I had a dream last night that some of my friends and I gave my Grandmother a surprise party. While she was away at work we snuck into her house and spent all day cooking dishes that she likes. There were lots of people hanging out there waiting for her, but strangely, they all were my friends, not hers, but she always enjoys when I visit her with my friends. She likes the company and complains that I don't visit her enough.
Anyways, there were people all throughout her house and even hanging out outside too. When she drove up, I watched her expression out the window. She looked confused at seeing all the people but happily confused.
Once inside, there was no startling "Surprise!" or anything like that. We just greeted her and started pampering her. She loved it and I did too.
When it came time to serve her some food, she loved everything except one meat dish. For some reason this made me very concerned and I started hopping around trying to find something she liked instead. She didn't like any of the substitutes I offered her but she was still very gracious. I was disappointed though that I failed to provide any meat dishes that she liked, and this is when I woke up.
My most memorable dream to date. Ever since I've been writing them down and analyzing them. If I have time, or even remember them >_<
I was in a misty type fantasy forest walking with 3 other girls over a bridge. The whole feeling of he place was quite eerie. Anyways, there was a pair of jeans that belonged to one of the girls hanging on a bush. (she was fully clothed) Then she had a pair of mine. For some reason I threw her jeans over the bridge into a lake that had a light mist over it, and she did the same to mine. Then we all came to the end of the bridge which ended abruptly. Just short of land. The only way to get across was to swim. 2 of the other girls jumped in and I followed not thinking twice. When I jumped in...the water was so warm and comfortable. I felt like I could stay in it forever. While I was feeling the warmth of the water. The other girls had gathered something from the land, jumped back in the water. Next thing I know we're all totally submerged, breathing underwater, but they are spooked, and they head back for the bridge asap. I have a delayed reaction looking at something that was coming towards me. It's all blurry til it gets close. (still under the warm water) I see a mermaid. An angry one. I clench my fist as hard as I can and pull back, ready to attack I stare for about 2 seconds into her face. Then I too swim for the bridge as fast as I can. I can feel her following me closely like a shadow. I get up on the bridge and I look over the side. I see her underneath the clear water staring at me through subtle waves with the most peculiar of looks on her face. Like looking in a mirror almost. Then I woke up. Felt real, as most of my dreams do.
I've already analyzed this. In short it seems that the mist in my dream expresses a fear that someone/something in my waking life is not solid enough. The unconscious; anything that's hidden or obscure in my life.
The lake: If the surface is mirror like symbolizes reflection that leads to awareness.
Warm Water: Security, like being in the womb being nourished. The unconscious and emotions. (Like I said, i felt like I could stay in there forever.)
Losing my pants (lol): Refers to feelings of vulnerability.
Lastly..Mermaid: Represents feminine aspects yet to be acknowledged/realized. As a composite creature, she represents the conscious, and unconscious, and our attempt at union; material that has been tamed/humanized (the human upper body), and as yet untamed (unconscious) material (the tail and her relationship to the water)
This precisely related to what my situation was at the time.
You can't always do it right, you can always do what's left.
Thoughts rearrange. Familiar now strange. All my skin is drifting on the wind.~
