Dream interpreter

Last night I was feeling pretty sentimental. After spending the last couple evenings out late with friends who we haven’t seen in awhile I was really looking forward to a night alone with Chad. We had a really wonderful evening and while I said our prayer before bed I became really emotional. I feel so incredibly blessed to have Chad as my husband. I am so grateful we were able to get pregnant after years of me worrying whether it was possible. I can also feel the love I have for Chad growing and expanding to include the little girl we are so blessed to have. We have both been praying a lot that we will be prepared to teach her well and to take care of her. We want to be able to strengthen our relationship so that we can be better parents and do and become all that Heavenly Father desires.

After such a peaceful, tender way to end the day I was unprepared for the chaos my self-conscious was going to drag me through. I woke up after having a very disturbing dream. As I normally do, I woke Chad up and told him I needed his help to forget it but it kept replaying through my head and made me feel so crazy.

It began with me waiting to travel into Seattle for a field trip. A women came and told me that I wasn’t to wait for the rest of the group but that we would go along right then. I stopped at the bathroom before we left. Both my brother, Daniel, and I went into the separate bathrooms at the same time. When I got inside I realized there was no wall between the stalls. I saw there was a beam between the stalls so I grabbed a blanket and draped it over to provide some privacy, only to discover it still wasn’t high enough to shield his view. I decided to wait until later. As I left the bathroom I saw my mom. She told me that she had gotten Chad and I a car. She told me it was a Ford Focus. I thought that it was nice that she had taken care of things but that I wished we had had the chance to pick out what we wanted. At this point I am immediately in the car. I step into the driver’s seat and begin driving from the back seat. There is someone in the front passenger seat. As I am driving the GPS is giving me directions that quickly turn into hysterical and theatrical requests. First it’s a weather warning for high winds even though the wind is nonexistent. Then there are trees all over the road and I am slowly driving to avoid them. The GPS directions turn into my mom’s voice. Then the urgent and whining requests, I realize, are actually coming from the passenger seat and the passenger is me. The other me is crying and whining and out-of-control and acting like a very little child. The windows begin to fog up and from the back seat I am trying to figure out the defrost. I switch something which makes the car veer off to the side of the road. I get out of the car and open up the real driving seat door and lean in to the other me-passenger and try to calm me down. All the while the other me is screaming and crying something about “mommy” who I knew was my mom. Traffic is heavily passing beside us. I lightly smacked the other me on the face to try to snap her out of it so I could get through to her to help her. I thought it is going to look like I am beating somebody up or something. I turn around to see a man walking toward the car on the side of the road. I immediately called out for his help. I thought I was crazy since I was struggling with what appeared to be me in the passenger seat. He looked in shock and I could tell he saw the other me. I was glad I wasn’t seeing things. Then he said, “She’s eating your arm!” I turned back to the other me to see her savagely biting at the arm I had held out to comfort her. Up until this point I was annoyed at the other me behaving like a toddler when she was an adult. But at this point I was completely disturbed and woke up.

I thought the dream was so interesting. And it was funny that Elisa didn’t have any idea what the dream was about. So I asked her, “When do you have two people inside of you and you worry about turning into your mother?” It’s all just a big pregnancy nightmare. And Elisa is getting supplanted or consumed by the mini-me inside of her.

  1. Elisa felt out of control by trying to maneuver the car from the back seat. She felt blocked by the trees in the road.
  2. She is worried about not being able to understand or soothe a baby.
  3. She is worried about the baby taking her place or supplanting her relationship with me.
  4. She was worried about turning into her mother.

As soon as Chad asked me about when I have two people inside me the dream all started to be very clear. Although I think I am more afraid of becoming “a” mother than “my” mother. I stopped feeling crazy and understood what was really troubling me. What I am feeling is normal even if it is unnecessary. I am generally really excited and feel so blessed to be having a baby that I am sure the fears I have of this huge life-changing step get suppressed a bit. If those fears are going to surface in a disturbing dream at least it is nice to have my very own dream-interpreter on hand.

Congratulations! It sounds like a perfect fit, despite the pants thing.You know, I totally get it. I started working on my own because I don’t like waiting for permission to do things. And I like my autonomy. But, if I had the opportunity to do that with other people, I might consider it. You just never know.I hope you get to make lots and lots of kick-ass stuff.

Non sono d’accordo con chi sostiene l’universalità della morale, poiché è indubbio che essa soggiace comunque ai limiti dello spazio-tempo. Lo stesso precetto che vieta l’omicidio e che dovrebbe essere una – se non la principale – delle regole morali è un precetto relativo. Infatti, ha ed ha avuto delle eccezioni in base ai contesti socio-culturale e spazio-temporale di riferimento. Nel nostro attuale contesto socio-cultarale, ad esempio, è una cosa riprovevole e anzi costituisce il più grave dei delitti. Ma in altri contesti?

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

Beautiful, and you’re right: we need this! Thanks for providing some winter relief!p.s. I want to see what Christine ended up doing around the water feature this year — there was question about the side plantings and the back wall. Or did you already post about this and I’ve forgotten?

Alex, mi hai fatto venire in mente un’altra cosa bellissima degli anni ottanta: i cinema.Non i multisala fatti in serie di adesso tutti identici, ma i cinema di una volta con una personalità… dove potevi entrare anche a film iniziato, e, se ti andava, rivedertelo due volte (o tre) senza che arrivasse un giovanotto brufoloso con una felpa gialla a intimarti di sgombrare la sala.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

One thing I’d really like to say is that often before purchasing more computer memory, look into the machine within which it will be installed. When the machine is definitely running Windows XP, for instance, the particular memory threshold is 3.25GB. Adding over this would merely constitute some sort of waste. Make certain that one’s mother board can handle an upgrade amount, as well. Interesting blog post.

Los Libros de la Catarata es una buena editorial. Y, sobre el leit motiv de la entrada, ¿qué podemos esperar de un país donde los cargos públicos siguen teniendo una Biblia y un crucifijo en la mesa en la que juran o prometen el cargo?

Angie…these are beautiful! I made a mint thumbprint for a cooking club. But honestly….I much prefer a sweet, buttery little cookie with a sweet and sticky center. And I love poppy seeds…they just make the cookies that much prettier! : )

I can’t wait to give this a try – Saag Paneet is one oft favourite dishes & I love that you didn’t completely purée up the spinach. I’m eager to try making Paneet too so I have to check out Cheesepalooza. Glad you’re going to join in at IHCC.Couscous & Consciousness recently posted..

If ‘it’ is the ability to be a complete self-absorbed lady’s part with a distinct lack of vision, then yes I’ve met plenty of accounts people like that, in less than a year.And only one or two with any quality to their character.
