Dream 512: Change, Change, Change
A woman had the following image dream: “A very long black snake with three heads and glowing red eyes.”
A snake is a symbol of change since it’s one of the few animals that completely sheds its skin. Three is the number of change in the sense of three people in a relationship is the most unstable situation you can have–things are going to change.
Red usually indicates strong emotion–it can be either anger or love depending on the situation. The eyes are said to be the windows to the soul.
She is orobably anticipating or going through some major kind of a change that is very emotional. How the snake is behaving is important. Is the snake threatening and moving, something she observes from a distance, etc.? Her feelings in the dream would also be key here. How she feels in the dream is likely how she feels about the changes or coming changes.

Dream 451: I need to cool my emotions to do what I need to do
A woman who is an expert in astral projection had the following dream:
“I found myself flying in the air with a red balloon attached to my waist. I was flying over a busy city street wondering why I had the balloon attached since I had always flown in my dreams without it. I sat on top of a very high building for awhile watching below. Later the balloon got caught in a tree and it seemed a hindrance although I was able to break free easily. Three men convinced me to come down (I didn’t want to) and they took me to a large blue pool of water. They placed me in the pool and said I had some emotions to deal with. There were many people in the pool. I was reluctant to speak with them as well as be with people on the earth but after a day they made me feel comfy even hugging me and almost protective like. After about 3 days I knew I did not belong on the ground any longer yet my balloon was no longer with me. I did not know if I could fly without it but I knew the sky was where I belonged. Their vibrations were too low and I had to get away from the overwhelming negative emotional energies coming off them. I lifted off without it and knew I was free without the balloon which I had seen as a handicap. My journey had begun again as I thought of which direction to head, then I woke.”
Red usually represents strong emotions (love, hatred, anger, etc.). The pool of water (water is virtually always emotions in dreams) sounded like a place to cool your emotions down. Blue might mean she was feeling blue. Then she was free to fly without emotions that may have been interfering with her integration (since there were trees in the dream–trees usually represent integration because its roots reach down into the Earth, it opens up to the sky and it is here on the level).
The balloon, in this case, was a hindrance which I think was the dream’s way of assuring her that she can rely on her own internal guidance and did not need an exterior force to rise above the chaos below.
There were three (the number of change) men (who are associated with action parts of herself) because the dream specifically wanted her to change some part of the way she did things. She needed to return to Earth to get “grounded” in mundane reality, but there was no keeping her from astral projecting for long. This transformative dream was probably about working through an emotional block.

“I was walking around a mall alone. I was going around and around the same shops like I was trying to find a special one but never could. Then I finally found it and it looked like a clothing and candle shop.
I went in immediately searching for a cobalt blue candle. I wanted the largest one I could find with 3 wicks. I was smelling them and the smells were vivid and I found one I wanted.
Then I was standing near the checkout and there were some long single chain necklaces. I searched thru them until I found a long gold chain with a feather charm on the end. I went to grab it but as I did some other woman grabbed it too. We debated for a bit who had it first and she let me have it.
So I went back to the checkout counter and realized I had lost my shoes. I had been wearing white socks with colorful Nike sandals. I don’t ever do that. But seemingly someone took my sandals when I had taken them off debating the necklace issue.
A guy who worked there confronted me asking where my shoes were. Then he said show me the bottom of your feet. He wanted to see if I had been walking in the grass in my socks. When I raised my foot it was covered in grey dirt not green.
Then I started talking to a guy standing in line in front of me and he was making a payment on something that the store was charging him interest on. He had a large check that he showed me was written out for $3333.”
One thing I’ve found to be almost always be true is that if you have a dream about a shopping mall, the dream usually is going to be talking about how you have been mauled in a business, career, or financial sense.
Looking for a candle implies you are always trying to look for the light in a business situation and usually you are able to sniff out what is right. You have to compete with other people who may be onto the same thing, but usually you can convince others to see it your way. Looking for a candle implies you always try and look for the light in the business situation and usually are able to sniff out what is right.
You have to compete with other people who may be on to the same thing, but usually you can convince others to see it your way.
Cobalt blue usually would go with mental activity and speaking out loud according to the chakra system if I looked at the concept of blue in a broad sense.
You can usually sniff out what is good and is likely to lead to change (smelling the candles and three is the number of change as there are 3 wicks).
I like the interpretation of the golden necklace with a feather being having valuable intuitive ability that you can bet your neck on (the necklace) and that can take wing(the feather).
The debate with the woman indicates the you can usually convince others to see it your way for your own advantage.
Socks are usually protective as are sandals in getting you to where you need to go. It is interesting that these are white socks. White is the most spiritual color that there is.
The whole thing about the socks and the grass and the dirt and the Nikes I believe indicates that you are willing to do what needs to be done and do not necessarily do things just to look good.
You sometimes and probably more often are more willing to do the dirty work (the grey on the socks) than to do things for your own personal growth (the green from plants on the bottom of your socks). You focus on getting the job done and not necessarily protecting yourself excessively and are willing to make yourself vulnerable to a degree.
The final image of the guy paying off the $3333 debt he was being charged interest on is perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of this dream. Money is energy in dreams. It can be money itself but it also can be energy that other people have loaned you in in this case.
The dream is emphasizing that you need to pay back the favors you’ve been given before they end up costing you too much. It could end up costing you more if people feel that you have not shown enough interest.
3 is the number of change and you have four 3’s. I believe the dream might be saying that if you change this aspect and pay off the favors early, it will lead to stability because 4 is the number of stability as there are four legs on a table, four legs on a chair, four directions, four seasons, etc.
This is a nicely done and well rounded dream about how to conduct your career/business/financial aspects of your life.
Feedback from the Dreamer
The dreamer gave me the following feedback:
“Steven-this is pretty awesome! I wanna show u how accurate. Hugely mauled over at work but also benefiting from it and competing not for the same position but to do the same work..long story and it’s incredibly draining has been for months. My intuition is always spot on especially regarding others’ intentions. I have a hard time verbalizing that and sharing my insights and hold back on speaking about it especially lately and even when asked. I always over exert myself and energy in order to ‘get the job done’ re: the dirt not green. The check for $3333 was interesting and I remember thinking he bought an engagement ring with it and was making payments. Although I did recently have a reiki session and now I’m wondering if I need to be repaying them or the universe in some way to pay it forward.”

A woman dreamed she was in a gigantic cathedral whose ceiling went far into the sky. There were 3 five-year-old boys who ran over to a pew where she was. They were very excited and each wanted her to choose him.
She felt she had to touch each of their hands to pick the right one for her. She felt a massive energy exchange when she touched each one. She then had a second dream of a tiny loving puppy curled in her lap.
The dream starts out in a Cathedral so it is probably about spiritual choices. There are three young boys. 3 is the number of change because 3 people in a relationship is the most unstable situation .
The idea is that each of the little boys is a part of the dreamer’s psyche. They are action parts of her psyche because they are male. (Female characters tend to go with more emotional parts of the mind.)
The dream was predicting that the dreamer will pick a new course of action with spiritual implications. Puppies like kitties usually go with affections. Only puppies usually go more with men which again goes with an action part of the mind.
All in all, looking across the two dreams, they were probably predicting, I believe, that she was going to choose a new course of action which had spiritual implications that she was going to love. The energy exchange she felt when she passed her hand in front of each boy indicated that her choice will bring new energy into her life.

Dream 307 Grow in Awareness of Your Subconscious Emotions or Take a Good Look at Yourself
A woman saw three children running toward a building. Then she found herself in a room which had a fair going on in it with a circus atmosphere replete with concessions, vendors, games, monkeys, fountains of chocolate, costumes, etc. She then saw three kids with a vendor.
The vendor and the three children were in a kitchen. One of the children was licking a bowl after a cake was made. They were listening to the man. He had blue coral growing on half of his face.
The man turned to her to demand that she should be teaching the children about the ocean which is what he was doing. It was all important that she teach the children about the ocean.
Three is the number of change. Three is the number of change because 3 people in a relationship is the most unstable interpersonal situation possible. Things are going to change. Each character is a part of the dreamer’s mind. Children would be relatively new parts. So the dream was saying that she needed to change by integrating relatively new parts of her thinking.
There are a lot of entertainment figures in this dream. The dream may be saying she needed to have more fun and play in her life. The kitchen is a place of creativity and nurture.
The man wants to talk about the ocean which basically is the subconscious. I believe the dream in a larger sense is saying it would be helpful to her creativity (the kitchen). It would also sweetly nurture (the cake bowl) the dreamer to look at her subconscious emotions (teaching the new parts of herself–the children–about the ocean).
Coral is alive and is growth in the ocean. The dream is screaming that exploring her subconscious emotions would lead to growth in how she looked at herself (the coral is on his face). She had to face up to it.

Dream 275: Cut It Out–No Yearning for the Meat Market A 36-year-old woman dreamed that there were two copy machines at her therapist’s office, a regular one and a large one. The regular copier worked fine. The large copier produced over-sized copies. She adjusted it so that it produced copies that were only 104% the size of the original.
She then saw herself driving a car through a forest. At different times a man in a white suit with a butchers cleaver would appear to the right as an image to her. These images appeared three times.
The dream shifted to a cow that was disoriented and “loony.” It was pointlessly milling about and mooing like it was yearning for other cows. It stumbled into a mud pit, but was able to climb out of it.
The copy machines were encouraging her to retain what she learns from therapy (since her therapist was in the dream and copy machines are used to keep information). The dream was urging her to retain what she learned in therapy. The different sizes were urging her not to “make mountains out of mole hills” as the large copier was so large it was almost unusable. It also indicated she was trying to get a good perspective on things in her life as she was only exaggerating concerns a bit (104% images).
Three is the number of change as three people in a relationship is inherently unstable. The three (change) white (white is the most spiritual color) men were the conscious (the right side tends to go with conscious action) heroic masculine or action parts of yourself urging her to “cut out” (the butcher’s cleaver) some behavior. The appearance of the heroic masculine (the action part associated with positive change in psychotherapy) and the color white implied this is deep spiritual healing. The forest simply indicated that she was “not out of the woods yet.”
Dreams are seldom subtle. A butcher’s hatchet, along with a cow later in the dreams may be suggesting that she avoid being on the “meat market” dating scene because it would drive her “loony.” It wanted her instincts (animals represent instinctive urges) to avoid getting “stuck in the mud” and avoid yearning too much. That her instincts were able to climb out of the mud was a vote of confidence from her subconscious.
Dream 274: A 38-year-old man dreamed he was in New York eating cheeseburgers with his high school friends at a fast food restaurant where they typically had cheeseburgers and fries. The three friends left in a hurry while he went to the bathroom. He found out that they had already paid the waitress. The scene shifted to his making his way to board a plane, but he had to kick along a soccer ball a long ways to get on the plane.
Each character in the dream represents a part of the dreamer’s psyche with men going more with actions while women are most often associated with emotion. Three is the number of change as three people in a relationship is very unstable. Waitress implies waiting or patience.
Money represents energy often. A bathroom usually represents things the dreamer has to get rid of or change because he no longer needs, in this case, a certain behavior pattern.Flight is almost spiritual and boarding a plane often goes with the dreamer trying to accomplish a higher goal. Kicking along a soccer ball is, of course, aerobic activity.
The dreamer recently was struggling to lose weight. His subconscious recognizes that the first habit he needed to get rid of was eating fast food like he had been doing since high school. The dream wanted him to be patient (the waitress) and assured him he would save money (he did not have to pay the restaurant bill).
With the soccer ball and the airport, the dream was directly recommending aerobic exercise for him to reach his goal of losing weight. He literally had to kick the habit. In summary, the dream recommended exercise and to quit eating junk food.

A twenty-something woman had the following dream: “The other day I had a dream about ghosts in my room, it opened my bedroom door and opened all my dresser drawers and started throwing out all its contents. Then awhile later in my dream, I was in a cabin like house with my mom and I saw 3 orbs, like silver lights, dancing all around the room. I kept saying “mom look! Mom look!” I didn’t know if she could see them. Then suddenly they were coming at me, and as soon as they were up to my face they turned into bubbles that were thick enough to touch without popping. The other integer thing I remember is having an abundance of jobs coming up in my near future. Just thought it was a pretty cool dream to have.”
Interpretation: Clothes usually represent your defenses. The ghost literally represents your spirit. By throwing the clothes on the floor your spirit is urging you to be less defensive. Orbs and circles are usually representatives of the soul and I would have no problem with seeing them as guides.
Houses or cabins can represent the dreamer because they are frameworks out of which you live. The number three is significant because it is the number of change. Three people in a relationship tends to be unstable, and things are going to change. So the dream is predicting personal change.
It is interesting that I think this dream is partly symbolic and partly predictive. Bubbles are made of water and water is emotion almost always. That they do not burst is a good sign because I think the dream is predicting job opportunities for you in the sense that ” your bubble will not be burst.” The ghosts are probably more defensive spirits or attitudes from the past that need to be thrown out. The orbs are likely to be new possibilities she is facing. The orbs are a good omen.

Dream 258: A 31-year-old woman dreamt that she was a counselor to dorms full of kids ages sixteen to twenty-something years old. Parents were visiting the dorms that day. A female coach sans windbreaker and athletic clothes told her that she had spoken to three young men in one of the dorm rooms. They told her that the dreamer’s legs were not fat, but they advised that the dreamer should shave her legs.
Interpretation: Each character in the dream can be a part of the dreamer’s mind or psyche. Male figures tend to go with actions while women are usually associated more with the dreamer’s emotions. The dorms full of kids show that the dream is going to talk about her development socially (these ages are critical in social and sexual behavior).
Parents visiting indicates that the subconscious will be discussing parental influence on her social development. That she is a counselor indicates that the dream wants to speak to the psychologically insightful part of her. The female coach is interesting because we think it is primarily emotional in nature, but the athleticism this part of the mind brings to the table shows that the unconscious is going to be focusing on how her emotions affect her actions.
The three young men indicate that the dream wants her actions to change (three is the number of instability since three people in a relationship are unstable.) They specifically give the coach of her emotions the message that her inherent appearance is fine (her legs are not fat), but she should take action to improve her situation. The message directly says that she needs to rid herself of hairy situations that she does not need, i.e., shave her legs.
It is notable that legs are supportive and get us where we need to go. Her subconscious wants her to accept herself and get rid of hairy situations she lets grow on her that interfere with her getting to where she needs to go.

I am finishing my personal story and sojourn to health by putting MS into remission with the help of the universe/God. It will be my second book showing that dreams were an important part of that journey. My personal psychology enters into the picture a lot. I basically see years of physical abuse as laying the foundation for having the foundation for contracting the chronic illness of multiple sclerosis. Amazon will publish it first as an ebook. The name of the book will be something like MS Mission Remission: Healing Severe Chronic Multiple Sclerosis Against All Odds.
A 20-year-old woman dreamt that she was in the hospital after recently giving birth to a baby girl. She dreamt that her attractive and social girlfriend was now giving birth to a baby boy. She previously had gone on double dates with this friend. The dream shifted to her driving to a barn located near a highway. The barn was brown. It had three horses within it. She went and took care of the horses. She later returned to the hospital where her friend was. She wondered if she closed the gate.
The dream started out the scene with a hospital which implies that some healing needs to take place. In reality, the dreamer recently gave birth to a baby girl. Her remembering this during the dream was juxtaposing her role as a mother with her role as a woman. She was being told that a new action part of herself (the baby boy) was being born in relation to her being a heterosexual woman because the baby boy’s mother was associated with her femininity.
The brown barn represents earthiness and being grounded, especially because it was brown. Horses often represent female sexual power. The number three indicated that some change in her definition of herself as a woman was taking place. That there were three horses emphasized the strength of her feminine powers (horsepower). When she tended her instinctive sexuality, she had to do so alone, without her child. She wondered if she had let her desires run wild because she worried about closing the gate after the horses had already left the barn.
