Dream from the mailbag:
I had a very disturbing dream last night…my usual dreams are of everyday things and them causing me stress, like problems at work or with my car etc…just stressful everyday things, and I wake up exhausted because I was dealing with problems all night; however last night was over the top. I do not remember the beginning of the dream but it starts in my memory about someone in my office having money and going to perhaps pay off my coworkers student loan, and then also mine (which I don’t have) although I have other debt, a student loan is not one…but in this dream I guess I had one, I went in to my kids bathroom and pulled out a ledger type book with loose papers sticking out, it was in the cabinet under the sink, it was dim as the light was not on, I could see because over the tub is a frosted window that lets light in, although it was twilight…I walked over to the tub to fix the shower curtain because it was all bunched together in the center of the tub and I was going to pull it across the rod, when I get to the tub I look down and I see my 14 yo daughter laying face up, fully clothed in water over her face, clearly drowned, I was so startled by this image I immediately woke up. I was disturbed and angry that my mind would allow this image and also for it to be so unsuspecting and finite in nature. I can not imagine what I might be thinking that would manifest this dream…help
Hi there, thanks for sharing your dream with me. I just so happened to have a moment so here you go. Let me preface this by saying that seeing children drowning, or almost drowning is by far the most common and seemingly most disturbing dream people have. I have many theories on what this particular symbol means and why it is SO universally common. That said, I tend to still take in each dream uniquely so here’s how I break it down.
