Musings on openly saying and acknowledging what it is you truly want and trusting in the timing of the universe…
I have been very neglectful in paying attention to my dreams lately, and really missing out on capturing some of the golden nuggets that have been hatching in my unconscious mind. I’ll wake up, and either be too tired to write the dream down or I will think ‘nah, I’ll remember it later’ and off I go back to sleep. Of course, I never remember later. So I said ‘ok universe, I promise I will write them down, you’ve taken the time to talk to me, so the least I can do is respect you and listen.’
Last night I had a really profound dream that was so clear in its message… and true to my promise, I wrote it down.
In the dream I am at a house and I find the most beautiful engagement ring. It’s divine in its design, a beautiful intricate gold with a dreamy stone in the middle – it almost looks like a blue pearl. As beautiful as the ring is, it just doesn’t feel right on me. I somehow end up losing it and I’m frantically trying to search for it. I say to my friend ‘isn’t it funny how something so beautiful can feel so wrong? I know it’s not right for me.’ As soon as I say this, I find the main gold part of the ring, but the stone is missing. My friend and I are amazed! Then after some more searching for the stone and wishing I could find it, I say ‘I just wish I could find the stone, not so I can wear it, but so someone else can. It is so beautiful and would be a shame for it to go to waste. I want to find it so it can go to someone else who is meant to have it.’ After I say this, I see the beautiful blue stone appear on the ground. I couldn’t believe it! My friend and I just looked at each other in total amazement and we both have goosebumps, it’s so amazing.
I realised the meaning was that in order to find what you’re looking for, you need to let go of the attachment you have to things that aren’t right for you. You need to say out loud what you know in your heart you don’t want, in order to show the universe that you are ready for the things you do. Part of the process is being OK with letting things go and accepting that whatever it is will end up where and how it’s meant to be.
It may be something that might look broken at first, and it may not come together all at once (as much as you might want it to), but when you’re ready, the gem will appear and things will all come together to make something bigger and complete.
Trust in the process and don’t be afraid to let something go – even if it looks like it should work. It’s ok if it doesn’t – it’s actually ideal if it doesn’t. This is the universe giving you a nudge to change direction, to be brave and to try something new. It opens up space for someone else to appreciate something you have let go. That may be a relationship, a job, some clothing or jewellery you no longer want. Be gracious and have gratitude, know what you deserve and genuinely wish good things for others… The universe has your back, trust that.
