By and large, the dreamer is the final authority on the meaning of the dream. What's more,
1) The man who said, 'your not done working yet...' to me that means that i havent yet done whatever God's plan for me is.
makes perfect sense in light of what you said about your beliefs, the circumstances in which you had the dream, and the content of the dream.
I would, however, like to say a few things about your second item. In your report, you said,
i later realised the bright light was from someone turning the light on in the room, but i find it irrelevent (sp?) because if this was
something spiritual God could easily use an outside source the enhance the dream.
Maybe not quite irrelevant. The phenomenon that something from the dreamer's actual physical situation shows up in the dream is called dream
, searchable. So far as I know, dream incorporation is uncontroversially an authentic sleep phenomenon.
So, the light in the room where you are sleeping went on. Then what happened in your actual physical situation? Well, you were dark adapted, so the
light hurt. Reflexively, you tried to avert your eyes and, very likely, tried to turn your head. But you were probably in REM sleep. So, your eyes
continued their involuntary motion typical of that condition, and your neck, if it turned at all, did so with a much greater lag than is usual.
So, you experienced a mismatch in efference (what you told your muscles to do) and reafference (what you perceived that your muslces actually did).
And I think that that mismatch got incorporated, too. Within the context of the already ongoing dreamscape, an airplane in flight, spiralling out of
control while not changing the intensity of the light is a fair restatement of your actual condition.
So what is remarkable here, IMO, is that even though you woke up from this, you woke up because the light was on, not as a reaction to a
"nightmare." At least according to your report, you didn't feel frightened.
Now, maybe you did feel frightened, and just didn't say so. But if you're looking for a "message" in all of this, then it's in your emotional
reaction, positive or negative, to the dream-incorporated elements, or maybe what you thought about the situation before you woke up, and not that
those elements were present in your dream.
In my opinion, of course.
Thank you for your service, and thank you for posting your dream.
