May Dreamboard: All Systems Go!


It’s Dreamboard time, and the Flower Moon is sending us its lovely blooming energy. According to Trish Hoskins at Suite 101, now is the time to celebrate bouyant, playful energy and to “meditate on your thankfulness for the feeling of renewal and rejuvination.”

All this month I’ve known that my theme for the May dreamboard would be “All Systems GO!” Which has been encouraging because I’ve had a bad migraines in May and every day has brought me pain. Today the pain finally broke and –you guessed it — I came down with a stomach bug. In Sweden. On vacation.

Have you noticed that this tends to happen with stress of all sorts? For instance, my mother was a teacher and was often sick on the first few days of our holiday breaks.  I think maybe the fight-or-flight rush of adreniline keeps the germs at bay, and once that’s gone — WOMP! — you’re sick.

So with this dreamboard I’m holding on to hope with both hands that the next few weeks will find me healthy and read to MOVE on all the lovely writing and community-building projects The Universe has given me of late.  In spite of the pain this month, I have felt that blooming, joyful energy in great abundance. I am immensely grateful that the work that’s been set in front of me rejuvenates me body and soul.

This dreamboard was made in our hotel room in Stockholm. The Cate drew the rocket ship for me and we stuck them up on the amazing wall paper. I love how it makes me think of the Flower Moon and of my hope for forward motion. Perhaps we should have written: All Systems Grow!

What is the Flower Moon bringing you these days?

I love your dreamboard! All systems go! seems like the perfect theme for May.

And I think you have to be right about adrenalin keeping germs at bay. I always seem to get sick on vacation, too.

May your dreams come true. =)

I get sick when I relax too but I thought it was the other way around… like when your immune system fights back it makes you feel unwell, it raises the temp, makes mucus, etc to kill the germs. When you are stressed out your immune system cannot do its job so the germs are just making themselves at home.
As soon as I realised all that, I started taking A LOT more sick days at work!

Great dreamboard. I will have to put one together and I’m thinking my needs to be continued inspirational growth.

May your dreams come true!
