I had a dream about the daughter of my former colleague. Ruthie was the most compassionate and best-loved counselor I’ve ever known. She always made time for clients who needed her in spite of the mountains of paperwork piling up, in spite of the extra hours of overtime, in spite of commendations that we “worked tirelessly,” yet we got plenty tired.
My colleague came down with cancer while serving in the trenches, helping others fight the monster of addiction. For many months, she continued to work her heart out. But there came a time when the physical pain was too much. She put up a brave fight, but she had to go home. Ruthie died a couple of years ago.
Now, to the dream I had two weeks ago:
I was at a community event organized by Ruthie’s daughter, B. I saw my former colleague in the background, beaming her proud mama smile at her daughter from across the room. Later, I went up to B, gave her a big hug, and handed her a package of disposable razors.
After I woke up, I debated about whether I should tell B about the dream. I’ve run into her around town, and we are friends on Facebook. But why would I give her razors?
In spite of the weirdness, I sent B a Facebook message about the dream. She responded with excitement because she’s in the process of organizing a community event in memory of her mother. She said she knows her mother is happy. And she told me she keeps forgetting to buy razors.
I think I’m supposed to help B with this event. We’re planning to meet later today.
I can still see her mama’s big, beautiful smile.

Truly beautiful. Loved ones come to us in so many different ways. I’m glad you decided to share the dream with B 😊

Me, too! As time goes on, I am becoming more aware of how these things work. It’s quietly exciting. 🙂

I think your friend in spirit obviously wants you two to get together.. Keep following your instincts dear JoAnna.. Wonderful when we follow our instincts.. Dreams can be so revealing .. And Dreamtime is getting more vivid and interesting these days.. 🙂

Thanks for this encouragement, Sue. I don’t consciously remember many of my sleeping dreams lately, but this one was vivid stayed with me. The dream, or maybe RT, showed me a path that wanted to be followed. I look forward to more clarity in my dreams. 🙂

Love how you followed your heart, and your dream, and God! Blessings on your meeting with your friend today x

Thank you, Leila. B opened our meeting today with a song we all sang followed by a prayer. Not typical for meetings I usually attend, but it sure gave me confirmation I belonged there. I’m glad I went and that I’ll be helping with this project. x

Wonderful! I am glad this dream sparked you to connect with B, and I wish you great success with the event.
August 3, 2017 at 9:12 pm
Thanks, Joey. I think I’m going to enjoy having a supportive role.

This is so great! Sometimes when I get weird dreams or interesting “hits” that don’t necessarily make sense to me, I tell the person it was about, and often it is a good message for them, or they know exactly why I said it. Then again sometimes it falls flat, but it is so worth it when it really fits for someone.
Have fun with B and the event!

Yes! I’m beginning to realized it’s worth mentioning in most cases. There’s always the possibility of planting a seed or a subtle shift. Not exactly what I mean by that other than a growing awareness.

you are in touch with your inner self!
August 4, 2017 at 11:24 pm
Sometimes. Thank you for the affirmation!
August 4, 2017 at 12:04 pm
aww how beautiful, sometimes those messages have a greater meaning and i think you have found yours! 🙂 All the best!
August 4, 2017 at 11:27 pm
Yes, the greater meaning seems to be unfolding. Thank you! Best to you, too!
