Two Dreams: Same Theme/Feeling

This morning while eating breakfast, Gracie and I were sharing our dreams.

It turns out they had similar themes.

Here is my dream:

In the dream, I am talking with Gracie’s dad and we are in a place like Fort McMurray. We have a plan for me to go to Ontario and then him to follow with her afterwards. I go to Ontario as planned and later when he arrives I begin conversations about when I will be picking Gracie up. At first he stutters, and answers in vague statements and when I press for details he gets angry. So he tells me he’ll work it out and hangs up on me.

In time, I call him back asking about picking her up. He finally admits to me that he left her in Fort McMurray, that he forgot her there. And he won’t tell me the location or the name or contact to reach her (maybe he doesn’t know it).

Then I get really anxious trying to find her. I am afraid that if I tell others I can’t find her that it will make me look bad. I am also afraid if I tell others what he did that it will be back-biting and make him look bad. So I don’t tell anyone a thing. It makes me appear anxious for no reason but in truth I’m just not sharing complex details to not make someone else look bad. To conceal the faults of someone.

I go to Gracie’s school to speak with her teacher and principal. They are  helpful and give me a few leads but they give instructions about walking through the school which is an enormous, futuristic-looking school, which is large enough to hold about 1000 students. I have to go up tall staircases, and down long hallways and through confusing corridors to get to the person who can give me the number to call in Fort McMurray to get help with getting Gracie back.

When I get to this location, which is in an upper level of the school which now looks like an apartment, I am talking to someone about solving this and getting her home.Then the fire alarm goes off in the entire building. My dad is there now and he grabs my computer case and says he’ll come with me. We start going down the stair but then I say I want to carry my own computer bag. Just then, someone who I know to have an issue with jealousy shows up on the stairs. She asks me, “What’s wrong, Rache?” with a condescending glance and when I start to tell her about Gracie missing, the huge maze-of-a-school, the fire alarm, the computer case I realize that she is not listening to be helpful. She is in fact listening to ridicule and tease me.

Because she has an issue with jealousy I know that if I just take my computer case and walk down the stairs she will feel like I am excluding her and she will get angry, and in her anger may lash out in revenge or to try to survive instead of me.

But I realize I cannot keep telling her details either as she has a horrible way of manipulating words to make me look bad. So I am standing there on the stairs looking at my computer case and the stairwell, listening to alarms going off, and wondering how to get past her without causing anger.


Gracie also had a dream of being left alone!

Here is her dream:

She and her dad were walking a swampy outdoor location.

There were people there doing a puppet show of the movie Finding Dory.

He kept changing like a hybrid into a character called Moe from her book (who has qualities of being brave, taking risks, being secretive, and happy). Then they teleported to a big, dark building which was scary.

Inside the building was a lady making dolls out of cloth. They were voodoo dolls and they took on the face of people. If you dropped the doll then the person would really fall. Also, if you dropped the doll the whole face would go blank.

When they were in the building, the Moe character was with her.

They found an exit.

Then they went to watch the movie Finding Dory.


How interesting to have similar feelings (of being lost or losing something) show up in the same dream on the same night.

More details on the symbols in this dream are included in “1008 Dream Interpretations & Solutions” which is being published in draft chapter, by chapter, on this blog over time.
