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.

A more in depth look at the meaning of baby and baby actions expanded from my Top 25 Common Dream Symbols.
Babies in dreams can have several different meanings but usually a baby represents: a new idea, new concept or new project that you have given birth to; A responsibility you have now accepted, a personal project or thing to do. It’s your ‘baby’. For example your baby could be a creative idea you have and plan to show the world such as draw, paint, put into music, or starting a business, new job or new project. Something that is yours alone, that you have birthed. Be a proud parent and display your baby to the world!
A baby: Can represent aspects of you being or acting like a baby, immature, innocent, a new personality trait coming out or starting to be visible in you.
Feeding a baby: You are feeding and nourishing your project. Watching it grow and mature seeing progression. Could also be you encouraging or nourishing the child part of yourself which if it is a brat is not good!
Dead Baby: To dream of a dead baby or dying baby is not a pleasant dream but keep in mind this is not a real baby it is a representation of an important project, job, idea or creative endeavor that you have let die or dropped accidentally. This dream could be pointing out to you that whatever this baby represented it would be wise for you to take care and not let your ideas die or sacrifice your ideas or projects for the sake of someone or something else. This is something many of us do to ourselves often (think of others before ourselves) could point out that you have allowed another person or situation to take away your hopes and ideas to the point of you letting it, the ‘baby’ die.
Bathing a Baby: Points to you making a fresh start, cleaning up messes and correcting mistakes you have made. Wash away the negative (dirty) stuff and starting new.
Dropping a Baby: Can be pointing out to you that you have dropped a valuable project or idea or hope. Take heed to this dream and consider what the baby represents. You may want to reconsider the action you are about to take in “dropping” it.
Killing a baby: This dream is asking you to look at what you are doing in waking life and is it really worth sacrificing your ‘baby’? Is it worth the cost?
Losing a baby: Losing your important and precious ideas, or losing hope in relation to something valuable to you
A lot of babies: Could be pointing out too many responsibilities, options, goals, or even problems or opinions for you to deal with.
Twin Babies: Can represent two equally valuable projects or ideas or goals.
I hope that these meanings can help you in your dream interpretations. As always, I remind you to ask yourself first what a symbol means to you the dreamer before consulting a dream dictionary. A good thing about dream dictionaries is that they can lead you or prompt you to meaning if you are stuck on something. Sometimes by even not agreeing with a meaning you can define what it does mean to you!

Falling in your dream is basically waking back up – the action of returning to consciousness.
The old tale that if you fall and hit the ground in your dream that you will die in your sleep IS NOT TRUE. If you hit the ground in the dream, you will bounce right back and the dream will continue… falling at this point would have the meaning of “falling from grace” or “fall on your face” = embarrassment. It is a play on words, falling in love, heading for a fall, falling down on the job, etc.
Drowning in dreams means you are in a situation that you feel you are in over your head, being in too deep, overwhelmed or emotionally overcome. If you dream you are drowning in muddy or murky water this indicates you are overwhelmed emotionally. There is always a possibility that it is an ESP warning. It is important that you note the background of the dream and your emotions/feelings in the dream.
