Have you ever had a dream that was so real, so intense, and so otherworldly that you awoke convinced that it was a message meant to be shared with the world? A dream that felt more like a spiritual vision than an ordinary dream?
As I write this, I have just woken up from such a dream.
I dreamed that I met seven gurus who traveled around the cosmos in an old, beat-up 70s-style van. I was walking in a park, when suddenly they pulled up beside me, and asked me to get in the van. I got into the van, a course of action that I do NOT recommend if this ever happens to you in real life! However, it all worked out ok in the dream.
Once inside, they asked me to chant with them. The chant was seven words of power:
- Darn (rhymes with yarn)
- Dehar (De-HAY-har)
- Kushu (coo-shoo)
- Kehar (CAY-har)
- Dram* ( “a” as in calm or palm)
- Dam* (rhymes with Dram above)
- Vishnu (The Hindu god’s name)
In addition to chanting it several times, they also made me write it down. Even though I memorized it in my dream, when I woke up, I couldn’t quite remember the last three words. Vishnu (the word) came to me as I chanted it after I woke up, but I’m still not 100% sure about Dram and Dam.
They also told me that I must satisfy the Princess of the Celestial Court. However, to meet her, I had to satisfy each of her four “lesser” princesses:
The Princess of the North Wind/Mistress of Winter
The Princess of the East Wind/Mistress of Spring
The Princess of the South Wind/Mistress of Summer
The Princess of the West Wind/Mistress of Autumn
In order to get to each of these, I had to satisfy her 7 handmaidens. Totaled up, that’s (7×4) +4 +1, or 33. I know that 33 is a powerful, sacred number with lots of mythological significance, but I’m not sure how it fits in here. The Celestial Court is an ancient Chinese mythology, but it is usually represented with dragons, not princesses. Also, even though the word that was used is “satisfy,” I don’t think it was meant to be a purely sexual encounter, although there was certainly an element of sexuality to it. It was more like each one has a test that must be passed: A riddle to be solved, a test of skill, or something like that.
Once one group of handmaidens is satisfied, they will take me to their Princess for her test. If I pass, she will give me a key. Once I have all four keys, they will unlock a door which will take me to the Princess of the Celestial Court. If I pass her test, I will be given the key to enlightenment, or something like that. The 7 gurus were kinda vague as to the point of all this, but they assured me it was something I wanted to do.
So…any ideas or insights that anyone wants to share in the comments would be much appreciated!
