“Dreams are like stars…you may never touch them, but if you follow them they will lead you to your destiny.”
Now that my alarm clock is not a young child screaming in my face I’ve been remembering more and more dreams over the past couple of years. Do you remember your dreams?
At the same time I’ve been making a concerted effort during my waking hours to use my creative energies on a regular basis, whether it’s writing or
scaring the dog by learning the ukulele.
So let’s just say I was pretty bummed the other night when I woke up after dreaming about sweeping.
not a euphemism. *yawn* Yes, congratulations, Wendy! You are now dreaming about household chores.
barely interesting twist was that my broom kept shrinking as I swept.
Maybe this represents my ongoing struggle with my filthy floors – never staying clean for long. True, but really, are my dreams now that boring?
So I looked up “sweeping” in my favorite online dream dictionary (what? everyone has those.)
Any type of cleaning in a dream can suggest ‘cleaning up’ or removing outworn ideas and attitudes. You may be sweeping to clear the ‘house’ or inner self of the buildup or ’dust’ or residue that accumulates from experience. Sweeping can also symbolize ‘sweeping issues under the carpet’ if you are not facing something.
Well, now we’re gettin’ somewhere juicy. Except that with a shrinking broom my subconscious seems to be basically admitting defeat.
To add insult to injury, I woke from this dream, thought it was odd, fell back asleep and proceeded to dream about telling someone about the sweeping dream I just had.
I can’t even come up with new material for my dreams??
Tell me you’re having wild, crazy dreams. Maybe a little sex, a little flying, something?
I’m afraid to go asleep now and dream about doing my taxes or some light dusting or dog ear cleaning or email inbox clearing or…. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Shit. You don’t want to know.
