Dream Evaluation and Pop Tradition Correlations


I’ve talked about some dream experiences within the present collection of autobiographical articles and there have been some extra of those just lately, starting with a quick but extremely memorable one.  
I used to be in my automobile as all the time and unexpectedly there was the weird realization that I was within the again seat.  ‘How can I be right here,’ I believed.  ‘What occurred?’  I glanced to see who was driving my automobile and noticed the again of the driving force’s head was lined by a grey hood.  Then I awoke.  The that means appeared apparent sufficient.  In relation to all my hopes and expectations of life, ‘Michael’ is within the driver’s seat.  Michael is the commonest nickname used for my unseen ‘information‘/’guardian angel’/’greater self’ with whom I’ve a relationship in contrast to something I’ve ever discovered reported in any information supply.
I have been deciphering my current goals utilizing a dream dictionary {that a} buddy gave me final yr.  

Wednesday Evening/Thursday Morning (every week in the past)

Early Thursday, there was a brief dream of watching individuals getting out of a small boat that was on fireplace whereas stationed at a dock.  
The Illustrated Dream Dictionary entry about boats specifies:

See a ship and it symbolizes your life, so the opposite particulars needs to be interpreted accordingly.

The entry about fireplace presents the next:

FIRE  Hearth is a crucial component in goals, simply as it’s in actuality.  Hearth warns and purges and it may harm when you get too near it.  So it is a highly effective image indicating a interval of renewal, but additionally a certain quantity of painful reflection . . .

Following the quick picture of the boat, a totally new dream started that I’ve forgotten partially.  Myself and two different males had been taking part in some type of recreation, first involving what appeared like disguise and search.  Then I noticed one man was a younger model of film director Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999), maybe trying the best way he did on the time of “2001: A House Odyssey” as I keep in mind having learn The Making of Kubrick’s 2001 (1970) edited by Jerome Agel.  Within the dream, I used to be comfortable to see Stanley abruptly start grinding out a key for me utilizing a kind of machines for making alternative keys that you simply see at some shops.  I then awoke.

One thing I notice is that films could have meanings and current correlations past the narrative storylines.  I’ve beforehand talked about a found parallel between my life and the Stanley Kubrick film “2001 A House Odyssey.”


In relation to my noticing synchronicities involving the phrase Bell since accepting the phrase because the final a part of my pen title in 1995, I’ve an extra truth to share about “2001: A House Odyssey.”  I’ve discovered that the title of the music that the pc HAL 9000 sings within the film is “Daisy Bell”.  A 2011 article about this side of the film is “Little-known sci-fi truth: Why HAL 9000 sang ‘Daisy’ in 2001” by Don Kaye.  It seems that HAL 9000 wasn’t the primary laptop in truth or fiction to warble the music.


Synchronicity of the names ‘Michael’ and ‘Bell’ is one thing I’m certain to note when giving my consideration to names of characters, the solid and filmmakers of a selected film.  ‘HAL’ is the ‘Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic laptop’ within the fictional storyline.  Folks will also be ‘programmed’ by having varied assumed imperatives about what’s the helpful solution to work together with others.  


Thursday Evening/Friday Morning

On Friday earlier than daybreak, what started as a reasonably strange dream instantly offered what for me was a really uncommon expertise.  As I used to be leaving the room by way of the entrance door, glancing down I noticed myself bare.  There concurrently was a thought type.  I would not describe it as ‘clairaudient’ precisely because the voice sounded totally different from the few clairaudient experiences I’ve had up to now.  The sentence communicated was “Oh my God I am bare!” but the thought type wasn’t an expression of my response.  The expression was like a affirmation concerning the scenario noticed.  I keep in mind considering ‘I have to’ve neglect to placed on my garments.’  That was after I awakened and realized the expertise had been a dream.

my notes, I am reminded concerning the storyline of the dream previous to my leaving the room.  For a lot of of my youthful years I’d attend film screenings with my twin brother Mike, a film publicist.  In my dream Mike had screening tickets for a film about Jesus of Nazareth and to this I responded one thing like “I believe we all know what occurs in that” to precise that I did not wish to go to see the film with him.  Personally, I finished watching films and TV exhibits in early 1997. 

After going again to sleep, I had one other dream, yet one more typical of most of my goals.  The dream revisited some elements of my profession as a particular training workplace employee.  On this dream, a highschool particular training pupil occurred to be residing close to my residence and his younger pals had been upset as a result of some method of intervention was going down.  I noticed a instructor strolling towards the boy’s residence and acknowledged him as a instructor with whom I as soon as labored.  The dream appears so frequent to typical experiences of current years that particular evaluation appears pointless.  Generally the common ‘hodgepodge’ goals equivalent to this one may additionally embody ideas and issues about being a author and blogger.  The following night time (Friday night time/early Saturday) the goals additionally had been of the ‘hodgepodge’ kind and I did not make any notes.

What appears most blatant concerning the ‘seeing myself bare’ dream is that there’s a particular that means offered in The Illustrated Dream Dictionary (1996) by Russell Grant.  
Right here is the passage I discovered within the ebook —

NAKEDNESS Nakedness in a dream is sort of frequent.  Should you see your self bare then issues are about to enhance.  Chances are you’ll also have a stroke of cash luck. . . .

Some extent of interpretation would appear obligatory for therefore easy an announcement.  Non secular wealth is all the time extra essential than materials wealth.  A possible that means for seeing myself bare is that anybody else can be taught all of the essential particulars of my life within the present collection of autobiographical articles in addition to studying my case research ebook Testomony (1997).

As with goals, symbols and metaphors in films could categorical meanings aside from those meant or improvised by the human artist who originated an paintings.  I discussed in a earlier article about an anomalous expertise one morning in 1995 when my TV instantly got here on by itself and there was a scene from one among the outdated black and white “Topper” ghost films.  I recorded in a written journal entry for September 24 that one character mentioned “Now I do know why you had me put away within the hospital!”  A bag of oranges was distinguished within the scene.  The Illustrated Dream Dictionary presents this rationalization of oranges symbolism:

Sluggish however regular progress is the message when you see oranges rising or boxed for cargo.  Eat one or drink its juice and a short-but-oh-so-sweet love affair is on the horizon. 

Along with symbols, individuals’s names additionally normally have meanings ascribed to them.  If one needs to be much more analytical, there are anagrams inside names.  The Illustrated Dream Dictionary was written by Russell Grant and illustrated by Vicky Emptage.  One dreamlike film with a Hollywood setting that I recalled whereas writing this text is “Barton Fink.”  Trying on the listed names of characters, the solid and filmmakers, I found that actress Isabelle Townsend is seen within the last picture of the film.  
The well-known ‘sleeping prophet’ Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) beneath hypnosis would orate channeled readings that included clairvoyance about medical remedies.  His son and psychic researcher Hugh Lynn Cayce (1907-1982) wrote about Edgar’s readings about goals (greater than 600) in Enterprise Inward (1964).  The next are some excerpts from the readings about goals offered in Enterprise Inward.

The nice fact that should develop into obvious is the benefit with which the person could apply what could also be obtained from his personal unconscious self — the cosmic forces or common consciousness.  254-46

. . . to each regular physique with a creating thoughts, situations are sometimes offered by way of the unconscious forces throughout the sleeping state, whereby truths are given; visions are seen of issues to be warned or taken benefit of; situations proven during which can be introduced benefits to the physique — bodily, mentally, morally, spiritually and financially.  294-34

The goals when correlated with these symbols referring to the varied phases of the person, give that particular person a greater understanding of self, if accurately interpreted.  3744

This lesson needs to be gained: Life is motion of the thoughts.  Whereas thoughts is split into two totally different phases, their lively forces are one and the identical.  The bodily physique proves to be a hindrance to the lively drive of thoughts fairly than a assist, save because the thoughts could also be utilized within the bodily airplane to the help and support of different people.  294-70

As talked about in my case profile article about Edgar Cayce, the next studying can also be talked about in Enterprise Inward.  Hugh Lynn Cayce defined that the next was given on the finish of a studying decoding a dream.

[From text of channeled reading 3976-3 given on January 24, 1925]

1. EC: Have some terribly laborious instances in China to-day.  Within the Manchurian area, a flood and fireplace each.  Many peoples are passing into the Borderland, their entities taking their place as has been manifest by way of their surroundings within the earth airplane at current time.  There are these situations arising from this nice boredom within the consciousness of many that can convey the revolution within the minds of many peoples, and start that understanding of the aim of the Present of God to the World within the One made manifest within the flesh, and capable of convey the consciousness made manifest on this planet to the peoples.  Therefore many will likely be ready by way of this to put apart the bodily and once more manifest in a bodily earlier than males.

Saturday Evening/Sunday Morning

Previous to going to sleep for the night time, there was an inkling that I thought-about about ‘the place is that this all main’ in relation to my sudden upsurge in dream recall and evaluation — apparently a guided side of the connection with my information current within the ascended state of Oneness (or ‘God Drive’).  There did happen one other dream with what I think about to be a really uncommon side.

I started my day on Sunday at 6:00 am.  My previous goals had been once more of the ‘hodgepodge of each day life experiences’ kind and I notice I wasn’t in considering mode as has been noticeable throughout a few of my goals.  The memorable half is the top of the night time’s goals after discovering myself telling my brother Mike that I needed to do some purchasing.  One of many issues recalled is myself saying that I needed to get “pillows” — an merchandise not listed within the dream dictionary.  I might vacuumed them the day prior to this.  My brother quickly appeared to develop into uninterested in purchasing.  Then I discovered myself within the know-how part of a retailer.  I heard myself say that I needed to seek out an “end-of-life gadget” but this did not appear jarring or unusual on the time.  Now I am startled as I am actually not suicidal and would by no means think about such a factor though I am accepting of others making that alternative if there may be some main sickness or discomfort concerned.  It’s a topic I’ve thought of in current months as a consequence of will increase in suicide charge statistics.  My religious understanding is that it’s unwise to contemplate suicide as a result of it’s higher to surmount issues prior to creating the transition to the ascended state.  The Illustrated Dream Dictionary advises concerning the symbolic interpretation of the theme of suicide when present in a dream.

SUICIDE You want a change of scene or to loosen up extra.  Issues are clearly getting on prime of you.

My dream experiences are evidently one thing decided as doubtlessly providing religious steerage if the meanings are interpreted accurately.


Sunday Evening/Monday Morning

The preliminary dream was of frequent circumstances shortly forgotten; nonetheless, later as has occurred on different nights final week, a memorable dream transpired simply previous to my waking and starting the day.  This dream mirrored a few of my contemplations as an writer this winter.  I discovered about some type of ebook publishing undertaking the place a template was offered consisting of the work by another author.  The publishing course of made it obligatory for an writer to increase on that materials.  Then I acquired this huge ebook that started with a brief description of what I might deliberate on the very first web page as one among numerous comparable descriptions contributed to authors utilizing the template.  I observed that the title of the ebook was Michael.  Some glitches had been noticeable in my description evidently deriving from the automated system throughout importing.  Two sentences had been superimposed in a clean space of my entry.  This was repetitive and redundant.  Additionally, I might used an underline code for a pair phrases and the automated system unexpectedly made these phrases seem in purple ink.  I observed this had additionally occurred with a few of the different descriptions contributed by different writers.  Then I awoke.
This dream makes me recall my emotions of uncertainty in relation to the query of publishing another ebook throughout this time of Kindle and different business platforms that simplify the publishing course of.  Ever since publishing the Web model of Testomony in 1997, I’ve averted any commercialization of my writing and running a blog.

There have been a number of goals (or dream state experiences) from totally different durations in my life that had been pretty distinctive.  A few of these have been described in earlier articles.  Whereas dwelling in Pasadena in a beautiful house on East Orange Grove Blvd., there was one movie-like dream that had a hell-like setting.  It did not disturb me as one may count on and I based mostly a brief story on the expertise.  I do not recall the exact yr or the place I used to be working on the time.  It appeared bizarre to dream about one thing I did not take all that significantly though I used to be all the time desirous about metaphysical topics.  My hell dream could have been a guided expertise to encourage me to take my spirituality extra significantly.  I recall a childhood dream that ended with my realization that “God is right here (with me)!”  It was extra like a science fiction film twist than one thing involving any kind of precise religious perception.  Now I do know in another way and this is likely one of the most important motivations for sharing the main points of what I’ve discovered all through my lifelong path of religious discovery

Monday Evening/Tuesday Morning

On Tuesday morning there was one other dream  of the ‘hodgepodge’ kind about my former faculty job.  My interplay with younger individuals within the dream jogged my memory of the interim final yr throughout the lecturers’ strike when my task was being stationed within the faculty library with a bunch of scholars.  I discovered it very revealing, in notably concerning the challenges going through younger individuals with studying disabilities.  The video seen under was used to instruct the scholars about totally different musical devices and the top end result when individuals contribute their particular person skills in a bunch effort.  

November 2002 was after I started working in highschool particular training.  I used to be employed throughout the week after I was serving instead workplace employee at an elementary faculty.  Whereas on the elementary faculty, on one event it was obligatory for me to go exterior of the workplace.  That was the exact second when a choral group of scholars started to sing.  The lyrics had been: “Welcome from the youngsters of the world . . .”  I then knew that God was gifting me with a spot to be on this planet

Tuesday Evening/Wednesday Morning

I started questioning about how lengthy this present interlude of heightened dream recall would proceed.  The primary dream sequence of the night time was so negligible it was forgotten earlier than I may even make any notation.  
At 3:20 I awoke after I heard a selected Pop music taking part in in my thoughts in the identical method as a earlier incident with a special music.  The music was “That is Amore” that I in all probability heard after I was very younger.  I believed it was Frank Sinatra singing but possibly not.  This morning I noticed that each one the YouTube movies of the music characteristic Dean Martin and the lyrics had been discovered to incorporate ‘bells’ and ‘bella.’  Following that music, I started fascinated about the Howard Jones music “What Is Love Anyway?” and this additionally was shocking.
Later throughout the intermittent durations of sleep there have been two different songs that briefly got here into my thoughts as an alternative of any dream situation expertise.  The 2 well-known Pop songs had been additionally about love: “Infinite Love” and “Evergreen”.  Awake, I felt happy about this.
There have been three successive dream vignettes earlier than I awoke to start the day on Wednesday.  First, a dream started the place I used to be at my laptop when a younger man come into my room with out my having let him inside by way of the entrance door.  He was accompanied by an older man.  I keep in mind being oblivious to them whereas concentrating on my work.  Then I recalled that they had been there and requested them what help they wanted.  The younger man mentioned he wanted me to signal paperwork regarding an house within the complicated.  My response was to inform him that I wasn’t the supervisor and began to point out him the place he wanted to go.  The scene modified to my entrance door and several other extra strangers got here into my house.  An older man held out a letter for me of some form.  I could not discern any specific feelings on the person’s face whereas starting to marvel if this was some kind of registered essential letter.  A 3rd dream vignette adopted the place I used to be trying up one thing—presumably within the dream dictionary—and I noticed a single phrase on a web page:


That was after I awakened.
The Illustrated Dream Dictionary entry for ‘letter’ on this interplay would appear to be “information is on the best way to you from a distance.”  My New World Dictionary definition of ‘oppression’ is:

1.  an oppressing or being oppressed  2. a factor that oppresses  3. a sense of being weighed down, as with worries or issues; bodily or psychological misery

Wednesday Evening/Thursday Morning

On Wednesday night time I ate dinner and went to sleep sooner than standard and there was a hodgepodge dream that would solely be vaguely recalled after I awoke.  The dream concerned my attending some public night occasion.  Contained in the exhibition corridor, I discovered myself in the best way of a facility employees member who wanted to make use of the phone on the wall behind me.  A couple of moments later, everybody appeared to be asleep within the darkened room.  I started planning to go away and tried to recollect the place my residence was situated throughout this previous time in my life and the place was my parking area.  All of the sudden I used to be driving close to the airport and going too quick.  Then, as I used to be making an attempt to recall the place I used to be going and the place was my parking place, I noticed I used to be already in my bed room whereas nonetheless within the dream.  As I thought-about the place that was now, I awoke.  The clock indicated that it was nonetheless earlier than midnight on February 12.  As I questioned if this had been eventful sufficient to make a remark about, one thing occurred that has occurred a number of instances over the previous few years.  Certainly one of my palms was lifted a number of inches off the mattress after which dropped again down.  It was my unseen ‘information’/’guardian angel’/’greater self’ reminding me that I am by no means really alone.  Nonetheless, after I try to pose sure or no inquiries to this ‘I Am’ presence there may be seldom any response for sure or no though this coded communication can occur at instances after I’m engaged in my standard actions.  If I am driving and get a faucet on the leg indicating ‘no,’ I modify my route in case that is some method of warning.  On the event when my automobile was rear-ended when a canine was on the street, there in all probability wasn’t sufficient time for any warning from my information.

After going again to sleep there was additional obscure dreaming but the one half I can keep in mind was what occurred proper earlier than I awoke this morning.  I used to be driving in site visitors and needed to cease on the intersection as a result of college students had been crossing the road.
This looks like a becoming place to conclude this text.  The following article on this collection will resume my chronicling of the transformative yr of 1995 after I realized my life may by no means be the identical.
