Last night I saw a beached orca whale in my dream. It was very real, as real as the real. It was a massive orca whale, flaundering arround in shallow water. It was right before my very eyes, I saw it fins gliding effortfully in the murky waters. I remember, I came very near to it. I felt no sense of fear – in fact, I did realy want to help. Then my dream got blurred. I saw the whale dissapear in the blink of an eye. In my dream, I believed it was able to get back into the ocean 🙂
It is silly. But – full of curiousity – today I looked on the Internet the meaning of my strange dream. They said, the dreams about beached whales reflects the dreamer’s concern about something that is very precious, but in danger of being lost. This is usually accompanied by a sense of helplessness or being out of one’s depth. A beached whale could represent a hurdle in my life, or something that has come to a standstill.
It represents my general feeling of powerless, helpless, of alienation – of being out of my element. Or, whether I am feeling stuck about anything in mywaking life. It also may symbolize something precious, something rare and special that I feel is in danger and which I feel unable to save.
Yes, that is very true.
