Sometimes, when I am desperate to speak to my mother.
When I need advice, or am stuck on something I’ll ask her out loud—I tend to do this when I am alone— to come talk to me in my dreams, so I can consult with her.
Most recently, it was over what I should do with my mom’s house. The house I grew up in.
The question: “Mom. Should I rescue the house we grew up in from foreclosure?” — Then I waited later that night to dream.
How the “yes” and “no” of this will impact me:
- If, “yes”, then that means I’ll have to take out a huge home loan to repair it, so I can rent it or sell it.
- If, “no”, — then we lose it completely and have to pay back taxes on it or sue our dad.
In the dream, I was with my mom. Painting the walls of our childhood home. Loving the house and getting it ready for rental. For some reason we decided to paint the walls a chocolate brown, and after we painted it, we didn’t like the result. At the same time we both said, “Why don’t we try a gold overlay?” And we laughed because we had the same thought.
Then the dream morphed, into different scenarios, not related to the house. In one case, I was driving a truck along a cliff, and she was my co-pilot. I began to steer in the wrong direction—and she corrected my path.
Or if these are merely dreams?
Do any of you have experiences like these?
