Dream 468: I need to change some things about myself
A woman had the following dream:
“I had an unusual dream about tattoos under each one of my arm pitts. I don’t have any tattoos or want them but there were 3 inside my arm pitts. They were small like a dime size. One had a date like March 11th on it. What does that stand for? It was very strange.”
Three is the number if change. You do not like tattoos. The tatoos are in an unusual place that cannot ordinarily be seen by others, the pits of your arms.
The number eleven implies a sense of urgency, as we talk about changing things before it is too late, ie., we especially need to change when a situation is “in its eleventh hour.”
It is notable that the Japan tsunami was on March 11th of 2011. Water is virtually always emotion. A tsunami is an unexpected flood of emotion.
I think that you may believe that you need to change things inside you that are hidden, but close to the surface, that you consider to be “the pits.” It is likely that you may have recently experienced a flood of emotions that made you think that there was a strong urgent need to change things about yourself that you do not like.
The dime is interesting. I am reminded of the saying, “to stop on a dime.” I believe this is added emphasis that the emotions mainly need to change now.
The dreamer later told me that she was flooded with emotion from the recent death of her mother. I recommended that she attend grief counseling to make the change of expressing her emotions more.
