I had a couple of strange dreams this year.

In one dream, I was inside an old abandoned factory along a river, not unlike the ones which dot the New England landscape in which I live. The factory was in beautiful condition, but all the machinery had been removed. There were people in the dream, enjoying a cookout inside the empty red brick structure.
 
An older man and a younger woman approached me. They pointed to a manhole cover with a square concrete base. The concrete had a date, "5-15-06", scrawled by a human finger, into it. I was aware within the dream, that this was supposed to be the date of someone's death.

The older man said, "He died during some labor unrest."

The younger woman said, "The company had him killed."

I took one last look at the manhole, and then I woke up. It's entirely possible that it really was just an odd dream and nothing more, but what if it wasn't? Was I a murderer in another life? Was I the victim? Why would these ghosts or whatever, be hanging out in an abandoned factory, telling me about someone I never knew?

The second odd dream, was simply a word. I heard the name "JANET!" at 2:32AM, on January 26 of 2006. When people speak during my dreams, they do it in a certain voice. This wasn't like that at all. It was literally like several people were leaning over me while I slept, and spoke the name directly in my ear. It was loud enough to wake me up.
 
The thing is, the only Janet I know is an elderly co-worker. I'd always thought of her as a less-than-friendly person, but I made the effort to become her friend. I felt that I was given some kind of omen, that I should try to make friends with every Janet I meet.  Smiley

My point is, Hermes is my patron deity, and I understand that He has something to do with our dreams. I never had experiences like these, before I began sacrificing to Him regularly.

Does anyone else have similar stories to tell, about Hermes and odd dreams?

Hmm...not really. I have a LOT of dreams involving Apollo, and a few involving others. I don't think Hermes has shown up in my dreams, or been connected to any of them. (I tend to follow a much stronger association of Morpheus and dreams personally)

Hermes just kicks me when my roommate isn't paying proper attention to him.

     Hi from Jen M

  Not dreams perhaps but definitely one vacation I took.  I thought it was amusing I met someone named Gabe there.  We talked a lot about

    traveling.  It seems like everything that's happened to me since then has been about opening boundaries.
