The past few nights I’ve been doing some more new dreamwork as I sleep. Not like a dream in the conventional sense, but more like the dream healing I was doing last fall, which I wrote about here. This recent dreamwork is difficult to explain in words, but I’m going to try.
Oddly enough, it centers around part of the song “Kandi” by One Eskimo, a sort of bridge or chorus that was actually originally part of an older song, though I’m not sure of the history. The part I’m talking about goes “he called me baby, baby, all night long.” I heard the song on The World Cafe on Saturday night, and since then it’s been woven through my sleep.
As I rise up toward the surface, between deep sleep and dreaming, I hear that part of the song playing. And it feels like a spell or type of magick, and the word that comes up about it is “transformation.” When the song-spell plays, I go through the process of transforming something within me…energy? old patterns? I’m not sure what it is, or how to describe it. It’s a deep feeling, and it seems like a positive thing when it is happening. Last night I remember noting the fact that I was doing the “spell” backwards. The music was still playing as usual, but somehow it seemed like I had learned to reverse something, and that too was a good thing.
Sorry to be so vague, but I wanted to try and capture it here. The reason I recalled it was that I didn’t remember any traditional dreams this morning, so when I was thinking about dreams, this is what popped into my memory. Don’t look so puzzled – you already knew I was strange!
