Dreams Sponsored By The Letter Z

Zebra: Represents perfect balance, unity, harmony, and the attraction of opposites.

Zen: Symbolizes your quest for spiritual balance and harmony. You are at peace with yourself. artwork by Stefano Vitale

Zenith: When you stare up into the zenith you are seeing how limitless your potential is. It is telling you not to be afraid to push your limits in pursuit of your goals.

Zero: Always represents absolute freedom and super-consciousness. It is synonymous with the world card in the tarot. It is the symbol of the circle which stands for infinity and completeness.

Zig-Zag: Symbolizes indecision and erratic behaviour. You are being defensive and need to get your shit together.

Zinnias: Indicates laughter, joy, friendship and the importance of appreciation.

Zodiac: Represents the many aspects of a person’s conscious being. It is a reminder that you are connected to the universe.

Zombie: Symbolic with feeling out of touch, feeling dead inside and simply going through the motions. You are detached from people and situations and need to get yourself back in the game.

Zoo: Symbolizes loss of freedom. You feel caged in and underappreciated. There is chaos and confusion in your life and now it is time for you to break free.

Zoomorphism: Indicates that you are becoming less civilized and restrained and are becoming more free and instinctive. This is an important dream as you are being called on to rely on your intuition.

Ooooh I love these!!! Can't say I dream about any of them..but fun anyway. I love the zodiac picture. Body painting and beauitfully done!

After posting Kate's Tattoo design this weekend..I was asked to maybe do another for a friend and did I enjoy doing them? Honestly..doing artwork that will live on someone's body appeals to me. I was promptly labeled a Hippie - LMAO..and told them no..just a granola. But it got me thinking about doing more of them.

The zombie picture - yikes that's scary. Love ya hon, Sarah

Morning, Renee! I would like to order one zen dream, and one zenith dream, please (wouldn't that be great if we could put in our orders?). Love to you - xoxo Pam

Deborah said...

What does it mean if I had a dream that my dog was run over by a car?

I love the body paintings. Absolutely amazing. Praying for a good week for your family, filled with good news. All my love, Deb

Meghann LittleStudio said...

Wow, I wish I had the zoomorphism dreams! I've never had a dream with a z, but they sound interesting. Thanks for an interesting post!!
Hugs and prayers,

Karin Bartimole said...

You have finished the alphabetized dream series with your usual insightfulness - and a collection of fabulous imagery Renee! I can't help but wonder, with curious anticipation, what's going to be next?! I have loved the way you have shared all your dream wisdom!
I think my prayer was answered, in that I was guided to find the words yesterday that would be most helpful to you. I'm grateful that I could play role of reminder to that which you already know - I will always be here for you.
much love, Karin

Tessa said...

Closing eyes and squishing face in concentration.....I want to dream Zebra tonight.

Sending huge baskets filled with love and flowers over the pond to you Renee. I'm also squishing face and closing eyes that your week will be a calmer, more peaceful, less painful one.

Marie S said...

Happy Monday Renee, I love Z. I was amazed at how many you came up with for Z.
I love the body painting for the zodiac signs. I have a friend that does that.
Love and hugs my pretty,
Have a blessed week,
Still praying.

YayaOrchid said...

Like the first song 'A M O', by Andrea Echeverri. She is spelling out the word "Amor", in the beginning, in case you didn't know. :)

Thank you for stopping by, I enjoy hearing from you.

suziart said...

My recurring dream is that I am still in high school and not going to graduate because I never took gym....

Funny because, when I was a junior and senior I could not take gym because of serious health problems...

Thoughts and prayers are sent to you and your remarkable family!XoXo


Elizabeth said...

I'm into the zoomorphism.

Marie S said...

And Cheers to you wonderful Renee. I forgot about the goddess. Carolyn made that too. She gave it to me. I love it too. She has a bird goddess around her neck. Womans body and bird head and arms. Carolyn is known for her goddess bodies. I will have to post some more for you to look at.
Howard and I even named a tool after her, the Carolyn Potter Butt Master. LOL!!!

secret agent woman said...

I ha da dream once where I became a bird - very freeing. Right now I'm in serious need of some Zen dreams.

studio lolo said...

The images are fantastic this week Renee.
I could never be in a zoo. You can't cage a raven. And oh, the bewitching hour of when I usually become Raven can vary. It depends on when my magic is needed.

How are things this week? I sure do worry about how you're holding up. How are J&S doing this week with all of their medical hurdles?
I have never seen a stronger, more resilient family than yours. But hey, Canadians are stalward folks, eh Renee?

Love you, Raven sister. Truly.


ArtPropelled said...

Thanks Renee, I enjoyed those. Zebra imagery seem to be popping up everywhere in my life just lately.

lakeviewer said...

I hope you are all getting stronger, and healing.
Love and best wishes. R.

Baino said...

Sending you zinnias and zebras by the truckload.

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Renee,

I love all your Z dream images and who would of thought you would come up with so many.

Praying for your family Renee, that it could be a much better week for you all.

Carolyn xo

~Babs said...

Unfortunately, as I've gotten older, I don't remember dreams.
These however, are fascinating.
Great art work,,,,and
whoever does your banner art is fabulous!
Hope all is some better this week. Maybe only baby steps,,,but stepping.

A Cuban In London said...

'need to get your shit together'.

This is probably the reply to the opening sentence of your previous post. I chuckled and then I remembered what you wrote in column before. That quote above is, to me at least, one of the reasons, why you are so strong. Many thanks for such a fantastic post.

Greetings from London.

Snowbrush said...

Hey, Renee, delete that previous comment, will you? It had a speling error and a grammatical insufficiency maybe too also. Of course, this one might not be so great either, but I sure gave it the old college try.

"I know that if you pray hard enough you will never be answered."

And KJ said to pray for you! Screw that, eh? To tell you the truth, I wasn't going to do it anyway, my experiences with prayer being pretty much like your own, it would appear. The very idea that God the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth (et cetera, et cetera, et cetera) would look down from his golden throne with all the rhinestones stuck in it (in my fantasy, he hides the real jewels because Michael the Archangel is a kleptomaniac), and say, "Well, I wasn't going to do squat for that old Canuck gal, Renee, but since that slimly little bastard Snowbrush is down there just a praying his heart out, I guess I better help her out after all."

rochambeau said...

Hi Renee,
If only to be a Zebra!
Love you
& BIG hearts to your fam.

TheChicGeek said...

Amazing Z things! Thank you for that...just what I needed today! You never fail to delight me :)

I love, love, love the banner girls gorgeous!

Marion said...

I like the Zinnias best. They're my new favorite flower to grow from seed. They're strong, beautiful, colorful and almost indestructible, great attributes for a flower or person! You're amazing, Renee. I love you. Blessings!

Rikkij said...

Renee- this was fun and interesting! I really like the last one and would love to grow a fox tale. gonna try it tonite when I go to sleep. Take care,~rick

Diana Evans said...

oh wow Renee!!! I love this post...and Zinnias!!! I grow a huge row every year on the border of my vegetable garden...and I love them!!! My Mom grew them when I was growing up and I am doing the same in my garden....


Poetic Artist said...

This is such a great post. I am such a a believer in dreams. Thanks for sharing..
I hope you have a good week.

Pattee said...

Zzzzzz... seems like sleeping. When your tired you need to rejuvenate. To sleep and to dream.

I like Zero....

Zinnia's are my most favorite flower!
I feel my friendship, laughter, joy, and appreciation for you! Oh and love..

I am the crab...looking for a new home as in the hermit crab. Always walking sideways. Is that like not wanting to be not committed?

I'm so tired I feel like a zombie.

I love you Renee...

mermaid said...

I love that I read all the spiritual z's and then get to zig-zag. I was laughing so hard!

Pattee said...

You did those zodiac signs??? They are wonderful...
And Yea for Cancers!!!!

Love Pattee

kj said...


too tired right now to do anything but zzzzzzz.

except to send love and a little kiss on your soft brave cheek


Yoli said...

Beautiful post my friend. I love Zebras almost as much as I love parrots so I am loving this post. Those bodies painted with the zodiac symbols are just fantastic. I am the Sag, which is you?

lyptis said...

Great post!

The body paintings are very interesting.
And i Love the zombie playground picture, so cool!
I wanna hang it in my house!:D

Bailey said...

Silver said...

I lmao at the Zig Zag Heart thingy.

"Get your shit together."

Nice way to tell someone off, dont you think.


Micki said...

Hugs and love

Micki x

Arija said...

Renee, how do you do it? with all that is going on in your life, how are you able to put together such a wonderful post? I am totally in awe of your capabilities.

I am a bit knocked sideways by tha dashed pressure in my head. I am retaining too much water again so breating isn't exactly a joy, you do not hear the wind blowing, instead you hear it as an irregular steam-train. Fun times again...

Manon Doyle said...

Hi Renee,
I'm breaking free from the! Love the body painting on the zodiac picture!!
Got your card! Thank you so very much!


Kate said...

Oh these are incredible images. I love zebras so you had me at the first image. The zodiac one was beautiful.


soulbrush said...

z=zippy. like you are, always bouncing back and staying positive, one of the things i love about you.

Woman in a Window said...

Zen who! Just kidding. The zoomorphism speaks to me though. Wishing I had a tail!

Mariana Soffer said...

The greek mathmatician Zeno, he is famous for writting several paradoxes, specially involving inginity, here is one of the most famous:
Achilles is in a footrace with a tortoise. He allows the tortoise a head start of 100 feet. If we suppose that each racer runs at a constant speed (the tortoise slower than Aquiles), then after some time, Achilles will have run 100 feet, bringing him to the tortoise's starting point. During this time, the tortoise has run a much shorter distance, say,10 feet. It will then take Achilles some further time to run that distance, by which time the tortoise will have advanced farther. Thus, whenever Achilles reaches somewhere the tortoise has been, he still has farther to go. Therefore, because there are an infinite number of points Achilles must reach where the tortoise has already been, he can never overtake the tortoise. Experience tells us that Achilles will be able to overtake the tortoise, which is why this is a paradox.

Snowbrush said...

"Experience tells us that Achilles will be able to overtake the tortoise"

It is that very same way when I have to go to the bathroom really bad, and I'm running, running...
