what does it mean when:
- you dream of spending a day taking care of a sheep?
A sheep that looked more like a brindle-coloured pit bull – but was definitely a sheep – or really more of a lamb.
It seemed this lamb wasn’t going to have much of a future (perhaps blind, disabled?) and somehow it was at my workplace (which looked nothing like my real one). I spent a lot of my time carrying it around – left arm holding it close.
Having left work at the end of the day, I felt the need to go back and check on it. I unlocked a heavy wooden exterior door, and discovered I couldn’t re-lock it from the inside. This caused a little concern, but I continued, entered the office, and the lamb came running toward me.
I checked it was fed and watered and had a cosy place to sleep – then – either the dream or my memory of it, faded away.
- some things are not what they seem
- the need to care overcomes fear
- what is opened cannot be closed
Thinking about dreams…
What does it mean when you meet someone in a dream, you learn their name, their job, develop friendship. They are interested in who you are, they look at your writing.
They asked me a question I can’t remember fully – but I know it was a challenge of sorts – “so if you have this Scottish heritage why are you still writing …?” I can’t remember the rest of their question, but I know I countered with “…and the Irish”. We were looking at handwritten text and in the dream I could read it – but have no idea now what was written.
We sit looking at the dark sky filled with multiple crescent moons and stars and I say, “on nights like this I can’t imagine there being anywhere better – but maybe its time to leave…” and we agree to move away.
It really is like living another life…
Preparing for February – finding and maintaining balance will be important as I settle back into work.
seek balance between earth and sky, light and shade, warm and cool – soar on the updrafts toward your dreams
Just a note – one or two friends checked in with me recently and I told them – don’t worry – I’m fine. It’s true that I hadn’t been feeling that great for a while at the start of this year. I went quiet for a while and then posted a couple of dark pieces. I go into the dark sometimes – but I’ve learnt to trust myself to re-emerge. I’m not afraid of the dark – and I like to think – the dark – that’s where the seeds start to grow.
Take care everyone – hoping the next month is good to you xx.
