The Faceless Man


http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/07/the-faceless-man/

I often dream of this man, a faceless man. His face, I cannot see but deep down inside me, I feel that somehow I know him—whether from the past, the present or the future, I just knew.

This man always manifests in my dreams when I feel doubt or unexplained fear. For those times I seemed to have lost myself and felt there’s no way to go anymore, he’s always there waiting for me, not speaking but communicating through the heart. I can feel his messages but no words were ever spoken. I feel his eyes looking through mine yet I couldn’t see his face, much less his eyes. I just feel his comforting warmth every time he visits me. Most of the time, it’s a welcome gesture for me because he seldom visits me when I’m okay—only for those times I needed someone to assure me that everything will be alright, he never failed to be there. His visits never failed to clear my head and soon after each visit, I feel confident that I can quickly arrive to the right decision for the problem at hand.

Back then, I hoped to find answers:  why he exists in my dreams, who is this man and what’s the man for? Is he a portent of something that will come my way, good or bad? Or he’s just a symbol of hope for me? I tried to find answers and I even willed myself to ask him point-blank, if only I could open my mouth back then. I know I tried several times but I just couldn’t make it. After several attempts, I gave up.

I assessed myself and arrived to a conclusion that I need his presence much more than my need for answers so I let him be. After all, he made me feel good, why would I fight it?
