Nice to know that I’m making progress.
In one dream…
…I’ve arrived in a desert city like Las Vegas. I’m at my hotel, preparing to go out.
I plan to bypass the strip with all the casinos and go to a college campus. Maybe I can see a movie there.
When I first considered this dream, I saw nothing wrong with going to the college campus. I’d rather go to college than to a casino.
But then I asked myself, “Why rush?”
I’m not a gambler. But maybe these dream casinos are about “taking a chance”. Taking a chance—instead of heading back to the old familiar. I see movies all the time. Perhaps I need to try something more active.
In any case, I must have taken this dream message to heart. Because in another dream a week later…
…I’m in a casino, at a bank of five video poker or slot machines, wondering which one I should play.
By watching for dream motifs, I’m often able to see when I’ve made positive change.
