The other side.

"Dreams are today's answers to tomorrow's questions."
-Edgar Cayce

If you're reading this, you most likely know a thing or two about me. If you know a thing or two about me, you know how I have a fascination with the dream world I spend much of my time in. And every once in a while, I find that my little dream world intrudes upon my reality. Lots of people call it
Déjà vu but I see it as something different altogether.

Have you ever had a moment where you're walking around and suddenly it seems as though the world around you has shed a layer... the air seems thicker and you're more aware of everything around you? Everything seems 'normal' but at the same time you know it's anything but. The sun is a little too bright. The clouds too vivid. The ground seems to vibrate beneath your feet, almost imperceptibly, but enough to take notice. This is the other side trying to get your attention...

We all live in this dream land sometimes. It's just that some of us have forgotten how to see it. We wake up and have our coffee, go to work and pay no mind to the memories we made on the other side while our bodies slept.

What if more of us spent more time paying attention to our dreams? I go to sleep telling myself to remember what I see... to remember what I felt and who I met and where I went. When I wake up, I spend an extra few minutes laying there in that space between places where I can slowly return to earth and bid the other side farewell until my next trip. My travels inspire me. I believe everyone's creative side is rooted there... it's where your third-eye opens wide to take in the things we can't see here.

Open your eye and go on your own journey and take note of what your journey brings.

All aboard.
