Right in the left shoulder, I didn’t feel any pain and I wondered if I had really been shot. I looked down and saw the blood. I remember thinking, “oh well, at least it doesn’t hurt.” Then I woke up.
So why am I telling you about this dream? Because it has an important message about healing. Well, it does for me.
When it’s time to deal with something, it can feel scary as hell. Fear of the unknown will do it to you every time.
Your memories, emotions and feelings, are all lurking in the background of your mind. You know that they are there because your life isn’t quite the way you want it to be. You’re struggling with your weight. You’re unhappy in your relationship, Your job is stressful .… and the only way to cope, is to distract yourself with what seems like pleasure. Food, drink, computer, shopping, etc.
If you think about focusing on the “problem,” you can feel the discomfort. Just a bit of discomfort is enough to send you to the fridge. So the thought of feeling it and dealing with it, seems like a bad idea.
You think; ‘I can’t handle this’, ‘I don’t want to deal with this’ or maybe you think that there is something wrong with you.
This a common occurrence. One that happens so fast you’re almost not aware of it. Except, like the definition of insanity… you keep doing the same thing over and over, thinking it will be different.
How many times will you think you can figure it out? No more times. Because…
In my dream, the shot represents the focusing, the blood represents the letting go of the emotions, and the fact that it didn’t hurt represents that I can do this and I will be ok. I don’t have to be afraid.
My teacher says “you can’t use logic to solve an emotional problem” It’s true! You can’t think about it, You have to feel about it.
I have done a lot of this work on myself, so I am surprised at this piece that is showing up for me. Then I remember someone once said “your not done until your dead”
Well, that bullet didn’t kill me, so I guess its time for more healing and growth.
