Dream: Video of the Sky

11 April 2017

In the dream, something is happening which can’t easily happen if at all in real life. But seeing it happen in a dream is a good reminder of the dreamworld’s way to get us to think about infinite possibilities.

Because it’s not something which usually happens in the time & space of the physical realm it’s a bit hard to describe.

But I’ll try.

In the dream there was a really beautiful landscape which was somewhat mountainous or hilly, with water & trees. A typical Canadian outdoor landscape actually.

Here’s where it gets hard to describe.

At the same time it was as though three things were happening:

  1. I was standing there on a hill looking out at the water.
  2. Someone was filming the landscape for a documentary and I was standing beside them.
  3. I was watching the documentary through the lens of the filmer as though it had already been recorded & edited.

18813261_10158905010850595_8638673903044553817_nThe view started off at the bottom, filming the ground and then slowly raised up over the water, then the horizon, then into the sky & clouds.

I remarked that it was good to do it this way because it gives viewers a context in time and place by seeing the grass and then to go upwards like that allows for the experience of expansion and visioning where things were going.

As I watched the film, it was as though the camera was on a 360 degree spin and it spun around back to the beginning point. Then it even spun around and had the appearance as though there was sky in all directions.

I got a spin in my stomach as though I was on an amusement park ride and felt thrilled and excited.

This dream signals some change around an issue I’ve had for a while. The issue is about removing fears around writing so personally in a public space. My private public journal. It also ties in components of finances, promotion, and striving for empowerment.

When I used to have a lot of issues around this then the fears showed up in my dreams as limitations. For example, I would swing high into the sky but then of course always come right back down. I couldn’t fly off the swing and soar the way I wanted to.

Later the issue showed up in dreams about being on farris wheels and spinning at the top and getting nausea.

Last night’s dream was the most positive sky dream I’ve had which I can recall.

The very interesting thing is that I always had the sensation of being grounded, my feet firmly on the grassy ground, even when the view of the sky did it’s spin. It was like being on the ground and also soaring at the same time. I guess it is the kind of illusion that film-makers go for when they create IMAX movies that give you the impression you are really in the movie’s location even when you are sitting comfortably on a chair in a theatre.

Anyway, it signals some growth for me in this area and I am excited about what is to come next.

Dream: North wind, Ocean Storm, Mountain Climb

20 March 2017 6:29am – Spring Equinox (Equal Night!)

  • Doodled quickly during a game & when I was done I saw an image of a young girl’s face blowing air like the North Wind
  • I also doodled a plant in bright light, mid-sun and one in the dark & dying
  • In one scene I am floating on a boat in a stormy ocean and know my way
  • In another scene I have climbed to the top of a very high mountain range ~ it’s stunningly beautiful but I was trying to get to a neighbourhood so then I say to my travel companion we have to keep going, I think the neighbourhood is that way
  • In another scene I’m resting after a long journey, in the cold, and am with a few other travelers ~ there is just one or two blankets we are all sharing and I do not have enough to cover me so I keep pulling it over and they keep pulling it back. I try to just let it go but it’s far to cold with nothing so I have to insist

 

This dream series has extremes in positive & negative. When I woke up I felt refreshed & renewed & invigorated like I had just been on a long hiking vacation and was back now with really great memories and new enthusiasm for day-to-day life. The funny thing is that in real life I haven’t traveled or done much outside of my own home town and yet my heart longs for that experience. It’s kinda cool though that I had it in my dream last night.

The most positive is the feeling when I arrive at the top of the mountain range. The beauty was so magestic and I was just captivated & awe-struck at how amazing it was. I had mixed feelings though because it wasn’t the goal. But I’ve never seen such beauty in my life. The mountains spanned all across the horizon as far as I could see. White snow capped mountains everywhere. And in some places the rock had formed in a curl which looked like the curl of a wave. It was amazing. So this means I can go to great heights in my path of helping others.

The most negative of the dream was trying to sleep in the cold north and not having enough blankets. I didn’t want to disturb the others who kept taking the blanket yet I could not sleep with the small amount they were giving me.

So that is a metaphor for the cold ways people in the past have treated me. Because I forgive easily and have the capacity to tolerate a lot of negatives sometimes people can do or say extremely negative things and get away with it.

The dream reminds me that sometimes, if the person doesn’t take a hint when the message is small, like me tugging on the blanket to get more, then something more direct will be needed, like me telling them “Hey, I need more blanket.” It’s not a big deal to need more and ask for it.

The other part of the dream, when I doodled and unconsciously drew a face, I guess that is just a message to remind me that even when I’m focused on one specific thing then another thing can be accomplished and it can be really cool.

Daily Dream Diary – Saving a Baby From a Burning Car

In the dream, I learn a baby has been left in a car. Someone points out to me that a metal piece from one car has poked a hole in the car with the baby. The hole is near the gas tank. Just as I’m thinking to remove the baby then the owner gets in the car to drive away. The others tell him to stop but he doesn’t because he is like a mobster and thinks he can do anything he wants. So he turns the ignition again. From where I am I can see sparks begin to fly and yet he tries again. The others don’t know what to do to get him to stop but I have an idea.

As I go to the baby to remove her I also shout, “STOP! Fire!” and those words catch his attention. But it’s too late. He turns the ignition again and the car bursts into flames. Luckily I had very quickly untied the 6 month old baby and held her close to me as I ran a distance away. Not even the heat of the flames could reach me.

Later I did two things. I brought the baby to her parents and I told them what I did. I said it was good that I was able to remove her and I said if they hired me privately as a full time care-giver then I could have full rights to continue protecting her. I told them as a private arrangement we have more rights than if we don’t formalize it. They agreed.

Then I went back to the parking lot at the car dealership and found two police investigators checking out the remains of the burnt car. I approached them calmly and after a few attempts at starting I was able to tell them what I had seen and heard. They were grateful for my information because no one else survived and they had no idea what happened.

(Interestingly, because I explained the details to the investigators in the dream then when I woke up I could remember the details with more clarity.)

My input helped them figure out what happened.

I had two other dreams. One was a really awesome river dream in that I was flowing and floating down a peaceful river with friends and could easily kick and splash my feet. When I think of the action and the way I was swimming it was like I was a mermaid, although I wasn’t conscious of that in the dream. It was such a playful and carefree experience.

In another dream, I was in an apartment in a high sky-rise with Gracie and a friend or two. They were playing around and then something caught my attention that someone from far away in another high sky rise was monitoring us from a great distance with binoculars. I took action and closed the blinds. There was a bit of confusion and then we were outside. I saw one or two people in black and one person was very tall and in green. It was more like an intelligent creature, sent to scare me but I wasn’t scared.

I gave instructions to the girls and later when I was talking to those who hired me as a care-giver I mentioned this strange surveillance issue. They were not worried and basically told me to keep doing what I’m doing.
