Your head might be in the right place but if your heart is not, then you will be reminded that unity is needed. We can make sense of a lot of issues in our lives, yet we often tend to believe they are out of control. Therefore, we render ourselves incapable of change and become just that. It is our own perception that is the deciding factor and, more often, not the actual reality. If you are shown the light, so to speak, in your dreams, it is because it is time for you to take the torch. In other words, it’s time for a change and time for you to make it.
Dear Dream Retriever: I get the message from the dreams I have had previous to the one I am sending to you. I am always driving down the road and I am going way too fast to read the signs on the side of the road. I have these dreams more often than I would like, and I know they are telling me to slow down.
In the most recent dream I had, I am reading a book and I know the book is about poetry. It is my favorite read and I am sitting in my living room, in my chair where I sit when I am reading. I try to read it but I can’t. I know that there is a message that this book is trying to give me.
I have made serious changes and am aware of my fast-paced lifestyle. I have been mindful, properly for the first time in my life, of overindulging, so I don’t get this. — Stuck, Dracut
Dear Stuck: You are on the right track being mindful of your self-undoing. The part of the interpretation you missed in the dreams previous was, you are missing the signs.
Some aspect of your life has presented an opportunity to you; you’re missing that.
The dream about poetry is not so obvious. The part of the brain that relates to language is not as active at this state. The message wasn’t the poem — it was the inspiration that a poem was supposed to give you. A poet carefully constructs a message by playing on the imagination of the reader.
There is an opportunity you are about to miss that will inspire you and give way to what you are trying achieve.
