After reading about me kissing the maintenance man in Part 1 of my dream series, you probably all needed a cold shower (I mean it was SO steamy) so I know you’re on pins and needles for Part 2. Well, just so you know … Part 2 is not at all, in the least bit, in any way, shape or form something to get all hot and bothered about. It’s actually a leetle bit morbid. And definitely the weirdest of the 3 dreams I had. Yeah, I don’t really know what to say about it so without further adieu …
Dream 2: Occurred about 4 days ago
(remember you’ve been forewarned … this is a titch morbid)
The dream was set at home in South Carolina. I was at our neighbor’s house. Now we certainly like them as far as neighbors go, but we’re not really friends that visit each others’ homes, and I haven’t seen them in years, so it was very odd that I was at their house to begin with. But in the dream it all seemed very normal. Anyway, I got to the doorstep and lying across the threshold was half of a dead horse. It was very graphic and vivid but I don’t remember thinking that this was at all odd in my dream. I just stepped over it and went into the house. I found myself in the kitchen where, on the kitchen table, was the other half of the dead horse (I told you it was weird). Jeannie (our neighbor) led me into her living room to show my her ceramic Christmas village she’d set up for the holidays. It spanned the whole wall and I looked at each house and shop she’d set up until I reached the end of the wall where the fireplace was located, at which point I, all of a sudden, had a paintbrush in my hand and began painting their fireplace with gold paint. At which point I woke up.
Weird. I know.
So here’s what the dream interpretation site said:
To see a horse in your dream, symbolizes strength, power, endurance, virility and sexual prowess (what the heck?!). It also represents a strong, physical energy. You need to tame the wild forces. If you see a dead horse in your dream, then it indicates that something in your life that initially offered you strength is now gone. This may refer to a relationship or situation.
To dream of Christmas, symbolizes family togetherness, reunions, celebration, peace, goodwill, generosity, and human kindness. It is also representative of new beginnings and fresh starts. Consider also your own associations with this holiday.
To see an unlit fireplace, is indicative of low energy, disinterest, or disheartenment.
To dream that you are painting your house, signifies that you will find much success in a new project or that you will be promoted to a coveted position. You may be expressing your creativity. Alternatively, it may indicate that you are covering up something. To see or use a paintbrush in your dream, symbolizes harmony, creativity and artistic talents. To see paint in your dream, symbolizes expression of your inner emotions. Consider the color of the paint and how the color makes your feel. It is this feeling that you need to express more in your waking life.
To see gold in your dream, symbolizes wealth, riches, natural healing, illumination and/or spirituality. The golden color reflects your spiritual rewards, richness, refinement and enhancement of your surroundings.
Upon telling Frit about this dream, she asked if I had been sneaking episodes of Law & Order behind her back. Cuz see, she has imposed a rule in our house that I’m not allowed to watch those types of shows because I eventually wind up freaking myself out after it’s over. Whatever. And just so you know … I have NOT been sneaking episodes of Law & Order or NCIS or CSI or TGIF or RHU or SLJF or WLA or any of the other million acronym-named crime shows. My brain just came up with a severed horse on its own! Who needs the TV with a brain like this?!
Anyhow, that’s dream 2. Still don’t know what to make of it all.
Mostly I’m just thinking no more Mike and Ikes after 7 p.m. Any thoughts?
