Throughout my childhood
I had recurring nightmares
About men coming to kill me
They would pop into a random dream
And machine gun me down
Or stab me to death
Or just chase me, intending murder.
It wasn’t very pleasant.
Last night, in my dream
I inadvertently stumbled into the middle
Of a gang shooting some other people
And they saw me.
They started to chase me.
But this dream suddenly changed
I was in a new place
And I was about to get onto an amusement park ride
I had my daughter with me
She was about 5 in the dream
I thought I was too big for the harness, and it would never fit
But it did.
I knew the ride would include
Alligators jumping up at us
So I strapped her up behind me
And we went in.
The first part was a series
Of electric brush things
Kind of like a carwash
That made my nervous system
Go on high alert.
And somehow we ended up with a man
Who took us directly to the two men
Who were trying to kill me earlier in the dream
Since we were still in the amusement park
They knew they were being watched
And couldn’t kill me there
But one grabbed my daughter and ran
He started falling down this great staircase
Kind of like Kung Fu Panda
Some inner power in me just came on
I could feel myself bound after them
With incredible speed and strength
It was as if I suddenly was aware I was dreaming
And then I knew I could do anything I wanted...
I magically lifted the men with just my mind
Like Jean Gray
Holding them together at the top of the room
I threatened to erase them
One foot at a time
Unless they gave up their leader.
I erased one man’s left foot
Before he gave up the location of his boss.
The gangster leader was different
He was a powerful man
And not so afraid of dying
I thought about threatening to erase more precious parts
But his strength and courage made me stop.
Instead I magically sent him and his men
To a farm community
In which they could do go work, feel their healthy contribution
Be fed with good food and appreciated for their strengths
Giving them a healthy purpose made them content and peaceful.
And my daughter stood up
Strong and healthy
With power shining from her heart.
And we took a walk through the alligators
Just for fun.
