    Last night I dreamt I was in a glass submarine. I was at the bow and saw a pod of orcas. There was a night Artic feeling to the outside and I couldn’t tell if the orcas we swimming in the sea or amongst the constellations. They had energetic blue-ish white horns, like a narwhale. They were playing ball with a white orb of light. It was amazing to witness

    The most vivid dream I’ve ever had of an orca has stuck with me for a couple of years now… It’s always been an animal I’ve loved.

    There was a beautiful U-shaped cove with a strip of sandy beach surrounding it. I remember flying into it as opposed to coming in on a boat. The water was deep, though there was a shallower shelf that rimmed the cove, before it plunged into darker blues. A pod of orcas swam in this cove. I seemed to float right above the ocean, excited to see the orcas. Some skimmed the surface, their dorsal fins upright, but mostly they stayed under water. Then, as soon as I was in the water, fear crept in. I was afraid of the orca’s seeing me and attacking me since I was in their domain. I stuck my head under water and an orca swam really fast towards me. I felt panicked but stayed where I was. And the orca diverted once it hit a certain point about ten feet in front of me and swam back to its pod.
    I felt so scared that I needed to swim to the shore as a reprieve. Shortly after, I feel I need to go back into the water. However, it was like I had gone back to my first entry to the cove (from the ocean side) and was flying back into it again, almost as though from a helicopter’s perspective before flying in myself. Once I reached the same spot as before to watch the orcas, I dropped myself back into the water and submerged myself. Through a couple of orcas swimming a bit deeper than before, I could see a different kind of orca. It had intricate weaving, nearly tribal, white designs on the black part of its body. The fear of it noticing me hit me again, and I lifted my head out of the water, but something told me to stay so I went back under to watch this stunning orca swim in the water.
