A symbolic dream
I had a dream the other night...
I was a man, walking down a deserted old country road. It was winter time and the road didn't have any homes, nor lights. I do remember that it was a full moon, because I noticed how the moon lit up the road, and that the ice glistened on parts of the road, that had once melted in the sunlight on a warm winters day. The shadows cast from the moon; glowed blue, on parts of the snow, as the light from the moon hit it just right. It was beautiful really....
I walked, and walk, for what seemed for hours. Hours and hours, although it was just a dream it seemed so long, within my subconscious mind. I heard small sounds of crackling from the old trees gently moving in the cold. It's funny, the smallest of things can be noticed.
Suddenly I heard a vehicle off in the distance, ahead of me up the road. I began to see headlights. I couldn't make out quite what it was. "What is that?" I asked under my breath but, loud enough I could hear myself.
As it approached; I squinted a little, to see what it was. Just than I remembered I was wearing all black and had a shiny light reflector attached to an old key chain. I quickly pulled it out and pointed it towards the light source and waved it around a few times. I was hoping they would notice and not drive too fast and run me over. I was started to make out the frame of a car, it slowed down.
As the car came closer and slower I was starting to notice something familiar and that I knew the driver. I looked in the drivers side window and was about to talk and they were about to say something too....
But than I awoke! So I wake up, confused, stunned, and wondering what could have woke me up so suddenly. No alarm was on at the time. I wasn't too hot, nor too cold. I just woke up.
My take on this dream?
Maybe I feel like I am wandering aimlessly, maybe I'm feeling a little lost in life and not sure where to start or go right now. Maybe the person I felt familiar with as a driver, is someone I feel I need to ask for help?
When I try to understand a dream, weather it is mine or someone else's I also try to get every detail that stands out most. Everything that is noticed, if there is a question asked in the dream or even about the dream I try my best to dig as deep as I can into the dream to try to bring it out in the open for the conscious mind to understand and relate to.
