I am a vivid dreamer, able to fill dream journals with pages and pages of dreams, many about myself, sometimes about others, and still other dream stories are about the country or world events. When I have a particular dilemma or question about life, I will write it in my dream journal and wait for an answer.
Recently without prompting or questions, I dreamt that I was working with a team of people creating life experiences for a woman. The events were meant to challenge her in every way, experience after experience, one after another, sometimes more than one occurring on top of another. Layer after layer, one upon another, complex and highly intense. Each experience meant to peel and pull, to break away the characteristics of the woman… Until she was clean… Until she was clear and transparent… Ready to begin again.
The woman was never broken, instead she persisted. She allowed and accepted. She went through the experiences one after another, layer upon layer from the beginning to the now. Throughout the peeling and pulling breaking down process she came to be free… Free from the burdens each experience had brought forth in memories.
Now, she appeared before us all like calm waters, crystal-clear and accepting… Childlike in that she was now a vessel for what newness would begin. As I rose from the dream feeling indifferent, I thought it was just a dream about a woman. But it wasn’t about just a woman. I realized it was me. I am this woman. I am naked, clean, soul stripped bare, transparent, empty and calm, ready for the new beginnings that lay ahead.
Yes, I am — Let it begin.
