Dream Analysis

Shiloah gave me a tip to check out what the dream means. The really interesting thing is yesterday I was sad. I don't know why, I was just extremely sad. I didn't want to go home after work yesterday and just wandered around stores to avoid it. I don't know what set it off, but being so sad yesterday, it would only make sense that my sleep wouldn't be restful. But anyways, according to The Curious Dreamer here
are a few highlights of what my dream could mean.

Trying to avoid an undesirable situation or person can represent avoiding, or wanting to avoid, something in real life. For example, avoiding a friend in a dream may mean you are afraid they will ask you for something you don't want to give, or other unwanted situation. For more clues, consider the meaning of whatever you are avoiding.

Avoiding someone with ill intent towards you could mean you're feeling manipulated, taken advantage of, or threatened (physically, mentally, emotionally) in real life—or you're afraid of it happening.

Escaping or running away from an undesirable situation can represent the feeling of escaping, or a need to escape, from something in real life. For example, escaping from a jail when you have been falsely accused could mean you're feeling falsely accused in real life.

Dreaming that you're hiding can mean you feel the need for self-protection.

Escaping from someone with ill intent towards you could mean you're feeling manipulated, taken advantage of, or threatened (physically, mentally, emotionally) in real life—or you're afraid of it happening.


* Someone or something that you feel wants to take advantage of you or take something from you, such as your time, energy, effort, attention, personal space, or integrity—consider who or what is trying to take from you without giving back
* Greedy or self-serving
* Controlling or possessing

A cell phone or other personal communication device can represent communication—especially personal communication, since it is usually owned and used by only one person.

Calling someone can represent an actual recent interaction with that person or a desire to communicate with that person.

Calling for help (for example, 911) can represent a desire for support, or a feeling of victimization, and it can sometimes represent a call for spiritual help.

A familiar character from a book, movie, TV show, play, etc. might represent the characteristics you attribute to that person. For example, if you dream about Harry Potter, whom you consider courageous, he might represent courage. This could mean you are admiring courage or wishing you had more of it, or you've experienced in somehow in your life recently, etc. A famous character can also represent fame or celebrity, or the actor themselves, or you may be dreaming about them because something reminded you of them lately.

For clues about what the person represents, consider what they mean or signify to you in real life. Also consider their characteristics or qualities that stand out in the dream, what they're doing and how, and your emotional reaction to their presence.

being rescued

* Feeling that you need help or need to be rescued—physically, mentally or emotionally
* Receiving good will or support from others—perhaps because this has happened recently, or you wish it would
* The idea of letting others rescue you or clean up your messes too often
* The idea that you could benefit by being more open to help from others

Consider who is rescuing whom, and the possible parallels with your feelings about your real life right now.

I thought this was very interesting... I can see some of it being very true. Just thought I'd share :)
