Nuclear Clouds Rising Over Motel 6
Edited on Wed Mar-16-11 07:08 AM by Dover
A dream from a couple of years ago. In light of current events I find myself identifying now with some of the feelings in this dream.

Dream Nuclear Clouds Rising Over Motel 6

In the dream I was staying in this motel/live-in type place. You know those one story roadside motels, old and unkempt, where there is just a line of rooms? Well the building was like that only some people seemed to be living there as well. I was staying there, in some nondescript room, for some unknown reason. From inside the room I opened the door looking out toward the western horizon and saw in the far distance two nuclear clouds rising up from the same general area. It was far enough away that I could not hear it, but could see it. The woman in the next room over (who was more like a full time resident) must have also seen it. She scrambled outside to her 'garden' and started hastily collecting tomatoes off her plants (I guessed to sustain her through the crisis). She scurried back inside and shut the door. I too retreated inside and turned on the T.V. to the news. And while there was regular programming on, there was not a lick of news or information about this nuclear event. I sat in that room for a long time thinking about what to do next, aware there may be radiation and other things out 'there'. But practically speaking I also knew I couldn't just stay in that room either. It wasn't even my home.
I was just passing through. And I didn't have anything to sustain me there anyway. I eventually went back out again and observed in the town nearby that while others seemed to have witnessed the event as well, they also seemed to have come to the conclusion that there was really nothing they could do so they were almost immediately starting back into their regular routines. There was some alarm but no real fear.

The end


I believe symbolically the West represents the setting sun, the end of a cycle, completion.
I think at one level many of us know we've passed some tipping point for the old reality which is no longer our 'home' and cannot sustain us. So in a sense we are living double one we recognize we are on the precipice of complete transformation while also going about business as usual in the 'old' reality. It's like having one foot on two ships that are floating apart. Time to make the leap to one or the other. And there are many ways in which we can begin to orient ourselves to the new reality though no one can know with certainty what it is. That is what faith is all about. Developing and trusting that inner voice and compass, and leaving the rest to the Divine.

Pretty depressing dream and I'll bet it is a fairly common one.
I can certainly understand why these dreams are lurking in our collective subconscious minds. For one thing, it's a potential reality relative to the choices we've made which we have chosen to ignore or suppress. So it shows up in our dreams.
And now it has manifested itself in our waking reality. It seems what's going on now in Japan is as bad if not worse than the dream.

2. You may not believe this but...
when I was a child..many years ago...(during the time when we were being taught to hide under our desks in the case of a nuclear attack) I had a similar dream and it has stayed with me all these years. I was in an unfamiliar house, in the dining room, looking out through a picture window. My mother was with me and I saw on the western horizon, two mushroom clouds, side by side. I knew that they were 'bombs' and then I saw two more mushroom clouds, which were much closer. My mother seemed unconcerned. But I knew there might be a problem.

That's all I remember.

Weird, eh?

4. I am not so surprised anymore by shared dreams
considering that we are all connected. And perhaps there are groups of individuals who are building upon the same reality and are connected via dreams or psychically. At least that's the feeling I've had when I connect with people who have had similar dream experiences or dream themes.

I have what I call "global dreams" which I feel have as much or more to do with collective and plantetary scale experiences than they do with my personal issues. I've had difficulty distinguishing what should be interpretted in a literal sense as opposed to symbolic or psychological. However I've come to the conclusion that there really is no separation between the two.

Obviously the dream you had was significant enough to stay with you all these years. What is your take on its meaning for you? And what do you think it means that there are TWO mushroom clouds?

5. I have thought about that dream so often
Sometimes I remember that in the dream I felt fear, but I also remember feeling curiosity and a kind of strange spiritual understanding and calmness, that the bombs were not just what they appeared to be, but I never knew what they really symbolized.
