This is the one daylight vision I have had. A medicine woman sang into my forehead and this is what I saw.
First from the darkness behind my eyelids the shaped emerge. Vertiginous symmetries, a symbolic crysanthemum, the four pointed star, the medicine wheel, wheels inside of wheels. This gives way to swimming with turtles along the coast of an island. I am a phantom moving like a dolphin. When I break the surface there are more symmetries, but this time floating above a purple sea.
I see an inverted pyramid floating above another pyramid. They are transluscent. Then Plants of which the seeds are fetuses of golden light. Elephants pick the seeds and drop them through the bottom of the upper pyramid. I see there is a river of golden lights drifitng down through with the seeds into the bottom pyramid, where they dissappear. When I look into the bottom pyramid I see that the bottom of it is a window into earth. The river of light are souls returning. Some of them split apart, some of them come together, some stay the same, but they all leave the fetal souls alone.
Then I see a white light. It drifts up and down. It is far away between a great swelling of deeper purple waves that never crash, like canyon walls. In the instant it draws my attention I am there at his feet. A buffalo headed man with many fingers too a hand. Gorgeous intelligent hands. He is tossing a ball of silver light up and down in his left hand. In his right he leans on an old staff. His horns bend majestically. His eyes are ancient, piercing, calm.
I did not understand then, that the light could have been mine. Am I ready for the light now? I want the light now. Come back.
Light, traditionally, is equated with the spirit (9). Ely Star asserts that
the superiority of the spirit is immediately recognizable by its luminous intensity. Light is the manifestation of morality, of the intellect and the seven virtues
(54). Its whiteness alludes to just such a synthesis of the All. Light of any given
colour possesses a symbolism corresponding to that colour, plus the significance
of emanation from the ‘Centre’, for light is also the creative force, cosmic energy irradiation (57). Symbolically, illumination comes from the East. Psychologically
speaking, to become illuminated is to become aware of a source of light, and, in
consequence, of spiritual strength (32).
To see light in your dream, represents illumination, clarity, guidance, plain understanding, and insight. Light is being shed on a once cloudy situation or problem. You have found the truth to a situation or an answer to a problem. Also consider the color of the light for additional significance.
If the light is particularly bright, then it indicates that you need to move toward a higher level of awareness and feeling. Bright light dreams are sometimes common for those who are near death.
To see soft or shadowy lighting in your dreams, indicates feelings and thoughts from the primal aspects and less developed parts of your unconscious.
To dream that you cannot turn on the light, indicates a lack of insight and perspective on a situation.
If you dream of light, success will attend you. To dream of weird light, or if the light goes out, you will be disagreeably surprised by some undertaking resulting in nothing.

There is an apparent contradiction in the symbolism of the pyramid. In the first place, in megalithic culture and in European folklores which have
preserved its memory, it is symbolic of the earth in its maternal aspect. Pyramids
with Christmas decorations and lights, moreover, express the twofold idea of
death and immortality, both associated with the Great Mother. But this concerns
the pyramid only in so far as it is a hollow mountain, the dwelling of ancestors
and an earth-monument. The pyramid of stone, of regular geometrical shape,
corresponds to fire, at any rate in the Far East (4). Marc Saunier has suggested the
right approach to a more precise understanding of the problem. He regards the
pyramid as a synthesis of different forms, each with its own significance. The
base is square and represents the earth. The apex is the starting-point and the
finishing-point of all things—the mystic ‘Centre’ (Nicholas of Cusa, in his disquisitions, concurs with this interpretation). Joining the apex to the base are the
triangular-shaped faces of the pyramid, symbolizing fire, divine revelation and
the threefold principle of creation. In consequence, the pyramid is seen as a
symbol expressing the whole of the work of creation in its three essential aspects.

In the Egyptian tongue, the term designating the hand was related to
that for the pillar (or a support, or strength) and for the palm (4). In esoteric
doctrine, the position of the hand in relation to the body, and the arrangement of
the fingers, convey certain precise symbolic notions (48). According to the Egyptian system of hieroglyphs, the hand signifies manifestation, action, donating and
husbandry. An eye in association with a hand—as for example in some oriental
mythic beings—symbolize ‘clairvoyant action’ (19). Schneider concedes a major
rôle to the hand ‘because it is the corporeal manifestation of the inner state of the
human being’ and because ‘it expresses an attitude of mind in terms other than the
acoustic’—or, in other words, a gesture. It follows, then, that the raised hand is
the symbol of the voice and of song; the hand placed on the breast indicates the
attitude of the sage; placed on the neck it denotes sacrifice; two hands joined
signifies mystic marriage—the Jungian individuation; the hand covering the eyes
represents clairvoyance at the moment of death (50). Of great importance is the
fact that the hand has five fingers, firstly, because of its broad analogy with the
human figure (composed of four extremities plus the head), and, secondly, by
reason of the symbolism of the number five (denoting love, health and humanity)
(40). In Egyptian hieroglyphics, the open hand signifies any specificially human
task as well as magnetic force (19)—an idea also characteristic of pre-Columbian
America. And a very similar belief lies behind the widespread use of the hand as
an amulet in Islamic cultures. According to Berber thought, the hand signifies
protection, authority, power and strength; the manus had the same meaning for
the Romans, symbolizing in particular the authority of the pater familias and of
the emperor, and is sometimes to be seen surmounting the signum of the legions
in place of the imperial eagle. In the Islamic amulets mentioned above, the figure
of the hand undergoes various modifications or appears in association with other
symbols, as, for instance, the star, the dove, the bird, the fan, the zigzag and the
circle, forming emblems comparable with those of the Christian West (12). The
familiar emblem of the ‘linked hands’ is expressive of a virile fraternity, or solidarity in the face of danger (49). In Jung’s opinion, the hand is endowed with a generative significance (31). The difference between the right hand and the left is
usually ignored, but when the distinction is made it appears merely to serve the
purpose of enriching the basic significance with the additional implications of
space-symbolism, the right side corresponding to the rational, the conscious, the
logical and the virile; the left side representing the converse (33). There are alchemic images which represent a King clasping in his own left hand the left hand
of the Queen. Jung suggests that this may refer to the unconscious character of
their union but that it may also be indicative either of affection or of suspicion
