Ever since I was little, I've dreamed of trying to get back to this valley, some of it I know is NOT pl dreams but the goal is the same, sometimes I'm with my dad and sister in this life, sometimes alone, never with anyone else but dad and sis...I know it's a valley off in the National Park that lies somewhat near where we grew up in Alaska...in real life I've never had an interest in anything in that wilderness off in the park, but in my dreams I know the direction to go...sometimes we try to cross a waterfall by going up the cliff and across it, we never make it and dad falls to the bottom...sometimes I'm on a really high road up in the air and then the road ends and I think if I can just jump far enough I will make it "across" to this valley, but I don't and I just fall clear out of the sky towards the ground....these dreams I've dismissed as perhaps symbolic of something because it doesn't have any signs of PL dreams except I'm still trying to get to that valley But there's been other dreams...a few in particular, where I'm already in that valley and I'm an old, tough MALE goldminer and I walk into this restaurant(?) or store(?) made out of logs and it's winter and I see a lot of oldfashioned gear and barrels of food and people are also sitting at a counter and I see posters on the walls but I never looked closely at them...I'm with dad and Hannah but they don't look like themselves, they also are tough old miners...we've made a long trek and in other dreams I've seen us three walking through huge drifts of snow trying to follow a road or path..whatever we had been traveling on broke or quit and we were out on foot, it was cold and windy but I don't remember the cold getting to me very much, I must have been dressed warmly...at that time it didn't register too much that I was in this long-sought valley, I felt like I'd been there a long time and it was no big deal that I was here But the other night I had a dream about being a much younger goldminer...it was spring, I think, and the valley was fairly small, I could see it better without the snow and darkness...it was light brown mountains, not too tall, and the valley itself was a dried up riverbed, what once had been a big river, because the valley was bigger than just a little river...a small trickle of water still ran through the middle of the valley and nothing had bloomed yet on the hillsides...I was returning from some trip to scout for gold(?) and I had been gone awhile...my focus wasn't on the valley itself although I was very happy to be back, my focus was on the woman standing near the river, she had long brown hair pulled into a bun at the back of her neck and a blue skirt and white top, or maybe it was all a dress, that was my wife and I knew it was Don ( my husband in this life) and I was SO thrilled to see her again, I ran to her and threw my arms around her and knocked her over :laugh: we were kissing and I thrust my hips against her but that was all (sorry I know that sounds crude) Then I realized what that ringing sound was in my ears, I stood up and dragged her up with me and said "listen"..the ringing had started when I first walked into the valley and now it was stronger and through my whole head, a metallic shrill ringing and it was gold calling me...I felt euphoric, all these times I'd spend searching for it and it was right here in the valley where we made our home, I felt like my body was buzzing and I faintly wondered if I'd gone mad...my wife (I'm pretty sure her name started with a B) looked at me like I was indeed crazy and I knew she couldnt hear it...I was ecstatic and euphoric, like riding a high of some sort...I scanned the hills already plotting where to go look to find the gold that was literally calling me...and that's the end of that dream... I think my first dreams were of later in that life, being the old miner and the last dream must have been first cuz I was younger...and I think the very first dreams when I was younger was maybe some form of spirit yearning to go back there? or an attempt? and maybe dad and sis were there because they were with me in that past life....
