- walking through a forest which was other-worldly
- it was like it was man-made and natural at the same time
- the trees had rocks on them or were made out of rocks or grew through the rocks
- the crickets were there but sparse
- i was being dragged under a car
- feel the ground on my skin
- it was dark
- i felt it & then also backed away and watched it
- it was quite horrible
I’ll tell you what these dreams mean.
A forest is a metaphor for the mind. For it to have an other-wordly feel means I could go to places in my mind which were different than what is predictable and common. Perhaps some might call this a gift with Creativity and perhaps it might also be called a skill at being able to use my imagination with expertise in my creative work endeavors.
Trees are about growth.
Crickets are small insects and the first thing to come to mind is that they are what we feed pet snakes. Snakes are about transformation and change.
To dream of being dragged by a car means someone is doing something which is controlling the direction of my life and they don’t care if it hurts me or not. Since I had a strong physical sensation of my skin on the ground it means there’s a strong likelihood that what the person is doing will show up in my day-to-day life and I will have some hurt and negativity to deal with.
Feeling it and then backing away and watching it means that I can detach from really negative situations and look at them from a distance which gives me a perspective and allows me to grow and learn from the experience.
The feeling of horror in the dream woke me up to something to be alert to. In fact, something really negative did happen in real life a short time after this dream. I’d like to think that I was somewhat prepared for it and that I handled the situation well, all things considered.
