I had a dream last night that I went to the Doctor for my 6month
after surgery check up and they did an ultrasound
and found I had two babies growing in the wrong space...
one was growing in my tube and the other in my ovary.
I had to have emergency surgery and have them taken.
I was heartbroken and worried, wondering if there was any way to save them.
I was searching for the Barren and couldn't find him....
I had my mother with me and I was frightened
that she would not hear what the doctor found
...or that she would keep information from me.

Even after waking I was still frightened
That dream was followed by another the following night
that I was searching
for The Barren again; the night sky was filled with bi-planes
 they appeared like larger then life fireflies.
As I was searching I entered a building that was built like the Guggenheim (a spiral)
it was a mall or someplace like it in dream logic
I was entering and exiting the maze of spaces
until I reached an open atrium space
where a baby giraffe was, running in circles in the small space, the keeper
laughing at its fear and panic.
I tried to calm the baby, shh-ing and cooing...but before I could
it collapsed, eyes wide open...stiff and strait as a pole.
I am not sure what these dreams mean, or why I felt compelled to write about them...
I know they are full of dream symbols:
  1. To dream that a giraffe is running implies that you are avoiding the truth. It also suggests that you saw something that you shouldn't have seen. To see a giraffe in your dream suggests that you need to consider the overall picture. Take a broader view on your life and where it is headed. The dream may also be a metaphor on how you are "sticking your neck out" for someone.
  3. To see an airplane in your dream indicates that you will overcome your obstacles and rise to a new level of prominence and status. You may experience a higher consciousness, new-found freedom and greater awareness. Perhaps you need to gain a better perspective or wider view on something. If the airplane is taking off, then it suggests that an idea or plan is about to "take off" and be put into action. It may also represent your need to get away and escape from your daily life.
  4. To dream that you are a doctor suggests that there is some problem that you need to patch up or some emotional wound that you need to bandage up. Alternatively, it signifies your ability to offer your support to others.
Ironically, two new giraffes were born at the local zoo...
"April 30, 2013: Congratulations, Betty Lou!
    Betty Lou gave birth April 28 to a healthy calf named Sunshine. She is being an attentive mom, and letting the calf nurse. Sunshine is 6' and 133 lbs. Zookeepers have begun introductions to the rest of the herd, and mother-calf pairs will most likely rotate on and off exhibit. Michael, father to both calves, will remain on exhibit most of the time."

What vivid dreams you have!!! Many times, I'd dream and wake up not remembering things...

Now that you had read interpretations for items in your dream, what do you think?

What an interesting post; I sure hope you get some clarity soon about what your dreams may be alluding to in your own life.

dreams are such fascinating insights into what's going on in our brains. our subconscious telling us little stories, little mysteries we have to work out to better understand ourselves. that's very interesting about the giraffes... hope these dreams led to some insights for you loev.
