So I had a “gambling dream” last night. I wanted to buy these coins bc I thought they were beautiful (my dad was a coin collector and we shared a love of that hobby). I soon realized that they were “casino coins” and could only be used in casinos. At first, it was a dilemma, but quite soon I realized if it meant being in a casino, I didn’t want them, and spent the rest of the dream trying to figure out how to give them back or flat out get rid of them.
Every night before I go to sleep, I say out loud to no one (if you don’t count 🐶) “I am a gambling addict. I can never gamble again—ever!” And then I pray (for lack of a better word) that I will come to fully embrace what those words entail—and not feel, as I do, some vague resistance to them. Given my dream, and the prevailing feeling of not wanting to be anywhere near a casino, I think, maybe (?), the mantra effect can work on some unconscious level?
Anyway, just a thought (pun intended) stay strong my brothers and sisters!!
