The Emerald Dream is a vast and ever-shifting dimension of spirits and nature magic that defies mortal perceptions of reality. Time and distance hold no meaning in this intangible realm, and a day on the physical world and feel like decades in the Dream.
I traveled to a verdant forest sanctuary with my wife which was a launchpad to another dimension. We took two trips on two nights. First, a gentle Hawaiian space cruiser that caressed our souls, then a Peruvian rocketship that took me on a cosmic rollercoaster ride through the universe.
Our guide was Galadriel, the Elf Queen, who had piercing bright portal eyes, and a voice so achingly beautiful that it tore my heart apart with exquisite fractal love and reassembled it with waves of energy that felt like ecstatic magma. Forging my heart and soul with the powerful caress of Mother Nature.
On the first evening, the Aloha spirit was gentle. She whispered in my ear, “You’re on the right path…” and showed me my life and the power of choice. “You can choose whatever you want. Reality is a choice.” Early in the journey, I refueled and was gripped with fiery liquid tendrils of energy that gripped my body and being, squeezing my shadows out. After that intense experience, the rest of the night was a journey of bliss and relaxation.
I stepped out into the cool forest air and gazed at the living painting of the night sky shimmering. I was staring the magical fabric of reality and the stars whispered to me with mysterious messages.
The next morning, the wife and I went for a stroll on the ocean cliffs. It was a beautiful day. We relaxed in the sanctuary and waited for our second journey.
On the second evening, I sat with Galadriel and told her, “I want it to be more powerful tonight.” She stared deep into my eyes… as if to make sure I was ready. As the room went dark, I sat back into my seat, waiting for liftoff. Galadriel brought a copilot tonight, Drum Warrior, who alternated with Galadriel in piloting the rocketship.
Immediately, we took off to another dimension. A large cosmic temple structure filled with Divine presence, made of geometric patterns and eyes, filled my mind’s eye. I was overwhelmed with its intensity. The rest of the evening was a journey to other dimensions where I connected to Divine Grandmother, Great Spirit, and the Spirit of the Tribes of Man. My consciousness got stuck in a loop between complete Love/Surrender and Shadow/Control. I metaphysically experienced the danger of desire to control chaos and how that can lead to tyranny. I was at the edge of reality and struggled to come back to this dimension. It was intense and terrifying.
I summoned my Warrior spirit and sat up in the cockpit. A giant Jaguar god gazed down at me, its presence towering over me. It was a reminder to always find the Inner Warrior and sit or stand straight and face chaos head-on, with Strength within Shadow.
Finally, the candle was lit, I returned to my body, and felt intense gratitude to be human again. It was good to be home.
