One of my readers suggested that I ask my guides what my civil wedding will be like. So I did.
The first part of my dream, I don’t recollect much or understand. I was talking to my sister who is currently plotting her escape from her abuser (her baby-daddy and live-in partner of 5 years), and she was telling me something and she mentioned that when she went back to check, she was surprised that my mom was dead already (knock wood).
Somewhere in the ether between wakefulness and sleep, I became aware of the import of what she said. It upset me and I woke up trying to shake off being upset.
I went back to sleep and had another dream.
I don’t remember the first sequence, but I know it involved a couple, one of my best friends and her husband, and the color blue. Then I knew we were in the US, in a new neighborhood. I was with my other sister, the one supposed to get married this December and we came upon a neighborhood bakery, a small hole-in-the-wall-type one, and I was so happy they were selling cakes. It was like the kind of bakery in the US where they’ve been there for ages and sell super delicious cakes. I bought a slice and it cost $2.54, and I paid for it in coins. The coins actually fell to the floor when I handed it to the baker and I told her that I had given her the exact change. She collected it and said I gave the right amount.
My sister and I left the bakery and went to my mom’s apartment. She had just come home from I don’t know where, but I had the feeling that she came from work and we were little kids again. (That’s in contrast to real life where she is retired). We were telling her we found a bakery and that the cake just cost $2.54.
And that was it.
DREAM DICTIONARY: Here are some of the relevant meanings to symbols in my dream:
Consider also the metaphor a “piece of cake” or some situation that is easy.
To dream that you are buying a cake suggests that you have accepted the rewards and recognition you are getting for your work. You are learning to be comfortable in the spotlight.
If cakes are present in your dreams, it is usually a positive sign about the people in your life and the values you hold dearest. While the cakes in your dreams can sometimes be a sign of overindulgence, they are generally positive and well-meaning.
In general viewing a cake in dream is considered as a good sign to bring in positive changes in life.
To dream that you are purchasing a cake means that you have taken the honor given to you respectfully. To see cake cutting in your dream signifies that you are going to have a pleasurable time with your loved ones.
Dreaming of cake surely signifies that your struggle has come to an end and you are finely going to taste the success.
Dreaming of sweet cakes, is gain for the laboring and a favorable opportunity for the enterprising. Those in love will prosper.
To see of buying a cake in your dream means that your achievements will reflect to your family and thanks to these successes, your financial problems within your family will finish.
To see a bakery in your dream signifies richness and success. Your future will be an enjoyable, pleasant and filled with satisfaction.
Dreaming of a bakery can symbolise fortune, success, and richer futures, but don’t take the dream too literally. The bakery of your dream will, after all, be filled with people, objects, and of course, the creations of the bakery itself– cake, bread, coffee, etc. So all those dream elements will play a role, too, in what your personal bakery dream means for you and how to interpret it.
That said, dreaming of a bakery for most people will be a pleasant dream and is indicative of good things.
To dream of a going to a bakery represents a decision to use someone else to make having a good time easier. Only wanting to enjoy success or pleasure without having to earn it all yourself. A sign that you might be spoiled by someone.
Anything to do with money may suggest worries about finance, or an intuition of good fortune.
Because we call loose money ‘change’ in English, sometimes the coins might represent change in your life – small changes.
To dream of gold, denotes great prosperity and much pleasure derived from sight-seeing and ocean voyages.
Coins: Generally mean blessings or opportunities we don’t count or recognize
Gold Coins: Material/physical wealth indicated
So did my guides answer me?
Yes. I think my civil wedding will be an intimate but lavish affair. People will know about it/hear about it, but very few will actually be invited. I will be happy with its outcome and I was even told about how much it would cost. We would even have enough money to pay for it. Money will go to different suppliers, but in the end, we would have spent just enough.
That I showed my mom the cake after buying is means that she will be happy that my old burden and challenges, especially when it comes to finances, are gone.
My sister accompanying in the dream was because she is slated to have her church wedding December this year. That’s why she went to the bakery as well, but I was the one who bought the cake so I’m going to have my civil wedding first.
I’m still upset about my “news of death” dream. Maybe it’s just reflecting my sister’s worries or my own anxiety about her pending escape and her safety. I’ll ask around what this may mean. Hopefully, nothing really bad. Sigh.
But thank you, spirit guides, for answering my main question. 🙂
