Dream Analysis

I had a really odd dream the other night and thought I would share along with my analogy at the end.

The dream:
A man shot me many times over and over again. There were a bunch of me’s.  This man came up to me in a drive way … shot me at extremely close range  (like so close he was nearly touching me) several times and on parts of my body that I wouldn’t die right away… and it wouldn’t be messy..  he shot me in a way that I would slowly bleed out… instead of dying instantly. I bled and I died… then it was like ground hog day and there I was again and he repeated… every time shooting me in the same way  up close but in different places on my body…

As he was planning his shots he would look up at me as if he was wondering if this spot or that would finally do the job.  It was like the different me’s were different parts of me or different aspects of me… like I was split in to a certain amount of layers. I did not count how many times this happened but it felt like at least half a dozen times.

One the last round I just laid there and he walked away. When he was gone I raised up and thought to myself  “good you are finally done now”. I was still there and still living. He had tried so many times and yet I kept coming back to life and living again and again. No words were even said… there was no interaction between us. Only me looking at him and watching him shoot me and him looking up at me into my eyes and wondering to himself if this round would be the last round. I could tell he was trying to work out in his own mind which were the best spots to shoot me that would actually make me dead without instantly killing me.

I could feel the cold, hard concrete beneath me and I could feel the blood leaving my body and draining down the pavement. I felt nothing toward this man, no emotion .. no feelings at all.. no love nor hate.. just nothing .. he was just there trying to kill me and no matter how many times he tried… I went down but always came back.

My analogy:
Do what you will to me but you’re not the one who will end me.. this is not how I will end. I continue to live… no matter what you do.. where you hit me or how many time you come back to do it again.  I will survive this! I choose to live!

Much more can be analyzed here but the this is the overall meaning for me. With all dreams there are intricate details that can be analyzed more specifically… but remember it is YOUR dream and it matters most how YOU felt about the dream. Many people will give different thoughts of interpretation based upon how they feel about the events you had. Getting an opinion of others can be helpful and maybe light a window of thought that you didn’t realize was there but still it is most important how YOU felt. How others analyze your dream is just opinion based on their own experiences. Trust your own feelings when it comes to your dreams.


It’s History

IMG_8776What happened yesterday is now in the past… lets work on today and tomorrow.

One of the hardest things to overcome is past events.

It has left it’s mark on us and imprinted in our minds … but the past is history.. it’s not right now.. right here or today. It’s done. It’s gone. It’s HISTORY!

The past is something that cannot be changed no matter how many times we relive it in our minds and no matter how many times we try to reword it or replay it’s many different scenarios that we would have liked to have seen happened.

Live for today and tomorrow.. live right here and now and move forward with what you have. When you live in the past,  you stall your living. Your future is put on hold and you find yourself in limbo. Stuck in the mud of yesterday with a stalled engine and no energy to pull yourself out of that muck!

It’s pointless really … allow yourself to realize this and move forward. Waste no more time on yesterday and instead invest in right now.

It’s time to turn around and look ahead .. march forward with the lessons learned to make right now and the days to come the best that you can.

Many Blessings,

Daily Insight

For today’s insight I draw 4 cards from the Vision Quest Deck…. (hmmmmmmmmm looking over at my cards laid out on the table there are only 3 …. looks like Spirit asks me to draw another) ok now.. YES 4 cards are now drawn!

Abundance: An endeavor that you have taken on has come to its full potential. The rewards from your hard work have been reaped or will be very soon. The harvest has filled the root cellar and now there is a time of emptying to make room for the next great harvest. You may feel the void as the emptiness takes place but don’t worry … it will be filled again naturally.

Sensuality: Be aware of your impact on others and act responsibly. Respect the vulnerability of others and know the boundaries. Use your intuitive gifts to guide you in a respectful manner. Doing this you honor others and yourself.

Stress: Life reflects what is going on internally. When life gets too chaotic and stressful take some time to step away and reflect… time is needed to find yourself again. Do what you know is right for the right reasons. Be mindful of how you react to your surroundings as well as how you react to your own inner knowing. Fighting against yourself gains you nothing but more stress and anxiety.

Courage: Courage is not just about being strong when tragedy and drama reign but also when you find that strength inside to follow your dreams and fulfill your destiny. Taking the necessary steps forward into the unknown takes great courage. You have it inside you to create greatness and manifest your dreams, your goals and whatever else you wish. Use this boldness to continue walking forward and you will find that your manifestations will seem to arise with ease.

Many Blessings,


When the Planets Line Up

This morning I had a vision and I’m still pondering the full meaning…

I was at some foreign event …. like in Africa,Australia or Mexico… the landscape was very dry and dusty.. not much greenery going on… just loads of dirt. I was there to guard and take photos so I was given this really long, huge gun and so I tried carrying both around with me while I was readying myself to take photos of the event. No idea what the event was I don’t think the event was the “real” point of me being there.

As  I was looking for a good vantage point to take photos I saw through a window tons of hummingbirds gathered in one area… they were all over the place! So I moved people out of my way… put the gun down saying I don’t need that thing and began taking photos. All the while I kept moving around to get different vantage points to capture this moment. Everyone else was watching the event .. I was more interested in these hummingbirds and why so many were there. Along with the ordinary hummingbirds were a handful of different rare hummingbirds as well. This amazed me and I was wondering why no one else was even concerned or noticing the hummingbirds.

Now a second even was taking place and as I was moving toward the second event to take photos of it I looked up and it looked as though there were 2 suns in the sky right next to each other. I thought it was my eyes playing tricks on me so I would look away and refocus again and again until I admitted to myself that yes indeed it does look like 2 suns are in the sky. Me with my camera in hand, grabbed it and began to focus to take photos .. anyone who has ever tried taking pics of the sun knows how hard that is to focus because of the brightness of the sun. So I fiddled and focused again and again to get a good shot and then realized it wasn’t two suns it was planets.

What I was seeing was lots of planets and as my camera kept refocusing on this event I saw more and more planets move into alignment. The events going on behind me continued as people were distracted by whatever that was and not paying one bit of attention to the miracle that was going on in the sky above us. It was absolutely amazing to see. All of the planets were perfectly falling right into alignment.

Here’s a little bit of info on the hummingbird from

Life is a wonderland of delight – darting from one flower to another, tasting the sweet nectar and radiating the colors of the rainbow. It’s a symbol for accomplishing that which seems impossible. It can teach you how to find the miracle of joyful living in your own life.

Hummingbird medicine is herbal; it shows us how to use flowers for healing. They teach us how to draw life essence from flowers and create your own medicines.

This totem reminds us to explore the past and extract the sweetness from it. It can help you find joy and sweetness in any situation. Grab joy as swiftly as you can. It reminds us to find the joy in what we do  and to sing it out.

Many Blessings,

The Fallen One

The Fallen One … that would be me.

I have fallen right under his spell
It’s in his eyes, his touch and his smile
From the very first moment we met… I fell.

It’s a magic like no other I’ve ever known
I’m quite taken and can barely breathe
His spell has me shaking right to the bone

Uncontrolled with wild abandon, My love for him does soar
To the heavens high above the Earth and the ground
It’s like a mighty lion inside me with a ferocious roar

Ready to give way at any moment… any time
My heart is the dam filled to the rim, ready to burst
Overflowing with love and passion, spouting words in romantic rhyme.

I am taken by his presence when ever he is near
Waiting breathlessly for him to be at my side
My heart is pounding so loud, everyone must be able to hear!

He has taken my heart and my breath away
My life is surly blessed in every way
I have fallen under his spell since the very first day

I am the Fallen One … who has fallen for The One!


Through Raven Eyes

Through raven eyes I see the past, the present and the times to come..
Looking beyond the veil into the dream world where spirits dance
Seeing what others miss, Oh what fun!

With raven ears I hear the whispers from ancient times.
The sounds of Mother Earth that to most are unheard.
With these raven ears the words are translated quite often with poetic rhymes.

With raven wings I soar the great blue heavens above
Drifting on the currents of healing light
Where perspective is in sight and my heart fills with never-ending love.

With a raven voice I call out on the winds of change and hope
With healing intent and frame of mind
To bring light and love with prayers to help you cope.

With raven eyes I see more than most do.
I see the beyond the mask, beyond the shield..
With raven eyes, I see the real YOU!

Many Blessings,

Time for Learning

It is time now to broaden your knowledge… be it on a particular subject of interest… be it a craft or hobby or be it learning more about the people around you … take the time to increase your knowing.

Take time to listen to the stories of other people’s lives.

Take time to learn more about the world around you…

Take time to understand things you thought you already understood.

There is more to know than what you think is obvious. There is the underlying truth beyond what you see. Open yourself up to understanding with all of your senses and you will find there is so much more to know. There will be an understanding that you did not even realize existed.

There will be some that understand this message fully and then there will be those who just don’t get it. Which are you?

Many Blessings,

When Creating For Others

Be sure that when you are creating pieces of art or craft items for others that you feel good yourself when doing the work. Your energy goes into everything you create and so when that item gets a new owner .. not only do they have your creation they also have a bit of your energy. You want to make sure that they receive good, healing and happy energy along with the item and not cruddy, negative or sick energy.

If you feel bad, if you are angry, depressed, hurt, sore, achy or any of the sort then that energy will go into whatever you are doing at the time. Be aware of your own feelings when creating or doing anything.

It’s ok to have a bad or off day… just be aware of what you are doing and how you feel .. whether realted or not that energy is there and it DOES go into whatever it is you are doing… even if you are simply cooking a meal.

Many Blessings,

Groundhog Day!!

Happy Groundhog Day!!!

Here are a few things you may NOT have known about the Groundhog!

A very difficult and powerful totem to have,
Groundhog is the symbol of opening fully to the dreamtime.
Of exploring altered states of consciousness more deeply and fully.
Dreams will have great significance.

Lessons associated with death, dying and revelations about its processes will begin to surface.
Groundhog can teach its people metabolic control.
How to go into the great unconscious without harm.

People with a Groundhog totem need to have definite
boundaries in their life and let those around them know those boundaries.

Groundhog’s power is strongest in Winter and two years is an important time period.
Two years of intensive studying might be required to achieve
true trances or alter states of consciousness.

This is often the totem of Shamans and Mystics.

(Above info from

Here is some additional history on Groundhog day from wikipedia:

The celebration, which began as a Pennsylvania German custom in southeastern and central Pennsylvania in the 18th and 19th centuries, has its origins in ancient European weather lore, wherein a badger or sacred bear is the prognosticator as opposed to a groundhog.[6] It also bears similarities to the Pagan festival of Imbolc, the seasonal turning point of the Celtic calendar, which is celebrated on February 1 and also involves weather prognostication[7] and to St. Swithun’s Day in July.

Historical origins

An early American reference to Groundhog Day can be found in a diary entry,[8] dated February 4, 1841, of Berks County, Pennsylvania, storekeeper James Morris:

Last Tuesday, the 2nd, was Candlemas day, the day on which, according to the Germans,[9] the Groundhog peeps out of his winter quarters and if he sees his shadow he pops back for another six weeks nap, but if the day be cloudy he remains out, as the weather is to be moderate.

In Scotland the tradition may also derive from an English poem:

As the light grows longer
The cold grows stronger
If Candlemas be fair and bright
Winter will have another flight
If Candlemas be cloud and rain
Winter will be gone and not come again
A farmer should on Candlemas day
Have half his corn and half his hay
On Candlemas day if thorns hang a drop
You can be sure of a good pea crop

Happy Groundhog Day!
