For some people just to exist is a struggle. But there are so many struggles the dream might be pointing to. Struggling to earn enough; struggling for recognition; struggling to find and earn love; struggling against depression and despair; struggling against illness; struggling to find your way through the maze of life events; struggling to contain your anger about what happens around you or in front of you; struggling against the madness of some human actions; struggling to continue after the loss of a child or loved one; struggling to breathe; struggling to learn something – struggling.

What is your struggle?

You can find your way through such struggles.

I keep having this dream where I am struggling to see in my dreams. It’s like my eyes are half closed and I can’t open them wider and things are blurry. I have had this dream so many times now for so many years

A friend of my deceased mom told me she had a dream of my mom struggling and can’t be calmed down by her friend. In the dream her friend is trying to calm her by embracing her but she still won’t calm down. What would this probably mean? Neither of us her kids and her husband dreamt of her even once.

    Dear Ché – I will answer your friend so she and you can understand that it is not her deceased friend/your deceased mother who is struggling with something.
    Every image and person in your dreams is an expression of your own life process. As such it is alive and intelligent and is something sent to help you. A dream is like a projection from a movie projector, except that you are the projector.
    Everything you see as outside you is coming from you, your emotions, your fears, your beliefs, your joys and explorations and are all you, clothed in the dream images and drama. So when you dream of someone you should not feel you are dreaming about that actual person. As with most dreams, the person in the dream is not the person themselves, but is a collection of memories, associations and feelings about him or her.
    It is helpful to explore what you associate with your deceased friend for it will give you an idea of what part of you is struggling with.
    Another approach you can use is Power Dreaming for it can show you where the inner obstacle is and how to undo it.
    Good Luck!
    Anna 🙂

Last night I dreamed I went to a party at a huge house with hundreds of rooms. Some had friends sleeping in them, while others were full of people there for a party. I walked down hall after hall observing each room, a bathroom stands out in my memory as it was expansive with a big bathtub and I wanted so badly to go in, but knew I needed to keep moving out of the house. I went outside to the huge set of concrete steps leading into the house and blood started to pour of of the house in waves. I ran and jumped into a police van, while calling my husband. He was outside and was trying to escape the courtyard, while all that were inside were dying. I went to find my children, that were never in the house, but could not find my dog that had gotten lost outside of the house. While waiting for my husband I went to a house next to an ocean, in the room I waited in big waves were crashing on the roof. I woke up after removing myself from the underwater room and calling my husband again who was still struggling to find an exit.

Thoughts?? This is scary to me…
