Try to think of ways in which you might use at least one of the key words above to describe your current emotions. For instance, think of phrases which use the word "shunned" and which describe your current state of mind in general or on some specific issue. You might think of the phrase "I was shunned by my sister. I can sense that there is a family split" or "I always used to shun all attempts to help but now I am willing to accept help from anywhere". If you can use any of these key words in sentences which pinpoint some key emotion its likely that the dream you had about chopping revolves around the symbolism "shunned". In that way "chopping" is symbolic of someone "chopping you off" and ignoring you. The dream simply uses this abstract metaphor to describe this key feeling. Other symbols may help provide more clues and with this you can combine together different symbolic meanings and see how complex thoughts can be portrayed by dream symbols and the way that they mix together.
