I found my circle of vampire people. The area I found myself in was a huge hollow dark gray room with very high ceilings in (what felt to me like) an old French castle. They welcomed me with opened arms as I gracefully said my hellos to my familiar souls. As I took part in the gathering, I also noticed myself watching from above looking down and I said to myself “I am here and I am there, how very fascinating this all is.”
None of us looked like vampires, actually many people in the group were my familiars and I recognized them from both my waking and dreaming realms. As I felt a little stunned with what it meant for us to be vampires, someone read my mind and kindly informed me that I was dead and not of my body. They continued on to say, I took this physical form so I could do the work I needed to get done. I nodded a thank you and replied, “So usually vampires are bad, does this mean I am a bad person?” My friends in the circle laughed until I heard a voice say, “Humans are silly. They are scared of everything that is not of human form.” I nodded a thank you understanding quickly what he meant. Within the circle gathering someone who I once knew very well (in my present waking form) began to lead with instructions of our next task. As I listened I heard myself up above begin to whisper, “Ohh this movie is so familiar, I have seen this before, haven’t I?”
The more I watch myself engage in the gathering, I kept wondering if this was a movie I had seen already? Or was I part of someone else’s dream? Have I been here? Or have I seen this? The chattering of my voice continues back and forth in my head. It began to frustrate me to listen to myself rather than listening to my purpose within the gathering. Finally I blurted out “Ohh yes yes this is a dream.” Suddenly I became very lucid. Everyone in the circle looked at me and then looked above at my other Self. They all smiled. “Don’t worry; sometimes we forget where we have been or why we are here. But trust us you return and become this form when you are needed most. “But I swear I have dreamt this dream before, or is it a movie I saw.”
I suddenly woke up. My mind was retracing my steps and the images of where I was. I could not help but think, “It has been so long since I have returned.”
I am not able to recall experiencing any vampire type dreams before recently. I have had dreams where someone is feeding off my energy, draining me –symbolically representing the actions of a vampire, however, I don’t recall a dream in which I was told I was a vampire and I was at a gathering of so called vampires. This dream confused me and I went directly to a few dream dictionaries to try and find what resonating with me and my dream. Nothing did.
I understand that Vampires can represent: Feeding off others energy, draining others energy (or others draining your energy); and suffocating. It is possible that vampires in dreams can symbolize seduction, sensuality, fear and death. If the dream relates to someone in your waking life a vampire dream could be translated as this someone whose charm may ultimately be harmful, such as; drug addiction, sexual obsession, or the like.
Now I am sitting here trying to figure out the dream. Symbolically what vampires represent does not have anything to do with my dream, I know this. I am unable to relate the symbolic meaning of vampires to my waking life. So as always I tend to look at dreams from another perspective. There is something more to this dream rather it being aspects, or characters, of myself. I do not feel it has to do with my energy being drained, or me draining the energy of others, or even being involved with someone harmful. No, rather, it feels as if I may have gone back into my past, or to a parallel universe. It feels as if I was perhaps in three places at once; in my bed physically sleeping, somewhere beyond time in another country with a circle of souls (I have never been to France but I find myself there often in my dreams), and up above watching and like a cord connecting myself to myself in the past, present, and future. But why? Why a vampire? I was comfortable in this dream. I felt at ease, there was no fear in this dream, just questions and curiosity.
Every so often, when I find myself in a bind with one of my dreams, I will ask a friend their perspective just to see if they are able to highlight something I am unable to see.
I sent my dream to my friend Kathy in New Zealand and this is what she replied with:
Vampires yes I’ve had this dream too! A year or so ago, in my dream it was like they were existing above – as if living in a space 10 feet higher than the human race. I had become one too!
I think we look and act different to most people. So maybe it’s another form we can see ourselves in — going way out here, beyond. Maybe this “Vampire” does exist and this is a true reality?? Where did it all begin for it to be a part of human history/myth/belief? In my dream I was quite comfortable too. We were not feeding on the blood of humans or anything like that, just existing. Maybe the blood sucking fear we have come from is some type of religious belief/brainwash. Interesting, another dimension maybe? P.S I’m not one of those vampire crazed fans.
I am relieved to hear that I am not alone in my perspective in this dream, or am I alone in having such a fascinating intense dream of vampires. Human beings are not the end all of souls, there are vast realms of beings that remain invisible behind the curtain. Dreams are here to life the veil on the things we are too frightened (for whatever reason) to view.
A week has past now since I experienced this dream and I have come to an understanding of what the dream represents to me. I have newly accepted another piece of my Self that I seemed to forget about. It reminds me that all of us have great power , maybe it is unknown to us, maybe we have forgotten about it, or maybe it remains a mystery to our waking minds, but it is there within us… deep within us… and we can tap into it any time to be used for good. I see my vampire dream as a reminder of my telepathy and psychic abilities I do not use often in waking. I have relied on my dreams to be the portal for these abilities and seem to turn them off for myself on many occasions in my waking. This dream has awoken me as a reminder to a piece of my soul from the past, to use in the present, in order to create my future.
I always tell others “Don’t be afraid of dreams that have meanings in waking that hold a negative or fearful notion. There are a spectrum of positive meanings behind dreams that reveal the beautiful truth to your mysterious images and thought patterns.”
Next time you have a dream in which waking life relates it to the darkness, shift your perspective and view your dream from a positive angle that fits with who YOUR soul truly is. The physical plane is not the only existence in which we live amongst. …..And sometimes an image or feeling is not simply defined by a blanket translation.
As my Reiki teacher said to me, “I believe that everything exists, even those ‘fantasy’ characters, so authors never made up things but merely tapped into the energy out there.”
