    Default Re: Any Weird Dreams?

    I came to the thread today because I had a really awesome dream experience earlier this morning.

    I had a powerful dream - really good feeling of where I was, colour, people, info etc. It was like a market or something similar, but perhaps further into the future or a different place? Some of the things I saw were too much to be able to describe or even properly recall. There was a large display/monitor (20 metres high) and it showed info along with some type of air-foil type kites. (Yeah, too much to put into words.) What I did recognize was the fruit - raspberries, blue blueberries, etc. There was a lot (picked and boxed ). I walked through to another area where some people were playing soccer. (I am Canadian, so yeah, soccer. ) Anyway, I have played soccer most of my life but my body is too old and worn to be able to play anymore, so playing in the dream state is something I really cherish. I joined their game. I think they were South Americans and they were using the small ball - futsal. My kids came into my bedroom and woke me up. I was bummed out because I was enjoying my dream. After a couple minutes my kids left the room. I laid back down and luckily I was able to get back to the dream! It was weird because I have awoken from a dream before and quickly returned to sleep and continued dreaming, but I have not ever experienced getting back after being 'so' awake. When I returned to the dream, it seemed like the same market area, but not as elaborately decorated. I spoke to a person there and told them that I was just here a few minutes ago. I was kind of freaked out and wanted to share my story - the person I was talking to was busy and asked me "is this a long story?" really caught me off guard. I wrapped up that conversation and walked over to where the people were playing soccer and joined back into the game.

    Having this experience has really energized me. I am hoping that I can go into a dream and play soccer every night now of course, but I don't expect to. LOL!

    Lately, I have been telling myself that I need to 'rebuild' or 'restart' my life. I feel I have a lot of years left to live of course, but my body is giving me a lot of problems. Perhaps being determined in my mind to push past the problems that my body is giving me has somehow helped to ...I don't know. Things have been weird lately and I have had a lot of weird in my life, so I never know what to expect. And I don't rule anything out. I guess I will find out if it is really anything significant.

    Since reading many posts in this thread being about dreaming of water, I thought it might be worth adding that my dream last night included me being on a ship (ocean type, not space ship).

    I was in some type of uniform in order to blend in I guess. (I felt like I was trespassing) My uniform allowed me access to all a parts of the ship, as there was locked gates that i was able to open to gain access to places. The other ship staff always looked at me with slight recognition and I recall them looking at my uniform first then at my face. Felt like i had a high rank as they seemed to stand up a bit more and stop their conversation as I entered their area. But nothing extreme like it was NAVY and I was an admiral for example.

    Overall the ship felt positive and there were many people NOT in uniform that seemed to be comfortable and enjoying themselves. Not partying, but exercising, eating, general socializing.

    When I went outside so that I could see the water, the water was not calm, but rather rough. (but not stormy) Once I saw the state of the water, I woke up.

    *sigh* no dreams of soccer unfortunately. Lol

    What I see from your dream, of what you remember and list out anyway is this.

    The 'movie screen' as well as 'kites' are related in that one, the screen is a viewing of goals and aspirations that you have but have distanced yourself from. The kites represent those things, lofty aspirations and desires. To see a drive in movie screen for example is most often seeing or viewing of one's life. Blank would be something else but colors also mean things in dream. as well as fruits. Blueberries are most always associated with youth and the desire to 'recapture' some of that energy, that stamina, and for that matter soccer too is a recapture of that ability, that youth and agility.

    The things are representing aspects of you. Again the ready to sell fruit, packed up well, and the market are both similar to each other for meaning in dream and that would be desire for some physical or emotional need you are currently having. Empty market, not much in the way of prospect or option, full stocked meaning you have options.

    It almost seems to represent the desire to be youthful again to present these valued assets and ideas you have but you feel some are not willing to listen to your story or value what you have/had to offer? Maybe due to your age and somewhere inside you feel if you were younger you'd be taken more seriously and people would see what you bring to the table. However the way you bounce right back into the 'game' so to speak indicates you've rolled off water like this in the way of rejection all your life but for whatever reasons this one stuck with you long enough to make you digest it in a more profound way. This dream. I'm not suggesting I am on to anything or read this accurately but the symbols are there lets just say that. I hope this helps.

    Very interesting Ratszinger - do you think that the dream is just a product of my experiences and feelings or is it specifically provided for us? I suppose if this was a source that we could learn to tap into anytime we liked, it could be very valuable. Dreams certainly have the power to affect us through our day as sometimes the feelings we captured during the dreams stays with us (be they positive or negative at times).

    Your thoughts?

    I believe that dreams play a fundamental role in helping us digest the experiences and happenings of each day in a non linear way. I believe that Ernest Hartmann was on to something in his belief that sleep has a restorative function. He believes that sleep and dream consolidates disruptive, stressful events of the day into a person's normal emotional and learning systems. Interestingly, most people do require more deep sleep, and dream sleep after a stressful experience.

    Also, Carl Jung's collective unconscious theories and belief that sleep and dream provides a more appropriate context for non linear synthesis of conscious & unconscious desires and happenings of our day as we experience life. The Chinese are on to something in their belief that sleep has a restorative function also, and that dreams are extensions of reality.

    They believe that the soul is involved in dreams and that it can and does wander from the body while the person is sleeping but the Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep seem to speak loudly that they believe all of this conscious and unconscious are not just dream but different layers of awareness. Hence, to this day a sleeper is not hastily aroused in China since they are actually aware, but in another experience so to speak so to prevent disruptions like your children did to your dream they would likely advise their children not to do so any longer and to learn not to make a habit of waking someone when sleeping.

    Psychologists regard dreams of patients as clues to the malfunctionings of their personalities, but to me this is interesting because even in this application dreams and other nocturnal experiences are not regarded as real in any sense at all by specialists but in Asian medicine they consider it another version of reality just as real and just as important as this. .

    Thanks Ratszinger - I am totally supportive of the Chinese's views as you have noted above. Truthfully, I have had a dream that was a personal future event. What helped it to stand out was that although the events in the dream were just normal everyday 'life' events, I awoke from the dream with strong feelings like you have from a strong nightmare - heavy breathing, sweating, heart beating like crazy, etc. In retrospect, I believe that without those sensations, I would have forgotten about the dream and not recalled it as a dream when that event occurred in my life approximately (8 months?) later. As I have mentioned this in other posts on the forum, it obviously has made a huge impact on my life (well, that and a few other things). Well, easy to believe that without those events I might not have ever come to this forum, thus I would not be here sharing my experiences with everyone. (The stone into the pond causing a ripple effect.)

    I honestly go to bed almost every night hoping to have an eventful night of dreams because I have enjoyed them so much. As you have shown by reviewing my dream, we can learn so much from them, but at the same time I am very intrigued by wondering where they truly come from. Of course some are a reflection of our daily events and our subconscious, but what other sources are there? I suppose it depends on your belief system. I certainly hope that at some point in our journey we will get the answers.

    The energies lately have been deceptive, self serving and just plain muddled; specifically regarding the way people I thought I knew have been behaving. Just deceptive and dark.

    With that said, I had a very strange, dark dream last night.

    I was in a house and it was dark outside. I got the sense and heard animals going crazy outside. They were very upset. I knew there was something evil going on outside, but I had to wait till it got light to see what was happening.

    It got light and the animals were quiet. Now, this is disturbing, but it was my dream. Upon looking out, various animal types such as squirrels, dogs, rabbits, etc. were gathered in a circle around what I only saw as a rather large human hanging. I only saw the legs and the feet, which were enormous and encased in some military style boots. My vision would not let me see above the knees of this person. I do know he (and it was a he) was very tall.

    All was silent. I was not scared, but I understood that something or someone quite evil had died.

    I had a dream about me visiting a school that had doors open for people interested. It was related to Natural Sciences. I decided to pray on it and Holy Spirit confirmed I was going. Saturday 10th! University in Amsterdam: Liberal Arts and Natural Sciences. Holy Spirit indicated that I would find out why once there. I'm really curious about it.

    Kinda funny dream last night, and this is what happens when you post on here before going to bed!

    I dreamed you folks were at my house, in my front lawn, having some kind of a meeting. Not any of you in particular, I just understood it was Avalon forum members. There were maybe 30 people there, some sitting on the ground, some in lawn chairs. There was a sort of a raffle going on, whoever's name got drawn was going to visit the International Space Station. At the beginning of the dream I was extremely anxious, I thought I was going. Like I had to. I had severe anxiety over this. I remember trying to make the best of it in my mind but I really was uncomfortable over the whole thing. This is odd in retrospect cause I'd go in a heartbeat in real life.

    During the dream several peoples names were drawn, and every time a name was drawn everyone would cheer as if they're happy for them. I don't remember the dream clearly but I think one of the names was actually a member from another forum I go to.

    I have a friend on the west coast area who had a night where his animals were spooked in the night - instantly thought of him when I read your post. He has something odd going on out there. He has seen a mist, just like a spirit. At first he could sense something and so he took pictures and the mist appeared in the photos. Now he is seeing it directly. (I will get him to pass on the photos so I can post them.) He has all kinds of animals as he has an animal rescue farm.

    Activity has picked up here at our home also. I have seen a shadow figure. One of my kids saw one and my wife saw one walk right beside our bed one evening. I saw one moving quickly around the front of our house outside. As this activity has increased, my sleep has been unsettled. I wake up throughout the night - dreams are not scary, just not nice - and I have awoken from them like they are nightmares. Once with a panic attack type feeling. I do not know if it is the energy around the house that is affecting my dreams directly or if it is me feeling uncomfortable or a combination. Honestly, I have seen shadow figures so many times for so many years that it is not a scary thing at all. It is almost normal.
    Are we seeing an increase in paranormal activity? Or is it just becoming more acceptable to discuss? I do think people are having a tougher time sleeping due to smart meters and wifi of course. Are people having negative dreams from the affects of wifi?

    Hi Strat, that IS funny!! I'd be way too shy to go to an actual meeting, but if we ever have "dream meetings" in the future, I will be sure to go to those ones! ;-)

    I'll be looking more into that, thanks! I had no idea Asian medicine took dreams into account. My socks have officially been knocked off, and now I have to go eat my hat

    I think they're onto something of course As far as I know, blood type is taken into account as well which I think it pretty important.

    My experience and learning echos what you say here Ratzinger.


    Fundamentally, when we ask ourselves "what am I?" - the only real answer that can be said with certainty is "you are something that dreams" - you are this before you are physical, before you are an earthly "creature", before your "life". And by "before", I do not refer to a timeline, I refer to this is your basic state - a dreaming "consciousness", for lack of a better term. In this sense your are a creator - the dreamer is a creator, and the Creator is a dreamer. The two, "dreamer" and "creator" are entirely synonymous. Give that some thought.

    As we are, inhabiting these skins of stardust, we dream inside another dream - the Toltecs and other ancient cultures refer to this as the "big outside dream" - and we merely have chosen to (or "forced to" - depending on how you want to dream it ) dream within this large outside dream - this represents our physical existence. A great Being has dreamed the physical Universes and we have chosen to (or were "tricked into" - if you are say, Christian) dream within that dream. This "Universal" dream is in a "location" that binds it, and hence we have physical elements and physical properties; these are a result. The binding force is Satan. The being that dreams the large outside dream that is bound by the forces of Satan is Lucifer. (Don't get all weird on me now - its a metaphor and always was intended to be). Food for thought.

    Lucifer and Satan are not the same thing - Satan is the force of materialization or the force of binding, and Lucifer is the dreamer who's dream is bound. Consider Lucifer's dream as water vapour in the air, and Satan the force that binds that higher frequency vapour into a lower frequency, rigid solid, that you may see as tiny ice crystals reflecting sunlight on a frigid morning. The binding force, cold, or rather, a lack of heat.

    This bound dream allows us to be able to dream within it. It all started as a grand project initiated from the ... "time" ... before there was a physical realm to dream within. I am using somewhat religious terms here, but only because it contains language that are the closest I can use to portray these thoughts. Language is a bitch, especially when it offers little to no understanding of a concept that is wishes to be portrayed. There's nothing religious about this, but the story - which is a metaphor, has been hijacked by religion - not created by religion. But I digress ...

    Dreaming is the only thing that exists - the only way to express and to create, and the only thing a "human" does - what we are can only dream, that is what we do. We either dream in a free space, outside the binding forces of materialization in our sleeping dreams (which explains their "freedom" of expression), or, we dream within the rigid structure of the big outside dream - this is what we refer to as our "waking lives" - but it is just a dream where change is very slow (compared to a "free" dream), and bindings (laws of physics) are in place due to the binding forces of materialization -- but, change does occur as a result of our will to change the dream - the same as in a "free" sleeping dream - just the rate of change is different.

    But make no mistake -- we are both inside this rigid big outside dream (our waking life) and outside of it, and as a result, we can dream freely from beyond the influence of these binding forces (what we do when we sleep). This indicates that while we are inside this "big outside" dream, we also are simultaneously outside of it. We exist not only here within the physical, but also exist in the so called "heavens" or "ether" or "7D" -- or whatever your metaphor, which clearly is outside the binding forces of materialization (at least to a further extent - when there is no influence of Satan's forces, only "God" exists). Jesus said that we are "in this world but not of this world" - this is what he actually was referring to. Religion has this way of misinterpreting ... or is it misrepresenting? ... everything Jesus, and others that had this understanding, ever tried to tell us.

    Our home is not this low frequency physical realm, but it is ours to experience. And to dream beauty and creation within it. We've been having a little trouble getting on with that end of things as the physical realms are very polarizing and fully distracting, due to the binding forces of materialization, hence how almost none of us even remember our true "home" - our true Source, from which ourselves currently originate. The fact that we can still dream freely (albeit while "unconscious") is testament that we are actually still there, having an experience here. Think about it.


    As far as needing to dream as a restorative function, in my experience it also serves toward applying my will in the physical realm. I now use it as a tool. For my work i sometimes have to solve difficult and complex problems, ensuring not to introduce new problems in the process (difficult with complex systems sometimes). Many, many times, I have told my boss or co-workers - "let me have one sleep and I'll have the answer for you tomorrow". And almost always I do, even if the problem seemed impossible to solve.

    To add: I believe the reason the above works for me is that it easier to solve problems when viewing from the "top down" as opposed to "across sideways" - when you dream freely in a sleeping dream "top down" is the only view in relation to the physical, in our waking lives it is not, and "across sideways" is the view. If we can only learn to perceive both at once, as I believe what has been attempted to be taught by the great past masters, is exactly this, being able to perceive from both places at once ... to alleviate our "blindness" in the physical realms ...

    I loved your post and found it resonates with my own perceptions. I thought it was very concise and fluid and I found myself envious of your eloquent way of putting things. Thank you.

    My dreams have been more intense, odd, not the norm, etc., for about the last week.

    One small dream that stood out for me was where I felt a strong blast of wind hit me face on blowing my hair and clothes. I do not ever recall feeling the wind in a dream - ever. The events in the dream prior to the wind was nothing remarkable.

    I had a flying dream but during that dream I do not recall feeling the wind - only the movement itself.

    It was such a strong feeling of the blast of wind in this dream that it has remained at the front of my mind.

    Maybe no big deal of course, but at the same time I find myself distracted thinking about it. One other thing that may be related or not - that day (after that dream the night before), I was in an odd mental state where when my name was called (just in a regular conversation) it felt strange. Like I wasn't me, or that wasn't my name but I was suppose to answer to it. Then when I spoke my partner's name it was as if I was saying it for the first time. It was a strange feeling and one that I have never experienced before.

    Gotta love dreams.

    I just woke up from a very vivid and disturbing dream.

    I was looking out of a window and saw huge, trident like lightning hit St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans. The whole thing crumbled to dust, much like the twin towers.

    This was some kind of signal to nefarious persons and we, the others, knew we had to leave whatever building we were in, immediately, or risk getting held for some other murky and dark purpose.

    I began to gather my things, which wasn't easy and there was some confusion about who I knew, in the dream, that I could go with.

    I had a white goat named Freenie when I was a child. She was there, but covered with huge open sores. There was nothing I could do for her.

    Hey Val, I am just going with my first impression here - I think that your dream might be reflecting how you are feeling about something that is going on in your life right now as opposed to a warning about some future event.

    Just my feeling of course. And I felt compelled to reply. I think your image of your goat really kicked it for me. Sorry you had to see her the way you did, but I would cherish the visit from her itself, and not focus on the bad part of it.

    Thanks Patient. I didn't really feel like it was a portent of anything, but the energy in it was really frightening and I very seldom have nightmares. I symbolism in the dream was very striking and that is why I posted it, immediately upon waking.

    I just looked up the symbolism of a white goat and it apparently is good luck.

    I'm thinking the white goat with sores may be me. I'm a Capricorn and yesterday I cut a finger while slicing a lemon and got a huge piece of splintered wood in the ball of my foot. It hurt so badly when I pulled it out. Today, the ball of my right foot is so sore that I can't walk on it.

    Just a thought.

    Ouch - seems any type of a puncture wound brings a lot of pain. Hope you feel better soon.

    I am hoping for some lucid dreams - feels like it has been a while.

    Keep a dream journal - sounds lame I know but it works for most. The idea is to increase dream recall. From there, for whatever reason, folks generally start to have lucid dreams. You need to keep a pad and pen right by your bed and write down your dreams ASAP since they are so quickly forgotten. After a while your dream recall will naturally increase.

    You may want to keep it private. If you review your dreams that you've had over a certain period of time (few days to a week for me) it will reveal the deepest aspects of your psyche. Unresolved childhood issues or anything that you prefer to deal with on your own will be blatantly represented. Just something to keep in mind. Somewhat irrelevant to achieving lucidity, but still, something to think about.
