Quantum Leap

I dreamt
I flew among the stars
   skirted between planets
   cracked open doors
   to distant worlds.

                                       I dreamt
                                       I plunged into the deep
                                          touched ocean floors
                                          sifted through sand
                                          for hidden treasure.

I dreamt
I tunneled to earth’s core
midst roiling, writhing magma
set free the Watchers* waiting
for redemption.

                                         I woke
                                         I drifted toward the sun
                                            and grasped a ray
                                            to turn back time
                                            into my dreams.

*Watchers: From Biblical Apocrypha:

In the Book of Enoch, the watchers are angels dispatched to Earth to watch over the humans.

They soon begin to lust for human women, and at the prodding of their leader Samyaza, they defect en masse to illicitly instruct and procreate among humanity. The offspring of these unions are the Nephilim, savage giants who pillage the earth and endanger humanity. Samyaza and associates further taught their human charges arts and technologies such as weaponry, cosmetics, mirrors, sorcery, and other techniques that would otherwise be discovered gradually over time by humans, not foisted upon them all at once. The Greek myth of Prometheus revealing fire-making to humans without Zeus’s permission is likely a variant of the same ancient legend, and it is possible also that ancient legends among many cultures about cannibalistic giants and pervasive implementation of magical powers (such as in the tale Jack and the Beanstalk) arise from the same ancient mythology that came to inspire the Books of Enoch. Eventually God allows a Great Flood to rid the earth of the Nephilim, but first sends Uriel to warn Noah so as not to eradicate the human race. While Genesis says that the Nephilim remained “on the earth” even after the Great Flood, Jude says that the Watchers themselves are bound “in the valleys of the Earth” until Judgment Day.

    I loved your dream. It is as though you became one with the earth herself.
    The Watchers still lower the vibrations here with their sensory love of the material.

    Interesting poem and layout. The info afterwards reminds me of the messages from the Pleiadians channeled by Barbara Marcinlak. Pretty fantastic theory expecially if you couple it with crop circles which keep appearing. Good job, Victoria! Hugs, pat

  14. Yes, I guess on Judgrment Day it’ll come out in the wash.

    Never heard about all the mirror, cosmetics and such coming into being like that. Sorcery indeed.

    And I really like the line in the poem about cracking the door open to other worlds. I visualize someone peeking through to the other side.

    Via this powerful piece of visionary travelling, we are reminded of just how much ancillary myth and sorcery there is in and around the Old Testament.

    Wow, excellent.
    We all need to go back to sleep every once in a while.
    To swim in the ocean and get knocked out and eaten by a pistol shrimp. lol

    This really gives me chills. I’ve never seen a poem on Enoch’s journey before, even though it is about as epic as they get. The “explanatory” note is also fascinating, the core of new age philosophy connected to the most mainstream of sources. I’d like to see more of this!
