Temporal Spirals Bring Strong Dreams
Is anyone else having very strong dreams this week? Mine are super potent. They're waking me up, washing over me as I take my morning shower, lingering like one of Ched's perfumes through the day.
I'm even writing them down because I'm so astonished by their intensity. Also these aren't my usual dreams of looking for a cab, or trying to get the anonymous dream people out of my house. No. These dreams contain brand new themes.
My guess is that the source of this dream activity is the fact that old friends are resurfacing in positive and healing ways, helping me remember that the past, present and future are segments of a beautiful spiral of continuity, not a choppy linear stretch of disconnections. It really helps me to be reminded!
One of my oldest friends, with whom I've just recently reconnected, continually offers pieces of the ancient past by reminding me of things I haven't thought about since I was a young child. Thank you, D! You cannot imagine how helpful your memories are!
Another old friend was in town this week, a George Clooney doppelganger with brains, intuition, and a tender heart to go along with his looks. And he's not too young for me. Sigh. Fortunately or unfortunately, we know too much about each other to be romantic. What we have is great - a comfortable loving connection. Nevertheless, he is a babe.
The George Clooney doppelganger brought me into the present moment by explaining what about me has changed since last we saw each other a couple of years ago. His insights were really helpful!
A third old friend has shown me, just by going through something in her own life, that love is a great dissolver of old messiness between people. Her life's adventures of late remind me that life is short, and point me in the direction of the future.
Past, present and future are all coming together this week via these old friends. Hey! Am I Scrooge, working my way towards some kind of rebirth? No wonder my dream life is cranked up to eleven! Wow.
