I don't know how, but in the dream I got away and started running to a door up some steps and knocking on it and calling for my mom, but it wasn't her house.
Then I woke up and my ear was still hot.
Anybody else have dreams like that?
in reverse order:
- addressed earlier
ear still hot
- "the message" of the dream carries over into your waking life;
it is hot topic, on the front burner, delivered audibly
it wasn't her house
- it's not about your birth mother [instead: your spiritual mother]
up some steps
- i'd originally thought this to be as from a basement
(not to some random home, via the out of doors)... a relook confirms the idea
praying to God to help me
- that explains the "I don't know how" shift; divine intervention
it felt like my my whole body was on fire
- you were infused with energy,
but undirected and potentially damaging
- this is the crux of the issue. the entire meaning of the
episode was likely conveyed to you there... but it seemed nonsensical to you.
"compartmentalization" is a significant tool for you PlatitudePluto
you've evidenced a desire to 'deal with' people in distinctive manners... and here:
"All I want to do is be left alone to do my work and then go home and live my life."
that sentence indicates that you've separated yourself into a living section (at home),
and another [non-living?] section at work. compartmentalization.
the dark room I didn't recognize
is (i believe) a portion of your venue
which you have removed yourself from utilizing. the demon which resides
in that overlooked basement is a portion of your spirit which you've disowned.
it still contains life energy (which felt as if fire when it shared itself with you),
so it's not simply gonna vanish into the abyss when shut away from your love.
