A Dream, Part 2, Interpretation

A few weeks ago I met a sweet young woman because our little girls are in the same Sunday school class. She hardly knows me, we're still learning about each other, but she sent me an "interpretation" of my dream, and I sat with my mouth dropped open as I read it. It fits me perfectly. I emphasized in bold what stood out to me, and someday soon I hope to write about the big changes in my life that are coming up...the ones I feel so responsible for.

Dreams are usually representative of things your mind is trying to process in real life. Since we don't really know each other at all, this could go horribly wrong...but here goes!

The car would symbolize you striving for your goal, on a path, heading in the right direction? You most likely have some sort of change coming up. I would venture to say it has to do with your children. Your oldest is Kindergarten age, right? But, it is more than just [a child being school aged] have more of a feeling of being solely responsible for the change. Interesting that you are in the back seat of the vehicle...meaning you feel slightly out of control.

Women in your dream could point to the emotional side of you or since women are better at communication, you are needing to talk about this change. I would think the latter is more true, since you say that the conversation was idle, of no importance. You really need the deep conversation.

The first scene, could be before the change, you see the "simplicity" (with 3 kids...hmmm), of your life. The flood scene does not really need to mean death, more just a feeling of being overwhelmed. You make it out of the car, you do this calmly. Interesting also that you focused on the roots! Could mean looking at what really matters, what is solid, foundational. You grabbed hold and were saved. I think at this point, you made a decision and felt at peace.

The following scenes are just different scenarios of the same loop of thought. Feeling at peace with a decision, but then being overwhelmed by the thought of it or second guessing yourself.

Thank you, Lajoie. The few friends who know what's coming up for me are now sitting with their mouths open, too!
