Dreams can provide insight into our deepest thoughts. Using dream interpretation to explore dream symbols and uncover a dream's meaning can lead to a better understanding of ourselves.
First the back ground.
I feel I was close to my Father. I loved him dearly and he was a good christian man. When he had his heart attack and passed it took me a while to let go. I KNEW the burst would come and yet I delayed it till I felt, 'The Call.' His brother who had a long term illness passed away just after Dad.
It was after the funeral I was in the kitchen cleaning up after dinner, and I felt the PULL.
Now let me tell you that when I pray for a reason that concerns great meaning, I must go to water to complete this.
My family knew this. I'd not shed a single tear of my loss till this time.
I felt the pull and looked over to my husband and said... "It's time." And headed to the lake.
I sat for a while looking in the water crying feeling sorry for myself and my loss. I called out, "Dad you are so selfish.. You couldn't even stay for your own brothers funeral."
There was a brief silence and then (Daddy's voice) "But carla, I had to go first. I had to take him home."
I then recall he had doubts his brother was a True Christian.
I accepted this and said goodbye, promising I would take care of Mother. Then asked in another prayer of god to grant me a dream that I will forever be able to recall. A final memory of me and Dad together.
I was at Moms house looking through a magazine and the radio was playing. mom was in her bedroom laying down. There was a knock at the door.
I went and answered and though physically the person in no way had resemblance but it was Daddy. He was young, tall and slender. (A great deal younger than myself)
I greeted him with joy and said, “Come in Mom's in her room and she'll want to see you too.”
In a sad voice he said, "No Carla, I came back for YOU."
He came inside and I closed the door. He then took me in his arms and we danced a slow dance playing on the radio.
He held me tight hugging me and I knew this was a dream... yet I cherished the moment.
The music stopped and I a woke, feeling his presence fade.
A few days later I told my sister of this dream and she too prayed for a final visit. She told me he came to her at work.
Knocked on the door and asked her to come outside. She said "Okay, let me get my purse." When she looked back at the door he was gone.
I told her my interpretation... That he responded, and her description of this man was the same as mine... yet she KNEW it was a dream and like everything in her life, her priority was of her material things. Knowing this was a dream, knowing this was his spirit she had no need of her purse.
I don't need to have this interpreted. I only wished to share. I feel I am a Christian and I know this was a gift from God. We often forget our dreams but in my prayer I asked that this will forever stay with me.
And though I never gave it thought at the time, I later realized he gave me the one thing I wanted most. My fathers last gift, because I had NEVER danced with my Father.
Now that you've read a few dreams, we're sure you remember some of your own. It's fun to get it out... share your dreams, or
