I had a vivid dream last night that was influenced by seemingly nothing, as I had gone to bed directly after a long a tedious night of college homework. It was quite detailed, so this will be somewhat of a long read.
I was in a dimly-lit and spacious location with at least 10-20 other people (could not tell if outdoors or indoors, as I was too focused on what caught my attention the most). We were all dressed in black robes and stood before a huge statue of an owl (stood at least 20 feet tall or more). This place had a nice and even stone floor, and a short set of very elongated steps led up to the somewhat higher floor the owl was on. This whole ritual look like it took place on a sort of stage. On a small (3 ft long, 2 ft wide) stone table in front of the owl was an offering of a wicker person that a woman placed there to be set fire by everyone who carried a candle.
As the wicker sacrifice burned, the energy of the whole room rose. Everyone started to chant and sing, some even dancing enthusiastically around the platform. One person here and there would go into a trance as they knelt down on one knee, bowed their head, or showed respect to the owl statue in some way. Some even escalated to being more openly intimate with one another to build up sexual energy. I was part of the few who were absolutely mesmerized by the owl and barely budged; something seemed so familiar about all this. I felt special to be a part of this secret coven and took all of it in.
When the ritual was over, everything vanished like a movie fading out to black and I magically teleported back to my house. I was no longer wearing my previous garments and was back in casual clothing. My mother walked up to me in my dream to ask me where I had been, and I looked her in eyes and said without hesitation, “Absolutely nowhere, doing absolutely nothing”. The dream ended then and there. When I woke up, I recalled it clearly and was immediately reminded of the stories I’ve read about Bohemian Grove and the Cremation of Care. Any thoughts on such a dream?
