Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook ATTEMPT : It is important to analyze not just the symbols in a dream but also think about what is happening and how you are behaving and reacting. I have studied dreams where you are attempting to do something. These are very revealing and interesting 'symbols'. If you are trying to do something in dreams it will often link to issues where you need self will or where you are battling against someone who is very determined. One 'attempting' dream occurred after the dreamer had realised that she was taking on too many responsibilities. So the dream was revealing her admission that she was 'attempting' to do too much.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Have you taken on too many responsibilities recently?
- Has someone been trying to put pressure on you or make you feel a certain way?

KEY WORDS : Unable, wanting, stressing out, doing too much, frustrated, made to feel guilty

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "I wanted to but simply could not"
- "I simply do not have the CONFIDENCE to do that"
- "I just cannot seem to manage it"
- "They are TRYING TO MAKE me feel bad"
- "She will NOT LET me make my own choices"
- "I simply will NOT LET them do that to me"
- "I simply TRY TO do too much"
- "I REALLY WANTED TO do it"
- "I am just STRESSING out and not making any sense"

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.

DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of attempting in dreams?

Attempting something may show that others are making repeated efforts to make you do something. You may feel as if you are battling against overwhelming odds. E.g.

"My mother wants me to be more commercial in my career aims. I am trying to resist her" [Dream Dictionary - My mother makes several attempts]

"I am just going through a break up. I feel humiliated and rejected" [Dream Dictionary - teenagers are attempting to steal my car]

"I am trying to be more disciplined but I slept in again." [Dream symbol - people are attempting to kill me or lure me out]

"I was taking pictures of surfers yesterday but the tide was dangerous. I had to stay well away from the action. "[Dream Dictionary - I attempt to move forward but its against the law]

"I am trying to adopt new ways of thinking" [Dream Dictionary - I attempt to get out of a room but fail]

"I have lent money from my grandfather and have been accused of stealing and taking advantage of him. But I only lent the money off him and intend to pay him back. He does not behave like he has had money stolen off me" [Dream Dictionary - I am stealing from a shop but the shop does not attempt to stop me]

Attempting to do something may show that you are nervous or stressed out about something. You perhaps do not know what to do. E.g.

"My ex has been spreading rumors about me. She has just split up my relationship with my new girlfriend. I cannot prove it but I am sure of it" [Dream symbol - attempting to stab a guy]

"I have been thinking about future careers and feel like I have been pushed into things I cannot do"[Dream Dictionary - put the bucket on my head in an attempt to save myself from the spray ]

"My daughter fell out of bed in the middle of the night. I am stressed out about that and everything else. I am burnt out right now" [Dream symbol - every attempt I make to control the car has unexpected results]

"I have just turned 30 and I am depressed. Its something I am having difficulty accepting "[Dream Dictionary - I attempt to wake up in the dream]

"I have a new manager at work. I am wondering if this changes things for me. He has said that I will be left to my own devices" [Dream dictionary - attempting to organize a funeral for the president]
