Show me the way to go home!

I don’t need to be a PhD psychologist to know that if I have the same dream over and over and over that perhaps there is a message in there for me somewhere!  For the past  seven years (at least) I have had the same dream – usually nightly.  The details differ, but the gist is the same – I am traveling somewhere and trying to get  home but cannot.  Either I can’t find my tickets, passport or luggage, or the stuff that goes in my luggage, or I can’t find my kids (usually Wil) or I’m on the wrong road, the path is somehow blocked or as in the case last night, I was on the wrong train.    Each time the dream ends in frustration and I wake up feeling cheated and incomplete.  Last night, for the first time in a long time, the dream ended not in frustration but with a glimpse of hopefulness.  In this dream, I got off the wrong train and found a ticket counter.  The man at the ticket counter (who was really cute by the way….) offered to give me a ride home.  Maybe someday this dream will end with me getting home!  I can always hope, right?

In the complative life, dreams are considered an important vehicle of communication between our Divine Source/Higher self and ourselves.  Dreams are one of the ways in which God communicates truth, direction, insight, wisdom to us.  Knowing that dreams exist within the world of myth and metaphor, the invitation is to bring our dreams into our prayer, asking the Divine to reveal the truth beyond the images. 

This then will be the invitation for me today, to ask God to help me to understand the truth beyond the pictures.  What is the home to which I am trying to return?  Who/what will be the helpers along the path?  So, God…..will you please show me the way to get home?

  1. You getting OFF the wrong train is SO exciting Lauri!! Do you think that this might indicate that the means you’ve been using repeatedly to rediscover and embrace your Godself, or “home”, is the “wrong train”? Did you actually allow yourself to be driven home by a new means, the ticket agent, or not? This is SUCH a positive dream and what suspense!! You are clearly doing something right and have made a major shift. Be sure to let us know what happens next!

  2. You are such a brilliant writer. I love your blog. I, too, have been searching for the deeper meanings of life and beyond, more so than ever since losing my son to suicide in October. One of the books that helped me understand the meaning of “home” is “Home With God” written by Neale Donald Walsch. To understand the physics behind that home as well as the soul, the afterlife, how thought creates reality, etc., I suggest two books: The Hidden Domain and My Big TOE (theory of everything). The latter is a trilogy written by a physicist who performed considerable research on consciousness, etc. Keep up the good work. You are an inspiration! I hope you visit my blog. It’s been healing for me as has yours.
