When Zombies Speak

Dreams are answers to questions we haven't yet figured out how to ask.
 ~X-Files



Sometimes there are things we go through in this life that roar like monsters, but in our struggle through the abyss of day to day living they seem to whisper like a shy child.  We become blinded and unaware of the battle within our hands. So we keep stumbling forward unaware of the danger of complacency that lurks around every corner of our lives.

It has been a while now, but I had a dream one night that I felt spoke to me loud and clear about boundaries and responsibilities.  I cannot recall all the details of the dream now, since I have waited so long to document it, but the gut of the meaning behind it is still fresh like a wound that needs tending.  So I will do my best to reveal it here.

As you may be expecting there were zombies in my dream.  Like I have said before, my dreams have many times been stressful if not borderline nightmares, and this one was no different.    I regret now, that I have waited so long to re-tell the dream, because my memory of it has faded greatly, but I do remember the message I got from it. 

I was dealing with zombies all around.  I don't recall the actual plot of what was going on, except there was blood, gore, stress and chaos at every corner.  I was trying to handle the situation.  Taking care of what was right before me, and then it happened; a zombie spoke to me.

A zombie's head was completely off and on the ground.  Yes, I know, kill the brain= kill the zombie, but this is a dream not "zombies 101".  Anyway something in the dream told me to pick up the head.  I wanted to resist, but my pride would not let me.  I had to prove I was brave enough to do it, but as I reached down to pick it up a voice spoke and urgently said, "DON'T that's NOT your head. I CAN pick up my own, you can pick up YOURS!" That is where I woke up.

I realized that I have been futilely trying to pick up the zombie heads in my life.  (All the troubles of those around me that I am not able to fix.)  I could no more replace their heads than buy a Mercedes Benz or solve world peace, but somehow I keep trying anyway.  It is like the bible verse in Matthew 7:5, "Though hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye." 

I suppose there are all kinds of ways we get messages in life.  People around us, the bible, situations that we face, and zombies in our dreams. The only trick is, we have to be willing to truly listen.

  2. Oh this speaks so clearly to me, Carrie. Astounding that your dreams are so clear and give their messages so directly. I would love to be given such a clear message. My life taught me the same lesson.......what is mine to carry, what is others'. Much as we might wish to, we cant solve others' lives, only be there as a support to them. Every word of this resonates with me as deep truth.

  4. I have often had dreams that resonate with the futility of an action repeated over and over again - with the same result . . . the definition of insanity, or so I've heard. What is it about humankind that strives to change that which cannot be changed (so caught in the senselessness, that blatant truth is often overlooked). Another insightful articulation, Carrie.

  5. I have spent way too much time picking up zombie heads. I don't often dream while sleeping. I seem to dream wide eyed. Beautiful piece.

  6. Wow, this is something I've been dealing with today. Your telling of this great too, as our dreams can be described in and for so many reasons!

  7. Our mind is such a wondrous thing... It will choose the most uncanny of ways to try to reach us... We have to be willing to keep our souls' eyes open, so that we can see and choose.

    Love that quote, by the way.

  8. Carrie,

    I have an arrray of dreams too. Usually pleasant and loving, or else, scary. I associate it all with how my day may have been spent, before sleeping. Either way, dreams certainly impact writing topics!!

    Thank you for visiting my Blog Carrie. I appreciate your faithfulness:)
