Dreaming of a Gift

images-45

Dreams are messages about our lives.  It’s communication from the spirit world that helps you resolve issues in our day-to-day lives. I start to analyze my dreams while I’m having them.  Recently, I quit my job.  It was a job that I had been doing for over 27 years.  While it was difficult to do, I found it liberating at the same time.

Shortly after giving my notice, I had a dream and it went like this:

I was holding onto all sorts of items and things.  My arms were full.  In front of me was a big beautifully wrapped gift.  It was red with a big white bow.  I wanted to pick it up and hold it, but my arms were full.

As I was putting something down, I realized that this dream was about my job.  I needed to let go of it in order to get the gift.

This dream was conformation that I had done the right thing and given up my job.

Dream-Where’s Baby Alia?

I was dreaming that I had lost my baby or I had some how forgotten my baby. Where’s baby Alia?

I found her on top of a large piece of furniture.  She was getting into everything.  How did she get up there?

I pulled the baby down wondering how she had gotten out of her bed?  I went to her room and the crib had been destroyed.  The side rails had been broken an obvious escape route.
