Before I went to sleep last night, I asked about deep human purpose and application to this life. My powerful dream began at a restaurant that was failing because the foundation of the building was not secure. It caused the structure to crack, beams to fall and harm the people working and eating there. I was led on to another place.
I then saw a young couple who were contemplating a divorce but wanted to try one last thing. The woman laid down on a massage table while the husband rubbed some kind of lotion on her. They both fell asleep, but when they woke up, they realized that everything was still the same. He had only covered up the pain with a surface treatment. Their pain was deeper and was being ignored by them both.
I was then taken to a small bathroom where I was supposed to relieve myself with the door open. People were outside the door watching. It was really uncomfortable and I didn’t want to do it. My resistance created anger.
We all have things we want to do in this life, serve others, raise a healthy, happy family, fulfill financial dreams, etc., but we have to secure our basic foundation. This is a balance between body, mind, and spirit. Excessive attention to any one of them or lack of, that tips the balance, can be devastating to the other parts. This imbalance creates disorientation and even loss of the ability to function as a whole being. A good example is a college student spending long hours trying to get all A’s but ignoring her health and spirit to do it. Another one would be a body builder ignoring the spirit and mind to get cut and win trophies with his body. There is nothing wrong with goals and dreams, but we have to keep track of all of the pieces of ourselves along the way.
I believe that this whole foundation is fortified when we understand that we, as spirit beings, already know how to be perfect spirit beings. WE KNOW. Our fantastic balance and ultimate power come when we figure out how to successfully be a spirit being in a human body. We have a foundation in all parts that needs to be encouraged.
The most important things to the foundation of the human are the relationship to self, relationship to others and infinitely realizing that they are one in the same. All experiences must be reconciled, everything from deep trauma like losing a loved one, an accident or any kind of grief all the way to the bee sting in third grade. If we don’t deal with our emotions and how they affect us and those around us, we are missing the point of life itself.
The final part is about transparency to self and others. Hiding and being shameful about our flaws and misfortunes doesn’t serve us at all. Yes, we do have a right to keep some things secret and sacred, but the things that hold us back from balance, health, wealth, and love need to be revealed and cleared. This can be difficult because, as humans, we don’t want to be wrong or rejected.
Personally, I understand how hard it is to admit fault, but I also know that it feels really good to admit that I’m ten shades of fucked up. It takes the pressure off of the need to be perfect. I’ve hurt people. I’ve hurt myself. Hell, I still do and will likely continue. Why, because I am 100% spirit living 100% in a human body. This is what I came here for. It’s what you came here for: to be imperfect and unpredictable.The most important things to the foundation of the human are the relationship to self, relationship to others… Click To Tweet
I do also believe that to surrender ourselves to this reality is what really enables us to see more of our perfect spirit come to the surface. It’s like looking at a beautiful mahogany table, seeing the shine but also knowing that what’s before you is years of wax building up on the surface. After a while, it yellows and loses its luster. You have to strip it off and replace it in order to, once again, reveal the beautiful wood underneath.
As we strip away the pain, anger, grief, and flaws from our life and transform them into peace, joy, and strengths, we will see the true beauty of our spirits shining through. This takes time… many lifetimes, perhaps. As I look back, the most tragic and painful experiences are the ones that showed me the most about who I am and who I am not.
Please let me know what you think about the balance between body, mind, and spirit. I would also love to hear about a dream you’ve had that you want to make sense of. I have the gift of dream interpretation and love to help others understand messages in the night!
