Ahhhh --- dream sequence
Apart from the specific-locations dreams (different dream type) the most intriguing dream-sequence I've experienced was the 'lizard dreams', which
I've posted several times on ATS
The sequence commenced with a photo imprinted on the screen of my mind when I woke up, one ordinary day. The photo was pretty much identical to the
old Polaroid Instamatic type, with the white border all around. It was of a lizard, sitting on a low garden wall which existed, out there in the
yard. I could see the lizard very clearly, noted the creamy colour of its neck, its big shiny scales, etc.
But although it was a photo, the lizard was alive in that photo, as could be seen by subtle movement of its eyes
I forgot all about it as the day went on. Then, in the afternoon, a visitor called. We were chatting normally and I went to make coffee, still
chatting away. Then, behind the visitor, I caught a glimpse of a lizard on the garden wall. It was pretty big, about one and half to two feet from
snout ot end of tail.
We'd lived there for several years. Never had lizards before. Built-up area with all yards fully fenced to a height of 5 or 6 feet, front and back.
Most people had a pet. We had a dog
At the sight of my face when I saw the lizard, my visitor turned around and saw it too. Immediately, I said we'd have to capture it and get it to
safety before the dog got it. The visitor (male) wasn't too keen on going near it. In the end, we phoned the wildlife reserve a few miles away and
they sent a ranger around to catch it. But he couldn't. So he said if I saw it again, to get it into a large box and take it up to the reserve if I
Wasn't until he left that I remembered the lizard-dream. Coincidence, I said. The 'photo' lizard and the real lizard were identical really, even
the way they were up on the garden wall. Only difference was -- they were mirror image, i.e., the 'photo' lizard had been facing west, whereas the
real lizard faced east
Well, with my son's help, we did coax that big lizard into a box and took it to the wildlife reserve. And I thought that was that.
Then the sequence kicked off. Over a period of several weeks, I had numerous lizard dreams. And usually within a day or two, we'd see the
dream-lizard, but in real life. After the first time, and because I'd had precognitive dreams before, I knew it was important to tell others about
the details of the dream before it happened in real life. Otherwise people think you're making it all up. And I feel that it's good for people to
see for themselves that precognitive dreams happen. So I tell them. Mostly, they don't want you to tell them, I've found
So, lots of lizard dreams, followed by the appearance of the lizard in reality. Catch lizards. Take them up to the fauna reserve. We got to know
the rangers quite well after a few lizard-saving trips.
Then the penultimate lizard-dream. Bad one. In the dream, I passed between the garage and the house, and there on a tree trunk (which actually did
exist at that spot in real life) were two 'adolescent lizards'. One of them was fine. The other only had half a body, i.e., it was just half a
lizard. It had a head and chest and front legs and half a trunk, but there it ended. No lower trunk or back legs or tail. And you could see where
it was cut in half .. could see bloody insides of the lizard. However, it didn't see to be in pain and every now and then it's tongue came out and
it moved a bit along the trunk of the tree
Told my family and others whom I saw regularly about it. They said 'Yuk' and asked me not to tell them any more of my dreams, because this was
Week went by and no cut in half lizard. Good. I didn't want it to come true. I hated having to go between the garage and the house in case I saw
half a lizard
Then, ten days after the dream and just when I thought it wasn't going to happen and that it was safe to relax -- it happened.
I wasn't there and didn't influence it. I came home from shopping after dark and called to the children to please come and help me carry everything
inside. They did and for a while I didn't notice anything. Then, once we were inside and I was organizing the pantry, I asked the chidlren what was
wrong, because they weren't the same as usual
They said 'nothing'
Five minutes later, I asked again. Because something was wrong. They insisted it was 'nothing'
Finally I demanded to know what was wrong. And only then would they tell me. They'd been sunbaking near the pool, they said, when our dog began
barking. They asked him to stop several times but he wouldn't . And he was fussing around in the gardenias. Usually he was an obedient little dog,
so this was out of character. Finally the kids got up to investigate. And they found the lower half of a lizard.
For some reason they decided without much discussion that I shouldn't learn of it. So, it seems pretty clear that they did not want to confirm the
cut in half lizard dream. And even though they have the weakest stomachs in the world, they scooped up the half lizard on a spade and put it in the
rubbish bin. In other words, they tried to hide it. So that's the extent to which they were prepared to go, rather than have it acknowledged that
another precognitive dream had come true. This surprised me and from it and the reactions of others, I've been forced to the conclusion that maybe
people generally would rather precognitive dreams did not exist. I think they're scared of precognition, of the implications
So anyway, they told me all this, looking embarrassed and upset (for the lizard). And this is why they'd been so quiet earlier. They added that
they'd looked for the front half of the lizard, but hadn't been able to find it
I told them the lizard would have gone straight to heaven and wouldn't be in pain any more ... added that it was probably all so quick that it would
have died almost immediately. They weren't convinced
Should add that during all this, I'd completely forgotten about my dream of the cut in half lizard. My conclusions re: people's reactions to
confirmed-precognition only came to me later on
Now that I knew what was wrong with the kids and having done my best to comfort them, I continued racing around, putting the groceries away, starting
the evening meal etc. And then I went outside to collect or hang up the washing. Can't remember which. Doesn't matter. But it was at that point
that a little movement caught my eye. I looked down and simultaneously saw a line of ants and the front half of a lizard
Feeling instant pity for the poor thing and desperate to save it from the ants, I ran to get a container and then gathered handsful of nearby plants.
The lizard was clearly still alive. It was next to a ventilation pipe that ran from the ground up through the roof.
I coaxed it into a container. Then I put the plants under water and arranged them around and half over the lizard, so that it would have something to
drink and in the hope it might make the ants go away
The insides of the lizard were visible, red and angry. But not dripping blood as you might imagine. And it was able to move around and its tongue
licked in and out, so it was still fairly alert
I'd read that a scientist engaged in the study of regeneration of limbs etc. in frogs -- had produced a one ohm battery for the purpose. Apparently
certain frogs are able to reverse their polarity and this enables them to regrow severed limbs. The one ohm battery apparently asisted with this.
Didn't know what a one ohm battery even looked like. All I had were ordinary household batteries in various appliances. But I grabbed some
batteries out of a portable stereo and stuck them under the container holding the lizard in the hope a weak power might leak from them and through
the container, to help the lizard. Then I 'willed' it to live for a few minutes.
When I went back inside the hosue, I reconsidered and wondered if the lizard might be better off if it died, as it would be difficult to regenerate
two severed limbs, plus a severed half-body and tail.
Next morning when I looked, the lizard was dead
There was only one lizard left to come, and that was the second adolescent lizard I'd seen in my dream, near the one which had died
I was 'over' the whole lizard dream thing by then. The cut in half one, plus the circumstances, had pretty much finished us all off. We didn't
want any more of it. But it wasn't up to us of course. And within a few days, the second adolescent lizard appeared and we took it up to the fauna
reserve. By then, we'd told them the story of why we were taking lizards up there so often. They couldn't understand how these lizards were
turning up in such a long-established area. There had been several different kinds of lizards, most of them quite large. No explanation
Then that was it. No more lizard dreams and no more lizards
The cut in half lizard, I later discovered, had been within inches (two or three inches, I measured it ) or mirror-mage of it's dream forerunner on
the trunk of the tree. In other words, if I'd put a string-line between the spot on the tree and the pipe where the real cut in half lizard was when
I found it, the two positions were almost exactly opposite, with only the house between them. The dream lizard faced east. The real life cut in half
lizard was facing west when I spotted it
What can it mean ? There were over seven dream lizards who later manifested in the form of identical real lizards. And I told several people each
time between the dream and the reality. In most instances, those people were witness to the appearance of the real-life lizards
Thank you, lizards ... it was instructional
