Dreamtime Guidance Foretells Real World Events

Ever since I became conscious of the fact that I was on a path to ascension, about a decade ago now, it has been fascinating to observe the little crumbs the Spirit guides leave for us to find and follow. Sometimes they are events in our “real,” i.e., physical life.  At other times they are sounds of music or other ethereal signs.  We learn from the land by geomancy, as if by osmosis.

And then there are dreams.


Personally, I have not been big on dreamtime guidance. That’s because they are usually as clear as mud. If I remember anything at all about a dream, it is typically just bits and pieces of a story.  Yet even they were good enough to have played a big part in some of my life-changing decisions.

For example, I moved from Arizona to Hawaii in part because of a Baobab-tree-in-sunset2008 dream.  Elizabeth and I traveled to Australia a couple of months ago because of a 2014 dream. And earlier this month,  I was being guided to go to Africa, the only continent on which I have not yet set foot in this lifetime.

But never ever, not even my wildest dreams, as they say, could I have expected a dream to foretell real life events. Especially not two years to the day BEFORE they actually happened!

This is a story about such a dream… a dream about rabbits that materialized in 3D here at the Rainbow Shower in Maui.

* * *



To benefit from the Spirit dream guidance, it is important to keep Dreamtimenotes of what we remember from a dream. Here’s what I wrote in my Dream Journal today.  I just changed the names of real people to fictitious ones:

I had a dream last night in which a note about Ursula in my handwriting was pinned on a wall by someone of our new home. In the note, I warn Ursula to stop her “ultimatums.”

The note had about 6-7 lines. I do not remember anymore exactly what it said. But I did have a sense that it was old. It came from an old archival box from the years when she and I weren’t communicating except in unfriendly terms (2009-Aug 2012). Someone had unpacked that box during the move into the new house and had pasted that note on the wall. I do not know who that was or why they did it. Elizabeth did not know it, either.

INTERPRETATION: Guess the note is a warning that Uma might be up to no good again? Yet here we are, having just stopped her rabbit incursions finally after more than three months of such hassles. The last sighting of them on our property was on Apr 18.


Ursula is a fictitious name for our very disagreeable next door neighbor.  After she interfered in 2009 with our workers and trespassed on our property during our first few months on Maui, I asked her to stop that and mind her own business.  For the first three years after that, we communicated infrequently, only in writing, and only when she bitched about one thing or another that we did or did not do.

By Aug 2012, I decided I had had enough of that. One of my daily prayers is: “I set my intention to exist in love, balance and harmony with all and for all.” So why not apply that also to a disagreeable neighbor?

So I proceeded to do certain shamanic things in order to demonstrate that to Ursula by way of my Spirit guides. And I bought and hung a number of Plumeria leis along our boundary line to send my love of Aloha to her. One thing led to another, and my Spirit guides created several incidents with Ursula’s ducks trespassing on our property that forced her to come over and talk to me in person. I hugged her and told her to relax, that all will be well. We eventually solved the duck issue together.  

Ever since, we have been on friendly terms. Until we returned to the Rainbow Shower, that is, on Jan 8 of this year.  Next day, Jan 9, 2015 – take note of that date – we saw some rabbits wandering around our house.  It turned out they were Ursula’s rabbits.

We don’t mind rabbits. But we have found out that they were eating some of our plants, including some new seedlings that I had just planted.  So I asked Ursula nicely to keep them fenced in on her side of the boundary. She said she would.

Three months later, the rabbits were still coming over for a visit to our property nearly every day. Eventually, I had to build fortifications on our side of the fence using wooden boards to try to block them. It was a very difficult task as I had to crawl on my hands and knees under some trees and bushes to do it. This process took several weeks. Because the cunning rabbits kept finding a way around them. 

Meanwhile, Ursula’s rabbits had multiplied. We started seeing their babies sneaking through the fence.

Then about 12 days ago, using a bamboo fence I had to buy, I finally plugged what was evidently the last porous stretch in the fence.  Since then, Ursula’s rabbit incursions have stopped. ]


After I wrote down my Apr 29 dream, something extraordinary happened. As I searched my Journal notes to see when the rabbit incursions stopped, I came upon a dream I had on Jan 9, 2013. That’s two years to the day BEFORE the first time we saw actual Uma’s rabbits invading our property from her side (Jan 9, 2015).

I was stunned when I reread my notes about that dream. Because it foretold some future events that unfolded two years later!

Here it is, the notes from my 2013 Dream Journal:


Alztar dreamsIn another dream, there is some sort of a hunt on rabbits going on in our neighborhood here in Haiku. Looks like the dogs are being used to hunt them down but people also seem to be helping.

For example, one of the rabbits ran up the hill from the bamboo grove toward Eric and Anne’s house. Seeing some dogs up there, he turned around and headed back down. That’s when I threw something at him. This scared him and he turned right toward the Wilsons’ property.

[Update 4-29-15: This is exactly where I would see the rabbits and would throw a bamboo stick at them to scare them. Also, Eric renter’s dog would sometime bark at them and chase them at that very spot. Back in 2013, even that house did not exist!]

By then, a pack of dogs were closing in on the rabbit. I remember cheering him on to get through the fence onto the Wilson’s property. Alas, the dogs caught him just before he made it there. As they were killing the rabbit on our second driveway, one of the dogs, a white Yorkshire terrier, no bigger than the rabbit itself, added an insult to injury. He dropped a load of shit on the suffering animal. That’s when I woke up.

INTERPRETATION; I feel that all three scenes were warnings to be to stay pure, lily white, and on a straight and narrow path. No detours. Resist all temptations. Looks like some may be lurking in the near future.

Rabbit Dreams


What’s the meaning of a rabbit as a spirit animal and as part of dream guidance?

Rabbit in MoonWell, did you know, for example, that there is a rabbit on the moon? Literally. Take a look…

This was first revealed to me some 13 years ago by a Hispanic (Mexican) lady in Phoenix, Arizona. She and I and several other people were waiting outside a yoga studio for a class to end so we can come in for our practice. It was the night of the full moon.

“It’s funny,” she said, “that you gringoes (white people) don’t see the rabbit on the moon.  In Mexico, everybody does.”

We all laughed. And for the first time in my life, I did indeed see the rabbit on the moon.

So as a spirit animal, rabbits are associated with the energies of the Moon, meaning the feminine aspects in our lives.


Meaning of Rabbits in Dreams

And what about the meaning of rabbits in dreams? Check out this interpretation…7462748_f260

In dreams, rabbits can symbolize quick thinking, ingenuity, or intuition.

“In the waking world, rabbits can appear as little more than simple, adorable, small pieces of fluff.

In truth, rabbits are cagey animals with little idea that they are tiny creatures that people perceive as having little power.

But rabbits are not as timid as they may seem–they can hiss, bite, growl, stamp their feet, and even scream.

Being prey animals, rabbits also have amazing powers of intelligence, intuition and sensing abilities. Rabbits can out-think and out-maneuver the creatures looking to make a meal of them.

Ancient cultures recognized the rabbit’s hidden traits and they appear in many mythologies–far more than one might surmise. In mythology, the rabbit is a complex symbol with meanings ranging from fear to creativity to vulnerability to resurrection and rebirth.

So what do these waking life associations and ancient mythological symbolic rabbit representations have to do with the dream rabbit’s meaning?”

Rabbit Dreams – Quick Thinking and Intuition

dreamtime-daytime“Outside of its powerful, quick legs and fleet feet, the rabbit’s ears are probably thought of as its best defense against predators as those long perky ears allow rabbits the ability to hear trouble long before its arrival.

However, a rabbit’s foot is useful for more than running. Pads in its soles allow the rabbit to sense dangerous vibrations that might be too subtle for its ears to receive.

Rabbits do not wait to analyze the information their bodies perceive. Once danger is sense, the rabbit takes immediate action. If a rabbit ends up missing danger signs and ends up being pursued, it acts solely on intuition.

A rabbit’s feet move before thinking–that is, the rabbit is guiding by intuition, not analysis.

A pursued rabbit does not develop strategies or plots or plans, it intuits the best way to move, the best way to dodge, and even the best time to keep completely still.

In dreams, rabbits can symbolize quick thinking, ingenuity, or intuition.

A rabbit dream may indicate that the dreamer herself has an agile mind or is capable of outwitting enemies or those who may wish to see him/her fail.

Rabbit dreams may also indicate that the dreamer’s intuitive abilities are in overdrive and he needs to stop over analyzing the information receiving and simply act on it, trusting that it is guiding him to the exact spot using the exact action he needs to accomplish his goals.”

So what do you say – much ado about nothing or a real life example of how amazingly accurate dreams can be? Or why it is important that we pay attention to them and take to heart the messages that our Spirit guides deliver through them.




Dreamtime Guidance to Lead to a Real World Trip?

Ever since I became conscious of the fact that I was on a path to ascension, about a decade now, it has been fascinating to observe the little crumbs of Spirit guides leave for us to find and follow. Sometimes they are events in our “real,” i.e., physical life.  At other times they are sounds of music or other ethereal signs. And then there are dreams.


Personally, I am not big on dreamtime guidance. That’s because they are usually as clear as mud. If I remember anything at all about a dream, it is typically just bits and pieces of a story.  Yet even they were good enough to have played a big part in some of my life-changing decisions.

For example, I moved from Arizona to Hawaii in part because of a Baobab-tree-in-sunset2008 dream.  Elizabeth and I traveled to Australia a couple of months ago because of a 2014 dream. And now, it seems that I am being guided to go to Africa, the only continent on which I have not yet set foot in this lifetime.

On April 5, just 12 days ago, this is what I wrote down in my Dreamtime Journal:

I had a dream in which Elizabeth and I were landing in Africa. I was very excited and said to her, “this is the first time for both of us on this continent.”

Interestingly, the plane flew UNDER A BRIDGE, like a stunt at an air show, before touching down. Everybody was safe.

Later in the day, I asked the Spirit using my magic coin if the dream they gave me means Elizabeth and I should go to Africa?

The answer was – YES.

I then asked if that should be to South Africa?

The answer was – YES.

Kruger Park and Capetown are the only two items left on my “bucket list.” I tried going there in 2006-2007 but ended up in China instead.


I have always been fascinated with Africa, and South Africa in particular.  Yet I have not made it there in this lifetime. One of the first books I sienkiewicz_postcardhave ever read as a child was “In Desert and Wilderness” (of Africa) – by Henryk Sienkiewicz (1846-1916) – the winner of The Nobel Prize in Literature 1905.  That’s when I first learned about Baobab trees, for example.

Yet, I really did not FEEL like going to Africa now that international travel has become such a hassle (see  GLOBAL TRAVEL ADVISORY: STAY HOME; KEEP AWAY FROM AIRLINE SHARKS!). And following one’s INTUITION, i.e., the heart, has always been the most reliable spirit guidepost for me.

So I just “filed” that April 5 dream in my memory and the Dreamtime Journal archives and forgot all about it.  Until today.  My Spirit guides seem to have decided to give me another nudge this afternoon (Apr 17).


Someone had posted on Facebook this image of a giant 2,000-year old Baobab tree in South Africa. You can read more about this particular tree if you click here.


As I shared it with my friends and Stewards of the Earth, other intuitions and old memories started to well up.  I just needed to connect the dots. Smiling Baobab

PS: Thought a great tree should have a face. So I added it (Apr 18). 🙂

July 2011 Dream: Ascending As a “Tree of Life”

On July 26, 2011, I had a dream about such a tree. Here’s an excerpt from my Dream Journal:

“I had a dream that I was a Tree of Life. The tree looked like a big oak or mango tree with a round crown. I felt I was that tree. I was surrounded by water but protruding from solid ground. I looked like a little atol. Then a beam of white light shone on the tree like floodlight on stage. I felt total happiness and bliss, just as I did when God’s light shone on me in the regression session with Linda. Then I realized I was ascending… as a TREE.”

And this is what I looked like as a Tree of Life as reconstructed later, thanks to Photoshop:

Mystic Medicine Card Guidance Points to Africa, Too

After I had posted those African and dreamtime messages that seem to point me to Africa, I realized I had not yet asked my Spirit guides for the daily guidance for today, April 17.  That’s when I received another intuition hit.

“Bet it will be something to do with Africa,” I thought.

IMG_3730Bingo. I drew the card Strength which features an African Seahorse. And that’s something I am very familiar with. We have a Seahorse on our lanai.  It sits on a beautiful slab of Jade and Travertine. Which sits on a gorgeous hunk of Ironwood tree. Which weighs a ton! 🙂

Anyway, here’s the symbolic and spiritual meaning of the Seahorse:

“Seahorse is symbolic of patience and contentment – they are happy with being where they are, and are in no hurry for advancement.

Further testimony to these attributes is the lack of evolution of the seahorse’s body style. They have remained with this body style without change since their inception. Content to be who they are, and not feeling the need to change – these are a few profound lessons the seahorse provides us.

However, along with a resistence to change, and a carefree approach to progress, the seahorse can be a symbol of inflexibilty or stubborness. To wit, theseahorse wraps its tail around the nearest object in order to anchor itself in turbulent waters. This is a lesson to be persistent in our goals, but be mindful that we are not too inflexible or stubborn in our achieving them.”

To Go or Not to Go?

So does that mean we should start packing our bags for a trip to South Africa?

Would a Seahorse do it? Of course, not.

Not so fast. My heart is still not in synch with the Spirit guidance. And to me, that’s the predominant factor in converting signs into action. When and if that changes, and I feel excited about going to Africa, perhaps as a result of more signs, then I may reconsider.

Until then, let us all just enjoy the pictures of the beautiful Baobab trees, such as this one under a rainbow, as published in the National Geographic.



In reaction to this story, I got this comment from Wouter Wijnaendts, a friend in the Netherlands, who grew up in the Dutch East Indies and Colombia:

“These Baobab trees in Africa are amazing, as are the Sequoia in the Redwood National Park in the US. In my opinion trees are sacred plants, that’s why I did everything to preserve the one in our garden that our neighbor wanted to cut down. 

Once my father told me, being a young boy a true story about a tree in the former Dutch East Indies (according to the natives had a spirit living in it). I always looked with admiration at trees. What a magnificent plants they are. 

The story my father told me was about a Dutch planter who wanted to cut down an old tree on his property at his plantation in spite of the warnings of his native laborers, that it was inhabited by a spirit and that it would bring him no luck. No one of his native laborers wanted to help him to cut the tree, so he had to find other people to do the job. As the tree came down, it felt on the Dutch planter killing him.”

Moral of the story? Don’t mess with sacred trees. Worship them instead.

Smiling Baobab (Great trees deserve a face. So I added one…) 🙂

As if to accentuate that point, Wouter also sent me a photo he took of a great tree in Canterbury, England, near the great Cathedral. The tree looks like a Baobab cousin, but is adorned with green moss due to the wet English climate. It’s actually an Oriental Plane tree which is believed to be one of the oldest in England.

I almost missed it. My head was down looking for my flip-flops as I stepped on the lanai this morning a little after 8 AM. I was about to go down to the gulch of the Rainbow Shower, Maui and do my morning rounds.

And then, as I lifted my head to gaze at the sunny landscape in front of our Maui home, I gasped in wonderment. A magnificent clear sky rainbow stretched across the horizon.

“What a Spirit blessing on this Orthodox Easter Sunday,” I thought.

I had just finished cleansing and opening the shamanic sacred space with Palo Santo, Frankincense and Myrrh holy smoke and a mist of Holy Water from Peru. So I felt this was an unmistakable response by the celestial realm to it.

You see, clear sky rainbows are extremely rare, even here in Hawaii. The last one I recall seeing was on Christmas morning 2013 (below). And before that, in May 2010.

“BLOOD MOON” #3 OF 2014/2015 TETRAD

Screen Shot 2015-04-04 at 2.03.21 AM
Third “Blood Moon” of the 2014-2015 Tetrad [“Live” Shots]

Well, what a night! Elizabeth and I finished watching a movie just before midnight. We were both quite sleepy. She went to bed and read for a while. I went out to watch the Full Moon for a while.

The start of the third Blood Moon of the 2014/2015 tetrad was at 12:15 AM. The total eclipse was to occur between 1:57 AM and 2:03 AM.  That seemed like not two but twenty hours away.  I was so sleepy at the time.

And then something amazing happened. By the time I returned to the house, Elizabeth was already in the Spirit realm.  But I was wide awake.

So I turned on the NASA “live” webcam of the Moon on my computer which showed a view of the Moon from the Griffith observatory in LA.  And then I went outside to set up my camera and binoculars.

Nothing fancy, like the NASA equipment.  Just a Canon G12 on a tripod. Which I kept having to bring in and out of our lanai roof because of occasional misting. And even rain showers. However, there were also enough clear sky periods during which I could take pictures.

Over time, I will edit and post them here. For now, I just wanted to share with you the first and the last shots of the total eclipse – as seen nearly simultaneously from the Rainbow Shower in Maui, Hawaii and Los Angeles, CA.

A Little Astronomy-Geography Fun Eye Test

And now, here’s a little astronomy-geography eye test for you. Take a look at this image.

LA-Hawaii Blood Moon

It is the same Blood Moon photographed from three different geographic locations at roughly the same time. Notice something different about it? Can you explain it?

Here’s a hint. This is the same left (New Zealand) image flipped upside-down:

NZ Blood Moon upside-down

Okay. So when you live in the Southern Hemisphere, you see the same sky as we do in the North, only upside-down.

Wonders of the internet. You learn something new every day. Or two… Take a look at this image:


Again, the same Blood Moon. Notice something different between the one seen in Hawaii vs. Los Angeles?

Answer: The Hawaii one is wearing its white (solar) cap to the right of center. The LA one to the left.

The reason? That’s because Maui is 2,500 miles southwest of LA. So the viewing angle is different.

Fun with astro facts and pics, huh? 🙂

First Post-Blood Moon Rainbow

This afternoon, within 15 hours of the Blood Moon. we witnessed our first post-Lunar Eclipse rainbow.  Here it is as seen from the Eucalyptus Hill, across the gulch from our home…


Blood Orange in Arizona: Precursor of Lunar Tetrad?
As Lee W Manning, my Facebook friend from the UK, shared this post, he added a comment:
“Blood Moon…Did you eat a blood orange to celebrate? Or turn into a werewolf ?” Lol wink emoticon
To which I replied:

How important was this celestial event and this Blood Moon tetrad? Well, judge for yourself.

  • First, this was the shortest Blood Moon/total eclipse of this (21st) century.   The shortest ever occurred in 1529*. 
  • Second, there will not be another “Biblical Tetrad” for almost 600 years. 

Do you think that was important enough to stay awake for?  Well, my Spirit guides certainly thought so when they kicked the sleepy dust out of my eyes so I could witness and record this amazing event for all of our sakes, especially those in Europe and Africa who did not have a chance to see it.

* * *

(c) National Trust, Petworth House; Supplied by The Public Catalogue Foundation maryeworth*NOTE ABOUT THE 1529 ECLIPSE: I was two at the time, incarnated then the future King Phillip II of Spain, Netherlands and the New World – and of England while married to Mary I (born May 21, 1527 in Valladolid, Spain).  Elizabeth was also around. She was 13 at the time, incarnated as my future wife – Queen Mary I of England, daughter of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon (born Feb 18, 1516 in Greenwich, England).

In a parallel incarnation, I was also around back then (1529) as Hatun Bob Altzar shadowBob-Shaman-July-2008Watana, the high shaman of the Inca Imperial Court. The empire was then at its apex. Francisco Pizarro, the leader of Conquistadors who would topple the Inca empire in 1572,  returned to Spain in 1529 where he was granted the license to conquer Peru by the Queen of Spain.

So what is the significance of incarnating at the time of shortest lunar eclipses in history?

That’s the question I need to ponder during our planned Easter Sunrise ceremony tomorrow morning atop Haleakala, Maui’s 10,000 ft volcano on whose slopes the Rainbow Shower lies.  Weather permitting, of course.

Here are more scientific details about the lunar tetrads…

NASA says there will be 12,064 lunar eclipses between -1999 BC and +3000 AD.

Of these 12,064 lunar eclipses, 3,479 will be total lunar eclipses.  That’s an average of less than one total lunar eclipse per year.

During that time there will be 142 Lunar Tetrads (four total lunar eclipses in a row, with no intervening partial lunar eclipse).  62 will occur between 1 AD and 2100 AD.  Of the 62, 8 will occur on Biblical Feast Days, so they are called “Biblical Tetrads”.  The 8th “Biblical Tetrad” occurs in 2014-2015 and there will not be another “Biblical Tetrad” for almost 600 years.  We are in the time of this tetrad now.

Third “Blood Moon” of the 2014-2015 TetradBlood Moon Apr 2015

Tonight’s Full Moon in Libra will be another “Blood Moon,” i.e. a total Lunar Eclipse. It will be visible in much of the world, including Hawaii – 2AM Apr 4 (see Also see “Blood Moon” of Apr 15, 2014 – – as Elizabeth and I saw it in Arizona.

This Total Lunar Eclipse or “Blood Moon” will be visible in North America, South America, Asia and parts of Australia. The Moon will be totally eclipsed (totality) for about 5 minutes. From beginning to end, it will last for 3 hours and 29 mins. This is the third eclipse in the 2014–2015 tetrad.

RAINBOW SHOWER,  Maui, Apr 3, 2015 – Last night-early this morning, just after midnight Hawaii time, the nearly Full Moon in Libra cast a giant ring around it.  I told Elizabeth about it when I got back into the house, and asked her if she wanted to see it. She declined.

And today, I was stunned to discover while writing this story that a nearly identical thing happened the night before the last Blood Moon, on Oct 7, 2014.  Except that back then we were in Scottsdale, Arizona. And now we are at our Maui home.

How does one explain that? We all know that there is no such thing as a “coincidence.”

I did not take any picture of the giant halo last night. So here is nearly identical one from six months ago.

Ring Moon 10-06-14


EAGLE’s NEST, Scottsdale, Oct 7, 2014 – Last night after 10 PM, the nearly Full Moon in Aries cast a giant ring around it. Just like its predecessor four weeks ago. Except that Elizabeth and I watched last night’s giant moon ring in Arizona. And one month ago, we saw the same thing 3,000 miles away in Hawaii (see RAINBOW MOON GROWS A GIANT HALO, Sep 7, 2014).

Take a look…

Ring Moon 10-06-14 IMG_4158 (These shots have been slightly enhanced to show the ring more clearly as I took them with just an ordinary camera without any special settings for low light photography)

Has anyone else seen such a giant ring around the Moon last night?  If so, let me know. If not, then I’ll know that this celestial phenomenon was meant just for Elizabeth and me. Like that Rainbow Moon back in Maui.

Except that this one is a harbinger of the “Blood Moon” due at 3:54 AM this coming night.  And since the forecast is calling for stormy skies here in Scottsdale, maybe the Spirit wanted to give us a preview by casting this giant ring the night before. 🙂

Today (Apr 3, 2015) is Good Friday. Every year on this day, I ask myself the question: “What’s so ‘good’ about the ‘Good Friday’ on which a holy man was brutally tortured and crucified?

So this year, I decided to do a little research. And have found out that English was the only language that uses the epithet “good” for something so obviously “bad.”


In German, for example, the day is called Karfreitag, or “Sorrowful Friday.” In most other languages I know, this day is called Holy Friday.

In English, in fact, some believe the term “Good” was developed from an older name, “God’s Friday.”

So have a Good God’s Friday!

Separated from this momentous day by just a couple of hours here in Hawaii is this year’s Full Moon in Libra. And it will be another “Blood Moon,” i.e. a total Lunar Eclipse for much of the world, including Hawaii (see
