Dreaming I am More Important than I Really Am

Last night I dreamt that Gordon and I were at a church in our neighborhood. It was Sunday, so we were there for the regular service, but we were really just there to hear the sermon, which was going to be given by some famous visiting civil rights speaker. We are waiting for the service to begin when I get a text message on my phone. It’s from Michelle Obama. She says they (she and Barack) are in town and were planning on attending a different church service, but are now considering coming along with us to hear the civil rights lecture. She wants to know if we would be okay with them dropping in. Of course, I am pleasantly surprised to be receiving text messages from the First Lady and I tell them to come on over. They do, we all hang out. It’s very cool.

So I plugged all that into an online dream dictionary, and here is what I can make of the interpretation:

*To see the inside of a church in your dream, signifies that you may experience some minor setbacks. However, what seem to be nuisances will turn out to be a blessing in disguise. (Sounds ominous, but not entirely unpleasant)

* To dream that you are in a lecture may serve as a continuation of your intellectual thinking carried over from your waking hours. (I am just heading into my second week of grad school, so this makes sense)

* To see or use a cell phone in your dream, indicates that you are being receptive to new information. It also represents your mobility. (My mobility?)

* To dream that you are pleasantly surprised, indicates that you are open in acknowledging and confronting your unconscious feelings. (I think the fact that I am trying to interpret a funny dream through a cheesy online dream dictionary pretty much confirms that I am open to acknowledging and confronting my unconscious feelings)

* To see the president of your country in your dream symbolizes authority, power and control. It may also represent your own personal views and opinions of the president and his actions. (Wait, does it mean I have authority, power and control or someone else has authority and power and control over me? Seems like a pretty important distinction. Oh, and my views and opinions of the president? Love him.)

What can you tell me about the recent dream I had in which I repeatedly found myself in a locked room into which someone repeatedly kept throwing canisters of deadly gas which repeatedly kept killing me?

Troy, all I can say is, watch your back.

link to this dream dictionary? I want to know why I never have proper flying dreams, every time I fly in a dream its difficult and my 'wings' aren't fully formed. That's probably a bad sign huh...Then again even badly formed wings are wings! hehe

This post has cursed me. Just this morning I dreamed that Eva fell off a cliff in Glacier National Park. Absolutely devastating. Fortunately, she somehow managed to grab hold of some obscure object and I found her dangling just over the edge.

It's time for some nice dreams!

The following wv is consistent with the spirit of this comment: frearb, as in, "There is nothing to frearb except frearb itself."

These words are so fun to use in sentences!
