[Someone calls out my name; it comes from the back door. “Please let me in! I want to come in!” I think it's Dewey, my dog, and I am astonished. "Wow, my dog can talk! " I open the door and there is no one outside. In a couple of seconds, I realize it was not human, but a spirit. I briefly panic, but then I begin to pray. I call in the big guns: Jesus, Archangel Michael, and others. I transform into my spiritual defense mode and begin clearing the house. I decide to offer reiki to all those present inside the house.]
This is a part of a dream I had previously encountered a couple of months back. Although the dream was brief during the dream state, it felt intense and complex to me. I am a vivid dreamer, so I keep a dream journal by my bedside so I may document my journey. Maintaining a dream journal helps me to understand my complex subconscious and connects me to the spirit world. My dreams open pathways to healing. I journal my dreams, as they give me innate wisdom and help me maintain my sanity while confirming its truth in days to follow. Such was the case with this dream.
Last year I was on a personal journey to connect more to my physical body and ground myself to Mother Earth. Several things I did was eat healthy, join a fitness program and continue to explore my spiritual and inner most thoughts. In the process I released 20 lbs I was holding on to since my first child was born, he is 16 now. It happened at home when I was immersed in a brief meditative yoga routine, to be precise when I was doing the Parivrtta Anjaneyasana yoga pose. I heard the same voice I heard in my dream the previous night “please let me in” “I want to come in”. I froze the voice startled me. I felt myself being pulled back into my dream. I mindfully stayed connected to my yoga pose grounding myself to my present. Then I heard it again “Please let me in” “I want to come in” “pleaseeeeeee….” As twisted as the yoga pose was at that very moment my laughter took me by surprise. The voice I was hearing and the voice in my dream were familiar.... it was my voice!! I was speechless as I realized it was me all this while pleading myself to allow me in. I was working on connecting and grounding myself wasn't I? How the heck did I miss this? My rational mind constantly being in an overdrive mode almost let this slip by. In my sleep my subconscious had allowed my higher self to connect. During meditative yoga I was open to receiving and I reconnected. How powerful is that?!
Parivrtta anjaneyasana is believed to activate the third eye / sixth chakra. The third eye / sixth chakra is the body's intuitive connection, an energy source and vitality center, providing confidence, internal strength and courage. Activating the third eye/ sixth chakra through this yoga pose is believed to dispel fear and insecurity.
Positive affirmations relating to the third eye / sixth chakra that helps me stay grounded and connected.
