Dreaming of Turtles

A reader, whom I will refer to as Tiffany, shared a “turtle” dream that she recently had. I’d like to share it here, with some of my own thoughts. Considering how many responses I’ve gotten from my post, “Turtle Energy – Ancient Origins” it would seem that many people are having turtle dreams.

Turtle Medicine

“I dreamt I was on a station bike in the back of a yard that presumes to be mine and a few feet ahead is like a vast water like the sea but it was of no waves.. as when I looked over I saw straight through to the bottom. It’s very clear and everything looked beautiful the colors it was like watching a magazine under water reef… but what stood out was a large turtle in a still motion with huge eyes beaming right at me that gave me creeps.. so while I was on this station bike, my 4year old old that I love so much was playing near the edge.. and I was telling him move away before he falls in as he cannot swim and he was provoking me as he did it even more putting his feet near the edge and grinning… so then I stay on the bike and started shouting for his dad who was somewhere but not seen to tell him come get Asher before he falls but he didn’t and I woke up..”

Thanks for sharing your dream Tiffany. Here’s the sense I get from it…and please understand that this is just my interpretation from what I get from the symbols and archetypes as they showed up in your dream.

To me the “backyard” represents the parts of yourself not seen by others…and it would make sense that the “vast water like the sea” is your inner life (emotions, feelings, fears, etc.).

You were able to see “straight through to the bottom” of the “vast water” which was “very clear and everything looked beautiful…” which seems to represent your infinite potential (for love, beauty, wisdom, etc.).

Your being on the “station bike” (stationary bike?) seems to represent that part of you that perhaps feels is doing a lot of work but not going anywhere (stationary). Your “child” that you “love so much” was “playing near the edge” represents the child within you that you want to protect from the depths of your infinite potential, as it is scary, too wide, too big, as represented by the “large turtle” with “huge eyes.”

Now your feelings are key here. You wrote “gave me creeps…” Was the feeling dark/forboding, menacing?

I know from my own dreams that when something gives me the “creeps,” there is usually an entity or menacing spirit-type of intrusion. However, when I have vast water dreams, to me it can oftentimes be scary in the sense of too big, wide, vast…never creepy.

If your feelings were “creepy” then it would be helpful to “clear” yourself of dirty or unclean energies, using whatever prayers/rituals that make sense to you, Call in your animal protectors, angelic guides, etc. Smudge yourself with sage, command any unclean, heavy or dark energies to be released to the light.

Anyway, hope this helps!

Spirit Guides, Animal Totems – Are They Real?

img_0025

Spirit guides, Animal Totems, I think they’re all imaginary, but that’s not to say that the objects of the imagination are not “real.” They’re just vibrating at different frequencies, perhaps not within the “bandwidth” that our bodies reside in nor within the range of our normal waking state.

In this way of thinking, all thoughts and objects of our imagination can be thought of as “real” from an energetic perspective. I guess the important consideration is whether or not they have the power and consciousness to uplift and help us…I certainly know from my own experience that certain thoughts have the power to hurt/harm.

For example, if I relive a memory of a past hurt, be it physical or emotional, I can feel the unpleasantness and hurt in my body and emotions as long as I hold onto the memories. It makes sense to not hold onto such memories. However, it’s not so easy to tell myself, “Stop the memories! Stop thinking about what happened years ago!”

Also, perhaps you know how trauma can get so embedded in the body and psyche they seem to assume a life of their own in the body/mind…long after the initial traumatizing event!

Back to the question, “Are Spirit Guides and Animal Totems real?” To me the question is a little “off-mark” because it can get as messy and convoluted as the question, “What is Truth?” …which to me is not as interesting as, “What is true to me…and what is true to you?”Or, in another way, “What is real to me…and what is real to you?

We can bring in the words of science and/or the words of scripture to support or even be the gatekeepers for what we believe to be true and real for us…but I think, for me, it comes down to the question, “Is it real for me?” In the sense of “Does it uplift/help, or hurt/harm?”

Are Spirit Guides and Animal Totems/Spirits real to me? Have they helped me? Yes and yes! But I suppose their “realness” may not be as important so long as I feel guided and protected by their presence in my life.

If there ever comes a time when I no longer feel their help and presence in my life, then I can imagine that their “realness” to me will also fade away.

Ascension Into Higher Dimensions: the Angelic Realms

Angels come in many forms, infinite in variety. Some may not be recognizable as anything that would be associated with the angelic realms. They may come as a certain kind of feeling, or as a fleeting thought. If you limit the possible forms they can inhabit, it is easy to miss them when they are with you. They may come as an almost imperceptible vibration of sound, or a subtle wisp of color that flashes in the mind. If you relegate them only to the archetypes that are familiar and “acceptable,” then most likely they are dismissed when they come as a delightful fragrance or gentle puff of wind upon the cheeks.

People wonder about “Ascension” and what it is like to experience the higher realms. An aspect of Ascension is the moment-to-moment consciousness of the expanded Self, which is the connection to the Angelic dimensions. If you are not aware of anything beyond the physical senses, it is because that is where most of the energy has been allowed to dwell. As you allow the awareness to “feel” on deeper and more subtle levels, you begin to understand that the physical plane is but one dimension of a vast and Infinite Consciousness. It requires a loosening up of the belief forms and feelings around the physical senses. It is a matter of feeling and sensing beyond and beneath for the subtle vibrations that are generally beyond reach of the physical instruments. Feel the vibrations of the colors that you “see.” Feel the sounds of the vibrations you “hear”…and so forth.

Ascension is already here. The Angels have always been with you. You are already connected to the higher realms. The mind that questions, “But I’m still dealing with feelings of lack and limitation,” that is just the mind doing what it has been programmed to do. It is an identity falsely assigned to a narrow spectrum of the Infinite Self. As you feel more deeply beneath the “dream” of limitation, the experience of ascension, the bliss consciousness,  will become more and more established in the day-to-day existence.

You are all “Angels” drinking in the subtleties of each moment. The dimensional shift happens from moment to moment and it is not so much a transformation of consciousness as it is a remembrance of who you are and what you have always been: Infinite Spirit that has allowed itself to be lost for awhile in the worldly dream.
