Starfish Hors d’oeuvres

For the love of dreams; 11 27 19

I posted about a scary dream; this is short fun dream.

The symbol of a starfish has become a significant component of my meditation world over the last year or so.

Deep in the sea of my imagination is a huge starfish named Predominance. It is as large as an island. It is a main figure in a short story I’m working on. In meditation I often sit upon it’s huge back and look off into the great darkness surrounding it. At the ends of its appendages lay the five elemental lakes of changing energy that are used in Taoism, Buddhism and many Earth related beliefs. Water, Fire, Earth, etc., they vary a bit depending on the discipline. They have become quite vivid.

I had never bothered to see what a starfish is thought to represent in dream symbolism. Two nights ago, in a dream I saw a hand extended towards me. In the hand were five newly, let’s say hatched, starfish. They were about the size of a silver dollar. I was told to eat them, I shook my head and said, “No, I don’t want to kill them.”

When I woke up, I looked up Starfish in my 20,000 Dreams book by Mary Summer Rain, they represent spiritual truths. How fun is that?

I respectfully and symbolically gobbled them down the next day I meditated.

I encourage everyone to pay attention to your dreams, they are an open channel to higher plains. There are many blessings being poured out at this time and you can receive them while you sleep, can’t beat that.

My wife Cheryl and I live in St. Joseph, Missouri. She is retired and watches three of our 12 grandchildren and 1 greatgrandchild. I work as a maintenance man at Highland Community College in Highland, Kansas. I have a BA in Art with an emphasis in ceramics. I am a second degree Reiki practitioner and BQH (Beyond Quantum Healing) practitioner. I started writing spiritual related posts in 2018 and started sharing them on a few different Facebook sites. This site is to consolidate and re-share them. It is also to share short stories based on images seen while in meditation. My hopes are that it will inspire others to use the powerful tool of visualisation to enhance their spiritual journey. Thank you.
