Mystic Medusa‘s astro rave said that the planets are encouraging strong dream messages this week. And lo, after being unable to recall my dreams for a couple of months, they’re back. Nothing too profound but they are back and I’m pleased.
This morning I woke up with a vivid image of making space in a neat, somewhat sparse pantry cupboard, for a very large box of breakfast cereal. My real life pantry is jam-packed with all kinds of weird and wonderful foodstuffs and this one seemed kind of temporary, with a limited number of items, perhaps a pantry cupboard in a holiday apartment. Maybe my sleeping self was hungry? But I don’t eat cereal (milk, ick!) so I think perhaps this dream image has something to do with grain, the Goddess Ceres, the harvest, nurturing, the idea of having enough.
The previous night I dreamt of walking up to a large group of people who were gathered in a park for some kind of organised activity. I had the impression it was an outdoor team-bonding exercise and approached looking for someone familiar. I saw two woman I knew – one was my friend and the other a former colleague – both are enthusiastic ‘participants’ with a seemingly endless capacity to give, give, give to others. Although I walked into the crowd, I didn’t speak to anyone. I saw the two woman and turned around and walked back in the direction I had come from.
Having written those dreams down, side by side, I now see the common theme – abundance and giving. There’s plenty of cereal in the pantry but people can help themselves. Group activities will proceed without me and that’s OK.
Right now, I don’t have abundant energy. Right now, I need to rest; to give to myself.
