M is for Monk, Mudra Meaning & Dream Medicine (CV)

I needed a quick healing so I asked my dreams for help!

I dreamed I saw a female monk in saffron robes.

She acknowledged me with the hand position known as “anjali mudra

I drew this picture “M is for Monk and Mudra”– with my left hand (I’m right handed) – to take in the dream’s message.

In my dream journal I made a left-handed drawing of my dream image.

I’m a writer, not an artist, but I find that the effort and practice of drawing a dream symbol – using my non-dominant hand to access the more creative, less judgmental part of my mind – helps me to absorb its meaning on another level. It also gives me a more intimate feeling for the dream … in this case for the female monk.

As a result I felt a deeper connection with this holy woman, and her message. I felt her quiet, inward spiritual devotion, and her outer generosity in connecting with me and thereby helping me connect with my divine self and my potential to heal myself.

As it turns out, M is for medicine, too … as the dream worked better than any pills or prescription I might have taken!

  1. You are an artist, your left handed drawing is expressive and serene:)
    I like how you found meaning in your dreams, and this week it was a mug that spoke to me:)) We’re definitely sisters ♡

  2. What a wonderful path to healing!

  3. ha! interesting take. i might give that a try, drawing with my non-dominant hand. it feels tempting. amazing how you can reach better for your dream, when turning to the left part of the brains, by getting around dominance.
    will have to Mull, now… will need a Mug. ;)))
    and a few pencils, ‘course.

  4. Magic M, full of poetry and questions. To Meditate 🙂
