The miracle of amnesia

I’ve had some interesting dreams lately – well, this is not news.  My dreams tend to be Technicolor sagas that feature many characters and multiple story lines at any given time.  Perhaps that’s what makes these recent dreams so remarkable – they’ve centered on a single person and small moments.

To be specific – I’ve started dreaming about a person. I don’t know who he is and I can’t remember what he looks like, but in my dream I know that he is my soul mate.

** Let me interrupt myself here for a moment. This blog is really not about my love life. Which might be kind of hard to tell recently, as it creeps into my posts more and more often. This blog is about the miracles in my life, and what’s been going on in my head lately has a lot to do with love and relationships. Which means that what gets written about here has a lot to do with love and relationships. Clear as mud?  Good, let’s move on… **

This man has now shown up in three dreams…three really, really good dreams (get your mind out of the gutter, I don’t mean it that way!)

In the dream the other night, he and I were blissfully in love and planning to buy a house together.  The only weird thing about it was that in my dream I had amnesia – the soap opera kind of amnesia where you wake up one day with no memory whatsoever of your prior life.  This man had been in my life before the amnesia, but then I woke up and didn’t remember him…and then I fell in love with him anew after the amnesia.  I was blissfully in love with this man who was completely brand new and shiny to me because I was just relearning him.

For the first day after the dream I was kind of disturbed by it – what the heck did it mean that I had amnesia?  But now I’ve hit upon something that makes me so excited I want to jump up and down!

Let’s suppose that my soul mate is out there waiting for me. And let’s further suppose that our souls have known and loved each other for a very, very long time. We are the true embodiment of love that meets many times over many lifetimes.

In this scenario, before we were born into this lifetime, we made an agreement to find each other yet again. But when we were born into these human bodies, we forgot. Our souls didn’t forget, but our human minds and bodies were too busy figuring out how to walk, talk, and sing karaoke. We go blindly through this life with an inkling that perhaps someone is out there, but having forgotten the plan. We have contracted amnesia simply through the process of being born and growing up.

Which means that when we do meet in this life, we will have a deep history and background and we’ll also be learning each other again for the first time.  And THAT is what fills me with joy and excitement!!  How wonderful to have the opportunity to meet this soul partner, this person who was made for me, whose soul I have known and loved, and to see them again through brand new eyes.

You know when you do something super-exciting for the first time and you love it so much that you think, “It will never be that much fun again because it will never be the first time again”?  Well here’s an exception – when that love shows up, I get to fall in love and discover that soul all over again for the first time.  It gives me goosebumps just thinking about it!!!

So here’s to more great dreams.

And also to living out the wisdom of Dr. Seuss: ““You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”

    Hi Rose,
    Thanks for sharing your experience. I think perhaps we’re not meant to remember the details, but instead take the feelings of the dream and hold that in faith of what is to come.
    I’m sending up a prayer for you and your soul mate to find each other.
    With a hug,
