Dream-A-Way Disposals

We clean up all your broken dreams.

Namaste! My name is Mami Wati and I am a spiritual healer.

I live in quite a sizable commune on the outskirts of a small village. One of the weekly tasks is to collect all the dream-catchers and empty out all the broken dreams. No, it is not the most glamorous part of being the community healer but it is a job that has to be done.

Broken dreams cannot just be dumped in the trash bins and collected by the county collectors. This brings bad energy to the area.

There is a special place on the property where they must be safely disposed of. You cannot dump everybody’s broken dreams into a hole either. This is what makes nightmares as bits of random dreams join together and manifest into the energy field where people who are at their most sensitive states channel into them and activate them. Much like a radio tunes into a station and plays what is being broadcast. This explains why no nightmare is ever the same.

It is all part of the cleansing process.

Dream catchers are pretty good at catching dreams but their one major drawback is they catch incomplete pieces of dreams along with the good whole dreams people wanted. When they take out the wished-for dream they have no use for the other bits and pieces. That is why I need to collect them and empty them out. If there is insufficient room for a really big dream then the dream catcher will not accept it and it will move along to the nearest dream catcher that will.
