Axank’s Dream Recall
September 17-20, 2013
There was a spirit-child harassing me and my friends/family. He was translucent but still visible. He was outside the door and was trying to come inside. I closed the door on his hand so he was pinned to the closed doorway. He was saying some very mean things. I also dreamed of hiking with a very dear friend of mine up through snow and it lead to a warm, sunny, grassy area where there was a big luou potluck type BBQ where family and friends of friends were gathered. I ate there and felt really good.
This dream has a few elements, the first the apparition relates to the element of water in regards to intuition, clairvoyance, etc. Secondly the emotions felt in this dream where hurt feelings, sufferance, and also warmth and love. I think it shows the versatility of the cups and the potential within the ace.
