Several years ago, as I started to open my heart and began to consciously explore my spiritual path, I started to be able to fly in my dreams. At first I could only fly when being chased and full of terror. I could barely get my feet above my chasers’ heads and feared they would reach up and grab me down.
I never made it into that circle, the fear stopped me. And for awhile I kind of beat myself up about it. Here I was connecting with the forest and in a semi-blissful state, then I became fearful of the very thing I was trying to connect to. “What’s wrong with me?” I thought. I no longer felt at peace and was feeling a bit heavy. Fear had replaced trust and on top of that I had self judgement beating me over the head. Then I remembered the beautiful practice of allowing my emotions, without judging them…
Turn towards joy. When things get hard, stop. Take a break. Breathe. Look within. Listen. Sure there are plenty of things to get done.
Your to-do list drags on—pages and pages. That’s okay. Forget it for the moment.
