Several months ago I had a powerful dream about a friend, who died a few hours after the dream. I had another dream about him, 108 days later, in which he is still bleeding through the tubes and wounds sustained in a terrible car accident. In the dream, I also have open cuts on my left hand, which I place on his heart. A nurse comes in and spills his medicine tray, scattering the translucent, golden pills on the floor. As I am picking them up, the nurses get him dressed and walk him down the hall, as he shakes his head, looking frustrated.
To me, the message of the dream is that his wounds are not healing and he’s not getting the support or medicine that he needs. 108 is a sacred number in Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Numerology, Ayurveda, Martial Arts, Astronomy and Physics. 108 is the number of beads on a prayer mala, and is also significant in the spacial relationship between the sun and the moon. The message is that he needs prayers to help him on his way as he travels on in his spiritual journey.
At the end of this month, we will enter into the time of Scorpio, ruler of death, secrets, and mysteries. Since this is the time when the veils between the worlds are the most permeable, our seasonal journeying group will focus on this, opening to those who may want to help us, or who need our help. I will be working to contact my friend, to see how I can be of assistance to him, since he asked me through my dream.
If you have a desire to connect on this level and more, you are welcome to join us on October 29. Robert Moss will also be offering a 13 week online class Shamanic Journeying to the Other Side: Communicate with the Departed & Make Death Your Ally, which I will be taking part in and offering a small study group to experience together.
