I was outside on what felt like the roof of an office tower block, I could see there was more building above us. The building was near the sea in a built up and busy area.
I was sitting on a high backed chair, woven with willow and I couldn't learn. A young man in his thirties was trying, patiently, to teach me something and I couldn't learn it. I was worried about this. But he kindly said that I shouldn't worry because there was more to life than I knew. Someone would be coming to show me, very soon.
A moment later a woman came. She was in her 60's with blonde hair all wavy and beautiful. The web of wrinkles on her face held a wide smile in place. A gentle smile. A knowing smile. We talked about diamonds. I told her that I regretted having so many diamonds in my life. That it was a weakness and it was only when I was prevented from having more diamonds that I gave them up. She said nothing mattered now. There is more to life than you know. Look....
She held her arm out as though to peel back a curtain. That is what it was. Our world was a curtain which just needed to be opened to see the 'more to life than we know'. The beautiful lady took my hand and her smile led me into the other space. We stepped through and into, what I can best describe as, Christmas. A warm place of dark reds and greens and the secret sparkle of gold deep in the shadows.
I stood in awe. Soaking the feel of the room into my bones. Without being aware of it she stepped us back out and the curtain closed. She had gone but my teacher was still there, smiling warmly at me, head cocked to one side, arms out for a hug. I lost myself in that hug. I felt released and happy.
Then the alien invasion happened. We looked over the balcony out to the sea and saw the ship coming. Saucer shaped, of course, with sides that folded round making a hook effect. It swooped down and skimmed the sea to help slow itself down. It seemed to ricochet off the ocean and fly up into the air towards us. The sound as it flew passed threatened to tear my brain out. An electric ripping of the air around us.
We had been so enthralled at the sight and so in shock from the sound that we failed to notice the alien creature floating behind us on the other side of the balcony. It fired an electric blue shot at us that seemed to miss, but I don't know how. We ran past it, back to where I had stepped through the curtain. Waiting for us were 5 more aliens. Beautiful elongated human forms but instead of flesh and bone they looked like they were made of diamond. Dazzling Electric blue and white, sparkling from within a powerful energy field that surrounded them all. They were holding something. I heard them say something but the noise from their energy field had pierced my mind like a gale force wind. The next thing I remember is waking up in a cold metallic chair surrounded by this energy field. The noise, so loud, intense, electric, threatening to make me pass out again.
I see a man, that I somehow know is able to step through the curtain into other dimensions. He has stepped out of his chair and is trying to speak with the aliens. They do not understand and instead put a creature on his head. An ugly, octopus type thing with huge crystalline eyes and 5 stumpy tentacles, suckering, to his skin.
Then I woke up.
It makes me laugh that aliens came!
I'd be interested in anyone's thoughts on this dream. 10 years ago I used to practice Lucid dreaming and did, in fact wake up in the middle of this dream to say goodbye to Leo. It's the second time I've done this recently without trying.
I LOVE DREAMING!!!!!
