I just put all of that in the title to get your attention :) I've been quiet since my first blog post because dreams and death have kept me pretty busy. Seems crazy to say that, I know but as a psychic medium (an unwilling one) I'm the vessel and channel to serve as needed. I offer intuitive readings and mediumship as a service on the side but haven't really promoted that much because my calling has been to help others in dream state. I'm the type of intuitive medium who doesn't call herself a medium because I didn't really want to be one. Being intuitive, psychic, whatever you want to label it, is fine, it's our birthright! It's kind of sexy and alluring right? Being able to talk to dead people though never sat right with me in the beginning and that is not the conversation starter most people readily accept. I know this because I've tried it a few times. I can't deny, however, that this is part of who I am and what I've been called to do, so I do it because I can't really say no. Believe me I've tried and they've reminded me that I agreed to this in another life, on another plane; probably when I was in a space ship, acting all brave and shit volunteering as a tribute because I wanted to be seen as a savior (it's a complex, I'm well aware!). I was 3 when I drew a photo of my ship and planet and my mom told my dad she knew there was something "not quite right about" me. There's still something not quite right about me but I now accept it as part of my charm LMAO
I grew up scared of the dark and was 6 when I told my mom there was something in my room under my bed. She was so tired from my nightly calls about these "imaginary creatures" that one night she wanted to prove me wrong, so she shoved the mattress back away from the wall to show me there was nothing there. I was huddled near the corner of the bed scared of what she'd find and accidentally got in the way and the force of the mattress knocked me back. I ended up in the ER that night. That's the same bed and room I remember waking up in during a foggy dream state, seeing my own body falling from the bed canopy and landing with a thump into the soft sheets below. The same room the image of the Jesus (the commercially accepted Jesus) mysteriously ended up on a picture of the letter "Y" in the alphabet art on my wall after my mom questioned why there was so much suffering in the world if Jesus really did exist. Maybe there was a reason I was so scared of the dark after all. Those beings that whispered my name at night weren't real to my parents but they were to me and looking back I guess they've been there my entire life.
In the past 5 years since reconnecting with and embracing my gifts I've learned that when the call comes to do the work we are all assigned at birth, there's really no getting out of it, especially if it deals with being a bridge to the spirit world. When I say the spirit world, to me that means whoever and whatever is over there in the world most can't see with their physical eyes. This world is accessible through our minds and hearts, our intuition guides us to the information we need from that side but most of us are so busy with our 3D earth lives that we dismiss these cues. We get messages with repeating number patterns we may notice, physical signs and billboards, literal writing on walls and in air, songs, scents, visions, and dreams. These messages can be from any number of beings from our passed loved ones to deities, angels, trolls, aliens, and dragons. (I'm not diving deeper into this on this post because that's not what this post is about even though I said it would be in the title LOL)
For purposes of this post, I want to talk about those of us who've been assigned as dream workers and travelers. I've studied dreams since I was 14 and none of my informal and formal studies prepared me for the possibility that what I was dreaming was actually real. I've been trained to see every dream character as an archetype or aspect of myself. When I analyze my dreams I look at the emotions, colors, numbers, symbols, characters, and any other detail that I can remember that may mirror what's occurring in my waking life. I track each dream and apply what I've learned to my waking life. This type of dream work has helped me to uncover repressed memories, mend relationships and identify blocks and it WAS working beautifully but I guess Spirit said my dreams were the perfect channel to reach me for other tasks too since I'm too scared to do the work while awake. About 3 years ago my dreams became more vivid and frequent. I started having premonitions and dreaming of events that would eventually happen days or weeks later. Then came the dreams of people I knew in real life that were either still living or passed who had messages or needed help solving a problem. Most recently I've been dreaming of people I don't know who are in real world situations in a transition, either close to death or just passed, or are alone and need comfort before moving on to the next phase. I posted about a dream I realized was very real on my Facebook page here that has had me in my feels the past week. This wasn't the first time I've learned of a dream scene being real but this experience was one of the most impactful because it hit so close to home. As a mother of a young child, that could've been (or could be in the future) my daughter or son.There's never an easy way to deal with the emotional fall out of learning you were the only soul there during a person's last moments but the more you're called to assist in these type of situations the easier it becomes to both believe it and accept all that comes with the work. Community is key in dealing with and accepting the realities of this role. I've searched for a community of astral travelers and dream workers that felt safe and familiar to no avail so I ended up creating my own eclectic group of dreamers and magicians to offer a safe space for those of us who work in our dreams while most of the world sleeps soundly.

IMPORTANT NOTE: There are indeed energies and entities in dream state that do not have your best interest at heart and if you are having issues with nightmares and feeling attacked in dreams, it's best to get professional guidance before diving deeper in dream work to help others.
