I have said that I am grateful for my intuition and I am.  I find myself questioning the information I keep getting.  Much like the Friday of the Paris attacks, when Paris was screaming at me all day, someone is trying to get my attention in my dreams.  The person is someone I care about but is absent from my life.  Four times in the past two weeks I have dreamed about him.  Once, it woke me in the middle of the night and by the time I wrote down the dream, I noticed a crow outside my window, cawing.  When I was in writing school, the Raven spirit landed on my shoulder in a dream and so I take crows and ravens as serious messengers. I am grateful that the crow has brought me so many dreams to alert me and take my attention to my friend.  I don’t know what the issue is, with him, and I don’t need to know. The important thing is that I think I am being called again and I must listen and send my attention, love and light to him.

This week I have been rolling around some writing ideas in my mind and contacting people with requests for interviews.  I am grateful that a couple have come back with positive replies.  I am also enjoying rolling around a short story in my mind.  If writing a short story (first draft) might take 12 hours at the computer then it probably takes at least 48 hours of solid attention spread over time to let the unconscious roll over the associations and images. I am grateful for the space to let ideas develop, right now.

I am grateful for my warm duvet today.  I am feeling a little worse for wear after a few nights out at the galleries this week.  My warm and cozy duvet has been a perfect place for an afternoon nap. And sleep seems important, not least because this is where I am being called to do my healing work.

It was a joy to go to a couple of great art shows this week.  The first was a new exhibition featuring some pieces by Gilbert & George and the second was an exhibition which highlighted the role of social media in promoting the visual statement and the role of the visual statement in promoting oneself on social media. It was interesting and I met some very interesting strangers at both events.

I have been a little preoccupied by my dreams over the last couple of days.  One thing I really experience is his absence, even in my dream.  Although absence is normally not something we would associate with Oneness, the sensing of the absence has oddly brought me into engagement and connection with him.  I am in tune with the messages about him that Oneness is sending me, even if I don’t fully understand them.

And of course, sending  my attention, focus and healing energy in the direction in which I am being called is my service for the last few days.

 

Mama Cass sang my favourite version of this song, but I quite like this remix by blnd!

 

And so it remains only to ask:

 

For what are you grateful, today?
