Dream of: 19 August 2019 "Taking A Shortcut"

While walking along a city street, I take a detour through an open gate of a fenced lot. As I pass into the concrete lot, I think this lot belongs to the electric company. Although I have a vague feeling that I should not be here, I nevertheless start walking across the lot. As I walk over several rows of speed bumps, something which seems like a magnetic force takes hold of me. I am immobilized and lifted into the air a short distance above the ground. Unable to move, I am held in the air. I am unsure what force has restrained me like this. I am in no pain, but am completely paralyzed.

Once the force stops, I descend to the ground and begin walking again. I now sense that someone has been watching me and has exerted the force on me. Clearly I was not supposed to cross this lot, however innocuous my action might have been. I now anticipate that I am going to have a problem here. I just want to tell someone that I was only taking a shortcut - that is my story at this point.

I continue walking to the other side. The area now looks more like a military installation - or perhaps an embassy. People on the other side are milling around the large gate which consists of metal bars. The gate is opened and a group of soldiers march through from outside into the lot. They look like strong men. One has a few whiskers which stick out from his face. I contemplate the life of a soldier and wonder what kind of man would dedicate his life to being a soldier.

A couple very tall, black men walk out of a small building which is sitting on the lot. They are dressed in beige military uniforms and are wearing beige hats. They are obviously high-ranking military personnel. I have the feeling that the building is part of an embassy and that these men are representatives of a foreign government, probably from Africa. Some words are written on their hats. I think the words may be the name of the country which the men represent. I have difficulty understanding the words, but one looks as if it may be, "Boire." I do not know of any African country named "Boire," but I try to visualize a map of the countries on the western coast of Africa to see if I remember any countries by this name. The men walk past me toward the gate.

Other people also exit through the gate when it is opened. I also want to leave through the gate, but I have the feeling that I am not supposed to leave. I stand and watch a group of perhaps twenty people file out of the gate. Nobody is saying anything directly to me, although I feel as if I am being watched. I decide that the next time a group leaves through the gate, I am also going to leave.

When a small group of three or four people walk out through the gate, I follow. Just outside the gate, a man in a white uniform suddenly steps up in front of me and stops me from advancing. I back up inside. I just stand here. Now I do not know how I am going to leave. Obviously I am not supposed to leave until I am allowed.

I wonder how long this could take. It might take a day - it might take months. I just do not know. I am sure, however, that I am being held here. There is no doubt about that.
