Awhile back I had the most incredible dream.
In it, I was walking my dog through an urban setting. I came across a lost, dirty puppy. She was whining, and hiding behind a dumpster. I called her to me, but she was too afraid. I couldn’t chase her for fear she’d run into traffic and get herself run over. I said to my dog, Arya, “I can’t help her if she doesn’t trust me.” Arya nodded in agreement. I asked the angels to watch over her, all alone in this busy city, and walked on slowly in case she changed her mind about asking for help.
In a few steps I realized she was right on my heels. She had chosen to follow us! I scooped her up in my right arm, and Arya in my left. Though my dog weighs 45 pounds she was light as a feather.
I looked the puppy in the face and told her I vowed to find her family. But there were all kinds of complicating factors happening which made that scenario more and more unlikely. I told her that if I failed, if I couldn’t find her home, she’d be safe with me and we’d welcome her into ours. I assured her, “Please know this: There is no scenario where this does not work out for you.”
I woke up feeling like I had received an energetic transmission, a direct infusion of love. I felt infallible and cherished.
I had a sense that I was the puppy. And the universe had just assured me that I was in the arms of some benevolent force, effortlessly carrying my weight, clearing the way for me.
The words, “Please know this: There is no scenario where this does not work out for you,” were seared into my consciousness. With no effort at all, I believed them.
I still do.
I’m carrying the feeling of this– that we’re not alone here, life isn’t random, it’s just waiting for us to plug into its unwavering power source, our own spirit. We’re being cared for, supported, if we’d only open to it and accept the hand there to assist us, in whatever form we might see it take.
I’m walking hand-in-hand with this feeling, into the year of 2019.
Thank you, 2018, for your divine wisdom. May humanity learn from all of it, every moment.
2019…we’re all yours.
