The Baby Dream

By Dianefergurson
The Baby DreamI had a dream the other night that I was carrying around a baby.  A chubby, healthy, adorable little baby. Everyone who saw the infant immediately fell in love it.  In my dream I carried this baby with me everywhere I went.  I fed and changed it.  Watched over it.  Nurtured it.  Toted this child around with me constantly, no matter where I went or what I was doing. 
I've been interpreting dreams fairly accurately for myself and others for a long time, and I know enough about the symbolism involved that I immediately knew that my "baby" did not literally mean a "real" human infant.  Although the symbols that are involved with dreams may vary from person to person, due to points of reference and cultural beliefs, most primary symbols remain pretty constant.    
A baby in a dream, for example, symbolizes an idea or project that is in it's infancy or beginning stages.  If your project or idea is still small, and you are nurturing it's growth and continually working on it, then in your dream you will be "caring for your baby".  In your dream if you are dropping the baby, then you are dropping a valuable idea or's a warning.  Bathing and changing the baby means cleaning up any mistakes or messes you have made, and sometimes starting over.  Too many babies in your dream refers to taking on too many projects or having too many ideas, goals, responsibilities or problems to effectively handle at one time.  If you loose the baby, it means that you are loosing sight of your dreams and ideals.  You may want to step back and re-evaluate what you are doing in your life.  If you kill the baby, you are sacrificing something that is important to you and may want to ask yourself if your decision is really worth it.
If you are interested in dreams and what they may be try to tell to you, and good book to pick up is "The Mystical, Magical, Marvelous World of Dreams" by Wilda B. Tanner.  This is an older book (originally published in 1988), but it came highly recommended to me by some serious dream folks at the New Age Center in Sedona some years ago. It is very practical, reliable, and easy to understand.  As an aside, it really is important to be very careful what books you purchase on dreams, metaphysical topics or spirituality in general.  Make sure the author is experienced and credible.  I've read outstanding books by exceptional authors on many subjects, and others that have been just downright goofy.
Getting back to my dream baby... Yes, I knew exactly what my dream was referring to.  It's a creative project I have been consistently working on for a long time.  It's been slow going, and the project has been slowly growing, but it is basically still in it's infancy.  Everyone who see's what I've been up to falls in love it - that fat, healthy, cute baby from my dream. I think the Universe was just sending me a message to keep going and be patient.  That things are coming along just fine!
