“When the soul wants to experience something, she throws out an image in front of her and then steps into it.” Meister Eckhart, German Catholic theologian, philosopher, and mystic, 13th century.
Symbols surround us. Sometimes I feel as if the Universe speaks to us in so many ways that we take them for granted, when in fact, messages are often hiding in plain sight. How so, you may ask?
What are Dream Symbols?
Think about what catches your eye when on a walk. Are you deep in thought, and then something from nature catches your eye? Could that bird or critter, maybe even an unusually bright blossoming tree, carry some importance to you for those moments as thoughts swirl around?
What is the Dreamtime?
Working with our Dreamtime: defined as nighttime dreams, daydreams, inspirations, and intuition, our non-quantifiable senses, the all of us attuned more deeply to an encompassing world, reveals itself as so much more than we have been taught. Our imagination speaks to us in symbols; as Meister Eckhart says above, our deep self throws out an image. What do we do with this?
If we are aware of these possibilities, we open ourselves to engaging with this world in a myriad of ways that contain ideas that could lead to innovations, solutions, answers, puzzles revealed, and more. We become more authentically whole. And we begin to get a peek into this mysterious place we call home in ways that go beyond our wildest imaginations.
I don’t know about you, but I find that exciting.
