There are dreams that fade within the depth of the sleeping consciousness. There are also dreams that seem to open doors to a sub reality that in actuality is the reality we can not recognize with our eyes open. It’s as if eyes wide shut can see beyond the simple clarity of light.
I am standing on the platform of the elevated train station. My cousin has arrived to pick me up. I tell him I have lost my cell phone. He gives me a watch and tells me I can reach him using the watch. I look at the watch, the hands are standing still. I don’t believe I will be able to call him with it. Suddenly it starts pouring. He shelters me and gives me a pair of galoshes. I put the boots on and we head out into the pouring rain. We are in the park now. The rain has stopped and the sun is shining bright. We start chasing colorful balloons across the park. I feel happy and we are laughing. We embrace and kiss gently. I feel safe.
For as long as man has dreamed of flight, the fountain of youth, treasures beyond belief, which is a direct consequence of our ability to dream. For as long as humans can remember we have dreamed. Some have dreamed of better days, while others have nightmares. The dream that I will share with you is quite peculiar, and you will see why.
Dreams can be extremely realistic depending on the individual, or very surreal. Most dreams defy the logic of being awake, yet they still transfer a sense of importance in our lives. While some disregard dreams as nothing more than a jumble of memories, others may tell the future while asleep. Edgar Evans Cayce, or the sleeping prophet, is regarded as the Nostradamus of our time and the most well documented psychic of our time. Though it remains a topic of debate, and one that continues to intrigue the imagination, Mr. Casey was also the most accurate of the psychics in history. In his words “that lack of interest is the reason for poor dream recall; that only the dreamer knows the meaning of his dream; and that a dream is correctly interpreted when it makes sense to the dreamer, when it checks out with his other dreams, and when it moves him forward in his life”, as he put so eloquently.
Epic dreams are vivid dreams which sometimes recur. These dreams are said to be “breakthrough” or “inspirational” dreams which compel the dreamer. These are also called Cosmic Dreams.
There have been accounts of people who have had Epic dreams. They say that when they experienced this dream it was just too “psychedelic for words”. Indeed epic dreams are hard to define but dream psychologists advice the dreamer to take note of the elements of these dreams as they can have hidden meanings which can be interpreted.
