what does it mean
« on: July 21, 2014, 01:35:10 PM »
i had a dream a few nights ago, although i cant remember all of it, the bit i can remember is, i walked out a large house, the path was very long in size and when i was walking down the path , there was a large white owl sitting on the fence with a old lady with white hair, the old lady was the size of the owl also sitting on the fence i didnt know the lady, the 2 of them was just sitting looking, the owl didnt make any noise, and the lady didnt say anything, what does this mean?

Pixxy - Dreams often use the strangest images to communicate with us. The do this because of what we feel about the images. For instance for thousands of years a white owl was seen as a messenger of great wisdom, something that could see in the dark and so represented intuition.

The old woman is a mother figure and in general she offers guidance and feeling wisdom gleaned from personal and cultural experience. One may even note from the wise old woman, the signs of deep wisdom that is a synthesis of what has arisen out of the pain and strength of the women in your family, stretching back through time.
She tends to appear in our dreams at times of great transition – perhaps because we need fuller access to our resources of insight and information at those times. During such periods of ones life, the aid these figures give can lead to greater self-expression.

She is small probably because you do not see her as a ‘big’ influence in your life - or because you associate her with the ‘little people’ full of magic.

Pixxy - I would like to ask you a question about your dream, I hope you do not mind.
I like your dream and especially the symbols of both the white owl and the old lady sitting on the fence resonate in me.

I read in Tony's dictionary what the meaning is of sitting on the fence, I discovered that it is even an english expression, which I did not know:

If you are sitting on the fence, it shows you attempting to avoid decision or action.

I do not know in what circumstances you received the dream and so I would like to ask you if it could be possible that the dream shows you that it is wisdom to refrain from any decision or action at this moment in your life?

Both symbols of wisdom - the white owl and the old lady - sitting on the fence remind me of Hexagram 64 the first line:

1.Don’t be tempted to rush ahead when there is so much opportunity here. Take in the situation carefully and watch for the right moment.

Could it be that you see/sense both sources of "intelligent guiding" - the white owl and the old lady - as equals, reason why the owl and the lady have the same seize?
