Guided By Spirit II – Kelly’s Response


Response to Spirit Guide –Lucid Dream interpretation

 By:  Kelly Beversdorf

YES the survival tips and finding paradise among the crazy chaos that is currently going on around me at present. I have sought a lot of information from my higher self, guides, and the Universe to help me move out of old patterns, ego’s negative talk, and enslaving beliefs about myself. This dream came after I had 2 very intense and heavy past life repressions about two men in my life that have affected me in a positive way. The only difference between the 2 past lives is one I felt free/loved and the other I felt like a slave/victim…the latter is currently affecting me in this life time.

The tips on survival apply to what is happening to me every day in the physical world (work, family, just living as Kelly in this life time) and the information I’ve been seeking from my Spirit Guide, Source, and my higher self. All the “tips” apply to each part of me, my life, and the lives of everyone around me. I do need to keep myself secure in basic needs, unconditional love, and support for myself…as well as being open to receiving those things from others who support me in the physical realms and the spiritual realms.

Trusting my intuition, learning to sense energy changes/shifts, and keep faith in myself/the Universe that everything will be fine and I am always safe…will cut down/eliminate my anxiety, depression, and panic I experience when I try to survive from a fear/ego place. Yes Kim I agree with your interpretation…the dream really resonates with me more now than when I first had it a few months back. Timing is everything…the message is so much clearer now. I notice that I have reoccurring themes/messages in my dreams like protection (Zak dream), seeking shelter in my faith(Zak dream), staying safe on my new journey(both Zak & Leachy plants), stay grounded(leachy plants), have unconditional love for myself(Zak dream), staying connected to Source, and keep exploring the dark mysterious part of myself. Thank you Kim for your dead on insight, unconditional love and support!! You are a key part in helping me discover my niche in this life…uncover the mystery.

THANK YOU!!!  

Guided By Spirit – Lucid Dreaming


lucid dream is any dream in which one is aware that one is dreaming. The term was coined by the Dutch psychiatrist and writer Frederik (Willem) van Eeden(1860–1932). In a lucid dream, the dreamer may be able to exert some degree of control over their participation within the dream or be able to manipulate their imaginary experiences in the dream environment. Lucid dreams can be realistic and vivid. It is shown that there are higher amounts of beta-1 frequency band (13–19 Hz) experienced by lucid dreamers, hence there is an increased amount of activity in the parietal lobes making lucid dreaming a conscious process. (source:  Wikipedia)

Kelly Beversdorf is a longtime dreamer of mine (see below for all her dreams)  She shares her dreams regularly, however, I’ve found Kelly’s dreams to be more detailed and vivid, than most of my dreams or  those of my regular clients.  I did some research and found, in fact, without knowing, Kelly is experiencing the beginnings of Lucid Dreaming.  This can happen when one is in a meditative state, or in such a relaxed state (like almost falling asleep).

I also believe Kelly experiences a visit by a Spirit Guide:

I consulted Monica Wilcox, from FemmeTales, and she states:

I would say the Indian woman is a spirit guide and appeared to show that she is with her. It strikes me that the dream if very much about how to position yourself for survival/enlightenment and maybe this guide came to show her that she is supporting her in this. I would recommend at the end of the reading that Kelly try and connect to this woman in meditation. 

 Take a look:  

The Dream

I’m hanging out with Leah and her brother Jonathan. Jonathan is telling me about surviving in all different U.S. climates. He said by sleeping in certain positions you can survive longer in extreme weather, something to do with gravity and our bodies energy system. He referenced that a Native American tribe traveled to every region of our country studying these survival sleeping habits and found successful results in every region but ours (the Ohio River Valley). Jonathan showed me one of the sleeping positions:  if you sleep with your head pointing towards a large body of water (lake or ocean) you will avoid having cold damp feet, thus not getting sick. He was telling me this in a very serious tone and way as if my life depended on it. He said the reason the Native American tribe was so unsuccessful in surviving in our area was because of our inconstant weather patterns.

We are sitting on my bed in my room and I notice there is a young Indian woman looking out my window. She is dressed in a brown dress, length is above her ankles, she has long beautiful black straight hair(its shiny), her hair is in pig-tails. The dress is made from animal hide. She had a thin leather head band on with a few small feathers standing up. She looked straight at me…into my eyes with her big brown eyes. She pointed her finger over her lips like she was wanting me to keep this a secret between us. I don’t know if Jonathan even saw her? While she is standing there Jonathan keeps talking about all the different sleeping positions…and demonstrating them. Its looks like Cirque De Soleil going on in the background while the Indian Woman and I locked eyes for what seemed like hours. When she disappeared I asked him to clarify what this tribe didn’t find a survival sleeping position for this area? He said he wasn’t sure, but suggested they didn’t make it here or they didn’t survive because of the constant unpredictable weather.

I’m walking down a familiar street. The full moon is out.  It is HUGE and it is beautiful: the kind of moon that literally takes up the entire sky. The fall leaves are at their most colorful, red, orange, yellow, purple, burgundy, golden, rusty orange, light greenish-yellow, and they are all sparking in the moon light. They are lit up like Christmas lights, and the street I’m walking down is lined up with big strong beautiful old trees with magnificent leaves. It’s like one of those light tunnels you might see during a Christmas light show in a park…but picture it as trees with every fall color you can imagine lit up by the moon. AMAZING!!! I’m walking through the tunnel of glowing trees and I see these 2 old snobby people complaining about everything & anything in the middle of this tunnel. These 2 people reminded me of the people I use to work for in an art gallery in Arizona last winter. I pass them, but they ask me where they can leave this tunnel. I tell them to figure it out themselves because I’m enjoying myself in this place, and ask them to stop stealing my joy. I keep walking on down the street/tree tunnel.  I get to an opened path way. So it’s not night-time any more, but day.

The sky is slightly overcast…very light gray skies high in the sky…not the looming clouds you’d see if there was rain coming. At the end of this path is a valley not a steep valley but a gentle slop. It’s very grassy, soft ground and there are people all kinds of people happily playing. It’s like a giant play ground for everyone not just kids…even dogs & cats are there having fun(in peace). There are buildings…brick buildings around the play ground they are a golden color with big windows. I see a parking lot…which is full of cars except one spot. All of the sudden the sky opens up…and rain comes down gently hitting my face, hair, and I start walking down the hill toward the play ground. People aren’t really alarmed…some go inside but some stay out in the rain. I see Jonathan pull into the one open parking space with Leah in the passenger side. They wave at me…their arms are out of the car windows waving big waves at me…”happy to see you” waves. I get to the car quickly and easily, I noticed in the window’s reflection the moon is still out full, huge, and beautiful…it’s behind me. Leah and Jonathan mention how cool and rare it is to have rain with not clouds and with the moon out. Okay I’ll add that the time prior to this moment I didn’t realize the moon was out…I thought it was the sun shining through the clouds which was making it so bright. I was WRONG! I agreed and smiled at them happy to share this awesome moment with my two friends. Jonathan takes his foot off the brake and the car rolls slightly over the black top into the grass, leaving mud tire marks and he ends up getting the car to back up and on the black top…no harm no foul!

The Interpretation

We discussed briefly this dream the other day.  I am convinced, that you were in a meditative state or lucid dreaming.  There are too many details in this dream to be a “conventional dream”

These dreams can still be interpreted, however, I think there is a higher power at work in this dream.  The traditional symbols are there Friends, places etc. however, there is, I am sure, a spirit guide (Native Woman) telling you a secret.. or showing you this dream to give you a message.

This secret has to do with Survival and paradise.. the inner paradise one can feel when at one with the Universe.  The valley seemed to me to be heaven.  Where all is at one and at peace.  Even the moon arriving through the rain is a moment of pure bliss..

Your friends, to me, represent unconditional love, support and help.  You can call on these friends anytime to help you to feel that you have a purpose here that you are trying to fulfill, and they will be your soul partners to cheer you on!

I totally love the Native Woman. I truly believe she is one of your spirit guides whom you can call on when needed.  I feel she has been there a long time by your side, and feels you are ready to receive this information about eternal life and the peaceful paradise you can have right here on earth.

She also appears to comfort you and to let you know that your past lives were not all negative, that there has always been people along your path who have loved you and supported you.. every single lifetime.. and she gave you a glimpse of heaven.. But its a secret.. between her and you.. The rest of the secret is only for you to discover..

John here seems to be in your dream to give you tips into “survival” into your new life.  Your life of being on your own, and being ok!  I think the “outdoorsy” way he is speaking about, is letting you know, that you have ways you can act and be, in order to always be safe.  Sleeping positions remind me of the basic needs.. when we are children, the foetal position is what keeps us safe.. even today when we are sad.

And your life does depend on this information.  If you choose a life of unconditional love and support for yourself, like Leah and John give you here.. you will live a life of purpose.  This tribe will make it.. because you will let yourself be guided into the right position.. (this also may be a tribe of a past you’ve once lived)

The tunnel of glowing trees (as you describe) gave me an overwhelming feeling of happiness.  This place, where you are in total bliss, allowed you to tap into yourself despite the snotty negative women.  This place resides within you.  You can tap into it whenever you feel there is negativity around you.. this is your “higher self” your spirit.. Go there often.

The moon, which according to Dreammoods,  represents some hidden, mysterious aspect of yourself, this makes total sense to me because it even comes out during a rain shower.  This mysterious aspect of yourself.. still needs to be discovered (secret of the Native woman).. and its up to you to find it!!! ( I think your course with Jen will help with this)

The parking lot being full except for one place:  I feel this place is left open for you.. for you to find your niche (the mystery)…

Your friends represent all who are cheering you on this path.  You can connect with them too when you feel down or disappointed.  I am cheering for you too.. and so are all the positive influences and people in your life.

The Valley represents the old and the new.  The valley with the gentle slope seems to represent the passage into this new life.. this new way of thinking, and a place to feel sheltered and protected.. or the need to feel sheltered and protected.

This dream / vision is powerful and very spiritual.. I could probably find more and more meaning, however, I think the secret is for you to discover.

NEW:  Kelly’s Response to this interpretation:

She is most definitely open to other dimensions, as guides, worlds and twin souls come to her in her dreams!   Fascinating.

Nothing is as it seems


We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.  ~Anaïs Nin

Earlier this week I introduced you to Monica Wilcox. (scroll to the bottom of the page for all her info!)  She wrote a guest post for Muse In The Valley:   Where World’s Collide, recounting the dream she had of her mom after her passing.

Today, I am presenting you with a recent interpretation I did for Monica, allowing me to delve into her subconscious.  Could this be a visitation dream of another kind?

The Dream

I was going to a high school reunion type dinner (I have this thing about H.S. dreams, don’t ask) and realized my date was a boy I did not like and did not want to go with. I was wearing a beautiful white gown with black flowers but thought is was too little girly for the event and wanted to go home and change. As I am trying to leave to go home a man walks up with a bouquet of exotic flowers. He’s come to “save my night” and be my date.

Here is the interesting part. I recognize him as a good friend I’ve dreamed of before. He has recently broke up with another mutual friend who is dating another guy I know. He would like to start dating another woman I know but she is unaware of this and…. The point is I consciously realized that I not only know him and his whole story from past dreams but a literal cast of other people we both know. I knew as much about these people from past dreams as I know about my family and friends in life. I realized I had had the previous episode of this dream the night before and this was a continuation. Anyway, I get the continuation dreams a lot (like the story just keeps going on, it’s not repetitive) but I didn’t realize until last night how long and how in depth I knew these “characters”. It was kind of crazy. Have any of you experienced this?

The Interpretation

(Note:  I have never experienced this kind of dream. However, I am discovering that some of my clients do an am in full research mode! )

Monica, I was wondering, since you have many High School dreams, including this one.. Maybe there are things in your past… (or past lives) that is unresolved and now is the time to face them.  The boy you do not want to go with may represent that side of you who resists going (where no Monica has gone before!)  … maybe there is a bit of fear there.

In the dress I see black and white, yin and yang, male/female.. like/dislike…  Since you find the dress “too girly” I am wondering if this has something to do with your feminine side.. What seems too girly in your life now?  Or.. is there some male aspects of yourself which want to come out.. Because you do say “I want to go home and change”… Going home?  Is that back to your spirit?  Change?  What changes have you been making or want to make lately?

The man with the exotic flowers!  I see here:  expressions of love, deep love and far away places (spirituality maybe?) or.. another dimension you are playing with.  I think this man represents acceptance of this.. and helps you cross over to this place.. with unconditional love.  He can also represent that loving side of you who is ready and willing to change and move forward.

The fact that you recognize this man.. and all the cast of your dream.. leaves me to believe that this is “knowledge” that you already know..  (re:  above)  These people may have been on your path before and are all in your dream to remind you to where you are going.  You recognise what you already know!! and I think there will be more revelations to you in the next few weeks.  So keep me posted!

The message I got for you,  at the end, when I finished reading your dream is:

Everything is not all black and white!  (there is a huge grey area).. and Nothing is as it seems.. 

Monica’s Response

I’ve never had anyone interpret my dreams before so it’s a treat. I totally agree with your overall message: Nothing is as it seems. That could be the title. (thanks for the idea Monica!!)  I also feel like the “man” is a spirit I have known for a long time who comes and goes, we know each other’s history and he shows up to give me some support. Weather he is a living spirit who dream jumps with me or someone who is in spirit and comes to me from a spiritual plain…not sure. I will say that the majority of my H.S. years were filled with boys who liked me but I had no interest in. The boys I liked were usually clueless, shy, or not interested. Maybe there is a part of me that feels like I’m stuck with something I’m not interested in??? Thanks Kim!! This gives me a lot to think about.

Conclusion

Do you think Monica has a guide or a soul mate visiting her? Maybe souls she already knows visit her in her dreams, thus, the reason she is recognizing them? Leave your thoughts in the comment section.

Thank you for your awesome feedback!
