Dreaming of protecting children

Dreaming of protecting children

Dear Janet Louise,
I have the same recurring dream where I have James Bond-like abilities. I am always protecting a child and am usually successful until the end when another child needs to be saved. I have to choose between them, which is when I wake up. Would appreciate any insight you can give me.

Donna, via email

Dear Donna,
This dream is suggesting your need to accept the lovely qualities of nurturing and love you have. Break down the wall you have around you and acknowledge it’s time to let others in. No more escaping from your reality – realise the lovely person you are and start sharing and showing your emotional side.
