Can dreams carry its own message?

I'm still unsure on how to make of it. I'm not the type who easily breaks down in her dreams, but it caught me this time - especially since it involved the love of my life: dogs.



I dreamt that I was experiencing a difficult phase in life (dream meets reality?) when I'd always see a Golden Retriever around me. Although the dog was wearing a leash, the owner was nowhere to be in sight. It was like the Goldie was sent to cheer me up or soothe the negative emotions I felt because I'd feel much more peaceful after spending time with it.

Towards the end of the dream, I saw the same dog; it was wagging its tail furiously. Something in me suspected that this could be the last time I'd see the Goldie. I knelt in front of the dog and hugged it, whispering, "Yes, I know you've to go. Don't worry, I'll be fine."

Only thing I didn't expect was me crying my heart out after uttering those words - to the point that I woke up with tears streaming down in my face and shortness of breath.

  1. i've never had dreams quite that emotional before, but i hope that perhaps this dream provides you a space to release the emotions you have inside you, and hopefully allow you to heal and feel progressively better ...

    1. This is not the first one, to be honest, Sean... I didn't want to share about that because it's too personal for me to write it on a public domain. I'm assuming that it has to do with the suppressed emotions, me missing my fur-brother or probably me just being at a crossroads in life. =/

  2. I adore pets too & own a Shih Tzu. Pets do wonders sometimes, even in dreams. Do you own any pets? xoxo

    1. Yes, I used to, Shirley. =) It's just that moving countries made it hard to keep a dog. =(

      I've seen my Big Fat's legs moving while he was asleep, which made me wonder once or twice whether he's dreaming about running.

  3. I can't say I've ever woken crying from a dream. Jolted awake startled by a nightmare - yes many times.

    1. This is not the first time, though, Yum List. . . not sure why I'd wake up from a dream with tears, but I guess it is what it is. *sighs*

  4. I believe that our subconscious affects our dreams...

    That could be something related to that but I wouldn't be presumptuous enough to guess at what the dog means. Everyone would love a loyal companion by our sides.

    Hope you're doing well! <3

    1. I believe that too, HB. I suspected that the dream was heavily influenced by my emotions that day. I felt like I was carrying the world on my shoulder and not feeling myself. I'm just gonna chalk that up to academic stress and the change of seasons - for now.

      Golden Retriever usually means loyalty, but the fact that I cried upon seeing it changes things slightly. It may mean a loss of something precious or someone loyal to me, I wouldn't know, but dreams can be that weird at times. *cringes*

      I'm much better now, thanks! <3 I'm trying to redirect the negative energy into tutorial work, lectures and everything academic-related. =)
