Out With My Dead Mother
would like to know what my dream means as it was so clear that it felt real.
dreamt I was eating out with my daughter and my mother who died in October 2011
walked in but only I could see her. When I told my daughter this she said she
couldn’t see her and I had a conversation with my mum. She said she loved me
and told me to keep in my mind what she was going to say and all she managed to
tell me were 2 numbers. When I hugged her I realised I was hugging my daughter
(also not that in life my mum was not the hugging type and we were not on
speaking terms these past couple of years) and we left the restaurant but before
we did we had to clean some of my dog’s poo from the floor. We never take the
dog out with us to eat but we did that day and the dog i have was my mums which
I kept after her death.
thanking you in advance
you for sharing your dream with us. Since you mention that you are your mom were
in non-speaking terms before she died, then I assume there were a lot of
unfinished business and a lot of things left unsaid. Dreams are often a tool for
you to help resolve some of these issues that were left hanging.
you were hugging your daughter thinking it was your mom, it is a symbol of
forgiveness and letting go of all the negativity. It also represents the legacy
that your mom is leaving. Somehow aspects of your mom lives within your
mom's dog being in the restaurant is very symbolic. Cleaning up the dog's poo is
analogous to a release of some negative emotions. You are able to let go some of
the issues that you were holding in.
Overall, the dream is rather
common dream themes: chase
