I've been having this dream for a few months now, probably at least once a week. I am usually in a meeting this can be at my work, with friends in my voluntary job or in the school PTA meeting. Everything is going well until I am asked to speak about something which I was asked to find out about in the previous meeting!! I am totally unprepared and have completely forgotten that I had to provide the information, I feel embarrassed and try to talk my way out of it, I often wake up sweating and usually sitting up in bed. Last night my husband said I was saying "oh no" in my sleep.

I can't work out what the dream means, I am always very organised and always prepared when I'm in a meeting.

This dream is showing you that you ARE unprepared for some emotional or spiritual experience or event that you are to encounter. It is given so you can ask God to help you become prepared...what is it that you still need to learn or do so that you can receive the greatest benefit from this experience? Ask Jesus.

Your subconscious is presenting this dream to you over and over again, because you haven't figured out the message yet. I think you are a very busy and a very active person, and you take your many responsibilities very seriously. It is a matter of pride to you to be on top of everything. So much so, that your greatest worry is making a mistake. Your self-image requires you to be "perfect" and you would die of embarrassment to make a mistake publicly. It seems that the major feeling of the dream is worry, anxiety and fear. Face the fear: what would happen if you DID make a mistake? Instead of fearing being unprepared, make preparations for that eventuality. What's wrong with saying, "I'm sorry, I could not obtain this information for this meeting. May we table it until the next meeting?" Or, "I'm sorry I don't have that information yet, but I can present it to the CEO and Secretary by next Tuesday." Or, "I've found that due to time constraints I need an assistant with this project." Or keep a litle notebook with you at all times and make lists. Simple. No-one will think less of you. You are probably admired for how much you DO accomplish! I think that if you "prepare for being unprepared," you'll find the dream will no longer haunt you.
