I had a dream.
I am a skeleton. I watch other skeletons walk through a door and then come out with their bodies intact. A skeleton walks in and holds the door open for me with his bony foot. I walk through. I emerge feeling peaceful, a spiritual human being who has little need for possessions. I feel great love for the Earth and its inhabitants.
In dreams, bones are associated with spiritual development. They are the backbone of our being and our personal beliefs, they are our underlying strengths that are not easily seen.
“From her very flesh and blood and from the constant cycles of filling and emptying the red vase in her belly, a woman understands physically, emotionally, and spiritually that zeniths fade and expire, and what is left is reborn in unexpected ways and by inspired means, only to fall back to nothing, and yet be reconceived again in full glory.” Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype.
Too often we forget that we’re spiritual beings traveling this lifetime in a physical vehicle. When you come to a full understanding that you are a spiritual being, and all the things that go along with that understanding, such as meditation, gratitude, a connection to all life, compassion, love, and a true appreciation of being alive, daily problems and challenges will become easier and lighter.
