I’ve been meaning to do this for quite some time.
I won’t be sharing like all of my dreams due to idk I prefer some privacy lol but this one was really meaningful after the fact.
This is actually something that is consistent throughout my life. My dream “meanings” etc.
I remember I had this one dream dictionary in high school that I consistently referred to because it was the best that I had found.
I dream very vividly and I remember my dreams for years. I can remember dreams from when I was 6..
Anyway this one, also not unusual..was heavily influenced plot-wise on a movie. I saw Argo yesterday. I didn’t think that movie would have had such an impression on my psyche that I would dream about it or that it would influence my dreams. Usually it is only very graphic, gory, violent movies that give me nightmares for at least two nights if not more.
So the premise of Argo is that Ben Affleck was to go into a hostile country (Iran) and rescue hidden American citizens that worked at the embassy before a mob stormed the place and took over. It was based on true events that happened in the late 70’s early 80’s. ARGOFUCKYOURSELF!
In this dream gemstones were highly prevalent. I love studying gemstones, gemology. Really fascinating stuff… they are all one of a kind.
Anyway my summary of this dream is rather brief..
I remember I was with a team of my friends and we were gem hunting in western Europe/Middle East.
I remember seeing so many gemstones in my dream: Carnelian, Amethyst and what I found out after research, White Agate.
My friends and I were wrapping up our trip and we were passing through the final check point of security to leave the country. I had a huge variety of gemstones (more than the aforementioned) specimens, no cut or polished, though perhaps tumbled..but mainly specimens.
I was carrying this long, thin white stone bowl that was banded clearer in some bands and more opaque white in others. I just remember the security guards giving us a hard time. I happened to go ahead of two of my friends, both of which are married and were married in life as well as in dreamland. I passed but my best friend (name witheld) that is in my waking life one of my oldest, didn’t “pass” security and was dragged into this idk, side room or something. I just remember my eyes getting big, and I made a kneejerk, stubborn no-friend-left-behind decision and handed my white agate bowl to maybe my boyfriend? or some male friend that was in front of me in line and now beside me as we watched in horror at the events unfolding. I then took off past the 2nd security guard into the side room where my two married friends were to “save” or help her. I had no idea what the heck I was to expect after handing off that white agate bowl and making the brash, scary or brave? decision to not let my friend be witheld. Once in the room, it of course went into at least a second room, but the guard got no further than the threshold/barely in the second room, because I arrived.. probably fire in my eyes or something I didn’t know what I looked like other than I was on that guard like righteous fire.
I went after the guard with my dream-strong hands (and with the help of my friend’s husband) and ultimately he held the guard down & kept him quiet while I broke his neck in half.
The guard turned into a friggin shopping cart (pull any metaphor you’d like out of that one) right before I broke him in two. I also remember seeing a white dove “spirit” or something flying out of where the guard’s head used to be.
We gathered ourselves and walked out. I remember, at the last moment being tempted very badly when passing this open white cabinet that was just packed to the rim with gems. It was here I remember thinking about the Carnelian (traditionally associated with fire, and cleansing) I just wanted to grab ONE but it was just a turn of my head and I just kept walking right out like I owned the place, like I belonged there (no nervousness etc.) and we just tersely smiled and nodded to the other security guard and walked to our freedom.
This was a persistent dream. My alarm was going off this morning and I’d be like ugh wtf snooze and fall back asleep…and right back into the dream.
Once I finally woke up I was so curious what in the world was with the white stone bowl that I had handed off before doing such a crazy brave or strong thing to save my friend. I mean, in my dream, there was no question, just split second decision and then action.
Here is what I found on my first search (after verifying it was indeed white agate):
History and Legend
Agate derives its name from the river Achates in Sicily. Greek philosophy described this gem as early as 300 B.C. It was the stone of warriors in ancient times. The famous ancient Egyptian scarabs are made of agate. Agates come in many forms and colors and are among the earliest stones used for healing and bringing good luck.
Agate is the must have protection stone. It protects from stress, from bad dreams and is said to protect children from danger. It enables the wearer to distinguish between false friends and true ones. It brings prosperity and creates an appreciation of nature.
The stone of the warrior. Gave me chills when I read that.
The carnelian and amethyst were easier to relate: Amethyst being a stone of the crown chakra with a meaning of protection. I associated the amethyst with my friends in trouble the most:
Ancient Egyptians used the amethyst guard against guilty and fearful feelings. It has been worn as protection from self-deception, as well as a protection against witchcraft. The amethyst has long been used to open the spiritual and psychic centers, making it one of the power stones. It is also used as a meditation aid when worn as a necklace.
The amethyst is known as the Bishop’s Stone and is still worn by Catholic Bishops. The amethyst symbolizes piety, humility, sincerity and spiritual wisdom. It is thought the amethyst is the perfect stone to symbolize The Age of Aquarius.
Carnelian is a stone of cleansing, changing negative energy to positive and associated with the sacral chakra and enhances creativity, healing, sexuality and reproduction, desire, emotion, intuition. In my dream it seemed to be cleansing temptation and the negativity, anger and fire I was feeling while committing a violent yet symbolic act in my dream.
Powers: Protection, peace, eloquence, healing and courage
Carnelian was worn on the hand in ancient Egypt to still anger, as well as jealousy, envy and hatred. It is still used to promote peace and harmony and to dispel depression as well.
It is used to counteract doubt ad negative thoughts, and can also be used in spells relating to these problems. It may confer patience.
Carnelian has been worn to guard against others who try to read your thoughts. In Renaissance magic, the carnelian was usually engraved with a sword or images of warriors. Then this as a magical amulet was place in the home to guard it from lighting and storms or carried as protection against enchantment.
I have to admit, this is the first time I’ve dreamt and the dream prominently featuring gemstones. Very interesting to me as I have also just begun wearing Moldavite with me again.
whooooo that is a whole other thing. I also haven’t really focused much on my studies of gemology. Obviously going to change after last night.
For the record, here is moldavite:
It was created when a meteorite smashed into earth in Czechoslovakia. It is the only place where it is found, and it is always best to get the natural (raw, uncut/polished) moldavite to assure it is authentic. It raises and enhances the powers of any crystals/gemstones it comes into contact with as well as being able to activate all the chakras. It IS green which mean it could most highly resonate with the heart chakra, but this stone is straight otherworldly.
The stone seems to engender and acceleration of one’s inner growth and evolution.
(It doesn’t mess around, you don’t wear this without really being READY. I can definitely say this. I can only wear Moldavite for relatively small lengths of time before I go OKAY WHAT IS GOING ON I CANT HANDLE THIS CRAZINESS!! Then I look down and go, “Oh”. and take it off…and suddenly, things seem to thankfully calm down.
I did NOT truly believe this when I read it. It took my personal experience to believe it. Hence, my very important note here.)
So, There goes my first entry.
My dreams do get even weirder and they are always vivid.
UPDATE As of Nov 13th 2012
Hi again, this was too coincidental to not note down in this very public but perceived persoanl log.
The night after I awoke from this dream I found none other than a carnelian and white agate sterling bracelet on my favorite website. I didn’t even search for the white agate part.
As of this update, I am wearing it.
Secondly, within the week, I found the exact dreamers dictionary (without looking for it) at the book store!!
Word of note, all of the aforementioned characteristics of stones, etc.. dream meanings..
Am I sitting here with this crystal ball saying ooohhmmm this will be your future type thing? no.
Take it all with a grain of salt.
all of it.
