Hello, Random Readers!
Why is the exclamation mark all the way up at the 1 instead of near the question mark on a keyboard? Who configured the keyboard anyway? The typewriter people? Does anyone remember those things? I learned how to type in the 7th grade. All my kids learned by doing. I am not sure how they type. I highly doubt they place four fingers of each hand on the asdf and the jkl;. So weird to think about that. I am so glad I learned to type. But now, I am so used to using thumbs on my phone, and pressing the space twice to make automatic periods and 2 spaces for the next sentence, that when I do sit down to type at a computer, I forget that doesn’t work. And words don’t pop up as I am typing so all I have to do is touch the word.
So about my dream. I have no memory of having this dream, but I had written it down. Looking thru a notebook used as a supplement log, there it was. Tuesday, October 6, 2020. Here is what I wrote:
It’s 5am. I had a bad dream. I think my mom and brother were there. We were at like a banquet or something. – John went somewhere – to smoke pot first I think but then he never came back. I got my mom who was making excuses for him or saying it’s fine but let’s go check on him. Found him I guess. Saw others but didn’t actually see him. But then we were leaving . I was in the lead but fell behind somehow. When I got there, (I didn’t write where there was)there was a guy at a window. I was too late. (for what I don’t know, to eat?) Doors had closed and locked – he let a boy in the window, but not me- and hands me a bowl of food. I was mad- took a bite, it was like dry tuna casserole. I spit it out and threw my crystal glass bowl, stepped out of my flip-flops – walked across the grass, there was my bowl, it broke on a rock – I was kind of afraid of stepping on glass. I picked up part of the bowl to throw it more but only tossed it away to go look for my flip-flops – I then woke up kind of grunting like I was frustrated and tired of walking, angry, sad.( side note and not part of dream- I must have gone to bed at 2 and woke up at 4).
That’s it. I do remember waking up and I was making noise of some sort. But that is all I remember. I don’t even remember writing it down. That’s why we write our dreams down, so we don’t forget them later. Seems like lately I start dreaming immediately after falling asleep because I will wake up and wonder what the heck I was just dreaming.
Do you keep a dream log? Have you ever looked a dream up in a book that claims to interpret them? I think we might have a book like that here. I should look. A Dream Book.
Just a history note: My brother passed away in 1993. My mom passed away in 2007, My dad passed away in 2000 or 2001. I had not seen my dad for years and we had just gotten back in touch. He lived in Wewoka, Oklahoma. There’s a song. Ooooklahoma! Where the wind blows freely down the lane….
Anyway… I am not one of those people who feel my family around me. So for me, I think it’s kind of weird that I had a dream about my mom and brother. Watching ghost and paranormal stuff on YouTube has made me think about talking to them, but mostly I just… I just what? Talk about them or mention them when I do my prayer/meditation/affirmation sessions. Or I was saying the Ho’oponopono for them. That is a prayer made up by a Hawaiian doctor that goes: I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.
So, any ideas about my dream? You don’t really have to analyze it. I was just curious if others might have more insight than I seem to have.
I was having a few minor health issues at the time. I have been swollen for months now and taking Lasix to help shed some of this fluid in my body. What am I trying to hold on to? Or what won’t I let go of?
In the Heal Your Body Book under Edema it says:
Probable Cause: What or who won’t you let go of?
New Thought Pattern: I willingly release the past. It is safe for me to let go. I am free now.
You want to know what she says about Influenza? Just thought it might be interesting because of COVID.
It says, See also Respiratory Ailments:
Probable Cause: Response to mass negativity and beliefs. Fear. Belief in statistics.
New Thought Pattern: I am beyond group beliefs or the calendar. I am free from all congestion and influence.
See also Bronchitis, Colds, Coughs, Influenza:
Probable Cause: Fear of taking in life fully.
New Thought Pattern: I am safe. I love my life.
Probable Cause: Inflamed family environment. Arguments and yelling. Sometimes silent. ( I had pneumonia as a baby and bronchitis when I was a kid, totally fits)
New Thought Pattern: I declare peace and harmony within me and around me. All is well.
Probable Cause: Too much going on at once. Mental confusion, disorder. Small hurts. “I get three colds every winter”, type of belief.
New Thought Pattern: I allow my mind to relax and be at peace. Clarity and harmony are within me and around me. All is well.
Probable Cause: A desire to bark at the world. “See me! Listen to me!”
New Thought Pattern: I am noticed and appreciated in the most positive ways. I am loved.
Inflammation: see also “Itis“:
Probable Cause: Fear. Seeing red. Inflamed thinking.
New Thought Pattern: My thinking is peaceful, calm and centered.
Probable Cause: Anger and frustration about conditions you are looking at in your life.
New Thought Pattern: I am willing to change all patterns of criticism. I love and approve of myself.
Swelling: see Edema, Holding Fluids:
Probable Cause: Being stuck in thinking. Clogged painful ideas.
New Thought Pattern: My thoughts flow freely and easily. I move through ideas with ease.
That is the one affirmation I have not been saying. I am glad I opened this book now. I will start writing this one.
After I had my first child (not the one I gave up for adoption) I was nursing him and I couldn’t imagine leaving him after 6 weeks to go back to work. I needed more time with him. I couldn’t stand the thought of having to go back to work that soon. (My second one was a different story, lol, after 6 weeks, I was so ready to go back to work. Work was like my break and I only worked 4 or 5 hours. And btw, I pumped milk at work. I was one dedicated nurser, haha)
So I asked my OB if he would help me. He said, “Nope. You’re fine. Go back to work.” He had no heart. And his methods were from the ’50’s and my first was born in 1991. In fact, they wanted me to hold the baby in till he got there. He had either been at a birthday party or golfing. That was the only time I made any noise except breathing while being in labor and delivering him. I pretty much let out an involuntary yell, because it was time to push and the nurses were saying, no, and to wait for the doctor. Idiots!
I used no medication whatsoever for my first three children. My last one was breech and they took him C-Section and I had no choice, but I was more terrified of that needle going into my back than I was of labor and delivery. Plus, I know those pain killing meds get to the baby and I wanted my babies completely awake and alert after they were born. So no pain meds in an IV for me.
OK. So I am stuck in my thinking and have clogged painful ideas. Up until now. That shows the Universe you are willing to change a thought pattern, and not willing to affirm whatever negative thing you just said.
My thoughts now flow freely and easily and I move through ideas with ease.
Oh, I forgot to make my point, the reason I told you the story about the doctor not writing me a note because I wanted a little more time with my newborn. I got hemorrhoids. Now, I know you might be thinking that might be a common thing to happen after giving birth. But I had never had them before. And it wasn’t right after giving birth. Remember, my time at home was almost up and I was dreading going back to work. Well, here is how it all turned out.
I looked up the H word.
Probable Cause: Fear of deadlines. Anger of the past. Afraid to let go. Feeling burdened.
New Thought Pattern: I release all that is unlike love. There is time and space for everything I want to do.
I started writing the affirmation. I probably wrote it 10 times a day. I don’t remember, but that’s what I usually did.
The “fear of deadlines” totally fit my situation. I could not believe it. The deadline for me to go back to work was approaching and the OB would not write me a note for more time off work. I had no idea what to do.
Our bodies are our unconscious or subconscious mind or something like that. Thoughts are stored in our bodies. If there was not a mind to think thoughts and a body to experience them, things like dis- ease could not manifest.
You first have to heal the mind, before you can heal the body. You know that Hippocratic Oath doctors take? FIRST DO NO HARM. That’s the guy they got that oath from ( Hippocrates)and he is the one that said you have to heal the mind first. I think med schools have forgotten all about that in the West. That is why affirmations work. If you think it’s brainwashing, then you also have to think that you brainwashed yourself sick in the first place. It doesn’t matter what you call it. Positive thoughts produce positive results and negative thoughts produce negative results. It’s that simple. The ultimate truth is that our thoughts are creative. Denial has no survival value.
The pediatrician ended up writing me a note for my work and insurance ( I can’t remember if it was paid time off, I doubt it) and instead of only getting 6 weeks, a month and a half off, I got 4 months. And guess what? Those hemorrhoids went away quickly. No lie!. It wasn’t an over time it got better thing. They disappeared! That is only one instance of affirmations working. I have many more stories like that. I think I mentioned one other affirmation that changed my life in one of my other posts and that was the ‘Men always want what’s best for me’, affirmation. That was a biggie.
There is a saying that goes, “The Road Gets Narrower”. I take that to mean, that the more you know, the less you can get away with or the more you do affirmations, the quicker they work. The H word happened again, not super long ago. I immediately looked it up and again. I don’t remember the circumstance that time, but I don’t even think I had to write it. I just thought it and maybe said it aloud a few times, and things got better right away. Even I was surprised.
I will let you know how the current affirmation I will be writing goes, the My thoughts flow freely one. Because I have been saying some others and I am still dealing with swelling. Mostly my legs but everywhere. I have like 10 or more extra pounds just in fluids on my body and it sucks. I am so ready to get over it.
Plus I am starting a new job on Monday, and I just don’t need this right now. It really affects me. There for a while my shoes wouldn’t even fit and I had to wear flip-flops.
Also, I will be looking for any interpretations of the dream I had and any questions you have about affirmations. I hope you found some of the info useful or interesting. Louise Hay is the author, in case you are interested.
Thank you for reading. Please check out my other website wordofmouthadnexus.com for info about other random things but not really stories, more like articles or let me know if you want me to advertise your business. I will definitely do that if I can.
Also, check out my YouTube channel for a couple of original songs I sing. I will be posting more songs and sharing my Sources and Methods for self-improvement, self-help type stuff.
And remember, if you’re going thru hell, Don’t stop and build your house there!
Been there done that, and I swear to you there is a solution and a better way.
If any of you want me to do Spiritual Mind Treatment for you to get a job, sell a house, attract a mate, heal a condition…whatever… just let me know in a comment that you need some prayers and then we can Private Message the details.
Also, some of you know I do watercolor painting and I have a jellyfish postcard thing I’ve been doing. If you want one of those let me know. Those are free and I do them in groups of ten. The fun is in the numbers, and seeing if the number you get shows up in your life, like sometimes people get their birth month or day.. and its all random. But it proves the Universe knows what It’s doing)and another part of my reasoning is to help the USPS and get my art out there and they are a colorful addition to a fridge or cork board.
I have also done special postcards for people if anyone is interested in sending something to a loved one to cheer them or whatever.
Have more fun by the hour!
Love and Peace,
P.S. Wow. I start out the above dream segment with It’s 5 am. Guess what? When I push the Publish button, it will be 5 am. I just stayed up all night typing. Again.
And just to show you that I really do the work.
