DreamTime magazine, the official magazine of the International Assoc. for the Study of Dreams, has published an article that I wrote about pets and dreaming in its Winter 2017 edition. This 3-page article is an adaptation of one of my previous blog posts. Here is a like to the .PDF of the relevant pages of the magazine: goo.gl/xPduVe
In addition to recording dreams in my journal, I occasionally record "Meditation Notes". These are insights that just come to me spontaneously during a meditation, a yoga class, or upon waking in the middle of the night. I recently found fresh inspiration from re-reading the following journal entry from 2014:

Meditation Note (4:40 AM). An insight of sorts came to me after waking in the middle of the night. It is difficult to describe in intellectual terms and the concept is really not “new” for me. It just seemed like a deeper understanding of the concepts I’ve been entertaining for years. The general idea is that I’m simply vibrating in a never-ending “now”. The linear patterns that I encounter on a day to day basis (e.g. the sun rising and setting; the apparent slow aging of my body; the patterns of people and animals moving about in a very linear way) are illusions that create a particular kind of experience. If I can disentangle myself from these recurring patterns, I’m left with the idea that I’m just shifting my focus / vibration and experiencing manifestations consistent with my recent focus / vibration. All the things that could appear as manifestations already exist. I make them visible through my focus / vibration. One analogy might be Google Earth. All the data is already there (with Google constantly adding to it) and I just zoom around the field of data. When a manifestation appears, it generally has to appear in accordance with a logical sequence because that is how Earth life patterning is set up – manifestations generally arrive in a linear way that you can explain to your friends. But their true nature is dream-like and they could appear, disappear, and shift instantaneously (as they do in dreams). They only appear in logical or linear sequence because that is what all of us participating in Earth agreed upon before we came in. I don’t need to exercise any “effort” to change the manifestations that appear before me. This can be accelerated by releasing resistance, judgment, ideas of limitation etc. I can simply focus / vibrate and enjoy what flows in next as a manifestation. Like a radio dial, I’m basically adjusting my tuner. Instead of a limited number of radio stations, my tuner can select from an immense field of manifestation options.
