Embodiment

I know I said I was going to fast from online communication, but I've found that in releasing myself from feeling the need to keep up with all my online contacts, I'm freeing up the space for personal reflection that's been missing for a long time.

Thinking more about dreams, meta-story, goals, life choices. . . And stumbled (perhaps not for the first time) on the idea that "embodiment" is a concept that I should be applying to my dreams.

My dreams of what I want to be have almost always been safely projected into "somewhere else" -- fantasy locations that freed me from any obligation to take them seriously or do the work required to make them come true. I've already blogged to death the possible reasons behind that, but shied away from really getting into the antidotes.

The idea of embodiment brings a more wholistic attitude to it than simply "well, just start visualizing things in the real world." The gap is too big for that. Grounding the dreams in my body somehow feels more powerful. It's more immediate that visualizing something that is still yet to come.

Still working on this, obviously, but wanted to jot down the thoughts while they were fresh in my mind, before I go out for lunch with an attractive older gentleman I met at the sacred sexuality meet-up. . .

Dreaming is a trait shared by Water and Air. To embody those dreams requires Earth. And it takes work, and it's risky. Just dreaming is easy and safe.

But since when have we stuck to easy or safe?

Alas, I've been sticking to "easy and safe" in my career field for most of my life. I'm trying to find a way to make my dreams more solid while still being able to provide for Wolfling and myself. Still haven't found the right path yet, but gearing myself up to take more risks!
