I had this dream last night that publishers clearing house came to my door with the balloons and the check, you know all the "your Americas next Millionaire" whoohooo... then over the camera man's shoulder I saw in the distance a mushroom cloud forming....
The dream freaked me out mainly because I have for as long as I can remember, had dreams about future events, that due to the future being un-defined (perceptions change as events unfold so even though you think you can define what you'd see in the future, the reality is you are void of all the experiences that would complete the perception definition (too deep?)..
at any rate most of my "vivid" dreams have come true often just the way I dreamed them (I once had a dream I was a billionaire too but still waiting on that one to unfold)...
But can you imagine, finally, the PCH sweepstakes stops by and you notice that oops someone shot a nuclear bomb at us and well this money is useless to me now? If I survive the radiation at all... I hate dreams like this.
That is quite freaky. But it could mean a number of things other than mushroom clouds in the future. For instance, it's possible that current events have you very worried, maybe even subconsciously, and you may feel as though they're infringing on your personal happiness.
It could also be a reflection of a pessimistic attitude. I don't know you personally, so I don't mean to imply anything. Just throwing out possibilities.
As a side note, I very much enjoyed your views on perceptions changing as events unfold. Well-worded and well-considered.
You are cleaver! O.k. I confess I know what this means.. I'm deep into dream interpretation and have been using my dreams to figure out those pesky subconcious hidden fears etc.. I even use tarot to decode my dreams as tarot cards simply land based on the minds own formula- Pictures...
Long story short...
My dream symbolized both my dream of massive success and my fear of - Massive success.
I've always had what it took to make alot of money, I know what to do, I have done it before actually, but I think I fear how money would change me in a lot of ways. The mushroom cloud stands for destruction, annialation of my current self, in alot of ways I'm holding myself back because I know I have this side of me that is selfish, greedy, but it doesn't surface right now, but when I had money before it did, in fact I wasn't a bad person, I was very generous and didn't keep a tight wad on my money but there were times when people were decietful to friends of mine and I , always protecting the underdog, found myself aquiring too much power to deal with these people because I knew how to use resources to put them in their places.
The thing I'm most afraid of is my intellegence.. it sounds vain but it isn't. I'm smart enough to get into peoples heads and screw with their self esteem, now I don't do this, but when I become upset I think I can lose control of my rational mind, the forum is proof of my wrath... I think I still need to work on myself humbly before I really hit the big time because well let me put it to you in a metaphore fantasy.
Let's say people could use telekenisis (moving things with your mind)... would you want this ability without being able to control your emotions? No because you'd lose it on someone and could push them accidentally over a cliff, you could make them fall backwards down some stairs, or you could simply put undue fear in the minds of others because you can't control your gift enough to not want to show others (some would think it was cool, others would be afraid of you, if you've seen the movie Phenominon you know what I mean, hell Heroes the series is another good example)
My thing isn't that dramatic but I am well aware that I'm afraid of aquiring alot of money although I want to so badly as well.. this dream symbolized my fear and desire into one place for me and I could clearly see what is holding me back. I hesitate at key points when it comes to success, I become easily distracted although all the way up I was intensely focused.. I fear now that I'll always start a great thing but won't finish it to frutation, this is one reason I try to enlist others to join me in things like the Hubpages site I was creating. I intuitively know with a bunch of people depending on me to do it I will surpass my own fears and do it (for them not me) and it will get done.
The problem here is that I want them aboard so badly (so I can get it done and because I want to help them succeed as well as their success breeds my own) that I think I sell it too much, or I become impatient when people don't respond.. My desperation is in needing others to become a part of things so I can bypass my fears and find success. I've always wanted others to share success with as well, its no fun being the only rich guy in the room, nobody else can relate, they either want your money so are fake, or they are jealous of your money and won't open up to you, accept you as part of their world.. with a team effort where everyone wins makes money etc.. its great!
The irony is that I haven't been able to successfully get people on board. With this site thing I'm going forward with it anyway as I know people will see it and jump on board later... I've had alot of dreams where I had millions of dollars (unhindered) in some I believe I'm seeing my future self (I have alot of precognition dreams that happen and force me to feel dejavue then I remember the event happening in my dream and feel a shock)..
ok I've babbled on enough
p.s. thank you for your assessment, you were right!
Well of course we all know the poles are going to reverse in 2012 so maybe your dream has a kernel of truth....
(note to the anxious - actually the New Scientist now reckons it won't cause any trouble after all)
Rochelle, we'll still be "Down Under" - it's just that a compass will point south for north, and north for south. The Earth won't turn turtle, it's the magnetic field that will switch.
Of course, there's no guarantee it will happen in 2012 it's just what some scientists are predicting. The Earth has switched poles several times and it hasn't happened for 73,000 years so it's definitely on the horizon. Our magnetic field gets very weak while it's happening and they were concerned that we'd all die from radiation (because we normally rely on the field to protect us) but it looks like that won't be the case (let's hope!!)
Yea and what scientists aren't telling us is that the only reason we can't all fly, move objects with our mind, or clearly use our telepathic powers, is because a million years ago the poles shifted (gods practical joke)...
when they shift back the series "Heroes" will be us.. we'll all have these powers... will be like when you put the batteries in a device wrong and it don't work then you switch them around and it does.
With all the fear of god in all these churches and other organization that need us all to be "turned off" they are worried that people will realize we don't need them and will start to think for ourselves, so they started connecting all these prophetic things and launching history channel shows about the 2012 disaster coming... all the prophecies however were not about us, but the time they were made (having nothing to do with the future)...
I like this explanation as it makes more sense than the hogwash the media is feeding us... ah but what if this change in polarity IS what unlocks our power? what if those people who could do these things were just born "backwards" bioelectrically? hmmmm makes you think huh?
OK-- so write the hub about pole shifting.
Our compasses will be confused, though-- right?
What about communications sattelites and things that use gyroscopes-- any effects there?
I wish I could, but I'm not a scientist. The topic is only in my head because I was reading a New Scientist in a coffee shop the other day ( I was bored, OK?) and came across it. Maybe there's another Hubber out there with enough knowledge to explain it?
Here's a link with a bit of info
