I just had a horrible nightmare. I want to clarify that this is not intended to be a prediction, nor do I believe it to be any sort of premonition. I
just don’t really have anywhere else to post this or anyone to tell about it, so I am availing myself of this forum’s existence just to get it out
of my system. (Though with that said, anyone’s insights or interpretations are still welcome.) I hope that’s alright.
I found myself sitting back to back with my mother in a high, snowy cliff. We were trying to get to what looked in my mind like a radio telescope,
somewhere east of us. The cliff we were on formed an exceedingly narrow ledge, and if either of us moved, it felt as though we might fall to our
deaths. As I sat there, the word “Shasta” came into my mind, so that might have been where we were (Mt. Shasta) though I was uncertain of that in
the dream. All I knew was that we needed to go somewhat east to find the radio telescope. Somehow I also knew that if we continued going east out of
the state, we would find a large crater from a long ago impact.
We tried to carefully get up, but as we did, we lost our balance, and fell off the cliff. I somehow survived, but my mother died on impact. I can’t
express how horrific this was. It felt so real.
I was crying my eyes out and just in total shock, grief, and denial in the dream. I was running
around, asking these ancient looking, traditionally dressed people for help. (This part of the dream is fuzzy.)
I then somehow found myself back where we used to live years ago, and there was a small kitten on a wooden porch. As I watched, a large, adult cat
approached the kitten and tried to eat it. I tried to save the kitten, but it transformed into a baby dragon, and I became afraid of it. The larger
cat used some sort golden dragon pendant which it wore around its neck to reach out and strangle the dragon.
Then I found myself in a shop, and there was an ancient looking man wearing the same golden dragon pendant behind the counter. My mother was alive
again somehow, and I was asking him what kind of sauce I should buy for a surprise dinner I was going to make for her.
Then, with equal suddenness, I became aware that she was actually dead. I woke up then, horrified and still grief stricken from the dream. This was
one of those dreams that feels so real, and so intensely emotional, that it might as well have really happened. I won’t be able to talk to her today
until she’s out of work, so I am needless to say going to be worried sick about her all day now. Upon waking I immediately went into the other room
where some of her things are, and actually started crying because the grief felt so real. I’ve since calmed down and told myself that this was just
a dream. I’ve had many similar dreams in the past and nothing has ever happened.
The only odd thing about this dream is that it affected me so strongly that I spent a few minutes looking up impact craters and radio telescopes near
Mt. Shasta, and there actually is a radio telescope east of Mt. Shasta (Hat Creek Radio Observatory,) and a suspected
impact crater further
east, in Nevada (Black Rock desert.) The crater doesn’t look like the one in the dream, though, nor does the radio telescope.
Anyway, I just needed to process this dream and get it out of my system. It affected me very powerfully, and I won’t feel right until I can talk to
my mom this evening. Thanks for listening/reading.
