The lighting throughout this dream was diminished,similar tothe lighting of dusk ordawn. In the first scene i was in a room tht had been split by a tree faling on it. My hidlren were with me, and they were playng and we were happy in spite of the cicumstances.An aunt came and left with the children and walked out of the roominto another openplace where eople had gatered,some I knew and others I didn't.I had the feeling everyone knew me though, and I sat next to a high school acquaintance who recently generously donated to a fundraiser I had forbreast cancer treatment. I wanted totalk to he,but found that I couldn't speak and I had to communcate byfeeling only. Another high school personcame and indicated tome to comeswimming. i went to the edgeofan (above ground) swimming pool and others swimming cameoverto invite me in the poll too. I began to undress,and looked down and noticed that I was wearing white undergarments. I went to enterandeveryone else got out of the pool. I walked further along,alone,and there were platforms in front of me connected by stairs, and airplanes were flying around too. A Rinpoche (whom I have come to distrust) was on one of the top platforms, and made eye contact with me. Other Buddhist monks were around. I turned and entered a very bright room and began to walk up a glass staircase that was leading up, over a very large body of water. The water was active, rolling in waves and was bright and clear. I grew afraid of the water as I was walking up and turned to come down, a woman wearing white was a few stairs below me. She told me she needed to do something to improve her teeth (I have worked as a dental hygienist for 10 years.) I reached the landing and was told that No one would be able to travel if they had contraband, so I was looking for a place to dispose of mine and an old monk took it away from me. I had the feeling he was going to tell the authorities so I begged him not to, but he did not respond. I turned and a medicine man was sitting on the ground, smiling at me, and looked up at the Rinpoche and told me that he will not look at him to transmit the blessing. I then woke up.I would love someone to look at this objectively for interpretation...Thank you!!
Hello, I am happy to help in interpreting this dream. It sounds like there are themes of being rejected, of not doing the right thing (especially with regards XX XXXXXXXX), and to beinig fearful of showing the real you - that if people/those in your religious group knew the real you then you would be rejected and unable to join them.
Do any of these themes ring true to you in your life (waking life/reality)?
