Am I just spinning my wheels?
Consider this recent dream…
I’m standing in a driveway when I begin to spin. I look down at my feet as I go round and round—they’re just off the pavement.
Having also spun in some past dreams, I’ve grown familiar with this symbol…
I’ve come to see spinning as positive—though it can be unsettling. When I dream spin, there’s a revolution going on in my life. Change.
Maybe this type of spinning is a universal symbol. In the “Wonder Woman” TV show, a regular gal does a spin and becomes a super hero.
However, in this most recent dream, I’m going counter-clockwise. So perhaps I’m regressing.
On the other hand…
…I have a sizeable past, and maybe I need to reexamine that past, right now, before I can go forward—before I can leave the driveway.
So, I’m not spinning my wheels: I may be standing in one place, physically, but internally, I’m making progress by going in reverse.
