Part 1 of 3 – Clouds & Dreams

As I sit here writing this morning, the sun is rising from the east backlighting the clouds. The sun is still behind the east side of the valley and the clouds along the lip are golden.

The clouds 30 minutes ago were blue streamers then evolving in that cloud manner that seems to happen the instant we look away.


Dreams are like that to me.

Like clouds they move around my conscious when I sleep occasionally morphing into something meaningful, often not. Sometimes playful, sometimes serious are the thoughts that come into our minds. But like those clouds our dreams usually float by without being recognized too deeply.

Sometimes people dream a lengthy scene that makes sense without much thought, but last night I had three small dreams that grabbed my attention. I felt these were dreams I should hold onto and interpret. I am using them as inspiration for three blog posts and hopefully many responses from my readers.

Dream 1

Description of the scene: I am looking at a small hole in my chest and I see a slim brown tail poking out. It is not furry like a cat, or leathery like a rat but like a reptile; perhaps like a small gecko.

I tried to grab it but it is too thin and it disappears into the hole in my chest. I am forced to enlarge the chest hole to try to grab the tail. But I am unable to grab it until the hole in my chest is expanded and quite large like a shape of large book. Finally I can grab the creature which becomes a black and white creature that is cross between a fish and something less innocent.

It doesn’t twist or fight as I pluck it out and throw it away. Outside of me it lacks menace or effect. I never feel upset, or poisoned just irritated that I allowed this to grow inside of me as I feel it was preventable.

Interpretation: This is where I hope readers can help with responses.

I lay in bed and thought about this dream and wondered if it meant anything.

I wondered if this dream was about advocacy for myself. Whether that was an essential to having consistent health, or better health, or never complacent about speaking up, and instead rejecting anything that was not positive and healthy.

It is easy for something to take root that doesn’t belong, and I should be on guard.


As always I am grateful to you for taking the time to visit my blog. If readers weren’t a part of this, I would have stopped long ago.

    There is a great deal of turmoil in the electromagnetic energy field and it is easy to to take on something or someone else’s energy. You were removing it in your dreams. Envision filling yourself with the Light of Christ Consciousness and that will help prevent anything from “taking root”. Blessings to you! ❤

  2. Hi David, what an interesting dream, a friend of mine once said to interpret a dream, the dreamer has to identify the emotions felt during the dream. You said you had no fear, as if this intruder could not be deterred, just expelled once you noticed it’s presence. Maybe that’s part of it, you’re on the lookout for things that don’t belong? This could include thoughts, health, environment? The pandemic alone warrants such a dream…C

  3. Hi David,
    You have been missed!
    I love trying to decipher dreams. It can mean so many different things, perhaps growth and change and the acceptance of it.
    Love the pictures! Blessings! ❤


  4. Interesting dream, Dave. I’m no special dream interpreter, but my take is similar to yours. It’s as if something strange and unwelcome is trying to invade you; perhaps poisonous and toxic, but that could mean physical as well as emotional, i.e. negative self talk that prevents you from personal growth. Just my 2 cents.

    Hello Dave, good to see your photos again, by the way are absolutely stunning reflections and landscapes. I have a hard interpreting dreams myself. Sometimes I can’t remember dreaming and other times if I wake up during a dream than I can see it clearly. Dreaming is such a mysterious thing, that our minds can see and hear and have a story line at times as we sleep.
