Great! Just what I have been interested in all my long life. These things are all true, I have done them all myself, but I am not a medium or anything, just an ordinary person. I also have the weirdest dreams all the time. Most of the time I know where they come from, just a rehash of what I have been doing, but put together in a ridiculous way. I just quickly ran through your writings and recognised the dream about driving without handlebars, but like on a one wheeled bicycle (contradiction, bi means two, but you know what I mean). I always take it for being a bit out of control. I hate that, I want to be in control! I am most of the time and those dreams are fortunately rare.
Now, which book is it we should try to read? Graham has not introduced you yet.
Just quickly: your awful dream about cooking the dog. I have had other horrible similar dreams, where I hated it but something in me said "it is necessary". So weird, I could never work out those dreams, and they made me feel very bad.
So, which book are we talking about?
