Let’s build an ongoing thread where we articulate the content and meaning of our dreams in relation to our magickal progress.
It’s very common for practicing sorcerers and mages to actually commune with their familiar entities and cast astral spells inside their dream state.
In fact, we probably practice more magick while asleep, than awake.
Write the basic storyline and relevant details of your dreams so we can all learn from your lucid, otherworldly experiences.
I’ll go first. I’ve had a recurring dream that has 2 clear features:
- I’m in a zombie apocalypse scenario, where there are ravenous undead corpses chasing after me for my brain - way too many to fight, so the dream plot depicts my escape and flight to find a safe hiding space.
The shocking twist to this dream is I discover I CREATED the zombies through mad experimentation of massive necromantic corpse reanimation.
I caused the end of the world.
- There always are 2 burdensome women (never men) that have absolutely no idea what to do in the survival situation, so they follow my lead closely. We consistently make it to a safe place, at which point I initiate a dominant sexual threesome. (The sexual part makes sense in the live dream, but feels random right now as I write about it)
And this is where I wake up, every time.
I’m actually at the point where I want a new dream, because I’ve had it repeat a few nights in a row now.
And I can only attribute this dream to one thing.
I’ve been mentally preparing and writing a lot about necromancy recently. And this could be a clue that possesses foresight into my destiny for success in advancing the practice of corpse reanimation.
I speculate this, because in my life I’ve always been the kind of guy that gets into serious trouble with whatever I’m passionate about, in order to experience powerful, life-changing epiphanies.
For example, when I was a teenager I had a near-death experience in the hospital from a drug overdose at a party one night. I physically died in the emergency room - my heart monitor went flat - and then moments later it kicked back into action, and I woke up several hours afterward on a gurney in the early morning.
This experience really taught me to stop abusing chemical substances.
I wonder if this apocalyptic dream is a prophecy that I’ll achieve success with necromancy, but I’ll go too far and cause trouble, in order to ultimately learn an important lesson about self-control.
Or perhaps the dream is an omen warning me to be more careful and cautious, so to avoid making problems.
Or, maybe this specific dream means nothing and is just fuck-all entertainment for my mind while sleeping.
It’s an experience that has stayed with me long after I wake up, because it’s extremely visual and visceral. I see the zombies chasing us, and I actually feel this awesome, shameless terror of being confronted by the monsters of my own creation, like Frankenstein.
So that’s my most recent mental horror show. I’m hoping tonight will be different, because I’d hate to dread falling asleep.
As I said at the beginning, detail your own dream scenarios and interpretations with us, and perhaps we can find interesting themes and meaningful clues toward the progression of our own magick.
