Just look for somewhere soft to land
In doing a goddess reading for myself, in which I take my goddess cards and pick one or two and those are supposed to be the themes for my day, I had 2 messages: 1) stop worrying, everything is fine and 2) your chosen path is the right one for you. Nice comforting messages, I must say. Soooo.... I picked these cards before going to bed, and the illustration of the goddess Aine shows a woman with wings, like a fairy. She is flying or at least the sky is behind her in the illustration. Therefore, I went to sleep and dreamed about flying, or rather leaping over a cliff.
Luckily I wasn't alone. I was with some guy who was some type of guide, and for illustrative purposes let's call him Hot Mike.
In the dream, I was nervous about running up to the cliff and jumping, but Hot Mike assured me that everything was fine and that it was a perfectly acceptable thing to do. He grabbed my hand and we started running. The only thing I remember him saying in particular was as we jumped, when he said, "You'll be fine- just look for somewhere soft to land!" and I knew at that point that all would be well.
The action of jumping off the cliff did jar me awake, but I had enough wherewithal to go back to the dream and picture what the soft place to land would look like. It was a patch of green earth, free of snarly tree branches or anything like that.
It is a concrete goal (pardon the pun) to land somewhere soft. I took the leap away from the security of full-time employment in a place that dragged my energy down, and now I'm running with Hot Mike toward a cliff and jumping off, looking for somewhere soft to land. It is kind of cool.
The sensation in the air was odd, after we'd jumped. I felt light and didn't fall very fast. It was like when you are parachuting to the ground, and you can control where you land. It was odd enough to jar me out of the dream for a second, but not enough to cause panic.
