Well, I'm not sure how to begin my response to your post, but it's such a fun subject for me. Doh! Okay, I'll just start with my own dream
When I was about twelve, I moved to the deep country from a quaint little suburbian town that I adored. Now, prior to the move, my parents joked
around with us about coyotes howling at night not realizing how terrifying that would be for me and my sister because they grew up in the country and
it was normal for them. I had about a five year series of nightmares about being out back (we had 80 acres) hiking and in broad daylight the coyotes
would see me and chase me home. Each time I had the dream, the dogs gained about a foot or so...it was an incredibly slow gain. One night at the end
of my dream sequence, I got infuriated, stopped dead in my tracks, turned around quickly, gave the coyotes the most evil glare and simply told them
(as if they understood) that i was tired of this crap! I was NOT going to deal with this anymore! And f*%$ OFF!!! ::blushes:: Well, the coyotes turned
around and walked slowly away with lowered heads (as if pouting), and the dreams ended. However, with the end of that dream came another series of
dreams that frightened me for years. Finally, I took my own fears, faced them head on...and another series ended and I began to fully question and
understand why I dreamed the things I did, what they meant to me, and now I very rarely have a bad dream, and if I do, I face it and end it. One of
the last bad dreams I had was about my bf. Unfortunately, when I met him he was nearing the end of his divorce, but it wasn't yet in the works. He
had left her on several occassions before, but when he and I met, he had enough and left her once and for all. Well, a couple of months into our
relationship, I fell in love with him fully, but I was afraid I was making a mistake based on how the relationship began. I dreamed he cheated on me,
but when I woke up, I simply confronted him with the dream and my insecurities. He convinced me it wouldn't play out that way, and I coped with my
own possibility of loss prematurely knowing that I would go on like I did after my own recent divorce and possibly be happier to be in complete
control. It's been six or more months since that happened and I haven't had the dream since nor has it been a weighing thought in my mind.
What I would suggest to you is to consider the possibilities such as:
- are you afraid of natural disasters (i.e. tidal waves and hurricanes)?
- do you love the ocean on good days but fear your love will lead to self-destruction?
- do you just detest there being any situation where you aren't in control?
- is this dream merely representative of past issues of bad luck or failure?
- have you always been drawn to the ocean yet (as stated before) always feared the consequence of a move?
Only you can think about this one long enough to figure out exactly where your fears lie, but based on the discomfort you feel on vacation, I would
definitely suggest there is an underlying fear that has to be faced. I would also think that you need to come up with a solution immediately such
- moving close to the coast but not so close that you fear in danger of tidal waves
- move to a home that has a good solid shelter or have one built at your current location (I think you said you already live near the ocean)
- consider moving near a great lake where there is an abundance of water activities but not the dreaded ocean fear
Again, only you can solve this.
I have to say that I doubt you can rely on past lives to be your scapegoat on this one. I too have pondered having had a past life, but it's my
personal belief that one can bring only positive from a past life and to think otherwise may contain a much deeper issue. However, that is just my
personal belief and anyone can feel free to have another. I feel we dream in this life to help us through this life.
Best of luck to you!
