So, last night was our Spring Band Concert at my High School. Everyone was particularly well dressed. The same night I had a dream that myself and some other friends of mine, impecably dressed I might add, were standing chatting on a porch that looked like it was from a renovated southern plantation house. The day was hot. I remember the huge porch had new wood planks, wicker furniture, and a huge porch swing. But then, the song "If I die Young" by The Band Perry started playing on white speakers and everyone started to dance with the music. As the song ended, I woke up. (This Morning) What does my dream mean?
To dream that you are dancing, signifies freedom from any constraints and restrictions. Your life is in balance and in harmony. Dancing also represents frivolity, happiness, gracefulness, sensuality and sexual desires. You need to incorporate these qualities in your waking life. If you are dancing with a partner, then it signifies intimacy and a union of the masculine and feminine aspects of yourself. If you are leading, then it indicates that you are in control of your personal life. It could also mean that you are being overly aggressive and assertive.
To dream that you are attending or going to a dance, indicates a celebration and your attempts to achieve happiness. Consider the phrase the "dance of life" which suggests creation, ecstasy, and going with what life has to offer you.
To see children dancing in your dream, indicates a happy home life.
To see ritualistic dancing in your dream, denotes your need to get in touch with the spirit within..
hope this helps :)
I believe this was a past life memory...not a dream!
Believe it or not...this happens quite often. I have dreamed about a life I had in the 1800's where I watched my fiance' drown in a swollen river. One where the car I was riding in fell off a bridge and another that my son actually dreamed in which catapulted him, my daughter and I all into a shared vision of the same past life we all shared together. (Weird, I know!)
Your memory was of a life in which you lived in the south on a cotton plantation in Alabama . And, as the song plainly told you...you died young. From my experience, you likely died around the age you are now.
I also suspect since the high school event triggered the memory and you danced on the porch in your "dream"...that your demise came shortly after some community or social event as well.(They didn't have school functions like that back in those days) Oh, which was around 1818 and you died before you were 18, kinda ironic.
How do you feel when you read this? If you get the "shivers" that's your soul recognizing the truth!
Best wishes and happy dreaming!
I think it's most important to consider how you felt during this dream. Was it a happy party for you? Did you feel dwarfed by the large deck?
In Jungian terms, a house usually represents the mind or the soul. You and your friends were all getting together outside of your house. That in combination with the fancy clothes would lead me to believe this dream has something to do with a notion that none of your friends really know you.
you put way too much emphisis on dreams.
