Align the Divine

"The terrain of the intuitive path can feel strange like we need a road map...
this is where 'faith' is needed."

My dream was broken after having made the above comment on yesterday's post ~ Walking by Faith

I know other people's dreams may bring on a yawn, but this one is a thriller and auspicious I feel! 

See what you think?

The Dream~>~>

The path was narrow along the craggy edge,
I was scared, for to my left the rocky surface fell away sharply
and to my right there was, I thought, a deep, dark black sea,
although I barely dare look for fear of turning sideways I might lose my grip and fall in!

I gingerly crawled the shiny surface clinging tightly, scaling the ridge,
however ahead at a distance I could see the outline of
a mountain range with the sun just peeping through and lighting up
a scene that looked like what I imagined to be Shangri-La!

My immediate feeling however was one of fear and it was almost paralyzing me to the spot
but I knew I must keep moving as staying put was not the answer,
so I made small measured movements, keeping my eye on the distant mountains,
they propelled me forward.

After some time I managed to loosen my grip a little
as my measured movements became steadier and predictable,
though I never allowed myself to be distracted by the sheer drop to my left
having this great fear of heights and the dizzying effect that almost hypnotizes me to the edge!
As my fear began to lift a little I thought I caught sight of a shimmering light from the corner of my eye, I noticed what seemed to be different tones in the darkness to my right.

In the distance as the light advanced I could see the path widening out and so I picked up pace,
soon it became safe for me to get up from all fours and walk, as I did I began to notice the water to the right, by now fully bathed in light. I could plainly see instead of a deep, dark blackness as I had imagined there to be, just below the water's surface shone a myriad of tiny pebbles gently sloping away.  Not believing my eyes I ran backwards along the ridge edge for someway and yes the pebbles could be seen glinting in the sunlight all along the water's edge as far as the eye could see!!

Fear wants to keep a strong grip on all of us in some way...

Keep walking by faith
along life's intuitive edge,
align the divine.

I was in this dream with you. I have had one similar and turned out to be a journey through my broken heart. There also was a light, and like you, the light guided the "way" things were to be thought of and seen.
I was with you here this day. Thank you for sharing this with me.

Much Peace sent your way Ms. Foxy.

i love the shadow behind your graceful hand, a reclining heart. at first glance a dark shadow, then suddenly a flooding of comfort.

and your dream.
how often do our thoughts cloud a purer vision?
yes.
i willingly step into this epic sojourn with you,
embracing the mystery, walking forward in trust.

Wow, this is as deep as the black watery grave you dreamt of. Yet still, there is a lightness towards the end.

I need to get up off all fours and walk without trepidation.

It's when we stop walking that fear overcomes us.
The photo is elegant - the OM mudra - the Divine Source of all life! And what an incredible dream! So much symbolism. Yes, needing trust and intuition to follow the path/journey. I love this part: "small measured movements - keeping my eyes on the distant mountains....not allowing myself to be distracted." That's it for me - not allowing myself to be distracted. Wonderful post :)
Love 'align the divine' and gorgeous macro photo! Happy Weekend to you ^_^

It seems you lost your fear when you saw the bright, shining pebbles. I hope it stays away for you and you find the peace your heart was seeking.

I had a wise person tell me once... that when we dream a powerful dream, sometimes scary, it is so we do not forget the message of the dream, which isn't always scary, but very important. This is an amazing and auspicious dream and your haiku is a perfect distillation of what this means to you and all of us whom you have shared this with. Thank you! I will be thinking of you as I wind my way today up the Pacific coast on high cliffs and the ocean stretching far and wide!

I love how when you just ask the question, your intuitive self answers :). Intuitiion=soul, logic=human. This is how I see it. We need both, but in the end we must always open ourselves and surrender to intuition, because we humans do not have all the answers, and we never will :).

big hugs

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 


I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
