I chant, over and over, “I am one I am whole I reclaim the parts of my soul I’ve left behind, or have been taken from me.” This goes on for a while. A crown appears on my head that stretches up to the heavens. A warm glow encompasses my heart. I look down, and see I have six arms: two folded across my belly, two in front of me, and two reaching out to connect with nature. I look down at my hands and they are emitting a golden light. All of my hands are doing this. I start thinking about Rollo May’s “Three modes of existence” (I had been thinking about this in waking life the day before)… The warm vortex surrounding my heart feels like my “own world” of self-- phenomenological, subjective. My hands across my belly support this space. In the trees and mountains surrounding a lake, a dynamic up and down pattern helps me feel connected to the natural “world around” me. My outstretched hands reach toward this connection. I think about my interpersonal and social interactions in the “with world” and feel how important those interwoven exchanges are. The hands in front of me prepare to give, receive, and heal. These three modes take form in and around me as I stand still at the center. There is a light breeze and I feel a deep calm. I sit on a throne in the forest, and the characters of The Alphabliss of Miss arrive and sit in a semi-circle at my feet. I recite their names alphabetically. One of them starts to glow… (The ally I needed most at the time of this dream, Marika who knows how to wait.) I awake feeling I can be present, hold space for, and help others. I feel thankful for this dream.
