What does grey, two people, a bed, and a dog mean in a dream?

Dream 419: Sealing My Emotions
A woman reported the following dream:
“I cannot remember the beginning of the dream however I dreamed about a toy dog…grey..in a normal bed…but alive !!
Two people were on each side of the bed moving him into another place (a room) where the toy dog will be more comfortable. I kissed him from his cheek with passion, assuring him that he will be ok. My lipstick left a mark on his cheek. He shook his head with appreciation and made a noise. I was neither happy or sad. Thank for the help in interpreting.”

Interpretation

The two people involved implies a couple so it’s probably relationship issues. It probably involves sexual issues since a bed is involved. Pets usually go with our affections. Dogs in particular tend to go with feelings of loyalty.

That the dog is grey means that there are some Shades of Grey in the relationship.
The fact that it is a toy dog means it may involve someone who toys with your affections and loyalty or emotions that you may initially not take seriously.

Your kissing him in the dream seals the deal in my world that you are wanting a relationship where people are loyal to one another. This also involves accepting shades of grey within yourself emotionally. It seems like it would imply that you are more likely to be appreciated and have a good relationship if you accept Shades of Grey as all relationships have their positive and negative moments.

The dog being grateful I think means that you will be very much appreciated for your loyalty in spite of the shades of grey within yourself or within a relationship.

What does it mean when cats attack me in my dreams?

Dream 395: Looking for love in all the wrong places

A man had the following dream:

“I have trouble with cats in some dreams. At first I’m glad to see a cat, but sooner or later they claw in my arms or legs and they won’t let go. It’s painful and I want it to stop asap, feeling annoyed and threatened maybe. I don’t really know what to make of it.”

Interpretation

I think this dream is a combination or a condensation of the first two levels of dream interpretation which is as it involves yourself and as it involves you in interpersonal relationships.

To say it simply, you have hurt yourself by having affections for people who do not have affection for you. Pets usually represent your affections. They are probably women given the cat usually goes with women and female affections. In any case, the emphasis is on emotional affection and how you are being hurt by it.

The thought is that on the interpersonal level the people you are having affection for do not only not return the affection, but actively hurt you. It is interesting that the cats will not let go and continue to hurt you.

I believe this is saying that you persist in showing affection to people who do not return the affection, and these people continue to persist in wanting to hurt you. You continue to show affection to people who are not only not neutral, but are hazardous to your welfare.

What do pets and an evil-sounding voice mean in some dreams?

Dream 355: Let It Go

“I just woke up from a dream at 3:06 when I looked at the time. I dreamt I was in a room so familiar with a door open, with a furnace, a lot of boxes, and tossed aside stuff. I had a friend over and a kitten, but that’s not what spoke to me in my dream.

It is when I walked into the room of boxes and next to the cold furnace…my roommate’s dead dog Lily. My buddy! I told my whoever was in the room to come to me, its my dog. I wanted to see if she could see her to.

I heard a meow. I looked to my left. My poor cold underground cat, my baby boy Kidd. I cried in grief but yet happy to see him.

My full attention was on him. He felt cold and a bit damp. Not what I wanted him to be since I found him barely alive in the rain one night. I cried loving him just giving him attention.

I said, “I got my wish. I got to see you again. Just wish you guys were back with me.” Then (Here’s the weird part) a voice came from inside him.

A male voice. Calming, gentle and yet again familiar. He said, “Its time for Kidd Lily and Jack (or scrap) to return now. But remember you’re still with us.” I asked him “do I know you?” He laughed a bit deeply and it worried me.

I hugged my dear cat again wishing he’ll be fine. It hurt to say goodbye again. He continued to laugh then “POOF.” I woke up as they vanished.

I’m curious. Who could that voice be? For months I had wished to have Kidd back. That voice gave him back for a few minutes…You can’t bring back the dead but you can still see them in dreams.

Thank you voice. My wish still came true cause of you. I just hope you’re not evil. My best friends deserve the best.”

Interpretation

I believe that the voice was probably his Shadow. We usually think of the shadow as being negative and aggressive and want nothing to do with it. That is why the shadow talks to him through his beloved cat, so that he might accept what it says.

It asked him to do something he did not want to do, to let go of his pets and decrease actively mourning for them. Owners are usually emotionally close to their pets. That is why parents usually represent our affections.

He tries to reassure the dreamer that he could let go of them because they will always be with him in his subconscious. When we make major changes in life, it is usually due at least partly to the shadow.

Males usually go more with action parts of your mind and that is why it is a male voice that comes out of the shadow, because it wanted him to take the action of letting go. The voice becomes somewhat mischievous and almost evil. That is because we almost always wonder if the shadow is evil incarnate.

Lack of acceptance of the shadow is a danger. The danger is that it has no contact with other parts of the personality that would keep it in line. The shadow is usually only dangerous when it does not have other parts of your mind to limit it. If other parts of the personality are not there, it becomes excessive and monstrous.

What is the meaning of fire in a dream?

Dream 234: Descending Into Hell

   A 28-year old man dreamt that a pet cat was attacking and chewing on his neck. The scene then shifted to a large pit. He was standing to the side of a platform that was being lowered into the bowels of the pit. There were many people stacked on top of one another sideways with their feet toward the dreamer.

   He eventually saw that the platform was descending into hell. Fire raged all about them. A great sucking force was also starting to pull him down into the ghastly pit. He resisted with all his might and reached up to his wife who was at home in bed. She refused to help him.

Dream 234 Interpretation

   Family pets are associated with affections. Dogs tend to go with men. Cats tend to go with women. His wife was angry with him to the point that she could bite his head off.

   The people on the platform he recognized in his own words as parts of himself “that needed to go to hell.” Feet are a supportive part of the body.  The dream was emphasizing feet to show that providing psychological support to himself and his family (a wife and two sons) was a central issue.

Burning Change
Burning Change

   Fire indicates the need for change as fire transforms matter into energy. He had many controlling and intimidating parts of himself that he needed to extricate from his psyche. These parts developed in response to abuse from his father and stepfathers. The dream makes a point of indicating that these threatening parts “sucked” and threatened to ruin the marriage (his wife was in bed at home). In any case, his wife had it with him and he would have to change through his efforts and not rely on her to pull him through.
 

Where’s the Meat?

Dream 217: Where’s the Meat?

Learning to Love Yourself

A 38-year-old woman dreamt she was a thin and starving cat. She saw a dead cat. She as a cat began to eat the dead animal. There was hardly any meat on the bones.

Dream 217–Interpretation

Family pets often represent affectionate feelings with cats being associated with female affection and dogs being associated with male affection. The dream indicated that she was affection starved. Eating in dreams often means the person is trying to make something a part of them. Meat, in this dream, represents substantial feminine affection (since it was meat from a cat).

Eating in a dream often signals that the dreamer is trying to incorporate a quality of character. Her husband paid little attention to her. Her eating a cat as a cat indicated that she was trying to incorporate affection into herself.

It was not working very well because there was almost no meat to it. This dream was mainly about self-love. It can be, as Whitney Houston sang, “the greatest love of all.”

Focus On Your Music and Get Rid of the Stuff

Dream 197: Get Rid of This Stuff and Play Music

A 19-year-old man dreamedOasis_drummer he was going to a shopping mall to find his high school girlfriend that recently broke up with him. He went to a pet store where she worked in the dream. She was cleaning out an animal cage. She ignored him. Her back was to him and she focused on music that was blaring from a speaker.

Dream 197 Interpretation

Dreams that start out in shopping malls are typically announcing that the dream is going to be about how the dreamer was “mauled” in life, in this case by his girlfriend. It is important to remember that each character in the dream is a part of the dreamer’s psyche. The girlfriend in the dream is the part of his psyche or emotions that dealt with this girlfriend.

That it occurs in a store that sells domesticated pets indicated that the dream was about how she affected his affections and instincts. That it was in a commercial establishment implied that the dream was concerned about how it affected his business which was music. The setting of the dream often points to the part of the dreamer’s life that is being affected.

The dream is blatantly urging him to ignore her and get rid of the stuff (euphemism since the part of his psyche that dealt with her was cleaning feces from animal cages) about his instinctual sexual and affectionate feelings toward her. The dreamer was a drummer for a recording studio. The dream was urging him to focus on his music.
