When God Changes Your Mind
August 9, 2017
Lately, I have been rethinking my life according to some dreams and insights I have from my morning meditations. I have realized that most of life is simply about following my heart, the basic instinct of the Spirit within me, and following peace to the best of my ability.
I had a dream during a meditation yesterday:
I left a home that was dirty and old, rife with old, negative friends who have betrayed me, and places that never resonated with my soul. At last, the kitchen caught on fire. I took my computer, my wallet, and backpack and began to walk away from the fire. I never looked back.
I got to the first intersection and a trucker asked me if I needed a ride. I said, “Yes.”
He told me to get on top of the truck and began to drive through a long tunnel. As he passed through the tunnel he was swerving in and out of lanes, going faster, and I simply held on. I didn’t freak out. I didn’t panic. I trusted the move forward with all of my heart.
As we exited the tunnel, it was as if I was in a new world. There were colors and shapes I had never seen in the sky. As I was staring directly into the sky, I had a primo place to experience the beauty and physical distinction between what was before the tunnel (negativity) and after the tunnel (heaven). I felt extreme peace, even though the truck made a rough landing into a country road.
I got out of the truck as the driver chatted with a few male friends. They were friendly men. I asked them where I was. They told me I was in a small town in Ohio. I could not see one home or business. Just a long dirt road ahead.
This dream confirmed that whatever I’m doing, whether it’s picking up garbage, searching for work, teaching yoga, coaching clients, or painting watercolor masterpieces, I will be at peace. Peace is always my litmus test.
Spirit, in turn, will take the creative power within me to provide for my every need according to the riches of the universe. I believe this fully.
When I don’t believe it for a moment or two, I simply remember my dream or any other circumstance where I had been completely provided for.
This is a strong piece of advice:
I hope that you will begin taking more time to be quiet and meditate. You don’t have to meditate every day for an hour or so, as I do. You can start off with 15 minutes. Set an alarm or use the “Insight Timer” for meditation (an APP). Either way, what you put into growing spiritually will continually reward you as it does me.
Peace and namaste!
