I knew this was a Big Dream the moment I was awakened from it but I didn't realize HOW big until synchronicity came into play awhile later. Things started connecting in a huge way. But I need to get the original dream down before I connect the dots. I am bolding the bits that are or end up being synchronous.
I am in a "locker room" type area and I come out between a few rows of lockers to a male companion? I point to a Dragon pin on my upper chest and tap it - saying this is how you will know me, if I am changed. Then we say goodbye and I walk into this stone building/city. You can see my chicken scratch dream drawing of the layout in the photos up there.
I feel strong and powerful - no hesitations at all during this dream.
Everything feels dark/night and while I don't think it is underground I sense a basementy feel? The stones are huge that make up the rooms and some are damp, I can also hear water trickling somewhere. I tell myself I should use one hand to follow the walls so I don't get lost, like in a mirror maze. When I go to do that I realize I am holding a small metal reddish key that looks like a Egyptian crook.
I turn into a second room and there is a bed/platform in it with a older man who looks spot on like the RWS Hierophant. We don't speak outloud but I hear him in my head and know he wants the key. Then he says to me, "Do you want to choose who/what you always choose or do you want to pick what you are supposed to choose?"
He then looks relieved that I say, after thinking about it, what I am supposed to choose - like maybe I have done this over and over and never chosen correctly. He tells me to continue...
I walk through this wide open stone doorway into an open area. (see my drawing as well as the photo of the Telesterion)
It is night/dark and to my right it feels like open area with grass and rubbley bits of stuff. Straight ahead it is a long road and to my left up a hillish bit is a stone throne thing. Like the RWS emperor card. At first it seems like a stone man is on the throne but then a real man is standing next to it. In the distance a bit off, two people are walking away as if they had just visited the throne.
I am still on the road a bit aways and I notice that my clothes need adjusting. I am wearing a silky type robe (asian/indian?) and it is tied tightly so I can't pull up my leggings which are drooping and it feels very important that I fix this before anyone sees me.
And then my stupid neighbors make a lot of noise and wake me up. Dammit.
There is a lot of symbolism in this dream and to me it was very important but the part I need to really focus on is that a week or so later I was reading Dreamgates by Robert Moss (see the photo of the page of text) and he talks of a Hierophant in a dream and the Eleusinian Mysteries.
I have heard of them but no real knowledge so I of course, Google the hell out of it. And ...
My. Jaw. Drops.
Because I saw the photo of the place, Telesterion, where these Mysteries are held and drumroll.... I walked right into my dream.
There is more but needs to be a different post with another dream and more synchronicity!
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
