Freaky Friday: What Does Dorothy and The Wizard of Oz Have To Do With Finding Your Soulmate?
Freaky Friday: Every Friday a new post dealing with love, relationships, dating...and anything else the human soul may need answered
Have you read or seen Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz? I'm a big fan of the book series and the movie. Not only because my name is Dorothy but because of the story itself and I could always relate to the themes throughout at different points in my life. She is searching for her way home. She's searching for someone to help her, and she picks up friends along the way. They help and support each other during their journey. You see, they all need someone/thing to get where they are going, and each of them is hoping that someone will be able to help them out as well. Do you remember this? Do you remember at the end of the movie, when Glinda the good witch told Dorothy she had the power to return home the whole time?
Why didn't Glinda tell Dorothy right off the bat that the shoes could take her back? Because Dorothy wouldn't have been able to fathom how. She lacked the confidence in her abilities. She needed to make the journey to the Wizard to find herself, to find her strength. She needed to help others along the way and share the journey with them. She needed the trials and tribulations with the Wicked Witch to help her to be more secure in who the person she really is. Dorothy needed to have a her hope restored and then have it taken away again. Only through all of this was she more receptive to accepting she had the strength. She did indeed have the power all along.
So what does Dorothy have to do with finding your soulmate? Her journey is your journey. Only when you go through a hell of a lot, grow as a person, lose and gain, gain and then lose, help others along their journeys, and get lost and find your way again, do you realize you had the power all along. Ultimately, it is not about finding one certain person, or even finding yourself, it's realizing you were your own soulmate this whole time. That those whom you came in contact with, good and bad, were there to help you find your way back to you. Rediscovering yourself, and understanding you had the power the whole time, well that is the best and most rewarding journey of them all. So, take a tip from Dorothy and follow your heart. It may seem like you are going astray. It may seem as though you don't know your way, but follow your heart, be kind and helpful to others, stand in your power and strength. You'll get there. We all do, either in this life or another.
Peace, Love and Hugs
