Color Me Green

The kitchen is green. I kid you not. And I don’t mean environmentally-friendly. I mean Kelly-a** green. GREEN is everywhere! The beadboard is green. The cabinets are green. The trim and quarter-round? Green. It’s like St. Patrick’s Day exploded in there.

And then, thank God, I woke up. That really scared the be-jesus out of me! After all this work, can you imagine walking in to find a wild shade of green painted everywhere? Me either. Whew! That’s how I started my day.

It was so real, that when I woke up, I could feel my heart racing. (Obviously, that kitchen would have been attractive only to a leprechaun, so I can understand why I was so stressed.) So, out of curiosity, I looked around to see what I could find about dreaming about the color green or of dreaming about a kitchen. This was about the most valuable “green” explanation I found.

Color meanings of green in dreams often point us in the direction of growth, healing, love, giving, and inspiration. When we dream of green we're experiencing levels of healing and growth that are subtle. It's time to concentrate on the areas of our lives that need to flourish. Hmmm. So what exactly am I being told here?

Then I found this explanation for dreaming about a kitchen. Houses in dreams generally represent the dreamer (dreamer = house). The kitchen is the heart of the house. For most families, the kitchen is a place of warmth and nourishment (emotional as well as physical). Examine the conditions of your dream kitchen and you may become aware of some emotional needs and feelings toward yourself and others.

This little gem made me laugh: To dream of a kitchen denotes you will have unexpected guests that will need to be entertained. Well, with all the work I’ve got to do, they’ll be entertaining themselves! Or, I can just hand them a paint brush or something!

But I think this one might be the closest to reality. To see a kitchen in your dream, signifies your need for warmth and spiritual nourishment. It may also be symbolic of the nurturing mother or the way that you are caring for your loved ones. Alternatively the kitchen, represents a transformation. Well, yes, there's definitely one of those under way!

When we dream of kitchens it may be a message to spend more quality time with those who are close to us. Or, it may indicate we need to take the time to feed ourselves better (physically AND philosophically).

Well, I certainly CAN’T argue with that! Message received …

I never mentioned this to you before, but once, months ago, I dreamed of your completed kitchen. I think it was before you even started your kitchen. I must have been up late that night, blog reading.

It turned out nice.
