The other night I brought back a dream and it stayed with me all day. A part of me was still in the dream as I felt not fully present to my life here like I normally do. It was a dream in which my deceased husband and I were in a property that he had bought and looking at what needed to be changed and updated. The land was wonderful, but the house needed much work from changing the plaster on the walls, to tearing off the roof and walls of a porch that had been enclosed, and putting in a new entrance to the home. I woke up as I was telling the workmen how I wanted to steps to look. There were other parts to the dream. It was so real!
It came to me that I was fully present in the dream and more interested in being there than here, thus a part of me stayed for that day. I find that even when I am fully present here, a part of my mind my goes off to another place, person, or situation for a moment. Staying fully present all the time so that I am aware of what is going on in this reality is rare for me. The other realms and planes call to me as I feel so light and free as a spirit; here is heavier and requires more effort from me as a human.
So, I balance time when I am here in the human capacity and when I out in the spirit world. The balance brings me joy as I honor both parts of myself.
Reggie has no trouble balancing time as a dog and a spirit for he sleeps a part of the day where he is off playing as a spirit, then he is fully present when he wakes up back here. He is never part there and part here. He will bark at me if I am out in the spirit world and he wants me to play with him. He makes me laugh as he knows how to take care of his needs.
