Recently, several dreams have led me on a path of renewed creativity, through the presence of particular colors and gemstones. In one dream, a rebirth journey, I come to a room that is very powerful and affirming to me - a reflection of myself, but with enhanced aspects that I have not yet discovered. The walls are rich colors, including a deep red, which moves me to paint one wall of my studio in that rich red. The color brings a new depth and inspires me to spend more creative time there. Two other dreams show me a book using crystals and stones to help others in their healing, and a beautiful blue gemstone. In seeking out this color stone, I discover many gemstones, and the joy of creating art according to what feels visually pleasing and energetically healing. The stones and crystals feel like little beings who bring medicine and light into the world, through their alchemy. In the studio I am tapping into flow and presence, into a deeper experience of alignment with life. This peaceful, meditative activity brings balance to my highly verbal, analytical work, and helps me to engage more fully in the world. I encourage you to follow the creative inspiration from your dreams, in order to uncover wonderful new gifts!
Dreaming is a magical and powerful gift that we are all given, nightly, if we open up and tune in. Do you have trouble remembering your dreams? We can invite and inspire them to return. Do you feel haunted by negative or scary images? These are workable, and can be transformed into guidance and important messages for healing.
When I struggle with discipline - wanting to sit down to write a song, or improvise some singing or drumming, or write a poem - but come up with a hundred things that I have to do first, I think of something that a very good friend told me many years ago, "Discipline is remembering what you want."
