For the past few weeks I’ve been struggling with more angst, worry and sadness than usual. I rarely go to menopause as the reason for these shifts in my emotional state. Though hormones can cause emotional shifts, rarely am I affected that way. And my experience is that when I stay intentional about being with myself and my emotions – just like a mom with her child who isn’t feeling well, the source of the emotions becomes clear.
A few nights ago I had a series of dreams that were very deep and profound. Usually I don’t remember my dreams, so I took it seriously that something was being shared, and I better pay attention.
In the first dream, I was a musician on the back alleys of Las Vegas. I’d hit rock bottom, been cast out and now was on the shady side of all the neon lights of the Strip.
