1-20-14 - I was feeling completely out of place, unwanted, and uneeeded on any level, and my needlework projects are missing and I had nothing to do but feel sorry for myself, so I decided to meditate and then dream, which is what I did.

DREAM -  I was sitting in my house, feeling sorry for myself, when a big rabbit came along with his hind right leg cut off, and he was running for his life leaving a bloody leg print on the floor as he ran, and then a headless chicken came into the house, carrying a flyswatter and started hitting me on the head with it.  I had to swat it away from me because he couldn't see where he was going.

I then went outside, and a woman, her daughter, and a dachshund dog came through the neighborhood, demonstrating some kind of automatic car that ran on a red triangle machine that sat in the passenger seat, while she sat in  the driver's seat to give directions of just where she wanted to go to the machine.

The machine itself was a red triangle, about 6 inches high and about 2 inches wide and it just sat loosely on the seat and remotely drove the car.

When the woman saw me, she stopped the car and got out and I told her, I had always wanted to see a car like hers, and she said she would demonstrate it for me.

She told me she drove it around neighborhoods because her little girl had a bad heart and she needed work done on her heart and the dachshund dog was part of the treatment.

In return I told her the story of the rabbit with one foot cut off and the headless chicken with the fly swatter and made them both laugh at my story, because they didn't believe it really happened.

I told her that I could heal the little girl's heart and put my hand on the litte girls chest to give her a Reiki Treament.  The doctor then showed up, wearing a white lab coat and he said he would demonstrate the treatment for me.

So, the doctor opened up a flap on the dogs side and showed me a chamber in which the dog had some kind of substance like sticky sugary carmel in a pouch, and from there a tube went into the little girl so the girl would get the sugar from the dog and make her heart beat normally, while she hugged the dog. 

He said that the little girl had to have the treatment for two months to heal her heart.

The Mom said she needed help because she had to drive the car around neighborhoods, looking for help for her and the little girl.

I volunteered immediately to help the little girl with her treatment.

So we all got into this special car and I got in the back seat and held the little girl and the dachshund dog in my arms to keep them huddled together and I gave them Reiki as well while the Mom drove around driving her remote controlled car.

I started to wake up and realized I was holding the little girl between my arms that were folded around myself as well, healing my own heart that had felt broken earlier. 

I heard a bell ring, and told spirit I was ready for a message, and none seemed forthcoming, so I said I was going to hang up then, and woke up fully from my dream, realizing that not only was helping the little girl in the dream, I was helping heal my own heart with how I was holding myself under the blanket that was keeping me warm and cozy while I was sleeping.

The Heart Speaks: A Cardiologist Reveals the Secret Language of Healing 

From Publishers Weekly

A lyrical writer as well as a cardiologist, the author, founder and medical director of the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine, describes how she learned that beyond the power of our most sophisticated medical equipment is a physician's humanity—"the listening ear, the healing touch, the devices of healers throughout time." Guarneri became highly accomplished at angioplasty and stent procedures, but came to realize that those she treated could also be helped by proper nutrition and stress reduction techniques such as yoga and visualization. She became committed to practices such as those of Dean Ornish, with whom she has worked, to reverse coronary disease with diet, exercise, meditation and support groups. Guarneri studied the link between depression and heart disease, and opened her mind to the validity of other alternative treatments, including energy healing, visualization before and after surgery, and spiritual practices. What is particularly attractive about this chronicle is the author's graceful integration of her own story—the destructive effect on her of stress and overwork—into those of her patients. Guarneri deplores the financial constraints that prevent doctors from spending time with patients and that many physicians have developed "a mechanic's mentality," focused on fixing rather than getting to know their patients.
