Dream from the mailbag:
The dream I have had is of me getting married. I am 50 years old now but I have had this dream several times throughout my life. I see myself walking down the aisle in a church, in a very formal wedding dress. I get to the front of the church beside my groom and I can’t see his face. I struggle to see him and I am unable. I feel very frustrated because I try so very hard to see whom I am marrying but I can’t. The dream seems to always stop there. I haven’t had this dream in about 10 years. I do think about it from time to time and my emotions are very real just as vivid still to this day. Now I did marry at 20 but it didn’t work out. I am still legally married to this man, whom I so dearly still love. I haven’ seen or spoken to him in over 20 years. I have no desire to divorce him still but of course I will not return to him either. Why is this dream still so vivid and why do I think about it from time to time? I have the same emotions as I did the 1st time I had this dream.I have had other dreams I remember but this one particular one has meant the most to me for some reason.
Thank you for sharing your dream with me.
When I think of weddings in dreams, I think of long term commitments. I once dreamed I was getting married but I know it was representing a long term job proposal. My groom represented the would be company.
In your case though, I have to take into consideration your actual marriage circumstances and then wonder if a more literal translation might apply. For instance, you are unable to “see his face” which is the case for your actual relationship since you state that you are legally married but have not seen him in a great deal of time. Your frustration and inability to see what you want to, to see what you are committed to might be the root cause. Maybe you think about this man you dearly love from a distance. Look to see if there is a connection between longing for or even just thinking about this person and the occurrence of your dream?
Finally, because this dream recurred consider that its trigger is one that has been a constant in your life. One that perhaps is always with you or that has not fully been addressed and therefore keeps emerging until it is properly sorted or dealt with. The emotions you have are very real and are linked to thoughts that are very real. It seems to me the work to be done is to make the connection between the two.
Hope this helps!
