What is with these dreams?
I had a dream this morning that I was attending a BBQ. I was still eating RAW in my dream and wasn't tempted. Other people in the dream were eating meat which doesn't bother me - to each his own, but then I saw that they were cooking a special kind of fish and the fish was alive while they were cooking them! I was absolutely horrified. When I tried to talk to them about what they were doing, everyone just laughed as if it were entirely normal.
Before going RAW I had never even been a vegetarian, so I have been eating meat all my life. This dream really came out of the blue and I am not sure if this is some kind of change of conciousness that I am having or what, but I did find it really confusing!
Oh well, just wanted to share what is going on in my RAW journey.
When I was doing really well on raw I also had some very odd dreams. They weren't about food, but rather like this:
In one dream I looked down at my right arm and it was MASSIVE. Like hugely muscled... and I'm a girl so it was very odd... but didn't "seem" odd in my dream. I figured that it meant I was feeling strong hehe.
In another dream I was feeling around my foot, and I just "knew" that I had steel chips in there. This is a hazard where I work if you don't wear your shoes... which I like to wear slippers Anyways I decided to push on my feet to force the steel chips out of my foot. At first I got a pretty big one, about an inch in length. And the second one was just crazy big. It was like a hack saw blade coming out. LOL. Totally retarded I know. but to me it seemed like a metaphore of the detox that I was going thru at the time.

That is really cool. I like your detox dream.
That is great. I have dreams every once in a while where I am aware that I am dreaming. I really enjoy them. I have even had some nightmares where I am aware, which is quite good because it let's me change the mood to something more positive. I wish that it happened more often though since it is quite fun.
I used to have really strange dreams when I ate cooked, but after going raw, I have only had a few strange dreams, usually food dreams, but not always.
Often I have detox dreams too, or dreams where I am thin, and thinking back on how long I've been raw, and rejoicing in the fact that I am not only thin, but young again too.

Dreams are weird, though....
I have strange dreams ALL the time, and am about to take some courses in dream interpretation. We actually have to journal our dreams, give the intrepretation, and are graded....
Hello RP: I think that you seem very young. Your writing seem very open and full of passion for life. If that isn't young then I don't know what is.
SwishTN: That is hilarious! You are going to be graded on your dreams? That gives an entirely different meaning to having a bad dream.
Well, the interpretation of it is.... (graded)
Yet, It is also understood that the application of a dream can have both a personal meaning, and a national, global, political, You name it......
Two people don't always get the same thing....
It's a class based on the premise that God speaks to us in our dreams... I am trying to write more of them down, although, I do believe that a lot of mine are detoxing emotions, and even thoughts from the day...
One time during a dream, I had an encounter with a guy who had really hurt me, and I purposely changed the attitude of the dream so that I could shake the yuck that it left me feeling toward him. I hate feeling yuck towards people, yet sometimes it's harder to shake off, especially when you've known them for a LONG time...
The other night I dreamt that I was pregnant, I was in transit, and was even with aliens .... I didn't want the baby, and was hoping it would go away, although I was very obviously very much pregnant... And then, in my dream, a vision of my son at about 5 or so floated on the scene..... How strange is that? I repented for not wanting him, and began blessing him instead. (BTW, I am not married, nor "active", so I KNOW KNOW KNOW, that I am not pregnant, really)
I think that dream came b/c my conversation right before the dream was w/my aunt discussing how this woman, who already had one son, found out she was pregnant with twins. She became mad and she said she wanted only one son...... Apparently she was pretty angry.... Well, when the twins were born, she got only one son! (one died, or came out depending on machines, so they took him off life support). The other twin died when he was two for unknown reasons. So, my aunt and I were discussing the power of our words.... And using these boys as an example. Do you think it somehow got into my dreams?
Dreams are powerful! Kings and nations have been predicted and thrown down in them!!! My friend dreamt about the twin towers before it happened!!
Night, all! Sweet dreams : )
