Dream Decoded: "'God' told me there was something wrong with my child."

Astrology.com dream analyst Cathy Pagano interprets

I had a dream when I was pregnant with my daughter that I was in heaven visiting my best friend (who’s alive in real life). I was pushing my boys in their stroller when God (who was a woman) came over to talk to me. She reached down and touched my son and had this worried look on her face. I asked if he was okay and she said, “He is now, but he won’t be.” At this point I woke up, but the dream has bothered me ever since. It was over a year and a half ago, but every time something is wrong with my little boy I fear the worst!!

Cathy interprets:

As a mother myself, I understand your worry. That’s what moms do! But a dream like this is meant to teach you how to be more objective with your children, more open to their many possibilities and more in tune with their spiritual growth as human beings.

We have to remember that dreams come to us in symbolic language, which we must translate into something we can understand. Symbolic language is the language of the right brain; it’s metaphorical. This language says this equals that: Don’t take things concretely; take them emotionally.

To go to heaven and meet the (Mother) god is an awesome and special experience. What you must have been feeling! It speaks to your beliefs and your spirituality as a woman.

So the first question you should ask yourself is: What are my beliefs about boys and men? Because God (great spirit, powers that be, etc.) symbolizes your beliefs that give you the “forecast” of your son’s life. So many women today are disappointed in men and disenchanted by a masculine approach to life; in reclaiming their own feminine relationship to spirit -- through a goddess, perhaps -- they may unconsciously think that boys are doomed to failure. This is your test as a mother. If God tells you that she is worried about your son in the future, then what do you do as a mother to help him meet his challenges? Each of our children is a unique soul, with his or her own fate and karma and challenges. As mothers, our job is to give them the tools to meet that fate with honor and integrity, openness and imagination.

Even when women want to blame the patriarchy for the mind-set that degraded women and the feminine spirit, women participated in it and taught their daughters (us!) the rules. Now, as mothers, we have to change those rules so our sons will grow up to be honest, loyal, creative, strong, dependable men. If this is your worry, then step up to the plate and strive harder to walk your talk and to teach your values and trust in spirit. Don’t be afraid to correct any behaviors that are inappropriate, but do it as an objective teacher. We are here as parents to help our children build their character in the best possible way -- not as we would have them be, but as they are meant to be. Visit Cathy Pagano at astrology.com.
