Dreaming of Amma

Last night I had the most intense dreams of Amma. In fact, they were so real

that I had to collect myself for a moment after waking up. In one dream, I

was in a large darshan hall and for some reason I was taking polaroid photos

of Mother hugging everyone. When each photo came out developed, she was

looking directly at the camera, although while taking them she was not. I

thought it was strange and when I went up for darshan, my darshan lasted for

what seemed like a half hour. I am immediately woke up from this dream and

fell back asleep, where I continued to have another dream.

 

In the second dream, I was asking Mother all sorts of questions like why has

such and such happened to me? What is my purpose in life? etc. etc. She told

me that I had massive amounts of karma, but that she would help me with it.

Just then, she put her mouth to mine as if she were going to kiss me and

just held her mouth open inhaling for what must have been 10 minutes. Never

exhaling until she moved away. I woke up with a jolt from this dream and sat

straight up in bed. I was stunned, because the dream seemed so real. I fell

back asleep and had yet another dream...

 

I was back in the darshan hall and my mother called me on my cellphone (in

real life, my mother passed away over a year ago). I told her to please

drive down to such and such a place to recieve Mother's darshan. She had no

idea who Mother was, but came anyway because I convinced her. I stood behind

my mother in the darshan line wondering if Amma would know that the next

person she would hug was my mother. "There is no way she will know" I

thought. When my mother reached Amma's arms, she turned into a little girl

of maybe seven years old. Amma handed her a paintbrush and some ink and told

her she could write on her sari. There was my mother, as a little girl and

Amma was playing and laughing and being silly with her. As I watched this, I

wondered still if Amma knew that the little girl was my mother. Amma then

pointed at me, laughing and said "Your daughter" "Your daughter." to my

mother. I again woke up immediately....so immediately that I heard Amma's

voice in my bedroom saying "Your daughter." when I woke up.

 

What could be the significance of this. Are such lucid, realistic dreams of

Amma so common? It has never happened to me before.I read somewhere once

that one cannot dream of Mother without her willing it. Has she ever

addressed this specifically?

 

In Amma,

 

Michelle

Hi Michelle, Wow ! Having three dreams of Amma in a single night is something. I

do get dreams of Amma but once in a while the latest one being where Amma

instructed me to chant 108 names and "Om Namah Shivaya" 108 times(BTW I don't

chant any mantras). But I believe that dreams are manifestations of your

repressed desires - so you can analyze your dreams using this basic principle.

However I don't personally place too much emphasis on them even if they are

Amma's dreams. But I know some people that do and call them visions.

Hi Michelle,

 

Wow, what wonderful dreams! It is also my understanding that you cannot dream

of

Amma without her willing it. I would suggest that you write them down and

cherish them. The best dreams of all are Amma dreams!

 

Best regards,

Jyotsna

Michelle,

 

I think you've received a very precious gift from

Amma. What beautiful dreams...pretty amazing.

 

I've been told that it is impossible for us to will or

imagine a dream of a spiritual master on our

own...that when we have such dreams, they are

visitations. This resonates as true for me...my own

occasional dreams of Amma have always felt that way.

 

Here are Amma's words...from the new book "Messages

from Amma in the Language of the Heart" (edited by

Janine Canan). This passage is found on page 18.

 

Children,

Mother is always with you.

Whenever you think of Her,

She sees your faces.

At night She visits her children

all over the world.

Her children are her swans;

She watches and gathers the strays.

You are all baby birds

tucked under Mother's wing.

 

Don't you love that? I did...and I had to smile when I

read that fourth line.

 

It's probably best that this child can't just dream of

Amma at will. If I could, I'm sure I'd take way too

many naps! :)

 

Hope this helps a bit --

Amala

Dear Michelle,

 

Somewhere I read an answer Amma gave regarding dreams about Her. If I find it,

I'll pass it onto you. Amma basically said there could be different reasons for

dreaming about Her, and one was that She could be thinking about a devotee.

Since you were awakened by these dreams that seemed so real, plus you had three

in a row, this ignorant little child would venture to speculate they are

significant and divinely inspired.

 

With love,

Sweta

Namah Shivaya, Sweta,

A few nights ago, I had an Amma dream. You were in it, too!!! Amma was in

a large room of people. Suddenly, it was the end of the program. All the

people in the front 3/4 of the room left the room. The space in front of

Amma was absolutely clear and free. You and I were standing outside the

exit door peering in at Amma. We looked at each other and wondered if it

would be okay to go up to Amma even though a lot of people had left. You

asked Amma if it was okay if we could go up to her. You motioned to me that

Amma had said it was okay to come forward. We were at Amma's feet, you to

the left of me. I was kneeling but looked up at Amma with my head in a

horizontal position, kind of feeling intoxicated by Amma. You were asking

Amma one question after another. Amma was responding to each question in

perfect English. It felt so good, I have forgotten what questions you

asked. I delighted that Amma had answered to you in English.

 

Hope to see you on Saturday,

Fe

Dreams like that are not so common, yet many of us

have probably had similar experiences now and again.

They are a real blessing. I'm sure if you asked Amma

about them she would tell you that she had visited

you. I think you can feel confident that Amma did

appear to you.

 

Peace,

 

Dave

Namah Shivaya dear Michelle.

 

Truly, reading about your dreams was like watching

Amma give darshan.

 

Pranams,

Aum Amriteshvaryai Namah

Hi Michelle,

 

Namah Shivaya.

 

These dreams do sound like visions to me.

 

To my mind, dreams are of two types (my categorization, not

necessarily a standard textbook definition of dreams)

1. Hazy

2. Lucid

 

The hazy dreams come from our subconscious. We may not even remember

them when we wake up. These are the nonsense thoughts that get

purged out of us because we were not efficient (read 'AWARE') enough

to dispose of them in the waking time. Some Amma dreams may come in

this category (the possibility can't be ruled out). You may ask "Why

would anyone have a dream in which he would want to 'dispose off

Amma'?". My answer would be "I don't know" or "just for the fun of

it".

 

 

The lucid dreams are of a different category. The visualization is

intense, and there is tremendous attention to detail. We usually

remember such dreams at waking (sometimes we may not), but what is

remarkable about these dreams is that THEY STIR OUR CONSCIOUSNESS

VISIBLY AND CHANGE US IRREVOCABLY, even if the change is to a minor

extent only. Most Amma dreams, in my experience, come in this

category.

 

 

I tend to think that there is a third category of dreams, which lies

between the hazy and the lucid in strength. The nature of the dreams

is hazy, but in strength, it is more lucid. I would attribute this

to be the manifestation of some STRONGLY REPRESSED THOUGHTS in our

consciousness (like the sex urge which is fairly universal example

of REPRESSED THOUGHT that people can relate to, or some particular

trauma in the past which is an example of a more personal REPRESSED

THOUGHT). Such dreams can be lucid in intensity too, so please don't

mistake these to be visions.

 

In your case, I get the feeling it was lucid.

 

Jai Ma!

Namah Shivaya Michelle

 

I have also had darshan dreams of Amma and have felt that they are

truly real. They hold a dear space in my heart.

 

You are blessed to have such darshan dreams!

 

With love,

Erica

Erica,

 

You told your husband is from India. May I know from which part of India he

belongs. What is his name ?

 

Namah Shivaya,

Ajith

Thank you all for your replies regarding my experience the other night and

for sharing your own. What is even stranger about that day, is that I felt

so close to Amma all day. In fact, I had driven halfway to work and drove

all the way back home just to get the CD of Amma singing because I just "had

to" hear her voice. These lucid dreams happened once before...and now I

realize that each day following the dream I felt so close to her and so

emotionally filled with love at the thought of her....more than usual. Also,

there was this persistent sense of longing to go back to the dream....to

have that feeling again because it was so real. It was truly a beautiful

day!!

 

In Amma,

 

Michelle

Dearest Michelle,

 

I have tried to do the best I could with your dream interpretation. You are the

best one to interpret your dreams. I have tried interpreting other dreams on the

group but in case you haven't read some of this information I will reiterate

here. Some dream symbols are universal dream symbols, which means it pretty much

means the same for everyone, such as driving, means physical life, water

emotions, etc. Other dream symbols are more personal and YOU have to see what

they symbolize to YOU. Write down all the parts of your dream, then what is the

first thing that you think of when thinking of this or that object, person,

place, etc. I have put a list together so that if the dream interpretation

doesn't click you can read over the "definitions" and see if any of it clicks

for you. Or make up your own. Also Colors, feelings, etc are VERY important to

dreaming. Do you remember what your mother painted on Amma's sari? How were you

feeling in the first, second, third dream? Go with your

feelings.

 

 

 

 

Church (Darshan Hall) - Need attunement within your inner temple. A need to

awaken awareness in acknowledgment of higher power.

 

 

Photo - How you are seeing things at this time; a picture to awaken a past

memory because the lesson you are going through now is one you did not learn in

the past.

 

Hug - Comfort, Loving and nurturing oneself. Healing

 

Camara - Perception of experiences; record of life to draw upon for learning.

 

First Dream

 

You walk in to the darshan hall, a time for attunement and awareness of your

higher self or a higher power, my guess here is that in your lucid dreaming, it

is saying PAY ATTENTION a spiritual lesson is coming up, your "tuning in to your

higher self". You are then taking photos of Mother hugging everyone. Are you

going through a lesson you have went through before but did not learn the first

time? Perhaps in another life even. Or are you stuck on this lesson. (A moment

frozen in time?) so to speak. Mother is hugging everyone, comforting and healing

them. When your photo developed, or your "lesson" developed, Amma looks directly

at your camera, your record of life to draw upon for learning, (draw upon our

Amma to learn this lesson) Learn to see the positive lesson for growth in every

live picture or experience, and your "photo album"(lesson or experience in life)

will be filled with the essence of joy and love. Although she was not looking at

your "lesson" in the past (or perhaps

you were not looking to her), she is looking at it with you now to let you know

she is with you. You then proceed to get your darshan, your healing and comfort.

 

Second Dream

 

Mouth - Verbalization, communication; express yourself. Source for nurturing and

sustenance.

 

In this dream you were asking Amma questions of importance to you. She is

telling you that you have lots of karma to work through but that she is going to

help you through them. She is communication with you, giving you a shot of

energy, quick pick me up, or healing. This dream seems pretty self explanatory

and defiantly more personal to you.

 

Third Dream

 

Cellphone - Communication, If you are calling someone you are asking for help.

If someone is calling you it usually represents your guidance trying to get your

attention with an important message. Look at any telephone dreams closely.

 

Drive - To drive and be in the driver's seat is to be in control of your life.

Note how you are driving, and your position in the vehicle. If you are not in

the driver's seat, ask who or what is running your life.

 

Girl - Female child part of self; usually the younger the child the more

sensitive. May mean to relax and play more, get in touch with your child.

Girlish attitudes. Creative, Intuitive, Receptive, Emotional, nurturing side of

self. Feelings. The unconscious. That which is open, can be penetrated or

entered.

 

 

7 - Mystical number marking beginnings and endings, cyclic periods for growth

and development: 7 Chakras, 7 Days to create the world, 7 Heavens, Every 7 years

is death and rebirth cycle.

 

Paint brush - Tool for creative self- expression

 

Ink - Creative expression; Recording or documenting something

 

Daughter - Feminine child part within self. Also qualities you project on your

own daughter; nature of relationship with daughter or person in that role.

 

Laughter - Healing, uplifting energy. Do not take yourself seriously; relax and

enjoy self and others.

 

Mother - Usually represents older, wiser more experienced part of female self.

Feelings you project on mother figure. If you have negative feelings, often

reflects hatred or resentment of own motherly self which gives away power to

others lack self love, takes care of others needs and neglects own.

 

You are in the darshan hall, again I think your higher-self is "waking you up"

and making you "aware" of another spiritual dream coming on. Your Mother calls

you, (your mother passed away a year ago) perhaps she is trying to communicate

with you and help you along in life. She is your guidance (your wiser self), and

she has an important message for you. You told HER to drive, are you in control

of your physical life here? If not who or what is? Are you feeling out of

control? In what way? Your wiser self reaches mothers arms and turns into a

little girl of seven (your younger sensitive self), open up and enter into the

lesson, relax, get in touch with your child (Amma is always saying this to all

of us) Perhaps this could be the beginning to an end of a hard lesson in life, a

death and rebirth. Amma hands the little girl a paint brush and some ink so that

you can creatively express yourself , you have unconscious potential and

abilities in life, use them. Amma is playing and laughing

with the little girl, relax in to life, don't be so serious. She is then

calling out "your daughter, your daughter". Do you have a daughter in waking

life? Perhaps the lessons that you are to learn are with her? Or some of YOUR

daughterly qualities need to be looked at?

 

This last dream was a little more difficult because I do not know you or

anything about you. But Amma calling out "your daughter, your daughter" this

seems like the key to me here. If you can figure out that, then you can figure

out the significance of the dream.

 

I also believe that your sequence of dreams is no coincidence, put together the

first one tells me that you have a lesson that you are stuck on that needs to be

learn, the second tells me that it may have earned you a lot of karma, but Amma

is there to bring you through it, and is doing some kind of "healing", the final

dream is the key I think, it holds the lesson that you are suppose to learn,

that you seem to be stuck on. It is up to you to figure that out.

 

I hope this helps in any way possible, I realize that some or all of it might be

incorrect, you need to go on your instincts and feelings and you really need to

find out this lesson so you can move on, and hopefully accumulate less karma.

:-) Good luck to you dearest sister.

 

Clinging to Amma,

Robin

 

PS. If you can not figure out the lesson you are suppose to be learning, when

you get ready for bed, have a pen and paper there with you, write down your

question, what ever that might be, "Amma what is this lesson I need to learn",

repeat this over again and again. Then go to sleep thinking about the question.

When you wake up write any dreams down, EVERY DETAIL. Do this every night until

your answer becomes clearer.

Dear Shaswati,

 

You were asking Amma one question after another. Amma was responding to each

question in perfect English.

 

This sounds so true to life ... me asking too many questions, and Amma

patiently addressing all of them.

 

I enjoyed our conversation at the MA Ctr. I asked my sister about flying to CA

to stay w/my son during the retreat, but she probably won't. I don't know where

my son will stay during the retreat, but I feel that I just have to see Amma

then.

Namah Shivaya Sweta,

Since I have the same problem with you, knowing what to do with our

teenagers if we want to go to the retreat, maybe we can do some

brainstorming. Since I'll be doing some seva with teenagers during the

retreat, maybe you could ask your son what kind of activities he would like

to do if he were to come on the retreat. Maybe there are a bunch of us who

have children who aren't as interested in Amma as we are. Do you know of

any other people who might be liking to do this kind of seva, or know people

that might have some ideas on what kind of activities teenagers like to do?

I hope your sister will be able to come help you out.

Namah Shivaya,

 

I'll ask my son about what he would want to do at the retreat. He loves to

roller skate (there is a highly rated rink in San Ramon), play X-Box games &

Runescape (on-line roll playing game.) Maybe if we found others with

uninterested young teens, we parents could help eachother out with supervision

off-site during the retreat & take them to a movie, or something? I can quickly

think of at least one devotee who has a 13-year-old son who isn't interested in

Amma. The biggest difficulty would be getting my son to leave home in the first

place.
