Dream 3: Occurred about 4 days ago
(this was a dream from which I never wanted to wake)
It was just before dusk. I could still see light on the horizon and I could see clearly everything around me, but the air was tinted blue–a beautiful, rich, cobalt blue. I was with a man (not the maintenance man you smarty pants). I never saw his face but I could sense that he wasn’t a heavenly being nor was he a husband. He never spoke but I remember feeling incredibly calm, safe, peaceful, comfortable, and content with him. He led me down a path through a lush garden to a house built on the side of a mountain above the ocean’s shore. The water spread wide before me, colored indigo like the air. We went into the house, a simple house, beachy and cottage-like in its furnishings. There were simple white pillars in the entry way and a wall of windows along the west wall in the living room. Gauzy white curtains framed the ocean sunset before us, but again, the sky wasn’t fiery, it was a deep, rich, blue. We walked through the living room into the kitchen. The sink was situated under another window and to the left of the sink was a shelf on the wall with hand-painted plates and bowls. We began taking plates down from the shelf and putting them on the table. Though there was no food (that I could see), I knew we were setting the table for a meal.
That’s when I woke up, and all I felt was sadness at no longer being there, at the house, by the ocean, in the blue, with him. I tried and tried to go back to sleep and pick up where I left off, but could never fall back into it. The feeling in the dream was so … perfect. I had no cares, no worries, no fears. I felt so peacefully happy. And safe. All I wanted was to stay there in my dream.
I’m still trying to put these 3 dreams together and come up with something legitimate to learn from them. Perhaps once I haven’t something substantive, I’ll post it here. In the meantime, it’s nice to remember this dream again. I can close my eyes and still see it, and almost feel it. And I suppose if this is the dream on which I end my current dream-streak, it was well worth kissing the maintenance man and stepping over a severed horse to get to it.
Here are the dream site’s interpretations:
To see an ocean in your dream, represents the state of your emotions and feelings. It is indicative of some spiritual refreshment, tranquility and renewal.
Blue represents truth, wisdom, heaven, eternity, devotion, tranquility, loyalty and openness. Perhaps you are expressing a desire to get away. The presence of this color in your dream, may symbolize your spiritual guide and your optimism of the future. You have clarity of mind.
To see a house in your dream, represents your own soul and self. Specific rooms in the house indicate a specific aspect of your psyche. In general, the attic represents your intellect, the basement represents the unconscious, etc.
White represents purity, perfection, peace, innocence, dignity, cleanliness, awareness, and new beginnings. You may be experiencing a reawakening or have a fresh outlook on life.
To see a pillar in your dream, represents your firm stance especially in the face of adversity. It symbolizes stability and strength. The dream may serve as reassurance that those around you support you no matter what you do. As we most elongate objects, a pillar may also have phallic connotations.
To dream that you are in the living room, represents the image that you portray to others and the way which you go about your life. It is representative of your basic beliefs about yourself and who you are.
To see windows in your dream, signifies bright hopes, vast possibilities and insight. To dream that you are looking out the window, signifies your outlook on life, your consciousness, point of view, awareness, and intuition. You may be reflecting on a decision and seeking guidance. Or you need to go out into the larger world and experience life. If you are looking in the window, then it indicates that you are doing some soul searching and looking within yourself.
To see a kitchen in your dream, signifies your need for warmth and spiritual nourishment. It may also be symbolic of the nurturing mother or the way that you are caring for your loved ones. Alternatively the kitchen, represents a transformation.
To see dishes in your dream, represents ideas, concepts, and attitudes. The dream may be a pun on the things you are “dishing” out to others. Or it could describe someone you are interested in as in someone who is a “dish”. Perhaps it is time that you make the first move.
