Holding something in? Dream is telling you to cough it up
Holding something in? Dream is telling you to cough it up
PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

Warning dreams are the best dreams we can have, if we see them for what they are. There are so many times in our lives when we need and ask for guidance. What many of us fail to recognize is the power we have to call upon and receive that guidance. For most people, it’s as simple as not knowing how to see or even where to look. We blindly pray for answers, not realizing where those answers come from and or from what source. As I have stated before and feel is worth repeating, we are the ones that hold the light at the end of the tunnel.

Dear Dream Retriever: In my dream, I am walking down the street alone in the town I live in. It is all familiar to me. I stop in front of the drugstore and start coughing uncontrollably. I reach for the handle of the door and fall to my knees, coughing so violently I can hardly breathe. I cough one last time, and all I see is red. I am pretty sure I coughed up blood. It woke me and I jumped up.

Should I be worried? I am a smoker, so is this a warning? — JC

Dear JC: This is a warning dream, but not what you think it is. Although I cannot say smoking is OK, I don’t believe that is what you are being warned about.

Blood represents your life force and your lungs’ ability to take in and give back that life force. If you are coughing in real life, you are trying to clear your breathing; when you cough something up, it’s because it interfered with your natural ability to breathe.

That being said, you are going though your life as usual and you start coughing uncontrollably in front of a drugstore. That is not a coincidence. You go to the drugstore to get medicine to help when you are sick. You are not sick and do not go in the store but start to cough up blood. This says you are stifled and feel suffocated by something. It has gotten to a point where it is poisoning you to keep this in, and now it has to come out.

That is to say that whatever you have been hiding, dealing with alone, burying for too long, has to come out now.
