Yes, I had a dream.........not like MLK's but that would be a great dream. Anyways, I had a dream the other night that I vividly remember. I had figured out what I thought it was saying. And yesterday, I saw my beautiful friend Bridget and she really broke my dream down.
See Bridget studied and continuously studies Dream work. So let me tell you my dream and see if you can figure out what it means.
I am at my mom's house (I guess I should say my parents' house). And I am looking out the back of the house through a corner window (that does not exist) and I am standing next to my brother Mando. Through this window is a slight hill that I can see people working on the farm. I tell my brother there is suppose to be a storm coming. And he calmly says, "No, I don't think so." And as he turns I see a funnel cloud begin to form and slowly touch ground. Everyone comes running inside and we all go under the beds. And as I am hearing and feeling the storm I am thinking. I am thinking that my mom's house is a cinder block house. If this tornado hits it it is going to tear it down or it is going to bypass it but it is not going to lift it up and toss it around. So I know it is just the wind and I need to get out from under the bed. And as I do, I wake up.
Interesting, huh? I have been having a lot of strange dreams lately. Mostly I blame it on the hormones but I think some have meaning. When I shared my dream with Bridget it was so great to hear that dreams truly do mean something and our unconsciousness is speaking to us. And in a very special way God is speaking through our dreams to us.
She asked me to describe my brother. And I could only use the words like steady, strong, caring, calm, quiet and a leader. And she asked about the window, I told her it really doesn't exist at my mom's house. She asked if how I woke up, how did I feel? I told her that is didn't scare me I woke up and went back to bed with ease.
She assured me that the storm in my dreams was definitely my future child. And that children do bring change and sometimes it will feel like a tornado. But that my brother represented the calm, strong, caring, quiet leader inside of me that was beginning to emerge with this change. The corner window was very likely two different sides coming together....my motherly side and that crazy side of me (my interpretation). And all the little workers in the field was my unconscience working out all the little details for me. But the best part was that the dream was my mother's house. The house that represented the strong foundation I had be given by her love and example.
I just wanted to share this dream of mine....it was peaceful, hopeful and exciting.
