Transcending the Mundane

Readers who have been following my life know there are many ups, downs, spirals, and paradoxes. And that’s just this week! As we enter the next important lunation, tomorrow’s full moon at 22 degrees Gemini ( less than 1 degree away from my own Gemini Moon), I am picking up the pieces left over from the upheaval of the past few days. My vacation seems like a distant memory now, while current events leave me overstimulated, depressed, and bored. This full moon has many interesting twists: Sun conjunct Saturn opposes it, Chiron squares it, Jupiter trines it ( while sextiling Sun Saturn) and Ceres conjunct Uranus sextiles it ( while making a trine to Sun Saturn.) We could call it a mixed bag, but didn’t I say that already?

To be a bit more specific, look for chances to integrate philosophical or foreign structures, use inspiration to ground rather than scatter, nurture your-Self unconventionally and collectively, and teach what you must learn via creative pursuits, meditation/prayer, and dream-work.

Now, about that dream-work…

I have not been  actively pursuing dream revelations of late, because I feel the need for relief from stimuli. I actually would relish multiple nights of dream-less sleep ( as others have shared online recently). But some significant nocturnal experiences have graced my life despite any otherwise set intentions. Last night was quite rare, a semi-lucid OBE ? aka astral projection journey. I add the question mark because this was different from my occasional OBE. Let me explain: on a few rare occasions I have recalled floating around my home, heading towards the ceiling , leaving my body behind. I was semi-lucid, meaning I had some awareness of my state, but less of an ability to transform the dreamscape, as is the case with lucid dreaming. I have had many more lucid dreams than astral travel journeys, so my understanding is limited.

Last night in the middle of what seemed to be a dream sequence, I get out of bed and begin to walk around. My home is not mine, however and I start flying all about this strange residence. It is filled with a large family. I float from room to room and observe the decor. The home has many rooms, all casually furnished with plenty of books. One room has dark green walls and a dark hued couch. There is some residue from spending last night watching a phenomenal film, Captain Fantastic. I highly recommend this story starring the enigmatic Viggo Mortensen about an unconventional family that lives off the grid .

I watch a man and woman, presumably the couple, arguing and children playing and running wildly as I survey from above. Next I look at the woman and she screams, but no one interacts with me. I ask myself ” Am I a ghost? ” This is why I believe this was astral, rather than a lucid dream. When I have astral projected before, there was no communication between myself and any “characters” that I encounter.

Can anyone offer any feedback with regard to this dream-time escapade? Is it astral projection or something else? Please add your 2 cents in the comment section. Many of you regularly travel various realms and I welcome your input. I was glad to fly around awhile and transcend the losses and disappointments of the last few days, if even for a few minutes. My experience definitely fits in with the Gem/Sag energies,  freely flying (Sag) around a house filled with books and plenty of discourse between its inhabitants. ( Gem).

While we all live in challenging times with plenty of uncertainty, there are sparks of possibility and novelty in the air. May we all fly above the fray by transforming and transcending any and all fears and limitations.

Happy full moon litebeings!

  2. Wow Linda that is really cool. Any flying is a good thing as I see it, and lots of conscious awareness or lucidity! I am impressed Linda.But I have no more knowing of it than you have shared.

    That full moon was AWESOME for me, and you know I have issues with them sometimes, but I was all safe and nested at home, maybe that is why.

    Love you,
    Sindy

    1. Honestly this was a huge deal, maybe despite the fact that I am not sure at all what happened. There is no “orientation” like in college ( that I remember anyway, hehe). This full moon may have been nice for you because the moon in Gem gets along with your moon in Aquarius ( the simple explanation). You seem in a good place and I am glad for it.

      love you too, Linda

    1. Hi Barbara, what happens when I sleep is for the most part, without any direction on my part. This may have been a breakthrough in that it is the first time I recall consciously leaving my body and leaving my house and visiting some other house,lol! But again, not sure what happened! Who knows, you may be exploring as well. Astral travel does not have to be recalled, as far as I can tell 🙂

      love to you and I appreciate your support and friendship ❤

  3. Amazing experience Linda. Congratulations! Sorry I can’t help you with this one — I plead total amnesia, if I have ever had such a tale to tell. But I’m with you — a few nights of resoundingly dreamless sleep and I would be ecstatic! Carry on, Alia

    1. Hi Leigh,
      I always appreciate your commentary and we all have various gifts and skills. In this case, whatever I do is rather automatic, except my lucidity has increased over time, meaning I have slowly been able to recognize my dream state more often. But this is gradual and still only occasional. It may be inherited as my mother has some dream recall and my great cousin recently discussed a visitation he had from my deceased grandmother ( his aunt) right after she died. And he is not someone who is spiritually inclined ( he is more traditionally religious and conservative). I only mention it because ancestral history is one of your things.

      peace and hugs, Linda

  4. Bravo! You had an amazing OBE! So cool!

    Interestingly enough, I had a similar OOB adventure once a long time ago (2005?) when I was visiting the UK. I projected across the ocean to San Francisco, entered a home, explored it and then a woman saw me and said, “It’s you! I knew you were real!” I freaked out and flew out of there with the woman chasing me. lol Interestingly, I also was able to move an object which I had thought couldn’t be moved. In the experience I thought that I was invisible and would not be seen. I had also been there before and knew the location, house, etc. When the woman saw me I clearly thought she wouldn’t, thus the surprise. I concluded afterward that perhaps some “ghost” encounters are in fact multidimensional travelers crossing the veil.

    In yet another OBE I was aware of being in another dimension and flew over what looked like a 18th century ship anchored in a harbor. Very Earth-like. Curious, I flew down and around the heads of its crew, assuming I would not be seen. The captain looked directly at me and gave me a nasty look, communicating that what I was doing was not allowed. I realized then that I had accidentally stumbled into an alternate reality, created by a group who was “practicing” living life in a certain era on Earth. Ha!

    I have found myself in one of these alternate group created realities, a “practice” Earth many times. There are “rules” in these realities and so often we pass through on our OBEs feeling like “ghosts” when in reality they are ignoring us. lol

    1. Hi Dayna,

      Wow your experiences are truly amazing! There is soooooo much to explore and my time with Sarah, Sue and Karin, Barbara, Sindy, etc and others has taught me that we all find our own path. As I have thought more about it, this place seemed as “real” as my living room where I now type at my laptop. i once learned at a journaling workshop that no realm is any more “real” than another, of you know what I am getting at. This practice earth sounds fantastic. My love of science fiction is probably fed by my vivid imagination and my conscious dream recall. A discussion for another time..

      sweet dreams 🙂
      Linda
