Weird Dreams

I had very busy dreams last night (as usual). This time I tried to make an effort to remember the things I saw in the dreams. The list is:

Rotten Fish
Antique Cars

So I, in my ongoing quest for self knowledge, looked up on the Dream Moods website to see what these particular things meant.

Snakes: To see a snake or be bitten by one in your dream, signifies hidden fears and worries that are threatening you. Your dream may be alerting you to something in your waking life that you are not aware of or that has not yet surfaced. The snake may also be seen as phallic and thus symbolize dangerous and forbidden sexuality. The snake may also refer to a person around you who is callous, ruthless, and can't be trusted. As a positive symbol, snakes represent transformation, knowledge and wisdom. It is indicative of self-renewal and positive changes.

Ostrich: To see an ostrich in your dream, suggests that you are not facing reality and living in a world of your own. You may be in denial or unwilling to accept a situation. Alternatively, the ostrich can symbolize truth and justice.

Rotten: To dream that something is rotten, suggests that you are wasting away your potential. You have failed to make use of the opportunities that have come your way.

Fish: To see fish swimming in your dream, signifies insights from your unconscious mind. Thus to catch a fish, represents insights which have been brought to the surface. The fish is also an ancient symbol of Christianity and Christian beliefs. Consider also the common phrases "like a cold fish", "fish out of water" or something that is "fishy" about a situation. It may also imply a slippery or elusive situation. To dream that you are eating fish, symbolizes your beliefs, spirituality, luck, energy and nourishment. It is food for the soul. To dream of cooking fish, indicates that you are incorporating your new realizations with your spiritual feelings and knowledge. To dream that you are cleaning fish, suggests that you are altering your emotional expression in a way that will be presentable to others. You are censoring yourself and not expressing how you completely feel.

Flood: To see a raging flood with its muddy debris, represents emotional issues and tension. Your repressed emotions are overwhelming you. Consider where the flood for indications of where in your waking life may a situation be the source of stress and tension.

Antique: To dream of antiques, represent your time honored values, tradition and wisdom. It symbolizes something genuine or proven. It also symbolizes things in your past that may be worth holding onto or worth keeping. If you do not like or appreciate antiques, then is suggests that you are moving away from outdated childhood conditioning or old modes of thinking. On a negative note, you may be discarding or rejecting something of value that you should really be embracing and heeding.

Car: To see a parked car in your dream, suggests that you need to turn your efforts and energies elsewhere. You may be needlessly spending your energy in a fruitless endeavor. Alternatively, a parked car my symbolize your need to stop and enjoy life. To dream that you cannot find where you parked your car, suggests that you do not know where you want to go in life.

Okay so, from the above list, I can conclude that:

1. I am unable to accept my hidden fears and worries which is causing me to waste my potential and hide my true feelings from everyone, and such repression is causing me emotional distress, that I am trying to hold on to the past but that I should turn my efforts and energies elsewhere; or

2. I am undergoing positive change and finally facing the truth, but that I have failed to go for opportunities that have come to me, that I am a "fish out of water" with repressed emotions, that I'm moving away from outdated thinking and that I am discarding something of value that I should be holding on to; or

3. I am a bored individual with too much time on my hands and that I need to get my fucking ass to work.

The End.

Last night, I dreamed of my wolf, Baby, and my 2 Bouviers, Sancho and Winnie. (They are all dead.) Then I dreamed that I dropped my toothbrush AND my husband's on the floor by the toilet brush and kitty litter scoop and the drugstore was closed.

I think the animal dreams were visits, but what on earth does the toothbrush dream mean? It was upsetting. I love my teeth. I want to keep them forever.

Oooh! My verification letters are fmhdfckg. Farm hands do that?
