When i was much younger i had a very intense dream about a very large, very majestic lion. at the time and ever since its always been pretty easy to recall the details. it was just so odd that i never was able to quite make sense out of all the symbolism.
recently, the other day however it hit me like a ton of bricks!!! everything made sense!!! and how could i have received such a message so long ago about where i would be right now; if this wasnt where i was exactly supposed to be and wasnt exactly the right direction i am pointed in???!!! life is so weird,lol....
basically the gist of the dream was a lion appeared to me in the woods of the lil mountain i lived on when younger. he took my friends one by one, they went on different paths to different things...moved away and moved on but i was left sorta wondering what i was supposed to be doing with my life (this is a pretty intense dream for a very young teen to have!) he told me he'd come when the time was right, to not be scared and that when i was ready he would be back for me too. all my life i have known this dream had to be a big part of my path, i just could never figure it all out no matter how i tried.
recently i have become part of a circle who is working with Hecate and Dionysus. When i was younger i was enthralled with greek mythology and greek deity worship etc...but i never knew that the lion was so important to Dionysus, that he was an animal of his. so the other day im just doing some research (WOW... i just clicked back over to youtube to start another song real fast, didnt even honestly look at what i was clicking on... and its Mumford and Sons Little LION Man,lol....) anywho, doing research and come across the information regarding Dionysus and lions and BOOM! ton of flippin bricks
i could see him so clearly again, standing in the filtered light of the trees, giant in size, yet peaceful, intense but non threatening. could hear the voice, even tho he never opened his mouth to speak. i could smell the leaves on the ground and the breeze.
and it all, very suddenly and very very beautifully made sense
for the first time in 17 years
i thought id share this, it was pretty insane,lol... but a great reminder of the importance of dreams and their meanings!!!
