Sunday, August 22, 2010
I blame it on the previous day's horoscope, which if you'll remember, said this:
Saturday, Aug 21st, 2010 -- You might have believed that you had everything under control, but the messages you're receiving from deep within your subconscious can indicate that something else is going on. It's one thing to filter out your own mental noise in order to fully show up in the present moment. But buried desires don't necessarily go away and now they may be coming back to remind you of what you truly want. Embrace your unfulfilled dreams, even if you cannot manifest them at this time.
I can definitely relate to the line about filtering out my own mental noise to be "present" in the present moment. The line after that, about unfilled desires popping back up is the hangman's noose. I must be sitting on a powder keg underneath all this stone-cold-sober exterior!
Anyway, here's what happened - as implausible as it may seem to anybody who knows my acupuncturist - in my mind last night:
I was being chased by the good doctor and his accomplice. It was winter, snow covered the ground and everybody was wearing coats. I don't know what my crime was, only that I was being shot at, so I didn't stick around.
Eventually my escape took me out of town and up and over a steep snow-covered mountain. The mountain had little steps cut into the snow and every now and then, they'd lead down to a dwelling, but I never stopped at any of them, I just kept going. At last, I went as far as I could - the steps in the snow ran out and I could go no further forward - there was no path to escape ahead of me.
Behind me, the doctor and his accomplice were firing at me from the top of a ridge. I doubled back, around the hill and took up a defensive position. When they came down the hill, a firefight ensued which injured the doctor and killed the other attacker.
THEN with my acupuncturist sitting on the ground in the snow injured, I moved in closer to him. He attempted to raise his gun. I aimed mine (a .22 caliber!??) at his chest and told him, "I love you, and I always will." Then I shot him in the heart and killed him.
I suppose I could go many different ways with the interpretation of this dream. Most of them, though, wouldn't be polite to share with the general public!
Let me know if you have any ideas....
