Dream 390: Old MacDonald had a Barn Full of Energy

A woman had the following dream:

“I dreamed that the family I babysit for (I am friends with the mother) had lost like a friend or family member and a very large sum of cash was owed/given to them. The family drove me to the place to pick it up because they needed help getting it. We go to this farm looking space and I walk into the barn/ware-house type building. It was only being lit from the natural lighting coming from outside but it was enough for me to see this huge trunk in the middle of the room that i needed to use to put the money in for the family, there was huge wads of cash and single bills scattered about the floor. I filled up the trunk as much as I could, and left the rest there, as I made my way back to the family’s car. Just because I was the only one in there taking the money for the family, it felt in a way like I was stealing, but i was only doing what I was told to do, I think I felt odd being the one having to go get the money instead of one of the family members doing it themselves, but they said they needed me to help get it for them. When I got to the car, a man who was following me, walked up to us (tan, dark hair and handsome; wearing overalls), said sorry he was not in the room with me to help out and he had work elsewhere to do, and he brought me the remaining cash that was for the family. Then we all drove away.”

My Interpretation

In dreams, money is energy. The barn is a natural and I want to say innocent place where your instincts (animals) are nurtured.

It sounds like you want to give all of the instinctive energy you can to the family you babysit for and want to give even more, but hold back wondering if you should, but then say it is okay because that is what I am supposed to do.

You get the energy free of charge from the universe by doing what you do for this family and you even get paid for doing it (no reason to feel guilty about being paid). The heroic action part of yourself feels that you could give even more energy to this family because it is nothing but good. What a country!

The tall, dark and handsome man is the representation of your own heroic masculine archetype which is often the initiator of therapeutic action, of things that are good for you. This part wholeheartedly wants you to feel uninhibited in giving personal energy to the family (the energy of the universe is supplied to you without your asking for it and this is a good thing for you and for the family).

What do wolves mean in a dream?

Predators on the Chase
Predators on the Chase

Wolves are predators. In dreams they represent the savage predatory influences we are sometimes subjected to. In the dream below, a mother’s protective instinct for her family is expressed.

Dream 301: Protecting my Family

A woman dreamt that a buck deer was leading his family away from wolves chasing his family. As the wolves drew closer, he decided he would have to fight the wolves while his family escaped. He carried on what seemed like an endless fight with the wolves while his family escaped into the thicket.

Interpretation

Dreams like to use words as a concrete pun when it can to get the dreamer’s attention. Why did the dream pick a deer family when it could have picked many other species? I believe it was because a deer family would emphasize how “dear” family was to this mother.

Animals represent the dreamer’s instincts many times. The father buck is a hero. Specifically, he is an instinctive variant of the heroic masculine archetype.

In women, this archetype represents an action part of the dreamer’s mind that she uses to protect loved ones. His motto is “to protect and serve.” It is willing to die to protect loved ones. This archetype is almost always good news when it shows up in dreams.

What this shows is this mother’s endless willingness to fight for her family’s sake. The buck was willing to die if only the family escaped the predatory savage influences that sometimes surface in the world. It is a noble and self-sacrificing archetype responsible for much of the good in the world.
