Salam dear Shaykh
In my dream I was about to start a 2-year journey to cross the Sahara on foot. A guide was to accompany me. A journalist wanted to join too, which I was not so enthusiastic about, but might be useful. I woke up feeling excited.
Audhu billahi min ash-shaytan ir-rajim
Bismi-llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm
Wa `alaykumu s-salāmu wa rahmatu l-lāhi wa barakātuh
It shows that you need to take the hand of Murshid Kamil to reach to Divine Presence. The Sahara represents the journey and its difficulties and the journalist represents the ego who will try to take his share by trying to make you focus on visions or spiritual experiences while the ultimate goal is the Allah’s pleasure, and Allah knows best,
