Last night I had the craziest dream or… dreams, I think it was more than one, bits and pieces are still coming to me, but what I remember most is being surrounded by lots and lots of green food, enough to fill a room.
Before I went to bed I was thinking that I need to eat healthier. For the past 20 years I've had acid reflux disease, which has been manageable with medication, exercise, and diet but lately I've had a strange taste in my mouth. Since I've been more stressed-out than usual and haven't taken time to eat properly, I suspect my reflux has gotten worse and what I taste is bile.
So last night, standing before the bathroom sink, gagging while trying to brush the taste off my tongue, I wondered what I could eliminate from my already reflux-friendly diet to help my situation. Half-jokingly I asked God if he knew – he offered no immediate response. Feeling dejected, I brushed my teeth, flossed and went to bed.
In my dream I was preparing a meal to serve guests. When I looked around the kitchen to see what I had prepared I was surprised to see the room covered by dishes overflowing with leafy green vegetables. When I made my way from the kitchen to my guests, I found them gorging on a giant congealed glob of macaroni. I was disgusted by how thick and heavy the pasta looked, and then suddenly I was on a train. That’s where it gets weird, with one dream ending and another beginning, I think. Anyway, message received God, I will add more healthy greens and lay-off those congealed (but tasty) carbs. If you give God the chance he will answer, even on things that might not seem important. His answer may not come in a dream (so you have to pay attention) but it will come.
About the train; all I can remember is sitting on a moving train. According to the Dream Dictionary on www.Dreammoods.com; “to dream that you are on a train symbolizes your life's journey. It suggests that you are on the right track in life and headed in the right direction. Alternatively, the dream means that you have a tendency to worry needlessly over a situation that will work out in the end.” Knowing me it’s the later, or it could be both; in my heart I believe my life is on the right track but I always worry about whether it is or not. I worry because I'm always afraid I will make a giant mistake, but it’s inevitable that I will. Mistakes are how we learn; they are the steps that move us forward in life.
