This isn’t a dream but it came to pass that I met a guy who happens to have a thing for socks. It just so happens I had planned to have a date with this gentleman who I will name CJ. I became aware that CJ was celebrating his birthday the week of our date so that week I thought it a nice gesture to get him a tiny box of chocolates along with a birthday card and a Mylar balloon. On the day we were to have our date he had to cancel unexpectedly so I put the balloon in a vase in the dining room because it is pretty and it also gave me the opportunity to dream about the birthday parties I might have someday for my little one. The card and chocolates I stuck in a drawer.
Later I had the Kids Table dream where in the dream the little boy re-appears to give me a piece of chocolate. I knew my little one was calling my attention to the box of chocolate I bought for CJ. and quite interestingly it had writing in it, writing I recognized as something I had written.
When I finally came around to having that date with CJ, I went looking for his gift. I knew where the balloon was I just couldn’t remember where I had put the chocolates and card. After looking all over the house I finally found the card but the box of chocolates was still nowhere to be found. It was not in the most obvious place with the card. I knew there could be no way I would have put all three pieces in 3 distinct places. The box of chocolates had to be in the drawer with the cards but was mysteriously absent just like the sock that mysteriously appeared in my house one night. Yes a sock had mysteriously appeared in my house which I journalled as Mysterious Sock. I must have originally named the post Mysterious Booty because the link WordPress assigned to the post is Mysterious Booty. Interesting double meaning to the choice of words because CJ who you might say was a booty call has a thing for socks. He likes them so much he wanted me to wear socks when I answered the door. He wanted to see me wearing socks. I felt a strong association with the missing chocolates and the socks.
Now I’ve been a bit reserved on explaining some of the meanings in the dreams because I have just not been ready to do so. Backing up a bit if you haven’t guessed I’m in the process of having a baby. How I came to decide to pursue this dream of having a baby is a long story which I will tell at some point. Here i will say that the image of my child has been ever present in my dreams. So strong that I simply cannot over look it. The day the little booty sock showed up in my bedroom I took as a sign. A physical manifestation or signal from spirit that this is what I am supposed to be pursuing. When my little one who I will call OB1 (after Obi Wan Kanobe because it is a force to be reckoned with) showed up with the chocolate and having left the sock I just felt compelled to give CJ the magic sock after all he really likes socks and OB1 had given me his chocolate sock.
So after my visit with CJ we came to a point in our conversation where he was telling me that he is an elementary school teacher. I then mentioned that I may someday need advice. I then asked him if he had noticed my vision board in my bedroom where I have cut out magazine pictures of babies. I also have on there a few pictures of handsome men who can ether represent what I would envision my son to look like as a grown man or if God so chooses (lord knows I’ve prayed) a handsome man for me who is worthy of a relationship. I also have one special picture I cut out of a man especially for me. He is an uber handsome man who wears a T-shirt that reads DREAM FEARLESSLY. As we were looking at my board I suddenly realized the one picture of the man I placed in the middle with the Dream T-shirt looks exactly like CJ. A striking resemblance. Maybe someday I’ll ask his permission to post his picture here. It’s nothing short of a miracle.
Now I am not jumping to any conclusions oh CJ although he is definitely handsome as one can be but with all the heavenly chimes ringing there is a a message obviously intended for me. I take the message to be God has heard my prayer and has clearly demonstrated nothing is beyond his capacity to make manifest and he / she does communicate with me in dreams.
If I look at my board I had placed a picture of a beautiful woman who is pregnant in a rainbow colored bathing suit smiling and enjoying the sun. I place her there so that God would bring me a surrogate. I have been matched with a surrogate with whom I also share a magical story. See Santa’s Paradox. The morning I was introduced to her I woke up to find the Grinch sitting beside my bed. That day I received her profile and one of the pictures was of her and her family during Christmas with her husband dressed up as the Grinch.
Dreams are so incredible with a wealth of fairy dust to guide. It’s ashamed we don’t spend more time reflecting on them. I hope to someday share with OB1 how it came to be.
