I had a really nice, unique, one-of-a-kind dream. It’s not the kind you dream often, and to be honest, I’m still mesmerized that I could even dream such a thing.
Let me fill you in on a little something before I start rambling about my dream: I was researching for articles for one of my projects (IMC, to be exact), and I came across this blog by this lady who calls herself ‘witch’, because her blog name is aptly called iamthewitch.com. So as I was searching for articles on food in Kampar (I came across her blog about Vegas Kitchen as I was searching), I came across this blog of hers, and decided to explore further because I wanted to know what her name was, to put in my article. So as I was searching, I clicked her tab labeled ‘Travelogue’, and clicked the link that said ‘Maldives – My Honeymoon’. She went to this hotel in Kandooma, and it was absolutely GORGEOUS, I’m not even kidding. (Go see her blog NOW, I’m telling ya!)
So yeah. I did marvel at the beauty of it and all, but I never really did think much of it. Especially after reading how much per night that hotel cost. >_< You can read about Witch’s honeymoon here, and start drooling and crying over the fact that you might never get to go somewhere so beautiful.
I’m sorry, I kid. Or not. x]]
So what did I dream about?
I don’t remember much in the beginning, all I did remember, though, was that the dream started off with me near the shores of a beach, and me telling someone (who in my dream, I guessed was Edward.. I dunno, it just felt very much like it =B ) that I wanted to swim with the dolphins.
And yes, I VERY MUCH want to do that in real life too. It has been on my… list of ‘Things To Do Before I Die’, if you will.
Anyways, said someone said that he could do just that for me. Needless to say, I was bloody well excited. We got on this boat that wasn’t really a boat.. More like a sampan-ish kinda boat, actually (which was a little sad.. maybe?), and set off to sea. I remember that the boat was sunk in a little, so that the water was just inches from sploshing in. I also remembered feeling slightly nervous about being so close to the water; because we were in the middle of a huge ocean – I’ve always had a fear of drowning or being stranded in the middle of a vast sea or ocean. >_<
So anyways, the boat came to a slow in some sort of.. weed-ish marsh-ish kinda place, and I asked the guy…- oh fine, let’s just call him Edward to make things easier, k? =.=
Ahem. So. I asked him, confused, if this was the place to ‘swim with the dolphins’ (it was quite.. ok, VERY off from the surroundings where one would swim with the dolphins). He said no, and something about having to do something… and then he whipped out a guitar, and started strumming to a melody and humming. =_=”
I was confused, but then the dream sort of ‘cut’ back to the beautiful sea/ocean, and I saw this little.. swimming pool hut-ish kinda place. Something like the little.. hut thingamabob where they sang 16 Going On 17 in the Sound Of Music. xp
The water was crystal clear (no pun intended, really), and our boat slowly approached the hut. I saw him get down, and the water was only up to his waist. So I got down as well, and looked around, trying to spot any sign of dolphins around.
I didn’t have to look for long. Within seconds, I spotted dolphins swimming close to the surface, towards us.
I can’t describe the feeling I felt at that moment. Even in my dreams, I felt it and it was unforgettable. I reached out to pet them; and I felt as if I could see them smiling. I felt so happy; so at peace, it was indescribable at that moment. Oh, and I also saw and petted a seal! No idea what that meant, though. xD
I also remember getting sort of angry with him (said ‘Edward’, not the seal^^), and when I looked down at the seal, it had a sad sort of expression, and it’s eyes were as if it was trying to tell me something, but then it just swam away. T_T
Ok, so the dream has been bugging me since I woke up from it this morning, so I did a little research on what it could mean. Here are what I’ve found:
For the dolphin dream: http://www.dreammoods.com/dreamdictionary/d2.htm
To see a dolphin in your dream, symbolizes spiritual guidance, intellect, mental attributes and emotional trust. The dream is usually an inspirational one, encouraging you to utilize your mind to its capacity and move upward in life. Alternatively, it suggests that a line of communication has been established between the conscious and unconscious aspects of yourself. Dolphins represent your willingness and ability to explore and navigate through your emotions.
To dream that you are riding a dolphin, represents your optimism and social altruism.
To dream that a dolphin is dying, indicates feeling of despair. You are feeling disconnected.
For the seal dream: http://www.wikihow.com/Interpret-a-Dream-Involving-Seals
- Is the seal playful and helpful? If so, it is indicative that the seal is wishing to take you through a guided tour of your imagination and is nudging you to take heed of what your creativity is capable of. If you followed it, your dream should have been a very interesting one indeed. Much of the meaning of such a dream will devolve from what else occurred in it as the seal took you around. The role of the seal here is to open the possibilities to you and to gently remind you that you might not be making the most of your talents.
- Alternately, is the seal beguiling and alluring but does not seem to want to take you anywhere helpful? Does the seal seem to have an agenda to nudge you to somewhere that you find unpleasant or demotivating? If so, this is indicative that the seal is behaving in a deceptive manner. In you waking-life, this could be an indication that somebody is deceiving you, or that you are deceiving yourself about the value of something that you are doing. It may also mean that you have aimed too high and that you are falling short with bad consequences. Lower your aim and be content with what you already have in life.
Heh. I just had to look it up. x]
