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

Having too much fun can make you dizzy

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 breastfeeding a baby mean in a dream?

Dream 361: It’s Your Baby!

A woman had a dream that another woman had an infant about 6 months old that she wanted the dreamer to breast feed. The woman wanted to give the baby to the dreamer so that the dreamer could feed this 6 month old baby. The dreamer said that in the dream her breasts were full with milk, but when she tried to feed the baby, the baby would not let her feed it and kept reaching for its mother.

Interpretation

When we have a new idea, a new project, or a new creation, people often say, “it’s your baby.” If it were my dream, I would take it as a sign that there is a new idea or project that someone came up with that my subconscious does not want me to nurture, that the new project or idea needs to be owned and nurtured by its creator.

What does a dragon mean in a dream?

Dream 326: What does a dragon mean in a dream?

Animals represent an instinctive energy in a dream. A dragon represents very powerful and almost magical instinctive energy. the following dream illustrates this principle.

A woman dreamed that two men replacing millstones deep in the earth through a long shaft because they believed it would unleash energy from the earth. She thought the energy that freed to go to the surface was a wild dragon.

Interpretation

Men usually represent action parts of the mind. Tunneling into the earth usually represents traveling to the subconscious because you are going underneath what underlies reality. Things buried in the earth have an interesting history.

In Greek, Norse, and Germanic mythology, things buried in the earth like a stone or a millstone were seen as bringing forth powerful energy from the earth. In Greek mythology, the Giants sprang from objects buried deep in the earth. The Giants were in opposition to the gods and frequently were at war with them. It was thought that each volcano had a giant buried beneath it which, when the giant was angered, led to eruptions.

So the dream essentially meant that she was unleashing powerful instinctive and almost magically wild energy from her subconscious and bringing it to the service of consciousness in her life. If the dragon was a flying dragon, that would signal even more energy. And if the dragon breathed fire, that would be serious change because fire transforms matter into energy. In any case, it was a very big and powerful dream that forecast new and magically wild energy surfacing in her life.

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.

The Right and Left Stairways

stairs

Dreams 289: A man in his early forties dreamed that he was talking to some girls when he was in high school in New York. It was very casual and relaxed conversation in a restaurant located at the top of a mansion. When he left, he found himself at the top of stairs on a landing where there was a stairway to his right and there was a stairway to his left.

He went down the left stairway and knew somehow that he had to use a phone. He then went down the right stairway and found a woman that looked like his wife. She was pretty and looked like his wife. He thought she looked depressed as she was leaning forward on her arms with her forearms resting on the table. He then saw the girls he was talking to earlier pass by in the distance.

Interpretation

This dream is all about communication with his wife. Stairs invariably represent sex because it is a rhthymic activity that ends in a climax. The left tends to be associated in ancient India with subconscious emotions, while the right usually represents conscious activity. The dream is emphasizing the importance of communication in their sex life.

Restaurants are where people are physically and psychologically nourished. The dream is saying that there was something about the way he communicated with those girls in New York that would be useful in his marriage, that there was something about that type of communication that would be especially nourishing in his marriage.

Movement in this dream is down stairways because their sex life was a “downer.” Movement down the left involves emotion. A phone is at the bottom of this stairway to emphasize the importance of communication.

The right is associated with conscious action. In this case, his depressed wife at the bottom of these stairs represented disappointment over the lack of sexual action, intimacy, in his marriage. The dream ends by recommending interaction with his wife like he had with the New York girls that pass in the distance.

Killing My Disability

Dream 222: Killing the Idea of Going On Disability

A 42-year-old man dreamt that he was walking with his 8-year-old daughter down a path. They came upon a rattlesnake that looked threatening. He killed the rattlesnake and gave the rattlesnake’s rattlers to his daughter which she used as a play toy.

Dream 222–Interpretation

He was an engineer for many years. He quit when his anxiety became unmanageable after he was given an exceedingly critical supervisor. He went on short-term disability. He decided for many reasons not to go back to engineering. He then went to college to become a physician’s assistant.

He did not like the effect disability had on his emotions nor did he like the example it was setting for his children. Each animal, human, creature or spirit represents a part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of dream interpretation. The path represented his path in life.

Snakes in particular represent change, as they are one of few animals that completely shed their skin. In this case, it signaled the massive change in family life that the disability threatened to entrench. The dream was saying thst he needed to change his path in life. He frankly killed the idea of going on disability.

His daughter in this dream represented the Divine Child archetype which were his hopes and dreams. He decided to go into a healing profession which was the medical field. It is notable that snakes are also often associated with healing (think of the two snakes encircling a staff which is the symbol for the American Medical Association). His giving the rattlers to his daughter to play with as a toy suggested that he would even find these massive changes in his life fun.
