Here’s an update from Margaret who was my guest in episode 55 of The Dream Show.
“Where do I start? So, so much has happened. The dream we discussed was a recurring dream theme. It turned out to be about how I’ve needed to manipulate situations so I can do what I want or show who I truly am. I realised that I had never felt I would be accepted or understood in just being who I am.”
Margaret had had this recurring dream theme for ten years, but this time it had a positive ending. It marked a deep change that occurred in the days leading up to the dream.
“The dream was evidence that a previous alchemy I had done had worked its magic! It healed and transformed this belief.”
Margaret’s dream featured a dog at a vet surgery. I set her a dream alchemy practice based on artwork: she had to create a certificate signed by Tom the veterinarian. In the days following the podcast, while she was doing the artwork, she experienced a synchronicity:
“A beautiful, friendly, lost staffy male dog approached my front door. He was obviously much loved. I gave him some water and went for a walk with him. I thought he may be able to find his direction home. This was not successful. He followed me back to my house. I did think of keeping him but he was owned and loved by someone else. I phoned the local Vet and took him there as they could scan for a microchip and find the owners.”
Synchronicities come up when you are experiencing deep change. They usually involve symbols that your unconscious mind has expressed in a dream. As Margaret put it:
“This is synchronicity at its best! I have always loved the personality of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. This dog was so loving and not afraid of receiving help from me. It seemed like he knew he had to trust and surrender to me to find his way home. Very much like me at the time!”
Although this was a dream that reflected recent positive change, our discussion during the podcast uncovered deeper levels that led Margaret to new breakthroughs.
“Following this path of self development allowed me to identify a much deeper negative belief. I have pinpointed and named the core belief that has caused me to experience judgement, fear and the need to control.
When I faced and acknowledged this core negative belief, I allowed myself to heal. I am already experiencing abundance, love, peace and acceptance and I know that these positives will increase over time.”
Margaret noticed that her creativity increased as a result of these changes.
“I am confident enough to follow what I would like to create without the need to manipulate. I have wanted to self publish a book that is a collection of children’s quotes about how they perceive their parents and what it is they enjoy or like best about mum and dad.
In the past, I procrastinated with this (due to fear) and therefore created blockages. These blockages have now been removed and I am proactively gathering my quotes. My thinking has shifted from ‘how can I do this, I can’t get access to enough children, blah, blah, blah’ to ‘I am only limited by my thinking so, change my thinking’.
This has led to getting the community involved and I am having a lot of fun working on this project. A large percentage of profit from sales will go to the charity Act for Kids, and several local businesses have donated prizes, as all the children’s responses will enter into a draw.
Never, ever, did I think I would have the confidence and the ability to do something like this.”
I offered to share the link to Margaret’s project so you can have a look and give her your support. Margaret agreed and added, “If you have children I would love it if they could participate.”
