Dreams are the most ancient, and yet misunderstood language in the world. That’s because we don’t understand symbolic language anymore. But if we know the language, dreams can show us how our soul sees our life, and that’s good, because often our ego is either too big or too small to let us see the reality of our lives.
A woman who has been dealing with major health issues from a deep spiritual perspective had this dream. She is never sure if her perceptions are true, and this dream is showing her that she does, indeed, have a deep vision.
I am looking out a double-paned window. The left side has no glass and looks like a cathedral window and is ‘sacred’. Through it, birds can come into my home. The right side has a glass pane and is a concession to convention and overlooks ‘The Eternal Hills’. But it isn’t Rome – it feels more like Greece with sun shining and the smell of the sea.
This is my retirement apartment and I have brought my nephew to it. It is built on honey-combed, sound-resonating rock beside the Sea on an island. The honey-combed rock is the necessary foundation because it shifts with the sands of the beach, thus making a greater stability than can be found elsewhere.
One bird is coming to enter my ‘sacred’ window and soon more will come. I wake up feeling carefree and satisfied.
The first image of the dream is a double-paned window, with un-matching panes. The left one is open, ornate and old-fashioned, while the right side is glassed in and conventional. The left side is sacred while the right side is convention. These two window frames symbolize the two sides of the brain. The right brain, which controls the left side of the body, is the eye of feminine, symbolic consciousness. The left brain, which controls the right side of the body, is the eye of masculine, collective consciousness.
This woman can see in both ways simultaneously. She can see with the eyes of spirit and with conventional eyes. She thinks of convention as the eternal wheel of unconsciousness that keeps people re-incarnating until they discover their inner spiritual side. She has worked hard to develop her spiritual insight, which the dream indicates is starting to really flow. One bird, which often represents spiritual insight and understanding or messages, is already there, and more are to come.
She is in ‘retirement’ due to her illness. She doesn’t have a nephew in reality, but a nephew carries on the family line in some way. So there is a masculine, doing aspect of her personality which is there with her ego, learning how to use both windows. This family aspect has to do with practicality and knowing how to work the ‘system’.
The house itself is interesting in that it sits on land is has been opened up by the sea. She associates this kind of soil with the landscape in Cappodocia and Turkey, like the Neolithic caves in ancient Anatolia. These caves were sacred to the Mother Goddess. The sounds of the sea came up through the porous ground into the house and through the window. So the house itself resonates with the sea.
The interesting thing about this land is that normally, people want to build on solid ground, but this woman, through her illness and meditations, is learning to live with inconsistency and movement. To be grounded in movement, to live in the flow, is what she is learning.
Dreams can keep us on track with our lives. Why not give it a try and start recording some of your dreams. You won’t regret it!
