For most if my adult life I have had a recurring dream that has puzzled me. I happened to tell a colleague about my dream one day, and not knowing this about her, she explained that she had a gift and could interpret dreams. I had not known this colleague for very long and never discussed my personal life with her. What she told me she saw amazed me and I want to share it.
In this dream, I am back in high school, wondering lost down the hallways and trying to find my locker. When I finally do find it I cant remember the combination and I can't get it to open. It always seemed there were a couple of people I talked to in my dream, usually different people, some I remembered from school but sometimes they were people I didnt recognize.
My colleague told me that the school represented my past and the hallways represented my journey I have taken in relationships throughout my life....explaining the feeling of wondering from one to the next and being lost. (This person is unaware of my L A and my previous 3 marriages.). She said that the locker that I was unable to open represented my heart, and the 2 people that I was talking to in my dream represented 2 things...trust and forgiveness. She told me that until I can resolve my issues with those 2 things, my heart will remain guarded and when I am able to resolve those issues it is then that I will be able to "open the locker" and experience a true loving relationship.
I was deeply moved by this, so much that it nearly brought me to tears. I was amazed at how everything came together and made sense and how she was able to interpret exactly what I have been dealing with all along was even more amazing to me. As surreal as it may seem I felt the need to share it with everyone here and just wondering if anyone has had similar dreams?

I love her interpretation, and it's done it's job for you, your (nearly) tears show the truth of your feelings. I'm just not sure how she would have gotten the "trust and forgiveness" from what you have written here, but maybe there was more you didn't write.
Dreams are a fantastic way to find out what we're really thinking about things. When I have one and remember it, like yours, and I understand the deeper meaning to it, it feels like I am getting a gift of connection to myself. Very precious.
"You deserve better than something that may be comfortable for you but you already know doesn't work and that you'll be complaining about soon enough and hoping that something or someone else will do what you can't even do for yourself. You deserve better - you deserve change".
