It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts. ~K.T. Jong
Today’s dream came from a long time friend of mine. This is the first time she asks me to interpret a dream for her so I was very happily surprised. She asked to remain anon as the dream is of a personal nature, so I have omitted some information without taking away from the dream or it’s interpretation. Note that I received the “background” info AFTER I had interpreted the dream.
The first dream was just before I woke up and there had been a storm that blew in and broke all the trees in half at their mid way point. All the trees were standing in a row. I woke up to say good-bye to my husband and went back to sleep to have another weird dream about my 79, almost 80-year-old neighbour who was over on our property looking at the damage, because the dream continued on as I fell back to sleep. He was standing there and his eyes rolled back and then he fell into our ditch where some ½ bricks were laying. He fell back first, not front first, at the end of the culvert and broke his left arm at the elbow so that his arm was sticking out beside him like it does when you raise your arm to shoulder level and it had dislocated at the elbow to point up instead of down. I didn’t want him to move because he may have broken his back as well, so I ran to call 911 and waited, and waited, and waited. I remember getting really frustrated because they were taking so long and my neighbor is a very determined man, who wanted to get up, but I feared for what he really did. Before the ambulance came, as I was trying to keep him comfortable by putting a blanket on him to keep him warm I woke up. And he was in a short sleeve shirt meaning again the ½ showed up.
There seems to be some anxiety and fear going on about something dear friend. This is what the storm represents, but it is a storm that has passed, so something from the past which is causing you Anxiety or worry? The man in the dream is older, and he represents a side of you (the male side of you who is very determined), also, you were afraid for his back.. Didn’t you have, about 10 years ago, an operation on your back? Is something now worrying you about your back? Is the fact you are getting older scaring you in some way (maybe unconsciously) The ½ in my opinion: Look at what was halved: Trees, brick and arm!!!
The frustration leads me to believe that you are tired of waiting for something in life, like you “just want to get up” but something (maybe fear again or a health issue) is preventing this?
Trees (strong and stands tall, life) bricks (builds things and strong) Arm (can be strong, to hold, to nurture with, to hug with) What do you feel in your life now, that is half than it used to be? Or fear that you are less than you used to be? It sounds more like a fear of some kind.. Left arms in dreams often represent “reaching out” and your supportive feminine nature. Do you feel you are carrying something that does not belong to you? Someone else’s burden maybe?
You (your ego self) was trying to keep your neighbor (your other self) comfortable by wrapping him in a blanket, I see self-love and self-care here! Listen to that intuition that tells you to keep up the self-care and love!
Background and Response
Kim, I think you have it and it all makes sense. Again, last night, a very vivid dream about ½. A cat with a body and no head, yet walking around, so my child put a mask head on him. Shoes, hundreds of them with the souls worn out, toes peaking through, yet only the one shoe and no matched pair and trying to get on top of a huge mess to clean up my house and this stuff kept appearing.
I was in a very abusive marriage a long time ago and my ex called me recently asking me to loan him some money before the bank took away his assets. Yes, he did tell me I was his last resort, but after never paying any support for his children, honestly, I had to take a walk to calm myself down, talk to God, and find the right words to say that I couldn’t do it, without destroying what friendship we managed to salvage for the sake of my children. He had sold his house and was going to pay me back, but I just couldn’t trust that this would ever happen. That was the part of me listening to my instincts.
For many years I felt like a broken human being, trying to make the best of every day, grateful I had a man like my present husband. I thought I had finally made some closure with forgiveness until this happened. My ex’s home is supposed to close soon, so I guess subconsciously, my mind was still worried about where his life is going to go from here and I did marry this man because I loved him, and a part of me never wants to forget that for the sake of my children because he is their father.
Kim, I was so angry with him having the nerve to ever call me after abusing me, cheating on me, being a horrible father to all of his kids it stirred up all those feelings. But honestly, that was the end of last month. I still worry about him. and my instincts told me he was laying the biggest guilt trip on me to try to get me to give him the money. I called my ex back and told him I was not in a position to help this time after going over my finances.
I guess my Anxiety was about the past and the future of my ex husband. The fear is what I felt living with him.
Thanks so much.
