I Am Told I Have Breast Cancer
Recurring Dreams About Having Breast Cancer
I have had three recurring dreams about breast cancer, and it is always the left breast.
In the first dream, someone was trying to kill me, then at the end of the dream I expose my breast and say, “I have breast cancer.”
In the second dream I was getting ready for work, trying to hide my uneven breasts because of swelling. When I got to work my boss told me I needed to go home because of my diagnosis. I answered that I wanted to work and be normal.
In the third dream I was shopping with a friend. While trying on clothes my left breast was exposed. The friend asked what was wrong with my breast. I said “Nothing, it's just a pimple.” She said “D_____, you have breast cancer.”
Felt it was a warning and I should go get a breast exam.
Main Life Issues:
Cancer survivor of 7 years, financial stress.
In real life I have no worries so I am shocked by these dreams, I think they are warning me to get a mammogram. I am very intuitive and normally my gut feelings are right. I can't make sense of these dreams any other way except as ESP warnings because it is the same breast and the same diagnosis each time.
Someone keeps confronting something they do not want to face.
Recurring dreams: Repeated messages that signal something important that needs your attention.
Breast: The actual body part or a symbol of nurturing and love.
Cancer: An illness, something that needs urgent medical attention.
Exposing a breast: Revealing something private, normally hidden.
Told to go home: Instructions to look after oneself; a message that something personal needs attention.
Pimple: Something annoying that does not look good; in this dream, minimizing a problem as a way to run from the truth.
What the dream Means:
You are right, it sounds like an ESP warning and dreams about health tend to have direct, literal images as appear in these dreams. Getting a repeated message flags something important and when words are spoken in a dream, the message tends to be literal.
If the dream were symbolic, it would be a message about nurturing and caring more for yourself. You may be someone who gives your love, time and attention to everyone else, yet little to yourself.
Bottom Line: The dream could be symbolic, but it sounds like a heads up and it would be a good idea to see a doctor. Dream warnings often arrive in time to keep the worst from happening.
