I am Burabanjindurri
I am Burabanjindurri, I am an Aboriginal Spiritual Being. My purpose is to bring healing to the land. My purpose is to heal the rift between Aboriginals and those of European descent.

Dream notes and associations
Last night, before going to sleep I was reading a chapter in Grace Karskens' book on aboriginal spirituality and how it blended with European spirituality. There was no spiritual being called Burabanjindurri but there was an aboriginal named Buraban who was instrumental in incorporating and blending Aboriginal and Christian spirituality. Had the dream throughout the night. I would wake up and return to the dream after falling back to sleep.
My feelings throughout the dream and on awakening
Sense of purpose. As an Aboriginal Spiritual Being I was naked and had a permanent erection. The dream felt sexual, but did not feel erotic.
Do I need to forgive those who abused me, all those years ago, and move on?
