Hints on your dream – You revisited within you the feelings of loss you experienced with your friend losing her children in a fire.
Your dream carries this forward to use in the feeling of losing your godson. It seems you have an intuition of an explosion going to happen in your life, and it involves a vulnerable part of you. An explosion can relate to growth or destruction that can occur from the unconscious which may destroy all we have built in our conscious self as Life readies us for change and growth.
The godson might be about him, but is more likely concerned with the inner godson you carry within you. When you think about a child or a person you meet, you are only taking in your thoughts, impressions, and feelings about them. So many people do not realise that they have an inner child equally as powerful as the external person you know. You have taken in millions of bits of memory, lessons learnt, life experiences along with all the feelings or problems met by meeting or living with them, and they are what makes you the person you are. The memories and experience we gather unconsciously change us and are not lost. It is part of you and is symbolised in dreams as a person or event.
