Dream – 9 March 2014

20140309-103541.jpg

I drive my vehicle into a garage, as if to get an oil change. Ordinary-looking people working there…

I don’t recall getting out of the vehicle, there’s a bit of a skip in the dream as next I find myself sitting in a room in what resembles a doctor’s office. People work there wearing scrubs, things look sterile, and I sense that I’m in a small part of something that’s quite huge.

There’s a woman in scrubs sitting at a table or desk with me, and we’re looking over a floor plan drawing. It’s quite rough, looks like an old photocopy. It seems like my memory enters this part of the dream in midstream: she and I are already discussing that when I arrived in my vehicle, I was also carrying a stretcher on which lay the body of a man who had just died.

She was giving me instructions for where to take the body… Pointing out in the plan: “So, first, you get back to the vehicle by going this way, then you get the stretcher and take him here (her finger tracing the plan), and then after you drop him off, you go back this way, and go here.”

I got the idea that this man’s death was unexpected, and we needed to take care of him first. Then I could carry on with the reason I had come there. I have the strong impression that he was my guide or driver, and that since he had died I had been forced to complete my journey there alone, without quite being sure of what I was doing.

He was a late-middle-aged man, average to small height and build, with very light gray hair. He was dressed in dark blue pants and a light blue shirt, like a car mechanic would wear. His death had not been violent as I recall… And now his body was just a corpse on a stretcher, covered with a burgundy blanket and strapped down.

I repeated the map instructions back to the woman, to make sure I understood. The plan was quite maze-like and a lot of the corridors looked the same. She left the room and I sat for a moment, continuing to study the plan.

Then someone wheeled a gurney into the room where I sat. They locked the wheels and quickly left. At first I thought it was the same stretcher with my companion on it, because the man on this one looked remarkably like my fellow. But as I looked closer, I saw this fellow was smaller, wiry, with darker hair, very tanned skin, and his face was creased with many wrinkles. He looked like someone you might see lying in a street, worn from being homeless for decades. His features seemed Hispanic.

As I watched, though, this man grimaced and moved, and it was clear that he was alive, just sleeping or unconscious. So I knew I still had to follow through on my task of delivering my companion’s body and showing up at my assignment.

That’s all I can remember of the dream.

When I woke, I started sketching the floor plan, what I could remember, because I knew there was something to learn from that. I began with the little offices and corridors and the garage… And on the garage side, I recalled a bit of the approach, as if through a neighborhood with houses and low buildings.

But “behind” the garage, the building continued on and on… And as I sketched I sensed huge spaces and thick walls and curved boundaries… Air locks and gaskets and vertical shafts, thick many-layered walls… Could be Heruka’s mansion, or a “ship”…

Then I explored the boundary between the neighborhood/ garage area and the inner spaces of the larger construction. There was no clear boundary; it felt like a shimmering, fluid, transparent film that pulsed and oscillated.

As I’m posting this I realize this dream is like so many I’ve had on Chimera: one layer appears as ordinary world, while there’s an alternate layer that seems ship-like, other-worldly…

Does it imply something like a hologram? Which side of the boundary is “real”? Perhaps both?

      • Plenty of dreams, for sure, although there often does not seem to be any clear boundary between “asleep” and “awake”. Also what happens seems more related to “personal” stuff than “collective”. If/when that changes I shall think of posting; in the meantime it comes more through creative writing/comments. I write and then see what I have written to myself (and maybe others who read).

  1. It might help to think of warm and cold areas of water, and the differences between salt and fresh water. It is all water but different forms of life can live in each. There are warm and cold spots, and different ways of adapting to each area… As in an estuary there are also places of transition. A fish in the lake can’t live in the ocean, and vice-versa, although a few animals are happy in either place.

    Thank you Leslee for this excellent drawing. I am curious about death in dreams – in this context it seems to be a helpless state that relies on you to do something for him. It might also be symbolic of showing weakness for a specific purpose. I also wonder why we would assume someone is dead in a dream… I guess it’s just how things play out. šŸ™‚

    • What a fantastic analogy, DW! Or like the shimmer of a mirage…

      It’s interesting, your interpretation of the “dead” person… I have felt on many levels lately, the burden of others relying in me. I struggled with it for a bit, and decided to just plug along my way trying not to worry about whether I’m fulfilling the wishes of others. I still have quite mixed feelings about it, but it feels better to be moving.

      Ironically, in the dream I was quite irritated by having to memorize the route from the plan, and being left alone to handle it. I felt like I was inadequately prepared for what I was being asked to do. I confess I often feel this in waking life too!

      NamastƩ!

      • Somehow, the better we are at something, the more we tend to doubt our own abilities. ā¤

        Not sure if you recall but a fairly recent medtation took me through an area of space with many ego-based spirits. On the other side/in the center was a "perfect" earth, much like the buddhist mandala. So I think this was actually saying, we are passing through this region of chaos right now. As you say, this has the effect of weighing us down…

        • I can’t recall if I read that medtation, or if I was AWOL at the time… but what you describe, with the ordinary appearances, sounds a lot like the Charnel Grounds, which surround the ceelstial mansion in the mandala. It’s still enlightned activity, but with an ordinary appearance… šŸ˜‰ When I was a nun we used to joke all the time about living in the charnel grounds (western culture); it lent smoe lightness to things and helped in the getting through it all… šŸ™‚

  2. God…dear Leslee : I think I have ever been there during my dreamflight in November?! It’s too striking to me….Thank to your awesome drawing, otherwise, how could possibly get this !!! Besides, these three comments aligned here are extremely significant to me. God…you really don’t know what you just made and have made !!!

    • Hi Feilla, it sure felt like a place where we have all been together, many times… I would have been delighted (if not surprised) to see any of you there! I’m so glad if you find this helpful! Lots of love to you, Sister!

  3. Dearest Leslee I was drawn to post this here.
    Early this morning I had the sense I was somewhere and that what I was doing was of great significance The place was large a Laborotory or hospital theatre I was creating something someone but the humanoid was all white with no features. I stood just looking at it and could hear some one saying to create is not as easy as you first thought as you must leave behind all that you have learnt here for it s teachings are flawed by Mans hands. To be able to create you must have the universal timing right, the mindset that in essence is linked to the all as one then you are able to create at soul level in light and love balanced in every way thus the energy and vibration are in tune. Much love sister Suzanne

    • Wow, Suzanne! I think/hope I already said where you posted it, that your dream resonated a lot with mine… It feels like perhaps we were sharing, somehow. Yours carries a powerful message. Sounds and feels quite valid. NamastĆ© to you too, sister!

  4. Hi Leslee, when I looked at your drawing, the first thing that came into my mind is that it very much looks like a spaceship. Thanks for sharing your dream, I love dreams. Off to record my dream.

    Love Lisa
