“The function of dreams is to maintain a correct balance in our lives. A dream puts us back into proper balance. It comes to reveal, not to hide." - Dr. John Baumgold
I had a dream last night. I was about to get my back tattooed. And instead of being at a shop we were out by a lake which was going to be the background for my tattoo. But as I sat there watching the scenery I felt it was too cluttered and wanted the sky with sunrise colors and moon in the background and an ocean not a lake. So the tattoo artist started to erase all the old background from my back. What does that mean? - Lacie 21, Salt Lake City, UT
Lauri: Sounds like you are in a situation or possibly a relationship that part of you wants to be permanent, hence the tattoo, but another part feels it is too complicated and wants to erase it and put it behind you. The tattoo artist is you, your ability to create the world you want for yourself. Your dream is showing you that, unlike a tattoo, certain relationships or issues you have created can be erased if they aren’t working for you.
Lacie replies: I think it has to do with a friend of mine. She just moved to Washington from here in Utah. I love her, but sometimes I can only handle so much of her. She can be a bit of a toxic friend at times. Lately I have been thinking about whether I should slowly let go of the friendship or keep her in my life for permanent.
