Merry Meet and Happy Sunday, Family, Friends, Followers and Lurkers!
The Reiki I'm studying is being taught by a woman who is a Shaman. She is one of the most interesting people I've ever met and in addition to teaching Traditional Usui Reiki, she also adds some of her own Shamanic training as well.
I have always been intrigued by Shamanism and so I picked up a book on Shamanic Reiki that I'm enjoying very much. It speaks a lot about Shamanic Journeying and connections made through dreams. Last night, I had the strangest dream!
I dreamt I was to pick up a friend's grandparents and bring them to Thanksgiving dinner. Now, I can't be certain, but I doubt that my friend's grandparents are still living. When I arrived at their home, I met a lovely elderly couple who were sitting side by side on their sofa. We chatted a few minutes and then they excused themselves to go into the bedroom to get ready to leave. As I stood waiting, I noticed that the house was very dusty. I could see the dust particles reflected in the sunlight coming in through the window. I didn't find this at all strange. Considering their age, I thought that dusting was probably not on the top of their list of things to do. They seemed to be taking a very long time and so I decided to see what was keeping them. Just as I was going to pass through the first archway between the rooms, I looked down and noticed that there were cobwebs that spanned from one end of the archway to the other. Then I noticed something else....the cobwebs were...unbroken. I stood there staring at them for what seemed like an eternity, trying to figure out how this could be possible. Did they confine themselves to certain rooms, I wondered? Then I noticed that the entrances to ALL the rooms had cobwebs and all were intact. I stepped carefully through the first set of cobwebs as I made my way to the room where I saw the elderly couple enter, only to find the room was empty!
I was obviously unnerved and confused, but not really frightened. As I made my way back through the house, I could hear the Rolling Stone's "Start Me Up" playing loudly from somewhere. I was enjoying the music, when I noticed my Mother was there (my mother crossed in 2001). There were other people there as well. Some whom I know and others that I didn't. I tried to explain the situation to them, but they all seemed to be preoccupied with other things such as returning a chair that was purchased as a Christmas gift, making sure "so and so" had a ride from the airport. It was just friggin' surreal, as most dreams are. Then I looked down and there was my Autumn! Again, she looked absolutely beautiful. As I picked her up, cradling her in my arms I was struck with a bolt of stunning clarity! I turned to my Mom and said, "I understand now! We're between the Worlds!"
Why I dreamt of my friend's grandparents, I haven't a clue, I've never met his grandparents. Hell, I've never met him! Still, I wrote to ask if he could provide me with a photo of his grandparents. I'm sure this will confirm his worse suspicions of my being utterly mad! That said, if I receive the photo and it even remotely resembles the people in my dream, be prepared! A major freak out on my part will follow shortly thereafter!
I believe I've at least learned one of the mysteries of the After Life! They aren't listening to harps! I'm a little surprised by Rolling Stones however. I would have guessed it would have been the Grateful Dead!
