What does this mean? Please help

  2. I just had this dream that I was on this gigantic tree that reached the sky, the branches spread out as far as i can see, there were people there and it had like a place(city) they stayed. It felt so real, I was walking on one of its huge branches and when I looked down I could see the Earth and its ground, cities stretched out. It also had glass/crystal like floors where I was stepping (transparent) so I could see below(kinda scary if afraid of heights/ also awesome at the same time). Then at that branch there was this place with a cable/rope where I and those with me were showed by that lady(i could not see her face) she instructed us how to get on the rope/cable thingy. It was like slanting i could not see where it leads to. Then the alarm woke me up.

  3. I dream and saw a one huge native tree in my area and this tree if you have not circumcised as the true worshiper of it you will not touch it and i throw my shirt there in a dream what dose it mean

  4. I had a dream about an ex best friend & boyfriend recently.

    It started in a stark white room with one huge tree in the middle. Underneath the tree was he and I. He was on his phone and not paying much attention to what I was doing, but had allowed me to sit between his legs and lean against him.

    In front of us were five more huge trees with screens betwixt the trunks. I was playing games on the screens and whenever I would finished one, or there was an intermission during a game, my ex would reach down and either touch my face or my neck. He’d do so gently, but would never look at me.

    I’m not sure what this means, but I felt like something was off.

  5. I dreamed of an old maple tree in front of the house I grew up in. IRL the tree was dead at the top, but held the dead wood. In the dream, the wood had fallen, and someone ‘stole’ the wood, and I went to great lengths to collect it from them since it was mine. In the end I received it in a large crate, Gorgeous wood, that was bigger than anything that might have fallen from that tree.

  7. I had a dream last night that the bridge I was driving on with family collapsed and fell into the ocean below (res. to that of San Fran Bridge). After having found land we sat together and someone told us that the large tree in the distance was a white oak and all of a sudden people around it cut it down leaving the swaying trees around it (not sure which type) standing.

  8. I had a dream the night before last & I can’t shake it. I was riding in a vehicle with a female. It was dark but you could see the road & vehicles off in the distance. A big wind came along and blew several very large trees onto the road. They had no leaves they were just huge trees. I told the person driving these cars are going to wreck pull off here. While i was telling her you could see the taillights of the cars swerving & wrecking into one another. I was very calm. We went to a large building & stayed. What does this mean?

    • Just from first impressions, it seems that it would be wise to lay low for a while with what ever is happening in your life. It seems that if you go ahead ( perhaps an analogy of you in the car with the women driving) that difficulties (falling trees) will arise so best stay in the hotel (lay low for a while). Just my interpretation, but I hope all that makes sense.
