That Chinese man may have been one of your guides, especially now that you are studying Chinese medicine. Gifts from our guides are very precious, but it is up to you to figure out their significance. Please try to find this man again when you are in the spirit realm and ask him about the recorder. It may symbolize your voice, or may contain healing talents. Or something else that has yet to occur to me. Interesting dream, Inari.
Jax, I am very sorry you did not get that engineering position, but am praying hard that something else will come your way, something better.
Most of my dreams have to do with food, now that I am dieting and I am seeing a lot of serpents – I am deathly afraid of them IRL but know that they represent wisdom in certain circles, and latent sexuality in others.
