Dream On...

OK, all you dream interpreters - figure these out!

Dream #1 from Thursday night: For some reason I am in Dallas and have to fly home on a plane (I am very scared of flying). My mom is with me and she is telling me I'll be fine - it's less than an hour and it'll be good practice for my flight to Disney this fall (which is really happening). But she is also trying to get me to check a bag that has a big, black gun in it! And I'm freaking out that they're going to detain me or something because I brought a gun on the plane (even tho I checked it with my baggage and didn't carry it on or anything). Next thing I know, I'm on the plane, but I realize I have gotten on the WRONG plane and I'm headed to Los Angeles! Panic!

Dream #2 from Thursday night: I am at the dance studio where I work, getting ready to teach my baby class. But I can't because the room I use is being taken up by a bunch of the teachers and students rehearsing for some big dance show they're going to be in. And I'm thinking, "Why wasn't I asked to dance in this show? I'm one of the best dancers in this studio!" So I'm kinda pissed. Then I notice what appears to be a kitten has gotten into the dance room, then I realize it's a squirrel! So I go to pick it up and take it out, and it bites me on both my hands. Hard. There's some blood. Now I'm scared I'm going to get rabies.

Dream #3 from Friday night: Hubby and I have a little Chinese girl (I'm not sure if we adopted her or what, but we had her). BUT the Chinese Government is coming to take her back, AND take all of our things! Anything that is touching the floor is fair game. So Hubby and I (and for some odd reason, Hubby's brother) are running around hiding things and putting them up off the floor so the Chinese Government won't get them. I'm trying to think of what possessions I cherish the most and where I can hide them. We are cramming stuff everywhere.

What is up with all that?!??!?!?

Classic anxiety dreams!! You must be feeling anxious about something - afraid to lose something, afraid that you'll be "found out" about something, etc.

My anxiety dreams usually involve high school. Ick.

Yeah, my anxiety dreams usually involve high school, too - can't remember my locker combination (or where my locker is!), it's time for the final and I haven't been going to class so I'm not going to graduate.....stuff like that.

I have been very anxious lately about selling our house - it has been on the market for months with no luck. Yesterday we decided to pull the plug on it and stay here, and it's like a huge weight has been lifted. Maybe the dreams will get better....

These dreams sound relatively sane compared to the ones I usually have. Anyway, what I do when I’m trying to make sense of them is look up several of the prominent symbols on Dreammoods.com’s Dream Dictionary. Here, I did some of the dirty work for ya:

FIRST DREAM

Airplane
To see an airplane in your dream, indicates that you will overcome your obstacles and rise above to a new level of prominence and status. You may experience a higher consciousness, new-found freedom and greater awareness.
To dream that you transfer planes, implies an important transitional phase in your life which will take you away from your intended path. Changes will occur in your life which will take you to new directions and new heights of status and recognition.

Gun
To see a gun in your dream , symbolizes aggression, anger, and potential danger. You may be dealing with issues of passiveness/aggressiveness and authority/dependence. Alternatively, a gun can represent the penis and male sexual drive. Thus the gun may mean power and impotence.

Mother
To see your mother in your dream, represents the nurturing aspect of your own character. Mothers offer shelter, comfort, life, guidance and protection. Some people may have problems freeing themselves from their mothers and are thus seeking their own individuality and development.
To dream that you are having a conversation with your mother, denotes a matter that has preoccupied your mind and you are not sure how to deal with it in your waking life. It indicates unresolved problems that still need to be worked out with your mother.


SECOND DREAM

Squirrel
To see squirrels running around, signifies that you are involved in a loveless or pointless relationship or an unprofitable business project. Squirrels also refers to the act of hoarding. It could either mean that you need to reserve something or it could indicate that you are retaining too much and need to learn to let go.

Blood
To see blood in your dream, represents life, love, and passion as well as disappointments. If you see the word "blood" written in your dream, then it may refer to some situation in your life that is permanent and cannot be changed.
To dream that you are bleeding or losing blood, signifies that you are suffering from exhaustion or that you are feeling emotionally drained. It may also denote bitter confrontations between you and your friends. Your past actions has come back to haunt you. Women often dream of blood or of someone bleeding shortly before or during their periods and when they are pregnant.


THIRD DREAM (This one’s tricky since there’s nothing about China or Chinese people in the dictionary)

Government
To dream of the government, signifies power and the qualities/feelings that rule your life. For example, does greed, lust, or love guide you in how you live? This dream may also reflect your views about society at large.

Girls
To see a girl in your dream, represents your playful, innocent, and childlike nature. Perhaps you have been behaving immaturely.

AMP, that actually all makes sense when I look at the things that have been going on in my life lately!
