Tsunami Dreams

I live in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. I keep having reoccurring dreams of a giant tsunami. In one dream I see the wave washing over the tallest buildings in my city. In another dream I'm at the top of the Malahat and the wave washes over the highway pulling cars down as it goes back out. In the last dream a couple of days ago I was a little further inland on top of a mountain and the wave reached me there too.

tell a history of one day a thousand or so years ago, the Elders told everyone to run to the top a high mountains and just as they reached the high point, a tsunami swept in and they survived. During the terrible 2004 Sumatra/Indonesian earthquake that swept an arch of destruction striking the coast of a dozen nations and taking the lives of an estimated quarter million people; it was only on the Andaman Islands that the indigenous people survived by somehow someway just knowing when it was time to run to high ground. Perhaps the Original Poster is telling us something. Could it be that our ru$hy ru$hy materiali$tic politrickal anti-$ociety think they've gained the world but they've lost their Souls and their ability to survive. Its said in the Universal big picture there is no anthropomorphic goody goody or baddy baddy, only action and consequences.

I’ve had many tidal wave dreams over my lifetime. A therapist suggested that dreams are frequently very literal. Our subconscious is illustrating our feelings and fears to us. In my case it’s due to a lifetime of many traumatic experiences where I felt helpless to do anything to help either myself or my loved ones. I have fewer of those types of dreams now that I’m older and have been able to process some of that trauma.

Not sure if this helps but the tsunami risk along southern Vancouver island is likely to come from a giant marine silt bank. It's thousands of years of silt brought to the sea by the Fraser River and is located just off shore. The thing is precariously balanced and a healthy sized earthquake might knock it over, which in turn may shove water over yonder. Or and asteroid might take us out, if the next heat dome doesn't first. Anyway, I'm going to try to make the best of today because it might be all we get.

> @omit their migration from Siberia ................... They do not! Fact is Indigenous folks on the Wet Coast of Kahnanda are presently so relatively new to the colonial era that they are processing these new tribulations ie. the Residential Concentration Camp horrors in the momentums of intergenerational traumas. However if you make the effort to speak to the Real Deal Indigenous Elders who have preserved the thread of connectivity to the ancientcy, you will hear that they speak of at least 5 migrations to Turtle Island (the Western Hemisphere) from the East as well by boat; and, some assert there have always been Indigenous Peoples upon Turtle Island; and that segues into the ancient history that originally there was one continent upon this Planet we call Earth. And of great interest, if anyone takes a flat map of the continents and cuts out what are now the various continents, they do reassemble like a puzzle into one continent ... Be Well ... Hoka'A
