I had a dream. This morning. I had gone back to bed after meditating. I wasn’t feeling well. And then, the dream. I was with so many people I loved. I wouldn’t get out of bed. I was sad and weak. My hair was snagging on my rings and being pulled out in masses as I was trying to ask the gang where they were headed . I didn’t feel. The pulling of the hair. ..but I knew I looked scary to them. So I rallied. I followed. But was left behind. And lost. And knew, in this haze of a dream that I didn’t fit in with the living. I would find a way to die. This isn’t necessarily a post about disease and the trauma of that. I do not feel sorry for myself in life. At all. I believe in unraveling the necklace to make it useful again. And sometimes the knots are tight and difficult to undo. So we must be gentle with our traumas. Our selves. I cry. I release. I shake. I release. I meditate and release. And some days it can feel too much. No matter the challenge. This is normal. For me. But now I don’t self medicate with a drink as I did since childhood. I feel it. It hurts. And then the whispers of the demons retreat and I see the sky. And maybe crawl back in bed if I can. And I feel it more. Under the covers. Until the lesser darkness retreats fully and I am ready to wash my face. And find the light. With love. In sickness and in health. Selma. #thisislife #thisisok
