What were you wearing in your dreams last night?
Did you know that clothing and what we wear during our nighttime journeys is an
important key to understanding the whole message of the dream?
The clothes we wear or don’t wear in our dreams represents our ideas of how we look to others, our outward appearance like our attitudes, emotions true or “put on”, and ideas. The outfits can represent your style, fashion and your self-esteem.
For me, I often remember what I am wearing in my dreams, the colors, fabric, and fit, designer and maybe that is because I love fashion and clothing. After all I
have been in the fashion business for many years now, as my other career! But I find it very helpful to understanding my dream message by starting with what I am wearing in the dream. Was I wearing something I normally wear? Was it colorful? Were my clothes dirty or clean? Were they beautiful and expensive? Or was I wearing something inappropriate or out of place, like pajamas at work?
Here are a few dream interpretations of fashion and what we wear or don’t wear in our nightime journeys:
Beautiful, Expensive, Designer Clothing: a beautiful attitude, love, luxury, kindness, graciousness. Also indicates your level of self-worth and pay attention to the designer or brand you are wearing because those brands carry their own energy and attitude. For example: If I am wearing a beautiful Chanel gown I know what the brand Chanel means to me so that is added personal dream interpretation.
Weird or Strange clothes: Like a clown suit at a business meeting. This would indicate that you feel ridiculous in this situation or you have a funny attitude about the situation.
Favorite Clothing: This is your familiar comfortable ideas and beliefs, known and suitable.
Clothes that don’t fit: An attitude that doesn’t fit with your overall life and beliefs presently. Or something that is not suitable for you.
Too Big: Could indicate you need to “grow into” this attitude, lifestyle, if you happen to like the outfit. If you don’t like the outfit then the idea is not for you. Let it go.
Too Small: This could mean that you have outgrown this attitude or lifestyle, or ideas. That you need to find “your size” that fits you just right.
I would love to hear what you are wearing in your dreams. Share with me your thoughts on your dream outfits.
I will go further on this subject in my next post.
Until then, I wish you many blessings and
I think one of the greatest services we can do for others
is to do for ourselves and be an inspiration to our fellow humans by creating
and living our own dreams. I confess that often when I want to do something new or a big change, I research and research how someone else did it. Then, after reading about 10 different other
people who did the thing that I want to do; I think to myself “Oh I can’t do that I am not
qualified or educated in that field or experienced. Who am I to do “that” thing that I want to do?” And what happens next? I have talked myself right out of my brilliant idea that I want to do because of looking at “everyone” else on how to do it or express it.
At this point, I have come to know that two things are going on
1.) FEAR of change, going out of my comfort zone etc
2.) I am leaning on others experiences to do something that was put on my heart to do.
I am leaning on others by reading about them, checking out their websites, books, their “about me” page etc. Then I compare me and my experience, education, etc. and then sometimes I call a few people and ask them about this and that and how I should proceed. After all that I decide” oh I can’t do that. I am not good enough. Why did I even think that?” And I have defeated my own dream by leaning on others and not my own inner I AM, God and Universal Knowledge and inspiration. How many times have you
This morning I was meditating on this particular big idea and how to go about it and I opened one of my favorite books, “Creative Mind and Success” by Earnest Holmes. I opened to this page: Don’t Be A Leaner.
Hmm, I am not a leaner I said to myself. I mean I make my own way blah
blah and all that I manage, coach and run a successful business. Then it hit me, yeah, I am a leaner at times. In summary it says that we are enough, we have our own God given genius within our souls. Our job is to unearth this genius from within and we can never do that by looking to others for guidance. The Divine spark must be fanned into a blaze of the living Fire of your own divinity.
To thine own self be true. Self-Reliance is the key to dwell upon. Listening to your own voice as it speaks to us in ways that are completely understood by us. And to trust in yourself more than you trust in anyone else. Stop looking for others when you already know the answer, to your own question, dream, and desire. I think a lot of times we are just afraid of the answer. That it might be too hard to do so we look to see if there is an easier, faster, less painless way to our dream or desire! I know I can get caught in that
illusion. I have also discovered and learned through experiences good and bad that it is better to face the fear and do it. Because when I am afraid to do something, I should do it. That is
usually my ego wanting to stay comfy and in the safe known area.
Every one of us has within our own soul’s direct communication with the Divine energy, Infinite Understanding. When we lean on other people we are trying to light our path with their light.
In the end of the short chapter it goes on stressing our own strength and oneness with Infinite Mind. It specifically advises: When you have a real thing to do, keep it to yourself. Don’t talk about it to anyone. Just know in your own mind what it is you want and keep still about it. Often, when we have a big idea we go out and blab to everyone about it and next thing you know it has lost all its power. Because people respond by being confused, questioning or even laughing about it and it becomes confused and
then it is manifested as confused.
When you have an idea, keep it to yourself, be focused, get the mental picture of it, make it
perfect in mind, enlarge your thought and pass it over to the creative power that is behind all things, wait and listen and when an impression comes to you, trust it no matter how crazy and follow it with assurance. Never talk about it to anyone. Never talk negative or pay any attention to negativity and you will succeed where others fail.
Blessings all around you.
Ahh, the day after Valentine’s Day? Anyone have a love hangover? LOL
Lots of emotions run high, lots of love, lots of pressure for many to get the right gift, give the right gift, prepare or have the most romantic dinner at home or restaurant, you all know the drill. Former Valentines Day I have received beautiful gifts, expensive gifts, flowers of all types, romantic dinners the whole thing from some pretty wonderful men. But not this year. Yesterday, my furry Valentine, Pierre woke me up with a big paw in my face telling me it was time to get up and let him out.
Hmmm, very romantic indeed. I am not currently dating anyone but that did not diminish the day of love for me. In fact, I try to make every day a day of love even it isn’t romantic love. Sometimes it is not easy. I am not saying or trying to convey to you that ” oh my life is nothing but koala bears and lollipops” everyday because I am soooo metaphysically and spiritually evolved! ha ha. Nor, did I dream some psychic dream telling me when and where I am going to meet my forever man. Scratch that, man of the hour, day or month either of those three would be a good start for me!
What do I do everyday to make my day a love filled day? Well, I do wake up to that fuzzy cute face every morning and that makes me smile right away. Then I really try and keep in that positive energy flow by focusing my thoughts throughout the day on all things, people and places in my life, even the smallest things that make my life sweet and lovely. For example, I really don’t like my hour commute each way to and from work. Instead of focusing and bitching about that drive and its negative aspects I shift my thoughts and choose to think good things about it. Such as: I get to drive to work in an SUV that I LOVE! I love how luxurious and comfortable it is inside and to ride in and that it is beautiful outside with a powerful engine to move fast when needed or wanted! I also love that my long drive takes me through beautiful neighborhoods lined with trees, flowers, fountains in front of big beautiful homes and nice roads. And I love that the time it takes me to drive to work, lets me listen to my favorite music and or motivational cd’s that maybe otherwise I would not have the time. And before I know it I am at work, in a good mood.
No, I did not get flowers or perfume, or a romantic dinner or a mushy card yesterday from a significant handsome romantic man. But, I did get a card from my mom, (thanks mom) and I got to give my grandma a Valentine card in the morning before leaving for work, I got to wish many people at work a happy Valentines day while helping a few look fabulous for their special dates last night. And what was really cool about my Valentine’s Day yesterday was that it was really close to what my day is like everyday. I love and am grateful for the choice that I make to make my every day Valentines’ Day for me – no matter what.
