Since I will be gone for a week, my mention of fathers day is a bit early.
This young father adopted me and his hubby as his parents. He himself began his experience of the joys and hardships of parenthood 3 months ago.
With this I like to encourage all fathers to be the best father you can be. A good father is a tremendous source of joy in a child's life, and his absence can be very painful.
A twenty-something song writer told his audience that as a 6 year old he would sit by the window at night, gazing at the stars, and wish that he "could see his father one more time."
Part IV - DREAMS
Wat do directions in dreams tell us?
Directions are important since they tell you if it is a good place you are heading, or a direction you would want to avoid!
Directions are in the context of your dream story.
That is why it is vital to write down these details immediately. You will be surprized that your dream will give you all these details LOL
When you make a right turn in your dream it is a natural turn. Not so with a left turn. It makes sense, when one thinks about it that most people are right handed - that is "natural" for most people. Sorry, left handed people you are in the minority, so a left turn is out of the ordinary.
RIGHT TURN - A natural turn or change; authority; strength of man
LEFT TURN -a turn out of the ordinary, or a supernatural turn or change; human weakness
Front and back almost speaks for itself. When you see the front of a house, or when you are
standing at the back door, or look in the rear view mirror.
FRONT - immediate, current, new OR future
BACK - past, unaware, hidden, memory
East and West is easy to remember.
The sun comes up in the East, and goes down in the West.
Once I had a dream that played itself out being on one of the islands of the West Indies - it is still Dutch property. While I was born in Indonesia, then a Dutch colony and called the East Indies.
The message of the dream to me was that I had come full circle, because I live now in California, not far from the islands of the West Indies ( Curacao, Bonaire, etc.)
East - first, beginning, birth
West - end, grace death
North and South. I told you in one of these parts that I had a dream where I went South, and it was disappointing - a deal gone sour.
North - judgment, battle
South - world, temptation, trial, deception, corruption
The type of vehicle you see in your dream tells you the involvement in a certain kind of organized structure. Something that brings you from one place or level to another. Sorry my English is too limited to be able to say it in a clearer way. But if you'll read on, you'll catch my drift.
A BIKE is showing the works of a single man's endeavor. The focus is on much human effort.
A MOTORCYCLE - independence, rebellion, selfish
A CAR - a person
A VAN - or stationwagon - natural family or fellowship
A PICKUP TRUCK - natural work
A BUS- working together; sight-seeers
A MOVING VAN - change
A TRACTOR - powerful work
A TRAIN - continuous, unceasing work
A ROW BOAT - working out one's life's problems
A BOAT - support
A SHIP - a big structure/organization, capable or influencing a large number of people
A BLIMP - weak, powerless
A HELICOPTER - an individual's mission; versatile
A PLANE - a person or work (job, business)
TIRES - where the rubber meets the road
TRANSMISSION - change of purpose of direction
AUTOWRECK - strife, conflict.
When you think about the meanings, it is actually self-explanatory. The type and size of the vehicle, what it is made for, all tell what kind of structure is meant in your dream. A small vehicle symbolizes a small one man operation. A big ship need many skilled people to get to its destination, while a sail boat needs one or two people.
Not too long ago one of my friends called me.
She asked me point blank, "What kind of change are you in?"
I was perplexed, because hubby was the only one who knew about our moving plans.
I asked her, "What did you exactly see?"
She responded with, "I saw you driving a car, and you were handling the stick, and moved it from second to fourth gear."
I asked her some time to think about my answer.
When I called her back, I did not tell her what kind of change I was involved in, but I did say,
"Not only are things changing in my life, but I think the message is that things are going to accelerate as well." And told her that especially the acceleration was important for me to know.
Now I am going on a week of vacation, dear bloggie friends. So, hope to come back with loads of material to paint. Don't know yet whether to continue every end of the week with "dreams", or I should give it some time to let you digest all this stuff. Please, give me your suggestions while I'm gone.
