Dream 403: Bird of Paradise Defies the Snake

A woman described the following dreams:

Two recent dream’s…
•One large cardinal in the forest..
•One large copperhead

The cardinal was abnormally large, sitting in a tree and I was watching it as it flew down.The snake was coiled at the bottom and errect facing me with its mouth open as I looked at its fangs and talked to someone about its poison.

Interpretation

Birds usually represent freedom, independence and taking flight in life. Snakes most often represent change. Snakes are one of the few animals to completely shed its skin. You may be trying to assess what dangers (fangs and poison) are involved in your taking flight in life. Cardinals are typically red. Red goes with love and intense emotions. Red is also the color that goes with our family chakra.

It sounds like you are trying to assess how much damage or change in your life is going to occur as you become more independent. It is likely that you are especially concerned on how it affects family emotions.

The cardinal being abnormally large probably means you are in the process of making big decisions regarding your independence and flight. The decision you make could be of Cardinal importance.

What does a cougar mean in a dream?

Dream 324: What does a cougar mean in a dream

A man dreamed that an animal warned him to go back because at the top of the mountain he was climbing, there was a predator waiting for him.

Interpretation

Climbing a mountain often represents achieving a goal in life and the high effort you are willing to put forward to reach your goals. Animals represent your instincts. An animal warning the dreamer about the predator at the top is the part of the dreamer that feared making it to the top and wondered if the dreamer could handle others preying upon or using him.

A cougar is very self-reliant and self-sustainable. It hunts by itself and it is not a pack animal that relies upon a group. A house can represent the dreamer themselves because it is a framework out of which you live.

The dream was reassuring him that within himself there was a powerful self-reliant and self-sustainable competitor that could compete with anyone else. It saw him as capable of succeeding by himself and not needing a group of others to succeed. He had a powerful part of himself that would take care of business.

My Creativity Is Voracious and Is Eating Me Alive–This Is for the Birds

PR angel: at the International Birdman Competition in Bognor.Dream 191: My Creativity Is Eating Me Up

A 30-year-old man dreamt that he was looking at apartments in the town where he grew up. The first apartments were all desolate and decrepit and did not look fit for human habitation. He came upon an apartment complex which was well-built. As he looked up at the multi-storied complex, he saw bird men sitting in a row on a ledge. These half human, half bird men were just sitting there inactive, with an occasional ruffling of feathers.

The dream shifted to him being inside one of these luxury apartments. He remembered trying to go into the kitchen, but a bird man blocked his way. He was then surrounded by bird men in the living room.  The bird men began eating him.

Dream 191 Interpretation

His early life was confusing to the point that he ran away from home when he was twelve. He lived on the streets, staying with friends, most of whom lived in apartments. The early run down apartments in the dream were an accurate depiction of his early life which, of course, had a major impact upon him.

The high-rise apartments are describing his more recent development. He was a complex person who wrote poetry that was quite good. Birds can represent freedom, and he was a very self-reliant and independent man. The birds are inactive early in the dream. Flight is often indicative of spirituality. His spirit not flying was ruffling his feathers.

He did not have a job that he could tolerate. He felt compelled to write, but had recently stopped writing because of depression. The dream is saying that he wants to create (the kitchen is a place of creativity), but he had writer’s block. Not writing was making him depressed, it was figuratively eating him up.
