I am in a swirling blackness. Nothing is clear or concrete – just swirling mists, howling wind, a universal maelstrom. I know the world is being destroyed, but don’t know the source. I can’t see anything, only hear the winds, and feel a dismal, lost energy, surging everywhere.
Then I am diving into the sea, going deeper and deeper, again through bleak,Â swirling water – no fish or sea life. I keep swimming down, down, down until I reach the bottom of the ocean and see a very dark, black sea creature with its beak stuck in the ground, in theÂ middle of the swirling.
I think it is a cormorant or merganser, some diving water fowl. The waters are moving in concentric circles around the bird, like a tornado that reaches up and out of sight.Â I know that this is the cause of the maelstrom and pull the bird out.Â Once it is unstuck, I know that the maelstrom is over and things will return to normal, but I don’t actually see this happen. I don’t swim back up and out of the water. The dream simply ends with resolution and relief….
