Wedding Dress/Funeral Dress & Aware of Dreaming
« on: August 07, 2012, 05:23:57 AM »
I just posted yesterday that I haven't been remembering my dreams and that I have mainly been having nightmares - until now...

Last night I had a dream that I became aware in the dream that I was dreaming and I felt that whatever I was experiencing was important. I think I had a breakthrough considering the past few months I haven't hardly remembered my dreams and every day when I wake up I don't even want to as they felt horrible and were nightmares.

So in this dream I was in a bedroom and pick up a white wedding dress that I thought was beautiful even as for the most part the material was lace and entirely see-through and I thought it was really nice. I was glamored by the dress and knew it was for someone else (a new friend in waking life who is about to marry and who is very petite). But I tried on the dress anyway. It was too small for me but I was able to fit it on, and just as I did and looked in the mirror and I see myself in the same kind of dress but it was in all black and was a funeral dress with a lace veil that covered my face and with a fancy black flower bow in my hair kind of thing.

As I noticed that the dress changed I was totally aware that I was dreaming and felt empowered by what I was seeing. I felt like a woman and I felt confident in my sexuality. I looked at myself in the mirror in that black funeral dress and I could see my breasts and I was not insecure about any of it or hiding like I might in waking life, nor was I sad or feeling any loss during the whole experience.

Any ideas as to what all this means anyone???

Nightowl,

Your dream has been on my mind, which I am grateful for because mine have been nightmarish lately.

I am thinking that the see through lace of the white dress implies exposing your vulnerabilites.  Your positive feelings about the "funeral" dress makes a funeral seem like a different kind of wedding.

Putting on the white dress or role that exposes vulnerabilities, and if you do not react in fear and project those fears onto others,  i.e. expose your vulnerabilities while protecting yourself, you can access your own sense of being grounded as a woman.  The down and dirty earthy sensual creative side...a gift to yourself. 

I am also thinking of nature in this regard.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful dream!

Christine
