This particular dream has been going on now for probably about a year or more but, not very offten through out the year(s); I say years because it seems like it's been more than a year, every time I have it, I'm getting more and more confused in the dream.
Here's the dream..
I get a call from my XO (Executive Officer) in the military service I was in, covo goes something like this..
XO: "Staff Sargent (last name) why are you here?"
ME: " Hello, who is this ??!
XO: "Your commanding officer, from your unit~!"
ME:" ahhh.. sir.. I'm not in the military any more .., I was honorably discharged like 30 years ago~!"
XO: "get in here or you'll be AWOL"
He hangs up, I show up, get all my uniforms, all the time I'm completely confused, trying to remember what I need to do, I'm so far behind in my duties, I can't travel with the company to the training site..
anyone else have this type of dream.. meaning being in a former occupation (military/gov) and having it reoccurring .. ?
I'm no expert, but from what I've learned...
When ever you have a dream, first discern if it's a vivid (or a premonition, which latered will be accounted as deja vu), which is usually not the case with reoccurring dreams or if it's a symbolic dream. If it's a symbolic dream you must start by defining the symbols.
What did you XO represent to you, was he a mentor, was he a bastard, was he an acquaintance?
Was your rank and promotions important to you during your service? If so, are they still important now.
Is there anything else you've stopped doing recently, maybe a bad habit or stopped associating with certain people?
Are there any forces trying to drag you back to do something? Did you want to serve or was it forced by draft?
Is there something in your life you've neglected recently or have forgotten about or disconnected from? Like family or friends?
