I had a dream the other night, some might consider it a nightmare. I on the other hand have my own interpretation of the dream.
The dream was about a man, a vicious man. A man who intended harm to my close friends. We all stood together as he tried repeatedly to get to one or another of my friends and do them harm. As he tried and tried again, I saw a serrated knife lying on the counter next to me. I picked up the blade and held it behind me. I knew he was intentionally trying to harm my friends to hurt me, so the next time he tried to reach one of my friends who was next to me, I plunged forward thrusting the knife towards his stomach. At first it didn’t sink in very far, so I stepped back and plunged the knife in again with much greater force using the momentum of my body to force it in. I could feel it as it broke through the different layers, skin and then muscle and then nothing stopped it until the handle met his stomach. Then I twisted it and angled it upwards to cause as much damage as I could and watched as he crumbled onto the ground at our feet.
I woke after that and considered who or what this man represented in my life. There are no actual people in my life who are this vicious so I knew he did not represent an actual person. I thought about people like him in society and how they are a blight upon society. I would like to think this dream represents my battle with the blight in my life and if it does it gives me hope that I will win this battle.
There was one other time I had a dream like this in my life during a very important turning point. Dreams for me carry messages. They give us clues as to what is going on in our lives. I think they can also be prophetic. What I do know for certain is if you can ascertain their meaning they can help you make good choices in your life. I have had some dreams show me the true nature of a person and the person’s influence in my life damaging or eating away at the core of who I am, so I pay close attention to my dreams, especially those which are very clear and remain with me for long periods of time.
Take what you will from this and know for me this dream was no nightmare but a dream of hope.
