Intend Before You Dream
So last night I put out the intention to commune with my Spirit Guides and Gaia and to most importantly LISTEN. Through various dreams and visions I was shown that much of my recent activity is about my connection to others, in terms of friends. It's actually very courageous of me I feel to be putting this out there and that was probably the main message of the dream. My Soul itself actually needs to be around others and in particular I need to be willing to be open and vulnerable and trusting enough to be who I am and be open to others in all ways. So that pretty much hits home. I can cope with life as it is, but my attempts to connect with the animals and the 30 hugs in 30 days thing... It's all about a Spiritual desire to connect with others, in person, and form REAL friendships where we each can feel authentic and unconditionally loved. But it all starts with me. That being said I still intend to make the animal kingdom connection.
Lots of Hellos From Above and Bellow
Today a butterfly flew circles around me and landed on me twice, one of those time right on my head! :) And along the path home a grass hopper jumped right out in front of me and let me take its picture, I thanked it and moved along.
The story doesn't end there. A little further down the path there was a heard of deer feeding on the grass at the edge of the path. I stopped so as to not disturb them. After being scared off into the woods by a runner a doe returned to feed and headed right back in my direction. She still doesn't trust me I guess but I got a chance to take some nice pictures. Last time I saw deer I didn't get nearly this close, about 30 to 40 feet maybe. I wish hunters would stick their guns up their own arse and stop killing for sport, it's just not cool, and it's messing with the animals trust in humans. As it stands now they have no reason to trust us.
Before I went to the greenway I had gone to the gas station to pick up breakfast, three bananas and green tea. I asked the cashier how she was doing and she rolled her eyes saying "You don't wanna know." I suppose I could've said "Sure I do." I felt I wanted to converse but it's so out of character to break my path to strike of conversation and I didn't know what to say. However I have done it before just not with a stranger. The ball is my court as they say, when the gates open up it is up to me to walk through. When someone needs to be heard I need to indicate I am a willing listener, with a smile and a pause.
What Is This Book About Again?
Something I'm coming to realize is that this book is really not just a retelling of my day to day activities but a record of the messages from my Spirit. No one needs to know what I ate for lunch today or that I went to the store and picked up a fruit, unless of course there was something within that event that spoke to me in a special way. See my spirit has needs and my ego is not aware of all of them, but as I go on the messages that my Spirit tell me bring to light the most sacred and important details of its own needs. And it is up to me to align with those needs. To recognize my deepest feelings and let go of the old ways so that the new can be birthed It really is a process of getting out of our own way. Thank you Spirit for speaking, thank you ego for listening.
All things creative.
