This dream has been viewed 3892 times.I am vaguely outdoors in a dreamy surreal place with lots of craggy dark brown outcrops of rock I’m sat at the edge of a half natural and half manmade large pool of sea water. From where I am sat the pool is square but as it recedes out to where I imagine the sea is it becomes more natural and irregular.
A few people vaguely mill about in the background exploring the area around the pool. I am joined by an older female guide who stands above me to my right. I look down into the pool which is both dark but also clear and see what looks like a huge shoal or swarm of fireflies twisting and lilting as one through the water, it’s a beautiful sight and quite extraordinary.
The female guide tells me that if I get into the pool and can manage to stay under the water for 30 minutes I’ll see a real spectacle. I think to myself 30 minutes isn’t that long so as I’m a really good swimmer I decide to lower myself down into the water (when I woke up it obviously clicked that even though I really enjoy swimming there is no way that I’d ever be able to stay under water for half an hour!! lol!).
The mixture of manmade and artificial pool is very striking but the water really is salty and from the sea, I gently submerge myself and as I become accustomed to the light I see the large shoal of strange fishes sweep past me in a glimmering cloud. As I pay closer attention to this amazing sight I actually realize that the fishes look like penguins and as they get closer still I can see that the multitude of creatures look just like beautifully colored rainforest birds.
Suddenly I see hundreds of tiny ripples fan out above me as some food is thrown and scattered out onto the surface of the water for the bird fishes to eat. There is a flurry of activity and the shimmering shoal sweeps over to the food in one fluid movement, it’s a sort of feeding frenzy but not frightening and quite amazing to watch, I realize that this was the spectacle the guide spoke of.
I gently swim and glide about in the water looking about, way own on the seabed I am aware that there are lots of brightly colored little frogs also very much like the kind one might find in a rainforest all living happily down on the pool floor.
