Last night I asked for dream guidance about why I've been having weird pain in my body for several years now. I'm a professional level researcher and have been examining this from many different angles for quite some time now. I had come to the conclusion that the root cause was mainly emotional/stress related though certain foods make it better or worse and that there is some level of physical damage that is in the process of healing.
Though I am obviously getting better and better every day (yay!) I find that the dream world often reflects direct lessons which can be helpful.
The dream I had involved a small deformed little girl who was pinching me HARD at my main source of pain and whining, "I don't know if I'm making enough monnnnnnnney!!!!!"
Today giving the whiny girl a cuddle seems to be a useful visualization when the pain arises :)
Perhaps the increased awareness of this issue is a function of visiting Baltimore/DC suburbs in the USA this week, where everyone seems to be talking about "the economy" and more people are focused on the news' version of reality. While it's true many industries and systems are falling, there are always new opportunities (death=rebirth) and I *know* things turn out far better than most can imagine. Adaptability is key.
Though I've had my ups and downs financially, I believe it's all been a perfect series of experiences full of diverse and blessed lessons for my spiritual growth (which is more important to me than my "career" though I know I'm being guided into beautiful new work directions) and I've noticed that every day, everything I need has been there. In the grand scope of life experiences on Earth today, I am truly rich.
Here's a more useful belief system: All is love, everything is provided.
a related passage:
Most people are deeply scripted in what I call the Scarcity Mentality. They see life as having only so much, as though there were only one pie out there. And if someone were to get a big piece of the pie, it would mean less for everybody else.
The Scarcity Mentality is the zero-sum paradigm of life. People with a Scarcity Mentality have a very difficult time sharing recognition and credit, power or profit – even with those who help in the production. The also have a a very hard time being genuinely happy for the success of other people.
The Abundance Mentality, on the other hand, flow out of a deep inner sense of personal worth and security. It is the paradigm that there is plenty out there and enough to spare for everybody. It results in sharing of prestige, of recognition, of profits, of decision making. It opens possibilities, options, alternatives, and creativity. -- Steven Covey
