Dream 446: Wondering about carrying my baggage into the future

A woman had the following dream:

“I had a dream that I was at an airport waiting to be called for my flight.Then I was called,and I got up and picked up my black bag.I think I was traveling with my youngest son…”

Interpretation 

There is something almost spiritual about flight and usually has to do with your overall life goals. Picking up a bag could mean that you were worried about carrying “baggage” into your future. That your youngest son is in the dream usually means that you’re probably considering making some fairly major change. Each person in a dream is usually a part of your mind at the first level. Boys tend to go with actions while girls usually go more with emotions. That isn’the absolute, but is usually the case.

You are probably worried about how “baggage” from the past might affect that move. Unless you actually have a black bag, the color in this case could signal being worried about negative or depressing baggage being carried into your future. The type of action you may be considering would be related to the personality of your youngest son.

It is also possible that it is the condensation of two levels of the dream in the sense that the decision could involve your youngest son in some sense or how it would affect him. Again, the main thing is taking some action for your overall life goes intowards  the future and being worried about carrying baggage into the future and how that baggage might affect your future.

The dreamer later indicated that she had been looking for a job and was wondering how that would affect her and her youngest son’s future.

This Is Your Brain on Dreams

Dreams seem to have beneficial effects for the brain. Experiments have been performed where REM sleep (dream sleep) was not allowed, as they would wake up the sleepers whenever they reached the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) stage of sleep. When the dreamers were finally left alone, they made up for all the REM sleep missed previously.

What does being covered with earth and merry-go-rounds mean in a dream?

Dream 368: The World Goes Round in Circles

A young woman had the following dream:

“Like I found myself laying partially in the ground in some very beautiful moss carpeted forest. In the ground meaning I was buried just beneath the surface as if the ground dirt and moss was my bed/blanket. And it felt amazing like I woke up feeling at home partially inside the earth. That was one piece. In another segment I awoke (in my dream) to find myself on a merry go round in some park. The merry go round was already spinning quite fast but I wasn’t dizzy because my perspective was looking within the merry go round. But then I looked up and to the side as if to view the park and immediately my balance was thrown off and my perspective changed and I got really dizzy just as you would if you were on a fast spinning one. It was just very bizarre to me that in my dream I could change perspectives like this and actually feel and see the world around the merry go round spinning and it physically felt as though I was on it.”

My Interpretation

The dream starts out by saying in the most explicit way possible that you are very well grounded. Being on the merry-go-round is interesting. A merry-go-round is a circle. A circle is the best symbol we have of the soul. Things that are in an amusement park, like merry-go-rounds, are usually seen as you’re having fun or entertainment in life.

The dream gives very strong advice. You must keep your perspective on what is close to you and avoid looking outside for fun as it will only make you confused and dizzy.

What does the ocean, sea coral, and three children mean in a dream?

Dream 307 Grow in Awareness of Your Subconscious Emotions or Take a Good Look at Yourself

A woman saw three children running toward a building. Then she found herself in a room which had a fair going on in it with a circus atmosphere replete with concessions, vendors, games, monkeys, fountains of chocolate, costumes, etc. She then saw three kids with a vendor.

The vendor and the three children were in a kitchen. One of the children was licking a bowl after a cake was made. They were listening to the man. He had blue coral growing on half of his face.

The man turned to her to demand that she should be teaching the children about the ocean which is what he was doing. It was all important that she teach the children about the ocean.

Interpretation

Three is the number of change. Three is the number of change because 3 people in a relationship is the most unstable interpersonal situation possible. Things are going to change. Each character is a part of the dreamer’s mind. Children would be relatively new parts. So the dream was saying that she needed to change by integrating relatively new parts of her thinking.

There are a lot of entertainment figures in this dream. The dream may be saying she needed to have more fun and play in her life. The kitchen is a place of creativity and nurture.

The man wants to talk about the ocean which basically is the subconscious. I believe the dream in a larger sense is saying it would be helpful to her creativity (the kitchen). It would also sweetly nurture (the cake bowl) the dreamer to look at her subconscious emotions (teaching the new parts of herself–the children–about the ocean).

Coral is alive and is growth in the ocean. The dream is screaming that exploring her subconscious emotions would lead to growth in how she looked at herself (the coral is on his face). She had to face up to it.

What do snakes in a dream mean?

Some Snakes and Some Changes Are Beautiful
Some Snakes and Some Changes Are Beautiful

Dream answer 297

Snakes usually indicate massive change of an emotional, spiritual, physical, financial or relationship nature is taking place. This is because snakes are one of the few animals to completely shed their skin. So dreams use change as a metaphor for significant change in your life. The major change snakes reflect means that these dreams are often what Carl Jung called "big dreams."

Also, a snake is a creature and creatures are associated with instinct. So it is usually essential change that is taking place. The number of snakes and/or the size of the snakes usually indicates how big the change is.

The behavior of the snake often indicates what kind of change is occurring. If the snake is aggressive and biting you, it is aggressive change that is occurring. If you are being bitten, but not being harmed, the dream is usually indicating that you were going through stressful change but that it will not harm you in the long run, etc.

Some snakes take on a peaceful and almost beautifully sacred appearance. A dreamer I had in therapy dreamt of a golden snake who would look back at her as if expecting her to follow him out of the house where she was living. She was living with a man that was emotionally cruel to her. The snake was urging the change of leaving that situation.

On the other hand, snakes can be deceptive especially if the dream is making a play upon the words “snake in the grass.” One might want to remember that the snake in the garden of Paradise did not give good advice to Adam and Eve. This is another way of saying some changes are good and some changes are harmful.

What does a house mean in a dream?

At home with yourself
A House Can Be the Dreamer to Some Extent

Dream Answer 296

A house can represent the dreamer to some extent because it is the framework out of which one lives. This is especially the case if it was a house in which the dreamer once lived.

The ages the dreamer was when living in the house (from birth to five years old, from age 12 to 16 years old, etc.) is important. There is something about the dreamer’s present psychodynamics that is situationally similar to the dreamer’s earlier psychodynamics at a specific developmental stage reflected in the dream.

The different areas of the house correspond roughly to different areas of the dreamer’s life. Mental or intellectual processes are associated with the upper floors or roof. An open roof may be a comment on how open minded the dreamer’s mind is, how the dreamer does not protect his thoughts efficiently, or how incomplete and unfinished his or her thoughts are in the sense of being “under construction.”

The family room may be demonstrating family dynamics. The dining room can be associated with how people in the home nurture one another. The garage can represent how people plan to move within their lives.

The living room represents the dreamer’s living space in her life. The kitchen can stand for his creativity since the cook prepares nurturing and creative combinations of food in the kitchen. The subterranean basement can often be a sign of the subconscious because it underlies the reality of the dreamer’s life.

Buildings can signal different portions of the dreamer’s life. Resorts may represent the dreamer’s recreational life or may simply be a “last resort.” Skyscrapers indicate cosmopolitan interests.

Farms may represent ingrained hard work values or bucolic serenity. Universities and, in particular, high schools usually indicate what the dreamer needs to learn in life. Dreams cannot resist using “high school” as a place for your “higher self” to learn.

Dreams cannot resist the metaphor of trains and train stations as a place where you “get your life on track.” Terminals frequently mean where you want to get to in life before you die (before your life is terminated). Airports often signal movement toward higher or spiritual goals in the dreamer’s life.

Shopping malls are frequent in dreams. Dreams cannot resist the play upon words. Dreams often use shopping malls to show how the dreamer has been “mauled” (malled?) in life usually in the person’s career or business life as a shopping mall is a commercial community.

Apartments often suggest only a part, and probably a transitional part, is going to be addressed in the dream. The setting of the dream is almost always important, especially the initial setting. The opening scene often signals what the dream is going to be about. The setting shows the field or area of the dreamer’s life where the subconscious psychodynamics are going to be played out. The above meanings should be seen as tentative hypotheses that the dreamer can confirm or give additional information about.

I am finishing my personal story and sojourn to health by putting MS into remission with the help of the universe/God. It will be my second book showing that dreams were an important part of that journey. My personal psychology enters into the picture a lot. I basically see years of physical abuse as laying the foundation for having the foundation for contracting the chronic illness of multiple sclerosis. Amazon will publish it first as an ebook. The name of the book will be something like MS Mission Remission: Healing Severe Chronic Multiple Sclerosis Against All Odds.
