What is God or Mother Nature trying to tell me?_A Dream.

Postby Huathe » 13 Feb 2011, 18:56

All,

After my wife left this morning I went back to sleep and this dream came over me.

I remember walking along a trail on the side of a long ridge, it was summertime and all was green. I was accompanied by my wife, Joy. My dad, Jack. My sister, Becky, and who I think was Dee, a pretty 50ish woman who works at my place of employment, GE, was with us.

I remember looking down into the shallow valley and noticing some nice white pines, I remember thinking of ENTS and Bob Leverett. However I noticed some white pines that were scattered among the other green trees were dead or dying. It reminded me of the mass hemlock deaths so common here in the Southern Appalachians.

Hiking down into the valley we reach a small clearing where we reach some golf carts with small trailers attached to them. We climbed aboard one and I drove up a small road ascending a hill. Upon reaching the top we reach a beautiful homestead on a hilltop where an older couple lived. They are friendly but I had never met them before.

I go into one of the small, but very cozy buildings and find it decorated in a very old-fashoned style. I don't think it even had electric power. I sat down and looked out the window at the beautiful vivid green countryside. I could feel the presence of nature. The very energy of it. I could feel the breeze and smell the air. I started weeping. Blinking my eyes I opened them to see the same place, the same scene but in the autumn. The leaves were a brilliant red, orange and yellow. The air cool and crisp. The elderly couple was sitting in their chairs outside. I was crying good by now.

It was at this time that my phone rang and woke me up. After answering the phone I realized my eyes were a bit wet and I layed back down wondering what the dream could possibly mean, if anything. It was quite vivid and is the third one within a year culminating in " My Memorial Shrine ". I think in the latter part of the dream I may have subliminally realized that in real life it was winter and the dream was my yearning for spring. But winter has gotten lately where it does not bother me so much so I don't know.

What could God or Mother Nature be trying to tell me? The dream certainly had nature at it's very focus.

Could my involvement with druidry have something to do with these vivid dreams? I had one besides this one two weeks ago concerning " I know who you are " also about nature. Then the ultra vivid one I had on " My Memorial Shrine " which was just before I found the druidic path when I was seeking a more spiritual path concerning nature, more than Christianity or ENTS alone could do. This dream, like the last one was short and simple. Any yes, I have had other dreams too but they are normal ones with no apparent significance or feelings. Ones like this one REALLY stand out.

Opinions anyone?

I added three nice pictures which may help you visualize the dream.

I don't know James but that last picture is absolutely stunning. Beautiful trees. Could it be that you are developing a deeper connection to nature and the Ancestors thus seeing an ageing couple going through the seasons of life as we all do if we live long enough? Wisdom.Reconnecting to the All.
After I have been running sometimes I get a heightened sense of perception of the trees, the air, the river and birdsong and I just feel like rolling on the grass to be absorbed into the landscape, weird I know. But I often feel like lying down on the bank or supermarket floor when there is a big queue, just to see what people would do as well.

Bartholomew!

The old couple gave me the same impression. That they may represent the " aging " of the seasons and of life itself. Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter as well as Maiden, Mother and Crone. They may represent my greater attaining of knowledge with age. Of course I am not certain of this but it makes a lot of sense.

My druidry practices has no doubt deepened my connections to the natural world and this may well be what is affecting my dreams.

I have to agree with the consensus so far, I'm no great dream interpreter, but I do think your dream is definitely connected to your deepened relationship with nature and the representation of the old couple as perhaps that this relationship will only deepen with age and more knowledge gained.

I definitely think the crying shows that as well, because if you were unaffected by the images in the dream then I'd think the dream should be interpreted on a different course, but the fact that you were shows a heightened sense of the relationship with nature, perhaps.

So yeah, I agree. :)

well, i believe in parallel universes so i'd be wary of treating any element of a dream this vivid and sequential as purely symbolic.

i think you're probably just at the beginning stages and should just wait and let the communication and insight improve till you understand it without having to delve for it.

i have dreams as vivid, while under a sort of light sleep, that feel much more like bilocation than just dreaming, but with time slips and shifts that are part of the process of getting closer to the beings fetching me. with me they are usually fairies, either the winged diminutives (i used to dream with them when i was a small child) or the somewhat scarier but very dignified and courteous gnome-like type, who put me through magical manipulataions. one of these asked my permission to 'will' me, and when i said, yes, i felt levitated by his will and sent flying in a slow circle a few feet above the ground, very comfortably, among trees around a sort of sports arena. i felt him try to tell me telepathically where we were, but i couldn't yet receive the answer. but it was very strange and afterwards, when he released me and my natural fear surfaced, he told me he would not fetch me out of my body again until i said i was ready. it was beautiful but strange. i'm starting to feel brave enough to go on.

Wyeuro,

I agree. I think these are the beginning stages and that they are more to come. Hopefully my insight into them will improve over time.
