So I had a dream couple of weeks ago with some very interesting imagery and after thinking on it for a day or so after, had me come to a very profound
conclusion about reality.
But since I like to get other peoples input on important thoughts I have, I thought I'd post it here to hear what my fellow ATS:ers have to say about
it. So I am not going to post what my conclusion was (just yet) after pondering the dream. I'll just describe the dream as best as i can on here in
the hopes that someone will find it interesting enough to decipher.
I'm really interested in what if any of the imagery you can relate to well anything really, known symbolism, shamanic ideas, science, intuitive dream
interpretation well what have you. Or simply what it makes you relate to in general. I'm not so interested in being told how to interpret dreams or
how the dream relates to myself and my every day situation. ( I am quite aware of my own dreaming styles and how my mind assimilates what is on my
mind into dream scenarios
Why this dream is significant is that it follows a pattern of unsual dreams that I have had that always seem to come with some sort of out of the
ordinary understanding. And they follow the pattern of;
1. It is out of the ordinary in relation to how I usually dream
2. I was mid-dream taken out of the (dream movie) to become an observer and cleary was being shown something. (Now who was showing me is not so
relevant to me, I really hold fast to no particular idea of how these things work, my higher mind, my ordinary brain, crazy brain chemistry, angels,
demons, gods or aliens - it really doesn't matter to me how or why.) What is more important is how is what I was shown relevant or important for
understanding reality and life.
So with out further a do here's how the dream unfolded. ( I am usually very much aware that I am dreaming when I do and this was no different. )
I am walking through an old forest, it reminds me of forest of old northern European fairy tales. Really tall pine trees, moss on the ground, stone
rubble and quite damp. Apart from that nothing special about the forest.
So I am walking through this forest, when I come to a white house, which was more like something you would find in a sci-fi movie rather than an
ancient fairytale sort of story. (I reflected over the contradiction). It was a rounded house, entirely white and made out of some sort of plastic and
metallic material. I enter the door and one of my friends are inside. We have a very ordinary conversation. (But it seemed very scripted to me) The
events that took place inside the house where very ordinary conversation and sequential very much like a movie. (I reflected over this also since most
of my dreams are fairly abstract and this was not).
So this carries on for some time, just ordinary conversation and moving to different rooms, some silly disagreements and reconciliations but nothing
that made sense to me as being particularly important. But the dream had me being very curious as it was so different to how i usually dream. It was
just so plain and simplistic in style. However with one oddity which was that during our conversation I was aware that we were traveling in time. But
we never ended up going anywhere.
So as our movie style conversation comes to an end and I'm about to leave the house I am suddenly removed out of the point of view of main character
and instead see the forest and the house from an outside perspective, as if i am now watching the movie I was in. I have a wide view of both the
forest and the house and as I am watching out of no where appears a giant alligator. It just stands there,in profile, with one big hand on the roof of
the house. Then I see a person walking up to the house and i realize I am observing my self at the beginning of the original dream walking through the
forest to see my friend at the house. I see myself enter the house, and am very much aware that the scenario that happens inside is an exact re-run of
what I had just been dreaming moments before (then as the main character).
As soon as I am made aware of this fact. The giant alligator picks up the house, that is now more like a pod shape, and throws it into the air and
into space where it disappears. Just as soon as it is thrown out there it return and lands in the exact same spot that it was only a split second
before. The alligator places it's hand on the house again.
The alligator never looks at me or does anything but stand there in profile. But something about how the dream felt made me believe this was the
alligator communicating with me, trying to show me something. And in my mind the word (Crocodile of time) just occurs and then the understanding that
we are now looking at seconds before I came to the house (that is me and the alligator are back at the beginning of the dream) However this time I
see myself exiting the house and walk away as the scenario that was inside the house has now come to an end). I immediately understood that the house
(and the scenario inside it) moved forward in time however always came back to moments before it had left. Then I'm pulled out of the dream quite
suddenly and wide awake.
I had a very odd surreal feeling all that day as you would after all that.
So that was the dream as best as i can describe it for now. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have and really hope some of you will find it
engaging enough to interpret.
So everybody what say you? Anything there?
(Adding that my interpretation is that I was amongst other more personal things shown something about how time works in general. When I came to my
conclusion after thinking about it I was like eureka!!) I promise I will tell what I got from it later ...
