Dream 341: Sticky feelings?

A woman had the following dream:

“Day 9-14 of vivid dreams, all have been about my ex and pretty much the same dream. Last night Day 15 was different. We were at my old church, (we didn’t share the same religion, I was converting) and I was in the kitchen washing baby bottles and baby cups. I remember he was in a hurry but I still finished. I left the dishes in the container clean but with sudsy.

In another dream, I was sitting in a car and my ex was standing outside waiting for me to get out the car with “cheese pringles” for me.

I love pringles; however, I no longer have dairy. I actually woke up in between the dreams thinking why is there so much sudsy stuff on the bottles because I didn’t wash it off?

Hmmmm, not sure what all this means, help please.

Interpretation

The dream probably is about cleansing yourself from feelings about your ex. It seems like the dream is urging you to get”new religion” in your stance toward your ex.

You are getting ready to nurture (cleaning baby bottles and cups), but you may need to rinse off old emotions. The dishes are left “sudsy” and need to be rinsed with water (emotions).

Food is nurturing. The pringles with cheese are something you habitually loved. He is outside the car which suggests he probably is not going for a ride.

It may be suggesting that returning to feelings for him would interrupt your journey to a new place in life. That dairy is no longer good reinforces the idea that having feelings toward him would disrupt your life’s journey. The fact that you are having recurrent dreams about your ex indicated this is a major conflict your subconscious is working through.

What does a wedding veil, car, death of a son, and an older man crying mean in a dream?

Dream 433: There is something I know I should do

A woman had the following dream:

“I had a dream I was in my wedding dress and looking for an iron for my veil. My young kids got out the flat with a strange wee boy. I went looking for them when I found them my little boy was lying lifeless in front of a car the other two kids where sitting up and the man from the car was sitting down he was on the phone crying and couldn’t look at me saying “sorry.” What does this mean?

Interpretation

“Weddings usually represent integration of different parts of your mind and personality. This one is focusing on your actions in particular integrating with your emotions as men tend to go with actions and women tend to go with emotions in dreams.

The clothing represents your defenses psychologically. A veil is something that you would have to look through that partially covers who you really are.

An iron is something you do to take the wrinkles out of your clothes, the wrinkles out of your defenses. There’s also the comment saying that we ” iron out our problems.” You are preparing to integrate, but delay doing so because you want to iron out your problems first, in particular, how you look at things through the veil of your consciousness.

At the first level, your little boy would represent a new action on your part that you delayed doing. Cars are usually vehicles that represent our progress in life.

The man in the dream is communicating with others how sorry you will feel if you delay taking a small action you need to do which involves changing your outlook and not putting off your integration of your emotions with your actions.

My bias is to think that the dream thinks that you should be taking some action which you know you should do which you are delaying because you want to wait till things look better through the way you are thinking about things now.”

The dreamer later indicated to me that you recently had a child and was deciding whether to get married.

What could an unfinished bridge and a possessed person mean in a dream?

sunshine-skyway-bridge-19269717Dream 430: Take Care of Yourself

A woman had the following dream:

“Horrible dream–I just woke up. It is 3am.

I am driving a car and all of a sudden I have to break on a bridge because the road is being worked on (road is only rebar) I have to turn my car in a very small space. Then I found myself in a room with another person. The room is dark with what only seems a small fire lighting it up. I tell someone this person is possessed and the person they are possessed with is obsessed with me. I call them over (in a very demanding voice) the possessed person runs over and tries to hug me and I end up waking up every time. I have woken up twice now. Scared to go back to sleep.”

Interpretation

In dreams, bridges are major emotional passage points in our lives since water virtually always represents emotions in dreams.

Each living thing or force that appears in a dream is a part of the dreamer’s mind. Unknown people in a dream are parts of yourself that you do not know.

I think the dream is saying that you have been making a major emotional transition now that is not constructed, but is being built. Cars in dreams are usually about making progress in Modern life.

There is a part of you that you need to embrace. It seems that it is a part that is totally focused on you, that is “possessed” with looking out for your own welfare.

I suspect that you are very devoted to people you love. This dream mainly wants to help you complete this passage by paying some attention to your own needs to avoid burnout.

What does it mean to have an ex killed by gangsters and to dream of a father you loved?

Dream 391: Avoid Provocations and Act More Like Dad

A woman had the following dream:
“I dreamed my ex and I were someplace about to cross the street as I stepped into the street a car full of young men speed up in front of me nearly hitting me… I panicked and banged the hood of their car. This angered them all as did when my ex told them to ef’n watch what they’re doing. The driver turned looked at his friends in the backseat and front passenger seat… I saw him reach for a gun… I turned and ran…hearing gunshots…my ex was killed.

After that dream waking me up when I fell back asleep I dreamed of my dad who passed away from a heart attack 1 1/2 ago.. It wasn’t so much a dream but a flash of different memories of him, i kept seeing of him in my dream. Smiling, laughing, being silly, making his grumpy faces, hearing his voice, cooking.. I don’t know these two dreams left me wondering if they had any meaning.”

My Interpretation

Each character represents a different part of the psyche with women going more with an emotional part and men going more with your actions. An ex represents a relationship you rejected and he (an action part) is killed. What this means is that you have decided not to engage in behavior that enrages others (such as swearing and pounding your fist in anger) even if you are provoked.

The father in your dream is your father in your mind, your father introject, which is often the basis of actions. You have fond memories of what he was like. It sounds like you want the basis of your actions to be somewhat similar to the way your dad did things.

What does a car revving up and being blown away by the wind mean in a dream?

    Dream 354: Gone with the Wind

    A man had the following dream:

    “Just had a dream that I was in a parking lot. I started my car, and when I was away from it started to rev up by its self more and more and more. I started running towards it when this happened, and a huge gust of wind hit me and launched me into the sky. When I hit the ground I woke up. What do you think this means?”

    Interpretation

    A car may symbolize how you get somewhere in life. The implication of a car revving up is probably that the dreamer’s subconscious was getting impatient with the dreamer waiting on something. Being lifted up into the sky has almost spiritual significance and points to a higher level.

    The fact that the car was revving up and that he was taken up into the sky by the wind which is a natural force of nature implied that his subconscious on both a practical and spiritual basis wants him to “take off.” The dream is not saying in particular what it wants him to do and that is for the dreamer to figure out.

  • What does money mean in dreams?

    Benjamins of Energy
    Benjamins of Energy

    Dream Question 296: Money in dreams is usually personal energy. Dreams often use money as a summary symbol of how much physical, emotional, social, political, financial, spiritual and subconscious energy the dreamer has in a given situation. Money commonly signals the amount of personal wherewithal the dreamer can now bring to bear on a problematic situation in the dreamer’s life.

    There are, of course, other indicators of the dreamer’s personal energy level. Large land animals such as elephants or vigorous sea creatures such as whales or sharks indicate that the energy level of the dreamer is high. The type of animal describes the energy involved. For example, sharks and scorpions are typically aggressive energy, while horses many times go with relationship or sexual power.

    A frequent modern-day symbol for energy involves gas stations. Cars in dreams are typically how you get somewhere in life symbolically in a dream. Getting fuel at a gas station generally indicates that it would be helpful for the dreamer to bring energy from outside of themselves into his or her life to get where they want to go.

    Dreams like to use symbols that will get the dreamer’s attention. Money is an important and essential part of modern life that will seldom escape notice. Money is a particularly salient symbol in many situations that can be used as shorthand for the amount of personal resources the dreamer now has.

    Money is almost certain to capture the dreamer’s attention. And you can take that to the bank. Ka-ching!

    Did My Horse Win?

    imagesDream 254: A 48-year-old woman dreamt that she was walking on the sidewalk in front of the house where she was raised. In front of her were her mother and an attractive woman leading the way. She realized that she did not know where her car was. Suddenly, she was concerned because she did not know if her horse won the horse race.

    Interpretation– The fact that she and the others were walking in front of the house she was raised in, indicates that deep subconscious factors were involved. Each character in the dream is a part of her psyche. Her mother represents her mother introject, would you as the mother inside her mind which takes care of herself and others. The attractive woman is an anima figure, an idealized woman who is the major part of her psyche that would be involved in dating relationships.

    A car is how you get somewhere in life. Realizing that she does not know where it was indicated that she did not know where she was going in life. Horses frequently symbolize female sexual power. Wondering whether her horse won the race was equivalent to dreaming if the man she was dating was the right man for her. They had been involved for nine months, and she seemed ambivalent.

    North to Alaska

    Dream 247: Finding Myself

    A 19-year-old male dreamt that he was watching a same-aged friend drive his car north to Alaska. This friend was an exceedingly “nice guy” who was not very assertive. In the backseat were friends who were very assertive and were the same age as he.

    The people in the back seat were a couple who were close to one another.
    He somehow knew the nice guy driver was headed to Alaska. He envisioned that these three were going to meet some beautiful women he had always wanted to date.

    Dream 247–Interpretationimages(2)<

    The dreamer was in therapy because he lost his temper too often and yelled at others. He had a history of not being assertive. When he didn't get what he wanted and others ran over him, he blew up and lost friends.

    The too nice male driving the car was the action part of himself that was not assertive enough. He is driving because that part of his psyche commands his actions. The male and female in the back of the car were assertive action and assertive emotional parts of his mind.

    The dream is including them to show that he has these potential realities inside his psyche. That they are a couple who get along indicates that it is possible for him to integrate his assertive actions with assertive emotions. Since women most often go with emotions, the beautiful women in Alaska represented new and attractive ways of dealing with others emotionally.

    For him, Alaska was a serene and beautiful place. Thinking of Alaska, he saw a tranquil white glow. White is the combination of all the other colors and is considered the most spiritual color. The dream was assuring him that being assertive emotionally in interactions was spiritually sound.

    Let a Fool Help Drive Your Life

    170525476Dream 200: Let a Fool Help Drive Your Life

    A 44-year-old professional and serious woman dreamt that she stopped at a house to check up on her father. When she got back into the car at night, there was a baby boy crawling in the street that she narrowly missed. Then her carefree and happy-go-lucky brother ran along the car. He suddenly jumped into her lap. She and he shared the driving as she was in the driver’s seat always.

    Dream 200 Interpretation

    This woman was serious to the point of almost being grim sometimes. A house can represent the dreamer somewhat, especially if there is a family member there. A car is how one gets somewhere in life. She essentially checks up on her father introject, usually a major driver of the person’s actions. This dream essentially reviews action parts of her psyche to make a recommendation (since the three other characters are male).

    The baby boy was a new action part of her psyche which had not been integrated and was in danger of almost becoming psychological road kill. The brother that jumped onto her lap was a significant recommendation by the dream. He essentially “plays the fool” and embodies the fool archetype. The dream is recommending that she integrate more fun as a major driver in her life to get to where she wants to go.
