Gosh, I have been sick for over a month now. Functional, but the cough exhausts me. I get this type of thing nearly every winter. And I live in a warm clime!

My dreams have been really cool. I always awaken feeling in awe. In one of them, my entire house was getting a major cleaning and fresh white paint. But in the upper rooms, my daughter's bedroom was in the bathroom for some reason and I was appalled at how dirty it was. I cleaned it out but was very distressed by it.

When I woke up, I knew what this meant and I had a discussion with my daughter. She needs to purge some feelings of hurt and pain from her past. We talked about it for a while and she said she thought she made peace with some issues...but she must have just buried them deeper. Repression. Bringing them out into the light, we were able to re-frame those events so she can transmute the feelings and energy from negative into positives. She saw how those very issues that held pain were actually placed there in her path in order to give her gifts and important learning opportunities.

She used to feel badly about herself. But now she sees how precious and valuable a soul she really is for having the courage to come down to experience some hard things. She is pure gold.

I am thankful for my dreams that help me with my family.
