Dream 372: And Then It Hit Me
A woman had the following dream:
“I dreamt I was drinking from a glass and suddenly there was broken glass all over my mouth and I was trying to spit it out but I couldn’t get rid of it… and my mouth was bleeding… any idea of what it could mean?”
Water is emotion in dreams. Your glass is usually a bit of personally contained emotion. When a glass breaks in a dream, that usually means that the emotional impact of something has finally hit you.
That your mouth had glass inside it has all kinds of possibilities including, “Did you hurt yourself by something you said?” It would suggest that there was a personal situation that you were handling well, but then you lost control of the situation and it went out of hand and hurt you.
It implies that rather than internalizing an emotional experience, that you may have spoken about it with self-damaging consequences. The vision of blood suggests that it probably involved someone close to you.
