In my dream I am in a stone church, gray and very large. Inside, I am in the choir loft with someone, I think it is another woman. There are people all around and it is apparently the end of a service. I walk with purpose to the back of the choir loft, and walk with the woman down a sort of hallway that becomes more and more cave-like. The walls begin to look more and more like stone. We move forward with purpose as if I know what I'm doing and where I'm going. I come to steep stairs in the shape of an inverted U.
We are going down the steep stairs and they keep getting steeper and steeper. Now we are at the bottom and I see some others reach the bottom at the same time - I have to stop and help them. An old woman whose hair is dyed so that I do not know how old she is at first is reaching for the stone rail for balance, but it suddenly is shaped like a stone alter and shifts - it is not sturdy enough for her to balance against. I jump to hold it steady, and she gets to the bottom of the stairs.
We come into another place with doorways and a lot of grassy areas, divided up with sidewalks, laid out in a fashion similar to a college campus. I go into a doorway, there is no actual door, just an arched way. Inside there is a jewelry store, very eastern-looking, like something out of Thailand. The young man behind the counter looks Indian, then he changes after a bit and looks more like an American with brown hair and brown eyes. He engages us (I am still with another woman) in conversation.
There is a statue at the back of his store, and I go over to have a closer look. It is a seated figure of a deity, either Shiva or Buddah, but it looks like a female manifestation of the deity, and the face and headdress looks more like Shiva, but the front of the figure is Buddah, slender, golden, but with arms holding something that looks like a weapon, like Shiva. The figure is a blended diety.
The entity is definitely female. Sort of like this statue of kuan-yin.
As I continue to study the statue, I notice a beautiful golden necklace on the statue, made of chain-mail (golden chain-mail). The statue seems to shift slightly, and I turn away from it. When I look again, the statue is the same, the necklace is the same, but the statue is now made of styrafoam. I asked the man where it came from and he tells me he got it in India.
He talks to us and decides to show us something. He asks me if I'd like to go somewhere with him and I agree. We start outside and he is talking constantly. The stairs begin to get steeper and steeper.
The stairs change from stone stairs to smooth stone, then finally to a slick (not wet) white tube made of what looks like plastic. The tube is so slick that we begin falling, feet-first, but I am still having a conversation with the young man and the woman with me. There ia a man who joins us for a bit, he is in the conversation for a few sentences before disappearing into the tube below our feet. The young man asks me if I will go to a shop with him and play a virtual game called sex. I ask about the game, what is it? An older man is in the tube suddenly, and we are now back on stairs.
The older man looks at me and asks if I know what the game is, and I say no. I ask the young man to explain the game to me. I say "If by "sex game" you mean infidelity, then definitely not. But if you mean killing large predators, then of course, okay, I'm in." The young man laughs and we continue to fall towards some sort of virtual reality game called sex he wants to take me to.
AWAKENING: My man is standing over me with a mug of coffee. I ask him if that is coffee, and he says yes. I ask him if it is mine, and he says it is too early. Go back to sleep. This is about 6:30 - 7:00 am.
OTHER: Before going to sleep, I had 1 cup of red wine, 1 pill (allergy medicine - benedryl) and 2 droppers-full of Kava Kava. This was approximately 30 minutes before I went to sleep, around 11:00 at night.
COLORS: The colors in this dream are there, but muted somehow, too dull to really notice them, but the dream is not black and white, and it is not sepia. The reds are darker than normal, the blues are very faint, and I can see yellow clearly, along with golds and browns.
