to do something important. The man I don’t know, is my current self. The blond man is my future self. He represents the bliss I can feel if I allow myself to be vulnerable.

I found many meanings in this dream but the main message is clear: your future holds bliss if you can allow yourself to be vulnerable. What a gift I have been given with this message.

Give yourself a gift and listen to your dreams, both in wake and sleep.

Update: The past has recently slammed down again in wake because I allowed myself to be vulnerable. The pain from allowing yourself to be vulnerable (true authentic self) is not for sissies. It helps if you think of the pain as not being yours(detachment). Treat it as if it does not belong to you. Observe it without judgement.  Allow it, as you would a toddler, to have its tantrum. It will pass. It will pass. Your vulnerability has a beautiful side effect. It helps you see who you can trust. (yourself) Feelings of irritation and annoyance with people and situations have already clued you in but you have not learned to trust nor understand all of your emotions/feelings yet- do not be angry at yourself for this realization. If you have had many warnings,do not be upset about this either. It is your job to love and trust…it is your natural state, a blissful state- yes?   

Vulnerability, if you let yourself be so, will set you free.
