Egyptian Dream Symbols
What. A. Week. I’ve been running around New York City like mad going to various networking events and meetings in an attempt to find some new consulting clients. I’ve been making some really great connections, I think, and every time I attend a new event I have a whole new round of people to follow up and set meetings with. While I’m exceptionally exhausted and have more or less face-planted into bed every night this week, I feel good about the momentum I’m building.
As a contingency plan, I’ve also been applying for a few full time VP of Marketing jobs. Sometimes the hiring process can take months, so it’s best to get started now. Obviously I don’t necessarily want to go to work full time for someone else because I love my autonomy, but it’s a worst case scenario, and anyway, the culture at a lot of tech startups here is far more leading edge (with unlimited/untracked vacation days, etc.) than anything back in St. Louis.
These last two weeks seem to have been on opposing ends of the spectrum. As gloomy as I was feeling the week prior, new opportunities have presented themselves since, some of which are certainly divinely orchestrated.
I’m still exhausted. I haven’t slept well the last couple of nights – last night I woke up to loud banging (I think coming from the apartment downstairs) around midnight and my entire room smelled like something was burning. I went into our kitchen/living area and it didn’t smell like smoke in there, just in my room. The only thing I can figure is that someone in the apartment downstairs caught something on fire. I didn’t hear their smoke alarms going off, though, which was strange, because they’re really sensitive – we can’t even cook without ours going off and they go off in various apartments throughout the building at least three times a week. I’m not sure how only my room would smell. Either way, things seem to be back to normal this morning.
Speaking of normal…my typical morning consists of waking up between 6:30 and 7:00am to the sound of the child who lives above me running back and forth across the apartment at least seven times. Then he comes into his parents bedroom, which is above me, and promptly proceeds to drop things on the floor. And just for good measure, picks them back up again and bangs them against the floor a few times. This continues throughout the day, also accompanied by hour long bouts of screaming.
I know that no one is supposed to hate children, but I’m tempted to start a white board tally of how many times the phrase, “I fucking hate that kid,” escapes my mouth on a daily basis. So sue me. Did I mention this kid’s bedroom is directly above my office, so I get to hear this shit ALL. DAY. LONG?
I haven’t lived in an apartment situation in nine years. I really miss having a house to myself.
Question from a reader:
That doesn’t really sound like it was totally a dream to me. I have, at varying points over the past few years, had A LOT of dreams pertaining to Egypt as well. I think there’s a lot of us on the planet right now who have had past lives associated with Egypt and Atlantis. A lot of this symbolism isn’t really “symbolism,” it’s very direct and literal and is meant to remind you of pieces of that past that are connected to this one.
“I was around 9 or 10 when I had this dream that felt symbolic in some way, but I have never been able to understand the meaning of it. In my dream, I sat up from lying in my bed. I saw a floating square platform, hovering over me near the end of the bed (I slept at the bottom of bunk beds at the time). The platform looked like a 3D picture of Egypt. I saw a pyramid, yellowish sand, and one palm tree. Also, a small, dark haired child (same age as me) was holding a burning candle. I remember staring at him and leaned closer, my head tilted to the side with curiosity. He smiled at me, then blew the candle out. Then, I woke up! And I was sitting straight up in my bed, facing the direction of where this floating Egypt and boy were.
Any advice or clarity on this dream is greatly appreciated!”
I remember having a “dream” a couple of years ago where I wasn’t really totally asleep. I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep, and thinking about something completely unrelated, and kept having these interesting little thought visions pop up that were grabbing my attention.
The first one – I was standing on a hill or some high point overlooking a large flat area of land with three huge pyramids on it. It looked like Giza but there wasn’t any sand at all, and nothing around it. Just hard, baked earth. It wasn’t old like Giza, either – it looked brand new. There was no dilapidation what-so-ever. And I was immediately in awe of it.. there was a feeling of “Whoah, that’s cool.” And I think I even said, “Wow.”
In the next one, I was looking at a close up of the bricks being used to build it but they were perfectly white. I was surprised by that. I thought, “Oh, they’re WHITE!”
Then I saw a finished one – just a single pyramid this time, bright white, and it was in the middle of what looked like an oasis. There was water nearby and grass and a palm tree or two. And I thought, “Hmm… that’s not a desert. What happened to the dirt?” I was confused as to whether or not what I was looking at was supposed to be the same scene as the first one.
I use this as an example so you can see how abstract these kinds of things can be. They’re not your typical dream where your subconscious mind is just throwing up emotional symbolism to help you process something, they’re a connection to a greater part of yourself. You may not be able to logically wrap your mind around what they mean, but you’re connected to it in a subconscious way and that’s all you really need to know. Just keep following your intuition!
