I listen to the drum and slowly slide into Dream Space. The first thing I see is an old peasant woman dressed in filthy rags. She is bent over from the weight of the load on her back. She cannot see beyond her feet and the muddy ground right in front of her. Everything is gray. There is no color. The old woman looks exhausted. To her, this Earth is an oppressive place with nothing to offer but pain and harshness. She is not able to see herself as anything but a poor overworked and powerless peasant.
The woman fades. Then images of modern engineering flash by my eyes; rivers straightened and dammed, oil wells, superhighways and strip mines. Every image is a form of dominating and controlling the Earth. I see that engineers can be quite powerful, but they make the mistake of viewing our Earth as inert dirt, water and rocks to be manipulated and controlled. The engineer’s view of the Earth is as limited as the peasant woman’s.
The dream scene shifts; I am now up high, looking down on our Earth. I see all of Europe covered in a dark gray cloud, Big winds blow as the drum beats and the gray begins to clear away. Light breaks through, starting in the Mediterranean and spreading north across Europe. Great Earth Mother Cybele is with me, watching it all. Or is she directing it?
All of Europe is lit up now. The light spreads across England, Wales and Scotland. Ireland lights up, and a trail of light moves across the Atlantic Ocean, then arches across North America until it reaches the Rocky Mountains where I live. The light is somehow clearing away thousands of years of illusion and confusion.
Suddenly I feel a pull in my body; a new connection to my ancestors in the old world Is created. It runs from the “body” of Scotland to my human body. A huge surge of energy moves through me as this connection to healers / empaths / oracles / wise women in the ancient world is restored.
Days after this dream, I begin to realize just how deeply I have been touched and transformed by my dream vision of the spreading light. It ultimately becomes a defining part of my life and my work.
Reconnecting with the power of my dreams has been a crucial part of my personal healing. I learned how to explore my dreams and my life was transformed.
My conscious journeys into dream space have given me a much broader view of my world and my life. I learned to face my fears and embrace my inner wisdom. I also reconnected with the divine feminine through dreams. And I began to understand what my heart craves.
Dreaming in Daylight reconnected me to the yearnings of my Soul in a deep and wonderful way. Dream led me home to my Self and my joy – so much joy! I would love to help you do the same.
Humans are actually born dreamers. We begin dreaming in our mother’s womb and never stop.
Since the dawn of human civilization, people have journeyed into dream space seeking wisdom and guidance for themselves and their tribe. All over the world, indigenous tribes developed dream methods. Various forms of dream journeying have been in use all over the world for 40,000+ years. Many of our ancestors were dreaming shaman. The word ‘shaman’ actually means ‘one who sees in the dark.’
There are tools and techniques that will help you access and remember dreams more easily. There are also ways to enter a conscious dream state and gain insight during the day. I call it Dreaming in Daylight. I can teach you how.
Dreaming in Daylight sessions can be done remotely by phone. Or, if you live in Colorado, you can explore with me in person. The cost is $110 for a 60-75 minute session.
No experience is needed. I will guide you.
P.S. I also offer Dream Events for groups of all sizes. If interested, please contact me to discuss.
I am dreaming back my sisters
Whisper-worn footfalls on the Temple steps
Heavy-breasted cauldron keepers
Gentle-handed womb sounders
Come home sisters, come home.
