Care to interpret my dream?
I had this rather horrifying dream a few days ago during an afternoon nap;
I can’t remember the beginning of the dream since I didn’t write it down right away, but I ended up in an antique store on Main street of the tiny ocean-side tourist town where I currently reside. I am babysitting my boyfriend’s boss’s two-year-old child, or a friend of the child. the kid starts playing with some toys in the store. I go out back where there is a wooden deck, and next to the deck is a Monterey cypress tree(only, with redder bark/wood) which has no needles, but is surrounded by its own sticks, and the needles of a pine tree. past that is the ocean where a circle of women with whom I am familiar are gathered in a circle and beginning a ceremony. they usher me over to join them, but then I remember that I’m supposed to be watching the little boy. I go back inside and he’s fine. I go back outside and drop a candy wrapper at the base of the tree. i go down to retrieve the wrapper, and I grab it. I notice that the tree is dead and then I notice that the ground at the foot of the tree is covered in scorpions then I look down and realize that they are crawling up my legs en masse. I can’t even see my legs past my knees they are stinging me all over my legs. I start to run and try to brush them off but they start stinging my hands as well. I wake up terrified.
