I seem to remember my dreams much more frequently and my dreams are strangely vivid, lately. I would not say I am having nightmares, but sometimes I wake up a bit scared. That is when I dreamed about little snakes which I saw. Or little bears, three of them, all three of a different color.
I dreamed I had wings, like an angel.
I dreamed about someone from my past (an ex lover, of course. Our relationship ended because we argued way too much. And because of that, we could not stay friends). I sometimes dream about him (although I have not seen him in years), and in my dreams I am always angry or sad. But last night, things were different. I opened a door and wanted to walk through it, when I turned around and saw him, entering through another door. We both were surprised to see each other. I approached him and very shyly, I hugged him. It felt uneasy, but nice. We both giggled a bit. Then we walked our separate ways.
I felt like I wanted to talk to my teacher about these dreams. But during practice, she was busy helping me and the other students with our practices, there was no time for talking. In the hall way I met an other student, whom I had talked to before.
'How is your practice going?' she asked.
'Okay,' I answered. 'I visited the Yoga Festival in Terschelling last weekend,' I told her. 'It almost drove me crazy. Everything and everyone was so spiritual. I was afraid that this life style is too much, that if I continue to do this, I won't be able to recognize my parents in a few months, or that I cannot work at the office anymore.'
She listened and nodded and I saw her thinking.
She answered: 'Just do this. Just practice Ashtanga. When I first started practicing yoga, I did everything. I took every class I could. But you know, everybody is trying to sell their classes and their form of yoga. This is the real thing. Stick to Ashtanga. It has everything you need.'
