Midnight Butterfly

by Valley Reed


Rise into infinity,

Come away with me,

Come away with me.


Midnight Butterfly 

wild and free,

show me possibilities.


Giant wings alight my crown.

My head in flight,

and my feet on the ground.


Enter the infinite,

beyond inhibitions.

No prerequisite

for dream exhibitions.


Free to roam

and wander around,

explore the mundane,

reveal the profound.


Dimensions of dreaming,

flooding my mind.

depths of meaning,

wise and kind.


Dream memories land

on fluttery wings. 

Beyond understanding 

the order of things.


Midnight butterfly flight

visit my dreams, 

guide me tonight…


Wisdom wings

of the soul kind,

open my mind.


Travel far 

on intentions set, 

Discovering where

you haven’t been yet.


Creative winds 

are expected to blow.

Remembering how 

to forget what you know. 


Rise into infinity

Come away with me,

Come away with me.


Midnight butterfly

take me dreaming

From a sight so high,

reality is streaming.


Butterfly flight 

in dreams tonight,

take me where

you want to go.


Show me your wings,

covered in all things

artful and mysterious. 

Show me places 

marvelous and curious.


Set course for

the upper realm.

Whisper your magic spell,

with love at the helm.


A place where spirit dwells 

in the unseen world,

let my wings unfurl.

A place my soul delights

and vision swirls,

let dreams take flight.

Dream Warrior

In a conscious dream, I was focused on a golden skinned, bare chested, bald headed man, who sat relaxed on a stone, as he held a long spear. His mysterious golden eyes stared off into the distance. Suddenly, he turned his gaze toward me, an observer in the dream and not visible. He claimed, “I see you!”

This turn of events was quite surprising for me, and brought my awareness back into my body, awakening me from my sleep. I could still feel the force of his gaze on me and the words he threw in my direction. I began to realize what this could mean, if I could see him in his time, he could also see me. In other words, I am dreaming him, and he is dreaming me. Woah!

This dream visit was perhaps a time travel excursion to a parallel life. It felt like an important connection, and I wondered about his unusual golden eyes.

When I thought about it, they reminded me of the eyes of a lion.

Shortly after this mysterious dream, I facilitated a workshop in which I offered shamanic group dream journeys through each of the chakras, guided by the sound of the drum. While drumming for the crown chakra journey, my dream re-appeared immediately and my dream warrior, became a trusted guide. I found myself in the upper realm in an ancient temple, carved into the side of a mountain. Which I found upon later research, highly resembles the ancient Lycian tombs in Turkey, which were at one time part of the ancient Grecco-Roman World, as reflected in the architectural style of the tombs resembling Greek Temples.

Carved into the side of this mountain is also perhaps the people who were buried in this tomb city. A relief carving shows a bald headed shirtless warrior holding a spear, much like my dream warrior.

Inside the temple, I was instructed to lay down on a stone platform in the center of the room. When I did, eight doors of golden light opened and surrounded me in the temple. My dream warrior came over next to me and shape shifted into a beautiful Lion with golden eyes, there to guard and protect me as I journeyed forth through the portals of light. I came out of the dream ceremony and my dream warrior was stood before me once again. He gave me a scroll, which I opened and it read, “Go Out!” A portal of golden light appeared, blazing before me, inviting me to step through once again. I have been given an initiation into the light, and an invitation to step through these solar portals, into further exploration of the heavenly realms.

The Book of Uriel

In a meditation during a kundalini yoga class last month, I was gifted an experience with meeting with my guardian angel. In my vision, I stuck my head into a paradisaical upper realm that was lush with greenery and a sparkling stream flowing through. The sky shown a light that was other worldly in its beauty. I walked into this space and stepped into the stream and when I did the stream became like a mirror reflecting the light in the sky. The light became more intense and I walked on the mirrored stream toward the beautiful light on the horizon, and saw my reflection on the mirrored path before me.  A figure emerged from the light and walked toward me on the mirrored path. It was an angel made of light. He was well defined and muscular looking in his form, but made entirely of light. He had beautiful wings pointed in the sky and he stepped onto the ground next to the stream and I followed him there. I asked him his name, and he responded Uriel. I asked 3 times all together, just to be sure, and each time he responded Uriel. He told me he was my guardian angel and that he was there to protect me. He told me that I have not felt secure in my life very often and that he would bring me security. He told me I needed to feel that security in order to be able to let my heart out.  I trusted his words and felt the inner recognition of what he told me and accepted him as my guardian angel. I asked him what was my purpose in this life, and he responded, to heal. He then began to infuse me with his light and using the tip of his wings as a tool to go into my body and perform some kind of light surgery on me.  He was giving me healing and I felt the light in my body.

Book of Uriel

Several day later, I dreamt of seeing a an old hardbound yellow book which said, “Book of Uriel” on the spine.  I opened the book to see what it had inside and what I saw was a picture of a place that was incredibly familiar and stirred an intense longing of my soul upon seeing it. There was  a river, with a bridge crossing over to a gateway, which had an outlook tower with a spire on top. A stone walled perimeter protected the castle inside.  Upon opening the book in my dream and seeing the picture there, I was immediately transported to the scene in the picture.  There I hovered over the bridge leading to the gate.  Yet I was confused, what is this place that I seem to know so deeply, yet I do not have the faintest idea where I am? EOD.


This dream was important to me, in that it confirmed my experience in my meditation. It was also powerful and mysterious in finding the book and being transported to a place familiar and yet unknown to me. I feel the hand of Uriel opening up a mystery to me and I will continue to work with this to discover what has been laid before my path.
