DREAM DICTIONARY - Afterwards :If the word afterwards appears in your dream then it is probably no coincidence. It could suggest that you have been thinking about the consequences of something. It may hint at some radical or bold plans which could have unpredictable consequences. You maybe thinking of making a difficult decision which once made will be impossible to go back on.
EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : Cutting off his brothers head and feeling guilty afterwards linked to the dreamer wondering what it would be like to cut himself off from his dysfunctional brother and family. Feeling guilty afterwards symbolised the fact that this was a difficult decision which once made would be difficult to go back on.
Example dream : A dream after a snake attack symbolised the dreamers thoughts about what would happen if she tried to deal with her sons girlfriend who was making false accusations about her. So thinking about the 'afterwards' was a symbol of her worries about how things would turn out - and particularly the unpredictable consequences of confronting her.
