Give us your dreams and we’ll steal your soul.

   Posted by: Scrivener

Untitled-1Well, not really. But if asked we will interpret your dream for you at no charge.

A friend of ours asked us to interpret a dream she had. Below is our analysis of this dream.

We (Kris and I) were in a pole type barn, where the back is enclosed and the front is open but very tall. There was a very long strange semi parked in the front of the barn in a half moon shape around the front of the open part of the barn. It was parked sooo close to the sides, I kept being concerned it would hit the sides. There were sections in the truck bed part, it was open from the bottom to the top (the sides were open) almost like it was for a traveling act or something. But I did not see anything that would concrete that.

Any time you see a structure that is central to your dream, it represents yourself—think of your body as a building with many rooms where the doors open onto different facets of your psyche.

The semi-truck in your dream represents feelings of weighted down or that you are doing more than your fair share. A semi-trailer can also symbolize size and power. But in this case since it was parked so close to the barn (yourself), I suggest that this rather large truck represents something (or someone) who is impinging upon your feelings of well-being. Also the fact that it was parked in a semi-circle or half-moon shape or that there was a half-moon shape on the barn and the fact that Kris was there is reminiscent of the High Priestess in the Tarot.

The High Priestess tells you to trust your hunches and to spend time meditating upon the meaning of your dreams. You should look for coincidences (actually synchronicities) while you go about your daily business.

Me and Kris helped the man (loud deep voice) unknown man (had a beard) put something on the truck towards the front in the back, there was a huge semi tires above our heads diagonally.  I grabbed Kris and told her I did not like the way the tire looked and for us to get out. I was gasping for air for real I was aware of this but did not want to wake up. Felt like choking.

The fact that you didn’t want to wake up and thus didn’t tells me that what you experienced is something called a lucid dream. A lucid dream is a dream where you know that you’re dreaming and to some extent, control your dream.

The bearded man represents your animus or the male energy within yourself. He could also represent a strong male figure in your life. The package, which you and Kris lifted onto the truck bed, indicates a problem or issue in your life that you may be repressing or ignoring. You in effected packed it away. Notice that you packed it upon the truck, which was blocking or endangering the barn (yourself).

Seeing tires in a dream may signify that it’s time to release the past and move on. Yet in this dream you are afraid of the tires.

So you jump off the truck and it leaves. This is a visual metaphor literally missing the boat of a new opportunity. You see the truck as “dangerous” so when it leaves taking the missed opportunity with it you are back in your comfort zone.

A choking sensation in a dream in a dream can suggest several things. In this case, I believe that you are ‘choking’ on your inhibitions, not fully following your aspirations or perhaps you are ‘choking’ back your opinions and emotions.

The truck started moving and it was dangerous or I felt danger, so we walked above the barn in a field. It was dusk and I was just able to see things. There were chairs around this little table? Or a log set up like a small side table next to Kris. I was sitting to Kris’s left. The table was closer to her. I asked her if she was afraid the truck would destroy the barn she grabbed a domino but larger looking thing with a picture what looked like a tree on it. I could not make the picture out as it was dusk and I was focusing on the fact as well I was unable to breathe. She said it was protected by …. I did not make the rest out of what she said. On the side of the table/log was a tic tac toe looking board but had more columns long ways and she placed the domino thing on the board and it stayed. There was also another domino thing in the space above the one she put.

In this part of your dream, Kris signifies the high-priestess and the dominos you see are actually runes. See my remarks below regarding the act of having your runes read. So, the domino was actually a rune. You said that the ‘domino’ had a symbol on it like a tree. In the Elder Futhark, the rune which most looks like a tree is the rune, Algiz. Algiz is a protection rune (which may be the protection for the barn which Kris was speaking of when you asked her about the truck harming the barn.) What this means is that you shouldn’t fear this new opportunity, which has withdrawn for the time being but will present itself again.  

 The symbol you saw may have looked like the image to the left. This stylized tree represents Yggdrasil, the Norse tree of life. Yggdrasil is analogous to the Kabbalistic tree of the ten sephiroths.

“Yggdrasil is an immense ash tree that is central and considered very holy. The gods go to Yggdrasil daily to assemble at their things. The branches of Yggdrasil extend far into the heavens, and the tree is supported by three roots that extend far away into other locations; one to the well Urðarbrunnr in the heavens, one to the spring Hvergelmir, and another to the well Mímisbrunnr. Creatures live within Yggdrasil, including the wyrm (dragon) Níðhöggr, an unnamed eagle, and the stags Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Duraþrór.” –Wikipedia

Yggdrasil is Odin’s tree and a symbol of power and courage that encourages you to be bold in your endeavors and follow your just now developing psychic instincts.

The other remaining domino (rune) which you couldn’t quite make out is your yet unfolded future. The runes, the tarot, and other divinations impel, they do not compel; you still have the free will to listen to this advice and act on it or ignore it should you choose to do so.   

 I was gasping

See above: choking.

 

She said some things but they were not able to be understood because I was gasping, she then said as I heard people approach “here comes ? and Thomas” “he will read your runes” The man had a beard and dark hair but not the same as the first man. I assume he sat on my left. There was conversation but I was not able to make out anything because I was not breathing and trying to get a breath.

 

Having your runes read in a dream depicts magick in your life. You are following the lead of the High Priestess (Kris), listening to your intuition, and following your fate.

She had some things there with names on them. She passed me a pen with a symbol on it and the name LEO I assumed it was for the man next to me as this was not my name.

To see a pen in a dream signifies communication either written or spoken or perhaps some other form of self-expression. The name Leo and the symbol (I’m assuming your sub-conscious probably meant the astrological symbol for Leo), wasn’t the name of bearded man #2 (another expression of your animus) but rather the astrological sign, Leo.

 

Leo’s are courageous and outgoing—their symbol is a lion so draw your own conclusions from that as to their fearless nature. Leo’s are also creative and like to be center-stage believing themselves to be the rulers of the universe.   

Woke up gasping.

When you are in discomfort in a dream, it’s not unusual to wake up with a start.

Wiccan Rite for a Midsummer’s Night

   Posted by: Scrivener

Wiccan Rite for Midsummer

You will need these items:

  • The usual tools, candles, paraphernalia for ritual

 

Items needed specific to working:

  • pouch
  • herbs for protection: cedar, bay leaf, catnip (even if you have a dog), comfrey, dried garlic and thyme.
  • measure of your pet such as clipping of fur or stray feather

 

Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love, they depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs, your heart is very big.

–Erica Jong

 

Horned God and AnimalsAll of us have pets in our life that brings us great joy.  Blessing a pet creates a ritual that binds a pet and a family together, celebrating the bond between human and animal.  Blessing a pet is also our way of asking the Gods to protect and keep our pets so that our time with them will be a long and happy journey.

HPS:            Tonight we are make a charm bag for the protection of our pets.  In your pouch add a bit of each of the herbs. Once you are home you can add a bit of your pet’s fur or feather to the pouch to reinforce the blessing.

 

All:               O Great Horned God, father of the woodland,

and loving lord of all creatures that walk, crawl, swim and fly.

A threefold blessing I humbly ask of thee on the Full Wolf Moon night:

May (pet’s name) life be a long, happy and healthy one.

May (s)he always receive your divine protection.

Watch over him/her with every step (s)he take.

Help me protect him/her and strengthen the connection of love between us.

Let this charm be blessed, to hold the energy of protection.

And when our incarnations in this world cease to be,

may we forever be reunited in the great Wiccan otherworld

known as the Summerland.  Blessed be!

Elemental Breath Control Meditation

   Posted by: Scrivener

Untitled-2A variation to simply counting your breaths when meditating is to recite the five elements while practicing breath control. For instance, while breathing in say to yourself and visualize the elements as they appear on the points of a pentagram. Breathe in, “Water, Fire, Earth, Air, Spirit.” Hold that breath, “Water, Fire, Earth, Air, Spirit.” Exhale slowly, “Water, Fire, Earth, Air, Spirit.” Hold that breath at the bottom and recite, “Water, Fire, Earth, Air, Spirit.” Repeat five times—one time for each element. When you are finished, you may want to reach above your head and feel the energy as you pull it down into yourself. You may visualize this energy coming from the moon, sun, stars, or just the Earth in general. Once you’ve drawn this energy to yourself, spread your arms to either side and drop a circle about yourself. You are now ready to begin the main part of your meditation where you may contact your spirit guides, contemplate some aspect of the occult, or seek Divine help.
