Last night’s dream had to have been one of the most colorful and playful dreams I’ve ever had. I know I’ve probably said that before and in their own right all the dreams that have claimed that title have been absolutely wonderful but this one is on my mind now and for it being recent it has my focus and awe. In this dream, I am witnessing my life moving through all the many rooms and scenic landscapes which piece together the visages of my life.
As I look carefully at the detail with which the dream has rendered it in my mind I notice it is held together like puzzle pieces. Each puzzle piece perfectly laid and locked in place. Nowhere is there a puzzle piece out of place. The pieces go on forever. Everything everywhere is held together. As I float through the dream experiencing it I am reminded Candyland. Everything is cartoon like in its simplicity, innocence and creativity. Its a peaceful place. I hear a narrator who begins to tell the story. It is such a wonderful story. I think this is what inspires artists to write songs and sing. I wish I had my voice recorder handy to capture the words of the narrator. Not wanting to disturb the dream, I focus in on his words trying to commit it all to memory.
As the story comes to a climax, each puzzle piece becomes a tiny person with a light body much like a firefly. All pieces take flight at once. There is an overwhelming sense of joy and freedom. The feeling overcomes me causing me to focus in on my body. Who am I in this dream? What body do I have now? I look at myself to find I too am a firefly with a light body.
Last night as I was falling asleep I had a pre-dream where I knew I was in my bed trying to fall asleep. I felt my partner slip into bed with me and come in from behind to cuddle me. I loosened my arms to accept his embrace and settle back into the comfort of his chest. I feel his breath against my neck. After a moment, I he whispers in my ear, “Are you afraid of me?” With his words, I thought why would I be afraid of you? His words jar my awareness enough to question my present situation. I assumed he was Joe my ex partner but if he was Joe then this had to be a dream because Joe and I are no longer together. Still feeling his presence behind me I answered, “Who are you?” I snuggle his arm around my belly pulling him in closer. He then taps my forehead 3 times as if to tell me to wake up.
His tap on my head startled me. It was something I felt physically and was completely unexpected because my focus was on his chest and arm. I immediately thought, how did he do that? I knew at this point his embrace wasn’t physical but instead part of the dream. I took caution to try to remain in the dream, but unfortunately i came too. I then realized it was my my own fingers which I had on my head that provided the physical sense of tapping my head. I think he hit my funny bone which made my fingers twitch causing the taps.
Now awake I turned and to see my son Oliver quietly sleeping beside me. He was looking in my direction.
~~~~~ DREAM ENDS
This dream left me very startled because it crossed over into the physical. Even though it was my own hand tapping me the timing was not accidental. It signaled to me this was important but what could it possibly mean. Maybe this hold the key to possibly finding love again. Maybe its telling me I already have the love of my life and purpose for living my son who lays beside me. Maybe it is a question I need to seriously consider and who was this who settled into my bed.
I had a very impressionable dream last night. In the dream I am told the O Street Mansion is going out of business. I’m sad to hear about the decision and ask why they have taken this decision. I’m told to look around to see if I can figure it out. After a few moments the woman who is guiding me says, “It’s haunted, look carefully at the kitchen.” In the kitchen I see a water leak in the kitchen above the sink. The water seems to be coming from a mysterious point of origin as if from another dimension with no point of origin in this dimension.
Something in me knows I have the power to fix the situation. I feel an intimate connection to this place. It seem to call to my name. I tell my guide I wish I could take over the business. She tells me I can but I must decide by midnight tonight. I express my doubts considering the enormous cost to conduct the business. She then tells me the business pretty much pays for itself all I have to do is claim it for myself. She tells me to consider it and decide within the time window allowed.
Still not convinced I can do it I decide to walk through the mansion. I seem to know the place well. It is very familiar to me. There used to be a stage where performances were conducted. I recall working here at one point in time. I also recall the ceiling chandelier was a Pegasus. My desire to see the Pegasus again causes me to take flight ascending high toward the ceiling where the Pegasus is located. I reach the Pegasus and examine as my recall expands. The Pegasus has a label. It appears to be a business card with the name of the business and the date 2041. At this point I become lucid knowing this is an important dream to bring back to my waking life.
Now fully lucid, I want to know more. I recall when I worked here the owner lived in the upper floor of the mansion where the ghosts also resided. She had the power to command the ghosts and keep them in line. With this knowledge my awareness expands. I now find myself in the top floor of the house. The owners quarters. I know only I have the means to solve this mystery. I then see my mothers purse. It is the purse I kept as a reminder of my mom after she passed away. I search through her purse and thumb through her billfold. There are several certificates. Oliver’s birth certificate is here along with the deed to the title of the mansion.
“I accept, I accept and I expect to get the parking space.”
~~~~~~~ DREAM ENDS
After saying I accept in the dream, I immediately woke up. It was such an important dream I felt I had to record it. Initially I thought the dream was telling me how long I would live, ie till the year 2041 when I too would leave a purse behind. Why else would that year be so important.
Today I received word my aunt and godmother passed away. She was my mom’s sister. I’m sure the dream was indicating her passing as well.
In this dream I find myself at my mom’s walkway toward her house. I can see her front door and her neighbors door which is immediately adjacent to her door much like a mirrored image. I see a woman turn the corner and open the door. She is wearing my moms pink blouse. I quickly move to follow her into her unit. As I approach I realize I am seeing double. There is a duplicate woman entering simultaneously into the adjacent door. I am confronted with a dilemma which of the two should I follow?
I decide I can’t afford to loose sight of her since I believe it is my mom. I split my consciousness and enter both doors at once. Once inside the apartments I realize the apartment is connected inside to the other half. Although I don’t see my mom anymore I know I am in her home. The right home. I have a sense of peace. I sit on the couch relieved to be home. As I sit there content I fall into a dream.
I am now having a dream within a dream. In the dream I recreate the steps taken to have my son. My loins fill with a sexual feeling of ecstasy. I understand how my consciousness split to create Oliver. I feel like I am hyperventilating with an overwhelming feeling of euphoria. I when I come to from the inner dream I see my son’s face. His eyes pierce my soul and I awaken from the dream.
In last night’s dream I am with my son. He is an infant in real life but here in the dream he is a bit older like around the 12 month mark. He looks at me and says, “Daddy.” I am shocked because he has not spoken any words yet so for me to hear the first word out of his mouth as Daddy is very touching to me. It is at this point I realize he looks different. His hair is golden and he has strands of hair partially cover his face.
This dream vision I had today when I took a brief nap in the afternoon. I didn’t believe I would be able to fall asleep but shortly after I closed my eyes a man approached me. He bent over and looked me in the eyes. Once we made eye contact he asked, “Are you Peter?” He caught me off guard and I assume it was a real person. Someone with authority to ask me who I was. Feeling the need to answer him I replied in an audible voice, “Ruben”. I was so tired and drowsy from the onset of the dream I could barely get my name out of my mouth. As he returned to a upright standing position, I could see his penis. His penis immediately ejaculated. I had the feeling I had come to late because how did he manage to ejaculate so quick. I heard a voice say, “We are giving you a child.” I touched the semen with my index finger to see if it was for real. I felt something but couldn’t come to a conclusion if this was for real or not.
Confused I wondered if this person was predicting another child for me? Inside me I wanted clarification. Do you mean you are giving me the child I already have or are you giving me a second one. I don’t think I can handle two.
This is a group of dreams I had recently that I haven’t been able to journal because of time constraints. I think this is the first dream I’ve journaled since the birth of my son Oliver. Being a parent now in the early days is exhausting but I felt I needed to get back to journaling.
In this first dream, I am needing to summon my strengths. I’m not sure what strengths are needed or why but I vaguely remember praying for advice and the strength to carry on at home with Oliver and with deal with my loneliness in not having a relationship; my two biggest desires Oliver and a relationship. In the dream, I seem to have come into a state of knowing within the dream a sort of awakening at a the point immediately after I have given my supplications. As my awareness expands with the answer I am told I already have what I need at my disposal I simply need to summon it up. I am in my dining room and see the two crosses I have hanging on the wall each representing the crosses of my mom and dad when they died.
I somehow know I can call on the strength of Jesus through the love and memories of my mom and dad. Yet I still have doubts I can do this. Knowing the dream cannot be wrong I decide to try to reach within myself and do as instructed by summoning the power from within. I begin to feel a well spring rising within me as the walls begin to move. The walls spread apart to embrace a greater space. I realize it really does work for me to believe.
Encouraged by my success I continue to pull from within. The walls continue expanding to reveal an ocean where from the horizon comes toward me the body of Christ in the air. Unlike the two crucifixes which hung on the dining room walls this body is an illuminated body.
In the next dream I am returning to a previous dream. It is the second time I have been here. I am downtown where I work. Since it has been so long I am trying to remember where the metro is located. I think once I find the metro I will be able to find my way home. I start walking and take a turn. I quickly become disoriented and can’t remember in which direction to go. I reach for my cell phone to look up the directions but my cell phone is different. It has features I am unfamiliar with. The camera is on as if it is recording my actions. I am unable to pull up a map on the phone because the camera will not stop recording.
I continue to walk and pass by a group of people. I ask them to give me directions. They recognize me as one who is not from the area and they refuse to give me any assistance. I have to figure it out for myself. I continue walking and run across a second group of people this group is colleagues from work. Again I attempt to ask them believing they will be favorable to assisting me. From my question, they can easily identify me as a foreigner to this place again they refuse to answer. One within the group signals me indicating it is the wrong type of question. I have to find a way to get the answer indirectly.
The next group of people I come across I decide to change my approach. Instead of them dismissing me I immediately dismiss them. I decide to tell them to take a hike. They shrug me off in return indicating I can ride the train out ie their way of telling me to take a hike, I thereby get an indication of where the train station might be locate. I now know the metro is in the direction of the shrug.
In this next dream, I meet a guy with whom I am developing a relationship. He takes me to his condo. Come to find out he has a unit in Sunset Harbor South. My ex an I used to have a condo in Sunset Harbor North. A part of me knew someday I would return to this place. I am standing on the balcony overlooking the bay. It is a corner unit from which I have a view of Sunset Harbor North. Knowing exactly where I am I tell him we are in Sunset Harbor South. He is somewhat surprised I am able to determine my location.
Last night’s dream ended with a gift. I was allowed to ask a question. I seemed to know I should think hard about the question so I could ask a good one. So during the dream I held my thoughts regarding the question I would ask until the end.
In the dream, I am with my parents they have come to visit me. I am trying to figure out if I can work my living situation out such that I can have them stay with me indefinitely. I don’t see a need for them to return to California since they don’t really live there anymore. I will need to make accommodations for my parents since they are elderly and are unable to navigate the stairs in the house. I decide my dad needs the most help. He will be able to remain in the basement and come up to the rest of the house as needed. The railing will support him should he need to come up. I decide I’m going to do it. My decision is made they will remain with me.
While in the basement I notice water is coming down the walls. I immediately run upstairs to assess the situation. There is a man spraying refrigerant on the mattress in the bedroom but he has the doors and windows open which is causing condensation to occur. The refrigerant is also causing the drain in the nearby bathroom to freeze. His task seems impossible with the windows open. He struggles to freeze the bed but he is working harder than he should if he only knew to close the windows. I immediately address the issue and close all the windows and doors. I take the plunger to the sinks to dislodge the ice which allows the water to flow freely through the drain once more. I believe I have remedied the situation in the nick of time.
I now realize I am running out of time. I need to decide on the question to ask before I leave the dream. If there is one question I could have answered what would it be? If I could only call 411. It hits me. I ask, “I need more information.”
Last night’s dream came somewhere in the middle of the night when suddenly I sensed someone’s presence beside my bed. This person was here to announce “The Phone Call” meaning it was time for labor. I had not heard the phone ring but I assumed if someone had to come get me out of bed I had better get up.
I immediately stood up out of bed and looked around to gather my composure and ascertain what is happening to me. At first, my world was befuddled and unclear. I am frustrated I am unable to wake up fully yet I stand in the feet of the man who has announced the call. I imagine if I am dreaming, I must be having an out of body experience. I struggle to break free to move from this stand. If I am dreaming I must be able to fly. I struggle to take flight but a tether seems to keep me connected to the dreaming man. Is he not hearing the phone ring? Does he not recognize the urgency which surrounds him?
Unable to awaken the man, I am determined to find out if the call is real. I seem to be able to move in the direction from which the call is originating. The direction is Richmond. I set on my way there. The journey is long.
I can’t remember specific details after this point. What I do recall was what it felt like to travel there. The journey was so profoundly incredible. I recall thinking in the dream there is so much here to remember how will I ever journal this. I knew in the dream there was no way I could put the experience to words. In the end, I came away with a great sense of accomplishment and success at getting there on time and being a part of the experience of birthing my child into the world. An experience I am sure never to forget.
~~~~~~~~~ DREAM ENDS
Just out of curiosity I looked up the meaning of Richmond.
The name Richmond is a German Baby Name. In German Baby Names the meaning of the name Richmond is: Strong protector.
Last night I had a super cool dream. It happened right as I was waking up. In the dream, I can see the universe in some primordial fog that is percolating like in a cauldron. The fog is captivating. I recognize it as something very special from which all things originate. My view of it is partial. Sensing there is much to this which is unknown to me, I feel myself levitating and in so doing, I am offered a new vantage point from which to experience the whole of creation. I now see the entire universe before my eyes.
As I levitate higher and higher, I feel as if I have detach from my body. I turn to my right to look in the direction where I stood previously. In turning, I see the profile of 3 eyeballs lined up sequentially almost as if I am looking at myself in a mirror within a mirror. A ray of lightning reflects in each eye creating a very long horizontal thunderbolt. The sight reminds me of one of those plasma balls with the electrical currents passing through it.
I sense this is something very special.
A moment before I opened my eyes I felt a kiss on my temple beside my eye and I heard its pucker. It was the same kind of kiss I give my dog in the morning filled with an intense love. Someone kissed me. In that moment, I felt very special and loved. Someone in the universe loves me.
~~~~~~ DREAM ENDS
So today I had scheduled to take my car in for maintenance. While waiting for my car to be ready I decided to check out to new model cars. The first car I sat in had interior lights which ran in a horizontal line from the left door, across the dashboard, and continued along the right door. It felt like my dream all over again. The light had a neon illumination and was the same color as the lightening bolt reflected in the eyes from my dream.
I ended up buying a new car a Mercedes GLE350. In some peculiar way, I felt the universe was giving its blessing (kiss) to make this purchase. Considering the laundry list of items that needed repair on my old car, I believe it was time for a new car.
