Her Paint Wears Thin

Dream 230: The Paint Is Wearing Thin

Analyst Jeremy Taylor in his book, Where People Fly and Water Runs Uphill, described a woman who was terrorized by a recurrent dream in which the white paint of her house was bubbling up and peeling away. She felt strangely horrified by this dream and would awaken each time she had it.

Dream 230—Interpretation

Recurrent dreams are “big” dreams because they usually represent the dreamer trying to solve repetitive and similar problems at different points in the dreamer’s lifetime. The house can represent the dreamer because that was the framework out of which she lived. White in almost all cultures is the most spiritual color as it is representative of “the light.”

The paint bubbling away meant that she was at those times feeling hypocritical. Her spiritual veneer or what she showed to the outside world was wearing off and exposing her inner worn surface. That the paint was “bubbling” off indicated that she felt internal anger that threatened to surface. This possibility horrified her.
