Our last class was prompted in part, I guess, by my constant emails to Steve asking him to interpret my dreams for me. The last one was a day or two prior to our class, so he asked if he could use my email of two dreams as an example. Heck yeah, I am all about that. So here is one of my dreams that I sent Steve:
I had this very REAL dream where I was shopping in an outdoor area and a psychic approached me desperately and told me I was very sick and needed to pay attention to my health--something about my heart--and handed me some papers. She hurried me off to this doctor in a white lab coat who walked me to a house that I guess was mine.
Once in, I looked at the papers she had given me. They said I would die when I was 73 of a broken heart and that I had lived 700 years over prior lives, yet that was a very short time. (I knew I wasn't supposed to have seen that part of the papers.)
So I don't know about you, but I thought this was an awful dream. A scary dream. A dream that could not have anything good come from it. Boy was I wrong...
The interpretation follows in the black:
I had this very REAL dream where I was shopping in an outdoor area (outdoor=freedom, no boundaries, nature) and a psychic approached me desperately and told me I was very sick and needed to pay attention to my health--something about my heart--(I am desperately trying to understand and know what's ahead for me. My heart is ready to "heal" and has been aching over changes I have been going through recently.) and handed me some papers. She hurried me off to this doctor in a white lab coat (A doctor represents healing. The white coat is about purity/spirit.) who walked me to a house that I guess was mine. (A house can represent where you live, your body. I didn't recognize this "new me, this home", but knew it was right for me.)
Once in, I looked at the papers she had given me. (Papers can represent fact or authority.) They said I would die (Death here means to be born anew in understanding and awareness.) when I was 73 (The numbers 7 and 3 both have meaning and then you add together to get a single digit, which is 1 and it has meaning, too. The 7 deals with the activation of imagination, and manifesting results in our lives through the use of conscious thought and awareness. 3 symbolizes the need to express myself creatively, or consider my present directional path in relation to my past events and future goals. And the 1 reflects new beginnings and purity.) of a broken heart (It is hard to move on, but the heart can be broken and come out new.) (So maybe I will be born anew when I finally let my creativity and desire for a new place in life lead me instead of the fear and uncertainty I have been letting take hold.) and that I had lived 700 years (The 7 again....) over prior lives, yet that was a very short time. (This change is happening quickly for me.) I knew I wasn't supposed to have seen that part of the papers. (I keep denying the changes and think somehow I shouldn't be changing or it is my fear of changing.)
I felt very scared/flustered when I woke up because it seemed so real. (The fear I felt upon waking was real, because I have been fearful of all the change in my life right now.)
Right on the money is all I can say. I am going through so many life changes with this class, my new business, my new home in North Carolina, my dad's death. So many changes. But Steve said the dream was a GREAT sign.
So how do you get to these interpretations for your own dreams? Easy. Break the dreams down into bits like I did. Everything in dreams can have real meaning and symbolic meaning. Does my dream mean I will die at age 73? Maybe. But it could also be a symbolic death as well.
So if you dream of your pet cat and you are trying to save it from a swimming pool. Consider what
that pets symbolizes to you. What's the first thing that comes to mind? For me, my cat is my baby. So cat=baby=the child in me. Take each element in your dream and find the meaning for you personally. After all it is your inner child that is communicating with you and that part always communicates in pictures/symbols. So a cat to one person might mean different things to another in their dreams.
Now when it comes to numbers and colors, go online and see some definitions. They usually are pretty much the same for everyone. Here is a good link for numbers. And here is one for colors.
(Just scroll down to get to the color chart.)
You can also get Steve's book, that is referenced on our book list, as it has this information in it, too.
So the rest of the class was all about dreams and interpreting them. We practiced with each other, learned a lot more and it was very, very cool. 'Cause I don't know about you, but I almost always remember my dreams and they are doozies! And now, I know how to make some sense out of them and it's opened a great communication pathway now between my waking self and my unconscious.
Now THAT is what I call a healing journey.
