It has been quite a while since I had an interesting dream that was still able to recall upon waking up. Today, Sep 6, was one of those days.

Here are the notes from my Dream Journal, along with my interpretation of what this dream might mean. I would appreciate hearing from you if you also have some other ideas. Thank you.


In the second dream, there was a priest who looked like a young Robin Williams. He wore black robes. He held three glasses of red wine on a tray. Without spilling them, he was weaving and bobbing like a bird, spiraling his way toward the altar. He was followed (or chased?) by three black birds.

When he got to the altar, he began to read from a giant plasma screen, like a movie screen at the place where there is usually an organ. It was a handwritten note that sounded like a sermon.

Then I recognized my handwriting and realized it was a page from my journal. It was written in blue ink on striped paper. Yet I have no earthly connection with this priest. I had never seen him or talked to him before. So how did he read from my Dreamtime Journal?

Vatican ceremony

INTERPRETATION: The three glasses of red wine represent the Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Ghost). The three black birds are the guardian angels. They are assisting the priest in his ascension.

The sermon he was reading was about ascension. Since I had written it in my journal, it follows that I must be one of this priest’s Spirit guides. Which is why we had this telepathic connection through which he was able to access my thoughts and guidance.

More on Blackbird Symbolism

Blackbirds are, for some people, considered a good omen. Others believe that the Blackbird brings the lessons learned in meditation. It is also associated with travel to the Otherworld and the mysteries found there. Blackbird people are good to call upon when spiritual matters are at hand, and often, while rare, they are the best people to have when in a group.
The blackbirds iridescent black plumage holds the energies of mysticism and magic. Druid legends say that the birds of Rhiannan are 3 blackbirds which sit and sing in the World tree of other worlds. Their singing puts the listener into a sleep or a trance which enables him or her to travel to the otherworld. It was said to impart mystic secrets.
Those with this medicine often have a hypnotic influence on others as well as an uncanny ability to move between the seen and unseen worlds with clarity. They make excellent shamans and trance channellers.
Blackbirds are timid and prefer their own company over the company of others. In humans shyness and insecurity in group settings is common. Vulnerable to outside influences those with this totem need to remember to clear accumulated influences from their energy field on a regular basis. The male’s distinctive song during breeding season is loud and melodious with flute like qualities. Males often sing from high perches and both sexes produce a variety of sounds which include mimicking other birds.
Blackbird medicine people love to sing and have the ability use their voice to heal and inform. They are also good ventriloquists.
Blackbirds spend much of their time on the ground. Its locomotion includes walking, climbing and hopping forward and backwards. They forage for food in open spaces although cover is always near by. When foraging in leaf litter under trees they sound like people walking . In humans this suggests an ability to remain grounded in the earth energies while walking a spiritual path.
When resting the blackbird is frequently seen stretching, legs extended back, side wings in full extension, tail spread, and the head tilted to one side as if listening. Yoga and movement therapy are beneficial for those that hold this totem. The blackbirds flights are low, short and undulating but fast and direct over open country. They move with determination and focus and can teach us how to do the same.
When blackbird flies into your life your connection with nature and the forces of creation increase. The magic of the underworld surfaces in your life. Awareness is heightened and change on a cellular level begins. The blackbird teaches you how to acknowledge your power and use it to its fullest.
