For the benefit of new readers:  One of my many oddities is that I am unable to see images in my mind.  I have vivid dreams with the normal, real-looking visuals, but when I close my eyes and try to see something, the best I can manage are fast, dark flashes.  3.5 years ago, God gave me my 1st “waking image,” aka “eyelid image,” where when I was awake but with my eyes closed I could see an image. These images appear without any effort from me, and they are not images of my choosing, although they are sometimes things that I would generally like to see.  The can be either static or moving, realistic or surreal.  The first one was dark and dim, but later ones were better.  The previous 15 were:  11-1-10, 11-19-10, 11-24-10, 1-21-11, 1-28-11, 1-29-11, 3-22-11, 2 on 5-28-11, 10-5-11, 10-30-11, 7-20-12 , 10-22-12, and 2 on 11-13-12.  I’ve skipped over a year and a half without one;  I don’t know why, or why the other, smaller chunks without one happened, although I think that periods of heavy stress were part of it.

I vaguely think that I might have had one recently and forgotten to record it, although I’ve DREAMED that I needed to write one down, too, so I can’t be sure.  I AM sure that, early this morning as I was trying to get to sleep, God gave me my 16th and 17th eyelid images.  The first one was barely discernible, black against nearly black;  it was like a cartoony ferris wheel full of crude figures spinning around.  The second one was still very dark, but a little clearer.  It was like a jumbled frieze of crude figures.  Imagine something like this:


except there were multiple rows, and they were MOVING, as if they were…  fighting, maybe?  The other interesting element is that I had a dream that referred to a friend after I saw them;  multiple past images were either after dreams of him or actually showed him.  Considering how rare dreams of him have become, and how long I went without the images…  VERY interesting

I have no idea what it means, but I know that any new ability comes from God, so I’m recording it.
