Dreaming of an Archer
A woman dreamed that she was offered a spot in the National Academy of Archery. The organization needed talent to boost the squad. The Olympics was in sight down the road. The archery team’s coach felt pressure to recruit new trainees to boost the country’s chances of winning medals. Alas, God did not approve of this blueprint. Her bow was damaged by over-extension. Her friend told her not to loosen the string before storing it into the case. The wooden bow became bent and the instrument could not be used to shoot straight. She was no longer the apple of the eye of the archery team coach. The meaning of the dream is that in archery, like in real life, you are taking aim at the target. Sometimes, you miss the target.
