Last night as I was preparing to go to sleep I set the single intention that my dreams show me things that would help me to set better intentions for this life. So waking up this morning I began to go over my dreams to see if there were any messages I could use for just that. I would say that the most prominent message I got was stage performance. Come to think of it yesterday when I was speaking with Johnathan he had mentioned the two greatest fears that humanity has #1 being stage fright and #2 being death. So most people would die before they get on stage and speak or perform. Contemplating the idea of stage performance a quote came to mind that I had at random select opened a book of quotes to.
"Nurture the dreams that will inspire you to go beyond your limits."
I was shocked to find today after searching through the book for that quote that it was on page 111! And yes I took a picture for proof! THEN, just now as I went back to see who the quote was from, which is anonymous, I immediately opened the book to 143! I mean really?! Haha! The first quote that my eyes bounced to was this one.
"Great work is done by people who are not afraid to be great." - Fernando Flores
In considering new intentions these two quotes are very powerful and prevent me from creating intentions that are too easy or simplistic. Intentions that simply comfort my emotions and give me an easy fun and free life. These are all good but through this guidance the message is clear that I will need to step up the intentions, to take myself to a state of being that can only be experienced when we go beyond what we have known and challenge ourselves to step up to a great version of ourselves. It has to start with intention, align with our Spiritual needs and then a consistent alignment vibrationally as well as a keen eye and heart for the messages that come soon after. But the intention must be CLEAR. We must know what we are intending so well that we feel it inside and are willing to do it the very day we intend it should Spirit align things that way, that is how SURE the intention must be. So to reiterate,
Intentions should be so sure that you are open to them occurring the very day of intending. And they should always invoke good feelings when intended.
And just an FYI I had intended to not photo the clock anymore (It was becoming a chore) and now every time I go to take picture of it when I catch a sychronistic number the clock changes. See how powerful we are? I caught the clock at 11:11 and 11:43am while writing this.
Today I went for a walk to the green-way and just down the street I encountered a dead snake at the edge of the road. I was going to go the other way when was first leaving our house, but I chose the path that felt it had the most potential. I realized that tends to be the path I have the most fear surrounding. Seems I/we have a fear of our own greatness, which is inevitably found within our path of greatest potential. So I chose the path that felt the most intimidating. Anyway I took a photo of it, and it was pretty big, but I didn't feel that the energy of death should go in this book. If anything the dead snake to me symbolized the death of the old way of crawling on our bellies in dense 3d reality, while the butterflies symbolize renewal and transformation and flight!
Here's a little green creature who jumped out in front of me and flew to the nearest tree.
A little ways further I encountered a great big yellow butterfly. I didn't get to hold this one but it let me pet it numerous times while it fed, it seemed completely unafraid of me.
I went to Harris Teeter, a local grocer we have here in Charlotte, and on my way out I passed a store that had a butterfly wind chime. I was thinking about taking a photo of it but I was content to have just taken note. Always take the path of least resistance!
The last note of the day is a quote I just posted to facebook which came to me as a result of connecting a few dots. A few friends, who likely don't know each other, all posted things about worry. I was at first wondering why Spirit was bringing that to me. At first I was thinking "I'm not worried about a thing!" and then brushed it off. Later I realized I was worried about something as emotions began to slowly build. What is this I thought? Now I realize that I was worried in a very subtle way because earlier today I saw an army jeep and some troops at our local police station and I didn't like that. This had subtly set me out of my vortex and I didn't realize that it had caused me to stop expecting goodness from reality. That is a critical piece to the synchronicstic existence I have going here! So the quote is...
"Why is expecting goodness so important? It directly counteracts worry."
This was a quick lesson and I'm glad I was aware enough to catch it so quickly. I would even say I am blessed to have caught it, and to be able to share it with you all.
All things creative.
