Azaphaer's Dreams
Had a pretty interesting dream recently. Nothing Otherkin related per say, but figured it would be worth writing down.

It was a pretty strong dream, even having been 2 nights ago the details are still crisp enough to recall. I don't have dreams like this very often. Nothing full lucid, but partially I was aware what was going on wasn't exactly as it seemed.

I'm looking through the eyes of wolf/dog. No idea which, but definitely a canine. I say "looking through the eyes" very literally because the canine isn't me, and I'm aware of this during the dream. I'm not controlling the actions or even communicating with the dog, but I seem to be part of it in a way?

The dog in the dream had a very dark coat with faint silver flecking throughout its fur. This is similar enough to what the dog looked like:

In the dream we are going through wherever this world/place is outside in a hilly wooded area. The ground is very uneven under our paws and sloped. The dog seems to know what its doing and is looking for something. We come across and abandoned looking house in the middle of the woods. Its not in great shape, disheveled and probably been empty for a long time.

The house looks something like this:

We scrounge around the house for a bit. The dog is deliberate in the way it scans the room with its nose pointed to the ground. I can't smell anything that its doing, only see through the eyes. The vision is very dull and not full spectrum. Everything is extremely faded and washed out looking.

The vision is similar to how images depict dog vs human sight:

At some point in the dream we come across a knife/sword. In the dream we think of the object as a knife but it looked more like a sword. Its large and heavy, but the dog is able to pick it up in our mouth and hold it. The dream gets a little fuzzy between picking up the knife and going through the rest of this house. We left this house I'm sure, and ended up trudging back down the slope to another place.

We're not in the abandoned house anymore, this place is instead what once was a grocery or convenance type of store. The dog goes through the aisles, sniffing and checking through everything there. The shelves are still lined with abandoned goods. Dust and cobwebs cover everything. After perusing the shelves we pad across the wooden floor boards to the back of the shop, beyond the counter into what looks more like a living space. The shop was connected to wherever the keeper must have also lived.

In the back we tread past piles of abandoned paperwork, an old couch, until we come across a large demon(wolf?) It has long disproportionate legs and hunches in a way that doesn't seem natural or right.

Its difficult to describe or find images to match, but something like this:
[Image: skinwalker-hunched-over-with-wolf-head-featured.jpg] [Image: RemusLupin_WB_F3_ConceptOfLupinInForestA...amp;fm=jpg]

It's body looked like the images above, but it was pure white with red eyes. The head also looked more like a wolf with a misaligned jaw. We charge the demon wolf and begin to fight it. The dog fights and slashed at it with the knife while I still continue to watch through its eyes. There comes a point where I manifest to help in the fight with magic. I'm somewhat alongside the wolf now, but not physically or visibly. With my help we are then able to destroy the demon with a blast of some type of energy I throw at it while the dog drives in its knife.

The dream ends there. I wake up and its still fresh in my mind now. Meaningless dream, something more? I don't know.

RE: Azaphaer's Dreams
I'm envious you were able to remember so much detail about the dream!

Did the dog/wolf you were a ride-along with feel familiar at all? Maybe it was you from a past life? Or a companion to you in a past life?

And how did the dog/wolf wield the knife/sword?

I hardly experience dreams(no more than a couple a year), but when I do they often end up intensely detailed like this!

I like that phrase "ride-along", as that describes pretty well what this felt like. For familiarity, the dog did not ring any bells with me no. Everything about the dream still felt quite new to me, like I was just thrown into someone else's life. It didn't feel the same as when I dream about past lives though felt more involved then what my mind would make up. I was definitely a separate entity from the dog, almost like a headmate to it or spirit companion?

The dog was able to hold the weapon in its mouth. It picked up the blade which I could feel the weight of in our jaw uncomfortably. Not the most well balanced but it managed.

I used Dall E Mini AI Generator, and it gets the idea pretty close?

RE: Azaphaer's Dreams
I've heard ride-along used by some pagans who have experienced gods coming into them. It's also called god-horsing.

And that's how I envisioned the knife holding.
