Dream of a Specific Date


Dreams

I've heard that if you dream of a specific date, particularly a future date, it means something positive will likely happen to you. I'm just curious about any other interpretations that anyone may have about dreaming of dates.

In my dream, I was having a conversation with my mother and sister. We were discussing an event and possibly attending said event, so I pulled up the calendar app on my mobile phone to check my availability. It was then that I noticed the date of November 25th was scheduled as my first day of work with a major company. Instead of calling to offer me the job, the company sent me a meeting invite to confirm that the position was mine to have if I wanted it. I was stunned but very excited about the opportunity because it was with a company that I very much wanted to work with. That's all I remember about the dream.

In real life, I am a freelancer and have gone on several interviews for full-time positions. The most recent one happened over a month ago with a major company (the same one I dreamed about) where I had a great interview; however, I have yet to hear back from them about the status of the position. Not sure if this matters, but Nov. 25th falls on a Saturday this year, yet in the dream that date fell in the middle of the week – either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. And I know this company would not have a new employee working their first day on a Saturday.

Heard My Name Being Called, No One Was Around


Psychic and Paranormal

@womanwhowalks Lol... right! I've thanked them many times :)

@hop-daddy Nothing else happened that made the atmosphere feel different and I didn't have any ringing in my ears. I wasn't scared but I felt a little confused because I was so sure that someone very close to me just said my name and I know I wasn't dreaming. It's happened in other places too but I always shrugged it off. Only this time, I heard it 3 times in a row.

Heard My Name Being Called, No One Was Around


Psychic and Paranormal

Sometimes I can hear someone calling my name, but no one is around. Actually, it rarely happens but I just don't know what to make of it. The most recent occurrence was at a place where I worked as a temp. I finished my duties early and had an hour to go before my shift ended, so I went to the break room to take a nap until other work came along or until I could go home. (Note: Some managers frowned on this but it was something that several employees did. If those managers saw anyone sleeping in the break room, they did have the power to reprimand us.) Anyway, I set the alarm on my cellphone to wake me up at a time before my manager would be making rounds, I put my head down on the table and fell asleep. About 30 minutes later while sleeping, I thought I heard someone whisper my name. I didn't quite wake up and I heard my name again. This time, I opened my eyes but didn't raise my head. Then I heard my name being called one last time – very clearly and closely, only it wasn't a whisper. It was more like a normal, relaxed tone. When I raised my head, no one was around me. There was a group of maybe 4 people, sitting a few tables down from me, but they were in deep conversation and their voices didn't match the one I'd heard calling me. I'm certain no one in the group knew me by name anyway. As it turns out, the alarm on my cellphone did not go off. I can't recall if my phone malfunctioned or if I'd set the wrong AM/PM. Either way, the voice woke me up shortly before my manager made his way toward the break room.

Should I assume it was a guardian angel?

Thank you @amaya – this is so on point! FEEL is the keyword! I now realize that my feelings are intense, although I purposely subdued it to those around me. Lately, I've been making it a point to be more open and honest about my feelings – whether I'm happy, nervous, upset, etc. And I've been getting back to expressing those feelings on paper or canvas through my art. Graphic design is my primary career, but drawing was my first love and I want to get back into that space and how it made me feel while creating. I am ready to feel something real, preferably JOY over pain :)

Request for Reading Please: Purpose and Love Life


Request a Reading

The past 3 or 4 years have been especially challenging for me in pretty much all areas of my life. For the most part, I've been able to hold it together, believing that my situation will eventually turn around, but sometimes I lose hope. Lately, I've been wondering if maybe I'm not walking in my purpose. My career isn't bringing me the joy I used to feel. I ended a toxic relationship almost 2 years ago and I battle between believing that I WILL connect with my true love match one day and thinking that maybe he doesn't exist after all.

Let me know if you need any info from me before doing the reading. Thanks in advance!

How to Cut Off These Damned Feelings


Empath

Well, I was doing okay this week (or so I thought) until that feeling of heartbreak came over me again. I found this quote online and it describes my feelings almost perfectly...

How to Cut Off These Damned Feelings


Empath

I turned 40 a few months ago and the possibility of "having it all" in a relationship has been crossing my mind a lot lately. When I cried about my crush's new relationship, I was also crying because I wasn't certain if I will ever find a true, everlasting love. A love that is intense, loyal and passionate, not with all the toxicity. Maybe that seems a little too much like a fairy-tale, but I've met couples who genuinely love AND like each other. They've experienced ups and downs but they make it work. (I don't think either of them have partners who are narcissistic, insensitive, etc. though which I'm sure helps a great deal.) Since I've experienced a few toxic relationships with abusive partners, I feel that I deserve a fairy-tale romance. I don't expect a perfect man but am I setting myself up for disappointment to want a man who is mentally and emotionally healthy, who will respect me, my body and my feelings? I'm an introvert, so I'm comfortable with being alone; however, I wish that I can meet someone whom I can have a good, normal relationship with.

Dreaming About Dead People


Dreams

@nocturnes-angel Thank you!! The past several years have been especially difficult for me – mainly regarding my employment and financial difficulties. Most days, I've stayed upbeat, praying, and having faith that my situation will turn around. Last week, after another disappointment, I just completely broke down. Sobbing to God, asking him if he'd forgotten about me. It was the lowest I'd felt in a very long time. I told God that I needed him to carry me through this season because I just don't have the strength anymore to trust and believe that I will be pulled out of this rut.

So yes, that could definitely be the meaning of it. My faith is getting stronger again :)

Accepting someone


Empath

I'm sorry you're going through this right now. I would say keep as much distance as possible between yourself and your brother's girlfriend, but that's hard to do since she's living there.

Since you can't break them up, has your mother considered putting the girlfriend out? Your brother probably won't be happy about it, but she's become a cancer in the household. She will continue disrupting the household as long as she's there.

How to Cut Off These Damned Feelings


Empath

Thanks for your responses. I hate that we're all going through it, but glad to know I'm not alone.

About 10 years ago, I was in a normal relationship that lasted a little over 2 years. I loved him, but didn't feel a deep connection with him like I've had with others so I wasn't IN LOVE with him. Before him, most guys I felt deeply connected to had bruised souls and/or were abusive. So this normal relationship was one I was glad to be in. We went on real dates, he was kind, treated me nice, got along with my family, had ZERO abusive qualities about him, but I couldn't shake this feeling that he was being dishonest with me. Long story short, he was cheating on me. He never admitted it but a big lie he'd told confirmed my intuitions.

So to me, even though he was a cheater, our seemed normal because it didn't involve any abusive incidents like I'd gone through in previous relationships.

Now, as far as getting over my current feelings, I hope it takes a lot sooner than 11 weeks to wear off! But that seems about right. I know I'll get through it eventually, but the process of that happening really sucks. Sometimes I wish feelings came with a power switch.

Dreaming About Dead People


Dreams

What could this dream mean?

I dreamed that I attended the funeral of a guy who I worked with. My mother and niece came with me for support. While waiting for the service to start, I noticed a woman sitting in a pew to my right in the section next to mine. At first, she seemed like a normal looking middle-aged woman. She kept a pleasant smile on her face. As more people came into the church, a few people started sitting either next to or near her. That's when I noticed how different she looked than the people around her. She had a slight white or pale yellow glow/aura around her. At first, I thought well she must have a beautiful spirit. But then her glow became even more noticeable – like a glow that you see in movies. My mother and niece saw me staring at her but couldn't see what I was seeing. Then I thought, oh my God, that woman is dead or she's an angel. Slowly, other people around her started glowing the same way. They were sitting sporadically amongst living people. All we're smiling. I can't recall if they were actually speaking to the people near them, living or not. At this point, I'm freaking out because I'm witnessing something supernatural and I'm not in a place or the right time to call it out. I started breathing so quickly and heavy that my niece noticed it and asked if I was okay. While trying to calm myself down, I looked at the cover of the funeral program. Looking at the deceased guy's photo, I realized that I didn't even know the guy! I thought, Why am I here?!

.................
And that's how the dream ended. I haven't the slightest clue on how to interpret this dream. The only people I knew in the dream were my mother and niece. In real life, I've never seen an angel or the spirit/ghost of a dead person.

How to Cut Off These Damned Feelings


Empath

Some of you may have already discussed this situation, so sorry if mine sounds like a repeat...

Over a year a year and a half ago, a guy I'd gone to high school with reached out to me to do a business-related project for him. We were acquaintances back in the day, but grew closer while working on the project and I began to grow intense feelings for him. After months of crushing on him and fantasizing about how blissful our relationship would be, I finally told him how I felt. He said he wasn't sure how to respond. He wasn't mean or disrespectful about it. Finally, I had to be honest with myself and realize that he just wasn't that into me – he was only sexually attracted to me. Even though I very much wanted to sleep with him or at least TRY to sleep with him with no strings attached, I never did... because I knew in the end, I would end up getting heartbroken. I'm more of a relationship type of lady and eventually, I would want more from him than he would be willing to give.

Over the next several months, I slowly ceased contact with him but my feelings for him did not. Recently, while scrolling through my Instagram feed, I saw a photo he'd posted of himself with his new girlfriend. My heart shattered and I cried myself to sleep. Then I was mad at myself for still feeling that way toward someone I knew it wouldn't work out with. We'd never even gone out on a date or anything! But I saw him as my ideal guy. My brain knows better, but my heart hasn't yet followed suit.

I've always been the kind of person who (after admitting that I'm crushing on a guy) falls deep, no matter how hard I try to hold back. It doesn't happen with a lot of guys but it takes a very long time for those feelings to go away, even if I no longer have contact with the person. I confuse myself on whether it's because I've cooked up this hot romance in my head or if there is in fact a deep connection, but it's not meant to be on a romantic, sexual level.

I accept full blame for how I'm feeling. This guy never lead me on. I created this relationship in my head and I suppose it just takes time to heal from that. Has anyone been through this before and do you have any suggestions for moving on? I absolutely hate that I have no control over my feelings right now.

Instant Attraction with Stranger


Empath

Well, this happened with someone I've started working with several months ago...

I'd seen this guy around the building from afar maybe twice during my first 2 weeks of working there. Then one day, I was assigned to work in his station. Immediately after briefly introducing ourselves with a handshake, I felt very drawn to him. Like I just wanted to give him the biggest hug – a big friendly hug as if I hadn't seen him in years. He obviously felt something too because he said soon after our handshake, "Wow, you have a beautiful spirit!" He was very kind and courteous. Any time we get the opportunity to work together, I think it's obvious we enjoy each other's company. I don't usually talk a lot with people I hardly know, but I've been quite comfortable with communicating with him. Over time, I have developed a big crush on him. I have not and will not reveal this to him because he is married and I don't want to interfere in that sacred territory. He did mention one time that he liked me from the very beginning. Another time, he said I was like a ray of sunshine whenever I come around, but I don't think he meant it in a romantic way (because the workplace has its share of dark personalities). Like I said, he's been very kind and respectable and hasn't led me on. Honestly, if he appears to be slightly interested, it's probably all in my head.

My problem is how to deal with these feelings I have for him. I wish it would go away with a snap of my fingers. I suppose these feelings will eventually disappear since the job I have is temporary and will end in a few weeks. Not sure if this is something that Empaths go through all the time or what, but I'd like to know how others have handled being instantly attracted to someone they've met.

Skunk Dream?

Nocturne's Angel:

Are you seeking others opinions of what this dream may mean or are you simply sharing your dream?

Yes, sorry I meant to ask if anyone has any ideas of what the meaning of my dream is. It's pretty weird, seeing as how I live in an area where skunks are rarely seen.

Skunk Dream?


Dreams

In my dream, I was sitting in my car, parked right outside the house of a guy I have a crush on. It was a beautiful sunny day, so all the car windows were rolled down. My 2 sisters were sitting in the back. While we were talking, all of a sudden a skunk jumped into my car from one of the rear windows – scaring the mess out of all of us. We all screamed and got out of the car. The skunk jumped back out but it sprayed my rear driver side seat. I was furious and kept screaming how freaking unbelievable it was that that just happened!

Hello, New Empath Here!


Empath

After years and years of thinking something is wrong with me, I finally learned that I am (or could be) an empath.

I've always been a highly sensitive person, even as a child. When I was very young, I used to cry every time I heard "Endless Love" by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross. I had no idea what an endless love was, but the outro always made me very emotional.

Fast forward many years later (as an adult), I recall a time when I my mother, brother and I were chatting. My brother has never been one to express his thoughts or feelings openly, but I could tell something was bothering him that day. I felt really sad for him and didn't understand why. He was sitting there having a normal conversation. Later that day, my mother told me that my brother informed her that his ex-wife might be moving across the country with their daughter, whom he absolutely adores. That explained everything.

Since my adulthood, I started really noticing how I seemed to attract emotionally- and mentally-unstable people. Most were strangers or people in passing, some were co-workers or even family members. Others were old boyfriends, who appeared to "have it all together" in the beginning of the relationship, only for them to reveal their true selves months later. My most recent relationship ended a year and a half ago, after almost 6 years together. We connected deeply in an instant; therefore, the relationship advanced quickly. Weeks later, reality set in and he revealed that he was bipolar. We spent almost every day together, so I absorbed every emotion he was feeling. His manic moods were very intense and he became emotionally and verbally abusive. (I'll spare the details of what I've endured. Some of you probably already have an idea.) The night I ended the relationship, he had gotten angry about situation that I thought was really trivial. We discussed the issue and I thought everything had been squashed, but I could tell he was still very agitated. In the past, he hardly ever let trivial matters go and would be upset for days, re-opening arguments that had already been considered "settled" by both of us. This particular night, I'd planned to spend the night at his place. Since I knew that he would be tossing and turning all night from being agitated – another emotion that I would absorb, preventing me from getting any sleep – I decided to just go to my own home for the night so that I wouldn't have to deal with all that and to get good rest. (At that point, we'd already been arguing about it for nearly 3 hours. Actually, HE was the one arguing for all that time.) Anyway, he completely lost his temper to the point where he almost assaulted me. It was then that I decided to end the relationship.

After that, I felt this HUGE weight lifted off my shoulders! I realized that whenever our relationship was happy or in a good place, it was because HE was feeling happy. Times when he was uptight or agitated about something, I tried my best to bring some positivity or happiness into the situation, but his emotions usually overpowered mine. I just didn't understand how or why I seemed to soak up any overwhelming emotion he was feeling. I couldn't make it stop! Is this some sort of condition? What is it called? Is something wrong with me? One day, I googled something like "feeling others emotions" and for the first time, learned about Empaths.

I took a few quizzes which stated that I am a highly sensitive person and an Empath to a degree. I love animals, but I don't feel I have a deep connection with them or nature. However, I've always attracted broken or troubled spirits and had a hunch on how someone was feeling, whether sad or ecstatic. Sorry for the long post, but I'm just excited that I can talk to others like me and can get advice on how to handle being an Empath. Naturally, I do like to help people and have been told I'm a great friend and listener. 

I guess my first question is: How can I protect myself from absorbing other people's emotions, particularly angry, negative or depressing emotions? 

Thanks for reading/listening!
