I'm about to sound like a crazy hippy here, but for as long as I can remember, I've had a recurring dream about whales.
No two dreams are identical, and they don't happen very often but a few themes are recurring... My whale dreams seem to only happen at times of transition (moving, break ups, new jobs etc.). The dreams usually begin with me swimming in the sea when I notice a whale (or a dolphin) nearby. At first I'm afraid - they're so massive and overwhelming - and then one of the whales will swim up to help me and talk to me. I think we're speaking English - the whales and I - but it's a bit hard to tell in dream land. Sometimes we play (I vividly remember a dream where a whale and I were throwing a ball back and forth); sometimes we swim together; sometimes we just have a chat. In other dreams I'll be standing on the shore, or on a boat and just the sight of a whale will bring me huge comfort. And the amazing thing is that upon waking, I do always feel soothed and comforted by these dreams. Just writing this is making me hope for one soon!
I'd love to know... do you have any recurring dreams?
