As many of you have noticed, I ghosted my dream blog for these past two months. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been dreaming, but I have been dreaming new starts and old finishes as we are about to enter a new year in just a few months.
That coupled with two big international journeys and some family issues suggested that I take a short hiatus in my dream decoding work. Understanding that much like the dreamtime, that daily time is not linear, it is in fact circular—I’ve circled back.
I chose this particular dream because it appears so uplifting. Given how stressful the last year has been for many people that I know, and many folks that I don’t, I thought uplifting would be a nice re-entry point.
Where everything in the dream is both the dreamer and what it resembles in one’s outer life, this could speak to the sacred marriage of the Self, that Christos-Shekinah energy of personal merging; or a literal marriage or deepening union between two souls. Knowing a bit about this dreamer’s history, I believe it speaks to a deeper outer relationship that needs more formalizing.
Last night I had this dream where I was likely in a church sitting and waiting for an event to start. There were also other people there. I was sitting in one corner with people I don’t know. Then I started to play a recording sent by [XXXX] through a stereo system on my side. He was talking about how I have changed his life since we met and his feelings about me, etc. I was touched. Then he showed up and told me that people around me could hear what he said to me. I turned around and saw a woman in tears because she was touched by it too. Then he showed me a beautiful gown that he prepared for me. I put in on and looked so beautiful. He wore a suit. Then we got married. The end.
Last night I had this dream where I was likely in a church sitting and waiting for an event to start.
Sitting in “a church” setting doesn’t necessarily mean a spiritual event. It can be symbolic of something you really believe or have faith in or deeply desire and haven’t even admitted it to yourself yet. Or perhaps, you have been questioning that belief and need to quiet your mind and contemplate or reflect on what it is you truly do desire.
You are ‘waiting’ for an event to occur. But, what action are you willing to take to make that desire or event become manifest?
There were also other people there. I was sitting in one corner with people I don’t know.
The people represent aspects of yourself. You are in a corner, separate from those parts of yourself that hold more ‘awareness and perspective.” They are present to offer you another perspective if you are willing to listen. It concerns something that you need to reflect on for greater understanding, personal knowledge.
Then I started to play a recording sent by [XXXX-name withheld but it means “God is gracious”] through a stereo system on my side. He was talking about how I have changed his life since we met and his feelings about me, etc. I was touched.
So here the dreamer sits in a contemplative place, and a recording from that person [whose name means “a message or gift from God” comes through to you in stereo. It’s on your side, so metaphorically it might mean this person wants to stand by your side.
Through this communication/the stereo, he tells you feelings he normally has difficulty expressing in his waking state. In the dreamstate it is often a fact that one person can communicate freely to another through their dream connection sequences, to make their feelings known.
You are touched by that this information because you know it is sincere. It could also indicate you have wanted to hear this for some time. That it is in stereo suggests that his feelings are all around you, and possibly you are not picking up on them or even responding in ways that discourage him from being more openly verbal about what he feels.
Then he showed up and told me that people around me could hear what he said to me. I turned around and saw a woman in tears because she was touched by it too.
Then he manifests in front of you further indicating that he is ready to have this discussion in the flesh. Are you? He comes to you, suggesting he is ready to be more committed. Or perhaps he is waiting for you to be open to him having this discussion with you. He wants to announce it to others, as he says “that other people can hear what he said.” Possibly in the waking world others can definitely ‘see how he feels’ about you.
The woman behind you in tears is an aspect of yourself that you keep out of reach, silent, or possibly you too are not fully comfortable expressing your deeper feelings, in the same way he can’t. That part of you is sad because it is likewise having a difficult time openly committing to being more seen in your outer worlds.
Then he showed me a beautiful gown that he prepared for me. I put in on and looked so beautiful. He wore a suit. Then we got married. The end.
When a man and woman come together in love they create a “garment of light” around themselves. He is preparing to share that love with you in ways that are more obvious.
When one dreams of putting on a beautiful gown, or dress, that makes them feel happy, it indicates they are walking down the right path in life. They are willing to cloth themselves in joy and risk loving and being loved.
He does the same by donning a suit. When someone puts on a suit they are defining a different role they wish to take in life. You need to pay attention to the color and structure of the garment. Is it a wedding suit, a business suit, a jumpsuit?
You indicate what it is by what comes next-you two get married. My sense is that you are in a relationship where it is time for the two of you take things to the next level. The hesitation is within both of you, as neither has fully committed in the waking state. What finally needs to be said aloud? And yet it would seem you are both ready as the dream sequence ends in marriage. Marriage takes many forms but a deeper union is ready to be experienced, and to be seen and acknowledged in your day-to-day worlds.
Thank you dreamer for sharing this uplifting dream.
I am in need of fresh dreams as we approach the end of 2019. Should any of you wish to share one you might have, please send them to me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
