Hi all, there has not been a lot of activity on this group recently and I don’t know how many folks are around, however I have a dream I’d love to get any feedback on. This is from two nights ago—the product of a very jet lagged brain. Here is the dream:
I am looking at a map of the world, traditional world map, flat. Suddenly night falls over the map and the map becomes like a deep dark green-black. I am situated off the map in a neutral, observer space. As night moves over the map (and the whole world becomes night at the same time, which I register in the dream as odd) the coastlines of the whole world become bright orange.
This bright orange represents turtle populations. For example, the Mediterranean is ringed with a thin band of orange on both the European and African coasts, California has a think band of orange reaching into the Pacific, etc. The seas around China, Japan, and India are almost fully orange, whereas for most of the rest of the world it is only a band just off the coastlines that has the turtles.
The whole map seems to pulse with turtle energy and the turtles are in motion—I can’t actually see individual turtles however am aware that the orange is pulsing and moving dynamically. All the turtles, I realize, plunge over a sea wall or kind of huge waterfall in the ocean, apparently to their deaths and there are these sea walls on the edge of every coast at the end of the orange bands. Actually, off of California I can see turtles plunging off the sea wall if I look at that part of the map—this is the only point in the dream I see any actual turtles. The dream is kind of breathtaking and again really dynamic. The world, at night, pluses with turtles; this is the main experience of the dream.
I have never had a dream of turtles as far as I can recall, although of course turtles are an ancient symbol associated with various creation myths for example. There is no hint of any mythology in the dream however, just pulsing turtle populations. The sea wall off of California is similar, perhaps identical, to an image from an earlier dream which found me swimming away from an encroaching, swirling, ocean.
Very curious if anyone has a reaction or impression from the dream.
Thank you to all,
