In 2007, I got some seriously bad news.
I was at Esalen with Robert Moss and we’d just done a shamanic journey in which I visited my ancestors.
It was the most realistic journey I’ve ever done.
I could feel the sea mist on my face; smell the mildew on the ships at port. I felt like I had physically transported to 17th century New England.
It was there that I received a message that shook me to the core.
My ancestor, Jonathan Padelford, and his American Indian companion, Meeshkawa, showed me a future vision of devastation and nuclear warfare. I saw a huge mushroom cloud.
These ancestors pleaded with me to help resurrect the ancient, indigenous ways and to heal our lineage, and they told me that unless we modern folk made some significant changes in our lives, this nuclear war was a very real possibility.
I believed them.
This memory came flooding back to me recently when my colleague, Dan Reed Miller, posted the following sleeping dream on Facebook (I have his permission to share it). This dream is the perfect example of how we receive personal and global guidance in our dreams.
I’m watching a documentary about the state of the world. It is more than an ordinary documentary, more like a full 3-D reality-immersion, flying above the Earth.
There are two visions.
