Goodbye Dream

Last night I had a very vivid dream....and I know it is a bit strange, but I don't think it was for me, so I'm gonna share with all of you.

I dreamed that a child had died, a little girl. I had her in my arms, she was gasping for air, but then passed on, there was nothing I could do, but knew it was meant to be so. I was trying to find her mom desperatly trying to find her mom. There was just a real sense of urgency, so it made me frantic.

I found her grandmother and handed her the child, and said to her "She did not get to say goodbye, she wants to say goodbye" and the grandmother rocked the child in her arms.

I still had to find the mother, and when I did, I tried to hand her her child.
She refused to take her..mostly out of pain I think.

So I told her "She wants you to tell you goodbye, she did not get to say goodbye" and the mother shakes her head in denial, and says "How do you know, you do not know that"

Then I saw her necklace, and it was a dragonfly.

"I can tell you why you wear that necklace"
and she stood there stunned because the necklace had meaning, something she never told anyone.

"When you were little, you used to watch the dragonflys, you like the color of the wings, and bodies, and you finally were able to catch one, and you accidently tore off it's wing. You felt terrible, and never caught another dragonfly again, but continued to watch them untill this day"

Her mouth hung open.

"Then your grandmother called for you, and she made you grape soda (or a slushie) ."

After that, the woman took her child and wept, and said goodbye to her baby.

And that my friends was my dream

Could the little girl be the little Heidi that was afraid to get attached to dreams or was afrid to be disappointed in dreaming? Perhaps her mother in this dream is you, who is now open to HOPES and DREAMS and HAPPINESS. The dragonfly on the necklace might have been representative of the last hopes of your dreams... and now you've grown back into hoping and dreaming, leaving that part of the little girl in you behind.

Just my 2 cents.

thats an a amazing dream- dragonflies are about seeing past the illusions that so many of live under.
I think someone close needs to forgive themselves for the loss of child, new beginning, dream or hope- something like that.
Its a beautiful dream of reconciling with a difficult past and the dragonfly is representing to you that it is a spiritual dream.
It was the final chapter and the book is now closed- you wont have the dream again .
