Dream 461: Enough Planning already

A man had the following dream:

I had a dream I was sleeping on a couch. Then I looked at the floor and I saw a turtle trying to get away from a tarantula. The turtle was too slow and the tarantula started to attack the turtle. Any idea of what this means ?

Interpretation

Animals at the first level usually represent the dreamer’s instincts. A turtle represents defensiveness because it’s surrounded by a shell. A turtle also represents slow but steady progress. A spider usually represents planning in the sense that it builds webs to catch its victims. A tarantula is aggressive often.

I would say your subconscious wants you to aggressively pursue some goal and not take the slow and gradual approach for now. I’m taking it that the trantula caught the turtle. I am guessing that your subconscious is getting impatient with a slow gradual defensive approach and wants you to plan forceful action.

What does a white buffalo symbolize in a dream?

Dream 460: Give me a spiritual home “Where the Buffalo Roam”

The Native Americans so the Buffalo as a sign of abundance because it supplied almost all of their needs. The color white is the most spiritual color as it is a combination of all the other colors. The Lakota Indians saw the White Buffalo as uniting all the different races of man. The White Buffalo was always a very sacred symbol that was a good omen of good times to come.

What might Gnats, Fruitflies, Furniture, and Shoes mean in a dream?

Dream 459: These Little Annoying Things Are Getting Old and Stale

A woman had the following dream:

“I had a dream I was in a type of living room or waiting area.   A man came in that I’ve never seen before.  He laid down on the chair and he was eating something.  I went to get my shoes and there were other shoes.  When I bent down there was a lot of gnats or fruit flies (I think it was gnats because they were black).  It looked like the gnats were above the shoes.I tried hitting them away. It ended there.Thank you.”

Interpretation

At the first level of dream interpretation, each character represents a part of hour mind. Men usually go more with an action part of the mind.  Food usually signals psychological support or nurturance.

Furniture and shoes each support us in different ways. Shoes, in particular support your actions and trying to move forward. I think black shoes are more likely to represent financial support as black is often associated with business attire.

Gnats represent little annoying things whose pestilence is feeding on old and stale things. Gnats usually come around things that are decaying and decrepit, around things that are really getting old and stale fast. Gnats symbolize small annoying things that are feeding upon your active support, your shoes.

If it is a symbolic dream, a man eating who sits on the chair while eating with furniture and shoes involved indicates that a part of you or a part of your actions that were nurturing and supportive are feeling walked upon. It also probably indicates things are getting really old and decadent fast. In other words, you may be tired of a situation where you are the one expected to do supportive actions and the negative effect it is having upon you.

The black shoes could possibly imply more of a business or finance part of yourself. So the question would be “Have you been financially or otherwise supportive to someone, and it is getting kind of old if you know what I mean?” These Little things are really starting to “bug” you.

What does blood and hissing mean in a dream?

Dream 458: I have been betrayed by too many people

A woman had the following dream:

Last night, I had a dream that I was with a lover.  We were laying in a bed in my house.  I was holding his hands sort of like playing Mercy. I was holding his fingertips and squeezing them right at the nail beds right at the cuticles. And as I was squeezing his fingers, I was biting my own tongue and moving my head back and forth like a sprinkler.  As I was biting my tongue, I was spraying blood back and forth like a sprinkler.

While this was happening, I was hissing. And there was a very sweet sweet smell in the air–everything smells very sweet. Then, when I stop squeezing his fingers and I stopped hissing and I stop bleeding everywhere. I looked up and I was outside on the road and the smell went away. But then I tried to grab his hands again and recreate the bleeding and squeezing and the hissing so that I could smell the smell again but I couldn’t get the smell back and I couldn’t bleed again.

Interpretation

The setting the dream opens with is usually what the dream is mainly about. In this case, it concerns your intimate relationships. Blood is related to your vital life energy, and usually implies very close or intimate relationships. Bleeding is how you’ve been hurt or how your life force has been diminished.

It starts out with a game of Mercy with a lover. This I believe is a play on words. It implies that you were expecting playfulness and mercy in an intimate relationship, but instead were betrayed and hurt deeply. Your bleeding from the mouth indicates that you’ve been very hurt by how people, people who were close to you, have reacted to what you have said to them about this intimate betrayal.

The dream is being dramatic in using blood being sprayed everywhere like a sprinkler because I think it is trying to say that you’ve been physically, psychologically and socially hurt. Like a water sprinkler covers a wide area, this particular betrayal is so deep that it is affecting all areas of your life.

The hissing is interesting. Snakes are most often associated with hissing. Snakes in dreams are usually associated with change. Hissing is a warning that the snake is going to strike. I believe this is a condensation in the sense that your subconscious wants you to be alert for how you could be hurt in the future.  It also wants you to be careful that in your hurt feelings, that you don’t unintentionally hurt others who probably don’t realize the full extent of what you’ve been through.

Your not being able to recreate the same situation later in the dream, I think means that the dream wants you to avoid any situation that even comes close to the recent betrayals. The dream is emphasizing that what happened is over, and it is trying to help you minimize the damage to your life. A person cannot speak when they’re bleeding profusely from the mouth.  By implication, the dream is saying that you haven’t been heard in the way that you meant it, and it is hurtful to you. The dream wants you, as much as you can, to avoid any situation that comes close to the Betrayal and events after it. The hissing is a warning to be on the alert for it. The dream moves to you being on the road to emphasize that your mind wants you to go on with your life in spite of the betrayal/betrayals.

The dream is not offering a solution other than to point out metaphorically the bloody carnage the betrayals have caused. By implication, it wants you to move on.  The dream seems to be trying to warn you to avoid being played/playing games with people close to you that could hurt you dearly.

What might a starving cat in a vegetarian’s dream mean?

Dream 457: More ways than one to feed a starving cat

A woman had the following dream:

“I keep having a reoccuring dream of my dog.  She is a small dog.  I wake up and she is on my front step.  There is a tub with hundreds of baby chickens. She is eating them and I hear their bones crunching.  It’s scary for me because I’m vegeterian.

Interpretation

Each person or animal in a dream is part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of interpretation.  Animals usually represent the dreamer’s instincts. In this case, it seems the cat represents some part of her instinct too survive.

Household pets usually represents the person’s affections or preferences because of the good feelings we have about pets.  Cats usually are associated more with feminine energy because they are independent, sensuous and intelligent.  I think this cat is announcing what you need to eat to survive.

Her subconscious is dramatically screaming that she needs protein. She does not have to totally give up being a vegetarian, but she should consider doing “social chicken.” After all, 89% of vegetarians go back to eating meat. Especially as you get older, you typically need the protein.

Dreams usually indicate that you can’t always get what you want, but if you try real hard, you get what you need at http://www.drstevenfox.com

What is a numinous dream?

Dream 456: Going down is going up in this pyramid

A woman had the following dream:

“I was standing in a dark empty space and realized my feet felt numb. I tried to feel for the energy around my right foot when suddenly I felt a strong burst of energy shoot downward from the heel of my foot. I looked down and saw a square shaped opening had appeared beneath me and I was slipping down into it. The walls were lined with red brick and I could see it extended far into the darkness.

I knew somehow that this space was the inside of a pyramid. It was made of red brick, shaped upside-down, and empty inside. I had entered through the square shaped base and was sliding down its wall, the space grew more narrow as I neared the endpoint.

I woke up before I reached the bottom, but not too long after seeing the red pyramid beneath my right foot I had a second occurrence.

This time it was energy projected from the front of my left foot. I was floating in outer space looking down into a galaxy. I could see flickering stars far off in the distance and below me was the swirled gases and random debris turning on its axis. I looked around me into the darkness and thought: “this is where all life came from.” I knew I was in the place where all energy is exchanged, transformed, and recycled. I had the thought that all living things knew this place in the back of their minds and are always linked to it throughout our whole lives.”

Interpretation

In some ways it sounds more like an experience than a dream. If I were to interpret it like a dream, I would say that there’s probably a good balance between your consciousness and your subconscious as energy shoots from both your left foot and your right foot. The right usually goes with the conscious energy while the left usually goes with subconscious energy.

I would say that the reason the pyramid sticks in your mind and is very vivid is because this image is very archetypal. I believe it is an upside-down Egyptian pyramid. It is archetypal because the pyramids are images fixed in our subconscious because of their importance to mankind in history and their meaning symbolically involving power and death.

We talk about there being a pyramid of needs with the most basic needs being at the base of the pyramid and the higher needs such as self-actualization being at the top of the pyramid; however, this is an upside down pyramid. The reason for that is movement downward means that you are going down further into your subconscious usually. The dream turns positively cosmic when the energy shoots from your left (subconscious) side.

What the dream is saying is that you reach toward your goal of self-actualization more by delving into your subconscious. The reason it is red is because red goes with strong emotion. So I think the dream is reflecting that you are experiencing personal growth and self-actualization by delving deeper into your emotions and self-actualization subconscious needs.

Your dream sounded like a numinous (I like to say luminous) vision dream which has a sacred larger than life feel to it. In Carl Jung’s world, having a numinous dream experience was always a big deal and significant.

What does a scarecrow and a city underwater mean in a dream?

5a057f504521b95c571c0f0d55846be6

Dream 455: It’s scaring me, but I’ll protect my family

A man had the following dream:

I’m at the sea dangling my feet on the water. I stare at the water for some time. It’s like my mind goes somewhere else. Then after some time I find that the water is beginning to drown me. Bear in mind I’m off shore on the rocks.

I run as fast as I can to the land. When I’m in the Land, there’s a guy in the water. I think he’s standing in a tower of a city underwater, but it looks like the city is drowning. Every time a wave comes over him, he’s just standing in the water like a scarecrow in a garden.

I think he’s calling me; however, I was so scared because I did not want to lieve my family behind. So I ran to my family to check if they were okay because I felt they needed me. I’m not sure what to make of this dream.

Interpretation

Each character in the dream represents a part of your mind at the first level of dream interpretation. Water invariably goes with emotion. The ocean or a large body of water tends to go with the subconscious. The land tends to go with consciousness.

What the dream seems to be saying is that you’re being overwhelmed by emotion so much that it’s almost hard to stay civilized (the city, civilization, is drowning). It is actually good that you resist joining the man who is like a scarecrow in the water. The dream suggests that you run consciously to be with your family because they need you.

The dream may be saying or may be advising or may just be describing the situation where you resist being overwhelmed by emotion and take care of your family.

The fact that the man in the water seems like a scarecrow implies that things you feel threatened by may just be a possibility and may not be all that real as long as you take precautions to ward off bad influences, like people who would prey on your crops, people who would consume what you produce in life.

What might your mother hugging a crocodile in a dream mean?

090510picoftheday-124179911395527600

A woman had the following dream:

Dream 454: I’ll Be Better in a While, Crocodile

 All I really remember of it is that there was an alligator or crocodile, I don’t know which one. It was on the ground and it crawled up to my mom. She was able to tame it and ended up literally cuddling with this crocodile or alligator! She wasn’t afraid and she literally was totally cool with having this animal right up by her. My mom is very compassionate and empathic. Google has not helped me at all to sift through what this means. Any thoughts?

Interpretation 

When you dream of your mother you are in this case dreaming of the emotionally positive qualities you have internalized from your mother. Crocodiles usually represent aggressive energy. That is not necessarily negative.

Your get-up-and-go is fueled by aggressive energy so you need a certain amount of aggressive energy to accomplish your goals. Water invariably represents emotions and this dream is about emotional integration within yourself. The dream is urging you to accept all parts of yourself even the aggressive parts because they can be used positively.

The dream says that you either are or it is recommending further use of your positive feminine mothering energy to accept your aggressive impulses so that they can be put to positive use such as being your get up and go to accomplish the goals that you want to. This dream is all about modulating aggressive Shadow energy so that it can be used positively. The dream is emphasizing that you have it within you to accomplish this.

What might getting a new car from your mother mean in a dream?

Dream 453: Renewed Genesis of Life

A woman had the following dream:

“Last night I had a dream about my mother and I haven’t dreamed of her in quite a while in the dream she and I went to an auto body repair shop to get the front end of my truck repaired and painted (minor accident)so the guy was explaining the process and said it would only cost about $500 for the repair I said fine let’s do it. I went to the restroom and came back the guy said let’s finalize the paperwork so we can get started my mother looked at me and said it’s taken care of I said are you sure she said yes I said thank you and say down.

A few minutes later the guy comes and say you are all set and had a me the keys but I don’t see the key to my truck and mom is standing there looking around and I say to him my key is missing and he shows me another key and says this is your car. I look at my mom and she says I took care it of it. She really took care of it she traded my truck and bought me a new Genesis fully paid for. I hugged her and cried and that hug felt so real I couldn’t let go. We got in the car and left.

Not sure what this means but any help is greatly welcomed…”

Interpretation 

A vehicle usually represents your progress in life in a dream. In any case, your mother usually represents the basis of your emotions. The dream may be saying that your emotions have been repaired.

You may be making some kind of shift from work or the financial part of your life (the truck) to focusing on the beginning of a new area (a Genesis) for your life.
The dream may also be integrating mother emotions.

The fact that the hug felt so real implies a vision dream where you were visited. All in a place, it sounds like a reparative and emotionally integrating dream that wants to give you a new vehicle to enjoy a different area of your life.

What could two trees joined by a bridge mean in a dream?

 

fb_img_1483141189252

Dream 452: Bringing My Higher Self to Others

A woman had the following dream:

“I’m standing on a high bridge whose poles are made of small pieces of clouds. I don’t know how they can keep this whole weight. I don’t see that its something real.I can see on the bridge, now it s forming a kind of egg-shaped plate, greenish color as it has a mild vibration. Beside me it opens a small hole through which it is possible to see a lot of green trees and vegetation which is so thick that i can t see the ground .

This bridge connects two big trees through which flows some kind of electricity, or something like that, and the bridge is feeding them. The trees bend their branches as if they have conscience. Then one of the branches wants me to sit on it.

I’m climbing and at the moment I feel, I rise very quickly in the air. It discharges me from itself, so high above. I’m falling through the hole on the bridge. I’m wearing on my back a bright green disk color that is slowing me downhill between trees. It’s like I’m not from matter anymore. I’m completely empty, and I now know that I’m made of air and light.”

Interpretation 

A disk or circle in my world usually symbolizes the Soul because it has no beginning and no end. Green is growth because it is the color of plants. Trees are major symbols of integration in my world. Bridges are passages in life, going from one stage or area of life to another.

Holy naturalness! Everything in this dream is natural. It sounds like you are probably a very integrated and natural person who might be in the process of bridging two major areas, practices or teachings, or people in your life.

There are two concerns I might consider about this dream. One is the clouds that seemingly cannot support the bridge. The other is the tree ejecting you on high.

When I try to make sense of this dream, I think that it is indicating that the two areas of your life are already naturally bridged. I see it as less concerned about bridging those areas, beliefs or practices in your life because they have already been bridged.

The dream might see you as having very noble goals, but may want you to come down from the clouds and ground your goals in reality. The green disk assures us that you have the Soul and growth to bring these two major areas of integration to earth, to “ground” them, and bring your knowledge to others.
