I didn't realize how much I missed swapping with you until last months. This one is too overwhelming for me at the moment, but I hope you don't mind if I poke my nose in now and again.
I often dream I'm loosing my teeth. Sometimes all of them at once, sometimes they spoil, crack and fall one by one. I hate those as they seems so real!
I have dreams about my teeth falling out in handfuls. My dentist says that most people who work in the dental field have similar dreams and maybe I should be thinking a career change. He has a Monty Python sense of humor.
My animal totem has been the seal since I was little. Don't know how or why, but it makes more sense to me every year.
As a kid I had dreams that came true weeks or months later, not very often but I did get deja vu at those times. I wish I still had them....I liked them.
Why do we loose stuff like that?
We lose it because we've been socialized to not believe in our inner voices or that which cannot be 'scientifically proven and recreated.' I've had some wonderful spontaneous readings by a psychic. Asked about who smoked - my grandfather who died in 1989 during my senior year of high school, he was worried about me when he died and has been watching me ever since. We were in the middle of buying a house - he told us that they didn't think we could do it, meaning parts of my carefully pruned snarky family. There were some others that were just as out of the blue. I know that people talk about psychics not being real, but in my mind, there was no way anyone could have read those in my body language.
I had goddesses chose me - Kali, Lilith and Mary Magdalene are my trinity. (I have a seminary degree.) Others flit in and about my life. Last summer I did a reclaiming course "Rites of Passage (I think that's what it was called) and we spent 1 1/2 months working with Baba-Yaga. Incredibly powerful and it was about whatever change we were facing at the time. We were doing trance work the one week and I hadn't realized how much rage I was holding in until I couldn't get out of the trance. I was screaming and it was only the leader, an incredibly powerful witch who is one of the few I trust for that kind of witch, who was able to eventually bring me out. Incredibly cathartic experience. Not sure Why I'm feeling the need to share all this.
Blessings and gratitude for sharing yourselves - I treasure the interactions.
