Last night I dreamed that there were hundreds of ants crawling everywhere in the house where I lived. Others also lived there, both men and women. In fact, it wasn’t my home in which I reside in waking life. It was unrecognizable. But the ants were relentless, and I went right into fear.
How was I supposed to get rid of all of them? I felt overwhelmed.
But then a woman in the house began clearing them out. She did it so quickly it seemed unreal. But within moments they were all gone, even the ones on me and the clothes I was wearing.
At first I didn’t trust that she got rid of them all, and I asked her if they were all gone. As I asked, I saw that she had indeed cleaned them up. She said she got rid of their food source.
How about that! Got rid of their food source….stop feeding them, and they disappear pretty quickly. Amazing.
So it wasn’t too difficult to figure out the dream’s meaning for me. Well, actually for all of us….our fears can feel overwhelming. There are hundreds, thousands even of concerns that reside just below the surface. They live there, but are not necessarily activated unless we begin to feed them. And it doesn’t take a lot of food, does it? It can be a couple of crumbs on the kitchen counter, or a drop of orange juice.
It sometimes takes just a little bit of doubt or concern. That’s all it takes for an entire army of them to appear and pretty quickly.
And just like the ants, those worries and fears are relentless. Even though, like the ants, they are tiny creatures that really can’t kill us, they can sure make our lives miserable.
Another significant point in the dream was…another woman did all the cleaning up for me, or for all of us in the house. Our soul can take care of the clearing and cleaning of all our fears and concerns. And easily and quickly. But our job as the human is as best as we can, be aware that the fears are not who we are, but are attracted to anything that can feed them.
And as we pay less and less attention to them, respond less and less to them, whether they concern our health, finances, or relationships, they end up starving or just moving on.
