The Dream (s)
I had a dream on the night of September 27, 2020, that I woke up late. I had a specific task to do so I got dressed really quickly. I don’t know why but the fact that I was wearing red pants with elastic around my ankles and black flats really stands out to me. Anyway, I picked up two gentlemen from the airport. Both of the gentlemen had long hair or long dreadlocks. For some reason, that fact stood out to me as well. I took both gentlemen to a salon to get their hair cut short.
After getting their hair cut, I dropped them off at a building they would be working in. I then went to a building or a room nearby. It felt like a command center. Then I noticed a bunch of people sitting around a table with headsets on. Some were in military uniform and there was a half-wall that separated one room from another. Every few minutes I’d hear someone say “ding, ding, ding;” As someone from one room brought a young person up a ramp and around the half-wall into the main room which looked like a classroom. The young person was always in civilian clothes and smiling broadly. At some point I found myself standing at a shelf in the middle of the classroom and apparently a guy I liked was telling me “I’m sorry I haven’t reached out. I’ve been working on some things to unfold and this squadron is really tight you know. But the thing with you and I have been amazing!” I said “Yeah” as though I understood completely.
In the second dream, I walked into the command center and noticed that I had some gear with me and a heavy backpack on. I set it down suddenly had a feeling that I was on an important mission. I realized that I along with a lot of other people were all in a room filled with military recruits. We were observing these new recruits who were standing in an airport picking up new people. Each time they picked up a new person, there was a huge celebration in the command center as everyone was observing on large screens.
Reflecting on the Dream (s)
It’s strange but as I wrote these dreams down after waking up, another dream that I don’t think I ever wrote down came to mind. Actually, two came to mind. The first one consisted of me visiting a military base years after I left the military. I was hoping to see familiar faces, but everyone had left and there were new people in the building I had worked at; with the exception of one of the civilians who recognized me. This gentleman and I walked next door to the maintenance yard and reminisced.
I was also reminded of another dream involving two military planes parked next to each other on a flight line. I was able to fly in one but upon landing, there was an issue with where to park both planes. Now, back to the original dream. I remember being unhappy with having thrown on the red pants and flat shoes. I did not want anyone to see me in them.
Also, here’s an interesting note. As I wrote down the dreams after waking up, I realize the pants and shoes represent my current weight and how uncomfortable I am about it. Another point to mention is that when I was waking up from the dream, I immediately thought “feed my sheep.” The people picking up new people at the airport represented bringing them close to God. Those of us in the control room were monitoring the new recruits. I also thought about Samson from the Bible when it comes to the two guys I picked up from the airport with long hair (dreadlocks).
