Cancer Dream: Personal Experience

When it comes to recording your dreams daily you will notice certain patterns and symbol unfold during different stages in your life. Like most cancer dreams they leave you shaken up, even for months down the road. The voice in the back of your head always doubts the metaphoric nature of your dream and wants you to think you have this illness. Though, not to lose focus and remember there is an ignored underlying problem that is not being addressed.

My dream was about a monk (healer) praying and openly telling me that my issues are related to one of three things. One that I could remember was ‘leukemia’ and the other two was fuzzy, I couldn’t remember.  I freaked out saying ‘do I have it’? The monk stood there silent. He mentioned to me that I had died in the past from it. I was freaking out and asking questions until I woke up.

After months passing and being open minded to my personal flaws, something just clicked. I finally understood what the monk was trying to hint at. Like a doctor they are healers, though coded in metaphors. Since leukemia attacks the blood it is hinting at family genetics, hinting at past blood line. Why would it do that? Well genetically there are many traits that have run in the blood line that I was battling.  I have been effected by it and the cause is something that has taken over my body.
