A 38-year-old woman dreamt that a man considering her for part-time work answering phones was with in a row-boat. She dropped her smart phone in the water. Somehow the phone went only about a foot deep into the water. He grabbed the phone and he handed it to her. She took the phone apart and wiped the water out of it so that the phone was dry. The phone was fine and worked.
A businessman wanted her to only answer phones for him, but she was unsure. Her being surrounded by water with the boss indicated that how she navigated her emotions was key to her functioning in answering phones.
The good news is that the phone did not sink very far, i.e., the idea of answering phones for him might just float. The businessman rescuing the phone pointed to her business action part of her psyche being able to save the situation if she did not go too deep into her emotions. Her not becoming too emotional in her communications (drying the water from her phone) was vital to make the employment work for her.
