Snapshot dream: One of those short dreams you see right before you wake up…
All I saw was a coffee thermos with the lid removed.
It tipped down and a pair of keys fell out.
They were the small kind that always come with a diary.
Then a regular sized set with maybe four or five house keys fell out……
When I meditated on the dream the diary keys reminded me of my morning journaling and I remembered that I had marked some things by drawing a key by them, so looked back though till I found the keys.
The place marked with the key was helpful information that I am trying to find ways to apply to my life, the dream was a reminder.
*A recurring theme in my meditation has been on how Consciousness becomes form.
Not so much our consciousness, but Consciousness in the sense of All There Is.
The energy that creates and animates everything.
Consciousness is formless,
Thoughts are form,
Emotions are form,
It is the idea of emotions being forms that I am trying to wrap my mind around.
The key dream was part one of a series of dreams.
I have had four more dreams since that have presented ways to assimilate the information.
This is what I have received so far. Most of it is information I already believe to be true.
The idea that emotions are form is still growing.
1. Everything is Consciousness, the All There Is. (God)
2. Our core essence is 100% Consciousness.
3. Thoughts are the first form that we use to create physical form, a blueprint of sorts.
4. Emotions are forms created in response to thoughts, more importantly beliefs.
5. We never are an emotion; we just allow ourselves to embody its energy. We are always, at our core essence, formless Consciousness.
I believe that we are here to learn and evolve and if that is true, the thing I am here to learn is how to survive depression and hopefully help others learn how to deal with it.
While meditating on this dream, through a reverie I saw the emotion, depression, as a huge boulder that I could walk around.
Suddenly seeing myself as an observer allowed me to separate from the emotion.
Our I Am statements, (I am depressed for instance) if said often enough and long enough creates an emotional form that we end up embodying and we start to believe they are us, while in fact we are eternal formless energy masquerading in created forms.
Once we see ourselves as separate from it, it allows you to start creating a new reality for yourself.
It is hard to convince ourselves that something is true if it doesn’t feel true.
I can’t tell myself I am happy when I feel depressed and believe it, but I can tell myself I am formless energy at my core, and I feel that it is true.
It creates a stopping point where I can separate myself from the feeling long enough to find a thought that will create a more useful emotional feeling.
Another reverie I saw was a giant gong.
The gong is symbolic of a vibrating emotion.
It was followed by the statement,
“You have never been the gong, the striker nor the sound.
How do you silence a gong?
You touch it with stillness.
If you want it to stop, quit striking the gong.”
I would be interested if this resonates with anyone.
