Not too long ago, I was experiencing an episode of greater than usual stress. I had so many things I needed to do that it seemed I might not get everything done! (Some of us live in this state almost all the time.)
One night I had the most interesting dream. I dreamt that I was near the ocean during a tsunami. I saw the big wave coming toward me and I did the only thing I could think of doing. I laid down in the road and let the wave take me with it. As the water began to recede, I was swept close to a fence and was able to grab onto the fence and wrap my arms and legs tightly around it. There I clung as the waves came and went several times.
Finally the waters calmed and I was able to walk up the road into a nearby town. There I entered a café, soaking wet and filled to the brim with my recent experience.
Inside the café I excitedly began telling people about my survival. Oddly enough, the people in the restaurant displayed no interest whatsoever in what I had to relate.
After I woke from the dream, I puzzled for a while over the possible meanings of such an unusual (for me) dream. Finally I decided that my subconscious was telling me that life is tough, hang on and you will get through, and sometimes we have to face our problems on our own!
What do you think? Have you ever had a dream that you felt was sending a message to your conscious self?
