Supernatural Powers in Dreams April 8, 2016
Come into a night sea journey …
Have you ever had a ghostly cold dream? A nightmare with the chill of death in it? Carl Jung (20th century Swiss psychiatrist) says nightmares tell us something important. Jung believed there is a psychic reality to dreams. He even went so far as to say they carry a supra-luminous level of frequency that exceeds the speed of light.
As dreamers pass into this passage of sleep, they might see a heavy dark spot spreading out. This is akin to the fear of losing consciousness. And this fear is so great that—rather than become totally unconscious—we dream. We create images and action, little stories to maintain our identity. These are the thoughts of Dr. Laz Merlyn, psychiatrist, in Night Sea Journey, A Tale of the Supernatural. A supernatural mystery about nightmares, dreaming, and a supra-luminous frequency.
Laz Merlyn is a Jungian therapist. He sees a dream as a dance of alternate energy, an event that is actually a psychic energy taking action in our lives.
Let’s say you dream of a bird. A phoenix, lush with grand feathers and with wings pushing out. Dr. Merlyn will tell you that a phoenix, according to Jungian theory, symbolizes the human spleen that protects against infection and cleanses the blood. Maybe in normal life, some bacteria or person or event is poised to attack you in some way. Merlyn will tell you that when you wake up, this phoenix will linger over your life. This psychic energy of the phoenix is present, day upon day, redirecting you, watching over. Are you becoming more guarded as the days pass? Suspicious? Cautious? For some people, this frequency goes unnoticed. For others who are alert to it, they are deeply affected.
Kip Livingston is a woman who is alert to this psychic dream energy. She is a semi-famous artist living alone in Abasteron House on Horn Island in the Atlantic. And she dreams not of a phoenix, but of a raging firehawk.
A shadowy winged creature with a flaming chest, shedding ash, who captures her in her sleep and drags her into the bottom of an icy sea. This nightmare comes again and again and each night, Kip goes deeper beneath the choking waves as the firehawk grows more fierce. What does Dr. Laz Merlyn say about that?
Dr. Merlyn might say to Kip, “The flow of psychic dream energy has the power to move inward and outward. In this dream of the firehawk, there is a negative psychic frequency. Likely caused by intense night terrors. What are you afraid of, Kip?”
Fear; Dr. Merlyn thinks he’s right for the most part. Until he discovers that Kip’s firehawk is not confined to her dreams. Until he discovers that this firehawk breaks through into Kip’s reality and into our physical world. What power is this? One that can take her on a journey into the night sea.
Night Sea Journey, A Tale of the Supernatural is an Eric Hoffer Book Award Winner. The Hoffer Awards honor excellence in writing and prose in chiefly academic, small, and micro presses, and self-published authors. The winners are nominated by a panel of independent judges. Eric Hoffer Review: “This romantic fantasy is propelled by gorgeous language and imagery…angels and demons…The grime of inner city Chicago, the tranquility of the Rhode Island coastline, and the depths of a phantasmagoric ocean are the stages for this conflict.”
U.S. Review of Books says of Night Sea Journey: “Stunning and absorbing plot on par with–if not better than–a Dan Brown novel.”
