Thanks Tony - I think with this one, I need to keep letting it process. Sometimes I think I have a sort of psychological blind spot in that I don't 'get' something until I'm 'ready' for it. It'll arrive - and it will probably try to arrive in a different format, I suspect, until I understand the significance more fully.....bit by bit.

Thanks Tony - but to be fair to my friend I *asked* him for his take on this and as it wasn't a dream but something that happened during medidation, I think it was slightly different. My friend's response was to bring to the table what occurred to him after taking a couple of days to ponder the image/happening. He by no means suggested it as an 'answer'. His contribution/reflection on the happening and images within it were useful to add to my own experience of it and thoughts about what it might mean.

The truth is, I still don't know what it 'means' but that it was significant - possibly only to me but that's the real point. An opportunity to see through a door/gate/portal into a deeper/other consciousness or dimension and to meet *someone* there  but the full implications are yet to arrive for me. What I do still clearly re-experience is that I was being 'shown' something - or rather someone - behind that door.

Beyond that, I have no idea. Perhaps it was an image of 'God' but then in a real sense we all 'are' God - spirit is one, not divided, even if it might keep it's sense of identity whilst being united. Who knows!?! And yes, I agree: the point is about knowing God rather than believing - this is one I too have been talking about for a while - and hoping to encourage people to explore. Belief tends to lead to rules and rules tend to bind people. The root of the word 'religion' may well come from 'religare - to bind' ........although it may not, I conceed.

A knowledgeable friend has suggested a link with Kabbalah - the profiled head of a man representing God. One side out of view because we humans are not capable of seeing it. The dog - symbol of fidelity - showing all creatures are capable of acceptance and also of giving fidelity.
The image challenges our concepts of God - a young man with glasses........
I think this also ties in with Raphael as 'The Healing of God' thereby being interchangeable.

God with specs........so tempting to use that famous catchphrase.....

I have no idea - it seemed to be a message of something; a glimpse of a reality I'm unaware of.........

Gateways and doorways are big: a few years ago, whilst meditating, I heard a voice say 'The Gateway is open'. Subsequent experience has led me to believe that that gateway is in me. One of my favourite, spiritual, thin places has a Church on it; I have not gone into the Church very often because it's the place that is significant but a year ago I went inside again and as I turned to leave, I looked up and over the chancel arch are the words, 'This is none but the house of God; this is the gateway to heaven'. I laughed out loud.

Of course, the quote comes from Genesis where Jacob wrestles with an angel.

That passage has been following me around recently. Perhaps the man I saw is an angel. Or perhaps not.

Uh oh :o ::) - just realised as I typed that: he's holding a dog!! Tobit!!

My personal angel - the one I call to...............yep! Raphael!! I wonder........wouldn't that be cool?!

Hi Tony
This clearly follows on from recent dreams, although it wasn't a dream in the sense that I wasn't asleep. I was relaxing/meditating (find it hard to distinguish states these days - suffice it that I was in a state of stilling the conscious mind) when suddenly, in the shadows of my mind's images, a door opened with great power - with the sense and sound of a pressure-sealed door. In the open door stood a tall, slim, young man with dark hair and black rimmed glasses, he was standing side on (I don't think he could see me but I could recognise him if we met) and holding a small, pale dog. The view through the door was bright and light.
The experience was so powerful that my conscious mind kicked in and I came back to this reality/dimension.

Any thoughts?

*hugs* Christine. What a survivor you are! I don't have words that are adequate for your pain but can stand in solidarity with you.

Thanks Tony! Yes, it feel as though it was about integration in some way, you're spot on. It probably signals an unsettling sense while the 'hens' all sort themselves out and re-establish the pecking order........!  :) ::)

Dream Interpretation / White hen
« on: September 22, 2011, 05:45:58 PM »
I had just shut my hens into their pen for the evening and was standing in my living room looking out at the garden when I saw a white hen standing beside the pen on her own and looking anxious to be in the pen with the others. I went into the garden and opened the pen and she went in. As I walked back to the house, a thought briefly crossed my mind as to whether she'd be ok with the others - one new hen introduced on her own - but I knew it would be ok to leave them to sort themselves out and she would settle in ok.

(In this thought, I know I was reflecting my knowledge of hens as it's always best to introduce them to each other in larger numbers - but this was my reflection, rather than her reality; she wanted to be in the pen with the others).

Christine, I hope you don't mind me posting on your thread - I was drawn to it tonight!

The Colour Purple! The most costly and beautiful fabric in ancient times. That woman seems to be telling you 'you are worth it' (oh the cliche of the L'Oreal adverts!) but you weren't ready to believe it and took the option of being unattractive. Also, Purple and the higher self - 2nd chakra (3rd eye) being purple and connection to the divine..........maybe the divine is inviting you to relationship and not the one of guilt and dogma......

My tuppence halfpenny.......may have no relevance at all x

Ah, so the new cable may not be simply an invention of my fear?! Thanks - I'll go and have a look at the link!!

I don't think there's any chance I'm going to overtake, you, Tony  ;D

Wow! Have you come across 'Star Pilgrim' by Simon Small by any chance? Well worth a read if you haven't!!

Wow what an amazing dream! Tony will come up with some amazing insight, I'm sure.  8)

The thing that jumps out to me, is that your child's eyes speak of promise and magic and beauty. The rainbow was what appeared in the sky in the Noah's flood story and it was the sign that everything would be ok- a promise that the dreadful time of the flood was over.  Perhaps your child self knows something you need to remember........something precious, something promising.

Oh that is a sad dream and it's clearly upset you as it would have done me! You're not going mad, I'm sure. For me it speaks of two elements in your life - one that demands all your attention and one you accidentally neglect. It could be parts of your or issues in your life and your mind is showing you in this powerful dream, so it's one to listen to.

Tony will come and share his wisdom soon but in the meantime, take care x

Hi Tony,
I had another experience a couple of nights ago that feels akin to this one! For a while, I tried to grasp what it was that made this dream so different and then I realised; it was the realism! This wasn't one of those dreams where the location is 'my house but not my house' nor 'it was me but didn't look like me' etc. This was accurate to the smallest detail! I experienced all of my senses during this dream, too - it was as though I had transported myself to my own physical reality whilst asleep.

I entered the living room, my cat was on the sofa, the patio door was slightly ajar and it was a bright sunny day outside - the birds were singing and my garden was alive as in waking life. However, my television was doing something odd: it was switched on but there was no picture - the screen was full of bright, white light that fizzed and moved. I went round the back of the tv to see what the cause was and as I did, I felt the breeze on me from the open patio door. As I looked at the set, I could see that the cable that links the set to the aerial socket was missing. I felt anxious; I was worried that someone had come in through the patio door and stolen it.

 That's when the dream changed slightly - I had to figure this out a little later by replaying the dream.
I wondered whether the supersoaker had been stolen, too (I keep this near the patio door in waking life to discourage a bully of a cat who comes into my garden I don't know why this would be important to me, except that is kept in the same location). As I looked down to see whether it was there, instead of seeing it like everything else in the dream, I needed to visualise it and this made it smaller than real size and I was aware that I was creating it in my head. Then I looked beside the tv and found a new cable - this does not exist in reality, so I had to create that in the dream. I plugged the cable in and the set went back to working normally.

Having rerun this dream, it seems that as soon as I became anxious, I changed the dream for myself, in order to stop feeling scared. It seems to be saying more clearly what I experienced in the previous dream but in a different way.

What are your thoughts on it?

Many thanks!

Christine, I hope you don't mind me eavesdropping on your dream - it is an amazing and moving dream and a powerful interpretation  which has resonnated with me in terms of some dreams where my mother has appeared and I've wondered what that was about because of the largely negative affects of her parenting during my younger years - but Tony's words have got me pondering about making more of her appearances when she does turn up!

Thanks both!!
