Do Not Face the Dark with Dread

the night and balance cards from the dreamscapes oracle by matt hughes

As you rest your weary head,

Do not face the dark with dread.

For in the dark is where you’ll find

True harmony within your mind.

I don’t know what it is about Matt HughesDreamscape Oracle that made me wax poetic at poetry at past 10pm, but it is what it is.

For long while, I honestly didn’t have the best relationship with the night and my dreams. I would go to sleep with fear in my heart. Then I would wake with tears in my eyes and stifled screams in my throat. I was plagued by night terrors. It came to a point where I was blocking out my dreams just to get a good night’s rest. It got to a point where I couldn’t remember anything from my dreams, even if I wanted to.

I eventually realized that all those nightmares were just ME crying out for balance. As I felt myself becoming stronger and more grounded throughout my healing process, I started opening myself up to my dreams again.

Now my dreams are back. I may not remember all of them, but I remember enough. Some are dull and gray. Some are bright and vivid. Some are crystal clear. Some I can barely make sense of. But more importantly: None of them scare me anymore.
