Hello everyone--I had a strange dream last night. I think there was some type of accident near my home where lots of children were involved. For some reason, we were taking them into our home. When I say our home, it appears that I was living at my parents house which is about 200 miles from where I currently live. I'm not sure if in the dream I was an adult or what but in any event, we were brining child after child into our home to give them shelter. I mean there were dozenx of them! The interesting thing is, my dad was in the dream and he was very lovingly carrying the children in his arms and taking them upstairs and putting them to bed. These were children that ranged in age from babies to about 6 years old. In reality by dad died in 1988. He and I were very, very close and I miss him terribly. He was good with kids--more of a jokester and a big kid himself. My mom was no where in the dream. Now, I don't know if this is a different dream or if it was the same one but there was a very adorable little boy of about 4 years old. I'm not sure who he or where we were but there was some type of connection between the 2 of us. At one point he motioned me over to him, I leaned down and he whispered in my ear that he loved me. It was so touching and I told him I loved him too. I then woke up when my phone rang. What's even weirder, when I woke up I turned on the tv and there was a story (I think on the local news) where they were showing a baby who looked JUST LIKE the little boy in the dream! He had the same younger face as the boy in my dream. ODD!!!





Any idea what this means? Thank you!

I will give this a shot. There are so many things in your dream that could mean any number of different things based upon your current life situation. Not knowing these, I will say in general that for you to dream of your father with him playing the loving role that he did was a really positive thing. The fact that there were so very many children in your dream, all coming into your father's home, speaks of an abundance of love and a larger than normal capacity for love and caring. Normally, that many children, especially in a private home after an accident, would be a stressful and trying circumstance. Despite the abundance of children, it is significant that you remember your father carrying individual children very lovingly. Again, this speaks to the capacity to carry and love completely, one on one even though loving many at the same time. Not knowing you or your circumstances, this is where I'm going out on a limb, so forgive me if I am off-base. I feel that the fact that you have a very specific incident in either that dream, or a seperate but contiguous dream where a single child specifically calls you over and tells you, and only you, that he loves you is significant, and I think that ties in with the dream of your dad. Perhaps you are having doubts, or feeling at loose ends, but I feel this is confirmation that whatever it is in your father that made you be close and makes you love him still is also in you, just as strongly if not more. I also feel that the fact that after you awoke and turned on the television and saw a child resembling a younger version of the child in your dream serves a couple of purposes. First, by tying what you dreamt in with what you saw when you awoke, you were provided with an 'anchor' to help you recall the elements of what I believe is a very positive reinforcing dream, and the second purpose was to confirm to you that, yes, you did dream that and dreamed it for a reason. Sorry if I missed, and sorry I had to be so vague, but I do believe what I've said here to be true. Good luck to you.

On a totally spiritual note: Maybe you made a visit to the Other Side to see your father and the work he does now for children who pass over and are separated from their earthly parents. This is why it was his house and not yours. Your mother might be in a completely different place or still alive...I don't know. The dream sounds wonderful and comforting. Perhaps that little boy is a soul waiting for you to be his mom or dad (I cannot tell if you are a man or a woman from your name or dream).

I think the dream of taking in the children reflects your desire to love and nurture. You want to see people care for each other and develop healthy relationships. The father figure is the part of you that is protective and it reflects your concern for each relationship. Some relationships are older than others but you have a special devotion to each one. There is one in particular that stands out. There is a strong spirituality to this one. You feel cared for and loved as you are giving the same to others.

I dont know if you believe in the after live or not but It could be that u are dreaming of your father as spiratualy alive and he is welcoming gods children in to the after life ( I say this because u said the children was in an accedent and the one boy that said I love u , looked a lot like the one on the news) I dont know why the boy was on the news wheather he was missing or ect. but that is what it seems to me , sometime dreams can be straight forward. its really anyones guess!

I wont interpret really you only can.
my experience of dreaming of babies and especially ONE baby taught me that :

1. The baby can represent a grown up who is immature even if that grown up might actually have more potentials than the "parent"

Your dad died. He was your parent.

The baby is having needs. He is defenseless. Vulnerable. Despite the incredible Strength of Life, the speed of growth. Just the baby Feels and Needs on and on. He cannot talk. His language is vibrational since the baby perfectly FEELS when his parents take care of him or not. He expresses his needs his ways and his needs are tremendous: constant care

Your dad took care of babies. But he died. It could refer to your dad as the Living Spirit beyond death protecting You still. His memory inside you Teaching You to take care of those around you who might be immature grown ups needing attention and care...

when children appear in dreams they also refer to daily problems requesting lots of energy. little troubles of life.

The baby got no body control. The children got control.
it is here about a Graduation in Controlling our body emotions etc... It is once again about Growth.

Your dad still growths at another level
You do too at yours
He might now be doing another task
and helping you to achieve Yours

Helping you grow
like the babies grow
Maybe you got enormous needs right now
or you lack control at some level which you only know

It all depends of your situation
Maybe you are requested to Growth at some spiritual level represented by your dad.

Babies are the most wonderful and amazing Joy and Mystery. They help grown ups (biologically) to learn about their ability to give Love. When parents loose a baby, the baby might reveal to parents a kind of love they didnt know possible. the NEED to help other babies. To be altruistic.
To devote.

And babies children learn control from grown ups. discipine. Responsibility.

It is a fabulous interaction. Like Soul and Bodies in complete harmony. Not merely bodies feeding stomachs. Your dad loved you you will love your children. Chain of Love.

This dream tells you you will overcome any daily problem using the energy of love as tranmitted to you by your dad

I think some times we all have a since that detects when things are going or have already happened. And maybe the little boy knew you would identify him with your father as a symbol of love.....I do not know why the little boy choose you? That is food for thought.
