Getting Visited By A Murdered Friend
October 25, 2016

I just want to share this out here before I totally forget most the details. Last night my murdered friend from high school showed up (after a long time that I have nto seen him in my dreams) with some other friends from my former long term employer back in the Philippines.

It’s some sort of an office once a week get together.  Oddly, every one that matter were there, jumbled together with some people I have known from other circumstances.  But I felt happy seeing most of them,  at least in that dream setting.

Meinard was giving me instructions to take care of my left foot, which foot I have been experiencing some pains lately. He knew about it. Who knows why he showed up to tell me his thoughts about my painful foot. Perhaps I have to pay attention to this case, as well as to the significance of seeing my painful foot in my dream (last night).

Thank you friend,  I have been missing you really.


Dreamed of Getting Rid of My Last Name & My Family Last Night
May 25, 2015

While doing my yoga practice early today, I recalled images from my most recent dream that took place last night. I saw my Aunt, my Mom’s eldest sister, who is a physician (OB-GYN). I saw some other relatives, too, and we were having some thing like a reunion to my eyes. I recall we we’re having a serious discussion. I recall being angry in the dream at such level that I blurted out that I want to get rid of my last name as my entire family. Of course, everybody was shocked. My Aunt couldn’t say a thing. The gathering went on and on. And I woke up from sleep after hearing some noises from my roommates who were going down the stairs, and probably preparing for this Memorial Day’s celebration.

Seeing a Former Officemate Who Has Migrated To Canada with His Family in my Dream Last Night
May 15, 2014

I recall seeing during my sleep last night in my dream one of those officemates I had with when I was still with in Itochu Corporation (Manila Branch). He’s a very nice looking Chinese-descent fellow, married, from the upper middleclass, and graduated from the Ateneo de Manila University. He spent a few years with the same company with us, and I know he became a CEO of a technology-related company back in the Philippines. I know that he moved his family and himself to Canada. I wonder if he’s doing good or if he’s in good health. I wonder why I saw him in my dreams last night, but I can’t recall the details. I also had another dream last night, which I can’t recall, too.

Why do I see characters like this former officemate of mine? He and I were not exactly close but we’ve known each other well enough. We’re friendly to each other. We just don’t belong to the same milieu, hence, we don’t have much to connect with. I really hope he’s doing good. This gives me an idea that i have to contact him on Facebook where we are still connected. I can work on getting connected with him. Let’s see how it will go from there.


It must be born…
June 13, 2013

It must be borne in mind that the tragedy in life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. It isn’t a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream. It is not a disaster to be unable to capture your ideal, but it is a disaster to have no ideal to capture. It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace not to have stars to reach for. Not failure, but low aim is sin. (Dr. Benjamin Elijah Mays)

Each night we a…

Each night we are offered a doorway to infinity: our dreaming life. And when the dreamscape is explored via the heart’s wisdom, the waking world becomes bathed in wonder.

A Friend Who’ve Been Wanting to Sleepover in My House

The Eastchester-Dyre Avenue subway station, in...

I recall the number 5 or 4 train of the MTA system here in NYC being mentioned in a most recent dream. I also recall a friend whom I’ve not seen for some time now. And he has been calling me on the phone and trying to fix a schedule with me so that he can sleep over in the place where I live here in Staten Island. I was not actually against the idea, as long as he would not mind being in a bedroom that is filled with books nearly up to the ceiling. And I was amused by him having to call me quite suddenly. as if there’s something urgent happening that I had to be involved with right away.

Upon waking up, I thought this could be a death premonition. I recall the number ‘4’ is a symbol death, although it was just mentioned in passing as in my friend was asking me about the last stop of the 4 train (which is Woodlawn on Jerome Avenue in the Bronx). Or if it was the 5 he was referring to, it would be Eastchester-Dyre Avenue also in the Bronx). The word ‘Dyre’ sound like ‘die’ when pronounced. And what else came into my mind is that my friend may probably soon pass on. Do I have to call him and have a chat with him? I’ve no major issues with him; I just prefer not being turned into a doormat every time I meet up with him. And I didn’t want to feel like I’m living in an undesirable place, which I feel every time I hear him mention Staten Island. He’d imply this place as being the trash depot of NYC, which certainly it was for so many years, but which specific place has been gradually turned into a greenery where an emerging park (Fresh Kills Park) 3 times larger than Central Park now stands. And that landfill was also used by so many workers to sort out and identify the collected remains of those who perished from the Twin Towers in 9/11; a nearby spot can be visited where the rest have been buried (with un-identifiable human remains).

By the way, this friend also appears in my first book, Angels In Disguise (with its blog link here), but I don’t remember telling him about it. His name was not directly mentioned at all in the pages; he would know right away that it’s him that I was talking about when he gets to read the book. Probably, my dream about him could be more related to this fact. I have to contact him so I can tell him about the book one of these days.

Being With a Black Bird in a Recent Dream; I Wonder What’s the Meaning?
May 12, 2012

Last night, I recall having been in a dream that I felt like I was in a 30s-horror movie. I recall having with me a black bird, which was very smart and has a long beak, and it  was so actively engaged in whatever that’s happening around it. The bird looked so curiously active. And the bird was not that friendly to me. I took it in both hands and we went to a house that’s dark but with some blue lights on. And I tried to keep the bird in an improvised caged but the bird won’t agree to it, such that it would keep on trying to come out free from the improvised cage. And the bird would get so mad at me, but I would just keep on putting it back to its improvised cage.

And the dream would continue and I would learn that the house was haunted. That somebody was murdered there, which somehow scared me but I still kept on keeping the bird in the cage. And I don’t recall anymore details…Image


Sayings on Dreams! VI

Carte de Visite of Edgar Allan Poe

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.” — Edgar Allan Poe

Does this mean that those who have a common sense approach to dreaming (who I believe represent those who have their dreams within the range of their vision during daytime) would usually take careful steps to turn their dreams into something more materially substantial and can be held and experienced by the senses? And that those who merely get into dreaming when sleeping in the evening are some sort of a disadvantaged lot, to some extent, i.e., because they don’t take action on what they’ve dreamt when asleep in the evening? Sounds complicated, it seems. And I’ve my own misgivings on this but I like to see my dreams turning into something very real before my eyes—and some of these dreams have actually been realized in the passing of time.  It’s important to possess some faith in the value of dreams in every day life, so they’ll have better chances of becoming real.
