EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : A dream where someone the dreamer knows loses control was linked to the day before when the dreamer got into a petty argument and was annoyed by a boy. She allowed herself to be dragged into a petty mood herself. The woman who lost control was someone who usually managed to straighten the dreamer out if she was annoyed. So this woman losing control represented the dreamers own loss of control the day before. So losing control in a dream simply mirrored losing control in real life.
Example dream : Pest control symbolised the dreamers thoughts about a woman. He was a little confused as she was very friendly towards him yet others were hinting at him harassing her. So pest "control" hinted at something that was getting out of hand (in need of control) e.g. "he is harassing her" and the dream dealt with this theme in the following context "I am confused as she seems very friendly towards me but others think I am a pest who is harassing her."
