Spells and other Sorcery

I've also had the "losing teeth" dream from childhood, but there was never anything specific that happened later that i could connect it to.  And yes,  as soon as i wonder about one of my kids, they'll phone. And i always "think somebody up" whom i haven't seen in a while. 

 

i dream every night - i'm told that this is because i sleep on my back. For the past 10 years, those i mostly dream about are deceased family members and the many friends who have all passed on. These dreams are very vivid and i am interacting with  these people just like i did in "real" life. In one i was actually arguing with a friend...  Another recurring dream is that i'm trying to find my way out of a factory building with many floors, walking through the halls, weaving in and out of machinery,  up and down staairways, never finding an exit. In every one of these dreams i have lost my purse containing my ID and all of my credits cards. (Since i am retired and have no pressing financial worries, i don't know what this means.) I also fly on a regular basis in my dreams.  I just pump myself up and levitate, soaring  through the air above the trees for a brief time. 

 

i know everybody has had the dream where they're late for a class, or aren't ready for a test, or don't have a paper that is due.  This is supposed to be a common dream. And I'm sure you all, like me, have had the experience of misplacing something and later after checking all the places you previously searched, the object appears where you've already looked.  I, personally, get sooo frustrated when i lose something that i think my vibes propel it into another dimension.  Once i calm down and move on to something else,  the object will shift back into my realm, and i'll come across it later in a place where i'm certain i looked before.

 

I've never taken magic mushrooms or LSD, but i've had prescribed medications affect my mind with hallucinations.  Alone in my bedroom at night, strangers would be fading in and out all around me while other shadowy figures hovered in my  peripheral  vision.  Objects would be vibrating, the atmosphere glittering with "fairy dust",  - sometime even phantom smells would fill my nostrils.  And i'd experience a spinning sensation.   This was after my husband passed and i lived alone before moving in with my daughter.  i took myself off those mind-altering meds.  

 

One  experience told to me by others,  is about a dream where a deceased loved one appears, and is a radiant version of herself, speaking no words but just beaming there, obviously happy.  My father said this happened to him after my mother died, and this gave him complete closure.  One time a co-worker who had a secret crush on an accident victim who was a mutual friend of ours, confided to me that shortly after her death, she  appeared to him in a dream, and was all aglow, looking more beautiful than ever. He was particularly moved by this because he felt that maybe, somehow, she knew of his deep feelings for her. 

 

i can't help but be intrigued by the idea that what we call "life" is a dream, and that death is an awakening rather than an ending.

The only ones I've never experienced, not even anything close to it, are the late for class, not ready for test, don't have paper that is due dream.

 

Yes. Life is but a dream.

This old song which on the surface is just a nonsense rhyme, can also be taken as a metaphor:

Row, row, row, your boat,

Gently down the stream.

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,

Life is but a dream.

Sorry to read about your sister; that must have been devastating for your family.  I hear stories like that from time to time, and as a father it is always heartbreaking.

I was in Florida. Came back to the Poconos in Oct 2017. As soon as this house sells, heading back to the Melbourne/Malabar area.
