Last night I dreamt I was in my old house in Connecticut (I live in New Hampshire now and am actually moving back to CT, but not back to that house). In my house my family was trying to catch a mother crow and her baby who had gotten into the house somehow. My sister told me "use your gifted hands to release the crow" so I extended a finger to the baby crow and it hopped on, grasping my finger with its little feet. The mother flew onto my shoulder and I walked them outside and let them go, but the baby crow was very upset that I had let it go, it wanted to stay inside the house with me.
I think I already know what the dream means, that I'm afraid to use my naturally gifted hands to propel me forward in life, whether it be as a physical therapist, artist or some other kind of healer. The baby crow is my inner child afraid to grow up and let go of old hurt (there's alot of pain I experienced in that house growing up). I also feel that there's unfinished business within my psyche that I need to attend to before I can move on. Though I already have a good idea of what the dream meant, I would very much like an outside and objective opinion. Oh and one more detail I almost overlooked. The house looked as it did when I was a child, we had rearranged furniture often since my mom and dad divorced when I was eleven, so it seems a part of me is stuck at a young age before my parents split. Don't know what this means.
