Dreamtime. A powerful time of adventure, learning and growth I always look forward to. I had this dream a while ago, and felt guided to get it down on paper:
I was invited to go to a highschool reunion of sorts, and to say I was less than enthusiastic would be an understatement! I didn’t want to go out of my way to spend time reminiscing about the good ol’ days, when to me there was much which was less than good. Somehow i got convinced to attend the soiree, and got myself all dolled up.
As I was getting into my car, snowflakes began gently falling from the sky slowly and rhythmically. During the drive, I began to think about the situations I would soon be facing, the potentially awkward conversations and the terrible food. I tried to focus on the road, the scenery and the snow which was now falling with more vigour. Sadly, my thoughts would return to my worry and anxiety.
A short time later, I found myself at the hotel where the reunion was being held. I touched up my lipstick, and made my way to the entrance. Friends standing outside greeted me warmly; perhaps this wouldn’t be as horrible as I had envisioned.
As I broached the threshold, I felt my heart start to pound heavily in my chest. I began to circulate around the room as if I were floating on air, zipping from painful conversations with people I used to know as a young girl which seemed to fill the ballroom. I felt the knots in my stomach twisting and my breath becoming shallow from my anxiety so purely; it was as if I were awake. I suddenly went into fight or flight mode, and I decided I had enough- I was outta here!
I found myself infront of the hotel eager to head back to my car, when someone said to me, “You’re not thinking about leaving already are you?” I nodded that indeed I was heading out. He then said, â€œWell you can’t leave safely- look infront of you- this is one serious snowstorm! The manager of the hotel is giving us rooms for the night, but we have to take our baggage to our rooms on our own. “Oh, I see,” I conceded, “It is really coming down now isn’t it? I suppose I’ll be staying a little longer than I had planned.”
I turned around, and went back into the hotel, but now I found I had a big black suitcase’s handle in my left hand pulling the wheeled bag behind me. I started up the spiral staircase, heading towards the conference room. There were still presentations and awards which had to be given out to round out the reunion events. All the people from my youth alongside me were starting to file into marble pillared room decked out with plush carpeting with our luggage in tow. I settled on a seat in the third row. We all seemed to be protective of our baggage, keeping it as close to our person as possible. Old friends and those who weren’
t the kindest to me, one at a time started to head up to the stage. Some had stories and others went up to receive awards. As my mind was beginning to wander, I heard my name being called over the PA. I snapped back into focus, and stood up slowly, looking around me nervously. Did I really want to go up there?
Deep exhale, on my feet- I’m going to do this, and I had to bring my luggage with me. The walk up to the stage was a struggle: the immense loft of the carpet made the dragging of my luggage so straining. Why hadn’t I noticed how much my baggage was slowing me down? I finally made my way to the stage area, slightly winded to boot! The emcee said, â€œYou must lift up your bag and place it on the conveyer belt. “What?” I gasped. “Why do I have to put my bag on that conveyor belt?” I inquired. The emcee explained, “You have everything you need right now. Trust me, you really don’t need that old suitcase anymore. Pop it on the conveyor belt and get on up here girl!”
I found myself trying to rationalize what was said to me, but my mind was whirling and strength of my heart beating in my chest deafened my own thoughts. Throwing reasoning to the wind, I went with my gut and started lifting my bag up. I heaved with the dead weight of the luggage. I was surprised how heavy it was. It didn’t feel so immense when I was dragging it behind me, but now carrying it made me realize how much it truly was weighing me down! I finally got it up on the conveyor belt, and as I ascended the steps I watched my baggage fade into nothingness. Standing on that stage, my heart felt light; and reminded me of the childhood performances that this roomful of people and I once shared many years ago.
The ceremony went on for a while longer, and then I found myself in the lobby of the well-appointed hotel. It was now day, and we were all getting ready to check out. One of my friends who had greeted me upon my arrival the evening before, came over and said, “Hey what a fun night, I bet you’re glad you ended up having to stay afterall! And hey, check it out, looks like the storm is over- You will have a safe journey home.” I looked over my shoulder and saw the early morning sun bursting through the delicate clouds. A wonderful journey indeed.
In a quest to move forward on this amazing journey, I have found it is so important to do a spring cleaning of my life regularly. In this way, room is made for all the new and amazing experiences as I release the old ones.
How does this dream speak to you? What is it you need to release? What must you remember to celebrate? “As a child you were aware of your contact with God and the angels. You can always reopen your connection with Heaven the moment you let go of your fears. Ask the angels to help you with this releasement.” (Doreen Virtue)

I have discovered I can travel in my dreams! It isn’t a myth, in our sleep, the dreams we have are real, energy exchanges. Last night, as I set myself with the task of sleeping, choosing to forego the sleeping pill – I was well aware that I was also choosing not to block the nocturnal visions and voices. Sometimes for me it just seems easier to take the sleeping pill, having been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, sleeping is, and has always been a rarity. Before I had children, I had the luxury of sleeping from time to time, so I value my sleep time even more these days. I now understand, in knowing Kim, that the nocturnal fits I have, body buzzing, whirling images and noises, are actual energy exchanges, as well as energy releases. Not all dreams have deep and profound meanings, or messages of clairvoyance, but certainly there is just as much activity at night as there is during our ‘waking’ hours – if not more. When you think of it, for most people, lying down to sleep at night, is the one and only time we allow our bodies to rest. However, while our bodies are resting, there is much mental activity at work. As I drifted off to sleep last night, knowing I wouldn’t get that ‘deep’ rest without the sleeping pill, I started having conversations with Kim. I don’t recall what we were doing, or talking about now, but at the time it was fun, and just as magical as the time I spend with her in the waking hours. Intermittently, during my Kim time, I would pop out of that space, into a space where I was playing with my daughter, having a great old time, or catching up with my hubby. I realized during these delicious dreams, feeling more awake than asleep, that the night time can be a very productive time. It can be time to meditate, rest, and still spend time with our loved ones, while also healing past wounds and relationships. Much of what we don’t say, or might be afraid to say, while awake, comes up in our dreams. We are given the opportunity to freely be ourselves, and stand our ground, defend our rights, and even do unlimited things – like flying.
At 3:00 am, I sat up fully awake, feeling like I hadn’t slept much, but had done a lot of journeying. Throughout the night, I was coughing and coughing, as I have been wrestling with a cold for a week. Again, all the good stuff was comes up at night. At one point, while playing with my daughter, I realized my son wasn’t visiting me in my dreams. So naturally, I began to look for him in my dream. I couldn’t find him, and I started to grow concerned. I said to my husband, “where is Nate?”, but somehow I knew I was over-reacting and that he was okay. I knew instinctively that he was venturing in his own dream worlds. Within what felt like seconds of thinking this thought in my dream, of worry for him, I awoke to my son screaming for Mommy. “I want my Mommy!” He insisted that he come in bed with me and cuddle. We had such fun cuddling, that I found myself not wanting to go back to sleep, despite the coughing and being ‘tired’. At one point he looked to me and said, between putting his fingers in my nose, and messing up my hair – “Mommy, are you ahh’right mommy?” I said, “yes, mommy just has a cold.” To which he replied, “Mommy, drink your water mommy, please.” After he said that a couple of times I got up and got a glass of water, having been told that was what I needed. When I came back to the room, he brushed his hand over my throat and cheek, my eyes were closed, and I felt the most delicious, happy, tickling sensation in my throat and across my cheek. At the same time, my coughing eased up, my throat felt more at ease, and I realized he was giving me healing energy.
This connection, between dream time and wake time, is so miraculous. When there isn’t time during the day to accomplish problems, we can tackle them in our sleep, and if we can’t be with someone in our waking hours, we can always visit them in our sleeping hours. But, it seems that if you really need (not want) to connect with someone during your waking hours you will. I was looking for my son in my sleep, and he woke up to find me. Instead of me mothering him, he was mothering me. Our Dreamtime, is a profound time of healing and connection, whether the dreams appear profound or not, whether we remember them or not, in our dreams we have unbounded potential and power. We are free to be ourselves, free of the limits of time and space.
In truth, we are all connected – even in our dreams.
I have always hoped that Angels were real, but thought it was my wishful thinking, until one day, when my 5 year old son asked me if i talk to Angel Michael. Surprised by this, I asked him if he spoke to angel Michael and he said yes “I talk to him at night in my pillow”. Now, my son has often told me that his pillow tells him things while he sleeps and I assumed he meant dreams, but to hear that he has been talking to angels completely changes that asumption. When I asked my son how he had heard about Angel Michael he said in a very confident voice “Cause Mike told me he was an angel!”
Childrens minds are so open to the beauty of the universe that I am sure that for some reason Archangel Michael is speaking to my son and I for one am going to continue to try to open my mind to the beauty and secrets that the universe holds for each of us. If I had not met you Kim, I probably would have completely missed this amazing sign from the angels and I thank you for starting me on the path of spitual discovery and awareness.
A quick note by Kimspirational:
Jesse Todd is not alone when it comes to having visitations through dreams from past loved pets
I had some very uplifting and “real” dreams after my dog Raven died and so when Jesse submitted his dream below about his beloved cat that passed, I couldn’t stop thinking about my baby girl. Reading Jesse’s words left me feeling at ease, knowing that she too is at home and at peace, like Raggy, the cat. The following pic of Raven is dedicated to all those that have lost a best friend (from the animal world).
Miss you Raven, though I know that you’ll always be with me, sometimes I miss just hearing you snore beside me. Thank you for keeping me company all those lonely nights.
My dream came to me when I was a young child, due to the death of a beloved animal friend. I was in the car with my mother when we took one of our cats to the vet. He died of an infection that was painful to watch. I witnessed his suffering, and it really stuck with me afterwards.
I couldn’t stop picturing how much pain he had been in, and would cry myself to sleep thinking that there was nothing anyone could do to help him. It was shortly after his death that the dreams I never forgot to this day began.
The first came to me much like a normal non-sensical dream would, in the home I grew up in. I started out unaware that I was dreaming, going about whatever business had caught my attention. I was in the dining room of my home, walking across the room. As dreams have a habit of doing, everything shifted and for a moment time stood still. As it would happen, at the same time I suddenly knew that I had been dreaming and something had changed. I knew someone else was in the room with me, and that I should turn around. When I turned to face the doorway, there was my cat (Raggy we called him) looking back at me.
As you can imagine, I was excited to see him alive and well. I ran to him with tears in my eyes, exclaiming that I’d missed him and wished that he could stay. I knew he had to leave, though of course he (being a cat) said nothing. I also knew that he wanted me to know something.
This is where it gets a little hazzy for me, because it was then that (with his paw) he slid to me a gift. I ignored the gift, leaving it unopened. I wanted him to stay, ignoring the fact that he was giving me a message. When he finally left, the dream resumed where it had left off. Once again I was unaware that I was dreaming, and that Raggy had ever been there.
The next day I remembered the dream but thought nothing of it and went about my business. However, it was that night that everything became much clearer to me.
I had another dream, and this one much more clear than the last. Next door to my house was the Seaweed Pie Cafe, a tourist attraction for my small town growing up. In the dream, everyone in town was nextdoor skating across a thin sheet of ice in the middle of summer. Of course, I was there walking amongst them all.
Like the night before, I suddenly came to the realization that I was in a dream, but someone else was sharing it with me. When I turned to face my yard, I could once again see my cat waiting for me. This time, however, he was not alone.
I walked up warily to my cat, who stood by a man in a brown trench coat and hat that left his face shaded from the light. He didn’t feel threatening to me, but he definitely didn’t feel like he was a part of my dream either. My first thought was “Is this God?” At the time I knew the answer was no, but I was sure that he was more than just a messenger.
I greeted Raggy again and said my goodbyes, feeling that all familiar pang of loneliness as he left. As I turned my attention to the man, he told me I didn’t need to be sad anymore. He pointed to the sky, and when I looked up I saw a pure white owl flying through the sky. The man told me that owl was for Raggy, and that he had moved on.
I can’t to this day quite remember his exact words, but he told me that Raggy had ascended to a better plain and that he would be born again in time. I remember feeling comforted by his words, and woke up a much happier child than before. I was positive I had been visited by an angel, possibly even an archangel. The man had seemed so powerful to me.
For a long time I didn’t tell anyone what I dreamed, but I always remembered the strangely real quality of that dream.
What made me write to you about it is that I saw in the booklet you gave me, that a symbol for rebirth is the white owl. I never knew that until I saw it in your booklet, and so I thought I would share that story.I think that dream helped me be open to anything outside the norms that society seems to place on people. Who knows, had I not ever had those dreams, maybe I would never have signed up for your classes!
Anyways, thanks again for the experience and I look forward to seeing you in the future.

Love, Healing and Angel Dust From My Heart to Yours,
Kimspirational, a.k.a. Kim Doucette
While dealing with a terribly dark period in my life about ten years ago, suffering from depression and feeling that I had no where to turn, I had made a plan to “end it all”. My plan consisted of a way that I thought my family would think it was an accident and I hadn’t told anyone about it. Well, one especially troubling day I told my son, who was 7 @ the time that I needed to go for a drive by myself. He looked at me very angrily shouting “You just want to get into an accident and never come back” Needless to say I was flabbergasted, so much for my plan. I honestly knew then that an Angel spoke through him. This led to a complete understanding of our spirituality and how it can affect our lives if we just “believe”.
I am pleased to say that I no longer suffer with depression as this Angel encounter prompted me to seek professional help.
I love stories about angels. People send me their stories all the time and they touch me so much. I never tire of hearing stories of self-healing and Angel visitations. Here is one that really touched my heart this week.
Both my sister & I were playing outside our newly constructed home. It was spring time – all kinds of water & mud a delightful combination for a three & four year old. It was a sunny morning & the mud seemed to sparkle all around us. There was a hole dug behind the house which had filled up with water. I was drawn to this hole for some reason & got too close. My foot slipped in the mud & I fell in the water – it was too deep for me and I remember bobbing up & down a few times. At one point, I had my eyes open & was looking at the sun as I went up and down struggling to breathe at the same time. I realized at that moment that if I went down one more time that I wasn’t coming back up. I reached out my hand to my three year old sister. As soon as our hands touched we both got an electric shock. It seems like I can’t remember what happened next but somehow my little sister managed to drag me out of the water. The last thing I remember is dumping water out of my little rubber boots and crying my eyes out. It was only when my sister & I were adults did we realize the nature of the situation – I don’t know how my sister was able to save me. To this day my sister will not go near water and she never did learn how to swim as a child or adult. I know that someone was there to help us – an angel.
