Explore Your Dreams: When you dont pay attention to your new Life.

by Cathy Pagano May 15, 2010 08:30 PM EST

 

Throughout everyone’s life, there are times when we create new possibilities for ourselves.  These new possibilities are very much like having a baby.  (1) They are birthed from our creative imaginations, and (2) they take on a life of their own, if we give them half a chance.  This is the fun, the adventure and growth that occurs within us when we stop trying to live a dead life and open up to something new.

Now, many of us do this through giving birth to literal children.  But each of us has the capacity to ‘give birth’ in the inner world to a new part of ourselves.  A new life!  An inner child!  

It might be we take up learning to play the violin; we might take up ping pong!  Or we decide to quit our corporate job and go out on our own.  Often it comes once our children grow up and leave home, and we get a job.  Or we might discover we have a talent for music or art or sailing and dive into our new passion.  

Whatever that new ‘birth’ is demands us to pay attention to it.  For like a child, we need to pay attention to it and nurture it.  That means we can’t expect anything to happen overnight.  A new life does not arrive full-blown at our door.  We have to work with it until it becomes a part of our life, a daily habit.

So often we start something new, only to let it languish because we’ve forgotten to pay attention to it. Or we push ourselves in ways that make us uncomfortable and so we withdraw.   A new habit needs focus and attention otherwise we revert to old patterns and habits.  And then our life stays the same.  

Here’s a dream reminder to Pay Attention!

The Dream:  I am in a room with my sister and her husband.  And I see a small baby, around 3 to 4 months old.  I don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl.  I do know it isn’t my sister’s baby.  But I realize that the baby is very thirsty for water.  I take the baby over to the sink and tip its mouth under the faucet, so it can drink from it.  The baby begins to choke and as I turn the baby up to put on my shoulder, some chili dribbles out of its mouth.   

The dreamer’s associations:

Her sister and husband have what she describes as a good, solid working relationship when it comes to family life.  They have 3 children and both work and share in all family responsibilities.  They are great parents and partners, although not perfect.  They both worked hard to become conscious – they’ve both gone through transformations.  They are a good balance between masculine and feminine energies.

3 or 4 months ago her father had just passed.  The passing of our parents often constellates new life in us.  We are now the elders.

Chili is totally inappropriate as nourishment for a 3 to 4 month old child.  While making the baby drink out of the faucet is also inappropriate for its abilities.  Babies just don’t drink well from faucets.

Now the water is symbolic of many things: healing, feelings, nurturing.  It represents the waters of life as well.  This baby needs life and feelings, and nurturing.  Chili isn’t going to cut it!

This dream came to remind the dreamer that she does have the potential to make a new life for herself.  But she hasn’t quite known how to do it, and so she pushing it to be more or bigger than it has the capacity to be at this time.  

Like her sister, she has to develop patience and put a lot of work into finding out how this new life wants to be lived.

Dreams are our guides.  They show us exactly how we are dealing with our energies.  Learn how to work with your dreams, and your life will open up for you.

Until next time,

Sweet Dreams!
