Some of you may have noticed a new tab on my website – Dream Collector – and wondered what this is about. The short answer – I am in the process of collecting dreams. This is an exchange I have set up. You give me your dream to do with as I please and I will give you a free dream interpretation.
Now, some of you may be wondering, why in the world am I doing this? Why have I even ventured into the realm of dream interpretation whereas my main focus has always been on tarot? The short answer – my guides made me do it.
The long answer…well for that we would have to go back to August 2015. There I was standing in the bargain book section at Barnes and Noble and a scent drafted my way. Not the soothing smell of the in-house Starbucks, instead this was the pungent odor of patchouli. Knowing intuitively what this meant, I felt the urge to look down. What was the first book to catch my eye – a book on dream interpretation. I knew right then that my guides wanted to direct me to this book, but I wasn’t exactly sure what their message was all about.
This idea of dream interpretation was not new to me at that point. A few years before this, I had discovered a podcast on unity radio by Michael Lennox and had binge listened to many of those episodes. But why would my guides want me to start focusing on dream interpretations, I still wasn’t sure.
The next week I decided to take a trek to the local metaphysical store. I had recently moved back to the town I grew up in and was slowly making my rounds to all the stores to find out which ones had the best wears. I entered the store and felt a sudden electric shock. Hmmm, that was weird. It was the middle of summer in a city full of humidity – a place where static electricity doesn’t like to dwell. I beelined it over to the tarot decks to check out their selection. Not quite the wall of decks from the last city I lived in, but a decent selection. I handled a few, looking over the familiar decks, and then I touched one and that “shock” came back. Hmmm, this electric shock came when touching The Dreaming Way Tarot.
Okay, so now my guides had lead me to a Dreaming Interpretation book and a deck of tarot cards called The Dreaming Way Tarot. This picture was starting to fall into place. I started re-listening to the Dream Interpretation podcast and reading every book I could find at the library on the subject. And then I did what most of us do with the guidance we receive – forget about it for a year.
Well, that is not entirely true. The idea that the dream world and dream interpretations were important to my path always stayed in the back of my mind, but I wasn’t quite sure what they meant. And, the truth is, I’m still not sure where the idea of the dreamworld is supposed to lead me – what I am sure about is the power of guidance and the knowledge that I should actually follow all these signs I have been given.
So after some more signs appeared late in 2016 (including a peak into my Akashic records) I decided to go forward and start offering dream interpretation as a service in my etsy store. I told my guides – if this is what I am supposed to do give me a sign. Well, I had my first order in less than an hour and more orders continued to come in. I guess that was their answer.
Now how did I get from there to this idea of Dream Collector and offering dream interpretations for free? Another message from my guides. This time it came in a familiar way – a song. I have this guide that communicates very strongly by giving me song lyrics. Sometimes I know where these songs come from and sometimes I google them later on to find out who sung them or where they are from. Here the song that came to mind during a meditation was “Give it away” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers – one that I had to google to find out who sung it.
Add up all this guidance and I have had some pretty strong indicators that my path in life has something to do with dreams and to get there I need to start collecting other people’s dreams. What am I going to do with this collection I am amassing? Good question. I have some ideas in mind, but the full guidance has not come through yet. What has come through is a time frame – 3 years. Yep, I am going to have to be patient and wait this one out. Luckily, I am well aware that patience is one of those lessons I have come here to learn so I am getting better at it the more I am exposed to it – but, I won’t lie, it is still really hard to be patient.
So that is my story. Did this intrigue you? Are you interested in adding a dream to my collection? If so, hop on over to my Dream Collector page and fill out the form – you give me your dream and I will send my interpretation of it your way.
