I had the most wonderful experience last night and thought I would share it with all of you. Feel free to post your own experiences :)
Like most nights my insomnia was keeping me up. I decided to meditate on my life since I could not rest. No matter how many times I looked at it all I could not see what it was that is causing my many issues with trusting others and my mood swings. After about 45 minutes I was ready to give up and do something else. All of a sudden a beautiful white leopard walked up and sat beside me. My life swirled around me like a living movie. I was able to watch everything clearly. A voice spoke in my head as I saw this and told me not to be afraid. It told me that none of this could harm me anymore and that I need to see things from an outside perspective. She told me I have never truly been living my life. I have been stuck in a form of stasis due to past trauma. It caused me to lock myself up and only react when things became uncomfortable or upsetting.
She told me she has always been with me and I know that to be true. At the end of my meditation I felt such peace that I was able to sleep without medication or nightmares for the first time in over 20 years. I know I will learn more from my guide and that the spirit I feared that was with me all along was nothing to be afraid of :)
