Usually when I dream about needing to use a phone/messages or really anything involving a password or pin number, I can't remember the password. Or I use old ones that no longer work. So I never get the messages or make the phone call I need to and then I wake up all anxious and annoyed.
In general, this is about communication or a lack thereof. Depending on who I need to reach is what I may have the problem with in the waking world.
But this time, when I needed to contact someone over where I needed to meet them, the phone gave me 2 freebies? All I know is I needed to get my messages and I had 4 waiting. But I couldn't remember the password - then the phone voice said it would give me 2 of them. Enough to figure out where I needed to go and how to get there.
I am not sure what that means yet, but it does seem like some sort of progress :)
Also, I found this article about George Humphrey - a British psychologist who talks about how we don't really memorize things so much as use that muscle memory - we become accustomed to doing something over and over in a certain way, without really thinking about it. Then when you are actually forced to THINK about doing something in a dream, your brain sort of fumbles the ball. He calls it, Hyper Reflection.
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
