I know I already posted this in my previous thread, but mods please forgive me for putting it here as another thread. This dream was that powerful to
me, and I again need to know what others think about it.
I had another vivid dream the night before last, the kind where you wake up for a little bit, then fall back to sleep and take up right where you left
off in the dream. I haven't had a string of vivid dreams like this in years, since just before my surgeries in 2001. Its kind of freaking me out
because the last time this happened, I had my first surgery the evening of Sept. 10, 2001, and woke up the next day to 9/11, and felt like I was
connected somehow to what was happening.
This latest dream takes place in an old, old, cathedral, maybe even the Vatican. A woman I apparently know and I are being led through the place by
what I assume is an archeologist or scientist of some sort (older, portly guy with glasses and beard, looks and talks academic) down into a lower
level, way down, where this guy is telling me he's found a door to a vault or something. He can't get it open, though, but he seems to think I can.
He leads me to the door, and I start running my left hand over what appears to be some kind of crumbly gray plaster. It turns out to be really thick
dust, or something like that, because as I rub at it, it starts to fall away, revealing colored symbols that remind me of Egyptian hieroglyphics. As
the design is revealed, I trace a portion of it with my right index finger, not knowing why I'm doing it, but a portion of the door slides inward and
down, and we gain access to a vault of ancient artifacts. There are all kinds of small tools and implements and instruments and dishes and glasses and
stuff on shelves to the right front, and the archeologist guy stops in wonder to check it out. I continue on into the vault, and further along to the
right rear of the room I find capes and scepters and staffs, made of or covered in gold and rich red fabric, stuff that would belong to royalty. At
the very back of the room, on a shelf mid-wall, there are several of what I can only describe as some kind of hat/cap/crown, curved over the top and
close fitting to the head and brow, looking like they would come down to just above the eyes if worn. I have an overwhelming urge to put on one that
looks like its made of a single huge polished ruby ringed with gold. I'm not scared, but have a strong feeling of impending danger as I grasp the
crown, or whatever it is, in both hands and put it over the top of my head. It fits perfectly, and I immediately feel like I was meant to wear it. The
woman, who has been waiting near the door, suddenly turns and says, "someone's coming!" The archeologist guy freaks out and screams "RUN!",
grabbing the girl and scambling out the door of the vault. I'm in the back of the room, and start moving toward the front. The other two are well
ahead of me, and they turn a corner up to the right as I reach the door. A high-pitched angry howling sound can be heard coming closer, and into the
corridor ahead from the left comes some kind of she vampire/zombie thing closely followed by several more of her kind. They hesitate briefly, looking
after the other two, then come for me. I'm still wearing the crown and feeling no fear, and as two of these creatures launch themselves at me from
just yards away, I decide I don't want to be there anymore and.....disappear, kind of melting into the floor as the creatures try to land on top of
The rest of the dream is spent , after I rematerialize outside, or whatever, getting back into the cathedral and trying to find the woman and rescue
her from the vampire/zombie creatures. I don't think the archeologist guy is still there, or he got caught by the creatures, as I don't seem to be
looking for him, only the woman.
I wake up before I get back out with her, but have a feeling that we make it.
Strange dreams, indeed.
