GG has recently sent a postcard of a parrot to a school geography project. It reminded me of this:
In January of this year I got a book called the Dream Oracle. It suggested that one way to get messages from your dreams was to use their code. This associates each letter of the alphabet with a keyword. The idea is that for your dreams to tell you that you need to look at something, say Patience you would dream of lots of things beginning with the associated letter. Maybe you would dream of Penguins playing with Pangolins on the the Pebbles in Pembrokeshire. There are key words associated with each letter of the alphabet so any dream which features either one or maybe two letters is clueing you in to look at the issue associated with that letter.
One of my first dreams after reading this book started like this:
The oracle rings me on the telephone. The voice on the other end says that he is "Parrot Tom Williams".
The dream went on and the letters P, T and W were emphasised again and again. P stands for patience, T for talent and W for will. I thought that this was an overly complex message to be getting through this method and moved on to different methods of dream interpretation.
Looking back on it now I think there was a useful message here; that I needed to balance my will and my patience in both uncovering and honing whatever talents I might have. Maybe if I'd paid attention I'd have started this blog in January and not September.
However the main thing that came out of it was that Parrot Tom Williams has become quite a character in our house and I wanted to introduce him to you now!
Another dream I had that did its best to communicate via the Dream Oracle was one about a Chartreuse Cat.
I am outside in my pyjamas. I am trying to get into a house. The police come to arrest me for attempting to break-in. I explain that I'm trying to talk to the cat! I lead them upstairs to show that I know the house. In the bedroom there is a dog and a cat. The cat is a Chartreuse Cat and can talk.
I ask him if he loves me.
He asks if I love him?
I say he's beautiful and I stroke his green fur. He's very fluffy. I tell him that I love him.
He says that in that case, yes he does love me.
I think that maybe this dream was a precognition of the unknown... which leads me to think that before he was a skeleton he had lots of green fur!
