I had an incredible dream last night! I am not one to have vivid dreams or easily remember them, but this one was different. I remember every detail with clarity.
For some time I have been asking for understanding and remembrance of my power as a spiritual being. To fully realize my psychic abilities and increase my communication with the Divine. On my spiritual journey I have sought and received guidance through various means; people, situations, and animals. I believe all of the guidance received to be precious gifts. My dream last night was no exception.
In my dream I was in a house with many people. Suddenly it started to storm. I happened to look out a window that had a view overlooking the ocean. The wind was strong and the sea was rough. I was startled to see a whale fighting the tide trying to come to shore. I could tell the whale was not a baby, but certainly not full grown yet. I thought due to its young age, it must have gotten confused.
"Oh no, stop!" I cried out to the whale. "You are going the wrong way!" I knew the whale couldn't hear me but I was at a loss as to what to do. "Look out the window!" I shouted to the others in the house. "There is a whale trying to come to shore." No one paid any attention.
As quickly as the storm started, it ended. I ran outside to see what had happened to the whale. I was dismayed to find that it had in fact beached itself. But it didn't beach itself on the sand. Somehow in my dream, the whale was able to beach itself between two cars, in a parking space by the house!
As my mind tried to wrap itself around this turn of events, a car tried to park in the parking spot. "Stop!" I yelled to the car. "There is a whale in the parking spot!" The driver of the car didn't hear me. I frantically tried to think of a way to help the whale. I ran into the garage looking for a barricade to put around the whale. I found a large bright orange bike. Grabbing it, I wheeled it outside and put it in front of the whale, thankfully stopping the car from parking there.
My neighbor walked outside to greet her guest. She and her guest were unfazed by the whale. Their only concern was where they could park the car. I was dumbfounded. Didn't anyone else care?
I had to help the whale. I knew some people that were familiar with whales and had the resources to help me get the whale back into the ocean. I called all of them. They were either busy or uninterested.
I finally realized it was up to me and me alone, to help the whale. I then woke up.
Groggy from sleep, I had an overwhelming feeling of concern. However, this concern quickly turned to gratitude as I realized that through my dream, I was given more guidance. I looked up the significance of the whale.
Whales are ancient mammals and are thought by many cultures to be the record keepers of the sacred knowledge of Mother Earth. Whales ask us to reconnect to our deep soul connection to the natural world and our universal consciousness. To remember our own sacred knowledge, our true essence.
Whales are also known for their songs. The vibrational sounds the whales emit are significant and speak to the vibrational energy of all life. Listening and responding to the call of creation can teach us to go within to bring forth our own creative life force.
Additionally the color orange represents creative energy. It is very significant that the bike I chose to protect the whale was orange. In fact, all of the items I had to choose from in the garage were orange.
Finally realizing in the dream that I was the only one that was willing and concerned about helping the whale tells me that going forward I alone am responsible for my own spiritual answers. As the whales are the record keepers of Mother Earth, so I am the record keeper of my own soul. I already have the answers. We all already have the answers. We just need to reconnect with our own vibrational energy, our own creative life force to remember.
There is a saying that you should 'always trust your dreams, for they have chosen you as much as you have chosen them'. I trust my dream last night was meant to give me the guidance I have been asking for. My answers are within. It is time to remember.
