Cow-eared Dreams and Hathors

Hathor - Image from

I promised yesterday that I would write about one recurring dream I had as a small child. If I am honest, it was not one dream, dreamt over and over. It was one place, and one particular image, although the happenings in the dream changed – just as life differs from day to day, even in the same house, and with the same cast of characters.

I would often draw an image from those dreams: a really tall lady with cow ears and long hair, who wore a magical geometric necklace. She was much taller than the people around her.  In my dreams somehow this cow woman was me.

The place in my dreams was green and lush, a paradise by a river. The stars at night were glorious. There was almost always music, and sometimes the music came from me. I sang songs that used sound but no words. When I toned those notes they would vibrate through my whole body. It felt sacred, like I was singing to the sun and the stars.  I always awoke from my dreams feeling calm and comforted.

After adolescence the dreams stopped. I forgot all about them until one day I dropped a friend off at a meditation centre.  Back then I didn’t meditate. I was interested in being normal, invested in being a success in the corporate world.

I walked into a room with a poster on the wall.  This poster…

My dreams came rushing back to me. I felt my heart constrict. I knew her face, not quite the same but so close I may have been looking at a sister.The face in the poster looked so like the pictures I had drawn, only she wasn’t wearing her necklace. I asked who the image in the poster was.

A Hathor, I was told.  I didn’t know what that meant. I felt uncomfortable to ask. I was far outside my comfort zone.

I stayed up late into the night, searching the web, and reading everything I could on Hathors.  Some sites said that Hathor was an Ancient Egyptian Goddess. But that didn’t feel right to me.  I was sure that Hathors were real.  Some sites said Hathors were beings who visited Earth but did not originate from our planet.

Part of me was horrified. Part of me felt relieved. Part of me felt like I’d come home. It was all so strange. I didn’t know what to make of it, and there was no-one to talk to about it, so in the end I put it aside. Anyway, what would people think?

A while later I plucked up the courage and had a necklace made to match the one I had drawn as a child. I knew its design by heart. It took months after I brought it home before I was brave enough to wear it in public. I never told people how I had come by the design, although many people asked me.

Looking back, I see how significant wearing that necklace was for me.  In fact, I didn’t realise until I was writing this how quickly my psychic gifts developed after that. It was as if I stepped into a contract with myself, or claimed a lost part of me.

I would never want to change who I am, or this ability within me. And while I seem to have so many answers for others, for myself I often have only questions…

I never see the Hathor in my dreams anymore, but at night, sometimes, I still hear her music.

  1. Just had to Google “dreamt of hathor”
    In my dream I was in an old city looking up to a balcony of a clay but elegant building
    I kept yelling “hathor!!!… Hathor… Come out…

  2. Love your article! I have also felt drawn to the Hathor. I suspect you have not done so here because it is too personal, but I wonder if you would consider sharing a photo of the necklace. I would love to see what it looks like.

  3. What an extraordinary story, it must have been a tremendous shock to you to see that poster on the wall. No wonder you have more questions than answers. As far as I know there are no self-help guides to give you advice about what to do in such a situation, but perhaps you’ll write one? There must be other people elsewhere on the planet who have had a similar experience, I hope they find your blog.

  4. just sitting with your story, the top image resonates with an energy that is very similar to yours, the facial structure and the gentle smile are similar to contemplative photos of you, whilst very humble, you are clearly an old soul who is strongly connected to source, we are honoured that you have chosen to walk amongst us in this lifetime! sx

  5. Nicole, Beautiful dream – and so powerful! I love the Hathors. Have you heard Tom Kenyon’s music – he channels the Hathors and their song – and channels messages. They have been very active in helping us with this transition – to the new vibration.

    Love that you had the necklace made – it may help to remind you of “who you are and where you are from” in days to come – and on the days where you forget.

    I’m not surprised at the connection for they are such gentle loving beings, full of compasssion, and wisdom – just as you are

    Thanks for sharing xoxo

    Rhonda – I so empathise!



  6. yes, yes, yes, interesting, good pic, nice… “step into a contract”.

    wall of tears.
    confusion agitation can’t keep my hands still
    home, home, home,home,home,home, home

    1. remember? remember?

      tell me again the scent of the deep dark rose
      and speak the perfume of the rain washed air?
      teach that taste of summer’s first mango
      and show me the notes of the morning bird?

      earth,air, fire and water
      Father Sky and Mother Earth
      circle round the hearth of spirit
      light into the place of peorth

  7. What a wonderful story. Obviously, you were being called to Hathor or the Hathors and the necklace. I believe in paying attention to my dreams because though I may not know for a while what the message is, eventually it becomes clear. Thank you for sharing this.

    I’d like for you to consider writing a guest post for my blog. If you’re interested, log onto my blog and click on Guest Bloggers Information. I do believe we’re on the same page!!

  8. Thanks for sharing this lovely story Nicole. I too struggle to be brave with the things nearest and dearest to my heart and soul. I am having a difficult day today. It’s like even though I know all the answers on how to respond and change my vibration, nothing works for long and I just have to wait for it to pass. And always, caused by having to address something close and personal. Off to meditate! Have a wonderful day xo

    1. {{{HUGS}}} dear Rhonda. It will pass, and that is all you need to know. DO whatever you can to bring yourself back to a place of calm and centred-ness. Practice massive self nurture, and spend some time in nature. I’ll include you in my healing meditations too. xxooxx
