My dream last night placed me at a conference. The way I had entered the hall was a bit odd and could be two separate dreams merging.
It began at my mother-in-law’s house, where I had just finished doing dishes. I must have spent a lot of time up there because when I went back to my house, it was a total mess with dishes piled up everywhere.
The sink wasn’t working so I got upset at my husband and took them to the bathroom to wash them. I then passed my husband in a completely different room, one he couldn’t have gotten into without passing me first. I looked back and he was still behind me. I looked in the room again and it seems that it was his son. He was fixing the curtains or some other object high on the wall.
I went into the bathroom when the floor started tipping. The floor was made of plywood and was hiding a secret room under the house, which is impossible for the way my house is built. I walked through a door that was on one side of the room and found myself in a parking structure. My family walked down a ramp and into the conference center. We went into one of the meeting halls and I lost track of everyone I was with.
The meeting was about getting donations for PGE of California and conservation of water, but the donation envelopes were from Allegheny Power in Pennsylvania. I walked out because the presentation was obviously a fraud.
I walked back the way I came, but when I came to the parking garage, the slightly sloping ramp that I thought I had come down was now very steep. I had to pull myself up, with my left hand, using the handrail that I hadn’t noticed before. I never did reach the end of the ramp.
While driving my car today, I thought about the last part of the dream. I have been wanting to take some time just for me away from people. I thought about how similar this dream was to description of the Hermit in the Oracle of Astara.
What are my guides trying to tell me?
The Parking structure-is this the movement of the Chariot stalled?
The dirty dishes - is this the jumbled approach to my vision that denies the systems put in place by the Hierophant?
Or maybe the dreams are telling me that I am tired of the responsibilities that have been placed on me and I need take time for myself. After all, the last card represented by the dream is the Hermit, who in this deck takes time to contemplate before facing his fears.
