Chomping on Bamboo

Dream 404: I’m a panda bear reaching for the stars

A woman had the following dream:

I dreamed I was a Panda bear, yes, a Panda.
Boy are their lives boring!
I dreamed I was eating bamboo.
While I was eating it I stared at the moon.
And I decided to follow a star all of the sudden.
Next to the moon while eating leaves and Bamboo.
So I climb up on a tree thingy while eating,
And tried to reach for the star,
And was thinking in my dream, wow, we are so small.

And I woke up. Now whats with the Panda people?

Interpretation

Animals usually represent the dreamer’s instincts. Trees involve integration of yourself into the world. Eating usually represents how you nurture yourself. Leaves are green and green usually involves growth because it is the color of plants. Bamboo grows very fast. The stars often represent destiny as in “Our destiny is in the stars.”

The dream indicates that you are by instinct a cute, cuddly and playful person (a panda who is very cute, cuddly and playful) who finds personal growth nourishing. You probably want to go further in your growth and the sky is the limit.

How might the shadow side of sex show in a dream?

Dream 356: The Shadow Side of Sex

A woman had the following dream:

“Twice within a month I have dreamed of large tomatoes… (I’m saying bigger than your head large).

Also last night I dreamed of a black horse that was bleeding,I tried tending to the wounds. It was dark and I was in the woods.”
She later indicated that the horse ran away in the dream.

Interpretation

Food represents support, psychological support or emotional support in a dream.

The tomatoes are large maybe because the dreamer wanted some juicy and nurturing psychological support for which she probably was longing.

At the first level of dream interpretation, a person or animal or spirits usually represents different parts of your mind . Horses often represent female sexual power or energy, literally they are “horsepower.”

The horse being black indicates that this horse may represent the shadow side of sexuality. That part of the dreamer’s world has been hurt deeply and she was trying to repair it and get her instincts back in line. She probably wants to run away from the deep issues of shadow sexuality that this dream may represent.

Like the horse in the dream, she was probably hurt, restless, and running around trying to find her way. Her trying to help the horse in the dream indicates that she probably needed emotional healing.

Stabbed in the Back

Dream 279: Stabbed in the Back
A 26-year-old woman dreamed that her boyfriend stabbed her in the back.
Interpretation
At the first level of dream interpretation, each character in the dream is a part of the dreamer’s mind. The first level is the most difficult and the most productive. Men tend to be associated with action parts of the mind, while women go with more emotional parts of the psyche.

So at the first level her actions are attacking her emotions. She recently was upset over her boyfriend starting to drink again, and it frightened her what whe might do to him which included physical retaliation. She feared she might do some rash and drastic action based on how she felt emotionally.

The back supports us. The dream is using the back as a metaphor for psychological support. She felt that his drinking again was a major disruption of her personal support system. She literally felt “stabbed in the back.”

This latter observation is the second or interpersonal level of dream interpretation. Usually it is the dreamer who is most accurate at this level. The dream interpreter simply does not have enough access to all the interpersonal details like the dreamer does. When the first and second levels are both true, as in this case, we call it condensation. The dream packs the maximum amount of information it can into the smallest space.
