Dream 202: Being Conservative Is Hard on My Head
A 36-year-old fine arts professor dreamed that he was on the patio of a Mexican restaurant. The 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 waitress. She was telling him about a long sordid affair she had with a professor.
Dream 202 Interpretation
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.
The dream voted for 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 more nurturing.
The female waitress is a part of his work emotions. In dreams, a waitress 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 waitress 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.
