I dream my entire life every night when I go to sleep. I am absolutely sure you do too! Dreams may mean different things to different people. And this is mine to share for all of you!
Most of the time, my dreams come in flashes of memory every time I wake up the next morning. Whether if it’s “me” being chased by the unknown or “me” struggling with falling teeth, I know there’s really a deeper story behind.
Most people tend to forget about their dreams as they wake up and just go on with life. But as for me, I must say there’s quite a selection wherein I get too attached. Sometimes, it feels like a hangover that you have to keep up with the images in your mind of what you have dreamt last night. And whenever a certain dream gets stuck in my head, I always have a feeling that it means something.
I remembered a part of this dream of mine wherein I was walking nearby a swimming pool. I guess it was sort of a celebration or perhaps the setting was in summer. I clearly remember I was wearing slippers and was dipping my feet in the water. After that, I just continued walking around the area and seemed like I was looking for someone or something.
I didn’t actually know what or who exactly I was searching for. And then suddenly, I began to notice that I was taking off my slippers. After that, I just left them at the edge of the pool and just continued walking while kicking my feet with pool water.
Everything kind of went into a blur after that. And then when my memory started to become crystal, I saw that there were lots of people. I guess I kind of saw my family and some of my relatives too. I suddenly got to them and realized I was conversing with them. It felt like it went on for too long not realizing I was barefooted.
Then it hit me, I was actually walking without any slippers on so I decided to go back where I left them. When I got back where it seems that it was the place I left my slippers, I realized that it was not actually there. I tried to look for it though and in a corner, I found a pair of slippers. But when I checked, it was not mine after all. I guess it has a different color and it does not really fit (I’m not really sure on this part of my dream).
But the thing is, I realized that my own slippers where lost somewhere. And then my next action just startled me. I wore that stranger’s slipper and just continued walking. After that, I woke up and it was a Saturday morning from last year.
From all of my dreams, this one really got me. For days, it got me wondering what it meant especially the part where I just took some slippers off like it was my own and just started walking (to life).
Because of that bit of curiosity, I decided to read more about dreams and how to interpret it. Basically, it’s just some things I searched on the net just to give me some ideas. Luckily, my searching skills just paid off eventually.
Based from various articles I’ve read, I learned that dreams may actually be symbols that represent something in your actual life. The dream I have with the slippers actually meant a major stepping stone that could be happening in someone’s life. The act of wearing one’s slippers is actually embracing that event and taking responsibility. And leaving one’s own slippers and wearing a new one means taking on a new role, for a much bigger responsibility that is about to take place in your life.
When these concepts came into me, I realized that I was also having a major event in my life. When I was having this dream a year ago, I just took my License Examination and was waiting for the final results. That time felt like a hanging bridge for me since I was in the middle from being a college graduate and to being a professional.
I didn’t know what my future will be back then since it all depended on my test result whether if I pass or fail. But thinking about the dream, I began to realize that maybe; I was ready subconsciously on whatever my future will be. I know for a fact that I am no longer a student and that soon, I will become a professional.
I also thought that perhaps, I am ready to take on the challenge if ever I will pass my test. Emphasizing on the part of my dream where I wore those new slippers, I guess I was trying to change my old ways. Moreover, maybe I was just letting myself move forward and get over with my past life. Nonetheless, it’s a major shift in my life.
So that’s how I basically interpreted my own dream. And like I said, it really paid off since I passed my test and I am now a proud professional!
On the contrary, maybe dreams may mean seeing future events and all those prophecy. Well, who knows right? Anyway, you can always believe what you truly believe.
