I do hope no one actually relies on the so called dream dictionaries.  The only reason they exist is they make money...they sell.  Almost everyone is curious about what their dreams mean.  There are books, however, that help you through the process of determining what your dreams mean to you.  Everyone is different, thus what something may mean to one person will absolutely not mean to everyone else.  So, throw away the Dream Dick!  It is dangerous.  Remember that everything you have seen in a day including all surroundings other than what you were focused on is recorded in your brain.  When you sleep, your brain acts like a computer filing system.  It has to file everything you viewed that day even though it may have been in the background and you don't remember seeing it.  That's where all the confusion comes in.  Makes for lots of interesting dreaming, doesn't it?

I think certain people at certain tiems in their life can have dreams of psychological significance. But yea boiling it down to an equation of this symbol=this emotion is stupid. I like to shave with Occam's Razor, but that takes a little too much off the top. Plus, many vivid dreamers like us have such nonsensical dreams, that trying to analyze them is like trying to understand a TS Eliot poem.

Actually, I do rely on them ... for a laugh! My friends all know I have crazy-weird dreams, and I've gotten a couple of those books as gag gifts. We always had a great time sitting around and either 1) looking up random things or 2) picking apart someone's dream and finding all the symbols we could in the book, then trying to put it together. I believe one of my dreams came up with the following meanings:

  • I was happy.
  • I was sad.
  • I was relaxed.
  • I was stressed out.
  • I was having trouble at work.
  • I was worried about my job.
  • I thought I was about to get promoted.
  • I was about to make some major change that had me stressed out.
  • I had just made a major change and was relieved that it went well.
  • I was worried about my health.
  • I was angry.
  • I was worried.
  • I was content.
  • I was joyous.
  • ...

... There was more, but I don't remember it all. And remember, these were all from one dream. My own interpretation: Those "dream symbol definition" books are great for a laugh!

Not a whole dream, just an amusing little fragment.

 

Today was an "active dreaming" day. Don't remember most of the dream, but woke up all tied up in the covers, so I know I was moving around a lot. Here's the little bit I do remember:

 

When my alarm first started going off, it got incorporated into the dream--as a smoke alarm. I was standing on a sidewalk talking to someone when we heard the "smoke alarm" going off. The person I was talking to looked behind me, over my shoulder, then looked back at me and asked, "Kendra, why did you set the police substation on fire?"

 

And then I woke up. And talk about frustrating! I'd really like to know the answer to that question, myself! Also would love to know how I did it while I was standing there on the sidewalk, chatting with someone, 'cause if I could figure that out it'd make lighting campfires a whole lot easier! ;)

I REM'd like a boss all last night with plenty of disturbances. Every time I'd slightly wake up, I'd go back to sleep and continue the same dream. In this dream, I delivered some premature babies for some Mexican couple in a church, then the Smoking Man from the X-Files started the zombie apocalypse with some sort of killer plant that killed people and turned them into zombies after death. It's weird because this whole sequence of events was contiguous, yet I had so many arousals and I had the distinct impression that I was laying in my bed the entire time.

I remember when I was a kid - I couldn't have been more than two or three years old, I remember dreaming that I'd been badly burned by hot water, and was carried out to an ambulance, and they put my leg in a see-through plastic cast.  Always kinda haunted me.  I thought the plastic cast was the weirdest thing, until I found out in my teens that they actually have something like that for severe liquid burns.

 

Had another really odd dream about 10 years ago about being caught in a nuclear blast.  I remember the bright light, and then having to brush off a lot of powder from my body - the top layers of skin that were burned off in the blast. 

 

It's kind of odd what I remember from my dreams, it's not so much the circumstances, but the fine details of certain things.
