Here Lizard, Lizard, Lizard

There was a passel of lizards in my dream last night ~ clearly they were trying to deliver a message. I looked up their animal totem meaning to give me insight and here is what I found.

  • Lizard totem tells me to listen to my own intuition above anyone else's.
  • It can show me how to break from the past by letting go of old ideas or negative behaviors which endanger my growth.
  • Lizards are experts a subtle perception.
  • Lizards reveal hidden messages through the dream state.
  • They prompt the energy of change.

Ufff ~ what an intense message ~ looks like I need to start writing down my dreams no matter how bizarre they might be! Also, interesting that a lizard can lose it's tail and grow another one in it's place ~ hopefully I won't grow a brain tail again. Speaking of sleep and dreaming I am finally beginning to dream again and it's getting a wee bit easier to fall asleep. I think I just need to be patient with the whole healing process. I wonder how long it's going to take before my brain has found a happy medium.

Your dreams are always jam packed...listen to them.

Amazingly enough, your unconscious mind seems to be telling you all about the "lizard brain". The human brain is really made up of three parts that evolved over time. The most basic brain is referred to as the "lizard brain" because it also exists in reptiles. (I'm probably explaining this very badly here in the wee hours of the morning).

The lizard brain is basically a bump at the base of the skull, at the top of the spinal column - sound familiar? Well, the decompression opened up some area for your lizard brain to breathe a little. This part of your brain is concerned only with involuntary actions (breathing, sleeping, ...) and survival. When it encounters something new, it wants to know if it should eat it, mate with it, run away, or attack it.

The brain is a fascinating organ, and it was definitely trying to tell you something ... "thank you", perhaps?
