The Black Octopus
One day I had a dream. In fact, it was a nightmare about a black Octopus who was following me in my living room. I tried to run away from it, hide, but the black Octopus was following me everywhere. It was very ugly, huge, and extremely annoying. I am the kind of person who pays close attention to dreams, because I believe that they contain important messages about ourselves and our lives. Our spirits send us important messages through our dreams. This is another extraordinary way to be aware of what is happening in your subconscious, as long as you can remember them. There are also many books that explains how dreams are related to your soul.
Every time I have a dream, I tend to consult a special dream dictionary. I am a very curious person, and I don't feel calm until I find the answer and the meaning to my dream. Therefore, I searched the dictionary for the significance of this dream. I discovered that the Black Octopus is a sign of someone who is controlling you. This gave me the inspiration to write this blog post. But the Black Octopus is not about people controlling you, but rather how our Ego, which I have now decided to call The Black Octopus, is controlling our thoughts daily.
For a very long time I was in a high vibrational state. Recently however, I started having some health issues, and my vibration has been lowered because of the pain and the inability to move as easily as I once did. The fact of having to stay home and depend on others to help me has not been easy for me. I am usually a pretty active person taking massive action. So now my mind has started wandering and thinking negative thoughts, which in turn is affecting my feelings. These thoughts are so strong, that even doing my regular spiritual work does not seem to be helping as much as it usually does. In addition, I have a sensitivity to cloudy weather. My mood changes drastically influencing my vibration. I am the kind of person who needs a lot of sun.
The lesson for me in all of this, is that there is still unresolved emotional pain I need to deal with. Sometimes, it is simply important to give space to that pain and sit with it. Not long ago I read a book by Debbie Ford called: The Dark Side Of The Light Chasers. She mentioned this very same thing. Throughout my experience, I am finding she is right. The more I resist the pain, the longer it lingers, and the Black Octopus stays feeling pretty happy making me feel pretty miserable. Sitting with it and allowing it to be here, is having the courage to face my little dark shadows.
I always try to look at the gift and the lesson of my experience. I believe that in my case, there are 3 important elements happening at the moment to help me grow.
Here are the 3 Important Elements Helping Me To Grow:
1) I feel some negative energy is being cleared because I am doing some special release work.
2) I believe my 3rd eye is growing. This might seem weird to some of you, but I noticed that I get into this mood when my intuition is becoming stronger. It is alright if you don't believe in that. Each of us is different.
3) I am receiving new awareness about situations in my life that have been laying dormant in my subconscious until now.
As the week passes, I am starting to have some awareness about taking responsibility for some personal issues in my life. One of these issues is the way I communicate with family members. I am learning that I have the tendency to be very bossy. I am having a hard time dealing with this. It is not easy for me to see this side of myself. I am also aware that because I am sick, I fall into the "victim mentality" role, and that this repels some people. Even if we are experts or coaches ourselves, our lives are not always perfect. If they were, we wouldn't be able to help others. There are times in our lives when we feel a down period as well. I am noticing it happens to me after I have been in a very high vibrational state.
What are you learning from your experiences when you have such a period of time? How do you cope with it? What learning do you gain from such experiences? Every time I have such a time, I use gratitude, and I try to see the gift in all of it if I can. When I do, the lessons are revealed to me.
We all have times when we may feel sad angry or any other feelings that put us in a unhappy mood and this when we can take the time to look at our darkness, introspect and see the richness even in those parts we don't like about ourselves and life. Even these moments are necessary to our growth as much as positive thinking. After all we are not born to be perfect, we are born to be human. I am glad to share with you these moments and my intention is to help you reflect on your own and see your inner beauty even in the flows and challenges of life and most of all see the gift and the benefits even if it can be hard.
