Effin Weird-Ass Dreams

March 25, 2010 · 5 comments

Well, since I really haven’t gotten shite done tonight, I may as well blog again about something a bit more interesting:

Have you been having strange dreams of late, dear reader?  Or maybe just a bit of trouble sleeping?

I have.  And I’ve spoken to a handful of people in the past few days who’ve experienced one or both of these things.  What do you think it is?  The moon tonight is waxing gibbous – it’s not quite full – so I can’t really blame it on Diana.  Though maybe I (we) can smell her.

Saturday was the vernal equinox – day and night of approximately equal length – so I think I might go ahead and blame it on that.  Spring is here.  The days will continue to get longer until the summer solstice (June 21st) at which point we’ll start leaning farther away from the sun again.

But why a spoon, cousin?

This is undoubtedly the time when our hindbrains begin to awaken – time to hunt and rut and in general enjoy all that the warmer months have to offer.  So why are my dreams not happy ones of intense and passionate sex on top of a mountain with muscular goth chicks in fishnets, stilettos and leather?  Why have they been on the anxious sinister-unknown-pursuing-me kind?  Does my hindbrain remember predators?  Does it not realize I’m an apex carnivore?  I’m a f*cking Scorpio, born in the year of the Dragon, currently living it up in the year of the effin Tiger for cryin’ out loud.  And my current totem is the dragon, so how come I’m not crunching longbones for their marrow in my dreams, dear reader?  Hell, I’ve just about been doing exactly that in real life:  crushing the bones to get at the marrow.

I’m wondering if Avia Venefica and/or Robert Phoenix might have something to offer on this front.

I just wish I could remember my recent dreams in more detail.  What’s been up with yours, dear reader?  Similar, or am I way off base here?

This is an awesome statement:

Been a little weird here, too. Just plotless and surreal. One morning the entire dream was a ladies’ razor in a large paper bag. That was it.

I think it’s the wind. I don’t know about where you are, but around here it has been windy almost constantly since November, which is weird for here, makes the people weird; weird, weird, weird.

Just as crazy as your dreams i had a dream that a chicken transformed into a dove and then a duck….and then when i went to follow it ran into a trail of bugs like spiders,scorpions, centipedes and other creepy crawlers…all in rows in sets of two one behind the other…just weird all around lol.

I think we are leaking.

Whether we view dreams as belches from subconscious gaslands of the psyche or consider them chemical/energetic impulse biproducts of an overproductive brain…dreams…especially dark ones are signs of leakage.

–Consider cream coming to the top after a dubius bubble, bubble, toil and trouble.

In my case…

If I am repressing/obsessing/stressing: Dark dreams surface to the top of my awareness.

Likewise, if I am subjecting/stuffing my body with substandard crap: Dark dreams ooze from me as my essence works overtime to secrete the toxins.

In the end, we OWN our dreams. It’s our responsibility to interpret them according to our personal standards/perception.

And if we can’t do that, there are loopholes. We can reprogram, reassess, refocus, rescript.

If it’s in our dreams, somewhere in our waking consciousness there IS a correspondent. I guarantee it.

Ergo, if we don’t like what we’re dreaming, we can pull strings in our waking lives to adjust our somnular realms. (and vice versa)

Great question and as usual, great post.

Thanks for the call-out for comment.

Bright beams,
Avia

If we’re talking about Spring, then it’s more about birthing than conception. Things are coming to life now, and they aren’t necessarily hormones… that’s what winter is for.

Oh – forgot to mention that yes, I am having weird dreams. And one of them included a very active in-utero fatherless child. Strangeness.
