Dream 490: Analyzing a series of dreams, or skipping the details and going for theme

A man described having the following series of dreams:

“In my dreams dreams I am sitting at a table in a resturant and then I suddenly am flying and I am aware by the sound and feeling of electricity. I fly to the table next to me and then seemingly enter into this womans smiling face. Then in my dream i am talking about this dream and i start flying again and my head hits a chandelier and i realize OH I AM FLYING AGAIN …Another part, there are these mutant human women who are like white alien mermaid creatures and someone I’m with wants to kill them or hunt them down possibly, but they are fast and stealthy. I see them moving around with light speed precision. We finally come upon them as they are rested and realize they are safe and very precious. They tell us about themselves and their eyes are extremely beautiful and mesmerizing. Another dream, girlfriend and I are walking up my driveway placing crystal alters all along the middle of the path in these big bowls. We reach the end of the driveway. I suddenly see a Windstream van parked on the road and the notice we are standing on a newly built bridge that is crossing over a creek that passes thru my driveway. Im a very surprised. This is new to me and i notice its not finished and so i wont be able to drive over when it comes times. Another dream, I am exiting a parking lot. The car in front of me passes thru the gate and I go behind them while its open. I realize then that I did not pay the ticket I had so I pull over and walk to the ticket machine to pay. I pay and then when I go to walk away a woman comes out and is upset with me for avoiding paying. I try to be nice but she is being cold and tells me she has already called the cops. I explain to her that I was not being mindful and thats why i came back to pay. I shake her hand an introduce myself but she isnt warming up to me. Another dream, a guy is standing in front of Grants Lounge and and ask me for drugs. I quickly realize I know the guy and ask him if he has tried the Dmt I gave him. He mentions something or another about it not being that great. I then realize I don’t know the guy and he has no idea what I am talking about.”

Interpretation

I’m going to be quite short and to the point. In reading this series of dreams I tried to look for commonalities and patterns. The first dream sets the stage for the dreams that follow.

In that dream you are flying which means you’re feeling personally powerful. You also are feeling “electrified” and are quite taken sensually by emotional or female positive emotions. You get so excited at one point that you literally forget where you are and start flying (“there he goes flying off again”) and hit your head on the chandelier.

Hitting your head is often the dream screaming that you have to start “using your head” to avoid trouble. The dreams that follow, in one form or another, are emphasizing the importance of noticing detail and not being taken in by first appearances. This is specially the case when attracted to women or positive emotions, as you become totally mesmerized by beauty, as most men are.

Each of these dreams could be taken separately and interpreted in their own right, but I thought there was a general pattern that may be an overarching issue that may be more useful.

Feedback

The dreamer later gave me positive feedback on the analysis and noted that he had been having issues with his girlfriend and DMT. He consciously thought what the dream was indicating he should do subconsciously.  A dream giving support to your conscious intuition is the strongest support your unconscious can give you.

What does a rat, dust, urine, stairways, a baby carriage, and a dead mouse mean in a dream?

Stairways + rat = sexual mistreatment?
Stairways + rat = sexual mistreatment?

Dream 353: Working It Out

A young adult woman dreamed that she and some acquaintances spent the night in a house. Her work supervisor’s boss was with them. They climbed never-ending stairs that were scary and increasingly narrow.

They arrived in a dark attic. They were exhausted and piled into bed to sleep. She later woke up within the dream and it was light out.

She could now see clearly in the room and was horrified. The room was filthy because it was covered with dirt and dust. She saw a dead mouse on the floor.

She walked to a bathroom. She saw a baby carriage. An overwhelming smell of urine pervaded the atmosphere like what you might smell in a bad nursing home.

She then saw a very large rat sniffing around the baby carriage. She worried about the baby. She started choking because the dust was so thick in the air. The dream ended with her intensely blowing her nose to get rid of the dust buried in her lungs.

Interpretation

This is a classic type of dream. Each character represents a part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of dream interpretation. Her supervisor’s boss was a part of her that’s in charge of her overall work life, career life, or financial life.

There are several things that Freud said that were uncanny. One of them was that when there are stairways , it usually involves sex because going upstairs is rhythmic activity that ends in a climax.

There are many signs that the dream involved being sexually mistreated in the past. Climbing the stairs was harrowing, confined, and she felt horrified at some point in the dream. Also dust is “old dirt” that implies that the body was violated, i.e., the Biblical injunction that “to dust though shall return.”

The mouse was dead which indicated how it may have affected her instincts back then, i.e. she probably felt small and lifeless.

The baby carriage implied reproduction (sex). Water is almost always emotion in dreams. Urine is water that we no longer need, i.e., negative emotion.

The nursing home implied that this happened a while ago. The supervisor’s boss being involved signaled that it either happened in a work area of her life or was affecting the work area of her life now. At the end of the dream, the dream became dramatic and indicated the dust or “old dirt” was taking the air out of her, i.e., that it was taking the joy out of some area in her life.

Another uncanny image Freud talked about appearing in dreams was a rat, which often involved sexual mistreatment because it is an image of what the perpetrator is. All in all, the dream was implying that there was some sexual mistreatment that occurred in the past that was taking some life or joy out of the work area of her life.

Reaction and Feedback from the Dreamer

“Whoa my mind is blown. I have to ponder over this one for a while…your summary at the end nails it but it’s in such a way I never would ever have thought of it like that! Possibly sex related mistreatment in the way past that has influenced me even now to be getting in the way of something I could do to better myself career wise but hesitate based on the impact and dependence the trauma caused in me.”

What does the number eight and stray cats mean in a dream?

Eight is great
Eight is great
Dream 333: Looking for a Home

A young adult woman dreamed of the number 8,888,888 and two stray cats. What could this mean?

Interpretation

In my world, the number 8 is 2 times 4 equals 8. 4 is the number of stability as there at four legs to a table, four legs to a chair, four seasons in a year, four quarters in the year, etc. When a dream wants to emphasize something it gives you two or more of them (two can also mean a couple or duality amongst other meanings).

So having multiple 8’s would be a good omen of stability. Also, 8 is the infinity symbol turned 90 degrees so some see it as representing infinity and abundance.

Cats usually represent affection. They represent the way you feel towards a cat. They listen well, don’t talk back, and are furry and affectionate to their owner.

Cats tend to go with women more as they are independent and sensuous and intelligent. Being stray cats could mean something like your affections don’t have a home and are looking for one. So putting this all together, I believe the dream was saying that if she finds a home for her affections, she will have stability and abundance. The number 8,888,888 is worth millions literally.
