Partner

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of your partner means the dream is primarily about the nature of your relationship. The rest of the symbols in the dream will expand on the theme. Walking or driving down a dead end street, for instance, shows that the relationship is going nowhere. Sitting in a parked car can mean the same thing.

Sleeping at opposite ends of the bed indicates that you and your partner are polar opposites – your heads are pointing in different directions. Consequently, there will be a lot of conflict in your relationship. A dream of moving to Belfast would indicate the same thing unless you are from there or have reason to move there.

Dreaming of your partner driving while you are in the back seat, shows that you are not treated equally in the relationship – your place is in the back.

To dream of your partner dying, is indicative of being in a relationship that you do not want to lose. While it seems dramatic, the dream is trying to show you how much your partner means to you. Perhaps you have recently slipped into taking your partner for granted. This is a common dream when you find yourself in a relationship that feels like true love, particularly when it follows a bad relationship. The most common theme is your partner dying in a car crash.

To dream of your partner dying or leaving you stranded can also be about a previous relationship, including the foundation of all male relationships, the one with your father. If your father has died recently or his death is still heavy in your heart, then it is natural enough to have dreams where you face this happening again with another man you love. It is not a premonition that they will die.

It normally shows up with words such as, “the heating pipe burst and a woman passed.” Note the missing preposition from the dreamer’s words. We would normally say, “passed by”. This is the most common way it is recorded when passing refers to a person passing into spirit. In the example given, the dream was reminding the dreamer of their mother’s death due to a heart / circulatory condition. The rest of the dream explained why it was important to look at this now.

Peach

Pink, a mix of red (passion) and white (perfection), indicates love. To dream of this color is enough to show that you did not bond well with your mother or that she did not love unconditionally.

A poor bond affects the flow of female energy within and negatively impacts on spiritual gifts that require a female energy flow such as intuition, counseling, and teaching.

Prophetic Dreams

If you have prophetic dreams it means that you are prophetic in reality. You can predict the future for yourself and others. Prophetic dreams predict exactly what will happen. Dreaming of an uncle dying just before your aunt dies in reality is not a prophetic dream. Prophetic dreams can be vague but not inaccurate. Most importantly, prophetic dreams have a strong feeling associated with them that pervades the whole dream. If you have prophetic dreams you will already be aware of this feeling. Any dreams that do not have that feeling can be interpreted as per this book.

Protecting

Now is the time to look back at this and do whatever it takes to eliminate the negative effects that you still carry with you today.

Protective Armor

Protective armor indicates that you do not allow others to get close to you. This is always about your heart and emotions. The idea is that by keeping people at a distance you cannot get hurt.
