What Insights Might Someone from Our Past Offer or Represent to Our Future?

Sneaking this dream blog in on the final day of this month. Anyone else notice how many things need to be addressed on any given day, and how incredibly fast the months get torn off the calendar? That’s why I love dreaming. It’s my time exclusively just for me.

My teachers shared that when we dream of people, especially people who have crossed-over, that it doesn’t necessarily mean that we are being visited by them. There is a good possibility that they are being remembered as a representation of  ‘that personality’ to impart some information to us, that our Higher self is trying to get through to our waking self. Seeing someone who has passed over is not to instill fear. It does not mean someone  close to us is going to die; it is to bring awareness of something coming. When we are prepared with awareness, we can make alternative choices.

There is an interconnectedness within the Universe, whether we are on this side or in another dimension, whether we are in body or in spirit; and whether we are awake or dreaming. The mystical connection that ties it all together is the essences that we are One. But that’s a much bigger discussion.

It is true, and many will tell you, that there can be communication from someone who is no longer in the physical world.  They can come through into our dreamtime, and many mediums will tell you, that they can come through to speak if needed. But that said, in this person’s dream, this is not someone that she was actually attached to in any detailed way, like a family member, best friend, or lover.  It is more likely that his presence represents a different aspect or alternative way to create a change in this dreamer’s thinking around something as yet defined.

The Dream:
In my dream, the younger son of my neighbor when I was young, Michael, appeared looking quite healthy and tanned (his mother was Italian so he always was a little darker skinned). Michael passed from a heart attack 5 years ago at the age of 54 years.
Though facially it was not exactly how I remembered him, in my dream it was him. He said he was here for a visit. But he had a large gash on his head that at first he was stitching himself but then one of my daughters (can’t remember which one, and in this dream they were younger) began stitching his wound. I asked him how long he was going to visit and he said he didn’t know. End of dream.

I asked the dreamer what was one word she would use to describe Michael (cute) and the name of her two daughters: Allyson and Christina

In my dream, the younger son of my neighbor when I was young, Michael, appeared looking quite healthy and tanned (his mother was Italian so he always was a little darker skinned). 

The dreamer defines this presence as the ‘younger son’, of her neighbor, which could suggest that there is information that the dreamer needs to assess, that she has held since childhood.  He is ‘cute’ which means this idea or event will be gentle with her, as it comes into her consciousness. However, this information is currently outside her day-to-day thought process, implied by being a neighbor. Possibly this dream is trying to show her something from her younger years that needs to morph or change for a greater understanding of something coming (be that a belief, solving a personal conflict, or deeper awareness of an imminent  change.)

The young boy from her youth is called Michael.  Michael means “he of God” and is also the Archangel of Protection. He appears healthy and darker skinned, implying he is separate or different from her. With respect, what questions does this dreamer have around God? What might challenge her belief in her God? Has she relied on a certain belief of God for protection; a younger belief (not a naïve belief) that protects her. She will be protected, even if these ruminations challenge her and make her experience “a change of heart” or feel like an ‘attack’ to her beliefs.

Counter intuitively he looks healthy, and yet in the next segment of her dream, he is not. Is something she perceived as healthy for her or in order, about to change?

Michael passed from a heart attack 5 years ago at the age of 54 years.

Looking at numbers in dreams are always important. The number 5 on the Wisdom Wheels signifies needing to listen to oneself and allows for a more defined ‘truth’ around an issue or belief,  that can take you to new levels of understanding around an upcoming event. Couple that with Michael passing at 54. Around the age of 54 we hit our Uranus return, astrologically this is seen as the time we call “the mid-life” crisis. So this new awareness or event might feel critical at first, and it certainly will point the dreamer in a new direction, but that doesn’t have to suggest something bad. Plus if you add 5+4, the resulting number is 9. Nine’s are endings of the old, but not as a death, more as a preparation for a new beginning, without forgetting all we’ve learned from our past, as we evolve on our personal time line.

Though facially it was not exactly how I remembered him, in my dream it was him.

What ever awareness is coming, will not on the face of it be obvious, but down the line, the dreamer will realize it was the catalyst.

He said he was here for a visit. But he had a large gash on his head that at first he was stitching himself but then one of my daughters (can’t remember which one, and in this dream they were younger) began stitching his wound. 

A visit is a gentle reminder that something is coming into your awareness. Again please do not hear that this is negative or detrimental, it merely means awareness or change is coming.

There is a large gash on his head, which indicates the dreamer might fear she will fail at something when the time comes for her to think about it, or rethink her feelings about it. Wounds generally indicate suffering a disappointment; someone coming at us or our thought processes (because it’s on the head) aggressively; or an injustice, perceived or real.

He is stitching (trying to pull the information together) the gash himself, meaning you will need to deal with this on your own. But then one of your daughters helps him (maybe could help you) with this. Allyson in old German and French means ‘noble sort,’ and Christina from the Greek means “follower of Christ” or “Christian.” My sense is that which will pull you through this challenge, event, or new awareness will be your faith. That your faith, your belief in the God that you have held sense you were young, even if what occurs challenges you to broaden, widen, or change that belief, will somehow upgrade what initially appears as a wound into a personal evolution.  

I asked him how long he was going to visit and he said he didn’t know. End of Dream.

When will this happen? How long will it take? This you do not yet know, it depends on something that hasn’t presented itself as yet.  I want to stress, I do not see this as necessarily a difficult or harmful thing that happens to you. I think it is more a challenge to a way of thinking, or changing a repetitive pattern, that will be happening “for you.”

Thank you dreamer for sharing.
