After my 27-year support to a needy man, my marriage came under so much pressure that I knew I would crack if I remained. I experienced one dream during the time when I questioned the morality of breaking my vow and saving myself. I guess, my emotional state pushed the dreams to the forefront of my mind and gave me total recall.
One fateful night, I sank into slumber.
Wearing a red cape, I walked with a slow measured pace past round dwellings made of shaggy hide and twigs. People went about their daily chores without noticing my proud bearing. When I reached the coast, I stood on the sand. From the sea, three unrecognizable beasts emerged and came toward me. I stood unflinching until the dream dissolved.
Now, after following ancient history with a passion, I know that similar Celtic dwellings were made by early man in Britain. I think the three beasts might represent those from the bible, Revelation 13. The fact that they didn't frighten me showed I could be brave when standing alone.
About five years after that, I made the decision to leave Australia and find a job in England. I knew nobody in the country, but my grandparents had lived there. First, I had to face my fear of leaving loved-ones behind and coping alone. I made the move and have since remarried and live a happy life.
What important dreams can you remember? Have any come true?
