Had this dream yesterday afternoon. Normally I don't remember my dreams as all, and this one has stuck in my head since I woke up yesterday.

 

The Dream:

 

I get off the bus {I think - I don't recall doing it in the dream but thinking in the dream that I did}, and walk my way into this large megachurch in what looks almost like a warehouse. I'm following a guy, and wearing a long skirt/dress and a hoodie with the hood pulled up. {I don't normally wear dresses/skirts}. The church is split in three parts, one I don't remember to the left, protestant {typical non-denominational megachurch} in the center, and to the right there is a wall. The guy goes behind the wall, and I follow. We sit on the floor on steps at the side, and there is a woman teaching about being a Muslim. I am the only other woman there besides the teacher - there are maybe 8 men there. I keep trying to pull my hoodie up over my head to cover myself as much as possible. At one point I move back further because a man sits in front of me and touches my leg with his back. The class ends, and we go out a side door of the church {which now looks totally different like a very old church} and I'm walking away thinking that's all there is to being a Muslim? It's not hard at all. Then I end up walking to catch the bus past a small woods, and that is when I woke up.

 

Any ideas? It's really sticking in my head and I can't get it out.

 

 

FWIW, I'm Catholic. Haven't really thought about converting to anything else, but I have been considering headcovering with Hijab.

I'm not sure why it seems to you as though it should be more meaningful than just as a dream-brain remix of your more conscious thoughts on religion and dress? smile.gif
