Crocodile Tears

Standard

It’s been a while since I’ve asked my guides for guidance through my dreams.   First of all, I’ve been busy with work.  Secondly, even though I’ve had dreams with messages, I couldn’t find time to jot them down here.

I’ve since had another cake dream, this time, more opulent because I didn’t only buy a slice like the last time.  I was in a buffet where they were serving my favorite strawberry shortcake for dessert.  It had pink whipped cream frosting on it and whole strawberries and it was delicious.  Best of all, even if I ate some, there were still lots more to be had.

But I already know the meaning of cakes, so I wouldn’t be able to tell if I dreamt it up because I knew the meaning of it already and wanted that to be the outcome/answer to my question or if it was really the answer.

Anyway, this time, I asked my guides a question before I went to bed.  I asked if M and I would get married this year.  Then this is what I dreamt:

I was in a travelling bus with one of my good friends.  She was asking me about something and, in response, I pulled out a clear plastic bag with a dried up crocodile head.  I wasn’t scared of it, and in my dream, it looked like a dehydrated fruit or, more accurately, dried fish that you could eat.  I told my friend that they tasted delicious and she seemed incredulous. That’s when I told her that I had lots more, and pulled out other bags with dead baby crocodile heads.

There was a scene where the bus stopped by the house of these former owners of the ISP (Internet Service Provider) that I used to patronize.  In my dream, it seemed like a decade passed since I last saw them, and I was surprised as well that that was our destination.  We were supposed to tour their house or something.  I don’t remember much about that dream segment except that we were talking about Virtual Asia.  Users fondly called it Vasia (Vah-sha) then, but in my dream, the owners pronounced it Vey-sha, which is, I suppose, is how it’s really supposed to be pronounced since it’s a shortened form of V and Asia. The funny thing is that I’ve never thought it odd, the way we pronounced it before, when all this time, we had it wrong.

Great Scott, subconscious.  You tell me that nearly two decades later?!?

I woke up rather bewildered and went on to try to decode my dream.  My first instinct was to get apprehensive since crocodiles are worlds away from having sweet dreams of cake, and considering the importance of my question, I was nervous that it might mean a no.  Crocodiles usually means danger or deceit, or like the title of my post implies, that someone’s faking it with you and lying for sympathy.

Truth to tell, I’ve had issues with everyone lying to me lately.  I’ve been disappointed about those people who did, but I haven’t made a big deal out of it because I’m still trying to figure out if maybe I’ve just become more adroit at spotting lies/liars because I’m more intuitive now or if they’ve been liars all along and I was so clueless that I didn’t notice.  The possibility that they’ve been like that all this time is the only thing that’s keeping my disappointment at bay.

Anyway, I think it’s a positive dream.  For one thing, I wasn’t scared of the dead decapitated baby crocs.  I even said in my dream that they were delicious, lol.

Also, my dream dictionary search has lead me to this:  Dreaming of dead crocodiles means extreme success beyond anything you can imagine.  And if that’s what it means, then pulling out more dead decapitated baby crocs bodes even better for me, right?

That’s when I stopped analyzing my dream and decided that my guides have indeed answered me.  They honored my request too and made sure that I wouldn’t doubt that the answer came from my subconscious since I have never dreamed of crocs before, didn’t come across one in the media recently.

Even the friend that was with me on the bus has some significance.  That girl, many years ago when I was much troubled and at a crossroads in my life, told me something that I’ve always held dear to my heart.  When I was plagued with uncertainty because I was moving to another country, giving up my career and everything to my name, including my social stature and whatnot, she told me that she wasn’t worried about me because I was like a cat.  I always landed on my feet.

I cherish those words to this day because they have given me courage when going through dark places.  And here she was, someone who purportedly wouldn’t be surprised if I got out of whatever skirmish I was in, and she was…incredulous.

That just gives so much credence to what the dead decapitated baby crocs mean in my dream.  And, again, I am awed at how my guides decided to answer this one.

Extreme success beyond anything I can imagine.

I sure do like the sound of that. 🙂  Thank you, Spirit Guides.

 

Let Them Have Cake

Standard

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:

CAKE

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.

BAKERY
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.

COINS
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.  🙂
