I stood in front of a table covered with all manner of delectable sweets. Cake, candies, beautiful, dazzling, glittering, all colors of the rainbow, and so delicious…

I went along the table sampling the delicacies generously. I took particular interest in the carrot cake and cheesecake.

When I woke up, I thought that I might have a troubling day… In Belsebuub’s dream symbol guide, he mentions that eating sweets can be a symbol for bitterness and suffering.

I had no idea how true that was.

That day turned out to be extremely painful. I had heated arguments that become hostile and emotional, leaving me feeling cut up, defeated, and worthless by the end of the day. I was so drained…

I wondered, what is the point of seeing bad symbols in dreams, when nothing can be done to avoid them? It’s like being able to predict a horrible future, but not to be able to do anything about it.

Not more than a few days later, I had a nearly identical dream with a buffet of various sweets that I went around sampling.

Waking up the following morning, I knew I did not want to repeat that horrible day. I resolved to not allow myself to suffer in that way, and redoubled my efforts to practice awareness of the present moment and self-observation.

By bringing my focus to these spiritual techniques, I thought I might stand a chance of being detached enough from my emotions that things wouldn’t spiral out of control.

Sure enough, situations came up that practically begged for an emotional response, but this time I was prepared, and I didn’t take the bait.

The situation quickly diffused, became amicable, and the second horrible day I could have had never happened!
