Dream Journaling : July 20 2011

20 Jul

Thought it’d be fun to journal on some my dreams lately. Maybe this will help spur me to habituate a dream journal again like I used to do on the regular. A Golden Worm in My Tooth Dream There’s a pain in my tooth and I go to look at it in the mirror to […]

Dream #9: Dreamsigns & The Hilarity of How Dreams Mock Us

13 Jul

I’ve noticed before how my intentions with my own dreams often strike back in clever ways. For instance, when I was readily working with Calea Zacatechichi, it’s powers alluded me, even mocked me. I would have dreams about taking dream herbs instead of having lucid dreams or crazy vivid dreams! Ha! Oh Calea Z… Anyhow […]

Lots of people have their personal nightmare; you know, the one that re-occurs overs the years, the one that horrifies them to the core, even if sometimes it doesn’t seem very scary when talking about it. Mine is something most people are familiar with: the 1970’s horror film, The Exorcist. When I was 10 years […]

11 Jul

False awakenings are one of those gifts from the dream gods. Ever so strange, even eerie, and somewhat rare in the grand scheme of dreaming – although I think everybody has one at one point or another. A couple years ago, in an attempt to induce a lucid dream, I had a series of repeated […]

10 Jul

Having a dream where you are simultaneous you but also someone else is such a strange yet common occurrence. Here is a short dream I had where I was someone else not just once but twice, in the same dream. The first person I barely knew, he was  someone who helped spearhead some events I […]

Dream #5: Flying Vampires, Locusts, Violence & Biblical Imagery

9 Jul

This is another dream from the vaults, the experience of which has always stood out in my mind. Only 1 person has ever read this dream – he told me his Mom did dream interpretation, so I sent him this dream, to which he was sheepishly responded it was really long and maybe another time […]

Dream #4: A Very Symbolic Dream of Fighting & Reconciliation

8 Jul

It’s rare that I have a dream whose meaning is so easily and obviously symbolic to what’s going on in my life in such blunt terms. This is one of the most literal dreams of that sort that I’ve had.  This dream is about problems my girlfriend (at the time) and I were having in […]

Dream #2: Dream Archetypes & Sexual Dreams

6 Jul

There is a woman who has appeared in my dreams for many, many years. A little while back, I realized she ceased to represent the person who she appears to be and had become a kind of archetype in my brain; a woman that represents some sort of ideal woman, a highly sexualized archetype, a […]

Dream #1: Childhood Dreams or “I’ll Poke Your Eye Out”

5 Jul

  One of the earliest dreams I ever had was an experience that scared me because for the longest time I never realized it was a dream. I reckon I was 4 or 5 years old at the time. Nearly 25 years later, I can still remember the man in this dream who threatened me. […]

Dream Journaling Through Life, Marriage, and Divorce

10 Aug

Dark Days Ahead by Perry McKenna

  Few readers of this blog know this, but I am going through a divorce right now. In fact, I am 3 months separated. It would suffice to say this is a pretty terrible period of my life.  The upheaval this has caused in my day to day living is one reason why my work […]

Dream Report : bad dreams, choppy dreams…

8 Nov

untitled by photo extremist

My dreams have been choppy lately, and my dream journal is in desperate need of attention. The two are probably related.   I had a really weird nightmarish dream the other night – demon children chasing me, weird symbolism and whatnot. I am sure this is related to some real life struggles. I see my […]

Aliens, Demons, and Sleep Paralysis : What a Way to Wake Up!

13 Oct

i want to be the absence of things. by Pixie Cosmina, on Flickr

    I’m in bed, lying on my side. I can see myself in the mirror, but I cannot move. My body feels like absolute dead weight. I struggle to move at all. I move my hands and arms around; I can feel it happening, but am puzzled because they are completely invisible, 100%. I […]
