Walking Selena Gomez Downhill [Dream Interpretation]
Welcome to the first of a long series of posts I will be writing on dream interpretation. My intention is to show in plain detail how I interpret dreams so that the dreamer gets the most helpful guidance. If you like what you read, feel free to share a dream in the comment section. I will make a special post for you with your dream interpreted.
Dream: Walking Selena Gomez Downhill
I remember seeing Selena Gomez in high heels on a street. She was getting ready to walk down a hill but looked like she didn't have good balance due to her shoes and the steepness of the hill. I walked over and took her arm and walked her down the hill myself. It felt very loving and I was happy to do it.
When we got to the bottom of the hill there was a little street cafe and she took a table to wait for a male she was meeting. I turned to wave goodbye and said "I love you". I think she repeated it. A part of me was pretty sad/disappointed to walk away.
Full disclosure: this dream is mine and that can often make them more challenging to analyze because of wavering objectivity. However….
I immediately know from the title of this dream that it is commenting on the spiritual gift of channeling (Selena Gomez) and connecting it to the state of my heart (walking downhill). Musicians represent a channeling gift because music is a part of the spirit world.
Many times when a dream has you move from a high location to a lower one they are symbolically asking you to move your consciousness from your head to your heart.
At the point when I had the dream I’d been working on healing and opening my heart and had just finished a weeks-long visualization therapy to work on issues stemming from a poor bond with my mother in childhood. The fact that I was lovingly helping Selena was a good symbol in this regard.
But, dreams usually offer healing and guidance on the things that are challenging us so now I will begin to look for that.
Since everything in the dream is representing an aspect of the dreamer (first rule of dream analysis) I can read that this dream is saying that I “don’t have good balance” and I feel “sad/disappointed”. Reflecting upon reality I recognize this feeling as being the one I felt when I had to sell all of my steem to pay off a roof loan before I got hit with any compound interest. Steem went from 1.35 to 1.97 a day later and I was gutted that I hadn’t waited.
In the dream Selena was waiting for a man at a cafe table and because of this I walked away when I hadn’t really wanted to. It helps at this point to step into the right brain to piece this important bit of information together.
-In reality, I’m everything in this dream so I could have stayed as long as I liked but something made me feel like I couldn’t ask to sit and wait with her.
- Men represent confidence and belief in self and I can see that the sadness and disappointment I felt in the dream was due to having not been confident enough to wait with her. Meaning, I didn't trust my channeling gift which was telling me to wait longer to sell.
This disappointment in myself and lack of trust in my channeling gift had created an undesirable imbalance for walking my higher path (high heel shoe). Since Selena was the one with poor balance it was showing that the negative feelings I was having about finances were negatively affecting my channeling connection, because I didn't feel like it was strong, solid or sure (wobbly in shoes).
Since I'd tried channeling on when the best time to sell my steem was, this was probably also showing that the trust I felt toward myself (or didn't) was affected negatively .
In reality, I knew full well that I should wait until at least Thursday (but the weekend really because I heard a Weekend song enter my head with the lyrics "you don't have to worry about it") but I had grown unsure and impatient due to a looming deadline and a roller coaster market.
If I could repeat the dream for a do-over I would still lovingly help Selena down the hill, but this time I would have invited myself to sit with her. Sitting with a female would have been healing for my heart because females represent compassion and emotional expression. As is typical of dream fashion, she would have been happy for me join her and we would have probably had tea or some other symbol that represents the heart/sharing.
- This dream was telling me to be more compassionate with myself and see that lack of trust in my gift was the issue, not the gift itself. This is comforting because I want to be able to trust this gift and use it to my benefit on a regular basis.
I use the Michael Sheridan Method of dream interpretation and I hope you enjoyed this process. 😊
