- I'm a 45 year old mother of 3 boys. I live in a beautiful old house that needs a lot of TLC with my youngest son and 2 dogs. I am working hard at keeping myself healthy and fit by working out and doing a spot of running. I'm a creative person and am passionate about keeping traditional skills alive. I cook, knit, bake, garden, preserve, read, write and am now learning to spin and quilt. Oh and I sometimes swear.....

I'm on a beach with a group of people on my right looking out to sea. I can't see anyone's face but I know them and feel loved by them.
A white yacht sails across the bay, not going out to sea but across the water from right to left. I notice that the yacht's name is HORSE. I turn to the man beside me and ask why it's called HORSE. He takes my hand and laughs. He says 'Alison, you know why it's called HORSE' and everyone else smiles and laughs with him. They're not laughing at me though.
I believe that dreams are significant. Yes, sometimes they're just a jumble of thoughts and events that your brain has processed in your waking hours. And sometimes it's cos you drank too much alcohol before going to bed! But since I'm interested in developing my spiritual side further I've taken a closer look at this dream. And with the benefit of hindsight many of the symbols in the dream are scarily accurate!
Small rowing boats suggest an emotional journey requiring a great deal of effort. A yacht suggests the same journey but with style (yep that's me!) The yacht in my dream is sailing across a bay. It's not really going anywhere and I'm just watching it. The sea is calm, representing a peaceful existence but we know that those under currents can sweep us away.
The yacht is called HORSE. Horses in dreams represent the vitality present in the dreamer. A white horse (represented by the white yacht) describes the spiritual awareness of the dreamer. And interestingly in Chinese astrology I was born in the year of the horse.
The people in my dream are obviously known to me but I cannot see their faces clearly. This doesn't worry me and the man taking my hand is reassuring me.
So what does it all mean? The dream on its own has several meanings but the fact that I dreamed this dream 3 nights in a row make it deeply significant. I truly believe my subconscious was telling me something that I wasn't yet aware of in my waking life. The surface of my life seemed calm and ordered but I didn't want to see what was really happening underneath. The people on the beach were my support network, holding my hand and telling me that I already had the strength/power/awareness within me to start my journey.
Timing is everything. I had that dream 1 month before I had the courage to voice my worries and start the journey I now find myself taking. So why am I telling you about it now?
Yesterday I had one of my aha moments. Something that has been worrying me suddenly became unimportant. And last night I dreamed that my white yacht sailed out of the bay. Seriously.
Ok. Dave, Tim and George you can stop laughing at my mumbo jumbo shit now!!!! And probably Clark too.............
