Last night I dreamt of my childhood home again. I was back in my old neighborhood the way it resembled before it had been completely built in. When we first moved in there were miles of sagebrush in every direction. We lived on a dead-end street. It felt safe and wild at the same time.
In my dream I was in the field of sagebrush above our street. It wasn’t full of sagebrush like it was in real life, but instead there were huge trenches dug into it and enormous mounds of dirt piled here and there. It looked like the perfect place for dirt biking, if one was so inclined.
My friends (unidentifiable) and I were walking along the paths that wound among the tops of the trenches, so we could see down into them.
It was night time, but still bright enough to see everything easily. There were a lot of (seemingly) teen-aged people milling about through the trenches. Suddenly, in a flash of light, a GIANT BIRD appeared in the trench directly below me.
It was beautiful, and I can honestly say I have never seen anything like it. The first thought that came to my mind was “Pheonix” although it didn’t look like any depictions of a Pheonix that I had ever seen. It was as big as an Emu with a long white neck, and a little plume of feathers that came out of the top of it’s head like a Quail. Each feather was a shade of yellow, orange or peach.
The bird’s body was also large and reminded me of that of an Emu/Ostrich and was also white with beautiful orange/yellow/peach/salmon colored feathers.
Once the bird appeared it just stood there, unmoving- as did I. I knew at once that it was something wise beyond my comprehension and that it had come from a higher dimension. Whether it had meant to or not, I could not tell, but I did get the impression that it could do so at will.
As the bird stood there, a boy wearing a Charlie Chaplain-esque outfit, complete with the black bowler hat, came over and grabbed the bird around the neck with one of his hands. He wasn’t squeezing, or necessarily harming the bird, but this action of him putting his hand on the bird distressed me greatly and I screamed at him to let go of the bird.
The boy asked me WHY he should do such a thing and I don’t remember what my answer was but I again begged him to let the bird go and to not hurt the bird or I would make him SORRY.
All of a sudden there was a burst of bright blue light that expanded in a perfect blue circle with a bright white/blue diamond shaped light in the middle, and the bird disappeared into the light. Looking into that light it was like I could see the depth of the cosmos. It was truly awe-inspiring.
I was relieved that the bird had made it out of the situation safely- and then I woke up.
Before I wrote this post today I searched for images of “higher-dimensional birds” and came up with these pictures from ancient Egypt of … you guessed it, the Pheonix. These birds look very much like the bird I saw in my dream, although I had never seen these pictures before today. The main difference between these birds and my bird is that my bird had head plumes that came off the front of it’s head and arched forward like a candy cane. Also, its coloring was obviously different.
I am not sure what to make of this dream, as usual. A couple of synchros surround it though. The first is that I pulled up Christopher Knowles’ site The Secret Sun this morning and there was a post titled “AstroGnostic: Enter the Pheonix.” He posted it yesterday, but I did not see or read it until this morning.
Another is that my office is completely empty today save myself and my assistant as the rest of the managerial team went to our other office in Pheonix, Arizona for the rest of the week (that one is slightly more lame).
** Update: DreamMoods.com says ”
To see a phoenix in your dream, symbolizes transformation, immortality and renewal. You are moving toward a new phase in your life. It may also mean that your past continues to haunt you.
This very much on par with what I have been working on lately. I have been working towards pushing myself towards transformation, to the next step in my life/abilities/reality/etc. I have also been working on accepting, recognizing, and letting go of things from my past that do, occasionally, haunt me.
