Before I started meditating several years ago with CDs using audio technologies, I estimate I hadn't recalled much more than tiny snippets of a dream in, gosh, at least ten years and probably many more than that.
One of the things I liked immediately when I began using meditation CDs was that I started sleeping as soundly as a puddle of snoozing cat and dreaming vividly and often. For the first time in years I could clearly recall in the mornings my imaginings of the nights before.
Well, right after I started using meditation CDs, I dreamed that I was in the atrium of a large bank-like building, the front of which had huge plate glass windows. Granite columns rose from the polished floor to the top of the atrium, some four stories above my head.
I was walking through this atrium, minding my own Business, when a man suddenly ran past, shouting, "The storms coming, and the storms coming. It's headed right for us!"
He evaporated from my sight as only dream people can do.
I walked toward the plate glass windows, looked outside, and, sure enough, a terrible storm was headed right for the building, a perfect storm with tornadoes, hurricane force winds, lightning, and driving rain.
I started to run as fast as I could toward the interior of the building, but then a voice screamed, "We're all going to die!"
I looked back and, yes, the tornado's winds were driving uprooted trees and debris straight toward the plate glass windows.
I could feel myself panicking, sweating, shaking with fear, going zero at the bone.
