Probably still to do with going through the grieving process(and now worrying about my finances and facing form filling, probably a medical assessment)and once awake thoughts race through my mind and then getting back to sleep can be difficult. And yet until now, sleeping has not been much of a problem thankfully. I want to avoid sleeping tablets(besides they are not given easily by the Doctors at my surgery)and recent research suggest that they can contribute to other health issues including falls, confusion and dementia.
I had a dream earlier in the night which I am sure Mum was a part of but I cannot remember now how much she played in it and how clearly she was seen. But I can remember some of it here and things that I have talked of recently have worked their way into it...such as missing a bus that was going to take us on a tour somewhere and I managed to get it to return to give us the chance to board it after all. Well, that obviously has some connection to my letter and talking about the poor bus service.
Then I could not find my way to the pick up point and Mum so found myself taking a wrong turning and ending up lost in an old graveyard, I suspect that is to do with talk of Mum's laying to rest and my past worries about my own future health wise. Bit morbid isn't it? It probably only lasted a few minutes but you feel like a dream has gone on for ages.
I don't remember dreams much these days and have never looked up the meanings before but found this a few minutes ago...
dream that you are waiting for a bus indicates a temporary setback in achieving
your personal goals. If you miss the bus, then it indicates that an aspect of
your life is out of control. You need to slow down and map out a new plan."
"To dream that
you are at a graveyard represents the discarded aspects of yourself. You may be
fearing the unknown. Alternatively, the graveyard indicates a loss or a period
"To dream that
you are lost suggests that you have lost your direction in life or that you have
lost sight of your goals. You may be feeling worried and insecure about the path
you are taking in life.
Alternatively, being lost means that you are still adjusting to a new situation
in which the rules and conditions are ever changing."
There is more but they were the most appropriate points to what I remembered of my dream.
Interesting? Never been sure if I believe in interpreting dreams but then again, I don't know how I feel about spiritualism but there are so many things that are unknown and and that are difficult to explain away. What's that quote from a Shakespear play possibly Hamlet. "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
