Was inspired to write today. Lots on my mind. Again and again I always get stuck.
Stuck with word crafting. Stuck with structure. Stuck with clearly expressing what it is I am trying to share.
So consider this a rant, a letter, a simple share from a friend. There will be nothing formal about this post.
I am just going to throw up everything that comes to mind. Raw, unfiltered and unadulterated thoughts to paper.
Nothing fancy or eloquent. Just a pure, open and honest conversation.
If your brain functions in anyway like mine, you are on a constant swirl of figuring things out.
Seeking solutions yet simultaneously quieting the mind. How to better your current situations in every which way imaginable, as though your life depends on it.
Any thought you conjure creates your bodies state of health. Negative thoughts create a negative order or a negative command to the cells, tissues and organs you carry in your body.
So if you continue to think negatively your body will create that same negative floating ball of energy elsewhere.
And it will more than likely show up as a headache, migraine, or a cancer of some sort if prolonged.
Point of that tidbit? I don’t know, it just came to mind. Store it somewhere in your hippocampus because its vital information. So here’s the fun part of this letter. Roam into my thoughts and dreams for a minute and help me make sense of this.
I had a dream I was showering naked in the middle of a one way street last night.
It was awkward. I felt a bit shy about it, but still carried on with washing away the lathered soap from my body.
Couldn’t tell if people were there watching because I was completely focused on me. Plus something inside of me preferred not to know.
This was a completely lucid dream by the way. Not sure what it meant, but amidst all the small bits and pieces of this dream, this naked memorable sensation was stored.
Why am I showering naked in the middle of a one way street? Broad day light? Yes. There was absolutely nothing hidden. Completely naked, open and exposed to the public.
Although I have insecurities with my body, the choice was deliberate on my part.
I notice I place myself in tough and difficult situations because I love the feeling of uncertainty. The challenge and the default sense of faith that gives me permission to think that everything will be ok.
Faith, not to be confused with fake. You know me, I prefer to faith it and not fake it.
So what do you think? How can I interpret this dream?
Maybe its because my unconscious is constantly telling me I can do whatever the hell I want.
But this is a bit obsessive. A bit much, dont’cha think? Naked in public? Come on!!??
A few sources are saying its a purging and cleansing process.
Perhaps it is, but that still leaves me with uncertainty. I share this with you because I think it is fascinating how the brain observes and interprets things in the awaken and dreaming world. I think ultimately I have to be honest with myself, aye?
In reality, dreams will hardly ever tell you something that you don’t already know on some level- its more likely that I have been repressing or pushing something aside. Its probably sex. I probably need sex.
Well, here I am, post dream. So whats next? What do I want?? Maybe I should find a one way street, pitch a tent and shower naked to find some answers because my mind is playing tricks on me? Though knowing myself, i’d take a different route. Pleasing my senses, and fulfilling the obvious is just way too easy. I think i am going to call on my ancestors for this. 93% full moon tonight calls for a summoning…join me if you like. Until next post…Peace and love.
Things you need
* A Staff (preferably one you have worked with before)
* Purification or protection Incense (I am using palo santo)
* A small offering (meat works well, though bread will work too. I am offering two tangerines tonight)
* 3 white Candles (any type will do, i just depends on how long you intend to hold the ritual)
This ritual works best at night though can be performed at any time
Form the candles into a circle around the incense burner (or incense) and light the candles and start burning the incense (note: if using stick or cone incense, keep a ready supply within the ritual area and light it with the candles, there can be no new fire added or it can disrupt the ritual)
(optional, but recommended) Cast a circle
Hold up your staff and visualize a light at its end as you say in a firm tone:
“Ancestors (name of ancestor) of Blood and Spirit, come to this light. Come to guide and aid me in this time and place, for I seek you wisdom and knowledge, please lend me your aid and grant me your presence in this sacred space”
Repeat the request three times, twenty minutes apart, then wait quietly for them.
Indications of a presence. How can you tell they are here? Some signs may be the scent of flowers, or favored cologne, a cool wind, movement of
curtains, and candles going out or twitching erratically.
Once you feel sure your ancestor is with you, make it short and sweet.
Take care of your business, say farewell, and thank them for their assistance before closing the circle.
Blow out the candles one by one and envision that they have left with the candle smoke.
