I had a much stronger sense of Gabriel's presence when I performed my petition then I've had in the past few days.  When I entered trance I received a lot of bird, especially songbird, imagery; it occurred to me that a singing bird could correlate to Gabriel's description as trumpeteer. At one point I had a very strong image of a bird wearing a crown, which I take as a reference to Gabriel's exalted status as the supreme herald. Had a lucid dream in which I dived into Lake Cayuga, which is located in Ithaca, where I attended college, took a swim, and afterwards talked to some tourists.  The water felt very cool and refreshing and seemed to soak up a lot of tension.  I took this as related to Gabriel's link to water. I lost lucidity and afterwards had some mundane dreams.
