I have really strange dreams.  Dreams where I’m She-Ra, dreams where I’ve won the lottery, where I’m a bodybuilder, where I live in the Hebrides … and also a lot of dreams where my Mum is still alive.  They’re not morbid.  They’re comforting.  According to psychologists’ books, I should have moved past this phase years ago – but what do they know?!  🙂

Last night, I had another dream …

  1. I make you totally right! I still have the same sort of things happen to me. I lost my mum when she was 46 to cancer! Back in 2002. Just this week a memory of her at christmas came back to me (she loved christmas) just a silly little thing but I had locked it away and I feel it is because I wouldnt have been able to deal with it any sooner. Even though you go through “a process of grieving” you’ll always have these little suprises along the way that keep you on your toes and make you remember how special they were in your life. Your mind is especially powerful and is your first line of defence in the event of trauma.

    keep the vlogs and blogs coming all very interesting…
    Have a lovely christmas x

  2. First of all, I’m very sorry for your loss. My mum died ‘young’ at 60 – but at 46, that’s just so bloody tragic. I can appreciate how hard Christmas is, but having your own loving family is certainly the best antidote. We’re both lucky in that respect. The subconscious is an amazing thing (I studied it briefly at Uni .. but really there’s so much more to learn), and it protects us from events that are otherwise too hard to deal with.

    I’m happy I had this weird dream. I hope I have more. I am comforted by the fact that she lives on in my dreams and that now, new parts of my mind are expanding to encompass long lost memories of her.

    I wish that for you too.

    Thanks for stopping by … love & peace to you and yours.
