This is an unusual dream because it involves something most of us do not like to do: surrendering control. It is something we all will do when we die; the question is whether or not we will practice doing so before. I hope that it will inspire you to make such a practice a priority in your life.
What are three fundamental life issues that you are dealing with now in
1. Getting the Los Alamos Deep Democracy Open Forum incorporated and launched
2. Connecting meaningfully with each of my children and friends
3. Retiring from bus driving
Tell me a dream you remember… (Or, choose a strong feeling or
I am on the road (at night) driving with an older colleague in the passenger seat who has just suggested that we turn north after we pass the gorge up ahead. But I realize with some alarm that I now cannot see the road or the striping and so don’t even know if I’m in the right lane–or even on the proper side of the highway! I say to him, “I cannot see the road. Please take over the wheel.” He doesn’t seem to understand and does nothing. I say again with more urgency, “I cannot see the road. Please take over the wheel!!” I feel him take it over and begin to relax as I slowly come awake. [Whew!]
Why do you think that you had this life experience?
I am on a spiritual journey of epic, ancient and prophetic significance and I trust in a greater influence to lead me where life and eternity can be experienced meaningfully and deeply.
If it were playing at a theater, what name would be on the marquee?
Heading North in the darkness.
These are the characters in the experience…
Car, companion passenger, road, darkness, road striping, traffic (coming in opposite direction), gorge,
If a character had something especially important to tell you, which
would it be?
Companion passenger, would you please tell me what you look like and what you
I have been with Eugene before in various guises: Brother White Shirt; Rex Mitchell, wife Birgitta
What do you like most about yourself in this experience? What are your
I am loyal and resourceful, here to help and protect Eugene in his journey.
What do you dislike most about yourself? Do you have weaknesses? What?
I may be a little hard of hearing, but I do not dislike anything about myself.
If you could change this experience in any way you wanted, would you?
If so, how would you change it?
Why should anything change? It is unfolding as it should.
If that experience were to continue, what would happen next?
Eugene and I would turn North after passing the gorge up ahead. There is a bridge across it, so it is merely a landmark.
Companion passenger, if you could be anywhere you wanted to be and take any
form you desired, would you change? If so, how?
(You are in Eugene’s dream, correct? He
created you, right?)
Yes I am in Eugene’s dream, but he has not created me entirely. There is an important part of me that is beyond his imagination, which he is sensing he needs to rely on.
Companion passenger, what aspect of this person do you represent or most
His connection with Spirit
If you could live Eugene’s waking life for him, how would you
live it differently?
I am here to make suggestions, not take control. Although for the moment he has asked that I take the wheel of the car he is driving on a temporary basis–until he can see the road again–until he can see his own way.
If you could live this person’s waking life for him today, would
you handle his/her three life issues differently? If so, how?
Not for me to do.
What three life issues would you focus on if you were in charge of
Not for me to do.
How would you score yourself 0-10, in confidence, compassion, wisdom,
acceptance, peace of mind, and witnessing? And why?
Confidence: 10 I am from Spirit–the angelic realm–that he is in touch with.
Compassion: 10. Again, I am his spiritual companion and most interested and concerned about him.
Wisdom: 10. I am from the wisdom of Spirit.
Acceptance: 10. Totally so.
Peace of Mind: 10. I bring it with me.
Witnessing: 10. I have been with him always and see the bigger picture of his life.
Companion passenger, if you scored tens in all six of these qualities, would
you be different? If so, how?
As I am
How would this person’s life be different if he naturally scored
high in all six of these qualities all the time?
He is close to this state, with some lapses, such a panic in the ocean off Bimini and not seeing in this dream.
In what life situations would it be most beneficial for Eugene to
imagine that he is you and act as you would?
In any stressful time.
Why do you think that you are in this dream)?
To give him comfort, assurance and protection.
Companion passenger, what have you heard yourself say?
I am on a journey with spirit guiding and leading.
If this experience were a wake-up call from your soul, what do you
think it would be saying to you?
Keep going, dear one. Do not worry about what’s coming. It will flow before you and into you as it is meant to be.
