Dream 195: Getting Over My Work Addiction

A 34-year-old woman dreamt that she had a baby prematurely at twenty weeks past conception. The baby looked like a little man. He looked like a mentor and manager at work that she deeply admired and tried to emulate. The baby was wrapped in a blanket with the ends of the blanket stretched and tied so that the baby was encased in a stretched blanket which hung like a hammock above the incubator.

The baby was not doing well. Finally, the baby had convulsions and fell to the floor. A doctor she liked told her, “Don’t worry, that happens here all the time.” She then heard an overriding voice that sounded like the mentor she admired that said, “I found God and sobriety.”

Dream 195 Interpretation

This women’s mentor took another job and left her workplace about twenty weeks ago. She had to do all the work she performed before and fill in for his position as well. She barely knew enough to do all the functions of her transformed position.

Her being the mother of a 20-week-old baby symbolized the birth of her new work position which was twenty weeks old. She felt that her mentor left his position prematurely before she learned all the necessary functions. The baby represented her new work psyche which she felt had been “stretched and hung out to dry” (similar to the baby in the incubator.)

The good doctor was warning her that she was likely to crash if she continued on her chosen course. The overriding voice from her mentor was advising her to avoid being addicted to work (since he said he found sobriety) and to be more spiritual (he said he found God.) She decided to heed the words of her subconscious. She decided to spend less time at work, look for a new job and pursue her spiritual interests.

    1. I have over 25 years experience interpreting dreams. The best dream interpreters are Jungian analysts. I used their analyses plus my experience as a therapist to develop forty rules which are the most important things to keep in mind when interpreting a dream. My method of dream interpretation is fully explained in everyday language with practical examples in my book, “Dreams: Guide to the Soul” which is at drstevenfox.com.

    2. I use the method derived from my book preferably before I completely know what has transpired in the person’s life. I trust interpretations more that are given before completely knowing what the situation is in the dreamer’s life.
