Your dreams, emotions, accomplishments, losses, mistakes, are all part of you and what makes you human on your life journey. As a soul tender, I want to share with you something I learned from one of my spiritual teachers, Edith, when I was in my 20’s. Edith used to advise me not to share my hopes and dreams with people that could not whole heartedly support me. At first, this puzzled me as I felt as if I was withholding parts of myself from others. However, as I grew older and wiser, I learned the truth of what Edith was teaching.
Your dreams are like tender shoots emerging from the earth and you can nurture and protect them as well. One way you can do this is to share with loving, supportive people who can visualize and see the truth of who you are. This supportive energy can assist your dreams in taking flight.
Why would someone not support your hopes and dreams ? The reasons are numerous, but the common thread is that your sharing can bring up feelings about yet unrealized dreams for another person. This may show up as jealousy, fear, negativity and naysaying. The trigger can cause the other person to negate and question our dream, or make a cutting comment passively, jokingly, or directly as they believe it will elevate them and lessen their deeper feelings.
Find your circle, tribe, shaman, therapist, coach or best friend and ask them to see the best for you.
