This is my second dream in a week involving laundry. Perhaps my brain figured since I got the first reference it should keep on with the metaphor. This one isn’t so simple, though.
I was loading up a super duper ginormous washer (industrial size, perhaps) and then as I was putting in quarters I see it requires 45!! quarters. (I just did the math and surprisingly that is only $11.25, I thought it was a lot more). I decided the washer was probably too large anyway, and I wasn’t going to stand there and put in 45 damn quarters. I started to look for 2 smaller washers. It didn’t look like a normal laundromat as I walked around. Each washer stand had a cabinet, not always a visible washer. (Perhaps relevant: At the monastery the washers and dryers were behind cabinets). I think the dream ended while I was walking around….my puppy alarm clock had started complaining to be let out of the crate. 🙂
So, metaphors. I’ve already decided that laundry represents the inside stuff I’m working towards healing. The washer being too big was both a good thing .. in that it means I don’t have as much laundry as I thought, and also is a reference to split the laundry up and tackle it in smaller chunks.
The thing I’m most curious is the number 45. Thank God for Google!
Site 1: 45 It is often involved in banking, or international institutions. It struggles to be comfortable with itself. It can be cynical.
(Amusing, given the number referred to quarters. But I am undergoing some financial challenges.)
Site 2: 45 / 9 makes one’s own investigation, freedom and change, firm foundation, co-operation, harmony, Universal Love, Brotherhood, unfolding, completion, humanitarianism, benevolent, intuitive, selflessness.
…The reason I am “doing the laundry” of course….
Site 3: Angel Number 45 is a message from your angels to put your efforts towards the things in your life that embrace and enhance who you truly are, your lifestyle choices and your life in general. Be prepared to make necessary changes that will bring auspicious opportunities to advance you along your path. Trust that these changes will bring ‘better’ into your life in all aspects.
The most useful answer, and a good reminder. Still vague, though. I guess I’ll stay tuned. I’ve got things to do besides interpret this dream. More will be revealed. 🙂
It could also just mean I should do my laundry today or tomorrow to maintain a manageable weekly-ish practice … before it turns into a giant machine monthly affair, as has often happened in the past. Or all of the above. I really doubt it is only to be interpreted literally, though. 🙂
Moving along with my day. Therapy at 3, a paper due tonight, Thursday afternoon, Monday evening, and a project to finish by Monday as well. Then I get a break.
Contemplating 4 classes next semester since the computer applications in healthcare class will be mad easy for me; my classmates are all like “you should be exempt from that!” Not sure about working full time and going to school full time though. Even though I have a “system” now (studying late night after work) I’m not ready to challenge myself like that, likely more for fear of failure than preserving the idea of a social life. This past semester I’ve slowly let go of the need for copious amounts of free time and weekly-ish sex, though I find I really want at least quality monthly cuddles & copulation. 🙂 I have balanced in some friend time as well this semester. My animals would like to see me, though. Ok, ok. No 4 classes next semester, which means in the fall I’ll likely be taking 2 nursing classes. Meh.
