    Our dearest Mikey,

    I believe that this dream of yours is telling you that you need a break, a vacation and time off before you may start feeling the same way about TCC as you did about the job in your dream. Maybe the check from the car insurance company is a way of telling you that you NEED a break before you get so tired, worn out and stressed out, that you get into a car accident. You do so much for others, and it seems like you’re always go, go, go, go. You and Daniel need to take a nice, relaxing, possibly tropical vacation, if that’s your thing (frozen drinks with umbrellas, sand, and water sounds fabulous), by yourselves! When I say “by yourselves”, I mean just that, just the 2 of you. No work stuff allowed, turn your cell phones, tablets, and laptops off. Do not even think about work!

    I think you need a real break. A total break from TCC. I think deep in our psyche, or not deep at all, you’re wondering WHERE all this will lead. I think you’re conscience is wondering if you need ‘more’…a bigger challenge, perhaps. You’ve done so much for so many so taking a break can reinvigorate that by allowing you time to think about all you’ve done without interruption of what it is that you do….sort of taking a look at your life from another realm. If a good break doesn’t provide anything ‘grand’ then maybe diversifying somehow?

    Did something happen that made you feel like you felt when working at that old office? If so, think to yourself what was it, could be your body warning you, you are entering that “stage” again, wanting to move to other things (and I don’t mean about your hubby of 20yrs, but inspiration wise)

    The kid in what was your office could be that back then you were behaving like childish in some situations (not in a positive way)

    In your dream you felt like you had gone the next day to work, and saw in a box/garbage The Crochet Crowd, I don’t know if it existed back then or if back then you were with Diva Dan, if you were and you were fighting that day you “left” the old job, adding to your stress, if he wasn’t there then it is your subconseous reminding you he is here with you (present time), same with the crochet crowd, it was a reminder of your present, could be “trash” to others, but you grabbed it and kept it with you because you felt it was something important.

    All in all seems that you are stressing a lot, especially with the upcoming cruise, try to relax, and don’t let little things turn something you love into something stressful 🙂

    What fantastic answers you have received! Not an analyzer of dreams myself, but I am thinking that all these fans have nailed it. I’m so glad I found the Crochet Crowd and you. 🙂

  • July 14, 2015 at 8:12 am

    I tend to think differently than most, so here’s my go at it:

    The CC mail was already perceived as “junk” in your mind, but somebody had opened it before you got there. Could your subconscious be telling you that other people have ruined something for you? (Like with a recent FB post where people decided to be not-so-nice when you had good intentions?)

    So, that leaves you questioning the CC, but the point is: You still see it paying out, even if others see it as an accident.

    Maybe extra stress leaves you wondering about Dan, too. Another commenter wrote that Christmas signifies family and reunion… And in your dream you wonder “Who is Daniel? When was was I on a cruise?”…Hello! That’s your brain saying you need a vacation! Here’s to hoping you and Dan can go on a nice relaxing getaway.

    And the most important part of it (to me) is: Don’t go back to the old place, or you might forget the way out.

  • July 14, 2015 at 2:11 am

    I read this a couple times to make sure I was reading everything carefully. Past work related dreams signifies current stress at a current job. Your mind dug up the old stress to signal you that you are stressed. Dreaming of still working at an old job means there is a lesson to be learned that can or may apply to your current job. I really think that the past employee was a key sentence in all this. I believe that ‘possibly’ the lesson to be learned is that there will always be negative people and you have to just do what you think is right, be yourself, and love/like the one’s that love/like you back, and that you can’t please everyone. The money part in my thinking is the reward part of the dream. You seen through your dream that the old job is not where you needed or want to be; the money showed you this with the checks. So the jist of this in my reading about your dream is you are exactly on the path you need to be on. Less stress is easy to say, but hard to obtain. You need more ‘you’ time to untangle, unwind, and be Mikey for a day a week at least.

    Mikey, do you feel overwhelmed at times? Sit back & take a break once in a while. Well all still be here. The dream is very complex but what I’m worried about is that you’re always “on”…not in a bad way but your schedule must be exhausting. Don’t want to see you “crash”. Pace yourself. Ok enough motherly advice. Just let me thank you for all that you do for us! Hugs!

    This is your mind’s way of telling you that you have made the right choices in life. Daniel and The Crochet Crowd. You’re spot on with what you’re doing and the dream is confirmation of that – the trash/junk mail. Finding checks with The Crochet Crowd on them, etc… The dream is saying don’t go back to that bad situation in which you weren’t living your personal truth.

  • July 13, 2015 at 4:56 pm

    I will give you the Native American interpretation, or at least one that comes from learning from my Grandfather.

    Your psyche was telling you that the old job was garbage. Nothing was good except checks pertaining to the Crochet Crowd. The car symbolizes the good that is coming by leaving that place.

    The Crochet Crowd and Daniel are the sunshine through the putrid. You are grateful for your job and your husband.

  • July 13, 2015 at 3:32 pm

    I found this article interesting. The responses are all positive, Very good.

  • July 13, 2015 at 3:03 pm

    I have not read any of the other replies about your dream yet. Here is my take on this.
    Your life will be going in a different direction , you are not sure about the opurtunity this will bring you. It is something you already have talked about or tossed the idea around with others. Someone put the idea down and that bothers you. But don’t bother listening to them, they are jealous of you success that you have already.
    When you travel this idea will become more clear . Diva Dan will be behind you 100%. You will be doing something you love and making money ! Try not to over think things when this offer comes along as it won’t be on the table for ever. Take a chance . I do not do this professionally.

    Its interesting that your dream was right around Christmas. Here is what “Dream Moods Dream Dictionary” had to say about Christmas. I know it was just a little side note but I think that every aspect of a dream can have a big meaning. Love ya Mikey, follow your dreams. 🙂
    = To dream of Christmas symbolizes family togetherness, reunions, celebration, peace, goodwill, generosity, and human kindness. It is also representative of new beginnings and fresh starts. Consider also your own associations with this holiday.

  • July 13, 2015 at 12:36 pm

    If a dream is a wish your heart makes then maybe this dream shows you that you wished you had the courage to leave your job sooner, find Daniel and start your fabulous life together as happy hookers? Just my opinion here, I am by no means any sort of dream expert lol.

  • July 13, 2015 at 12:07 pm

    I see a lot in this dream. Going back to your old job, your old ways, is not an option. You no longer belong there. You have grown up. BUT during your time there it was perceived that further pursuit of The Crochet Crowd was just trash talk. Even though there was financial gain in all that “trash”. It was at that time perceived that working and running something as fulfilling as The Crochet Crowd was a car accident waiting to happen. That you had to be brain damaged to think such things. And Daniel evidently didn’t exist at that time so he didn’t fit in the picture of what distressed you so terribly. You realize you don’t belong there and try to leave but can’t find your way. You need to toss out the old unpleasant memories of this place with their trash and their unsupportive ways. Turn around and focus on The Crochet Crowd, your Daniel, and the blessings that are coming in to help you financially. Don’t be ashamed to enjoy what you do now. No more stickers on the desk. You have grown and are being blessed for it! Daniel has pleasantly taken the place of the former non supportive coworker. Now isn’t that a blessing? 😀

    I remember recently the issue with the tutorial you re-did and how bad you felt when it happened… So I think maybe you were second guessing yourself bc of your guilt for not putting in your all which took you back to how you felt at that job but your subconscious made it clear to you that you didn’t belong there and it kept reminding you of the crochet crowd one of you biggest accomplishments and they way you got to live your dreams! It was kind of a refocusing like you did that and you hated it and no matter how overwhelmed you feel this is your dream and you are capable and you do put your all into one mess up doesn’t mean anything we are not built to be perfect!

  • July 13, 2015 at 11:07 am

    Hi Mikey,
    This is a fantastic dream! Your conscious self in your waking hours today will see that even the most overwhelming day at The Crochet Crowd is better than a day at the factory.

    Visiting your past in a dream is always your subconscious telling your conscious mind that you are headed in the right direction. It shows you, showing yourself a better life in your waking hours where it counts.

    A dream like this makes you pay attention to your satisfaction with decisions in your waking hours when your mind is alert. Don’t fret, I believe in you because I know that you believe in the importance of the Crochet Crowd…it’s big and it’s all you…be proud.

  • July 13, 2015 at 10:25 am

    Ah, dreams are so random! I think they usually don’t mean anything at at—just the brain sifting and recataloging things. Although my dreams are sometimes puzzling, they make me think about earlier events or situations, which are clearer now with the benefit of hindsight and experience.

  • July 13, 2015 at 10:13 am

    A dream is just a dream, nothing more than your mind running wild while you sleep. Did Diva Dan make you a martini again? hahaha enjoy the reality of what good happens in life!

  • July 13, 2015 at 10:10 am

    I love the answers you have gotten so far. I for one have learned a lot from you. I have been crocheting for 40 years and cannot believe how much I have learned from you. Keep up the good work. I personnel feeling is, maybe you are trying to do to much. Take a breather now and then. We will survive if we don’t have so much information on facebook.

  • July 13, 2015 at 9:57 am

    ok, so here is what I see: the junk mail is telling you to stop focusing on minor details, that you are paying too much attention to the “junk”. being at your old job with that cranky coworker, it makes me wonder if there was something you learned from that situation that you have lost sight of, maybe.

  • July 13, 2015 at 9:55 am

    My impression is that there is some aspect in your life now that is disturbing you. Something that may be part of CC but not necessarily. Hence the reference to your previous job. Think about what is really causing you issues and see if whatever that is resolves the problem.

  • July 13, 2015 at 9:52 am

    The comments already posted probably have done a good analysis. My question for you is – Did you eat ice cream before you went to sleep? Ice cream = weird dreams for a lot of people.

  • July 13, 2015 at 9:07 am

    My thought is you feel awful about the garden tote initial video. You take your role as the principal of the crochet crowd VERY seriously and you are sad for disappointing folks. You are relating it to your previous employment. Take heart Mikey! I am amazed at your dedication and time spent to bring happiness to so many. I don’t know how you keep up with the crazy schedule you keep. Instead of counting sheep at night count the number of followers you have inspired. With much admiration, Erica

    • July 13, 2015 at 12:44 pm

      You are doing a lot more with Yarnspirations then your tenture with Red Heart. The speed of new patterns and videos is amazing; however, impacting your regular scheduled events. There is something about this company that is challenging and I could see you with them as a permanent employee verses the impact on the Crochet Crowd. You have been stressed about that error on the video and the unkind responses. Unfortunately as the world is, we have members who are rude, sharp-eyed and treated you like that old employee. It’s okay, a mistake happens…we are human. Do your thing and keep going!

  • July 13, 2015 at 8:58 am

    I suspect that you have been experiencing some stress at work (Crochet Crowd ). Feeling bogged down, over worked and under appreciated? Wondering that maybe you may as well go back to 9to5ing and at least get the big money for feeling the same stresses? Your brain is trying to sort the pros and cons so that your heart can make an informed decision..
    May I suggest identifying which area of your work is causing you the most stress and which areas of stress can be reduced. Remember you are human …. not Superman! Allow others to take the strain. You have achieved so much …. try to enjoy it. 🙂 Remember you are loved. Xxx

  • July 13, 2015 at 8:54 am

    Mikey the way I see it, your letting go of the garbage that was in your life. What your dream is telling you is, the life you have right know is ware your supposed to be. Are dreams do tell us things that have meaning and yours is to let the bad out. What you do for all of the Crochet Crowd is a gift form God. He put you there and knows your the best at what you do. Your teaching everyone new and exciting things, that so many have learned to go out of there comfort zone and are crocheting amazing things that you have tought so many, and we all love you for your talent when you have that bad dream say a pray after it with take it away. God Bless the Crochet Crowd.

  • July 13, 2015 at 8:43 am

    You may have seen or met someone recently that brought you subconsciously to the place and person that made you feel upset. In my opinion, your dream is letting you know that you’ve learned how to let difficult situations go and grow from them. You are in a much better place, have essentially grown up and can take on challenges. Some of your posts lately have had a few apologies in them and perhaps that has been bothering you too much. You have a very loyal and happy following and have learned how to reach out to all of us with your creativity, wit and charm. Your dream may be telling you that you’ve closed that chapter of your life and have so much more ahead of you. Smile and have a great week. 🙂

  • July 13, 2015 at 8:26 am

    I think your present self just revisited your past self so that you can take a look around you & understand how you came to be where you are & appreciate where & who you are now. You seem to be so much happier in your present self than you were in your past self. You were not appreciated in your past, but you are treasured in your present.
    It is a pretty complex dream. But it is simple in that you love yourself & where you are more now than you did then. It was just a reminder for you that no matter how crazy it sometimes gets for you here in the present, at least you are happy & you like yourself here in the present.
    You are DEFINITELY appreciated here in your present self!

  • July 13, 2015 at 8:22 am

    My husband always says dreams are just a way of the brain having equilibrium. You are in a good/brilliant place now with someone you love and who loves you in a job you love. In order to give balance you remember the stress and feelings of your job which you disliked….but so you don’t get the devil on your back (depression) your brain is sending you the letters and cheques showing that life is better and you are getting paid for your passion

  • July 13, 2015 at 8:09 am

    Do you always double check yourself? Mostly your Dream tells me that although you know you’re on the right path for yourself, there’s a part of you that is revisiting your past just to make sure. Are you secretly afraid that CC might not be a ‘real’ job and that you might have to go back to a 9-5er? Many people have unconscious beliefs ie grow up, get a job etc, raised by a society that dictates working for someone else etc.
    I also suspect the opposite is true, that you know where you’re going, and happy to be going there, and revisiting your past was a way to clean up some garbage. Is there a lesson to be learned that you need to be made aware of? Possibly that you are who you are, you do what you do and that’s fabulous so accept that and enjoy!

  • July 13, 2015 at 8:05 am

    I think it’s telling you that you are where you should be – you are following your passion so don’t try to go back to any other job that causes you stress because it will be your downfall. Any job that is not your passion will be like a car wreak waiting to happen. Stay with your passion and everything will be OK – you are doing the right thing! 🙂

  • July 13, 2015 at 8:04 am

    It’s pretty clear to me that, whenever you have stray thoughts about quitting the Crochet Crowd and going back to a “real job” that pays well, you need to remember all the joys and benefits that bring you happiness with the Crochet Crowd, and also to remember the troubles and grief of working a regular job, that aren’t always worth the good salary. Sometimes there are Crochet Crowders who are a bit snarky, but you are learning to handle difficult people on your own terms and I think you are pretty good at it (lots of practice!). Hang in there, you are where you are supposed to be, and if you have any doubts when you wake up after a dream like that, just check your email for a bit. You’ll see how many people need you right where you are!

  • July 13, 2015 at 8:04 am

    I am NOT a person who analyzes dreams but I do think that dreams come from your subconscious. The job happened in your past and the dream focused on the past and the present. Perhaps it was just a reflection on how that job did not suit you, and how the job you are in now it does. Likely you were not happy during that time in your life, and you are now.

  • July 13, 2015 at 8:00 am

    In looking at this dream, you sometimes cannot believe where you are today and the life you have made for yourself. You are such a different person, a better person, than you were when you were at that company…but sometimes you still feel as if you never left. Sometimes you allow the naysayers and bullies, such as that other employee, to get under your skin and it makes you feel as young, vulnerable, insecure and unhappy as you were when you were at that company.

    Seeing all the reminders of The Crochet Crowd and the life you have now was your soul’s way to remind you that you are where you are now because that is where you are meant to be. To be anywhere else would feel false and ‘wrong’ to you. It is remind you to enjoy where you are and the life you have now, for you have worked hard to be true to yourself and do what makes your soul sing. You are an example to others who wish to do the same.

    In love, light and peace,
