Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream

Zentangle-Tidal-Wave-DreamLast night I dreamt about a person who is causing great difficulty in my life.  I was very upset by what this person did in my dream, which mirrored real-life situations, and it was the straw that broke the camel’s back (remember that game?).

I said, “That’s it!  I’m done.  Do whatever you want to do…I DON’T CARE!”

I left the hospital room and waited for the elevator.  My son suddenly entered the dream.  I looked to my right and through the giant floor to ceiling windows I saw a tidal wave heading towards us.

The wave never crashed over us and I remember saying, “We’re in the curl.”  We started to walk away from the windows and I could feel the giant building come off its foundation.  The ‘hospital’ suddenly felt like a ship.

A helicopter appeared overhead and my son was able to get aboard.  He reached for me, but I was not able to grab his hands and watched as the helicopter sped away.

Someone in the crowded ballroom shouted, “We only have minutes to live!”

That is when I saw the waiter, in full formal attire.  He held a tray full of drinks and set out to deliver them.

I grabbed his tray, set it down, and said, “If we only have minutes to live, we may as well go out dancing!”

We locked hands and arms and proceeded to waltz from one end of the ballroom to the other.

And I don’t know how to waltz!

The dream was so vivid in every detail…in all my senses and I was never afraid.  I believe it holds an important message for me.

I decided to share it to see if anyone has ideas about the dream’s meaning.  

I send you all blessings as we enter December!  Wow!  Never saw a year go by faster ❤

  1. I don’t remember any dreams at night if I have them. I used to but not anymore. My daughter has several books on dreams but they tend not to be very helpful. Hope you figure it out. Let us know if you do. That’s quite the dream.


    1. Hi Marlene 😁
      Thanks…I think the dream was really powerful in many ways. Lots of it has started to ring a bell of truth. I, like you, stopped dreaming for many years…and I missed it! I wonder what it means when we stop remembering our dreams…will have to look into that. But this one was so vivid…so real. I can remember thinking…and feeling…seeing….smelling…feeling movement etc.

      I hope you are well…and in full swing for Christmas! Much love to you 💜💜

      1. Dreams of that intensity are more than dreams. You really should find someone who can help you understand it fully. I stopped dreaming when I stopped sleeping well. Full swing for Christmas is always a rush as I’m always way behind. Who knows, this year I may just get caught up. 🙂 Keep up the good work.

  2. Oh my goodness, Lorrie! The detail in this and the rapid “fire” different scenes that unfolded. I’d say no matter what the situation is you are free of harm due to YOUR decision of saying I’M DONE. And oh boy once you do say that and mean it, life will throw just about everything at you to change your mind to get back into FEAR. Another interpretation that came to me is … we just don’t know what the next moment brings so live life to the fullest and dance through it. Your dream inspired me to get up and dance through a walk in a park close by. “Hard day” today … So I thank you for sharing your dream because it encouraged me. FYI … I did NOT peek at any other responses so I have truly no idea what anybody else said. LOL MUAH! Much Love!!! 💝💝💝


    1. I also had a dream, one of my “premonition dreams” as I’ve come to call them. Very clear and the Message was clear as well. Someone from my family who I was thinking of opening my Heart to, this dream warned me this person is NOT who she wants me to believe she is. And I am not important to her. In other words as is the usual with my family, I would have ended up very hurt. Strange that we both dreamed. Huh. 🙂


      1. Yes…and my dear one I believe that your subconscious knows exactly what is truth. I am so like you…I “forget” easily and always think…oh…maybe this time will be different…and then it never is!!!
        Stand strong, Amy…you know in your heart and soul what the right thing is 💗

        1. THAT is the exact reason why this dream was so terrifying so I won’t forget. I like you think … this time will be different. I’m learning though that if people do not respect me or my life no matter who they are, they are not welcome in it. I’m no longer a sap or a doormat. (wink) I’m reading a book by Brene Brown called “Braving The Wilderness”. I highly recommend it! 👏🏼 5 stars!


    2. Thanks dear Amy! Yes…I agree with you that “fear” tries very hard to sneak back in. I am doing my best to “ride the waves” that are in my life right now. I’m good. It’s not easy but I know that there are peaks and valleys in life and I do my best to stay “up” through the times of adversity.
      I’m so happy that my dream could inspire you to dance in the park 😁😁😁 Giant smiles!
      My best wishes to you friend…and I send white healing light to brighten your day 💗💗

      1. Aw, Bless you, Lorri! Oh yes I contend with fear too but I shoo it away instead. I’ve actually said hello to it and made sure I’m no longer afraid of it. I’ll keep you close to my Heart as WE ride those waves together. I just sent a dose of Heart Hugs to you. Close your eyes and feel them. (BIG SMILE) 💝💝💝

  3. I an big about paying attention to dreams especially those that come in “technicolor” meaning vivid and detailed. My girls still call me to interpret these kind of dreams for them. I’m good at figuring it out for them because I know them so well and their individual issues….yours, all I can say is that it actually is a positive dream and the ending is actually moving forward in a life filled way…(your son is safe, so that worry is gone).

    Just some thoughts…have a great week!


    1. Ah! Yes, Kirt! I do so worry about my son…and I was so relieved in the dream that he took off to safety in the helicopter 😁
      And I, too, believe that the dream was positive in so many ways. But I particularly like how you said, “moving forward in a life filled way.” Beautiful!!
      Many blessings 💜
