A 50-year-old woman dreamt that she was looking at a tree with a television set in it. The dream was showing her scenes of her vacationing in England where she was attending cultural events and admiring the English gardens. The television program switched to showing Bermuda and assured her that the heat would not bother vacationers. The dream shifted to her eating cookies her mother made for her when she was 7 years old.
Dream 193 Interpretation
A tree is a primary symbol of integration. A television is both audio and visual one way communication. She deeply enjoyed her vacations in England where she attended cultural events, and she particularly loved the English gardens.
The dream was communicating to her that it would be good for her integration as a person to go on a vacation that included cultural and garden events. She planned a vacation that included theater, artistic and botanic events. She often went to colder climates, but was not concerned about the heat in the South where she planned to vacation. The dream indicated that the heat would not bother her on her vacation to Virginia (which incidentally is at roughly the same latitude as Bermuda.)
Food in dreams usually represents what is nutritious for the dreamer. The dream ending with her eating her grandmother’s cookies reinforced the idea that a cultural vacation would be especially nurturing for her.
