ORIGINAL TEXT - "Blimp racers" dream, 1971. From journal,
Between the horizontal lines below is the exact and complete text of a
dream and my commentary on it, as recorded on October 1, 1971 in New Port
Richey, Florida. A few minor corrections have been made. This is linked to
from Paranormal Journal.
DREAM: "[Much forgotten] At times I was a girl in
this dream - one that had suffered some reversal - shy and unnecessarily
withdrawn from the social life about me. There was a scene where in a confused
state I was being struck by a water sprinkler spray. I couldn't see well -
my eyes were covered - and I knew I was wandering closer to the spray. Later
I lay down on a bed in a room with light coming through shades and had thoughts
of great clarity - peaceful - above the previous confusion. "There is no
reason for me to withdraw into myself" I thought, and related this to the
idea that I was actually not so bad looking a girl. Then someone entered
my room - I didn't see him but it was a male voice telling me the "blimp
racing team" at UCLA had dreamed of me and they liked me (as a girl) and
would be contacting me. I was skeptical but he said it was true - he had
read it in the Daily Bruin (the
UCLA student paper) - all the team had dreamed of me. Some confusion re-entered
my mind now as I was somewhat aware of not being a girl and not really wanting
male attention. END"
COMMENTARY: Precognitive aspects!
I awoke from previous dream and thought about
it. I definitely felt it was a precognitive dream but the absurdity of a
"blimp racing team," as well as the fact that I could not think of anyone
at UCLA likely to contact me, both made me decide it was just some sort of
sex dream (blimp = phallus). I decided not to write it down. While still
thinking of it, at about 9 AM, the doorbell rang and I received a special
delivery letter from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in
Boulder, Colorado. I was not at all expecting to hear from them because they
had returned my employment forms several weeks earlier. Note that they are
located in Boulder - where I also lived and went to college (as well as UCLA).
My association with the agency name has always been on the "atmospheric"
and I think of people that release weather balloons, etc. Consider also that
at present this is not the kind of job I would really like. Though this dream
was not recorded until after receiving the letter there is no chance I imagined
it - having been consciously considering it for several minutes prior to
the door bell ringing. The letter was sent "air mail special delivery." Note
that my unseen friend who works on "Futurama" said there would be many walks
in the tunnels.
[Letters were dated Sept. 3 and Sept. 29 from R. G. Davis in Personnel]
