Do you ever have those dreams, that are so realistic, that you waking up wondering if it really happened? And then you think about it, and you're like well that was weird. I had one of those dreams the other day.
So in my dream, I was paragliding over this forest, with a lot of hills and trees, and really beautiful scenery. It was really nice, until I got over this one hill, and there was a man standing below yelling up at me. There were these two huge grizzly bears that looked like they were about to attack this man. All the man said to me was "Move out of the way lady." "Lady, turn around and get out of here." I turned around quickly and thankfully never saw him actually get attacked. As I turned around and headed the other direction, there was another bear in the distance. Maybe I was scared of being attacked myself, I woke up right as I was getting close to the bear.
That's weird right?
I was telling Daryl, and at the end of explaining my dream, I remember asking him "Daryl, right? That's a weird dream. Does that mean I'm crazy that I dream about bears attacking random people? I wonder what that means. I'm going to google it."
So I hopped on Google, and searched for a dream dictionary.
You guys, I may have found a new hobby.
OK so according to the dream dictionary:
Bear: To see a bear in your dream represents independence, strength, death and renewal, and/or resurrection. Bears of symbolic of the cycle of life. You may also be undergoing a period of introspection and thinking. In particular, if you see a bear in your grandmother's house, then it implies that your grandmother is a dominating figure in your life.
Parachute:To dream that you are in a parachute represents a protective force over you. You have a sense of security. Alternatively, the dream implies that it is time to bail out of a situation or abandon an old idea or habit.
After I read this, I started interpreting my own dream, and here is what I came up with.
Bear: Independence/ Strength/ Renewal. I have a new position at work, and am having to be strong as there are some complications outside of my control. More specific, a situation in which I am having to "grin and bear it."
Parachute: Without going into details, I am having to abandon an idea about work.
Pretty werid right? I have never really been into this kind of thing before, but it is so fascinating to me to put some meaning with those random dreams. What about you? Any dreams you can associate meaning to?
