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!

Dreamwork Works!

Happy Pisces everyone! I could ask where does the time go, but at this point it would be redundant. I had planned to write the next installment of Colonodyssey, but this dream I recorded takes precedence.

I recently purchased a new journal. I do most of my writing these days here on my blog, but felt the need to resume a private journaling practice. My old journal was filled and I found this cool owl decorated replacement. By the way, I am keeping Owl, Deer, and Tiger as continuing totems. Owl has clearly been more prominent of late, but I had one in – person multiple deer sighting recently, and tiger is appearing more online and on TV, etc.

In any case, this gorgeous journal is enticing me to write more, which includes dream documentation. I will admit my dream recording is quite sporadic at best. However, what I am about to share has convinced me it really is in my ( and everyone’s) best interest to record as many dreams as you remember.

Now to the entry:

1-16-16 or 1-17-16

Mom’s Easter Birthday Party

Mom tells me we are invited to a huge ( 19 people) dinner at Ann’s house. This will take place the night before Easter. Easter is my mom’s birthday ( in real life her birthday is in April.  Occasionally it will fall on Easter.) She wants me to take off work. I am unsure of this.  I could call out sick, but did not want to do so.  I tell her I could take a Vacation Day off but better take care of this now because everyone will want the day off. I ask Mom how old she is. It was not a major birthday. I was unsure why we were having a major gathering for a routine birthday. (This dream takes place in present time.)

I then question my mom about Ann. ” Doesn’t she have Alzheimer’s?”  My mom replies ” No, she’s fine.” I am thinking to myself that my mom is in denial.

I call my mom upon admittance to the hospital on February 10th. She tells me that Ann, one of her best friends, had just passed away. She died from Alzheimer’s disease. Apparently Ann’s birthday was January 25th and she died on February 1st. I did not know when Ann’s birthday was, nor was I aware of her passing. I was aware of her condition but I have not seen her in decades, nor have I thought of her recently. I do not recall ever dreaming about her. She does not materialize in the dream but I do recall seeing her house where the dinner was to take place. Now I am wondering if that was the location of the post – funeral gathering. Apparently Ann and her husband recently relocated back to New Jersey and the funeral took place there. My mother did attend the service and told me she saw many of her relatives. I did spend time with Ann’s children and step children while I was growing up. I was fond of both Ann and her daughters who were a bit older than me.

I seem to be more clairvoyant and clairsentient of late, with a trifle clairaudience and telepathy thrown in for good measure. I have become incredibly tied into the synchronicity flow, but less psychic. I typically become psychic on demand if I am reading someone, but otherwise those abilities have appeared to dissipate. So imagine my surprise when I came upon this entry just a few days ago. My mind was blown. The dream happened just a few days before Ann’s birthday and subsequent passing.

I do not celebrate Easter, but know it is the day of Christ’s resurrection. So interesting that the day before Easter was highlighted in my dream. This clearly seems linked to Ann’s transition.

According to my research, the Ancients called 19 the ‘Number of Surrender’ as your life needs to link up with the Universal Life. Not exactly an easy number, number 1 represents ‘new beginnings’ and number 9 represents ‘endings’. When number 19s have determination to erase past mistakes they then develop their true Spiritual character with unshakable faith and a philosophy that will sustain them. 19 / 10 / 1 relates to an experience you have chosen on your path that cannot be avoided. It gives you an opportunity to stand on your own two feet and says that you will need all of the positive traits of 1 through to 9 to get through the experience.

It appears that 19 could be linked with my relapse and Ann’s passing. I can see the significance of this number in my dream scenario. It is also interesting that I did not want to take a sick day. Clearly I did not want to become ill again. Yet it appears that both my relapse and Ann’s passing were inevitable.

The takeaway ~ You never, never, know what your dreams will show you. I recently was telling someone about how dreams can take on different meanings over time. I have been able to identify that current lovers were actually forecasted in past dream sequences. In some cases, there was a significant gap between the dream and the manifestation. I am aware intellectually that time and space are just constructs, but it never fails to surprise me when I discover that I have accessed the future.
