Dreaming of crocodiles

Dreaming of crocodiles

Dear Janet Louise,
My daughter (who is 10 years old) had a dream she was swimming in our backyard pool when a big, green crocodile spoke to her and asked her for a race. The crocodile told her not to be afraid and he was here to help her. She then woke up. We both enjoy reading your column and are interested in your insight.

Dear Kay and Kyla,
What a cool dream! For starters, thank you for stating your age as this does help in the interpretation of this dream. Your sub-conscious state is asking you to let those around you know how you are feeling. If things are worrying or troubling you, don’t be afraid to share this with people you can trust. This is important as you are making the transition to your teenager years. You are embarking on freedom and growth, and also understanding independence and how to use it. Move ahead with awareness and strength. Most importantly, have peace in knowing who you are and how you would like to develop. Enjoy the transition and remember to always be true to yourself.
