A Balanced Approach to Wellness

Dream-ava

My friend Ava Carmel, dreamer of universal dreams, shared a dream this evening at our dance class. This was her dream:

Ava was in a place outside with seven other people, and they were standing around in a loose circle. One of the men slowly walked towards a place that was full of mud and stepped into it. The mud gradually pulled him in until his body could no longer be seen. The other people were watching the entire time. The man then emerged from the mud and his movements were very violent. He approached another man and fought with him. Ava walked to him and embraced him in a warm hug, feeling the mud on his body. The man stopped struggling. She walked with him to a room filled with beautiful frescos. She became mesmerized by the frescos and as she was looking at them, she noticed that the man had gone to the other side of the room and was urinating on the floor. The dream ended!

A universal dream can present wisdom at many levels. I asked Spiritual Presence for the main message of this dream. Here is the answer:

The man walked towards the mud with all the people watching and none of them said anything to stop him. As the mud was pulling him down, none of the people came to help him. The mud pulled him down, down, down, but he managed to pull himself out. He became a changed man, angry at the people who watched his descent and did nothing.

This message comes to remind us that when we see a person moving on a downwards tilt, we must try to help. We must not stand idly by. Even if the person ignores us, we must try to help. We might not succeed, but we should try. This message applies to people we know and people we don’t know. We can’t help everyone, but we should do the best we can and not stand idly by. Not stand idly by!

In the dance class, the other woman saw many meanings in the dream. A universal dream can present a different message to each person who hears it.

There are many messages in Ava’s dream. Most of all, remember to not stand idly by.

    I wondered about the similarity between mud-covered individual and the fresco paintings.. and the hug. Lots of texture here.

    • Here is a reply from Ava Carmel: Yes, I really like textures, as you can see by the mono-print. You brought up an interesting parallel between the mud and the fresco.

  2. […] Universal dreams are dreams that are not individual specific; they are dreams that are meant for others to hear. Most people dream dreams that have messages or input just for themselves. Certain individuals have the gift of universal dreams. Here is a blog post about universal dreams: What a dream can tell. […]
