Dreams can be a helpful tool to help us find insights into the hidden parts of ourselves. Not every dream has an important message. Some dreams are garbage dreams. Our unconscious mind may simply be processing and releasing the events of the day. Some dreams are prophetic. These dreams feel different than ordinary dreams. They tell us about something that is happening on the astral plane, which may manifest on the physical plane soon. Some dreams are visitations from loved ones who have crossed over. These ones are reminders that even though a loved one has departed, they are still with us. Whatever kind of dream you may be having, they can be a useful means for understanding ourselves more completely.
Recently I had a dream I was working for a company, and as a gift for my service, they bought me a pink pair of hiking boots. For some reason, people were moving out, and they accidentally picked up my boots and put them into their moving truck. I was frantic to get them back. When I asked to get the boots back they were buried so deeply in the moving truck they couldn’t get to them. Eventually, I did get the boots back, but someone had planted flowers in them. I remember feeling upset by this, and then I woke up.
This dream stood out because the hiking boots were pink, and they played such a significant role in the dream. Pink to me stands for unconditional love and self-acceptance. We wear boots on our feet, and they help us walk comfortably on the Earth. You could say that in this dream, the boots symbolize my connection to the Earth and my relationship to myself. For awhile in the dream, I lost the boots. Was the dream telling me that I have lost my connection to the Earth and therefore myself? Later in the dream, the boots are returned to me, but there are flowers planted in them. I clearly didn’t understand that the flowers were another gift. Flowers can represent many things. For example, it could mean new growth. Or, they could be telling me to stop and smell the roses. My interpretation of the flowers planted in the boots is this. I am slowly beginning to love and accept myself more every day (being gifted the pink boots). I’m just not always able to appreciate myself as much as I could (not understanding the gift of the flower). So the dream is telling me I am making progress in the self-love department, but I don’t always see it.
