EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : The day before the dreamer had done something he wished he hadn't. He now had to spend time "cleaning" up his image. Cleaning dreams will often link to the wider usage of this word. Think of these wider usages such as "cleaning up my image" or "cleaning up the system". The dream caught this exact feeling "I have been trying to impress my new friend but yesterday I was caught doing something I am deeply ashamed of."
Example dream : In one dream a herd of goats are being cleaned up by the dreamer and they transform into adorable puppies. In real life the dreamer hated the thought off her father setting traps for mice which were infesting their home. Cleaning up the goats was symbolic of the dreamer trying to improve the image of the mice.
Example dream : A dream about clean water sweeping away the dreamers ex lover was linked to her need to move on. She needed to cleanse herself of the bad emotions and feel better.
