Two of my kids have reported seeing what they call angels on multiple occasions. For example, I remember seeing our oldest standing at the front door, looking up toward the chandelier that was turned off. At first, I couldn’t tell if she was frightened or mesmerized, but after awhile, I realized she was in her own little world and strongly revered whatever it was she saw.
After about 30-60 seconds of her staring into the same spot, ignoring my questions, she finally responded to, “What do you see?” The image apparently disappeared because she started to walk away, answering my questions, “My angel,” which she described later as a big blue man. She was 3 at that time, and these instances have slowly vanished.
Incidentally, some researchers claim that kids lose their ability to see into the otherly realms because they are conditioned by their parents, friends, or culture at large that this is impossible or that they are strange or weird for having this ability.
However, I can genuinely say that this has not been the case for my daughter, for over the years she has had less and less of these special occasions even though we’ve paid special attention to give her nothing but a positive atmosphere to share her experiences.
In my non-scientific study of this phenomenon, my hypothesis is that the physical life seems to gradually grow stronger and more defined as we age, and as it does so, we naturally separate ourselves from the other reality(ies). On the back side of life, we gradually merge back into the non-physical again, having less association with the physical reality and more in the alternative reality. My grandmother was an example of this recently. At 98, she laid there so peacefully, barely uttering any words. She seemingly was bouncing between worlds because whenever she managed to talk, it was either “I’m going home” (a very spiritually-oriented statement) or “I’m thirsty” (a very physically-oriented statement).
In other words, the soul connection to the non-physical world can be stronger at the beginning and end of life, which allows these unseen realities to become more prominent. In the middle portion of life, reality is just way too potent and consuming to where the otherly signals aren’t strong enough to reach conscious awareness through the typically strong noise of our everyday lives.
Now, of course, this is just a generic observation and only applies to people who fall inside “the norm.” Outside the norm are those indigo kids, spiritual adepts, or just general people experiencing a “spiritual emergency.”
Also, age old wisdom says that we can purposefully learn to attune to this alternate reality, but such is not the purpose of this post.
Dream from an Indigo?
We had a reader from Phoenix who recognized their 5-year-old possibly tapping into the unseen world, this time via dreams. This was submitted on June 8th to the DreamBase…
This dream actually came from my 5-year-old daughter, so I don’t have as many details as I might if it were me, but she honestly has had many instances of talking about things before the happen, etc, that I take her little thoughts & dreams very seriously. (For example, a few weeks ago she randomly said “God needs more people in heaven,” and then a week later my grandpa unexpectedly fell down the stairs and passed away.)
This morning she came stumbling groggily in to my office after waking and said, ”In three weeks this whole place is gonna melt!”
I asked her what she meant, and she repeated it again. I asked her if it was from a dream and she said, “Yes, that’s what they were all saying.” I asked her who, and at that point all she could remember was her brother, but it was clear there were many people involved.
We do live in Phoenix, so it is entirely possible that we will “melt” here in three weeks, but the tone of her voice made me feel it was necessary to report.
Remember that when working with dreams, there are so many ways to work with and interpret them. One of the highest tenants when working with dreams is that no dream has just one meaning, and the other tenant is that only the dreamer can say with any certainty what their dream actually means.
As for the National Dream Center and our DreamForecasts, we’re mainly concerned about how the interpretation affects the future, so what about the melting dream?
Here are two obvious implications if the dream is prophetic:
Option 1. It will become unusually hot in Phoenix within three weeks. Having lived in Phoenix for some time myself, being extremely hot is not unusual. To confirm this particular headline would have to probably include some physical object melting because of the unusual heat (like tires or pavement melting might be an indicator).
Option 2. A big fire melts everything in its wake.
Connection to Linguistics
Here’s a very interesting phenomenon that has been apparent in the linguistics lately, and it has to do with location. The number one dream city in the collective unconscious is….Phoenix (rivaled only by Atlanta).
Now, of course, there could be absolutely nothing to this, but when linguistics overlap with actual dream content, particularly dreams in our DreamBase, the percentages of likelihood tend to also increase.
The other interesting linguistics on our last run was that “warmer” and “sunny” both made a jump upward in frequency, while “wet,” “cloud,” and “flood” went significantly lower.
Finally, the number 13 made a huge jump (42% higher), and I’m anxious to see whether that has any connection. Not that this means anything, but Phoenix fire station #13 sits at 2828 N. 47th Place, Phoenix.
In future work
In future phases of the Dream Center, we’ll have some sort of probability or percentage attached to a dream sequence / prediction that will indicate how likely it is for a physical world event to take place.
Then, based on the type of prediction and the actual probability, we’ll have teams making transpersonal interventions to either fulfill the dream or disenable it. If we were faced with this melting scenario, particularly Option 2, we’d obviously desire some sort of fire prevention.
The modalities for intervention will vary by whatever is preferred by the individual. We know that intentions can sway random number generators and that resonating collective intentions can sway the RNGs even more. Other modalities include meditation, prayer, lucid dreaming, and many more.
