when words fail me, which is often, I paint. When words work for me and are available on time, I am surprised.

Psychic Dreaming or Wishful Thinking, yes I am kidding

I keep dreaming I loose our puppy, Kramer. I have changed his name though, his new name is Stop-It!
But it's him and I am unsure whether it is a premonition or a nightmare or an actual dream. What was life like before our little friend Stop-It came along?

This from my surfing today(is it still called surfing?)
The Dreams Foundation in Canada

Catholic Bishop Joseph Lanyl dreamed of the assassination of the arch-duke of Austria, Fran├žois-Ferdinand de Habsbourg. In vain, he tried to reach the arch-duke to warn him of the assassination which occurred June 28, 1914 in Sarajevo — the event that triggered the first world war.

A few days before his assassination, American President Abraham Lincoln, who was very attentive to his dreams, dreamt of his own corpse laid out in a room in the white house. Martin Luther King also seems to have had a precognitive dream about his death a few months before his assassination.

A day before the Titanic's demise, a woman on the infamous ship dreamt of the horrible event that was to occur the next day. She told her husband, who scoffed at her worries and ignored her pleas. However, the dream so affected her that she secretly prepared herself the night before and had all her children sleep in their warm clothes in order to be ready at a moment's notice. During the night, when the ship struck the iceberg, she and her children managed to escape and be rescued. Her husband, sadly, went down with the ship.

Hmmm....today I dreamed of Riley riding horseback, with a straight strong back. Healthy and vibrant. Maybe 20 years old.

: )

Oh Michelle, this is a very good omen. The horse symbolically represents the mythic vehicle which carries us through transitions (death rides a pale horse). The spine, straight back, the central magical core of any being, the spine where the kundalini rises up, our magical wand, housing of the spinal cord, and she's grown, and healthy and riding forward. Whew, the girl is going to make it, no doubt.

Your interpretation sends shivers up my spine!

Smiling in Cleveland!

Dreams are spooky! I've got chills now, too!

The Lincoln thing is very interesting, too, in that his image is being used in ads by that sleep drug, the one marketed with Lincoln playing chess with a beaver, saying, "Your dreams want you back."

I hope Stop-It doesn't get lost! After we lost our kitty, Tully, I had dreams nearly every night for a week that she came back. If only!

Stacy said...

Oh yeah! I love those Lincoln commercials, so funny.

I'm currently going through this stage where I don't really remember my dreams, but I'm waking up anxious.

Assume that's not really a good thing.
