Stealer of memories

I had a chain of events take place and perhaps this is not the place for this post but I shall share it. My mom was diagnoised last year with advanced Dementia. We all new what it was but my mom refused to get checked out. Let do a little set up my bed was in full view of my mothers bedroom door so I could see or hear if she got up. I had just laid her down and went to lay down my self. I had prayed for God to heal her or take her to a better place that night after a very heartbreaking day. I heard my mother talking "note" there was no one else in the house. I looked towards her door to see a very tall angel. I only saw his Golden Wings which seemed as tall as he was. I could see the detail of each feather. And the appeared to be made of Gold(metal). I thought I must be dreaming and rubbed my eyes but it was still there. I heard the sound of its footsteps leaving her room down the hallway. I jumped up and ran to her room. She was all smiles and for the first time in a long time she formed a sentence when I asked who that was. She replied "It was an angel" She improved for a day or 2 but it faded away.

I went back to bed that night feeling a sense of peace which I had not in a long time. I fell fast asleep another luxury I rarely had.

This was the dream I had. I found myself Suddenly in a large warehouse. Shelves filled with boxes as far as the eye could see. My mom was on the floor rummaging through a box pulling out all kinds of our family photos. She was angered and crying. I saw movement in the shadows to my right and looked over to see what appeared to be a person standing there. Not tall maybe 5'7 with jet black hair. I then noticed Three hooded figures Standing in the doorway behind me. Not saying anything just observing. This whole time my mother is screaming towards the man in the shadows "He is stealing all my pictures" she repeated this over and over. crying due to her anger. I asked him who the hell he was and then turned to the three hooded figures behind me and yelled why are you letting this happen. They of course did not respond. The man in the shadows however seemed to become very nervous as if caught and not knowing what to do. He ran down one of the rows of shelves and I began to run after him and suddenly woke up. When I woke up my mother was coming into my room looking a bit fearful. I calmed her down and got her back to bed. The rest of the night was uneventful but this dream has stuck with me in vivid detail.

I would love to hear your insight on all of this.

Re: Stealer of memories

Sherry,
I'll work with your dream tomorrow. I will say the first part of your post could be an out-of-body experience while dreaming but believing you were awake the whole time. The fact your mother saw the 'Angel' also could lend to this possibility since the angel image would be 'metaphysical' in nature which would fit within the realm of psych projection from the dream state. Angels are real in the since they can represent comfort and consolation as well as signifying an unusual disturbance in your soul {mother relationship and her impeding transition}. The experience is shared because of the relationship and belief in real Angels {not objectively possible}.

As for the dream. There is a 'masculine' energy and shadow who is stealing all of the pictures which cloud symbolize a mental imprint that remains persistent in your mind {even though it was your mother speaking it is your dream and your emotional energies}. is there a an in your life {and mother's} who would fit with emotional energies both would have experienced? The three hooded figures could represent present, past and future and the 'over and over repeating of your mother could suggest this person is in your past, your present and future life. Plus there may be something being covered up, the hood representing covering up the mental processes. Of course this is all preliminary and a full analysis may sort these out and come up with better explanations.

Re: Stealer of memories

Sherry,
I can see elements in the dream that deal with the emotional impact of your mother's condition and the position it has put you in. But as is the case with all dreams there are deeper issues the dream is addressing, issues that seem to deal with nurturing {mother is dream as a metaphor}. Deeper than that there is a masculine aspect, perhaps a man involved. My sense is this masculine aspect is responsible for much of the anger and turmoil not only in your life but also your mother's. It is the last line in the dream that may be telling {the last part of a dream often provides answers or possible solutions}. "He ran down one of the rows of shelves and I began to run after him and suddenly woke up". My interpretation of this sentence is 'following same path that you need to wake up to'. Does that fit with current feelings?

Read the amplified interpretation of the images/actions and see if you react to them in ways that may fit with your life. Your follow up response may provide more clues to the emotional energies the dream is attempting to communicate.
