The Waves is a newsletter reporting on the explorations of the
Sea Life community. Sea Life, the main web forum at Dreampeace, aims to
bring together a circle of dreamers from around the globe,
collaborating in mutual dreaming adventures, and 'dreaming with and for
the earth itself'.
The Quest for the Holy Grail:
During the Spectral Moon, we were joined with Dream Alliance on The
Quest for the Holy Grail. John, a member of a group Dream Alliance was
led to Dreampeace through a dream, calling for guidance on other groups
whom his group could hook up with, in promoting world peace through
dreaming. Last year, we joined Dream Alliance in a magical adventure to
This year, John suggested we share in 'The Quest for the Holy Grail':
"The Quest for
the Holy Grail seems very timely. As the Mayan Calendar winds down to
2012, humanity is facing a choice. We can either pursue the one-sided,
male-dominated, authoritarian war paradigm or we can choose to bring
balance to this approach by adding the Sacred Feminine principles to
our lives. The Holy Grail has been thought to be the cup or chalice
used by Christ, but Christ used allegory and metaphor extensively in
his teaching. The Holy Grail is now being considered by many to
represent the Divine Feminine. "The Quest for the Holy Grail" can be
seen as the opportunity for us to re-claim the Sacred Feminine within
This Sacred Feminine may manifest as the Goddess in Her many forms, or
as Mother Nature, or in any form that promotes the togetherness of the
Universal Network of Being. Our dream group here in Arizona has seen
her as Mary, Kwan Yin, Isis, Brighid, as well as in messages from
whales and dolphins and woodland creatures who have come to us in dreams.
The Grail has been associated with Avalon, the misty Isle, and with the
Druids. Any dreams with these images could be looked into for contact
with the Grail. Ask for messages from the Divine Feminine. Share them
with us, as we will share what we get with you. May we find and share
in the Holy Grail together."
We used this link to improve our understanding of the project:
The Quest for the Holy Grail included many dreams on the feminine,
healing, creativity, intuition, and even the 13 Moon Peace Calendar.
There were many great dreams about this Quest. We discovered we were
dreaming of each other and finding out some suprising things about the
13 Moon Peace calendar colours, the colours of the Tibetian Flag,
dreaming about other dimensions, and Goddesses like Isis. There was a
strong connection with Compassion and our Creativity as human beings on
Sunwolf kicked it off with a partial dream recall:
HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL
I went to bed reading parts of "Chalice of Ecstasy" by Charles
Stanfield Jones 1918 piece on 'Parsival' legend that Richard Wagner set
to music, an opera on the Holy Grail.
"Religious ecstasy takes place in the highest centres of the human organism."
"In ritual therefore, we seek continually to unite the mind to some pure idea by an act of will."
The piece said we do this continuously, to find some sort of religious ecstasy.
In my dream, which was very detailed, I was working with some poweful
woman with raven black hair, on Sea Life. She was having me reorganize
some files. It made perfect sense in the dream. I woke up, not
remembering who she was or what we were reorganizing. It felt like
tweaking what we had, making it fit into a bigger picture. I do
remember thinking to myself I couldn't wait to tell Explora.
Anyway suffice to say it led to a very nice Full Moon ritual tonight. I
got to explore some of the concepts of the dream, without even
remembering the details of the dream. Very interesting. I just let my
subconscious fill in the blanks. My ritual was basically about invoking
my striving for genius and higher ideals, by filling the sacred cup,
continuously. It gave me a whole new insight into the old adage "Is the
cup half empty or half full?"
Doesn't matter, drink what is there and fill it again!
This set off a trend of the members of this Moon's quest dreaming
together. During the course of posting Sunwolf put up a picture of a
Jaguar avatar, and this triggered a chain of events for John
(Dreamster) and later Sandy (GreenEyes).
FREE THE TIGER (JOHN)
It is remarkable that you are posting the picture of the large cat with
your name. That is one of the signs I was looking for. I had this dream
in April: I was in a large field with my dream group. A breeze came up
and I lifted my arms to a horizontal position and began flying. As I
flew above our group our members waved at me. I came in for a landing
and noticed a large building nearby that resembles our meeting hall. We
all walked over and entered the hall. Inside there was a rope extended
the length of the room, dividing it in two. Over the rope hung oriental
rugs, which made the whole thing look like a huge Tibetan Prayer Flag.
One of our dreamers climbed up on top of the rugs to sit on the rope.
He said to us "There's a message up here". (We often ask for messages
in our dreams). "What does it say?" we all asked. "It says, Free the
Tiger", he answered. This has set off a whole series of dreams related
to freeing the tiger within us....in order to serve the Goddess.
Then there was the T-shirt connection with both Nick and John. The
first night John dreamed he was wearing a T-shirt that read "Let Christ
live through you". Perhaps a symbol of the Cosmic Christ, John felt.
Nick's dream had a t-shirt that read "REAL Beauty Standing Up". John
felt that perhaps the t-shirt messages were for the males in the group
from 'the Divine Feminine'.
Nick later dreamed of a journey to 2012, he shared with the feminine
power within, and the importance of him creating a set of oracle cards
based around the maiden/mother/wisewoman trilogy in order to honour and
support this aspect of Self.
John also reported that another Dream Alliance team member had a dream
'he was receiving an award for an esoteric mathematical formula that he
came up with. The equation was several pages long, and very complex. On
the last page this huge equation came down to 6 over 3, which reduced
to one half. I believe it symbolized that we all represent one half of
the answer. Waking life is one half, dreaming is one half, Male is one
half, female is one half, light is one half, dark is one half, matter
is one half, spirit is one half.'
John (Dreamster) had a healing dream for a friend:
"A friend of
ours, the mother of our daughter's best friend, went into seizures
yesterday. She had recently had a stroke. She helped me edit one of my
books and is helping with a new book on lucid dreaming. We went to
visit her at the hospital and she said to me that she really wanted to
know what all of this suffering was about. She asked me to talk to Quan
Yin about it. I promised I would.
Last night I set my dream intent to ask for healing for our friend. In
my dream, I was at the beach. I saw a grand old mansion on the
beachfront and the gate was open. I walked in and saw an old woman
sitting in a wading pool. I intuitively knew she was a recluse, she had
been a very beautiful young woman and now didn't want anyone to see
her. I approached slowly and she turned around and made a funny face at
me, but I knew it was alright for me to join her. We sat in the pool
and an old man joined us. He had a watering can and started to sprinkle
water over me as he sang a song in a language I didn't know.
The water felt wonderful, and somehow it didn't leave me wet. The dream
ended. I drew a tarot card for the dream and again got the King of Cups
(upright). I feel that in asking for help for my friend, an older
woman, I received some kind of blessing myself. I believe the Goddess
appeared to me as the crone, and the watering can was the chalice or
grail. I can't wait to tell our friend about the dream."
Sunwolf's Many Dolphins Dream (where he and GreenEyes had a synchronicity with the image of playing the Guitar:
MANY DOLPHINS DREAM
First dream me and four guys were camping out, trying to escape some
gangs. Lars gets a cell phone call that some kids are setting fire to
his parents house. Suddenly there are guys surrounding our camp. They
grab this main dude we were hiding because they think he stabbed
someone in their gang.
This gang leader pulls out a list of occult groups, and I read it,
rather long, I'd say about 20 names, TOPY, and Marriage House, all
occult groups I recognize. He says they are going to feed me to the
Next dream we are at a friends house. We are going to put The Book of
the Law to music. I sing a little bit of it and Dave says that's nice,
but we have to lay down some rhythm tracks first. Dave asks GreenEyes
if she has her bass guitar and she says it is at home. Someone says
there is a toy ukulele and GreenEyes says its worth a try, better than
I go for a walk. It's a beautiful spring day in Boulder. I walk from
North Boulder to the ocean, which in the dream is only a few blocks
away. At the ocean I remember the scene and I say this outloud. This
little girl DC overhears me and says "Oh, this has been here for a very
The Ocean water level is very low, the oceans are dying. These
creatures looked like long whitish-yellow bones that have dried in the
Sun, and then I noticed that they were slowly moving, they were alive.
I couldn't help but notice they felt like whales, their heads looked a
little like dolphins. I asked the little girl what they were called.
She replied "Many Dolphins." Like that was the whole name.
Before I could ask her to explain herself, the solid concrete I was
standing on in front of the metal rail turned to mud and I started to
slip. I cried out: "I don't want to go now." The dolphin/worm was
edging towards me, opening a gapping mouth. The little girl handed me
her dolly blanket. I wrapped it on the metal railing above us and
pulled myself up. When I was standing again, I woke up.
Sage mentioned to use to pay attention to the colors in our dreams,
which led to GreenEyes having an interesting dream connecting the
colors of the Dreamspell with the Tibetan Flag, especially the Colour
"I can only
remember one dream. The dream would start and I would wake up, then I
would go right back into the dream as soon as I went back to sleep.
Over and over.
I was being shown the colors blue, red, yellow and white against a
flowing dark background. Sometimes they were shaped like the 13 moon
avatars, but mostly I saw bars of each color about 2 fingers wide, one
color at a time. I was supposed to repeat the colors. I kept trying to
stick green in there somewhere and I would hear, No. Just these colors.
Finally I said, Okay! Just primary colors!
I didn't have the dream any more after I said that. I can still see it
in my mind. I've been thinking about my artist supplies. I think I need
to get them out and be creative. I really can do anything with just
those primary colors."
And GreenEyes had another dream along these lines, which continued the
Tibetan flag dream. A dream of celebration of life and peace:
All of Sea
Life was at a colorful lovely peace festival. Beautiful blue sky. We
were going to hang prayer flags. The colored prayer flags had each of
our latest dreams of peace printed on them, but it was printed in
Tibetan. Nick wanted us to read them as we attached them to a braided
hair rope (?) to hang them. My dh had printed out a stack of them in English. They
looked like printed emails. I was handing them out as fast as I could.
At the same time I was whining about the Holy Grail assignment. Sunwolf
stepped up with a dark-haired girl and said, Stop! You know what you
think. Just write it down for Pete's sake! I blinked at him a few
times, realized he was right and went back to handing out people's
dreams. Nick was saying, Hurry up! We're using up too much time! All of
us were smiling and trying to hurry.
GreenEyes dream sums up the whole quest: the Search for the Holy Grail is a search for COMPASSION:
leading up to bedtime and sleep last night was hectic and noisy. A
television was still on as I drifted to sleep. I was a bit annoyed that
I wouldn't have a few quiet seconds to set intentions. I thought, What
intentions would I set?.... the holy grail?....the white tiger?....find
spirit guide?.......the women of the tiger dream with their blowing
black hair was the last thing I remember thinking about...
I dreamed a lot of things, but I can only remember small pieces. Each
bit happened very quickly, just a few seconds each. I'm going to put
them here, because they feel somehow important.
I am looking down from the sky at a man figure outlined in white on a brilliant green hillside......
I am with someone dressed in dark green. I am wearing old leather,
brown and soft. My hair is long and curly blond. We are scrambling
through a cave with boulders everywhere. We are trying to figure out a
way to climb up to the top of the cavern to get some little crystal
tubes hanging there...like stalactites. We urgently need them for
flutes. I am determined! We are hurrying and dirty and the little tubes
kept getting further away......
Hip-length glossy black hair swinging back and forth in front of me,
like someone walking. I want to touch the hair and see if it is as soft
as it looks. As I reach out my hand, I think it might be a man......
I am being shown letters, one at a time, to form a word. I am supposed
to guess the next letter. Like a gameshow or something. The first
letter is a C. I thought, Cup! I guessed the next letter would be a U.
An indistinct figure of a woman sitting on a boulder shook her head at
me and gave me another chance. I was like, Whuht? I know she's going to
tell me It's a cup! and I tried to buy a vowel or something
foggy.....She laughed and I could see her right hand come down clearly
in front of the rock, like into light while the rest of her was in
shadow. The rock seemed to be made of brown velvet. The edge of her
long sleeve had wine-colored crochet on it, about as wide as my thumb.
The pale hand started to pull the red-lettered card (with fancy brown
design all around the sides) out further--in order to see the next
letters. The next letter was an O. Everything started to tilt and I
realized I was falling! I heard a woman's voice say, Wait! Everything
blurred as she pulled out the rest of the card and I felt/heard rather
than saw the word COMPASSION"
It seems like the quest never ends, in fact even though the moon is
over, Dreamster and his group are still dreaming of the Quest for the
Holy Grail. It was definitely a fun journey to share with everyone in
tuned next month for the results of our 'Journey to the Galactic
Center'. We welcome new dreamers to join us in our adventures.
