Dream 465: Making decisions about life and relationships
I recently interpreted the following dream:
“I was at some formal event dressed to the nines with my buds, and we were uphill from a dancefloor that was connected to where we were with a sidewalk (all of this was outside).
It seemed like a prom, but it was different architecture, so I’m thinking it was kind of like a wedding.
The important part was that we were all uphill because our friend (let’s just call him Bob) was throwing up in small bouts repeatedly. We were trying to figure out what to do and trying our best to be supportive.
This was all interrupted by a man with a deep voice (one of the other guy’s father’s I assumed in the dream) shouting as he came over a hill that was slightly higher ground than where we were.
He was shouting as if this guy in our group was in trouble about something. It was one of those bouts of shouting so reprimanding that you kind of feel in trouble yourself, even though it’s not directed towards you.
Somewhere after that I woke up but that’s all I remember.
I would love interpretations, especially involving myself, because it seemed like the dream was showing me something about these two guys…
“Bob” is now in a relationship that he is going to try to take through college, but I don’t think will work out.
The kid getting yelled at is apprenticing to become a pastor, and his Dad is passively rich through ownership of a lot of stock in a company.”
My interpretation of the dream
At the first level of dream interpretation, each character represents a different part of yourself. The part of yourself similar to Bob is a part that should give up on relationships that are not good if they’re making you sick. This part of yourself, Bob, is it is in danger of going downhill if he doesn’t rid himself of negative emotions.
Vomit is a combination of water and food. Water in dreams is invariably emotions. Food is nurturance. Vomit is spoiled nurturance that is no longer good for us and must be expelled. The dream is saying to get rid of negative relationships because it will bring you down hill otherwise.
Your friend Bob who is also a part of you is getting rid of something that was once nurturing, but is no longer good for you and just is making you sick. In any case, it is a statement of advice for now or for the future.
His father reprimanding the guy becoming a pastor is your inner father introject that wants you to succeed financially (like he has) and doesn’t want you to do too many altruistic things (symbolized by wanting to be a pastor) that are too self sacrificing.
A dance setting is usually about how you are going to engage with others in life. He is making decisions about staying with relationships that make you sick. He is also deciding to do what he wants in life (helping others) or going for the money.

I have completed my first draft of “MS Mission Remission: Healing Multiple Sclerosis Against All Odds” and received the following review of the first draft:
“MS MISSION REMISSION” by Dr. Fox was both a pleasure and an eye opener to the many aspects of how MS develops and can be managed. The deep insights he provides into his personal and family dynamics are powerful indicators of how dis-ease can be instilled and manifest later in various ways, from psychological to physical trauma. His ingenuity, spiritual insights and dogged determination to regain his life from the debilitating toll of MS is both inspirational and instructive. A very good read from many perspectives! -Dale Miesen, BA, Psycholgy & Philosophy”

Dream 463: Do I need to be less verbally aggressive?
A woman had the following dream:
“I had the weirdest dream! I was taking care of my brother who had recently become paralyzed ( in the dream, pray that doesn’t ACTUALLY happen) I had to bring him to my regular cleaning dental appointment. As the dental hygeniest walked away to obtain her tools or whatever, this dog ( yes, in THE DENTIST OFFICE) comes bites me on the leg and arm aggressively. So the Hygeniest comes back behaving nonchalntly about the incindent, as if what just happened shouldn’t be a concern! I’m thinking, “WHY IS THERE EVEN A DOG IN A DENTAL OFFICE!”
At the first level of dream interpretation, each person in the dream is a part of your mind. Men tend to go more with action parts of the Mind. Animals usually represent your instincts. This dream is all about teeth in many ways.
First you were getting your teeth cleaned. Secondly, the dog attacks you with teeth. I think in this case, the teeth are being recognized as a defensive or aggressive part of your personality. That your brother is paralyzed, I believe, means that the dream does not want you to act on anger you may have towards some situation. What is notable about this is I think your subconscious doesn’t want you to react with anger even if others are showing anger towards you in a certain situation.
Your subconscious wants you to keep everything clean and above board, at least above the jawline, which I think is a way of emphasizing there that wants you to not show aggression too much in what you say.
In this case, the dream may be overly dramatic to make a point. That is, someone may attack you in anger verbally, but your subconscious believes it will be healing for you not to react in anger. The reason I think healing is involved is because a medical professional is involved.
The dental hygienist represents the part of you that wants you to clean up your mouth, to put it frankly, because dreams are seldom subtle about making a point. The reason I believe it is mostly verbal anger is because the mouth is involved, both in regard to your teeth being cleaned, and the dog attacks you with its mouth.
Dreams frequently give advice if you ask for it at http://www.drstevenfox.com
What follows is my answer to a young man to the above question.
“I am going to give you a hopeful answer based on 26 years of living with this disease. I was on all the ABC-R medications, but continued to get steadily worse. By the time I had it for 10 years, it was evident that it was primary progressive multiple sclerosis by the intensity of the symptoms. I had a plastic brace the length of my right leg, numbness in arms and legs, used a four-point cane, and needed a wheelchair for anything like flying and going to the airport. If I ventured out to see sights like Las Vegas, I was able to see the sights only because kind relatives pushed me in a wheelchair.
The critical thing to know is that I believe MS is probably due to a large number of converging factors. Make medicine your base and aid it with alternative methods that do no harm and can do a lot of good. I still have MS, but MS does not have me. At this time, I have no major symptoms after 26 years, but that does not mean you stop taking the medicine. I continue to have Tysabri infusions every six weeks, am married, and have a full time private practice as a clinical psychologist. My blog where I mostly interpret dreams, but now will also post about my book about my MS experience, is at http://www.drfoxblog.com
It is an overwhelming diagnosis. Give yourself time and develop whatever spirituality you have. Medicine + alternative approaches + good relationships + spirituality + meaningful work was my personal formula to functional healing. Some part of that might be part of your solution. My book is really about some ways of finding what is right for you which will be personally unique.”
My approach to living successfully with multiple sclerosis will be described in my coming book “MS Mission Remission: Healing of Multiple Sclerosis Against All Odds.” Significant progress with the book will be reported on this website, http://www.drfoxblog.com

Dream 462: This repetitive boring job is bad for my mental and physical health
A man had the following dream:
“I dreamt that I had an alcoholic drink of either Whiskey or Brandy. The beverage was strange in that it had two different kinds of tastes in it. There was a before taste at the beginning and an after taste at the end.
The truth is I do not drink any alcohol at all in my waking life, and not even on special occasions as I think alcohol tastes bad for one and the other is for health reasons.
There was a cool to the taste in the beginning and a warmer or hotter after taste, I think the after taste was slightly bitter, I am not sure though. All I know is that it changed my perception and mind set.
As it made me feel sour all day as I was depressed and frustrated at work and complaining to people at work that I feel like a robot.
Alcohol is also referred to as “spirits” sometimes and it is liquid (emotions) so I wonder if you were engaging in an emotion and/or behavior that was addictive or repetitive that you initially liked, but then it was almost too much to swallow and left a bad taste in your mouth. This is a random guess made with a small amount of information.
Sounds like the job was ok to begin with, but it became repetitive and is bad for your physical and mental health, much like alcohol if you do it too much for too long.

Most times you have to find what is causing the darkness…
“Enlightenment consists not merely in the seeing of luminous shapes and visions, but in making the darkness (occult) visible. The latter procedure is more difficult and therefore, unpopular.”
~ Carl Jung
Dream 461: Enough Planning already
A man had the following dream:
I had a dream I was sleeping on a couch. Then I looked at the floor and I saw a turtle trying to get away from a tarantula. The turtle was too slow and the tarantula started to attack the turtle. Any idea of what this means ?
Animals at the first level usually represent the dreamer’s instincts. A turtle represents defensiveness because it’s surrounded by a shell. A turtle also represents slow but steady progress. A spider usually represents planning in the sense that it builds webs to catch its victims. A tarantula is aggressive often.
I would say your subconscious wants you to aggressively pursue some goal and not take the slow and gradual approach for now. I’m taking it that the trantula caught the turtle. I am guessing that your subconscious is getting impatient with a slow gradual defensive approach and wants you to plan forceful action.

Dream 460: Give me a spiritual home “Where the Buffalo Roam”
The Native Americans so the Buffalo as a sign of abundance because it supplied almost all of their needs. The color white is the most spiritual color as it is a combination of all the other colors. The Lakota Indians saw the White Buffalo as uniting all the different races of man. The White Buffalo was always a very sacred symbol that was a good omen of good times to come.

Dream 459: These Little Annoying Things Are Getting Old and Stale
A woman had the following dream:
“I had a dream I was in a type of living room or waiting area. A man came in that I’ve never seen before. He laid down on the chair and he was eating something. I went to get my shoes and there were other shoes. When I bent down there was a lot of gnats or fruit flies (I think it was gnats because they were black). It looked like the gnats were above the shoes.I tried hitting them away. It ended there.Thank you.”
At the first level of dream interpretation, each character represents a part of hour mind. Men usually go more with an action part of the mind. Food usually signals psychological support or nurturance.
Furniture and shoes each support us in different ways. Shoes, in particular support your actions and trying to move forward. I think black shoes are more likely to represent financial support as black is often associated with business attire.
Gnats represent little annoying things whose pestilence is feeding on old and stale things. Gnats usually come around things that are decaying and decrepit, around things that are really getting old and stale fast. Gnats symbolize small annoying things that are feeding upon your active support, your shoes.
If it is a symbolic dream, a man eating who sits on the chair while eating with furniture and shoes involved indicates that a part of you or a part of your actions that were nurturing and supportive are feeling walked upon. It also probably indicates things are getting really old and decadent fast. In other words, you may be tired of a situation where you are the one expected to do supportive actions and the negative effect it is having upon you.
The black shoes could possibly imply more of a business or finance part of yourself. So the question would be “Have you been financially or otherwise supportive to someone, and it is getting kind of old if you know what I mean?” These Little things are really starting to “bug” you.

Dream 458: I have been betrayed by too many people
A woman had the following dream:
Last night, I had a dream that I was with a lover. We were laying in a bed in my house. I was holding his hands sort of like playing Mercy. I was holding his fingertips and squeezing them right at the nail beds right at the cuticles. And as I was squeezing his fingers, I was biting my own tongue and moving my head back and forth like a sprinkler. As I was biting my tongue, I was spraying blood back and forth like a sprinkler.
While this was happening, I was hissing. And there was a very sweet sweet smell in the air–everything smells very sweet. Then, when I stop squeezing his fingers and I stopped hissing and I stop bleeding everywhere. I looked up and I was outside on the road and the smell went away. But then I tried to grab his hands again and recreate the bleeding and squeezing and the hissing so that I could smell the smell again but I couldn’t get the smell back and I couldn’t bleed again.
The setting the dream opens with is usually what the dream is mainly about. In this case, it concerns your intimate relationships. Blood is related to your vital life energy, and usually implies very close or intimate relationships. Bleeding is how you’ve been hurt or how your life force has been diminished.
It starts out with a game of Mercy with a lover. This I believe is a play on words. It implies that you were expecting playfulness and mercy in an intimate relationship, but instead were betrayed and hurt deeply. Your bleeding from the mouth indicates that you’ve been very hurt by how people, people who were close to you, have reacted to what you have said to them about this intimate betrayal.
The dream is being dramatic in using blood being sprayed everywhere like a sprinkler because I think it is trying to say that you’ve been physically, psychologically and socially hurt. Like a water sprinkler covers a wide area, this particular betrayal is so deep that it is affecting all areas of your life.
The hissing is interesting. Snakes are most often associated with hissing. Snakes in dreams are usually associated with change. Hissing is a warning that the snake is going to strike. I believe this is a condensation in the sense that your subconscious wants you to be alert for how you could be hurt in the future. It also wants you to be careful that in your hurt feelings, that you don’t unintentionally hurt others who probably don’t realize the full extent of what you’ve been through.
Your not being able to recreate the same situation later in the dream, I think means that the dream wants you to avoid any situation that even comes close to the recent betrayals. The dream is emphasizing that what happened is over, and it is trying to help you minimize the damage to your life. A person cannot speak when they’re bleeding profusely from the mouth. By implication, the dream is saying that you haven’t been heard in the way that you meant it, and it is hurtful to you. The dream wants you, as much as you can, to avoid any situation that comes close to the Betrayal and events after it. The hissing is a warning to be on the alert for it. The dream moves to you being on the road to emphasize that your mind wants you to go on with your life in spite of the betrayal/betrayals.
The dream is not offering a solution other than to point out metaphorically the bloody carnage the betrayals have caused. By implication, it wants you to move on. The dream seems to be trying to warn you to avoid being played/playing games with people close to you that could hurt you dearly.

Dream 457: More ways than one to feed a starving cat
A woman had the following dream:
“I keep having a reoccuring dream of my dog. She is a small dog. I wake up and she is on my front step. There is a tub with hundreds of baby chickens. She is eating them and I hear their bones crunching. It’s scary for me because I’m vegeterian.
Each person or animal in a dream is part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of interpretation. Animals usually represent the dreamer’s instincts. In this case, it seems the cat represents some part of her instinct too survive.
Household pets usually represents the person’s affections or preferences because of the good feelings we have about pets. Cats usually are associated more with feminine energy because they are independent, sensuous and intelligent. I think this cat is announcing what you need to eat to survive.
Her subconscious is dramatically screaming that she needs protein. She does not have to totally give up being a vegetarian, but she should consider doing “social chicken.” After all, 89% of vegetarians go back to eating meat. Especially as you get older, you typically need the protein.
Dreams usually indicate that you can’t always get what you want, but if you try real hard, you get what you need at http://www.drstevenfox.com
Dream 456: Going down is going up in this pyramid
A woman had the following dream:
“I was standing in a dark empty space and realized my feet felt numb. I tried to feel for the energy around my right foot when suddenly I felt a strong burst of energy shoot downward from the heel of my foot. I looked down and saw a square shaped opening had appeared beneath me and I was slipping down into it. The walls were lined with red brick and I could see it extended far into the darkness.
I knew somehow that this space was the inside of a pyramid. It was made of red brick, shaped upside-down, and empty inside. I had entered through the square shaped base and was sliding down its wall, the space grew more narrow as I neared the endpoint.
I woke up before I reached the bottom, but not too long after seeing the red pyramid beneath my right foot I had a second occurrence.
This time it was energy projected from the front of my left foot. I was floating in outer space looking down into a galaxy. I could see flickering stars far off in the distance and below me was the swirled gases and random debris turning on its axis. I looked around me into the darkness and thought: “this is where all life came from.” I knew I was in the place where all energy is exchanged, transformed, and recycled. I had the thought that all living things knew this place in the back of their minds and are always linked to it throughout our whole lives.”
In some ways it sounds more like an experience than a dream. If I were to interpret it like a dream, I would say that there’s probably a good balance between your consciousness and your subconscious as energy shoots from both your left foot and your right foot. The right usually goes with the conscious energy while the left usually goes with subconscious energy.
I would say that the reason the pyramid sticks in your mind and is very vivid is because this image is very archetypal. I believe it is an upside-down Egyptian pyramid. It is archetypal because the pyramids are images fixed in our subconscious because of their importance to mankind in history and their meaning symbolically involving power and death.
We talk about there being a pyramid of needs with the most basic needs being at the base of the pyramid and the higher needs such as self-actualization being at the top of the pyramid; however, this is an upside down pyramid. The reason for that is movement downward means that you are going down further into your subconscious usually. The dream turns positively cosmic when the energy shoots from your left (subconscious) side.
What the dream is saying is that you reach toward your goal of self-actualization more by delving into your subconscious. The reason it is red is because red goes with strong emotion. So I think the dream is reflecting that you are experiencing personal growth and self-actualization by delving deeper into your emotions and self-actualization subconscious needs.
Your dream sounded like a numinous (I like to say luminous) vision dream which has a sacred larger than life feel to it. In Carl Jung’s world, having a numinous dream experience was always a big deal and significant.

Dream 455: It’s scaring me, but I’ll protect my family
A man had the following dream:
I’m at the sea dangling my feet on the water. I stare at the water for some time. It’s like my mind goes somewhere else. Then after some time I find that the water is beginning to drown me. Bear in mind I’m off shore on the rocks.
I run as fast as I can to the land. When I’m in the Land, there’s a guy in the water. I think he’s standing in a tower of a city underwater, but it looks like the city is drowning. Every time a wave comes over him, he’s just standing in the water like a scarecrow in a garden.
I think he’s calling me; however, I was so scared because I did not want to lieve my family behind. So I ran to my family to check if they were okay because I felt they needed me. I’m not sure what to make of this dream.
Each character in the dream represents a part of your mind at the first level of dream interpretation. Water invariably goes with emotion. The ocean or a large body of water tends to go with the subconscious. The land tends to go with consciousness.
What the dream seems to be saying is that you’re being overwhelmed by emotion so much that it’s almost hard to stay civilized (the city, civilization, is drowning). It is actually good that you resist joining the man who is like a scarecrow in the water. The dream suggests that you run consciously to be with your family because they need you.
The dream may be saying or may be advising or may just be describing the situation where you resist being overwhelmed by emotion and take care of your family.
The fact that the man in the water seems like a scarecrow implies that things you feel threatened by may just be a possibility and may not be all that real as long as you take precautions to ward off bad influences, like people who would prey on your crops, people who would consume what you produce in life.

A woman had the following dream:
Dream 454: I’ll Be Better in a While, Crocodile
All I really remember of it is that there was an alligator or crocodile, I don’t know which one. It was on the ground and it crawled up to my mom. She was able to tame it and ended up literally cuddling with this crocodile or alligator! She wasn’t afraid and she literally was totally cool with having this animal right up by her. My mom is very compassionate and empathic. Google has not helped me at all to sift through what this means. Any thoughts?
When you dream of your mother you are in this case dreaming of the emotionally positive qualities you have internalized from your mother. Crocodiles usually represent aggressive energy. That is not necessarily negative.
Your get-up-and-go is fueled by aggressive energy so you need a certain amount of aggressive energy to accomplish your goals. Water invariably represents emotions and this dream is about emotional integration within yourself. The dream is urging you to accept all parts of yourself even the aggressive parts because they can be used positively.
The dream says that you either are or it is recommending further use of your positive feminine mothering energy to accept your aggressive impulses so that they can be put to positive use such as being your get up and go to accomplish the goals that you want to. This dream is all about modulating aggressive Shadow energy so that it can be used positively. The dream is emphasizing that you have it within you to accomplish this.

Dream 453: Renewed Genesis of Life
A woman had the following dream:
“Last night I had a dream about my mother and I haven’t dreamed of her in quite a while in the dream she and I went to an auto body repair shop to get the front end of my truck repaired and painted (minor accident)so the guy was explaining the process and said it would only cost about $500 for the repair I said fine let’s do it. I went to the restroom and came back the guy said let’s finalize the paperwork so we can get started my mother looked at me and said it’s taken care of I said are you sure she said yes I said thank you and say down.
A few minutes later the guy comes and say you are all set and had a me the keys but I don’t see the key to my truck and mom is standing there looking around and I say to him my key is missing and he shows me another key and says this is your car. I look at my mom and she says I took care it of it. She really took care of it she traded my truck and bought me a new Genesis fully paid for. I hugged her and cried and that hug felt so real I couldn’t let go. We got in the car and left.
Not sure what this means but any help is greatly welcomed…”
A vehicle usually represents your progress in life in a dream. In any case, your mother usually represents the basis of your emotions. The dream may be saying that your emotions have been repaired.
You may be making some kind of shift from work or the financial part of your life (the truck) to focusing on the beginning of a new area (a Genesis) for your life.
The dream may also be integrating mother emotions.
The fact that the hug felt so real implies a vision dream where you were visited. All in a place, it sounds like a reparative and emotionally integrating dream that wants to give you a new vehicle to enjoy a different area of your life.

Dream 452: Bringing My Higher Self to Others
A woman had the following dream:
“I’m standing on a high bridge whose poles are made of small pieces of clouds. I don’t know how they can keep this whole weight. I don’t see that its something real.I can see on the bridge, now it s forming a kind of egg-shaped plate, greenish color as it has a mild vibration. Beside me it opens a small hole through which it is possible to see a lot of green trees and vegetation which is so thick that i can t see the ground .
This bridge connects two big trees through which flows some kind of electricity, or something like that, and the bridge is feeding them. The trees bend their branches as if they have conscience. Then one of the branches wants me to sit on it.
I’m climbing and at the moment I feel, I rise very quickly in the air. It discharges me from itself, so high above. I’m falling through the hole on the bridge. I’m wearing on my back a bright green disk color that is slowing me downhill between trees. It’s like I’m not from matter anymore. I’m completely empty, and I now know that I’m made of air and light.”
A disk or circle in my world usually symbolizes the Soul because it has no beginning and no end. Green is growth because it is the color of plants. Trees are major symbols of integration in my world. Bridges are passages in life, going from one stage or area of life to another.
Holy naturalness! Everything in this dream is natural. It sounds like you are probably a very integrated and natural person who might be in the process of bridging two major areas, practices or teachings, or people in your life.
There are two concerns I might consider about this dream. One is the clouds that seemingly cannot support the bridge. The other is the tree ejecting you on high.
When I try to make sense of this dream, I think that it is indicating that the two areas of your life are already naturally bridged. I see it as less concerned about bridging those areas, beliefs or practices in your life because they have already been bridged.
The dream might see you as having very noble goals, but may want you to come down from the clouds and ground your goals in reality. The green disk assures us that you have the Soul and growth to bring these two major areas of integration to earth, to “ground” them, and bring your knowledge to others.

Dealing with your Shadow is a major part of life.
The Shadow is a major dream archetype. It is usually a dark figure in profile or can be a criminal or aggressive stalking figure that either tries to break in to your residence or is pursuing you in some way. We all have a shadow. These contain aggressive impulses and parts of ourselves that we have rejected for now.
The shadow also contains our “get up and go.” it is vital to the personality. Other parts of the personality need to be in contact with the shadow to place appropriate limits on it. By working with the shadow, the other parts of the personality benefit by getting the energy that is in the shadow that can be put to good use.
The following is a dream I had at a critical time that assured me that I would make it through a conflict:

Dream 451: I need to cool my emotions to do what I need to do
A woman who is an expert in astral projection had the following dream:
“I found myself flying in the air with a red balloon attached to my waist. I was flying over a busy city street wondering why I had the balloon attached since I had always flown in my dreams without it. I sat on top of a very high building for awhile watching below. Later the balloon got caught in a tree and it seemed a hindrance although I was able to break free easily. Three men convinced me to come down (I didn’t want to) and they took me to a large blue pool of water. They placed me in the pool and said I had some emotions to deal with. There were many people in the pool. I was reluctant to speak with them as well as be with people on the earth but after a day they made me feel comfy even hugging me and almost protective like. After about 3 days I knew I did not belong on the ground any longer yet my balloon was no longer with me. I did not know if I could fly without it but I knew the sky was where I belonged. Their vibrations were too low and I had to get away from the overwhelming negative emotional energies coming off them. I lifted off without it and knew I was free without the balloon which I had seen as a handicap. My journey had begun again as I thought of which direction to head, then I woke.”
Red usually represents strong emotions (love, hatred, anger, etc.). The pool of water (water is virtually always emotions in dreams) sounded like a place to cool your emotions down. Blue might mean she was feeling blue. Then she was free to fly without emotions that may have been interfering with her integration (since there were trees in the dream–trees usually represent integration because its roots reach down into the Earth, it opens up to the sky and it is here on the level).
The balloon, in this case, was a hindrance which I think was the dream’s way of assuring her that she can rely on her own internal guidance and did not need an exterior force to rise above the chaos below.
There were three (the number of change) men (who are associated with action parts of herself) because the dream specifically wanted her to change some part of the way she did things. She needed to return to Earth to get “grounded” in mundane reality, but there was no keeping her from astral projecting for long. This transformative dream was probably about working through an emotional block.

Dream 450: Testing your metal
A woman dreams that she went through surgery that she did not want to have. The surgeons left metal in her body. She thought the dream was weird and wondered what it could mean.
When doctors and hospitals are involved, the dream almost invariably is about healing. Surgery is dramatic healing which has a downside and benefits. Hopefully, the benefits outweigh the downside.
Metal left in the body can indicate new strength or it also can represent hard feelings/rigidity. She was a young woman in her twenties who had recently gone through a dramatic therapeutic intervention in the sense of detoxing. She alsowent through therapy and was given medication.
The dream, I believe, was a reflection of her not liking the intense treatment she went through. The experience had “tested her metal.” The metal left behind was her hard feelings over the ordeal, but the experience had made her stronger (strong as steel).

Dream 449: The real thing
A woman had a dream that a good friend John that she thought she should like to date, but did not, offered her a Coke after telling her to wake up. She accepted the beverage and felt happy in the dream.
She was distressed because she typically always wanted to date Macho “Bad Boys” who usually ended up not treating her very well. She was mystified that she had this sensitive male friend who she talked to and they had a good relationship, but she never saw him as being interesting as a date. She would typically look through her dreams trying to get information about what kind of man she should date.
The dream was giving her a direct answer. Her subconscious obviously favored her dating someone like John. In the dream, this male friend literally tells her to “wake up.” Further, I do not believe him offering her a Coke soda was without meaning. Liquids such as water and Coke, for that matter, tend to be associated with emotion. Water is virtually always emotion. Coke specifically is an energizing drink that helps you to wake up because it has caffeine in it typically.
The dream was literally telling her to wake up. Why? Because her subconscious was actually telling her that she should consider dating this friend because, as the Coke commercials say, he is “the real thing.”

Many of the dreams, like Joseph’s warning to the Pharaoh of Egypt that there would be seven years of plenty followed by seven years of famine, were predictive. Another example comes from the book of Joel in the Old Testament and is shown in the following image:

Dream 448: Getting Rid of a Friend that Bites
A woman told me the following before describing her dream:
I had a disagreement with someone that’s been in and out of my life. This person contacted me to tell me that I have the the power to fix it. I was asking for a sign if this relationship could be fixed or if this is a toxic relationship that I shouldn’t have in my life. [Before she went to sleep, she incubated a dream by asking for a dream that would indicate what she should do with this relationship and she had the dream described in the next paragraph]:
“In the dream, my golden retriever bit a cousin’s daughter, which is totally out of the dog’s character. The daughter’s mother (also my longtime friend and patient I provide care for) told me I need to put the dog down. I woke up feeling conflicted. Oddly enough I went to sleep asking spirit for a sign and that’s the sign the I received!”
I think the dream is voting that it is a toxic relationship that you should stay away from. Dogs are all about loyalty and the dream does a double entendre dream condensation on the theme of loyalty. Remember that each character in the dream is a part of your mind with women going more with emotions. Animals often represent our instinctive feelings. Dream condensation occurs when the dream is true on more than one level.
I think the woman represents your emotional common sense which says that, painful as it may be, you have to kill your instinctual loyalty (the dog) before you get bitten. The reason you put a dog down is because the dog has proven itself to be dangerous by biting someone. To me, this means you have to kill your internal loyalty to this person so that you do not get bitten again.

Dream 447: Stopping Monkeying Around
A woman had the following dream:
“I had a dream last night. In the dream there was a plum tree with 5 orangutans. They had their backs to me. Then my father picked me up and ran with me because there was a lot of sand coming at us from behind. Then we tumbled and I was carrying my father. Then we ran to a truck and rode the sand waves.
What’s this mean ?”
This is a very interesting dream. A tree is a symbol of integration because its roots grow in the ground, it opens to the sky, and it is here on the level with us. The plum tree has several meanings in my world. First off, a plum is a fruit and a food that nurtures you. Also a plum is usually something especially appealing like a plum job.
I would guess that the orangutans are barriers to getting something favorable that nurtures you. Animals usually represent instincts, the dreamer’s instincts. In this case, I think the dream is signaling that too much monkeying around is keeping you from getting something you want that would be favorable to you like a plum position of some kind. I think the orangutan instinct is interfering because I think it represents “monkeying around.”
Sand usually represents impermanence as it can be blown around and it never provides a solid foundation. You do not want to just build sand castles as goals in your life to my way of thinking. From that standpoint, it can be seen as insecurity.
Your father in the dream represents an action part of your mind as men tend to go with actions. Fathers most often are the basis of your actions to some degree. Your carrying your father might mean that you need to be supportive of your actions you are taking to avoid being insecure and wanting to build your future into a more secure and semi-permanent situation. You may want to build something in your life that is not subject to the shifting sands of time.
It also has significance that there are five orangutans. In my world, five usually represents adding something on to your stable self (4 is a stable number and five is literally adding something to your stable self as 1+4=5.
I think the dream is wanting you to take life more seriously, stop monkeying around, and support your actions towards building something more permanent in your life.
In my world, trucks are associated with work and you escape the sand on a truck. I think the dream is saying that you have to work to build a future worth having.

Dream 446: Wondering about carrying my baggage into the future
A woman had the following dream:
“I had a dream that I was at an airport waiting to be called for my flight.Then I was called,and I got up and picked up my black bag.I think I was traveling with my youngest son…”
There is something almost spiritual about flight and usually has to do with your overall life goals. Picking up a bag could mean that you were worried about carrying “baggage” into your future. That your youngest son is in the dream usually means that you’re probably considering making some fairly major change. Each person in a dream is usually a part of your mind at the first level. Boys tend to go with actions while girls usually go more with emotions. That isn’the absolute, but is usually the case.
You are probably worried about how “baggage” from the past might affect that move. Unless you actually have a black bag, the color in this case could signal being worried about negative or depressing baggage being carried into your future. The type of action you may be considering would be related to the personality of your youngest son.
It is also possible that it is the condensation of two levels of the dream in the sense that the decision could involve your youngest son in some sense or how it would affect him. Again, the main thing is taking some action for your overall life goes intowards the future and being worried about carrying baggage into the future and how that baggage might affect your future.
The dreamer later indicated that she had been looking for a job and was wondering how that would affect her and her youngest son’s future.

Dream 445: Looking for my ambition
A man dreamed he was joyful as he was crossing a lake on a boat. The lake was full of crocodiles. Nevertheless, he was thrilled to be on the boat.
Water virtually always represents emotions in dreams. Crocodiles usually signal aggressive emotions or instincts. The aggression is the shadow side of this emotion. The positive side is that it also represents your “get up and go,” your desire to accomplish things.
You can use that aggressive energy for positive purposes. The other parts of the personality just need to put some limits on the shadow aspect of that aggressive Energy.
I view this dream positively. I feel that he is setting out on a voyage to find the “get up and go” to accomplish positive things for himself and the world.

Dream 444: His never changing infuriates me
A woman had the following dream:
“I had a dream I was sitting on my bed talking with my ex and I herd a rustling under my bed. Out came a snake with tiger stripes. It bit him in the neck. What could this mean?”
Snakes usually represent change because they shed their skin. The type of snake usually indicates what kind of change it would be. That the snake emerges from under your bed indicates that the dream is probably addressing change in a personal and intimate relationship.
This is an aggressive tiger snake. This could mean that it involves him being aggressive in the relationship and/or it could involve you’re having anger towards him. I believe the dream condenses here and probably both of those statements are true to some degree. I think the dream could be signaling your anger over your ex never changing as well as indicating that he was aggressive in the relationship in his way of interacting with you.
It is likely that it is a dream of desire. You probably, within the relationship, wished that he would change seriously, which he never did. The snake was aggressive because maybe your boyfriend was too aggressive, in his way, and you understandably have anger over that. For what it’s worth, where the snake strikes him suggests he was a pain in the neck.
The dreamer later told me that the interpretation was accurate.

Dream 443: A diamond is forever
A woman dreamed that she was walking along and she noticed the diamond was missing from her finger. She thought she had lost it. A young boy then came up to her with the ring and gave the ring back to her.
Each character in the dream represents a different part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of dream interpretation. Men tend to go with actions or a more action-oriented part of the mind. Women tend to go more with an emotional part of the psyche.
The maturity level of the character in the dream usually represents how developed either the action or the emotion is. That it was a young boy who returns the ring to her means that she is probably taking new action to confirm a commitment, an allegiance, a loyalty, a close relationship, or even a job.
It is unknown whether this dream describes the current state of affairs or whether the dream is predictive. Only the dreamer will be able to discern the full meaning of this dream.

Dream 442: Your Inner Lions
I had a dream about a group of lions: A female and male leader, two males, two females and a lion cub. They were watching me from a cliff or a ledge. Then, they crawled down and started to run. As they ran , images of everything that has been bothering me appeared in the sky(weight, suicidal thoughts, hurt, etc). Finally they lead me to a cave, and the images in the sky disappeared. I followed them to a beautiful grotto inside the cave.
Then the lioness stood there on top of a hill near the opening of the grotto. Like she was waiting for me to follow her. I followed and we sat near a waterfall that was flowing into a lake. There were glowing fireflies and butterflies around us.
She spoke, and said to “release it”. I crawled over to the lake and threw up continuously into the lake.
She told me the animal kingdom is calling to me and that I must pay attention and listen to what the animals are telling me in my dreams.
She is one of the first but there will be many others that will help me in this difficult time.
After wards, I woke up at 3 am in the morning to throw up. And for the rest of the day I felt sick.
Does this have a deep meaning?
Yes, this is a deep dream or “big dream.” Animals usually represent the dreamer’s instincts. Having a lot of animals is a good sign that you have a lot of subconscious emotional energy you can use.
You have a plethora of lions within you. Lions usually go with strength and courage. Your subconscious is saying that you have balanced energy potentials as there are an even number of adult males and females. Males tend to go with action potentials while females tend to go with emotional energy.
The dream makes a strong case that your worries are not real and are just floating in the sky. Going into a cave typically represents going into your subconscious. Water is virtually always emotion. The dream is saying, I believe, that you have a spring well of flowing positive emotions you can use to refresh yourself.
The cub lion is present because the dream wants you to grow in inner strength and courage even more. Vomiting is getting rid of things making you sick. I believe your subconscious wants you to rid yourself of toxic emotions that are making you sick.
Your inner lioness is urging you to use your instincts and to go with your gut feelings as much as you can given other factors.

Dream 441: It’s your baby
A woman had the following dream:
“I had a dream I delivered my own baby and unwrapped the cord from his neck too . Was directing my family to call 911 and get scissors to cut cord to.”
Having a baby means giving birth to a new aspect of yourself. The dream is saying probably that you need to give some air to a new idea, project or new characteristic of yourself.
I think it may be saying that no one can do this for you. It is literally your baby.911 emphasizes usually that you should make the changes now. The scissors cutting the cord and you calling your family may mean something about cutting the cord with your family.

Dream 440: Consolation after Catastrophic Personal Loss
A woman had the following dream:
“My mom passed Sept 14th. Since then I have had some dreams I don’t understand…as an aside I’ve lost my sister, my brother and my mom in the last 10 months…I had a dream that my left eye went blind, a spot showed up…I had a dream something was coming for me and I tried to scream for help. On the third try I screamed out loud. My husband asked me about it the next day…I had a dream my mom, sister, and I were listening to Waylon Jennings on the tv…of course, they are both gone now…
Update: The next night I dreamt that I went to see my mom and she talked little but laughed a lot and goofed around we were laughing so hard and then we sat down on her bed and laid back. It was a water bed. We sat up and she looked at me and said it’s OK Carol, I’m not lonely anymore.”
Being Conservative Is Hard on My Head
A 36-year-old fine arts professor dreamt that he was on the patio of a Mexican restaurant. There was a wasp’s nest above the kidney shaped bar. Suddenly, a wasp flew down and stung him in the head. The dream shifted to him listening to a waittress. She was telling him about a long sordid affair she had with a professor.
This professor recently received job offers from colleges in Ohio and California. WASP also stands for White Anglo Saxon Protestant. I asked him which college was more conservative. He replied that the college in Ohio was much more conservative and he did not know if it would tolerate his avant-garde teaching style and research. I asked him what he associated with Mexican restaurants, and he replied California. I asked him what was the biggest mistake he ever made in his field, and he replied that he regretted a decision not to attend a college in California. That she, the waittress had a sordid affair with a professor indicated that his emotions (the waitress) had been untrue to his intellectual decisions (the male professor)—this was highlighted by the fact that he regretted not going to college in California/
The dream voted in the direction of the college in California. His subconscious exclaimed that a conservative atmosphere was hard on his head and thinking. A restaurant in a dream nurtures one psychologically, and the dream is saying that, for him, California is much more likely to be nurturing.
The female waittress is a part of his work emotions. In dreams, a waittress is often seen as “one who waits.” He told me consciously that his biggest career mistake was not attending a learning institution in California. The waittress is talking about an emotional mistake with a professor. The dream is warning him about making sincere and solid emotional connections. The dream is screaming that he needs to attend a learning institution in California.

Dream 438: Stopping the Change
I dreamed I was walking, heading to a village, where I have a piece of land I own/where i was born. While I was heading there, an ordinary person told me I can not pass by because a gaint snake is blocking the path/road. He was giving a warning. I wasn’t afraid so I continued. Then on the way, the giant green snake(anaconda) climbed down, unwrapping himself from a tree, rushing towards me. I grabbed a piece of wood. I hit it in the face. The snake fell back and then tries again, so I hit it again in the face and then he was knocked out for good. That’s where the dream ends… what could his mean?.
A snake usually represents change senses one of the few animals to completely shed its skin. This Anaconda is a big aggressive snake. My guess is the change has something to do with the land.
That is, someone or something may be going to try to aggressively change the village and/or land plot that you own but you are going to stop it. I do not know you so this is speculation.

Dream 437: The Evil Queen
I have had very vivid and odd dreams every night for the past month. Yet when I awake I usually only remember pieces. I was standing in front of my ex husband. We were talking as I began to think in my head about our split. Reminding myself of the monster he became…the reason I left. I used to have no voice when in his presence so I was reminding myself before I made eye contact.
I reached in my pocket though and pulled out a seemingly endless stack of large bills. He put his hands out and one by one I placed the bills in his Palm. It never ended. I remember thinking what about my needs. If I give it all I’ll have nothing. He never stopped me and I never spoke up.
I looked down and Instantly fell to my knees. I quickly place my hands out to catch This large Brown ribbed vase. I was unable to catch it in time. The glass broke shattering and slicing my right Index finger. I remember specifically the feel of glass shards across my fingers.
I looked up to see a woman I have not yet the chance to meet. She had black curly hair old style framed glasses. She had a dark-tinted color to her, like not a normal color. She just stared blankly at me. It was creepy, almost like I felt I was in trouble.
I heard “Watch her–When she appears pay close attention to her.” Then I woke up. I’ve yet to understand this one. A lot of my dreams are about money or past lives, even god. I’m not sure why the oddities, but would greatly appreciate any Insight.
Money usually represents energy in dreams. He was a viper who took all your energy and never reciprocated.
The woman in your dreams is negative emotions. Jung called her the queen or the negative mother complex. She resides in everyone’s subconscious.
The queen is all about power and control. Her attitude toward you is capricious and arbitrary.
Her motto is “ask not what I can do for you–ask what you can do for me now.” She looks very strong, but will wilt unless the odds are overwhelmingly in her favor.
The savage masculine will aggravate and make her stronger. It sounds like you were married to a savage masculine man. The only part of the psyche that has any success against her is the heroic masculine–which usually involves being dedicated to taking positive actions that focus mainly, if not exclusively, on your needs and not making any excuses about it nor apologizing for looking after your needs.
I think the brown vase falling and cutting your finger right before the queen appears was done to emphasize that the queen is the emotional part of yourself that is hurting you. When glass is breaking in a dream, that usually means that the emotional impact of something is finally fully reaching you. Her favorite putdown is “who do you think you are.”
I hope this is helpful.

A woman dreamed something was chasing her in a dream that wanted to kill her.
This is a common dream. Often the thing that is chasing you is your own shadow. We reject the Shadow and want nothing to do with it and so we run away from it.
We think of this Shadow is being aggressive, but not necessarily. Anything you have rejected or even not used is probably in your shadow. If I decided not to become a priest, there’s a priest in my Shadow.
Many times the shadow is chasing a person in their dreams because we do not consciously want to recognize it. Often the shadow is trying to get your attention to show you that there is some part of the shadow that you may want to use that could be helpful in a given situation for your survival.
Each character in a dream is a part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of dream interpretation. Death in dreams usually means change. It means that a part of you needs to die psychologically, not literally.
What this means is that there’s a part of your personality that needs to change– that needs to be moved down your priority list of parts of your mind and personality to use. Part of your personality needs to die so that another part of your personality can be moved up the priority list and use some more or maybe even you might use a part of your personality that you’ve never used before.
So the upshot of all this is that your Shadow probably is chasing you to try to get you to use a part of it to help yourself, but you don’t want anything to do with it because you completely reject your Shadow and run.
Usually the solution, that I have found helpful in therapy, is to have people consciously say to themselves that they’re going to turn around and face the thing that’s chasing them the next time they have a dream like this. If you keep repeating this each night before you go to sleep, there’s a good probability that it will happen. The subconscious responds to repetition.

Dream 435: The Corrupt World
A man had the following dream:
“I was asleep, I seen my body being wrapped in threads like a web or a cocoon that surrounded me and strapped me to the bed. I watched it happening as if I was out of my body viewing it from above. Then I slipped back into my body and was struggling to break free of the webbing. I tore a small hole with my fingers and slowly but surely stretched it enough to make my way out. It stuck to me, it was very adhesive. It stretched along with my movements as I made my way and as I walked strands held onto me, and then finally the thick threading snapped and dissolved.
My bedroom was gone. I was in a large city in ruins, it was dark and smoldering, most of the structures had tumbled to the ground. I could tell that I was in a large building that had fallen but some of the walls and archways were still standing. Block and dirt and dust and pure destruction was seen as far as I could see. One doorway stood unscathed, and from this doorway came a group of men in suits, but they no longer had a human appearance. Instead of having heads, their necks branched out into rectangular shapes like the ends of beef jerky. Their flesh was the same, only I thought it was made from bacon or ham and other meats from swine. (they had been living high on the hog)
They were dumb and confused and stumbled around bumping into things. I found a few tables, gathered each of the creatures, strapped them down so they couldn’t move. As I was tying the knots I noticed bubbles pooling together on the doorways and walls. These sweltering pockets were swirling with multiple colors mixed with red, purple and yellow. They looked that of amniotic sacs, veins grew upon the sacs and pulsated. I watched them burst, giant larvae-like creatures incased in fluids gushed out onto the floor. They were the size of my arms at first; I watched as they twisted around and grew into children the size of nine-year-olds with a full head of hair and beautiful multi-colored eyes. They were wet, their skin was a dark gray and blue tone.They were holding their stomaches, their ribs showed like they had suffered from starvation.
Their attention was drawn to the center of the room where I had strapped the meaty beings to the tables. Some could walk but some crawled, but they all slowly made their way to the center of the room and ripped into the creatures. The creatures didn’t have eyes or mouths but I could see their suffering in the way they moved about each time a child bit into them. Suddenly everything rattled and it sounded like a wrecking ball was hitting walls. As I lifted my gaze I could see the remains of structures being knocked to pieces and the floor shook as a giant made his way through the rubble. He was at least fifteen foot tall, dressed in a red bishop’s robe, his facial appearance was stretched about in a demonic nature with black eyes and pockets of dark swelling veins showing on the outside of his skin. His hat stood several feet high and was made of gold, diamonds and other gems that people had obsessed over.
As the giant made his way over to us, his attention was on the children the entire time. I tried to pull them away from their feast but they were so desperate to consume the men they paid no attention; the ones I tried to grab and force to leave just pulled away from me and latched back onto the meat of men. As the bishop entered he grabbed the children one or two at a time, revealing his razor-like teeth and chomped their heads from their bodies, then tossed them to the floor. I tried to stop him but he swatted me, I tumbled backwards across the room and slammed against a wall and then to the ground. As he made his way toward me I heard a vicious growling above me. As I looked up drool splashed across my body and I seen a two-headed dog on a caved in portion of the roof, snarling at the bishop. It launched at the demonic giant, it was the size of a bear but the giant kept slapping it to the ground.
More dogs arrived, all of them with two-heads, all of them enormously large. The beasts pulled the bishop to the ground, ripping at his arms, pulling at his cloth and one had latched upon his throat, but then they began falling to his sides. He had grabbed a piece of twisted metal from the building’s fallen structure and was stabbed at the dogs. He bit them just as hard and ferociously as they were biting him, gashing one another’s flesh, blood dripping from open wounds and splashing about. In the darkest corner of the room I noticed a spear leaning against the wall. It had what appeared to be hieroglyphic markings on it. I couldn’t make out the shapes or the meaning of the markings but it was of an ancient origin. I grabbed the spear and cautiously approached the battle but by this time there was only one dog alive. The bishop knelt over the beast and held it to the floor by the neck as it growled, barked and kicked its legs around trying to squirm free to attack again. The bishop glanced at me with one hand raised high above him with the twisted metal tight within his grip. As he took a breath and gritted his teeth together, but before he could swing down to destroy the beast I ran the spear through his side and upward into his body. His body instantly became limp and he fell forward, releasing the dog. The beast and I shared a slight moment as it looked at me and with trembling hands I stared back at it. He was startled as if he heard something and ran towards an opening in the room to leave; the room filled with light until I was blinded and then into complete darkness. I could hear the dog’s heads barking as I as woke up. Even for a few seconds after I opened my eyes I could still hear it.
I was thirsty. I turned on my bathroom light and then went to the kitchen. I opened the refrigerator door, pulled out a soda, as I closed the door and turned to walk back to my room something dark and tall was next to me, it blocked the light coming from my bedroom and it held no definite shape. I stepped around the black mass and made my way back to my room. I looked back to see if I had really seen something or if my eyes had played tricks on me as they may have been adjusting in the dark after being exposed to the light in the fridge. The mass was gone just as quickly as it had appeared. I often remember my dreams in great detail and sometimes feel like something is showing me things that’s hard to fully make out. The dreams I have are often this dark, this beautiful and, this twisted. I am an aspiring writer and I do write fiction, so I don’t mind it at all. In fact, most of my screenplay ideas have come from strange clips or scenes I’ve had that were in great details. I’ve even had dreams that seemed as if they continued from a previous dream, as if it’s showing the next scene or vision to me.
Was there really a black mass? Maybe there was. Did I conjure up these images and this story from real world experiences or did something show me the dream? In my opinion, it might be a happy blend between the two working together for reasons unknown. Maybe my life experiences and imagination lets them in to play, and maybe they aren’t playing at all. When I analyze my own thoughts and personal fears, I will say this: I fear a famine is coming and the world will be thrown into a period of destruction and turmoil that most people can’t even fathom. I fear the government and the 1% think they know what they are doing and they believe they will be safe from these disasters but no one is safe. I think that the Vatican and Catholicism is in fact an evil empire that has had its grip on society and the way things are ran in this world for centuries and they will one day see that they are not the one that will decide the fate of man. I think that life will find a way to continue, but like the sad and hungry children in my dream, they will be full of desperation and their willingness to survive will stop at nothing. I have no clue what the two-headed beasts may have been but it saved my life, and many of then children survived thanks to them. Hideous or not, they done their duty and were our guardians. Take it with a grain of salt, but I feel that the symbolic images and story here, is indeed a fate mankind may one day have to live through. I feel like this dream could be translated in so many ways and am interested in what people have to say about it.”
I believe this is not only a big dream; it is a gigantic dream. It is talking about your personal transformation, the challenges faced in the world, and your possible role in it.
The first part obviously describes you being in a cocoon and escaping from the cocoon. The implication is that you’ve gone through a metamorphosis. Your worldview has been totally deconstructed, which is evidenced by the destroyed buildings an wreckage surrounding the situation.
The next part of the dream is all about the wealthy financiers. They are made from the meat of swine which says a lot about your feelings towards them. They carry maggots which become children. The implication is that the children are relegated by them to feeding on their waste products.
The children are ravenous beings because they have been starved for so long and literally want to eat the swine wealthy. A representative of the church, which I believe is a Roman Catholic Bishop or Cardinal because of the way you described the vestments and attire. You seem to see the church as involved in fending off the children to support the wealthy.
The dream was very archetypal in that you get a spear with hieroglyphics on it. It is like an ancient sacred weapon. You saved the last two headed dog/bear. Animals are usually the dreamer’s instincts.
It is your instinct to be fiercely loyal and protective–strong like a bear and loyal and protective like a dog. The dog being two-headed indicates that you put double the value on being loyal and protective.
In this dream you use your heroic masculine to save the protective instinctive Guardians that save the innocent/helpless from the evil and vile bureaucracy which oppresses the weak and rewards the wealthy.
I think this dream speaks rather well of your intentions. The question is “how accurate is this depiction of reality?”

Dream 434: Dump Trump
A woman had the following dream:
“Oh wow…I was in what seemed to be a frat house. Some young guy was complaining about all the hoes at the party. I went upstairs to go to the bathroom and saw a man coming towards the house with a black object/machine/vacuum in his hands, although the dream itself blocked out what it really was. Then BOOM, the entire house was decimated, no one left, even a small baby had been killed. Only people on the porch survived and this is where I was. Then a woman came by and my brother and we had to sign papers. Then I saw the ghost of that baby because I was sad it had died too.
Then I saw another man in a vision in front of people in a city like new york square setting. He was dressed in black with red acting crazy with some kind of message for me. Then another guy dressed in black in another place i cannot remember yet was very clear in this dreamline…
Dream 435: Dump Trump
Every person in the dream is a part of your mind. Men go with your actions. A frat house is a Brotherhood of educated men who Goof Off a lot in my world. In the dream, they are anti-women, which means they are anti-emotional as women tend to go more with your emotions while men tend to go more with your actions.
These men are all off including a baby. I think the dream may be saying you need to get rid of any actions that are even unintentionally derogating to women. The baby is included because it is saying you have to get rid of even any tiny notion that might not be in favor of emotions or women.
The speaker in New York is obviously Donald Trump. The dream isn’t being clear about the two men. I suspect strongly that one of them was Donald Trump. I suspect the other man was the opposite of Donald Trump, what your actions preferably could be.
This extremely biased opinion was not paid for and I agree with its content. It is speculation of what I think is likely and humorous comments may also be true, but there is no way of definitely knowing.
The dreamer later told me after the interpretation that she and her daughter had been having major debates about Trump’s misogynist view of women.

Dream 433: There is something I know I should do
A woman had the following dream:
“I had a dream I was in my wedding dress and looking for an iron for my veil. My young kids got out the flat with a strange wee boy. I went looking for them when I found them my little boy was lying lifeless in front of a car the other two kids where sitting up and the man from the car was sitting down he was on the phone crying and couldn’t look at me saying “sorry.” What does this mean?
“Weddings usually represent integration of different parts of your mind and personality. This one is focusing on your actions in particular integrating with your emotions as men tend to go with actions and women tend to go with emotions in dreams.
The clothing represents your defenses psychologically. A veil is something that you would have to look through that partially covers who you really are.
An iron is something you do to take the wrinkles out of your clothes, the wrinkles out of your defenses. There’s also the comment saying that we ” iron out our problems.” You are preparing to integrate, but delay doing so because you want to iron out your problems first, in particular, how you look at things through the veil of your consciousness.
At the first level, your little boy would represent a new action on your part that you delayed doing. Cars are usually vehicles that represent our progress in life.
The man in the dream is communicating with others how sorry you will feel if you delay taking a small action you need to do which involves changing your outlook and not putting off your integration of your emotions with your actions.
My bias is to think that the dream thinks that you should be taking some action which you know you should do which you are delaying because you want to wait till things look better through the way you are thinking about things now.”
The dreamer later indicated to me that you recently had a child and was deciding whether to get married.

Dream 432: Cut It Out!
A woman had the following dream:
“I don’t know if daydreams matter much, yet i have been having episodes of some awful things that i am seeing, just for a few moments that i see them, yet this most recent one has me freaked out: I see someone (both male) cutting off the mustache hair and then put into the mouth of the other guy who is bound? with what also seems like sawdust?….whatever could such a weird scene mean? At first I thought I am seeing an ’embalmment’ from ancient times, yet there was a new pair of scissors…..
Each character in the dream is a part of your mind usually. At the first level, men represent an action part of the mind. Mustaches are worn almost exclusively by man and are used to look better and more mature. It really has no function other than to improve looks, it is optional to wear and usually represents pure ego.
Sawdust comes from trees. Trees are symbols of integration because its roots reach down into the Earth, it opens up to the sky, and it is here on the level.
You mentioned that it almost seems like an embalming process. When there is death involved of which the sawdust represents the Dead part of the tree also, usually the dream is indicating that there’s a deep personal change that must occur .
I believe the dream is saying that there is a part of your actions being performed to look good that are destroying your integration and must die.
In no uncertain terms (the scissors lying around) it is saying to cut it out (the mustache is cut off)! The good news is that there are two men in the dream and the man cutting the mustache off represents the part of you that realizes you must stop some action you are doing mainly just to look good.

Big Dream: You Will Make It
A woman had the following dream:
“I had a dream that I was in a spaceship and everything was in bright colorful colors. I remember feeling safe,then all the sudden it drops me on a railroad bridge,above a river. I had to shimmy across that whole bridge to solid ground. I had this dream maybe 20 years ago,but I still think about it sometimes. I was never afraid. ?”
The dream seems reassuring and predictive to me. The spaceship with bright colors to me is a higher world or even spiritual perspective filled with positive emotion. Colors are different kinds of emotions. When colors are vivid in dreams, that indicates that they are strong feelings.
Water is emotion and rivers usually represent the River of Life. Bridges most often represent making the transitions in life emotionally necessary to make progress consciously. A bridge and particularly a railroad bridge represents a life Passage. Dreams love to use trains because of the many metaphors to life such as being on the right track and leaving the station on time.
I believe the dream is reassuring in that it says that you will have challenging passages in life, but by remaining calm and making steady progress, will get to where you need to go. I feel this dream predictive and reassuring. Any dream that you have repetitively over a course of years is a “big dream” that has significance about the course of your life. Congratulations!
