A dream about longing

Before bed last night, I quieted my heart with prayer, spoke to my
ancestors with gratitude and asked to be given a vision of longing. I
did this after reading the Power Wheel section on Longing. This is my
dream:
It was a place where there were many kinds of people, old and young
and in between. We needed water. This was a place were everyone ended
up, from a place where we were confined–a crazy house, mental ward, a
place where we were herded and watched. At one point in this new
place, I was a child and there was an old woman who could not get up
and I bent over to help her. Then the call went up for water again, we
needed a source to be able to survive in this new place. I went with
others outside the confines of the new place, which was like a
neighborhood with sidewalks and houses. We found green grass and
followed it to trees and then there was a puddle of water with narrow
rivulets that wound through the trees. The sun became bright and the
sound of water was all around us. There was a huge striated rock with
bright white quartz running through it horizontally. The rock was wide
and tall but had easy hand and foot holds. It was flat on top and
there were people sitting and squatting on the wide flat surface in
the sun. The water in this place was crystal clear, so clear that I
could see smooth small stones and pebbles on the bottom. Someone said
the water might be brackish, but I tasted it and it was cool and
sweet. Then my dream shifted to images I could not make sense of and
gradually I came awake.

The Eagle and Peacock

I was a passenger sitting in the front seat of a car. When I looked out the window on the right, I saw a bald eagle flying over a city skyline. As I looked more closely, I noticed it was carrying a brown peahen ( over twice its size) with its talons. Because of the…

A dream of the shadow?

Dogs in their Place
