Dream: The Empty Buffet Table

A couple weeks back, I had an amazing dream, it felt like it was full-on movie with multiple sequences, a cast, and so on.  I love to analyze my dreams, and this time when I woke up I just laughed out loud because this dream flooded into my memory sockets I couldn’t believe what I remembered.

Ok, so setting the scene – I’m in some industrial building  to attend a wedding for a friend…I’ve been in this building before.

I go into this large room for the reception and I see all the round tables.  I see a few tables with people sitting them, but they are mostly empty.  At the very front of the room is this long buffet table, and the sister of the bride Marie is at the table.  She’s all nervous, pacing about because she things her sister Jean (the bride) didn’t call someone about the food.  A little time goes by, and the Marie makes the announcement that it’s time to eat.  I get in the food line and as I approach the table, all i see are a few small plates of food, and a very long blue table cloth with nothing on it.  My eyes scan it from right to left…and it’s empty – not a thing on it.


I’m leaving the wedding, and I’m trying to carry a bunch of stuff in my hand – boxes, papers and all I can think about getting some help.  “I just HAVTA find a way to carry all this stuff” I’m thinking.   I go outside and try to call my husband, but I can’t get a signal.   I go back inside, and I see a man pushing a little cart out of the elevator and I think “That’s EXACTLY what I need…!”  I jump in to the elevator, there’s a couple of people on it.  One is a short small woman standing in the corner.  I wonder aloud “Where do I find a cart like that” and the woman speaks to me these words of wisdom: “you can find whatever you like whenever you like, all you need to do it think it and it will appear.”

OF COURSE  I think… So I jump off the elevator and start looking around for a damn cart.  I’m looking all over – in a kids toy bin, in a used furniture area — all still in this industrial building.  I find nothing.


I’m in a school setting, there are classrooms around me.  I’m in the “office” area where the principal office is.  My friend Christine (who passed a few years back) is standing there. She’s got this ring of keys in her hand.  She’s talking to me … but not talking in words…and slides the keys over to me.   I take them, and immediately think that I’m supposed to  give them to the principal. (I’m sure she groaned at me here…) I slip them in my pocket and wait around in front of the principal’s office so I can give them back.  As I’m waiting, I think that just perhaps…these keys are meant for me.  As this thought rolls around, the principal comes out and says “Oh, Julie, I’ve been waiting for you.  Here take this, this is for you.  I’ve been meaning to give it to you.”

She hand me a very old, opened FedEx envelope.  Inside are a bunch of old rebate checks, from like 1999 and so on.  I’m wondering, what the heck am I supposed to do with these checks??  They are all old and not cash-able.  I feel frustrated.


I’m in a house, and I’m looking out the back kitchen window. I see a young girl and a puppy romping around, and they see me in the window and start running to the house.  I open the back door and the dog and girl come bounding in.  There’s lots of laughs and joy in the air.

The dream ends.

The Connections:

1.  Empty buffet table: I’m looking for other people to fill my table.  I need to be self-reliant to fill my “own” table.

2.  Carrying things, needing a cart:  I need to drop some of the things. The point isn’t to take everything with me and definitely not in a cart so I can lug all that stuff around.

3.  The woman in the elevator:  I need to rely on spirit to manifest what I want, not expect physical things to solve the problem.

4.  Keys:  I hold the keys for my life.  Never give them away – there is no authority figure in my life but me.

5.  Old checks:  Money owed to me isn’t going to solve any problems, the moeny in itself is not my “source”.  Spirit is my source, all else is a detail.

6.  Young Girl and Puppy:  More joy is needed in my life. Open the door and let it in.

What may be hard to understand in reading this is how it is relating to my life.  I’m in a transition place and have been living “in between” making a decision.

Whaddya think?  Did you make any connections in this dream  that I may have missed?  I’d love to hear it.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Definitely imagine that that you said. Your favourite justification seemed to be
    at the web the easiest factor to consider of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked while
    folks consider worries that they plainly do not understand
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , other folks can take a signal.
    Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
