The Whole Enchilada

The Hot Enchilada
There Are Many Ways To Be Hot

Dream 293:A 32-year-old woman dreamt that she was an enchilada in a pan with other enchiladas on both sides of her. She was suffocatingly hot. She was so hot that she actually woke up to find her cat and her husband on each side of her.

Interpretation

This dream was true on both the physical and emotional levels of dream interpretation. She woke up because she was physically hot as the heat was turned up in her house and she was between the bodies of her cat and husband. Many people interpreting dreams would stop with the physical interpretation. That is most often a mistake.

While the physical interpretation is certainly true, the emotional interpretation of this dream was also accurate. She was a very nurturing person to her family which is why she appears as food in the dream. Food is psychological nurture in dreams. She admitted that she was “hot” in the sense that her husband had not had sex with her for awhile.

In this case the word “hot” took on multiple meanings. She was “hot” in the sense that she was good-looking. She was “hot” because she had not had sex for a while. Finally her anger toward her husband was a “hot” emotion. To disregard the psychological meaning of this dream would have missed a lot.

Commitment

A Commitment Is Forever
A Commitment Is Forever
Dream 287: A 47-year-old man dreamed that he and his wife were on a beach. They took their wedding rings off and threw them into a pleasantly rising wave in the ocean. They felt safe and relaxed.

Interpretation

A circle is the best symbol we have for the soul because it has no beginning and it has no end. A ring is circular and is worn on your finger virtually permanently. A wedding in a dream represents the integration of male and female aspects of the dreamer as it stands for a man and woman forming a committed relationship.

Water is almost always emotion. The ocean is the best symbol for subconscious emotion that there is. The dream indicated that their emotions were rising. What the dream is saying by their throwing their rings into a rising tide is that their commitment to one another was increasing and creating a new and pleasant wave of emotion. Their commitment to one another created a new wave of lasting love.

Escalating Conflict

Dream 172: Conflict Escalator

A 50-year-old woman dreamt that she was in a shopping mall.  There were twenty escalators in the mall.  Near each escalator were huge pillars supporting the mall.  When she went on the escalators, she was periodically wisked away from the escalator to a shower.  After she showered, she was returned to the same place where she was previously on the escalator.  It was her impression that she was going down the escalator.

Dream 172 Interpretation

Dreams starting out in a mall are typically going to describe how the dreamer was “mauled” or hurt in life.  Escalators and elevators typically convey that the dreamer’s level of consciousness is changing.  That she was moving down the escalator indicated that she was going down into her subconscious.  She was working through a lot of dysphoric emotions.  The dream indicated that she needed to periodically cleanse herself from the emotional impact of past events as she proceeded deeper down into her subconscious emotions.

Let Your Hair Down

 Below is a dream and interpretation from my psychologist private practice. The client is anonymous and biographical details were changed to protect the identity of the dreamer. The interpretation is based upon my book at http:www.drstevenfox.com 

Dream 162: Let Your Hair Down

A 33-year-old woman dreamt that she was sitting in a room.  A group of young adult handsome and dashing men came in and started to help her put on coat after coat, one on top of the other.  After she was wearing three coats at the same time, the leader of the group announced that was enough, that she did not need any more coats.

She then saw herself and a female friend having a discussion.  The friend unfurled her long hair and urged the dreamer to do the same.  They next were sitting at a house of prostitution.  They were simply viewers of the scene.  Each man was receiving money for having sex with each prostitute.  Each man did not enjoy the experience and felt forced to do it.

Dream 162–Interpretation 

The group of young men were various parts of her inner heroic masculine.  These parts typically are protective and encourage positive action.  Clothing represents defenses as they are the outer shell we show the outside world. The number three (number of coats) is significant because it implies change.  She did not like her current job and had sought out and interviewed with three other possible jobs that were interested in her. She did this as she was preparing for a written test at her current workplace.  She had obtained the three job possibilities as defensive backups if she did not pass the test.  The leader of the heroic masculine announced that she had sought out enough jobs for her security.  The implication was to stop looking for more jobs and continue studying for the test.  Her heroic masculine was concerned that she was devoting too much energy on finding backup jobs rather than studying for the test before her.

She worked in customer service.  She felt like she was hired to screw customers over (the prostitutes) who did not appreciate it (she did not like the way she had to interact with customers).  The dream was encouraging her to “let her hair down” emotionally, i.e., to be less defensive (the female friend unfurling her hair).
