Two weeks ago I had a dream. I woke up after having it in the early morning, therefore it is considered a waking dream. Charles Filmore, Unity’s (unity.org) cofounder believed in the messages of waking dreams. Theoretically, your first dreams when you go to sleep are those that help you work out and let go of events from that day.
In the dream, I was the tractor that was pulling the trailer of a semi truck. I was driving in the wrong direction, however. All the traffic had stopped on the highway and was waiting for me to turn around. They were patient. I saw a person in a night shirt that represented each car. Once I got turned around, I was then pulling the truck up a flight of stairs and then I awoke.
It was a pretty vivid message just like the picture that I selected above. My initial feeling and thought was that I’m trying overcome the current challenges mostly by myself, once again. The cars on the highway, which represent those on the path of life with you, were supporting me as I turned my life around. The trailer obviously was the weight and baggage of my current challenge. The next part of the dream when I was pulling it up the stairs, I was making life more of a struggle than it needs to be. Stairs represent “one’s ascent or descent in relation to one’s life preogression or advancement.”1 I had gotten caught up on the gerbil wheel going around and around and forgetting to trust and have faith in God.
Many people have and continue to be there to support me with their unconditional love, patience and abundance. They have employed me, written me letters of reference and most of all just listened and accepted me for who I am with the gifts and talents that I have come to earth to give. Having compassion for oneself is not easy. Today as I get over yet another cold from the stress I created, I am choosing to have compassion for myself. I know I am doing the best that I can.
Dreams have messages that are simple yet profound. It is Spirit’s way of getting your attention. As you interpret them, the key is how they felt to you and what resonates with in you. It’s helpful to keep a journal that you write them in. I incorporate them into the regular journal that I write in when I have something I want to remember.
Remember to have compassion with yourself in whatever is happening in your life. When you surrender and let Spirit give you the next step, It knows the how, things will shift for the better in your life. Relax and have faith. Amen
