An Escape

It is difficult to calm the mind sometimes from overthinking. From the moment we wake up until we go to bed, our minds are constantly going. Did I forget to return that email before I left work last night? I can’t forget to jot this important date on my calendar! Do the kids have any after school activities tomorrow? When will I get married, or meet my soul mate? These are all common conversations that travel through our minds everyday. For some of us, it may be a chronic problem that does not allow us to fully rest up.

The Dream

A few nights ago, I was laying in bed finishing up my daily meditation. Now, usually I fall asleep during my meditations and wake up in the middle of the night to remove my headphones. But this time, I was wide awake and couldn’t fall asleep fast enough. Finally, I did! I dreamt that everyone was climbing fast up the trees trying to get away from this flood that was occurring. This water came up fast, but not in a raging way. When the waters stopped, they seemed to calm down and all that had made it to the top of the trees were looking at eachother in relief and disbelief. The entire land was covered in water. The days passed and passed. We had no food or drinking water and had to make due with what we had. We had all decided to start collecting any debris from the water that would serve purpose.

There on top of the trees we made kitchens, a “nest” to sleep in, yes, just like the birds, we connected wooden planks to each of the tree branches that extended to the tree next to it, to form a connective bridge and so on. This was our life now! How quickly it changed, and how quickly we were forced to adapt. No time to think, just do. Soon after, my dream was over.

Analysis

Flood meaning:

This represents emotional issues and tensions. These are emotions that one may keep repressed and are causing you to feel overwhelmed. It symbolizes growing emotionally and releasing those feelings. But your worries over a specific situation will soon be swept away.

Water:

This represents purity and one’s unconscious itself.

Trees:

This is the symbolic meaning of Life.

Tree Branches:

These are one’s hidden abilities, desires, and aspirations. They symbolize good fortune, growth, and a new life. Branches may also represent the relationship one has between them and their family.

Living on top of the trees:

You want to find out how to protect you and your family from any dangers or misfortunes. Trying to escape the problems of the real world. You’re working hard to realize your hopes and goals. This could also mean, maximizing ones potential.

It’s important to take just a few minutes out of one’s day to quiet the mind and sit still. Even putting headphones on with no sounds, only to block the outside noises will help. Dreams like this one help us realize that we are giving too much time to material things and not enough time to ourselves. Or, it may also be telling us that worrying over “things” is a waste of time. Our lives can change in an instant! So worry about what you can change and don’t worry about what you can’t. Appreciate each and every moment and always give thanks for all that you have been blessed with.

Between the lines

"As writers and dreamers, we may never fit in (what they call) normality. Who cares? You and me, fulfilling old legends, we stay awake in each other’s dreams. We live for ever and a day in each other’s stories. We share memories of things that never happened. You and me. That’s the level of faith given upon our entwined souls!"
