Dream: Working at a law office. It’s huge, everyone is corrupt to some extent. At some point everything starts falling apart. People start killing people (in the office, which is a several story high building), in order to eliminate the corrupt and/or unfavorable elements at the office. I try to avoid the heat of the action. I’m not really one of the people they are going for, right? I run through buildings trying to avoid the line of fire. People have super powers, at one point, early on, I am talking to a man checking people into something, an event maybe. He is sitting behind a card table and has a lot of lipstick on, way more than would be appropriate for a woman, and very shiny. He looks strange in other ways, it is all part of his persona (as a super power). A man comes up, he used to be a nobody, but he got superpower and now he is a ninja. The lipstick man acknowledges my realization of this transformation and is duly impressed by it. Now he wears a shiny black jacket that has emblems of his ninja skills on it, and walks with confidence.
Later I am outside–things are getting more violent–I go over to a building. The people with me are being shot at. I duck behind various things trying to avoid death or injury. I manage to get pretty far away–actually just around the corner (in a room that is large and pale pinkish orange), but then as I almost got through a door I woke up one of the three infants belonging to the Asian lady who was also sleeping. They looked like the children of both her and the ninja. Hmmm. She woke up and started coming after me with a night stick. I go into the stairwell, flying down the stairs and just making it outside (and safe, she doesn’t come outside). Then I am flying across the land (greenscape). I am flying breast stroke style–having to work a little to move forward quickly. A lady from the same office flies with me for a little while and then we part ways–we are both going to find our super powers, but she has to go home to Iowa to find hers, I believe she has a collection of bugs (dead in a case) with her.
There is a stream of people moving through the air coming up on my right. I enter/am sucked into the stream. We end up in a large building with rooms full of many beds–like an old hospital. The information is given that we will lay down to sleep and three instruments of death will be put on our bed (different for different people) and they will either dissolve and we will wake up, or not and we will die. There is a sign saying that this will not take any actual time, because we are in the land of the dead and time does not pass here as it does where we are from. Right before I am going to lay down I wake up.
As an aside, I am repeatedly getting the message that bear is coming into my life. How is bear coming? I have no idea. Bear is associated with herbs and midwifery, and that’s about all I know right now. Also was very happy to see a bald eagle circling above Portland, as I was a little worried I had given up bald eagles moving to the city.
