Blue Hummingbird Dream – Trust, Or Question?
Have you ever questioned your own sense of trust, or the trust you hold for others? Earlier today I reflected on parts of my own world, and without judgment I quietly looked back on my own relationships and trust. I think it is good to question yourself, in an act of turning inward in a loving way. Isn’t a question the pathway to answers?
“I am here for you”
There is a statement, “I am here for you”. Could, or should, that statement automatically be met with trust? There is no generic, out the the box answer. That said, trust and the questions that arise can open the door to a much deeper level of who you are, as a soul, and how we gift one another through love and experience.
Susanne shares her hummingbird dream
I had a dream of a young blue humming bird fluttering around in my
house. He appeared lost and soon trusted enough to land and rest on my
finger. I took him out side and rather than place him on a branch
where he might be attacked or fall? I set him on a shelf in the shed.
As I walked away he followed. He followed me back into the house and
still fluttered around. When I stuck out my finger he again landed.
Blue – the color of trust
Advertising has gone so far in analyzing words, images, and colors. It is said, if you want to promote trust, use the color blue. Advertising is also used to convince us, truth or not, that something is right, better, and exactly what you need. Does that mean that trust is an illusion? To a degree, yes. In our human relationships trust can switch on and off in a heartbeat. What a Debbie Downer, right?
It’s not all that simple. Trust is not something that can be classified as something so superficial. A child trusts their parent, but a parent can make a mistake, even do something intensionally wrong. The latter of these two choices is something serious that must be addressed outside the context of this posting. But let’s pause for a moment on making mistakes. I’m reminded of a statement I heard a long time ago, “I did the best I could with what I had to work with”. No one should be denied the right to learn and grow. We all can and do make mistakes. We also have the power to forgive and build a relationship that allows each of us to make our choices and give/love/related as freely as we can.
Life is amazing. How many times are you presented with an opportunity to trust and have faith? How many times do you have a chance to learn to stand on your own two feet? In the collection of experiences all of us have some blend of support and self reliance. We also have a chance, time and time again, to revisit and reconcile those times when things didn’t work out in a way that feels good or complete.
Trust on the Soul Level
There is another level of trust that exists on the soul level. What is meant by soul level? How do you know it is on the level of the soul, and not just something a creative mind thought up? On the soul level there is unity and alliance, and a stillness that lets you simply “be”. There is no judgment. What difference does it make if you like chocolate or vanilla, neither is better than the other. Both are an expression, like a song, or a poem. Neither sum up who you are. Choices, or expressions are like the footprints you left on the beach. Do you feel that alliance between your heart and soul that lets you feel good, somehow knowing you are moving in the right direction? You may look back and question your choices, but still feel drawn to move in the same direction.
Trust – on what level?
Susanne’s dream is a wonderful, simple example of reconnecting with your own inner trust. It is also a reflection of being open and receptive to the soul level of support that can exist between you and source, you and your own soul, and even you and the souls of others who walk in this human world.
This posting isn’t about giving you answers, it more about giving you something even more powerful: questions. It’s not an easy 1.2.3 of “I’m here for you”, “okay, thanks” and your life is magically all together forever and ever. Trust is a relationship, living just like you and I. One breath at a time, one step, one moment. Choices, thinking both of yourself and others. Don’t you love it, the power each of us has throughout a lifetime?
One more question comes to mind. In Susanne’s dream, who was trusting who? Who was the one saying, “I am here for you”, opening the door to trust and faith?
Lovely dream Susanne, and what a great story shared on a divine, soul level. Thank you for sharing, and giving permission to share with others.
