Way to go for remembering so much detail!! I would say if you keep working at remembering, you could have this clear of a recollection every morning.
My trick is to lay still in bed with my eyes closed after waking and go through the events from freshest in my mind back, I will be surprised with
things I had forgotten every time. With dreams, the messages are usually (for me) in the clearest and most seemingly trivial details. The message
usually lies within whatever you remember the clearest, and perhaps not so much in the overall subject matter.
The detail in this dream that sticks out for me is exiting into the crowd of gospel singers and the woman in the wheelchair. This is truly out of
place and if you remember it then it must have some significance. I am a big believer in dream dictionaries, and I know a lot of people aren't, but I
feel like if I don't know the person and what's going on in their life intimately, I'm kind of crap at providing any insight without one. So here
is my shot at an interp.
Okay so you are in the mall. It's not your normal home but it's your home in the dream. You meet two women, one in a wheelchair. I would search my
mind for details of this woman. If she is someone you know, she could need your help in real life, if she is not she may represent some part of
yourself that is "disabled" or in need of some therapy. Really try to grasp who she is or what she was wearing even, if there was some type of
relationship between you or any colors that might stand out. It's representative of SOMETHING that needs your help.
You go searching for a book store, but you keep getting turned around. This is a hunt for information, clarity, wisdom. You keep getting lost, so
something in your waking life keeps changing in your search for answers on something, so you continue to get "Turned around". You do make it to the
bookstore, the shelves and books represent levels of your mind, so if you saw a ton of them you have very many layers to go through to get to whatever
solution it is you are seeking on your path, and some annoying circumstance keeps disorienting you.
The staircase usually represents your spiritual path or journey. I don't know if you were walking up or down, but if you were just in it and not
moving when the earthquake happened then I would say you are experiencing some kind of upheavel on your spiritual journey. Self-induced
sub-conciously, even, as you seemed to make this happen with your thoughts. Something has shaken you up and "frozen" you where you are on that
spiritual path. You do escape though, so it doesn't last for long.
The wonderful thing about your escape is that you escaped into a crowd of people singing gospel. I would say this signifies that just outside of
your spiritual shake up is a spiritual convergence. You get "stuck" in it, but you can't participate because of some overwhelming threat you sense
in your waking life to you and your family (Tsunami)
Tsunami's in dreams are indicative to some unconscious waking issue that is overwhelming you. That is the context to the entire dream, in the end
you seem to come to some sort of higher ground, being on top of the mountain you and your family have overcome this issue and feel safe, and
accepting. It's some sort of higher understanding of the problem, in that you know it is possible that it could still effect you, but for this time
you have overcome it and made peace with it.
So in a nutshell...Some overwhelming waking issue is under the surface and becoming a threat to you and your family. You are diligently seeking out
answers to help you with this, and your two guides or friends are with you. One is in need of your help, she can "get around it" but is still
handicapped in some manner (like I said, may represent something in you that is "getting by" but still handicapped by a problem). Something keeps
turning you around making it hard to get to your answers, once there you are overwhelmed and just want to go home because the issue is threatening
your family (perhaps you feel guilt for seeking answers as you feel it may neglect your family somehow?). You are on a path to some spiritual
awakening but something inside you keeps shaking it up and you are stuck at the same place. You will overcome this, and experience some spiritual
harmony once you have overcome the threat facing the family. In the end, you obtain higher understanding and your family is safe from the threat. I
don't know what to say about the State Farm Agent
it did make me chuckle though. I'd say this represents some sort of feeling that you
"can't get through" to your family concerning something, but they come around in the end.
Anyway that's my long drawn-out armchair dream interpretation. I am no professional, that's just how I'd look at it if it were mine
I may be way
off but I hope it helps!
