I hope everyone is doing well! It's so surreal to think we're already in July. It honestly feels like we were just in 2020/2021, yet we're already over halfway through 2022. Time just doesn't feel real. Hopefully, the energies have treated you well; it's been feeling rather intense here. Lots of strange occurrences, lack of motivation, feeling off, and the like. It could be in part to the recent new moon. If you want to know more about it, you can check out the video below.
My dream recall was pretty fuzzy from Sunday night/Monday morning, partially due to Tsuki waking me up multiple times. There was something about my parents and sister getting back early from their cruise. When I asked why they were back so early, my sister said something about HIV. Not sure what that was about. There was also something about Pokémon. Togepi befriended a baby Kangaskhan. Team Rocket tried to steal Pokémon and used this large smokescreen device before getting sent off like usual. There was also like this new Pokémon game. You went into these dungeon like areas, and I stumbled across the original legendary birds. There was some new kind of healing system, too. More happened, but that's all I could remember.
My dream recall was hazy when I woke up on Tuesday morning. There was something about reviews, but that's all I could remember upon waking. I didn't remember much from my dreams when I woke up Wednesday morning .My coworker from before care randomly showed up. He seemed to want to show me something in a video game; there was an homage to Pikachu in some game. He also just seemed to miss our conversations. After chatting with me for awhile, he decided to leave. There was also something else about a school. I think there was school dismissal, too, but specific details were rather hazy. More happened, but that's all I could recall when I woke up in the morning.
My dream recall was pretty fuzzy when I woke up on Thursday morning. There was something about reviews, but specific details eluded me. I knew a lot happened in my dream when I woke up on Friday morning, but the specific details were pretty hazy. There was something about fusion/hybrid beings. I want to say it had something to do with lions and dragons and maybe some other creatures. Pretty sure they were part human and part other. There was something about Sailor Scouts involved. There was something about this father wanting things to be super quiet in his house or his temper would explode. There was something about travel and unexpected friendships/bonds forming. A girl got swept away into a river or lake because of some individual wrecking havoc; this boy that swore he would never be friends with her/help her, ended up saving her because no one else was around to help and since, despite it all, he didn't want her to die. There might have been a budding romance between the two after that point. Much more happened, but remembering the details upon waking proved tricky. My dream recall was super fuzzy Friday morning, and I couldn't remember what happened.
A lot happened in my dream from Friday night/Saturday morning. It seemed to have a heavy space theme. I kept spotting spacecraft and aliens. One time happened while I was sitting on the couch either before dinner or after it. I saw what seemed to be a star in the sky, but it started moving and growing larger. A spaceship with aliens became perfectly visible over the houses on the street; there was no mistaking it. I was surprised and called my mom over to the window so she could witness it, too. She kept dawdling, and the spacecraft left right before she got over. She didn't believe me when I shared what I found. Pretty sure I shared the experience with Corliss and that InuYasha characters, like Sesshomaru, ended up coming from space/the ships. There was something about getting books at the library. The next thing I knew, I was hanging out with April as it was getting dark. We kept seeing spacecraft and were impressed. We seemed to stop at this shopping plaza near a Burger King, Panera, and Five Below for a carnival/firework display. A bunch of people gathered for it in the connected parking lots. April and I ended up meeting this guy we went to school with and shared a creative writing class with. He went to go get something from his car while we hung out on a blanket, seemingly waiting for the fireworks to start. Everyone else seemed distracted by carnival rides. April and I just happened to look up, and through the fairly cloudy sky, saw this massive spacecraft that was looming closely overhead. We couldn't believe no one else noticed. The next thing I remembered was being in this lobby/room with April and a bunch of other people. We seemed to be on the ship. Aside from April and me, no one else seemed to be aware of what was happening; they were completely obvious. April was a bit worried. Several gray aliens came out and started announcing that they would be controlling the people. They weren't quiet about it, but the other people didn't even seem to hear. I wasn't worried, though, because I knew I was fully protected and that they couldn't touch me. That's the last thing I could remember upon waking up.
It seemed like a lot happened in my dreams from Saturday night/Sunday morning, but recall was a bit fuzzy. At one point I was at a store that seemed similar to the dollar store. I looked at different colored dyes/inks; some of them were like $.33 while others were over a dollar (maybe like $1.67). Corliss, Iris, and April's mom showed up, and Iris wanted some blue plushie that was really soft. There was something about being at school, specifically the high school I think. I somehow didn't have to go to classes,, even though I seemed to be enrolled. My brother, Adam, was apparently skipping classes and not completing assignments. Teachers wanted me to follow him and make sure he went to class. At one point, I saw one of my high school English teachers, Mrs. Adams, in the halls. There might have been something about going to the school library. I ended up seeing my 5th grade teacher at the school; she seemed to work there now. There was something about markers and coloring. My 5th grade teacher asked me and a small group of older students what we've been up to. One girl said something about swimming and going to the movies weekly with her team, inviting me to join them. Someone asked my 5th grade teacher how long she had been teaching, and I exclaimed that she had been my 5th grade teacher. That sparked her memory, and she remarked, "Oh, yeah, you were in the class with Mackenzie." Pretty sure more happened, but that's all I remembered upon waking.
The boys and I had fun this week; we shared funny stories and discussed anime and games. They loved sharing funny memes and coming up with theories about games, shows, and movies. We watched more of Amphibia, and I shared my thoughts/suspicions about the king of Newtopia. He seemed too nice, like it was all a front and a means to an end. When we got to the episode where the king went into some secret basement/dungeon area and started talking to what seems to be some evil creature about getting their revenge, the boys remarked, "Okay, you were right."
Tsuki was a nut this week, but that was to be expected. The goofy kitty followed me around everywhere, trying to latch onto me when I would leave for babysitting because everyone else went on vacation. She was super confused by it all and didn't want to be alone. We enjoyed chilling with each other, though, and it was nice to have a quiet house. Tsuki played with bags, her snake, bells, her old favorite toy, and pretty much anything she could get her paws on. She even played with the painting hanging in the hall and ended up knocking it off the wall.
Artwork for the week included:
I wrote a new poem, so feel free to read it and share your thoughts! I'm also open to suggestions and recommendations for future writing pieces! I have other works in progress, so stay tuned for more stories!
I've added more art supply articles to Creativity Chronicles! Although, I'm experiencing technical difficulties, so while more have been written, not all are available yet. This week's new supplies include:
I finished Amphibia this week, and the story dived pretty deep, looking into themes of self-acceptance, stepping out of your comfort zone, self-discovery, standing up for your values even when it seems hopeless, being careful for what you wish for because it might not be what you really want, and more. Definitely got super Saiyan/super Sonic vibes when Anne powered up, and when Anne, Sasha, and Marcy worked together, it gave me Powerpuff Girls vibes. The ending was rather bittersweet. It wasn't bad, per se, but it wasn't the ending I was hoping for. It was all about accepting change, though, which seemed rather relevant. Amphibia is a great show--I highly recommend watching it. I started watching Spy x Family, and I love it! I adore the main characters, and the story is really interesting; it's a nice blend of action with personal development. I can't wait to see how the story continues! I heard that season 2 will be coming out in October this year, too, so I'm excited!
Things are constantly changing, and we might want to rebel against it. It might be challenging, but change and flow is the state of the universe. Sometimes it might be a bit scary, but change can be what we need or so much better than anything we ever envisioned. We need to be mindful about intentions and manifestations because what we think we want might not turn out to be what we really desire. Things feel a bit wonky right now, possibly feeling out of control and overwhelming, but it's all growing pains. We're growing into our true, best selves. The process can be uncomfortable and long, but the end result is worthwhile. Be gentle with yourself as we navigate through all of this; we're doing the best we can. There's definitely a learning curve to all of this, and we're discovering and learning as we make our way. Make time for rest, relaxation, and fun. No good will come from pushing yourself too hard and burning yourself out. Yes, it's important to be productive and take action, but it's equally important to be and allow yourself to be receptive to the universal energies. Constant action is just as bad as constant inaction; it's all about balance between the two. Take time to breathe and refocus so that your action is meaningful and effective. Stay blessed with love and light, everyone~
