Sharin Joy's favorite thing in the world was running. She skipped crawling as an infant; went directly from the belly-scoot to the RUN! This made her so tired. When her tiny body decided it had enough of the fast life, it would force the little princess to sleep the slumber of queens.
Before escaping to dreamland, she would request a bedtime story to help her active imagination focus on one plot, one familiar prose. The story she called, "The Lizard of the Fod."
aka: The Wizard of Oz
The girl and her dog traveling beyond dimensions to a world full of hope, friendship, wisdom, and compassion, would fill her mind and heart with wonder. She would fall asleep cuddling with her family members. Then the next day, ask for the same story again, "Lizard of the Fod, pwease?"
This adorable princess is my sister at three years old.
Today, I dissect what Lizard of the Fod means.
Through myth and legend Lizard is associated with the dreams and the power to regenerate that which is lost. Lizards are extremely good at facing fears and moving between realities and “otherworlds”. They have an innate ability to recognize danger and can remove themselves when the situation calls for it, or even leave a piece of themselves behind if necessary! Lizards know how to leave the past in the past. The intuitive characteristics found in the lizard encourages us to awaken our inner perceptions, helping us choose one path over another. Letting go of old ideas, patterns, belief systems, habits, actions or lifestyle decisions can be easier when we embody the lessons of the lizard. Listening to the prompts to go within and examine your present reality and move towards your dreams with confidence in your abilities to handle any threats that may come along.
