Good morning and welcome!
Last night I experienced that great location within myself. In between sleep and in between mental activity. I could feel that space in my head where everything is just perfect. I recognize it and enjoy it. Thats the space where I feel like I am floating. Another term for it that I have is..."high."
It is such a happy space within my head...I am sure that if I meditated, I would experience more of that state! Later I had two dreams...they were lucid....one led to the other, in a sense they were two but became one because of the way in which the scenarios intersected. -Matix like -
The first: I got on a bus to travel somewhere. Before I got on, the driver - who was standing outside - collecting tickets (a strange element, my ticket was a only a note paper!) asked me if I preferred to take an alternate route? I declined and when I got on the bus I saw that I was the only woman and the bus was full. I told him, that I would sit right behind him...may reasoning was that they might think I was his woman and somehow I would be safer! I am not saying this was rational thinking!)
This is interesting because my safety felt "potentially threatened" (I was wondering if the men on the bus would resolve to remain civil in a time of emergency? We live in a society that poses honor, decorum and social graces, but during emergencies our social values can change or even decline.) I began to pray....The one thing about experiences in dreams is how rapidly the environment changes! I was praying and worrying and like a movie another scene occurred...There were at least two women on the bus...and I wondered where the first thought (in the dream) came that I was the only one? The feeling of pleasant travel was restored. Travelers were talking and moving around. I did too. I then decided to move to the back of the bus. I took a seat and began talking to my sister, pleasantly surprised to find her there! (As I reflect on the changes in the dream, I am reminded that the manner in which the dream transformed into scenarios is the same manner that I wish my current waking life would transform.)
We traveled and when we got to our destination it was to a house I had dreamed of before! I recognized having dreamed of it before and that my mother owned this house and we her children had been welcomed to be in it. (That was an element of the previous dream)
In this dream it was large, but built narrowly, and very worn...it was worn before, but had grown worse. My other sister was also there. I noticed the holes in the rooms, big gaping holes in the walls near the floor...I thought about the fact that at night animals could get in and then I saw a raccoon that was not afraid of people. I was eventually successful in getting it to leave... it took me quite a while to "scare" him away. I say that because I think the raccoon left because I "annoyed" him more than scared him.
In the house there were many very interesting things....there were even old clothes...people were walking through parts of the house like it was a vintage store....the house had elements of my currently desired dream house....something I am waiting for now...
The most interesting thing about the dream is the level of comfort I experienced while dreaming it, the level of interest piqued in me and the fact that the dream had a lot of elements taken from my waking life and reformatted into elements of the dream...I recognized that a lot of elements from the dream could be traced to thoughts from the waking world. Including the hopeful thoughts I experienced after reading a comment on my journal yesterday! It is all so very subtle.....but I do recognize the elements.....well that's how the lucid dream world works for me, its a very fluid reality. But I like it because it is very creative and teaches me about manifesting in my current waking reality...my lesson this morning? Recognize and learn from the process of the change in the elements of the dream from discomfort to comfort. When there was fear, I prayed and there was change but I didn't notice the process of the change, I noticed the change....
I have to get back to my-work life....sorry if I left typographical errors today!
warm waves of universal love and light...
thanks for reading and for those who comment....with deep appreciation, i thank you!
