So I had another dream that stuck in my head the other night … if you can really call it a dream. I was meditating before bed and I finally managed to get back to my meadow. Let me do a little explanation first.
When I meditate, my ‘happy’ place is a lush green meadow that sits next to a stream surrounded by a dense forest. There is a large flat rock in the middle- it’s a lovely place. Anyway- for quite a while now I haven’t been able to get to this visualization when I meditate and it’s frustrated me to no end. I’d stopped trying to be perfectly frank, but the other night, I thought that I’d give it a shot. I put on my thunderstorm sounds to dull the parking lot outside of my apartment and began my deep breathing.
It took me a good while to find the clearing again, but once I was there, it was different than it had been. Not in a bad way, but greener, like going from Kelly green to a Jade green and it was a little overgrown. I was so happy to be there and I could feel myself relaxing for having accomplished this feat, then I saw someone else there. I don’t know who I was seeing, but it was a man for all intents and purposes was a yellowish light- picture the aliens in Cocoon, but yellowish and glowy.
Obviously I was a little perturbed to find an invader, but I was also kind of happy for no reason, so I welcomed the man in. For a little while, it was like we were doing a dual meditation with energy flowing between the two of us through the hands like a circle. This was kind of cool and my tummy felt tingly, but then I lost the image and grudgingly came back to reality, like I was being dragged out of the relaxing place between consciously knowing that you are asleep and when you are happily unaware that you are dreaming.
Once I forced my arms and legs to move, I went to sleep, but I was seeing that scene the entire next day. Any thoughts from the brain trust as to what the interpretation of this dream should be? I secretly think that it had to do with the egg and cheese biscuit I’d eaten that day, but who knows. Analyse away!
