Valley Hills Mountains


Mountains and Valleys/Candycane 

I dreamt I was in the middle of a valley and I saw some big hills with red and dark brown rocks, more like a mountain really but there were no trees. I am talking with a few friends and suddenly we heard a strange sound like big giant bells were falling down. Everybody started running and screaming... but I stood frozen and then the bells/balls (I couldn't tell to be honest) hit a red car, inside the car was a man or somebody anyway, the balls had destroyed them. It was very fast and when the ball hit something else it became like a lightning ball with electricity that was blue and sparkling. All the balls were passing near me but not even one touched me. A boy appeared and asked me how it was possible that I had escaped unharmed. I didn't know, but then he said “perhaps it is what you hold.” In my hands I had a candy cane with mint pastilles, (I often eat them) but on the front of the can was written a Latin sentence. I don’t remember the words, now but I understood that it was my protection so I said to him if you need help you must let me know. 

A valley is another symbol for being in the middle as it happens, a valley runs through hills and mountains, it is a symbol for how you can get through difficult times, the hills and mountains symbolise tough obstacles to get over or tough times to get through. The ‘valley’ symbolises the route that you take through stubborn problems. It shows you that there is a way forward for you which will bring you out the other side of your troubles. The hills and mountains can be symbolic for how big you feel your problems are and not a representation of how big or small they actually are. Dreams often tell you how you are feeling and not how things are. Your thoughts and feelings are put into symbols instead of being put into words. 

The strange balls or bells or a mixture of both symbolise unexpected bolts out of the blue, a bolt from the blue is a saying used to explain something that happens unexpectedly. These unexpected happenings (sorry I can’t say what these unexpected happenings are) will cause some amount of mayhem around you, other people around you will probably be hit or affected too, it could be something sudden like job loss or anything that happens and stuns the people it affects, it could equally be positive unexpected changes as well. Balls and bells are not really a symbol of negativity, they are more a symbol of 'sit up and take note'.

You, however, seem to have protection from these sudden changes, you will come out of it all unscathed. Protected by your sweetness perhaps. You seem to be needed in the role that you are playing. You also offer your services to help the other people who are affected by the sudden changes and this is because you are a caring and kind person who always thinks of others as well as yourself.

Sweets and candy often represent the sweet things in your life or the pleasurable bits that you get to experience in between all the troubling bits. Mint is used to freshen up something that has become stale. This could be your talents, your life, love or relationships. 


Being followed by a strange man in my dream


I am with a girlfriend and we are walking and talking, but behind us, there is a couple, a woman and a man (I don’t know them in real life) but for some reason, I didn't like the man. But we continued to go on and then I saw some steps and we started to go up them, but suddenly I turned and said to my friend “we should not go to the other side.” My friend was in front of me and she was leading and I was following her. I heard a strange voice from beside me and when I turned back I saw the man who was behind us earlier and he was ugly. I was then alone and he grabbed my hair and he managed to take some of my hair.

I started to scream and then he said: “I’m going to eat this hair because I want to unite with you, I want to become as one.” I said to him “never going to happen” and I grabbed him and punched him. I saw he had a mark on his right leg (not from birth) but more like some operation or surgery. 

The steps you need to take!
This dream seems to be reminding you to use your natural instincts regards situations or people who cannot be trusted, in this case, it is probably a man who is interested in having a relationship with you, but your instincts will tell you something isn't quite right about him.

The steps are suggesting that you will get the opportunity to go up in the world, maybe at work or in your career, but this opportunity will come at a cost, you know the situation where in order to move up the career ladder you have to be nice to the male boss and then they want more from you than you are prepared to give.

Your hair is a symbol of power and perhaps this type of person is trying to take your power away from you. You don’t seem to give it away free anyway and you fight to stay in control of the situation so it should all work out alright for you. Be strong and stand your ground, move up the work ladder with hard work, it might be a slower process but you will get there in the end. 

When someone is ugly in a dream it is a way to show you that they are not a very nice person on the inside. It can also mean that they have low self-esteem and don't think they are worthy. 

The marks on his leg suggest he has been hurt in the past and perhaps this hurt is what has caused him to become who he is today. Basically, he is damaged and needs to heal or mend before he can have a good meaningful relationship with a woman, he needs to know that possessing or owning a woman is not going to create a lasting loving relationship.

A Flying Obstacle Dream


In my dream I knew that I was going somewhere, but not sure where. I stepped off this high building and flew (just like Superman). Then for some unknown reason I flew underwater to a cave, only to find that my way was blocked by what looked like the gable end of a building which had fallen off. I tried to get through a number of the small holes, but was unable to. Then as I waited the Gable end of the building seemed to slowly disappear.

I then saw a number of people walking towards me in a Group and they also slowly disappeared. I proceeded forwards and then found myself on a street naked) and the pavement was covered in broken glass, millions of small nails, and other rubbish.
I found it extremely difficult to take any meaningful steps.
Then my Alarm went off and that was the end of the dream.

Flying is often used in dreams to express freedom for the soul, or to remind us that our soul is free, it happens when we need to remember the pure freedom that we have on another level of existence and it happens for many other reasons which I won’t go into here as those reasons are not applicable in this particular case.

Your soul is free to learn whatever it wants, it can learn about everything there is to know about people, the unknown, other people’s ideas and beliefs, everything and anything that life can teach you in fact. Experience is learning!

You flying or delving into the water is a way for you to recognise the act of delving in and finding out all you can about the unknown, because of the water you will be emotionally connected to the things you find out about or learn about. Going down is like delving into the depths of the unknown.

The cave is also used as a symbol for going backwards in time or back to the source of information to find what you are looking for. The cave which is hidden, is a symbol of what is hidden from you, or what goes on underneath the surface. We often have to go backwards in order to make progress because to really understand something it needs going over twice. That’s why we go back and forth, because we didn't understand the first time.

Your way being blocked is self-explanatory of the obstacles that get in the way of your learning, buildings could be used as an earthly symbol or it is earthly things that stand in the way of your progression or learning. In contrast to this buildings are concrete and perhaps the concrete barriers that stand in your way are beginning to crumble and break down, these barriers seem to be in your way or blocking your way but in your dream they begin to disappear so at least you know that any barriers will eventually dissolve and go away on their own.

The group symbol is usually about people of like mind, a group who think alike for example, perhaps this group will disperse or break up and this might leave you feeling vulnerable (naked) this means that the way ahead for you spiritually will seem paved with dangerous obstacles, the glass nails etc. The spiritual road is also paved with lots of rubbish, let’s face it we have to learn to negotiate the rubbish, the nails and glass on any spiritual journey, when you are going it alone it is really scary. But sometimes a journey has to be done alone, you are never really alone anyway, your spirit guides are always with you.  
You will make meaningful steps, you are learning independence and to trust your own judgement and that is more meaningful than becoming reliant on a group to tell you the answers all the time.

A Leopard ran out of the cemetery?


I had a nightmare, I was passing by the cemetery and a Leopard came out, it ran after me and kissed me on my mouth, I would like to know the meaning!

Something is rising up again and coming to bit you on the bum! Feelings maybe? 

The Cemetery is a representation of a situation or perhaps a relationship that in your mind is over, or dead and buried, it is in your past. 

The Leopard probably symbolises a women, cats are normally used in dreams to represent a woman character, the feline nature etc. I wonder if a woman from the past is going to show up again in your life. Or perhaps a new relationship seems to follow the same pattern as a previous relationship? Because the Leopard was amorous to you in the dream scenario it seems to me that a women is offering you a relationship or friendship, perhaps you worry she has alternative motives? 

A kiss can symbolise love and affection as well as them giving you a seal of approval. 
Wild cats are however slightly feared and unpredictable in nature, they say a leopard never changes its spots so I feel that you will approach any new relationship with caution. Perhaps you have past relationships that have made you wary or uncomfortable with the unpredictability that relationships tend to bring to your life.

Dreaming during pregnancy


When you are pregnant your dreams can become vivid and quite extreme, its not uncommon for them to cause anxiety, especially if they deliver negative scenes or nightmarish scenarios. I have spoken to quite a few pregnant women whose dreams have bothered them during their pregnancy, often their nightmares are about their unborn child or about the delivery. I always start out by telling them to relax because dreams are very rarely predictive in nature and nearly always over the top with the message they bring. Your dreams can help you to work through all your fears and hangups regards your pregnancy the birth and your baby, and it is not uncommon for your own fears to manifest in your dreams and serve as the catalyst for them.

There are many reasons that your dreams can get out of control at this time:

You certainly remember your dreams easier because you are waking up more often in the night. (usually, because you have a baby doing star jumps on your bladder, making you need the loo)

You are overly sensitive and brimming with hormones, making you feel vulnerable and not in control of your life. Hormones also make you more spiritually sensitive.

You are worrying about all number of things and not necessarily talking about your fears with the people around you. This means that you will often face your fears through your dreams. Or a bad dream might make you start a conversation with your friends and family about something that subconsciously you are worrying about. 

By facing nightmares you are learning to deal with the extra stress and worries that new babies often bring, in a way you are toughening up. Being a mum requires all of your inner strength and wisdom and therefore it is common that your dreams or nightmares are helping to toughen you up and deal with your fears rationally. Many first time mums comment about their irrational thinking when the baby is here, they comment that they didn't know that they would worry so much over silly things. No one really tells them what its like to worry over a child. Your dreams do try to prepare you a little bit. 

Like young children, babies are closely connected to the spirit world and this is also what heightens your own psychic abilities during pregnancy. When your own psychic abilities are intensified like this you will experience the more unusual phenomenon, you will be aware of more than you usually are and this can be confusing, your dreams are helping you toughen up to anything you ‘pick up’. Not being affected by bad dreams is a way of building up your own psychic protection.

Your fears of giving birth will be explored in your dreams but that doesn't mean that there will be problems during delivery it just means that you should work through your fears now so that you can just get on with the job when the time arrives. Consider that your subconscious is pushing forward your fears so that you bring them out into the open and talk about them. When you have talked about a fear it will diminish. Dreaming that you can’t deliver your baby is a way for you to see that you are not getting out your feelings and thoughts, you are keeping it all inside yourself. There are lots of psychological anxieties to sort through before your baby comes along and you will be fully prepared if your dreams have been busy and thought provoking during pregnancy. 

Pregnancy dream symbols can be translated in the usual way but consider if the dream is referring to your new role as mum, dreaming of pregnancy or giving birth when you are not pregnant symbolises new beginnings, starting a new project that will need nurture and good care to bring it through too success. This type of translation will be highly appropriate for a pregnant woman as well, but rather than a project it will be the new baby that requires your devoted love, care, time and energy.


The quest for spiritual knowledge


In my dream, I was at work (yet again) and I was being trained for a new position but I was absolute rubbish. My desk was a mess and I couldn't make any decisions. I tried tiding up my desk.
A colleague was looking at me but not intervening. I looked at him pleading for help and he came to me but I knew I was not coping well. That’s all I remember.

This dream is pretty self-explanatory really, it’s about your insecurities in the workplace, feeling inadequate for the tasks you are set or being out of your depth with a new role. Everyone starts off like this and the first six months in any new role are always the hardest, when you start getting used to it you will look back and wonder what you were getting in a state about. The mess in your dream describes the mess or muddle you get in, and you trying to straighten it up is a way for you to understand the effort you put into trying to undo the mess you find yourself in. You want some help from your colleagues or from the people around you but they don’t seem to offer much help either.

I'm always tidying up mess in a dream and it drives me crazy, no matter how much I tidy up there is always more to do, it seems like there is no end to the sorting out I have to do with my family, friends and work in real life too, so whenever I have these tidying dreams I know I am going to be sorting out everyone else’s problems or clearing up after a mess they have created. Like most problems that come along things straighten out in the end.
Incidentally consider if the workplace is symbolic for the spiritual work that you do because sometimes this type of message relates to spiritual work and is not always about your career. 

Another dream I remember, I was with my boyfriend talking about names for dogs. I told him Bobby and Toby sounded the same to me (I don’t really like these names for a dog). He told me Toby had been trained to bring water to people.

Dogs are often used to represent someone who is a protector, someone who looks after you and takes care of you, they are often working quietly in the background, working away without recognition. That’s why in dream symbolism dogs are used to represent the spiritual guide or guard and soul protector.  

You seem preoccupied with the name of such a person, I wonder if you have been asking for the name of your own spiritual guide? Toby has been trained to bring people water, well how interesting is that? Perhaps your guide is bringing you information to quench your thirst for spiritual knowledge?

Incidentally, the name Toby comes from the 'Hebrew' meaning God is Good! Google it yourself and see what you come up with for the names, this is a good way to translate the meaning and message to this dream. I do feel a spiritual connection with this dream but I think you can find the message yourself.

The last dream I remember, I was in a convenience store. There were two books and they looked interesting to me. One of them was like a psychology magazine and I wanted to buy it. It came with a newspaper. I looked for the newspaper and found out it was for free. The other one was about tarot, I opened it and read a little bit. It looked interesting to me and the price was reduced, so I bought it too.

Yes, this confirms it, these dreams are relating to your quest for spiritual knowledge and learning, books are amazing at passing on knowledge and your dream is prodding to you to read all you can about all the different subjects. I love books as you may be aware, I love them so much I wrote one myself. Everyone should write a book, everyone has a story or two to tell.  I’m not saying you have to believe everything you read but look at it as research and education. Never ever stop learning!

I think many people ask for readings because they want their spiritual questions answered, really they should read lots and find the answers for themselves, research if you like. I always research everything, every topic you can imagine. Youtube, google etc. its the same as having a library at your fingertips. And yes it is all free. Knowledge is free. So learn all you can about everything and if you make discoveries along the way and change the way you think, then wonderful. But don’t ever stop searching for more because you will change your mind with the more you learn.

Then share what you have learned for other people to learn from. 
Enlightenment through experience and learning!
