Dreams and Portents

I don’t normally blog twice in one day any more, but I had this absolutely wretched dream last night and it’s been weighing on me all day. I have no idea what it means or if it means anything at all. I’m lousy at interpretation, really. But I’ll write it down here and maybe I’ll stop thinking about it.

I’m in the house upstairs. It’s night – the kids are in bed, mr myn is home. Maybe we’re sleeping. I just know it’s dark. And then this terrible noise comes screeching out of the sky and I know it’s an airplane. Not like a jetliner, but one of those little private type planes. But I know something’s wrong and it’s going to crash. A second or two later, it does and we go running to the windows. There’s wreckage everywhere and fire burning all through my yard and in the trees. I take one glance and start bawling hysterically.

And then I woke up shaking so bad I actually thought it *had* happened. Took me hours to get back to sleep. *shudders*

I’m sure there’s enough crap going on in my life that I could twist into fitting into the metaphor of a crashing plane, but I’d rather not.

So yeah. Think I’m gonna go crawl back in to my edits for a while and then lose myself in A Dance with Dragons. No airplanes there.

    So. There's this book out called Living Your Dreams  – and it is about understanding the messages your brain is sending you while you sleep. The key to interpreting your dreams lies 100% in you. This is your code system. No one else's. So. Here's how to figure it out. Explain the dream as if you were explaining it to an alien who had no reference for 'airplane' or any of the other symbols in the dream (up to and defining 'home' and the significance of having the hubby home). This is how you decode what you're subconscious is trying to get across. Include all of the emotional stuff – how you felt inside the dream (bawling is an action, not a feeling – you want to get into why you were crying inside the dream) and how it felt upon waking. Yeah, this is labor intensive, but it goes faster than you think. And it makes your brain shut the hell up about it. 😀

    Wow, that is some dream. Espeically since it affected you so deeply. I would not be able to interpret something of that magnitude either. I hope the therapy of your edits help! 🙂

    Wow, that is a terrible dream. No idea what it means, but at least you weren't home alone in the dream. 😉
