Need help on this one!! MY Child on Rollercoaster Ride WiTHOUT being seat belted

Post by Daisy on Sun Apr 12, 2015 11:23 am

I had a dream that I was going on a fun rollercoaster ride with my kids.  I had both kids on each side of me, in these open seated chairs.  There wasn't a bar or anything to hold us in except for these seatbelts that went over our shoulders and snapped at the crotch and at the chest (like an infant carseat would, except the straps were yellow and skinnier).  My daughter was all secured in, and I was too.  I neglected to realize that my son was not buckled at all until the rollercoaster started moving, and the attendant was trying to bring it to my attention.  She started deep breathing, and talking to herself to calm herself down.  She was like, 'Dont panic, this is what you have been trained not to do, dont panic'.  I felt like it was too late for her to stop the coaster, even though it was only going about 3 miles/hour.  I started to buckle him.  Inside I was freaking, trying to buckle him as fast as i could.  It was hard at the angle I was sitting in.  I managed to snap him at the crotch and get one of the fastens near the stomach buckled (I forgot there was an extra buckle at the stomach, like a child saftey strap that snaps at the chest).  I was struggling with the top chest snap.  I couldn't get the two pieces of plastic to connect.  Then I somehow went blank.  It was like I was unresponsive.  I dont know how we got off the coaster, but I found that my son was safe and sound in a playroom of sorts afterwards.  He was playing with one of his best friends.  I am best friends with his mom too, and she was there.  Half of the room had an extremely low ceiling, even the kids had to crawl on that side of the room.  I crawled on my hands and knees to communicate with my son (7yrs old).  While I was in this part of the room with the low ceiling, the outer wall of this place was all glass, which I didn't see when I was standing tall in the other part of the room.  Even though the ceiling was low, somehow the glass went up as high as the rest of the other part of the room somehow.  Its so hard to explain, but I didn't see the high glass wall until climbing on my hands and knees with my son.  I could see that there was an ocean or open water on the outside of this building through the glass. At the end of the dream, my son was ok.  Even though I dont know who it was, someone attended to my child for me and saved his life.  I felt so thankful that he was ok!!!!!  


IRL I am very protective. Maybe a little over protective.  I feel strongly about protecting my kids.  Recently at a family gathering, my step mom made a snide comment about how being over protective isn't going to work out for me.  I wouldn't let my 11 year old and 6 yr old go for a walk with another 11yr old and an 8 yr old around the neighborhood.  First of all, its in about the worst neighborhood in their whole city.  Secondly, the streets are real narrow, and there arent any sidewalks whatsoever.  Thirdly, people drive like maniacs there.. .AND the kids were going to walk down to the public beach UNATTENDED!  Lets not mention, that I grew up in this neighborhood and I know there are a lot of drugs in the area.  And lastly, lets talk about the 5 sex offenders that live in the neighborhood (one of them being convicted for having pedifile pornography ONE street away from her house!!!) I felt judged for not letting them go!  It kind of pushed my buttons a little, considering that her parenting style with us was COMPLETELY opposite of mine.  Instead, when I grew up, we werent protected at all from them.  There was a MAJOR lack of supervision due to her and my dads drug binges, which they would leave 5 kids unattended for days at a time without food!  They had child protective services called on them a couple times due to this.  This just happened two days before my dream...so Im sure this dream is probably triggered from this event.  I will NOT back off as a parent like they did, allowing for much mischief, trouble, and heartbreak to come into my kids' lives.  We had NO guidance as kids.  Nobody asking if we had homework, or if anything was bothering us.   My dad was super involved and overprotective of us before he met my stepmom.  I always felt like she took my dad away from us, and turned him into a druggie.  She has since come to the Lord, but is outspoken and sometimes doesn't think before she says things.  Now my opinion is, its better to be overprotective than under!

Even though I think this dream is somehow connected to this event, I dont feel like Im getting the full meaning or significance of the dream.  Thoughts or comments welcomed.....

I think this dream is about your anxiety, overall.

While there will be things that happen in your life, there is someone invisible who promises (especially in this dream) that He will be there to take care of whatever you can't.

The focus of this dream is on your anxiety and trying to calm yourself while feeling like their well-being is completely up to you but it is not up to you, it is up to God.  Take comfort in His goodness and trust Him.  Cast your cares on Him because He cares for you.

Spend time getting with Him and make a point to tell Him (and yourself) that you trust Him because He is trustworthy.

Homework:   When you feel yourself thinking anxious thoughts you have five seconds (this is from a Christian neurologist) to change your thought pattern. You do that like this: If, every time you think anxious thoughts, you take every anxious thought captive by replacing it with a new, true, positive thought, your mind will rewire itself to think positive thoughts without anxiety.

On a side note, ask the Lord to give you a shield to quench all the fiery darts that come out of your step-mother's mouth. :)

Hugs.

I'm a lousy example of a Christian but a PERFECT example of God's Grace.
