Aahhhh, the sense of freedom that comes with having a telephone and internet again …. even if the phone line sounds as though someone nearby is operating heavy machinery it is a great relief to be in touch with the outside world again. Thanks for your commiserations while we were cut off. We all value connectedness now, even our smart-phone-free kind.
A few mornings ago I began to wake, and realised I was dreaming of flying. So I stayed in the dream for as long as possible. It was not a well-practised flight, rather the contrary. In a nondescript group of strangers I suddenly asked “Would you like to learn to fly?” Even as I spoke I wondered whether I could still fly anyway! No-one paid any attention to me, so I carefully leant forwards a little and levitated, all the time feeling as though I could suddenly crash back to the floor. I settled on top of a large cupboard, and noticed a few people were watching with interest. So I slowly descended, still feeling the possibility of a crash. However my confidence was growing so I did it again, with variations, and began to encourage others. Then I saw a large opening beyond a group listening to a guest speaker, so I flew out, like Peter Pan and Wendy, and soared around the garden under the stars. My control was very rusty and I did not land where I would have liked, but it was fun, and people seemed to realise it was possible!!
When a dear friend visited me that day we looked at some cards as a way to share our ideas and happenings with each other. How wonderful to see this among the three I drew; now I just have to stay aware of opportunities to fly, to spread my wings, to take my courage and make the leap!
All interpretations welcome dear friends!
(The card, Spread Your Wings, in the Archangel Oracle cards by Doreen Virtue was painted by artist James Yale, born in the same year as me)
