A dream lesson: “she’s not dead, just dormant”
For months, I’ve had this reoccurring dream that my favorite hibiscus tree “HER” suddenly withers, loosing all of her leaves. In this reality, I’m always in a intense state of shock and grief. I am always teary-eyed wondering what I could’ve possibly done wrong or differently to be what she needs.
I know it’s “just a tree” but I consider HER a part of me…we’ve grown together and literally blossomed(see pic below). So for awhile I’d wake up in frenzy just to ensure she was still green. In short, in my soul I’ve connected to the idea that “I am her”.
Fast forward to this moment, where she looks EXACTLY as I dreamed. The oddest thing is that after all the anxiety from the dream and the what-ifs…*sigh* 🤦🏾♀️I don’t even feel the same about my true reality. The joy in my heart is so unexpected. ❤️🔥
Each dream (although fear-filled) prepared me for this moment and this appreciation for the inevitable cycle of life with HER. Each dream gave a different lesson and perspective that eased my worldly pain when the truth would finally reveal itself.
From one dream, I learned how precious life is to me - ANY LIFE , ALL LIFE. From another, I learned about my false illusion of control and that I cannot stop Gods change, a season, and certainly not death.
The most important lesson for me is to trust that GOD 👏🏾HAS 👏🏾GOT👏🏾 THIS👏🏾. I just need to continue to lovingly listen, look for lessons, and control what I can because I AM HER, she is not dead, she’s dormant…resting before an evolutionary spring.
Thank you God for the reality check, & a soulfull shoutout to me for being curious enough to come to this place in my journey...
Amen 🙏🏾 Asé 🙏🏾Thank you!
