Dream — January 29, 2018 8:56am
A mammoth 100 story circular contraption made of metal and built like the bottom half of a ferris wheel is sitting atop the open sea. Two riders, able to “ride” the contraption at a time, stand at separate ends. They are a couple seeking advice. The wife chose to stand at the very top of one side of the arch, while the husband stood at the center point between the top and bottom of the other side. Judge Lynn Toler is their advisor and a class of 15 people join her at the bottom, center of the arch between both sides. Small standing areas have been built into the contraption for each of the two individuals and group to stand upon.
The ride begins. As judge Toler asks questions of each partner, she realizes the wife chose to stand at the very top as her personal symbol of principle. Judge Toler kindly admonishes the woman. The ride, which first rocked slowly, now rocks more deeply to the point that each end submerges into the sea. I take the shape of the woman in the dream, preparing myself to properly hold my breath while under water. I feel myself not ready, as though I hadn’t taken a large enough inhale, so I inhale a small amount while under and realize I can breath while under. Slowly the contraption not only continues to go under but it makes an entire revolution, slowly, over and over. The ride ends and the contraption decreases to a normal sized coiled snake. After the experience, my hair has transformed and is now a light reddish gold/auburn color and it stands in the shape of a tall fro hawk, short around the sides and on the top the length of my hair in waking reality. We all meet up as one group, I feel a little insecure about people seeing my hair but I do nothing about it.

With this cycle of initiation I accept the sorrow of existence, knowing well its boundaries, and transcend its territory into a new sense of family solidarity with persons wiser than myself.
I dedicate Time and Energy each and every day to seeking, listening, understanding, researching, challenging, and reflecting upon the advice of my Mentors in order to shift my reality from financial and psychological poverty towards wealth.
