Dream Interpretation


Meaning of Dream:

Sitting on convertible: Sitting on something that can be changed

Convertible top needs to close: Need to close something

Being interrogated, fear I will say too much: Need to say less

Writer friend: This is about my writing, the book I’m just finishing

At a make up class: make something up: fiction

Not interested in make up class: Stick to the facts, don’t writing something that isn’t interesting

Dream interpretation: (I’m just finishing revising Blessed. Before bed, looking over the last chapter.) I need to close the book, finish it, say less, and, in finishing it, stick to the facts, and only include what is interesting to my audience.

To your dream success,

Carol Chapman

Greetings to Malcolm and Debbie Stephenson


Carol Chapman

This is my first comment on someone else’s blog. Therefore, there is a good chance I have not used “Live Writer” correctly.

Nonetheless, I appreciate the opportunity to comment on your lovely site at http://www.MalcolmStephenson.com.

Thank you, Malcolm and Debbie for commenting on my blog, CarolChapmanLive.com.

I find your post on the enforcement of anti-smoking laws in the UK quite interesting. Here in the US “No Smoking” has become pretty much the norm. However, whenever I’ve traveled to Europe, I’ve found that people smoke quite a lot in comparison.

From what I’ve read, second-hand smoke can be quite dangerous to a person’s health just from being in the same room with a smoker. I wonder if Europe is on the road to becoming a smoke free environment.

Thank you for posting the interesting information.

All the best,

Da Vinci Code

Hi again. Lately I’ve been watching a DVD called, The Da Vince Code Decoded. The most interesting part of this video was the section on the Nag Hammadi Library–1st and 2nd century Christian writings in Coptic, the language of the ancient Egyptians.

If you’ve read my book, Blessed, you know that the Copts are part of the Eastern Orthodox Church from which Rome and the Roman Catholic church split centuries ago. I had the privilege of staying with a modern-day Coptic Christian family in Egypt. They brought me to their hometown of Assiut where apparitions of the Virgin Mary were appearing. The Copts were started by the apostle Mark.

I’m excited about the Nag Hammadi Library, which is a book by James M. Robinson, because it translates writings by early Christians who are not associated with the Roman Catholic church. Very interesting. And quite different, according to Robinson on the DVD–that the resurrected Christ was not a flesh person but more like a light being.

Also very much like the Virgin Mary apparition in Assiut and also my memories of Atlanteans.

Take care and keep well,

Angels in the Garden? by Carol Chapman


 Lily-0070 4 Web 72dpiTake a look at this. I’m continuing to take photos that can be used in future nature calendars. In addition, I’m using the photographs like this one of the lily, plus the photos from this year’s Divine in Nature: with Quotes from Edgar Cayce, to make greeting cards.

Do you see the circle behind the lily stamens? It wasn’t until I printed the image on a greeting card that I saw the circle.

My friends have lately been discussing photographs showing orbs in them. A couple of my Study Group members brought in photos  showing similar orbs. They say that the orbs are supposed to be angels.

I didn’t think I’d ever have the opportunity to take an orb / angel photo until I printed this photo. I went back and looked at a number of the pictures I took of this lovely Lily.

And, guess what? Two more photos have orbs in them. I’ve intensified the colors in the images with Photoshop so you can see the orbs better.

Both Photos number 1 and 3 have more head room in them and show two orbs. The orbs also appear to be moving.

Do you know anything about orbs and angels? Have you photographed any?

Eek! Did you see my entry on July 1st? Every time I wrote the word, “it’s” or “aren’t” or anything within “quotation marks” the blog technology–that strange, behind-the-scenes power in cyberspace–gave the word all these strange letters and signs. 

James Maduk, my internet guru says this happened because I posted that blog directly into the WordPress Blog instead of posting the blog through Live Writer.

He also says that I need to stop fooling around with the different colors, fonts, and sizes of the type I’m using.

So, today, I’m following his suggestion to see if it will work better.

This is written in Live Writer, with the default font (even though I wish it were bigger), no special colors, absolutely straight. So, let’s see if it will post straight as well.

Assuming this works, you can view some of James’ fre.e online marketing videos after registering at Free Registration Page.

Wishing you the best,

Incubating a Dream on Blogging

You aren’t going to believe this! It’s 5 in the morning and I’m up writing in my blog—because I just had a dream telling me to!

Yesterday, I attended my Edgar Cayce Search for God Study Group meeting. We often help each other with interpreting our dreams. I brought a two-word dream. It had awoken me in the night about a week ago. I woke up and wrote down in a random page of my dream journal, without turning on the light, the words: “Desmond Outside.” Strange kind of dream, don’t you think?

So, the discussion went like this: “Do you know a Desmond?”

“Yeah, sure, Desmond Morris, author of the Naked Ape. I wrote about him in When We Were Gods saying that I disagree with Desmond Morris. We are not only the result of evolution from an ape. We are also a soul.”

But then, why “Outside?”

The suggestion: Before bed, ask for the dream in different symbols. Anyway, it may be that the dream has nothing to do with Desmond Morris. Best to “incubate” a dream that will reveal the meaning of the first dream.

OK, so back to the dream last night. I dreamt about a little square that I need to write words in. But, in the dream, I’m afraid to write the words. And, I’m shown that I’ve written most of the words elsewhere so it will be easy to write these words.

I wake up in the night and, without turning on the light, open up my dream journal to a random page, and write the dream down getting a general idea of where on the page I’m writing from my nightlight.

I check the glow of my alarm clock and it says it’s 4 AM.

I try to go back to sleep, laying in bed thinking about the dream. The interpretation comes to me. The small square is my blog. And, I haven’t been writing in it for a while. And, I am afraid to write in it because I’m afraid I may be writing the wrong thing. I decide I need to write in my blog in the morning to honor my dream. OK, time to go back to sleep.

It doesn’t happen. Now, it’s 4:30 AM. I have a rule. If I’ve been lying in bed awake for 30 minutes or more, it’s time to get up and do something. This doesn’t happen often, but I find it’s a helpful rule instead of laying there doing nothing.

So, I turn on the light, and guess what? The random page on which I chose to write this dream incubated to explain “Desmond Outside,” is exactly on the page where I already wrote, “Desmond Outside.” In fact, I’ve written last night’s dream exactly on top of the words, “Desmond Outside.”

Somehow, my unconscious knew how to find that page in the dark and also to write on top of the words to show me without a doubt, this is the interpretation of “Desmond Outside.” Although I don’t get the connection, that’s what I’ve done to honor my dream . . . I wrote in my blog . . . at 5 AM in the morning.

Photographs of Fish Hawks

I’m all fired up about making calendars. This weekend, I went out to get photographs for next year’s calendar.

 The ospreys are nesting on markers along the river. We went out sailing in the morning.

Morning light is fantastic for taking pictures. It’s when the light is fresh, clean, and soft—not harsh like it is at mid-day. Overhead light on a sunny day also makes strong shadows that can detract from an otherwise fantastic picture. Many people don’t realize that overcast can give the best pictures because the light is more even.

I got some wonderful pictures of ospreys—fish hawks. They have the most amazing yellow eyes.  © 2007 Carol Chapman
