Hints to help you see

QUESTION: Masters – Please help me with a recurring dream. I dream that I can’t open my eyes or I am blind or just simply can’t see. It happens in my dream state when I am interacting with others and when I need to do something or focus. I find the dream very upsetting and do not know what it is I am supposed to see. The other recurring dream I have is an office I used to work in years ago and this dream too is upsetting as I am always invisible or greatly unappreciated. Could you please enlighten me what these lessons are about? ~Darlene, Canada

ANSWER: Your higher self is giving you hints to help you deal with identity of self. You are very opinionated because it was expected during your upbringing. You find it difficult to listen to what others have to say without breaking in and giving your ideas to “clarify” the situation. You are thinking about what you are going to say instead of really listening to what is being said.

You are not “seeing” what is going on around you. You are trying to control the situation. You don’t “see” the moment and what is occurring. Start by observing the events around you. Do not try to contribute to the conversation or anticipate what is happening next. Go with the flow of the energy and feel what is being done and said. Get out of thinking about everything and start feeling what others are saying.

Your former workplace made you feel invisible because you did not have confidence enough to participate in the social scene. It was where you experienced the lessons of self-confidence, self-worth, and accepting responsibility for your behavior. These were difficult lessons for you; you still have doubts about your abilities even though you learned quite a bit there and it is where you first began to believe you were worthy.

When you have fears or doubts about a situation, that is like a sign post telling you this is something you want to learn. Go into your feelings and ask: Why am I feeling this way? Where do the feelings originate from? You could also use this technique on your dreams.
