Hi, I wanted to ask a question about my future. I started a business at home and would like to rent a room or spot to expand properly away from my home. I’m an Esthetician, I’ve been patient and hopeful that it will happen soon, but 2 nights ago I had a dream that I had an abortion and there was a lot of blood, but, I had no physical pain. Just sadness that I had lost a baby. I was excited for this baby in my dream. Ever since I started feeling doubtful about succeeding in future. ~Erica
I’ve heard and learned that the best way to interpret dreams is to do so intuitively, before looking up an specific meanings, and it seems as though you have done this too. Intuitively, I feel that the baby you lost in your dream was the dream of you holding your business in a new environment, but what is interesting is that you lost the baby through an abortion and not through a passive means, like a miscarriage. It was through an action you took that lost the baby.
You also said that you’ve been patient and hopeful that the expansion would happen soon - have you taken the necessary actions to help manifest this desire? Or, have you been more passive, feeling that when it happens, it will happen?
When I turned to Cafe au Soul for some dream interpretation: If it involves a baby, then there is a sense that a new or emerging identity is being abandoned. Dreaming of having or caring for a baby shows the emergence of a new side of you. If you dream of abortion, it will suggest your unwillingness to change, open or transform.
To me, the dream indicates your desire to give up on the dream to expand your business. It’s like subconsciously, you are ready to kill it, even though consciously, you want this. There’s an internal conflict which may be why the new location has not come to pass as of yet.
When I turned to tarot, I pulled the Knight of Cups which cautions you to be careful not to let your heart completely overrule your head. Two questions come to mind - is now the best time to expand your business? Although you desire (heart) to expand, in your dream you took actions (head) to stop the expansion, and in this reality, you’ve been patient and hopeful - both passive “actions.”
The word “fear” popped up for me too - Do you have fear surrounding expanding your business? If we think of your business in the new space as an “emerging identity,” is there fear surrounding what this will look like for you? More space could also mean more responsibility. More clients could also mean more time away from your home and/or family. More money could also mean more ways to lose money. I’m not saying any of this to scare you but sometimes we focus so much on the light-side of something, that we forget that there is a shadow side to everything. We can’t ignore that shadow - we must address it so that we can continue moving towards the light… towards expansion!
My advice is to journal or meditate around some of these questions to see what might arise for you. Shining light on any fears you might have will help keep them from hindering your growth. Then when you ready, take the actions necessary to expand! Research locations, plan how the new space will flow. Grow your client list so that the new place will be filled as well as your schedule! The Universe will support your business expansion when YOU are ready.
