I used to dream a lot and very vivid. And no matter how weird my dreams seemed to be, they had a message or lesson for me. Then I made the mistake to buy myself a stone named Tektite (http://mycrystalpedia.wordpress.com/t/tektite/). Better said my mistake was to wear this stone around my neck whilst sleeping because I thought it would heighten my ability to dream. I ended with a total blackout, cramps and a major headache. I tried it again the next night to see if it was just a coincidence and exactly the same happened again. That was when I found out that you should not even keep this stone in the same room during nights. So the result was, that from this night I did not remember my dreams at all in the morning – I could not even tell if I did dream something. Everything was black, like if the stone had ereased my ability to dream.
Almost a year later it’s still very hard for me to remember my dreams, so it was quite a surprise to wake up and recall a dream. A very weird one, I’d like to share today.
In my dream I have been on my way to work – but actually it was not Vienna what I saw around me but most likely LA. I’ve never been to LA in my life, I can only tell from the feeling I had that I was there. And I also could feel that it was not my actual job I was heading to. But I decided that I had to get another tattoo. Right here and right now because of the strong urge I had about it. So I headed into the next tattoo parlor and the tattoo artist actually was an actor (which is tattooed a lot but also seems to be a very confused guy so I definitely never ever would let him come close with a tattoo needle to my body). However, I told him about my feeling and he said I am lucky, he’s got a free spot and can do the tattoo right away. The tattoo I needed to get was two words: MOON WOMAN. Only the outlines of the letters written in a font called “Copper Black”. It only took like two minutes to get that done and I walked outside with my new tattoo, right over my hipbone on the right side of my body.
Mission completed I walked towards ‘my’ workplace until I ran into a male co-worker. Well… I thought that’s all he is until he kissed me and I realized that this co-worker obviously is my boyfriend too. As if the tattoo guy looking like an actor wasn’t enough, also my boyfriend/co-worker looked like an actor. He asked me where I am heading and I said breakfast, so he asked why I’m not going to a place where all of us are going. I could convince him to not join the others but to head in the other direction and have breakfast – just the two of us. I told him about my new tattoo and wanted to show him so I opened my pants a bit to reveal the letters and suddenly they had turned into big bold letters, the outlines now filled in dark black. I looked down my leg and there now were four additional lines in different fonts – two and two. Two different sayings or poems tattooed in different fonts, up from my hip down to my ankle.
That’s when I woke up. I wish I could remember what the additional lines said but I can’t. I could read it in my dream but when I woke up it was gone. All I know is that the lines did not fit together at all and the tattoo just looked awful.
Welcome to my weird brain… 😉
