Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM DICTIONARY : This dream dictionary makes the claim that it is better than any other. Why? It works on the assumption that if something very big and important happens the day before then you will surely dream about it. This dictionary collects together such dreams and has meticulously studied their meanings. Try to study the definitions and questions below and see how they relate to real life right now.

DRUGS : Drugs can link to people who have become divorced from reality. They can also link to moments when we were deluding ourselves. Think of some moment the day before where you may have thought things were going much better than thought.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Did you get carried away and totally lose sense of reality yesterday?
- Have you been deluding yourself about the truth of your situation?

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.

ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of drugs in dreams?

Drugs are symbols of a false reality. When we take drugs we escape from the general boredom or unpleasant reality of life. E.g.

"I think he is getting increasingly DIVORCED FROM REALITY. He just sits in his room and never talks to anyone."[Dream Dictionary - Drugs][the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

"I felt really cool at the time but I guess I was DELUDING MYSELF"[Dream symbol - violin stuffed with drugs]

SAMPLE DREAM
----------------------------------
THE DREAM I was in our childhood home. My brother was away for a day and a half not notifying anybody if he was OK. He suddenly turns up in the early morning as I am preparing for the day. He looked emaciated and "concentration camp" thin. Skin was hanging off his bones. He seemed to be a younger age than he is now though.

I was very concerned about my brother's appearance but he shrugged it off. I persisted and asked if he was on drugs? He said yes. I looked at his left arm and there were fresh needle marks there. It was at this point I got angry as he was the older sibling and should know better(my brother did very well in school, I did not). We entered a conversation about the reasons why (unfortunately can't remember details) but basically he needed them to survive day to day life. It was like a role reversal in that he was confiding in me as if I was the older sibling. I seemed more mature than he at this point.

THE REALITY In real life the dreamers brother is 50, obese, heavy smoker and doesn't exercise. He locks himself in his computer room and is quite antisocial. The dreamer had been increasingly worried about him.

DREAM ANALYSIS The dream was about the dreamers brother and because the worries in real life seem to match the similar worry in the dream then the dream can safely be linked to this issue.

The dream deals firstly with the dreamers brother. It Then starts to deal with this specific issue of drugs. The drugs are symbolic in this case. They refer to the dreamers mindset. It shows that his judgment is not perfect. Drugs often link to skewed vision and thoughts which are becoming increasingly divorced from reality.

In this case the dreamers brother needs these drugs. That shows that the dreamer is understanding that the views that the dreamer's brother is developing are linked to the reality of his situation. They are probably a coping mechanism.

The fact that the dreamer is older than his brother in the dream shows that the dreamer now accepts that a role reversal has taken place. He is now the more mature brother and needs to guide and help his brother.

So the dream is very much about understanding his mindset and that will maybe help him in getting through to his brother that he needs to change his ways.

Symbolic Meanings
DRUG : "divorced from reality - the dreamers brother is cut off from reality"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I am worried about my brother who is increasingly becoming divorced from reality. He does not go out and is very anti social"

See how the Symbolic Meanings above weave together to form a key insight in the DREAM MEANING
