EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : In one dream the dreamer was thinking how he might have to venture into dangerous and risky places after an apocalypse. In real life he had been thinking the night before what might happen if his father died in an upcoming operation. He visited his father on a daily basis and suffered from chronic problems with confidence. If his father died he would have to find new friends and places to go. So the night before his mind was focused on how his life would become much more difficult and he would have to meet new people. Overall he would have to take much more risks as his life with his father was very safe and settled.
Example dream : In one dream the dreamer was in extreme danger. This was a symbol for him having to complete something very quickly or he would be in "deep trouble".
Example dream : A swimming pool where dangerous things take place linked to the dreamer telling her ex just what she thought of him. The danger symbolised the blunt way in which she spoke to her ex. What she wrote was controversial and could provoke a response. The symbolic meaning of danger could be translated into the words "provoking someone" and overall the dream caught this thought process "I was writing a message to my ex last night. I feel proud of myself for saying what I thought. But I did delete some paragraphs because I did not want to be controversial and provoke a response. I just wanted to make my point and stand up for myself."
Example dream : A parachute not opening dream linked to the dreamer being a skydiver. In the dream he expects to die but then learns to fly. The dream is an emotional dream showing how he gets a buzz out of danger.
Example dream : In one dream the dreamers grandmother does something dangerous, she drives a car or truck when she is clearly too old at 100 years old. This theme was relevant in the dreamers life as the next day the dreamer feared that his friend would do something dangerous the next day. His friend was going to be undergoing cancer treatment for the first time and would probably be very confused and dazed afterwards. His friend was borderline autistic and the dreamer feared he would be a bad patient. The dream seems to link to this thought "He will be very ill and confused tomorrow after the treatment. He will try to do something that he cannot do. I know what he is like, he is borderline autistic and will be a very difficult patient."
Example dream : Danger in one dream symbolised her father who may react badly to her meeting some relatives. Danger reflected the belief that this could cause problems - she was worried that her father would not accept these new additions to the family.

Example dream : A need to escape danger represented the dreamers worries about tension at work. He was getting worn down by this.

Example dream : The dreamer was confronting his own phobias. The danger in the dream from deliberately handling snakes represented his ability to cope with situations which caused him fear.
