      Deeply complex dreams with spirit animals, guides. If you have any like this share them here.

      " I have actually been into the meaning of dreams since I was in fourth grade, way back in 1993. That was the year I had my first life changing dream. I was transformed into a fox like creature, and was blown away by possibility, endless possibility. I still become that fox like creature regularly in my dreams. The fox transformation dreams was the original reason I looked up Lucid dreams on Google, I wanted to experience these types of things while consciously aware. "

      This is from my profile, has been up there since 2007. In this post I will try my best to describe the very personal 1993 dream, more like dreams, to the best of my ability.

      The guide that appeared in this set of dreams was always forming in the form of a fox from a green orb out of the wall ether in my bedroom or sometimes the hallway of my childhood home. he always said he wanted to show me my animal inside whenever it appeared, also stated he wanted to protect and teach me. When I asked why he was in my wall, he would tell me that his family of spirits lived in our wall's. He appeared sometime around 91, and kept showing up. When I had the dream in 93 where I was changed into a white fox for the first time (sometimes my fox form is fur-less), he said to come with his family to a grave to have a gathering of elementals. The grave we went to was full of other spirit animals. It got way deeper with many reacquiring elements and plots but I can't give concrete details, as it was so long ago. The last time I saw the spirit animal I asked if it had a human form, and the person it revealed to me looked like an old neighbor who told very similar story's.

      I did have a more recent dream where it was revealed that my spirit animal name is silver ghost. Sorry I can't give more details its a recurring set of dream's/vision's from over 25 years ago.

      I'm gonna just transfer this one directly over from my DJ from Jan 15 2010:

      ::: DARKMATTERS DREAM CLASSICS :::
      "Rapunzel Rapunzel let down your long hair"
      Dream in DARK RED
      Lucid in BLUE
      (I'm starting to wonder why I waste the effort writing that... I haven't used any blue since the first dream I wrote here!)



      Occasionally I'll post an old dream that I still remember or that I wrote down long ago and is worth putting up here. I'll tag them with the fancy-schmancy red title like above just to make them stand out. And if you've noticed, Im trying to use boldface and other formatting tricks so I can quickly scan the posts and locate certain keywords I might want to find later. Well... that and it breaks up a big block of dull text and makes it a heck of a lot more readable!

      Ok, so on with the classic dreamfest...

      I'm doing this one strictly from memory. I'm sure if I dug through the box full of notebooks from years gone by I could probably find where I wrote it down (not when I originally had the dream, but years later)... but this is one I've thought about and told people enough that I can still remember it pretty well. In fact it's probably my favorite of all the dreams I've had.

      The whole dream took place in a gigantic enclosed area with a polished wooden floor like the floor of a gymnasium. I say it was enclosed, yet the walls and ceiling were so far away I never saw them (except when... well, we'll get there when we get there). It was dark, like twilight or late evening dark (yes, the space was so freakin' huge that outdoor lighting conditions seemed to apply). Sitting here and there on this smooth wooden floor were little japanese style houses... the kind with sliding rice paper panels for walls, and they were situated in little decorative rock gardens. I was walking through it all with my sister Lauren. It seemed to be some kind of puzzle or riddle thing... a game we were engaged in -- we'd walk to the next little house and go inside, and it would be set up to look like some fairy tale or folk tale kind of thing, and we had to guess what it was. Like this...

      We stepped into the first one (actually I had the feeling we had already done quite a few and there were only a few more left before the end of the day). Even though it was a tiny little house like a pagoda with rice paper walls, somehow the inside was a stone chamber with absolutely nothing in it except an arched window in one wall (not even the door we had come in... we weren't aloud to leave the room until we solved the riddle). We puzzled over this one for a while, and suddenly my sister figured it out. We weren't aloud to talk to each other or say what the answer was, we had to answer each riddle by just saying the right lines -- so Lauren went to the window and hung her hair out of it. Suddenly I understood, so I said "Rapunzel Rapunzel let down your long hair". That was it, puzzle solved. Now the stone chamber changed to the inside of the painted paper pagoda it was from the outside, and we walked out and went to the next one.

      This one was another stone chamber, very rough-hewn, as if the entire square chamber had been hand-carved. In one wall was a recessed stone oven with an iron door on the front with small grilles so you could see the flames inside. The only other feature in the room was a large iron cage. I got this one first -- I stepped up to the cage, stuck my forefinger in through the bars and said "Hansel". Now Lauren understood her part, so she opened the iron door on the oven and said "Gretel".

      That was the last pagoda in sight... we had solved them all, and that meant we were now allowed to spend the night inside the enclosure and to act as guardians... security guards in the event of intruders. We walked into a chamber with three straw mats laying on the floor, each one with a large jungle cat laying next to it. They were three different kinds of cats... I don't remember exactly what kinds, but I believe one was a tiger, one a panther, and one a Leopard or something like that. Somehow we knew two of these were our spirit animals, and we had to choose them correctly. I think it's absolutely ingenious how clever the dreaming mind can be at times... the fact that there were three cats means we both had to make a choice... if there were only two then after the first of us made a choice the other one would get the other cat by default.

      We both knew immediately which cat was our spirit animal. I wish I could remember what they were, but it's been many years. But here's the clincher... just choosing the right cat wasn't enough... we also had to whisper their name in their ear or they'd tear us apart. My sister whispered something I couldn't hear in her cat's ear and it laid its head back down and went to sleep.. she snuggled up next to it's body to keep warm in the cooling evening air and I was left sitting on my mat next to my cat wondering how the hell I was supposed to know it's name!! The cat started to get restless because I didn't know it's name; I could feel it growling deep in its throat and then it looked at me. Its eyes were wild and glaring... beginning to get angry. The tail began to twitch and it started to rise up onto its front paws ready to stand up. I knew it was only a matter of minutes before it would rip into me. But Lauren leaned over and told me its name... it was something complicated that started with an R... I think it might have been Rumplestiltskin. Something similar anyway. Again, I really wish I remembered!

      I whispered the name into the cat's ear and it laid back down and went to sleep. I snuggled up against it... feeling its strength and power... it was a wild thing but I had a shared bond with it and could somehow use the power of this type of cat in defense of the... whatever the place was we were defending. We slept like this for some time, then we all awoke suddenly and quietly in the middle of the night, knowing that there were intruders trying to get in. We all acted in concert without needing to say a word... we were like a well-oiled machine going into action. All three jungle cats started running along the polished wooden floor and my sister and I hung onto the tails of our spirit animals and slid along in our socks. Awesome fun!!

      In complete silence we made our way in this fashion for what seemed like miles along the polished floor, winding our way between pagodas along curving paths until we came to a vast steel wall that seemed to be super-thick like the door of a bank vault. There was a huge garage-style door set in the wall made of thick armored steel that had been pried up somehow and three cat-burglars had come in and were standing just inside the (still-open) door. Heh... cat burglars was the way to describe them... they were like primitive tribesmen wearing nothing but loincloths and some kind of gloves or mitts and leggings... all made form the skin of a particular type of jungle cat. The mitts had claws emerging from them... I wasn't sure if the claws actually belonged to the dudes or if they were just attached to the mitts.

      When we got within about 20 yards of these guys we released the tails of our cats and slid the rest of the way to them in our socks. Meanwhile all 3 of the cats ran ahead and got there before we did. The fight was on, and it was sheer bedlam. These guys were total badasses, they were starting to kick our asses even though with the cats we outnumbered them... and you'd think three guys would fall easy prey to three jungle cats, but these guys had somehow assumed the power of the cats they had killed and taken the skin and claws from. Somehow Lauren and all 3 cats were fighting two of the intruders and I was fighting their leader alone. I didn't know how I was supposed to fight this guy... I mean, he was a match for a full-grown tiger! He was super-strong and moved way too fast for me, and he looked in my eyes (his eyes were glowing red and empty) and roared!! That kind of freaked me out, and for a second it scared me even more, but then I got mad. I was like... ok... ok buddy... you can roar, well so can I! So I did, and as I did I could feel raw primal energy coursing through my body. That apparently was my heritage because I had bonded with my spirit animal, and I somehow knew that because I had got my power the right way... by knowing the cat's name rather than by killing it and taking its skin and claws, that I had more power than the cat-dude did.

      When I roared at him, I felt this insane surge of power rise through me and I saw the reflected glow on his face from my eyes, which I knew were now glowing red much brighter than his were. I saw fear come over his face and suddenly he broke and ran toward the door, which was beginning to close. His cohorts fled with him, and all three dropped at full speed and slid out under the massive door as it was closing. I dove after them and also did the drop/slide thing, but I was slightly too late and could only jam my arm under the door... but my fingers tangled in his hair, so I did another roar -- this one louder and far more savage than my first one, and my power redoubled. I felt claws spring out of my hands and a mane come out around my neck and shoulders, and I grabbed him with a hand as strong as steel and hauled him back under the door, bending the lower edge of it inward. In fact I became so powerful and primal that it scared me a bit...


      I woke up right then, feeling a surge of power like that I had felt in the dream (but not nearly as strong... no claws or mane). I somehow knew that we had captured all the intruders and successfully defended the... place.

      Darkmatters, thanks for sharing that, it was a very good read. I too had some nice battles in my fox form over the years. Haven't thought about the spirit animal graveyard hangout for a while haha, too bad I forgot about it for so long, the old member wakingnomad would have tried to invade XD




      I might as well post this DJ entry from 2012 as it seems to conclude my childhood dreams story arc quite nicely.

      The dream began with me in a dark room, where a mirror was by my bed, A mysterious voice said you have used it before, haven't you? I said I used it to turn into an animal. The voice said how did it feel, realistic? I said yes, and that it made me feel free. The voice said how so? I said it opened up my mind to odd ideas not possible, in waking life. The voice said what is waking life?! And I suddenly was in sleep paralysis. Strong electricity, buzzing, and total oblivion. While fighting it, this same voice said it's going to change your life, fight it off and it will set you free. The buzzing subsides and I just know I beat it back to a dream. The same voice said welcome back to the dreamworld. At this point I said what's going to change my life? Voice: That you remembered. I was like wow, this is one incredibly vivid conversation for a DC, so I asked who are you? My dream name is Silver Ghost, but I am also you. I have a dream name? Yes. Do others know this name? Yes. (Goggled it after the dream, and got a 1906 car) After that the voice said look at the mirror, and change. I changed into the same Fox-like animal that I have done a few time's before, only this time was way more vivid with white fur. "Now run around someone's dream your connected to. You don't know them but do whatever you want" is the last thing the voice said. I left my house and was in apparently someone's dream. I think it was just my own dream, but I'm open to anything, really. There a woman said look at that dream character, hey wolf are you a wolf? I said I don't think so. Are you dreaming too? I said. She looked at me sexually, and this wearied me out. Are you real doggie? Want to play a dream game? I asked what that was and she said A Transformation? How did you do it, in my dream? So I approach her and she pets my hair, winks at me and I woke up. So complex by far my longest most comprehensive conversation and totally meaningful.

      That's really cool that you kept dreaming about it! I don't remember ever dreaming about mine again after that, though in one dream many many years later, I did encounter a group of 3 jungle cats laying on the ground, but I only saw them briefly and it was just as part of a developing scary animal nightmare scenario that a moment later included a big crocodile too.

      Ya, I kind of had a bit of a reacquiring set of dreams, the graveyard would sometimes need protection, so the spirit animals would often defend it by scaring away intruders. Most of this stuff happened between 91, and 95ish I did not know about lucid dreaming, back then. Part of what makes persistent dreams and realms work is just assuming it to be. Forcing is not how to handle dream worlds (This logic works a lot for me now many years later in lucid dreams). Did I get shown my real spirit animal? Or all just imagination?

      I think the truth is a bit less than one or the other. I am convinced that something happened be it spiritual or just something deep from within, all I know is I have become a fox in my dreams since, and its quite amazing when I do. I have become a lion once, a tiger at least twice but the fox? At a minimum There are about 20 dreams or more.

      Once I even became a fox during a seizure during an operation, forgot about that one.

      Here's what I posted in 2010 "ya I got to bring up a surgery event that happened to me, I had a grapefruit sized lump that could of been Cancer for all I knew, but on to my story: To see If this lump was inflamed by Cancer, I needed a giant needle in my neck, ya don't ask how that felt, I cant tell you because of what happened when the event happened, it wasn't cancer and that's all that matters. I had some kind of panic come over me when this thing entered my neck, green flashing lights were around all corners of my eye, and suddenly I vividly saw my body with needle still in and flew away, all the way to where I used to fish with my brother when we were kids in quarryville pa , I hadn't seen this location in 15 years yet it looked 100% like the creek and trees in front of our old house, (in resent years I took a trip and it was exact to my vision) during this event I turned into a kind of animistic fox spirit and just flew over this creek down to the old quarry where the kid's used to jump off into the one deep hole. This was an amazing thing"



      I strongly feel I have some connection with what I feel is a spirit animal. Whether a spirit animal is a real outside thing, or like I said earlier, just something deep from within. I love spirit animal dreams and visions. I wish everyone could experience one of these thing's they really are something else.
