I have always been interested in the dream world and its fascinating images and metaphors.
For me, dreams hold hidden messages from a mystical space.
Ancient cultures believed that your dreams were direct messages from beyond or symbols in need of spiritual interpretation by a respected leader. The Mesopotamians were the earliest culture to write about dreams. They believed the Gods sent dreams to them as a way to communication between the two realms.
We've been writing about dreams ever since.
Thirty years ago, poet Robert Longley started writing poems for people looking for direction and hope in their lives. I want to share one of his sacred poems I recently discovered entitled, Let the Dream Continue. I invite you to read it aloud and feel a connection with your subconscious voice--the place where your dreams are communicated.
Let the Dream Continue
Let’s soar above the mountains
And dance beneath the stars
Live the life we’re made for
Not just hanging out in cars
We are made for greater things
Not all will understand
The chance to touch the future
And to hold her in your hand
Some things are left to dreams
And wishes in your heart
Yet knowing there’s something bigger
That we are all apart
So let the dream continue
And kindle well the fire
To push us on towards greatness
That we all should aspire
I intend to offer a daylong workshop that will bring dreams, shamanic journey, and movement together to explore the magic of these worlds. I want to provide a different way for you to think about your dreams as they relate to your body and to your daily life.
Further details will follow in an upcoming blog post.
