Dream Interpretation: Escaping with kangaroo

I am in a compound of some kind…are we captives? We’re going to get out, me and the grey kangaroo. He is massive, very large, and I am riding his back – odd, in that he feels huge and yet barely large enough to hold me (I must be large?). Difficult to hold on, precarious, I adjust myself a lot as he is moving. We are in the streets of Burlingame (where I grew up), it’s nighttime, streetlights, we are escaping it feels like. I sense a deep love and connection between us, though a strange apprehension as well. His fur is very distinct to me, he seems so delicate on the top part of his body and so stable on the lower half. – Kelly

Life feels like captivity to you right now, but your magical and wise higher self is helping you break out. Grey is the color of wisdom, and the kangaroo represents your own higher wisdom and mind-body-spiritual energy. The kangaroo seems “large” and so do you to represent the importance and potency of wisdom and freedom to your psyche. You must have freedom of expression, absence of inhibition, no holding back. Part of this inability to express yourself freely stems from your childhood, thus the dream’s setting of your childhood hometown. Something in your past is affecting your feeling of being “captive” and needing to escape free. The wisdom of the ages is your faithful rescue. The deep connection is from your everyday self to your higher self, your god-self. You are slightly apprehensive because you have not fully utilized your higher wisdom-self before. This new personality has come to you like a dispensation and will never leave you. It brings earthly stability and surety to your situation, whatever it is, but also the delicate complexities of the heart. You will have stability and love, in other words as you succeed in breaking free from the “compound” that has been holding you back.

Very interesting! I am indeed feeling very ‘captive’ and ‘held back’ due to some financial/home issues building for years now (pending foreclosure, which is also creating stress on my marriage as we argue over what to do, etc. We have been in limbo, and I am a person of action). And while I actually have a deeply spiritual life and connection with my Higher/God Self, I have been going through a whole new level of opening up to my spiritual purpose and gifts (my work as an intuitive healer is taking off — breaking free! ;>), and it’s exciting but sometimes overwhelming as I adjust (“how do I ride this?”).

I am feeling pulled between the wisdom that guides me to let go and move on, to trust what we will find ‘out there’ if we have to move — and the situation at hand with my partner, wanting essentially to ‘not leave the compound’. Also, between expanding into the growing intuition and work I’m doing, and staying ‘safe and small.’ This dream and the interpretation reminds me that I need to continue to trust my higher wisdom as it will ‘carry’/show me the way, to continue to move forward,  even if I’m struggling to hold on, as it indeed will lead me through. 

Also, the town in this dream is actually where I ‘came into my power’ and ‘broke free’ after some years of intense struggle as a youth: It mirrors the precipice I’m on right now! I didn’t see this connection at all before.  Thank you — very helpful!
