Recently, in a week’s worth of dreams, I’ve encountered polar bears – twice. Each one, magnificent and mighty, stormed through two very different dreams, several nights apart. Each bear literally burst into my dreams. Clearly they wanted to get my attention.

Often we’re blind to our own dream’s meanings—and you can color me guilty. Like someone looking for a polar bear in a blizzard, perhaps, I couldn’t see what was right in front of my eyes.

I asked some of my dream-savvy friends what the polar bears might symbolize. “Well,” my friend Gale said, as if hesitant to insult me by stating the obvious, “Polar bears are endangered,” she said. “Their habitat is literally melting away. The situation is urgent. Haven’t you seen the Coke cans with the Polar Bears on them?”

I hadn’t. But I was beginning to see the light.

In preparation for our upcoming 350Dreamers dream for global healing (Monday night, March 19), I’ve been thinking a lot about the global nature of dreaming. I’ve searched my dreams for possible information, messages, symbols and images that might relate to issues beyond my day-to-day personal concerns.

All at once I saw that the polar bear was my global symbol. These bears were asking me perhaps, to notice them. To pay attention! Through the haze of every day distractions and concerns, I felt called to think about these creatures enthroned at the top of the food chain, but who are suddenly faced with an enemy they have no means to oppose: Global climate change caused by human action … and inaction.

Inspired by these dream visitors, I thought for several days about what I can do for them. I already try to live an Earth-friendly lifestyle. I reduce, re-use and recycle with the best of them.

But with no new ideas or inspirations about what more I could do,  the bear and its stark presence in my dreams faded from the forefront of my mind. Until today. I was walking in New York City when I stumbled upon a little toy bear, dressed in her holiday best, perched on the sidewalk on East 87th Street.

And not a block later I came across another one, this one gracing a discarded Coke can—the one my friend Gale had told me about, but that I hadn’t seen before.

Still, I haven’t had any brainstorm as to what I can do for the plight of the polar bears, or our planet. In the meantime they’ve become like a touchstone for me. Each time they appear in my dreams, or in my life, I’m letting them act as reminders to bring my focus back to the question and the intention.

350 Dreamers was created in response to a call to action by environmentalist and author Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org. McKibben and 350.org asked people worldwide to take part in a grassroots day of consciousness raising and political action by planning creative and attention-getting actions to take place on October 24th, 2009.

I started 350 Dreamers after hearing a talk by McKibben, which stirred my desire to get involved by involving my core values:

  1. A belief in the power of dreams,
  2. A belief in the beauty of community and communal action and
  3. A commitment to healing on all levels from personal to planetary.

So, as we near 350.org’s global day of action (October 24) and 350 Dreamers’ final two  group dreams (on the nights of September 23 and October 23 respectively) I want take this opportunity to get the word out far and wide about who we are and what we are doing.

As of today we have 330 members from all over the U.S. and an impressive list of countries worldwide including Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark Israel, Japan, Mexico, Panama, Wales … and many more!

Let’s tell the world about it:

  1. Invite your friends and colleagues from around the corner and around the world to join us.
  2. Mention 350 Dreamers and 350.org on your blog, at meetings, at your dinner table and at dinner parties … you get the idea.
  3. Let your local DJ, blogger, print or broadcast journalists know about what we’re up to. There is a press release posted under the “Media” tab on this blog that you can copy and paste into emails onto your web site, etc.

In the meantime, I look forward to dreaming with all of you on the night of Wednesday, September 23.

Dream Big!

A couple of months ago my friend and I went to hear author and environmentalist Bill McKibben speak at a local college. Honestly, I had mixed feeling about going to hear his talk on global climate change. After all, I already rinse out and reuse plastic bags, bike or walk instead of drive when I can, eat a nearly vegetarian diet and turn off lights behind friends, family members and co-workers in an effort to protect and conserve the earth’s precious resources. Why did I want to sit in an auditorium and be lectured at about the dire straits our planet is in?

But I left that auditorium feeling inspired. Bill McKibben invited everyone in the room to find a way to join his earth-saving crusade (350.org) and dream up creative ways to draw attention to global warming – and global healing — on United Nations Day, Oct. 24, 2009.

 I took the challenge and here’s what I dreamed up:

 I decided to invite 350 people to focus their dreams and visions on global healing, all on the same night.

There is much evidence out there that our minds have the power to heal. So let’s put our heads together – our dreaming heads in this case – all on the same day, and direct our dreams to the same goal: healing our planet!

They say two heads are better than one – what about 350 heads?

 So, here’s what you can do:

  •  Invite your friends to join us. Sign up here or on Facebook.
  •  Join us for our monthly dream events … beginning tomorrow night, May 23/24 and culminating on the night of Oct. 23/24 by which time I hope to have 350 dreamers dreaming and visioning on the same night, all over the planet.
  • Post your dreams and visions (or links to pictures, poems, videos depicting their healing dreams and visions) here on the 350 Dreamers blog or facebook page.
  • Practice directing your dreams. There are suggestions on this blog, and on the links listed on this blog. It’s easier than you think. It’s powerful. It’s fun. It’s healing and inspiring.

 Sweet – and healing — dreams to all!
