Nameless Dreamer- Growing Pains

flower-of-life

The girl crossed her arms and let out a forced sigh. “You keep saying, ‘You’ll see’, but I don’t see anything! What you are saying makes no sense at all.”

“You’re not a very patient one are you?” The orb said in a very calm matter.

“No, it’s not that I’m impatient. It’s just that everything is so different, so big, so vivid, so colorful and so…”

“Scary.”

“Yeah…”

Suddenly, a luminescent seed of life appeared in front of the girl and the spirit orb. A relatively small moon and a unidentifiable planet appeared behind the colossal seed. The orb thrusted the girl with all its might at the colossal seed and she stuck to it like the merging of magnets. The girl tried to stand up, but she ended up falling backwards and stuck to the seed.

“What the? Get me off this thing!!!!”

“Just rotate the seed and you will be free of it’s magnetic force.”

“Now how do I do that spirit orb?” The girl said in a impatient tone.

“Have you ever played with a toy top before?”

“Yeah, I used to collect them when I was little. I still have a full drawer at home… if I ever get there that is.”

“Okay, listen very carefully on what you need to do. Now first I want you to close your eyes.” The orb proceeded to float in her direction.

“Okay. My eyes are closed.” The orb sat on top of the girl’s head as soon as she closed her eyes.

“Now this might make you feel a little bit dizzy, but the feeling will quickly dissipate. Now that you have your eyes closed, I want you to envision the shape that you are stuck to as of right now. The shape is called ‘The Seed of Life.'”

“Okay.” The girl started to envision the colossal glowing seed. “Now what do I need to do next?”

“Do you see that shape that you are looking at?”

“Yes, I can see it in my mind. Now what would you like me to do?”

“I want you to envision that shape, really really focus on it. With that, envision the seed of life as a top.”

“Uh okay… How do I do that?”

“Take that shape that you see, and form it into a top. Think of it if you were to draw a picture or make a sculpture out of it.”

“I think I understand what you mean… okay.”

“Do you see the top?”

“Yes I do see the top.”

“Spin the top.”

“What?”

“I said spin the top! Spin it as fast as you can.”

“How do I do that if I can’t even touch it???”

“Envision it spinning dear girl.” The massive seed of life began to rotate in a 360 degree manner as soon as the girl began to spin the top.

“Oh god! I’m dizzy. Holy crap! Oooooooouuuuughhhh…”

“It’s alright dear girl! Give it a moment.”

“Okay. I trust you spirit orb. Whooooaaaaaaahhhh!!!!!” The colossal seed rotated faster and faster as the top in the girl’s mind spun. It eventually spun at breakneck speed. Suddenly the girl was yanked off the spinning seed and a flash of bright golden light filled her vision for a moment.

“Here we go! Hang on tight!” The spirit orb stretched its wings almost as far as the eye could see. The wings, like the flash of light were so bright that they blinded the girl’s vision for a few moments. The duo gently float down onto a large boulder that sat several yards from a massive waterfall. The girl rubbed her eyes and opened them. She was in awe of the new world that appeared in front of her eyes.

“You did it.” The orb said. A jolt of unbearable pain shot through the girl’s spine up through her head and once again she was on the ground in agony. The excruciating jolt lasted for only a few seconds. As soon as the jolt of pain stopped, the girl stood up. She felt her shoulders again and found that the bumps that were once there were significantly bigger. They were 3-4 inches in length and they were much thicker than before. She looked at the spirit orb in disbelief, then outwards towards the horizon of the new world.

Nameless Dreamer- The Development of Wings

cda7c1a4afeef88035e06a7cf345b6ca--water-nymphs-desktop-wallpapers

             As the girl ran after the indigo orb, a sharp pain jabbed her shoulders and back, causing her to fall to her knees. Ow! What the hell? She jumped back up to find that there was nothing behind her. She felt her shoulders for any kind of bleeding or open gashes. What the? I know this is a dream, but that really really hurt. Thankfully I’m not bleeding or anything like that. “Follow me dear indigo girl! There is no time to waste!” The orb yelled at her from a distance. 

“What did you just call me? I’m a what?” The orb was inches away from her face once again. 

        “I say you are an indigo girl.” The orb gently tapped her nose and let out a soft giggle. This gave the girl a warm tingly sensation that went from her feet up through the crown of her head. She had never felt anything like this before, but she certainly wanted to feel it again. 

“I still don’t know what that means spirit orb light thingy.”

                 “You will soon enough. Follow me!” The orb darted off once again into the distance. Suddenly a small dot appeared within the girl’s sight. The farther she ran, the bigger the dot appeared. As she got closer to the dot, the dot began to grow into the form of an old wooden door. It’s hinges, knobs, and locks were made of pure gold and the wood smelled of freshly cut oak, despite its age. The orb stopped in the girl’s tracks as soon as she was a few yards away from it. “Take this!” A large golden key came from the orb and dropped onto the ground in front of the girl’s feet. She kneeled down to grab the key, then suddenly that sharp jabbing pain came back. The pain was nearly unbearable. She couldn’t get up from the surface of the water and curled into a fetal position. The pain shot through her whole body this time. “You must get up!” 

“I-I can’t! It hur-rts too much!” She began to cry as the pain permated through her body.

       “Oh I almost forgot. Here, let me give you something to help you with those growing pains.” The orb tapped on the girl’s back and suddenly the pain gone. “Shhhh don’t you cry dear one. This should help.”

    “Thank you. I really needed that.” The girl got up with the key and used one of her hands to feel the back of her shoulders. There were two distinct lumps stood a few inches out of her shoulders. What the hell is this??? 

“Those growing pains will come and go dear girl. As time goes on it will be easier to handle them. They will stop eventually. That I can assure you.”

“Why am I having these in the first place?”

“You will find out more as soon as you open this door.” The orb started to float towards the door knob. “A whole new world awaits you behind this door.”

This is one crazy dream. She thought to herself. 

“Who said that this was a dream?”

The girl began to walk towards the door of gold and ancient oak. She gently put the key in the keyhole. The key began to glow as it entered the keyhole. And with that, her journey beyond the cosmos began.

Dream Journal- Part 1: The Romance

(Note- due to the length of this dream journal, it is going to be a 3 part separate post journal. Each entry will be linked to one another. Names and identities will stay anonymous.)

Its interesting how massive my dreams can be the later I sleep during the day. While being under the weather, I had a beast of a dream. It wasn’t a nightmare, and it definitely wasn’t abstract. It also wasn’t quite lucid either, however I somewhat had a sense of awareness of what was going on.

I walked into my dream to find myself in my old high school. It seemed very quiet and docile. I recall walking down the walkway towards the stadium and outdoor stage in the middle of the school with my friends (We will call them Janice, Josephine, Michelle, Francine, etc). It was late afternoon and I could feel the setting sun’s warmth upon my neck, arms, and shoulders. 

“Come on! We have something to show you!”, one of my friends exclaimed as the motioned me to go to the stadium. A few of them sprinted past me with wild excitement on their faces. 

“What’s going on? What is it that you’re trying to show me?”, I asked. 

“It’s a surprise!”, my dearest best friend Janice told me as she guided me closer to the stadium. The sun set faster and faster as I was told to sat down. There were folks all around my age gathering at the stadium. Somehow, seems as though my surroundings kept changing around me. At first, when people started to appear, so did red ribbon, swans, birds, candles, food, and gentle lights appeared around us. A gentle night breeze passed through the palm trees that lined the stadium. People were socializing with one another and greeted me with true kindness and joy. Men were dressed in suits and ties, women in dresses and fancy skirts. I was amazed by how beautiful everything was.

I thought this was perhaps a birthday surprise, but I could not tell whether if it was my birthday or not. I could not remember what time of year it was. I questioned myself and my friends what was up, not in a nasty way of course, but I just wanted to know what the special occasion was. It seemed somehow maybe it had to do with some special occasion, because everyone around me made it clear that it was for me and extremely crucial. I eventually gave in and went with it.

The stage in front of us lit up the crimson red curtain on the top of the stage. The outdoor setting started to form into the indoor stadium which was conveniently right next to this one, odd right? However, the initial concrete stage and stadium turned into a wooden stage and red velvet seats all morphed into extended soft loveseat like benches. The curtains opened and my named was announced for the occasion. I got a round of applause! Even my family was there for a short amount of time, only to leave not to long after. The stage withheld from a display that appeared to shift from having a small set of seats, a swan moat, pink neon lights, and softly playing music. I thought to myself ‘what is this a game show?’.

No, it wasn’t. The song ‘Matchmaker’ from Fiddler on the Roof randomly came up as my friends including Janice and others shortly sang it and waltz around me. I was really irritated at first, but then one of my friends (a very handsome tall man with dark hair and eyes) put their arms around my shoulders and said, “Aw, come on Alex! You should go for it! This is all for you, you know? Why not enjoy yourself?” I was reluctant, but again gave in after I felt a soft presence looking in my direction.

It seemed that others were partaking in this event as I watched other men and women being matched up together from the stage. As they were matched together, they would go from the stage and stadium towards the exit either carrying each other, kissing one another, or holding hands. The guests that were leaving waved goodbye to me and congratulated me. Only a few people remained, which were my closest friends, and I was still so confused on what was going on. Finally it was my turn and I was brought up towards the stage. There were only a few men left and only one of them stood out at me. It was the same one that had stared at me from the beginning of the curtain opening. He had long, curly and wavy light blonde hair, fair skin like mine, crystal colored eyes, a gentle smile, fairly tall, and in a soft white blue suit. He was perfect. He started to approach me and said a few gentle words, yet another man stepped in front of him and tried to talk to me. He was tall, sly, and had a wide-weasel like smile. I talked him to leave me be and he walked off the stage. Everything around me seemed to start to spin and I came back to my senses to find the man in the blue suit right behind me. We’ll call him Cain.

We found ourselves back towards the stage alone and watched the swans dancing in the water and moonlight from above. The stage and stadium was gone and all we could see above was stars. I remember the affection that manifested between myself and this man. Every kiss and gentle touch felt so real. I felt invincible. We felt invincible. I finally found myself right where I needed to be within that single moment.
