I do believe you could accomplish a lot of healing if you started a dream journal. Once you start recognizing what your dreams are about, you'll be able to move forward. Have the Ah-HA! experience that accelerates growth and healing...
I'm going to post a few really good dream interpretation sites (they just have dictionaries I trust/that make sense...which if you're just beginning will get you started...but as you go, you won't need them anymore because you'll see the symbols pretty clearly) over on the new Dream Forum so they'll be there if you need them. You can also email me personally if you have a dream within the next while that you feel is significant.
The cats biting you. Cats are feminine...subconscious. You subconscious is trying to tell you something. I found this: "Cats also can be associated with a woman’s sexuality. For example, if a cat is aggressive, scratches you, or jumps on you, it may indicate difficulty with your sexuality, or mixed feelings regarding your desire for children."
It seems, maybe, that the area that is the weakest for you is your sexual/reproductive organs? So...any emotional or physical or spiritual issues will magnetize to that area.....You know what I mean? I'm not saying that you have cancer or anything like that - just that that is the area that you need to heal. The cats are telling you!
If your night-time is spent exhausting yourself, yet not having the energy...what is your day-time like? Are they a reflection of each other....or?
I would definitely start a dream journal Yemaya! You will find out fascinating things about yourself and you'll be able to solve this thing...
Try this: Close your eyes and imagine your 2nd chakra spinning, spinning spinning....it's orange with maybe a titch of yellow and/or red...Just below the navel. Then, with your minds eye draw a line from the spinning 2nd chakra to your reproductive organs....bathe them with the regenerative healing energy that is streaming out of the 2nd chakra and along the line to your organs. See your organs bathed in this healing energy.
This is about having a healthy 2nd chakra: "Sexual and Emotional Power - helps you access your past and release and forgive what no longer belongs in your life. You are able to survey your past and to imagine and envision your future. You seek to balance the past and future so that you sense the direction in which your life is moving. You are also able to combine the powerful energy of sexuality with true tenderness in order to deepen relationships with a partner."
and..."Life Steward - helps you remember the dreams of the past, pulling into your life and the lives of others that which is still relevant and pertinent. At the same time you are able to encourage yourself and others to cast their dreams toward the future to imagine the direction in which they choose to move. Through this role you can birth new ideas and marry them to other ideas from your past. You are the teacher and the nurturer, the way-shower toward new directions for yourself and humanity. This role is the teacher, educator, dreamer and storyteller aspect of the healer archetype."
Hope to hear from you, Yemaya!
