I had a really odd dream sequence this morning. It began at the end of a sequence in which I was cleaning up a travel trailer. I then spoke to the lady I was reporting to. She received a phone call and things changed. The building behind her morphed into a smaller shape. The cars and other buildings also changed. I sensed something was very wrong and began to chase the woman across the street and into a shopping center parking lot. The chase continued, ending when she entered a building and turned toward me. I reached her just as pulled out her phone. We touched, and the scene shifted again. The woman was now younger. It was evident that we had been shifting through time, and I was very nearly stranded in the previous time. I asked for an explanation and a return to my own time. She said she was sorry, and I was a friend, but I was only a distant friend. I thought I was stuck some decades beyond the time I knew. She relented, and we once again shifted to what I supposed to be the present time. The dream sequence pretty much ended here.

I found this to be a notable dream sequence because I have no idea where the elements came from. Does it have a meaning beyond a play on a sci-fi theme? Will a woman, or somebody with a feminine nature, transport me "back into time" against my will? Will I only be able to retain my connection with my time by ardently pursuing her? I don't know, but this is more interesting than cleaning up travel trailers or being chased by monsters.

You could also look at it as a form of self-psychotherapy, as many dreams are meant to be. It's best to ask yourself some key questions, when doing this sort of thing, however. Things that immediately spring to mind, about the dream, to you are key in determining what your subconscious may be trying to convey to you.

One such key thing, as you've already stated by discussing your thoughts after the dream are:
1. Cleaning/cleansing (the travel trailer)
2. The woman
3. The pursuit of the woman
4. Travelling through time

What do these have to do with recent events that have transpired in your life, if anything? Are they relevant to any given situations? If so, perhaps your answers can be found through simple self-analysis of the situation at hand and comparing it with the dream you've had.

This feels to me like the kind of dream that happens in the dreamscape where some few people have the ability to "meet" in the tween spaces and interact.

It's tricky learning how to do this with intent and awareness because the environment is mutually manufactured, sort of by unconscious invocation and/but then translated through the metaphor of each person's dream-language. The more consciousness and intentional, the less it actually happens because the personal metaphor language trumps the other.

Tell yourself a story about this and see if you find you know more than you think

For this to work, you have to hold it like cupping water flowing through your hands. The harder you hold it, the less you get.

If this applies, then cleaning up a travel trailer could be about clearing and debriefing your unconscious from a completed journey - either your waking day in preparation for an astral journey or clearing from an etheric journey.

Can you describe any of your feeling of wrongness -- what KIND of wrongness and was it the woman who was wrong, your context, or something in her environment. What impelled you to follow out of wrongness?

The environment was what cued me to the wrongness. The buildings were getting younger and I did not want to be trapped in those past times. Your advice is good. This would be good material to journey on. (smile)

actually --it could be good stuff for a book

(Permanent Link)
In reverse (future, instead of past transportation) novels like The Falcons of Narabedla, Marion Zimmer Bradley's first novel, presumably came about from a dream. This Richard Horton's review isn't very flattering --and I reckon he is wrong, it was a spellbinding book.

Off to a Great New Year 2008 everybody !

Re: actually --it could be good stuff for a book

That's actually a great way to work with the dreamscape -- writing a book or writing a story.

I perceive some books as experiences of the dreamscape passed through the lens of a specific psyche and then distilled into the structure of a narrative. It's hard for most folks to keep it real - if that's an appropriate term with the dreamscape - since once you hit that and start writing, if you have the gift most often the Group Mind intrudes. Still, since to be effective it has to be a translation, that's a good thing.

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan/A stately pleasure-dome decree:/Where Alph, the sacred river, ran/Through caverns measureless to man/Down to a sunless sea

It seems easier to keep it clear/keep it clean in a piece of visual art, but of course, without the ritual element of narrative, harder for most folk to understand, even as they respond to it.

while I'm asking questions of other people

I would love your thoughts on this:

do you have any thought/guidance on the difference between a Watcher and a Witness from a metaphysical/etheric perspective? It keeps cycling back around as an issue for about the last 10 day.

Re: while I'm asking questions of other people

Probably from Eastern origins, I am more familiar with the concept of observer. This is the part of oneself that is detached enough to stand outside of immediate whims of ego and emotion. While the observer can intercede, its primary role (IMO) is to witness the ego and then inform action after event. Hmmmm... I say this and then it occurs to me that intersession would not be a bad idea, but heck, the emotions are hair-trigger so I suspect the observer often can only pick up the pieces.

My observer is part Watcher and part Witness. When I read the word "Watcher" I am reminded of Highlander. There was a group of humans who would record the events of the immortals and never seek to change outcomes in the process. A witness is different. A witness sees an event and then testifies about it to another person or group of people, such as a witness in a trial.

I would think that it would be good to have a watcher, but a witness would be more practical in the big scheme of things. Now, it occurs to me that you may be talking about entities external to people. Much of the spirit/etheric world are watchers. They observe our actions, trials, tribulations and triumphs. Only a handful of beings are in the witness category, if the definition of a witness is to report/inform after an event.

I'm not sure what I'm talking about. The downside of my gifts is disorder and confusion. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it's a big mistake for me to presume it's actually a duck in certain zones . . . but duck is doubtless a marker or a clue. I can tune things in if I can get perspective from others with different specifics of giftedness.

It's related to the internal watcher/witness but also to external spirits. Not nephilim but it quacks like the Watchers from wiccan tradition and it walks like grigori. Watchers from Highlander and Jehovah's witness also apply . . . somehow . . but I'm JUST NOT GETTING IT. It's like a recurring dream that keeps coming while I'm wide awake.

I think it may be tied to the time/date and will probably clear on it's own whether or not I can tune in any understanding.

Thanks for your help.

Among other things they believed that there were specific doorways or gates leading in and out of "heaven". These portals were believed to be located at the points where the ecliptic (the pathway followed by the sun in its annual progression along the zodiac) crosses over the Milky Way.
Significantly the Sun now sits at one or other of these gateways at the solstices. By a process of analogy: "As Above, so Below", this indicates that it is now that these "stargates" are opening. Adrian Gilbert http://www.adriangilbert.co.uk/docus/books/signs.html
Earth remains in the midst of a rare 144 year Galactic Alignment that happens about every 26,000 years. The main focus of this alignment will last at least 62 more years, perhaps longer. 2008 also marks three crossings of Pluto over the December Solstice marker (a once in 248 year occurrence) Pluto acts as a key that further unlocks this portal for an even deeper more powerful transformative experience. Plus, we are counting down four more years to 2012. The exact date of Dec 21, 2012 may not be any more or less significant than the next 4 years but with all the power of intention and attention focused on 2012 there is certainly a noticeable paradigm shift already underway that may very well culminate in 2012.
More than ever it seems important to be informed and aware of what is going on behind the scenes so we can make informed conscious choices as we engage and navigate these times. In 2008 that just so happens to include a presidential election year in the United States.
That is why I am urging everyone (even if you have already seen this) to check out the movie Zeitgeist as a way to begin investigating what has been hidden and repressed. (This movie is free on the internet at this URL http://zeitgeistmovie.com/index.html or you can buy it for around $5)
And there is a new novel Infinity's Flower A Tale of 2012 and the Great Shift of the Ages, by Jack Allis, an intriguing and compelling read about these issues. Plus, Jack references the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School in both the introduction and in the story.
With Jupiter’s recent move, and Pluto’s upcoming move, into Capricorn and Saturn’s recent move into Virgo we are being asked to look closely at what is working or not working in this middle world reality and to make informed choices in choosing new structures that will benefit all sentient life as well as our beloved Earth.
Along the same lines, The Story of Stuff, is another 20 minute reminder of why it is important to take responsibility for our choices and the resources we are consuming on a daily basis. http://www.storyofstuff.com
This is a time of great change and we have many seemingly new forms of energy now available to help with this transition. Deeksha is one of those powerful blessings of energy available to us now. http://www.deeksha.com Sri Bhagavan founder, along with his wife Amma, of the Oneness Movement here to spread Deeksha reminds us of the essence of Peace.
"If you want peace you should not search for it. You must realize when you put in effort to get peace, that very effort destroys peace

The cleaning is typical in my dreams. Crowds of people I don't immediatly know are typical also. It was the time travelling that caught my eye and that was the first time that something like this has happpened. It is something that I need to watch out for in the future. (smile)

... a 'not-doing' in the Castanedean sense ... perhaps ? (...and, NO MONSTERS !)

Happy New Year 2008 ! May it be a year of Great Dreamings !
