Last night I dreamed I was riding on a bus with my boyfriend Hugh Jackman. I felt the need to go for a run so I jumped off the bus and careened down this hill onto a path that led into the woods. Once on the path it went from daylight to darkness. These woods were very creepy looking. I had been here many times before and I remember how frightened I had been each time I arrived at this place.
This time it was different. I wasn’t afraid. I leaned down to pick up a small stuffed animal that was laying on the ground and my surroundings immediately became illuminated. I could see that the forest was still very scary looking but I had no fear. I knew I had been here before and that I always made it through to the daylight again.
On the other side of the forest was a room filled with homeless people. They were listless and stared off into space. I offered them rice crispy treats and they perked up and seemed happy.
When I awoke I immediately knew this dream was a message from my subconscious that “I’ve got this”. I have been here before and I can do this. “This” being the major move I have just made. Yesterday I moved from the Twin Cities where I have lived for the past 30 years to Ashland, WI. In many way’s I’m entering the unknown (dark scary forest). But I have the light within me to see me through to the other side.
I feel the homeless people represent how many of us seem lost right now. The work I do offers sustenance (rice crispy treat) and reminds us of the sweetness of life.
I would love to hear any insights you may have to this dream. Please feel free to share your interpretation with me here.
