Heart to Dream

 I don't know about you but when I dream I see, smell, taste and feel as if it actually took place. Last night was no different although by the end of it I recognized a common theme had strung throughout the dream. While traveling through what seemed like a movie set of Harry Potter combined with Gone with the Wind. I know I know but it was a dream and dreams always make sense, right?  Anyways; I moved from one place to another in all forms of transportation. I vividly recall boarding a train that said 'Heart Lines' on the side of the boxcar with this huge beautifully hand carved wooden heart on it with scroll work around the name. Then I saw that the tickets had hearts on them. After leaving the train I met up with some friends. Friends I haven't seen in years and years; way too many years. It was all so real, although the timeframe was more like the late twenties or early thirties and it took place in England ~ a place I've never been, but I sure was last night. My friends and I went shopping, strollng through some beautiful little shops. We passed some trees and without any mention of it I noticed a heart carved in one of the trunks. That was when I first noticed my friends locket hanging around her neck.

I still hadn't made the connection of the heart theme but it was becoming  more evident to me that I was seeing several of them, one right after another. I next noticed them subtly hidden in the brown and gold uphostered tapestry hanging against the wall, in the jewelry cases where one would expect to see them, in clothing hanging on racks, on book covers. Hearts had even been woven within the linen tableclothes.



We stopped for tea and when it was served the waitress set a beautiful antique floral teapot before us ~ with a heart hidden in the flowers and then she set down a plate of complimentary cookies. Hearts!  
I made no mention of this to my friends but by now I had recognized a definate theme being made very apparent to me. Just as I was about to share my discovery with them ~ I woke up!  It was a beautiful dream but still somewhat mysterious!

Your subconscious or higher self or guardian angel - whatever you want to call it - was trying to reach you with some message. Don't you just wish you knew for sure what it was?! I get SO frustrated when the message is almost palpable, yet so uncertain of the meaning...

When is the last time you had your ticker checked??? Not that there would be anything wrong with it but with the family history I would rather be safe than sorry. Or maybe you are jumping back to Valentine's Day and all the sweet romantic things that go along with it! Love and miss ya!

Sara, thanks for your concern but I had my heart thouroughly checked about two years ago and had it listened to and blood work done just a month ago. All is well in that department. I think its because I've been thinking of romance! lol

Sounds like it was a nice dream. I don't believe I have ever had one like that though. No theme dreams here. Now I have to go and look up what it means when you dream of hearts.

Nice dream. Who were the long lost friends. Anyone this older,wiser sis might know? I hate when a dream abruptly ends. Have you ever tried to fall back to sleep to finish the dream?

I love a pleasant dream. Sometimes I don't think of my dream until a day later.
This one sounds so real, funny how things seem normal in a dream but strange once you are awake.
Good entry!

Here's something from the Bible about dreams - you may already know - but I find it interesting. Acts 2:17 "And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:" Sine it says that "old men shall dream dreams" - Does this mean you're getting old? ☻ ☻ ☻

I just love that Fred ... I knew he'd get to the answer you're seeking. YOU'RE OLD... lol But you're not alone; because you know I dream just as vivid as you do... but I have some really crazy dreams.

A vivid dreamer too, I hear you and think it was a lovely 'heartfelt' dream.

Denise said...

That is a beautiful dream, and so vivid. I rarely remember mine. Pretty heart pictures in this post.
