Another apocalyptic dream... This took place at the 'end' of the Earth. Most of the Earth was flooded. I was standing on an Egyptian structure on a new beach-front. It wasn't a pyramid. It was a beautiful sunny day but the oceans were rapidly rising and water was slowly making its way towards the structure and to drown the rest of the Earth. A few of us remained inside this alcove talking about what was happening. A man who seemed very wise knew what was going on. He said the whole Earth will drown and we would all die. Fear sunk in at the thought of inevitable death. I wasn't ready for this shit. I was afraid of dying. He said that the waters would stop rising once the angel's tomb was submerged. I stood there confused and looked to my right. Against the wall stood a sarcophagus. It was in the shape of an angel.. wings and everything. At this point the water was just below our feet. We grabbed the sarcophagus and threw it towards the water. It bounced off the concrete and opened up for a split second and then closed. The angel lay inside with his arms crossed. He was wearing arm bands. He was very tall and very muscular, like a warrior, unlike a stereotypical angel. He floated out into the water and then I woke up.



To dream of the apocalypse, signifies an emotional and dramatic change taken place within. The dream may also indicate the end of one kind of lifestyle and the beginning of another.

To dream of Egypt, indicates the roots and core of your own emotions and spirituality. It suggests of a time in life where things may have been simpler.

To see the beach in your dream, symbolizes the meeting between your two states of mind. The sand is symbolic of the rational and mental processes while the water signifies the irrational, unsteady, and emotional aspects of yourself. It is a place of transition between the physical/material and the spiritual.

To dream that you are on the beach and looking out toward the ocean, indicates unknown and major changes that are occurring in your life. Consider the state of the ocean, whether it is calm, pleasant, forbidding, etc.

To dream that you are in a flood, represents your need to release some sexual desires. If the flood is raging, then it represents emotional issues and tensions. Your repressed emotions are overwhelming you. Consider where the flood is for clues as to where in your waking life is causing you stress and tension. Alternatively, the dream indicates that you are overwhelming others with your demands and strong opinion. Still another interpretation could be your desire to wipe everything clean and make a fresh new start. To see a gentle flood in your dream, indicates that your worries over a certain matter will soon be swept away.

To dream that you feel fear, indicates that your achievements will not be as successful as you had anticipated. You are experiencing anxieties in various aspects of your life. The key to overcoming your fear is to discuss them and deal with them openly.

To see tombs in your dream, signify aspects of yourself which you have kept hidden and buried away.

To see angels in your dream, symbolize goodness, purity, protection, comfort and consolation. Pay careful attention to the message that the angels are trying to convey. These messages serve as a guide toward greater fulfillment and happiness. Alternatively, it signifies an unusual disturbance in your soul. Angels may appear in your dream as a result of your wicked and mean-hearted activities.

To see water in your dream, symbolizes your unconscious and your emotional state of mind. Water is the living essence of the psyche and the flow of life energy. It is also symbolic of spirituality, knowledge, healing and refreshment. To dream that water is rising up in your house, suggests that you are becoming overwhelmed by your emotions.

The fear of the inevitable was the main theme in this dream. The fear I had was an indication that I'm not fully prepared for something in my waking life. I'm about to go back to school. I'm waiting to register for classes. I feel I'm prepared but there may be other things I'm repressing. Bad habits, unwise spending, etc. Even though the angel in my dream was dead, I believe he represented a sacrifice. That if I want to avoid the fear and feeling of being overwhelmed by the coming flood, I need to step up and make a few sacrifices. I totally agree with my subconscious. I've been having a lot of apocalyptic dreams lately, which means I'm on the brink of another big life change. And it's true. I am. And this dream ultimately is a reflection that I still have work to do if I am to survive the changes. The old, lazy me has to be killed off so I can become the strong individual I'm meant to be.

Further, the dead angel may represent my lost innocence and purity. But all hope is not lost. I have to forgive myself of the past and just.. let it go. Let the past sink in the rising waters so that when this change comes, I will stay afloat and not go down with it. The waters will wash away the old sins, pain, and negativity and I'll have a fresh start.

♫ Give away the stone..
Let the oceans take and transmutate this cold and fated anchor.
Give away the stone..
Let the waters kiss and transmutate these leaden grudges into gold.

Let go... ♫

"The Grudge"

Great interpretation! Can you do mine? I don't remember many details but I'll give you what I have.

It was the birthday of an old friend, but someone I haven't been able to talk to in months, and I was trying to figure out whether or not to send him a message saying happy birthday. I deliberated for a few minutes, weighing the consequences. Then, I suddenly realized I had missed his birthday by a week. I looked at a calendar and it said November 27. Then the dream ended.

What do you think?

Is that his real birthday? What are the circumstances that you haven't talked? And how did you feel in the dream?

Anonymous said...

No, it's a couple months off from his real birthday. I felt anxious, Then disappointed. The circumstances are that I can't talk to him because it would make him unhappy.

Well perhaps it would make him even unhappier if he knew that November 27th is dangerously close to a certain anniversary of yours.
