Another crazy dream that seems to be more than a dream.........

    Here I go again; I am beginning to despair of me!:D

    I can only remember the end of the dream (as often happens).

    I was walking down some stone steps, with a young Indian lady; she had with her a Monkey, that she was carrying, as if she would a child.

    We stopped at the foot of the stairs, and there were two great wooden doors that, (I believe) led to some large banqueting hall. (I say that because I never saw the doors opened, I woke up before that happened).

    The young Indian was some sort of high Caste lady (she was dressed in resplendent clothes, and wore a lot of jewelry). As we gotg to the bottom of the stairs, she took some item off the monkey (and I can't remember what it was - but I had a feeling it was some item of clothing - which makes no sense), gave me the item to put down on an old wooden bench.

    As she took the item from the monkey, she chatted to him (as would a mother to a child) and, although I didn't understand what she was saying, I knew it was some form of "We'll just have to put this down here, before we go to meet the guests" (something like that. I repeated what she said to the monley, giving it a hug.

    The lady turned to me and said "There! Now you speak Tamil".

    That was the dream; I woke up.

    When I got up, the first thing I did was to check online if there was an actual Tamil language (I have heard the word Tamil, of course, as describing a people of the East (around India) (and, I think Thailand ?), but I did not know there was such a language. There is.

    I then checked on the monkey (because I am pretty sure remembering seeing a travelogue once about travel through India where a certain type of monkey is regarded as sacred). There are areas where monkeys are held in such high esteem.
    O.K, I knew the connection with monkeys; what I didn't know was the language 'Tamil'; the dream was so lucid that I woke up still 'living the moment' to describe it as best I could.

    Thoughts ? - my one main one is Astral travel; which I read up about years and years ago (in my twenties); as far as I know, I have only once 'possibly' travelled in the astral plane (during a deep meditation), and I found myself in an imaginary castle 'in the sky'; looking down on earth; at the time I was convinced; later, of course, I began to wonder..........

    I am not too sure who can help mw with this; Seyorni, possibly Lilithu.........perhaps even Engyo..........but if anyone is a believer in astral travel, I'd be glad for your input.

    As for the rest of you, perhaps you can send my wife contributions towards the medication I obviously need.............:D

    Michel what a poem or prose piece about it or just a fictional narrative with you either in or out of the narrative. It is just a dream but sounds sorta cool and has creative potential.

    I would have went on to look at Tamil words to see if I recognized any of them. I would have to do a bit of research, as I've never studied dreams of that sort, and if it was astral traveling, it might have been a past life you was viewing. You may have been a guest in what ever country, and when you knew what the words were saying, the indian lady knew you might understand the language, but the last line "There! Now you speak Tamil," does have me abit confused.

    The way I understood it (I can still 'feel it' now, although it is 9 hours later), is that I was a 'guest', and the woman was complementing me, as if to say "Now you are one of us"..........

    The point is that this goes much much further, but not for this post.......I have a feeling I am still searching for the right 'path'.......what makes it difficult is that I believe in Jesust Christ, and I try to be as good a follower of his as I can (Though I guess I am not that successful)......I am being drawn back into my beliefs of reincarnation, astral travel.........there is so much more - but it is so long since I read on any of this.

    Try and think real hard, and see if there's anymore you can remember.

    My guess is, if she had opened the doors, the scenery would have changed, you'd be standing on a rock, high above a valley. She would have walked out to the edge of the rock, held up the monkey, and all the animals below would be cheering, all while Elton John sang the Circle of Life.

    But that's just a thought.

    I do think each door might have lead to a different place.
    I have heard people's stories of near death experiences, and when they were going back to thier body, they were given a choice of doors, paths, or whatever to take, and that would lead to what there life would be.

    I agree; the 'conjoined dreams' thing........one tends to dream so many times, and yet the mind tries hard to join all the dreams into one long continuous one.

    I tried, but that is all there was. Besides, it was more than a dream.......of that, I am almost sure; I did a little surfing on the web this morning, looking for people who believe in astral travel..........

    As I said, it isn't as if that is a completely new idea for me; I did studies on the subject when i was much younger. Strangely enough, there is a biblical reference to Astral travel, and the way our bodies are 'tied' to our souls, until death........
    From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astral_travel
    Ecclesiastes 12:6-12:7:
    "Remember [your Creator] — before the silver cord is severed, or the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, or the wheel broken at the well, and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it." Projectors claim they can (at will or otherwise) see a silver cord linking their astral form to their physical body. This cord mainly appears to a beginning projector as assurance they will not become lost. However, even experienced projectors find it useful, claiming it is a fast way to return to the body. If the silver cord is severed during life, as a rare form of suicide or naturally by death, projectors believe one returns to the astral as one of eight phases of death, ending either in one's shard of spirit being returned to God or by rebirth. Otherwise, projectors, clairvoyants and spiritualists describe the seventh, or crown chakra as a golden bowl, which is said to shatter at death, especially in a rare form of death caused by a kundalini surge.

    That is all pretty much what i had heard before; as for the Chakras, and kundalini, I have books on that here - good ones
