This morning's post was about my dream. I told the chaplain about it and she explained some of it to me. She has taken a few courses in dream interpretation. Most important is to know that dreams are ALWAYS about yourself. I dreamt about someone else, but the dream is about myself. The important items in the dream--we think are:
shrinking to disappearing
the envelope kept for safe keeping
And what I felt during and after the dream. The shrinking shocked me. The head appalled me. I felt good about keeping her safe locked up in the envelope and felt relief when the EMT's came. After the dream I was frightened that we (RCIA team) would get into trouble. I was also very sad that the chaplain had died and we had nothing to prove that she had ever lived. There was no body.
The last emotion I felt (being sad because there was no body) I think is what the dream is all about. Hubby and I, and friends, have been discussing end of life issues. Also, whether we want to be cremated or what.
In fact, someone told me a story just yesterday that her friend unexpectedly died and was cremated, Her husband is keeping her ashes in an urn. The urn sits on the table where he eats, so that he eats with her, like they always did.
The dream is about something that was on my mind. That's all.
