Wake Up Slow…

Dreams..

They are too random to not mean anything.
Twice I have had a dream about being pregnant and worried about the fetus slipping out.  I wake up with my legs clenched together.  What the heck is that supposed to mean? I’ve had dreams about being pregnant my whole life, even when I was a kid, but nothing like this.

The first one was last week and I was supposed to be the surrogate to my brother and his girlfriend.  I was carrying their baby but I was worried about the baby coming out too soon.

That same night, I dreamt Micheal had disappeared and I couldn’t find him anywhere.  There were two black limos that pulled up to our one-room house. They dropped off a really scary prisoner and tried to convince me this was Micheal.  Some lady who reminded me of Lara Croft Tomb Raider came to save me from the scary prisoner.  Somehow I thought this was Micheal reincarnate.  She felt a lot like him in her presence.  Which, honestly, is quite humorous in my waking life.  The scary prisoner was loosing his hair and was really greasy and had human teeth for finger nails.

I woke up freaking out to Micheal and scared he had gone away.  I told him about the dream and he told me he had a dream about black limos.  Weird.  I can’t tell you how often we have the same dreams in the same night or at least common threads in our dreams.  What is that about?

This morning, I had dreamt that I was pregnant but I didn’t believe I was pregnant.  I was concerned because I had drank some wine the night before (and in my waking life, I actually did) and I was worried the baby would have Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.  Again, I was concerned the baby wasn’t coming out the normal way of water breaking and contractions.  I was ready to be induced but my belly looked like I was only three months pregnant but I had all of the stretch marks.  The doctor was trying to decide to if he should induce me first or perform the knee surgery I needed.  Much of the dream was back and forth about which I should do first.

Phew.

Naturally, I looked up the symbology of surgery, pregnancy, & knees.

Pregnant

To dream that you are pregnant, symbolizes an aspect of yourself or some aspect of your personal life that is growing and developing. You may not be ready to talk about it or act on it. Being pregnant in your dream may also represent the birth of a new idea, direction, project or goal. Alternatively, if you are trying to get pregnant, then the dream may be a wish fulfillment. If you are not trying to get pregnant, but dream that you are, then it symbolizes fear of new responsibilities. 

To dream that you are pregnant with the baby dying inside of you, suggests that a project you had put a lot of effort into is falling apart and slowly deteriorating. Nothing is working out the way you had anticipated. 

If you are really pregnant and have this dream, then it represents your anxieties about the pregnancy. If you are in your first  trimester of pregnancy, then your dreams tend to be about tiny creatures, fuzzy animals, flowers, fruit and water. In the second trimester, dreams will reflect anxieties about being a good mother and concerns about possible complications with the birth. Dreams of giving birth to a non-human baby are also common during this period of the pregnancy. Finally, in the third trimester, dreams consists of your own mother. As your body changes and grows, dreams of whales, elephants and dinosaurs and other larger animals may also start appearing at this stage of pregnancy.

Knee 
To dream of your knees, symbolize a level of support you may be receiving. It also indicates that you are feeling very emotional. Feelings of inadequacy and issues of power/control also come into play. You may have more than you can handle.

Surgery 
To dream that you or someone else is undergoing surgery, signifies the opening of the Self and/or the need for emotional healing. You need to “cut out” or eliminate something from your life. Alternatively, a surgery suggests that you are feeling the influence of some authority figure. You are being swayed to act and behave a certain way. A more literal interpretation of this dream may reflect your concerns about upcoming surgery or about your health.

I’m not sure what it all really means. What do you think?

Dreams keep some people from sleeping.  Dreams inspire people to invent or create.  Dreams can be windows to other dimensions of our psyche.  But, can someone else penetrate your dreams?

I used to see a dream therapist who would help dissect my crazy awesome, vivid dreams.    I learned so much from him about many different aspects of my life.  He would always say, everything in your dream is you.  Each person, animal, symbol, creature, feeling, etc etc–is you.  So find out what that means you to and that is the first step to seeing your dream in a different light.

Well–last night (which I just woke up from less than an hour ago), was a real doosey.  Once again, I pose the question, do you think other people can penetrate your dreams? When I said this to Micheal this morning, he said “don’t say things like that, it’s scary.” I couldn’t agree more!

I’ve done some investigating about energies not of this plane, and one thing I have found to be very helpful is affirming “if you do not have legs, you are not welcome here!” I know, it sounds strange and weird.  But think about it, those “energies” that are not grounded are not welcome.  In fact, people who are not grounded are not welcome.  What is grounded? That feeling of being rooted in something: in your life, in this life. I feel it’s a benchmark,  a baseline–somewhere everyone can relate to and then learn to build on.  You must have a foundation.

Ok-back to dreams.  In my dream, I felt like someone was trying to get something from me and neither of us knew what it was.  Like I was being chased but no one knew why, not even the chaser. Naturally, I stopped and made it clear in my dream that this feeling was not welcomed. I know who was chasing me and that is what concerns me. People with egos in the spiritual world are dangerous.  But, to what extent?

Honestly, I’m not going to give this much thought.  When I close my laptop, I’m going to get into the shower and start my day of work as usual.  I just find this interesting and worth pondering.  Feel free to leave your thoughts 🙂
