concrete ocean

I had this dream in which I was on the shore of a concrete floored ocean, the floor of the ocean declined about a few feet slightly before it dropped off completely. and I was afraid to dive in because I kept drowning whenever I tried to swim farther out my body would dangle off the edge and I would try to pull myself back up and I couldn’t. I was afraid but I wasn’t completely in fear. I embraced the fact that I couldn’t pull myself up, and then I woke up.

Is there something going on in your life that your hesitant to “dive” into so instead you approach it with with cautious incremental little steps as though moving one step forward then two steps back or three forward and two back. Maybe your playing it safe but not getting anywhere with an opportunity that might be lost as a result. Somebody has already laid the foundation with all that concrete, in a sense paving the way for you. You can’t get past the edge by swimming. you won’t progress that way. Take the risk and dive over whatever mental barrier that’s limiting you.

In my dreams, if I’m afraid and die, I come back to waking life. When I die without fear in my heart, I spawn into another dream. Makes me think that fear of death is what actually kills us, not death itself.

Thank you so much, I think I’m relying on the concrete ground below my feet a little too much. I feel safe with my feet on the ground and I feel safe knowing that my feet are in complete control of where I’m going. I’m almost afraid to dive in and swim, to let the waves carry me where I need to be.
