A friend told me about a type of meditation and mindset that could let you control your dreams, what is this called, and what are some tips to achieving it? --Laura
Plato said, that we should "Be kind, for everyone we meet is fighting a hard battle." Plato passed away in 347 bc, and this idea is as relevant now, as it was then.
It's all about vibration--frequencies. Every color, every sound we make or hear, and every piece of food or clothing we take to us carries a frequency. When we listen closely, we can tell what our body, mind and spirit needs, in the way we are attracted to colors, foods, songs and friends. When we allow ourselves to be fed in this way, we begin to loose the need to stuff ourselves. Stuffing too much food, buying too many clothes, addictions of all sorts are an inner call to try and fill a void within us. And the most amazing thing is that we most times don't even bother asking what it is that the emptiness would like to be filled with. We settle and in that settling, we become unbalanced.
Gardener's with a "Green Thumb" are not just lucky. They love the plants they are working with and give them attention. They are tuned in to when they need watering, trimming, or plant food--they truly care about these plants. And so it is with our relationships. Those relationships we nurture and give attention to--have the capacity to bloom and thrive. Although one of the tricky parts about paying attention to a relationship, is watching our mind and not letting it go off on wild tangents. Our minds have the ability to write whole scenarios, based on the skimpiest of "facts."
While on my journeys, I have come across a very wide span of beliefs...ideas that are working for people. Some I found too constrictive for me and others were far too broad or “fringie” to work for me. But of all the ideologies to which I was exposed, two stand out in my mind as very strong representatives of truth...and they are, seemingly, in direct opposition to each other. Both seem to make sense.
Intuition is our connection to the Prime Source within us. It is the little voice inside which gives us a physical response...a hic-up inside, when what is going on or being said outside of ourselves, is not in alignment with what we know to be our truth...the truth from which such intuition springs.
I find it incredibly delicious, to step back and watch life open to me. Any time we step out of our patterns, we are privie to watching life with new eyes.class="font-family-helvetica">
