Does TIME exists while we dream?
Why do we have this attraction for going beyond TIME?
I’ve written several articles on the topic of TIME. The reasons are because I have on several occasions moved beyond time while my body was sleeping. l can differentiate my 'predictive' dreams from my 'regular' dreams, so the first predictive dream that I will share with you in this hub, has been documented in my dream journal at the time when I dreamed it.
Before I share my personal dream about an event that at the time made no sense, I need to add a short review on the movie we saw last week titled: LUCY, a 2014 science fiction action film directed, written and edited by Luc Besson, and produced by Europacorp.
At the end of this action packed movie the voice of Lucy says: “without time the third dimension reality does not exist” For me that was a profound statement at the end of the movie and I feel this to be true.
Some of our dreams feel very real
I started my own dream journal during the eighties. I had trained myself to wake up from a dream in order to write it down in a journal on my bedside table. It was interesting and sometimes an eye-opener when I read over my scribbles from the weeks before.
My own dreams are often film clip like stories of my mind, where I passively "look at" myself as an observer. I’m very much playing a role in my dream. Some of my dreams I clearly remember are of a reality in another time-space continuum.
In my novel: Parallel Worlds Tulanda shares in her journal how she is aware of two realities at the same time.
Our physical perception level only registers what our five senses tell us, but it’s our sixth sense that belongs to that aspect of us which functions on a vibrational level where our mind, dreams, intuition and thoughts are also actively involved. If we imagine that there is a parallel universe, or maybe parallel universes in co-existence with ours then they can indeed be entwined with ours, but they only exist in other dimensions.
In my article: When dream visions become real I shared the outcome of another predictive dream I had.
I often ask for proof
The subject of Time and having a Déjà vu or dreams that have some element of future prediction in them, it was my own experiences that ignited my desire to search for the answer to my question. Are we controlled by TIME while we dream?
In my passionate search for truth, either through the dreams that I remember, something I read, or a YouTube movie about ancient Egypt, it’s often through my intent and focus that I often stumble onto situations that only much later start to make total sense.
My dream journals until 1986 were gone
I so remember waking up early in the morning from a rather stupid dream. I could still see myself pulling plastic away from a silver pendant over a flame. The setting was also very strange. I was with my husband and two children in the back garden of a Dutch couple we hardly knew but who lived nearby.
That same morning, after I had made a note of the dream in my dream journal, I told my husband again about it because in my dream the whole event was so real. I couldn’t understand why it felt the way it did. I could still see how the heat from the flame melted the pinkish plastic away from a silver ten gulden coin pendant. Why had I dreamed such a funny situation?
My husband was getting dressed to go to work in our bedroom and shrugged it off saying:
“You and your dreams.”
He never remembered any of his dreams and if I sometimes shared with him about mine, especially when I tried to analyze them. He used to comment that he did not believe in any of that nonsense.
He could not imagine us all having a barbeque in the back garden of the Dutch couple I mentioned since they were a rather odd couple, very imposing and opinionated. It was also weird about me removing plastic away from a silver pendant.
What was the meaning of the flame and the jewellery?
Four months later
I had come back from visiting my parents in Holland three weeks before. They had paid for my airline ticket to give me a break away from my full time job managing my gift shop.
A good friend of mine had looked after my shop The Prickly Pear and my daughter would help her out after school.
On that Thursday back in the shop at a quiet moment I prayed, asking for direction in my life. I knew and sensed that my life was heading down a wrong path, and after my oversees visit I had to make drastic decisions how to turn my rather unhappy marriage around.
After surrendering to the will of the divine I Am from within, I felt a lot better. I had sincerely asked that any changes would have to be for the good of all, so I had to let go and have faith in the outcome.
Years later I often say to people: “Be aware of what you ask for.”
Be aware what you ask for!
Burned down kitchen
Losing everything you own through a fire
I’ve often asked myself, had I asked for my house to go up in smoke? The newspapers were full of the fire in Albert road the next day.
I will not repeat what happened that never to be forgotten afternoon because anyone can read about our fire by clicking on the link, so I will take our story from the moment we stayed for three weeks at the home of a family that lived a few streets down.
Our home had a mortgage and was therefore insured, but the content was grossly under insured.
The next morning after the fire we went back to our ruin to see if there was anything we could still salvage from the rubble. Our dogs were also happy to play in their own back garden. Our garage was freestanding so that escaped the blaze.
Trespassers will be prosecuted
The real shock when we arrived at our property was finding total strangers at our property picking through the rubble! My husband chased them all away and painted with big letters “trespassers will be prosecuted”.
We knew whereabouts some valuable jewellery might have been buried under the roof rubble, so we started digging. The dogs were also doing their bit and we wondered why, until we saw what they were after – cooked chicken and potatoes where the kitchens used to be. Our stove was totally melted into a funny shape and so was the fridge. The heat had been the hottest in the kitchen, and I remembered that I left an oil pan on the stove where I had deep fried Samoosas before going shopping. Had I not turned off the stove?
We were all separately interviewed by the insurance company that held the policy of our home that day. We were not prepared for that, but we seemed to have satisfied them, because the investigators said that the fire had started in the roof and due to the oil pan on the stove. The flames had gone down the hole in the ceiling above the stove where there was not yet an extractor fan installed.
Have you ever had a Déjá vu?
Having a Déjà vu
Deep under the rubble of our bedroom where I kept my jewellery I found a partly burned wooden box where melted blobs revealed that some jewellery in plastic boxes had been stored.
That evening back at our friends place the husband prepared a barbeque in their back garden, while we were looking at all the findings of a day. When I showed the half silver pendant that was partly covered by pink plastic goo, someone suggested I held it above a flame from an candle to see if I could pull it away. At that moment I had a Déjà-vu, and at the same time my husband uttered in stunned surprise.
“Your dreamed that!”
Because out of body experiences occur while the person is apparently asleep, I knew then that the boundaries of time and space as they are known do not exist while we are in our body.
