365 Inspirations—192: Winds of Change

Blue Moon

“You see things; you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, 'Why not?”—George Bernard Shaw

The wind is whirling in my world.

Winds of change have come, but I'm still working out the details. I'm still just getting little pieces. It's like a gigantic puzzle I'm putting together, but I have no idea what it will look like in the end.

So for now, it's just flashes and images. Last night I had a dream I was on a huge wide river on a raft drifting. Then the current picked up and I was going over rapids. I couldn't see where I was going, but I did not feel scared. I trusted that I would be led to the right place.

I got off at a rocky shore and started to climb huge boulders up the side of a mountain. It was so steep and jagged. The view below me was amazing and scary at the same time. I had almost made it to the top when a hawk circled around and landed almost on me thinking I was food. I shooed him away. Then I scrambled up a few more rocks.

Inches from the top,  a bald eagle was peering down at me from a nearby tree branch. We were looking straight into each others eyes. I was not his prey, I was him and he was me.

Beyond the eagle, I could see berries in a tree. There were three kinds of berries growing off one branch and they looked enticing, but I did not want to disturb the eagle's turf any longer and slowly made my way back down.

Lots of these kinds of dreams about nature, the earth and animals have been coming to me. A new book is forming. I want to tell you about it. But right now I'm just flowing with these winds of change and it's so exciting.

Did you ever have a very vivid dream that you remembered? Did it have any significance for you in your life?


  1. I wish I could remember my dreams that vividly! It's wonderful that you are facing these winds of change unafraid and open. I'll look forward to hearing more about them!

    1. Thanks Tina for these kinds words. The only thing I can think of to do is face these winds of change. It makes the ride a whole lot easier!

  2. Amazing dream Katherine!! A true sign that some powerful work is going on inside you. This post resonates so much for me now - I am right there with you!

    Strong, vivid dreams always appear when I am going through deep transition - always reminding me that something, or someone, is guiding my way.

    1. Thank you! Yes, I feel some powerful work is going on inside me AND I feel like it has nothing to do with the small "me". It's something on a grander scale. I'm letting go and embracing it. I do feel like I'm being guided. Perhaps I've let go of trying to control things and now life is unfolding as it is meant to unfold, just like the rest of nature. Instead of feeling afraid, I feel inspired and excited about the mystery of life. It is a gift, this life, and I have a lot of gratitude!
