Oh, baby! New beginnings are haunting all of us in our dreams. This is not a coincidence that we are all experiencing a huge conscious shift and becoming aware of this through our dreams. The only way for our shift to take place is if we are aware of what is creating it.

Dear Dream Retriever: I had a dream that I gave birth to a baby boy and then later when I went to check on the baby and it was dead. When I got the baby I wasn’t very happy, but when the baby died, I was very sad and I cried a lot. — LM

Dear LM: When you received some information recently, you were not happy but probably should have been. It wasn’t, however, until you received this information or the opportunity was lost that you realized the value of it.

Dear Dream Retriever: I recently had a vivid, heartbreaking dream about a baby — no specific member of the family, just a baby I was bathing and when I looked down, it was not breathing. I picked it up and started pushing on the baby’s chest and giving it mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, and a bubble of water came out and then the baby’s head changed it shape and turned into water. — DJ

Dear DJ: Bathing a baby represents an emotional cleansing and a new beginning. During the process, the baby can’t breathe and this is common. The effort you are putting in needs to focus on emotional issues you have. This is represented by the baby turning into water as you try to save it.

Dear Dream Retriever: I’ve had a dream of my mother who was 77 when she passed away two days after Easter this year. I dreamed how frail she was and how sad I was. I was trying to help her in every way but couldn’t. Suddenly, my mom turned into a little baby. She smiled at me and came to me and hugged me. What does this mean? — Patty

Dear Patty: You dream of a past loved one is a message from her. Her message was that a loss of love is devastating but necessary if it is not strong. It also indicates you having to accept that sometimes, no matter what you do, some things are out of your control and not your fault.
