# 6 The most amazing dream

Last night I had the most amazing dream. It was amazing because it was as swimming in tropical waters. I can recall the details like it was a short-film in my head. I admit I Googled a lot of the symbols because I was curious what my subconscious was trying to tell me.

Let me paint a picture...I was fishing on a wharf, it was early evening, or so I thought because it was overcast and the lighting was dim. There may have been a storm brewing in the horizon but it didn't worry me. I was with acquaintances, though not people I knew in my real life. We were fishing for dinner, but I don't think it was a shared dinner. 

After I cast my rod, I could see dark shapes jumping out of the water. Sharks! I caught one fairly large one, though I'm not sure how since I had a pretty small rod. We threw it back, and we could see more sharks jumping out from the water. One of us was yelling, "Shoo! Shoo!" which in reality is quite funny.

Next I caught a fish, and from then on we all started catching them, one after the other. Soon the fish bin was full and we were wanting to divide the catch and head home. I looked over the wharf and could see how clear the water was and see the rocks and fish swimming beneath. There were what I thought were squid, which turned out to be cuttlefish (I Googled it). Then on it's own I saw a manta ray, just chillin on the rock. I don't remember it swimming away, even when the sharks came closer.

The dream ended with an image of a yellow boat sailing off into the storm. I wasn't on it, but I didn't find it odd sailing away in such bad weather.

I woke feeling refreshed. I've been sick for almost two weeks now and today is the first time I'm starting to feel more energised. My head is clearing up too. Time to start writing those goals and tasks again - my body and mind is giving me the green light!


Sharks : They can symbolise negative thoughts, a deception or people with negative intentions. It can also mean deep-set suppressed emotions or anxiety.

Wharf / Dock : Can symbolise the end of trouble or worrisome part of the journey. It can also mean to successfully finish a job.

Cuttlefish : Can mean you are clear about your feelings and expressing them in a healthy manner.

Manta Ray : Signifies emotional freedom.
