The other night, I had a dream and it went something like this:
I was walking on a journey. I am not sure where I was going, but I was not alone and I did not recognize any of the people that I was journeying with.
While walking that path, I see a white bird land into my hand out of no where. I don’t know a lot about bird the various species but I know for sure that it was not a pigeon but could very well be a young/small dove or just a white bird.
What struck me about it is its bright snow white color. I was happy with the bird’s visit and I was also surprised because it is a rare occurrence to see a bird befriend a human being immediately.
The bird was so affectionate and it starting bunting me (rubbing its head on my neck) and this triggered the emotion of love within me. It was the first time I felt so much love in a dream.
I immediately bonded with and started loving that bird. I then cupped it in my hands, wanting to protect it, and then brought it closer to my heart to express all the love I received from it, and then let the bird fly away. The bird then flew out of my hands and I continued the journey.
A short while after, the bird reappeared I felt that the bird came back in a rush because it was distressed and seeking help. I extended my hand and it landed on my palm again. It continued the journey with me for a while and then it flew once more.
Later, I missed the bird and I called it by extending my arm and making the intention that it comes back to me. The bird heeded my call and appeared out of nowhere, only to land on my hand again. It stayed for a while with me and flew away again for third time. I felt that each time it flies away, it has a business to attend to but I don’t know what it is.
During its absence, I started to feel worried about its safety. Because the bird is free to come and go, I started questioning “what if it flies away and never returns back?”, “what if I miss it and need its love and attention and it won’t be here anymore?”, “what if it gets lost?”, “what if someone else captures it?”, etc. I then started thinking that I should put it in a cage (for its own protection so it does not get lost or attacked by a prey) the next time it comes back.
I may have awakened from the dream before it came back or it never came back, I don’t remember. However, what I remember clearly was that it may have never returned because I started to have doubt and I wanted to put it in a cage.
