THE AMERICAN FLAG OF DEATH

Tuesday, 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.

“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.

DREAMS AND THE WISDOM WITHIN The Book

Sunday, July 27th, 2014

Part memoir, part spiritual guide, and part metaphysical manual, DREAMS AND THE WISDOM WITHIN weaves a compelling narrative of the power of dreams to guide our health. Journalist Joyce Lynn shows us of the power of dreams as a spiritual practice outside the confines of religion or psychotherapy. She revives dreams as a mandatory modality in our daily lives.

DREAMS AND THE WISDOM WITHIN draws on scientific research, metaphysical information, and real life stories to illuminate the transformative power of our nightly messages. Drawing on her experience as a reporter and first-hand knowledge with dreams, Lynn offers a three-step healing blueprint and envisions a future of medical care with dream guidance at its center.

The stories of women who have accessed dreams to prevent, diagnosis, and treat illness are told in DREAMS AND THE WISDOM WITHIN. In one remarkable story, the deceased mother of a Kentucky woman appeared in dreams and warned her, “There is cancer growing in your right breast.” The admonitions persisted despite three “clean” mammograms. Finally, an ultrasound verified the dire dream warnings. After surgery and chemotherapy, Ellie was cancer free. Sixteen years later, Ellie, now 79, extolled her life-saving medical care. “It is important people listen to their dreams,” she said.

The extensive reach of dreams is told through Lynn’s personal experiences. Dreams helped the author salvage her self-esteem and grasp her true worth as a woman; recover from a potentially serious illness, halting a stampede toward cervical cancer; find a healthy eating plan; discover life’s intended career path; handle the business and content of reporting; end a dysfunctional romantic relationship; reconnect with her religious roots and discover an inner spiritual center.

DREAMS AND THE WISDOM WITHIN empowers women and minorities — the major sufferers of the major illnesses of our time and those disenfranchised by traditional medicine.

Lynn, a former political reporter, now writes about women’s health and spirituality. She is the author of PLUM DREAMS DIARY: On Mothers, Men, Modern Medicine, and the Divine, a collection of dreams exploring the contemporary female psyche. She has reported on how our thoughts affect our health, the benefits of Mediterranean and vegetarian diets, and public health care policy. She has profiled peace activist Cindy Sheehan and artist-activist Claudia Chapline and others whose dreams have influenced their art, activism, health, and business ventures. Her articles have appeared in dozens of publications including Ms. Magazine, the Pacific Sun, Online Journal, and Louisville Magazine.

DREAMS AND THE WISDOM WITHIN will be published in Spring 2018 by Plum Dreams Media. Pre-orders receive a 20% discount of the list price ($25). To pre-order and reserve your autographed copies at the pre-publication price $20 (published price $26), email info@PlumDreamsMedia.com
