Re: The Night I Possessed A Secret Society Bimbo
I've been thinking about another possibility regarding your dream.
But first, just one block to your consideration of this possibility might be [not saying it is, but this idea is floating around the 'new age' sites] that you may believe that angels/demons and good/evil are illusory. That is, that they are merely our own mental projections and are not objectively real. My own interpretation of my own experience forces me to disagree with that. I accept the truth that all beings, and all good and evil created by beings, are emanations of the ALLGod. And that from the highest perspective of the ONE.... all is ONE. Yes. But that's only because the ONE is aware of ITSELF as the ESSENCE of all things at inner levels. At outer levels there is manifest evil in the material universe (created not by the ALLGod, but by beings with freewill, who fell into duality consciousness) and so evil must be reckoned with by souls incarnate in the material planes. Evil cannot be transmuted and transcended by denying it's manifestation. In the lower planes, where we are now most conscious, we yet deal with evil, in ourselves and others, and that the only way to triumph over duality consciousness (in it's many forms) is to unite with our higher- Self which is our God consciousness. The higher- Self is our soul's refuge (in the divine powers) of absolute GoOD and IT is the antidote to absolute evil in the lower planes.... wherever it appears.
Anyway, that's something to munch on while considering where i'm coming from with my interpretation of your dream. But only insofar as it explains my firm belief that evil is a force to be dealt with in the planes of matter. True, from the perspective of essence, evil is not ultimately real. But we must prove that by allowing our inner-Self to defeat it's manifestation in ourselves.... and wherever else it manifests as a force opposing the higher- will within us. That said, you might still consider my questions speculative.
[Edit] ...[ i just read your reply to capitan. Don't know how i missed that. But looks like you accept that freewill beings inhabit other realms and act as they will. They can go no higher than the subtle material planes (only lower ones) and cannot enter the planes of spirit without "the wedding garment" (the light body). The thing we seem to differ on is that i believe that beings who are one with their spiritual- Self cannot be successfully opposed by beings who are not. These beings may have powers but they are as nothing compared to spiritual beings who are ONE with the light of spirit.]
I believe the higher- Self can give you a dream that approximates what you were really doing while your body slept. In the form of a dream, your higher- Self can reproduce a scenario that closely resembles your real activities while you're soul travelled out of the body during sleep. It may be that your HS impressed (in an instant) the whole scenario on your etheric body (your memory body) and your brain, so that you would have a point of reference in your outer waking awareness for an even higher experience which your HS will not yet reveal.
Pinkrylq, You referred in your dream to your powers to direct light rays (from your solar plexus chakra} at threatening entities to disable them.... and to 360 degree spherical visioin.... and your ability to focus your own consciousness to inhabit the body of the agressors to disable them.... and to "be" in those bodies and anywhere else in an instant.... and basically, your perfect knowledge of your essential threat environment to be anywhere instantly ( because you were aware of everywhere simultaneously). These are all real powers and faculties of the soul under the direction of the higher- Self. They are not simply dream fodder produced by the mental body. For the purposes of your battle environment you displayed Omniscience ( All Knowingness), Omnipresence (everywhere present) and Omnipotence (everywhere potent). These powers are well documented (as the Divne Attributes of God... east and west) and are an absolute winning combination to easily defeat any lesser manifestation of consciousness (ie,,, the vibration of evil).... embodied or disembodied. This is why the spiritual adepts are invulnerable. They can employ their power in any plane of activity, consciously and at will. To them, the whole material universe is a dream in which they are fully lucid / conscious and fully adept because they know all it's laws.
If i said to you that there are spiritual beings who are constantly 'at work' in the lower astral and lower mental planes defending us from attacks by astral entities and who employ the consciousness and powers you displayed in your dream, would you believe it? And that the occasional attacks against us which we do experience, are allowed to happen only to show us the reality of these threatening astral forces? [or for karmic reasons]. I know for sure that these friendly spiritual beings exist and that they do this work on our behalf. Is it thinkable to your mind, that you are a part of their number, and you are being assisted to relearn and re- use your latent power (long forgotten) to engage in battle again on behalf of vulnerable souls? And that, that is what in fact you were doing in your soul consciousness on that night? and perhaps other nights you've forgotten?.... the memory completely sealed? The real scenes of your soul's nocturnal activity, being shielded from your outer awareness by impressing a dream upon you (on this occasion) to familiarise your 'waking' self with your expanded consciousness.... to better integrate the experience at all levels and to give you confidence in your ability?
You also had interactions with a wiser Self which makes sense in this scenario because your soul is not yet fused permanently together. But you got your encouragement. You are "on the side of the Light".... And that sister, is no mere illusion of duality.
Your answer to questions like mine may simply be... "Anything's possible i suppose. I don't know for sure what it all means". I just wanted to add these thoughts into the pot and also thank you for recording your dream so lucidly for us. You virtually disappeared for months after i arrived, or so it appeared, and i wish you hadn't now. Thanks pink. And don't listen to titmouse. I'm much, much nicer than he thinks.
