Our Inner Life

One of the first things I do in the morning is write down my dreams in a journal.  Often in the middle of the night, I will wake up from a dream and jot down the things that stood out in the dream.  In the morning I will fill in the blanks.  I then go over my symbols and began the interpretation of each symbol.  After years of practice, I can easily understand my unique dream symbols and those that are universal.  After years of dedication, I am able to navigate my life by working with my dreams.
We all have an inner life, inner thoughts, and inner voice.  Those who do believe in a spiritual source of their inner life tend to want to unite their interior and exterior lives as much as possible as an authentic expression of love.  Consider you dreams, hopes, passions, beliefs, visions, and longings.  A great way to honor your inner life is by keeping a journal.

Morning Soul

I began my first blog by giving you the reader some info. about myself. Everyday a have the same routine. I wake up around 7 am to get my son off to school. I have a cup of coffee w/ toast or muffin, and watch GMA. I then put aside 30 min to do yoga or my elliptical trainer. During my workout I listen to music. Music is a way of engaging soul into everyday life. I like to listen to Casting Crowns, City of Angels, or Enigma. Sometimes I will rock out!! But it's important to center yourself & doing it first thing in the morning is the best time. I then take 10-15 min to meditate (that is about all my 2 yr. old will allow). I usually will just focus on my breathing (watching your chest rise & fall works good if your just starting out). I then visualize a white bubble around me. Doing this gives you protection from any negativity. I then am ready to start my day!
