Today was just another day at work for me. It was an early day and I was doing a bit better energy-wise than I had been all week. I ended up outside for a portion of my shift, enjoying the warm sunlight for the first time all week, and noticed a huge bird shadow moving over me. I followed it with my eyes and saw Raven alight on the building overhead. It was the first time I ever saw Raven at work… Ever. I’ve been at my job for seven years and I’ve never seen Raven with my own eyes there. She hopped around a bit on the building, visible to me through the branches of a nearby tree, and then She was gone. I did not see Her for the rest of the day.
I’ll be sure to have a chat with Nantosuelta this weekend during my Solstice rite. Raven must have something to share with me, yeah? Either that or She just wants to pester me again :p
I got a double header of wacky dreams recently.
Monday night featured me in an alpine loft style office of sorts with a man who was a human head on a bird body. The bird body changed to a different bird at one point and then he changed into a human-faced pikachu. This man-chu then proceeded to rub his chest in a suggestive manner (in jest) which was the funniest thing ever to me and the mystery dream people around me. Seriously it was insanely funny, doubling over crying laughter. I wonder if I was laughing in my physical body too?
Last night my dream involved me visiting mystery dream friends (I think for a baby shower or something). There was a young woman who left her cell phone on a windowsill and thought it had fallen onto the street (even though the window didn’t open far enough for that to be possible) and there were a few men sitting on the carpet who started an impromptu religious ritual. The ritual was unfamiliar to me and in my dream knowledge I ‘knew’ it was not my practice, but I joined them anyway. I recall short candles and incense I think. I was breaking a stick into small pieces in my hand as well.
Two memorable dreams in a row is unusual for me. The first dream was completely bizarre but I remember the sensation of the dream laugh being very enjoyable. The interfaith practice in last night’s dream was also interesting. Further interesting was my specific action of breaking a stick into smaller pieces. That was a thing I did unconsciously while on a call with my mentor some weeks ago while I was having, let’s say, a crisis of faith.
