A Network About Hauntings, Psychics, Alians, All Things Paranormal
First I'll begin by saying that the Medicine of the totem 'Lizard' is 'Dreamtime.' And with that in mind I will start my story. I have a set of animal totem pendants, and sometimes I just feel that i need to wear a certain one. I woke yesterday morning, and while dressing, and preparing for my day, I thought of the pendants. I went to my jewelry box, and picked up a few, 'put them back,' then picked up the Lizard, and placed around my neck for the day.
Before bedtime, I was in the main room of the house, and on the outside of the window was a Lizard. He comes there from time to time to get the moths that fly to the light. He is huge . I sit in awe watching him with the moon in the background so amazingly beautiful. Then I went to bed.
Before waking I had this dream. I was in a circle of people all holding hands, and holding them up to the sky, I was in the midst of the circle but not holding hands yet. A man, said to me, "come on and don't be afraid." "You know you are a soldier." So, I took the hands of the persons to my right and left, and held mine up in the air towards the sky as well. The man that had spoken to me, started to talk about the earth, and what a blessings it is, what must be done to protect, and restore her, and all which dwell on her, people, plants, animal, the water, everything. Then we all knelt down and felt the vibration of Mother Earth, I myself kissed the ground. Then we all stood.
My dream went from that to me driving a car, 'my favorite antique car, a convertable mustang.'But in the color of red, which I never had one in that color , but blue. As I was driving, by myself on a beautiful road... no other traffic, I looked up, and on a power line directly above me were two pigeons with their necks touching Not doves or love birds as one would expect to see in that position. I woke at that moment.
In my window seal, I have many replicas of totems. And on my window screen 'which is inside not outside,' I have some attached that appear to be crawling down the window, Snake, Spider, and Lizard. All very life like. Immediately upon waking I look to the left of my bed, and there is the Lizard on the night stand. It had fallen off of the window during the night. These events are not coincidental. All totems, come to us for a reason, when we need them. Their unique Medicine, is a gift being offered to us.
It's up to us to take the messages, and use them. Thank you for reading my little story. I thank the Great Spirit, and Lizard for my dreams, and for their presence in my life today, as I needed them to be.
Lizard… will you dream with me?
Travel across the stars?
Beyond the place of time and space,
There live visions from afar.
Lizard sat lolling in the shadow of a big rock, shading himself from the desert sun. Snake crawled by, looking for some shadow to coil up in and rest. Snake watched Lizard for awhile as Lizard’s eyeballs went side
to side behind his enormous closed lids. Snake hissed to get Lizard’s
attention. Slowly Lizard’s dreaming eyes opened and he saw snake.
“Snake! You scared me! What do you want?” Lizard cried.
Snake spit his answer from his forked tongue. “Lizard, you are always getting the best shadow spots in the heat of the day. This is the only big rock for miles. Why don’t you share your shade with me?”
Lizard thought for a moment, then agreed. “Snake, you can share my shade spot, but you have to go to the other side of the rock and you must promise not to interrupt me.”
Snake was getting annoyed. He hissed, “How could I bother you Lizard? All you are doing is sleeping.”
Lizard smiled knowingly. “Oh Snake, you are such a silly serpent. I’m not sleeping. I’m dreaming.”
Snake wanted to know what the difference was, so Lizard explained. “Dreaming is going into the future, Snake. I go to where future lives. You see, that is why I know you won’t eat me today. I dreamed you and I
know you’re full of mouse.”
Snake was taken aback. “Why Lizard, you’re exactly right. I wondered why you said you should share your rock.”
Lizard laughed to himself. “Snake,” he said, “you are looking for shade and I am looking for shadow. Shadow is where the dreams live.”
Lizard medicine is the shadow side of reality where your dreams are reviewed before you decide to manifest them physically. Lizard could have created geting eaten by Snake if he had so desired.
Lizard is the medicine of dreamers. Whether dreamers smoke you or dream you, dreamers can always help you see the shadow. This shadow can be your fears, your hopes, or the very thing you are resisting, but it
is always following you around like an obedient dog.
If Lizard dreamed appears to you or draws your attention, it may be time to look and see what is following along behind you. Is it your fears, your future trying to catch up to you, or is it the part of you that wants to
ignore your weaknesses and humanness?
Lizard may be telling you to pay attention to your dreams and their symbols. Make a dream log and record all that you remember. Be sure to pay attention to each individual symbol or recurring pattern. If you do
not remember your dreams, you could try setting a music alarm for 2 a.m.
or 3 a.m. Or you could try drinking a lot of water before bedtime and
allow your bladder to wake you up. Dreams are very important. Pay
attention to them.
