Wow. I don’t think there are many in the world that are not completely riveted and distressed by the devastation that has taken place in Japan in the last couple of days. (Way to take our mind of Libya for a minute, eh?). It’s heart breaking, and it feels as if the world is catapulting into a strange new era, doesn’t it?
I dream of tsunamis and earthquakes quite often. I would be lying if I said that I feel as if I have predicted them, because I only just very recently began making any kind of correlation between what happens within the microcosm of my being in relation to the macrocosm that is the world at large.
I had a very vivid dream of a earthquake/tsunami a little less than a month ago. I did not initially post it here, but did post it elsewhere.
This was my dream as previously posted on 2.15.11:
I had (yet another) Tsunami dream last night. I have had many, but this is the first one that I was able to successfully escape from. I was on what I perceived to be an island. It was tropical, but cooler, and I was surrounded by people indigenous to the area. I got the feeling that I was there working on some kind of film- a documentary, maybe?
Anyway, we were all gathered in a small, shallow cove when we felt the earthquake hit. I knew immediately what would follow, and began urging people to higher ground. At first people just looked at me and stayed put. Then another shock hit and they started listening. I remember looking out to sea and seeing the first huge set of waves. I began gesturing wildly for people to run uphill, and people actually listened this time. I was astonished at how well they were following my directions, in fact.
Everyone began rushing uphill and I kept urging them higher and higher while I ran into a school on the end of the cove to make sure that all of the children and teachers were moving to higher ground as well. Everyone made it out in time, but I was still in the school as the waves were coming towards it- now level with the school which was pretty high above the water, usually.
Of course after the fact I could analyze this dream to death. I was on an island that seemed tropical, but was cool in temperature… Japan in the winter, anyone? Surrounded my indigenous people- in my dream the people were just sort of ambiguously NOT the same ethnicity as myself, but I couldn’t really tell what they were (I am vanilla- a blend of white European, mostly). There were video cameras, we were filming something- this could relate to the live coverage of the earthquake and tsunami that has since been aired ad nauseum. The school and everyone making it out OK- here in the Pacific NW they were evacuating people on the coast to elementary schools up on higher ground… and nobody was killed in the U.S. from the tsunami, I don’t think… (maybe one person who should not have been walking on the beach during a tsunami alert!).
Anyway, there are so many facts that make sense in the dream that correlate to what happened in real life- but not any good specifics. I had no idea exactly where, or WHEN, or, well, anything.
Also, in the original dream I ended up in the water after the school- in a sort of harbor with a bunch of debris, and I then wrestled a vicious and enormous Anaconda and was saved by Brad Pitt who was high on mushrooms at the time. SO WHERE DOES THAT STUFF FIT IN? Obviously it was a DREAM- but still, I clearly pay a lot of attention to my dreams (thus this blog full of them) but I still have no idea what they mean half of the time.
I don’t know if I am subconsciously experiencing an awakening of sorts that is personal or if I am predicting events. I remember my dreams quite well and it is not unusual for me to find myself in situations in my life that I have LITERALLY dreamed of previously, down to the smallest detail. Yet, these dreams are always completely mundane and so is the reality- so what is the point of that?
I think perhaps the point is that we have probably all always had these sorts of abilities- but we have, over the last couple thousand years or so, forgotten that we had them and DEFINITELY forgot how to use them. Not that anyone has ever been able to pinpoint disasters all too well (even Edgar Cayce has been wrong on the dates before)- but perhaps these abilities at one time were of more use, and perhaps they will be in the future.
Who is to say? I wish there was a guide book for this stuff. Anyone out there have one? No? Didn’t think so. : )
