Last year, I woke from a dream that had me worried about a close friend for months before he went on vacation. I vividly ‘saw’ him sliding off a dock and into the mouth of a giant shark, which savored every bit of him, before he disappeared. Alarmed, I awoke and sat up, shaken by the gruesome vision.
Knowing my friend well, I knew that if I told him about my dream he would just gently look at me with concern, as if I was crazy, and then change the subject. He would give me the same expression he gave me when I explained to him that fairies were real, but are not visible to everyone. I knew that if I pressed the subject, he might even make fun of me to all our other friends. Yet, I knew I had a responsibility to warn him of impending danger, but how? Read the rest of this entry »
But what do they all mean? Dreams are a way for the subconscious or psychic part of ourselves to work out our problems.
Many of our dreams feature larger-than-life or fantastical images that couldn’t possibly exist in the real world. That’s because they are symbols. Many have written on the subject of symbolism, from the ancient Egyptians to modern psychologist Carl Jung. Just as no two people are alike, nor are their dreams.
You may often ask yourself how to interpret your confusing or murky dreamscape. The first and best way is to keep a dream journal. It’s preferable to have it by your bedside, so you can write it down once you wake up. As you start doing this, you will notice patterns emerging. If you meditate during your waking hours, these recurring images will no doubt appear there as well.

I have had many interesting dream experiences over the years and have witnessed how they often do reflect what is yet to come. I discovered this powerful prophetic nature of our dreams at a very young age.
One of the most memorable dreams from my childhood years involved a tornado. In this recurring dream I could hear the tornado sirens going off and I kept seeing an odd image of a piece of straw that went into a telephone. I kept seeing the time being 4:23 pm and I when I woke up, I knew that something was bad was going to happen. Every time I had the dream the tornadoes would get louder and louder.
Later, in April 1974, I was over my at my grandparents house when the tornado sirens went off. I was 12 years old and I started to freak out, because of those dreams I had been having. The sky was very dark and my grandparents had me go down into the basement for shelter. I remember my grandparents lighting a old oil lantern so we could have light. Read the rest of this entry »
While meditating one afternoon and deep in the alpha state, I heard a male voice say to me: “You need to work, because someone needs you and needs to hear the message that you were given last night.” I was not feeling very social and certainly not feeling much like working, but the voice was crystal clear.
I kept meditating and let it soak in. I mentally asked this voice to show or tell me how and what could this message be? Then I immediately saw an image of my dream journal.
Once conscious, I went over in my mind what I had just heard. Then I went to my room and grabbed my dream journal, which I keep by my head when I sleep. I always keep a clip on night light, so that I can see when I’m recording all my dreams – I often record them throughout the night. Over the past ten years I’ve gotten really good at waking myself up after a really good dream and writing down all I can remember. Read the rest of this entry »
Humans’ perfectionist tendencies arise in all forms of study, application and discipline. This is most apparent in spiritual endeavors. This is as yet an unproven voyage or ascension that people of all cultures seem to believe in. This serves to help us survive reality, survive loss and connect with loss in a more positive manner. Many people have respected their ancestors and still do perform rituals. These caring gestures can be uplifting but also estranging, jettisoning us into a world that we can only dream of, never touch and only abstractly understand.
The ascension process has many pitfalls and points of despair. It is as if the common theme in all ascension is some form of penance, suffering or denial of the physical body. This denial to me is somewhat unnatural and can be taken into forms of zeal and eventually political extremism that has no benefit except for the illogical conclusion that one will be assured a safe place in paradise.

The calming and spiritually protective Amethyst has a mysterious energy about it, and the beautiful coloring makes this purple quartz even more exceptional. It is formed in the presence of manganese and is found in Brazil, Uruguay, South Africa, Madagascar and India.
Just holding a piece of Amethyst helps raise your vibration, putting you into a calmer and accepting frame of mind. It is believed that its very essence heals on the metaphysical and physical levels of our being.
Experts in crystal healing teach that Amethyst Crystals are the foremost stones of the Violet Flame. The use of the violet flame which emanates from this exquisite stone is overseen by the Ascended Master St. Germain. The violet flame helps transmute negative energies in the body and creates harmony. Wearing Amethyst jewelry is a powerful way to absorb the benefits of this magical stone.

The sign over the door to the building read: “The Metaphorical Center For Recycling Euphemistic Baggage”. Inside . . . at either end of a long conveyor belt . . . two more signs read: “Dump Your Old Issues Here” and then “Get Your New Life Here“. Over the middle of the conveyor belt was a big, rectangular machine with flapping rubber doors on either side and a sign over it that read:
“The Transformation Station”
I had heard of this place. A good friend of mine had tried it…so I thought… what the heck…I might as well give it a shot. I was “stuck” and exhausted from carrying around the weight of old stuff that I was hanging on to from my past.
I had so many things to recycle that I had to use one of those long, flat floor carts to bring them up to the starting point on the conveyor belt. I had issues like bitterness, hatred, resentment, sorrow, phobias, panic, compulsions, depression, sexual dysfunction, anxiety, obsessions, pain, and nightmares just to name a few.

Some people reincarnate later, so it takes them longer to achieve the spiritual purification that we are meant to do.
On the flip side, a lot of us reincarnate too quickly, so we are born with so many issues to take care of.
This explains why small children may have many fears and nightmares about certain situations and people they don’t know, and it often leaves the parents wondering, how did this happen?
On a more positive note, it also explains children with exceptional talents; maybe it took them ten lifetimes to develop these wonderful gifts. Read the rest of this entry »
