The Dreamtime Council – see you there?
I can’t help but recognize the glamorization in American (and Western) culture of not sleeping. As a result our kidneys and adrenal glands are extremely overworked when they respond to the copious amounts of caffeine we ingest. We have built a societal belief pattern that it is a sign of weakness to want to rest, sleep or have nourishment for our bodies.
And yet the truth is that rejuvenation through nourishment (food for the body; music, playfulness and art for our emotions) and rest (sleep and times of meditation and deep relaxation while awake) are natural portions of our rest-work cycle in daily living.
During sleep we know that we enter into different types of rest. I believe that Dreamtime, or Rapid Eye Movement (REM) allows us to process the events of our waking day into patterns that our unconscious mind organizes. My guides suggest that it is here, within this deepest time of dreams, that our soul is able to commune with all the other beings of consciousness with whom we share this reality.
Science is reaching the conclusion that shamans have always known: much of the healing of our physical body takes place in Dreamtime. This is also where I believe that we choose to make major changes in our lives. These major changes are possible only when, during Dreamtime, we are connected into the shared field of consciousness amongst all humans and other beings acting within our reality. It is only with the support of all beings of consciousness that any one of us can fundamentally change. And it is because of the support of all beings of consciousness that this depth of change is possible.
When we are not available to attend this great council during Dreamtime our life experience is not actively participating in the decisions reached by all the other beings in attendance. So not only are we not represented, but we also don’t know what decisions were reached and what changes were agreed upon. Our unconscious mind is not able to hear the proceedings and pass those proceedings onto us in some fashion such as intuition, personal dreams or insights.
Now we just have to be present in the Dreamtime council long enough to share it or hear it!
I am reminded by my guides that the great shifts in consciousness may appear to happen suddenly within our culture, but those shifts in consciousness begin at the great council table in Dreamtime. It is only there that fundamental changes in consciousness can be agreed upon by all beings.
My blessings to all beings, in waking and Dreamtime,
