If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "".  If it starts with" (or "") you will get this error because "" is not technically the same website as "". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Trying to understand dreams...
« on: October 28, 2017, 03:50:04 pm »
Lately, I have been trying to get back into bringing my spirituality back into a higher priority. I am a mother of 3 young boys and have a full time job, so spare time is very rare. :) But I used to practice witchcraft a little, and mostly considered myself a Wiccan. I am not sure what I would call myself now, but I am trying to figure that out. I also have found that I have a spirit that is hanging around my home and trying to get noticed. He just makes his presence known by just the feeling, or we will see something move out of the corner of our eye, and the other day he even said "boo" behind my mom while she was visiting. I am guessing this is because I am planning to attend a "psychic development" workshop tomorrow with a women that was recommended by a local witchcraft supply store. And she mentioned that the spirit is likely excited that I will be working on getting my old abilities back and make them stronger (I used to see spirits regularly, but closed myself off to them as they often scared me as I was quite young).

So now to the dreams, lately they have been a lot of dreams about locked gates, doors, or the feeling of being trapped and unable to break away. One dream I suddenly became aware that I was dreaming but it felt like I was actually walking in a real world. I was able to climb into a truck and start driving. A man started waving his arms at me on the sidewalk and yelling something, but I became uncertain and drove faster. Then I suddenly came to this giant gate blocking the entire road, sidewallk and grass. And I couldn't decide if I should ram it with the truck or how to get across. When I was finally able to get it open, all I saw was this dark and scary road ahead and that's when I woke up.

In my latest dream, I was travelling in a vehicle that was cram full of people. And they were all headed in a direction that was opposite the way I wanted to go. So I was trying to fight and yell to let me out. But no one would listen.. Instead it seemed like they were trying to hold me in my place to prevent me from moving. Suddenly a woman came up to the vehicle and they stopped and she convinced them to let me go so that I could get where I needed to go. As soon as I was free, I saw this giant bear trying to break through a barricade on the side of the road. It was a very large brown bear that was clearly very angry, as there was a mass of people trying to prevent it from coming through the barricade. And they wouldn't let me get near the bear. The bear was becoming bloody and enraged as it was trying to get through the concrete wall. It was a very bizarre dream. And I kept trying to figure out how to stop the people from hurting the bear without the bear hurting anyone, but that is when I woke up.

I have tried to do various forms of meditating to see if I could break through and meet my spirit guides to get a sense of what I should be doing to improve my spiritual side. But the few times that I felt myself finally let go, I feel like I am underwater or wrapped tight. It feels like I can't move, can't breathe, can't speak. So I'm wondering if maybe something is blocked or preventing me from moving forward? But I'm not sure exactly what my dreams are trying to tell me... So any thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I am hoping this workshop tomorrow is worth the money and able to get me going in the right direction.

That seems likely, though without knowing more about your actual circumstances it's hard to give advice.

Keep in mind that the block you're sensing might be mundane in nature: fatigue is the first thing that comes to mind (and who could blame you?). Like, are you sleeping well and getting enough nutrition? How is your stress level at work?

You might also try poking around the forum for ways of incorporating your spiritual practice into daily life - Jenett posts good advice on this fairly frequently.
