Good Morning ATS..!
I posted the following in a thread with ATS member Ptenjakin, and I realised that perhaps there was justification for a full thread on the nature of
dreams, recurring dreams, and the significant archetypal characters/ scenarios we come across in our nightly travels.
My experience of dreaming has been quite profound, since early childhood, and I tend to take a lot of comfort, knowledge and wisdom from the dreams I
have. Quite often, there seems to be a prophetic element to them; more about that later... For now, here's a list of the key recurring elements in
my dream life:
= Trying to explain to others 'what is really going on'. Often a frustrating feeling is associated with these dream elements. Often find myself -
either individually or as part of a small group - trying to discourage people from materialism / trusting the PTB.
= working alone or as part of an underground movement - seeking to overthrow the devilish PTB that seem to have 'taken over' the outside world. It
feels like we are working according to a divine masterplan, and that we are on the side of 'righteousness'
= pretty straightforward, in that these elements relate to what feels like an ongoing guerilla warfare scenario - spanning the globe. Quite often, as
part and parcel of the ongoing conflict, I find myself being hunted by the military (in helicopters, jeeps, ground patrols etc).
4. Biblical imagery / prophecy
= Very clear, semi-lucid or lucid dreams wherein I'm present during the scenes described in prophetic Biblical books such as Daniel, Isaiah and
Revelations. Examples include the burning blue mountain being cast into the sea; the sea which is as calm as glass; the sounding of the angelic
trumpets (a horrendous, terrifying noise by the way, and nothing like a real trumpet - that was intended as a metaphor in my opinion)
5. Satanic and Angelic archetypes, the 'War in Heaven'
= Again, no ambiguity about this. The archetypal characters often introduce themselves. The angels are less concerned about being known for who they
are, and can appear dispassionate in carrying out their duties (though there is always a positive aura). Conversely, the devils try to induce fear by
giving their names, trying to generate doubts and self-criticism.
6. Experiences of Heaven and Hell
= Once again - pretty straightforward. Images and experiences, 'plotted' scenarios where the dream characters appear to follow a script.
In 'hellish' dreams, once 've been made to feel you're an equal to the ones around you, there's an inevitable twist wherein the demon characters
trick you into committing a 'sinful' action. Regardless of the actual significance of what that action is (usually a form of anything self-indulgent
or self-aggrandising) they then attempt to cause exponentially increasing torment - it often arises through frustration with aspects of the
The 'heavenly' dreams are a luxury, and a strong source of hope. There is a calm sense of peaceful fulfilment. Nothing is left undone; everything in
one's destiny has been achieved in the earthly realms. Friends are present, and the environment is beautiful. There is a phenomenal sense of clarity
and optimism regarding the future.
7. Personal development
These dreams are often highly symbolic, and can seem particularly odd at first glance/first experience. I often find that while I am aware that I'm
dreaming on some level, that I can't quite pull my psyche into a fully lucid state. I've started to put this down to the influence of my
subconscious/ astral beings, restricting my lucidity in order to allow the teaching elements of the dream to 'play out' without conscious
interference from me. I'll relay some specific examples soon, but in general they draw my attention to (for example) actions I should take, actions
I should avoid, and character traits - both positive and negative. These dreams inspire me to continue in a quest of personal development, and help
to convince me that I'm not going completely mad in waking life...!
That nicely summarises the main types of dream that I experience. More to follow, including specific examples and discussion of the nature of dreams
