Hello Cheesy
At night i dreamt that i was in a green garden with trees (with fruits and so green) and in the middle a white roundtable. I was near the table and the gods Hermes and Apollo appeared there, in front of me and Apollo began to speak to me. I don ´t remember what he said to me because in the dream i thought that i ´m crazy because the last night also i dreamt with Apollo. I don ´t remember what he said  but i know about what he was speaking, because now i ´m in an important moment in my life, i will change all my life now and he said me what i should do, but i dont remember the exact words because i could not believe my dream in my dream and i stopped it.
I dont know what can means this dream, ok i know that dreams usually show you what you have inside you, the unconscious speak to you but... what can means that during two night i dreamt with Apollo?
Thanks. ^_^

It is not uncommon for deities to appear in dreams.  If the dream had significance for you, then it is worth treating seriously.  Do you have any prior relationship with Apollo?  It may be worth looking into to see if either Apollo or Hermes are calling you.  Being that Hermes often acts as an escort of other deities, it is not unusual for him to be along, but from what I know of him, he does not appear without reason.

First off, no one can tell you what your dreams mean. We can theorize and speculate all we want, and in the end, it would be just a bunch of theorization and speculation.

Moreover, it's pretty much impossible to even begin to guess at what- if anything- those dreams might mean if you don't even remember them yourself.

So I guess all I can really do is ask...

Do you think that you dreamed about the gods showing up, or do you think that they actually inserted themselves into your dreams? Why do you think so?

Have you any interest in these gods? Do you worship them?

It is, of course, also possible that they are merely dreams and don't really carry any particular weight or meaning. It may very well be that you stopped the first dream, and then assigned it some meaning, and your brain decided to repeat it the next night only because of that.

I've had plenty of instances of Apollo showing up in my dreams myself..some very significant, a few not so much- more just that I dreamed him because that's what my brains dug up that night. For me, the dreams that really held some significance had a VERY different feeling than the ones that were "just" dreams.I can tell you how I know there is any significance to them, but I am not you, my dreams are not yours and vice versa.

If you think there is any significance to any of your dreams, it would be prudent to try and avoid stopping them- sticking your fingers in your ears and going "Lalalalala can't hear you!" is not particularly constructive when you want to know what's going on. Even if he dreams seem crazy, keep in mind- they're dreams- they're allowed to be crazy. If the gods are showing up in your dreams, they may very well get crazier yet. (From personal experience, my Apollo dreams tend to be fairly disturbing.)

Thanks.

It would probably help to keep in mind that dreams are not rational things. They're not meant to be. Trying to repress them because they seem crazy is only going to drive you crazy, and may very well end up causing you a lot of stress and confusion.

I'm a devotee of Apollo myself, if you're interested, feel free to have a look at my blog (linked in my .sig)- it hasn't been updated in a while but you might find it interesting.

Well, I don't know the meaning of the dream, but just a wee bit of insight into Hermes... not only does he act as messenger to/from the gods, he does deliver dreams (check Theoi.com about that and for more info on him). He steps between the world of sleep and consciousness... among other worlds.  ^_^
