It happened one night. During a time of emotional darkness, I received a miraculous healing … in a dream! Before this experience, I had never considered that dreams could be a channel for healing. Yet, when you consider that everything is energy, it makes sense that a dream originating from the spiritual realm would have the power to shift things quickly. Beliefs and behavior patterns that have existed for years, decades, or even lifetimes, can change with a single thought from the spiritual realm.
After this initial experience, healing dreams became a common occurrence in my life. One night, I was struggling with a limiting belief that any fun, exciting, and imaginative idea was the ego’s attempt to distract me from my spiritual path. I labored through mundane tasks without energy or enthusiasm, believing that this way of living would keep me untethered to the material world. I ignored or repressed any stirrings of inspiration, until one dream changed everything.
I stand in a crowd next to an older woman. She firmly grasps the hand of a little girl. It appears as if their relationship is loving, but my intuition tells me something is not quite right. No one in the crowd seems to notice anything amiss. Yet, I sense that the child is being neglected. I am determined to act. As the woman and child walk away from the crowd, I follow. Sneaking up from behind the woman, I snatch the child away from her. The child, scared and confused, reaches out for the woman. I comfort the child with promises that I will care for her. I will look out for her needs and keep her safe. These words sooth the child and she relaxes in my arms. The woman becomes irate and screams, “She has taken my child!” The crowd, hearing the commotion, closes in. “Give her back the child!” They demand. “I will not give her back,” I state firmly. “This child is being neglected. I am the one who will keep her safe.” The crowd sees no evidence of neglect, so they believe the woman. They sling threats at me. I refuse to budge. The pressure builds until suddenly a man confesses sheepishly, “I saw the woman yesterday and she WAS neglecting the child.” Now that an eyewitness has backed up my claim, the crowd knows that I am right. But, the man’s confirmation makes no difference to me. I acted on my intuition. That was enough.
When I woke up from the dream, I knew a major energetic shift had occurred.
All along my intuition had been telling me to rescue my child-like spirit from the ego’s rule. I didn’t listen until after this dream. Inspiration that I repressed and ignored because I believed I would lose my spiritual inheritance, was now recognized as spiritual guidance. I nurtured and cared for creative ideas and ignored the voices that told me what I should or should not do. Energized and inspired by intuition, the old patterns of passively letting the ego control my life had come to an end. And, I was grateful once again for the insights and healings that can come from dreams.
If your creative, child-like spirit has been living under the ego’s “care” for far too long, maybe it is time for you to take action. Refuse to listen to thoughts that keep you from your power, your gifts, and your purpose. Act on your intuition. If you become confused or frightened, hold firm to your vision, yet be gentle with yourself. Never forget, “You were created to create the good, the beautiful, and the holy” (A Course in Miracles). Each day ask your inner wisdom, “What will give me joy today? What will feed my soul? How can I nurture and care for my creative spirit?” Then act on your intuition and go forth to create a beautiful world.
