Yesterday and today I saw hummingbird! First time to see here in Portland, but I had heard they were around. I saw one buzzing around the tree directly out my front window. Then, today, I was up on top of the garage and saw two hummingbirds in my neighbors yard. They then flew over the garage I was standing on to another tree. The light was right and they were pretty close, so I got to see their colors. Very pretty iridescent marine blue and green colors. Just like in my dream that I had shortly after moving to Portland! It was so nice to see them, especially because they are associated with aesthetics, beauty, and joy. I think of them as good omens for art (oh, and life).
On a different note:
Dream (a couple days ago): I find out that Kevin has had sex with two women, one of them a friend of mine. At first I am not too reactive about it, like normal for me. Then I talk to Kevin about it at some party and he just kind of acts like its no big deal. I become very enraged and scream many things at him. It’s nighttime in Iowa City. I decide I need to take a run to cool down. I run down Dodge St. for several blocks. I get to a big street and have to slow down. Across the street I see some people walking a great dane. The dog is using those shoes that look like athletic shoes, but have rollers on the bottom.
This dream isn’t exactly my typical flight dream, however it really stuck with me for a couple reasons. When I got angry I was able to scream (loudly and freely) in dreamtime. Also I was able to run, way better than I can in “real life”, for that matter. This was a heat induced nightmare that I was very glad to wake up from. But still it’s left me contemplating anger and how it could be used to positively affect my energy and (waking) dream situation.
