ATTEEENNNNNNTIOOOON!!!!!!!! A Grandmother Dream...
(Gisborne, New Zealand)
I have been trying to do the 'gratitude thing', but doubt kept creeping into my mind.
I could feel myself slipping back into my old worldly ways. (Sad, grumpy for no reason, negative thoughts and so on).
Till I had this dream the other night (Tues 17/10): it was about my grandmother who passed away over 20yrs ago (she played a major role in my upbringing).
In my dream she is tending to a garden, and the sky had a multitude of colors in it, like someone grabbed the rainbow and speared it across the sky and I am excited to see her and I just can't wait to reach her.
When I finally do reach her, she stops me before I can touch her. I am at arms length away from her and she is a bit disappointed with me, she screams at me
PAY ATTENTION!!! PAY ATTENTION!!! PAY ATTENTION...
I ask her 'to what'? But she is angry with me and she keeps yelling at me 'PAY ATTENTION! PAY ATTENTION! PAY ATTENTION!' and as my dream faded I could still hear her saying those words.
Now when I awoke, my dream was very clear but I didn't know what she meant. Did she mean pay attention to what she was doing in a garden? What she was saying? What was happening around her and I at the time?
Then yesterday lunch time (Wed 18/10) it hit me like a ton of bricks. I got thinking about the gratitude thing and it ended like this...
Pay attention or focus on what you want, not what you don't want.
Pay attention or focus on what you have.
Pay attention or focus on what you like.
Pay attention or focus on what feels good.
Pay attention or focus on the solution.
Pay attention or focus on the joy.
Pay attention or focus on the abundance.
Pay attention or focus on why it WILL happen.
Pay attention or focus on having it all.
Pay attention or focus on where you're going.
Oops! honestly I really didn't do this or did I know systematically.
I am so thankful for my grandmother's dream, now I know what she meant... Ha! and here I was trying to figure out if I had to watch her tend her garden. No, she wanted me to tend to my own garden, in my mind.
Even from the grave and dreams, The Universe works in mysterious ways... If that was The Universe's way of waking me up to gratitude... So be it...
Thank you so much I just had to share this, its like a miracle or a gift from unexpected coincidence.
