I've had the idea for writing this thread for a couple of weeks now since the dream. At least I think I had the dream a couple of weeks ago. Surely not more than that. Sometimes I have the random dream like everyone else, but more often than not I go to "The Same Place" in my dreams, meaning the same metroploitan lanscsape, where different things happen. It's recognizable upon waking up as "the same place".

See:

Who Else Seems To Go To The Same Place Every Night In Their Dreams?
www.abovetopsecret.com...

The dream I shall relate in this thread may or may not have been in that "Same Place". I was outside only briefly at the beginning of the dream and didn't get to survey the surroundings much.
That's why I've created this thread specifically for this dream.

Some other reasons I've decided to create this thread:

1. The dream was unusually vivid for a dream that didn't seem to be that "Same Place".
2. I was able to turn lights on and off, something I usually can't do in my dreams.
3. I could read text in this dream. Usually I can't make out what anything written says in my dreams.
4. If this is a "real" place, perhaps someone else on ATS has been there, and I'd like to know what they know.

The Dream:

I was outside walking along a sidewalk in an area that seemed to be zoned for retail and warehousing. I entered a long, low, two or three story building that seemed from the outside to be a warehouse. I don't recall being with anyone on the outside of this building, but as I began to explore the interior, it was apparent that I was with someone. I believe it was a woman. It seems to me that we both had decided to explore the building. It was not apparent whether this was an abandoned warehouse or not. (Thinking back it semed to have an air of decay, disrepair or something. Kind of like some of the areas in the dream-place in my other thread.) I think I was on the second or third floor when I noticed she was with me. I don't recall ever being on the ground floor. We were looking down a very long "isle" which ran parallel to one of the exterior walls. There were warehouse type windows running down the lenght of this wall, and at the end there seemed to be a doorway which opened on a anteroom or some type of vestibule or stairwell. Perhaps it was a stairwell with a door on the other side leading to the rest of the floor we were on. That seems about right. In the stairwell or anteroom in addition to the door leading farther into the warehouse there was a firedoor leading to the outside on the righthand side. Pehaps to a gangway/walkway fire escape kind of structure. It also led to the roof. I remember this because at some point in the dream I became separated from the woman who had apparently gone back to this door to try and find a way out of he building. I remember she wanted me to go with her to the roof, but I had become absorbed with examining the rows of items in the building.

There were piles and piles of books. Some on shelves, many were simply piled up. Like a used book store. There were other things in addition to books. Before the woman and I became separated, I had picked up a small dark blue "vase". You might call it a miniature vase. In the vase there was some kind of dried flower or something sililar. I aked her what this little vase-like thing was and she told me something like "It's what they used to call a buffet in the old days".

Anyway, I think it was shortly after this that she left for the "roof". I didn't see her in the dream again. As a matter of fact, I don't really remember seeing her at all, just conversing with her.

So, I'm making my way farther down the isle towards the far end and find another door or archway leading into a room filled with various musical instruments. It reminds me of your typical music instrument store. There were keyboards, electric guitars, acoustic guitars, drum kits, etc. Apparently there were more electric guitars than acoustic. I decided to look around this room briefly, and saw a couple acoustic guitars mixed in with the others. In this dram-world guitars are apparently displayed laying on their sides instead of in the typical veritical position. Anyway, I picked up one of the guitars. It was a highly polished laquered black acoustic. I tried playing a few chords. I picked up another and noticed there were other people in this room lookong at things to. The second guitar I picked up said on the tag that it was a "Renaissance guitar" from the Grumman company. There is to my knowlede no company that makes guitars called Grumman. I did however check out Renaissance style guitars on the web the next day and found the one in my dream resembled the general style of Renaissance guitars, except that it was full size.

Unfortunately I don't recall any titles of any of the books I saw in this place. I could read them though which is unusual for me in dreams, and while wandering around in this warehouse I turned on lights which I usually can't do in dreams either. Usually when I flip the switch or pull the cord nothing happens. In this dream the lights were the single bulb type you might find in a basement with a dangling string to pull.

That's pretty much all I can remember. Except I think near the end of the dream I went through the door in the "stairwell" leading to the outside/roof/fire escape to look for the woman who was with me.

I should keep a dream journal beside my bed. Pehaps if I had immediately written this up upon waking certain other details would have been remembered.

So what do you think? Random dream? Akashic Records and Antique Shop?

What caught my attention in your title was "Antique Shop". After reading your dream, which is very interesting I find it very similar to the dreams I have almost every night. I was in the antique business for 35 years, have been away from it for at least 7 years. I even sold all my antiques in my house and went modern. But not in my dreams - I go to my store every night, chat with different people, examine different objects - I see a lot of old friends and customers in my dreams. The other thing I wanted to note was the intense colors and emotions I feel. Can you recall colors or emotions in your dreams? Do you have a lot of similar dreams? I always wanted to own a womens clothing store and sometimes in my dreams we are looking at brightly colored garmets, even trying them on. Share your sleeping dreams, I love hearing about them.

You can check out this other thread of mine for a general recap of the dreams I have:

Who Else Seems To Go To The Same Place Every Night In Their Dreams?
www.abovetopsecret.com...

The only colors that I can recall fully are the colors of the guitar and the tiny "vase": shiny black lacquer guitar and a deep midnight blue for the vase.

I don't recall any particular emotional response to anything while in the dream. I'd have to think about that.

Getting back to the emotions while in the dream question. While I don't remember feeling anything in particular while in the dream, I decided to take a look at pictures of warehouses on Google. I downloaded the photos from the first two pages of results that resonated with me. I "feel" something like I felt while in the dream with these in particular. While they're not all photos of exactly the same subject matter, I get a vague "floaty" sense of "THAT'S IT!" from these pics, while I get nothing from others that are of your typical modern warehouse. Bear in mind that none of these are "it!"; I just get a feeling of dreaminess or something that resonates with these.

Remove the barrels. Add a row of windows on the righthand wall. Make a doorway at the far end of the room. Through the farthest window at the end of the wall on the right you would be able to see that the building is L-shaped and that there is a walkway or fire escape running on the outside of the building. Put up bookcases and add tables piled with books and assorted antiquey items and that's pretty close.

The thing that stands out to me the most was my ability within the dream to actually have the light come on when I flipped the switch or pulled the cord. And my ability to actually read what the words were on book covers and labels. Too bad the only bit of text I remember is from the guitar displays, instead of the countless books. And the way the objects seemed truly "there" in three dimensions - especially the depth of the colors. The way the scene was lit. Like dusk. Typically whenever I'm in that "dream-place" where I typically go (see the referenced thread somewhere above) the light seems to be just around dusk, turning to night. The light semed kind of like that in this dream. And the walking down the sidewalk part too.

I have dreamed of an antique warehouse sort of place. There never seems to be any order to which items are arranged. There are just all sorts of random stuff on shelves and I wander around fascinated by everything I see. I remember meeting another woman there, who seemed really old and I always got the feeling she owned the place. I always forget to ask questions while I am there. Well mostly when I go lucid, I know I am dreaming, but I can't think of anything creative to do with my dream, for some reason. I just go along with whatever I happen to already be dreaming. I dream of this place sometimes, and I just look at stuff. I never think to ask what the things represent or ask what I can do. Sometimes I figure I can read in dreams too, but I never remember what I have read afterwards, only that I figured that I could.

Your dream is kind of spooking me because I had a fantastic antique dream last year that literally looked like it was in a warehouse like the pictures above that you posted. I am an avid antique collector and dealer so this was an amazing dream for me. As a psychic/medium I travel to my akashic records hall frequently in my dreams and it looks like a Roman/Greek temple- its not a modern warehose- but its possible that your guides brought your "case book" to your "antique store".

I find the fact that you could switch on a lamp interesting and also that you could read text - I can't recall ever reading text in a dream.

That's one thing that truly made me wonder about this particular dream. I've had lots of dreams where I've tried turning on lights. No go. Same with reading things. I've read before that it's usually difficult to read or turn on lights in dreams.

Things did seem to piled up in no particular order. The "music shop" portion of the place seems to be the exception.
As for the woman in my dream: I don't think she was old, although I don't remember actually seeing her. And I don't think she owned the place since we were both exploring it together.

As for the building itself... well, none of the photos I posted seem an exact representation, but they all seem to have some common theme I can't quite put into words. Take this one for example:



The building itself looked nothing like this from the outside, but somehow the color palette, the houses in the background, the dusk-like lighting... I don't know. Something about the atmosphere in this one rings true, even though the actual building does not.

And this one:



The lighting is pretty much dead on. Except in this dream, as well as in the other ones where I seem to be in the same "city" it seems that it's damp. Like it rained earlier. Like that feeling you get when you go out on a spring evening. At dusk. Kind of misty. Not really misty though. More damp than misty. It's hard to put my finger on it.

And then there's this one that I elaborated on earlier:



It doesn't go at all with the other two. You know what I mean? But if you could imagine a long narrow kind of space like this with the same kind of slightly claustrophobic feel to it, kind of turning here and there, piles of stuff everywhere, shelves and tables full of books and things. And windows. warehouse kind of windows that tilt open to the outside at the top. I'll try to find a photo...

Only took a couple minutes to find some examples:

These two have the lighting dead on. It's like being there.



This is a good example of the type of windows that ran the length of the place, but the lighting is off, they're a little to0 modern and the only thing you could see outside was more of the warehouse going off to the right, with a catwalk running the length of the building, stairs and maybe some kind of courtyard or something:

Item:

Since starting this thread I've had occasion to do some web browsing in relation to other threads on ATS, other personal interests and things basically completely unrelated to this thread or this dream. And during my surfing and browsing I've repeatedly been confronted with online images at various webpages of buildings eerily similar to this one. Not the same building, but buildings that look almost like it, photographed from the same angle with the same "magic time" kind of lighting, like at dusk. It's almost as if I'm supposed to be drawn to a building similar to this one. For whatever reason.



What the deuce!?

This posters vision is eerily similar to my dream:

This Specific Vision Taunts Me

I'm going for a run to clear the head, but I just wanted to type up a vision that continually taunts me, and it feels like, the vision itself, is clawing at the back of my 'soul'. I post to see if anyone has experienced this before..

I cannot describe it other then true beauty. That it is all that I desire, yet what gets me is that it doesn't seem impossible to bring to life, because of the immense beauty. For instance, I see a wall covered in mesmerizing colors and patterns, and I know it is held inside a castle, I just cannot see the outside of the castle, I can only see the inside of it.

There is a massive vase on a smooth, intricate, chiseled wooden 'stand', covered in even more awe inspiring colors and patterns. Separate from this room I see another room. Tongues of controllable flame line the doorway, not dark flames, but very bright, very clear, and upon entrance you feel a different air. Just like a remote muted every voice in your head, so they are gone. So your eyes can lay sight to the splendid delight that lines the walls, shelves upon shelves of old tomes from the years back of lost history, every piece written in one of those tomes. They are not books of this day and age, but books that have been given the highest regard.

Everything is formed out of compassion it feels like, out of.. being aware of what they've done. It's getting away from the vision, but it seems the entire vision has been crafted, from every tiny detail and atom, by full awareness, full compassion, not one ounce of hate, fear, ignorance, just pure.. life.

It wouldn't bother me to post if it weren't scratching at the back of me like this entire.. vision.. wants to get out, wants to jump through licks of flame, to breeze through mountain tops of snow, unrelentlessly flowing through anything that blocks it, until it reaches its destination.

Is someone able to, willing to, inform me of what this is? It's draining my energy completely, I'm starting to feel regret.. And I'm only 20 years old, not 80.

I saw Thor in my dream last night

This is really striking a chord with me. I had a dream too that involved, I kinda feel silly saying it, but I feel like it was Thor. I have always had a feeling of connection with Norse mythology. I have not researched it extensively, just kinda like I feel connected somehow. I have been told by a past life reader that I was part of a Viking community, and a dream in later life seemed to confirm it in my mind. Having said that, here is the dream I had that yours reminded me of.

It was one of those dreams that continues through the night (or seems to) even to the point that I would wake up and then dream again on the same thing when I fell back to sleep.

I was in a large warehouse type building and lots of people were gathered as if they were waiting for something grand. It was some kind of ceremonial procession of these VERY tall people coming in and piecing together some kind of musical instrument. They were of all colors/nationalities. They looked human, but huge. It was in this procession that I first saw this male being. As each being placed their part into the machine, the music got more and more rich and beautiful. I watched with awe and excitement that pervaded my soul! The beings seemed pleased to see that. When it was finished, the music was so amazing, powerful, and beautiful! I felt it in my spirit/soul.

This would take so long to write out, I'll just condense it.

This male being was so beautiful, not only in appearance (tall, large, rugged yet somehow feminine also in grace and gentleness of features) but I sensed beauty in his spirit also. It was not a sexual attraction. I also could feel his affection towards me. I felt happy and comfortable when I was with him. It felt normal, not at all overwhelming. He gave me a formula or recipe of something that I could use if I wanted him and the other beings to come back. I don't remember what he told me except cinnamon and vanilla. The beings were on earth to protect humans from some danger, though they never told us what exactly. They were training us to be able to fight with them against the attack. He later on told me that the gods are on the silver level, in the dream he meant in a building, but I felt this to be symbolic of something also. When I went to the silver level in an elevator, he was there with the other “gods.” He looked very happy to see me. Then I woke up. I laid in bed thinking about it and I heard a male voice say my name. I thought it was my husband, but he was sleeping.

He and the others were training us to be able to stand a chance against the attack that was coming.

The warehouse area I dreamed of had doorways on the ground floor in various areas, with a walkway above overlooking the ground floor. Sort of like this picture

And it was warm toned wood kinda like this

And it was really big, like this

Not quite the same as the warehouse in my dream, Mine seemed to only have 2 levels and no windows.

Yours sounds fascinating. I can read in my dreams sometimes too. I believe we visit real places in our dreams sometimes.

My vision of Akashic records goes like this. It is a job nobody wants to do but some of us are good at sorting out files and putting them in correct order.

The building is like a small office with a desk, a comfy computer chair. The lighting is very nice soft white which brings out the writing much better. There is a typical metal filing cabinet but the file itself rolls out for miles and miles and miles.

This file is one I have been working on all my life and when I take a break from it and come back to work the file stretches out to the exact spot I stopped at the time before.

There is always an overseer 'angel' with me. They do not touch the paper records though. I have asked questions of this angel and was told that some time ago God created automatic file production on a paper that never loses the inking. What happens it that now and then the files get put in but not in correct timing order and someone has to put them in order (like 1,2,3&4). When I make a mistake during sorting a bell goes off and the overseer comes over to point out what I did that wasn't correct.

There is usually a red check mark where I made the mistake and once I have corrected it there comes on a green check mark following the red one. Nothing is ever thrown out or erased a black line through the incorrect information with green corrected information following it.

I have been told if I get too many bells going off in a night - the big guy upstairs pays a visit. That was sort of scary to think that God would take personal time to visit me on the job to correct me. One time God did show up after a long and harrowing night of bell after bell. But it was nothing like what I had imagined would happen. We talked a little bit about how the job was going - did I like it - did I want to continue doing it. I answered in the affirmative and so God ended the visit with "Well keep up the good work and I (meaning God) expect to see you back here working for me". God's only admonition was 'Remember this is very important work' .

The paper is very special paper - you can tell just looking at it! It is almost clear or opalescent. It is written on only one side. There are time and date stamps at the beginning and ending of every entry.

No, you are not allowed to retain memory of specific information on person's file you are working on. You can retain generic information but who wants to save five hairs fell out of person X today - person X ate salad, etc.

The really juicy stuff you forget as soon as you deal with the filed incorrectly portion of it and move on to the next entry.

It is interesting but boring and as far as I know there is not benefit to it. Although it makes me aware that somewhere someone else is working on my file.

I once asked how long is this file and I was shown a vision of the file drawer stretched out past several planets - I gulped and was about to ask when the Angel said 'God can do anything'.

I have never gotten anywhere close to the current timeline for the person's file I have been working on - in other words there seems to be no beginning and no ending of the file.

One does pick up certain bits of knowledge but it is stowed away deep in my mind as to be similar to a gut feeling that something or someone will do some this or that. The information is on such a vast level that picking out smaller portions is impossible or impracticable because you hear everything said, hear everything thought, see everything seen and so on. And all of this in dream state.

I should have added that your dream of an antique store and the items stored there sounds more like a museum of ideas that ought not be forgotten and detailed by the item on hand. So in a way it is a form of Akashic records just not about a person's life.

It lends credence to the idea of there is nothing new under the sun - all things have been invented before and can be remembered when the need arises.

For my part the Akashic records are a detailed in written format of every instance of everything in a person's life from first birth onward - which is to say that there are very real distinct lines between incarnations. Although there are detailed records of every decision about the incarnation and whom has agreed to do what in the current life so that the person fulfills the destination of this life.

In part that is the work of someone like me to oversee that the conditions agreed to and set out in rebirth are followed. Sort of "All the world is but a stage and we are the players." It is a life contract.

In short if it is decided that the person is to be a painter of beautiful artwork - the person agrees to it and everyone who is supposed to aid the person in becoming that artist agrees to their participation in that person's life. This lends credence to the idea of choice in destiny because the person agreed to it before being born in the current incarnation.

A former brother or sister may need to experience being the object of the person's affections - in order to attain their own perfection and so the choice is agreed to beforehand.
