My daughter, who has had many health problems in the past, is graduating from college this Saturday and that signifies a fresh start.  I seem to be moving ahead at my work, and everyone I know is progressing.  Perhaps I'm moving toward that light at the end of the tunnel.  I hope so, anyway.


So good to read this!!!

I had a long complex dream the other night but the only thing I can remember clearly from it is that someone handed me several tubes of Tom's of Maine lip balm, which I accepted. How strange! I dare anyone to interpret this one!

Last night I dreamt that I was going back to work at the job I lost 13 years ago.

How funny Jeff, as I just had a dream that I was going back to a teller position.

Well! The past few days--or nights--have been humdingers for odd dreams!

The first night I slept at my dad's house for the holiday weekend, I saw my mother in a dream. In the first place, I very rarely dream about my mother, but the really odd thing about this dream, is that when I do dream about her, I usually don't see her face. She often has her back to me, and I hear her voice, but I don't see her face. What was so odd about this most recent dream is that for a change, I did see her face.

I opened my eyes, and I was conscious of being in bed in the room at my dad's house where I sleep, and Mother was standing there looking down at me. I couldn't make out if she was wearing a housecoat, or if she was wearing the suit we buried her in, but she was standing there looking down at me. She didn't say anything, just looked down at me. I closed my eyes, and she was gone.

Then, just last night, I saw four different classmates from high school. I have no idea why. I haven't seen any of them since graduation--in 1976 :o --and they were not people I was close to in school. But I saw them in a dream last night.  :-\

Hi, Jeff, welcome back! We missed you!

I feel that you have summoned the spirit of your Mom and want to get some kind of answer or advice from her but are not quite ready to hear it yet. Your desire, however, is very strong and you will continue on this nocturnal quest until your mother speaks to you or you find the answer you are looking for. The time period you are looking in is around graduation, your college years and the start of your career. Something happened around that time and perhaps something remains unresolved so in your dreams you are going back to review that time period. Maybe you are mulling over a career change or other change in the direction of your life.

So you feel the dreams are connected? That's interesting--I hadn't thought of that possibility. Thanks!

Certainly they're connected by a common theme: revisiting your past. The fact that you knew you were sleeping and where you were in your dream where you saw your mother's face shows you are developing your lucid dreaming skills and having more of a say in what you will dream. Also, that you were able to look into your mother's face and recognize her shows that you are getting closer to the information you are looking for. Your mother is a metaphor for your deepest, truest self, the self that you had within you as you were just starting out in your adult life, and which abides in you still.

Well, you may be right. I'm more inclined to believe she came for me, as my grandmother and my uncle once came for my father, and then changed her mind and decided it's not yet time for me to die, probably because I need to look after my dad.

I've heard of this belief before, in fact, my mother says she often dreams that her first husband, my father, is coming to get her and usher her to heaven. It is very comforting to know that our loved ones are watching out for us and are able to guide us along a scary path safely. Or, it could be kind of creepy. The way you describe your mother looking down on you in the bed without speaking seems a little ominous to me, but it might be reassuring. I haven't ever had such a dream that I can recall.
