    I dreamed it was raining upwards and had the feeling of the world coming to an end. Please interpret.

  2. I dreamt I was in the middle of a non heavy downpour with my friend but she was with an umbrella. At first we were both covered under the umbrella, after which she left me all alone in the rain..I need an interpretation please

  3. I dreamed I went to hospital pick my children up from school. My 14 year old daughter had an awful attitude and was being very disrespectful. So I got her, l walked away with my others children. I don’t know to where or why because we we’re waiting on the bus. I came back to get her and she was gone. No one had seen her. A lady I was familiar with told me to watch out for one of my friends. They time she couldn’t be trusted and suggested she had call the police on me. The lady also said a crooked cop kept circling the block. I’m the block was a crack house. A man came outside and said, “oh she’s ain’t breathing no more”. Referring to my daughter at that time I began to flip out, and he ran on into his house. I woke up not seeing the ending. What could this mean?????

    The good part is that you signed to experience it as you knew that it was necessary for your spiritual grow, your divine self or consciousness is stronger that any adversity that you experience and within you lies the ability to overcome obstacles, but also help from a therapist or psychologist is highly advise!

  7. I was in the Catskill mountains at my childhood summer camp (a place I spend most of my time there as a child) and I see my parents and a younger version of me age 4 or 5 and I present me goes up to the younger version of me and asks “what’s your name?” And younger me says “Brita!” (But in a way my parents used to say it when I was little) then younger me runs to my mom and it begins to rain and everyone gathers their belongings and heads inside, present day me asks my mom if I can come in and she says there’s no room and leaves me outside standing in the pouring rain.

      Your mother neglected you when you were a child and probably stills goes on, “she is really selfish”as a result you are traumatized and have serious difficulties, deep trusting issues in relationships, it’s hard for you to commit because you don’t trust people and don’t believe you deserve love.
