Dreams are something that fascinate me. I have written about them quite a bit before. I am usually pretty good at deciphering the meanings of my dreams by use of dream dictionaries, and my own experience, since I have been actively analyzing dreams, and even at times have kept a dream journal for over 20 years now.
Recently, I have been having dreams about having a garage sale, or a yard sale. I think it is most usually in a garage, which is interesting, because I don't have one in real life. I find that it further adds to the meaning of the dream.
According to a couple of dream dictionaries that I consulted dreaming of garage sales can mean that I am recycling
past experiences and finding use for my old skills and ideas, and learning from my past in order to make productive use of the lessons I've
In all of my dreams there are so many obstacles in the way of me having this sale that I have been preparing for. Not only have I strategically been preparing, but the sale is necessary for me to move on. I need the funds, and to get rid of the stuff to make room for something new. In some of the dreams I am moving somewhere else. In others I just need the money, and space in order to buy something new. In my last dream I was at a friend's house, and she was having a garage sale,and I was trying to help her. I asked her why she didn't come to me sooner, because I have so much experience with them. I wanted to help her be successful in her endeavors.
In all of the dreams I am not in the house I currently live in. Nor am I usually in one that I recognize, but people from my past are often there. People that have not treated me well. They try to block me from selling. Sometimes they try to throw my stuff away, or shut the garage door, or even sabotage customers. They always upset me greatly, but I manage to move on anyway. I always manage to out think them.I know it is crucial to my success to out maneuver the people in my dreams, and I can't let myself fail.
I think this reoccurring dream is about learning from
all of my past challenges, and applying them to my present as I prepare for the future. I have worked hard to understand myself, and work through so much anxiety, depression, and poor family relationships to be the person I am today, and now I can use all of that experience not only as a firm foundation for myself, but I am now at a point (and age!) that I can extend my knowledge to others. It's been a long journey to get where I am, but I can honestly say through it all it's been totally worth it.
