Sometimes our lives are touched by events that change and shape us, and my story is no different. During a difficult period in my life, it felt like everything was falling apart. I felt a disconnection from life, I wasn’t living my life on purpose and I realised I wasn’t on my true path. I always had a feeling that I belonged elsewhere. I had a desperate pull to go home, but it was no home that I had ever known. I had no knowledge of what or where that was, but the pain of separation was immense. I experienced flashes of memories that felt like they were from a different time. I was missing something, the real me, my true self, the one that wasn’t afraid. Although this was a painful time, on reflection I can see now it was a gift. I had a chance to rebuild my life again, into one that acknowledged who I truly was. I only felt peace when I was in the dream world, there was no anxiety, no fear just a feeling of belonging. When I dreamt, I was completely free. I knew I needed to find a way to channel those feelings, to find a way to create a light in the darkness I found myself in, to Awaken.
It was during this time of awakening that I had a dream which was so vivid and real to me.
I was in my bedroom at night, there was a stillness in the air. I walked over to the window and opened the curtains, and just outside the window, were three full pink moons hanging in the night sky. It was the most beautiful sight I had ever seen. I was in awe of their beauty and felt so humble in their presence. They were close enough to touch, but as much as I wanted to I didn’t wish to be disrespectful to the moon, so I hesitated. However, in that moment, the moon told me I should reach out to it, but as I did, a piece broke away in my hand. It had the same texture as a chunk of wax. At first I felt quite upset, but the moon told me not to be, that it was gift. So I placed the broken piece of the moon into my pocket and felt total peace.
The next morning when I awoke I was so sure it had happened that I checked my pocket for the piece of the moon, but it was gone. It had never been there.
