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.

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.
