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.

Scaring Myself

gaff-rigged-sailboat-in-lagoonDream 207: Scaring Myself

A 42-year-old man dreamt that he was sailing across a lake with a small, sleek and beautiful sailboat. The lake was crystal clear water. At some point, he decided to enter a lagoon surrounded by dense forest and plants.

He wanted to go ashore, but the shallow water was murky with a soft and muddy bottom. He did not want to walk through the mud to get ashore. He suddenly flew to the house he grew up in located near the lagoon. He went up a set of stairs to the second floor where his progress was blocked by a vertically  sliding closed door. He slide the wooden door open to find a little boy who made animal noises and tried to scare him. He wondered what to do with the little boy.

Dream 207 Interpretation

A lake is local or familiar emotion. The dream indicated that he was navigating (the sailboat) his emotions relatively well, although he had some challenges represented by his sailing against the wind. The dreamer was a long time alcoholic who had been sober for over a year.

The lagoon represented a place of growth within himself given the plants and trees. The dream noted that his internal little boy was the problem. His immature emotions frightened himself by pointing to what he potentially could do when in immature contact with his instincts. The dream implies that he needs to work on the little boy in his head (the house represented the dreamer to some extent and the little boy being upstairs emphasized how immature instincts affected his thinking).

Clean Up Your Language

Dream 198A: Clean Up Your Communication

A 48-year-old man dreamt that he was a police officer. A mother was telling him to write down neatly the changes that needed to occur in her 12-year-old son. She complained that her son was only getting C’s and D’s.

Dream 198A–Interpretation

A police officer is a superego figure (as are all law enforcement officers.) The mother in the dream is his mother introject which primarily deals with emotional issues. The son is his immature actions.

He recently was getting in trouble with his wife for swearing too much. She complained that his swearing was ruining their positive emotional atmosphere. She thought it was juvenile (the boy) and she and his mother introject gave his speech low grades (C’s and D’s). The fact that the police officer wrote down the information means that he should take special note of what his mother introject is telling him. His superego or conscience is telling him to clean up (write more legibly, communicate more clearly) his language.

Is This a Vision Dream?

Is this a dream of a visitation from a loved one in a dream like “The Sixth Sense” movie or is the dream symbolic? In what follows, it is usually more comprehensive to consider the dream to be both:

Dream 203: Take Care of Your Little Boy

A 34-year-old man dreamt that his recently deceased mother was hugging his son who was six years old. The mother was nodding approvingly toward the dreamer as she hugged his son.

Dream 203 Interpretation

The dreamer noted that this dream seemed almost real. So real that we could classify this dream as a vision dream. Mother in the dream was his mother introject since each character in a dream represents a part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of dream interpretation.

If we look at this dream symbolically, his emotions were giving approval as to how he was taking care of his son because the mother introject is often the foundation of emotions. The dreamer recently stopped negative activities and dedicated himself to being a good father to his son. His subconscious approved.

Mom would be proud. If we consider this to be a vision dream, then it simply is what it is. Which one is it?
