FROM JOYCE:
A Democratic Presidential Challenger
Who Can Win in 2012

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

A picture of an angel with blond hair clad in red and green, facing left.

This image appeared on my dream screen early on Monday, December 20 (2010). I had fallen asleep listening to a replay of Ring of Fire on Green960, San Francisco’s progressive radio station.

The then co-host David Bender was interviewing Alan Grayson, voted Progressive of the Year. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Mike Papantonio are the original and ongoing hosts.

The program reminded me of the reoccurring conversation with friends, the most recent that evening, about “primarying” Barack Obama. The depth of the crisis confronting our country as President Obama aidedand abetted a Republican/corporate agenda darkened the cloud hovering over the season of light.

Obama, expanding the blood bath in the Middle East, entrenching insurance, financial, military, and other transnational business interests at the expense of our country and our humanity, depressed the joy of celebrating with family and friends.

To stop the political ruminations, I asked my dreams for guidance. Since dreams — mine and others– had accurately predicted the 2000 Presidential election and recount, explained 9/11, and graphically described the rising tide of fascism in the U.S., I turn to this Source of knowledge to substantiate political reporting and commentary.

INSIGHT, PLEASE

I asked:

Should there be a 2012 primary challenge to Barack Obama and, if so, who?

That’s when the dream messenger aka angel appeared, answering both queries
with a single image.

Associations:

A Christmas ornament with blond hair eliminates the Jewish stars most often discussed — Grayson, Sanders, Feingold, Schakowsky.

Blond hair with a wave over one eye: I think Marilyn Monroe, Madonna/a young Bette Miller. Yes, a young Marilyn Monroe.

Now the mysterious is obvious.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.!!!

Once the brilliance of the dream guidance registered, I realized I was breathing again, perhaps, for the first time in a decade! Notice how the possibility changes your entire being.

DREAMS: A Sacred Space

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

In the summer of 2010, artist Janis Kirstein thanked me for attention to dreams in her story of healing. “There’s not much interest” in dreams, she remarked. “People lost interest in dreams after Jung.”

After interviewing Kirstein, who lives in the Cherokee Park section of Louisville, Kentucky, I  dreamt of a Jeep Cherokee. Dreams for personal growth, healing, and wisdom  are integral to Cherokee medicine  – along with plants, prayers, and ritual.

Kirstein and her neighborhood’s namesake are reminders:

Reviving the power of dreams as a spiritual, transformational vehicle outside religion or psychotherapy forms the heart of Plum Dreams Journal.

FROM JOYCE:
Skeleton Remains of U.S. Found,
Once Vibrant Nation Murdered

Friday, April 16th, 2010

The remnants of a body in an open grave. A shadowy figure feasts on the skull.

I awoke from this dream Sunday morning, March 21, trembling and fearful. In my journal, I wrote: This dream reports/foretells the dire consequences of the Obama/Democratic health insurance legislation the House is voting on today.

The misleadingly named legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PL 111-148), which President Obama signed March 23, entrenches the corporate dominated health insurance industry — WellPoint/Anthem/Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Humana, Aetna, United Health — and the big pharmaceutical companies, possibly irrevocably, in the U.S. health system. (The Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, PL 111-152, which Obama signed March 30, is a companion to PL 111-148.)

Negative Pattern

Another sell-out, another massive transfer of U.S. taxpayer dollars, this time under the guise of health insurance premiums, to these corporations exempt from anti-trust laws.

Congress, with the White House orchestrating, wrote the legislation with enough loopholes to drive a Hummer through. The failure of Obama and the Democrats to honestly fix the broken system will also jeopardize viable health insurance programs like the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) and Medicare and derail hope of real reform.

But Obama and the Democrats cleverly used the Republican opposition and faux cries of socialism and communism as cover, while handing insurance and drug companies another key to the Treasury. This is “historic” legislation, not as the White House and media equate with “sweeping reform,” but because this massive over haul is a giant step toward fascism.

Truth-in-Labeling

Fascism is business controlling/dominating government. Communism is its polar opposite — government controlling business. Socialism is state ownership of industry, of capital.
