I awoke at 4:00 am last Thursday and thought about Yogananda and the new cycle in my life that has to do with losing documents on my computer. It’s as if I am to let go of the past. I continue to read The Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda and I feel his presence—as do many people. I write about my encounter with this cosmic friend in my book S/He Dragon. Last Sunday I attended service at the Ananda Temple and told Minister Hriman that Yogananda had sent me. His response was, “You look like you belong here.” I will return.
I went back to sleep and had an intense flying dream.
I am in a vehicle passing cars on a road and then debris on the road makes it difficult to drive. I lift off above the roadway to pass cars easily. I pick up speed and can see more strewn debris to the left that looks like cardboard boxes. I want to veer to the left, toward the chaos, so I intentionally shift my weight that direction. The dreamscape shifts. I am now moving through water and am lifted upward. I feel the pressure on my spine as I move in an arc, up, up and around. This “over the top” sensation is thrilling reminding me of a ferris wheel ride. Moving downward into water I think about drowning and become afraid. An inner voice tells me to relax. I am now on the surface of the water looking at other boats and people. The waterway is crowded.
When I shared this dream at Banyen Books on Thursday I mentioned that perhaps the “cardboard boxes” indicated an earthquake. This surprised me. I had not thought of that previously. The next day, Friday, brought news of an earthquake in Taiwan with a 6.4 magnitude.
What is the significance of the dream? What is it saying to me? What do I see?
I do healing work in invisible realms such as dream time. By yielding to strong currents underground and letting them move me up and around I lessen the impact of those forces on earth. Does this mean that humans serve as shock absorbers? I am getting a “yes.” Working in subtle realms has an effect on this gross realm. It is where balance is projected and thus sustained. This is why the “Sacred Feminine” is so critical. This receptive inner space has been pushed aside on planet Earth for the advancement of science, technology and mental intellect. The Sacred Feminine and Masculine S/He are needed for whole brain knowing. Something that Marilyn Ferguson writes about in her book The Aquarian Conspiracy. Here’s another “full circle” looping back to the purple dragon that came in recently. Circles carry wisdom. Pop! Something new is revealed! It looks like I am experiencing—and thus becoming conscious of—a new level of “feedback loops!”
