THE AMERICAN FLAG OF DEATH

April 17th, 2018

painting c by Claudia Chapline

In a dream, I’m standing on a ladder painting a large (American) flag. When I awoke the next day, I sketched the flag in my journal and then I made a small painting from the drawing/dream. The stars resemble exploding bombs, the stripes, missiles. A skeleton’s head emerges from the war machinery.

For me, the flag painting symbolizes the discrepancy between American ideals and manifest American policy.

Be a Trim-Tabber
for Truth, Justice, and Peace

September 9th, 2014

Trim-tab is a nautical term–it refers to the action giving the best result for the least effort. Become a trim-tabber for your cause or issue or simply for democracy. Listening to your dreams is a certain way to become a trim-tabber –for you to bear fact-based information, instigate creative action, or develop transformational policy.

Listening to your dreams can jump-start your political activism? Listening to your dreams offers new ways to inform, rally, or remedy your push for planetary change. A shift in consciousness brings a shift in your effectiveness. That is true trim-tabiness. I know from personal experience and the many trim-tabbers I have interviewed awareness of reality gleaned from dreams leads to right action.

Whether you are a political activist, journalist, politician, or concerned citizen, dreams can help you find or create your path to transform democracy and bring justice and peace to our troubled world.

Here at PLUMDREAMS.COM, you can read the stories of those who have called on the wisdom within to enhance efficacy as a trim-tabber for positive social change. Read how dreams guided my pioneering reporting on the role of oil in 9/11 and revealed other truths unavailable in the mainstream media. Profiles of Nazi student resistance fight Sophie School, 9/11 widow Ellen Mariani, and peace activist Cindy Sheehan, among many others, show the power of dreaming.

“A journalist must travel through a story by examining all the connections and interconnections between events and characters in order to arrive at ‘Truth.’ Joyce Lynn, well aware of journalism’s traditions and heritage, takes this approach one level deeper. She states that for a journalist, a writer, or indeed, any individual to know truth, one must examine all the events and characters in the ‘seen’ world against the backdrop of one’s ‘unseen,’ i.e. dream world. And, only when all these connections are made can one realize ‘Truth.’ – Carol S., Journalist, Northern California

“Etching of me overcoming my cognitive dissonance with regard to Bush regime and false flag terrorism and 9/11″

~~~~~~~~~

Dreams of 9/11 and other political events wake us to reality and response.

DREAM VERITAS! From Tragedy to Transformation, a multimedia presentation, profiles powerful women activists and artists with little known stories of evoking dreams to guide, reveal, and heal personal trauma and create social change:

This army of women dreamers shows us the profound power of remembering, understanding, and listening to our dreams. They include abolitionist Harriet Tubman, German student resistance fighter Sophie Scholl, 9/11 widow Ellen Mariani, graphic designer Sandra Taylor, 9/11 justice advocate Lynn Pentz, anti-war painter and poet Claudia Chapline, peace activist Cindy Sheehan, Iraqi American artist Vian Sora, and landscape and collage artist Marsha Connell. Other dreamers reveal political truths, upending government and corporate controlled media propaganda.

The stories show once inner wisdom is tapped denial is impossible and directed action manifests.

Like surrealism, the political-art movement spawned to oppose totalitarian in the aftermath of the horrors of World War 1, DREAM VERITAS! relies on the power of dreaming. Moving beyond the confines of dreams in religious doctrines, psychotherapy, or New Age paradigms, DREAM VERITAS revives sacred dreaming, the studded amulet of ancient cultures, making it fashionable once again. Dreams, the voice of the Inner Self, are natural and necessary instruments on our healing journey. Dreaming holds the possibility of world-wide transformation.
