Arvin: Dream Adept.
Merlin: Dream Mentor
Together we were engaged in a seven-year relationship which as he promised did indeed continue well after his passing through the dreamtime. Death is not the end – we are but caterpillars without the faintest idea – all too often – that we are in any way connected to the beautiful butterflies drifting by on a breeze. Dreams afford us – among other things – an opportunity to meet with the butterfly aspects of those whom we loved and ever will love, after they have transitioned beyond the veil of being focussed in the physical plane to being yet again astral plane habitués.
These dreams though not exclusively about Merlin and me – though many are – serve to inspire you to be ever mindful that dreams are a way of becoming more awakened when alive, more attuned to the butterfly aspect of what we have been – before returning to life – and what again we will be.
We are marvellous, magical beings and by being awakened in the dream realms we can remain actively attuned and focussed on our spiritual maturation.
Merlin I dreamt of 4 years prior to meeting; of course, at the time I had assumed that I had just had a really cool dream encounter with John Lennon!

Merlin was a director Off-Broadway and directed two episodes of Jim Henson’s† Fraggle Rock in its inaugural season; he also worked in theatre and radio in Canada – in particular at the CBC Radio Drama and the Stratford Shakespeare Festival.

Merlin loved magic, cats, parrots, suspenders, bandannas, male R&B singers, the soundtrack to The Mission and at least thrice weekly he listened to Glenn Gould’s† interpretation of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations.

As for me, I studied classical dance and danced briefly in New York City then leapt into my magical relationship with Merlin who interrupted a dream to say so long as he died while I slept.

This page exists as a way of sharing my skills as a lucid dreamer to inspire you, dear dreamer.
(Notice how the orbs harmoniously arrange themselves in pyramidal formations next to the pyramid in the indigo room…. marvellous conductor/facilitator.)
Sweet dreams and, as we are ever transitioning towards being butterflies, don’t forget to push off and start flying when lucidly awakened in the dreamtime!
Dreams are the poetry of the soul!
