I had a wonderful dream last night involving a group of friends. We were in this beautiful place under the night sky and we were gathered to dream together. So we all lay down in the grass, making a dream wheel – our heads together forming a circle and our bodies splayed out like spokes of the wheel. And we set the intention to have a mutual dream where we all shared the same dreamscape and experience. We sealed our intention by softly singing a little made-up song round about dream, dream, dream set to the tune of row, row, row your boat.
We immediately fell asleep and found ourselves in a physical structure that resembled our dream wheel. There was an open space in the center – a courtyard – and each of us had a personal room/space off this courtyard, like a pie-wedged spoke of the wheel. Our private spaces were treasure rooms, each filled with opulent wonders and simple things of beauty – everything was special and meaningful and totally awesome. Each of our collections was different and personal and as unique as we each are, but we also knew we could share our stories about our treasures and there was a gift in that. So we each took turns and brought one treasure/one object/one thought into the center of the circle and shared. It was the best version of show-and-tell ever!
I love that dream! And I’m inspired by the concept of show-and-tell as well. So today I bring into the center of our circle here something that delights me no end.
I recently stumbled across the work of Kim Loftis in one of those serendipitous how-did-that-happen ways that makes you know something good and magical is afoot. She does lots of things, but what immediately caught my attention was her Prayersongs. I got an immediate tingle when I just saw the word, and then when I listened to one – wow! “Prayersongs are melodic, unaccompanied songs, inspired by Spirit” and they are really powerful and beautiful. She also does custom Prayersongs and I knew immediately I wanted one. It arrived yesterday and I love it! It feels like a perfect reminder, a perfect fit, a perfect prayer. Here’s a brief clip so you can have a peek at the treasure she created for me:
Lovely isn’t it? If you liked it consider heading over to her site. She’s doing some revamping but there’s lots to explore and you might want to get on her mailing list to be updated when the new pieces are in place.
The Prayersong she has posted on the site is called “From a Space of Openness”. I think it’s gorgeous and very powerful as well. Listening to it literally opens a spaciousness around everything and that feels so good. Is there something that needs some spaciousness in your life, in your day? I bet this can help.
