A long time ago, back in 2011, I had a dream about doors. In this dream I walked up to a door and I opened it. I came upon a long hallway filled with many other doors. Each door was different.
One door was see thru
One door had an easy handle on it
One door had a lock on it
One door was a french door and had two doors that opened inward
One door had a thousand locks on it of varying types and sizes and colors
Each door was different…
There was door after door.
As I walked down the hallways, I would try to open some of the doors.
Some doors wold open easy and I would find myself down ANOTHER hallway with MORE doors or MANY different handles, locks, colors etc.
A few nights later, I would have the dream again and so on.
One night, I woke up and sketched all these doors.
Later, in a metaphysical course at the School of Metaphysics in Des Moines, Iowa I was with someone who was taking a dream interpretation course. I asked the leader about this dream.
They said this is my life, my opportunities, my challenges, my world. the World of Trisha Trixie and it was showing me how life is filled with many doors. Some others open for you and let you in. Some you have to knock on and allow others to open. Some you have to have the key. Some you have to go through a few doors before you get to where you are going. Some have windows so you can see whats inside before you open and some you just have to take a chance and see what is on the other side…and so on and so forth… the explanations went on.
Fast forward until now…
I have been reading books on mindfulness, peace, inner peace, being at one, being present, being in the here and now….
As I was reading Thich Nhat Hanh this morning, it hit me…it was like a flashback to a dream…
I have been mostly at peace for some time now since 2011. Many things have happened for me and my world has changed, it has opened up, it has become different and new and fabulous in so many ways…and now I know why…
I had an epiphany…
Those doors, those doors that I dreamt about so long ago, those doors are the doors of life…
Doors of happiness
Doors of fulfillment
Doors of contentment
Doors of success
Doors of Friendship
Doors of change
Doors of elation
Doors of opportunity….
and I have gone through them to the other side…
Well, I am not quite FULLY there, however, I realized this morning that I have opened MANY of those doors. I found the key to some of them, like in a video game, while walking along, BUMP I walked over something and a bubble popped over my head and stated clearly what it was “You have found the Key!” Which then I tried that key and other key in every door I could until a door opened. I did this over and over until other doors opened…
My key ring is full of random keys that have oepned many doors. I have been carrying them around with me, thinking I might need them again…what if I get locked out…what if I need to help someone else get thru?
Today, however, I dropped those keys so I could pick up something else. (you know in video game you can only hold so many things. Sometimes you have to drop one to get something better)
Today, I picked up the ONE KEY I need for them all. I do need to hold to it tightly, so I am making a metaphorical lanyard and hanging this key around my neck. The lanyard is simple, nothing fancy. It doesn’t need to be. Because THE KEY is the most beautiful thing in the world. I know it will always be that way. I just need to see it for what it is and I will see it as beautiful, wonderful, magical, because it is.
It is the
The Key of Inner Peace
Nothing else matters when you have Inner Peace.
Lady at the store cuts you off and gets in front of you? No biggie, I have Inner peace. Maybe she was more in a hurry than I was.
Somebody steals from you? My motto always has been and still is, the fat that when others steal from me, I know they will get their kharama AND I feel like they must have needed it more than me. I thank God for helping me get rid of that item so it could open the way for something better.
I am no expert on all of this, of course.
It is a recent revelation.
Perhaps five years from now, who knows where my enlightenment might be.
I can say however, that for my dream of doors, a realization swept over me, like a cool breeze on a hot day, that the answer to that dream is the key of inner peace.
I have felt such contentment lately, such bliss, such elation, such happiness….
Where did that come from?
The fact that I have now learned to let go and let god.
Turn the page, as my mother says.
Go wash your hands and visualize your problems, worries, issues etc down the drain and come out clean, refreshed and happy. this is a visualization I do often and have since i was 16 years old.
Today is a new day. Each moment is new and fresh. Each lesson is there for a reason and above all
All you can do is take it in stride and be in the moment…
Every Moment…Be Present
Whether it is good or bad that is happening to you, be present, take it in and breathe and move on…
Each day we are given choices. choices to allow things, people, places, etc to affect us in a variety of ways. WE can allow ourselves to be angry, happy, sad, and so on. The choice is up to us.
We are a result of the choices we have and will make.
Choose Wisely…and remember my motto…
WHEN GIVEN THE OPTION OF BEING FABULOUS, WHY WOULD YOU CHOOSE ANYTHING ELSE?
