Oh, Ms. Las Vegas?? I hadda dream...

  1. This is kinda long.
    I was in dark, deserted city streets. I was trying to get away from my first husband (now dead). I thought I need my car, but if I go there, he'll get me for sure, so I'll go around the block first and see if I can double back to the car. I was scared, and I couldn't double back because he was getting too close. So I just ran....eventually I was lost and he was closing fast.

    For some reason, I pulled out my wallet. Well, it was my wallet that I use now, with all my ID and everything in there right down to the raggedy walmart receipts that I can't seem to throw away.

    But I didn't have time to wonder anything, he was so close and I was almost exhausted. I saw a big building at the top of a hill and I knew it was the hospital and I thought, if I can just get up there, where there are people, I'll be safe.

    So I crossed the driveway and started up the hill, scared, thinking I might not make it all the way.

    I hadn't taken two steps up the hill when suddenly a bunch of children appeared out of the bushes on the side of the drive (still pitch dark outside except for the hospital lights) and one yelled, "Hey, it's the Scripture Lady!!" and then the ex-husband literally stopped in his tracks and I knew he couldn't follow, & I was safe. I joined the kids, and started telling them Bible stories, and then I woke up....

    What do you make of it?

    I was really struck by the fact that I had my own wallet in this dream, and it had my nursing license in it as well as my other ID. And that the kids knew me as "the Scripture Lady" and I've never been called that before. (When I lived up in the mountains they called me the "Bread Lady" but not the "Scripture Lady")

    WOW Sleepyeyes, that is a doozy of a dream. Does Miss Vegas have amazing dream interpretation powers? I'll have to remember that. I myself am no good at it.

    I'd like to hear her take on it too!

    gosh, you guys are makin' me blush :d
    i have to admit, i'm not my usual sparkling self right now, still worried about emma but, i'll take a preliminary stab at this - currently at work so i don't have one book that i need, but i'll come back later to fill in the gaps...

    here's the highpoints of focus - dark city streets, hospital, children, the person chasing you.

    first, you'll have to think about why it's your ex-husband chasing you in the dream - what does he represent? remember, the people who are causing us harm (strange how it's always family or people who used to be family) are reflections of ourselves. it's usually because there is something about us or in us that it causing conflicting feelings that need to be resolved.

    hospitals represent safety. although, for nurses it may represent more of a grander sense of security - afterall, that's where we make our income.

    children represent our pure selves, our innocence, our naked self.

    on the surface, i would say this dream is confirming something you may already know - your sense of self and spirituality, you're walk with god, so to speak, is coming into it's full fruition. perhaps the importance of knowing god's word, the scriptures, is how you have come to knowing your spiritual self.
    "....i was lost, but now i'm found..." comes to mind. further, in your dream, the hospital may represent heaven or your feeling of achieving spiritual fulfillment. it's my guess or suspicion, that your ex-husband hampered your growth in this aspect of your life, and now you feel you have found the tools to overcome past obstacles.

    this dream, is one of celebration and confirmation. anytime we are able to get away from that which is causing us fear means that we have comes to a decision, reached a milestone, or have overcome that which has hampered us in some way. the key is to recognize what your subconscious is telling you to celebrate!

    Oh yeah - the wallet. Notice how our wallets carry so much about who we are in them? Where we live, where we shop (old receipts) pictures of people we know, etc.
    I think the reason you pulled out your wallet while he was chasing you was to confirm who you really are. It's almost like taking account for yourself, "I am Sleepyeyes, that's who I am, I am ME!" and off you went. The wallet confirmed your identity.

    Just think how you would of felt if you did not recognize any of the contents of that wallet! But, no, it was your's, it was you.

    Ha! No, I think some of us have extremely active and creative subconscious minds. I have never had a "normal" dream.
    In fact, I'd be a little afraid to have someone see what goes on in my subconscious mind.. :imbar

    Actually, LV, my first hubby was my ex for a number of years, and then he died. The thing that was chasing me was only partly him; there was some demonic aspect to him (like maybe Death?) that was what originally frightened me.

    I feel comfortable with that interpretation, and thanks for taking the time!

    No problem! Hmm, yes, you'll really need to think about what he represented to you in the dream - remember, people chasing us usually represent something in ourselves.

    Thanks, l.rae! I never thought of it as a gift, moreso just a fascination. My grandmother and her sisters took dreams very seriously. Just sitting around listening to them talk and "interpret" things was interesting. I started really dabbling in dreams and their meanings back in college and didn't do much again with it until recently. I found an old tattered up dream book at Goodwill years ago that I find is in sync with a lot of stuff I heard growing up. There are two new one's that I like to use for reference. I'll pm the names and publishers...
