Dream Gates

At Christmas, a prayer for all seasons

Thank you, O Creator,
that we have risen this day
to the rising of this life.
May it be a day of blessing.

O Creator of all gifts
may a day of new beginnings
be our gift this day.

As the mist scatters
from the crest of the hills,
may any ill haze
clear from our minds
and may a mantle of protection
cloak our spirit, soul and body.

 

In this time of solstice and of Christmas, a dear friend sent me this prayer, written in her own hand, reminding me that I had sent it for her in a time of need many years ago. Gifts return, and sometimes the greatest function of a very good friend is to remind us of what we already know, but may have forgotten or failed to keep active in the hurry and distraction of our days.

Why the day of Saint Valentine is associated with romantic love is a mystery.

They are so obscure that the feast of St.Valentine was removed from the General

The best way to understand a dream
The best way to grasp the meaning of a dream, and to determine what action the dream requires, is to go back inside the dream and recover more of the story.
