Ayer’s RockMay 18th, 2017


I set the intention to go to Ayer’s Rock to meet Claire and Eileen from last night’s breakout group (I hope I have their names and spelling correct). I arrived there with my mom and two other people in a 4-door sedan. It was different than I expected. There was a lot of water there as if it had rained recently. In fact it was so abundant with water that there were streams and pools everywhere and because of this, there were animals everywhere. Lots of them. I was mostly noticing fowl of different kinds, mostly in the grey and white hues. There were also a lot of monkeys tho I’m not sure what type. We didn’t get out of the car. We drove more toward the right and came upon another area where there were giant koalas and giant ostriches. We got out of the car this time but I was a little concerned about my mother. She had her purse with her which I couldn’t figure out why and there was an ostrich that was very interested in it and was approaching her but she was oblivious to this. I had to tell her to watch out for things around her. I stayed close to her to protect her.
We came across to minivan loads of people. One group in a dark blue minivan had dogs with them that were incredibly friendly. They were beagle-like, small to mid-size dogs, low to the ground. One of them reminded me of a hound. I asked the woman where they were from and she told me Nevada. I said that we were neighbors, from California. There were others there but I don’t recall details.

HarmonicaMay 17th, 2017


I’m on a city street at the curb. I seem to be sitting on a skateboard pushing myself around with my hands. Mel is sitting in the gutter at the curb doing some sort of craft. The curb is red. I’m thinking about a bookcase and there are a number of old books that I’d like to read but I wonder if I’ll truly get around to reading them or whether I should just get rid of them. Mel and I casually talking about it and other subjects that come to mind. I move over to a driveway that leads into a chain link fence as whatever building in this area is long gone and there’s nothing but a vacant lot. There’s a car parked nearby. I’ve found a sort of groove by rocking up the driveway and then sliding back down, then up the slope of the street and back down, aided by simple push-offs with my arms and hands. I’m rocking back and forth. A car drives up and wants to park when it sees us in the place where it wants to park, and then moves on. We’re looking at an area where a guy walks up and starts playing blues harp. He’s pretty good. I notice that his feet look like monkey’s feet. I tell Mel to notice them. He shrugs. The guy finishes and walks away. Another guy comes up and starts playing blues harp. He’s wearing an apron and when he finishes, I noticed that there’s a table there and he’s actually waiting on it as it’s a restaurant. He comments that this is his last table there ever. It seems this is a famous spot for people to come and play blues harp but that was long ago and they’re paying homage too it as it’s now closing down.

The aching in my arms seems to be some sort of exercise. There’s concern about the books, like wishes that haven’t come true. There’s the harp playing that’s nostalgic from my years playing open mikes and trying to get my music off the ground. These are familiar to me.

Corry’s BlouseMay 16th, 2017


I’m with Corry and I’m trying to help her dress. I have this very colorful shirt for her to try on but it seems that it’s too small for her to wear over what she’s currently wearing so I’m asking her to disrobe. She starts to pull off what she’s wearing but underneath is a sort of peach colored frame of a woman that she’s wearing under all her clothing, close to her body. I notice and realize why she’s more private about taking off her clothes in front of me.

Discovery beneath.

It could have something to do with the web site. Not sure.

Love String – Good Ol’ DaysMay 13th, 2017


I’m watching a long white kinda of smoke-like ribbon draw the word “love” continuously in a long strand, over and over. I’m singing Carly Simon’s Anticipation with a woman and we’re singing the part where we’re repeating “these are the good ol’ days” over and over.

Lottery Parking LotApril 29th, 2017


I’m in a parking lot at night. There are people there and they’re really excited about the lottery because it just went up to $220M. I’m wondering if it will go up to $260M. There’s a large dark van there. I’m with a group of men that take other hostage at gun point. They’re forcing three of them, particularly one to go somewhere. Now, it’s day light and there’s a ruckus amongst some school kids nearby that distracts the man with the gun. One of the hostages takes the gun but there’s another ruckus and he drops it and the other guy gets it again. Another guy gets away and goes up to a group of police officers and screams at them and gets them to follow him. However, there’s a bank robbery nearby and police who are following him stop there to give assistance to the other officers already present there.

Jerry to the HospitalApril 29th, 2017


I’m in a sort of chamber where there’s a large hot tub or spa. I’m in it with Jerry and we’re relaxing. Time changes and we’re in the future and Mel and my mom are there with Jerry. They ask if I knew that Jerry had a spa and I confirm that I’ve been in it. Jerry announces that he’s going to need to go to the hospital ‘cos something’s wrong with him. We get in the car. My mom says something snarky to Jerry and Jerry replies with something snarky. We head out the driveway onto the road. Jerry and I end up at an altar. There are two canupas there. I can hear Nathan talking but I don’t see him. Suddenly, I wonder where Nathan’s canupa is. I see a canupa that is a carved dragon that spirals from the stem to the bowl. It’s very thick and elaborate.

SundanceApril 28th, 2017


I’m at Yucca Valley and I’m near the lodge. Someone asks me to go to the drum. I go there but the drum isn’t set up. Grey, Ronan and Dave are laying under a canopy, face down on the ground with bodies erect, with their faces buried in a pile of sandy dirt. I’m like… “Ok, what does this mean?” and I hear Ronan says that they’re sticks. I notice that there are a lot of people camped. The canopies are connected together making huge rooms. There are lots of kids, colors, and shade, but they’re right over the hocoka. I’m wondering how the dance is going to take place.

Shot Thru the ThroatApril 23rd, 2017


I’m standing somewhere on a road. There’s pampas grass growing on the other side and there’s a caucasian woman standing on the road. Down the road is a black man in red and blue robe and pants and he’s running toward her with his hands behind his back. As he gets close to her he whips around in front of him a three pronged ninja dagger and stabs the woman in the throat. I’m pretty shocked by this. Then she takes the dagger out and chases down a different caucasian man and stabs him in the throat. He takes out the dagger and looks at me. I’m like… uh uh… so I run down a side road near the pampas grass. This startles me awake.

Chairs and LightApril 20th, 2017


I was looking at chairs supplies by the east bay guy. He was showing me the choices I had available to me. Next I’m looking at a building that seems to b on a movie set. There’s a building that s kind of like a large house barn combination. It starts to completely fall apart but I know it’s part of the script or story so although I’m concerned at first, I let it go ad it’s supposed to happen. Then I look over behind the building and there’s a light bulb that starts to spark like a Tesla coil. It’s sparking like crazy and I’m watching it.

Cal and the Other UniverseApril 19th, 2017


I’m in a room with Cal and a bunch of people. The room seems to be on a starship and this seems like a training exercise in some sort of advanced intelligence to reconfigure reality. She’s talking about something when suddenly I remember a visionary experience I had where I was moving thru dimensions or universes while being attacked by some nefarious star being. I was doing a good job of fending it off but the fact that I didn’t remember and was just now recalling it was pretty striking. I remember there being a lot of dark metal, a lot of blue light, and some sort of geometric boundary that acted like a portal or worm hole that I was traveling thru in my mind.
