So I guess spirit or my subconscious is trying to get a message to my slow-witted self. The other night I had a dream so filled with symbolism and messages that I straight up asked, in my dream, for them to cease with the cryptic and just blurt it out.
They refused because of course they did.
The next night I had a dreamless night which is very odd for me. Honestly, I felt a bit cheated. Stupid subconscious.
Monday night the dreams returned. Actually a dream returned. Me, sitting in a car stuck in traffic. Which actually ended up happening in real life but that’s not all that happened. The car I was in didn’t move more than a block during the course of the long dream. I did. I got out and wandered off but always returned to the car.
The traffic was in a seaport town that bore a striking resemblance to Kennebunkport Maine but wasn’t.
Didn’t take a weatherman to see which way that wind was blowing. But off to the dream dictionary, and by dream dictionary I mean the internet.
From auntyflo.com: To be waiting in traffic jam in a dream indicates that you may currently be unable to move forward in your life (in a given situation) in a consistent, meaningful way.
Shockingly obvious even to me. Really spirit, that’s it?
Last night I had another dream with one theme. Broken household appliances — washers and dryers, specifically. They were cluttering up the kitchen of my childhood home.
Paging Dr. Freud. Table for unresolved childhood issues.
Back to the internet where I found the following on dreammoods.com:
To see a kitchen in your dream signifies your need for warmth, spiritual nourishment and healing. It may also be symbolic of the nurturing mother or the way that you are for your loved ones. Alternatively the kitchen represents a transformation. Something new or life altering is about to occur. The dream could also be telling you that if “you can’t stand the heat, then you need to get out of the kitchen”. You need to abort your plans.
Well that wasn’t all that helpful now was it. Back to the internet and Auntyflow who tells me:
If the washing machine in your dreams is old or in need of repair then this may reflect that you are in a rut in the way that you interact with others, and you have entrenched habits which need to change.
worldofdreamsymbols.com tells me that dryers mean:
Dreaming of dryer may represent a stage of completion in your life. It suggests the ending of one phase and the beginning of a new one. Further, it can represent a transformation – turning something that was impure or complicated into something unblemished and orderly.
So there we have it boys and girls spirit clawed it’s way into my brain for three nights to basically tell me my life sucks but maybe not.
I feel better already!
