I had this weird dream last night. It left a really strong effect on me, and somehow I feel like this dream really means something, as opposed to the million other dreams I have every night. I’ve been trying to crack it all day but with minimal success. So I thought I’d share it with everyone on here, maybe you guys can help me out with it?
Ok, so here goes:
I dreamed that my parents, who right now are living in another country, were temporarily in the US to spend time with me and my SO. Well, in order to make sure that they were there for our wedding (it’s one of those irrational decisions in dreams), we decided to get married in a couple days (we’re not even engaged yet, but we live together and act as if we’re married…). Well, the next day (day before the wedding) my mom tells me that my best friend (we’ve been friends since we were born, she’s going to be my Maid/Matron of Honor no matter when/who I marry) just died. I was devastated, so I go to her apartment (weird since she also lives out of the country, but oh well…) and feel an incredible amount of emotional pain over this (I think this is a key thing, it’s a LOT more pain than I normally feel in dreams like that. I love her as a sister, but this was something else…as if it had really happened). A lot of my dream is just going around in her apartment feeling a lot of pain and speaking to her as if she was still alive. I sort of found out why she died (injury), and then we just postpone the wedding. I also remember feeling extremely sad that no one else knew her suffering, but privileged that she shared it with me.
Another thing that’s weird is that I had another dream, when I was a teenager, that was about her and felt just as important. In that one, we were both swimming in the ocean (deep down, we could breathe underwater). It was a dark ocean, not a lot of fish or vegetation. We reach this glass door that seems to span across the ocean and it opens for us, and so we enter a new part of the ocean that becomes a lot brighter, has fun colored fish and beautiful vegetation. I remember being in awe of it. We swim together upwards toward a source of light (the sun?) and at some point she just disappears from next to me and I keep swimming up. I thought I was still swimming with her, but when I turn to look at her I can’t see her anymore. I woke up just as I was approaching the surface, but this also felt like a really important dream.
Now, I started out in a poor country in Eastern Europe and ended up on the East Coast studying at an Ivy League college. I’m a senior now so needless to say I’m constantly grateful for having had this opportunity. Luckily, now I can also stay in this country as I will have a job when I graduate and also have an American to marry. It does feel like I’m still on my journey “upwards” toward the sunlight (my godmother, who is awesome at interpreting dreams, told me she thinks this ocean dream shows me my life, or at least a part of it. I have yet to realize where exactly I’m at on that ocean path at this point in my life).
So far (aside from the fact that I might lose touch with her at some point in my life), the only idea I had is that she might represent a part of me that could die. But I really don’t know if that’s it, or what part that is. I’m also not sure what the deal is with the wedding in the dream…
Do you ladies have any ideas?
