BODY-TALK: THE WOMAN DENTIST AND MY FRONT TOOTHby Janice Matturro on 09/21/13
One of the “Nine Powers of Dreaming” is the power of dreams to show us what we need to keep our bodies well.*
I know this power very well.
A dream saved my life when I was in my twenties. You can read the story of how my dream
unfolded and guided me on the road to life in my blog, Sunny-Side Up Eggs, Bacon, and
a Side of Dreams http://www.dreamsonthego.com/Blog.html?entry=my-life-in-dreams.
(You may have to scroll down a bit to find the posting because it is the very first posting to my blog.)
Last night, I dreamed of being in the dentist’s office – not one of my favorite places to be. I was sitting in the dentist’s chair, and a woman dentist was working, diligently, on my front tooth. I thought to myself, “I have never been to a woman dentist before.”
The dentist placed the left side of her face onto the right side of my face to get a closer look into the back of my tooth. I am impressed with her dental skills as it seems to me she has a unique ability to see beyond the surface of my tooth without having to x-ray it.
After the dentist had completed her work, she turned to me and pointed to one of my two front teeth. “If I were to choose what part of my body to begin taking care of, I would begin right here at this front tooth.”
This morning, I awakened with a sense of gratitude because it occurred to me that my dream dentist had given me a "heads up," even perhaps a temporary fix, buying me enough time to make an appointment with my dentist before an issue, requiring extensive dental work, manifests within my tooth.
Active Dreamers know the importance of taking action on body-talk dreams. The first thing Monday morning, I am going to make an appointment with my dentist to check out my front tooth – even though the dentist’s office is the last place I would choose to spend my time.
