Dreams of Gratitude

Have you ever read the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic? I hadn’t until today...it’s actually quite beautiful and quite different than the version I learned as a child. I guess it really is all a matter of perception and depends on the person who translates it. Thus we have many, many different interpretations, but it’s interesting never the less. I have copied the text below that I received in the Day 9 Inward, Onward, Upward, Outward email from Stacey Robyn.

I am a Lucid Dreamer, I remember my dreams and am an active participant. I learned this as a self defense mechanism because I have so many bad dreams. I know that spirits can and often do come to me in my dreams, because I often see my family members who have passed. I also believe evil spirits can and do come to me in my dreams, if I don’t protect myself. Years ago before I learned protection techniques, I would be so afraid in my dreams and my only defense was reciting the Lords Prayer, over and over, believing it would protect me from the evil and it always does. I now have a dream catcher above my bed which also works very well. So this is why, the Lord’s Prayer has such special meaning for me.

In one breath, one moment, one choice, one day at a time,
I am a flow-er of Life, dancing with the Divine.
I am Marsha!

~ Lord's prayer in Aramaic
Oh you, breathing life in all, origin of the gleaming sound,
You shine in us and around us,
even the darkness glows when we remember.
Help us to draw a holy breath, in which we feel only you
and your sound ring in us and purify us.
May your counsel rule our lives and make our intentions
clear for the common creation.
May the burning wish of your heart unify heaven
and earth through our harmony.
Grant us daily the bread and insight that we need:
What is necessary for the call of growing life.
Release the cords of the errors that bind us,
as we let go off that which binds us to the faults of others.
Do not let superficial things lead us astray
but instead free us from that which holds us back.
From you come the all-effective will,
the living strength to act, and the song that beautifies
everything and which renews itself form age to age.
True vitality to these testimonies! 
May they be the ground out of which all my actions grow.
Sealed in trust and faith.
~ Amen
