Dear Ones,

On the astral plane, and also in a news article quite some years ago, I heard about a father who ‘acted out’ the metaphor ‘put him on the hot seat’ by placing his toddler son in a sitting position on a hot stove burner.

I take this to be additional support for my theory that the language of the subconscious mind is one of metaphor and image words, which have the danger of being ‘acted out’ in the physical realm when people are in the grips of emotions such as great anger or great fear or great grief … emotions so great that the conscious mind cannot maintain control of one’s actions.

In love, light and joy,
