using your Truth Love Energy to learn how to choose, and to choose how to learn
One of the coolest things Michael does is dream interpretation. This is Michaels' take on a dream I had a couple of days ago.
[Maureen]: What do you make of a dream I had the other night – It was very strong and vivid – I would appreciate any comments you may have please?
January 23 AM – In the dream either I or someone else (wasn’t clear) was going/planning an arduous, solo sailing trip. I said – “well I‘ve done that “.
I guess there must have been (but I don’t recall how) disbelief because I felt I had to explain or “prove” that I had done this. I “remembered” being in the boat - on a slightly stormy night - stopping at the side of a “continent’ (east side of North America) – slogging through the shallow water to get to shore – I think to sleep for the “night” or to eat I’m not sure. And then I remember being on the east coast of (what seemed to me as) Africa. It was sunny – the cliffs were very high – the water was beautiful but too deep to even consider making a landing. I was in awe here with the sheer beauty.
Now I remember – yes – it was someone else thinking of making the trip – but they were worried about being lonely – I said “I wasn’t lonely at all – not even once – as I was with Essence – completely – the whole time”.
At that point Lorie (my husband) remembered that he had “proof” – that he had made me hand-written “maps” for the journey – but when we went to find them – in a storage unit – they were gone.
At one point in the dream – towards the beginning – I actually questioned myself on whether or not I had done it – but then I remembered - quite vividly - doing it.
Later in the middle of the dream I woke - right up - and had total vivid “recall” of doing it – but as I lay awake – for a short while – “reality” started to impinge and I could “see” how impossible it would have been – in reality – just the sheer physicality of it – and I started to notice errors. For example - I recalled that I didn’t actually do anything with the sails – LOL – and it WAS supposed to be a sail boat! But in some fashion I felt I HAD done this “Hero’s Journey” – on some level – “for real”.
[Maureen]: I also think this may speak - in some way - to my problem with sleeping...because I did want more about this "subject" when I went to sleep that night.
[MEntity]: The energy of this year is Emotionally-Centered, but it is also going to include strange, disturbing, and wonderful activations and explorations of the Instinctive Center. In the case of this dream, it appears that this was an exploration of the Emotional Part of your Instinctive Center.
[MEntity]: Your dream appears to have kept all of the markings of a Symbolic Dream, or those dreams that are common to the processing of the life through the Instinctive Center, whose language is purely symbolic, but this dream also straddled into the Astral Plane through the Emotional "doorway," if you will.
[MEntity]: When one remains in the Symbolic Level, the processing is relative to the Personality and the current lifetime; when one moves into the Astral Levels, the processing is on an Essence Level.
[MEntity]: The Symbolic Level is all about the Personality processing all of the various sub-personalities as they exist for that Personality. The Astral Levels are where Essence processes all of the Personalities of various lifetimes as they may be relevant to the current Personality.
[MEntity]: In the case of this dream, it appears that the process of this lifetime is symbolically very similar to the various literal lifetimes where heroic journeys moved across waters and to distant shores. The oceans that you travel in this lifetime, however, are your Emotions, and the shores are the people where your emotions wash up against, or crash against.
[MEntity]: Looking back at your dream, and comparing that to your interpreting your current life, you may see some rather beautiful insights gained as you see how your feelings are the media of your heroic journey, and your relationships as shores. The boat is you.
[MEntity]: The feelings you had in the dream in association with various interactions speak to your feelings in waking state regarding the various shores/people, and how you interact with them, feel about them, and how you perceive yourself/boat in the journey among them.
[MEntity]: In other words, exchange out the symbols of the dream with yourself as the boat, the shores as significant people, or groups of people, and your interaction with the waters as your means of navigating your feelings.
[MEntity]: Your processes of proving yourself, your exploration and awe of foreign and unfamiliar shores, your navigation of the boat in ways that, in retrospect, seem to transcend or bypass logic and practicality; the more familiar shores being met in stormy waters, but where you find your rest and nourishment, etc.
[MEntity]: The gifts of information and maps that were given to you that you may have forgotten, or dismissed.
[MEntity]: This dream seems to us to have been a way for your Essence to remind you (and for your Personality to note to Essence that it has realized) that everything in this life (and other lives) is worth it, that your experiences are always a part of a heroic and courageous journey that is meaningful in ways that are not always remembered, or noticed.
[MEntity]: This Personality does not want to wait until after the life to realize just how amazing this journey is.
[MEntity]: And just what each shore provides, from awe and inspiration, even if unreachable, to comfort and sleep, even if from an utterly familiar and redundant place.
[MEntity]: In some ways, this does speak to your issues of sleep, because it remotely speaks to your not being able to rest until you have reached that perfect and awesome shore, and maybe have proven that you have been there, or are headed there, when the truth is that there is value in all of these shores, and all parts of the journey are meaningful, no matter how many times you take it.
[MEntity]: This is a stretch, but there is something to that symbolism.
[Maureen]: Yes -- thank you so much
[MEntity]: We have looked at this dream through our own way of interpreting a dream, and this should not usurp your own understanding of your dream. This is your language within, and while there is some universality to subconscious and astral language, the individual must always consider her own meaning.
[MEntity]: Ours is a suggestion for interpretation.
