Nightmares and Lucid Dreams

Early this morning I received a dozen sms from 2 of my good friends on how horrifying their nocturnal slumber has been.

Ash informed me :

‘I had the strangest dream last nite. I was in mdval time n tortured by Christn Orthodox coz I was a Pagan. Agonizingly painfl. I hv red lashed mark in de back n legs. REAL but no PAIN !!! Gila kali’

Ash is practically a Bruneian and ‘gila kali’ is equivalent to ‘this is crazy’.

I asked her ‘do u hv d lash marks in ur dream or upon waking up?’ of which she answered :

‘Strangely enough de red lashed marks @ de back n legs r REAL. But no PAIN !!! Gila kali.'

I suddenly remembered 2 things :

1. She talked about Botticelli being a member of Priory of Sion some 5 days ago.

2. Then, I sent her The Book of Lucifer plus some other medieval occult stuff some days ago. JUST FOR FUN ! They were meant to be flipped and thrown away, not contemplated on. I just happen to be a sucker for anything medieval, especially when some materials were written in Medieval Latin.

Upon questioning her whether the above could have triggered her weird masochistic dream, she answered :

‘Yes I flippd de book during lunch hour 2 days ago. 1 more point I missd to tell. I was a man or in a man’s body, I know 4 sure coz it’s my SOUL’

Ash, I suggest that you try a past-life regression therapy. In the meantime I’ll try to find out if Botticelli ever painted anything sadistic.

Nouri’s experience was more like a lucid dream whereby she was ‘awakened in her sleep’ and experienced intense vibrating, complete with buzzing sound, in her every molecule. She had 4 arms and another body trying to split from her physical body. She struggled to dismember the extra 2 arms and upon succeeding found a Qur’aan on top of her head.

Maybe I’ll tell her when we meet next (she is currently under curfew - chicken pox) that from my reading, that situation seemed to form the base for astral projection@travelling, if she’s interested.

About 4 weeks ago I dreamt of my dearly departed friend (may she rest in peace). She was clad in black and white evening dress, smiling and saying this to me ‘make sure you come to meet me in August, 28th August’ of which I replied ‘Yes of course’. She insisted for confirmation by saying ‘promise?’ with a pleading look. I was very fond of this girl. She was my childhood friend and right to the end, not even once she caused a disharmony to my psyche, so I said ‘I promise’. Now, what do we make of that? Today is 27th of August and I’m freaking out. Help !!!

Last Thursday night 19th August 2004, I had another weird dream. I noticed that something lumpy was under my fingernail ie in between my fingernail and the flesh underneath it. It was round in shape and darkish. I pressed my nail to get it out. No pain. What came out was a dark red gemstone, unpolished. It was round and the size of half fingernail. Couldn’t figure out whether it was a ruby or a garnet. Then I noticed that there were similar things under my other fingernails, so I started pressing them one by one. Similar stones came out.

Since then I’ve been doing a little research on dream interpretation, from Freud’s to Tajul Muluk's to metaphysical/new age sites. After scanning through 40+ materials online, these are what I got.

If one’s birthstone is ruby (mine is, for I was born in July and ruby is the birthstone for July) then dreaming of rubies mean that one will attain spiritual enrichment.

Ruby symbolizes love, passion and sexual desire. Dreaming of a ruby would mean either realisation/manifestation/crystallisation of these needs or if the gem slips out of one’s hand, losing a lover. In my case, they slipped out from under my fingernails ie came out of hiding. What could it mean?

Ruby or red gemstone also symbolizes material gains, business success, wealth and prosperity.

On fingernails, if one dreams of dirty fingernails, it means a young member of the family will disgrace the whole clan. Clean and well kept fingernails mean attainment of scholarly progression or advancement of learning.

I still don’t know what to conclude from these. I would have dismissed the whole issue but for the fact that I now believe in thought-forms and etheric bodies and mental planes and parallel universes … so to us dreamers – Ash, Nouri and me, let’s just wait and see … time will unravel the mysteries … or not ….
