Wow. That was me upon waking up from several series of dreams this morning. The past 2 days has seen a tremendous upsurge in dream imagery and I have been able to not only remember the last dream I have upon waking, but the dreams prior as well.
Upon first glance, they almost seem violent/sad/lonely but then you really get into the layers and find they are powerful, empowering and generally kick ass. When one decides, in dreams, to stop letting things steam roll one, to join with the Shadow, Animus and Self, when subconscious and unconscious merges with Ego.... WOW.
This is the very first time I can remember using "magic," in my dreams. Most of dreams up til now have just been me being average and doing average things. Last night though, after dealing with trials and negative situations in the dream zone, I decided NO MORE. And duuuude, magic happens.
That, was actually an image in my dream - that sort of power I guess. Wave a hand, door slams shut kind of thing. It was awesome and amusing, mostly because I knew I was dreaming, it was kind of lucid, kind of letting it go it's own way to see what happened.
There were some funny scenes, mostly taking place in a mall type setting during the xmas holidays - malls are good settings. Full of choices, things you want to add to your life. Even the little scenes within the big scenes were full of tidbits of symbolism that made me laugh. Dreams never stick symbols randomly, they all tend to mean something... it's remembering what they were that can be tough.
One of my favorite lines that I said was, "I've got weaving skills" which actually cracked me up enough to slightly wake up before going back into the dream. Another tidbit was seeing a woman carrying the magazine, "Where Women Create," in her basket. I am like, "OMG can you be more obvious and AM I PAYING ATTENTION?"
Deciding to own your power, to become the hunter, not the hunted, is a huge thing. And once I quelled all the negatives in my way? I had a lunch date with me, myself, and I, in the form of me, a female and a male, also, me... and we all sat at a table and the scene was happy and filled with love.
I have never had anything like this last series of dreams and it felt very awesome and empowering. And it gave me a lot of direction. Dreams are good that way, if you listen to them.
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
